I read that flaxseed is very calming, so decided to try dabbing some ground organic seed mixed with spring water, on an almost healed breakout on my cheek...
Big mistake as it made it 10x worse & I also spent the late afternoon & evening with a bit of a fever as well!!
Hmmm wow!! Just read on http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/fla...tient-flaxseed
to "Avoid topical flaxseed on open wounds or abraded surfaces..." Jeepers!!! No wonder I reacted?!

Wow! You got a quick, resounding "Nay" vote on that "remedy!" Never in a hundred years would I have thought that flaxseed would do such a thing! Thanks for posting your experience!   Wow!

Thanks for commenting Spring!! Yeah I am like that with my reactions!! (& thank goodness it was organic?! Mind you it was still most probably from China) At least I generally don't spend days doing something, before I know?! It takes long enough to recover so would take forever otherwise

BTW, flaxseed oil is one of the top 8 anti-inflammatory foods for Type Os, according to the latest newsletter:

Maybe this is why I still get occasional scalp dermatitis after 2 days of using my homeade flax hair gel - although, I'm not sure what has "abraded" my scalp.....

Thanks squarepeg!! I also just discovered to my horror, that the natural hair dye I used 2 weeks ago, has both castor oil & linseed oil in it I think I am allergic to all oils
Seraffa hope you solve that puzzle re the gel?

Hi, I'm new to swami and the eat 4 your blood type. Can't believe it's been around so long and I am just connecting.  I have so much to learn as I read the posts I realize how little I really understand the program. I guess one step at a time, sounds like many have done it for several years. I look forward to learning from you.  There will have to be a lot of detox before I even know what bothers me. Now I just feel yuk.  I'll just keep reading and I wonder if there are other A explorer threads that can help me.  Thanks

You will probably need to make your own milk, if water buffalo milk is not available at an affordable price.

Possible recipe

2.5 tbsp chia seeds
1/4 cup macadamia nuts
3 cups water
1 tbsp honey or agave

Directions

Soak chia and nuts in the water in a glass container for 4 hours or overnight in the fridge.
Shake the container a few times, to break up chia seed clumps.
Poor the soaked chia seed mixture into a blender and add the sweetener if desired.

Blend at high speed for approximately 2 minutes.

Just a B+ nonnie Explorer saying hello and Happy 2014!  A question for the forum..  I have been fighting MS for a year, does anyone know if bad VOCs in the home air can affect a person, making them feel weak and aggravating their symptoms?  Took me 3  weeks to figure out that I felt weak when the aircon or furnace started on High.  Also Searches said that other conditions can mimic MS so I am making a heap of questions for my next appointment.  Anyone got ideas on questions I should ask?

goat milk used to be neutral for me but swami put all animal milks on the avoid for me. never been a milk drinker and can't stand the taste of the nut/seed milks so I just leave it alone. since almost all available cereals have corn starch, wheat, or soy of some sort in them (all avoid) I just droped cereal all together. if I want a grain for bk I have oatmeal with hemp seeds, raw cacao (some times the nibs too if I think I will need the extra boost that day), agave for sweetness and a bit of ghee for fat content.
I don't know what a VOC is but I have noticed that I will have some problems when the new ac comes on at church. in fact I notice that a lot of people will start couphing and/or sneezing when it comes on. being new it could not be mold but with a fairly new building it could be any number of chemicals.
anyone have a mold killing bleaching alternative that works for the shower? last few times I had hubby do it because it dose not bother him as much as it dose me to use the bleach.


nothing to do? who has that!?

HEY FELLOW TEXAN!!!  
If you're a nonnie anything that is not "normal" for your environment can aggrevate your liver and affect your energy levels by impacting your bone marrow activity. I found this article on VOC's http://www.epa.gov/iaq/voc.html

Sure, take your pick:
Tea tree oil
White vinegar + borax
White vinegar + baking soda
Grapefruit Seed extract.

And good ol' ammonia

A TYPE EXPLORERS - please help if you can.
Do your portions of meat equal the portions Dr. D has suggested, or have you gone "over" without any repercussions?

I had to eat more meat while resting my adrenals, but I gained 10 pounds while doing it.....

I feel a lot healthier in different ways, except now I have high blood pressure.

Hello fellow explorers-  Just wondering how you all balance your hormones during menopause, and how do you deal with the hot flashes.  Is there any particular food/supplement that helps more than another?  Thanks!

Seraffa,
I don't know if this will help but when I ate chicken as freely as I ate turkey or fish, I gained weight...(and not changing my exercise or sweets eating habits!!!!)
I make sure now that fish is my first animal protein to eat 5 times a week as per my swami. Next, I eat turkey 3 times a week. I can only stomach scrambled eggs about twice a month. Chicken is too convenient but I am trying to eat a minimum!
