I'm considering using it for the inflammation in her achilles right now, but would prefer to pass on it if really strong benefits aren't there (after all, she eats ghee regularly from Ancient Organics).  I think that I'll wait for my D'Adamo order to get her and start with that.  Thanks!

She's currently getting ultrasound every day, deep tissue massage and fascia work 2-3x per week, is taking nightly ice baths...


Sorry for cutting off your post there  

As I understand it, the ice is to reduce the swelling, but to heal it it also needs bloodflow. I found infra red light very helpful there. Might be worth running that past her physio- see what s/he thinks of that.

No thoughts on the cod liver oil- sorry!

Thanks yv!  That's why she's doing ultrasound..as recommended by the PT!  I'll look into infra red, though, too!

I'm thinking about getting this for my daughter:

http://www.greenpasture.org/public/Products/CodLiverOil/index.cfm


It's fermented cod liver oil.  Any thoughts?  She's already eating ghee regularly each day....

Any thoughts about the cod liver oil, too?


It's the brand of cod liver oil I use and it digests easier than others I've tried, including Carlson's.  Of course, I still get plenty of the type B flax.

I used Green Pastures in the past and found I was happier with Carlson brand Fish Oil. If you do try Green Pastures, I will recommend you stay away from the mint flavour. That is something that just should never have happened (from experience, bleh).
So you didn't like the mint...You just reminded me I have a really nice tuna recipe that strangely enough had dried mint as one of the ingredients
I find the fish oil capsules with lemon I can take but I will burp lemon afterward for quite a while, however that is probably better than what happens to me if I try the ones without lemon, where I burp fish afterward??! Does anyone know if either of those reactions indicate a problem?

My friend has a Ph in marine polution and she says most of the krill oils she testes was slightly rancid.

There were other reasons why it wasn´t as goods as real fish oil or CLO.

She say Nordic Naturals and green pastures are among the best/cleanest on the market,
