Thank you!! GheeWhiz is also researching and posting a lot in this thread, while juggling young kids and other commitments.  Congratulations too mate.  I am very thankful to her and anybody else posting, researching and giving feedback, like yourself now.  It all helps ...  And, it is also part of the therapy, making sure all muscles get a workout, including our brains ...   


Thanks for mentioning me Cristina.  We have to use it or lose it hey?! Muscle and brains and all, though we have to do the oppposite for the carpal tunnel / tendonitis sometimes.

You are very helpful too Cristina, so that was not a worry.     I've edited my quote.

Hey I didn't mean to get the violins out.  But while they're out..

The left arm has been good lately as my autoimmune problems have been not so bad lately thank goodness.  If it's not good I don't do much typing that day don't worry  .  It's a hangover from broken wrist as a kid and typing jobs for many years and un-known autoimmune problem.  

Going to see a Rheumatologist in January to hopefully get diagnosed (probably Oral Lichen Planus I believe had since 2001  ).  Last test my ANAs were 320 (80 is indicative of lupus), but I think that was exacerbated by Lysine I was taking a few months to keep cold sores away (not taking anymore).  Now I know that cold sores are a sign of acidosis from my kidney problem (they are impaired  .) So I'm working on acid/alkaline balance daily.  

As you may know, I'm also waiting for a colonoscopy and and endoscopy for my acid reflux (related to too much acidity I believe) and ?irritable bowel problem.  Also have women's problems.  Lucky I have the support of my partner at home he helps alot and the internet and you guys  .

I do go on the computer more when I feel too fatigued to do much else.  The friendship and brain stimulation and things I've learned on here are priceless.  The hope of getting better is the best that Dr D gives us.  

Physio told me not to bend the wrist while tensing it, that's really helped.  Washing up used to bother me more than typing.  He's also helped me with my left knee which has dislocated knee cap that clicks and mucks around and nerve catch in my left hip. My left side is definitely not my best side!

Physios really are worth their weight in gold, like Naturopaths.   and Cristina for organising this thread for the whole world!  Also the moderators on here and everyone who contributes to this fantastic community (hugs) to everyone.

Don't feel guilty is what I was trying to say on my last post.  I would probably be typing or on the computer even if this thread wasn't here.  I'm writing the story of Georgia's birth as well and research alot of health info on the internet lately.  

This forum is the best and I love contributing, it's alot more joy than pain.     How was anyone to know my health condition unless I put information on here like I just did?  Gotto go and cook dinner now, have been on here alot today while hubby and DD are out, very fun.

Thanks Cristina!  With all my ailments and everything I still think I'm lucky to be here and to have found alot of healing through Dr D and this way of life.  

Last word on my health conditions - I was also recently diagnosed with hyperacusis and tinnitus, no cure  .  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hyperacusis  

I have nerve damage to my right ear after ruptured ear drum many years ago after tropical ear and sinusitis (blowing my nose did the damage) (had a hole in my eardrum for many years after that too).  I get buzzing in response to loud and especially high pitched noies and daily pain and pressure in response to noise levels.  Wearing an ear plug most of the time and that fixes it mainly though looks really silly!  

At least one ear is normal though!

Totally explains my panic attacks and anxiety due to loud noise and amazing hearing (don't whisper something around me  )  We Unfortunately live on a main road too  

Also been fighting Candida.  Though thanks to the explorer diet now I'm winning and women's problems have improved remarkably!

Sometimes I do get sorry for myself, but mostly I feel lucky to be alive.

(hug) thanks mate

A rose by any other name (or a fish)..

I've changed my name to Symbi because I'm not really a Ghee Whiz that was just a silly pun.  Symbi is a nickname for symbiotic (not idiotic I know someone in the peanut gallery is thinking that), which is a state I have with someone close to me  

About Tinnitus. Saw this supplement in a chemist brochure http://www.tebonin.com.au/
Supposed to increase circulation and reduce tinnitus and vertigo. It is an extract from Ginkgo biloba.  Will try it one day if that's alright for my type.

Lola - Maybe when I give up wheat again after the colonoscopy (don't want to again till then so problem will show up) that will help it.  Does seem to go up and down with inflammation (not inflation) so there is some hope there

Sorry to go off topic here lately, will get back to more research soon.  Watch out smelly topic of beans are next!

GW, ooops, Symbi (hard to break habits), you deserve everyone's full attention instead of hiding in here.  There are many out there, particularly experts who know their food very well and may not get anywhere near this thread, but may have invaluable info for you.  I am sure moderators will be willing to shift any posts that started here to your new 'Symbi asking for assistance' type of thread.  Only if you want, I just want you to look after yourself and give yourself the attention and help you deserve.

Research on Yam and Sweet Potato and Taro:

I have picked up on a few posts around here indicating that there is still some confusion with these, so they deserve a research of their own.


http://www.dadamo.com/typebase4/depictor5.pl?458

http://www.dadamo.com/typebase4/depictor5.pl?323

http://www.dadamo.com/typebase4/depictor5.pl?416

Quick pickup:
Sweet Potatos: Rich in Vit A and C
Yams: Sucrose richer and hormonal balancing elements
Taro: Poisonous Raw but cooked leaves are powerhouse of Vit A! Corns (also soaked overnight or cook please) have Vit E and Magnesium.

Grouped a few useful links that may explain the different values for each in our food lists:

Nice work Cristina .  We have elephant ears (taro) growing in our garden, but haven't done anything with it.

Notice on here there was a thread about Butternut Squash.  I think that's american for what we call in Australia, Butternut Pumpkin.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Butternut_squash
http://simple.wikipedia.org/wiki/Squash_%28plant%29

I notice squash is a different food item for Pumpkin in SWAMI.  And there's many kinds of squashes. Even Zucchini is related to squash.

What sound would a squash make if you squished it?

Before you do, be sure to look at how to prepare.  

Nearly every part of the plant can be eaten if prepared correctly.

Raw The fruit, leaves, stems, and tubers all contain a poison.

thanks for the warning C_S.  

From Wikipedia:

In its raw form the plant is toxic due to the presence of calcium oxalate,[3][4] although the toxin is destroyed by cooking[5] or can be removed by steeping taro roots in cold water overnight.

Take care Symbi.

Thanks, I had looked that up and get worried about little one playing with the leaves, cos it oozes white stuff that has oxalic acid in it !     Kind of turns you off the plant.

Also how do you tell when the tubers are there and ready to pick?

The corns or tubers growing in the ground need about 8-10 months to mature, usually from spring to autumn. By the time the cooler days arrive the plant would have lost most of its leaves and will look pretty sad.  That is the time when you can harvest the corns.  Lift the plant carefully and slice the corms off from the plant.  Leave the original plant with most of the leaves sliced off, except for a young centre leaf so it can re-grow again for next harvest in another 10 months.  Actually at the top of the corms could be baby suckers that you can divide and plant in pots.

If I remember well, when planting taro, it is better to do it in spring and to let it sit in the ground for two summers, then harvest it in autumn.

Actually this plant requires further investigation.  I just notice is also related to the Xanthosoma saggitifolium which is in our food lists too. ...

Some other time, too late now to do research ....

Thanks mate,
Will try that next autumn.  DH grew up in PNG and his eyes lit up   like anything when I told him we have taro.  Thanks for the directions, you're very handy to know!

Research on Essene bread:

Wheat is a no-no in my swami, yet I have been happily eating this pure bio-dynamic sprouted Essene Bread, in moderation of course.

here are the ingredients:

Quoted Text
Bio dynamic certified wheat and Rye sprouted.  With filtered water.

Cooking aid: Organic Sunflower oil (Trace amounts.  Used to release loaf from baking pan)

Not bad for a bought bread.  And believe me when I tell you it tastes delicious, honey delicious!!!!!!

It is the PURE LIFE sprouted bread.

Nice work Cristina .  We have elephant ears (taro) growing in our garden, but haven't done anything with it.  Oh I remember them when we were kids...such nice soft leaves...didn't know that's how taro grew - or even at that stage what taro was... - it's popular here in NZ - the Islanders use it a lot...

What sound would a squash make if you squished it?  rofl ok what sound does it make??!!

Research on nightshades Bell Peppers and Pimento:

Australian New Zealand Food Standards government site:

Pimento Typebase:
http://www.dadamo.com/typebase4/depictor5.pl?308

In summary:

Bell Peppers = Capsicums

Pimento = Pimento (only because I have seen it as such in a supermarket here).  I cannot find websites in australia with clear indications that this is the US Pimento.

Requires further study.   Comments?
