Thanks Isa and Possum!  

Oh yes a big cross on the top of the hot cross buns I should have realised it was trying to tell me something.  

I was only on those nasty tablets for a very short time and won't be doing that especially after I read they tax the adrenals, that may be how they make people feel better?  Seems like they don't know.  How can they give medicine that they don't know how it works?  With their scientific method and all.     Profit, that's how.

Just found out the results from my Colonoscopy and Endoscopy (4 months later!) that's the public system here so it didn't cost me anything and I'm very thankful for it.  I had mild antral gastritis (inflammmation in the bottom of the stomach).  Negative for H Pylori.  And my villi were normal so no Coeliac!

The haemorroids have come back to haunt me lately though since I stopped having oats and eating less grains.  Like they told me I must eat more grains and fruit and vegetables.  Well I need to follow the great plan that Dr D has laid out for me!

I told them about the mucus and dark faeces I get once a month and he said that's a sign of IBD but he thinks I just have IBS.  I'm not that sure about it, but I'm sure through diet whatever I've got will get better anyway.

Went and got some Custard Apple (Annonaceae family - related to PawPaw in SWAMI Diamond food) So that will be a new exciting taste sensation! Having lots of fruit and lots of gardening exercise yesterday the constipation has gone and had a great sleep last night.  Must keep that up!

Will check on the vitamin K issues and tyrosine if I get down again, thanks Isa!

What sinusitis?  What used to hang around for weeks like a barnacle has gone  
Is it legal to feel this good?  

Yesterday had a detox day where I ate a lot of fruit (currants, boysonberries, blueberries, raspberries, grapes, plums, mandarin (tangerine), banana, apple) and then had a vegetable soup for dinner with turnip, parsnip, carrot, pumpkin, celery, red lentils, sea salt, broccoli, green beans, little tamari, basil from the garden, mixed italian herbs (compliant) with some basmati rice.  It was delicious and today I feel fabulous.  So many diamond foods and superfoods, make you into a superwoman!  Well almost.

Also didn't take any supplements at all to give my liver a break.  Only mistake I made was to try some A2 milk which inflammed my stomach.  I thought it may be better than normal milk?  but not for me obviously.

Will get some cod liver oil and do the proper detox thing soon.

Symbi, I know with Florinef it is given with Potassium because the drug leaches Potassium from your system.  Licorice works on the system just like Florinef so my guess is that you need Potassium for the Licorice as well.


I find that licorice makes me need potassium in a big way. I think my adrenals just can't deal with licorice; I don't know if it's because of the medications I once had to take or if I've been that way all along. Going off gluten has definitely upped my energy.

Symbi, it sounds like you are on the road to health with your Nonnie status and the right foods. I haven't done the castor oil detox, but I seem to periodically get some detoxification from the diet itself. I try to drink some juice most days. Maybe the Explorer catalyst and Redoxa help as well.

I like the pic! You and your daughter look so much alike.

Thanks Chandon!  Was just thinking of you yesterday, glad to hear from you.  I love juices too.  At the moment I have 1/5 watered down store bought no preservative juices but want to get a juicer.  Also want to get into sprouting!  Will check out those supps you mention.

Thanks, the more I follow the diet the more similar my daughter and I look (I look healthier and younger and she is growing up !). Was told today that I am glowing.  That's nice!

Loving knowing I'm a nonnie and eating the right foods.  Spelt is beautiful and goes down well, I have esckewed all other kinds of wheat (and oats for now) and feel amazing.  Made pumpkin scones with spelt yesterday and they powered a fun and harmonious family get together.  Others had whipped cream on theres, I had ricotta along with blueberry and MIL's homemade Rosella jam (has some cream in it and it's good!).  Okay there was some sugar in the jam I guess!

About licorice tea, I only have it when I need it and not more than once a day.  Now the heat has gone I'm not needing it every day anymore.   Carob, chocolate, yogurt and many other yummy things are good sources of potassium I make sure I have some of those too.  Thanks for caring and sharing!

Thanks for reminding me Possum, was going to look it up cos I don't know what it is either!  

We were joking that we'd find beaks and bones in the jam (rosellas are also a colourful of parrot here in Australia).     Nah it was delicious.  

It's a subtropical plant a type of hibiscus: http://www.annettemcfarlane.com/Stories/rosella.pdf

It must be neutral I guess and fair game

Thanks Cristina!  I say that alot don't I    You are sweet.

Cheers to being healthy !     Bottoms up on a green tea for me and coffee for you.

Made a mistake to try and save money bought some soy sauce instead of tamari and got inflammation next day straight away.   Wow wheat really does it to me!  
So I'll have to get Tamari again and I shouldn't use much as it is a black dot (oops).  It's hard to totally avoid since I make stir fries and love it on rice.  Once I tried a stir fry without soy sauce (added white wine for a fermented flavour) but it was too rich for our little one.    Maybe sherry would be ok?  Will have to look for some tips.

Was looking at fingerprints and I think the ridges are higher than they ever where before even after no wheat for only a few months !  They were very worn before.  Going to do the proper fingerprinting from the kit soon when hands aren't busy cooking, typing, washing up or cleaning and when DH is home !

Do you have a scanner at home?  I used that for our family, somebody suggested it before and I find it easier to read because I can zoom, change colors, brightness, contrast, hue... to make the prints tell their story better.
