It was time for my quarterly visit with my naturalist this week. As always, hormone balancing and kidneys showed up. I think the hormone thing will be forever, but we were able to remove black cohosh (at least for the time being). For now, it’s wild yam (which my body apparently loves), women’s x-action, flash-ease, and 7 keto.
Heavy metals always show up on my scan (they are so hard to avoid) but this time the biggie was a pesticide. Interestingly enough she had a few other patients who complained of mouth burning (not quite the same as my mouth pain). All were related to a pesticide, specifically one used on apples. And so, as a person who eats an apple (or two), every single day, it does make me wonder. I know you will all be shocked that I don’t do organic apples… My favorite apples are galas, and they are hard to find in organic… at least in my neck of the woods. So I will work on detoxing with my homeopathic, Addastat and Heavy Metal Detox, and yes, organic apples are in my future. (I do need to finish the two bags sitting on my counter first…) It will be interesting to see, once I make the switch, if there is any difference with the roof of my mouth.
There were a few other things recommended: V itamin D3 and Balance B, (of course). Super Algae for thyroid, Super GLA and Indole-3-Carbinol.
We tried a few new recipes this week. Both are from the McDougall Quick & Easy Cookbook…
Bean and Rice Gumbo – this was a tasty healthy gumbo made with black beans and black-eyed peas. No complaints
Polenta with Mushrooms – Polenta is a new food for us. Ethan, who likes corn bread and mushrooms, liked this one. David and I thought it was good, but not great. Not sure I’ll make this one again, although I would like to try polenta again. I find that the Quick & Easy recipes are certainly quick and easy, but not always the most flavorful. I think many of them need more seasonings.
Anyone have any good (healthy) polenta recipes?
