I hope you don't mind if this week I share with you a few web-sites I have been finding that have helped us along the way.
The SCD website
Sometimes on the GAPS journey one or other of us has got 'stuck' and while researching for help I found the SCD website. The SCD diet is the diet that Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride tweaked to form the GAPS diet. So they are closely related. The other week there was a fantastic free webinar which was very helpful.
Here are some of the pages I have found helpful:
On understanding 'die-off':
When you have a digestive issue you can't resolve:
If you are wondering if you have low stomach acid:
Another website I have got quite excited about is how to make your own shampoo and deodorant - natural and free of toxins.
Other recipes I have seen in the past have been too complicated, but these are easy and seem to work - on me at least!
Another 'shampoo' I have been using recently, is just egg - yes, all the egg, and it works very well. Just be sure not to let the water get too hot, or you'll have scrabled egg hair! I follow it with a cider vinegar rinse. The only slioght drawback is that I have found it drying my scalp, so I alternate every few weeks with the one above. It really is a case of experimenting to see what works for your hair.
Natural Remedies for a wide range of conditions
Husband sprung the most enormous cold sore in the summer after a trip to the beach - we discovered that sun exposure can activate them, but this was a whopper and he suffered it for a whole month before we finally got rid of it using natural unheated honey (not actually one of the suggestions here, but while I was looking for help I found this website and will return as needed.) I have since found help for other things.
Please remember that I am not a doctor and these are only suggested ideas - all medical conditions must be checked with a certified doctor first.
