Q & A #1: Suggestions For Constipation (Great way to begin, right?)
Q: From Tammy: “Kelly, what do you tell people to do for constipation? I don't know what's wrong with me, but I haven't been able to ‘go' regularly for years.”
A: Just recently a friend of mine was having the same problem, so I updated this post for those with digestive issues and sent it to her. Within TWO days she was able to go to the bathroom and she has gone every day since.
Q & A #2: Help for migraines and anxiety?
Q: From Jane: “I've suffered from migraines and anxiety for years and am tired of taking medicine that's supposed to help, but instead has numerous side effects. Any advice for me?“
A: My biggest advice is to take it from someone who has been there. My friend, Jill, wrote a guest post on this topic that I know will help you: 20 Tips on Fighting Anxiety, Depression and Exhaustion Naturally. Good luck!
And here's one more on how to prevent migraines and what to do once one has already set in…
Q & A #3: Recommendations For Sore Throats?
Q. From Jo: “Kelly, Do you have any recommendations for sore throats and belly aches caused by drainage? I know this sounds bad, but the one thing that's quick and easy for my tummy is McDonald's; however I just listened to a microbiologist this morning that said a can of soda will suppress your immune system by 95% for up to 5 hours, so I guess I'll be getting a lemonade! Not sure if it'll make that much of a difference – sugar is the breeding ground for germs! I've ordered the powder probiotics from your link for my husband and me and also for our little ones, but I haven't invested in anything else, still trying to do my research. I'm a little timid about the colloidal silver and trying to decide if we really have use for it, I may go for the tea tree oil instead. I think the next thing I may go for is the fermented cod liver oil, but again, trying to decide what our family's use for it would be – is it an immune booster? That's what we're really needing right now to fight staph infections. Can you recommend any other immune booster supplements or foods/recipes for a newbie? Thanks so much! Jo”
A: Fast food is the WORST thing, no matter if you're getting lemonade or pop or whatever it is there. There are so many mystery chemicals and junk in fast food that cooking at home is important, even if you're cooking fast things. Also, here's a post for you to check out with home remedies for a cold or ear ache and how to avoid colds, flu, infections and antibiotics. There are many suggestions there for building up your immune system, and yes, fermented cod liver oil is a big part of that! Be sure to read the comments there for loads of good information.
Q & A #4: Recommendations For Sea Salt?
Q: From Lycette: “So can you tell me what sea salt do you recommend?
A: Lycette, I buy this Sea Salt.
Q & A #5: Is Beer A Fermented Drink?
Q: From Jim: “Is beer a beneficial fermented drink like kombucha or kefir soda?”
A: Julie from Cultures for Health answered this question in the comments of one of my posts a while back, here's what she said: Fermentation refers to “an enzymatically controlled anaerobic breakdown of an energy-rich compound” (according to Merriam-Webster) so many foods, including beer, definitely qualify. There are different types of fermentation though. For example beer is normally fermented using an added yeast. This is different from something like lactic acid fermentation which is how foods like yogurt, kefir, sauerkraut, etc. are fermented. So beer would be a great deal closer to bread made with commercial yeast than it would be something like sourdough. Normally when we talk about the benefits of fermenting our foods, we are discussing lactic acid fermentation which results in lots of beneficial yeast and bacteria. Beer is a bit different but certainly the process has its benefits in terms of breaking down the grains, etc.
