I love seafood so I do well with clams, oysters, scallops etc.
I've done castor oil packs before, I actually had it release stones and parasites.
Love cooked onions and now that you have opened my eyes to cooking my food more instead of raw ... I do remember losing weight around 2011 when I started cooking everything, sautťed onions, beans, broccoli etc. I'm excited to see how this changes my body's reaction to food.
Bloating is lower stomach but I've noticed if I am sensitive to something the bloating is just right below the surface of the skin.
I am taking advantage of the spices but not as many as you listed ... will stock up on those!
Love Indian food so I will learn to cook it!!
Also love seasame oil too
Don't know what Kitchari is will research that.
I do like fried food but it's rare, usually when I vacation at the beach. My favorite is fried oysters.
Again, I can't thank you enough ... I hope this thread helps someone!
Update: I just went to Mary Shomon site and I've never heard of MUCIN and that is exactly what is causing my bloating when I said it's just below the skin!! Wow this is an eye opener and I dug and found out NAC helps get rid of mucin since what I'm reading people say it's the hardest thing to get rid of ... I hope someone who is having thyroid issues comes across this.
