Slowly as the...

    Asprin/Coconut Oil Enema Potential Solution For Fungus

    So I haven't seen any threads on here that address this, but have heard both coconut oil and aspirin could work wonders on fungus. The only problem being they are mostly absorbed before they hit the colon. 1. Would there be any draw backs to doing an aspirin and/or coconut oil enema? 2. If no...

    I have consumed dairy regularly over the years, so it is nothing new for my body, but I never thought to ask if the pale stools were normal. I just assumed that it was, but so much is off about my digestion, so I figured I'd come here to ask. I get VERY pale stools from milk (whole or skim)...
