    Becoming aversive to milk and eggs?

    For 2 weeks or so I've been doing a bit of a SIBO cleanse with berberine, oregano oil, black cumin seed extract, and flowers of sulfur for a few days at the start.

    Here’s how to get all your vitamins and minerals without vegetables

    Lucerne 1% Milk does not contain emulsifiers

    Good news everybody. I contacted Albertsons/ Safeway about Lucerne 1% and what emulsifiers they use (the company owns Lucerne). It’s the same brand Ray used to/still drinks and I can see why because it does have a pleasing aftertaste that others milks do not have, After about a week waiting to...

    Why can I only tolerate whole milk?

    Is it normal to get very pale stools from drinking lots of milk?

    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)...

    Milk Tongue

    I've been drinking more milk than normal (not a huge amount by any means), and have noticed that my tongue has acquired a white coating. It seems to disappear when I stop drinking milk for a few days. It's unsightly and not easy to scrub off. Do any of you milk drinkers have this same problem?
