Re: FOOD AS MEDICINE and/or DINNER

ItalianBee....one could replace the soysauce with coconut amino acids or even just a liitle salt. I think the recipe does need the 'salty' flavor, maybe float a small piece of seaweed. WhiteHorse...yum! And yum again using infused vinegar! Yesterday at my clients house I oven roasted 3 organic beets...

Re: TURMERIC REMEDY FOR MULTIPLE SYMPTOMS

WhiteHorse...yup, turmeric is a tough one. The Golden Milk craze didn't take with me or my digestion...makes me burp A LOT! (I do want to dye wool with turmeric, I so love the color!)

Re: TURMERIC REMEDY FOR MULTIPLE SYMPTOMS

WhiteHorse...maybe you already tend to run hot?
With Cronehood I find I crave hot and spicey a lot less, too heating, and drying for my Vata/Pitta constitution. (My curry has been toned down in Heat, which I think allows the other ingredients to shine).

Re: Painful tendons in feet

Re: panax tincture

Lucky you! I too have wondered about the whole root, perhaps it has to do with the maker doesn't plan on using it anytime soon..has all the time in the world to let the menstrum do its thing...plus it looks cool haha. Pharmacist/Chemist used to be judged by the color of their chemicals, concoctions,...
