It was recommended that I take a secretory IgA test to identify potential food intolerances. Does anyone know anything about how accurate these tests are? As well as actually, how they work? Thanks in advance! PM

Hi Primal Mama, A secretory IgA test is similar to a home pregnancy test. It uses antibodies to bind to and detect the proteins thought to provoke your food allergy/intolerance. To diagnose a food allergy, one shouldn't begin with antibody... (more)

If it is the diuretic effect (it probably is, IMHO) a simple test will let you know the answer. Pick some dandelions leaves (say, 2 oz.) and eat them in a salad. That is a stronger (not to mention healthier) diuretic. I eat 2-4 salads at each... (more)

I use coconut flour as a binder. It works great. Don't go overboard with it though, it is VERY thirsty and will suck up all of the moisture if you use too much. I'd start with a small amount, blend, then add more if you need it.
