In GAPS, you aren't supposed to drink bone broth until after GAPS intro - during intro you drink meat broth (a shorter cooked broth made with more meat, and less simmering of bone), which has less glutamates than the ultra long-cooked bone broths... (more)

Warts are a virus. The healthier your body is, the less influence things like viruses have. I think you could heal them by healing your body. Why not?

Gluten can create migraines, allergies, you name it. If it's better on gluten-free, then you were gluten-intolerant and you didn't know it. Just like 90% of us around here.
