Well that makes me feel better...not that you have issues with vitamin c, im sorry you do....but...that I am not alone...I didn't know what to think?!
As for my time line...I ordered liposmal vitamin c on line, and it showed up on Friday jan 18th. I started taking a teaspoon in the morning on Saturday the 19th. ....by the following Friday the 25 th, I was hacking and coughing hard! So I doubled the dose, one teaspoon in the morning and one teaspoon at night to kick the cold out of me. By that Sunday the 27 th, I was so sick, I didn't go to work on Monday ..and I stopped taking it on monday the 28 th..I was fine the next day on tuesday and am still fine...so...some kind of a weird reaction?

i am aware of a healing crisis however i never put two and two together and considered it when it comes to vitamin c. now the question is, do i consider it as such and take vit c habitually despite my body telling me NO? how do i differentiate between a truly bad reaction and a healing crisis?

To get the best from flaxseed you need to get the seeds and gind them yourself - NOT the oil and NOT pre-ground!
Coconut oil - great as suggested - moisturizer, low temp cooking, deodorant, hair conditioner, lubrication... But aim for virgin organic cold pressed - especially if you are putting it 'down there'edit on 6-2-2013 by starchild10 because: (no reason given)
What Is a Healing Crisis? A healing crisis is the body’s sign of being overloaded and overwhelmed with the changes that are taking place on the road to becoming healthier. This is often due to the body suddenly recognizing and eliminating toxins that otherwise had just been sitting there. Donna Gates in The Body Ecology Diet refers to healing crises as something that the body does as it’s organizing a major cleanse. The first time I saw a healing crisis was when I put my daughter on a gluten free casein free diet (prior to GAPS); one of her cheeks turned bright red with the removal of gluten, which was acting like a toxin (or feeding toxins) in her body. As we went through the GAPS Intro I saw the same red cheeks. When I started her on B12 injections (B12 plays a huge roll in detoxification, which many GAPS kids have trouble with) she got night terrors/has trouble sleeping. Night terrors and trouble sleeping are other signs of her healing crises, though these also are signs that she’s gotten food she shouldn’t have or has been exposed to a toxin. This is where it gets tricky figuring out what is what.
