Wow, you're great at twisting words, I didn't say RDAs were created because SAD eaters suffer from malabsorption. I said the numbers were inflated because cooked food and junk food eaters suffer from malabsorption. If you read "sound medical science" the same way you read my posts, I'm pretty sure you don't understand three quarters of what you read, and you're just as good at twisting the "science" to try to make it sound like what you want it to be.
i think you could do with some lessons, you talk about me twisting things.
ok lets start - Malabsorption is a state arising from abnormality in absorption of food nutrients across the gastrointestinal(GI) tract.
what you said - "yeah, the RDAs are way inflated for malabsorption that cooked food and junk food eaters have." - ok you never said meat, but cooked food and junk food eaters all suffer from malabsorption disorders according to yourself.
lol there is a difference between that no-one absorbs 100% of the nutrients they eat some are excreted and so on abit different than having a malabsoption disorder of the GI tract.
You have alot to learn grasshopper with that attitutude:), why do you need to get personal saying im some kid in a basement when you cant debate logically?
Wow! Here you go again. Please find where I state that someone has a malabsorption disorder of the GI tract.
I've seen you posting on here for months. You try to sell your supplements; you try to say almost everyone needs these bitter nettle leaves or some other nonfood; I'm very suspicious of your purpose here; it seems you want to get a rise out of people.
It probably made your day that I even acknowldged/replied to your post. I'm going to start ignoring them.
read what you write you said they suffer from malabsorption. Now look at the post up and see what the definition of malabsorption is. Now go back and read what you wrote again lol.
yes and minus one post to the girl from england yesterday ive never said buy from my store. I like to think ive helped a good few people on here with there health problems when i dont have too, takes alot of time to write some of these posts. I dont sell bitters but yes i recommend them as many of the posts ask for bitters to be called for. I sat and gave advice on this forum for around 100 odd of my posts long before i opened/had my store so dont start simply because you cant debate.
lol ok chief if theres anyone who wanted a rise it must have been yourself with your cheek saying i was some kid in a basement etc, i never had to get personal with you so why did you with me?, i come here to learn and to help those who i feel i can help, i can see im definitley not going to learn anything from you and i aint doing the other so i wont be responding from here on to you.
Blue Eyes-that's an interesting article. I don't see radicalness in it. It's presenting an idea different from what the mainstream medical profession has taught us, which gives it more credibility imo :P
Well ladies, here's some info that may be of interest. I'm 42 and still get my monthlys- in fact one is gracing me with its presence right now lol. When I was in my 20s I had heavy painful ones but that stopped in my 30s. I have been vegetarian since I was 18. I had some periods of veganism in them but fell back on the cheese wagon. I have been fully vegan for a year now. My mother is not vegetarian and eats some dairy- mostly milk in her tea (she tried soya and hated it, but wanted to like it) and some cheese and margarine. She eats chicken and fish but no other meats. She had a blood test recently and was told she is anaemic and not absorbing protein properly! She has a polyp in her stomach and gets bad indigestion- she has had this problem for years and been taking meds for it. She found out that the meds have caused her mal- absorption of iron. She had no problems in her menopause (she is 67 in November) - no hot flushes and took no HRT. She used to give blood as she is O+, and the blood people are always looking for O+; often they would say she was anaemic and refuse to take her blood and would even say that she should be feeling dizzy and weak but she felt fine. There seems to be a natural tendency in the women in her family to have what is seen as a lower than average iron count and lower BP. My BP is a little lower than average. I don’t know what my iron count is, but I feel fine- no signs of anaemia. So, what the medical people say is average and the ideal can vary- some people may have a lower BP or iron count and be fine. My mother has now been told she has diverticulitis- the doctors have told her to eat more fibre. Yet, she doesn’t have constipation, which they say causes this disease. I have told her about wholefoods- but she used to be a nurse and has always eaten healthily, as cooked omnivores go. I think a lot of the meds the doctors give us cause these probs.
Sorry, I was a little off topic- back to periods. Since being vegan I haven’t seen any change in my cycle- when I have been high raw for awhile I’ll let you know if there are any changes- it might be more apparent in a middle aged lady!
A friend of mine – much younger than I- 23, is always tired ( she is vegetarian, her boyfriend who cooks for them is vegan and makes lovely balanced meals) was tested for anaemia- but she isn’t anaemic. I have much more energy than her, yet I’m vegan- so does her vegan boyfriend- so much for vegans being whacked out as the nay sayers would have people believe!
I am having the same problem and posted about it. So should I try adding raw seaweed to my diet?!?
I've really gone of the wagon with raw food and this summer it is my goal to become 70 to 80% raw again.
But even now I still don't have periods and when I do it is really light.
But I am still ovulate....
I just really want to get my body on track again and start having regular periods each month so any help you ladies can offer would be great. .
I don't think there's gonig to be an exact answer. You might go for a jog one day and it will start; you might eat some crappy food and it will start; you might sleep too much and it will start; you might be stressed out and it will start.
Why on earth do you want to bleed every month? LOL, I'm still waiting for my period/bleeding to stop - not holding my breath.
By the way, I DON'T eat seaweed, haven't for probably over a year, and I still have periods.
