A Roman naturalist named Pliny the Elder discovered the healing power of black walnuts in the first century . Herbalist Nicholas Culpeper prescribed walnut to draw poisonous venom from snake and spider bites in the 17th century. Native Americans used the bark, leaves, husk and nuts from black walnut trees medicinally, particularly as a mosquito repellant and to treat skin conditions and psychological disorders. They were also the first to use hulls as a natural laxative and for eliminating parasites in the intestine, which is the most commonly implemented today.
Of course I am still talking to the “wall” here who chooses to ignore basic reasoning which I will do no further, your original post has been corrected some of the negatives of the Sugar Alcohol have been put forward that is all I wanted to convey to others, that and a clearly far superior option exists to those actually open-minded enough to look further into it and actually do so. You can continue to try and defend Xylitol and yourself til the Cows come home it won’t change the fact Stevia is a much more natural and proven safer and thus better option
I have been taking a zinc supplement in a high dosage, (75mg, built up over a few weeks) as recommended by my practitioner. I have had long standing systemic Candida on and off for many years (30). I have been able to get it under control to a certain extent, but never really got rid of it. Any stress or upset, and it comes back. I have been on many different supplements over the years, and some have been better than others. However, through doing a lot of research myself, and reading articles on Candida have come to the conclusion that I have Copper Bio-unavailability. About 2 months ago, I did a taste mineral test, I was deficient in every mineral, apart from Copper – which tasted awful. My practitioner suggested a high zinc supplement for a couple of months to see if this would help sort my mineral levels out. I am just over a month into the regime, and I feel better than I have done in a long time. My only concern is with me taking such a high level of zinc, how will I know that the bio-unavailable Copper is being released. I have been having quite a few die-off symptoms, which are slowly going away. And am I in danger of being Copper deficient? Should you take Copper supplements if you have bio-unavailable Copper circulating in your system? I am going to do another taste test soon, to see if my mineral levels have gone up. Would like to know your opinion on this please.
