Hi WellTellers,

Not sure how active this board is anymore....

The last SCOBY I got from this board was from SarahK...(not sure if you are still visiting WellTellMe or not)

Thanks in advance to anyone willing to share a scoby!  You can email me at: k3thymes at
Special Needs & Birth Defects / Re: Infant surgery/anethesia

First, so sorry to hear your little one had to go through surgery.  Long-term stays in the hospital are horribly difficult, especially when it is because an infant has been ill.  <3 

How is your milk supply?  Have they had your daughter eating "solid" foods yet, or just milk and supplemental formula?  If your milk supply is up, personally, I would go that route - as nothing beats mama's milk when it comes to being just PERFECT for a growing babe... and absolutely BEST for cleansing and healing. 

Now, if your milk supply has dwindled (likely, considering your difficult circumstances), then you can try and bring up back up.  Taking it slow and steady, often a mama can continue get back into the swing of things with full-time breastfeeding.  The more often your little one demands, the sooner (and better) your milk supply will likely come up.  In other words, while you probably won't be able to fill her up completely at first, she will "demand" more milk by nursing often - this should stimulate a healthy milk production.  If you supplement her too much, she will fill up on formula, and won't demand milk as frequently. 

Getting back to just BF only works well, however, if YOU take care of yourself as well.  You must eat properly, try and rest... and make sure you drink enough, of course. 

The truth is though, you have been under a large amount of stress, so if you have to supplement a little bit so you can feel comfortable and relax with your sweet little one at home, then do so.  Give yourself some time to just BE a family again, and things should settle in.

Have you read Trim Healthy Mama?  If not, it has a lot of great information for nursing mothers.
Mama of four... one of which was in the NICU for a couple weeks.  Nothing as traumatic as your family has faced, but I can empathize with the pain of a hospital stay.  <3

my 5 month old daughter had open heart surgery a little over a month ago.We will be getting out of the hospital in the next couple of days. I too am wondering if anyone has any wisdom with cleansing the liver, building back up the immune system geared toward the heart. Also they have been "fortifying" my breast milk with formula. When we get home I know I need to get some extras in her but I would rather not do it with formula. Any advice would be much appreciated as this is a whole new realm for me.
Fruits & Vegetables / tall cold frame for tomato plants
« Last post by grandma of 9 on June 29, 2014, 11:56:33 AM »
Is it possible to use a tall cold frame for tomatoes in the cold months of Ohio?  Will the plants get enough sun on the stem?  I'd like to  grow fresh tomatoes as long as possible into the winter months.
Pregnancy / Mixing Maca and Chasteberry Tree (vitex)

Does anyone know if it's okay to take Maca while also taking Chasteberry Tree (Vitex)? Thanks in advance.
Thank you! I'll look it up! Yes, I have done a parasite cleanse. Haven't really done a heavy metal cleanse though, so I'll work on that!
Cimmaron, have you heard of the. Trim Healthy Mama book? I've heard many people have had lots good success with it and were even able to reverse their diabetes. Also, did you ever do a parasite cleanse or a heavy metal cleanse? I've read lack of hair growth can be parasites. I truly feel for all you are going thru and I hope you find more answers.
Congratulations on getting married!
Well, three years after my first post I'm still pretty much doing the same thing. 50ish carbs a day, moderate amount of exercise, organic whole foods. I've tried so many things I just got burnt out and quit worrying about it. Now I'm planning on getting married and really, really, really want to get my health better beforehand! I did figure out that I have plenty of energy when I am regularly drinking raw milk. My numbers are better than they have been the last few years, but still crazy. I have horrible acne, worse than I did in my teens. My hair won't grow. I have done a liver cleanse and treated for candida several times, but I think I must still have it. At this point, I'm not even trying to get off insulin; I would be happy just to have my numbers under control.
