You won't get into ketosis by starvation.  You need to eat about 80% fat, and 20% protein.

Soy is harmful to health, so no. You should not eat this.

The companies that sell the grains??? and the people throughout history who have made kefir must have to make the grains without existing grains so how do you make kefir grains at home?

You're not alone! For me it wasn't kombucha, it was chia seed pudding. While my reaction wasn't quite as strong as yours (thankfully), the general outline was the same. FYI: I've learned that I don't tolerate sesame seeds very well either.

You're already under a lot of stress, going on a very low carb diet is not a good idea at this time. Wait until your adrenals are healed first, as this will add further stress. Cortisol is the signal used to tell the liver to create glucose from... (more)

I took a ham steak out of my refridgerator that was in a sealed wrap but was sticky.  I rinsed it and cut it up with navy beans in a crock pot.  Is this safe to cook low for 8 hours then take to a pot luck dinner?
