Listener Questions

1. Cold & Flu Season (26:15)

Since cold and flu season is upon us, can you please talk about healthier ways to manage the symptoms, if and when, they arrive?

Dana’s Cod Liver Oil Concoction! (36:30)

Ginger Fish Oil Shot 1 tsp of high quality fish oil (we prefer Rosita Cod Liver Oil) 1-2 oz of a cold-pressed juice (we prefer Evolution Brand Sweet Greens with Ginger)

Directions: Add the fish oil to a shot glass and fill the rest of the shot glass with the juice. Drink the shot down and enjoy all of the health benefits. It’s not the best tasting beverage you’ve ever had, but it is an easier way to take fish oil if you can’t tolerate just drinking the oil by itself.

2. Clearing Up Coconut Product Confusion (47:55)

I love coconut oil and milk or cream, but I find there are huge discrepancies in brand names and labeling. Of the cream, mostly I buy Trader Joes or Thai Kitchen which do not seem terribly unreasonable in fats at 16-17 grams per 1/3 cup. Other brands show 53 grams of fat for 1/3 cup. My traditional nutritionist said that I should not use any coconut products. Of the oil, I use the extra virgin type not heavily processed. I prefer it to the margarine/butter substitutes she suggested. I am wondering if she has only looked at the really processed brands, to come to her conclusions?

Joy’s favorite coconut milk (from Amazon): Natural Value
