Re: Allergy testing for poorly teenager

There is a simple blood test available that can detect food allergies. See a naturopath and ask for this test. I found out that I was sensitive to dairy products and eggs, and eliminating those from my diet improved my health. The same for my daughter, who discovered a sensitivity to gluten, a commo...

Re: A small grassroots donation

The elements available for blogs are adequate at the free level, and can be upgraded if you are willing to pay for pro service. So far I have only used the free offerings, and that see...

A small grassroots donation

I live in Argentina, a country that is about ten years behind in its thinking about environmental issues. The stores here hand out plastic bags for everything, and they inevitably end up as trash in the canals and on the desert and at the side of the road. There is very little recycling, and garbage...

Re: Making Coulommiers Cheese

Green Aura: Yes, you can make the soft penicillin mold cheeses with pasteurized milk. You must add 1/4 tsp. calcium chloride diluted in 1/4 cup of cool water to the milk. These measurements are for an 8 litre quantity of milk. The results will be similar, but somehow the unpasteurized milk adds more...

Making Coulommiers Cheese

Here is a link to my blog post which shows how I make soft cheese. It is similar to French Coulommiers and takes about 4-6 weeks to ripen. The key is to use fresh unpasteurized milk with a high butterfat content.

Re: Menopause!

Milly, there are several natural herbs that you should start using now, to replace and balance hormones that are going to be disrupted by approaching menopause. I had all the unpleasant symptoms of menopause until I started to use Maca - an herbal remedy from Peru that provides a pseudo-estrogen. Th...

Re: New member from Argentina

Thanks for the warm welcome, everyone.
Rama Caida is the district where I live, just southeast of the city of San Rafael. It means "fallen branch" which seems appropriate, as I am the only branch of our family tree that has ended up this far South of the equator.

Re: Farm for sale near San Rafael, Mendoza, Argentina

This is a private sale, and we thought it might be of interest to your community. As for directing the real estate offer exclusively to South Americans, I can't see the reasoning behind that narrow thinking. This is the World Wide Web . San Rafael's population includes ex-pats from North America, Br...
