> Hi Katia,
> You've probably seen the many posts where I harp on ZRT Labs for saliva tests. It's the one my naturopath uses and a damn good one. They take into account particulars about you, like age, weight, medications, symptoms via a questionnaire and tailor the test to those variables. Their site
*** Interestingly enough, I just gave Katy the exact same resource/info in the previous posts.
Nope. Can't say I remember you harping on about ZRT labs; but good to know that we both came up with that as a resource. I had a pamphlet from my nutritionist and have actually been perusing their website today considering ordering one of those tests. You just reaffirmed that for me. the hard part is finding the right one to order. There are so many. One something like "comprehenvise thyroid test" costs $240 and tests estradiol, progest., testost., DHEA-S, and Cortisol and the throid tests.
My other thought about digital versus mercury is this. Always whenever hearing about what a normal or low body temp is it's talking about from a digital basal. Maybe however, there are different "normal" temps for a mercury that are a bit higher. So maybe the testing takes into account that mercury's and basal digitals are not reflecting the same temps.
Yes, it's sooooo hard not to partake. I'm still abstaining; but god it's hard. Esp. on nights like this - cold, dark, lonely. I'd rather be in a cozy restaurant sipping some Stag's Leap and flirting over candlelight. So the one every so often is working for you? I was thinking that I might just buy the most expensive bottle, indulge, drink the whole thing - get it out of my craving system. (b/c you know when you do, the desire and dream of was much better). than back to sobriety. I've been VERY good; not drinking at work or anywhere else for that matter. What I'm trying to remember is the thought, sight, smell, and taste is like a beautiful alluring woman pulling you in and then once there she becomes a monster. I trying to remember that ultimately drinking is the monster and that I can see past the seduction and say no.
