Wow, Kari. I totally understand what you are saying, as it happened to me. I was so close to going to the ER; I just didn’t understand what was wrong with me. :( See, the same thing happens to me eating beef liver too. Maybe because it was raw? But I mean, I would freeze and cut them up into teeny-tiny pellets and eat a couple and start feeling things that very were similar to what I’d felt with the FCLO. Again, at this time, much like the with FCLO, I never thought it could be “beef liver” either as it’s known for being so healthy. :/ I may try a small piece again at some point, cooked.
Also, since posting this, I have had some cod liver oil. Nordic Naturals. It is what I used to get all the time and had no problems taking, but then I was informed of how ‘inferior’ it was to the GP FCLO and switched over, then got sick. The Nordic Naturals cod liver oil produces no negative effects for me.
I was so intimidated initially, but it is criminally simple! I even grew my own mother from a bottle of GT’s. Super inexpensive to brew your own and so flippin’ tasty!
RegL, thanks for your input! I brew my own kombucha, so I drink that. Also, I have access to really great local, plain yogurt from grass-fed cows… I just haven’t had it in a while for whatever reason. I’ll get some tomorrow! Thank you again for your insight! Much appreciated!
Eat for Heat really helped me out as well! When I had read that text, that was around the time that I was feeling better and I had started implementing those principals (less water was one of them). I’m just going to ‘stay the course’ and try not to resort to going back to familiar eating habits that I know aren’t beneficial to me. Thanks for your input, Tammy!
@ Elocin: if it is working out well for you and for your children, that is wonderful. Just monitor the usage to see that it is beneficial. My initial post was, by no means, to scare people away from fish oil or from CLO/FCLO. I just wanted to bring light to the fact that this costly “best-thing-that-you-can-do-for-yourself” – supplement was poisoning ME (personally) for close to 2 months. Because I chose not to listen to myself (as everyone was saying this could not be the culprit), I felt like a ‘bad girl’ for eating sprouted grains, for eating eggs, for having cream and tea, etc, etc… because it was more ‘likely’ that any of those things were causing such a reaction. I don’t really react negatively to much (I don’t seem to react to any of the common ‘bad guys’ with regards to food), so I just could not wrap my head around the fact that THIS could have been doing THIS to me.
I hope that you continue to get good results from your use of this product. So many people do. I, unfortunately, just feel like I’m going to expire when I consume it.
I was thinking about just getting some ‘regular’ CLO (Sonne’s #5 looks to be ‘good’)… but that’s the thing; I am wondering if I should just say “F” it to the fish oils in general.
Thanks, Matt. I’m going to check that out. I have taken Cod Liver Oil in the past (immediately prior to starting my dose with the FCLO), from Nordic Naturals. I had actually felt better during the winter and was just pretty spritely. I certainly hadn’t noticed any negative effects. But then I started hearing about the FCLO and just ‘had’ to get it; I’d been told that the Nordic Naturals was heavily processed and was an inferior product, etc, etc. So for WEEKS I have been off my rocker, feeling like I should go to the hospital, crying, etc. Like I said, beef liver seems to do the same thing to me! Almost instantly, I get bad nausea and my heart starts racing. Of course though, “These are super foods. The culprit must be something else”, is what I’d heard/been fed. ALSO, as I was sold (without actually experiencing any benefit) on the FCLO, I had ordered a face cream made with it as well. I put that on and it makes my heart race and my eyes/lips itch too. :/ Anywho, I have relief from those symptoms today (though the day is young) and I think it’s because I have not taken the FCLO. Yikes. :/ (Thank you again, kindly, for your input).
Thanks so much for your response, Amy. Much appreciated. Prior to taking the cinnamon one, I was taking the chocolate flavoured one. Honestly, I cannot remember if it really affected me, as I was incredibly sick at the time (viral infection/bell’s palsy paired with the inability to sleep, etc) anyways (and had those symptoms most of the time). I have been going crazy thinking that it’s everything else that I’m doing; I just never for one moment thought it could be this ‘perfect, sacred food’. Granted, I know so many have positive experiences with it. I don’t know if I even want to try it again; I don’t think it is worth the potential of becoming so ill again/spending that sort of money without the assurance that it won’t make me sick.
I have eaten raw beef liver in the past as well and it makes my heart race. :/ Hmmmm. Thank you so much again for your response! :)
