    I believe Matt mentioned 5×5 strong lifts and I am starting today. http://stronglifts.com/stronglifts-5×5-beginner-strength-training-program/

    I pretty much know nothing about lifting, so blindly following, but it seems like a good fit for me. Hoping the weight training will help boost hormone levels and build muscle. Have always been skinny (6’1″ and generally around 160 lbs.), so filling out the toothpicks would be nice. I tried testosterone injections and went up to 172 with noticeable muscle gains, but the effects faded, so trying the more natural route.

    Thanks for the reply. It’s very frustrating to me to see her go from one idea to another on the cause of her health problems and dive headlong into the ‘treatment’. I suspect that proper nutrition and some treatments could fix things, but trying to figure out what the magic combination is, seems nearly impossible to me. Maybe it’s not really feasible either because stress is another huge factor. She’s a type A personality and we’re raising 6 kids. Four are adopted, three have attachment issues, one has dyslexia and one has Cerebral Palsy. So yeah, we’re screwed! :)

    Thanks for the posts. My wife feels she has mold illness and has been doing the protocol outlined by Ritchie Shoemaker (Cholestyromine, mineral soaks, etc. but hasn’t done IR sauna). She’s was doing GAPS and now is doing low carb/paleo eating and has lost some weight and feels pretty good, but still has chemical, food sensitivities (esp. sugar). I found Matt about a year ago and am doing much better with eating (esp. carbs). Maybe I can get her to read some posts here on the forum and get her to rethink things. I wish I had answers for you. Best wishes on your recovery. Post back with progress please.

    My wife just bought some chia seeds and has made some pudding-type dishes with it. Also, I think there are some nut based cereals you could try.

    Jake, can you go into more detail about the liver thing? I’ve been hypothyroid and while eating has helped, I’m still needing to take desicated thyroid (3 grains/day). Do you have a list of symptoms, recommended tests to confirm, or treatment options?

    Some people have soft teeth that are prone to decay. We had to do sealants on some of our adopted Asian kids. I just found this: http://www.medicinenet.com/script/main/art.asp?articlekey=43098
