Digestibles

Here is a handy little page that gives some simple pointers on what sort of blood sugar levels to aim for. In short, your fasting level should be below 5.5 mmol/L, one hour after eating 7.8 mmol/L, and two hours after eating 6.6 mmol/L.

And here is a great post looking at how ancient cultures used to eat grains and legumes. They soaked, sprouted and fermented them, in order to remove the natural toxins and anti-nutrients such as phytins, lectins and tannins.

Here is a terrifying account of an extreme case of ME/CFS. Extraordinarily, he found a doctor who understood what was going on and saved him.

Dr Art Ayers talks
about a link between Celiac Disease and Hashimoto's Thyroiditis. This is interesting to me because my mum has Hashimoto's, and has had issues with wheat in the past.
