Flax oil

Rhonda,

I try to remember to take flax seed oil every day straight

up. 1-2 T. It was part of my recent 3-week juice fast

program and I'm trying to keep up the habit. My skin has

improved 100%. It has a nice nutty flavor (Jarrow brand)

and is quite palatable straight from the spoon. It's great

for lubricating the bowel and adding the good kind of

oil--full of Omega 3s and 9s, etc., which we know is

excellent for artery health.

Be sure to keep it refrigerated. I use it daily on my salads. I make my salad and then add a minimum of two tablespoons on my salad. That is my dressing. I salt it with "real salt" lightly. I also add it to my protein shakes. It makes your skin very smooth and silky. I like the taste of it. If you eat cottage cheese, then you can add cottage cheese to your salad by putting it on the very top of the greens, then top it off with the flax seed oil, I then sprinkle it with sunflower seeds. That is a wonderful combination that is supposed to be very good for cancer.

I guess I should have read the rest of the messages. I am just like Sam, I put it on and in everything. Unlike you would think, it isn't fattening like margarine or butter. Just don't try to cook with it! :-)

Quite right. I buy a balanced blend when it's available. Otherwise, I use

olive oil and eat quite a bit of fish which gives me different essential

fatty acids. All told, my intake is likely less than 1/2 cup a day of all

oils combined.

I'm working on lowering my blood pressure and cholesterol and these

quantities were recommended by different sources.

I mix mine in quark, 2-4 tablespoons in a fourth a cup of

quark(cottage cheese) is suppose to reduce your cancer risk according

to Dr Budwig. The quark has the protein to help your body utilize the

oils. Enjoy!

Dear Rhonda,

1/2 cup of cottage cheese with 2 tbls spoon of flaxseed oil once a

day. Contains Omega 3 and 6 oils. Needs sulphur to work (cottage

cheese contains sulphur). Do not heat because carcinogens could be

formed. Gets rancid quickly---keep cool in refrigerator and in light

proof bottle. Refer to work br Dr. Johanna Budwig for more info.

Be careful, it's use should follow certain guidlines.

Thanks everyone for all the wonderful suggestions on how to use and consume flax

oil. I will have to look next time for the Barlean brand so it will last

longer.

Yes, I live in Holland. Shame you people have to substitute cottage

cheese for quark cause its so wonderful!! I'm addicted to fruit quark!

Since reading info on flaxoil and the budwig diet, I've been doing my

flaxseed oil in quark and its working great! Now, the other problem

with living in Holland is...you cant find flaxoil...they use cold

pressed linseed oil. When I first read that I thought about linseed

oil and how its used to protect wood. But the lady at the store

assured me it was edible and the same as flaxoil so I tried it. It is

basically the same. Yesterday while I was out shopping, I found

something else to add to the flaxoil/quark combination. It says its

supposed to be used as part of the Budwig protocol. It looks like it

has different type of whole grains in it and lechtine along with some

fermented things LOL Hard to read it in dutch! I'm going to start it

today and see how it goes!

************************

Linseed and flaxseed are the same thing. It's funny, when I first started

reading Dr. Cabot's book and wanted to make some LSA, I went to the health

food store and asked for Linseeds. The lady didn't know what I was talking

about. Luckily I had the book with me and showed her. In the book it has

Linseed (flaxseed), so she told me to call it flaxseed and, yes, she had some.

The name on the package says lynolax. I took some today and it has

oats, linseeds and other strange looking things in it LOL It really

bloated me...don't know if its a sensitivity to the grains or the

seeds.

I'm really interested in omega-3 supplements because

I've read it can help in the treatment of bipolar

affective disorder (which I have). Does the flax oil

contain EPA and DHA? Is there any supplement you can

take with the fish oil? Thanks for any info!

& gt; It is alright to put the flax seed oil into the

& gt; oatmeal). & nbsp; Flax oil (an omega-3 essentail

fatty acid) is unstable at high<BR>

& gt; temperatures, but adding it to oatmeal when the

finished cereal is served<BR>

& gt; will not destroy it.<BR>

& gt;<BR>

& gt; An even beter way to provide the benefits of flax

oil is to use the whole<BR>

& gt; flax seed...not just the processed oil. & nbsp; We

buy the flax seed whole and<BR>

& gt; keep it in the freezer. & nbsp; We grind small

amounts (in a standard small<BR>

& gt; coffee bean grinder..Braun or Krups work well)

into a coarse meal and<BR>

& gt; keep it refrigerated in a small jar. & nbsp; We add

it to hot cereals and soups<BR>

& gt; right when we serve them. & nbsp; It can also be

sprinkled on salads, put into<BR>

& gt; smoothies, mixed with any kind of nut butter,

etc.<BR>

& gt;<BR>

& gt; There is excellent nutritional qualities in flax

beyond the omega-3 oils,<BR>

& gt; such as the lignans that are cancer preventative

and the water soluble<BR>

& gt; fiber. & nbsp; Actually, current research has shown

that the omega-3 oils in<BR>

& gt; flax seed aren't as readily absorbed in the human

gut lining (something<BR>

& gt; like only 3%) when compared to other animal based

omega-3 oils, such as<BR>

& gt; from fish oil (EPA and DHA). & nbsp; So, if you are

going to use flax, you might<BR>

& gt; as well get the most bang for your buck and get

the benefits of the whole<BR>

& gt; flax food rather than just the oil. & nbsp;

Besides, buying the whole flax seed<BR>

& gt; and grinding it yourself is IMMENSELY less

expensive than buying refined<BR>

& gt; flaxseed oil.<BR>

The flax oil should be refrigerated when you buy it

and there should be an expiration date. Make sure it

is fresh when you buy it.

Usually should be used in a month to 6 weeks after

opening.

If you keep it in the fridge unopened is it reasonable to expect it would

last six months ?

I understand you can freeze flax oil ?

Don't know if it lasts 6 months, I would say check the

expiration date. Yes, you can freeze it. I buy a bottle and pour half into

another bottle and freeze that cause I don't use it up quickly

enough.

Earl,

I thought flax seeds were good for you? Essential fatty acids. I bought

a combination flax seed oil and evening primrose oil to possibly help

with hairloss, as I have read about several people that it helped slow

down the shedding. Evening primrose oil is also good for menstral

problems I have heard many times.

Take care.

Love and Peace,

All I can tell you is that unsaturated fatty acids cause massive free

radical proliferation and damage. That includes flax oil.

Now, linseed fibre is quite beneficial, after the oil has been largely

removed.

Evening primrose oil has been recommended for PMS, so has estrogen!!!

Estrogen causes PMS and thyroid + progesterone will eliminate PMS.

[which is why I keep telling you all that the Hormone Regeneration protocol

was designed to eliminate the auto-immune disorder that causes thyroid

dysfunction and by eliminating all pathogens, restoring gut function,

restoring thyroid function, balancing blood sugar and supplying

progesterone, we can eliminate most health problems.

Yes, there are variations on this, but this is a successful basic program

proven in my clinic over many years.]

The lignans in flax seed seem to very useful. The oil without the lignans is

just another PUFA or poly unsaturated fatty acid...which causes free radical

damage.

Coconut oil is coconut oil. They don't do much to it.Its solid white at room

temperature and soon liquifies at body temperature...which animal fats dont

do. Animal saturated fats remain solid at body temperature.

Earl

flax oil

Wow! I didn't know that. I was believing that flax oil is so good for us

according to health " experts " . What about the seeds? I know they have oil

in them, but aren't they beneficial because of the lignans? By the way,

where did you get this info.? I'd love to read it for myself. Is there

coconut oil just anywhere? Are there special types or certain ways of

getting the oil that I should look for?

Can you tell I'm new to this list? Thank you for your help.

My data suggests that flax oil causes inflammation.

Inflamed joints are due to the organism helicobacter and needs a natural antibiotic to take it out.

ImmunoGuard is a natural antibiotic and can be had from www.thyrodine.com You may be able to find some form of natural antibiotic in the health food store...echinacea/golden sels/chaparral type. And Psyllium Huills complex a full tablespoon in apple juice. The natural antibiotic you'd need to take 4 or 5x a day and the psyllium hulls before bed and upon arising...for 2 weeks. Then get a probiotic and take 3x whatver it recommends a day.

You would also need to clear the gut and re-install correct intestinal bacteria [this is Phase-I of the Thyroid Regeneration protocol.

Look in your health food shop and see if yiu can find a formula with boswellia/celery seed/ginger/turmeric. Liquid herbs best, tabs OK.

You'll also need glucosamine and MSM capsules, maybe 6 a day for awhile.

Klaper is no dummy but I have no confidence in flax oil
