Can you tell me more about grapefruit seed extract? I hear it's powerful, for many things. Do you use it as a preventative or only in crisis? What will it do to my body?
I hear it "gets things moving"-so is it something I should only take if I am going to be home all day?
What has it healed for you?

It kills bacteria. I use it mainly to clean my wooden cutting boards after I cut up raw meat for my animals. I have also used it to help my body fight an infection. The thing is, it kills ALL bacteria, "good" and "bad", so it's not something to just take for the hell of it. You need to be as cautious as (one should be) with anti-biotics and follow up with a course of probiotics.

now how to we do that as rawbies? I'm guessing lots of kombucha and kraut?
I have this weird acne stuff that keeps popping up 1 by 1, but they are almost more like sores-but not quite. I also seem to be fighting a UTI at the same time. I have also been feeling kind "off" for a couple of weeks now...
I'm hoping that GSE could put me right again.
How do we know when we have enough healthy critters again? Is there a sign I could look for?

You can just buy a good probiotic supplement, but I think kraut etc. would be good (and good:D). I would say you can tell by your bm's. They should be normal, meaning formed but light, without any obviously undigested food particles. I would also go by how I feel. When healthy, you should have abundant energy.
Have you tried Cranberry d-manose in supplement form? I know the company Pure Encapsulations makes a very good one, but you would have to go on their website to find out who sells it in your area. We had quite a few patients who swore by it.

1 more ?
can you use it topically?

I take the stuff if I feel a cold coming on and it does seem to help. I really don't get sick . (knock on wood)
It tastes BAD, just to warn you! Yucky and bitter!
I choke it down in a bit of water with a straw. Disguising it didn't work for me. It just ruined whatever I put it in. You can put it into capsules and swallow it that way.
My daughter had great success with treating an ear infection and UTI with oil of oregano.(Oreganol) She took a few drops every few hours for a few days. She felt all better. This is also potent, but it's great compared to the GSE!

I wish I had read this before I took my 1st dose....BLECH!

If you don't have very resistant UTIs you can also alternate every hour the following:
1 8oz cup warm water with the juice of 1/2 lemon
8oz carrot/beet/cucumber juice
I have had reoccurring UTI's for 20 years and this used to work for me quite well.
Blessings and hope you feel better soon,
