I had today Pure coconut milk, I took only 100 g. How much should be allowed over the day?
Ah yes, I forgot. We eat here in the north moose and reindeer meat. Able how do you think about them. They are quite clean from nature but I don’t want to produce too much ammonia.

Hello, Thomas.

As far as herbal teas are concerned, the only reason you don’t see a lot of information on the forum about these is because, most leaf-teas contain mold, and we all know what mold can do to a Candida infestation. If you can find an organic tea there’s less chance that it’ll contain mold. Nettle Leaf is quite beneficial, but I imagine most teas would be alright including peppermint which should help with digestion.

I just wouldn’t overdo it with the coconut milk, Thomas, a small amount each day should be fine. It looks like you had about 3 1/2 ounces, and I think 4-5 ounces at a time would be acceptable – unless you experience some type of reaction, of course.

As far as moose and reindeer meat are concerned; the advantage here of course is the lack of hormones and antibiotics, which is a huge plus. In addition, for the most part the industry treats beef with an ammonia process in order to kill E. coli, which only adds to the amount of ammonia a person would ingest, and this wouldn’t be a problem with wild game. That’s in the states of course, don’t know whether it’s done in Sweden or not. So, as you mentioned, there’s still the problem of ammonia being released when the meat protein breaks down, and for this reason I’d still eat it very sparingly, maybe three times a week at the most.
