I was a a vegan for 3 months over this summer and that is when I noticed some hypo symptoms really coming out...especially hair loss and dry skin (in the middle of summer here where it's super humid!) I knew something wasn't right. Vegan/vegetarian diets don't work for everyone! Personally, I think they are unhealthy. While I love animals, I do believe we need to consume some amounts of our animal friends for health and vitality...not excessive amounts, but just enough.
I think the Boron and Iodine are killing something in my intestines...perhaps I had some candida.
