Vidda, i will certainly read up on Hulda and parasites. Last year, i visited an Asian country and contracted Giardia in my duodenum. It is the nastiest tasting bug on this planet, as far as i'm concerned. I read a bit of Hulda then, and using her principles (wormwood, blach walnut etc) along w/ a month of Master-Cleanse (i was ignorant of WF back then) i cured it completely. Obviously i got more to read.
Mighty, You are SO right. The watermelon, as much as it does "agree" with my stomach and fixes the post-broth rumbling, would probably weaken me. I've never had Watermelon just by itself, always w/ other fruit juices or veggie-broth, so i did not even stop to think. You guys are awesome sounding boards! Thanks for being so astute when reading my refeed experience :)
I'm going to make a garlic-free broth right now.
p.s. ok i'll wait with the eyes, but i really gotta squint to see.
