Hello everyone - I have been here but have not had alot to say!!

Good Afternoon Lovely People!

As I said, I have been reading posts but have not had much to say. For those who do not know me, I started on NDT in March this year. I have built it up gradually to 3 grains per day taken at night - I went up to 4 grains at one point but think that was a bit too much - and it is difficult to say at the moment as I have gone down with the blasted flu. The one big thing that has happened is that the dreadful hand eczema I had is almost gone completely - this is possibly because I actually have a dermatology appointment - well - nearly. And a strange little occurence - I got a cold sore as I often do when stressed - I always dab a tad of neat alchohol on it and it stops it in it's tracks - vodka in this case. I don't drink it these days but I like pickling plums etc in it. Anyway - it had a marked effect instantly and slowly but surely the eczema went away - probably the NDT as well, but it certainly made a difference. I have also lost some weight - about 6 lbs, which doesn't sound alot but it has made a difference to my clothes. I didn't think I was going to survive after Christmas last year but hey ho - I'm still here!!

Love to everyone who knows me and also to those who don't!! XXXXXXXXXXX

Good to hear from you and glad things are on the up ! Can you give me the recipe for the plums in vodka. Have just poached some today in red wine and cinnamon then zapped them with a good helping of sheeps' yogurt when cool - yummy ! We only have seasonal fruits here mostly - so plums and damsons it is - along with pomegranates and of course oranges and lemons now are in season....

Hi Sheenah, good to hear from you and I'm glad you're well apart from the flu. Pickled plums sounds nice :-D


Hello Sheenah and pleased to hear that you're making progress. Well done on the weight loss, was that due to NDT?
