What food serve as natural GABA alternatives?


I am looking for an alternative to GABA. Would like to try this to counter my overactive nervous system. Having food intolerance and hypersensitivity. Use to drink 3 or 4 cups of coffee a day without problem. Nowadays, I can tolerate even 1 cup.

You have Adrenal Fatigue! I had the same problems and went the natural path as well. I healed myself with daily intake of organic coconut oil. (not liquid kind,should be white and solid) I put this on my toast instead of butter with a cinnamon/sugar mix. Yum! Also started morning yoga with meditation. Damn the stretches hurt at first, but now I can't live without em. Here is the site that I found to help me find what I needed. Just type in what your trying to cure.

When I get bit, the bite area usually swells up to be the size of a golf ball to the size of a grapefruit. My latest on is on my knee and swelled up so much I couldn't walk. I have been placed on antibiotics and in the past prednisone.

I don't like to be on medication if I can avoid it, are there any suggestions to how I can curb my hypersensitivity to mosquito bites?

Is it cent percent sure that after circumcision the hypersensitivity of my glans will go for ever?


I am suffering from phimosis. Circumcision is the only way. But if my hypersensitivity of glans will not go, I cant wear any dress.

Please answer to the question only.It is urgent. Don't advise me to avoid circumcision.
----------

After circumcision, some guys, especially those who had it done because of phimosis and therefore never really had the head exposed before, will find the glans become extremely sensitive to touch,
However, overtime it will become used to it, from rubbing against things like clothing, and you will no longer feel so sensitive. Just one of those things you might have to put up with while it heals, if you have circumcision.  (+ info)

How do food addictions and allergies work?


I read that food allergies can become addictions because our bodies craves the food we are allergic to (some, not all obviously) and can lead to the addiction of that food. This is counter intuitive on so many levels lol So maybe I understood incorrectly.

Can someone explain the link between food allergy and addiction? Is this pseudoscience or real? How does it work?

Serious answers only.
----------

I'm allergic to eggs, nuts, peanuts, and tree nuts and I've never heard of this. I'd say it isn't true because once you eat a food your allergic to it makes you feel so uncomfortable and bad that you'd never want to feel that way again. For example once I ate once of those really big Laffy Taffy and who knew those have eggs in them and the little ones don't. Anyway my throat swelled up and it was difficult to breathe. I don't think I'd become addicted to something that makes me feel that awful.  (+ info)

Does storing food in pots and pans in the refrigerator poison the food?


My mom used to always tell me to put left overs in a tupperware and place in the fridge. She said the if you put the pot or pan in the fridge to store the left overs, it would poison the food. My boyfriend does this all the time and I've always refused to eat the food. Well, now I'm sick and he made some chicken soup. He put the soup in the fridge, in the pot and gave me some for work today. I'm scared to eat it because of what Mom used to always say but I can't seem to find anything on the net about it. Has anyone heard of this? Is it true that refrigerated food in pots poisons you?

The soup was made Monday night and has been in the pot, in the fridge, since about 3am Tuesday morning. How do I know if the pot is aluminum?

----------

No that does not make you sick. I do that all the time.
Its best to not store in the pan longer than 24 hours but if he did the soup last night you aren't sick from the way it was stored.
I think the warning came about because pans were made of coarse metals and iron pots and that can leech into food.
Most pots now are stainless steel.  (+ info)

What food to sell at a high school's fundraising event?


We're considering chocolate-covered frozen bananas, but aren't sure if they'll sell.

Many of the less-exotic foods have already been claimed by other clubs (soda, donuts, burritos, burgers, caramel apples, apple cider, garlic/foccacia bread, fried chicken, fish balls, smoothies, pizza, sushi, tapioca). We are also not allowed to sell food cooked by ourselves.

What other food items are likely to sell well? By the way, I live in northern California, so the weather is always pretty mild. Thanks for any and all suggestions!
----------

what about ice cream... or ice cream floats... when I was in school.. .we raises alot of money since the day was so hot.  (+ info)

What food service occupations are there where jewelry of any kind is considered a safety issue?


I was just reading that in a different section. And am curious because I have worked in several kitchens in the past where all the engaged/married women wore wedding rings. And I have never heard of them being a safety risk. Even at the food handler's safety classes that the health dept has, they don't mention that being a risk of any kind, which they would be required to do so if it was.

The only time I have ever heard of anything related being a safety issue where food is concerned is when I worked at a summer camp one year. There was one boy who felt prejudiced because he was not allowed to wear nail polish while the girls in the kitchen were. He was told the reason he wasn't allowed to was because it might chip off into the food, even though there would have been the same risk from the girls but none were given any warnings about it, and plastic gloves were worn at all times.
By safety issue, I meant that you could injure yourself on the job by wearing it. For example, a person using heavy machinery could get it caught and lose their finger or their entire arm. My question is what in the food industry is the equivalent of that? Since I noticed many people in another post saying that food service was equally dangerous if you wear a ring on the job, but never mentioned why.
----------

I used to work at KFC when I was a teenager and if only I could find the handbook because I remember reading in there that we're not supposed to wear jewelry. Of course, it's one of those dumb rules that no one really follows. Kinda like those dumb laws that were made a long time ago. I think part of the reason why is because jewelry can spread germs and when you're preparing food, it could be possible to spread germs from your rings to the food, but that's a long shot. And I guess there's also the possibility that your jewelry could accidently come off into the food but that's a longshot too. It's just one of those dumb rules.

And since you mention wearing gloves....I've noticed that in places like McDonalds and Burger King, the people aren't wearing gloves when they're in the kitchen putting together burgers. It really bothers me too.
