I just can't bring myself to eat liver. I haven't tried liver capsules yet, but maybe this is the answer:

From the book, The Wahls Protocol by Terry Wahls, M.D.

Page 386:
Organ meat capsules
Dr. Ron's Ultra-Pure

If you can't get used to eating organ meat, you could consider capsules of dried organ meat. He also has a number of vitamin and other supplements.

"I just can't bring myself to eat liver"

This is understandable. But there are a couple of easy/healthy alternatives.

First, there is a ground meat product I order from the company I order my grass fed meats from. It is a mix of ground meat and ground organ meats. It is the texture of ground beef and has a nice flavor, especially when combined with shredded cheese (made from milk from grass fed cows, of course!). From their website: "Ingredients: 40% lean beef trimmings, 20% Beef Heart, 20% Beef Liver, 10% Beef Spleen, and 10% Beef Kidney. U.S. raised grass-fed beef."

Another alternative is to cook with cast iron cookware, which is not only a pleasure to cook with but offers better flavor, more even cooking and potential health benefits from the iron content.

I used to do liver pate, BUT beef liver tastes horrible. Chicken is nice and mild.

Right now am on iron pills, which seems working, all praise to God. Ferritin has raised from 7 up to 30. Head is definitely more clear, but still having quite many health issues.

I am thinking if hypovolemic shock 5 months prior to major attack could be the main trigger... Had really bad miscarriage, very heavy bleeding.

hi :) uh oh, that magnesium number was quite low! good that you're working on it. even just using sea salt rather than table salt for seasoning will make a small contribution.
for ca:mg intake ratio (dietary + supplemental) i would suggest you try for 1:1.
personally haven't tried any calcium pills lately; for ages now i have been off them. i had been noticing pain in my back, which i took to be kidney pain, when i did take supplemental calcium.

glad to hear iron status is on the up and up. hopefully you are on top of combining vit C foods with iron foods to improve absorption/retention. recall: bell peppers and broccoli kick oranges' butt when it comes to vit C http://www.whfoods.com/genpage.php?tnam ... #foodchart

i note we already had the shellfish conversation so if moving on to liver, i confess i am not an outright fan but am quite happy to eat something with an organ meat ingedient, such as steak and kidney pie (as long as the kidney bits are cut small). kidney is roughly equal to liver in terms of iron content.
liver http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/bee ... cts/3470/2
kidney http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/bee ... cts/3467/2

also, at the farm where i go for eggs, meat, poultry etc they make a variety of sausages, one of which is called 'hunter's' - this one uses the organ meats as an ingredient. they are tasty and chock full of livery goodness without sharing plain old liver's icky texture. (right now, however, i am working my way through a 4-pack of 'toulouse' which has red wine and bacon in it. you win some you lose some ;) i made 5-veg cream of spinach soup too so still polishing my halo for that one)

i second elliot's thought re cast iron cookware. an absolute standard in my kitchen; i prepare food in it more often than not.
take control of your own health
pursue optimal self care at least as actively as a diagnosis
ask for referrals to preventive health care specialists eg dietitians
don't let suboptimal self care muddy any underlying diagnostic picture!

Yes, using Himalayan and black salt only in our diet.
OK, I'll try to use cast iron pan more often.

Am gonna look for good Ca supplements. Also planning to add Chia seeds to my diet.

Thank you again :>)
