Re: Food cravings

I can't see too much wrong with what she is eating. It sounds as if her body is telling her something, maybe it is the salt, maybe vit C, lots of that in there. If she is enjoying those foods, and not gorging on them, then it should be OK for her.

Re: Food cravings

I agree with Seraph about the cravings. It sounds like her body is telling her what she needs.

Btw, out of idle curiosity, has your friend ever been tested for any tickborne illnesses, like Lyme? How about Celiac (sensitivity to gluten)? I'm only asking because of her IBS, reflux, CFS, arthritis, and various psychological issues. And now the heart. Both problems have symptoms like this. It's worth mentioning.
