Every pair of apparent opposite or contradictory symptoms shares a common ground and tends to revolve around a common theme. For example, “letting go” is the central point in the case of both constipation and diarrhea. Underlying both low and high blood pressure is an avoidance of conflict. Just as joy can express itself in tears or laughter, or as fear can lead to either paralysis or flight, every theme is capable of expressing itself in apparently contradictory symptomatic forms.  More

He says the egg yolks are a more complete protein that contain healthy fats and are easier to digest than other proteins, and the psyllium husk—a form of soluble fiber made from the husks of seeds from a type of plantain—helps bind the crust. Makes 4 10-inch pizzas More
