Can anyone tell me if you have to eat dandelion flowers with anything else to get the lecitin value from them? I was looking it up and find references to having to drink milk too? I don't drink milk or eat soy(as much as that is possible to avoid) but want to help my liver with lecitin. thanks
I just wanted to know can you add it to foods such as soup or take it straight up?

Concerning Lecithin for Detox: I understand to take granulated lecithin for 5 of 7 days to detox the body from a lifetime of heavy metals, etc. Should this be taken regularly, forever, or just every so often for detox?
Please add a new topic for lecithin. I remember reading some comment from Ted where he mentioned lecithin pushing instead of oil pulling. Cannot find it anywhere. Do we use the lecithin same way as sesame oil or do we just ingest it? Thank you.
I got the lecithin granules that Ted recommends. How do I ingest them? I put some in my morning oatmeal and they cook along with it (melt?). But for the teaspoonsful later in the day? I put some in juice, but had to swallow the grains. I don't eat yogurt. Put some in applesauce and yuck! I don't want to waste it, but maybe warm tea or milk? Don't usually drink milk-it triggers my ibs. The thought of it in tea is repulsive, but I'll do what I must.
Does anyone have a name brand of lecithin that's not GMO...? Thanks much
I know how important it is. My last purchase turned up as liquid capsules. Is this OK? Or does it have to be the granules.
i would like to add lecithin to my diet but am concerned after reading soy can cause problems with hormones and i am menopausal. could you please ask Ted?

Lecithin if you have breast cancer.
Hi. I am concerned about using Lecithin since I have breast cancer. I have been told to stay away from any soy products. Any information is appreciated.

Would liquid lecithin be just as good as the granulated? Thank you.
EC: We've been meaning to ask Ted exactly that! Thanks for the reminder.

I tried Lecithin. A Bechtel engineer who worked at a laboratory when he was younger told me that they grew the herpes virus. They used Lecithin to control and kill the herpes virus. He saw the herpes breakout on my face one day at work. He told me to take 2500 mg each day for a month. I asked him why he hasn't come forward with this information. He said that the FDA was too powerful to fight.
It worked for me. I haven't had a breakout in 20 years.
As I understand it, hospitals use Lecithin based baby formulas on new born babies born to women with genital herpes.

You can add lecithin to your cooking by replacing some of the fat/oil in the recipe with it. I use it in muffins that way with good results. I've also seen health recipes where you dissolve it in water and use that instead of oil. So if the recipe requires you to "fry an onion", use the 2tblspns of both lecithin and water instead. Just start off with the water and lecithin in the pan then when hot start cooking. It is good.
I've been taking lecithin now 2x a day with every meal. I bought the gel caps at Whole Foods (their generic brand). The first thing I noticed was that my memory improved dramatically. I was frustrated the day before I started the lecithin that I couldn't for the life of me remember the name of one of my childhood friends! The next day, a few hours after taking lecithin, the full name of my childhood friend popped into my head along with the name of her dog (Chadsie). Not sure yet about the pulling oil effect that Ted speaks about, but will report back in a month or two. Wanted to report my initial findings...

A word of caution about Soy Lecithin granules. I had a severe allergic reaction causing hives around my neck, severe itching and a huge red stripe around 2-3 inches in diameter from my chin to the base of my neck. Luckily, I read on Earth Clinic to blot the rash with borax and hydrogen peroxide. Then I took a bath with a couple of scoops of coconut oil in the water. Instant relief! I also had switched breads to a 12-grain variety that started off the allergy attack. I must have had a huge buildup of lecithin in my body and a soy allergy too.
When I give my mom a teaspoon of lecithin she feels very giddy afterwards. Like a mild mania. I gave it to her on a different occasion and same result. What's this mean? Why is this happening? Thanks.
