    Well, there are a few researchers that say that even though borage has a higher amount of GLA per pill, that evening primrose oil is preferred, because there are other factors in borage oil that may cause problems for different patient populations -- something to do with 'very long chain fatty acids' -- I think. Let me see if I can find the thread or threads....

    Here's one from almost a year ago, where we talked about it:

    Patricia Kane is one of the leading researchers in this area...you will see from my second or third post that some of her work kind of ties in with Rich Van K's methylation protocol.

    Also...here's a page (with extreeeeemely tiny print!) that talks about how borage oil may lead to seizures in some patients. ???

    hope that helps?

    Hi Carrigon,

    It could be your thyroid meds making you worse. A few years back the main thyroid medication in New Zealand was changed, and lots of people got very sick. Here's a link about it.

    Yes, I'm starting to think I have that, too. I also can't have anything that now says "whole grain" with pasta. It's like massive stomach cramps if I do that. I can't have wheat bread, too.
