A tale of two oils

When I first started eating a raw food diet it was all about olive oil. Everything I made from dressing to massaged kale had olive oil in it. I love it and felt great.

Over a period of time, as I continued the detox process, I started noticing that on days that I used olive oil I would end up having more mucus in my eyes/nose.

Then a good friend, Mr. Nature Love actually, recommended flax oil. He said it was a lot easier to for the digestive system to process and it could often be found in a fresher state than olive oil, (fresh pressed Barlean's organic flax oil).

I made the switch over 3.5 years ago and haven't used olive oil since.

Until last week that is....

Not only did I have a small headache, but I definitely felt much heavier than normal.

This maybe just my limited experience, so I'm going to open this one to the community in this post's comment section:

  • What oils, if any, do you use?
  • Have you had any amazingly positive or negative experiences with certain oils?

Would love to see if I'm onto something here.
