Super, super helpful, you guys–thanks so much. Strangely enough, the heartburn has stopped since I submitted the question and I’ve stopped all supplements but the digestive enzymes. I’m definitely going to check in with my awesome paleo-friendly practitioner about the ox bile / absorption question (I’m newly seeing her and we haven’t talked about that yet). Another thing I’m thinking is that I really just need to increase the nutrient-dense foods in my diet–so I just bought 3.5 lbs of pastured chicken livers and made some of Stacey’s mousse.

Also, I second the comment above. Speaking as someone who has placed a pre-order for your cookbook, Sarah, although I am eagerly awaiting it, I hope to receive the book whenever you are ready to deliver it in a manner that protects your health, and not a moment sooner. I can’t imagine how any of your readers/listeners could feel differently.

Thank you to both of you for all you do.
