Just wanted to drop this tidbit I love flax seed for. Sprinkling it in oatmeal, mashed potatoes, batter for frying, pancakes, etc. has helped my toddler’s eczema. Although it isn’t completely gone, her skin has been less severely dry and itchy. She thinks now there is a lot of “dirt” in her food, but I tell her its “sugar”! ehahea! My coworkers also say it is a must for hot flashes. One coworker forgot her pack of flax seed on a weekend vacation trip an she said it was absolutely unbearable. I got my pack at Target near the vitamins, but I’ve also found it in health food stores and the organic section of some local grocery stores.
