Ayurveda/Cod liver oil, food combining


Dear Dr. Dehal,

I understand that fish is not to be combined with dairy products, nor with other kinds of meat, nor with eggs. (The combination with dariy products is said to be particularly bad).

I take fish oil capsules every day (cod liver oil). Is it all right to take these with dairy, with chicken, or with eggs?

Thank you in advance for your help and with wintry greetings from France!


Dear Aaron.
Cod liver oil can be taken with said combination  as this is not in the raw form and after samskar (special process of preparation) it's properties changes and so it can be taken. But even though I prefer not to take this with milk to be on safe side.
