Re: Looking into the future - Money and care

When my father's Alzheimer's was progressing, and we knew it wouldn't be all that long before he'd need full-time help at home, and then eventually need to be in a nursing home, we were very lucky to discover that an ex-patient of my [more]

Re: Salts

These days if energy flags in mid-afternoon, instead of caffeine or sugar, I have a glass of water with sea salt, raw cider vinegar, and a couple drops of liquid stevia.

Re: Salts

Is there some reason that you use the Himalayan salt as opposed to "regular" salt?

I stopped taking calcium and Vitamin D. I want to get all of it through diet.

What a good report. And what an encouraging report! You accomplished this by changing the way you eat and changing the way you exercise, and modifying your supplements a tad, and that makes ALL of you healthier! Plus you avoid the negatives from the [more]

Re: Salts

Himalayan is the only nonstandard salt we've tried too. My husband DETESTS it! For him, it has a far more intense salt taste than regular salt. He hates saltiness, so when I use this salt I have to use it with profound stinginess. [more]

Re: Video Cam vs Colonoscopy

A while ago they were promoting small video cameras in a capsule that you swallowed. They then recorded video all the way through.

All this colonoscopy talk made me realize that I need to just DO it. So first I called the place where my first one had been done to find out when it had actually been. I was floored. In just 3 days, it [more]

Re: Format For Printing

"Format for Printing" has been available since around 2004, iirc.
