    Your Ma was a wise women and listened and acted on her spirit and I too credit it for my inflection point. To me spiritual is nothing more than a dimension outside the limitations of the physical. When first sick I followed the "conventional wisdom" and listened to my doctor, for a time. Then my spirit arose and said, this is not right.
    I had read an old book by Louis Bromfield in which he said the soil (read topsoil ) had been depleted of many of the trace mineral necessary for metabolic functions (pathways) and thus many maladies were a result of poor farming practices. Then later coming across Joel Wallach's work drove it home, that coupled with my work in the research academia /industry, on many levels. Worked for a gifted endocrinology professor and managed his research facility.

    A tooo long story short, I began to utilize my training and experience on my own predicament and the results were eye opening. The wisdom was already known (Joseph Krafts work ) but was suppressed and could have saved me ( and many others ) precious time.

    The revolution is underway and in the light now (Ivor Cummins work The Fat Emperor and many other Paleo pioneers )

    Time is of the essence ( the physical body is subject to time and space )

    Thank you, my friend !!:) Listen and Act on your wisdom and spirit ;) Feel my prayers

    It's bad that I'm picturing Gevo as a Richard Simmons type inspirational motivator :D

    That is beyond awesome, my friend :):thumbsup::thumbsup: No meds necessary...you got this with whole live food ...the best medicine ;) knowledge, the right tests, insulin, inflammation markers, no seed oils (so called vegetable oils) and movement. Vitamin/mineral supplementation if necessary. Magnesium deficiency. That's a good start !

    @Gevonovich Gev my friend, Kevin ain't the only one. My attention has been focused on the effect carbs have on our insulin output. You are a good egg brother. And a fellow philosopher. And thank you Kevin for... well ... for everything you do paisano. :D

    I dodged a bullet scheduling that wellness prevention visit. They still have my old doctor on my web chart, and she, being gone, is not scheduling appointments. Mwa ha ha.

    They spell it "wellness/prevention", but I think it's funnier without the "/". And medical science is all about keeping me amused.

    And by the way, my resonator cone is in place.

    A few years ago my wonderful neighbor, Jerry (really a great guy & fellow knife nut) gave this special knife to me in trade, with his health now failing, it means the world to me. For those so inclined, could you please include him in your prayers. Thanks.

    On another note, soon I should know just how badly I've wasted how much time. Just have to install the frets and strings. Actually, I'm guardedly optimistic.
    Oh, and drill the tiny holes for the tiny screws to hold on the tuners.
