1. Don't buy the full amount of powder that you *think* you will need all at once. I followed the directions on the Integrative Therapeutics website and ordered a whopping TEN pouches. Non-returnable of course. I was committed! I was going to STICK. It. OUT!. Turns out I'm downing way less than...

Downing 1 tsp oil (alternating MCT & olive oil) per scoop of powder. Much better blood sugar regulation. We (person in my household who knows how to convert grams to calories and whatnot) sat down & figured out I can go up to 2 tsp oil/scoop to get the fat to something like 40% of total...

LDN, LDN, how I love thee, LDN. Started 1.5 mg 3 days ago. Results so far: --Better sleep! It really cut down the "wake every 90 minutes" business which was getting OLD. --Mild illness. Fatigue, need to rest, lack of concentration. This after a period of (relatively) high functionality...

I kept thinking- is this insane? (yes) But decided that if I only had 6 weeks/months etc to live I would STILL want to see the eclipse if it was at all possible. I've been slowly getting better so decided to risk it. Of course we didn't make lodging reservations 3 years ago. Backcountry...

So, last week was my husband's birthday. We haven't been out to eat since I got sick in February. Against my better judgment I made reservations at his favorite (local family owned Italian) restaurant. Early at least.... 5:30 pm...- that should help, right? We were almost the only people in...
