Regarding health stuff. Please disregard any of this if its outside your worldview, simply my shotgun approach I share with everyone who mentions health. Wanted to make sure you were aware of doctoryourself.com, a great source for diy megavitamin therapy including high doses of vitamin c; fasting with Dr Jason Fung, a Canadian kidney specialist curing people's insulin resistance with intermittent and continuous fasting; Earthing.com, source for electromagnetic grounding info, anti-inflamatory practice; and ketogenic diet, specifically the book Primal Body Primal Mind, all about the importance of dietary fat from animals and the risks associated with sugar. Also Psych-K, brain hemisphere synchronization, similar to the effect of prayer or meditation. I mention these whenever anyone brings up health stuff. I totally get it if any of that might be outside of your worldview, but if any of that happens to be useful I wanted to share, as health is my other main interest.
Thank you again for your message.
Dear Forrest Thank you for your health resources. My husband's illness is rather rare. Some how the nerve to his diaphragm has been severed. The diaphragm is paralyzed up, so his right lung can't inflate. Therefore, it fills with gunk, and because of years of hacking the gunk up, the opening of the lung to the trachea is collapsing. We went to Boston to see the Worlds best Thoracic surgeons, who have invented a stent that is inserted into the trachea to hold it open. Unfortunately, when they tried to insert the stent, it could not reach far enough into his lung opening to reach where his is collapsing. Adding to the fact that his mother was a chain smoker, his lungs are damaged beyond repair. We do grow a lot of our own food, and cook from scratch, eating lots of veggies, etc. But this is more of a physical damage, then just healthy lifestyle living.
