Meds are not all evil. I have been onthem n moderation just like my carb
intake, for now over 16years. If you can manage without meds that's fine,
but many can't. You throw around terms like carbs are poison, hating
meds, but accepting traditional medicine(herbs, etc.) How do you feel

lost a brother before I was even born to a strep infectin in january of
