I can't understand denying people the right to die, either.

Nope, that's what hospice is for. My great aunt was anemic. She was tired of going into the hospital for blood transfusions. She had the best treatments for as long as she wanted them. When she decided that she didn't want to go into the hospital for another painful procedure, knowing that she'd just have to go back in a week, we called hospice.

Hospice was great. She was a lot of work to care for, and to alleviate the stress on the family Hospice had someone in the house 24 hours/day. We could focus on being with her, and supporting her, while someone else was helping her get up and go to the bathroom, bathe, etc. Hospice also supplied us with a drug kit for her final hours with all sorts of stuff in it. Luckily, all she needed or wanted was the morphine - but we were prepared for just about anything with that kit. Hospice made it possible for her to pass peacefully at home with the family, without being a burden on the family.

I DO drink, smoke, and eat twinkies. I will continue to do so until I die.

But drugs and conventional treatments aren't all bad, while all natural and home remedies aren't effective or rational.

There's a middle ground in there somewhere, and that's what I search for.

Re: Self Health Poll

I raise almost all of my own food grown on organic, highly mineralized soils. Since getting away from the grocery store diet I've lost 20 lbs without even trying, energy level went up, stopped getting sleepy in the afternoon, stopped getting winter colds and flus, allergies have gone way down, and in general feel much better and healthier. My wife used to have to take Claritin during the oak and grass pollen seasons, but doesn't anymore. Last year, when at my wife's insistance I had my first physical in 18 years, I had perfect health and the doctor said I has the blood pressure of a 18 year old even though I'm in my mid 50's. I don't take any drugs, either perscription or otherwise.

Re: Self Health Poll

it's difficult to convince "lifers" that are addicted to manipulated food and drugs of this truth. and many doctors and gov't agencies are in on the "game"--some willingly, while others are simply following the broken protocol.

in typical form, this view is attacked both here and around the nation/globe. i wish people would just try it for themselves, like you have.

thanks for the props! once again your wisdom has amazed me--well beyond the fuel economy realm!

Re: Self Health Poll

i've been having some hip flexor issues in recent months and wanted to touch on this subject some more. it just so happens that my water consumption has decreased w/ lower temps and humidity being winter time. the past few days ive increased my consumption again which is yielding relief. any who, i ran across an article concerning alternative medicine and the treatment/effectiveness. check it out...http://homeopathic-treatment.com/

Re: Self Health Poll

I increase my water consumption during winter to help prevent coming down with a cold. Not only does the hydration help my body operate well, but I'm pretty sure the constant throat irrigation helps wash away germs that are attacking there.

I always drink a lot of water. I drink more in the summer though. No a/c at work, and I rarely have the a/c on at home.

Re: Self Health Poll

None of you guys can be right. The news keeps telling me that we all have at least one foot in the grave from our bad health and need the government to provide our healthcare, "rightaway" to quote our president.
