+1 I forgot about that technique.

Re: Self Health Poll

I myself mostly stay away from taking drugs or supplements. Having said that, I WILL take them when necessary, but I also don't think it's worth rushing to Walgreen's to dope up on dayquil whenever I get the sniffles. I guesstimate I take ~90% fewer pills than does the average joe. I'm combining that with bettering my diet - probably a bigger health help than anything that comes from the ******** - and doing so by cooking at home means a side bonus of $$ saved vs. eating out.

EDIT - why is the word p h a r m a c y bleeped out up there?

your liver is connected to the brain how? thru the spinal cord and nerves. you got a bone pressing on that area of spinal cord...well you lose function, simple as that. the thing is, a very small amount of nerves are for "feel" so you are unaware of of most pinched nerves. if your DC did not explain this, i'd find another one.

best wishes for a full recovery. and great recognition for prayer on your part...i'll pray for you as well.
Ahh, my liver problems are a non-alcoholic fatty liver, which basically means fat cells infiltrated my liver. I have a family history of the same types of liver problems. I just have to treat it and maintain a healthy diet. After that, I can't abuse it as much as most people can, which is fine, since like I said, I have never been a heavy drinker. Honestly, the time I spent with a bad gallbladder probably lead to this, since bile is stored and released by the gallbladder, and bile is what is used for processing digested fats. Since my body could not process fat correctly, it did a lot of odd things. With my family history, my liver is just more sensitive to the things that can cause damage to a liver in a normal person is all. No big deal, guess I will just HAVE to stay healthy and live a long happy life... I'm really broken up about the whole thing.

Don't get me wrong, I do enjoy visits with the DC. I see them every now and then, even if it isn't for soreness and stiffness, since adjustments are good for my posture and for my general health. I like being in good condition, because I have more energy, I can do more, and I can work harder. Regular medical checkups are key to good health in my opinion. I just said I don't see the DC for internal medicine because I think it is a far better idea to see an internal medicine doctor so you know exactly what is wrong. I want a treatment to fit the problem, and while a DC's treatment may help with certain problems, it would be like fixing your car without figuring out what is wrong with it first. You could get lucky, or you could end up wasting your time. In this case, I would have wasted time, lots of vitamin E and a change in my diet for a few months before I can go back to a more normal diet and I should be good to go.

Nah, technology inside the kitchen scares me, so I don't use anything except the way the manufacturer specifically instructs.

Of course, if you think that is bad, you should see me when I am doing laundry. I know how to do it, I am good at doing it, but I call my friends and ask them if they will do it for me. I fix their cars, it is totally fair to ask them to do my laundry sometimes.

Must have been a lot of farm assy spam. It could probably be removed.

Most bread machines have a setting specifically for letting the machine do the mixing/kneading/etc so you can slap it in a pan and throw it in the oven...no need to worry that you're doing something outside the instructions.

Re: Self Health Poll

To clarify, the bulk making of dough I suggested was for if you still didn't want to use a bread machine. There is some time saving in mixing the ingredients of multiple loafs all at once, but more importantly it lets you make the dough up when you have the time to do so.

Another way to see it, is as making your own take and bake loafs to cook when time is in less supply.

An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of drugs that legalized drug pushers (doctors) will be prescribing to you.

The UK government recommends 7 portions of fruit and/or veg a day. I do have that most days, its really not as difficult as people make out. Glass of fruit juice with my breakfast, 3 peices of fruit, usualy an apple, bannana and a pear with my lunch, then 2 portions of veg with my dinner, easy and cheap too.

I think its appaling how in the US you pay taxes on food, drink, alcahol and cigarettes and yet there is no free healthcare? Whats all that about?
