I'm Still Alive!

Hello my dears!

I know I said last time that it would be a week or two before the new site was up and running. Well, as you can see, two weeks have come and gone, and then a few more weeks have come and gone.

My apologies for the delay. The transition is basically done, but there are some problems with formatting right now. Basically, for some reason, the spacing in many of the posts has not transferred properly and they look like giant walls of text, with no spaces between paragraphs and sections. Oy! They’re readable, but it’s not pleasant. Once I get that figured out, I’ll make the switch and get back to posting more often. (Yay!) I have so many (so many!) posts bouncing around in my head. It’ll be on me to actually write them, but I have a couple already set to go so I won’t have to keep you waiting even longer.

I guess I’ve been waiting until I have more content for the site. Not just blog posts, but actual content. A low carb & ketogenic FAQ, troubleshooting guide, food lists, etc. All of those and more are in the works, as are the posts I gave previews of last time. What this boils down to is my own laziness. There is truly no other reason this is taking so long, except I was waiting for things to be done for which I, myself, am the only thing standing in the way. Working from home is a great idea if you are a self-starter and are motivated and disciplined. I am none of these three things, so joke’s on me. (The even bigger joke was on me when I thought I could learn to be disciplined and a self-starter by joining the military, but it turns out no one—not even drill instructors—can force you to be something you’re not.)

Okay, enough wallowing in the swamp of self-pity!

TL;DR: New site coming soon-ish. I need to work out the spacing problems and play around with the fonts and colors until I find a look I’m happy with. Sorry to keep you waiting! In the meantime, you can always find me on Twitter, where I post irreverent thoughts of my own as well as links to nutrition & health things that might be of interest to you.

P.S. What I’m reading now: The Salt Fix, by Dr. James DiNicolantonio, with whom I collaborated on my very first peer-reviewed journal article, Added sugars drive nutrient and energy deficit in obesity: a new paradigm. (Yes, I have an article on PubMed! How cool is that?!) The “experts” were wrong about cholesterol, saturated fat, and red meat. Could they be wrong about salt/sodium, too? Signs point to yesRead James’s book to find out why. A physician I follow on Twitter said it’s like “a salty version of The Big Fat Surprise,” which I reviewed here.) I agree!

  1. Thanks for the tip about "The Salt Fix"; I just started reading it. I actually wanted to order your book, but they don't ship it here- (I'll wait until I visit the States; just a few weeks now). Looking forward to your new articles on the blog, whenever they appear.

  2. For those people whose relative are suffering from Alzheimer’s Disease and maybe reading this, I find it hard that people are still ignorant of herbal medicine when it comes to treating Alzheimer’s Disease.
    I have been through many phases over the last couple of years since my father's diagnosis, he was 53 years old and had Early Onset Alzheimer’s Disease and his diagnosis changed my life in many ways, I spend most of the time in denial and I keep thinking the tests were wrong. But deep down I knew they were correct. Though sharing his story is very difficult. He was always very successful in being able to accomplish anything he set his mind on doing. Alzheimer’s is a bitch of a disease. It began by robbing his recent memory, but it didn't stop there. It continues to steal, taking the most recent memories until it has pilfered all but the oldest memories, he experienced a decline in his ability to think, remember and make decisions. I feel a need to express my thoughts and feelings about how it affected his day to day living and how its deteriorated since despite the help of some wonderful medics and medicine.
    I remind myself how lucky to come across Charanjit rychtova's herbal medicine which is able to control this disease without any side effect, I felt a moment of relief hoping that he is free from this ailment, and nothing compares to the healing power of nature. Now I believe almost every health problem can be addressed in one natural way or another. The only thing I wanted was for him to feel better. I’m proud to say my Dad is Alzheimer’s free. You can also contact him for advice and more info. charantova@gmail.com

  3. This is a great write up, I was also a victim, having Alzheimer's disease for many years. My journey and diagnosis with Alzheimer's disease began when I was 58 years old. My medical condition was heart broken. The first thing I did was get myself informed. I was subjected to different medications including Donepezil, galantamine, by my doctors for treatment without the assurance of having a positive improvement. Despite my visit to several doctors my health wasn't getting better. Also I keep thinking there has to be another alternative to address this, using herbal remedy, this information reinforced my original gut feelings that I should not give up. I decided to look for another option to help my condition. I’ve made many lifelong friends when I was looking for a natural cure for my ailment. To say it gets better is an understatement. I find hope in the darkest of days when I saw a testimony of people talking about Dr. Charanjit's herbal product. I started having series of thoughts, thereafter I ordered his product and started using it, to give the Alzheimer's disease an aggressive approach, the symptoms progressively got better.
    Luckily, everything seemed to be okay after a few weeks of starting the herbs, this was a pleasant surprise. I promised myself that I would stay strong. You sit living in fear of the reality what you may face, never really knowing what will happen until it does. I am indebted and decided to always share my experience.

    Yes. One of the most important things we need to learn, accept and internalize is that we are largely what our genetics tells us we are. With some ability (i.e. free will, epigenetics, who-knows-what-else) to influence that at the margins. If society were to accept that knowledge we could be freed from so much anxiety, conflict, envy, etc.

    Ah well, maybe some day!
