Preaching with humour - with humour people are more apt to remember and because of that perhaps slowly start to believe.
Where have I said I can control anyone's thinking? Honestly, stop attributing to me things I have not said.

Fair enough. But you know the adage about honey and vinegar.

The last three years have been especially difficult for me and I'm not naturally a jokester. But I will try.

Nowhere did I suggest others toss their multivitamins, I have tossed mine. I do think I should have said bone broth settles my upset stomach. As for all the other vitamins mixed up in a multivitamin, most are sub-optimal for excellent or even better than just good health. So I choose to take my supplements at optimal doses and not as supplements to my Supplement.

You really don't want me to go into vitamins A, D3, E, K2-MK7 and minerals Sodium, Magnesium, Chloride etc. that are needed just for bone health, let alone all the rest of the processes they are needed for. (and really don't want me to spout off about Coconut Oil - it's a miracle!) Between Dad and I, Mom says we sound like a National Enquirer headline with our statements.

I can tell you, that health-wise, I feel better than I have in years and have gone off a few medications for my diabetes and blood pressure by taking the supplements and my diet changes. I am in no way trying to change anyone, I'm reporting my experiences and if anyone is interested I can give you the book titles I've been reading in a PM. I don't find a need to prove myself to the Internet.

Nope, it's not a cure-all, you still have to eat right. There is no magic pill or substance that will fix all our ills.

I am aware of and am sorry that you go through the health challenges you have. Here's a joke to help:

A Nurse goes to write a check at the grocery store, she pulls a thermometer from behind her ear and remarks, "Hey some a**hole has my pen!"

I love you and you know it...so there!

Ha, my doctors have already gone into that for me One laughed at me when I said I wanted to go sky-diving with our exchange student in 2007, when I was in the hospital with a protein level of about 2 and my vitamin D was undetectable.

When the dog bites, when the bee stings, when I'm feeling sad...

You guys have odd feelings about favorite things.
