The calender says I'll be sixty six this month. I wandered into Peat's work in the late nineties. I tended to keep pet health cults as part of my reading. I was intrigued by Dr. Buteyko's ideas and Dr. Tomatis' theories of listening. Anyway, I would always go to a non commercial buteyko site (http://www.members.westnet.com.au/pkolb/buteyko.htm) and there buried in the other information was an link to a paper by Ray Peat on Carbon Dioxide. I lurked on their message board for several years practicing buteyko by myself. I read my way through the articles on Ray's website and began shifting my diet around his ideas. Since he answered questions I generally asked for other people. Finally I tried various thyroid products because my weight had continued to climb despite lots of running around. Then Dr. Peat was kind enough to encourage me to continue and I eventually took enough to make it work. This last year a long standing problem came to a head. My left knee had stopped bending. I had assumed it was damage from a lifetime of work and playing tennis. Falling off loading docks and ladders etc. However after finally having an MRI the problem is arthritis. So for the last few months I have been doing dry co2 baths and progesterone dhea creams to try and reverse my condition. So thanks to you all for sharing your struggles with life's challenges. So I'm going upstairs to have my super mocha. Gelatin sugar salt milk and espresso. Oh I'm writing this beneath a heat lamp.
