I am very careful usually about buying foods that don't have chemical junk added to them as preservative or color or flavor. All natural & mostly organic. Milk right out of the cow from my neighbors dairy & eggs right from the farm (until I can get my own chickens). I am the same careful with foods for my pets. So far it is working well.

After getting off the pain medication patches years ago, I never go to the MD & when I did I had a bad reaction to the meds. Not an incentive to go to an MD for medical stuff. I want to treat the problem not the symptoms.

Oh, hey, my favorite remedy! Let me know how the book is. If it’s good I’ll get one for here. Lots of low income seniors here would be interested

Never have that problem....I am usually too busy & have to cut things back so I have time for me & my critters & my farm since I still do most of the work around here myself. Some evenings I am so exhausted all I do is crash

The White House is threatening the patents of high-priced drugs developed with taxpayer dollars

Good for them. It seems like the more important or serious a disease is, the more a company charges for it. Seems to me like there's something wrong with this picture.

If tax payer money goes into the research then the government should be able to state the price limits. The newest form of price gouging is for the drug companies to limit how much they make of old generic s that have been around for decades creating an artificial shortage. These are generics for cancer and other life threatening illnesses and drugs needed for surgery so to force a higher price. This too is unconscionable and needs to be addressed with prison for the ceos who make those decisions.

There are now shortages for some opiates because of all the complaints. Not as many companies are making them. Sigh. It's scary what drug companies do.

I think the multitude and high dose of psych drugs I was on in the past affected my memory along with bipolar episodes

As if it would not be obvious to an obese person without checking the BMI?

Most of the time, no, they could not.

Do you have a (very) warm water pool with a shallow area where you live? I have read on the website of the Arthritis foundation that walking in water is the safest form of exercise for this condition. There is such a pool within a 30 minute drive from me and I sometimes go. I do not have arthritis (not yet, as we will all be there), but I simply love walking in water. And I usually walk sideways and backwards, not forwards, and this way I exercise muscles that I cannot exercise on land.

Seriously I don't see much difference in the care I get....I went with HUMANA & get $100/ month back on the cost on having medicare....the $174 charge out of my SS is only $74. However one big provider around here quit allowing Humana. I seriously don't go to MD's medicare would cover no matter what because they don't cover natural treatments but if something big were to hit me at least I have coverage. Medicare charges deductibles, this coverage doesn't except on hospital. Lol....I don't like anything govt has its hands in because it becomes nothing but a bureaucratic mess
