Did you write that poem Badgergirl? It's lovely!
Just popping in to thank you again for the martial arts suggestion. I went to Muay Thai kickboxing on Friday and loved it!!! Defintely think you were on to something there, and I appreciate the insight!

"I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.
In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."
