I'm sorry that you are having so much stress over this. Really. No, I'm not being sarcastic. I'm sincere.
I don't know what's going on with the altering of messages. That's a problem that I don't want to deal with; and hope it doesn't happen to me. I would contact him directly and work it out; and I would work it out. But that's my way. If I should fail, I would contact the Webmaster
and every moderator that I know. I'm real sure that won't happen to me. I think we have a good working relationship now.
I've been working on my health symptoms since 1968. They started well before that. I've been several routes, from herbs to parapsychology to allopathic. Nothing has worked. No one seems to be able to diagnose me. For my constipation, the allopathic doctors say, "Drink more water. Eat more fiber. Exercise." I say poo-poo. I've tried all the diets. Nearly all the diets (not fruitarian). For my sinuses, they pretty much say the same thing; but they also convinced me to have surgery for deviated septum. I was stupid then. Well, more stupid. At least the naturopathic world tries harder. My recent ND says fungus.
So, I've chosen the naturopathic world - all the way.
What I'm getting at is that I have tried so many things. Herbs were not even promising. I tried various combination and quantity. Now think of the law of combination and permutation. Even after 40 years, I would think I would find the right combination. That law is defeating me; far too many combinations. So, there's Charlie. He has experience and technical knowledge of the herbs. He is my latest weapon.
It does not bother me that he does not divulge his ingredients or quantity of ingredients. As you say, the ingredient of at least one formula is posted. That does not help, if it does not match all of my symptoms. Hence the consultation and monitoring. Through consultation, I will let him know if I react to certain herbs; because, I have experience too. I need the experience of his "tweaked" formulae. The cost of the consultation is reasonable to me.
I've tried herbs and things that should have killed me. Fortunately I'm somewhat cautious and try not to overdo it. Sometimes I'm so miserable that I am willing to take more risks. I feel like I did with MMS
and mega-iodine; and certain substances of the 60s and 70s. Here I am. Still fighting.
Try to get a grip. Tell him your concern; not just your problem but why you are concerned. It could help us all. You have his email.
