I’ve been reading your site for a few years and mises.org for somewhat longer. Articles I’ve read have converted me on many issues. Due to the writings of Dr. Miller and Mr. Sardi, I began investigating possible naturopathic remedies to a persistent health issue I’d been experiencing that seriously interfered with my life—specifically, my ability to engage in strenuous activities appropriate for a twenty-something such as myself.
Short story, it ended up being a magnesium deficiency corrected by taking inexpensive probiotics, i.e., good GI bacteria.
My experience at a naturopathic teaching hospital near my home was a revelation—they do not accept most insurance, but the cash price is reasonable, and far and away a better deal than the mainstream gastroenterologists who don’t have a clue. The doctor and his students also spent far more time with me than any comparable mainstream doctor would have.
Although at the moment I can’t afford a monetary donation to LRC, I hope one day to “pay it forward” comparably to the benefit I’ve received.
