A close friend just showed me the handful of pills sha takes every day. A typical lineup:

2 diabetes
1 high blood pressure
1 for anxiety
1 for sleep
2 steroids for the autoimmune rash that is appearing

And she has seen me take the opposite path. But as she put it, she would “have to turn her life upside down” to do what I do, and she’s exhausted and sick.

It seems utterly strange and overwhelming to someone who has been born into our modern food culture.

It is so weird to me, how there are so many people who are clearly suffering from the many diseases of civilization but cannot imagine their lives without the substances that are poisoning them.
