That's so true about modern medicine. My father had ulcers and only stayed on the restricted diet for short periods of time. He said he'd rather take the consequences than not live life while he has it. Unfortunately, as he got older he developed coronary heart disease and had to take blood thinners which caused a bleeding ulcer so bad he had to have a blood transfusion. No way I'm going down that road! I loved my dad and he died when I was only 24 , mostly because he didn't take good care of himself. He was so smart about so many things, but just not that. I remember making a promise to take care of myself so my kids wouldn't have to worry about me like I did with my dad. I know that there are no guarantees in life, but I better start keeping that promise.
