Michael, great to read your thoughts. I, too, am a type 1 on a hnliaeg journey. I was diagnosed at age 16 and am now 57. I've been through many diets and regimens, I have been working on hnliaeg since around age 35 years. Like you I draw a distinction between hnliaeg and curing. I've come to see type 1 as an instrument for learning spiritual as well as daily life lessons. I look forward to corresponding with you along these lines. I'll let my friend, who like us is a type 1 on a hnliaeg journey, know about your blog. I will be in touch.Oh, and I'm curious about your diet and regimen. After a number of diets, including 7 years raw vegan, I've been on the extremely low carb paleo diet for over 2 years. This seems to create the greatest balance, as you observed. I would love hear from you about this.Aimee
