I have no rocks to throw and no tomatoes at my ready.
I MUST, however, remark on your words "modicum of respect".
I believe I used that exact phrase last year when he berated me. I believe in a modicum of respect and I have seen him unable to do just that in many a situation. Pot - meet kettle - that's all.
And LD Di - I noticed in a thread you telling someone that getting their Amalgams out was a waste of time and money and that simple terrain would keep the metal from being dangerous to one's health. Um...it would seem that a 'holistic' perspective is not yours or ML's. Interesting to say the least. I liked your user name and figured it was a quote on a Jeaneau film, "Amelie" the way the simple delivery boy pronounced 'Lady Di' as in 'Lady Diana' - but I gotta say each time I read your words I feel like you've not taken a larger step back to view the whole body with a holistic perspective - and that disturbs me.
Amalgams = bad, no matter what.
A healer and/or a forum owner = a modicum of respect toward others.
