Thanks Lili! I had totally forgotten about posting this, and right at the moment, can hardly connect with what I was thinking, it seems so long ago. :-)
I will have to pick up the thread again when things settle down.
There is a lot of family upheaval, crisis mode, with illness. The sad thing is, when people are 'in the thick of it', there doesn't seem to be a place for the sensible, and/or alternative methods. By that time, the person is in the hands of the doctors, and for better or worse, that's the paradigm. One cannot fight that.
I do recall now what inspired me --those insights; so, thank you for your suggestion.
And thank you for being such a light on the forum. You and Archus have given alot of yourselves, and taken up 'the torch' as it were. Everyone has their time. Mine, on the forum has mostly passed, but I still like to contribute something now and then, esp. to the whole realm of "Natural Hygiene".
