I just started a new job and one day into it I have a sore throat. I haven't been sick in years since going RV and I've felt pretty invincible around people with colds. However, I was training…Continue
Has anyone out there dealt with a deviated septum? I suffer from earth shattering headaches about once a month that involve a lot of sinus pain and pain behind one cheekbone, always on the same…Continue
Hi All, Has anyone healed a metal allergy on 811? I was able to wear earrings when I was a young kid but when I went through puberty I became allergic to all metal in my ears even gold and surgical…Continue

Wow, I have finally reached a point where I understand how people are living on 955. When I started 811 I went from about an avocado a week to half an avocado a day over the first few months. I finally decided this month that enough was enough. I've had a few overt servings over the last couple weeks but the urge is just kind of evaporating. I had some pumpkin seeds over the weekend and I couldn't believe that when I chewed them they tasted like oil. The test was tonight when I went for…Continue
