My self-treatment

Over the years, I have written about my self treatment. There are three distinct "phases", each were defined at different times in dealing with my health issues. Phase 1 focused primarily on bloog glucose control and a small component on pain management. There is a complete article that I originally wrote in 2013. Phase 2 focused almost… View More

When is a 4x4 NOT a 4x4?

My Ford F150 has 4X4 stickers all over it and is documented as a 4X4 in specifications and the user manual. Is is a 4X4?EDIT: On a flat surface a vehicle in 4WD is driving all four wheels. 25% of the engines torque is going to each wheel. In 4WD, you have 50/50 torque split front to rear. With open differentials you can lose traction with one front or one rear wheel and still keep moving. If you had front and rear… View More

My health website

I shut down dpanc.com on April 16 2014 out of shear disappointment. I had been contacted by several people asking details about my self-treatment programs. I gladly shared all the information I had – and discovered my self-treatment programs became the core of several commercial products costing anywhere between $60 and more than $200 monthly. Since my self-treatment programs costs are quite reasonable, these thieves were making and selling… View More

The ugly side of statins

Type 2 Diabetes is the result of one of two issues (or a combination of the two). In the first case and most likely case, your body is resistant to the insulin your pancreas produces. In the second case, your pancreas may be producing insufficient insulin for your needs.With me, my pancreas is pretty much non-functional and I am dependent on two types of insulin.

Yiganerjing, caution

My seborrheic dermatitis dates back well over 40 years. Throughout all that time, the only treatment offered by any of the dermatologists is a corticosteroid cream. It is effective and I hate using it. The side effects are as bad (or worse) than the seborrhea. The side effects that I ended up with include small pimples and raised bumps (puss). They are not only itchy, but sore as well. I also ended up with some redness in and… View More

SLS scare tactics

There are postings on Facebook regarding SLS ... from individuals using scare tactics to solicit sign-ups for newsletters (and presumably, paid services).Any warnings or alerts about SLS are preying on fear – and nothing else. There's no science behind the scare tactics.Along with SLS, there are two other ingredients used in soaps and shampoos that are also part of the scare tactics. So, let's unmask the acronyms and discuss… View More
