    Protein intake and Kidney Stones (with pix)

    Taking GymNtonic Nebivolol advice to the test…with results

    Ordered some generic Bystolic, Nebivolol, to see if I could get some better results than the Norvasc that I was taking. I ordered about 10 months supply for about $75, but it was the generic. My reading today after 2 weeks was 115/78, my best reading in a year! This is the second...

    It is because they are use to it. They are at best 1 generation away from being a communist state. My relatives were communists, not powerful people, farmers, from East Germany. It is less of a political party, but a cultural & mental way of life that has been cultivated far longer than a...
