You could also use maple syrup.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Isayre ,i think you identified the issue with stevia,until the big boys can control it ,info about it will vary. Raise your own & use it,we plan to try raising some this coming yr.for our own use. With your kidneys equaling 1 ,how is your energy level ?or pain level ?My energy takes a terrible hit with both Lyme disease & kidney issues,pain with Lyme in joints & muscles & when kidneys are at their worst,lots of "back" pain.
My arthritis pain is horrible, and my energy level is totally in the dumper. It takes very little physical exertion to exhaust me. Climbing ladders is nigh on impossible for me to do at this juncture, and if I kneel or stoop down I sometimes wonder if I will be able to get back up. Arms ache and feel heavy also. I have often wondered if at some time in the past I contracted lyme without ever seeking its detection or treatment. We seem to have a lot in common in these regards.
We do seem to have many things in common. Your mathimagican abilities do not seem to have suffered at all tho.
If you would like to try some natural pain relief,mix honey & turmeric together,& sprinkle in some black pepper,i prefer the turmeric on the heavy side so the mix will gradually thicken to a paste,that way i get a good dose of turmeric without taking lots of honey which can mess up my blood sugar.My blood sugar was tested at 35 back in January 1979,that is coma level. I have battled with this issue for all these yrs. now & rarely test my blood sugar as we have managed to keep it in the 75 -85 range most of the time.The blood sugar issue seems like a walk in the park compared to Lyme & now this kidney issue.The turmeric is all i take anymore for pain,i got totally away from all chemical pain killers when we found my kidneys going down hill. I also take an herb called Cats Claw for inflammation,it also helps the immune system. I take green tea capsules 2 times/day for the fatique issue & it also helps with muscle inflammation,which is one issue with Lyme.I was taking a product called kidney essentials ,but the company discontinued that product,i found it very beneficial in how i felt.
