In the late 90's I got my first Stevia when visiting family in the US... used it for porridge and where needed in place of sugar. Once hypothyroidism diagnosed, decade+ later, I was so happy not to have been using sugar. I enjoyed stevia [particularly granulated], certainly good enough as a sweetener without all of the bad stuff that goes with artificial sweeteners. (No sweetener needed at all now!)
I have recently heard a lot about Lyme Disease and its increase, even over here... just had this delivered to a mail box and wondered if anyone might find it helpful? Seems to me, we are increasingly discovering that nature has so much more to offer than 'they' would have us believe... like aged garlic [a recent post], cannabis oil. No one is saying that we do not need their often life saving drugs but just how many good alternatives will be found where a less harmful, less risky, one exists?
