There's possibly alot of merit to your theory. As far as your implications of the silent board members; a moot point. Message boards are message boards are message boards and people will be people and it takes all kinds. Now back to your extremely idealistic way of dealing with the disease. Who has time? Who has the resources? We live in a fast paced world growing faster and more demanding all the time. Few have the time or discipline especially the discipline to go to such measures. We have been trained as consumers to want results NOW. We have fast food, fast cars, cell phones, the list goes on and on. I stand at the microwave oven and tap my foot because it takes too long. We want a quick fix, immediate gratification. It's the same for our cluster relief. There are people that visit this board who know alcohol will bring one on, but they drink anyway. There are smokers who know that smoking aggrevates the situation and continue to smoke. I'm afraid this message board for most is just like listening to talk radio or political debates, it's just a lot of mental masturbation. With all this mental stimulation coming to nothing we are just screwing ourselves.
If you have the time, patience, and resources to try your remedy go for it and please let the board know of your progress. Have a splendid day!
