Sean Carney has been an Internet enthusiast since the very early 1990's and his initial interest in the Internet was as a way to disseminate good health information.

Rule #2: If the Internet is NOT Everything; Refer to Rule #1 And, Yes, I am open minded!  :-)

  • We do not have lab numbers to compare for this group. We did not draw the starting blood for this group of participants. The participants provided those results to the organizing entity of the event by going to a prearranged lab and some of the test results were quite old. They would not have been accurate representations.We were only able to measure, and compare, the Vitals: Blood Pressures and Weight.

  • We observed that serving avocado and peanuts both on the day before a final blood draw appears to negatively impact the drops in blood sugar. We also suspect the lack of beans for breakfast as at all the other previous retreats may also have played a part. But, that said, we still saw improved numbers in a very short time frame!
