It has been a long time. The last time I blogged on a regular basis was a couple of years ago. I embarked upon a health journey I thought would take 6 weeks, then 6 months. It has now been a 3-year journey that is finally winding down.

In that time, I have learned even more about health, and used myself as a test subject along the way.
