Then I called a nearby clinic in the program and on top of paying the $75 per month I would have to come up with $3500 as well as some lab tests and neutriceuticals. I feel very bad that after caring for my parents for 10 years and having to cover some of their expenses and wait up to 2 years to be reimbursed by the judge as guardian, now I can't afford the lab tests that I need to prevent the dementia that they suffered to haunt me later. There shouldn't be medicine for the wealthy while working class have to die...something is very wrong in America.

They are offering a 15% discount through July 5 https://mailchi.mp/walkinlab/taxes-you-dont-need-to-file-for-this-deal-1040819?e=14afe7e22a (you only need to complete the order before 5 july, you can get the tests run up to 6 months, I think, hence). You could prioritize a few tests you want and order them without having to pay a doc. They run discounts every couple of months, you could order a few more tests later & etc.
The way these companies work is you a) create an account, b) you select what you want c) you pay them d) in your user area, they will have PDF lab requisition you print out. e) you take this to a nearby LabCorp location and get your test run (tell them it is prepaid) f) when the labs are done, you'll get an email telling you to go to your user area and get the PDF of the results to download and review (and print if you want).

I already take many supplements to support my health as I've worked on my feet for decades rather than a desk job. I went to a local health fair and was able to get a few affordable blood tests in April and I have an appointment with a local doctor later this month, I will try to find out how much a crucial test or two will cost so that I know better where other "holes in the roof" are lurking. He is a well known doctor in the area and is mostly a concierge doctor who would love for me to drop my regular insurance and pay HIM $100.00 a month instead...what a deal he claims he'd give me, lol. He has never heard of the ReCode Protocol so I will try to open his mind.
I don't want to restrict my diet any further where I don't have to, nor do I wish to spend money on any (very expensive) supplements that I don't need, nor do I wish to take unnecessary supplements in my case which might actually be detrimental by unbalancing my body or overloading it. I want you all to know that I really appreciate being here and I feel more secure and cared about by being in this group!
