Hi Marissa

I do not think I would make a "pyramid" or any system like it. While they have advantages, and I understand why the Gov't does it, they are easily misunderstood, misinterpreted and misused.

For instance, the pyramid has been much maligned and blamed for many problems, but i can make a few adjustments and show how it can be very healthy.

I prefer to teach overriding principles and guidelines and let individuals apply them to their life. This allows for individual preferences, individual health/medical issues, personal philosophical and/or religious outlooks, environmental influences, and other issues that may come into play. And it puts more power in the individual and not some system.

In Health
