Master Bladesmith Daniel Winkler and his longtime partner/wife Sheath Maker Karen Shook own and operate Winkler Knives. Daniel Winkler has been making knives and axes since he was in high school and has evolved into one the nation’s top knife makers. His handiwork is in use by police, firefighters and special operations units across the world. They have been featured in movies, such as LAST OF THE MOHICANS, on television, and written about in numerous publications. Your first impression may be, now that’s an expensive knife, but let’s take a look at why.
MCAS is not well understood and is probably not adequately diagnosed, since many of the symptoms are quite vague and could be attributable to many other things. I think the relationship between MCAS and mold toxicity is fascinating, and well worth further investigation. I wrote about the severity of mold toxicity here are while back, so for anyone suffering from MCAS, looking into mold exposure would be a good idea. I have also had a handful of patients with Lyme disease who also had MCAS. I have never used Low Dose Naltrexone in my patients who have presented with MCAS but given it is immune modulating, anti-inflammatory and is frequently used to balance auto-immune processes, it would seem to be worth a therapeutic trial.
