My late teacher and friend Louis Awerbuck had me go without my meds for a couple of days before and during one of his classes. Iím a diabetic and have the accompanying condition called gastroperesis. It caused nausea and vomiting. I was having issues with this when I attended Gunsite. I had discussed this w/Louis and he opined I needed to train for a worst case scenario (the meds I was taking at the time were less than completely effective). I was able to push through and perform to an acceptable standard. My latest meds have been effective for years so itís a moot point but it was good to know just in case...
