Re: Suggestion for Newbies/Reminders for Oldies

Mini, I don't think anyone who has experienced what I have would continue to keep faith in the medical community. All the same, thanks for your understanding.

Re: Air hunger

I don't know much about mycoplasma tests, but I do know that babesia (sero-positive) gave me drenching night sweats, among a few other nasty symptoms. I'm not talking a wet head or a small dampness on the back at night; I'm talking shivering, pajamas saturated, the sheets and pillow saturated, hair ...

I have one personal recommendation for anyone that takes Melatonin. I have tried many, many kinds (including my doc's), but I found that "Source Naturals" work amazingly well for me.

Re: LymeMD on Vitamins & Supplements

My opinion of this guy continues to flip-flop ... although he reminds me a lot of myself, where refusal to adhere to one camp is concerned. I cringe when I read about how much money people spend/have spent on supplements. I cringe when I think about how much money I could have spent on them, had I t...

Re: Health Tip: Relief From Carpal Tunnel

Many months ago, my carpal tunnel inflammation got so bad that I thought the pain would never subside. Sure enough, after weeks of wearing my brace religiously, all eventually went back to normal ... knock on wood.
