Re: chronic fatigue syndrome

One of my recent favorite quotes from Paul Bergner (December 4, 2016, FB), "The main issue is usually sleep debt, and most people, if they will lie in bed with the lights off for 12 hours for 3 nights in a row, will be mostly better after the third night. That is a screening test to see how bad...

Re: 5 weeds for food and health

You do not have to cook your nettles, you can blend them into a smoothie.. the point is that the chemical on the inside of the leaf dissolves the stingers on the outside of the leaf :P
