Re: Is hair dye bad for us?

It is trendy here to have silver hair, but I use henna (only got a few greys) in a bar from Lush, it is really nice and makes my hair

Re: Mental stimulation in older folks lowers MCI

In this vein, there is a lot on the news today about work being protective in women after age 50... made me think as a stay at home parent.

Re: Hormone Replacement Therapy E4 Women

Re: Serotonin, Depression and SSRI Antidepressants

I'm unsure on the sleep but understand there is a link with serotonin and melatonin. I've found my sleep has improved since starting fluoxetine again but I need to take it in the mornings or it keeps me awake if I take it in the evenings. (I'm back on my original dose now and is helping me a lot wit...
