Re: New member needing support

Welcome Ben! I think the "natural approach" is a great way to go, and given that there is no clinically proven drug that will do anything besides temporarily mask symptoms, it's really the only way to go. And this is coming from a molecular biologist who has been involved in drug discovery...

Re: Max Lugavere Talk: TEDx Venice Beach

That was a great talk - thank you for sharing it. Nothing new, but it's always good to hear from another voice. I've often wondered if the government will ever get sued for their faulty food pyramid which shortened millions of lives and likely strongly increased the number of people with dementia in...

Re: Parents took 23andMe test, one with 4/4

I would tell him immediately if it were me, because he still has time to make some changes and optimize his outcome. I was devastated when I found out I was 4/4, but I am also very glad to have found out so that I can make the changes to reduce the risks. I think you should tell him but also provide...

Re: Anxiety!

I struggle with sleep issues at times as well. And like you, it's not falling asleep that's the problem, but staying asleep. I also have what I call "racing thoughts" where my mind will not slow down. I assume that you are already using melatonin? I started meditating on a daily basis abou...
