welcome mr. steve lord. first, i just have to have a little fun here
--"but then i'll get serious i promise".
now, let's see, a cotton ball and thumb sucker. huuummmmh-sounds like you're trying to scam and get rich here. let's see--------------------
price of 1 cotton ball-.o1 cents
price of thumb sucking coach-.00cents
there is no research supporting this as to what mainstream med. seems to want and require
you do have you say real people that have tried this for various ailments and it has helped or cured them-
the side effects are maybe if not removed carefully fuzz stuck in the ear-
another side effect could be falling asleep and biteing the thumb-
the only comparison would be thumb suckers or non thumb suckers and cotton heads to non cotton heads
now-current prices from some what main med. has to offer
price app. tysabri--$40,ooo a yr.
dr. appt.'s etc. say $2,000 a yr.
there is 70 or 80 yrs. of research and billions spent and the best they've come up with is a "theory"
there are people useing current drugs that although they feel it's helping a little some they can't be on too long for various reasons
side effects can vary from liver, kidney, heart,brain etc. damage. and with some side effects were death.
their comparisons are in groups of people with symptoms that are named ms "based on a "theory" and there are no 100 per cent test for it and as many as 10 to 15 per cent have been misdiag. and they base it on a disease they first give to innocent little mices that isn't exactly what we're supposed to have but close enough for them and it seems to help the little fellows and those it don't they can flush--a little harder to flush us down the toilet. although?????????
so, let me see--cotton ball thumb sucker verses main stream--well that's something to think about, maybe make fun of, maybe try or flush. this is a discussion. with all due respect.
now, i'm gonna be serious
-although there is usually some truth to humor
now, you say that it's imperative to get away from electronic's etc. i have read on "grounding pads" they to my understanding are to ground a person and this will take the negative impact electricity, cell towers etc. has on our bodies away. if you are not aware you can google earth grounding pads they make them for beds, floors etc. i'd think for someone as myself who is homebound pretty much and though your theory is very simple to try there are roadblocks for some. unless being gounded would help. very curious as to your answer.
also, has there been any reports of it helping spinal issues such as bone spurs, stenosis etc. it's a stretch i know but thought i'd ask.
thanks for bringing this here - until someone comes up with something that's a shoe in for us all-what's to loose-even if it helps 1. hey, i'll take one of those placebo's for life.
what's the fda gonna do as they have done with other natural things like cannibis that helps. what are they gonna do?? have the law come in and confiscate my cotton balls and threaten that i don't quit sucking my thumb i'll get fined, put in jail or if i keep up this bad behavior the thumbs may have to be removed to keep harm from myself and others.
