Small Update but Positive...and THANKS to JimmyLegs

Well I tried the Magnesium....its been about a week now I think...but I do notice a difference. The turning point was last night I thought..."I'm not hurting as bad, I'm not so stiff," and I think it's the Mag because I stopped the Zanaflex after a few doses.
Sure I feel tired at the end of the day and all if it is not totally gone but I do feel some relief.....its not as bad ...

Supplements regimen questions

Hi all,

After researching the internet for a few weeks we have compiled a first basic list of supplements (well i guess 6 supplements make a basic list compared to the 17 proposed by the BBD..!).As safety is a major concern we preferred to start with a small list that we feel confident about,with a view to continue researching and adding supplements along the way.

What ...

Brief Update

Hi Everyone,

I'll keep it brief because undoubtedly my posts here are still being read and monitored by people I'd rather not have reading and monitoring them.

Had to cancel my JH appointments in August in order to get my wisdom teeth extracted.

They said they'd call me when more appointment slots opened up. I have called back once more since then, but apparently there is nothing.

If anyone else knows what the deal is ...
