    i came to the same conclusion and made huge progress without them. it wasn't a matter of willpower though, if that's what you're thinking.

    Have you been able to get much exercise lately, wolram? I find exercise to be a huge help in dealing with stress and other issues. Even a walk or a nice bicycle ride each day makes a nice difference in your outlook.

    Exercise really helps, Woolie. I get lots of mine involuntarily in the winter, like today, shoveling, scooping, and snow-blowing after storms. My driveway is only about 50' long and 15' wide, but I would drop dead trying to clear it without a snow-blower. Our typical winter storms are about a foot or more accumulation at a time.

    Good luck, buddy.

    Re: Confused

    I've had to look outside mainstream medicine to give my health a boost.
    I see one of your countrymen (gal), has been looking at some methods that have been in use for quite a long time. Here she reviews http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V8yKSolXqY4", from a scientist's perspective. If she's not too far, perhaps you could ring her up on the blower. :wink:

    I know what it's like,I am a master of the art of confusion. I often find that a trip to the supermarket looking at mops and other floor care products helps.

    :rofl: I had a college housemate that liked to do something along those lines when stressed from studying, go into town to Krogers and look at the canned goods. !! He was big into making homemade tomato sauce, so plum tomatos was high on the list. :rofl:

    Hi, I have been lurking for some time. I admire the knowledge all of you have. Thank you for Physics Fourm. In response, I go to the greeting card store and look and read the cards...this gets me out of my blue mood.

    Re: Confused

    I hope you may have a chance to watch some of the clips I posted. They are quite fascinating
    in their own right. From a scientists perspective, keeping an open mind to see
    what actually is going on. There are aspects of healing that people have been
    practising for centuries that modern science is only just beginning to grasp.

    Re: Confused

    Actually http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pharmacognosy" [Broken], but yes as scientists, we are aware that individual compounds extracted from plants, synthesized in the lab, were found to have medicinal properties and are now used as such. Salicylates from the willow tree is a common example, one derivative (acetylsalicylic acid) became known as aspirin. However herbalists go quite a bit beyond this. If you watch the rest of these 3 video clips, you will see.
