    Social Media And Depression

    You wouldn't believe how many of those followers and friends and likes are not real, but purchased. I sell social media services, and believe me when I tell you, tons of people buy these things. As far as the topic goes, social media is my business, it's what puts food on the table, so whether...

    Is it called sleep paralysis?

    Oh my God, this happened to me twice in my life that I can remember. The worst part was that both times while I was awake/paralyzed, I had a horrible terrifying feeling that someone was coming to hurt me, and there was NOTHING I could do about it. The first time this happened I was living with...

    Natural Ways to Fight Your Depression

    I believe the first thing that should be tried is dealing with the actual cause of the depression before looking at chemical imbalances. I heard a story the other day on a podcast. Some guy was talking who dealt with depression for years or whatever. And he told a story about going to some...

    Itchy spot on my leg (photo)

    Yeah man, definitely will report back. I found a dermatologist who worked for many years in the USA, and I called to make an appointment, but unfortunately he's in the US until October, so now I have to decide whether to wait or go elsewhere. I don't want to go elsewhere. I want to go to this...

    Scar treatment

    I still have this scar here. It's not a huge deal. However, there are 2 problems I have with it. 1) Aesthetics - it looks like I have 6 knuckles. I don't like it. 2) Pain - it doesn't hurt, but if pressure is applied or if I hit that area somewhere by accident, there's pain. More pain than...

    Tongue mycosis

    So, 10 years later I still have this. About 7 years ago I stopped all healthy living, supplements, everything. But 40 days ago I started again, and I will be dealing with this too. I believe it's candida overgrowth that's causing this. Aside from the general measures I've taken to improve my...

    Itchy spot on my leg (photo)

    I can't believe it's been 3 years since I started this thread. I still have this, and it's bigger now than in my original photo. To recap. This thing appeared about 3 years ago. Soon after I went to Greece for 10 days, and it went away. Then I came back home and it returned. Then I purchased...

    Sorry to hear about that. I can't be of any help, but I wish you all the best.

    What about soap, body wash, and shampoo?

    I looked around and found some interesting shampoos and soaps I can buy. You know, alcohol free, paraben free, with various natural oils etc. I'll take a deeper look when the time comes. Funny you mention it, I did see a soap advertised as shampoo. But to be honest, I'd rather my soap be solid...

    What about soap, body wash, and shampoo?

    This is what I'm talking about: Though I'm not really interested in nitpicking to figure out which specific chemicals to avoid and which are okay... as far as we know okay. I like the radical approach. So I'll go as lightweight and as minimalist as possible, and make it easy on myself :) I...

    What about soap, body wash, and shampoo?

    I'm putting this in the Skin section of the forum, as it's related to the stuff you put on your skin. So for the past many years I've been using the regular body washes and shampoos and soaps. Ingredients include: Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Sodium Chloride, Cocamidopropyl, Betaine, Glycerin...

    Truestorytotell - I'm back!

    It is inconvenient, but I'll figure something out. The good thing is that most supplements don't "spoil." Now, probably they can get stale, I guess. Lose their potency over time. But I'll figure out a way to get the supplements that I want from overseas, and then buy big, and sit on it. Not buy...

    What about Mouthwash?

    I tried oil pulling about 2 years ago for a while. I don't know, I wouldn't really want to make it a part of my daily or weekly routine. I know myself, and I know what I'm willing to adopt and what I'm not :) That's not to say that I wouldn't do it if I knew for a fact it would do great big...
