Acupuncture is bunk. And you're lucky if Chinese traditional medicine does nothing. At worst, it might lead to kidney failure. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-1254746/Chinese-medicine-caused-kidney-failure-cancer-So-safe-popular-cures.html mmmh i think the daily fail will lead me to kidne...

But just to help you fill in the blanks, I am going to guess a few potential reasons: 1. Money. It is possible they were paying a lot for that bottled water. 2. Bathroom issues. If you were wetting the bed, having accidents, or using the bathroom more frequently than other kids your age, the doctor...

... I just think western medicine is fairly lacking in many fields too. As a med school student, I was on call with a gp and watched him see patients back to back for 5 min slots and he prescribed a young woman Prozac for splitting up with her boyfriend without even looking up from his prescription...

Eastern medicine is based on belief and subjective experiences. Western medicine is based on knowledge and research. Use your own better judgment. In part this is true. But there are many times western medicine is based on totally different things. Convenience, fear of law suits, old data... Take c...

Btw, I don't believe in TCM either.

I do think Acupuncture worked on me for migraines. I tried Acupuncture with 5 different people and only one worked on me. I was with her for 4-5 years.

Feeling close to loosing it with children is horrible. I lost it and started shouting this week. It is very rare but extreme sleep deprivation (both kids are jet lagged from travelling so waking up at odd times) and my daughter's need for constant reassurance shooting right up due to transition anxi...

I have an aspie who is nearly nine and a most likely neurotypical 4 year old. Generally I try to stay back and not step in. If I step in it is because I feel it has gone on too long and is going off in the wrong direction and I step in to model the alternative (better) direction. I think of the end ...

I wouldn't say gave up. I had a very limited agenda. I studied for 3 months at the AUC and a madrasa out in the Cairo burbs, for that short period of time I learnt a lot. I came away being able to write pretty well and speak a little - but as I was learning fusha I didn't do so well on the streets o...

Really hard. I don't have any good coping tips besides giving yourself as much alone time as possible and chances to recharge so that you have energy to spare for such instances. Build yourself up - eating well, exercising and just taking care of yourself. My youngest will happily do yoga whilst I a...

Yes, I am pretty restless... I have lived all over. One day I am going to build a home from scratch though probably somewhere out in northern Maine or rural Japan and just stay put!

I regret it too regarding the private language. I lived in D.C. too! :D I had a research position on capitol hill and loved it so much. It is the perfect city. The way the mall just has galleries and museums and no shops. I hate shops! I just love the lay-out and feel of the city. Jazz in the sculp...

roaches, they scuttle so quickly that the only way I can deal with them is a vacuum cleaner. I remember in the army we were besieged with the little blighters, and since we were tasked with repainting the latrine [army talk for lavatory], a gross amount of those buggers were permanently entombed in...
