I was advised to give the herbal remedy St John's wort a try when I was suffering from extreme exam stress during my finals. This herb is commonly marketed as a 'natural prozac' and is used to combat stress and minor depression. I hoped it would relax me and stop me worrying all the time so that I could work more effectively. However, after a couple of weeks of use, although I was feeling less anxious I was also feeling emotionally numb and apathetic about everything. I found this disturbing and unnatural. I don't suffer from depression and certainly cannot believe that blanketing feelings is a good thing in most situations. Therefore I wouldn't recommend this supplement to people who are normally quite emotionally balanced but are going through a tough period. Do you really want to feel like you simply don't care? People who feel as if they may be suffering from depression should go see their GP, after all a pharmaceutical drug is usually both purer and more effective than a natural but impure supplement. The rest of us should look on the bright side and have yet another cup of tea instead.
Repeat after me... "I shall only buy a minidisc if it is one that allows me to record!". Far too often when I leaf through so called 'Bargin' pages of catalogues I come across cheap mindisc machines that on the surface look unbelievably good value. Only when you read the small print do you see that these machines will not allow you to record from CDs onto blank minidiscs. There is no point buying a minidisc player that will only allow you to listen to prerecorded minidiscs. Prerecorded minidiscs are just as expensive as CDs and you will find yourself buying albums twice, once on CD and once on minidisc. The whole point of owning a minidisc player is so you can record your CDs onto a more compact, transportable format. So it pays to pay out more. Look for the word 'recorder' or don't touch with a bargepole!
I have 13 body -piecings, all of which are uninfected and all of which were done by repuable piercs under sterile conditions. As i work in a mical research nvironment I have been appalled by the ignorence surrounding body-piercing both in te media and by the doctors themselves. Contrary to reports by tabloid newspapers tongue-piercings are no more likely to result in oral cancer than any other wound in the mouth. Also so long as you are sensible enough to wash occasionally (and ensure your piercer is reputable and your jewelery made from a suitable substance) you will not contract blood-poisoning nor any other life threatening infection. Minor infections can be treated with antibiotics. I have experienced first-hand preudice from doctors regarding body piercing (including on refusing to touch a navel-ring). Please do not put up with such nonsene. An infected piercing does attetion and you are intitled to proffessional treatment without judgement.
Research has confirmed that a good intake of calcium is vital in building up a strong layer of enamel over your teeth - not to menton keeping your bones strong. The difference calcium makes is astonishing - keeping your teeth cavity-free if used in conjunction with flouride toothpaste. I would recommend calcium tablets to those people who have a deficit of calcium in their diets e.g. people who do not drink milk. Calcium is especially imprtant for growing kids and so if your's refuse to eat dairy products perhaps u should consider these. It is also important not to abuse calcium tablets as overuse can lead to calcium deposits in the bones and kidneys. People with any mobility problems should seek their doctors advice befor useing calcium supplements.
Elements has taken over from the saturday Slimelight club to become the most successfull club currently hosted at the electrowerktz. It has a partyed-up techno vibe and the music is suprisingly varied for what is essentially a smallish venue. The crowd ranges from the average joe shirt wearing brigade - with girlfriends in little tops...to the hardcore clubbing electrobunny cyberdog junkie. What's great about this night is that it is open until 6am and so provides a great place to go after another club if you can't face going home yet. Tubes start running at 6.oo am on saturday mornings and since the club is only about two minutes walk from angel station there is no need for night bus hassles. If yo van afford it then there are cabs to be hired from outside the club. Warning though that parking in Torrens street is extreamly limited.
I have used both herbal nitol and the regular stuff, with the latter being (as you would expect, slightly stronger). The problem is that although these products do help to make you fall asleep, they don't seem to guarantee that you will sleep for any length of time. My insomnia take the form of falling asleep relatively easily and then waking up two hours later - for the whole night. I would wake up wide awake even though I had taken nitol only a couple of hours previously. I would therefore recommend this product only to those people who have problems falling asleep in the first place, but not to those that tend to wake up too soon.
You should make sure that you have something to eat before taking this product. The ingredients contain anti-inflamatory drugs that can weaken the lining of your stomach and cause minor internal bleeding or just an ache. Best to protect yourself against this by lining your stomach first. However the drug is fast acting and generally safe. Best used with caution by asthma sufferers though as it could exacerbate symptoms. This sort of pain killer is really good for pain such as toothache and headache, but probably won't work for migranes.
