I am but a man of simple needs, wishing to share with others in joy and knowledge. I am married to my best friend for 38 years. I wish to learn from others,, and perhaps to teach others as well. I play native American flutes, and connect with spirit in that manner.

Hello It is around 4 AM here, and yes I am up. This is a usual for me most mornings as I have a neurological problem similar to R. L. S. most often only in L leg. I am under a doctors care for this. I have had to increase the meds that I take for this problem, I mean more than double the amount of drugs, and I am still up nearly every morning. I do not discount using medicine for this ailment, but just throwing more drugs at it does not seem to be the way to go about treating this. the drug is called Carbodopa/LEvadopa, it is most often used to treat Parkinson's disease. There are significant side effects from using this med at the level that I am currently using it. My question is Does anyone know of any non traditional method of treatment,, Herbs or other natural substances? I really do not like taking drugs, unless I really have to,

I do not manage to get to this site very often, but enjoy my visits. THe only problem I have is reading the test on the pages. Is there a way to change the text color? Currently the background color is dark blue, and the text appears to be a light grey.
