You mean like a man-Goop?

It's on reddit, but r/supplements is a good one. Just be careful how much you drink the kool aid, my Aunt recently died treating cancer with diet. There is something to that, but it didn't work.

I used to like r/nootropics but somehow didn't know r/supplements was a thing. Sorry to hear about your aunt. Which diet did she try?

Thanks but we weren't close. She ate mostly cottage cheese with tumeric, and took flax oil supplements. It's called the Budwig diet.

Oddly enough I knew she had cancer and her more immediate family didn't. I didn't realize the extent they didn't know. Someone might have been able to talk her into a mastectomy and saved her life. This is what she wanted though, there's something to be said for that.

I like the idea of nootropics myself, but they don't really work.

I thought I had heard of every fringe diet but Budwig is new to me. And I can sympathize with your aunt; standard cancer treatments sound like absolute hell.

I like the idea of nootropics myself, but they don't really work.

On the whole I have to agree, sadly. There are two that I like (L-Theanine and ashwagandha) but they only seem to work for like a week before I can't notice a difference anymore. Maybe it's better to cycle them.

A natural remedy for health? Try deadly nightshade!

You got me. That is even better. Because i know what actually works. :)

Ginger and Gingko. If your issues are likewise unspecific. You can't do nothing wrong with taking these two.

There are plenty of quack websites on the Internet.

    My wife has a friend who has gotten into that. She is into the alternative health scene and I like most of what she's into. I'm still not sold on the home blood analysis, though.

    There are only two. Raise your hammers to them. And get a beer.

    In my case this could be a wine. A red one.
