There are actually a number of trials published in reputable medical journals, that suggest acupuncture does have noticeable analgesic effects. Obviously, it will not cure the underlying condition.

Fairly short term, but very useful to gat you over an acute relapse, or, for some conditions which are only short lived anyway.

IMO acupuncture carried out by someone trained is wonderful.

Being from the "scientific" side of medicine, I was hugely sceptical, but having suffered from a bad back for many years, I eventually succumbed a few years ago, when the pain was at its worst.

I went into the clinic in agony, lay face down and had the needles inserted and apparently was asleep within 20 minutes.

However, be aware, there are many charlatans out there.

Morning all.

Very dark here this morning, I think there is a storm coming.

Light box is coming out, so we are obviously going into the dark months. A lot of people think they are like witch craft, but surprisingly there is very good evidence that they work.

What's an iron?

I too have lots of bulbs to do, but I suspect it will not be today.

See you later.

Dove you are obviously too light to trigger the sensor.

Morning / afternoon all.

Grey cold and gloomy here and overnight frost.

SM done, it seems to be getting busier at opening time. I refuse to go at any other time, as the mindless hordes do my head in.

OH working at home today, so a little bit of company.

Have a good one.

Lou be very careful what you do.

The dispute we have with our new neighbours, has been getting worse over several months and is rapidly escalating towards very unpleasant consequences.

It has now become unpleasant to live in our dream house, which we have been in for over 20 years.

Try not to do what I do, in that if people are nasty to me, I try to be doubly nasty back.

It is not working for me and it probably won't for you. If possible avoid worsening confrontation.

That's what I am doing with mine Hosta, but it is the first year I have grown them, so I don't know whether it will work.

Afternoon all.

Still very windy here.

Have lifted and chopped back 30 Dahlias and they are now drying out in the inner hall. I don't think OH will be impressed.

Bath and then a lie down I think.

is it safe to ask a HF question yet?

I agree with pansyface, I would not plant another tree in an area known to have HF.
