The herbs and snake oil are merely prolonging the agony. I choose not to polute my body with a zillion different herbs in hopes that one of them might do something. Just because it's an 'herb' doesn't mean it's not potentially harmful.
I've never been accused of being particularly 'nice'... So I really don't care. ;)
All the talk of 8 million day regimes, zapping yourself with tens machines, flush this and enema that. It's crazy.
Desperation will do that, I suppose. Like my experience with the sheep drench. ;)
