Natural Remedies For Congestion During Exercise
Barb says: She gets a lot of mucus and histamine response after her hard workouts. After intervals on the bike or in the pool. It has been happening on and off for a couple years but lately it is very constant. Is this related to recovery? It is very debilitating. Do you know what the cause could be?
–Exercise induced anaphylaxis research study
Natural Remedies for Saddle Sore
Jeff says: Lately he has been getting acne on his backside. Sometimes worse than other days… sometimes looks more like heat rash. Also a bit down his hamstrings and lower back. He wears compression gear when he works out but has also tried going without anything (even underwear). He is wondering how to clear it up. It is more annoying than anything.

The Top 3 Ways To Relieve Stress At Night
R.C. says: He has been trying out Rhodiola and L-Theanine. He has been using the pure powder forms in both the evening and the morning. For relieving stress, when should it be taken? Should it be on an empty stomach? Is there anything else you would recommend instead for someone who has trouble winding down in the evening?
–Peace And Calm Essential Oil
–Thorne AM/PM Complex
How To Get A Better Butt
Tony says: He is wondering if it is normal for your legs to be wider than your hips. All his pants and boxers “ride-up” and it is really annoying.

Ben and Brock,
Thanks again for all the great stuff you guys put out there. So I really had a good laugh when you made that joke about perhaps finding out that you're Chinese. I've always considered myself Chinese – both my parents were born there. And if you recall meeting me, I think you'd swear I was Chinese. So I was delighted when 23andme told me I had a 91.7% chance of being Chinese!!! =)
Ha! Only 91.7% huh?
Interesting to hear about the sweetdreams vaporizer, because I'm experiencing really bad sleep.
Could you use this every night before bed time? Or would the melatonin which is included in the blend lower the bodies own capabilities to produce melatonin in the longer term?
Well, I would not PERSONALLY use it every night for the exact reasons you've stated…a couple times a week to "settle you down" isn't too bad, and remember the older you are the less melatonin you make, so while kids shouldn't use it period, adults can get away with a handful of times a month. Not based on research, just anecdotes and thoughts.
