I have tied all of the things mentioned except the Glycine and that evidence does not fill me with confidence

HRT is great for anxiety. It has helped me an awful lot in general and has been some help the sleep problem. Of course it does have its down sides. The major one is not a problem for me as I had a hysterectomy years ago so don't have to take the progesterone ingredient. My doctor and I decided that the other risks were minimal in my case and that sleep was necessary and beneficial. If I have a slightly shorter life but a happier one then that is fine by me!

Personally we have been very lucky not to have been dependent or prescribed any course of drugs. The odd bp tab as and when the need arises.
All meds and drugs have side effects and usually encourage the GP to prescribe another med to counteract the existing one (s).
We know so many people of our age who take multiple tablets daily from their little dispensers labelled days of the week. It's sad as I'm sure half are not really necessary.

If I find I'm tossing and turning and can't sleep it only needs my wife to indicate she is awake and I go have a shower. Always works and sleep follows almost immediately.

You might find more interesting reading here. Elizabeth Gay is now 86 and as fit as a fiddle. http://www.healthscams.org.uk/index.html

The FSA licensed a twice convicted fraudster to handle our lifeīs savings. Guess what? He robbed us of £750,000. http://raynipper.com

You might do better looking up what causes high BP and how the tablets work Raymond.

A lot of people are living a longer more comfortable life with modern medicine, in fact the human race as a whole is living longer than they did in the stone age.

Just think yourself very lucky you donīt have to depend on it.

Yes we never should underestimate the power of modern drugs

We depend on medication or surgery, in his case itís been surgery and radiotherapy in his fight against multiple cancers

but we also depend on natural things, like juicing , diet , fasting

I have no idea if it works and therefore would never recommend it to others

But heís still alive , not 5 years free of the metastasis of melanoma, or in fact prostate and bowel cancer

But given that his prognosis was much less

We are hopeful

As all who have cancer Should be, itís not a fight , itís a fact of life

Maybe rather than fight we should embrace that this is something we need to embrace as part of us

Not all are able to fight

I think it's important that people are able to deal with cancer (or any illness) in whatever way works for them.

For some it will be a fight, for others, not.

I've known people who have died of cancer carrying the extra burden that somehow they didn't have enough faith. That's a dreadful thing to put on anyone but it happens.

Faith, fight, acceptance No matter

We will beat cancer

Maybe not individually but collectively

Cancer is not a personal vendetta , it seeks only to survive in its environment regardless where it finds itself

To think of it as other is to accede to it more than it is

We survive with the aid of modern treatment which is making enormous strides to combat and defeat cancer

One day it will be a thing of the past

Well, I had an unbroken night's sleep last night. It does happen every once in a while. More so since I started the Amitryptaline. It is supposed to help with pain but that does take a while to kick in. Usually if we are going somewhere the next day I am awake planning the journey and ticking organisational boxes. Not last night. Hey ho.
