Re: Low Carb High Good Fat Diet

We actually read the Wahl's book first. It has several good ideas and no doubt works for many people. Many of the concepts in it are similar to the concepts in the books I suggested. One of the best things she says is how her diet works for multiple neurological conditions. This is similar to what t...

Re: CPAP

Several adjustments were made. I also tried a more sophisticated type of CPAP that adjusts itself to the person. Nothing helped. I can't explain it. It's just something about me.

Re: Foam Rollers

I also want to say that I use foam rolling in combination with a massage stick. I find that the massage stick can find areas that I don't seem to get with the foam roller. The knots in the muscles from RLS are typically more difficult to get out. I often have to massage the same area over 100 times ...

Re: CPAP

After about a year I noticed that the frequency of the jerks increased while using my CPAP. They even did a sleep study on me to get d...
