I have the same problem,and I have found chiropractors/acupuncture to be magical in fixing it. Also try swimming / flutter kicks to strengthen little muscles in your back. Sorry feel better!

I know this is a long shot and I know that if Grok had ulnar nerve entrapment, he'd be SOL, but is anyone familiar with any actual fixes or therapy for this, so I can avoid surgery? http://orthoinfo.aaos.org/topic.cfm?topic=a00069 for info on... (more)

Not sure about your situation specifically, but I've been sorting out some similar issues in my shoulder...and I found the solution by hunting paleo (info, not animals). Robb Wolf's podcast led me to Tim Ferriss' blog, which led me to his book,... (more)

I always make soup out of the bones after a roast chicken, or any beef or lamb cuts with bones. I save them in the freezer until I have enough or need to make another soup. I also save up the ends of veggies like celery rather than throw them in... (more)

UPDATE: Wow. Now that I followed the link back, I have to agree with Patrik and others.. their claims at that website are too dramatic and overblown. Also a little disturbing is the fact that the linked website talking about the 'Master Tonic'... (more)
