  5. Your Story
    Chronic Illnesses have always reminded me of gremlins within your head and body. These gremlins are childish and bored so they scratch and graffiti the walls. It hurts and it's frustrating but what the goblins don't know is that the walls they are drawing and scratching on are learning. They are...

    Hi. Sorry if I'm posting this in the wrong subforum. I'm at my wits end. Any help appreciated. I'm female and in my thirties.

    Anyone ever try dandelion tea or any other herbal teas for their gastro issues? I know several people that drank Fleura (canned sparkling dandelion tea) and became more regular (at least while drinking it).
