I have been writing for more than forty years and I think the radiation has finally got to me as I have been diagnosed with Parkinsons. Is there not a kind of bib that can be worn by heavy internet users to ward off or minimize the radiation? I will not be spared but others will. more

Though I strongly believe in the power of meditation, I do not believe it's an alternative for medicine.  For instance, meditation will not clear up an infection like antibiotics do; it's scientifically impossible.  I do believe in meditation as a stress reliever and a way to help with some auto immune issues, but there is a strong line between medicine and meditation.
