Also be wary of small cuts or stubbed toes if you go barfooet. Though I don't have CES, the general nerve overload of my migraines makes my feet far from sensitive, and I have actually walked through the house, leaving a blood trail, after banging a toe against something steel.Saw palmetto can help with aging male bladder problems as well, cutting down on the number of overnight pee trips.If any of your readers are near Amish enclaves, they are BIG believers in herbal medicine, and often are a lot cheaper than online stores.Sorry, that's all I got.
