Pills for Every Gut
It's never a good idea to wander the aisles of your local health food store when you're not feeling 100%, because next thing you know, you're wondering if your adrenal glands are making you feel tired, or perhaps you need a little something to detoxify that liver of yours. On my last voyage to Whole Foods, I was impressed to learn there's a supplement for practically every organ and gland in the human body -- Mammary and Uterus Care Tea, Thymus Natural Glandular, Thyroid Energy -- you name it, they've got it. Call these supplements life-savers or a total waste of time, they are still pretty interesting either way. For you skeptics out there, consider that many modern pharmaceuticals are based on these very same herbs and plants, or think also about the workings of the placebo effect. For the converts, consider the fact that none of this stuff is regulated by the FDA (not that the FDA knows everything).
