>Are you lives just wonderful now due to Mercola?

That's a great question. No, my life is not wonderful, I still get anxious and depressed and blow up. But considering that last year at this time I was in bed extremely ill and had been so for 2 weeks out of every 3-4 months for years, it makes me realize how far I've come. The major diff is that I'm not working full time anymore because I developed a very severe case of fibromyalgia. It's not just the fact that my work stress is dimimished because I've been unemployed before as well and unemployment has it's own major stresses. This time around I've bitten the bullet and commited to my health - because I was literally dying. Because I'm not working I have more time to devote to getting healthy. I get alot more exercise, eat a very healthy diet, take a bunch of nutrients, meditate, drink around a gallon of water a day, etc (in fact I practically live like a yogini except for the fact that I still love my drinky-poos and the occassional toke!). This lifestyle management definitely takes time, money and consistency and sometimes when I'm going through a rough spell I wonder if it's worth it. But I only have to look back 12 months ago to see the vast improvement, huge, immense. I'd love to be more happy, but that may take longer. Besides, I can't easily see how one can be low-level sick and be very happy, unless they've found another compensating factor like following a life passion (e.g., Stephen Hawking).

As for the energy, or meridian tapping, I agree it sounds far-fetched. It makes more sense as you delve deeper into the accupuncture meridian systems (that is, if Chineses Traditional Medicine isn't too weird for ya). I've tried it, and while it didn't offer much relief for a bad depression or anxiety attack, it's surprisingly effective for habits, public speaking, phobias. Mercola's site also has a link to another site that offers a full book download of the method - free even. I'd agree with you that most of these sites offering health advice also ply their wares, kinda takes away from the altriusm of their intentions. But Mercola's site has a huge wealth of information, and I figure I can buy the stuff if I want and won't if I don't.
