I'm boring; acupuncture is as far off the medical mainstream as I've gone. I think it worked, to the degree that the problem (my PF) hurt differently after the therapy than before, but I don't think it solved the problem.

I did Active Release Therapy a few times, which is halfway between chiropractic and massage. It's like stretching, but with someone else doing the work, because there are stretches you just don't have the muscles in the right positions to pull yourself.

And then there was the time I went to the chiropractor who spun all the dials on the ultrasound machine up to "11" and touched the probe to my (injured) quad so each individual muscle started squirming - I think I called that "three weasels in a one-weasel sack."

Are these from another one of those video-touch-screen bar games? ;)

A naturopath friend gave me a liquid "remedy" for cold hands while winter hiking. You put a few drops under your tongue. It burns like the devil and tastes like damnation. It does seem to work, though I suspect as much by distracting you from your cold digits as by actually warming them.

For me, what really worked was biofeedback, primarily for pain management, although it helped with feeling better in general. That worked a lot better than antidepressants, and with no adverse side effects.

Problem is, my health insurance would pay 50% of the cost of the antidepressants, but nothing for the biofeedback.

I am thinking about trying the "master cleanse," but the fact that I can't find anything about the negative effects actually makes me more nervous about it.

I've done the "master cleanse" twice. Three things I would say about it: come off it slowly (clear soup or something on the first day), and you may want to also drink a potassium broth in addition to the lemonade. Also, do use Grade B maple syrup for the increased mineral content. I did feel that it helped me.

I've also done a "liver flush" with olive oil and lemon juice. I was really scared to do it, but it ended up being fine. I used really good (Bariani, found around the San Francisco Bay area) organic, extra-virgin olive oil and I thought it actually tasted pretty good. I also used Epsom salts; I think I would skip that. Blech. The liver flush made me feel weirdly clean afterwards, but it was good.

my massage therapist swears by drinking two tbsp of organic cider vinegar a day. she recommends diluting it. (but i havent tried it).

alternatively, whenever i feel a cold coming on, i take two tbsp of a certain dark coloured, herb-flavoured german liqueur, which is best stored in the freezer, and go to bed. it always seems to cure what ales me.

I admit to occasionally using Rescue Remedy ( http://www.amazon.com/Bach-Remedies-Rescue-Remedy-20ml/dp/B00016QT7Q ) when I feel anxious for no good reason. I don't know if it really helps or if the anxiety passes on its own or if its a panacea effect, but whatever it is, it works.

Grade B maple syrup is recommended at all times.

I think I like turboglacier's approach, although I might add some Chimayo red chile powder to the mix.

If you ever get a chance to try sensory deprivation, I highly recommend it to relieve stress.

This is kind of gross. I had a wart under my fingernail. It did not look like a wart. More like a round dark spot on my nail. Dude, it hurt. I went to a doctor to figure out how to get rid of it, and she told me how to hypnotize it away. And it worked, which is the weirdest thing of all. I did the hypnosis on myself, which involved imagining a pesonified group of white blood cells (looking like workers) leaving a factory and going out and chopping up a rock. I did this at night, in bed, until I fell asleep thinking about it. In like ten days the thing was gone.

Wart removal! I forgot all about that. We buried a coin in the backyard for each of my sister's warts. The coins had to be given to her specifically for the purpose. She buried them, and the warts disappeared.

I am frequently looking for new infos in the WWW about this theme. Thanx!
