  1. Didi I am having severe hairfall for 2 years I have tested my skin and does everything but it won't do anything please if there are some remedies you want to give.

  2. Leg cramps, more often than not, indicate magnesium deficiency, not calcium which is what we have been led to believe. Natural Calm is a good drink to have for leg cramps.

  3. whenever i have cramps, i eat little salt ( say a size of a rice) and within seconds it disappears. try it, you will not forget.ok

  4. Last night both my legs cramped up at the same time while I was sleeping and had finished a 16 hour tour standing. I've never felt soo much pain. Thanks for the tips I must do all you mentioned.
