Video I Recommend:
This video shows ways to stop pain without using drugs. Most muscle
pain and headaches stop in just a few minutes if you know where to put

pressure on most of the points. You can use your thumbs for the others.
Other Books I Recommend
Enlightenment by Jed McKenna. On the surface, this book
records a week in the life of an enlightened American in Iowa. Woven
into that week are instructions on how to achieve that enlightenment
yourself. Following these instructions, I had the most profound
experience of my life. Here they are: Every day, for at least 5
minutes, write on the topic: Who Am I? or What is me? Begin with Am
I this body? Am I these thoughts? Am I these feelings.
After that, you are on your own. It does not matter what your
answers are, or if they change from day to day. Continue this
practice for two years, or until you get the answer.

The Bates Method for Better Eyesight Without Glasses/With Eye Chart
Horatio Bates did the original work on eye exercises to improve vision. Yes, eyes use
