    Hi Mike,
    Thank you so much! Went cold turkey off several different classes of drugs, including massive opiates, 32 days ago and still feel more dead than alive. Still really, really sick. I will try all of these suggestions. Thank you so much for taking the time and effort to create this no-nonsense site.
