Advise Outside The Box.

Advise Outside The Box.

Has anyone had any strange advise to help with condition or a symptom. I was once advised to eat Pigeon for 3 months and my tremors would go. The nutritional benefits of pigeon are underestimated apparently. Never tried as thought not worth the effort trying to catch one.
