Just as the body has the ability to screw itself up, it also has the ability to heal itself. And sometimes it needs a little help. The placebo effect is well known and accepted in the medical community. Not that I particularly care what CW medicine thinks, even though I earn my living from it. But I know you've probably tried everything about ten times and it is pretty frustrating. I have a good friend who had extensive surgery three years ago, had most of his soft palate, his tonsils, and his uvula removed. He felt great for about six months and then the symptoms started to creep back...now he is snoring just as badly as he ever was. Oddly, he has had some luck with honey. Maybe it is placebo, who knows? Of course the bad thing about it is that you have to keep it up forever. It just treats the symptoms, doesn't cure the problem.
