  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

The second super-dose antibiotic is working, I am starting to feel better now. Thanks for everyone's support


Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.

Good Stuff

Futures Edge on FIO

I am glad to know you are feeling better. ALL of the suggestions offered have some benefit. I do worry about relapses and such: I have had really bad bronchitis 3 times and multiple drug regimes. Now, if I feel the least bit off I start super dosing on what ever my body seems to point to whether it is VitC or zinc or H2O2 or garlic ..or whatever. all at once. Once hit the immune system can take a LONG time to recover fully.

Be well,

Respiratory Health & CPAP Machines

Big Mike View Post

The second super-dose antibiotic is working, I am starting to feel better now. Thanks for everyone's support



I just noticed on old post from you about respiratory problems and pneumonia.

My suggestion in brief is: Get a CPAP machine.

The CPAP machine is a little box (as big as a couple of books, stacked), with a mouth-nose mask and a water chamber. It is programmed for you personally by a sleep-specialist doctor. It inflates your trachea all night and keeps your blood oxygenated. It has a little humidifier that puts distilled water into your lungs as vapor, and helps them clear.

It is prescribed usually for sleep apnea, which often affects older or heavier people. Sleep apnea can increase body weight, affect the heart and cause other problems, by putting you into a low-oxygen-stressed mode at night, when your trachea collapses and you snore. That could happen dozens or hundred(s) of times per night.

I think this machine is a helpful preventive measure for bronchitis or walking pneumonia, by keeping your lungs functioning, encouraging natural drainage through increased airflow and hydration.

It has made a huge difference for me.

Good luck; let us know if this is something you try and benefit from.
