The Full moon
Restless nights, edginess and digestive discomfort sound familiar to you during a full moon? Or have our ancestors passed down genes to protect us from night hunting predators?

If you are experiencing gas, fatigue, excessive hunger, constipation or diarrhea, trouble sleeping, head-aches or irritability, possibly your body has parasites in the digestive system.

Not something I would wish on anyone!
