    So, apparently your earwax could be key in diagnosing mental health conditions...

    Bit of a weird one!! Very early days as they are still not sure what the levels of cortisol might mean for diagnosis..... but its definitely thinking outside the box.
    I swim that much I dont have any amount of earwax

    I just wonder who came up with the idea to even think about testing earwax for cortisol.......

    I saw that and was convinced April fools had been delayed in the last lockdown!
    The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.

    I know that it sounds really weird an funny, but this method is actually working and it's the cheapest one! I went as a participant to a similar trial, and I was really surprised about the final result. All my life I thought that the gastric sleeve surgery was the only option for me to loose weight. However, after testing my earwax, researchers found that the cortisol dose was incredibly high. In other words, higher long term cortisol levels have delt to my abdominal obesity. Anyway, I decided to visit website pharmacy and start a well structured treatment plan, based on my doctor's recommendations. Hope to get well soon!
