Weird Science

I was chatting with Annie of "It's Time to Get Over How Fragile You Are," and somehow it came up that I had tried a magnetic mattress pad for about a month while trying to find a treatment that would help me sleep and give me more energy.  I know a lady who swears by her magnetic bed, and she let me borrow a mattress pad she had that was the same technology.

I'm glad it helped my friend, but for me, it was a total no-go.  I could feel all the spots where the magnets were and it just felt really uncomfortable.  After a month I decided I was actually sleeping worse (which I didn't know was possible...), so I gave this treatment the boot.

Anyway, it got me thinking about all the advice I've gotten from well-meaning and often times informed (and some not-so-informed) people over the years, and I've gotta know...

What's the WEIRDEST piece of advice you've been given regarding your illness?  What's the weirdest treatment that you've actually tried??
