Well he doesn't like coconut and as I understand homeopathy, if you dislike the taste and smell of a plant then it is not good for you and you should not use it.

I wouldn't say he is under any more stress recently, unless he is worried about his 82 yr old wife who is getting markedly forgetful. Both are extremely independent people and both have remarked that they are not accustomed to going to the doctor unless as a last resort.

FiL is much more sedentary lately. They do go for a walk every day weather permitting (not too hot, cold or wet). The used to go on long countryside treks but they don't like to drive now, He used to golf once a week until about 2 summers ago when he got something like heat stroke 2 or 3 times, even though it was not that warm generally. Just staying too long in sun seems to make him ill.

Another thing... he used to help with the housekeeping but lately they have a girl come in for an hour once weekly. So that exercise has suddenly been removed from the mix.

I wish we lived nearby. I would install a Wii, visit daily and encourage them both to play the sports and use Wii fit board.
