Scorpion Stings, Bee Stings, and the Umami Hypothesis

I suspect that hormesis is one of the factors at work with sting therapies.

Wow! makes sense. But where we could ever find a therapist like that in USA?

Poo transplant therapy has taken off more than I expected, so maybe we'll get lucky and other unconventional therapies like these may become more widely available in the future? I'm not holding my breath, though.

In the meantime, learn all you can of the lessons of hormesis and "hard nature" from folks like Wim Hoff, Todd Becker, Seth Roberts and our own Eric.
