This is one of my big interests outside of apologetics and theology (one of many, such as: travel, nature photography, hiking, chess, all kinds of music, NBA, good movies, softball, flying, bike-riding, ping pong . . .). I have managed to come up with a number of “cures” for ailments that my wife Judy has suffered from. In my family, one of my nicknames is “Dr. Dave” (or, “Dr. Dad”) because of it.
