Alternatives to medication

While my proGav shunt continues to act like an unruly child with the cold weather, I've decided to distract myself in the meantime. This weekend, I went to see the Marvel film, Dr. Strange. I was surprised to learn upon watching the movie that the main character, Dr. Strange was a neurosurgeon.  I found it awkward watching a few scenes were there was surgery. I couldn't help but think about my past shunt revisions.  I didn't know in advance the movie was about a neurosurgeon. A large portion of the film focused on how the body heals itself after an injury.  It made me more interested in how the body heals itself.
