Mitochondria

Sunday, February 25th, 2007

Of all crazy things I’ve tried for my migraines, the one approach I had neglected until now are the supplements. Things like riboflavin, feverfew, and coenzyme Q10 have been studied in the past decade in migraine prophylaxis. Certainly good randomized controlled trials have been done with positive results in riboflavin and coenzyme Q10. Riboflavin’s been […]

Vancouverite

Saturday, February 24th, 2007

You know what is funny. I spent so much of my childhood in Vancouver that those I grew up with assume I’m a Vancouverite. My cousins and aunt/uncle, for one, assume their guest room is mine, and I can basically come and go as I please. They don’t even treat me like a guest anymore.

Sunday, February 4th, 2007

This has been an eventful week for sure. It started off last Friday with the research day and dinner party afterwards. The next morning, it was off to Hong Kong for a week.
The flight was scheduled for 9:45am on Saturday, but it had snowed the first real storm of the season, so clearly Torontonians couldn’t […]
