This post notes the things I've been trying out, their prices, and whether the thing is worthwhile.
Taki Bar mid-June 2011: from kapaipuku.com – I got a set of 5 bars for about $13 from the health shop on Burke St. (corner of Swanston). http://www.kapaipuku.com/products/Original-Blend-Taki-Bars.html. Apparently it is supposed to detox. Took all five. Noticed a substantial increase in intestinal gas. My focus was on its impact on eyes. No unique impact, but it prompted me to start taking to work a box of seeds to eat.
Goji Antiox bar: July 2011. Found this in Safeway (macedon) for about $1.55 or so. Contains 160 calories with very limited sugar, and goji and other stuff. Nice. Worth paying $1.55. It actually costs more from the website http://wellnaturally.com.au/info/antiox-bars.
Also got seeds from Safeway (about $5 I think), to mix with cereal/seeds in the morning.
I'm drinking a lot of aloe vera drink (I love Aloe), distributed by sammi commerce http://sammicms.co.kr/_ENG/index.html – of s.korea. It contains aloe vera crush, alo vera powder, etc. details http://www.tradezz.com/buy_7855767_Aloe-vera-drink.htm . It is also quite cheap ($2.50 per bottle of 1.5 litres, and goes for two days). The whole lot 1.5 litres gives about 700 calories, so it is important to cut down other food.
Got melrose organic golden flaxmeal for about $5 from the Burke st shop. This will go for many days. Definitely worthwhile. I think that when I eat this my eyes feel better.

It appears that eating seeds is a very good thing. (see kapaipuku.com). The problem is that these bars are very expensive. There must be a way to make them at home. Unfortunately all recipes seem to require heating the seeds (baking/etc). That's sure to damage them.
How does one make such a thing?
Here's a candidate recipe: http://tamilnadurecipes.com/2010/10/12/ell-urundai-sesame-seed-laddu-recipe/

After trying more than 5 varieties of yoga mats (costly, cheap, etc). I've settled on the best one so far: by Jade Yoga. I'm using Sedona Red.http://www.bizrate.com/exercise-mats/oid2086605979.html – basically I got it for $64 or so. Worth the extra money. In the USA this would have been cheaper.

a) Clarinase ( Loratadine and Pseudoephedrine sulfate) – this works for me better than:
b) Fexal (fexofenadine hydrochloride). – this one has lower effects
