Anti aging herbs

Common Questions and Answers about Anti aging herbs


Avatar f tn What vitamins can I take to prevent aging? Exclusively the face and neck areas. If there is not a vitamin, can herbs help and what kind? Any Natural Preventions?
Avatar m tn Here's the problem: nobody ever claimed gingko by itself did anything about dementia. It does help oxygenate the blood vessels, and protects blood vessel walls' integrity, but herbs are used in combination, not alone. Problem with these pharmaceutical studies is, they always study herbs in isolation, and that's not how herbalists use them. There's a difference between how herbs are advertised and how they're used by professionals.
683167 tn?1302879300 Yes, there are many Chinese herbs that have anti-viral properties. This would definitely be a situation where you would need to consult a practitioner of Chinese medicine to make sure he/she addresses both the viral component and immune system component, since your case is so unique.
Avatar f tn I haven't heard of any of this anti-aging stuff with these two supplements. I use Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA) to help with peripheral neuropathy. I noticed that it really does cut down on the amount of neuropathy I experience. When I did some online research for Acetyl L Carnitine and neuropathy, since it's also used. The difference is that it is recommended that people check with their doctors before using the Acetyl L Carnitine.
Avatar f tn Go to ulta and talk to their estheticians for a professional recommendation. While pregnant do stay away from retinols which are anti aging. They can cause birth defects. But look for something that has hyaluronic acid in it which is a natural chemical our body makes which helps retains moisture by 1000x its weight. So it is super hydrating which will help reduce and prevent wrinkles.
Avatar m tn I haven't seen the research, but neither of these are primarily anti-viral so I'd doubt they would work. I repeat, I haven't seen the research. But when I was in the natural medicine biz managing health food stores, my training from herbalists, nor the herbals I've owned, did not use either of these as anti-virals. Astragalus is primarily used for boosting the immune system and Pao D'Arco as an anti-fungal, particularly against candida albicans.
Avatar f tn Before using any serum, I'd check with your doctor to see what they recommend. Has your doctor given you any advice on what you can do to treat the alopecia and fast aging?
Avatar f tn No, there is not any interference in the results because of taking herbs.
Avatar m tn It has been used for thousands of years as an anti-aging tonic. Many people feel it to be the chief tonic substance of Ayurvedic medicine. It is a chi tonic and a jing tonic in Chinese medicine. It is an extremely rich plant source of organic minerals. Depending on its source it contains as many between 70-85 complex minerals and trace elements. Shilajit comes from humus.
Avatar n tn I suggest the use of products that are hypoallergenic and also with organic ingredients such as vitamin C and E. Anti aging products may also be beneficial especially for women with fine lines and wrinkles. A healthy diet,decrease intake of fatty food, cessation of smoking,adequate sleep and daily exercise will ensure not just great skin but also a healthy body in general.
Avatar n tn Im going to begin treatment in about a month and I am wondering what herbs and vitamins people have used while ON treatment? And thoughts on do you think they helped you either feel better and possibly clear faster....etc.. Any of your thoughts would be appreciated. Is there a list of herbs to take somewhere on this forum?
Avatar n tn s fine. There are many herbs that are anti-inflammatory in action. Two used often with RA are the one you mentioned and boswellia. There's also turmeric, ginger, fish oil, proteolytic enzymes taken between meals, and, really, just a host of things out there to try. But since you don't know your herbs and we don't know your overall condition, the best thing to do is get a good book on the subject and how natural healing is done.
559992 tn?1216169738 I'm new to this site, but not new to pain. I cann't use any NSAID (anti-inflamitory drugs) tablets because they cause severe indigestion. Tried pills, suppositories and creams, they all caused indigestion. What I wanted to know is what natural supplements can I take to help with my pain. Also what foods should I avoid and what should I eat more of. If anyone can give me advice I would really appreciate it.
348629 tn?1212325673 I always like to mention that there are many vitamins, minerals and herbs that can use a more natural approach in taking the edge off. If you are interested, please check out my journal. Best of luck regardless which route you elect to take.
Avatar m tn t want to take too much -- but it is an essential cofactor in the production of serotonin. There are several anti-anxiety herbs floating around out there that aren't very common, and some are addictive -- ethnobotanists are finding new ones all the time as they scour the world for traditional remedies. If you use kava, make sure to buy from a very reputable company owned by herbalists -- bad kava can be liver toxic.
Avatar n tn Ive been off my anti depressants for 1 week. I am an an emotional mess!! How long does it take to return to a normal state of mind? Im also detoxing from xanax and vicidan at the same time. My doctor gave me clonidine for withdrawel symstems. It does work very well for the sweats, nausea, and chills. However i keep crying constantly. My son was in an accident sept 5th which is why i started the anti depressants, and xanax. Then vicidins came into the picture.
653169 tn?1303446369 t be taken regularly, as it is an anti nutrient -- anti bacterial, anti fungal. Antis should only be taken as needed to prevent bacteria and such from becoming resistant to them and to avoid cleaning out good stuff from your system. An astragalus based formula would be better for regular immune system use, unless your immune system problems are due to an overactive system, in which case a supplement called Moducare might be better.
382218 tn?1341181487 Talking about his MS, staying healthy, diet, 'anti-aging' stuff, things to increase energy. He certainly seems pretty energetic, hyper almost.
Avatar m tn Has anyone tried certain amino acids and herbs for improving their health and immune system and etc. Like I read research pro-line,lysine with Green tea and vitamin C extract is good for blood/cardiovascular health and as well cancer prevention treatment. Others - olive leaf extract, selenium, colostrum, cal/mag.
Avatar m tn yes.. herbs were useless for me and i'm sure they ll be helpful for hepatitis a although it's not necessary. don't use anything like herbs from sidha,ayurveda,homeopathy and so on. there are a lot of doc who always there to engulf your money here in india by using the names of herbs. be very careful. and very dangerous thing is as there is no proper studies on herbs, who know, it may develop unknown mutations. it's not good until there is a vast amount of studies.
Avatar n tn There are alternatives, such as anti-parasitic compounds that will usually contain black walnut hulls, wormwood, and other anti-parasitic herbs. If you do try the earth, don't inhale it or get it in your eyes, and learn how to use it as safely as possible first. And remember, use food grade. Don't buy it at your garden center!
Avatar f tn Does anyone know if a handheld LED/Ultrasound device used for skin anti-aging purposes would affect the thyroid if used over the neck, if there is a diagnosis of hypo OR hyperthyroidism? Thank you.
