Common Questions and Answers about Herbal medicines and scientific names


Avatar f tn If you don't want to take the herbal route, and if you don't have enough money for meds and tests, perhaps you can do some survey of ongoing research programs, and sign up for one of them. These researchers would monitor you quite often. I'm sure there are several programs going on in the US. That is what I would do.

Avatar m tn vitamin C with N-acetyl-L-cysteine and taurine and L-glutathione (reduced), an herbal mix with turmeric and some other herbs that I forget which and I have to reorder because I have no bottle to read off the label, phosphatidylcholine, lipoic acid, dessicated thyroid (for hypothyridism caused by interferon treatment), vitamin D, DHEA sulfate, CoQ10, krill oil, DMAE, ribose and (occasionally because it gives me the runs) MMS (miracle mineral supplement).
Avatar n tn There are also quality control issues, specially with cheaper preparations, due to the lack of proper regulation of herbal medicines. Quite a number of people who are successfully using St John's Wort will view this thread, and I feel it would be a great discouragement for them to be told it was just like a vitamin!
Avatar n tn Unfortunately, curing systemic candida usually requires major diet changes and a strict herbal regimen. I will post again with more info when I can. Good lcuk to you all... keep the info coming!
475555 tn?1469307939 State your name (and any previous names, if any) and birth date and tell them the approximate years you would have been seen by them. Be sure to sign the letter otherwise they will send you a release that you have to sign and send back to them. Some of them might do that anyway but a signed letter sometimes will satisfy them without the release. Of course, if you are requesting someone else's records you most definitely have to have a release signed by the individual.
Avatar n tn He is in a school program, he's in a regular ed class with co-taught reading and pulled out for math. He's very bright and very social. We've had him evaluated for Autism and ADHD and neither was diagnosed or suggested. A psychiatrist (who charged us an arm and a leg) met him for two hours and said he by no means has autism, but he has some autistic tendencies, ie the impulsive behavior.
3097131 tn?1357088481 Also, and I know I there is no actual scientific URL connected with my info below, but BCAAs are used to avoid muscle breakdown in people with bad livers because the 3 BCAAs bypass the liver and go directly to muscle protein synthesis. http://svakanda.hubpages.com/hub/branched-chain-amino-acids-bcaa Is bcaa good for liver? The oral administration of BCAAs was found to improve health condition in patients with liver cirrhosis.
Avatar n tn They only last a few seconds. The build and peak like labor pains. Say I'm in the kitchen and I'll feel it coming on so I have time to brace myself. I'll set down whatever it is i'm holding and get ready. I have to cross my legs, bend my knees, hold on to something, clench my body tight, and try to breathe. Thank God it only lasts a few seconds. My 14 yr. old son witnessed it yesterday and tried to call 911. I kept signaling him not to. I knew it wouldn't last long. My gyno.
Avatar n tn I think everything is over and I clean up. I walk out of the toilet and in about 2 minutes time the stomach cramp and the fainting sensation comes back (I've fainted only once to date from this and was out for about 15-20 minutes). 6. When I get back to the toilet I have a really violent Diarrhoea episode in pure liquid state.
Avatar n tn Find a website that lists presevatives and you will be amazed at the various names of them, some are the same thing, different name. Try to fast for a few days and see what happens.And read every food label!!
Avatar n tn I've known I've had hepC for 10 years now, and I've read many books and websites on alternative/herbal treatments and have tried many of them myself (that I deemed safe). I've taken milk thistle (for many years now), NaC, ascorbic acid, alpha lipoic acid, licorice, dandelion root, burdock root, shittake mushrooms, turmeric, vitamin E, and many others that slip my somewhat fractured memory right now.
Avatar f tn (I'm no hippy dippy mystical type, but I do keep an open mind when it comes to medicines being both little pills from the pharmacy and weedy things like Granny used to pick: it's all chemicals, just find the right ones. So label me an open-minded skeptic.) I am impressed with this book because of the thoughtful and thorough discussion *explains* how the various herbs work, how to take them, what for, etc., giving *context* for each one.
Avatar n tn If natural medicines are a cure all, then why did so many children end up with polio, before scientific medicine was found? And why did alot of our grandparents get chicken pox and TB before modern medicine. Could it simply be because they ate better than we do, or could it be that they sweat their buns off and release the toxins out of their bodies.

Avatar m tn THE COLD The common cold is caused by several different viruses, in fact over a hundred of them. They have names like maxilovirus and rhinovirus. The rhinoviruses are the cause of more than half of the colds that people get. Colds mostly start in the nose, but they can also thrive in the lungs, the ears, and the sinuses, leading to sinusitis. A cold usually lasts for a week, sometimes two weeks, or more for some nasty strains, or if your immune system handles it well, only 2 or 3 days.
Avatar m tn "Not surprisingly, the NewYorker dude is not on the cure bandwagon." --Not surprisingly, some day he will because he does not deny facts and reason. "Let's assume these labs are genuine. This only prove what we already know. Spontaneously "S" seroconversion does occur (at about 1% per year for chronic HBV infection). In a country where there are probably hundred of million with chronic HepB, 1% of hundred of millions is still alot of people.
Avatar n tn You have the ability to post under something you don't agree with and give the reader another option from your own experience without attacking anyone. There are pros and cons with the medicines you get from a doctor and alternative herbal productives. No one has the right to make a choice for the reader and say.. this idea is no good..try mine. It would be like following the person while doing their groceries or while they are in the drug store and say..nope don't pick that one...
1530171 tn?1448133193 I am so excited to come across this post as I'm all for natural stuff instead of loading my body with more medicines. I have trouble sleeping because of Fibro pain and also have extreme fatigue. I plan on doing the Magnesium Transdermal Therapy and the Malic acid supplement . I have been searching online and looks like most of the Malic acid supplements come with Magnesium. Can I take these supplements while using the Tansdemal Magnesium oil?
Avatar n tn you should know that zoledronic acid injection is available under the brand names Zometa and Reclast. You should only be treated with one of these products at a time. tell your doctor and pharmacist what prescription and nonprescription medications, vitamins, nutritional supplements, and herbal products you are taking or plan to take.
Avatar f tn I have heard of some that are less expensive but I don't know their names and I'm sure they keep a low profile. And insurances vary so much that it would be hard for me to try to figure out your insurance tangle. That's awful about your husband maybe losing his job. Hope that's just a rumor and not true. There is absolutely NOTHING good about having Lyme disease.
748543 tn?1463449675 For the past few weeks I have been throwing around ideas as to the best way to respond to this matter. You see a recent article ( Feb.3 , 2009 NY times) titled "Best treatment for TMJ May be Nothing" nearly made me clench my jaw to pieces. While well written, I found that the author, Ms. Brody, relied heavily on out dated and narrow perspective supplied to her by a small group of dentists.
544292 tn?1268886268 It makes me very angry that these Doctors know and aren't telling people. I don't believe that they are ignorant. I've been over and over it again and again. It makes no sense that I would know more as a user of the drug than they would. There's so little on Tramadol or Ultram on the web. Tons on other drugs. Ok so the most alarming part of the Tramadol we would think would be the fact that it is a synthetic opiate. It's a Narcotic. It's just been slipped thru the schedule.
Avatar n tn I was looking for open-minded, non-judgemental, scientific and academic discourse, and possibly some supportive souls to share my tale and hear if there where similar stories being shared. I did not realise this was the forum for those who still believe that the world is flat and that everyone who thinks differently is wrong. Goodbye to you all and best wishes! I have a great life to be getting on with.
Avatar f tn Take your logic a step further. We should all ignore warnings and precautions on medicines and take it all on a case by case basis,too. We should run to the doc with every tube and bottle of whatever and say " you know this stuff says not to take it if you have a liver problem, but I want to see if I can get away with taking it anyway.
544292 tn?1268886268 Sounds too good to be true. (AND IT IS!) The fact is, there's already pain killers here in the house and I'm not going to take any of those either. I'm not taking anything. I'm going to ice it, lay down, rest and realize that my body has been thru a heelllla fight and it just needs a break, a breath. A moment. A freakity frackity day off. I've been in a tough battle for 21 solid cold turkey days and before that; the taper AKA "Let the pills run out....
Avatar m tn Third, he will detox my body and get rid of yeast and candida from all parts of my body using herbal teas. To get started, I'm presently drinking juices and herbal teas that he mentions on his web site to reduce inflammation. (inflammation in the body is a very good sign that something is malfunctioning) Also avoiding the following, No sugar. (cookies, cake, soda, etc.) No wheat. ( white bread, chips, crackers, etc.) No fruit because it contains sugar. ( grapes, oranges, strawberries, etc.
Avatar n tn I can not say that it will totally get rid of the problem, but I am off all medications and only using natural herbal products and much healthier than I was 10 to 15 years ago.
1358341 tn?1282213443 Tanya's UK feline chronic renal failure/holistic methods is a great website, Pethealth.abeautifulurn.com/herbal-cures-crf and www.littlebigcat.com/index.php?action=library&act..These have information on CRF, also have information on the supplements that I listed above. At this present moment my cat has started back drinking excessively, this started again two days ago, 6 days after a 20 day course of Amoxicillin..
