What can we do for chronic constipation since 8-9 yrs? Are there any good natural medicines for this?

Posted by admin on Dec 31, 2009

I’ve tried everything… prune juice(doesn’t work anymore), fiber, drinking lots of water, herbal medidicnes. I always have pain from constipation. What is the solution to it or are there any good herbal medicines for it?


Constipation is passage of small amounts of hard, dry bowel movements, usually fewer than three times a week. People who are constipated may find it difficult and painful to have a bowel movement. Other symptoms of constipation include feeling bloated, uncomfortable, and sluggish.

Constipation – CAUSE

Common causes of constipation are

- not enough fiber in the diet
- not enough liquids
- lack of exercise
- medications
- irritable bowel syndrome
- changes in life or routine such as pregnancy, older age, and travel
- abuse of laxatives
- ignoring the urge to have a bowel movement
- specific diseases such as stroke
- problems with the colon and rectum
- problems with intestinal function (chronic idiopathic constipation)

Homeopathic Treatment(s) for Constipation :-

#Nux vomica [Nux.v]
Perhaps no remedy in the Materia Medica is oftener prescribed for anything than is Nux vomica for constipation. Nux vomica has peculiar and characteristic indications for constipation, and when prescribed upon these indications it will cure every time. Nothing is surer than this. But Nux vomica is often prescribed when these indications are not present, and often does much good; in this class of cases there will almost invariably be present one of the great clinical indications of the remedy, and that is, its value in antidoting purgative medicines. In many cases of inveterate constipation calling for this,that,and the other remedy, it will be noticed that expected results are not obtained and will not be obtained and will not be obtained until Nux vomica has been given to antidote the effects of drastic medicines. Then the case can be prescribed for, the indications followed, and success result. Another thing about Nux is the fact that while prescribed low, as in the tincture, it will frequently relieve constipation, but to cure it the drug must be given in a much higher potency. Hydrastis is another remedy that is sometimes useful after the abuse of purgatives, laxatives, cathartics and their like. In all these cases, however, the symptoms calling for the respective drug should be present. Hughes claims it to be superior to Nux as usually prescribed. He recommends a drop or two of the tincture in water once daily before breakfast. Hydrastis has a symptom, however, which is quite characteristic, that is a sinking, gone feeling at the epigastrium, which Nux vomica does not have to any extent. The constipation of Nux vomica is usually of the kind induced by lazy habits, inattention to Nature’s calls in the first place, want of exercise, sedentary habits, and a sluggish condition of the whole system. It is due not only to inactivity of the whole system. It is due not only to inactivity of the intestines, but to an irregularity of the peristaltic actions, giving rise to the great characteristic, constant ineffectual urging to stool, and when the stool does occur it is incomplete and unsatisfactory, as if a part remained behind. Absence of desire for defecation contra-indicates Nux. Inflammatory symptoms or pain generally contra-indicates. Carbo vegetabilis has urging, but it is due to wind, while Opium and Bryonia have no urging at all. According to d’Espiney, the physical signs of this inharmonious intestinal action can be felt by palpating the abdominal walls. Anacardium resembles Nux vomica in many ways. It has a sensation of a plug in the rectum which cannot be expelled. There is a fitful intestinal activity, but withal a powerlessness of the rectum. Even soft stools are expelled with difficulty. Small quantities may be expelled with each attempt. The mental symptoms of Nux are important in treating constipation, for the effect that constipation has upon the minds of some people is well known. In cases indicating Nux vomica there will be a great crossness, irascibility and objection to all opposition. The Nux stool is also apt to be large, and haemorrhoids are a frequent accompaniment. We may sum up Nux vomica by calling again the attention to the mental characteristics, the sedentary temperament,the fitful intestinal action and its antidotal relation to purgative drugs. Dr. Cartier,of Paris, well says: "Nux vomica should never be given in constipation according to the law of similars in the low attenuations, or in the mother tincture. An opposite effect will be produced thereby, an augmentation of the spasmodic state of the intestines; the higher the dilution the better the chance success. Nor should it be too often repeated."

#Sulphur [Sulph]
Many of the older homoeopaths used to give Sulphur and Nux vomica in alteration for constipation. They complement each other, follow each other well, but better results will be obtained if each be given singly when indicated; for, surely, both cannot be indicated at once. With Sulphur there is an ineffectual urging to stool, with a sensation of heat and discomfort in the rectum , and there is a general uneasy feeling all through the intestinal tract, due to abdominal plethora or passive portal congestion. It is very useful remedy with which to commence the treatment of constipation, though, unless the symptoms call for it, it should not be given. A bad constitution and frequent ill health are good indications to start with, a tendency to piles is another. The stools are hard, dark, dry, and expelled with great straining, the first effort to stool being extremely painful. There is apt to be much twitching and burning of the anus, the evacuation are often unsatisfactory, and, as in Nux, there is often a sensation as if a part remained behind. Another characteristic symptom of Sulphur is constipation alternating with diarrhoea. The general temperament of the drug has much to do with its choice; in fact, almost all of the indications for its use will be the general ones . The general venous system is usually at fault in true Sulphur cases, and anything that stimulates this system into action, such as exercise and cold, always benefits the Sulphur patient. Sulphur needs to be given high and n continued for any length of time .

#Opium [Op]
While the constipation of Nux is due to irregularity of intestinal action, that of Opium is due to absolute inaction of the intestines, a regular paralysis of the peristaltic movement. There is an absence of desire, absolutely no urging to stool whatever, and so the faeces become impacted in the bowels; and when passed at all come in little, hard, dry, black balls, here resembling the stool of Plumbum , but with Plumbum there is some activity. Another drug which has no urging to stool is Bryonia, but here the lack of urging is rather due to dryness of the mucous membrane than to intestinal inactivity; with Opium there is a want of sensibility throughout the intestinal tract, and consequently the constipation is not apt to inconvenience the patient, hence it is apt to go on getting worse until the attention is called to it by the flatus accumulating in the upper part of the intestines. Where the faeces require artificial means for their removal, this remedy should be thought of, though Selenium, Alumina, Plumbum or Bryonia may be used in this condition. Diminished secretions are also characteristic of Opium , so that dryness intestinal inactivity, is one of the causes of constipation of old people; the patient is drowsy and dizzy.

#Plumbum [Plumb]
As we have already seen, with Plumbum there is some intestinal action; in fact, at times there is considerable. Lead colic is one of the effects of the drug. So we have urging to stool, and accompanying this urging is a colic with a marked retraction of the abdominal walls. The stool is passed with the greatest difficulty and consists of little round balls, which are black, dry and hard, and there is accompanying, a marked spasm of the sphincter ani which is apt to be painful. The anus feels as if drawn upward. With this drug there is loss of muscular activity and diminished secretion of intestinal glands. Thus we see that the indications for Plumbum in constipation are concise and precise.

#Alumina [Alum]
Chief among remedies for constipation due to dryness of the intestinal tract stands Alumina. There is diminished peristaltic movement and complete inertia of the rectum, so that we have the symptom, soft stool expelled with difficulty, explained. There is little or no urging to stool. The stools may be hard and knotty like sheep dung, or may be soft. It is one of our most useful remedies in constipation of children where the rectum is dry, inflamed and bleeding about the orifice. Alumina differs from Bryonia chiefly in the state of rectal inactivity. A dry mouth and an irritated looking tongue may lead to the selection of Alumina. There is much straining with the remedy and the stool is passed in very small quantities , piecemeal, so to speak. If the characteristics of Alumina are prominent in a given case, they may be due to the use of aluminum ware in cooking. Even Spring water boiled in an aluminum pot will deposit a white sediment on cooling.

#Bryonia [Bry]
The large-hard-dry-stool-as-if-burnt of Bryonia is familiar to all of our Medical School. The constipation of the drug is due to dryness and there is no urging. Alumina is similar; its constipation is also due to dryness, but it has such complete inactivity of the rectum that even a soft stool is expelled with difficulty. With Bryonia the stools are passed with a great deal of difficulty, owing to an atony of the intestines similar to Veratrum album and Opium. Nux, as we have seen, produces and cures constipation due to fitful, irregular, peristaltic action. Bryonia cures constipation where not only the intestinal secretions are diminished, but the muscular action as well. Constipation in young children, according to Hughes, is frequently cured by Bryonia 30th. It is said to act better in rheumatic subjects and in summer. The mental condition of irritability and ill-humor will often be present as a concomitant of the Bryonia constipation. Older writers alternated Bryonia and Nux vomica with success in very obstinate cases.

#Natrum muriaticum [Nat-m]
All the muriates have crumbly stools, and so we find that the characteristic constipated stool of Natrum muriaticum is a hard and crumbly one; the rectum is dry, the stool is hard to expel and causes bleeding, smarting and soreness in the rectum. There is ineffectual urging to stool,with stitches in the rectum. It sometimes comes in the most obstinate cases, which are accompanied by hypochondriasis. Magnesia muriatica, another of the muriates, has characteristically a constipation in which the stools are passed with great difficulty, being composed of hard lumps like sheep dung, which are so dry that they crumble as they pass the anus. Ammonium muriaticum has this same symptom of dry and crumbly stools, they may also be coated externally with mucus. In constipation of young people who are subjected to acne and comedos, Natrum muriaticum should be thought of.

#Lycopodium [Lyc]
Like Nux, Lycopodium has a sensation after stool as if something remained behind. Constipation, due to constriction of the rectum, calls for this remedy, and here it reminds one of Silicea. The constipation , too, is apt to be associated with the stool. The stools are dry and hard, or the first part hard, the last soft. In the constipation of children and pregnant women it often finds a place, and it is here praised by Hartmann. A great deal of rumbling in the abdomen following the stool is an additional indication. Nux and Lycopodium may be easily distinguished , though each has ineffectual urging to stool. In Nux, as ,we have seen, this is due to irregular peristaltic action, while with Lycopodium it is due to a constriction of the rectum. The mental symptoms here, too, are of the utmost importance; the depression, the melancholy and the apprehension are characteristic.

#Graphites [Graph]
Graphites is one of our best remedies in constipation, if Homoeopathy can be said to have "best remedies". With this drug there is no urging. The patient sometimes goes days without a stool, and when it does come it is composed of little round balls, knotted together with shreds of mucus and accompanied with great pain when passing, owing to the fissure. These fissures, as well as the haemorrhoids which accompany them, burn, smart and itch intolerably. Excessive soreness of the anus in making the post defecation toilet is an indication for its use. Three or four remedies are usually to be thought of in this condition of fissure of the anus; they are: Silicea, Nitric acid, Paeonia and Ratanhia; these, with Graphites, will remove in most cases the underlying disease leading to the fissure. Aching of the anus after stool is also characteristic of Graphites, and sometimes we have with the drug ineffectual urging. The mucus-coated stool, the extreme soreness of the anus, the general Graphites temperament of sadness and obesity, will easily decide for the remedy. Graphites suits especially women who suffer from a neglect to attend promptly to nature’s call.

#Platina [Plat]
With Platina, there is torpor of the whole intestinal tract, unsuccessful urging to stool and great dryness of the rectum. The stools seem to adhere to the rectum like glue or putty. There is great weakness in the abdomen and a sensation as if there were a load in the rectum which could not be expelled. It is considered a remedy for the constipation of emigrants and travelers, so it would seem to find an additional indication where the trouble was brought on by change in manner of living. It is also a remedy for the constipation due to lead poisoning. There is frequent urging, scanty, dry stool and great abdominal weakness. As under Ignatia, there are sharp stitches in the rectum.

#Silicea [Sil]
When constipation is due to inefficient expulsive force of the rectum and a spasmodic condition of the sphincter then Silicea is our remedy. With this condition we have a condition where the sphincter suddenly contracts and the partially expelled stool recedes. Causticum has constipation due to powerlessness of the rectum, so that the patient almost stands in order to enable him to get sufficient power to expel the stool, but the spasmodic condition of Silicea is absent. As with Graphites, Silicea has a great deal of soreness about the anus, also an oozing of moisture. There is urging to stool and a sensation as if faeces remained in the rectum.

#Veratrum album [Verat]
Though this remedy is ;one of our greatest diarrhoea remedies, it has a marked effect in the treatment of constipation. The symptoms calling for its use are as follows: There is complete atony of the intestines, as under Bryonia and Opium. The faeces accumulate in large masses in into a sweat; but finally has to give it up, and the faeces have to be removed by artificial means. There are extreme cases where the patient is able to force a passage for himself; the stools are large, hard and black. As with the diarrhoea there may be faintness after the stool. Dunham speaks of the constipation of Veratrum as one characterized by a disposition to stool in the upper part of the intestinal canal and an indisposition to stool in the lower part. Dr. Bryce claims that it will bring stool quickest of any medicine I ever tried." He used 3x. It comes in very well after Nux vomica, especially in constipation of children. Podophyllum 12th has proved of use in constipation of children. Of course, the above remedies will not cure every case of constipation, but they will, if studied closely, be found to correspond with the majority of cases. Phosphorus has a constipation of long slender stools voided with much straining.

Take the remedy which is similar to your symptoms. No side effects or complications if taken as directed, please do not exceed the given dosage and under any circumstances do not try to mix any remedies and avoid Chocolates, Mints, Coffee, Red Meat, Alcoholic and Carbonated drinks, Spicy Rich Food while taking any Homeopathic remedies, and keep the medicines away from direct sunlight, heat strong smells and perfumes and do not store them in the fridge.
Curing without any side effects or Complications Thats the Beauty of Homeopathic Medicine

Take Care and God Bless you.

My alternate ending to crossing jordan what do you think?

Posted by admin on Dec 31, 2009

Final Goodbye

It’s all in my head, literally

3 A.M. Monday

Restlessly, Jordan woke with the worst headache she had imagined.
It felt as though someone had just hit her in the head with something weighing 100 pounds.
God, what do I do? She thought. I can’t say anything not one word, besides they would pity me.
They were her morgue family, a group of people who had no one. They had each other.
I especially can’t tell Garret, he’s been through enough, she thought.
Desperate to sleep, Jordan swallowed an aspirin and went back to bed.

9 A.M. Monday
"What’d do we got anything, Garret?" Jordan asked impatiently as she fidgeted at her desk.
"Surprisingly, nothing. New record 24 hours, no bodies." said Garret.
Relentless, her hand started shaking on her desk.
Gradually, it was gaining speed and starting to pick up in intensity.
"Jordan, what’s going on? You’re hiding something I can sense it." Garret said.
"Huh? Oh, it’s really nothing I’m fidgeting just a bad habit, you know?" Jordan said.
"Really? Then stop." said Garret. Slowly, Jordan managed to stop the shaking
and answered the ringing cell phone.
"Cavanaugh." she answered punctually trying to sound professional.
"Jordan, I’ve got 2 db’s down here. Apparent suicide both had clinical depression.
Husband and wife married 23 years, husband had affair. I’m on 12th and main,
see yea when you get here." Woody said as he hung up.

Love and Suicide?

9:15 Monday

"Wow, that’s love killing each other together.
Literally, ’til death do us part…" Jordan said sarcastically.
"Yeah, talked to the neighbors they’d stay in for days, no outside contact."
Woody fired back.
"Kelly Johnson, the other women’s being interrogated as we speak.
CSU is testing her for gunshot residue, fingerprints and searching her place."
He finished.
"It’s a shame, you know being in their 50′s and depressed.
Wonder what about." Jordan said.
All we can do is wait and see she thought.

Monday 10 A.M.
Back at the morgue, Jordan decided to look through the couple’s
health records. Worried, Garret decided to check on her to see
how she was doing. Jordan showed him the records,
turning the monitor to show him.
Having more bouts of painful headaches,
Jordan rubbed her hand where it hurt hoping for some comfort.
"Jordan, you ok?." he asked. "Yeah, just an itch." she replied.
Quickly, she turned and hid her hand which shook violently.
Relizing, she was going to have a seizure Jordan mentally tried
to prepare herself.
As her eyes began to roll back in her head,
she slowly fell to the floor shaking violently everywhere.
"Jordan!" Garret shouted protectively. "Someone help!"

Post seizure

Patiently, Garret waited for Jordan to wake up from the seizure.
She opened her eyes, noticing Garret holding up four fingers.
"How many fingers?" he asked, his voice strained.
"Coffee." she answered sarcastically.
"Cat’s outta the bag, again.
Oh, Garret I’m sorry I should’ve told you."
she paused sobbing a little as pulled out her CAT scan.
Trying not to seem somewhat angry,
he hugged her for dear life.
"It’s back, what do you mean? Not possible,
not to you. You don’t deserve that!" he said.

"Garret, I’m dying they can’t do anything.
It’s around the Cortaid artery. Nothing else to do."
Jordan said. "Come on, you’re going home."

said Garret. "What so I can die alone?"
she said. "I’m goin’ with you." he said.
"Any last wishes?" he asked.
"I think I’ll write a goodbye letter when we get there.
I don’t think I’ve got much time, more violent seizures
increasing in frequency. Losing short term memory,
let’s go." said Jordan.

Waiting for the inevitable

"Garret, I want you to know…I’ve always loved you.
More than just a friend always." said Jordan.
"Me too, always." he replied.
Just as he and Jordan met for a long, romantic kiss.
"Jordan, no matter what I love you." Garret said.
"I love you, too." she answered back.

Back at the morgue, Nigel and Bug had cracked the case.
It turned out Kelly had wanted the husband all to herself.
This had resulted in not only murdering the wife,
but also the husband. "Revenge, sometimes deadly."
Nigel said. "Hey have you heard from Dr. Macy?"
asked Bug. "Nope, left 2 messages on the tele
no answer."

It had dawned on Jordan, these were her last, delicate moments on earth.
It was getting harder to breathe and her heart had slowed.
She told Garret again she loved him and she was sorry for not
telling him sooner. The surgery was hard, dying’s easy but
I’m not at all ready to leave yet, she thought.
She ordered Garret to open the letter when she was gone.
It would remind him she wanted to be buried by her mom.
And also what he meant to her.
"Garret, I’m scared I don’t wanna leave you.
I’m sorry we didn’t get together sooner."
she said. He held her tighter,
holding her like a newborn infant.
She couldn’t breathe any longer,
she said what she knew were her last words.
"I love you." and she was gone just like that.

Last Words

Back at the morgue, everyone had been wondering what going on.
Garret had gathered everyone in the conference room.
After saying what had happened he opened the letter.
Everyone quieted down to hear him read it.
He had tears as he was unfolding it.

Dear all,
If you are reading this I am finally gone where ever that is.
I’m sorry I didn’t tell you, always remember you’re
wonderful, caring people.
Woody, I’m sorry we didn’t work out, I hope you’ll forgive me.
You always tried to get closer, as I pushed you away.
I’m sorry I was afraid of love and trust.
If I could start life over, I would have laughed more,
loved more, trusted more.
Bug and Lily I hope you’ll stay together, I hope
little Madlyn will have a great life.
I regret not having children in my life.
Nigel, hope you find that special someone.
Maybe, someone as weird and strange as you.
Garret, I’m sorry I didn’t tell you how
I felt sooner. I hope things with Abby
work out some day.
Thank you for staying until the bitter end.
I know it is near and hope my sake my mom’s up there.
If I see Devan or Lu I will tell them good things about you all.
Please bury me at St. Ann’s preferably by my mother.
I love you all,


Everyone was at the cemetery, gathered around Jordan’s grave.
Garret said "We are here today to remember Jordan Cavanaugh.
We will have a moment silence to honor here starting now."
Everyone lit candles and held hands until the moment was over.
Garret handed out flowers of purple and pink, Jordan’s favorite colors.
Garret was the last to leave,
he whispered "You’re my bestest girlfriend."

thats sad…. a little too sad… of course i wanted her an woody to stay together…

BAN DHMO TODAY!! (Funny?)?

Posted by admin on Dec 31, 2009

Dihydrogen monoxide (DHMO) is colorless, odorless, tasteless, and sickens over 4 billion and kills over 2 million people every year (United Nations World Health Organization, 2008: www.WHO.Int). Most of these deaths are caused by accidental inhalation of DHMO, but the dangers of dihydrogen monoxide do not end there. Prolonged exposure to its solid form causes severe tissue damage. Symptoms of DHMO ingestion can include excessive sweating and urination, and possibly a bloated feeling, nausea, vomiting and body electrolyte imbalance. For those who have become dependent, DHMO withdrawal means certain death.

Dihydrogen monoxide:

* is also known as hydroxyl acid, and is the major component of acid rain.
* contributes to the "greenhouse effect."
* may cause severe burns.
* contributes to the erosion of our natural landscape.
* accelerates corrosion and rusting of many metals.
* may cause electrical failures and decreased effectiveness of automobile brakes.
* has been found in excised tumors of terminal cancer patients.
* contamination has been found in all floodwaters where death has occurred and violent thunderstorm rains containing destructive lightning.
* changing from crystalline to liquid is a leading cause of the destruction of arctic ice and glaciers.

Contamination Is Reaching Epidemic Proportions!
Quantities of dihydrogen monoxide have been found in almost every stream, lake, and reservoir in America today. But the pollution is global, and the contaminant has even been found in Antarctic ice. DHMO has caused millions of dollars of property damage in the midwest, and recently California. DHMO contamination is even found in most cells in the human body!

Despite the danger, dihydrogen monoxide is often used:

* as an industrial solvent and coolant.
* in nuclear power plants.
* in the production of styrofoam.
* as a fire retardant.
* in many forms of cruel animal research.
* in the distribution of pesticides. Even after washing, produce remains contaminated by this chemical.
* as an additive in certain "junk-foods" and other food products.
* to dissolve medicines before giving them to children and older adults.

Companies dump waste DHMO into rivers and the ocean, and nothing can be done to stop them because this practice is still legal. The impact on wildlife is extreme, and we cannot afford to ignore it any longer!
The Horror Must Be Stopped!
The American government has refused to ban the production, distribution, or use of this damaging chemical due to its "importance to the economic health of this nation." In fact, the Navy and other military organizations are conducting experiments with DHMO, and designing multi-billion dollar devices to control and utilize it during warfare situations. Hundreds of military research facilities receive millions of tons of pure DHMO through a highly sophisticated underground distribution network daily. Many facilities store large quantities for later use. Many municipalities also have DHMO storage facilities.

Could somebody give me a good online store for CHEAP Natural food, medicines, herbals etc.?

Posted by admin on Dec 27, 2009

I really need some good sources. So many places online are even more expensive than the Whole Foods chain.

I’m looking for a lot of raw foods like cashews, cocao beans, goji berries etc. But any cheap or inexpensive online store with "natural stuff" would be great as well.

Thanks so much.

Hi Chris,

I think Jaffe Bros. is the best organic online store for everything in bulk or wholesale and their quality is tip top. But you might find them a bit pricey. So you could also try nutsonline. They’re good, much cheaper and natural but natural does not mean organic.

Hope this helps.

Any Health and Nutrition people out there?

Posted by admin on Dec 27, 2009

I know juice is good for your brain and tea is good for your heart but if you mix the two do you get the best of both worlds or does it change them chemically into something harmful? Also is it good for a person to mix fruit juice and milk?

I wouldn’t see anything wrong with mixing milk and juice (other than the taste). If you made it into a smoothie with some fresh fruits as opposed to mixing straight juice and milk it would be tasty and have greater health benefits. I have never heard of someone having an adverse reaction to mixing tea and juice, but for flavor and added health benefits, I might suggest adding almond milk (extra dose of protein) or lemon (packed with antioxidants and vitamin C) to your tea.

How to find someone’s AGI?

Posted by admin on Dec 27, 2009

So, my ex and I are divorced and have joint custody. We alternate custody on a weekly basis and the division of time that our boys spend with each of us is about equal. I, however, have paid ALL of the health care expenses this year although it was in our custody agreement that we were to BOTH carry the insurance/debts. It is not stated in our divorce decree who is allowed to take the deductions and, to date, we have been claiming one child each. According to the IRS publications, it does not appear that my responsibility for the financial burden will have any bearing on my being able to claim both boys on my taxes and the the parent who is allowed to claim them is the one with the highest adjusted gross income (AGI.) ???? Just want to make sure I’m understanding this correctly . . . if so, how do I go about obtaining his AGI so that I don’t make a huge mistake by filing and then owing the IRS?

And, no, we don’t talk, otherwise, I’d just ask him.

General rule: The parent who has possession of the body the most time gets the exemption. The other parent has the burden of proof. The divorce decree means nothing. IRS doesn’t care about it because it doesn’t prove what actually happens.

natural remedies for a dry cough?

Posted by admin on Dec 27, 2009

I have a had a slight sore throat off and on for about a month and in the past 2 or 3 days ive had a slight dry cough. i would cough maybe 3 times a day, today it is at its worst. It is VERY annoying and sometimes hurts a little. I have no health insurance and I am pretty much flat broke I am all bout natural healing I dont like taking medication if i dont have to. does anyone have suggestions? i have been drinking lemon tea with honey but it doesnt help much the irritation is in my upper resp. it isnt an infection i have no mucus at all.

thanks in advance! :D
so i slept with my mouth closed and slept very well, i had tea with honey right before bed. as soon as i get up im having what feels like a cough attack! i have some mucus in my chest (very little) and a even less in my nose. no fever still and my body doesnt hurt but it feels very tired. Thanks for the great tips everyone!

Any natural tea that you enjoy laced with honey. I like an elderberry-echinacea tea with orange blossom honey made extra strong. You boil the water, pour it over two tea bags in a large mug and cover. Let it sit for at least 15 minutes before you remove the bags and squeeze every last drop out. Sweeten to taste with honey and drink just before bedtime.

I get a dry throat when the room is dry. A humidifier is nice, but sitting in your bathroom after a hot shower for a half an hour is great. Make sure you aren’t sleeping with your mouth open and there aren’t any drafts that hit your face directly.

Do you know of any natural/herbal remedies for anxiety?

Posted by admin on Dec 23, 2009

I was prescribed Effexor XR 75mg and took the product for six months. The medicine did control my anxiety, however it caused me to have no energy and gain forty pounds. So if anyone has tried a natural product please share the details with me!

Try over-the-counter Sam-E. Be careful if you are on the pill while using it – i think it has St. Johns Wort in it which can interact with the pill making it ineffective. Also, try some yoga – worked wonders for me
