If so.. what and why...

This is a growing education for me.. I am starting to look at natural ways and remedies for different things. I am trying to educate myself. So I would be interested in picking all of your brains.. LOL

Right now. I have oil of oregano-- I use it for everything.. LOVE IT

I take vitamin d- a multivitamin... some vitamin C and omega 3


I want to learn more about herbs ( I know pooper) I am hoping this can be an educational thread

Pooper is the greatest! lol

Does anyone know anything about pain medication that is herbal?

I swear Im killing my liver a little everyday with Tylenol and Advil.. Its starting to bother me. I would love to go with something, that is not as hard on the liver.

depends on the pain:

For migraines I use cinnamon (when I have a headache) same idea as one of those migraine sticks. You make a paste with water and put it on your temples...cooling effect. If I find I am getting them more frequently, I take Niacin tablets. For me advil is a last resort.

I use only herbal, a pain control herb that has been used for centuries is "white willow bark". It can be purchased at herbal retailers or you can order and plant the trees and grow your own. It does grow here, I have found it near lakes and marsh lands.

General dosing guidelines for willow bark are as follows:

•Dried herb (used to make tea): boil 1 - 2 tsp of dried bark in 8 oz of water and simmer for 10 - 15 minutes; let steep for ½ hour; drink 3 - 4 cups daily.

•Powdered herb (available in capsules) or liquid: 60 - 240 mg of standardized salicin per day; talk to your doctor before taking a higher dose.

•Tincture (1:5, 30% alcohol): 4 - 6 mL three times per day.

Tinctures take six weeks to make but are the most effective method to extract herbal healing properties. Vinegar can also be used but the tinctures are...well vinegary.

For identification purposes...pic 1 is what to look for in the spring and pic 2 is when the leaves are mature. I am sure we have all seen them.
