Bach Flower Remedies For Fluid Retention
Not Bach: Probably classical homeopathy would be more helpful with restless leg syndrome than bach flower remedies. I suggest consulting a homeopathic physician in your area. The american institute of homeopathy is a group of physician homeopaths, and is older than the ama. The site has a search function, through which you can find homeopaths in your locale: http://www.Homeopathyusa.Org/. ...Read more

I'm taking Temazepam for insomnia. Is it safe to also drink a herbal tea containing Passion Flower, Chamomile, Lemon Balm & Linden Flowers beforehand?
Can i drink yogi honey lavender stress relief tea that contains chamomile,lemon balm ,and lavender with 1mg of ativan tonight?
Yes: That tea will have benefits in terms of helping you to relax, and, of course, the Ativan will also help you to relax. Both the tea and Ativan may make you sleepy so you'll be more sleepy and relaxed if you take the tea and Ativan together than Ativan alone, but it is safe to take both. But maybe if you take the tea you could get by with 0.5 mg of Ativan. The tea is healthier for you than Ativan. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I take a sleep aid at night. Valerian root, lemon balm, l-theanine, hops, chamomile, passion flower & melatonin. Do any of these thin my blood?
Someone bought me tea made w/ lavender flowers, lemon balm, & feverfew. Advertised as headache relief tea. Is it safe to use & if so how often?
Safe but: Whether it works or not is another question. As for the dose, there is no scientific study on this especially given that the potency of the active ingredient(s) among different batches of the plants are not known and have not been standardized. Having said that, most people should be able to tolerate up to 4 cups of herbal tea daily as a rule of thumb- again just my personal opinion. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

L-Arginine, Vitamin K2, Gotu Kola, butchers broom, parsley, cayenne pepper, ginger root, etc. I have Raynaud's Syndrome.
Raynaud's Syndrome: Please do what your doc says but consider a natural approach. Neo 40 is a beet root product to help circulation and has some research suggesting usefulness in Raynaud's. The pain may also be from neuropathy and sublingual vitamin B12 can be used to help w/that. See your doc or a nutritionist. Peace and good health. Beet root better than l-arginine. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

A naturalist told me that drinking 3-5 cups of chamomile tea can cause labor contractions. Is this true?
Chamomile: Chamomile can stimulate uterine smooth muscle -- not good in pre-term pregnancy. It increases blood flow in the pelvic and uterine area --it's an emmenogogue which can also induce menstruation. Historically it was also used as an abortifacient. All these are reasons why chamomile isn't recommended in pregnancy, even though many women have safely used it. http://tinyurl.com/px7ymna. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I take 4 drops of Bach flower extract a Day,not diluted. can it cause chronic mouth irritation on old tongue scars?
The Bach flower: remedies contain at least 27% grape based brandy and therefore at least some non diluted alcohol. This alone could result in chronic mouth irritation. In addition it would not be surprising that some of the multiple flower extracts themselves are allergenic and cause irritation. Try discontinuing the ingestion for three weeks and see if your mouth improves. If it does, you have your answer. ...Read more
