I have had extremely bad wind but only when I eat, I've tried peppermint tea&tablets, charcoal, degas and nothing is helping. What could it be?
Digestion: You likely lack enzymes necessary to digest the food. I have no vested interest in this product but do recommend "digest extra" sold at the vitamin shoppe. It has all the enzymes your body needs for food breakdown and usually does the trick. ...Read more

My BP is usually 110/68 in the morning. The last week its been up to 130/80. been drinking ginger tea with peppermint tea the last week. Any thoughts?
Both numbers normal: Both 110/68 and 130/80 are normal blood pressure readings. Blood-pressure readings are dynamic, that is they change throughout the day. Many things can affect your blood pressure including medications (such as Adderall), anxiety, salt intake and amount of sleep. Ginger tea or peppermint tea are very unlikely to be affecting your blood pressure. ...Read more

Some, not all: Peppermint can decrease muscle spasm in bowel, so may help with cramping; carminative (helps passing gas).

Is it true that mint or peppermint water/tea is great for headaches? Taking butalb- acetamin - caff.
Not that I know.: First, identify what kind of headache you have and what may be underlying cause. Furthermore, your medication can lead to increased and more frequent headaches, "chronic daily headaches", and I would not suggest using this preparation in this day and age. See your doctor and work together, as better approaches are available. ...Read more
