See a neurologist: You can try the tea, but track whether it worsens or improves your headache by keeping a daily headache log (timing, severity, duration, frequency, characteristics). Take the log to a neurologist. There are both over the counter and prescription remedies that might be suggested to you by a neurologist. http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/migraine.html ...Read more

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 more

Can plexus slim be taken w seaweed nazacort echinachea opc grapeseed garlic Lipitor (atorvastatin) ginger omeprazole fish oil acetyllcartinine & glucosaminecondroit?

Probably: One of the problems with many supplements is that there is little research on safety and effectiveness. Plexus slim has many ingredients; I have reviewed them ; they are all safe and have no known interactions with the things you are taking.

There : There is no evidence that any of these supplements can stimulate ovulation. There are no studies that demonstrate that these will help. Most women who go off depo do start ovulating in the next few months. Try staying in bed for 15 minutes after intercourse with your knees up, and be sure you have optimal nutrition. If you don't get pregnant in the next several months then consulting a gynecologist would be reasonable. ...Read more
