Do any of these natural remedies improve poor blood circulation? 
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 more

Is magnesium blend good to take with korean red ginseng? - Also are most products alright with korean red ginseng?

Is magnesium blend good to take with korean red ginseng?  - Also are most products alright with korean red ginseng?

Ginseng ..: I think it says everything that red ginseng is believed to BOTH increase and decrease the immune system. There are not reliable trials on it. It is not possible to really control what you are getting with it. Magnesium, however, is a mineral and unless they are totally lying, the content of it should be reliable and it can't stale. 200-400 mg/day is good. ...Read more

Fiji natural artesian water...Good or bad?

Fiji natural artesian water...Good or bad?

Neutral: Bottled water is convenient to carry around. But the health benefits are not exactly confirmed. In a number of cases, the municipal water is purer than the bottled water. And in some cases the bottled water contains arsenic and lead. There is no agency supervision of this and much bottled water is just tap water anyway. Fiji is not better or worse than the others. ...Read more

Is there any herb better than saw pal meta for treating frequent urinating. Joe montana advertises some new herb thats 100 times powerful?

See your doctor: There are many reasons for urinary frequency in a man of your age. The cause should be checked out so that you do the right thing for the problem. Maybe a natural product would be a good idea and maybe not because you don't know the cause. Keep in mind that joe is taking care of joe and joe's wallet, not you. You need to take care of you.

Hi there. Is vinyasa yoga more appropriate before after an intense cardio workout? (Wrestling, Mauy Thai, Jui Jitsu)

Hi there. Is vinyasa yoga more appropriate before after an intense cardio workout? (Wrestling, Mauy Thai, Jui Jitsu)

Warm up vs cool down: Active warm up is ideal prior to intense workouts. Depending upon how aggressive your yoga routine is, it might serve as warm up. With that said, cooling down is also a good idea after intense exercise too. Bottom line, there's no proof that any specific exercise routine is better than another for warm up or cool down, aside from general statements. ...Read more

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?

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 more

Don't do it!!!!!: Why take/do snuff in 1st place? You're trading one type of cancer risk for another. There's absolutely no health benefit to tobacco in any form, smokeless or otherwise. Just b/c it's natural doesn't make it good for you!
