What natural herbs can a woman use to regulate her periods?

What natural herbs can a woman use to regulate her periods?

I don't recommend: I'm skeptical any herbal product is a good choice. Some are harmless, many aren't. None are proven, tested, or regulated; the amounts and the ingredients can (and do) change often. Despite the popularity of so-called natural remedies, herbs, and supplements, you don't know what you are taking. If your period 'needs' regulating, finding the reason is easy and a better start than trial-and-error. ...Read more

Are there natural ways to prevent acne?

Are there natural ways to prevent acne?

No: Despite anecdotes and ads, no "holistic" remedy helps much. I start with topical Clindamycin with or without a retinoic acid derivative. If needed after a few weeks, consider adding an oral antibiotic such as Erythromycin or tetracycline / Minocycline as suitable for the individual. Dermatologists have the big guns -- accutane, lasers. Freedom from acne should be a person's right. Good luck. ...Read more
