Should you ever use oleander plant as a topical treatment ?

Should you ever use oleander plant as a topical treatment ?

I don't know much about herbal medicine but don't have good insurance. Are there any plant treatments for herniated disk?

Herbal Rx for HNP: While herbal treatments have not been shown to have any direct effect on herniated discs, time may be your best friend as many disc herniations can resorb and get smaller spontaneously and not need surgery, epidural steroids may be more beneficial for pain control. A short period of rest followed by therapy is always warranted. Surgery is indicated for progressive pain or neurologic deficits. ...Read more

I don't know much about herbal medicine but don't have good insurance. Are there any plant treatments for chronic liver disease?

Not known: There are definitely herbal medicines which may produce chronic liver disease and a variety of other problems. Otc substances are not controlled by the fda, and as such you have little guarantee of what they contain.

I don't know much about herbal medicine but don't have good insurance. Are there any plant treatments for low platelets?

I don't know much about herbal medicine but don't have good insurance. Are there any plant treatments for low platelets?

No plant treatment.: I don't know of any plant treatment. How bad is it? What is the cause of the low platelets? If the platelets are only a little low, maybe nothing need be done. Also, the cause needs to be determined. Is it due to liver disease, to h pylori, to an immune disorder, blood disease, other condition? Discuss with your doctor so you can get control over this condition. ...Read more
