Are there any natural remedies for anal fissures that are proven to work? I applied vaseline and stopped nitroglycerin. Aloe vera plant, coconut, etc?

Are there any substitute herbal medication for hypertension?

Are there any substitute herbal medication for hypertension?

Not really: Most herbals are mild versions of the perscription treatment. Herbals are not regulated. Contrary to common beliefs herbals do have side effects and can interact with other meds. Make sure you tell your doctor if your on an herbal. I know it sounds better to most of us to be on an herbal rather than a perscription but would you eat mold for your strep throat or use penicillin? ...Read more

None: There are no established herbal remedies for adhd. Those that are on the market are largely untested for both safety and efficacy. Most contain some sort of stimulant, typically caffeine, along with other unspecified ingredients. Caffeine may help, but it tends to be short acting. This is a disorder for which we have lots of effective and safe treatments that are well studied. ...Read more

I would like to know about herbal medication for gingivities.?

So would I: There is NO scientific proof that pills, potions, ointments, emoluents, poltices, rubs, or snake oil are effective at treating gingivitis.

How can I get rid of my gynecomastia taking any herbal medication?

How can I get rid of my gynecomastia taking any herbal medication?

No.: I have found that gynecomastia, if persistent, is often best treated with partial excision of the prominent glandular tissue as well as liposuction surgery of the peripheral chest area. If the prominence of the chest wall is caused by adipose tissue, then liposculpture surgery alone may suffice. For patients with excess skin, common after weight loss, skin excision may also be necesary. ...Read more

Is it safe to take kalms with zolift? Kalms is a anti stress herbal medication with velerian, hopps.?

Kalms + Zoloft (sertraline)?: Your "kalms" product does not even list the ingredients on it own web site. I had to check amazon. Com to find them. Valerian can theoretically inhibit the metabolism of zoloft (sertraline) if you take more than 1000 mg/day of valerian, and each tablet contains 45 mg valerian extract. I have no idea what parts of the plants they're using, etc. Bad label info, so I would stay away even if not on zoloft (sertraline). ...Read more

Herbal medication to take for sever sinusitis, headache pain that seems to be giving me teeth pain now. As well. Is that possible.?

Yes: If you have a severe sinus infection, that is not something to mess around with. As the pain increases there is a good chance you are also clenching your teeth more.
I have seen many patients who thought they had a sinus infection and it turned out to be severe clenching pain. Unless you are improving rapidly, I would visit your md. If your teeth pain intensifies, see a tmj/bite dentist. ...Read more

16mo old son has diarrhea 4 the last 2 days and has caused a terrible rash. Prev medication ointment not working. Aloe & vaseline & powder not fixing?

Zind oxide: Irritative rashes from diarrhea in toddlers ae amongst the most stubborn rashes to cure. Try and get some daily air into that area - let him run around diaperless outside - who cares if he poops or pees on the lawn? Then, a diaper cream that has zinc oxide may be more useful - some brand names: triple paste, butt paste, desitin, (zinc oxide diaper cream) or generic zinc oxide. ...Read more

The vagina has the ability to maintain its own health quite well. If u r ill and treated with antibiotics etc. Probiotics/yogurt may help maintain its health. Otherwise, do nothing beside hygiene.

Here is...: What I would said may not be what you like to here. But as a professional, I still state: it's rare to have ed as described in someone of 21; in fact, overindulgence and obsession in sex have bothered many youngsters' life. Remember: sex is a process of very heavy mental and physical drainage and requires a period of resting for replenishing the energy and ability.

So, try sex less often and... ...Read more
