  • Questions on Passionflower, Chamomile, Saffron, L-Theanine & Lemon Balm to help deal with anxiety and low-mood.

    First I would explore for causes of anxiety and low mood to improve overall well-being, vital force and quality of life without dependence on even natural herbal formulas each day for long term use. Then specifically, for these questions:

    Do you feel like this is a good regimen for dealing with anxiety and low-mood?

    The herbs you are taking are good selections, however I would consider taking those in the evening perhaps one hour before you go to sleep where the body can benefit optimally. In the morning maybe a dose of St. John’s Wort along with a good adaptogen such as Ashwaghanda, Siberian Ginseng (Eleuthero) or Asian Ginseng can help with chronically moderate stress levels.

    Are each of these substances safe to take on a daily basis?

    I would say you should try to not rely on any herbal for long term use as they are meant to alter and improve current daily wellness so you can enjoy vital health without dependence. Multi-vitamins such as B Complex and Vitamin C may help as daily supplements for stress, however nutritional approaches are best to eat foods in season, fresh, eat variety of foods by rotation, appreciate simple foods, eat with your senses eat moderately and eat less rather than more and keep regular with your dietary inputs.

    With a history of Type 2 Diabetes in my family, do you feel that Cinsulin (a water-based extract of Cinnamon) would be a good option for me?

    Yes, Cinsulin is a unique extract of Cinnamon and should be a good herbal supplement to include for support of healthy blood sugar levels.

  • Is there an all-natural remedy I can take for nausea relief?

    I would recommend some type of peppermint tea or soothing tea that contains ginger for the nausea conditions. It may help to include some type of alkaline minerals such as Calcium Carbonate and Sodium Bicarbonate supplement if available at a health food store. Some soothing herbals could include Aloe Vera, Marshmallow and Barley. Try a relaxation tea occasionally that would have Chamomile or Licorice.

    Dietary recommendations:

    1. Eat smaller meals more often.
    2. Avoid fried or fatty foods.
    3. Limit intake of stimulants such as coffee, alcohol, cigarettes and carbonated beverages.

  • I just went to doctor this week and he told me that I have a lot of gas. Can you recommend me a herb to prevent this problem?

    It's difficult to provide a recommendation without knowing you, your health history, diet, etc. Without knowing what is causing the gas, we could only recommend basic herbal support products including activated bamboo, fennel, chamomile and peppermint.
