  • Two Questions: (1) My legs swell at the ankles and feet at night (2) My girlfriend has trouble with losing clumps of hair

    The swelling of the ankles could be due to a number of things, therefore without knowing you, your body, etc. it is difficult to make an assessment – however, one indicator can be the kidneys. We would first recommend drinking plenty of water during the day to stimulate the kidneys to release excess water in the legs. The numbness could also be due to a number of other things with your body, but a broadscope approach would be trying Ginkgo and other members to help with circulation.

    With regards to your girlfriend's hair loss, it sounds as if she may be deficient on key minerals. A good place to start may be our blood and lymphatic and kidney and liver detox formulas. Another avenue to try would be hair skin and nails formulas which include Gotu Kola, Horsetail and Nettles leaf.

  • Can one toxify their liver and kidney by taking too many different herbs for various problems? And/or does this cause tinnitus? Is there an herb to get rid of tinnitus?

    The liver and kidney handle many nutrients and toxins that are acquired in our metabolism and help our bodies stay healthy. However, the crossover effect of using several different herbs and their synergies are not likely to have any negative impact on those organs. When the appropriate herbal threshold of synergies has been reached, the body has a natural ability to use only what it needs and will expel the extra toxins from our bodies.

    Tinnitus is a very generalized symptom and often serves as an important marker for other conditions and their causes. Tinnitus as a symptom is typically associated with noise induced, or age related hearing loss (in 85% of the cases), and would not be a result of any internal organ function such as the liver or kidney dysfunction. In any case, the guiding principle with tinnitus and its causes are a result of an increased blood flow through the ear, of which I have found Ginkgo to be very effective and safe in alleviating tinnitus. Keep in mind that this is only an herbal remedy solution and is not intended to treat, cure or prevent any disease.
