@Random,

I suggest you take her to a doctor.

Herbally, for low degree pain in muscles, any one of these:

Black Cohosh, Devil's Claw, Wild Lettuce, Wild Yam, Wintergreen, Lavender, Parsley, Fenugreek seeds, Meadowsweet, German Chamomile, Valerian.

Regards.

Thanks. Yes, western medicine is on with daily injections and physiotherapy. But nothing has helped significantly.

So any of these to be ingested as is on a daily basis ? Would appreciate if you could mention quantity, dose and form of taking them. Thanks again!

I was doing some reading about parasites and ulcers they cause. Seems a lot of people praise basil and garlic along with pumpkin seeds and fiber (raw fruit/veggies). Was wondering your take.

Greetings,
Yes pumpkin seeds, garlic are anti parasitic. So also is black walnut, cloves, wormwood.

For ulcers, undeniably one of the best herbalist of the C20th, the American, Dr John Christopher prescribed as a cure, surprisingly... Red cayenne pepper, unadulterated or uncooked

Regards.

Ifa,

I looked through your list and didn't see heart burn caused by hereditary gerd. By chance do you happen to have any recommendations?

A loved one of mine suffers from it. He avoids spicy and / or acidic food, non smoker, and hates the prescribed stuff because it causes him head aches and bone density issues.
