Effective and Natural Herbal Cures for Insomnia, Depression, Anxiety, Hot Flashes, Morning Sickness, PMS, Low Sex Drive, and Menstrual Cramps
Natural Herbal Menstrual Cramps Cure
In this study, published in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine, 2/13/09, a comparison was made for treating Menstrual Cramps, between herbs and drugs. According to the study, the simple and common herb Ginger was as effective as the drugs mefenamic acid, and ibuprofen in relieving pain in women with menstrual cramps. An additional benefit of the Ginger herb was that it has no long term side effects.
Ginger Also Found Effective in Nausea and Vomiting due to Pregnancy
In this study, reported in the 2009 (15:243-6) issue of the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine, it turns out that the common herb Ginger was also discovered to be quite effective in decreasing nausea and vomiting during pregnancy.
In my practice, I have also found Ginger, in the form of Ginger Snaps and Ginger Ale to work great, especially when combined with acupuncture and the homeopathic remedy Ipecac 30C, for morning sickness, no matter how severe.
Virtually all my pregnant female patients have seen tremendous reduction in nausea during morning sickness using acupuncture, Ginger, Ipecac homeopathic and sometimes we use Chinese herbs too.
St. John’s Wort Effective on Hot Flashes and Quality of Life in Perimenopausal Women
In this study, published in the journal Menopause (2/3/09), it was concluded that the Common Herb St. John’s Wort will improve overall quality of life, including reducing hot flashes, in perimenopausal women.
I have found this to be quite true in my years of practice. But it is even more effective when you combine St John’s Wort herb with the amino acid 5-HTP, and the correct homeopathic remedy.
The Common Herb Vitex Agnus Castus (known as Chaste Berry) is Very Effective in Treatment of Severe Premenstrual Syndrome
In this study, published in the journal Maturitas (3/6/09), it was concluded that the common herb called Vitex agnus castus is a very safe, and effective herb to use in the treatment of severe PMS.
I have also found this to be true. In addition, I have found Vitex herb to be great forincreasing sex drive. For PMS, I also always add Omega 3,6, 9 combination oils and Vitamin B6 (P5P). If PMS is accompanied by headaches or cravings, then add acupuncture once per month, about a week before the period. Acupuncture for PMS has been credited with saving many marriages, according to many of my patients.

The study showed that homeopathic remedies were just as effective as Prozac type drugs in the treatment of Acute Depression.
In my practice, I”ve also found this to be true. I treat depression and anxiety in my patients, using homeopathy, Chinese herbs, amino acids and acupuncture. People feel consistently both more relaxed and energized, less depressed and less anxiety, and more able to effectively function in life, on their jobs, and in the family.
New System for Managing Sleep Disorders and Ordinary Insomnia found in NeuroSLP
The NeuroSLP Protocol is a major advance in the way healthcare practitioners approach sleep difficultiers. This system utilizes biochemistry and laboratory testing to pinpoint the imbalances causing the sleep problem.
In this way, we can target the weakness and imbalance. We check melatonin and 11 other biomarkers in our testing profile. Other hormones and neurotransmitters we measure include cortisol, GABA, and serotonin.
Eileen Wright, MD commented on this new system that that the “……therapies guided by this testing have changed the lives of many individuals in my practice.”
