Home Remedy Herbal Guide

Herbal Remedies that you can take as a home remedy can make a tremendous difference in quality of life.

Obviously, the suggestions offered are never in the place of a qualified medical practitioner. With that in mind here is some interesting information about how herbs as home remedies can make life better.

Take energy for example. Herbs are very helpful for building stamina and endurance. Highly recommended is Siberian Gingseng, or Eleuthroccocus Senticosus. It’s not even in the (Asian)Ginseng Family. It gently but solidly boosts energy, without unwanted jitteriness. It was extensively researched in Russia. It was so successful that it was given to all Russian Cosmonauts,Olympic athletes, and even factory workers.

A standard tonic dose is what does the trick. 1 teaspoon 3 X Day of tincture. 2 large capsules of powder 3X Day. Eleuthrococcus usually comes in a fairly mild-tasting powder.

You can mix 1 teaspoon with water and gulp down a few times a day. By two weeks most people feel a definate improvement in basic energy level.

Other good energy herbs are the Chinese “CHI” or Vital Energy herbs. My favorite is Huang Qi(Astragalus Rt.). It boosts energy and also the Immune System. It’s my herb of choice for Thyroid sluggishness. Standard tonic dose is good.

While Chinese Or Korean Ginseng is a bit too heating for women experiencing hot flashes, American Ginseng(Panax Quinifolium),is often just right.

Spirulina is a Super Nutrient, that is SUPER energizing and nourishing to cells. Its a MicroAlgae that is higher protein than Meat! Take 3-4 500 mg. tablets daily and watch your energy soar! It’s also an Incredible Fluid and Blood Builder. Spirulina is helpful for practically Any menopause symptom.

Ashwaganda (Withania Somnifera) an Ayurvedic (Indian)herb is very energizing yet calming. It’s a highly regarded as an Aphrodisiac in India for women and men.

Insomnia Herbs offer real help to fall asleep. Good herbs to try before bed are:

They work excellent together, or even singly could really help, taken on a tonic basis;1 teaspoon 3X Day. Even taken before bed alone these herbs can help.


Helpful Herbs are : Motherwort(Leonrus CardiacusMotherwort(Leonrus Cardiacus)-1/2 teaspoon of Motherwort Tincture gives a fast moodlift. It does not induce sleepiness.

LemonBalm(Mellissa) seems to lift off the depression in no time!1/2- 1 teaspoon of the tincture is very effective. It actually has a pleasant taste, so the tea is Nice. The herbs suggested for sleeping are very calming. Just take less, because a small amount helps with tension. Too much puts you to sleep!

If you can’t concentrate try herbs. They really help. A great formula to try is:

Centella Asiatica(GotuKola) Ashwaganda(Withania Somnifera) Taken as a Tincture it really boosts concentration and Memory noticeably within a few weeks.


Occasional herbal relief of constipation can provide big relief. But, it should not be something that you MUST have to “go”.

Mild herbal help is Cascara Sagrada (Buckthorn), Rhubarb Rt. (or Turkey Rhubarb Rt.), Aloe Vera Juice is very good. For really bad occaisional constipation you can use Senna

Laxatives often cause cramping. Mixing your herbal laxatives with Powdered Ginger rt. stops the cramping. It’s also unbelievably effective for tummy aches and nausea.


Big relief can be obtained by mixing Golden Seal (Hydrastis Canadensis)Powder with AloeVera gel and applying locally after every bowel movement. Squirting some inside the rectum is possible with an applicator,or a small enema, really helps. Butcher’s Broom(Ruscus Aesculus) is an herb that brings quick relief to Vein pain. Hemmorhoids involve the inflamation and enlarging of veins in the rectum.

A good TCM Herb formula for Hemmorhoids is: TCM-“Damp Heat”Chronic Hemmorhoid Formula Equal parts of: HuangBai(Phellodendron) HuangLian(Coptis Rt.) DaHuang(Rheum) FuLing(Poria mushroom) MuDanPi(Moutan Bark)

Immune Boosters

Astragalus Rt., (Huang Qi-Chinese name) is a Powerful Immune Booster. It gives energy and endurance. You can take it daily to build up the Immune system. It’s ideal after getting over Viruses, or any illness. It builds up weakened metabolism.

I’ve used Astragalus Rt.with success for Hypothyroid(sluggish thyroid). Reishi Mushroom(LingZhi) boosts Your Immune system and energy level, as do Ginseng(Panax) and Siberian Ginseng(Eleuthrococus Senticosus)
