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:

Passionflower(Passiflora Incarnata)-try a full Tablespoon of tincture or Strong tea a half hour before bed. Scullcap(Scutelaria Latiflora)-try a full Tablespoon of tincture or Strong tea a half hour before bed. Chamomile -try a full Tablespoon of tincture or Strong tea a half hour before bed.

If the problem is that you fall asleep without difficulty; but then you wake up throughout the night the following herbs can help: BaiZiRen(Biota Seeds) SuoZaoRen(Zysiphus Seeds) HeHuanPi(Albizia Bark)

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!

Passionflower(Passiflora Incarnata)-try a 1/2 Teaspoon of tincture or Strong tea if stressed out! . Scullcap(Scutelaria Latiflora)-try a 1/2 Teaspoon of tincture or Strong tea if stressed out! . Chamomile -try a 1/2 Teaspoon of tincture or Strong tea if stressed out! The following TCM herbs really help feel more relaxed:

BaiZiRen(Biota Seeds) SuoZaoRen(Zysiphus Seeds) HeHuanPi(Albizia Bark) ou can sip it all day as lemonade.


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)

Asian Ginseng – Medicinal Uses, Interactions, Side Effects, Dosage

Asian Ginseng

Asian, Chinese, Korean, or “true” ginseng are all common names for Panax ginseng, one of the world’s oldest known herbal medicines. The word Panax, of Greek derivation, means “all-cure” and gives rise to the word panacea. In Chinese, “ginseng” (schinseng) refers to the human-shaped figure of the root, which is believed to suggest powerful properties. White ginseng refers to the unprocessed dried root, while red ginseng refers to the steamed root, which is red or caramel colored.

Uses and Benefits:

Ginseng has been used for thousands of years in Asian countries to boost energy, relieve stress, improve concentration, and enhance physical and cognitive performance. It is claimed to be a general restorative, tonic, or adaptogen, which restores the body’s balance, enhances stamina, and increases resistance to stress and disease. Among many other claims, ginseng is also recommended as an aphrodisiac, for cardiovascular diseases, to prevent or treat cancers, and to prolong life. In traditional Chinese medicine, ginseng is used to restore the vital life force (qi or chi) in the body. Asian ginseng is considered more stimulating or heating (yang), while American ginseng is considered more calming or cooling (yin).


The triterpene saponins, commonly referred to as ginsenosides, are considered to be the main pharmacologic constituents of P. ginseng. At least 30 of these steroidal compounds have been described, based on their sugar side chains. The most abundant or important ginsenosides are Rg-1, Rg-2, Rb-1, Rb-2, Rc, Rd, and Rf. Like lipid-soluble steroid hormones,ginsenosides may insert into cell membranes and interact with membrane channels and proteins, or transverse the membrane to initiate genomic effects. In addition, polysaccharides, polyacetylenes, and other non-saponin constituents of P. ginseng have pharmacologic activity.

Hundreds of in vitro and animal studies, mostly from the Asian and Russian literature, have investigated the biochemical and pharmacologic activities of P. ginseng, and numerous properties have been described. For example, pharmacologic effects on the cardiovascular system (anti-ischemic, antiplatelet, vasodilatory), endocrine system (hypoglycemic, ACTH-stimulating), immune system (immunostimulatory, anti-inflammatory), and nervous system (CNS-stimulating and inhibiting) have been reported. Cytoprotective, cognitive, and anticarcinogenic activities are also alleged. Cytoprotective effects include resistance against ischemia, toxins, oxidation, and radiation.

Clinical Trials:

Fifty-seven randomized controlled trials (RCTs) were found in a systematic review of the worldwide clinical litera

Is Ginseng an Alternative Medicine for Cancer Patients?

Ginseng is a popular herbal supplement that has been used in Chinese medicine for centuries. In the west it has been used to increase energy and boost the immune system. Ginseng is made from the roots of several plant species including Asian and American ginseng. Modern medicine has found it difficult to discover the results of using ginseng. Studies are inconclusive and may be because of the wide variety of quality of the ginseng products. Chinese have touted the benefits of ginseng for various ailments and continue to use this herb regularly.

In a recent study from Vanderbilt University in Nashville, 1455 Chinese women treated for breast cancer were followed for six years. They found that women who had already been using ginseng were less likely to die of breast cancer. Those women who started taking ginseng after their cancer diagnosis reported they were able to be more active and they had a better emotional health during treatment. The women who were taking ginseng were using an American ginseng product or white ginseng root that was unprocessed. They also received regular cancer treatment such as surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy.

Although the benefits of ginseng have been difficult to prove, the 1065 women who survived breast cancer, sixty-three percent used ginseng after their diagnosis. It is difficult to assess if ginseng was responsible for these remarkable numbers because it is impossible to separate the effects of ginseng from other alternative medicines that some of the women used. Laboratory studies do show the ingredients of ginseng do slow down tumor cell growth.

Women who have breast cancer should talk to their doctor about any benefits that ginseng would give them. You should always consult your health care professional before adding any alternative medicine to your breast cancer treatment. The herb may also have side effect or could interact with other medications your doctor has prescribed. It is not recommended that you use ginseng instead of conventional cancer treatments. The findings of increased survival rate still need to be proved in more clinical studies.

Those who have benefited from ginseng as an addition to their cancer therapy strongly suggest that further clinical trials should be done. These studies will find out if ginseng used with conventional breast cancer treatment will increase the survival rate of breast cancer patients.

Ginseng does have an effect on the patient’s sense of well being, giving them a more positive attitude and a feeling of good emotional health. If you are already taking ginseng, it may be a benefit for you to continue to take the herb. If you are not taking it, consult with your doctor to see if it will benefit you. If you decide to take ginseng as a supplement to your cancer treatment, be sure your doctor is aware of all medications you are on. It may cause drug interactions that can do more harm than good from using ginseng. As with any new medicine or alternative treatment, always get all the information you can about new products or methods of treatments.
