I have a chronic dry cough for years. It is related to allergies, asthma and probably a prescription medication. I am treating it with several herbal tinctures but it does not quite go away. When I have to go out, some people freak out because they think I am sick with COVID19 (I am not). I am tempted to wear a sign that…
Best herbal treatment for dizziness?
I have been suffering from seasonal allergies for a few weeks. Now I am in day three of feeling dizzy; I also get temporary ringing in my ears now and then. My anti-histamine herbal treatment didn't work. As a beginning herbalist, I feel like I should be able to figure this out, but I have had no success yet. Help please.
What can I do to raise bone density?
I was diagnosed with osteopenia a decade ago and I’m afraid I’ve cracked a rib just leaning on a concrete block wall to work on the other side. I’m hesitant to even go get it x-rayed, not knowing what I might be exposed to and knowing that they can’t do anything to help it anyway but, if it was that easy to injure myself,…

Spring has arrived and so has aching muscles
As I transition from winter inactivity to spring feverish work outside (especially during this time of shelter-at-home) my poor aching muscles start to remind me yet again why it so important to find activities over winter to keep them in shape! What remedies do you use for aching muscles?
Dental Care - crown or no crown
I received my Equisetum Hyemale Powder today. I have been learning about natural dental care the past couple years. I have three amalgam fillings that I plan to get them removed after the lockdown is over. One of them is pretty big. Should I get a crown? If not, will my teeth heal? Any advice is appreciated.
