Natural Remedies To Help Pre Menstrual Tension

Herbs, Homeopathy and Vitamins  For PMT

Pre-Menstrual Tension: Many women suffer from pre-menstrual tension.  According to Russell Setright, who wrote the “Get Well” book in 1990, 70% of women experience the symptoms which are related to pre-menstrual tension.

What Are The Symptoms of Pre Menstrual Tension? The typical symptoms are headache or migraine, mood swings,  anxiety, depression and fatigue.  Other  symptoms which you might experience before the period are: painful and swollen breasts, pain in the stomach, water retention, and cystitis.

Rule Number One: To prevent PMT, or pre-menstrual tension,  make your diet more alkaline.  This means eating more fresh vegetables and fruit, brown rice instead of bread, and eating less of wheat products, sugar and dairy foods.  Celery and alalfa and mung bean sprouts should form part of your daily diet, as these things are very alkaline.   Often, a gluten-free diet helps people with PMT.  Many people are sensitive to gluten in wheat flour and other products, and they do not realize it.  So experiment – do without bread, cake and pastries for a week, and avoid all products which may contain gluten and preservatives or chemicals of any kind.  This just could do the trick.

Supplements To Help Pre Menstrual Tension: For the emotional and mental symptoms, Vitamin B is helpful, especially B6 and B12. Another very helpful supplement is Evening Primrose Oil, which is  useful in calming the nerves, giving a good night’s sleep,  and in counteracting depression.  Evening Primrose Oil has been scientifically proven to alleviate the symptoms of Pre-Menstrual Tension.

Dandelion:  Blood Purifier and  Diuretic Herb: Most herbs  which encourage urine flow are useful in counteracting pre menstrual tension.  This is because toxins are expelled from the body through the urine.  Dandelion helps to remove  toxins, as well as excess water from your system:  If you get swollen legs, or swollen fingers, or a distended stomach before your period, then dandelion can help to reduce this fluid.  Dandelion is a great blood-purifier, which also has a beneficial effect on the liver:  It helps the liver to de-toxify, and  can help prevent gall-stones.  It is rich in many vitamins and minerals.   Dandelion is the herb which is most used in PMT.  Drink dandelion root coffee instead of that real coffee to help PMT.

Alfalfa Tea:  Alfalfa is a great detoxifier of the blood.  It is also highly alkaline which is healthful for the body.  A body which is too acidic can result in pre-menstrual tension.  You can drink up to five or six cups per day.  To make alfalfa tea, simply put a teaspoon of alfalfa seeds into a large cup, and pour on boiling water.  Let cool, to warm, then drink.  You can use the ‘grounds’ for a top-up before taking fresh seeds for another cup.  Again – drink less coffee, and more of the herbal teas such  alfalfa and dandelion root coffee to help pre menstrual tension.

Liquorice, or Licorice, is recommended by Russell Setright:  His dosage is 500mg per day, taken 5 days before the period. Liquorice can help soothe the nerves and detoxify the liver and intestines. However, in my experience,, while I just love liquorice, it has a tendency to lower the blood pressure.  If you are like me, and you have LOW blood pressure anyway, then too much liquorice will further lower your blood pressure, and this can make you feel terrible, and your depression worse.  So go easy on the Liquorice.

It is best to begin taking your supplements seven days prior to the period:  These will help stabilize your system, and aid it in its  natural production of  hormones.  Aldosterone is a hormone which is is linked to the menstrual cycle, and this is secreted seven days prior to the period.

It is best to avoid drinking coffee for AT LEAST  three days prior to the period.  Coffee depletes Vitamin B and other nutrients from the body, so it is good to limit your coffee drinking while you are suffering PMT.

Toxins in the body and the blood are usually the reasons that people get PMT.  Some chemicals which are used as preservatives, and herbicides and pesticides – even plastics – get into our blood-streams and cause havoc with our hormones. It is helpful to many sufferers  of PMT to fast on just fruit and vegetables for three days prior to the period.  This helps to reduce toxins in the body:  Being free of these toxins can have a remarkable effect in the curing of  pre menstrual tension.

Homeopathic Remedies which might be useful for pre-mensrual tension are:  Aconite, Bryonia, Chamomilla, Coffea, Nat. mur, Pulsatilla,  Sepia.  Of course, unless you know your remedies well, you should seek some advice from a health professional who understands Homeopathy.

I would recommend Homeopathic Remedy Coffea if you are especially irritable and cannot sleep, or if  you drink too much coffee.  In Homeopathy, the remedy Coffea comes from Coffee, but it actually has the opposite effect to coffee, in that it is a mild sedative.  Homeopathic Coffea can be helpful in reducing the desire to drink coffee.

One Homeopathic remedy which I have found to be useful in helping to dry up excess fluid in the body is Homeopathic Bryonia.  This can help depression and morbid thoughts too.  It is a useful remedy to have in the house for chest infections and phlegmatic illnesses, as it dries up fluid.   Worth a try if you think this might be suitable for you:  I would take the Bryonia a week before the period is due, and take it for only three days, three doses per day of just a few drops.  If you should feel worse, then stop taking the Bryonia.

Pulsatilla is a good one for PMT if you are excessively weepy and sad.  Again, I would take this about a week before the period, but you could try taking it as soon as you have the pre-menstrual symptoms.

Different remedies work for different people:  The professional Homeopath will take all your symptoms, and consider all sorts of things about you, your day, and your life before deciding on a remedy.  But there are some fairly standard remedies for some conditions which will generally work for most people.

Are There Any Natural Treatments For Aids?

Natural Treatments To Support Immune System:  Useful Herbs and Vitamin C

DSCO 1783

All herbs which help to strengthen the immune system are helpful in treating AIDS.  Viruses which attack the immune system often do not respond well to antibiotics and other medications, whereas they will respond to many natural treatments, such as garlic, and Vitamin C.

Garlic, allium sativum, and Echinacea all help to control viruses, but the most effective natural treatment of all in treating people afflicted with the AIDS virus has been proven to be Vitamin C.

But, unfortunately, Vitamin C is rarely offered to people in orthodox medicine, because Vitamin C has many opponents in the drug industry.

Dr Brighthope has said of Vitamin C:  “Its opponents are still trying to discredit one of nature’s most powerful healing substances.”….More about this further on……

Vitamin C is a proven anti-viral, anti-fungal and anti-biotic remedy which is extremely useful in treating the AIDS virus and other diseases.

Thomas E. Levy writes in his book ‘Curing the Incurable: Vitamin C, Infectious Diseases and Toxins’ that the AIDS and HIV infection are ‘preventable and reversible conditions’, and sites the research done by Cathcart in 1984 which show this.

Dr Levy states on page 95 of his book that Cathcart proved that Vitamin C  used on a regular basis can result in the complete suppression of all AIDS associated symptoms.

Dr Cathcart did his provings with Vitamin C which was administered by mouth.  The improvement was such that secondary infections usually associated with the disease were prevented.  This is a significant finding, because most AIDS patients die, not from the AIDS virus itself, but from secondary infections.

Dr Levy suggests that if Vitamin C were  to be taken intravenously, and  continued over a longer period of time, it might be possible for the AIDS virus to be properly cured.

Dr Ian Brighthope who is President of the Australasian College of Nutritional and Environmental Medicine at Melbourne is a Vitamin C specialist who has researched Vitamin C as a therapy for many so called ‘incurable’ diseases, including AIDS.

Dr Ian Brighthope  has written an article, which you can read on line, which attests to the fact that the medical authorities, pushed by the drug companies, are choosing to ignore Vitamin C as a powerful healing substance.

Dr Ian Brighthope and his colleague Dr Ian Denman wrote a letter to “Nature” magazine to correct some misleading and incorrect information which was published in “The Melbourne Age” on 4th August, 1998 on the use of antioxidants such as Vitamins E, A, and Vitamin C .

The “Melbourne Age’ had published an article entitled “Cancer Linked To Vitamins” which was written by a Dr David Harrison.  This doctor stated that ‘preliminary studies into the use of anti-oxidant vitamins E,A, and C had indicated it might make the disease worse”……and that “In two studies, they increased the risk of lung cancer and mortality.”  However, as Dr Brighthope and Dr Denman pointed out, this doctor who is an opponent of Vitamin C  declined to name the studies which he said had proven cancer was linked to vitamins.

So this statement by Dr David Harrison is simply not credible: This opponent of Vitamin C is obviously a pawn in the drug companies’ game to cheat people out of the right to the truth, and the right to alternative treatments. In effect, this is murder:

Many people are being deprived of the right to get well, and the right to live, simply because Vitamin C is being denied them as an alternative treatment to drug companies’ prescription medicines.  Dr Brighthope spoke on television late last year about this very sad reality:  He was interviewed on NZTV about people being denied Vitamin C therapy for Swine Flu in New Zealand and Australian hospitals.

Dr Brighthope stated that Vitamin C is a PROVEN remedy for Swine Flu, and said that it was wrong that hospitals were letting people die, rather than administer intravenous Vitamin C.  Why NOT administer Vitamin C, even at the last minute, when all other treatments had failed?

One family of a person suffering from Swine Flu  in New Zealand threatened to sue the hospital if they did not allow Vitamin C to be given.  So the hospital conceded, Vitamin C was given, and THAT person who had Swine Flu actually recovered.

The letter written to ‘Nature’  by Doctors Brighthope and Denman, was ignored by ‘Nature’ magazine, even though these two Doctors are specialists in the field of Vitamin C therapy and other alternatives.  They have  done the research, and had the experience,  to show that Vitamin C therapy really does  work.

Vitamin C Therapy for Infectious Diseases

Common Childhood Illnesses Can be Treated With Vitamin C

DSCO 1772

Measles, Mumps, Chicken Pox, Hepatitis, even Poliomyelitis, can all be treated effectively with Vitamin C therapy.  Even serious cases of Swine Flu have been cured through megadoses of Vitamin C having being given.  Read the post on how a Swine Flu victim had been given up to die by an Auckland hospital, but how he recovered because his family insisted he be given Vitamin C http://merrilynhope.com/vitamin-c-cures-swine-flu/

When you think about it, if life-threatening illnesses such as Swine Flu can be healed with Vitamin C, then just about any infectious disease can be, if enough of it is given.

Vitamin A is also a powerful healer in the case of infectious diseases.  Read about how UNICEF have been giving out Vitamin A to treat measles in Syria http://merrilynhope.com/unicef-gives-vitamin-a-for-measles-in-syria/

And of course, Homeopathic remedies are another stand-by in the case of infectious diseases.  See the list below for more information on using Homeopathy and other alternative therapies.

Practitioners of Natural Health have been fans of Vitamin C therapy for a long time.  But – so have many doctors, including  the  New Zealand doctor Eva Hill,  the early doctors,  Dr Max Gerson and Dr Zenner, Dr Ann Wigmore,   Dr Brighthope, and Dr Thomas E. Levy.  The last two doctors are modern-day doctors.  Dr Levy wrote a fairly recent book, in 2002, on the aspects of Healing with Vitamin C.  This book is called “Curing The Incurable:  Vitamin C, Infectious Diseases, and Toxins”. It is published by LivOn Books, Henderson, NV 89052, USA.

The post previous to this one has more information on Dr Ian Brighthope, who is the President of the Australasian College of Nutritional and Environmental Medicine, and also the work of Dr Levy.   Dr Brighthope has proved Vitamin C useful in treating many infectious diseases, and has successfully treated Swine Flu with Vitamin C injections.  He has written many articles and books about healing with Vitamin C, and you can see some of his writings on line.

List Of Common Childhood Illnesses and Vaccination Alternatives

Common Childhood Infectious Diseases

These listed childhood illnesses are common amongst children under the age of ten.  In fact, the earlier that children get these infectious diseases, the less likely they are to suffer complications and adverse side effects.  My mother always thought that it was best if we were exposed to these illnesses at an early age, and she made no effort to protect us against getting them, as we were never so sick if we had them young.  And, once you had the virus, your immune system was made strong naturally, through combatting the disease, and so we never had a recurrence.

The common childhood illnesses came just once.  We welcomed getting the common infections  such as Mumps, Chicken Pox and Measles as a child,  because if you escaped getting these diseases as a youngster, then you could expect to have an incredibly strong and debilitating dose of the disease if you got it when you were an adult.

Should I Vaccinate My Child Or Not? This is a serious question, and it should be carefully considered before charging ahead with vaccination.  One good alternative is Homeopathy.  Consult your Doctor, your Homeopath, your Ayurvedic medicine practitioner, or another health professional to help you decide.

These days, vaccinations, or immunisations,  have complicated things.  Children’s immune systems are weakened by having these innoculations, and immune systems become lazy  when they are repeatedly bombarded with vaccination bugs.  Also, having the vaccination does not necessarily mean that your child will be protected from the disease.  I have heard of many instances, where the child has had a severe infection straight after having the vaccination for it:  The vaccination actually brings on the condition in some people.

The List of Common Childhood Diseases is as Follows. I have listed some Homeopathic alternatives which are worth consideration in the treatment of these illnesses.  Homeopathy is a safe, more natural method  of combatting these illness than vaccination.  Homeopathic Treatment will not cause long-lasting damage to the immune system.

Chicken Pox:  This has red spots which turn to blisters.  The ‘pox’ begins on the trunk, like Scarlet Fever, and then spreads to the face and limbs.  Its incubation period is between 17-21 days after coming into contact with the virus.  Isolation is recommended for around two or three weeks after the onset of the infection, which is when you can expect the scabs to come off the sores, and the skin to heal.  The Chicken Pox is an itchy infection, and children should be discouraged from scratching themselves, as this will make things worse.

Diphtheria:  This is characterized by a sore throat, like Scarlet Fever.  It also has a coated tongue, like Scarlet Fever in its early development.  Bad breath, sickness and choking, and difficulty breathing are symptoms of Diphtheria.  Its incubation period is between 1-5 days after contact.  The isolation period recommended in the old household medical books is about 6 weeks.   Your doctor will advise you on this.

‘German’ Measles:  This is characterized initially by a cold in the nose with a sore throat.  After two days of these symptoms, an irregular rash appears over the body.  Swollen glands, sore neck, and conjunctivitis may be present.  The incubation period for German measles is anything between 2 to 4 weeks.  The isolation period for German Measles is given as  3 weeks in the old text books.  It is important to prevent expectant mothers from coming into contact with the German Measles, as it could have serious consequences.

‘English’ Measles: This type of Measles was more mild than the German variety.  It is characterized by  a rash which appears in small areas of pink patches, after about the 4th or 5th day of being exposed to the disease.   The pink patches grow gradually larger and spread over the body.   Other characteristics are a feverish cold with a runny nose, which usually develops after the rash has appeared.   The eyes become irritated and red.  Small white spots appear inside the mouth on the cheeks.  Isolation should be for about two weeks after the onset of Measles.

Mumps: This condition also affects the throat to begin with.  The throat is sore and there will be difficulty in chewing and swallowing, resulting in loss of appetite.   Other symptoms are likely to be:  Swollen neck glands, pain under the ear, and sore inner ear. The Incubation Period may be between two to four weeks after coming into contact with the disease.  A period of around 4 weeks isolation for Mumps is recommended

Scarlet Fever: Of course you should see your doctor.  But  Homeopathic Belladonna has been proven to be effective in preventing Scarlet Fever in times of an epidemic.  It can also help alleviate the symptoms, and quicken the recovery,  if your child should succumb to this disease.  This illness is characterized by a sore throat in the initial stages.  The tongue starts off white and furry, but changes to a bright red after a couple of days.   Temperature, fever, vomiting, pains in the stomach are symptoms of this disease.  The red rash, which appears within 24 hours of the onset of the disease,  appears first on the trunk of the body, then spreads to the limbs, and finally, to the face.  This rash is made up of tiny red spots.  The Incubation period is between 2 to 5 days.  Isolation is recommended for around 2 weeks after the rash first appears.

Whooping Cough:  This is another of the Childhood infectious diseases.  It often begins like flu,  with a head cold and running nose with the eyes red and streaming.  Loss of appetite and vomiting may accompany the condition   However, the condition is much more serious than simple flu.  Young children, and babies especially, can ‘go down’ very quickly with whooping cough. Babies can easily die of Whooping Cough, so it is important to have treatment handy, and to head for the doctor if you suspect Whooping Cough.   Whooping Cough can come on very suddenly, in the wee small hours of the night when most doctors surgeries are closed.   Your child suddenly finds it difficult to breathe, and makes a wheezing, whooping sound as he or she fights to breath in, and this frightens the life out of you. Of course, you MUST see a doctor, or another health professional such as a homeopathic doctor, or get to the hospital immediately.  But as soon as the alarm has been set off, and you realize that your child has whooping cough, then you can immediately start giving them Homeopathic Drosera. By the time you get to the hospital, you might find that the Drosera has already worked, and that there is no need for further medication. The disease often ends as quickly as it began, with Drosera.   I used the Homeopathic Remedy Drosera for these occasions, and it never failed me.  Drosera is one of those magic Prophylactic remedies for Whooping Cough, which means that it is a preventative of the disease.  Because it is a Prophylactic, you can give your child several doses of this, over several days, the minute that you realize there is a Whooping Cough epidemic around.  Taking Homeopathic Drosera as a preventative can mean that your children may avoid getting Whooping Cough in times of an epidemic.  Keep it in your medicine cupboard, to use in times of emergency, and for the periods when the Whooping Cough virus is going around the schools.

Alternatives To Vaccination In New Zealand

The Pressure Is On For Children To Be Vaccinated in New Zealand.

Vaccination in New Zealand should not become compulsory.

Recently, many children were banned from Oratia Primary School because they had not been vaccinated. Around a fifth of the school children have not have vaccinations, because their parents believe that vaccinations may be harmful. The fact that the children were not vaccinated was described as a ‘life-style choice’, which I think is a bit derogatory, since it implies that the parents might be lazy, or might be doing absolutely nothing to substitute the vaccine.  This is not the case, I am sure that you will find.  Many of these parents will be using the Homeopathic alternatives. Many  of these parents will have seriously examined the statistics on drug and vaccine use, and these statistics are not always convincing in the favour of vaccines and other medications.

These children at Oratia, who have not had vaccinations, have been forbidden to return to school until some time in July, which means they will have had around 6 weeks off school because of the school ruling.

Vaccination, called ‘Immunisation’, is something which really should be questioned. (Read merrilyn’s later posts – one entitled Vaccination Linked To Obesity New Study Suggests)

Personally, I  think that vaccination or immunisation of any kind seriously undermines the immune system, giving the individual a higher risk of chronic disease later in life.  I decided to avoid all innoculations, vaccines, and immunisations for my four children, because my eldest became suddenly very sick after being given the standard measles mumps whooping cough innoculations. He was also exposed to 245T, but that was at a later date, after the adverse reaction to the immunisation injection.  After having an injection at 3 months old, he experienced general swelling, eczema, digestive problems, and spent days, if not weeks, crying from the discomfort.  He became very restless at night.  By the time he seemed to have recovered, he was almost 6 months old – time for the second shot of vaccination.  The same problems occurred all over again.  After the second dose, at 6 months, I decided I would not be bullied any more into giving any of my children innoculations or vaccinations of any kind.  I would use Homeopathic medicine, and Vitamins and Minerals, and Colour Therapy, and Diet, to combat all ills instead.

Find Out About The Alternatives To Vaccination:  Homeopathy offers alternatives to vaccination. Personally, I found Homeopathic Remedies to be very effective in combatting childhood illnesses and infections.  I did not even use Tetanus shots for my children, as I discovered that there are several good remedies for Tetanus.  The remedy which I used instead of a Tetanus shot was homeopathic Ledum.  And I discovered several homeopathic remedies which were effective for Whooping cough: Sometimes we had Whooping Cough epidemics, and it was necessary to have some remedy to counteract this.  The Homeopathic remedy which I found most effective in preventing Whooping Cough was  Homeopathic Drosera.

I recommend people to read Susan K. Claridge’s book “Investigate Before You Vaccinate:  Making an informed decision about vaccination in New Zealand”. This well researched manual is by  Susan K. Claridge.  This book is published by “The Immunisation Awareness Society Inc.”, P.O. Box 56-048, Dominion Road, Auckland, New Zealand.

Vaccination is NOT Immunisation:  Just because you have had a vaccination for a disease, you are not necessarily going to be protected from succumbing to that disease.  Sometimes people get an exceptionally strong dose of the disease soon after they have had the ‘immunisation’, or vaccination shot.

Vaccinations Weaken Your Immunity:

Vaccinations, or ‘Immunisations’ may give you a higher risk of getting cancer, multiple sclerosis, parkinson’s disease, arthritis, and other serious chronic afflictions in later life.

Vaccinations May Cause Brain Damage In Some Cases: Many parents believe that their children have been brain damaged after having had vaccinations. Asperges Syndrome has presented itself in some children, after they have had vaccinations.  A leading doctor in America wrote papers on his findings in the 1990’s, which the Lancet, and other medical journals published.  However, just lately, there has been a big push by drug companies, and many doctors, for vaccinations to become accepted world wide.  And so a new study  which supports immunisation has been done, most likely by doctors working for the drug companies who want their drug and immunisation sales to increase, and this study has been published by the Lancet. This recent ‘research’  refutes the claims of the 1990’s  doctors who reported that immunisation was a danger to children’s health.

The Fact Is That If You Suppress The Common Infections, Such As Mumps, Measles, and Chicken Pox, Other Diseases Will Rise Up To Take Their Place.

Measles and Mumps Have a Purpose:

It is a natural course of events for children to succumb to the common infections such as measles and mumps and chicken pox when they are little.  My Mum always used to say that these infections were never as bad if a child caught them under the age of five., whereas after the age of five, the children were often quite sick.

Most children survive these illnesses without any complications or adverse effects, however, a few children do suffer complications because of measles, chicken pox or mumps.  But for most children, their immune systems became stronger through having these illnesses, and so their  strengthened immune systems are made strong enough to prevent them from ever having these illnesses again in the life.

Do not accept what the Drug Companies and Most Doctors Tell You Without Question: How many times have things been promoted by drug companies, given out willy nilly by doctors, only to have it revealed later that the product has been found to be harmful in some way?  At this stage, these harmful  drugs are removed from the market.  The same thing happens with chemicals.  Ivan Watkins Dow happily told us in New Zealand that there was no proof that 245T was harmful to people, and so they continued to make it here in New Zealand, and sold to farmers here,  even after the rest of the world had banned the stuff.

While there is money to be made from selling chemicals, drugs, including vaccination or innoculation material, you simply cannot believe that what the medical authorities tell us about immunisation.  So called research is being done every day by drug companies, in an attempt to sell their stuff to the world.  Drug companies would just love to have vaccination made compulsory all over the world, as this would mean huge riches for them.

I believe that the drive for Immunisation, for people to be vaccinated world-wide, is not so much because drug companies really believe that all illnesses will be eradicated by vaccination, but because they see the potential profit in having world-wide sales.

Immunisation is an easy thing to sell. Only, you cannot wipe out all illnesses through vaccination: By eradicating the common childhood infections, other, even worse conditions will  probably arise.  So  while people continue to believe that vaccination is the answer to illness, the drug companies will still have a ready market, because even if they succeed in making their vaccinations mandatory,  there will be plenty of cancer victims around for them to sell their cancer products to in the years to come.
