herbs treatment

Postby angie_b » Sun Oct 17, 2010 7:58 pm

Hey:)
I'm 25 years ols, and I had foot limphedema for about 10 months. All the time looking for informaions and treatment. In July I've got herbs from Austria. I was drinking it twice a day
and after two weeks I saw a big difference. I know it may sounds silly, couse it would be too simple, but it's already 1 month that my foot is so much better. I still keep drinking this herbs. I think that even if it's just
a little chance that those herbes actually helped me, it's worth to try :)
I give you latin and austrian names here ( when I had finished them, I bought it all in herb's shop in separate bags and mixed)
- Hba. Millefoli / Schafgarbenkraut
- Hba. Origani / Oregano
- Hba. Cardui mariae / Mariendistelkraut
- Hba. Meliloti / Steinklee
- Fr. Juniperi / Wacholderbeere
- Fl. Verbasci / Konigskerzenblute
- Fol. Rubi idaeae / Himbeerblat
- Fol. Rubi frutic / Brumbeerblat

I really hope it's what helped me and that it can help you as well. Let me know what you think about it.
Take care,
Ania

If you need more information about my case let me know. I made as well detox with herbs, spirulina and fresh vegetable juice.

Hi Angie

I'm glad that the herbs seem to help you, but everyone, please understand that there is absolutely no clinical evidence to substantiate that herbs work on lymphedema. Many studies have been done and thus far, no herb has passed the test.

Also, sometimes those herbs can be dangerous and/or contradictory to medications you may be taking.

I very much discourage this as a waste of money and as potentially dangerous. Readers should not try these herbs.

Also, the claim we need "detox" supplements is yet another untrue and a sham. Again, there isn't any clinical evidence to support this.

If you eat a healthy diet, get proper rest and exercise, you body is designed to self detox.

Just curious too, since you make this stuff, is it possible there is a potential financial gain for you by posting this?

In responce to:
"Just curious too, since you make this stuff, is it possible there is a potential financial gain for you by posting this?"

I do not earn any money on posting this, I would never earn any money on people's harm. Lymphedema was my big problem and no doctor could helpe me.It took time from me, my family and friends to find help like this. The cost of herbs is low. And everyone who is interesting in this can check it by itself in a good source.
Take care,
Angie

Thanks Angie, I appreciate your response.

I didn't mean to come across so harshly, but I still think we should stay away from the herbs.

BTW, there actually is a nutrient that has shown the potential to help. That is something called fiboflavonoids.

I usually don't send people to the Wiki encyclopedia, but did this article interesting.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flavonoid

BTW:

http://www.drugs.com/mtm/bioflavonoids.html

The results are preliminary and even the LE doctors who recommend lymphers use them say that further research really needs to be done to prove or disprove how helpful they are.

I try to include a lot of the foods (fruits, veggies) that contain them.
