Sometimes when I am feeling truly sleep deprived I will pop a melatonin pill. It helps one's biorhythms realign naturally so the body shuts down enough to be sleepy, not just tired. To learn more about the proper dosing of melatonin read here.
What is Uva-Ursi for?
Then while at my son's and his girl's place I noticed Mari had brought some herbs along with her. She had some uva-ursi, which is an herb I had planned on researching anyway so I stopped putting it off and started in on it. I posted what I found on Chan's new writing site "The Good and Bad on Uva-Ursi" I opened book after book reading all these wonderful attributes of this particular herb and then I stumbled across three books that offered warnings. I love learning about natural remedies but feel the more I learn the more I need to learn. There is no truth in the old saying "What you don't know can't hurt you"! It certainly can.
My two questions are:
1) When you hear about a new supplement or herb do you rush right out and buy it and start taking it or do you research it first? Please tell me you research first. :-)
2) What do you consider the best find you have found as far as supplements or herbs? I have so many that have helped me but if I had to choose it would be turmeric. Turmeric completely removed all of my arthritis pain and I can move freely without a problem.
Thanks so much for visiting me today. Please check Amanda out and join the lively conversation @ Thursday's Two Questions. Take care and God bless!
