(Molds for suppositories are sometimes available from pharmaceutical supply houses.) When the suppositories have set, insert one at night, before bedtime, in the appropriate orifice. Keep in until morning. Wear a cloth pad in your underwear to avoid staining your clothing. Store the remaining suppositories in a cool, dry location."

"TINCTURES Tinctures are herbal extracts made with alcohol, vegetable glycerin, or vinegar instead of water. Tinctures are especially useful for extracting resins and oils from plant material, which water doesn't do very well. The liquid used to extract the herbs is known as the menstruum. The herbs being tinctured are known as the mark. Prepare the herbs by chopping or grinding them. Put them in a glass jar and cover with the menstruum of your choice, adding enough that there is an extra inch of liquid above the plant material. Store in a cool, dry location. Shake daily."

Jojoba Simmondsiaceae - Jojoba family Simmondsia chinensis Goatnut Description: Jojoba is a many-branched shrub reaching 3-6 feet in height. The ovoid leaves are entire, leathery, and arranged oppositely along the stems. They are Vt-2 inches long, grayish-green, and tend to yellow with age or stress.

"In times when modern coagulate pharmaceuticals were non-existent, various herbal preparations did (and still do) work to quell mild to moderate hemorrhaging. Today, the use of oil of Erigeron to staunch internal bleeding is considered antiquidated, but there is merit to the principle. Use oil of Erigeron internally to quell mild hemorrhaging from the lungs, particularly if severe coughing is a contributing factor. Likewise, if there is mild uterine bleeding after childbirth or blood in the urine from acute injury to the kidneys, the essential oil will prove useful."

"A healthier lifestyle, in terms of emotional health, diet, and exercise, can do as much to encourage healing as an herbal therapeutic. • Try to create formulas using a few herbs that cover several purposes. For example, ginger can warm a person who feels cold all the time, and it also will relieve his or her indigestion or rheumatism. • When you're developing formulas, make small batches the first time around. Label each batch with its ingredients, its intended use, and the date of its creation. You don't want to serve up something fantastic and not be able to recreate such a pleasure!"

"It would then be led to water, bathed and a short time after appear to suffer no ills from the experience - an herbal smelling-salt. The medicinal potency of Clematis can be largely rated by its causticness. It is in these acrid Buttercup family aromatics that Clematis musters its array of effects.

"The herb entered into Western herbal as a uterine tonic during 1873 when a document appeared in "American Medical Science."

"P. africana plus Urtica dioica. The doses of P. africana extract used in trials varied from 75mg to 200mg per day. The data were pooled using two methods: First, for summarizing trials with various outcome measures, treatment effect size for continuous variables was assessed by dividing the difference of the mean change for each outcome by the pooled standard deviation for that outcome. Second, effect size was estimated using the most clinically important outcome per study, according to the following preference scale: symptom score > nocturia > peak urine flow > residual urine volume."

"The Mayo Clinic, for instance, recently announced that they are decoding—using "sophisticated data mining techniques"—ancient, historical herbal texts to help develop potential new drugs for the future. Using nontraditional, ancient medical information taken from seventeenth-century texts, they have pinpointed certain herbal extracts to be "invaluable sources of healing agents."

"There are no side effects to herbal bitters. Any healthcare provider can prescribe these herbal medicines or they might be available at your local health food store.

"Adiantum caudatum are largely used as a substitute for Adiantum capillus-veneris, which is equated with Hamsapadi of Ayurvedic texts and Maidenhair fern of Western herbal. Properties will be discussed under Adiantum capillus-veneris Linn. After reviewing the literature of the West, it can be said that no fern has so far been used for promoting conception in women. This is a typical Indian application, based on indirect inference from the genitourinary healing properties of ferns. Caution Emetic in large doses. Mimosaceae Adenanthera pavonina Linn."

"The juice of leaves with black pepper (Piper nigrum) is prescribed by herbal practitioners. The active principle in aqueous leaf extract shows activity similar to insulin. (Suppl. WOI, 2000) Clinical and pharmacological trials of unripe fruit and root exhibit promising results. Aqueous and alcoholic extract of the leaves are reported to possess cardiotonic effect on amphibian and mammalian hearts. An alkaloid, aegeline, showed sympathomimetic property, and also produced stimulation of respiration and contraction in anaesthetised cats."

"While this is an admirable objective, it cannot be achieved overnight, given the complexities of the herbs themselves, the variety of formulas and prescribing methods available and the difficulties in adapting medical models to the herbal practice. Indeed there are many inside the medical establishment who question the validity of double-blind controlled trials and 'evidence-based medicine' in general (e.g. Black 1996; Vincent and Furnham 1999)."

"Rather, it adapts the technical information to existing knowledge, in the process helping to better define the traditional understanding that underlies the practice of herbal medicine. As such, this book provides both a unique education and a rationale for practitioners to broaden the range of clinical indications for many existing medicines. Useful technical data for better understanding potential adverse reactions and interactions with pharmaceutical drugs is another important learning outcome."

"However, many therapeutic oils are so potent that they are still active in herbal (Galenical) preparations. Upon isolation these oils are highly concentrated, and are widely used in this form by aromatherapists—mainly for external application but sometimes for internal consumption (in diluted forms). Most oils consist of complex mixtures of chemical compounds, and it is often the unique chemical combination rather than a single component that is responsible for any therapeutic activity."

"Eventually, he emulated Edward Bach, creator of the Bach Flower Remedies, which are herbal medicinals said to capture the healing essence of plants. Peter was a nature lover and herbalist, so he decided to see if there were plants from the Australian environment that might help treat his symptoms. Peter had an early version of an electronic imprinting device, so he could, if he needed to, make homeopathic-like remedies from any flowers or plants that seemed promising in treating his symptoms."

"Brekhman, along with a team of researchers from the Siberian Academy of Sciences, tested 158 herbal folk remedies from the Soviet Union, Europe, and Asia. They determined that some of the remedies contained extracts from plants with exceptional abilities to promote what they described as "a state of nonspecific increased resistance." In other words, certain herbs support the healthy function of every system in the body and protect it from biological, chemical, environmental, and psychological stressors. Dr."

"Any antidepressant or stimulant—whether it's a prescription pharmaceutical or an herbal preparation—has the potential to trigger a manic episode in someone with bipolar disorder. Generally, though, people who take mood stabilizers are at lower risk for this sort of reaction, especially if they have bipolar II. Those with bipolar I are prone to more severe—sometimes even suicidal—depression and more intense, agitated manic episodes. For this reason, doctors should monitor their treatment especially closely."

"For the past quarter-century or so, the airwaves have been abuzz with news of the latest herbal supplement that will improve our health and, possibly, extend our lives. We've heard about Gingko biloba, kava kava, ginseng, St. John's wort, and numerous other popular herbs. Why the tidal wave of interest? The number-one reason that people turn to alternative treatments like herbs is that conventional treatments have failed to make them well."
