What Supplements Do You Take?

Ive been told by my herbalist that fibro is linked to the herpes simplex virus (she is convinced !) which the NHS say the majority of the UK population has. It lies dormant then breaks out later in life giving fibro like symptoms. My herbalist is treating me with the antimicrobial herb, Barberry, at the moment for it. Been watching some dreadful links from America with scare stories of herpes !!! They can be so over the top. And lots of those cure all remedies where you have to watch some… read more

I've never had been diagnosed with herpes simplex virus. I've been told that fibro may be caused by certain injuries in the cervical spine and depression from ptsd. Some have been told low vitamin d levels and low potassium can make symptoms worse. I've been taking flaxseed oil for a couple months now and it seems to be helping. I've had less pain and sleep better at night.

The first five herbs in the Adrena Tonic :

Bayberry: Adrenal weakness, astringent, antibacterial. The primary chemical constituents include essential oils, flavonoids, phenols, starch, lignin, albumen, gum, tannins, and gallic acid.

Borage: Borage acts as a restorative agent on the adrenal cortex; it will revive & renew the adrenal glands after a medical treatment of cortisone or steroids. Borage contains Gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), beta-carotene, choline, mucilage, B vitamins, and trace minerals.

Eleuthero Rt: Nutritionally supports the glandular system, adrenal glands, energy, and stress. The eleutherosides are a range of glycosides that appear to act on the adrenal glands, helping to prevent adrenal hypertrophy and excess corticosteroid production in response to stress, additionally help reduce the exhaustion phase of the stress response, and return the adrenals to normal function faster. It has been shown to increase energy & stamina, and to help the body resist viral infections, environmental toxins, radiation, and chemotherapy. It has also been used to help restore memory, concentration, and cognitive abilities which may be impaired from poor blood supply to the brain. Eleuthero also boosts immunity. Healthy people taking 2 teaspoons (10 ml) of tincture three times daily have been shown to have increased numbers of the immune cells (CD4+ cells) that have decreased during HIV-infection and AIDS.
Hawthorne: Increases the body’s ability to utilize oxygen, and the heart’s ability to utilize calcium. This herb can actually help regulate both high and low blood pressure. This herb contians Flavonoids and oligomeric procyanidins.

Rose Hips: Adrenal glands, bio-flavonoids, vitamin C, immune enhancement.

The second five :

Sarsaparilla: Primary chemical constituents of this herb include saponins, glycosides, sitosterol, stigmasterin, resin, fat, and sugar. Sarsaparilla also contains calcium, copper, iron, iodine, manganese, potassium, silicon, sodium, sulfur, B-complex and vitamins A, C, and D. It is an excellent herb for skin conditions and has been suggested as a possible treatment for the herpes simplex 1 virus as well as for RSV, a respiratory virus that causes upper respiratory infections.

Star Anise Seed: Research shows star anise is an excellent flu deterrent.
Suma Root: Nutritionally it contains essential vitamins, minerals, amino acids and trace elements plus high amounts of the trace element germanium, which is a powerful immune stimulator. The germanium in Suma may be partly responsible for Suma’s powerful ability to bring more oxygen to the cells. This herb helps fight the virus responsible for ‘Epstein-Barr disease’. Suma is also beneficial for treating cardiovascular disease, depression, chronic fatigue and inflammatory conditions.

Uva Ursi: Helps alkalize the urine neutralizing acidity. As a nutritional supplement and muscle relaxant, it soothes, strengthens, and tightens irritated & inflamed tissues and is added in this tonic since the adrenal glands sit right on top of the kidneys.

Licorice Rt: Contains biotin, chromium, iodine, lecithin, manganese, niacin, Pantothenic acid, phosphorus, Vitamins E, B-complex and Zinc. Used for Adrenal Gland Exhaustion; Addison’s Disease; helps maintain water supply in body by balancing electrolytes. The main constituent found in the root is glycyrrhizin. Glycyrrhizin stimulates the secretion of the adrenal cortex hormone “aldosterone”. Licorice root has been said to completely reverse the ‘Shingle Virus’ over a period of long-term use. It has been demonstrated to have powerful anti-HIV action in vivo. As an herbal medicine it has an impressive list of well documented uses which include but are not limited to baldness, body odor, bursitis, canker sores, chronic fatigue, depression, colds and flu, gout, heartburn, viral infections, fungal infections, ulcers, liver problems, Lyme disease, menopause, psoriasis, shingles, sore throat, tuberculosis, ulcers, prostate enlargement and arthritis.

Licorice root appears to be the number herb here. :

Licorice root, which is the primary herb in Adrena, helps prevent adrenal failure by maintaining electrolyte balance. Research shows benefits for Addison’s disease sufferers. Glycyrrhiza has a marked effect upon the endocrine system. Its glycosides are structurally similar to the natural steroids of the body, and are responsible for the beneficial action that this herb has in the treatment of adrenal gland problems. Rather than contributing to adrenal atrophy, as synthetics do, licorice helps to preserve healthy adrenal function.
Licorice root is known to completely reverse the shingle and herpes virus within 1 years time, or less, with no further viral infection. With licorice root being an anti-viral herb it can be used to keep other viruses at bay as well.
Licorice root is excellent for any lung ailment including coughs, emphysema and asthma; it is good for depression, helps allergies, has a well-documented reputation for healing ulcers and is an excellent anti-inflammatory.
Licorice protects the liver, promotes liver healing and helps maintain the overall health of the liver. The herb’s anti-inflammatory properties help calm hepatitis-associated liver inflammation. Licorice also fights the virus commonly responsible for hepatitis.
The National Cancer Institute did a clinical trial using Licorice Root in combination with Docetacel for Hormone-Refractory Metastic Prostate Cancer that did not respond to hormone therapy. The primary outcome was PSA normalization or a 50% decline. As an herbalist I would think that it was the licorice root alone that brought the PSA levels down to normal. I would certainly recommend the Adrena for prostate cancer or the prevention of prostrate cancer along with a blood tonic. I would also suggest that Saw Palmetto and Pygeum be taken with the Adrena as both those herbs are also known to bring PSA levels down to normal and prevent prostate cancer.
