Herbal Medicine

  • By Raed7126

    After 3 years of doctors moving me along and giving me too many ineffective medicines to count, I decided to do some research on natural healing. For the past 4 years, I have been treating myself with a lot of natural Peppermint.

    (Side note: I did this research because my doctors literally told me that there was nothing more they could do for me. This may not work for everyone, and you should definitely consult your doctors if you wish to try it. Please be aware that dosages and allergies apply for everything.)

    I grow the plants, make the oils and teas, and am constantly learning new ways to use it. Turns out you can add the oil to food, liquids, and use it for aromatherapy. I find that as long as I ingest it in some way, it helps. However, it doesn’t help all of the time, and I still struggle with many symptoms.

    Has anyone else found alternate ways to help manage the symptoms?

    Wow making your own peppermint oil sounds amazing Raed7126! I’m so glad that you find that it helps you (most of the time) what a great find!

    I’ve recently been through a herbal antimicrobial treatment myself for SIBO (Small Intestine Bacteria Overgrowth) and it’s really helped (I’ll be writing about it in an article soon).

    Plus I find that walking, yoga, Epsom salt baths and herbal tea (including peppermint) all help too! Thanks so much for sharing your treatment with us, it’s always great to hear what works for everyone – Hannah (www.IrritableBowelSyndromen.net Team)
