Anyone else use herbal medicine for daily needs? I'm not talking about illegal drugs here either.
I use taurine daily for mental clarity and for liver cleansing. I don't drink ten Red bulls daily either lol. I use 100% natural taurine powder in a daily protein drink. I seriously suggest this product to anyone that has abused their liver over the years My liver is fine now but I had a problem earlier in life with liver inflammation from Rheumatoid arthritis and my MD said he believes Taurine has taken away the fat buildup in my liver from the arthritis and occasional drinking. He said that Taurine has been studied overseas for years and not only can stop further damage to the liver from alcohol or injury, but can also reverse effects of an abused liver. Taurine is also an amino acid that is regularly made in the body and has absolutely zero side effects at any reasonable dosage.
I also take pure magnesium and both B6 and B12 vitamins daily. I was advised by my doctor that these could help with stress and anxiety and I would agree 100% after using these for a month. I'm not a Scientoligist either I just prefer something a little more natural than a factory created synthetic medicine. I'm not too sure on the long term damage to the brain that could be caused by anti anxiety medicines. That's not even mentioning the fact I don't want to get addicted to a controlled substance even if it's legal.
Recently I was told by a friend that Kratom is a great product for stress. Has anyone ever heard of Kratom or used it and has any experience? From what I have gathered you drink it in tea and it's got a calming effect. I don't want to jump into something that is actually addicting or not thoroughly studied though.
Just thought this would be a good thread and hopefully it doesn't get locked if people use this as advice BEFORE speaking with a true MD. Hopefully I'm not coming across as Tom Cruise here and others use vitamins/ herbal products in their daily life.
