Re: Poll: Rhodiola, Ginseng and Ginko
Before I had my mercury-silver dental amalgams removed, one of the first herbs I took to help me with my pains was ginseng. It was just a small amount that was packaged in a tea bag with other herbs by Celestial Seasons. That was about 20 years ago.
I was trying to run. I was trying to find out why I was having all these problems. I experimented with a better diet and some supplements, and that helped a little. When I would come back from a short run, my shin bones would hurt really bad.. When I took the herbs with the ginseng, the leg felt like it "unraveled" within in an hour or so. It's kind of hard to explain, but the herbs helped me so much, that I could never forget.
Many years later, when I suffered so much that living did not seem worth while, I remembered the herbs again. It was the herbs that helped until I could link this to my dental amalgams. Ginseng will always be remembered by me as the first. Other herbs help me slowly, but the ginseng reacted with me so much faster than the others in those days.
