black cohosh and or magnesium, do they really help?

i am soo confused about the controversies about mainly black cohosh. i read everywhere that it can help with seizures then i read one or two things that say that it can CAUSE seizures. does anyone really know?

what about magnesium? i read magnesium helps but then one place says citrate another place says cheleated and the list goes on and on.

i am not on meds right now and have not been on them for years. i have had grandmals from photo sensitive convulsive disorder.

i can have a seizure from strobe light effects such as the sun filtering through the trees, etc.....this time of year for me is so very hard withthe sun turning a different angle it seems EVERYWHERE i go is a strobe! i can feel only comfortable going out between 10 and 4 and that sucks!

so i am looking for some herbs that may help quiet thisdown. i have not had one since sept of 1994. i live a sheltered life because of this, mainly out of fear of it.

i lived in minnesota all my life then iowa for a short time but moved to colorado and that is where i had my last one and where the sun seems to be much more intense then in minnesota, so i fear more here then anywhere.

any suggestions for me? please!
