Herbalism For Fun & Profit

Some insights and thoughts after my visit to the Naturopath about my sleep and chronic sinus problems:
  • The herbal sleeping tablets (aka "The Great White Hope") he prescribed are, frankly, a disappointment. I'm still waking up in the middle of the night, but instead of the usual Bing! Wide Awake! there is a noticeable degree of grogginess. The jury is still out on whether this is an improvement.
  • Horseradish, Garlic & Vitamin C tablets sound like they'd taste disgusting don't they? They do, not least of which because they're coated in aniseed. BLECH!
  • Is it weird to fall in love with a nasal spray? My new saline and eucalyptus nasal spray combines almost the exact same degrees of life enhancing qualities and ick factor as some boyfriends.
  • Major doses of vitamin B make me borderline speedy, I'm that cheap.

hey sweetpea,

I delved into your past posts at one point and left a blurb about sleeping stuff, but I can't find the post anymore so I don't know if you replied.

some of my family friends got a LOT out of going to a sleep clinic - most for sleep apnoea but that's not all they look at. your GP should be able to refer you to one.
