Butterbur Supplements Prevent Migraines
Prescription medications for pain, sleeping problems, etc… can be effective but they also have unwanted side effects that can cause problems now and even more so in the future. Dr. Low Dog says that there are better natural alternative treatments for common every day ailments with fewer side effects. Here are the recommendations that were given :
Migraines Remedy and Dosage : Take a 75 MG Buttterbur supplement for migraine headache prevention twice a day. Look at the labeling and try to find one that says PA-Free.
Anxiety – Chamomile Tea or Chamomile Supplements are effective at reducing anxiety and calming your nerves. Dosage : Take 1,000 MG if your taking a supplement or drink 2-3 cups of chamomile tea each day.
Chronic Pain – SAMe Supplements can help to reduce pain as much as Ibuprofen. Start out by taking 200MG of SAMe. If that isn’t strong enough you can work up to 1,200 MG per day. SAMe supplements also have the added benefit of being able to alleviate depression!
Sleeping problems – Dr. Tieraona Low Dog said that a study was done that has shown that a combination of Valerian Root, Hops, and Passion Flower help you to sleep as well as Ambien, but without the unwanted side effects.
Dosage : Look on the labeling and check for 300 MG of Valerian Extract, 80-100 MG of Passion Flower, and 30-50 MG Hops extract. Be aware that it can take up to 2 weeks until you see the full benefit for this all natural sleep aid.
