    I am a strong believer in the power of herbal teas. I have read and reread the book "20,000 Secrets of Tea: The Most Effective Ways to Benefit from Nature's Healing Herbs" and have used it when trying to decide what tea I should drink. I have an inflammatory disease so my favorite teas are the anti-inflammatory teas such as ginger and chamomile. I do use medicine that my doctor has prescribed me, however, I have found that using herbal teas in addition to that has been most beneficial. I am actually in the process of writing a hub on a specific herbal tea that has many useful properties and helps with sore throats and replaces electrolytes.

    I use affirmations. I drink herbal tea, green tea, I use many different spices in my regular diet. I use vitamin E externally on minor cuts/scars to stop bleeding.
    I think very positively about myself. I close my eyes and use the power of my mind to relax and overcome things such as minor cramps, insomnia...

    Yes, I do because I prefer home remedies than shop bought medications. I think people in ancient civilisation have been using home remedies and it worked for them so I believe it still works for us.
    It is like herbs that make you feel better if you got colds or flu. Apparently ginger is good for colds and flu, mint tea for cleansing the guts, pawpaw or papaya is good for diabetic people as it is low in sugar, it prevents cancer, and some medical practitioners believe it can control premature aging and has anti-inflammatory properties and there are many more herbal meds. These are just a few that I remember.

    My "favorites" and keep on hand, grapefruit seed extract, olive leaf extract, beta glucan, milk thistle, zinc lozenges, sage tea, wild yam, magnesium, melatonin. The holistic approach to illness is give the patient the best from all worlds of healing, yoga, chiropractics, physical therapy, prayer, positive reinforcement, as well as conventional medications, surgery, very rarely is there an interaction. Always check on Drugs.com before combining meds with herbs, homeopathic s, or over the counter meds, and vitamins. Your best resource is your pharmacist. Let him know EVERYTHING you take including aspirin. The known interactions that have happened to many are combining grapefruit and meds, as well as coumadin with ANY blood thinner. Many of the herbal preps ARE blood thinners, don't go there. Again let your doctor, and pharmacist know your meds, and other things your trying, as well as any reaction to medications, as well as any known allergies, or allergic reactions that you've had. That way they can better know what to prescribe as well. All forms of healing are beneficial used in the right circumstance. So to answer your question, yes I do! :0 Uh oh Im rambling again, lol
