wow Spring...great reports about health improvement... congrats

yiikes... you are a lucky bum Symbi, I only tried once such p-killers and was forced
to be very gentle with me later.... btw I once also bought acetaminophen in USA in 2005 and was amazed no reactions at all.... so better to stop those....
btw... it seems ther's a biiig dif. between boswellia carteii and boswellia serrata... the first named seem to be muchmore efficient... can't tell you right now coz I didn't gave a try since but will have an eye on those to purchase soon...

Gave a try to 500 mg's of olive leaf... got knocked out literally but 250 mg's don't seem to bother me..... but this isnt' a p-killer at all but an antibacterial and antivirulent plant.... and seem to work best for O's...

I'd like to hear, read more from all other explorers about their own experiences... and I apologize to Symbi while having htied your thread

btw... why didn't you used oregano oil first instead of the hem. op

Perhaps this is good news for the folks with receptive immune systems, or who are trying to fight off a chronic infection.

Hi Isa, no worries, discussion is great and all things are linked.  I only have to take a painkiller at most once a month  .  Back on licorice root tea and the female system and adrenals are balancing nicely!  (didn't know phytoestrogens in licorice root tea!)   For muscle pain; massage, heat and stretching are the bomb.

Never heard of Boswellia but I have frankincense lol.  Off to google I go.

Those nasty 'roids I first got at 18 years old so they had years and years of bad diet and IBS to grow...   Not much chance of them growing much anymore

Quoted from Symbi
I was drinking dandelion tea and noticed that it flared up my eczema.  So I researched and found out it is also related to ragweed!  When I had flu tried some goldenseal but it flared me up too (also related)   (recently also found that emotions flare me up but that's another point).

According to this page (http://curezone.com/forums/fm.asp?i=1457463) these foods can exacerbate ragweed reaction: melons, bananas, chamomile tea, honey containing pollen, sunflower seeds, zucchini, and cucumbers

and popular relatives of Ragweed are:
Dandelion
Goldenseal
Safflower
Milk Thistle (haven't used it much lately)
Artichoke
Chicory
Sunflower
Sage
and lots of other flowers and herbs
(that page doesn't mention St John's Wort or Echninacea but should)

Yikes even lettuce is on there that's a bit much!


Symbi:
Thank you Very Much for this list.  

I did know about ragweed / chamomile connection. It does explain why I am just not keen on melons, cucumbers, sunflower seeds, and sage.  

This is ironic. A month ago I morphed from Teacher to Explorer. Naturally  I bought some of the Explorer supplements. And on that wonderful list I see that artichoke and milk thistle, both recommended Explorer supplements, are associated with ragweed.  

Well, we have finally had a couple of good, hard frosts, so the ragweed season is finally drawing to a close for another year.  

Thanks again for the research and the list

(PS - Not a ragweed relative but a problem for allergy sufferers due to its high histamine content is pumpkin!)
