I have a question regarding "Noni"  Juice.  Before I left the states several years ago it seemed to be all the rage;  I never tried it but now I find myself encountering it in Costa Rica at the market being sold by "Natural Doctors"  or  one may call some of them shamans.   Anyone familiar with this,  I must be careful with even natural substances as I have a problem with my Liver.   Thank You

AD 1850 "That prayer is superstition. Here, drink this potion."
AD 1940 "That potion is snake oil. Here, swallow this pill."
AD 1985 "That pill is ineffective. Here, take this antibiotic."
AD 2000 "That antibiotic is unnatural. Here, eat this root."

Wow, thanks you two. These are good responses! Yeah, probably too late now to use them... well I still have some strained musscles in that area: my neck actually, a neck sprain, getting physio and exercise thereapy and this is helping. Now have a fever and am just resting mostly. Don't know whta is good for that. When I went nto the Philippines I got sick in a villge and they washed me with a herbal thing to cool me down... wonder what it was. Goodnight :) and Thank you! Rachel

Rachel, this answer to your question is a bit dated as I just signed up on this blog - I'm sure your sprain is healed by now but thought I'd offer my anecdote anyway for any with current sprains :-)

Alternate hot and cold herbal soaks have worked for me. I use about a 1/2 oz of nettle, and 1/4 oz each of comfrey root and sage in the hot infusion and 1/2 oz of nettle, and 1/4 oz each of comfrey and peppermint in the cold soak. The liquid can be used as a compress and the herbs as a poultice, alternating hot for at least 3 minutes and cold for at least 1 minute - at least 20 minutes 3 times a day.
If you have and use essential oils - peppermint is a wonderful pain reliever and wintergreen has relieved inflammation for me.

Hiya Rachel, so sorry it has taken me so long to reply to you, I don't check in to this group as often as I should!

Arnica is a valued natural remedy for bruises and sprains. It has great pain-relieving, antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties. It comes in a cream, tincture (I have been told that it is available in pill form, but have not actually seen any pills myself). If you are using the tincture, add a few drops to a cup of water, soak a clean cloth in the water and then apply as part of the bandaging. Alternatively use in cream form and apply directly to the skin.

Tea-tree oil is a wonderful antiseptic that can be used on wounds, and it is also a wonderful insect repellant aswell! If you are using as an insect repellant, dab a few drops onto your curtains, and you will find it keeps the insects at bay. You can also apply a couple of drops to your clothes to stop the insects from bothering you when you are out and about. I have personally found that it works best when applied directly to the pulse points (wrist, neck, behind the knees and ankles), you literally just need a drop on each. Its wonderful stuff! :)

Once again, sorry for the delay, hope this helps you :)

What herbs are helpful for sprains and tense, sore muscles? Thanks. Rachel
Comment by Rachel OneLove on May 4, 2010 at 6:01pm
This is an interesting article! I have no doubt that plants communicate, with one another and with animals including humans. They are sentient beings... different from humans, but still. I've had many communications with trees and house plants. Most recently I woke up at night into that half awake state and the aloe vera plants on my book case were glowing blue and pink and waving their arms around in the air! :) I already had had the feeling they were alive, aware and able to move on their own, and it had freaked me out a bit. But once I saw them actually do it, it wasn't scary anymore, it was like, oh, ok! So that's their true nature :) Nice! :) I sit and watch them, here, wondering how it is that we don't see that with our everyday eyes, but there is so much beyond what we "see" that can be "seen" :)

The trees I know are lovely, warm and kind companions and friends and teacher's. They're quite wise and willing to help humans however they can if we are willing to hear them.
Take care, Rachel
