dosage for carbo vegetabilis
My 24yr old daughter is suffering from depression, along with alot of back/knee pain problems.. Recently I ran across an article that I had printed out, about herbs effective for treating muscles and tendons, from someplace called essential wellness....On the last page of the article, it talks about carbo vegetabilis being used for depression, but it ended up helping a lady with back pain..something about the herb being a blood stagnation remedy..... We are getting desperate here....The doctors cant find anything wrong with the daughters back or knee, but do confess to seeing swelling... they are now recommending physical therapy.... I suggested that she try the carbo vegi, and her chiro thought it might be worth a try.... but he didnt give her a dosage.... the bottle says to use 5 pills 3 times daily, but thats the remedy for stomach gas????? Would she need to take this same dosage, or would she need to take more? The Chiro also recommended The 5htp...stuff. I know its been discussed here, and told her that I had read good things, and told her to go ahead and take that also.... but, he didnt tell her whether to take it in the morning or evening, or what.... since it has B6 in it, wouldnt it be better for her to take it in the morning instead of before bed? He also recommended that she take pine (oil I think?) He did the testing, and felt that it was an extreme need.... His office had run out, and the place he sent her to was also out.... Im trying to find it, but I am curious about it.... Has anyone ever heard of it, or have you used it before???? I am checking the herberpedia now....
thanks for the help gang... I appreciate it alot!!! Wish Lady Jo was here, she would be able to tell me which pressure points to hit!!!!! Hope she and hers are ok!!!!
God is and all is well
