    Oh sorry didn't know we can't post links. I have no relation to this product in any case.
    How come when I posted the info on apple cider vinegar it was not removed?!

    The name of the product in case people are interested is Reckeweg VC-15.
    Hey, if we're allowed to name xanax, why not this right?

    I'll try this out and let you guys know.
    Though my anxiety has been way down in the last 3 weeks, I still get my moments.

    Good Morning peace soul,
    The link went directly to a online site selling product, price list and all were on the first page.
    I did post in my edit right from the rules:
    Links to helpful web sites (commercial or otherwise) are allowed when they are posted by someone without any "vested interest" AND whose purpose is NOT to solicit, advertise, promote, fundraise, etc.

    You may post the name of the supplement, however, the link was an advertisement with online ordering info and buying list to one company.
    I did not edit because I thought you had any vested interest, it was content on the link.  I hope that clarifies the edit for you more clearly.
    Thanks

    Dear Peace,

    I tried plenty of homeopathic remedies & even went to a Naturopath, very pricey. At the end of the day I felt I simply ran up my credit cards with no effective result. My pdoc recommended against them as they are untested, unregulated & many come from China with suspect ingredients. I'm all for trying what ever gives relief, but these "natural" (does not mean safe) unknowns are not FDA approved & can have unintended negative results. Always inform Dr. if taking them.

    Cary, I respect your input/experience, but homeopathy is not unsafe medicine.
    Homeopathy has been around longer than conventional medicine.
    Conventional medicine, though tested in a clinical setting, still has horrible side effect and does kill more people than natural remedies.
    Conventional does not mean "safe" as well

    Europe is full of actual hospitals that are strictly homeopathic. They are firm believers in non drugs.
    North America is brainwashed into thinking they need a drug for all that ails them.
    When I went to therapy 2 diff times for depression, they wanted to drug me up with either Paxil and or Effexor. Both drugs have horrible side effects and have scary withdrawal symptoms.

    Homeopathy works in correcting the body. It's not a quick fix, so maybe you just didn't give it enough time.
    Most people want instant relief, I would rather get rid of the problem all together and not have to have the crutch of drugs.

    The homeopathy my HP gave me cost me $7. Most homeopathy cost less than $20 per remedy.
    I have insurance so my HP visits are paid for.

    Why would I inform my dr if taking them? What will the dr tell me? Dr's are not educated on these medications?!
    Keep in mind, ND go to med school as long as an MD, the difference is one rx's pharmacutials, the other natural meds.

    Yes, I'm very passionate about natural health
    North America is not called the Prozac nation for nothing.

    Dear Peace,

    With all due respect I'll stick with my Lexapro & Xanax. I've gotten over the stigma of being part of the Prozac nation, its working well for me.
    I believe in full disclosure to my Dr. & therapist about what I'm taking.

    My Lyme Dr and my Rheum know that I'm on homeopathy in any case, but they are not familiar with the meds I'm on and since I'm no longer on convential meds for my lyme or anxiety, they're cool with it.

    Carey, a question? What did you go see a HP for? Your anxiety or chronic pain?

    I saw a Naturopath for anxiety & depression & tried several remedies. I did find accupunture a good treatment for chronic pain and it was calming.
    I could not afford ongoing treatment. My Naturopath was $120/hour & accupncture $65/hour, my insurance covered neither. My Lexapro & Xanax scripts cost
    $12/month as that's my co-pay. I also take hydrocodone which cost $4/month co-pay.

    I tried it once and didn't feel it helped me. I know there are some dangers to Kava, but you would need to google it.
    I think like meds, some work for some people and some don't.

    Much of the natural/holistic approach is expensive. This is why it's good to hear from others and research on our own to see what may or may not work.
    It's trial and error.
     
    Did you have anxiety/depression before your other illness, or was it brought on by your illness?

    I worked in the pharmcutical research industry for 8 yrs and saw/heard info that made me a firm believer the option of meds was not for me, this is why I've always tried the natural route.
    With my lyme I did do antibiotics, but stopped once realized it was not helping but making me worse. I'm am now again, trying the alternate route with the HP's and will go the herbal route with the assistance of an actual medical dr who rx's herbs.
     
    Keep in mind, Dr's who are actual medical dr's like Andrew Weil stepped away from the pharm drugs to treat alternatively.
    There is a slew of medical dr's who are actually getting their degrees here in Montreal from the homeopathic school.
