Glad to see you back. I know you have been pursuing your goals. Hope all is going well.
I was reading this post and the herb that you mentioned avena satuva. It seems that it enhances the libido as well. Is this herb totally safe to take with the core protocol of buhner? Also where do you buy yours from and in what form. Do you find it lifts your spirits as well!
Hi Aphysicalwreck!!! It's good to "see" you too!!!! I really have missed the members here! LOL!
Well, I love avena sativa! LOL! It's a really good fit for me, and no, it has not helped my libido! My hormones are tanked though, so that may have something to do with it? Not sure.
I usually make my own, but if I'm going to buy it (sometimes the crop doesn't do so well- crows got to the seed this year!!! ACK!!!), I prefer Gaia brand: www.gaiaherbs.com/products/detail/401/Wild-Oats-Milky-Seed-Certified-Organic
Some companies make it out of dried oat tops, and for a more potent tincture, it needs to be 'fresh oats, in the milky stage" not dried oat tops, or worse yet, oat straw! These are not the same thing, and are not going to treat the same issues.
It doesn't really lift my spirits, but it sure takes the weight off of me from the heavy weight of anxiety lurking and waiting to jump out at me!
