QUESTION: Periodically I have shooting pain in my inner thigh area where the leg meets the groin. It is episodic in that it will happen for a few weeks and then stop for a few months and then return again. The pain is strong enough that it doubles me over.  My physician can't find any reason for the pain. Any suggestions for herbs that might relieve this?

ANSWER: A mysterious pain that doubles you over and has no diagnosis is not a matter for recommending herbs. I am sorry, Ron, other than a soothing lavender oil massage or warm castor oil pack to relieve inflammation, I do not know what will relieve the underlying problem until we know more. I encourage you to seek a second opinion, even visiting an urgent care center the next time this occurs.


QUESTION: Can you please recommend some herbs for my conditions: Vertigo, Dizzy, low blood pressure/orthostatic hypotension, memory loss, fatigue, vision problems/red eyes, anger/frustration, shortness of breath.  I've played baseball all my life.  I am now 38 years old, and all of a sudden this year I cannot see the ball, cannot hit the ball, and feel totally awful out there. Very frustrating.  Obviously I cannot take anything that lowers blood pressure because it is already too low.

ANSWER: I am sorry to hear of your frustration. Toxins, stress, emotional trauma, lack of self love, and other factors, may have contributed to this state. A path of positive influence, and positive thinking is best for you. Listen to the video Harmonic Wealth.
