Fibromyalgia and Herbal Remedies

October 14th, 2007

Fibromyalgia is a chronic disorder characterized by widespread musculoskeletal pain, fatigue, and multiple tender points. “Tender points” refers to tenderness that occurs in precise, localized areas, particularly in the neck, spine, shoulders, and hips. People with this syndrome may also experience sleep disturbances, morning stiffness, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, anxiety, and other symptoms.

According to the American College of Rheumatology, it’s estimated that 3 million to 6 million Americans are living with this musculoskeletal disorder two thirds of them women, most of them white and most between 20 and 60 years old when first affected.

The Merck Manual defines Fibromyalgia as used to describe several related disorders. Various alternative terms for these disorders have been used, including generalized fibromyalgia, which is 7 times more common in women than in men, the pain and stiffness are widespread, occurring throughout the body.

Padma Basic…is it a good Supplement?

October 14th, 2007

Question: from Sam

How does your cardiac product compare to Padma Basic.

Answer: from Warren Matthews of Xtend-Life

I have to say Sam it doesn’t compare at all! Padma Basic is simply a mixture of various Herbs, fruits and even lettuce leaves. All the ingredients are ‘lumped’ together under a ‘proprietary formula’ which is a convenient way of avoiding consumers seeing what proportions of the ‘cheap or expensive’ ingredients.

There is no indication of what the active ingredients are in the Herbs etc, whether they are simply dried and put in the capsules, or, whether they are extracts.

For example, what part of the Iceland Moss are they using and how much? We use Huperzine A in some of our products which is derived from moss, but it can only be used in very small amounts as it can, like many Herbs go from being beneficial in the correct doses to toxic in high doses.
