    Question by jgurl45: what do you think about legal “herbs”???????

    2 each its own. When you do a drug test they test particularly for that drug by name. And on the side it has weather it is positive or negative. Best decision is to stay away its really harmfull in the longterm.

  • Truth and Lies about Menopause Herbs

    Article by Brian B. Carter, MS, LAc

    Menopause Herbs Don’t Work?
    by Brian Benjamin Carter

    A couple years ago, a study of herbs and other natural remedies for menopause got a lot of press. Particularly of note were its assertions that black cohosh is the only herb shown to help in menopause.

    We could incorrectly assume then that no herbs help for menopause. However, there are some problems with that conclusion. Let’s take a look at them:

    1. Most herbs have not been subjected to RCT’s (Randomized Controlled Trials, medical science’s most advanced study design).
    2. RCT’s are not the only kind of study that provides reliable information.
    3. Herbs are hardly ever prescribed alone. Research should be conducted on time-tested herbal formulas for menopause – not single herbs.
    4. American researchers tend to ignore or discount research done outside the U.S.
    5. Researchers’ own biases affect their conclusions… no study is perfect. Researchers may have little trouble finding reasons to throw out a study whose conclusions threaten their beliefs.

    Ok, then…

    1. Which herbs have been subjected to RCT’s?
    A quick search of MedLine for “herb randomized controlled trial” yields only 13 results for 11 herbs and herb formulas (note that searching for just herbs alone yields more than 2300 studies):

    St John’s Wort, Black Cohosh
    Bing gan tang, Yi zhu tang, Yi Er Gan Tang (Hep C)
    Phyllanthus, ‘Jianpi Wenshen recipe’, Fuzheng Jiedu Tang (Hep B)
    Polyporus umbellatus polysaccharide
    Echinacea (Common cold)
    Ginger (Nausea)
    ‘AM’ a Ugandan herb remedy (Malaria)
    I know this is not the full list of well-studied herbs. The groundbreaking 1998 Journal of the American Medical Association issue on alternative medicine included the first RCT faithful to the principles of chinese herbal medicine, a study of herbs for IBS.

    In the November 2002 review of menopause treatments, only 10 of the 29 studies (RCT’s) they reviewed studied herbs. Of those, only two – black cohosh (sheng ma) and dang gui – are chinese herbs. There are many chinese herbs and herbal formulas for menopause that have not been studied in RCT’s.

    2. RCT’s aren’t the only kind of study.
    Without a doubt, they are the best, the gold standard

  • Can a person’s “aura” speak volumes about them?

    Question by Luke: Can a person’s “aura” speak volumes about them?
    Should you pay attention, close attention to the energy and “aura” that a person gives out? If it’s a happy aura, shady aura, positive aura, etc?

    Can that really speak volumes about the person themselves, or should you never judge a person by that.

    Have you ever encountered people with either negative or positive auras and been proven right or wrong?

    Do you ever judge people and try to get their aura by their avatar and how they type on yahoo answers?

  • Is there anyone out there who knows anything about animal totems or spirit guides?

    Question by Will Clement: Is there anyone out there who knows anything about animal totems or spirit guides?
    (Trollers, fundamentalists, atheists and Jesus freaks, though I value your opinions I neither want nor need them at the present time… so shoo!)

    I have a Red Fox totem who always appears to me whenever I go into a state of meditation, but he acts strange. I read somewhere that your animal totem should always be willing to get close to and I have read stories of people who commonly play with their totems, but he always keeps his distance. Also, when he speaks to me, its always hard to understand and whatever I can understand is always very cryptic. I was wondering, is this normal behavior for fox totems, or is it that I haven’t fully accepted his presence and his behavior is a result of this? I also was wondering if anyone with fox totems could tell me a little bit about how their totems behave so I have something to compare my totem to.

    Also, something… confusing happened a couple of days ago during one of my meditations.
    It was after my Fox totem walked away and left me simply lying in the middle of a small forest clearing enjoying my meditation. Suddenly, my meditation became very vivid and a voice nearby laughed and said “enjoying ourselves are we?”
    I looked up and sitting right beside me was a Red Fox, but it wasn’t my animal totem. This one was a vixen. I said yes, and then asked who she was since she obviously wasn’t my totem. She replied, “oh, nice to meet you! I’m your spirit guide!” (*note* I am aware of the difference between animal totems and spirit guides)

    This, of course, raises quite a few questions. Is it possible for a person to have a spirit guide that is the same animal as your totem? If so, what does that indicate about a person?

    Also, when I asked her how long she would be with me for, she said that she would be with me for my entire life, which spirit guides don’t do. Spirit guides come and go whenever the lesson that they wish to teach you has been learned or needs to be learned. Totems, on the other hand, stay with a person for their entire lives. Could she be another animal totem of mine? I read somewhere that people usually have two totems, one that represents their male side and another that represents their female side. However, if she represents my female side, how could I have two totems that are both the same animal? Is it even possible? Also, what does it mean? Thoughts anyone?
    Thank you Neanie, your answer was very helpful…
    but the spirit guide that appeared in front of me wasn’t a lady, it was another Red Fox. During a meditation I had today, I was talking with both my totem and my spirit guide(second totem?) at the same time, so she can’t be Shinoa can’t be posing as a vixen. (Also, today I learned that her name was Nikita… just in case anyone was curious)

    It seems like the fox and the woman kinda inter connect. I have a book about animal totems and have looked it up out of curiosity. The key notes of the fox are feminine magic of camouflage, shape shifting and invisibility. Though I don’t know much about what you have written it seems to me that your best bet would be exploring what the fox means and what it represents to you. You may also want to investigate that symbol because it seems like it is connected to the other things you are experiencing.
    The book I have is called “Animal Speak The Spiritual Powers of Creatures Great and Small” by Ted Andrews. It is an excellent book and goes into detail about different animals and what they represent to cultures throughout the world. I highly recommend it and in my opinion, may be a good place to start.
    As for the lady who you are asking about being the spirit guide that is the same as the animal totem, it would seem to me if one of the characteristics of the fox is shape shifting, then it is not entirely impossible that this lady was the fox visiting you in another form. This explanation would make the most sense to me.
    I myself do not have the fox totem. I have limited experience with the fox and do not currently know anyone at this time with that totem. I think your best bet would be starting with the book I recommended as well as study the fox, fox behaviors and do research into it. Hope that helps
