"Full Circle Dispensary Without Walls"
"committed to making natural medicine affordable"

Glycerine and water are chemical solvents.
They don't seem to know what they are talking about.

There is no question that some herbal remedies work.
Many currently used medicines are based on old herbal cures.
On the other hand, if that product were truly known to work you have to wonder why they need to use so many ingredients. It seems to me that they want to impress you with lots of long names.
Most of those chemicals like curcumin and zingiberine (and they are chemicals, I can look up structures formulae and melting points etc. for them) are present in foods (turmeric and ginger in those 2 cases)
Some like berberine are common in plants but not usually in foods, not least because they are quite toxic (LD 50 values cribbed from  the web of the order of 25 mg/Kg so, by extrapolation about 1 or 2 grams would probaly kill me.)
Anyone who was ill to start with may be more susceptible to the toxic effects.

Thats worrisome... She was telling me that one of the reasons she wants to try this is because the stuff will not build up in my liver and kidneys like the pain medications and other anti-inflammatories I am taking at present!

Boy.. I really wish some one had a clue about the effectiveness of this particular mix???

Thanks BC... I know things like this are used to treat ailmens and many work.. I also know that most medications have ingredients that potentially would or could kill you given the prober dosage of certain elements in them, but also know that they try to prescribe them in pretty safe doses!

I just don't know what to do.. I am supposed to pick up either Monday night late or Thursday.. I am not sure yet, they had none in stock and had to order something so I was unable to pick it up Friday... I have agreed to try it to see if it helps to bring some relief during the daytime as the pain and inflammation in my arm have become so intense it is hard to cope with without pain meds, and I hate pain meds they make me dopey and knock me out all the time!

Ask a doctor.
You might want to see a hypnotherapist about the pain, the worst that could happen is it doesn't help.

She said she didn't know a
lot but that she thought we should give it a try and see if it is helpful. She said she had been doing a lot of reading up but was just trying to use it more so this will be learning for her and for me..

I have never been a good candidate for hypnotism.. but will try most anything so tired of pills
