Stinging Nettle Cures Allergies

Stinging nettle root in tea or capsules.  Better than Claritin or Allegra.  Halts histamine production, the culprit behind sneezing and other allergy symptoms.

Arnica Heals Bruises.  Rub some arnica ointment on black and blue marks, and it'll fade faster.   Topical application of arnica can also reduce the pain and stiffness of arthritis as effectively as ibuprofen.  Just rub arnica gel or cream into bruises or sore spots for quick relief.

Black Cohosh Eases Menopause.

Before committing to hormone replacement therapy (HRT), give this herb a try:  Studies show it's as effective as HRT at reducing symptoms like night sweats and dryness, but without any negative side effects.
