What is better "Herbal vs. Chemical"?
What is better "Herbal Vs. Chemical" (when it come to medical and other things)? Asked by Lissette Tidwell 2 years ago.

YOUR QUESTION MAKES VERY GOOD SENSE! Which is better? Which do i prefer? Herbal... of course! For most every medicine that is in the form of a Chemical-Pill there is a very good herbal substitute. Here are two examples: Valerian Root may be substituted for Valium. Scullcap maybe substituted for Noludar (Noludar is an aid for sleeping) If you are having trouble with your nerves... use Valerian. If you're having trouble sleeping... use Scullcap. Chemical-Pills are more potent. Most of the Chemical-Pills got their start from an Herb... the scientist would determine, "What is it in this Herb that makes it work?" then the scientist would take and make an artificial form of this herb-chemical... and the scientist can increase the potency by many times Whereas with herbs... like Valerian... if you take three or four times the suggested dose... nothing much is going to happen.............. and, if you take three to four times the suggested dose of Valium you're going to get stoned I suppose the addage, "whatever turns you on" is appropriate Man has been using Herbs and Herbal Concoctions and Compounds for Centuries.... it is just recently has Science developed the way it has Which is better "Herbal vs. Chemical?" WHATEVER TURNS YOU ON Answered by Joseph Micek 2 years ago.

Chemical has way too many side effects. Herbal works very well but you need to sort out the good from the bad. Too many people have died from using chemical or have had serious side effects. A study done in New Zealand recently found that in 100 years of records no one has died from herbal medicine. Answered by Ricky Mistry 2 years ago.

"A study done in New Zealand recently found that in 100 years of records no one has died from herbal medicine." BS There have been several cases recently where people have died from relying on herbal mixed with homoeopathic treatments. 1 - woman dies from multiple organ failure after being given tradition Chinese herbal medicine, 2 - woman dies from foregoing medical care for cancer, 3 - child dies from eczema when a simple steroid prescription would have cured it in 2 days. Don't spread your lies here. You know what you are getting in a modern prescription, yes there are side effects - which are also fully understood - the side effects are caused by the drug having a pharmaceutical effect. If a herb has a pharmaceutical effect it will also have side effects, that's just the nature of them, the difference is that the dosage is unknown and random, you don't know what side drugs you're taking and they can be given out by people with no medical knowledge, Answered by Wonda Woolum 2 years ago.

For Treating: Insomnia, Migraines, Nervousness What are your experiences? Asked by Violette Manalo 2 years ago.

Yes, Valerian Root really does work! Years ago I happened to be in Eureka Springs, Arkansas and came across a most unusual Drug Store. On one side of the store was a regular Pharmacy with all the regular medications you would find in any Pharmacy. What was unique about this Drug Store, was attached to it was an Apothocary..... a person could take their prescription from their Physician and the Apothocary would find a reasonable Herbal Alternative. At the time I was being prescribed Valium for my nerves and Noludar to help me sleep. The Apothocarist indicated for me: take an ounce of Valerian and mix it with a half pint of Ginger Brandy... take a teaspooon of this mixture as often as i would have taken the Valium... i followed his advice and it worked! Valerian is excellent! However, it does stink... it smells like week old gym socks that have been left laying in a corner. The Noludar i had been taking to help me sleep... what herb was reccomended? "Scullcap"... i would make myself a hot tea and drink the Scullcap before bedtime. They both worked fabuosly! As the years went by I stopped making the Valerian and Ginger Brandy Mixture and began to use the Valerian in Capsule form. I also stopped making a tea with the Scullcap and used capsules as well. I do believe, not only does the two herbs Valerian and Scullcap serve the purposes i have mentioned...............

I happened to be in Eureka Springs, Arkansas and there was this Drug Store, a regular drug store with a pharmacist and adjacent to the drug store was what was called an: Hypothecary. You could go into the Drug Store, show them your perscriptiona and they were capable of attempting to match it with an herb. For Valium...the perscription was: an ounce of Valerian Root Powder mixed with a half pint of Ginger Brandy (take one tsp). I used this for years. Then i got to where i would just get some Valerian Root in capsule form. One thing about Valerian....IT STINKS!!! reminds me of the smell of dirty old stinking socks. Interesting at that time in Eureka Springs...I also had a perscription for "Noludar" which was supposed to help me sleep. I was given some "Scullcap" and it seemed to work better than the Noludar. It's interesting if you study the "Doctrine of Signatures" how "Scullcap" is used to help a person sleep. A Scullcap is another word for the cap a person would wear to bed and if you found the herb growing in the wild it appeared to look like a scullcap.

What are the effects of sedatives?
include examples Asked by Cory Mcgaughey 2 years ago.

A sedative is a substance that induces sedation by reducing irritability or excitement. At higher doses it may result in slurred speech, staggering gait, poor judgment, and slow, uncertain reflexes. Doses of sedatives such as benzodiazepines when used as a hypnotic to induce sleep tend to be higher than those used to relieve anxiety, since low doses suffice to provide calming sedative effects. Sedatives can be abused to produce an overly-calming effect (alcohol being the classic and most common sedating drug). At high doses or when they are abused, many of these drugs can cause unconsciousness and even death. There is some overlap between the terms "sedative" and hypnotic. The term "sedative-hypnotic" has been used to describe these joint effects, or the medications causing these joint effects. MeSH (i.e., Medical Subject Headings) classifies these agents in a single category, under CNS depressants. However, advances in pharmacology have permitted more specific targeting of receptors, and greater selectivity of agents, which necessitates greater precision when describing these agents and their effects: (1) Anxiolytic refers specifically to the effect upon anxiety. (However, some benzodiazipines are sedatives, hypnotics, and anxiolytics.) (2) Tranquilizer can refer to anxiolytics or antipsychotics. (3) Soporific and sleeping pill are near-synonyms for hypnotics. Types of sedatives: (1) Barbiturates: Amobarbital (Amytal), pentobarbital (Nembutal), secobarbital (Seconal), Phenobarbitol (Luminal). (2) Benzodiazepines ("minor tranquilizers"): Clonazepam (Klonopin), diazepam (Valium), estazolam (Prosom), flunitrazepam (Rohypnol), lorazepam (Ativan), midazolam (Versed), nitrazepam (Mogadon), oxazepam (Serax), triazolam (Halcion), temazepam (Restoril, Normison, Planum, Tenox, and Temaze), chlordiazepoxide (Librium), alprazolam (Xanax). (3) Herbal sedatives: ashwagandha, catnip, kava (Piper methysticum), mandrake, cannabis, valerian. (4) Solvent sedatives: chloral hydrate (Noctec), diethyl ether (Ether), ethyl alcohol (alcoholic beverage), methyl trichloride (Chloroform). (5) Nonbenzodiazepine sedatives: eszopiclone (Lunesta), zaleplon (Sonata), zolpidem (Ambien), zopiclone (Imovane, Zimovane). (6) Uncategorized Sedatives: carisoprodol (Soma), clomethiazole (clomethiazole), gamma-hydroxybutyrate (GHB), Thalidomide, ethchlorvynol (Placidyl), glutethimide (Doriden), ketamine (Ketalar, Ketaset), methaqualone (Sopor, Quaalude), methyprylon (Noludar), ramelteon (Rozerem).

Defind depressant?
And give example of depressant Asked by Cleopatra Ragans 2 years ago.

Depressant is a chemical agent that diminishes the function or activity of a specific part of the body (see also sedative). The term is used in particular with regard to the central nervous system (CNS). Many depressants acting on the CNS do so by increasing the activity of a particular neurotransmitter known as gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), although other targets such as the NMDA receptor, mu opioid receptor and CB1 cannabinoid receptor can also be important, depending on which drug is involved. GABA's task is to calm the CNS and to promote sleep. Drugs that stimulate the activity of this amino acid produce slowed brain function and a drowsy or calm feeling, and so depressants are generally prescribed to relieve symptoms of anxiety or insomnia. Internal systems regulate the body's production of GABA, but when medication is taken to stimulate GABA action, it is possible to induce hazardously high levels, which can dangerously slow breathing and heart rates, and may result in death. Alcohol is the most common example of a depressant. and others are: -antipsychotic drugs -barbiturates -benzodiazepines -opiates -carisoprodol (Soma) -chloral hydrate (Noctec) -dextromethorphan (DXM) -diphenhydramine (Benadryl) -eszopiclone (Lunesta) -diethyl ether -ethchlorvynol (Placidyl) -ethanol - any kind of alcoholic beverage -gamma-hydroxybutyrate (Liquid X, GHB) -glutethimide (Doriden) -ketamine (Ketaset) -meprobamate (Miltown) -methaqualone (Quaalude) -methyprylon (Noludar) -nitrous oxide (laughing gas) -tiletamine (Telazol) -zaleplon (Sonata) -zolpidem (Ambien) -zopiclone (Imovane) Answered by Patria Grand 2 years ago.

A person can be a depressant. If they are always down when they are around then they tend to bring you down as well. So, anything that brings you down and makes you want to cry. Answered by Numbers Kulzer 2 years ago.

Defind depressant?
And give example of depressant Asked by Otha Simien 2 years ago.

Depressant is a chemical agent that diminishes the function or activity of a specific part of the body (see also sedative). The term is used in particular with regard to the central nervous system (CNS). Many depressants acting on the CNS do so by increasing the activity of a particular neurotransmitter known as gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), although other targets such as the NMDA receptor, mu opioid receptor and CB1 cannabinoid receptor can also be important, depending on which drug is involved. GABA's task is to calm the CNS and to promote sleep. Drugs that stimulate the activity of this amino acid produce slowed brain function and a drowsy or calm feeling, and so depressants are generally prescribed to relieve symptoms of anxiety or insomnia. Internal systems regulate the body's production of GABA, but when medication is taken to stimulate GABA action, it is possible to induce hazardously high levels, which can dangerously slow breathing and heart rates, and may result in death. Alcohol is the most common example of a depressant. and others are: -antipsychotic drugs -barbiturates -benzodiazepines -opiates -carisoprodol (Soma) -chloral hydrate (Noctec) -dextromethorphan (DXM) -diphenhydramine (Benadryl) -eszopiclone (Lunesta) -diethyl ether -ethchlorvynol (Placidyl) -ethanol - any kind of alcoholic beverage -gamma-hydroxybutyrate (Liquid X, GHB) -glutethimide (Doriden) -ketamine (Ketaset) -meprobamate (Miltown) -methaqualone (Quaalude) -methyprylon (Noludar) -nitrous oxide (laughing gas) -tiletamine (Telazol) -zaleplon (Sonata) -zolpidem (Ambien) -zopiclone (Imovane) Answered by Cyril Braccia 2 years ago.

What are the effects of sedatives?

A sedative is a substance that induces sedation by reducing irritability or excitement. At higher doses it may result in slurred speech, staggering gait, poor judgment, and slow, uncertain reflexes. Doses of sedatives such as benzodiazepines when used as a hypnotic to induce sleep tend to be higher than those used to relieve anxiety, since low doses suffice to provide calming sedative effects. Sedatives can be abused to produce an overly-calming effect (alcohol being the classic and most common sedating drug). At high doses or when they are abused, many of these drugs can cause unconsciousness and even death. There is some overlap between the terms "sedative" and hypnotic. The term "sedative-hypnotic" has been used to describe these joint effects, or the medications causing these joint effects. MeSH (i.e., Medical Subject Headings) classifies these agents in a single category, under CNS depressants. However, advances in pharmacology have permitted more specific targeting of receptors, and greater selectivity of agents, which necessitates greater precision when describing these agents and their effects: (1) Anxiolytic refers specifically to the effect upon anxiety.

* S C U L L C A P * Go the the local health food store and get yourself some SCULLCAP More than likely it will be in capsule form Take one capsule Open it up Empty the contents into a cup Pur boiling hot water over the herb Let steep for 3-5 minutes Drinking the tea when it is HOT is the best Do not adulterate the tea with honey or lemon or anything Drink it straight Enjoy a cup before you go to bed It will be all right if you injest some of the herb Scullcap? Never heard of it? Remember back in the old days when some folks would wear a "night cap" to bed? The herb SCULLCAP in it's native state, the flower resembles a "night cap"......... According to The Doctrine of Signatures: what a plant resembles, this is what it is good for. Scullcap is good for sleep. Years ago I went to an Apothocary in Eureka Springs, Arkansas seeking an herbal substitute for "Noludar." I had been prescribed Noludar to help me stay asleep. I began taking the Scullcap........... and it worked. Not only did it workl... it has healing properties as well. SCULLCAP ABSOLUTELY WORKS ^ ^ ^ Answered by Logan Revilla 2 years ago.

Try doing a search on google or yahoo for Melatonin. The product has worked for me in the past. I got mine from HealingAmerica.com back when I was a rep for them. If you search, you should be able to find a source that offers high quality Melatonin for a small price. Answered by Clelia Elia 2 years ago.

Defind depressant?
And give example of depressant Asked by Cindi Audirsch 2 years ago.

Depressant is a chemical agent that diminishes the function or activity of a specific part of the body (see also sedative). The term is used in particular with regard to the central nervous system (CNS). Many depressants acting on the CNS do so by increasing the activity of a particular neurotransmitter known as gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), although other targets such as the NMDA receptor, mu opioid receptor and CB1 cannabinoid receptor can also be important, depending on which drug is involved. GABA's task is to calm the CNS and to promote sleep. Drugs that stimulate the activity of this amino acid produce slowed brain function and a drowsy or calm feeling, and so depressants are generally prescribed to relieve symptoms of anxiety or insomnia. Internal systems regulate the body's production of GABA, but when medication is taken to stimulate GABA action, it is possible to induce hazardously high levels, which can dangerously slow breathing and heart rates, and may result in death. Alcohol is the most common example of a depressant. and others are: -antipsychotic drugs -barbiturates -benzodiazepines -opiates -carisoprodol (Soma) -chloral hydrate (Noctec) -dextromethorphan (DXM) -diphenhydramine (Benadryl) -eszopiclone (Lunesta) -diethyl ether -ethchlorvynol (Placidyl) -ethanol - any kind of alcoholic beverage -gamma-hydroxybutyrate (Liquid X, GHB) -glutethimide (Doriden) -ketamine (Ketaset) -meprobamate (Miltown) -methaqualone (Quaalude) -methyprylon (Noludar) -nitrous oxide (laughing gas) -tiletamine (Telazol) -zaleplon (Sonata) -zolpidem (Ambien) -zopiclone (Imovane) Answered by Kathleen Tilly 2 years ago.
