Rosemary and sage are two herbs that have shown benefit traditionally when used externally. It is suggested that to promote a clean scalp, stimulation of hair root, and thickening hair one should boil together in water rosemary, sage, peach leaf, nettle and burdock. Then strain loose herbs from liquid and use liquid to wash hair daily. Aloe Vera has been used by Native Americans, Indians and many in Caribbean to promote healthy hair and prevent hair loss. Aloe’s positive effects on skin are well known, and likewise it can help scalp by healing it and balancing pH level of scalp while cleansing pores. A common preparation of Aloe Vera gel with a small amount of wheat germ oil and coconut milk is used as a shampoo and has traditionally shown great benefit.

Arthritis Pain Relief 101Written by Charlene J. Nuble
Continued from page 1
The usual treatment for arthritis is through use of painkillers. Non-steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs) like aspirin can help relieve pain of arthritis. But they only target symptom and not disease itself. Studies even show that continual use of these NSAIDs may even cause joint deterioration thus making arthritis worse. Modern medicine does not have much to offer for cure of this disease.
The traditional temporary arthritis pain relief medications available leave a lot to be desired. Other pain solutions can be relied on to achieve arthritis pain relief. Massage therapy, hydrotherapy and cold packs are a few of simple methods of pain management. Herbal remedies such as ginger, willow bark and fish oils and well-known cartilage constituents glucosamine sulfate and chondroitin sulfate are also promising a lot in revolutionizing treatment of arthritis. Aside from symptomatic relief they offer, they actually interfere with origin of disease. They are also being considered to help body rebuild functioning joints. Also reported to be fast acting,in cream form, they increase mobility and optimal repair of joint structures as they help reinforce body's protective linings and lubricating fluids by recovering cell stability and function to stop further damage.
Those discovered treatments among many might just be best among elusive arthritis pain relief that are commercially available. But above all, no matter how clichéd it may sound, an ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure.
