Vitex, also known as Chasteberry, is an herb that is used by women to correct problems associated with their menstrual cycles. Vitex doesn't have any hormones itself, but it works on the pituitary gland to increase progesterone production which helps regulate a woman's cycle. It has been shown to help with PMS, irregular periods, painful periods, heavy bleeding, and possibly infertility.
One study showed that chasteberry reduced acne for women. Since women tend to break out near their periods, the positive effect on hormone levels due to vitex is the likely explanation. From my research I have found that vitex should be taken once a day, in the morning. Standardized vitex works as well as nonstandardized. I have seen the Nature's Resource brand in stores under the name Chasteberry. Be aware that vitex is a very slow acting herb that likely needs to be taken for 3 consecutive menstrual cycles before any significant improvement is noticed. It is safe to take for about 2 years.
Here is a sample report of the kind of info you will receive when subscribing to Healthy News.
Immediately take a deep breath and cough twice, as hard as you can. Wait a couple of seconds, take another deep breath, and again cough twice. This will contract your diaphragm, compressing the heart and causing it to pump. It's a simle form of self-CPR.
Keep repeating the process until your heart begins to beat normally (or until help arrives). Once your heart is stabilized, chew and swallow one asprin. Then take 2 cayenne pepper capsules or a tablespoon of Tabasco sauce. The asprin will thin your blood and prevent platelets from sticking...while the Tobasco or cayenne will dilate your blood vessels so that blood can flow freely.
This simple technique can dramatically increase your chances of survival. Please share it with your friends and loved ones. It can save their lives!
