Donna asks…

Can you suggest natural remedies fo PMDD?

I am certain I have PMDD. I get VERY depressed about a week before my period, and it lasts entirely through and a couple of days afterword. So this leaves me with less than 2 weeks of feeling normal, and then it starts again. I really don’t want to take prescription drugs, but it’s been very bad lately. I have recently stopped taking antidepressants ( a few months ago) and I know I don’t need them to help me function every day.

Does anyone know of natural remedies for PMDD, or even any resources where I could look for remedies? I think also, the lack of much sunlight (the sun sets here at about 4:30) is adding to my off and on depression.

Thanks in advance.

I do know that there are natural remedies for severe PMS, but keep in mind, that with many cases of PMDD, natural will not cut it.

I have severe PMDD, am suicidal every month. The only thing that alleviate my symptoms is Yaz birth control. You should talk to your gyn about it, Yaz has been more beneficial than not for many women with PMDD.

I wish you all the best.

hi friends i am 19,how to regrow lost hair using natural remedy which is effective and quick to grow ?

vti answers:

These are some natural remedies that help regrow your hair;

-add vitamin e oil to your conditioner bottle, squeeze the oil out of some vitamin e gel capsules (10) and mix it into your conditioner bottle. Use this normally to condition your hair.

-You can also add Natural Aloe vera to your shampoo bottle or buy the one from Whole Foods brand name J.A.S.O.N “Moisturizing 84% Aloe Vera” pure natural shampoo, it also has vitamin e.
If you want to do it the natural way, than you just have to get a natural aloe vera leaf and take the pulp out, only use about 4 inches and put it into your conditioner bottle. You may have to cut it into pieces for it to fit into. After that just let it concentrate for 5-7 days and than use it normally to shampoo your hair. The aloe vera pieces can stay inside your bottle.

-another great remedy is Lavender oil or grape seed oil, you have to warm the oil before and than massage your scalp for a few minutes before showering. The lavender oil only comes in a small bottle so use only 5 drops to massage your scalp, you can put the drops in a spoon and than warm it up over the stove. As for the grape seed oil you can use the one for cooking and use 3 spoons of this, heat up the same way. * Do this at least 3x’s a week

Be consistent and you will see amazing results in a short time.

Natural remedies for?

An infection in the ear? causing vertigo and weak legs.

vti answers:

Echinacea is a very well known immune booster, and although it is not a specific cure for ear infections it can greatly reduce the life span of the infection, effectively speeding recovery.
Garlic has been known for his antibiotic properties and is an excellent ear infection remedy. A few drops of garlic oil placed onto cotton wool and inserted into ears can help clear up an ear infection. Also, adding garlic to food on a regular basis can also help to prevent reoccurrence of ear problems by boosting the immune system.

Maria asks…

is there a natural remedy for fleas?

vti answers:

Hi Steve –

Sure there is! Within the past few years the popularity of using safer more natural (non chemical) alternative preventatives on pets is soaring. A very popular and effective flea preventative for dogs is the use of garlic in their diet. Another choice would be adding sulfur to their diets once a week. Another suggestion is giving your dog the powdered variety of Black Walnut Hulls in capsule form. All of these can be purchased from your local Health Food Stores. One or more of these methods repels ticks, and mosquitoes as well. Please read the directions carefully as the dose for dogs will be different than for humans. You should research these alternatives before trying them.

Another helpful preventative is regular bathing during those pesky months which fleas, ticks, and mosquitoes are at their worst. Try an herbal shampoo with one or any variety of: Rosemary, Pine Cedar, Lavender, Juniper, Geranium, Eucalyptus, Citronella, and Bergamot.

After a nice bath and warm rinse you have the option of using White Distilled Vinegar or Apple Cider Vinegar as a final rinse on your dog. Some people use this full strength however I suggest you dilute it. For example you can fill a small bucket with 3/4 white distilled vinegar (or apple cider vinegar) and add 1/4 water to it. Or you can choose to go half and half. It’s up to you. Fleas don’t like vinegar at all.


There seems to be minimal information and suggestions on natural flea preventatives and remedies for cats. I have added a few links below that should help you.

Natural Flea Remedies that Don’t Work

There are a few remedies that are often suggested to remove fleas from the cat including garlic, brewer’s yeast or the B vitamins. These have not been proven to be effective in removing fleas.

It is important to note that garlic is toxic for cats and applying this on the pet’s coat may cause poisoning, as the cat can lick and chew the coat and ingest garlic.

Be aware that dogs and cats have different requirements when it comes to flea control. Flea control can also vary between dog breeds. Check with your veterinarian before administering any flea control product directly to your pet or adding anything to your pet’s diet.
