"It has begun." Okay my roommate has decided to take the step to find herbal natural remedies to see if she can get off the drugs the pharmacy peddle. I will do research on this though if anyone had advice or knows of substitutes, feel free to let me know. She has IBS, vertigo, migraines, shunts because of hydrocephalus, takes pills for hormone replacement, melatonin to keep sleep cycle, chloresterol, acid reflux and rapid heart rate. I know her chances are slim, though to me it's a challenge worthy of trying.
