    I've done a great deal of reading on herbal medicine and on aromatherapy.

    I have used infusions of nettle, lemon balm, red clover, red raspberry leaf...salves from witch hazel, plantain, burdock root.

    Flax seed oil, evening primrose oil, vitamin D, and magnesium are all good for balancing immune function and reducing inflammatory response.

    Kefir, homemade yogurt, miso...fermented foods are very good, too.

    "3. Increase your intake of antioxidants. Wild blueberries, for example, have high anthocyanin and antioxidant content that are known to guard against Alzheimer's and other neurological diseases." source

    "Several weeks ago, I wrote about my sister's dentist prescribing bee propolis (an anti-inflammatory resin created by bees used to protect their hives from fungus and bacteria) for her mouth pain and infection. I was especially interested because my sister, Diane, suffered for quite some time prior to switching to her new alternative dentist. Diane's smile today is gorgeous and her pain relief is so complete, I asked her dentist if she would share information with me about how she accomplished this transformation of my sister."

    We've had two series of a programme called 'Grow your own drugs' on the BBC over here which you may find interesting. Not sure if they're still available to view on the BBC website but I'm pretty sure the recipes are.

    It deals with minor ailments and ways of treating them with common (British admittedly) plants, trees & herbs. I found it quite interesting .... although it helped that the presenter is quite easy on the eyeballs imo

    Well, practically speaking, any herbs or foods that support an overall sense of energy and well being are going to enhance your sex life: Saw Palmetto, Ginseng and Damiana are good for reproductive support.

    If tension is the issue, Skullcap can help. Valerian isn't good for this, though, because it's a muscle relaxant, and it will actually decrease your drive to do anything but sleep a lot.

    Honestly? Drink a glass of wine. Or two. Exercise regularly. And practice good hygiene.
    I think I think more than you think I think.

    What do you know about reducing chronic muscle tension/pain and minimizing anxiety through this approach?

    Edit: I should also mention that Bromelain, the enzyme from pineapples can thin the blood, so it is a no-no for people with ulcers.
