    Have you ever heard of Sleep Paralysis
    If so what causes it, and what can prevent it. I am 53 years old, and I have had Sleep Paralysis since I was 15 years of age. Sometimes it is worse than others.
    Thank you

  4. Nancy Huimfleet says:

    How do you apply licorice extract on your face for Rosacea and how often do you use it?

  5. I saw the Dr. Oz show where he spoke about rosacea and you use a tincture of licorice in liquid, you can add it to green tea which he also recommends drinking several times a day. I use a decaffeinated green tea.

    Plus he recommended tea tree oil which you can find in soap. Tea tree oil can be applied to your face with a cotton ball but I like the soap.

  6. Beverly Lewis says:

    On Tuesday’s show he recommended Licorice root tea for relaxing. He forgot to mention that licorice root has some bad side effects .It causes fluid retention therefore should NOT be used by persons with high blood pressure and pregnant women who are subject to edema.
