Dr Oz did a segment called The New Herbal Healers with Bryce Wylde a homeopathic medicine expert from Wylde On Health. Wylde and Doctor Oz spoke about new herbal healers to add to our medicine cabinets including Usnea, Vinpocetine and Castor Oil. Bryce Wylde said that these are not well known, but they may be even more powerful than other herbal counterparts that we have heard of before.
Dr Oz: Usnea for Infections & Lungs
Bryce Wylde said that Usnea can work two ways. You can take Usnea orally to help your lungs with problems like Bronchitis, wet or dry coughs, or other upper respiratory problems. You can also use Usnea topically, which is how the Native Americans used it, because it has anti-microbial and anti-bacterial properties. To heal an infection, mix 1 part Usnea with 5 parts of heavy stock cream or jelly and you have an antibacterial cream that works great for small scrapes or burns.
Dr Oz: Vinpocetine Boosts Memory
Bryce Wylde told Dr Oz that Vinpocetine boosts your memories. Vinpocetine comes from the periwinkle plant ant it helps to increase the blood flow to your brain by dilating your blood vessels. Therefore you can think better and remember more things.
Dr Oz: Castor Oil for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome or Strains
Bryce Wylde said that you no longer have to take Castor Oil orally to get the benefits, which is a good thing based on Dr Oz’s facial expression after tasting a spoonful of Castor Oil. Instead, you can make a Castor Oil Pack to fight inflammation, to help Carpal Tunnel Syndrome or to soothe a Strain Injury. Apply the caster oil to a cloth and place it on your injured area, like your wrist. Cover the area with plastic wrap. Place another rag on top of the plastic wrap and apply a heating pad for 30-45 minutes. The Castor Oil can go through your skin and help to reduce the inflammation in a very powerful way.
