The alternative herbFAQ.
Or less than serious replies to more or less serious questions
> Is there an herb one can take which will mix with alcohol to make you very sick temporarily?
Orange juice. Granted, you need a lot of the mixture ;)
>Is there any way to make a pregnancy test from herbs or something?
Yes. Drink one cup of chamomile tea a day for seven months - check your weight before and after. If it's significantly higher after there's a good chance that you're pregnant.
>Flaxseed, can it do any harm?
Sure, if you use your flax seed oil to wipe out your not-yet-dry oil painting.
>If you have been searching for Black Seed - here it is - our new Online Store (snip)
>Why is it so unique? For centuries it has been used in the Middle East and some parts of Asia (snip)
Sure. Please post a list of herbs which are -not- unique.
>Your vote for the most Amazing Herb
Placebo officinalis for one and don't forget Anecdotum noreferensis
> I find Hops and Passion Flower mixed will also knock you out for a good nights sleep or it does to me.
Yeah but you can cut the passion flower out too - I find a kind of infusion of barley, flavoured with hops and then fermented works very well for most people I know.
You have to drink about ten pints though for it to really work :-)
>Increasing testosterone level, is there a natural way to do this?
Yeah, body builders! Forget chowing down the DHEA and Tribulus terrestris. Just have a regular Sherman (tank), three times a day before meals (no cereals mind!) and you will develop Gonads of Steel!
Bull's testes are natural and contain testosterone but bio-availability is poor because yeuch, who wants to eat a bullock's bollocks sandwich.
I know, tickle my ink sac and call me a squirt, octopi have 8 testicles..... er, don't they?

>Yellow or (god forbid) brown hops strobiles are as inert as the paper bag they come in.
Would that be the brown paper bag with my beer in it?
>Re: garlic, how to?
Oh, boy that parsley stuff about taking away the dog breath.
Who does that work for?
And I don't want to hear from the person that ate the garlic themselves I want to hear from their spouse/colleagues.
The only way to take it away is *relatively*, ie make sure all yr mates eat it too!
