Evergreen trees and plants are our go-to winter tonics when other foliage is sparse on the ground. Festive herbs like mistletoe, pine, holly and ivy are all part of historic medicinal traditions that have been mostly forgotten – except, of course, by herbalists!
This month I’m going to take you through a few of my favourite anti-infectious herbs, starting with antivirals. But first, another cautionary note on antibiotics.
They do not say, but they do it! Years ago, at a meeting in N.Y., someone from an investment fund explained this. In the monetarist school only those who are very productive, 20-45 years old, may get public support, writes Jack Soifer.
The top users at a Public Health Service, are elderly, then children. For speculative funds, the PHS should focus on emergencies. People must pay health insurance, often it’s tax deductible. Most of the insurers refuse to reimburse some of the expenses. Desperate patients pay, then they invest time, money and effort in a process that takes years. Many give up, the emotional cost is too great.
ALGARVE ASSIST is your new health and medical assistance partner in the Algarve.
We know how challenging it can be when you are either living or travelling in a different country and need to access to medical care. It's the language, the paper work, the lack of information or support, the variables that you cannot control etc. However, our vision is that no one should face such challenges alone. That is why we have created a medical and professional service, providing you with support and expertise when you need it.

Having battled with period trouble myself, I feel strongly about this topic. Women tend to grin and bear PMS, pain or heavy flow as if it’s the norm – yet it really doesn’t have to be this way.
I’ll say it again: just because PMS, heavy or painful periods are common, doesn’t mean they’re normal. All of it can be avoided by taking a few simple steps towards holistic hormonal health.
One of the running jokes in clinic when I was training to be a herbalist was – ‘if you don’t know what to do with a patient, just give them liver herbs’.
Although it may seem flippant, we were only half-joking – and there is no better time to pay attention to the health of our livers than after a merry season of overindulgence!
