    Thanks , I’ve just been searching for information approximately this subject for ages and yours is the greatest I have found out so far. However, what in regards to the conclusion? Are you sure concerning the source?

    • paulhaider says:

      Even many of the famous doctors on TV have talked about this.

      But no one single herb will work the same for everyone – and not one antibiotic, or anti-depression medication.

      Herbs are no different – You have to try it and see how it works for you.

      Thank You for your comment

    Hello, I was after the nutrition information such as the nutrirtion panel on labels. Can that be done for rose / flower petals.?

  5. N says:

    hello Dr. ! Thanks for this informative post. How can rose petals be used for menstrual disorders? Can you please elaborate?

    • paulhaider says:

      Rose petals are soothing and relaxing and because of that they can help with menstrual disorders – it has to do with stress- they can be of great benefit for stress.

      There are 2 main things that happen to the body – one is not eating right – the other is stress – in my mind these encompass 99% of all Dis-Ease.

        Thank you for your answer. Actually someone told me a remedy for irregular periods which consists of boiling rose petals in milk. So I was wondering if rose petals have an effect on female hormones?

      • paulhaider says:

        I feel they have an effect on hormones because it deals with stress. – milk contains a long (about 20 different) list of hormones – so that might trigger the effect.

        I feel stress and n-proper nutrition causes 99% of all dis-ease we have going on in this life.

        I highly recommend starting meditation – we now know that meditation can balance the human body and actually turn on
        good genes, and turn off bad genes, – the study of epigenics.

        Try or Vipassana Meditation –

        The Vipassana 10 Day Meditation Retreats are free, and put on by people who feel so strongly in their healing abilities that they volunteer their time to help others.
