ThereÂs no escaping it. West Nile Virus is here in Southern California. Who wants to put malathion or another toxic chemical in their yard to try to kill mosquitoes? How can you protect yourself and your family if you do not want to spray your yard with pesticides, or if you have young children, pets, or are at greater risk because you are elderly?
Trying to eradicate the mosquito population of Southern California is a tall order, and not a very realistic one, says Dr. N. Rowan Richards, a Diplomate of the American Board of Chiropractic Internists, and a Fellow of the International Academy of Clinical Acupuncture. Dr. Richards has been in practice for over seventeen years providing alternative health care to the community, and is a Certified Herbalist through the Australian College of Phytotherapy and Texas College of Chiropractic. A respected and recognized herbal and alternative health care expert, she has published numerous articles, teaches nationally and has been a guest lecturer for a support group at the Huntington Memorial Hospital in Pasadena, CA.
Dr. Richards maintains that despite what is being reported about West Nile Virus, we are not doomed. She can provide expert information about the causes of the virus, its history, how it is passed on, statistics from the Center for Disease Control and her research on West Nile Virus, and most importantlyÂwhat anyone can do about it to protect themselves or their loved onesÂa viable solution that is inexpensive and not poisonous or toxic.
WhatÂs the answer? St. JohnÂs Wort, a very effective herbal supplement when properly extracted. In using St. John's Wort, quality is a serious issue. Over-the-counter products independently assayed have proven to be biologically inactive. The product Dr. Richards recommends is produced by Medi-Herb in Australia. Medi-Herb is a pharmaceutical manufacturer in Australia with outstanding quality control. The product is available through health professionals - doctors of chiropractic, acupuncturists and veterinarians.
Dr. Richards will tell you why St. John's Wort works against West Nile Virus, what kind is most effective, who should take it and when. With over 70% of the American population interested in herbal supplements and alternative health care, Dr. N. Rowan Richards will provide an articulate, factual, lively interview with information your readers will love! And yes, it really does work.
