Welcome to FF - I have only been posting for a while, but am now completely addicted to this site!
I have been reading about She Oak too, and have just ordered my first bottle. There is another thread in this section somewhere about it as well. It is an Australian Bush Flower Essence (similar to the Bach's Flower Remedies that you can buy in Boots and health shops). The Australian ones are more difficult to get hold of but I ordered mine via this website - www.baldwins.co.uk. I think it was about £10.00.
It is described in the leaflet as helping to overcome distress associated with infertility (got lots of that) and imbalances (also got lots of those!) in females. I have no idea if it will be of any help to me with endo - but I figure at this stage as long as it doesn't do me any harm, I will try anything. Even if it is purely pyschological - I don't care, if it increases my chances.
Thanks Alison - that's really helpful! I have ordered some as well from that site so we'll see what happens... can't do any harm, I guess. Even if it only helps with the emotional aspects it will be well worth it! Do you know what the dosage etc should be - does it have guidelines for use in with the bottle?
I haven't received the bottle yet - had an email yesterday saying it was despatched! I am hoping that there are dosage instructions with it but I think it is 7 drops once or twice a day - I will wait and see! Good luck with it.
Yes I have received the She Oak - I got the 'stock' bottle which meant I had to dilute it further - but yes I am taking 7 drops in the morning and the same in the evening. I also ordered a couple of other items from the Australian Bush Remedies range - the 'Emergency' mist and the 'Woman' cream - both of which smell lovely - I thought I would treat myself!!
I know that you have to take these things for a few weeks before you notice any benefits so will keep it going in the hope that it just might swing the balance...
I would love to hear how you get on too - lets hope it works a miracle somehow.
My reflexologist told me about She Oak also and said it was very good for balancing hormones and stuff. I bought some but haven't started taking it yet because I've started to see an acupuncturist/chinese herb chap and am waiting for him to tell me whether it's ok for me to take the She Oak with all the other stuff he will be giving me to take. I don't want to overdose! Anyway, I heard good things about it so I hope it's good for you too.
Hi, funnily enough, I did a google search this morning to buy She Oak online and came across this page. I took it a couple of years ago, but not for the full time suggested. I had to register to reply to you! A naturopath suggested I take it as follows:
Take She Oak morning and night for 4 weeks then take a break for 2 weeks. Continue with She Oak for another 4 weeks, take a break for 2 weeks. Continue this pattern for 6 months.
I ordered mine today. Here goes and all good wishes,
She Oak is a bush flower essence and it's primary purpose is balancing the female hormones it also taps into the power of mother nature to help those who take it to become more calm and relaxed about the process of creating life. It helps a womens body to accept new life. It is a beautiful essence that has an overall calming effect.
hope that helps
it is an essence that helped me calm my mind about the whole process of coming to terms with being a woman and creating new life. I am still waiting for it to happen as DH has very low sperm but it has made the wait easier to come to terms with.
I took She Oak (the Australian Bush Flower remedy, not to be conused with the Bach Flower Remedy) for 3 months and after nearly 4 years of trying and failed treatments, we conceived naturally. I strongly believe this helped along with the Natural Fertility Plan and a few magic spells
I bought some of this ages ago, and was confused by the instructions. The place I bought it from said 7 drops morning and evening, but then sent me the Stock bottle, which has to be diluted further ( I found instructions elsewhere that said to use brandy and purified water if I remember correctly). I did not find this out till after I had been having 7 drops twice daily of the concentrated stuff though. Should not think it did any harm though... I have an unfinished bottle that needs a new home if anyone is looking for some.
