hen I called organizational guru, Lori Hennecke, owner of iDOitALLjust4U, about helping me to organize and downsize my possessions, I couldn’t find my planner to check my calendar. Then, I accidentally dropped the phone. Clearly, I was in need of emergency help. We set a date for the following week for her to come and evaluate my situation, and so, I began cleaning. Here’s my dirty little secret – I would rather have a root canal, than have someone come in and look at my things. And believe me, I have things. A well-lived life is between these walls, as well as boxes unpacked from previous moves and memories of my husband. Letting go of those will be a wrench, even though I know that the former

sailor, who believed everything should be “shipshape and Bristol-fashion,” would applaud the move. I told Lori to pull her car in behind mine. I think my theory was that I couldn’t run away screaming, if my exit was blocked. Now that she’s almost here, I’m wondering if she’s the one who’s going to run. The day of the appointment dawns. I open my email to find a cheery note from Lori, saying that it’s going to be a wonderful day. I am glad that one of us

Lifestyle, finances important when downsizing By Shelley Koppel Associate news editor

MELBOURNE – When people are thinking of downsizing, financing and lifestyle are two important considerations. That’s what Jenny Walker, a brokerassociate with Ellingson Properties in Melbourne, tells her clients. “People have to think of finances first,” she said. “How are they going to purchase the home? Are they selling something? Do they have a mortgage? How much cash do they have, and do they want to put it all on a place to live for the next 10-15 years?” Once the financial decisions are made, clients are faced with decisions about how they want to live the next period of their live. That includes thinking about whether they want to have a single-family house, townhome

or condo and where they want to live. “They have to think about lifestyle,” Ms. Walker said. “What activities do they like? Do they want responsibility for the yard? Do you they want a garage or workshop?” Ms. Walker said that empty-nesters have to consider whether they want to live in a gated community and/or one that is for those 55 and older. Some people prefer not to have children around, while others like seeing kids in the neighborhood. “Many communities have golf, a pool and a clubhouse,” she said. “Look at the bulletin board – it has activities. Are they things you’d be interested in? Do some detective work, driving around at different hours of the day and on weekends. Get a feel for the neighborhood. If they have a newsletter, you can get great information.” For many people, the idea of a com-

Jenny Walker munity where the maintenance, roofing and grounds are taken care of for them is attractive, but there is a caveat. “You need to look at association fees,” Ms. Walker said. “That cuts down on extra money. Fees may cut down on your lifestyle and how much you can pay for the property.” Choosing a place to live means look-

ing at the surrounding area, including how far the home is from stores and other amenities. Then, it’s a question of how much house you need. “You should evaluate the space you have,” she said. “Downsizing doesn’t always mean fewer rooms. It may mean smaller rooms. Make a side-byside chart of the furniture in the current house. Will it fit in the new place and accommodate how they want to live?” One thing people notice when they move, especially from a house to a townhome, is that there are fewer closets. “That’s when they purge things they don’t need anymore,” Ms. Walker said. “For most people, even a fun move is stressing. Start looking for other things before you have to move. “If you find moving overwhelming, See LIFESTYLE, Page 9

Designer brings eclectic flair to downsizing By Shelley Koppel Associate news editor

COCOA VILLAGE – Designer Michael Gainey doesn’t look at downsizing as a bad thing. “Downsizing is a positive,” he said. “A lot of my clients downsize for that reason. The kids are gone and they’ve moved to a condo. They want to travel and they don’t want a yard. They don’t want all those empty rooms. A lot of the communities have pools and tennis courts. I like small spaces. They are so much fun to decorate.” Mr. Gainey said that he first asks clients what they absolutely want to keep. “It may be a special chest or beautiful bed,” he said. “There is a sentimental attachment to furniture. The big dining room set may be where they had all their holidays. It’s hard to get rid of.” Mr. Gainey suggests that clients try to remain detached. “Step away and look at this as a new adventure,” he said. “It’s an exciting new home. What will fit – scale and proportion-wise? Take your heart out and put your head in.” Mr. Gainey has many clients who move into condos or townhomes and have less room. He suggests that they choose items that make it feel like home, including art and items they’ve collected during travels. “It always feels like it’s home to them, and that’s important,” he said. “It’s not the same house, but it’s the same home.”

Mr. Gainey said that client will often keep the bed, and he will work around that. “I like eclectic design,” he said. “I may get smaller nightstands. I’ll mix and match so they’ll have some of the past. I’ll take their grandmother’s chair and recover it. I try to use many things that belong to them. That’s their life.” For those items that won’t fit into the new home or lifestyle, Mr. Gainey works with an estate sale specialist. The sellers can leave and not see the possessions removed, or they can stay. “If they stay, they get to see younger people buying the things and starting their lives,” Mr. Gainey said. “They feel so much better when the people say, ‘We’ll take good care of it.’” Mr. Gainey then turns his attention to the new space. “We can breathe new life into the former possessions,” he said. “We can take grandma’s hutch and paint it, and it’s shabby chic. Many of his clients are also moving into homes with smaller kitchens and dining areas. “They can consolidate china, platters and bowls,” he said. “It’s time to let go. Usually, if you edit your things, you find you have more than enough space.” “Pass things down,” he added. “Give your granddaughter the punchbowl and then go to her house for Christmas. Enjoy giving it now.” Mr. Gainey is a proponent of the “jewel box home.” The term is attributed to architects Frank Lloyd

Wright and Louis Sullivan, who were both said to have used it to describe their favorite designs. “A jewel box is a very precious space,” Mr. Gainey said. “I think it means a rich environment. In a dining room that was tiny, we ‘jewel-boxed’ it, using lush fabrics and crown moldings. It’s a jewel box. Good things come in small packages, and you don’t have to give up the look.” Mr. Gainey said that small spaces are easier and cozier to design. “They’re fun,” he said. “You can use a dramatic wall cover in a small space. It’s hard to make a large space look cozy and intimate. You d o n ’ t have to give up on style with an intimate space.” Mindful that decorating a home can be expensive, Mr. Gainey offers a See DESIGNER, Page 9

believes that. I have tried not to do any cleaning because I thought that would be cheating. Now, I’m not so sure. We are going to begin by sorting, she had said. I have spent years avoiding just that. Today begins a new day – I am ready, resolute. I am scared. As I await the arrival of someone I am beginning to think of as my drill sergeant, I begin trying to put things away. Then suddenly, she’s here. She comes in, and we sit at the table, which has nothing on it. That, in itself, is strange, but I wanted to make a good first impression. I quickly learn that Lori, although firm, is not a drill sergeant. She’s more like a benevolent nanny, guiding my steps and never scolding. “Clutter is not the problem,” she tells me, although I might differ. “Clutter is the result of the problem. Think of it as the ‘dandelion effect.’ We can make it pretty, like if someone mows the yard

FOREVER YOUNG and you take off the dandelion tops. It can come back if we don’t cut it at the root.” Now, I know my problem. I think dandelions are pretty. I don’t know a flower from a weed. The first thing we decided to focus on, with hurricane season ahead, is putting my important documents in one place, preferably a fireproof box. I don’t have that, but I do have an old crate where we put titles, insurance papers, Social Security cards, bank statements and the like. “When you know where those are, it’s peace of mind,” Lori said. I know she’s right, but I can’t find one important document that I didn’t realize I couldn’t find. It’s the title to my house. It will be peace of mind – once I find it. Amazingly, the next day, I do. Lori said that mail is one of the biggest sources of clutter. “Most people have no system for what they do with mail,” she said. “Set up files with ‘Bills’ and ‘To Do’ sections. Set a bill paying routine. It takes 21 days

to form a good or bad habit. Every day, open the mail and do something. Have a file folder for coupons, and keep it in the car. What good is it if it’s not with you?” “It’s not good if it’s not at hand when you need it,” she continued. “You’ve set it aside and saved it for nothing because when you find it, it’s expired.” We continue setting up files and I exclaim, “Bank Statement!” when I find one, as if I’ve discovered gold. Lori is unfailingly patient and encouraging, even as I begin to flag. After 90 minutes, I’m done for this session. We’ve made a good start, but there is much to do. She agrees to come back in two weeks, and I will press on, putting her smart advice to good use. During the next few weeks, hundreds of old files, notes and other pieces of paper leave the house. I have turned into a filing fanatic. Empty cartons and egg crates are piling up. I don’t want to get rid of them because they will form the basis of the new, improved filing system. I am pumped. I really wanted to get

rid of a lot of this stuff, but I didn’t know where to start. There is even carry-over. I have begun clearing out the front seat of my car! Maybe somebody will be able to ride with me soon. As I work at uncluttering, I remember what Lori told me. “If you haven’t touched it in six months to a year, unless it’s sentimental or an heirloom, you probably don’t need it,” she said. “This is dealing with the root of the problem. If you don’t deal with the problem, it will come back. It’s really so simple.” And that’s why she’s the professional. For me, it’s back to the boxes. I have premises to keep and things to file before I can sleep.

HURRICANE SEASON UPDATE

MAP COURTESY JOE ZELENAK AND ERIC MACON

Quiet July does not mean we’re in the clear yet

H

i everybody. We are about two months into the Atlantic hurricane season. The season had a very early start with four named storms before the end of June. Since then, the action has quieted down with no opportunities for a named storm on the immediate horizon. At present, the conditions in the Atlantic and Caribbean are just not prime for tropical development. It is important to note that July is normally not a very active month, with the conditions in the Atlantic really starting to come together around mid-August. This will usually happen when the waters start to heat up and the wind shear is at its lowest. Remember to keep this in mind, as the season progresses. In 1992, the entire beginning of the

STORM TRACKER JOE ZELENAK

season had no named storms. It looked as though it was going to be a quiet season, since nothing was forming in the Atlantic basin. But on Aug. 14, a tropical wave emerged off the coast of Africa. With a large pressure ridge in place, the wave quickly moved west toward the hurricane breeding grounds. On Aug. 18, the system began to create a rotation, and the beginning stages of a tropical system were emerging. As the system moved toward the northwest, it ran into an area of extreme wind shear that all

but entirely tore the system apart. Hurricane hunters could no longer find a definitive center. As the low moved toward the west, a high-pressure ridge built across the Southeastern United States at the same time that the wind shear relaxed over the Atlantic. The system began to spin, and on Aug. 22, Hurricane Andrew began his march toward the East Coast. The initial forecast called for a landfall near Jupiter, with winds of 100 mph. Little did we know, at the time, how far off this forecast was going to be. As Andrew moved west, it started to become apparent that the ridge was much stronger then originally thought. The system was not going to re-curve at all, but maintain a westerly course instead. On Aug. 23, Andrew became a

Category 5 hurricane, with winds of 155 mph. As Andrew made landfall near Homestead, the eye wall was smaller and convection had increased. Andrew hit with a vengeance, as the small eye devastated anything in its path. Winds were reported to gust as high as 200 mph. This storm not only changed the landscape of South Florida, but it also changed the way insurance companies do business. Many insurers folded under the heavy load that Andrew caused. It was as if an atomic bomb went off. As the above example shows, a slow July does not mean we should write the season off. Storms can form suddenly and are often unpredictable.

Customizing new home helps with downsizing Associate news editor

WEST MELBOURNE – You can build a new home and still downsize. That’s what Gail France, a new home consultant for the West Melbourne location of Avtec Homes, tells her clientele. She also advises them to think carefully about what they want in a home, what they want to take with them and what their lifestyle will be. “If they’re downsizing, I ask them from what size home,” she said. “Then I ask if they plan on keeping any furniture. I tell them to take inventory of what they want to keep. It helps me determine what will work for them.” Ms. France said that it is important to decide whether this is the last home the client wishes to purchase. “I ask them if they are thinking longterm,” she said. “Do they need guard rails, wider doorways, a walk-in shower

and bath? We can customize the home for what’s important to them that they don’t want to give up, like the size of the bedrooms and closets or a fireplace.” Ms. France said that Baby Boomers, who are downsizing, have special concerns that may affect the number of bedrooms and bathrooms they need. “I ask if an elderly parent is going to live with them,” she said. “They may need rails and higher toilets. Someone may be moving back from college. They may have one room for them, one for a child and one for a parent. Parents are moving in with children and kids are moving back home.” “Years ago, people went for two bedrooms and one bath,” she added. “Nowadays, they’re buying three bedrooms and using (the extra bedroom) as an office or a TV room.” Ms. France also advises her clients to decide what level of monthly payments

they’re comfortable with, as a way to reduce stress later down the road. In addition, they need to consider how they plan to live, she said. “I ask if they want to cut the lawn or take care of a pool,” she said. “I also ask them about their hobbies and what activities are important to them. They need to decide if they want to live on the water, if they want a gated community, if they want a dog… there’s a lot to think about.” Ms. France said that many residents, who are coming from larger homes, opt for a great room instead of separate dining and living rooms, which helps keep the feeling of openness. But choosing what possessions to keep is not always easy, she added. “A lot of people coming from large homes have many keepsakes,” she said. “They may have a collection of cookie jars. When they’re downsizing, they

decide to keep the ones that are really special, ones that have touched the heart. When people come from a big home and things don’t fit, I have to remind them they’re downsizing. You have to make choices.” If people are considering condo living, Ms. France advises them to put their furnishings in storage and rent an apartment for six months. “Find out what a condo is like,” she said. “While you’re renting, you can take your time and decide if you like apartment living, if they miss the garage. You can check out areas where you want to live. It will help you make a better decision. Then, you will really know what furniture you miss and what you need.” Gail France is a new home consultant with Avtec Homes. Call (321) 7336014, or visit the website www.avtechomes.com.

Your safety is paramount... Know your surroundings! e touched on the tangibles of the insurance policy last month. As home insurance protects your assets from losses it is important to know how to protect you and your family from another type of loss, “crime of opportunity”. As a retired Police canine handler I can attest to many senseless crimes and the impact on their victims. Unfortunately many of these “crimes of opportunity” could have been prevented. First it is important to understand that most uniformed Police patrol units are in a reactive state. What this means is patrol units respond to calls, write reports, investigate prior crimes and are proactive when they have the opportunity to be. Reality is many departments are facing budget shortfalls and are forced to do more with less. When seconds count the Police are only minutes away! According to the 2010 statistics Brevard County had a population of just over a half a million people. The total crime index shows a slight decline over the last two decades in violent and property crimes. Violent crimes include Murder, Robbery, Aggravated Assaults and Sexual Offenses. Property Crimes include Burglary, Larceny and Motor Vehicle theft. This decline likely is a result of advances in Law Enforcement tools such as video and DNA collection. Other factors in the decline, especially property crimes is victims may not have reported the crime because they believe their case will not be solved or the crime was too “minor” in nature to report. So what can you do to protect you and your family? According to Scott Lindsley of Just Cause Tactical Training, LLC to lessen the probability of becoming a victim of a crime of opportunity there are many steps you can take to make your home and business less desirable to the criminal element. One way is by making it more difficult for the criminal to commit their offenses. Some examples are adding exterior lighting, alarms and upgrading locks to your home or business making it more difficult to enter. Utilizing a neighborhood watch program or a network of neighbors can be very beneficial. Simple steps such as making it a habit to lock your home and car every time you leave it can reduce the probability of an occurrence. Many car burglaries are committed because of

The simple theft of a wallet or purse can excel into a nightmare of fraudulent credit card usage or identity theft. It will take you many personal hours of compiling the necessary receipts and documents just to repair the damage to your bank account and credit history. Before you allow anyone into your home check their credentials. If you didn’t schedule the service or appointment it may not be legitimate. A reputable business will notify you prior to arrival. If you suspect someone is not credible contact the Police immediately. Note their description and any vehicles they may be driving. This information is crucial during a Police investigation. Your vigilance may stop you or your neighbors from being victimized! If it sounds too good to be true it probably is. Don’t be a victim of a scam! Scams are becoming more complex every day. Also be careful of what information you transmit over the internet. Most of the internet is not secure and subject to “phishing” (an attempt to obtain financial or confidential information from Internet users that mirror a legitimate organization but contain a link to a fake web site). Unless you initiated the contact, never give out personal information to someone you don’t know over the phone. If someone contacts you for your personal information question why and only handle these matters in person. If you see a crime being committed don’t approach or alarm the suspect(s). Call 911 immediately. Remember your safety is paramount. The key to safety is knowing your surroundings at all times. Many people get caught up using their cell phones or texting while walking or driving. Both can lead to disastrous results! Most criminals will attest to choosing their victims because they were not paying attention or appeared to be an easy target. Take the necessary steps now to protect you and your family.

Fibromyalgia and herbs he symptoms of fibromyalgia can be overwhelming for so many people, especially women. Aches and pains to muscles, joints and tendons all over the body, constant headaches, muscles that twitch, sleep problems, weight gain, depression, menstrual irregularities, a weakened immune system along with weakness and exhaustion. As of now, there is no conclusive cause of fibromyalgia. What might have started as a simple injury or virus may have triggered a response in the muscular and nervous systems leading to nerves that constantly over-fire throughout the body. There may also be a link to heavy metal toxicity, hormonal imbalances, improper absorption of nutrients, parasites, Candida or the

slow period to get your hurricane supplies and to make a plan in case another Andrew ever heads our way. For the greater part of July, our weather pattern has been fairly dry, due in part to a high-pressure ridge that has built over the region. This has helped to suppress the precipitation and thunderstorms. Some storms have been allowed to form, primarily where the sea breeze boundary forms during the afternoon hours. This is usually prevalent around the I-95 corridor, about 10 miles inland. This could change as we get into the latter part of July and early August. We are approaching the heart of the rainy season and the peak season for African tropical waves. Be sure to keep your eye to the tropics!

THE HERB CORNER disruption of pain receptors. Since fibromyalgia varies from person to person, herbs can be very effective because they work on symptoms specific for the individual. For instance anodyne herbs like turmeric, Jamaican dogwood, California poppy and wild lettuce can help to reduce pain. To help fight fatigue, Ginseng’s can help provide needed energy. Nutritive herbs like burdock, dandelion, nettle and oat straw provide the missing nutrients that may be needed. If there is a viral

Planning is important. You need to think about what it is you want from your home and your life for the next phase of it. Jenny Walker is a broker associate with Ellingson Properties.

Many athletes know the frustration of being sidelined by tendon disorders, like Achilles tendinitis and tennis elbow. In recent years, doctors have begun treating overused tendons with regenerative therapies that jump-start the body’s own healing process. One technique, a tenotomy, uses repeated needlesticks to break up scar tissue in the tendon, prompting the body’s own cells to begin the rebuilding process. Another technique is an injection of platelet-rich plasma (PRP), a concentrated dose of healing platelet cells that exist in the patient’s blood. In a recent study researchers reported that the combination of tenotomy and PRP injections produced significant improvement in patients with long-standing tendon injuries. The study included 34 patients with a wide range of tendon and soft tissue injuries, from rotator cuff tendinitis to plantar fasciitis, an inflammation on the bottom of the foot. In the first stage of the two-part

treatment, researchers used high-resolution ultrasound technology to guide a needle to the injured area, and the physicians repeatedly poked the tendon with the needle, inducing minor bleeding within the tissue. the needle breaks up nonhealing, degenerative tissue and induces bleeding, hopefully converting a chronic, degenerative injury into an acute injury that has healing potential. Afterward, patients received an injection of concentrated platelets from their own blood. The platelets release growth factors into the area to start the healing process. Researchers found maximum benefits tended to occur within four months after the procedure. More than 70 percent of patients had better use of their tendons, and 76 percent reported reduction of pain. In addition, researchers found some indication of tendon healing, which was detected with sophisticated ultrasound imaging.

Downsizing and styling: how to do them both Associate news editor

MELBOURNE – Kristy Brown of Design to Envy will stage a house for sale, but her love is helping clients organize their homes to make them more comfortable and attractive. She calls it, “staging for living.” “I will go in and look at what they have,” she said. “Then we can rearrange, get rid of things and take what they own and make it more suitable. Depending on their budget, I may recommend purchases, but I try to use what they have.” If people do have a little money to spend, Ms. Brown will suggest modernizing and updating the accessories and painting to change the look. She also offers a two-hour consultation for $125, which may be credited to other services. When people are getting ready to move to a smaller home, Ms. Brown will help them decide what possessions to

take. “People want to move all their furniture and move their exact home into a smaller one,” she said. “We try to spot things that are useful, have meaning or add beauty to the home. Scale and proportion are important and less is more. If the place is less crowded, it will feel larger.” Ms. Brown suggests going through each room and weeding out things like books, until you are just left with the furniture. “Evaluate each piece and decide which pieces you would be willing to part with,” she said. “Ask which pieces could be flexible and used as something else. You could use half a sectional sofa in one room and the other piece in the office. It doesn’t have to stay as it came. If you can start before you move, you have time to think about it, and it is less stressful.” In looking for a smaller home, Ms.

“What people don’t realize is that when a house is unorganized, it clutters your mind. It’s a good feeling to have less clutter.” Kristy Brown Design to Envy Brown tells her clients to look for an open space without a lot of walls. “They may have a great room, one large room open to the kitchen,” she said. “Choose an open floor plan with less walls and more windows and doors. It lets the light in, and feels larger and more open. A pale palette also makes a room look larger and keeps it light and bright.” Ms. Brown tells her clients to look at downsizing as a positive thing. “When you downsize, no matter what the reason, it gives you more freedom,” she said. “There’s less maintenance and clutter. You have more time to travel and relax and spend time doing

what you love. It forces you to keep what matters the most. What people don’t realize is that when a house is unorganized, it clutters your mind. It’s a good feeling to have less clutter.” Ms. Brown also said that building storage is often no more expensive than finding pieces in the store. “It’s hard to find the perfect piece,” she said. “Get a price on custom-made bookshelves that go from floor to ceiling. It’s not always a lot more money.” Kristy Brown offers design services in Brevard and Indian River counties. Call (321) 501-7178 or visit the website www.designtoenvy.com.

Uncovering the past: land and property records

L

and records are probably the leastutilized records for genealogy research. There are many different types of records kept, places to look, and information to be gleaned. It is not an easy task, but untangling land ownership could mean untangling your family history. From the time our country was formed, records have been kept on land ownership. Ninety-percent of the population’s adult white men owned land before 1850. These records come in the form of royal land grants, federal land grants, deeds, bounty land warrants, land lotteries, land patents, homesteads and property tax lists. A land grant, or land patent, is the first transfer of the property. This is the transfer of land from the government to an individual, so that if your ancestor received a grant or patent, he was the original private owner of that land. After that, the land was transferred between individuals though deeds. Bounty land warrants were pieces of land given free to veterans for payment for their service in the military. These were given between the Revolutionary War and the year 1855. These records can now be found with the military records via the National Archives and Records Administration, www.archives.gov. There were eight land lotteries held in Georgia to distribute land that was taken from the Indians. Eligible citizens placed their names in the lottery and paid a small fee. If their name was drawn, the winner took out a grant and paid a fee. If he did not do this, the lot was sold to the highest bidder. These lotteries were held between 1805 and 1832. Buying and selling of property has always been recorded in the courthouses. If the courthouse was destroyed, the deeds were almost always brought back and recorded again to maintain legal proof of ownership. The original document was always kept by the landowner, and was copied by the clerk. Always check the date of the record itself, and not the date it was

recorded. Often, it was not recorded or re-recorded until several years after it was originally signed. Information contained in these records is so varied, you never know what valuable tidbit or mass of information you may find. Starting with the names of the grantor and grantee, their place of residence will be listed. This will pinpoint an exact place and time where your ancestor lived. It may also tell where he lived previously. From there, the record will describe the tract of land, and may name adjacent landowners. They may be your typical neighbors, or they may be named as relatives. The document may list several other relatives such as spouse, parents and children. This would apply especially if this was part of an estate. Also note the witnesses, who may be related. Other amazing facts may be included for no apparent reason, such as how the land had been passed down through the family over the years. Here is your family tree! As you trace your family back through time, you should always include a search of their property. This will tell you not only how it was acquired, but also how it was disposed of at the end. Did he inherit it through his family or did he move from another location and buy it? How long did he own it? Did he sell it and move away? Was it left as an estate, upon his death, and divided among his family or sold at a sheriff’s sale to cover his debts? The amount of land he owned will give you an indication of his financial and social status. As you learn about his neighbors and neighborhood, you will find the nearest churches, schools, cemeteries, and relationships. You will begin to see a network See GENEALOGY, Page 14

form between these families as they intermarry and begin to migrate around the country together. As you find these records, and begin to locate the land on the plat map, you will become more interested in where these people actually lived in today’s world. Is it in the middle of a large city, possibly on a main thoroughfare? Maybe it is still in a rural area much like it was in his day. Is the house still standing, or the stream that is shown running through the property on the plat map still there? I have found in my family, what goes around, comes around. Several of my father’s relatives have migrated to the exact areas my mother’s ancestors lived 150 years ago. How odd, to know that they live right down the road from where my other ancestors lived, way back then. They may end up in the same cemetery. Brenda K.Smith BrendaKSmith@prodigy.net

link, turmeric, astragalus, licorice and St. John’s Wort can help to fight off further viral outbreaks. For reducing inflammation yucca, ginger, celery seed, angelica and wild mam may be the ones to choose from. There are also herbs like valerian, passion flower, lemon balm or skullcap that can help to fend off depression or insomnia that is linked to fibromyalgia. To help support the adrenal glands licorice, borage, astragalus, eluthero and ashwaganda can help keep you balanced during stressful situations that may be causing some of the

problems. Finally, there are herbs that can help to calm the nerve endings, easing neurological pain throughout the body. This would be herbs like Jamaican dogwood, California poppy, St. John’s Wort, skullcap and black haw. I have seen the incidence of this condition increase over the years, and I have seen how well herbs have eased the symptoms of fibromyalgia.
