    I'm very uncomfortable with the thought of taking any prescribed medication to help VS - anyone know of any holistic or herbal remedies that are supposed to help? I hear acupuncture can do wonders however it's a little costly for me

    I completely agree with you Nicola. I am very prone to side effects and get them often in a worse way than the condition the medication is treating. I have also been searching out treatments. I've had vs for a few years now, but only very very recently discovered what it is, therefore I haven't tried anything yet. But I am curious what responses may come to your question.

    Evening Primrose Oil - for depression.

    http://www.amazon.com/Foods-Super-Primrose-1300Mg-Softgels/dp/B0018O8IQA/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1432118064&sr=8-1&keywords=super primrose oil

    Though this doesn't treat my VS symptoms exactly, it does help me so much with my mood and keeping my head up on those days when I could start to get down. I noticed a huge difference a couple of weeks into taking it daily and think it's at least worth a try if you're struggling with fluctuating moods/emotions. It's also just in general freaking awesome for skin/hair/nails/everything. ( :

    Hi All, I just want to ask if anyone ever tried using medical cannabis as an alternative meds? I have read many articles about medical marijuana and how it can help you in terms of chronic pain, glaucoma, eating disorder/anorexia, anxiety disorders and panic attacks, inflammation, even cancer and a lot more. Like this article about a marijuana strain:Chocolate Chunk from:http://www.ilovegrowingmarijuana.com/chocolate-chunk/ . Cbd and thc are also new to me and I don't even smoke. If this is true I cant find any solid conclusive evidence that speaks to its efficacy. Any personal experience or testimonial would be highly appreciated. Thanks
