Drink half glass of water, with a pinch of Baking Soda added to it. Follow it for a month. This will help to get rid of Acid reflux. For Hypertension, buy tincture of Giloy ( Tinospora Cordiflia ) 5 drops in a glass of water for 15 days and keep a check on your blood pressure readings. For dizziness and palpitation, you should consult your doctor and get yourself checked for Heart Disorders.

I think you would get more results from buying the leaf online and use it as tea or a drink . I would not recommend mixing them together with other vitamins. drink the tea alone as soon as you wake up or going to bed at nights. you can make it into a brew and leave it overnight with the leaves in it and strain in the morning and drink it first thing one cup .I usually get the leaves from a herbal store on etsy from a store name fromjamaicawithlove or you can go there and type in guava leaves cannot paste the link here for some reason

What is the recommended number of guava leaves for curing high blood pressure and heart problem. I learnt guava leaves contain antioxidants which help in removing toxins and free radicals from the body. I need the dosage for high blood pressure, high cholesterol and heart related issues. Though I take garlic, sour sop leaves tea and guava leaves tea everyday but I want to know whether to continue or stop.

Please , am using guava leave extract to treat cholesterol but each time I take it I usually spot blood tho am on implant family planning. please what's the cause and what can be done. Thanks
19 Mar 2019
Guava leaves tea reduces blood clot and one of the side effects of implant family planning, is irregular menstruation and bleeding, so the guava leaves, having the properties of reducing blood clot, causes u to spot blood. My advice, don't take it again until you remove your implants.

How can I use guava to cure insanity?
05 Aug 2019
Hey Peace. Guava is extremely rich in Vitamin C. It contains Vitamin B3 and Vitamin B6. It can't be used as a single herb to treat Insanity.
It helps in improving the blood circulation to the Brain. Guava can be used to stimulate cognitive functioning and relax the nerves. Please read the link below for Insanity: https://herbpathy.com/Herbal-Treatment-for-Insanity-Cid3962

How can I use guava leaves to get rid of kidney stones and inflamed fimbriae ( hydrosalpinx). How long can I use it?
15 Jan 2020
Dear Anastecia Guava is good for Kidney stones. However, follow the regimen below to get rid of stones.
1. Drink Horse Gram soup daily. But please be cautious while taking, as it has hot potency. Discontinue the use if it does not suit you.
2. Buy the root powder of Boerhavia Diffusa from a Homeopathy store. Take it for 1 month.
3. Stone Breaker. Buy it from any all spices and herb stores. Boil it and drink it. Take it for 20 days.
The above-mentioned remedies may help to break the stone and flush them out through urine.
4. Add 1 tablespoon of Apple Cider Vinegar in a glass of water. Have it twice a day.
Add Dandelion to your diet.
Write back after a month.
