Well, I'm trying the Black Cohosh. My friend got some 540mg capsules, and I emptied 6 into a cup of boiling water after I removed it from the heat. I let the infusion steep until cool and strained it through a coffee filter.
I rubbed a wet-finger full around her mouth three times, and she was quiet all night. She's still wriggly, and I don't know yet if it's working. I'm going to give a report in about 3 days, but I wanted to get down what I did and how I did it before I forgot.
If we can get her body responding better, she will be able to concentrate on cuddling, eating and playing with everyone else. Her life will be much fuller.
