Green Onions for Sore Throats

I was having a problem with a sore, red and painful throat. I tried cayenne, a strong colloidal silver spray and salt. I used these separately and jointly. I used them through gargling and with a neti pot. They helped for a part of a day, then I would feel that pain again. This is what worked for me: 2 bunches of green onions tossed into a blender with just enough water to get a pudding consistency. I would "gargle" with this 3 times a day. That means I would kind of pour it in the back of my throat, make some gargling sounds and then spit it out. It worked when all else failed. Onions are known for being antibacterial and green onions seem to be the most potent.

Sina, keep going. The mole is beginning to come apart. It will probably gradually slough off.

Goldenseal and Castor Oil for Painful Bartholin Cyst

I apply a salve of powdered goldenseal from a capsule or two and castor oil to a swollen bartholin cyst. You can also use evening primrose oil as it is also anti-inflammatory or olive oil. You put it on some toilet tissue which has been folded over or some of those square or rounded cotton squares. I just use toilet paper now. It should be a little runny but not so it will run off of the tissue, meaning you do not want a dry salve, nor a runny one. Something in between. The oil carries it into the skin underneath. Apply it to the swollen gland and then put on a pair of old panties that you don't care about to hold it in place, since goldenseal stains. Then I apply a heated rice bag as the heat hurries the process along, but I have done this also without the heat when I have been away from home.

Overnight this will kill the infection and relieve your pain. I would always use two capsules on one that is inflamed and hurting. It has hurt on occasion, but not swollen and when I can feel it, I apply it at night.

A low grade infection can give one insomnia, which it does for me if I don't treat it when my gland is telling me that it isn't happy. After you kill the infection, it will eventually drain.

Hi Michelle,

N.Z.Manuka honey, has been hailed as a wonder product for many years. Unfortunately, some unscrupulous people have climbed on the band wagon. They try to get "a slice of the action" as the stuff sells for SO much more than regular honey, which does not apparently have the "X factor"! N.Z. was a bit slow to implement standards and was too trusting that people would do the decent thing and NOT misrepresent products that were not up to scratch. Ha! However, you can now source Manuka honey that should state that it is the genuine article and have that claim backed up by conforming to a national standard.I would recommend a product by the C-----A, company from New Zealand, but there will be others also.Good luck with your quest and check out carefully before you buy!

In response to the black tea and peppermint tea bags! They drew the infection and I no longer look like I have an egg stuck in my cheek/jaw! The pain is minimal, there is still swelling and pain but relief. I will continue and start putting garlic on it and hopefully get a good night's sleep! Thanks everyone! Whew.

Barley water stops diarrhea super fast. Thank you. Isn't that a good thing when anti-diarrheal meds are supposed to be avoided? I know, it's food, so way healthier.

Dear Robert Henry,

Thank your wife for the information and you for passing it along. I am excited to know there is a brand of flour on grocery store shelves that is unbleached and unbromated. I will look for it next time I run out of the kind I get from the health food store.

Well, I do have a garden, but you can garden circles around me, I am sure. :) But I am learning and my kids are, too. I sure wish I had paid better attention when my dad had a garden when I was a girl. I grew up in the suburbs and our yard was small but Dad always grew lettuce, tomatoes, onions and beautiful roses. I remember my mom sending me out to the garden for lettuce and tomato for a salad with our dinner.

Kids are little naturalists. My four year old brings me pieces of plants or herbs and can properly identify many of them. None of us are too young or too old to learn!

Aloe Vera for Acid Reflux and Vocal Issues

I sang in church for many years. Slowly began to loose my range and general vocal ability. Also began to have acid reflux. Now after 15 years of issues, I am singing again and also sleeping at night without the reflux. The only thing I am doing is drinking about one-half cup of pure aloe Vera juice before bed and repeat in morning. I can even eat again during the evening hours - even close to bedtime. Several others in our family recommended this to me. They had been cured of reflux and were so excited. This is a godsend.

Hi Steve,

Try drinking 2 oz of extra virgin olive oil mixed with 2 oz lemon juice, followed by the largest glass of water you can possible hold. If this is a stone it may soften and pass. You may need to do more than once.

  Eggplant Patties Recipe for Liz in Boston

Fri, 24 Jun 16 14:34:59 -0500
Posted by Robert Henry (Ten Mile, Tn.) on 06/24/2016

HI U LIZ,,,,,,,

Here is her recipe and her photo follows. Don't mean to turn this into a Julia Child's cooking show.

Eggplant Patties

Peel eggplant and quarter. Boil until done. DRAIN WELL. (I've found that taking the potato masher and squeezing out the water works the best).

Mash and add:

* 1 egg
1 sleeve original Ritz crackers, crushed
salt and pepper and a goodly amount of garlic powder
FINELY minced onion
grated cheddar cheese

* The ratio of ingredients depends on the size of the eggplant.

Mix all together. Drop by tablespoons into preheated skillet and fry. (I add just a bit of olive oil to the skillet in order to season the pan and to help them brown). Cook on one side, turn and flatten out like a pancake. Cook till brown on each side.

They are not good reheated. In order to avoid waste, I only cook what we will eat, refrigerate the rest and cook within a few days. Do not drain the liquid. Re-Mix and cook as you would the originals.

John, so sorry to hear of your new difficulties. I just thought I might add a note of encouragement to all of you suffering from ET. My husband has been continously on the same supplements since before my first post - and continues tremor free. We are truly thankful. It is, without a doubt expensive, but works, and he has had no ill effects. I will say that the remedy worked fairly quickly (within a few weeks he noted improvement). So, it is possible that other causes of tremor will not respond as well. We have been too chicken to discontinue to see what might happen! My best to you all.

Eliminating Sugar Made Plantar Warts Disappear!

Years ago I had plantar warts all over my feet. They were gross and I remember once going tubing down the Saco in Maine and being so embarrassed because everyone could see them. And to top it off they're so painful. I had a surprise cure for mine. I gave up refined sugar completely for another reason altogether and a by-product of that is every single one of the warts disappeared in a matter of a month and never came back.

Hi Schautzie, I hope you feel better today. I wanted to address your issues in a practical way so others may understand that without lifestyle changes, many of the natural therapies on this site, for the long term are band-AIDS. Mono-therapy is useless unless other health promotion activities are consistently in play. Here is where I would start. I use this list as my own personal health foundation. I'm a healthcare professional and understand, that without foundational changes, my efforts are useless.

1. Cut out ALL processed foods. Figure out what whole foods you enjoy - learn how to prepare them. Make it fun! Challenge yourself to learn how to prepare wholesome food.

2. Exercise 30 minutes a day. Do something you enjoy. Yoga, walking, Pilates. I enjoy my total gym 20 min a day plus high intensity interval training 3 times a week for 20 minutes.

3. No processed sugar. Period.

4. Find 3 or 4 medical/naturopathic MDs/NDs or researchers and follow their guidelines to help you develop your own personal wellness plan. I use Dr. Carolyn Dean, Dr. Andrew Saul, Dr. Mercola plus use and the

5. Get as many chemicals out of your house and use organic alternatives.

6. Use as a place to ask questions to the life- long health experts and the world.

7. Be kind to yourself, but be real. self awareness is key.

Dear, this is just the beginning of your transformation to wellness! Write out your own personal wellness plan. You can do it!

I am using castor oil with baking soda since two weeks but there is a small hole I noticed on the mole. Should I continue with the procedure or is there is something serious happening?
