Lavender Essential Oil for Bruising and Impact Injuries

A few years ago, friend told me that a large ceramic water urn fell off a table onto her big toe. It immediately started to change colour and the pain was incredible. Someone had a bottle of lavender essential oil with him and told her to apply that straight away. She placed it all over and under her toe and shortly the colour started to return to normal and the pain receded. She had no bruising and no more pain!

Shortly after, I seriously jammed my finger, right on the nail. It was already turning blue when I applied lavender oil and to my delight, the pain receded and instead of the whole nail being blue, I had one spot about the size of a pin-head. I applied the oil three times during that day only. There was no pain or pressure on the finger at all after the first application.

One day, I was talking with a friend and we heard a bang and a heavy metal door had slammed on her 10 year-old daughter's finger. She was in a great deal of pain and was crying bitterly, hardly able to breath. I asked her and her mum if they would mind if I put some lavender oil on it. They happily agreed. It is so good, I carry it in my handbag wherever I go. I took out my little bottle and I applied it all around the impact site, top and bottom. It was already blue but within a few minutes she said it was feeling a lot better and off she went to play with the other children. That afternoon, before I left, I put some more on it and by that time, it wasn't blue and she smiled as she said it wasn't hurting any more.

I have read the comments on lavender oil causing breast enlargement in young boys, but I also read opposing comments that pointed out that this came from bad science and assumptions and therefore not a sound enough reason to "throw out the baby with the bathwater", in this case, the Godsend, lavender essential oil.

I have used it also for burns from boiling water, steam, oven trays, hot cast iron pans, etc. Each time it has removed the pain and prevented blisters or removed those which had already formed.

It is truly amazing!!!

Mark from the UK you are thinking of Diatomaceous Earth, not Bentonite Clay which is a swelling clay. Calcium is for internal and Sodium is external. Drink plenty of water when taken internally. You start with a small amount to see how you react. Too much and you can have a severe detox reaction. When using the clay do not use metal spoons or bowls as the clay will absorb the metal and become ineffective.

Hwkmn,,,,,,,, you have a point about temporarily taking prescription drugs, and that is the reason I'm taking Cartizem that my cardiologist prescribed.

However, let me elaborate a little more about my situation. I have the O2 and pulse device that goes on your finger. When I am waked at night I use this to see what my pulse and O2 level is. I explained to my sleep doctor that I thought I stopped breathing and my O2 was bottoming out so my heart was going into A Fib. He said it was more likely the opposite.

After my night at the sleep lab, he then admitted that I was right. I then went back to the sleep lab to use a C pack and see the doctor Thursday to get the results . Both sleep technicians had been in the business for over 15 years each and said that almost all who solve their sleep apnea also solve their A Fib.

I truly appreciate your input and concern. If you had followed my ails over the years you would know that I research until I get the last squeal out of a pig. I also listen to people who are sincere and you are.

Hi, I've had h pylori since childhood, for several years I have been severely affected suffering notable deficiency of b12 and blood iron levels amongst many other symptoms, I have managed to adjust my diet enough to improve and control symptoms well enough to carry out serious research.

I also noticed that when I eat Japanese umboshi plum it instantly makes me feel 'good' inside' my palate also changed quite immediatel. I looked this up and discovered that it is indeed powerful against h pylori.

After thorough research I have ordered ingredients for preparation including but not exclusive of propolis and mastic gum, as I have discovered knowledge to indicate them as being most efficient at eradicating h pylori, at 1 gram 3 times a day with a diet free of carbohydrates and processed foods, after min 2 weeks max 6 weeks for complete treatment.

For extra fool proof I shall include plum and colloidal silver which I have found to help. Also I shall be constructing to teas to help detox liver and kidneys to aid elimination of toxins and reduce die off symptoms and discomfort.

I shall return with updates on recipes and how they work for me, along with any side effects I find in my observations.

Seeking Natural Remedies for Cervical Polyp

Mon, 05 Dec 16 11:01:49 -0800
Posted by Originalcindy (Atlanta, Ga ) on 12/04/2016

About two years ago my Dr removed a small polyp from my cervix. He told me that there was a 50% chance that it may grow back. Low and behold it did and now it has grown through to the opening of my Vagina. Does anyone know of any treatment I can try to get rid of it? I would rather do it naturally then have it surgically removed.

ACV is a great topical for sciatica and foot and leg cramps. Works almost instantly. Didn't see this suggestion on your app info. Try it it works. Just pour some in the palm of your hand and apply.

Hello I am suffering from perioral dermatitis. I have had it for about 10 weeks. Have been to my gp and he gave me rozex which I used for 2 weeks which worked but then came to a standstill. I then read up and found this site and have been using apple cider vinegar for a week which does seem to be working but it is still very red And sore and seems to have spread around my eyes? It's really starting to get me down and I feel very self conscious. I have cancelled a lot of social plans as I'm terribly embarrassed. Please let me know if there's anything else I can do or if I'm just been impatient. Thanks Lizzy

I know I'm late but just in case you're still suffering try garlic. Garlic is known to kill bacteria that's resistant to antibiotics. I had the same issue as you. I started eating two to three cloves of garlic a day. I would dice up a clove and swallow it down like a pill. Within a day I noticed improvement. Three days in I was soooo much better. I now eat garlic routinely as a preventative and haven't had any issues since.

Lovely to read your msg. It gives me confidence that I will be able to write the same in 2 years time. I have just started using coconut oil 3 days ago with serious intention. I am 60yrs now having 1 seizure approx. every 10 days. the meds don't work and I hate the side-effects, especially now that I am getting older. What got you started? Did you need to add MCT oil also & why have you added the vitamins. You mention about a diet change, What did you alter it? It'll be great to communicate with you to share experiences, positive & negative.

Thanks Michele

Any results? I hope you are doing better. I had a meningioma resection in 2001; just found out that I have a new one growing on the edge of the original tumor site. I am taking boswelia; although a much larger dose than your are taking, as well as turmeric, CBDs and essiac tea. I am considering doing Gerson on top of it all.

Robert, yes rat poison as it was invented for, is a terrible med with some long lasting side effects known and unknown, such as dementia. As a short term med, it can be a life saver. Im not totally anti med as much as Im anti symptom treatment. Never getting to the root cause or having any interest in doing so for the sake of the almighty dollar, is most likely what is in the heart of allopaths. Some may pretend to believe meds heal us, but in reality, they refuse many they prescribe. I would research Natto a bit more if I were you however, or at least be tested to make sure it is doing what it is supposed to do. Ive heard that it is not a proven thinner per se. Magnesium can thin also, but to what degreee a persistent afibber needs, Im not certain.

However, the way you are treating your apnea is not a cure, but once again ignoring a larger issue in your system, low oxygen in your blood. Forcing air down into your lungs is not going to cure anything, tho you may sleep better. It may not address afib either, its about 50/50. Not to be contentious here because were all in the same boat looking for answers, but there are risks with this condition we need to be aware of when relying on opinions not proven.

Larry. First make some efforts on improving indoor air quality. The amino acid NAC is good for reducing mucus. Nebulizing Colloidal Silver will kill the bacterial infection in the lungs.

HJ: I am not aware of this occurring from any personal reports, and doesn't seem logical it would.

My gut tells me it's a gut issue (pun intended). We know oral Vit-C is poorly absorbed, and even with a healthy gut, but if there is infection, parasites, and/or leaky gut, oral Vit-C would be a problem.

Try some buffering remedies for a few days and then try buffered Vit-C. If paras or infection is suspected try Oil of Oregano before meals. Also incorporated Milled Flax Seed into diet to make for some gentle colon cleaning. Lipospheric Vit-C is best and one can achieve therapeutic results in cases of major illnesses, unlike oral standard C. Colloidal Silver is also effective for all types of pathogens.

Always good to read your post and hope this helps, let us know.

I have had bronchiectasis for 2 years. Got it from a Nocardia Bacteria. The main problem I have is extreme coughing and tremendous amount of heavy mucus. I have tried many things but as yet not found anything that helps. I would really appreciate any comments you can share witlh me as to what you did to get good results.


Beyond ACV, Cayenne, and Magnesium for Arrhythmia

Beyond ACV, cayenne, and magnesium...

I have had severe and intense arrhythmia for a few years now, all starting when I entered the menopausal change. It is quite common for many women to develop heart symptoms of all sorts. Well, I totally rejected the offered beta blockers (M.D.'s solution), and started looking to the wonderful and healing world of herbalism. Several cardiac tonics are available that work fast and immensely reliably. Motherwort would be the star of them all. In tincture form (as an infusion far too bitter! ) it can be taken everywhere and used in a 'heartbeat' if needed. 15 to 30 drops in a little water, one or a few times a day. Motherwort has many more benefits to women of ALL ages. I am a witness to its reliability and complete safety. For all women out there who are also experiencing their menopausal years, I HIGHLY recommend reading Susun Weed's book, Menopausal years The Wise Woman Way.

With the information and wisdom in this book I have approached even my N.D.s, and told THEM what I needed. Also, including very nourishing and with minerals loaded stinging nettle infusion (this is not a weak casual tea but a highly medicinal infusion of herb) supports the function of the heart (and the entire body), without dishing out a fortune for supplements. I do, however, supplement with RnA Remyte and ReMag on most days of the week. I determine the correct dosage for me each time I use it, with the help of my pendulum, as the daily needs vary. That saves a lot of money when you need exactly when and how much or little you actually need, as opposed to blindly following a protocol that is geared to the broad masses (yes, naturopaths usually work the same way as M.D.s, prescribing not what the individual needs, but what a certain protocol demands).

So, motherwort (leonorus cardiaca), nettle infusion (urtica dioica, see Susun Weed's books), ReMag and ReMyte, NOT skipping meat as it contains heme (there is not a single plant on this planet containing it), important for red blood cell formation and support of too many functions in the body to mention, but mostly iron supply.

I also learned that low ferritin levels (iron storage, NOT serum levels) can contribute or even cause heart arrhythmia. However, all that being said, we must remember that the heart is much, much more than a physical organ, and a vast variety of emotional issues or imbalances (anger, fear...) regularly trigger arrhythmia (I had a horrifying experience at one dentist where I considered not making it out alive there anymore; I went through 2,5 hours non stop intensely irregular heartbeat, did all I could and took my tinctures, did pranayama, had essential oils with me (ylang ylang, spikenard, lavender, marjoram, vetiver... just a few for arrhythmia), and absolutely nothing helped the situation. I prayed in the chair (mentally), I started crying, was very upset about the complete lack of compassion nor understanding from the dentist (he should never be let loose on the public), and realized that fear alone (in this case of the man himself as his energies were very dense and low) was the trigger that time.

The reality is, with heart arrhythmia there is no single cause, so it makes sense, to approach the 'problem' from more than one angle. I also do regular Dead Sea salt baths (26 oz per full bath).

As far as ACV goes, I find it way too acidic to take orally, even when diluted, and it has the potential to destroy tooth enamel. Not worth it to me. From an energetic perspective, in support of the heart there are a variety of crystals to use, such as red jasper, green aventurine, emerald, just to name a few. Working with crystals, however, is also a rather intuitive undertaking, and requires some understanding of the crystals themselves, how to use them, for how long, etc. The latest thing I incorporated to get the arrhythmia under control was/is homeopathy. I found an amazing doctor who practices traditional homeopathy (as opposed to those who use it more casually with little understanding of the matter). Great success thus far!!!!!

I am very certain that there are a myriad more solutions out in this world for arrhythmia, many of which the western world has never thought of perhaps. There are also insanely great ways from various types of energy medicine available. It all depends on the individual response of the person to any particular treatment (Acupuncture did absolutely nothing for me). I feel it is important to approach the matter in a holistic way as possible, physical, emotional, and working through the various layers of the energetic body. There is an amazing book out there, that everyone should have on their shelf: THE HEART SPEAKS by Mimi Guarneri, M.D., FACC. I hope I could provide the reader with more solutions than the three mentioned in the headline. Be well:)
