Hi Mama,

I am very sorry to hear of your Mother's passing. She sounds like a wonderful woman, and we all know she raised a very loving, giving, gracious and thoughtful daughter. If you are a reflection of her, then we are all grateful to be able to benefit from the open mindedness we see shining through in you.

To Mama to Many;

Re Mother and her remedies.

Well, if she was anything like you she must have been a TIGER.

You have been such an inspiration to so many and your remedies are articulate and (I think) inspired. I know you read a lot and so you are able to extrapolate the very thing to help in particular situations.

It's wonderful to have a web site like this one: Earth Clinic where someone of your background and knowledge base can inform and help people from around the world. And you so obviously CARE about the person writing.

Our founder is also an inspiration and HER mother is fantastic (and Beautiful). Lucky me...I've personally gotten to meet them and YOU. Am even more of a fan of yours now. (Star struck...did you notice?) I'd love to take a COURSE on herbals from you one day. Or read a "Mama to YOU... BOOK of REMEDIES" in conjunction with EC. (Hey ... I like that title! .)

And don't get me started on MY mom...wow do I ever miss HER. Talk about a Tiger. (That's the side I get the Cherokee from. Must be the reason I'm so "into" this EC world! )

I know what you did to contribute during your mom's decline. You are... The GOOD Daughter. And that fits under the Commandment...to Honor our parents. The first with a promise; may it be so to you...A LONG AND HAPPY AND BOUNTIFUL life.

Your student (and friend),

d

Thank you for your kind and encouraging words. I was blessed with a great mother and continue to have the blessings of God, family, and friends, including those here at EC. Truly, "my cup runneth over."

Have a great day!

Dear Mama to Many - I am so sorry to hear of your Mom's passing. I agree with what the others have said so eloquently - you truly are a blessing to all of us. You have so much kindness, common sense and wisdom and you present it in such a way that everyone can understand and benefit. You must have been a great comfort to your Mom. And, now, we are fortunate to have you in the Earth Clinic family. "Tears heal, memories comfort and love lives on forever." Take care, Bess

Hi Mama to many......Just came on EC only to see the sad news of your Mom's passing. Please accept my deepest sympathy. I know exactly how you must have felt since I too lost my Mom a few years ago and still fight the sadness to this day. Take care of yourself and I will keep you in my prayers. God bless you for all your wonderful insights. You really light up Earth Clinic....I am sure others would agree with me on this. Have a blessed day.....

Lauren: Not to come off as antagonistic, but after having a few yrs experience, and reading 100's of Near Death reports (called NDE's but are actually beyond death experiences) then that sorrowful mentality gets a turnaround. Many of those NDE'rs report feeling absolutely no remorse while remotely viewing there damaged or sick body below. Many beg the sprits to not make them "go back down there". I lost my mom to cancer in 2009 but the suffering and passing was not so bad. Once, while mother was up in a wheelchair w/ family, I had a brief minds-eye realization (while looking at mom) that she was better off than us. Mother was an extremely giving & caring person and had no fear of dying, so her composure helped elicit my vision. Also, some of her last spoken words were "It's beautiful" while looking into the heavenly realms.

A good web-site for NDE info is http://iands.org/home.html.

Dear Mama to Many,

Whenever I am looking for some home remedy from EC, I find your remedy and I try them. I am always happy with the results. Now I have a specific problem, which I did not see here, so I need your help. Every year in winter, little exposure to cold and wind, I feel feverish next day when I get up in the morning. Moment I feel feverish, I immediatly boil some mixture of herbs, like dry ginger, cloves, black pepper, cinnamone, cumin etc and drink that tea and I feel better in a day or two. Sometimes I do take a Ibuprofen also. This time I feeling feverish frequently since October every now and then. I am trying most of the home remedy but evening I am ok again sometimes morning or afternoon I get that feeling. My day today life is affecting and making me worried. I am also missing sunlight for weeks together. If I go out without putting a tight cap on my head, I feel feverish, if I forgot my gloves I feel feverish. Please please help me.

Thanks a ton Mama to Many. I will try everything what you suggested above. I used to take 1000 IU of vit D earlier, for the past one month I changed to another supplement "bone health" which I realised yesterday that it has only 400 IU. So I started old supplement yday. I will start taking my herbal tonic every day now on. Feeling well and enegertic is very important in life than anything else. I post again stating that I am feeling well. Thank you once again.

Dear Mama to Many,

I will get my blood picture done to see what vitamin deficiency is there. One thing I forgot tell, that I am also feeling it may be arthrities problem. Do a person get fever if he/she has arthirities? As per Ayurvedic, diognosis, I am "vata" type person for whom wind and cold can make hovoc with their health. and I am in windy and cold city.

Dear Mama to many,

I am 66 years old and don't do much exercise. I am also heavy. Yesterday I had a very bad fall and felt my left arm a shoulder pull and I also heard a crunch sound. When I got up I started to stretch my arm a little, it hurt but did it for a couple of minutes. I didn't know what to do so I drank a hot cup of Comfrey leaves. I know it supposed to help your digestion but I felt it might also help with the fall I had. Did not go to the doctor because they will bother me with my high blood pressure. I also put hot towel with comfrey tea on it. Then showered with cold water and a cold pack on my shoulder. Can you help me with anything else? I know tomorrow will be bad for me because that is when the pain gets worse. Thank you and God bless you!
