Remedy: Chamomile
Cured: Viral Conjunctivitis

I bought teabags with chamomile flowers listed as the only ingredient.

I boiled around 1 cup of water, then floated the teabags in there for about 2 minutes and removed from heat.

Allowed the tea to cool until it was just warm to the inside of my wrist. Then I dipped cotton balls 1 time only per piece into the tea and used this to remove the "gunk". Next, I took the teabags while still warm and placed them over my eyes and covered them with a clean towel.

This seemed to soothe the swelling of my eyelids and dried up a lot of the discharge.

I had this condition for about 4 days and was using antibiotic drops until I went to an opthalmologist who diagnosed it as viral. That's the point where I stopped using drops and started using the teabags. I have been doing this for a day and a half and my eyes are pink instead of red with just a little discharge now, and no more swelling, pain, or itchiness. I feel like I will probably be completely over this by tomorrow.

I used the acv and it works but I have a hint for people with winter scalp (flaky tight scalp). Steep 2 bags of chamomile tea in 2 cups warm water for 10 minutes. Add a dash of lemon juice and 15 drops of calendula (marigold) extract then pour onto scalp and let sit for 10 minutes and shampoo and condition as normal. I have done this 2x a week wince winter set in and it is perfect. No more flaking or redness.

Stomach Spasms, Nausea, Sleep

Chamomile capsules are great for stomach spasms and nausea. I also found that if I take 2 capsule 30 minutes before going to sleep, I get t a great night of sleep. Taking capsules is better than drinking a cup of strong tea at night so I don't have to get up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom.

I found also with chamomile tea its greatest effects are after you use the tea bag and squeeze the liquid out it's great to put the tea bag on one eye then the other as it cleans and strengthens the eyes. Good Luck.

Chamomile Side Effects

For all those who have Enuresis, I can state as fact that even if you take medication to control your enuresis, Chamomile Tea will overpower that medication, and should not be taken. If you have anxiety, or need help getting to sleep, try other sources, because Chamomile Tea, at least for me, makes me really go.

Upset Stomach

I'm responding to the claim that black tea cures an upset stomach. Whenever I drink black tea, I always develop painful gas and bloating and sometimes diarrhea. My grandmother said she has the same problem and that it may be caused by tannins in the tea. Maybe some people just aren't able to break down the chemicals? What does help me when i get a "gas attack" is to get on my knees and stick my butt in the air, focusing on relaxing my abdominal muscles. The posture is a bit ridiculous, but it does help expel the gas after a couple minutes. For an upset stomach, i make a tea of grated ginger, chamomile or mint or a combination. To that I add organic milk and honey.
