When I read about the Apple cider vinegar cure for toenail fungus, I was so excited but I knew I did not have time to soak my toe for 30 minutes two times a day. My life is very busy and so I decided to do the next best thing. I saturated the gauze of a Band-Aid and more the Band-Aid all day long. At night, I took the Band-Aid off, Took a shower, and at bedtime, I put another Band-Aid on my toe saturated in apple cider vinegar! It worked beautifully after two months! I recommend this for anyone on the go!
My son was in the woods building a fort with his friends. He came in and said his chin was stinging. He had not been bitten, but thought perhaps he had brushed against a stinging nettle plant. It must have been bad for him to come in; he is usually pretty tolerant. I couldn't see any issue on his skin.
I gave him 1/4 teaspoon nettle tincture in a little water. I had him hold it in his mouth for several seconds before swallowing. The relief came very quickly.
I don't know if it was nettle that he touched or something else. But Nettle tincture should work for its own sting, plus allergic reactions to all kinds of other plants and irritants. One son used nettles daily for a year for allergies. After that time his reactions to poison ivy were much less.
Hmm..I don't think I have used nettle tincture for poison ivy before. I will have to try it out. I am sure one of my children will get into some soon; they seem to be good at finding it even though I am the poison ivy police around here.
To make nettle tincture, I put the dry nettle leaf in a jar and cover with vodka. Let it sit for 2 weeks. Strain out the leaves with a coffee filter. The resulting tincture will last for years. It is wonderful to have on hand.
Hello, this sounds like really good advice, although I'm new to this and couldn't figure out exactly what you mean, if you have a moment could you explain a bit more how you do it? Thank you! Warmly, Lindsay, London
A friend gave me 5 days of amoxicillian 500 mg. I took 2 on Monday morning and 1 every six hours (this is the 3rd day today). I tried the teabag, hot water soaks even tried ACV but no relief. Face is still very swollen. Back to putting the warm teabag on gum around tooth this morning but am wondering how will this infection come out? I am flat broke and know a dentist won't take me. Any info you can give me will be greatly appreciated. For two days I had a fever of 102 to 103 which seems to have broken. Help!!
Early this month, I developed a breast cyst infection severe enough that, had it not been for the July 4th holiday week, I would have headed to a doctor. The infection happened in a cyst that lies along my bra line and after reading and watching a video to learn the Allopathic treatment, I combed through Earth Clinic and decided to try self treatment. The two tools I used were cabbage leaves and Logul's Iodine.
Had I gone to a doctor, I would have been given a course of antibiotics, followed by a return visit to lance and drain the cyst. I had a house full of family coming to spend their vacations with us, so I started out by putting a cabbage leaf over the breast and wearing it in my bra. This provided complete ease through all the days of the infection and no one ever noticed it through my shirt or detected anything wrong. I thank the Lord for those leaves. Beneath the cabbage leaf, the tenderness and redness only increased daily. Things looked bad, and Mr. Iowa begged me to let him take me to the hospital. Twice a day, I was wiping the cyst with Logul's on a cotton ball, because I had read it would make it's way into the cyst, but the infection was only increasing. I finally decided to put a cotton ball soaked in Logul's onto the cyst and to wear it under the leaf inside my bra. I did that for half an hour and that was a bit too long, because it caused the upper layer of skin to peal off! Now I was really in pain…but not when I wore the cabbage leaf protection. Within hours of removing that cotton ball, the cyst turned very angry and began forming a head. 2 days later, it popped and spilled out much of the contents, but all was contained by the leaf. There was no scent of infection in it. I only knew it had popped when I went to check on it. I applied a bit of pressure and got more out, although it was too painful to squeeze out completely, as I had seen the doctor do on the video. I applied hydrogen peroxide with a cotton ball to keep the area clean and changed the leaf as needed. The healing began so quickly that I could not believe it. The wound continued to drain for a few days, and the leaf caught everything. I saw a piece of thin white tissue sticking up from it and I assumed that was part of the cyst's sack, so I pulled it off. I had plenty of fresh leaves in the refrigerator to keep the wound covered. I am healed now, and the cyst seems to be gone as well.
I have Mama to Many's castor oil cure and a heating pad here, if it should reappear. I am scolding myself for being lazy with this cyst and letting it grow again, but going through this process of rapid and successful self-treatment was deeply satisfying.
Try oregano oil and apply it directly on the teeth. Do it several times a day. Also take 1 tbs of baking soda and 1 tbs of sea salt mixed very good and after you brush your teeth put the tooth brush on that solution and brush your teeth, it will take about 3 weeks to see some changes, make sure to dilute oregano oil with olive oil.
Good news from you - exciting to hear that you are having progress! I am sure your dietary changes are helping, too.
Usually when its seems like what I am doing is working, even if slowly, I keep at it.
You might cut back some on the tea tree oil. Maybe 5 drops for each Tablespoon castor oil would work? Castor oil alone may work. I just don't like to use an essential oil long term if it isn't needed because they are so strong and can have side effects.
Have you tried the enzyme supplement serrapeptase? Or perhaps you could add pineapple to your diet because of the enzyme bromelain.
Thanks for updating! I am hopeful that your solution here is going to work completely for you!
I take Omega 3 oil for my chronic dry eye syndrome.
My eye doctor wanted to put me on Restasis and also maybe put plugs in my tear ducts. I went home and did a research on the net. In Sweden (where I'm from originally) there was clinical studies done proving the O3 oil does work. I had some at home, but stopped taking it as I didn't like the fishy taste. I found someone who suggested to take them just before going to bed. I did and the next morning was such a change!!! So, now I do this every night! I do still have to watch what I eat to avoid too acidic food as that has an effect.
I just want to ask if you shouldn't blink only when switching to other eye or during the whole exercise because I understood as you shouldn't blink durin the whole exercise which would be painful because 90 seconds is a long time to not blink (sorry if it's a stupid question)
Dear Mama to Many, wanted to update you that im starting to see slight positive effects. Last week was good, started to smell. But now although last two days have been difficult. All said and done I cant thank you enuff, after almost 2 weeks of anosmia I could finally smell my toddler sons body lotion. I used to apply him everyday after bath as I get him ready for school, after 2 full months I could smell it, I had tears in my eyes and only gratitude and blessings for you and God.
Basically I went to the ent a couple of weeks back and learnt that actually there were polyps on both sides of the nose and I could see them in the endoscopy.
I started to administer 3 drops of castor oil + tea tree oil mixture ( 1 tablespoon castor oil + 15 drops of tea tree oil) in each of the nostrils twice a day. That has helped to reduce the polyp size and help in breathing better from the nose. Mornings are better, feel fresher and breathing better, but the ac in office is so strong it causes blockage so I have told them to reduce the blow. Ive been applying your technique for a little over 2 weeks now.
Also I am inhaling steam with tea tree oil drops twice a day. Its been a month now of doing that, steam softens the nasal passages I believe.
Plus one tea spoon of castor oil upon waking up. Diet consists of fruits like oranges, mangoes, pineapples, red grapes and raw onions, cabbages, sweet potatoes. Completely cut out wheat, chocolates, cookies etc for nearly over two months now. Have started to do cardio workouts too in order to improve my breathing and stamina. That is helping a bit too. Hopefully want to start pranayama breathing like anu lomvilom and kapalbhati once the sinuses feel a little more open.
Any other things you think I should be doing?
Also how long should I do the castor oil + tto therapy? Till the polyps completely subside?
Final push will now be needed from what you suggest. I'm really now wanting a normal life Mama to Many.
This is just my opinion but I would first eliminate the magnesium citrate and take magnesium oxide. Magnesium citrate caused me frightening heart irregularities and it took awhile for my heart to calm down after I stopped taking it.
Magnesium is supposed to regulate body temperature but I don't know what other binders, fillers or capsules you may be taking. Capsules alone can raise your body temperature. They can contain 11-14 mg. of MSG. Hidden sources of MSG are nerve stimulants. I cannot take capsules but have to empty contents in a mouthful of water or mix contents in unsweetened applesauce.
If ginger is in anything you take, that can raise your body temperature too. I hope this information can help you and I wish you luck!
I have read many of the posts on the mite infestation section here and have come to one conclusion. While it is important to treat your living enviornment, it is equally as important to treat your body's internal environment and by that I mean, CHANGE YOUR DIET. If mites find a good host, one with a polluted body (compromised immune system) they move right in. On the other hand, if they find a body that will not support them then they move right along to the next person. I think this logic is simple. Bugs go where it is beneficial for them. Make your body into a place that is not beneficial for them and they will leave. Or simply never move in. Many of us here in the states live in a protected eviornment and by that I mean we are able to actually servive despite having awefull diets and bad health. In countries where the standard of living is "lower", that is not an option. So guess what happens when we visit these courntries?
Get a reality check people. Go organic and seek out good health and you will be happier healthier and the organic food industry will grow and we will prosper as only the human race can.
If your child has not seen a doctor regarding this issue, please get him in to a doctor as soon as possible so you will know what the cause is. There are a number of medical issues that could be causing this.
A physical therapist may be able to help you to help him at home.
