Phlebitis: I tried Ted's lemon baking soda remedy, and it helped, but not a cure. My problem extends to my feet making it difficult walking , a catch 22 situation, exercise being part of the treatment. I have tried losing weight as well , but at( 60 yrs) 140lbs and 5ft4" I am not that over weight.
I have found it does help alot with gout and arthritis, as well as the arthritus diet has.
Interestingly, I was taking guaifenesin for a cough, and my feet felt much better , I wondered if it was a coincidence, but when I stopped taking it it was back within days! I looked guaifenesin up and it has interesting properties including possible , inhibition of platelet aggregation.
I have found it possible to buy as a tablet, and currently I am able to go back to pottering about in the vegatable garden again!
I would be interested in anybody elses experiences , and am just putting it out there in case it would help anybody else.
Banana Peel Feedback
I had almost given up on my warts. I got them about 5 years ago, on my right hand, about 4 of them. The only one that really bothered me was this one on my first knuckle. It started out really small but grew and grew to about the size of a large pea. So after about 4 years I finally tried getting it frozen, which worked out HORRIBLY. The pain of it wasn't bad, it was just a really annoying, bothersome, pain. After getting it frozen 3 times, it would turn brown and fall off, only to come back bigger than before, and after my last treatment the wart recruited some back up, and now there are a few odd-shaped warts around the first one. So I really just gave up. I'm very self-concsious of them and it really depresses me. I have really close friends that see it and call it gross and stuff, in a joking manner, but they don't realize how much it really hurts my feelings. Anyway, my aunt who is a nurse, tells me to try this bannana peel thing, and I thought, "I'll try it but i doubt it will work". So first I googled the rememdy and found this site, and I'm very optimistic. I just started it today and its been about 6 hours and the warts are already turning a clear/white color, like their dying. I really hope this works as for me, it will be a HUGE self-esteem booster.
