The "Best" List

Deirdre's List
Posted by Deirdre (Earth Clinic) on 09/24/2009

I will probably revise this list as time goes by, but here are my current favorite remedies and what I use them for. I don't think I can pick a #1 remedy. I find all of the following immensely healing.

1. Magnesium Oil, aka Transdermal Magnesium Therapy:
I am loving Magnesium oil for it's calming and relaxing properties, also for muscle aches and tension. Stops PMS as long as you apply it every day or two. Great for eye tension if you apply it to your forehead and temples.

2. Bill Munro's Hydrogen Peroxide Inhalation Method:
I've used Bill's cure for about 4 years now (maybe more?). The minute I feel I am getting sick, I start inhaling and keep it up every few hours for at least a day or two. I don't use it every day, but I do travel with it and inhale before and after getting on a plane. I am also testing it for sports endurance, along with taking purslane, 1/2 hour before exercising or martial arts training. Seems to be a fantastic combination but will post more on that later.

3. Apple Cider Vinegar:
This is my fountain of youth remedy that I have used for about 15 years and the remedy that got Earth Clinic rocking and rolling! I am currently experimenting with apple cider vinegar soaks instead of drinking it and am having good results.

3. Green Smoothies:
Fantastic to regulate the bowels.

4. Flax Seed Oil, Organic:
Adding 1 tablespoon of flax seed oil to either a smoothie or yogurt makes skin soft and "dewey" the next morning. I would mark this as one of the best internal remedies for the skin, along with apple cider vinegar.

4. Cayenne Pepper
Any time I have a sore throat, I gargle with cayenne. Done this for the past 4 years. Works every time though strep throat takes 2-3 days to fully clear up.

5. Turmeric:
Any time I eat a large amount of nuts, a boil starts to appear. I put 1 teaspoon of turmeric in a glass of water and drink it. Boil is almost gone by the next morning.

6. Hydrogen Peroxide 3%
Any time I get a pimple, I put H202 on a cotton ball and hold it to the pimple for 5-10 minutes. Virtually gone the next day.

7. Inversion Board Therapy
I use this to counter my bad neck posture at the computer. I also feel it is one of the BEST lymphatic flushes you can do, and am doing it as a breast cancer prevention remedy. I hang upside down for a minute, then come up for about 15 seconds and feel the blood rush back down to my feet, then hang upside down, then come up, about 6 times total... I call it my Dunking the Blood method!
