Quick Fixes – Some Natural Remedies

Arthritis: 1 t. Turmeric, 1 t. unflavoured gelatin, 2 . honey, and 1-2 c. Warm milk before bed. Add a pinch of cinnamon or ginger for a better flavour.

Brain Health: Eat eggs for their choline, 2 T. Of Coconut Oil daily for their triglycerides, and drink clean water (reverse osmosis or distilled). That is all your brain is made of, and without causes the brain to be malnourished.

Bruises: Bite a Vitamin E capsule or two, and apply the contents to the bruise, then swallow the capsule.

Blood Sugar: Work a teaspoon of cinnamon into your diet daily or mix with honey into hot water before bed.

Colds: 1 big pinches of Ajwain + 2 tablets of Siberian Ginsing + 1 Zinc 3 x daily, and all the chewable Vitamin C you want. Drink herbal teas: Hibiscus for Vitamin C, Licorice Root tea for cough, Marshmallow Root for sore chest, and Bromelein supplements to break down mucous.

Dairy products will only nourish you if the butterfat is well over 3%. The proteins must have available calcium to be processed, and the fat carries the calcium and helps to get it into the bloodstream. Without the fat, the proteins, which demand calcium, strip it from the bones and teeth. A fetus is brutal in its demand for calcium. So drink less milk if you are concerned about fat and animal proteins, but when you do, use light cream at 5% BF (butterfat). Low-fat dairy products do more harm than good, and have added stabilizers and gums added to them.

Depression: 20 IU Vitamin D3 per lb., with
2.5 mg Magnesium Citrate per lb. Of body weight, daily. Use Magnesium Oil.

Distilled Water will help with many health problems and flush out kidney and liver channels by breaking down insoluble mineral deposits. You do not need to add minerals to the water, as soluble minerals are absorbed by plants, thus you get them from the foods you eat, not water.

Earache: Mash a clove of garlic in 2 t. Olive oil. Wait 10 minutes before straining into a drop bottle. Put a few drops into affected ear and wad with some cotton. Do this 2 x daily until ear is well.

Fats should only be consumed when as close to nature as possible. Genetically modified oils such as corn, soy, and canola are worse for your health than lard. Use cold-pressed virgin oils and low heat when cooking. Clear deodorized cooking oils are also bad as the molecules have been fractured by heat and chemicals, so they enter the bloodstream as free radicals, and exhaust the immune system. Cook with butter, coconut oil, and yellow extra-virgin olive oil as often as possible. Save the fried chicken for a rare treat.

Flu Buster
1 lemon or lime, juiced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 t. Ginger, minced
2 t. Raw honey
1/8 – 1/4 t. Cayenne
2 c. Water

Make this up 2 or 3 times a day at the onset of a cold or Flu, until well.Fatigue: Natural B12 (methylcobalamine) sublingual at 3,000 mcg daily

Memory Fog & Loss: 1 T. Coconut Oil with 10 mg; Lithium Orotate daily against Alzheimer’s.

Insomnia: 3 capsules of flax seed oil (or 3 T. Ground daily), with warm milk and honey at bedtime.

Magnesium Oil: 2 T. Epson Salts In 3 T. Boiling water; stir until dissolved. Pour into glass bottle. Massage 1/2 t. On tummy at bedtime to help calm kicking legs, anxiety, etc.

Tremors: Try using Magnesium Oil, Vitamin D3 therapy as above, and a good teaspoon of liquid lecithin daily, which will coat the myalin sheath around the spinal nerves.

Wounds: Make a cup of comfrey tea, strain, and dip a clean washcloth or handkerchief in the tea. Wring it out and apply to clean wound or bruises. If you need an ointment, raw honey is excellent.

Fung-Away Foot Soak

Fung-Away Foot Soak

This makes a nice hot soak for chilly nights in the winter time, or as a cooling soak in tepid water for sandal weather, especially when using Peppermint!

1 liter Water
1/4 c. Baking Soda/Apple Cider Vinegar
2 t. Salt
12 drops Tea Tree/Peppermint Essential Oil

Mix the above ingredients in a basin just large enough for your feet, and allow them to soak for 20 minutes. Afterwards would be a good time to attend to cuticles and dry skin, and apply some cream to moisturize those heels.

Did you know…? You can apply a few drops of Tea Tree Oil directly to your clean nails after a shower or bath to continue working on fungal infections. Using a toothpaste with it will also help diminish candida in your mouth and throat, as will eliminating as much starch and sugar from your diet as possible.

Interesting Notes on Asberger’s Syndrome

We all know someone who is seemingly cold and distant, but seem to think everything is fine; I certainly have this in my family.

About Anorexia Nervosa…

I just wanted to pass on some historical information that may or may not be helpful.

Until 1932, if a girl started ‘pining’ the physician would prescribe Tincture of Cannabis, available at the pharmacy. A few drops in water and she would start eating.

To make a tincture, one measures a dry herb by volume, and covers it with the same volume of grain alcohol (like alcool, or vodka) in a covered jar. It is kept in a dark place and shaken daily. After 10 days it is filtered through an unbleached coffee filter into a sterile bottle. The typical dosage is then 3 drops in a glass of water, but may go up one drop at a time to 10 until the munchies occur.

Also, cannabis was one of the healing herbs in the Bible, so it is man’s law, not God’s, that prohibits its use.

Chamomile and Oat Moisturizing Hand Scrub

Chamomile and Oat Moisturizing Hand Scrub

1/2 c. Cornstarch

1/2 c. Glycerin

1/4 c. Chamomile tea, very strong infusion

2 T. Sweet Almond, Calendula or Arnica Oil

2 T. Oatmeal, very finely ground

2 T. Rice, very finely ground

Use a spice grinder for the oats and rice. Heat the glycerin and slowly add the cornstarch, stirring constantly to make a paste. Take off the heat and slowly stir in the chamomile infusion, then the oil, and finally the ground oats and finely ground rice. Store in a wide-mouthed jar or tin and use in the same way as you would a hand soap. It should keep for up to 2 months.

A Quick Update

So far, since using my colloidal silver solution, my own eyes are feeling so much better (I have a torn vitreous), and I am spraying the solution on my itchy places and on a benign cancer I have (don’t want to go through the cutting and scraping again when it just grows back). The itch has stopped, and the growth went from a charcoal to taupe in three days. I am impressed. Now I’m going to attack some skin tags. I have also started sipping a little…it tastes good, like fresh rain. I love it.

I do a lot of volunteering with the marginalized community as well as give treatments using complementary therapies for our local hospice, so I come into contact with a lot of people with various illnesses. I can’t give my colloidal silver out to hospice patients, of course, but to the folks on the street or in rooming houses who cannot afford much of anything, I am giving this out as they need it. I just gave one friend what would have cost $180 in the health food store, because it cost me less than $3.00! He is battling cancer as well as diabetes, but his wife is in a wheelchair and they cannot get the help they need from community nursing. He was grateful to try anything that might help him keep his strength up so he can care for her.

Another gentleman, a widower I know, has two cancers, one being on his skin. He’s been using it on facial lesions that won’t heal, and he says it is helping. All I know is two weeks ago I was worried, he was fading so fast and turning grey, now he seems much better again and has some colour back. If he wants to try drinking it, he’ll get his own big bottle, too.

But I am getting used to this sort of thing. Maybe it’s just having someone to care about you, but it seems whenever I get end-stage folks and do treatments, my assignment often runs out before they do…then months later I am called back in. And I know the power of herbs when people not getting treatments will actually used them. There are amazing cures the physicians know nothing about – but there is no money in that, is there!

(If you have premenopausal floods, is there a fast stop to that! No hysterectomy, no chemical castration, as I was offered. Just an herbal stop to it all. Just get in touch with me of the famous herbalist in the US, Susan Weed.)

In fact I once taught someone how to nurse a friend after the surgeon gave up and just closed her back up. I loaned them some heavy duty texts and gave them a regimen of raw fruits and juices to try with her friend. They followed it religiously, and a month later the surgeon and oncologist were stumped as they couldn’t find any cancer. She was still alive and thriving a year later. Meanwhile another woman i heard about at the same time and much younger, was told to only eat Ensure and tapioca by her oncologist. I shared how well the ‘dying’ woman was doing, but the mutual acquaintance there would not go against the doctor and feed her raw fruits and juices with the much needed enzymes, and she succumbed within a few weeks (as the other woman was supposed to have done) leaving a young child and husband behind.

I guess the Lord either wants me to be encouraged by His wondrous love, or give many of the people I’ve personally come across to have just a little more time here, because I have certainly been blessed to have such lovely folks in my life who seem to do so well after just a little tender loving care.

Soon…

 

 

 

My Two Best Laundry Tricks

Liquid Laundry Detergent (1/2 Gallon)

1/4 c. Borax
1/4 c. Washing Soda
1/4 c.Blue Dawn Dish Detergent
¼ t. Essential Oil, if desired for smelly laundry
Hot tap water

In a plastic 2-liter bottle put the sodas and fill halfway up with water. Shake well, then add the Dawn and essential oil. Gently top up with hot water and shake again before using. Use 2 T. For a medium load, and use undiluted for pre-treating dirty spots. Clearly mark the bottle with a permanent marker.

Anti-Static Dryer Balls

For each, take about 18 of aluminum foil and wad up into a ball. Bank the sides well until smooth; you dont want sharp little edges pulling on fine fabrics. Toss into the dryer with your clothes, but if you have concerns about a fine article, put the ball inside a sock.

This works as well as a tennis ball, without the hot rubber smell and chemicals that leach out into the steam. And if you are sensitive to fabric softeners, you wont really need any with this, as it will leave your towels as absorbent as if left on the line to dry, but fluffy as when dried in a dryer. This approach will extend the life of your fabrics as the chemicals and waxes in commercial fabric softeners actually degrade the fibers.

If you want, you can drive a nail or awl into the ball to make a deep hole into which you can drip a little essential oil.
