I'm disturbed by all the stuff I've been reading about the food that we eat and the fact that there is so little food that the average person can buy that isn't loaded with artificial preservatives and colors and genetically modified in some way or other. <BR> But what really has me seeing red is the fate of those in hospitals...

The video showed them rubbing the white part, but I figure the oils are actually located on the outside and that should be more effective. You can also squeeze the peels over your skin to release these oils too. <BR> <BR> Catnip also is supposed to repel bugs, so rubbing some fresh catnip leaves on your skin may also help. <BR> <BR> ...

My allergies were draining so horribly that my ears were hurting every morning, my chest and nose were congested, and I was miserable.

Look for the new topic What's helped you heal what Condition". By sharing your story, or what helped you or a family member, you just may be helping someone that has been looking for something to help that very same condition. <BR> <BR> Sometimes, just thinking about the positives in our lives has helped us in our road to healing. That is the 2nd way you can earn a goodie in April. The topic Post a Positive Today, is down under Recipes, games and INSPIRATION. You surely can think of one... Mon, 31 Mar 2014 17:06:29 EST What's helped you to heal What Condition? Elisadenk suggested a topic along these lines. We had a hard time wording it in the limited topic line. Basically we want you to share what health issue you (or a family member) have or had, and what natural thing did you find that you feel helped you. If it's several things that have been helped, then you can share what helped each, or take one condition at a time and comment again.

I have never heard of this. This article talked about using about a tsp of coconut oil and swishing it in your mouth and that it pulls the toxins out of your mouth. The recommended time is 20 minutes and never swallow it or spit it out in your sink (damage your pipes). Has anyone tried this? Is there any validity to this practice?

For me, I began because I moved into the Northwest where natural medicine and naturopaths were greatly used. That was 30 years ago. I had one of my 3 girls that had stomach problems and was small for her age. The particular naturopath I went to was specializing in allergies. She was allergic to cane and beet sugar and eggs. It worked and she stopped vomiting and began to grow. <BR> <BR> Sadly, although we stayed away from what we are allergic to, I really didn't go deeply into remedies ...

In the meantime I'm looking into supplements, I'm already taking a multivitamin. For inflammation, some say use fish oil, others swear by krill oil, and my doctor says stick to the Plaquenil.
