Treat Foot Odour With Tea
Various soaking agents can help keep the feet dry and thus may also help control odour. To treat foot odour try soaking your feet frequently in tea. Tannin, which can be found in tea bags, is a drying agent.

Boil 3 or 4 tea bags in approx 750ml of water for about 10 minutes. Then add enough cold water to make a comfortable soak. Soak your feet for 25 minutes, dry them and apply foot powder. Do this twice a day until you get the problem under control. Repeating this twice a week thereafter should keep odour from recurring.

OUCH LOL guess it could work.
I have cut most processed foods out of my diet. I try very hard never to eat anything out of a box or a can. Cans are harder because I will use tomatoes and mushrooms often.But we work very hard on scratch cooking here..Takes practice.

I also cook without salt but it's the hidden stuff that worries me, they add salt to everything these days even yogurt! Would love to cut all processed junk out of my diet, going to really give it a try this year.

Another brilliant tip for today....(got my elastic band on!)

How to Stop

Here is a different way to help you stop yourself doing just about anything - for example smoking, eating cake, having negative thoughts. Take a rubber band and leave it round your wrist. It must not be tight, but not too loose, just slightly loose. Every time do find yourself doing, or even thinking about, whatever you want to stop, pull back the rubber band and let go - it will give a sharp stinging pain that you will come to associate with whatever you want to stop.

I am better it took about 10 days. Hope you are better as well.
I cook with very little salt because it causes me to retain water. I realized it years ago that I actually like the tastes of the foods them selves with out it. When my daughter was young she would grab the salt shaker and shake and shake before even tasting so I stopped way back then.Thought it would be healthier for her.He He and I notice my fingers were no longer like little sausages

Hope you got over your cold but I get it now, was ill with a funny tummy and still had to take care of the animals! men.....?

another tip to start the year off

Under Pressure?

Hypertension can often lead to stroke, heart attack or kidney failure. Your intake of salt plays a major role in this regard.

It is important to be aware of the amount of hidden salt in processed foods. On product labels, the words 'monosodium glutamate' and 'brine' also indicate the presence of salt.

Any members have suggestions on how to limit salt intake?

LOL I avoid salt at all cost. Drink plenty of water to flush the extra fluids from your body and if that does not help check with a doc sometime swelling in ankles and feet is a heart related issue ( God forbid) HUGS

Natural remedy for indigestion

If you have symptoms such as bloating and a burning feeling in your upper abdomen, you might not have totally digested your food (especially fatty or spicy food) or you could have excess stomach acid or an ulcer. The enzyme, papain, in papaya helps yor body break down protein. You can buy chewable papya tablets at health stores, and unlike antacids that can cause your body to product more stomach acid, they won't cause a rebound effect. If you've a tendency to indigestion, drink about 180ml of unsweetened papaya juice or eat a slice of fresh papaya after your meal.

Papaya stays fresh for a week in a sealed container in the fridge. Papya juice lasts a week from opening.

What You Can Do For Dry Eyes

People over 65 and postmenopausal women are more likely to have dry eyes.

Obviously, a humidifier in your home or workplace will help, when the air is dry.

Try to get more Vitamin A in your diet, if you suffer from dry eyes. You can eat salmon, sardines, or eggs once a day. Alternatively, take 10 000 IU of vitamin A with 400 IU of vitamin D daily. Make sure your supplement is made from fish oil. You can reduce this dose to 5000 IU of vitamin A, once symptoms have subsided.

Pregnant women should check with their doctor before taking vitmain A.

Take 2 tablespoons of flaxsees or fish oil daily, as these contain omega-3 fatty acids.

This tested method of stopping an irritating cough that keeps you awake at night is worth a try....

We have all been kept awake by our own or someone else's cough. ANYTHING is better than antibiotics. Even babies could benefit from this and the parents wouldn't worry about the safety of their child. And of course, it is harmless and free from any type of side-effects.

READ IT ALL. It works 100 percent of the time, although the scientists at the Canada Research council (who discovered it) aren't sure why.

How to stop a cough: the treatment
To stop night time coughing in a child (or an adult, as we found out personally), put Vicks Vapor Rub generously on the bottom of the feet at bedtime and then cover with socks.

Even persistent, heavy, deep coughing will stop in about five minutes and stay stopped for many, many hours of relief. This works 100 percent of the time, and is more effective in children than even very strong prescription cough medicines.

In addition it is extremely soothing and comforting and they will sleep soundly. I heard the head of the Canada Research Council describe these findings on the part of their scientists when they were investigating the effectiveness and usage of prescription cough medicines in children, as compared to alternative therapies like acupressure.

My friend tried it on herself when she had a very deep constant and persistent cough a few weeks ago, and it worked 100 percent! She said it felt like a warm blanket had enveloped her. The coughing stopped in a few minutes, and believe me this was a deep (incredibly annoying!) every few seconds, uncontrollable cough and she slept cough-free for hours every night she used it.

If you have children or grandchildren, pass it on. If you end up sick, try it yourself and you will be absolutely amazed.

Oh Wendy you made my smile! Seriously, nothing wrong soaking in a bath with lemons and cucumber, the lemon should soften the skin beautifully. I often have a foot soak in warm water, lemon and bicarbonate, it is great for tired feet and softens cracked heels.

Alright Now I know I need to stop reading these for tonight, I am TOO sleepy. When I read the spa water suggestion I was thinking for the bath. I would have been soaking in a tub of lemons and cucumbers. It was till someone mentioned drinking in another post that I realized I was supposed to be drinking it not bathing in it. Don't think the lemon would have been that great on my dry skin. emoticon

There's always a lot to be thankful for if you take time to look for it. For example, I am sitting here thinking how nice it is that wrinkles don't hurt.

Fat free is normally loaded with sodium and sugar to make it palatable.

don't get hung up on fat free...we need certain good fats to be healthy. Sometimes if you are an avid label reader like I am you will find that many fat free products just have a lot more sugar in them. Low fat & watch calories. Drink plenty of plain water!

I mostly drink plain water but I think that would zip it up. I used to drink lemon water it flushes your system

Make your own refreshing Spa water by adding a dash of lemon juice and a few slices of cucumber.

ALWAYS check with your doctor before taking herbal or "natural" supplements. Some of them can have terrible consequences if taken with prescription medicine. Even something supposedly simple like iron tables can be dangerous if not taken properly.

Remember "natural" is not always good for you, hemlock and opium are natural substances.
