Natural Remedies By Judi

Saturday, January 12, 2013

Good Morning Boys and Girls, I am going to tell you about a natural remedy or two that I have learned from my mom, and other people that have been in my life. I first want to throw out the disclaimer that even though this may work for me and my husband (since I force it on him) that it may not work for you.

"Yellow Mustard - 2 tablespoons"
Ok you are saying at this point, "Well?...." Ok I will tell you since you seem so curious. Muscle cramps be gone!!! That's right!! I take that mustard and those nasty cramps I get in my legs and feet dissolve into nothingness!! I experience bliss and my husband can go back to sleep w/out me punching him, because when those cramps hit, so do I!!!

I actually keep mustard by my bed since I tend to get those nasty cramps at night or should I say in the wee hours of the morning!!

"Vinegar and hot as you can stand water w/salt"
Oh yeah baby!! This is a nasty combo but it works!! Stop saying "Well?..." I am getting to that!

I get congestion in my chest from allergies and colds and let's just say "ICK!!!"

I cough and that can loosen it, but not always. Well if I use that nasty little combo and gargle(toss the head back and gargle) then of course spit it out , that nasty stuff comes with it by the boat load!!! emoticon OK… ICK!!!! EWWWW!! GAG!!!!!

So believe it or not but this really works for me. It may not taste all that great, ok it tastes really yucky, but hey, if you get a cramp in your leg or foot in the middle of the night, it is nice to have something that will stop that pain. emoticon

And I have to sing sometimes at church and that nasty little vinegar mix, well that clears up stuff for me to sing!! Like I said it does work for me! emoticon

    my 5 year old wakes up in the middle of the night every so often crying and complaining of his leg hurting.....it is frustrating cause I don't know what to do to help. Sometimes if I can beg him to eat a banana that will help after awhile.
