Submitted by Sick of BV!!! for Bacterial Vaginosis

I'd like to try the Vitamin C with rosehips method to see if it'll kill dead this damn BV I have......I don't know what brand to buy though....To the ladies who've tried this with success what brand have you all used....Please help me out here! Thanks loads!,

Submitted by Bruce for Boils

I am currently in the process of relieving a boil from my chin. After reading many suggestions here and elsewhere, I decided on using warm compresses followed by the application of tea tree oil, lemon balm, and garlic oil. The boil is softening and shrinking daily, and probably will be gone in a day or two. It took a little over a week to get rid of it.

Submitted by Marti for Teeth Pain

Cold weather induced toothache, gum ache. Brush area (this hurts) sugarfree gum chewed & packed in hole where root canal came out. Pressure point on back of hand between thumb & index finger. Medicare does not cover dental, go figure.

Want a low calorie treat for your dog? Something to use for training that won't pack on the pounds? Or just something to spoil them? Raw carrots and popcorn work great! I use cut carrots as a training treat and my JRT loves them!

Submitted by Cassie for Rosacea

TEA TREE OIL. Shampoo, soap, or straight up.

My mom has suffered from rosacea for decades, but recently she has nearly completely eliminated it.

But you have to follow this procedure EXACTLY.

-- RESEARCH & CAUSE --

FYI: You may want to just skip to treatment. This part's not pleasant.

Research has suggested that rosacea may be caused by excess of demodex. Demodex, also known as eyelash mites, are extremely common, but rosacea sufferers have been shown to have significantly more of them than most people, and in larger areas.

Demodex are harmless to most people, but some have an allergic reaction, and Rosacea sufferers have a significant access of them, causing the symptoms.


-- TREATMENT --

Must be followed *Exactly*

Note: You must do a lot of this in one day, so it is best started on the weekend.

Supplies:
Buy tea tree oil products, such as soap and shampoo. Buy new pillows.

**Preparation**
With very hot water, wash all pillowcases, bedding, towels, scarves, and other things that may come in contact with the effected area. Put through the drier on high heat. Twice.

Anything that comes in contact with your face and cannot be washed in hot water and put through the drier on high should be packed away for at least six months.

Throw away ALL makeup that has ever been used. Use none for 2 weeks. This is extremely important.

Have furry pets? Bathe them with tea tree oil shampoo as well. Easily found at most pet stores. (Most people don't think of this, but it can help.)

**Initial Treatment**

Must be done the same day as everything is washed, and when pillows are replaced.

Wash with tea tree oil soap and shampoo. Let the tea tree oil soak on effected areas for at least 5 min, preferably 15+. Exfoliate.

Over the next two weeks, repeat soaking with the tea tree oil daily. Try not to skip any days. Exfoliate on the weekends.

**Continuing Treatment**

You can begin to use makeup again after the two week point, but wash regularly with tea tree oil and soak at least once a week. Exfoliate at least once a month, preferable every other time you soak.

Soon, you will be rosacea free! (Or very, very close to it)

If you have a significant other, you may want to encourage them to also wash their face with tea tree oil soap at least weekly, as the cause easily transfers with skin contact (even if they aren't effected.)

Submitted anonymously for Clogged Drain

If your drain backs up frequently, (we had a problem with our basement backing up) Boil water and mix in a lot of vinegar. Oily type buildups can be a problem, and vinegar is great for breaking up oily things, especially when mixed with boiling water.

We use about 1/2 gallon of vinegar and 5 gallons of boiling/extra hot water about twice a year and haven't had a backup since! After a few years, we've even become confident enough to replace our carpet!

Submitted anonymously for Cold Sores

When it come to cold sores, my grandma has always said Carmex does the trick. But don't use carmex for chapped lips- it will make it worse!

Submitted by supertrucker233 for Tooth with Exposed Nerve

So I am a truck driver and have no meds available no anything available and the worst toothache I have ever experienced. Enough so I was tempted to call carve my tooth out with my pocket knife. I looked up accucpressure points for tooth pain and INSTANT relief. I pressed first on the meaty part of my hand between the thumb and fore finger then I pinched my cheeks just below my eyes...that one done the trick. Its free and it's worth a shot. I couldn't believe how well it worked.

Submitted by Patrick for Leg Cramps

Apple Cider Vinegar is a traditional remedy for leg cramps. Adding electrolytes is a modern way to improve on the basic formula, as is using quality unfiltered apple cider vinegar. I found a product called 'Pilgrims Remedy' that does this; it's at plimothbaye.com or nomorelegcramps.com. Good Reviews so far.

Submitted by I.A.M. for Tooth Nerve Pain

I discovered a cough medication called Benzonatate while on a cruise in Mexico, and by lost in translation the pharmasist told me to suck on it when I was supposed to swallow it whole. My whole entire mouth became so numb I swear you could have pulled everyone of my teeth out, and I wouldn't have felt a thing. My toungue had relaxed to the point that my speech was enabled by a heavy lisp! Non-the-less, I never forgot it!The medication finally wore off after awhile... It was about two years later I went to my doctor for an uncontrollable cough, and he prescribed me the same medication. Except, I knew to swallow it whole!Now to get to my point. I have been on a waiting list for a root canal at my local dentistry school, and I have been enduring horrible excrutiating nerve pain. If I even get a little food on that tooth and bite down on it where that tooth is, it will send a shock through my head that feels like someone took a sword and ran it through my head. I have never screamed so loud in all my life as I hold on to my face with tears barreling out of my eyes! So, I remembered that time on the cruise. The time I could have pulled out all of my teeth and not felt a thing! I grabbed one of those pills and punctured it with a needle and took one of those mini plastic tooth floss brushes and applied the medication on it, and proceeded to stick it between my teeth so the medication could get as close to the nerves as possible. I waited about 10 seconds, and sure enough, I can't feel a damn thing. Oh what a relief it is. So, if you are lucky enough to have been prescribed Benzonatate or generic for Tessalon please don't throw the unused portion away! I am sure it probably has some other numbing useful aid other than teeth pain. Also for those of you who do not have the cough medicine. Do the same thing using Oragel Severe Gel 20% Benzocain medication. The secret is to get the medication as close to the nerves as possible. So, take the little bristle side of the floss brush, and use alot to get down inbetween your teeth and gums. It really helps. At least until you can go get real professional help. Good Luck and I feel Your pain!
