Submitted by Rajiv for Tooth Ache

Some simple advice :

1) Sleep with bed elevated towards the side of head. This is because once I experience when I was sitting upright, there was no tooth ache. After I slept, the ear, tooth and jaw started paining. I believe this is because the blood flows more when you are sleeping. I guess this increases blood pressure on the sensitive veins in tooth, and causes ache. I cut the pizza carton and put eight folds of carton under 2 legs under my head. And it worked well.

2) Clove works well. Clove oil even better because it reaches inside the tooth cavities easily. Otherwise, 1 or 2 cloves between the upper and lower teeth.

3) Keep the teeth clean, use mouthwash meant for sensitive teeth.

4) Keep your room warm in winter. My toothache started when the climate in Italy started to get cold. Also try wearing muffler/scarf around your neck , ear and jaws in winter.

I read the remedies here and they really helped. However, sometimes for the same kind of pain, a remedy works, other does not.

Example : One night, I used mouthwash, slept on elevated bed (towards head) and it did not pain. The next night, did the same but the pain remained.

So, I would suggest do not rely just on one remedy, but do a combination, so if one fails, another will work.

have fun...

Submitted by SleepyMommy for Severe Tooth Ache

I had been in excruciating, agonizing pain for over 2 hrs tonight to the point that I wanted to pull my hair out or literally chop my head off and the Anbesol liquid that I usually put on my tooth when it hurts wasn't working. I googled home remedies and found this site. After reading, I tried what I had at home ( being that it was 4am when I got up after reading the remedies, I wasn't going to town at this time) I tried every one of them I could. I made a paste from salt, pepper, & garlic powder with a drop or 2 of water and put it on my tooth for a few mins. Then I rinsed with hot salt water & repeated it. Then, I cut an onion and chewed a piece of it on my good side of my mouth then held the onion on the affected tooth for a few mins, then, I took minced garlic and spread around my tooth and gum for a few mins. Then, I sprayed my tooth and gum with Cloraseptic spray & put a cough drop in my mouth on the hurting side. I also took two 600mg Ibuprofen. I'm still hurting some but my pain level definitely went from a 10 to abt a 2 in abt 15 mins. I usually don't really believe in this home remedy stuff and never try it but I HAD to. I was hurting too bad. I'm glad I did! I hope this helps someone!!

Submitted by Chad for Plantar Warts

I have to reaffirm what a few posters have posted so far: the Tagamet and dessicated liver tablets REALLY do work. Holy crap. I've been struggling with these damn things for ten years. Was only one on each foot until we moved into our house two years ago with a tub that doesn't drain fast and suddenly I had about twenty of these painful things. I just tried to ignore them, they were so gross and embarrassing. When I got the first one, I went to the walk-in and had the doctor freeze it off. The pain from that device was so bad when he held it to my foot. I thought he was never going to stop pressing it against my foot, he removed it right before I was about to unleash a blood curdling scream. The wart never went away and later spread to my other foot. Needless to say, I never wanted to go through that again. Which brings me to the present. So I had about twenty of these things, including a giant mosaic on my heel, tons on the balls of my feet, and all over my toes. I read about Tagamet and dessicated liver tablets, so I ordered both on Amazon. Came to $25 for both. It's day 4 and they are already melting and drying away/up. It's really miraculous. So for anyone fed up with trying so many remedies, try this first and save your time.

Submitted by Linda Martinson for Kidney Infection

Like John here I too have found that Webmed scares people off natural remedies.
I found that ALOE VERA JUICE is great for treating bladder infections, and would you believe it ? Webmed states that ALOE VERA JUICE CAN KILL you.
YEAH!!! if you drink a gallon a day!!!
The best dosage is 3 ounces a day. IT does do the job and doesn't have any side effects at that dosage.
IF you drink more than that of course it can have some bad side effects like diarrhea. If you take a lot of anything, that can kill anyone! NOT JUST ALOE VERA.
EVERYTHING HAS TO BE IN MODERATION.

Submitted anonymously for Abscesses and Boils

i am a doctor and i have drained alot of abscesses and i know how painful it can be. a week ago i got an abscess in my perianal region. i treated it with some icthamol and antibiotic ointment but it just grew bigger. i know i had to go to the ER to get it drained. And from where its located i knew i probably needed an spinal anaesthia. i was too scared and embarresed to go. so i decided to go with some natural remedies. twice a day i had a warm bath with an antiseptic solution like Dettol. i let it soak for 15 mins. a relative recommeded fenugreek. you get the fenugreek seeds grind it to make a powder, mix it with some water to form a paste. apply it to the abscess over overnight. i made the paste and covered it with gauze and used a panty liner to stick it. the next day the abscess reduced significantly it was a size of a lime. some pus drained. i continued with the remedy. it was like a miracle.
hope this helps

Submitted by Anonymous for Genital Warts

I had about five really big and other smaller ones on my posterior labial commissure and they itched and bothered me a lot when I went to the doctor he put an acid to remove them but it did not really work he recommended cryotherapy but I was too embarrassed to go so I serched on line and found that applying garlic would do te job.
I minced enough garlic to cover every wart making them moist with the garlic juices and put it straight on the warts everyday, I was suppose to leave it for ten minutes everyday but I could not bare the pain I could only hold five minutes Maximum. This burned my skin so I let it heal then I noticed they mimnimized so I waited until my skin was completely healed so I can put it on again this time I put the garlic on with tape to hold the garlic in place and not let my skin breathe I held on the full 15 minutes. This completely tore my skin and burned it to the point of puss coming out I wa disgusted and terrified but a week passed and my skin healed completely i looked and every single wart was gone and my skin was smooth and it's been almost a year wart free I went through a lot of pain but It was really worth it.

Submitted anonymously for Split Ends

Jojoba oil is the only thing that's has really worked for my split ends. It also help with hair growth. Apply to roots and ends after shower

Submitted anonymously for Varicose Veins

Chlorophyll and vitamin k. Make a lotion with these and coconut oil and massage on and around varicose veins daily. Chlorophyll may sound pretty foreign but it's not hard to find and it's not too expensive. Possibly at your local health food store
