Submitted by James for Itching

Manzanita Oil. I used to get Poison Oak every time we'd go up to our ranch in the foothills of Northern California. I would use Manzanita Tree Oil that id extract from the Manzanita Tree at our ranch. It works so well that we started to bottle it.

Submitted by Julie for Ant Bites Stings

Red ant bites- put mustard on bite. Either dry mustard or the stuff from the jar if that is all you have. Takes the pain and stinger out

Submitted anonymously for Muscle Cramps

I frequently get cramps and spasms in my lower leg and foot. It was very distressing pain. My son loaned me his Solis Pain Relief System device and it relieves my cramps in less than a minute almost like magic. Now I keep one with me to have it on hand when I need it.

Submitted by ChzzMonkee for Blepharitis

I have found the wet towel compress to be a very troublsome procedure. Try this regimen twice a day:

BLEPHARITIS LID MARGIN DISEASE

Warm Compresses Twice A Day

1. Use a Small, Microwavable, Hot/Cold Reusable Compress

(A Walmart Equate brand compress measures 11” by

5” and costs about $6.00)

2. Microwave the compress at High for 50 seconds (1400 watt microwave) (adjust as comfortable/necessary)

3. Take one sheet of a paper towel and fold it in half and then fold

it into thirds to achieve a paper ‘bandage’ of 10” by 2”

4. Run water (warm or cold) over the paper ‘bandage’ to saturate it

5. Squeeze the excess water out of the paper ‘bandage’

6. Set you alarm (cell phone or kitchen timer) for 5 minutes

7. Lean your head back in a chair or sofa

8. Place the wet compress over your eyes

9. Place small compress on top of the wet bandage (lightly press

the compress into the bandage to make better contact with

your eyes))

10. Turn off alarm and use your fingers to hold the ends of the

bandage and gently ‘masssage’ (for 10 to 15 seconds) the

bandage from the corners of your eyes towards your nose for

10 to 15 seconds to help squeeze oil out of the eyelid glands

Submitted by Rich for Heartburn

The best cure is to know the cause

Heartburn is not caused by too much acid, but because of weak stomach acids. ACV and other digestible acids, like dill pickle juice, can be used to strengthen your stomach acids. The worst thing you can do for heartburn is to take anti acids, for they weaken and already weak stomach acid. Thereby the stomach must produce more acid, which causes acid reflux. So the next time you get heartburn, just take a swig of your favorite pickle juice, and overtime you will discover your problem with heartburn will be a thing of the past.

Submitted by Marilyn for Diarrhea

My son had a stomach flu, with a headache, sore muscles, nausea and diarrhea. By the fourth morning there was no change in the diarrhea. We talked about his grandfather who, as a 12 year old boy, had been forcibly removed from his home in the Ukraine and sent to work for 2 years in Siberia. A lot of kids died from diarrhea. The ones that lived were the ones that would burn their toast and eat it whenever they got diarrhea. My son decided to try charcoal. He followed the instructions on the bottle, 2 tablets 8 times a day. He only did it for one day because by that evening he began to improve and the next day the diarrhea was gone and he began to eat again with no repercussions.

Submitted by Lily288 for Vertigo

I took half a Gravol tablet early in the evening then massaged my affected ear with little face massager. I was so surprised that the vertigo I'd been suffering for close to 5months was so much better ....so hard to believe... So I took the rest of the Gravol and went to bed... I slept like a rock that night and in the morning my vertigo was gone and has not returned since. That was three years ago.

Submitted anonymously for Gum Pain

Single mom with a newborn, and severe tooth/gum pain!! The pain was getting so bad that it was turning into a migraine! I've looked on this site many times for remedies for other ailments that I've had on the past so I thought I'd look for something to help this pain as I have no painkillers in the house and feeding a baby with a migraine and severe mouth pain was not something I wanted to do.

TOOTHPASTE WITH SALT AND BAKING SODA!!! I brushed twice with this mixture and my gums are still sore (from all the brushing I had done before finding this remedy) and the teeth pain is still there slightly, but I no longer feel as though my head is going to explode and I can comfortably feed my daughter.

Obviously yes, go to a dentist ASAP! But if you need a remedy to tide you over until you can see one, I highly recommend this one!

Submitted by Raven for Cold and Cough

I tried this for my mate when he had a cough that just wouldn't go away. It may or may not work for you, but it worked for him.

4 parts dried Mint leaves (if you can't find dried fresh will work)

3 parts ground ginger

3 parts ground cinnamon

2 parts ground black pepper

1 pinch ground cloves

Mix together and put into a teabag. No teabag? Coffee filters work too. Just fill and tie the top so nothing falls out. Steep in 8 ounces of hot water for 5 minutes and serve hot.

Two cups in a day killed my mate's cold but take as needed for your situation. Good luck!

Submitted by Anonymous for Vaginal Odor

Bv Cure

Drink organic lemon in a warm water on an empty stomach first thing you wake up follow it up with 5 or so glasses of water through out the day. And eat after 30 mins. Lastly drink it again before goin to bed.And i can assure you the smell would be less potent in a day and by day two the smell would be completely gone.
