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!

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.

Submitted by Jodi Barker for Bacterial Vaginosis and Yeast Infection

I had bv on and off for 10 years after my son was born. I tried EVERYTHING to get rid of it. Like others here have said, antibiotics made it worse. I've been bv free for 8 years every since I decided to stop feeding it and eliminate sugars from my diet. Finding the correct probiotics (only 2 strains are clinically proven) and a prebiotic diet helped get my body back in balance. Since there is no one place to get all the home treatment info you need, I created a small blog with free info on exactly how I did it. Go to bvtreatment dot com

Submitted by Tom for Toenail Fungus

I did this and you see results almost immediately:

Buy an inexpensive Dremel rotary tool. Use the fine grit sanding band that comes with the tool. Sand your toenails as far as you can toward the nailbed without hurting. Clean toes and apply Vick’s vapor rub or almost any anti-fungal for overnight. Repeat as often as possible. Your nailbeds may feel a bit bruised after each sanding. Just wait a day or two before next sanding then repeat, repeat repeat. Sanding alone immediately makes your toes “look” better. The scuffing of the sanding makes the yellow look white and each time you do it, another layer of fungus comes off. If your nails are too sore to sand remember to still apply anti-fungal for bedtime. This works. My nails are almost perfect now after doing this for a couple weeks. I’m wearing flip-flops for gosh sakes! ALL of my toenails were completely yellow and super thick

Submitted anonymously for Prickly Heat

Soak 1 teaspoon of cumin seeds and 1 teaspoon of coriander seeds in 12 ounces water overnight. Strain and drink the liquid the next day. This can be done daily until the rash goes away.

Submitted by Batb for Parasites

Garlic enema!

Works very well

Look this remedy up in book Prescription For Nutritional Healing

In addition to giving the enema keep everything clean.

Keep, if that is possible, the kids fingers out of mouth, eyes etc

Clean all bed linen.

Best to check for parasites at night with a flashlight

The enema has to be given nightly for five nights

All of those things listed to eat also help

Buy a small rubber enema bulb syringe to give the enema.

Wash with warm soapy and rinse well after each enem

Air dry

Submitted by Older mom and former LPN for Constipation (Toddlers and Older)

Yes going to recommend the home enema for toddlers constipation!

Seventy year old grandma here. Four of my own children, five grand children. Retired LPN (nurse) from old school.

Over the years of treating my own children, grand kids, nieces and nephews, and lots of children in dr office, clinic, hospital and when doing private home visits, for constipation I feel the enema is the best natural home remedy to give. Even today!

The home enema went out of popular use for years. It is now coming back as a good home remedy for the toddler and older child. And adult as well!

After receiving the doctor’s ok I administered many enemas to the constipated toddler.

Years ago when I would do a home visit to a sick child most always he was also constipated and he was given a enema in the home. For most this was his first time ever enema and for his mom to learn this wonderful home remedy.

The mother was always amazed how effective the enema was. The child always felt better after he was given the enema.

A few things first..

- always consult with your naturopathic or regular doctor before giving home rememdies . This includes enemas

- don’t take web postings/ blogs as medical advice

- enemas are not habit forming

- the enema is not painful. But, may make the tummy feel full and may be some minor discomfort for a few minutes

- years ago the most popular home remedy for the constpated child was a warm water soapy enema. Made with either Castile soap or bar of ivory

- in the recent years I have read that giving the soapy enema and the Fleet enema is no longer advisable. Read on the web regarding this

- a herbal enema, oil retention enema or plain warm water is now thought to be better for a toddler to receive when constipated

I believe the enema is the best natural home remedy for the constipated toddler. Better than giving dreaded Miralax, or other slow working, discomforting, laxatives.

My children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews and other children were given enemas with the reusable rubber enema bulb Syringe Then when older the bag was used for administering the enemas.

Here are some things I learned and taught other moms...

- ask him if this is his first ever enema and what did he think of his enema before if he had one before

- talking to him helps

- if the child is old enough to understand tell him he will be given a enema. Tell him it will make him feel better and does not hurt

- tell him he can help you with the enema by relaxing, taking deep breaths in and out of his open mouth, like panting, when he is getting the enema

- tell him you will stop the enema if he feels discomfort but he has to take the full enema

- I showed the enema bulb to many before the enema. This made it much easier to give one

- ask him if he has a favorite show to watch, book to read , etc when he is receiving the enema. This is the best way to have him relax during it

Have everything prepared and ready for the enema.

Have no interruptions during the enema.

Best tine for giving a enema is when all others are out of the house

If the other children are at home have neighbor mom or sitter watch them while you are administering the enema

Warm the room where it will be given at

When giving the enema if possible close the door

Positions for the enema...

Always ask your doctor what position is Best

Over the years I found across the lap or on a table was best for toddlers.

For older child on the Best was always on the bed

The toddler can be placed across your lap on a towel. Face down on his tummy laying on a towel. Or placed on a table. On his back on a towel. When on the table hold his legs up in the air some.

If you feel the toddler will resist and fight getting a enema best to have another mom, relative, baby sitter .. to assist you. She can hold him and soothe him be talking calmly to him.

The next enema is always easier to give.

Some toddlers, even older child, will try and talk you out of the enema. Be firm and let him know a enema is good for him and he will get one.

Most of the time just telling him I could have another nurse come in and help, or another mom help, he would calm down and take the enema from me alone.

Before giving the toddler a enema I would try other remedies first such as...

- increasing fiber

- drinking more water or juice

- tummy massage and moving legs in bicycle motion when he is on his back

- give a warm bath

-insert a rectal thermometer with some Vaseline on the tip. Gently and slowly move rotate the thermometer some. This may produce a BM

- review child’s eating and exercise habits

- note on the calendar the last BM so you will know

A good home book every mom shoul have isPrescription For Nutritional Healing. It has many home remedies in it as well as how to give enemas and the various types of enemas to give.

I learned the garlic or catnip tea enemas in that book to reduce a fever. They work!

Read Valerie’s “Parents Guide To Colon Health For Children”

On here, DO NOT TAKE AS MEDICAL ADVICE FOR WHAT TO GIVE OR NOT GIVE!!

Consult your professional medical person I.e. doctor, before giving ANY home remedies. Including a enema

Submitted by DD for Hidradenitis Suppurativa

I was recently diognosed w HS. I just learned about Apple cider vinegar w the mother and organic. Just warm the ACV , wet a soft cloth(I cut up a T-shirt) and place over the cyst/abcess. Repeat up to six times a day until cool. If you have sensitive skin you can add purified sterile water to dilute. I'd be happy to learn if more home remedies. As I just finished antibiotics and it really hasn't helped.

Submitted anonymously for Pityriasis Rosea

This needs to be treated internally as well as externally

Immediately alkaline your body. cut ALL crappy foods immediately and drink tons of water and lemon water

Eat as much raw food (fruits and veggies) as possible and fresh smoothies and Probiotic foods (Kombucha, kimchee, greek yogurt etc.)

1) Take epsom salt baths 2x per week, don’t shower after just pad dry

2) Use 100\\% natural organic yellow african shea butter afterwards

3) Get as much natural sun exposure over your whole body as possible (NO SUN BEDS)

4) Try to get the supplement pure black seed oil and take daily

5) Incorporate green tea, turmeric tea, and most importantly Burdock root tea daily.

this should cure you up within a month although this can last up to 6 depending on how soon you start treating it.
