Many of us here did not grow up with a silver spoon in our mouth.
Sometimes money is scarce so we had to tap into our creative side to compensate for things we could not afford.
If you have a cold and can't afford a doctors visit, we have all heard about "warm tea, honey and lemon"
I also remember that my grandmother would make her own
bar soap (Please don't ask me what was in it)
In my family, we were raised to never use tooth paste.
My mom made our tooth paste from a mixture of
peroxide, baking soda and mint. I still do this and have never used actual tooth paste.
Please Share With Me a Home Remedy, or some Type of product That is "Home Made" Maybe someone in the community needs to know about a Home Remedy or product.
For sore throats, equal mix of local honey and lime juice. Tastes like a terrible candy but does WONDERS for throat infections and coughs.
For cuts, burns, difficult acne, or other skin issues, COLLODIAL SILVER. (And don't believe the hype about higher ppm is going to work better. It's bullshit.)
If you have a fungal infection under your nails ( feet or hands) soak them for 10 minutes in full strength Listerine ( or the equivalent generic product. It does not hurt and seems to work reliably. Keep the baths going for a week or two, and repeat them when needed.
Tooth paste is an artery clogger , she did you a solid . Kimbooshka Mushroom tea works just as good as Prozac or Zoloft . It's actually a liken slime that grows on the top of old tea that has set out for at least a week . It was everywhere 20 years ago , then a Hep. C scare came about & everyone got rid of it . It grows like crazy & you just need a little of it , with some sweet tea & your set . Years & years ago , I went to Tractor Supply or Southern States for Tetracyclene pack for $10 . Now days , that pack could save you every bit of $500 in doctor visits & Prescription costs , if not more . They were going to make it available over the counter , but the profession stopped it , of course . . . Some satates you need a rancher's license to get it , but others , no . I would say Rural King also sells it , but they were not around then . I have a book on how to make soap . Dozens of resipies !
Our brains shrink with age. Brains are 70% fat. Therefore good fats can ward this off. I have seen pictures of a brain that has shrunk. With two tablespoons of coconut oil every day these progressive picture showed the brain returning to normal. I have a student who was ready to be institutionalized. He eyes would roll back in his head and he had spells of unresponsiveness. Nobody in his family would do this so I decided to. When he would come every day for his lesson, I gave him a delicious, low sugar, organic chocolate protein shake with two or more melted tablespoons of coconut oil. He is now normal! He is functioning better than ever! So since I have begun to exhibit some memory problems, I, too, am taking this and I am better, too. TWO OR MORE TABLESPOONS OF COCONUT OIL DAILY FOR THE BRAIN.
This isn’t medicinal, and it isn’t completely home made, but here’s my contribution: I buy those washing machine scent booster pellets, and I dissolve some in hot water and put it in a spray bottle. They stay dissolved when the water cools, and I use it instead of Fabreeze or air freshener.
To avoid or lessen the effects of viral illnesses like colds and the flu, a zinc supplement may help. Zinc interferes with virus replication giving your body a chance to defend itself. In vitamins or Coldeze or generic zinc lozenges (Coldeze is pretty pricey, but it's better if you are coming down with it - faster acting, shortens the disease). Works for me, but there are issues with it (see reference). It may be it does work well and studies don't get funded becuase big pharma/medicine blocks them.
When I get sick I drink as much cheep alcohol as possible in the hottest environment I can get (2 peacoats, a hoodie, long sleeve shirt, 3 pairs of long johns, jeans and all the blankets. The idea is a fluid flush and utter dehydration to either flush out the illness or starve it to death. No eating.
