Home Remedies for Ankle Swelling Quickest Ways to Get Rid of it
It may affect both legs and may include the calves or even the thighs. But, most importantly, cut down on processed foods and fast foods, all of which are overflowing with salt.

Swollen ankles, feet and legs, referred to medically as edema, occur when fluid is retained in the spaces between body cells. While edema typically affects the feet, ankles and lower legs, it can also impact any area of the body, causing systemic symptoms.

Symptoms:
Initially, the feet, ankles and legs will appear swollen as the day progresses, but after a period of time, the swelling will set in first thing in the morning and continue to worsen throughout the day. Long-term edema causes pitting: When you press on the swollen area for a few seconds, you will notice an indentation in that area. Continued swelling can cause skin ulcerations.

Home Remedies for Ankle Swelling
Lift ankle so that the leg is straight in front of you on the sofa or on a chair. Place an ice pack, or ice in a plastic bag wrapped in a clean dish towel on the raised ankle.
Apply a cold pack to control the swelling, such as crushed ice in a plastic bag, a cold gel pack, or a bag of frozen peas or green beans. Wrap the cold pack in a dishcloth so that it does not contact your skin directly. When the pack warms up, refreeze it and reapply it later. I use two 12 x 18 in gel packs, so one is always in the freezer.

Vinegar To soothe tendinitis, sprains, strains, and general foot aches, alternate hot and cold vinegar wraps. First, heat equal amounts of vinegar and water. Soak a towel in the mixture, wring it out, and wrap it around your foot. Leave it wrapped for five minutes. Then mix equal parts vinegar and cold water and follow the same procedure. Repeat this entire sequence three times.

Cucumber is another great cure for swollen feet. Place a slice of cucumber on your foot and cover with a cotton cloth or bandage. Cucumber will absorb the fluid and speed recovery.

Lecithin seeds
Lecithin seeds are another effective home remedy for the treatment of Swelling of Feet during Pregnancy. Take 3-4 tablespoon of lecithin seeds every day for 2-3 month. This has a magical effect and shows great result within 2-3 months.

Sleeping or resting in one direction of your body (side turn) and keeping your legs raised using soft cushion reduces swelling of feet.

Boil 1-2 glass of water containing half tablespoon molasses (gud) and one tablespoon saunf, and boil it down to half. Leave it wrapped for five minutes. Duncan. Vessels and capillaries tear, leaking blood. Repeat this entire sequence three times.

Vitamin E-rich food
It is also found that Vitamin E-rich food is good for patients suffering from Swelling of Feet during Pregnancy. Some of the Vitamin E-rich food is spinach, almond oil, sweet potato, sunflower seeds, and wheat germs.

Exercise

Sit on the carpet and stretch your leg in the front, rotate your leg 10-15 times in a clockwise direction and then in the same way rotate in the anti-clock wise direction for 10-15 times. This reduces swelling of feet and improves blood circulation in the feet.

  9. QUESTION:
    Are there any home remedies for getting rid of flys attacking a dog's ears?
    We have a Husky that has flies that are attacking our dog's ears. His fur and flesh are raw and missing. They're getting bad and we need a home remedy to help get rid of them. They're just getting him and not the other dog we have. (chihuahua)
    We bought an over the counter medicine for him especially for that but it didn't do anything. Sometimes home remedies work better than medication.

    • ANSWER:
      go to vet and get an ear mite medication. its designed to limit the dirt in the ear canal, which can cause a nasty odor if left unkempt. so if the animal has a slight odor
      that's cause for ear infections which in this event attracts gnats and biting fly. I'd get them looked at, the vet can explain further.

      good luck

    What is some home remedies for coughing from allergies?
    What are some home remedies for a cough? I am taking Sudafead PE which helped break the stuff up but when i get up in the morning I am coughing really bad and can barely breathe for my throat and stuff being coated with the drainage. What is some stuff I can use that is usually around the house?

    • ANSWER:
      Honey often helps.
      Sudafed PE should not help, theoretically, as it is a decongestant (shrinks the swelling of the lining of your nose). If your cough is truly caused by allergies, a better choice would be loratidine (Claritin) or diphenhydramine (Benadryl).

    What home remedies can I use for my dogs skin?
    My dog had a bad flea problem. We have FINALLY gotten rid of the stupid things but my dog still scratches and his skin is very red. He even has a few spots that are bleeding. He has lost some hair but the Vet told us that it will grow back. Are there any home remedies that I can use to soothe this poor guys itching?

      there are no home remedies.

      Your dog is suffering from flea bite allergies.. the fleas are gone, but the bites caused an allergic reaction.. your dog itches and scratches.. the skin is irritated, so it gets even more itchy.. its a vicious cycle.

      Your best bet is to ask the vet about a cortizone shot to releive the itching and irritation.

  16. QUESTION:
    Any home remedies for getting rid of warts?
    I have a lot on my knee. maybe one or two on the other. I go to the skin doctor, and he freezes them but they come back as more warts. I don't want any more and i don't wanna see another doctor so does anyone have any wart removal home remedies?

    • ANSWER:
      if you really want to remove warts forever then you should know that you can remove warts by surgery, freezing, laser, acid or with cream but warts can reappear again and again because warts appears when your immune system is weak! so you must build up your immune system because your body can get rid of warts by itself if your immune system will be strong! so eat more healthy food, more vitamins and more sport activities!
      (No smoking, no beer/ale, no booze, no drugs, no junk food, no fast food garbage, no sugary sweet soda's. Get on a good, balanced, healthy diet including plenty of boiled or steamed vegetables. Drink P L E N T Y O F W A T E R , fruit juices & fat free milk. Snack on lots of RAW fruit & veggies. Get up one hour early every morning & take a BRISK 30 minute walk - then - do the same thing again in the evening after dinner. Make sure you eat a good, balanced breakfast daily. You get your energy for the day from your breakfast meal. Get 8 hours sleep each night. Flip your mattress over so it will level out to give you a good night's rest. Slack off too much coffee & tea.)

      HPV is the virus that causes warts. And HPV virus has many strains. In your case you have HPV virus strain number 2. People can be infected with HPV and never show any symptoms. Others will develop warts. These warts can stay the same size, grow, or go away on their own. It depends on the infected person's immune system. A healthy immune system means your body may be able to suppress the virus and not show symptoms.

      also you should use some herbal treatment!

      in that case Wartrol is really good (probably the best) product that gets rid of warts comparatively fast and makes you feel more confident knowing that they wont reappear again! it says that it is designed for Genital Warts but
      it does not matter because warts are warts and wartrol works by stimulating your immune system to fight the HPV virus that causes the warts. of course it is better if you use full course (5 months - if I remember correctly).

      It worked and still works for me!

      I do not know if any pharmacies carry Wartrol but I do know that you should purchase it directly from the manufacturer and read more about the product here http://www.wartrol.com/?aid=749165

      The advantage of Wartrol over other natural treatments for warts is that, since it is taken orally, it can also act on invisible warts that can't be treated by other creams and natural remedies.

      good luck!

    Do home remedies for Bacterial Vaginosis really work?
    I want to know if the home remedies really work before I try them. If they do, which one is the most effective?

  18. QUESTION:
    What home remedies are there for a locked jaw?
    For a few years, I've had a misaligned jaw and the left side cracked when I opened my mouth really wide. But for the past 2 weeks, the right side of my jaw has just gotten locked and I can't open my mouth completely without pain.

    I have read a lot about TMJ and people often advise seeing a dentist or chiropractor, but I was wondering whether anybody has any home remedies I can try first. I have tried massaging and putting a heating towel. Although the heating towel allowed me to open my mouth wider, it still didn't cure the problem.

    Also, I tend to sleep with my mouth open and I consistently sleep sideways, which I believe is what caused my misaligned jaw after years and years.

    Any advice on what I can do as a last resort before seeking professional help??

    Thanks!!

  21. QUESTION:
    Any home remedies for nails that break easily?
    I used to have really healthy nails that would always grow and stay long, but after I got gel nails couple of times, I can't grow my natural ones any more...I eat a lot of vegetables and fruits, and drink at least 6-8 glasses of water a day. Do you know any home remedies for nails that chip, peel and crack?

    • ANSWER:
      if theyre peeling their most likely dried out, for this you could try rubbing vasiline on them, if u dont have vasiline any other moisterizer will work just as good. make sure u rub it over the entire nail including the skin where the nail grows from :) .
      its not a home remedy but i know you can by nail hardening/strengthening nail polishes (they are normally clear), but to protect them you can paint them with any coloured nail polish just to give them extra strength and prevent them from drying out (mosterizing cream will still get to the nails even if you are wearing nail polish).
      its also important that ur nails are at an adequet length so to increase there strength. ive found that washing the dishes, and having baths or long showers wear my nails are prolonged to water makes them quite thin and weak so if doing the dishes i would wear gloves.

      the more calcium u eat/drink the tougher ur nails will be.

      another thing u can do is soak ur nails for 15mins in a beaten egg(u dnt need to use the whole thing) this wil make them more healthy( stronger, shinier, less chance of chiping and cracking)

      nails and hair are made of the same things, so if u think about the care u give ur hair eg. cleaning, moisterizing, ur nails need the same to be heathy :)

      :) sorry its long but i hope its helpful

  22. QUESTION:
    Any home remedies for breaking up chest congestion when you have a cold?
    I did the zycam-medicine thing, I drink plenty of fluids like soups and teas all day, but I have this dry cough and nothing is breaking up my congestion. Any home remedies?
    I don't have vics vapor rub in the house, so anything that doesn't require me going to the drugstore would help.
    Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      Try a hot bath. Hot as you can stand it--careful not to scald yourself. Soak in it for a while as the water cools down. It will definitely relax you and should help the congestion.

      Hot herbal tea or a fragrant tea such as Earl Grey or Oolong will also help. With a cold, time is your ally and friend. They usually run their course and break up on your own. The hot bath is also good if you are running a fever.

      I am very much a believer in the power of a hot bath. I take one every evening, regardless of how I am feeling. I'm 67 years young and have no issues with arthritis or joint pains.and I consider the hot bath to be the real Fountain of Youth.

      Reclining or lying down should also help reduce the drainage that is causing the cough. I've got one of those, too, darn it, and I'm taking Mentholyptus cough drops and drinking hot teas to relieve it.

  24. QUESTION:
    What home remedies can you use for fungus on yellow toenails?
    I have notice that my toenails have recently started changing into yellowish color is there like any home remedies to fix it? And like this white buildup is making my toenails thick.

    • ANSWER:
      Okay just search google for random ideas. But let me tell you this. Getting rid of toenail fungus takes constant applications for 6 months to a year. Seriously. That's how long it takes to get rid of it. So before it gets worse, and before you try stuff that probably don't work, just go and buy an OTC fungal cream for toenails since you KNOW that will work. Don't waste your time.
      If you want to experiment the only 'home remedy' is tea tree oil, but this is very irritating to a lot of people and you have to be careful about the 'dosage' you apply. Plus keep your nails clean and dry obviously.

      The OTC stuff can only be applied to 2 or POSSIBLY 3, but I think 2 is the maximum you can treat at a time. Over the entire year/half year. So run out now and get some!! Before you get it in your other toes!
      If it gets into all 5 you will be at it for a possible 3 years!!

    • ANSWER:
      Honey and lemon mask was probably the best for me. Honey kills the bacteria and helps moisturize the skin and lemon drys up pimples and allows the skin to shed itself. Then I follow that with a bit of cucumber to help calm the redness. Also, using lemon juiceon it's on is good for acne and post acne marks. Another good home remedy is using potatoe juice. Potatoe juice contains sulfur which is great for breakouts. Using an egg white mask is perfect for acne as well. It tighens pores and helps brighten the skn.

  39. QUESTION:
    Are there any home remedies for dogs with diarrhea?
    I just rescued a 8 year old Schnoodle and now she is experiencing loose stools. I think it's the anxiety of being in a new place with new people. Is there any home remedies to try at home before going to the vet and spending alot of money?

    • ANSWER:
      go to the grocery store and pick up a can of canned pumpkin (not pie filling, you want 100% real pumpkin. shouldnt be more than for a large can). Give her a spoonful. It is a miracle worker for loose poop, and also can help with constipation :P

      If that doesnt help in the next day or two, put her on a bland diet of boiled plain chicken and rice. If that doesnt help in another day or two, it's time to call the vet, it may be an underlying issue.

  40. QUESTION:
    Strep throat home remedies for a person with cirrhosis of the liver?
    My bro has no insurance so he can't go to doctor. He has strep troath and needs some home remedies that won't hurt his cirrhosis of the liver?

    • ANSWER:
      Hi Sol

      I have healing remedies for both mentioned.

      Cause
      Sore throats are usually caused by viral infections, but can also be due to bacterial infections, tonsillitis, overuse of the voice, exposure to irritating substances such as cigarette smoke, allergic reactions, infections of the mouth, and/or colds and flu.

      Caution: Sore throats are rarely serious. However, if your sore throat does not heal within two weeks, and/or occurs with a rash, seek immediate medical attention. If any sore throat occurs with a rash, see a doctor. A sore throat caused by a Streptococcal infection (strep throat) must be identified and treated, or else it could create rheumatic fever or acute glomerulonephritis (disease of the glomerulus, a network of blood capillaries of the kidney).

      --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

      Natural Cures

      Aromatherapy: Inhalations with benzoin, lavender, thyme, eucalyptus, geranium, lavender, clary sage, or sandalwood can help relieve symptoms.

      Diet: Increase your intake pure filtered water, hot herbal teas, diluted fruit juices, and broths. Eat an organic whole foods diet that emphasizes fresh vegetables and vegetable soups. Avoid all sugars, alcohol, milk and dairy products and any and all foods to which you are allergic or sensitive. Raw organic honey placed at the back of the throat can also help soothe symptoms and speed healing.

      Flower Essences: Crab Apple.

      Herbs: If your sore throat is due to an infection, chew a small piece of osha root (Ligusticum porteri) and/or gargle with an infusion of sage or licorice. For a sore throat due to smoke or pollution irritation, gargle with an infusion of lavender or hyssop. Other useful herbs include echinacea, garlic, ginger, goldenseal, and slippery elm.

      Juice Therapy: Drinking the juice of one or two red potatoes can soothe symptoms.

      Nutritional Supplementation: The following nutrients can be helpful: vitamin A, beta carotene, vitamin C with bioflavonoids, and zinc (in the form of lozenges taken every 1-2 hours unless nausea occurs, in which case decrease dosage).

      Cause
      Liver function can be impaired by a toxic bowel. Most pharmaceutical drugs, if taken on a consistent basis, can also cause liver disease. If you are on such medications, be sure to have your liver function monitored regularly (every 3-6 months) by your physician, and consider other healing alternatives that might reduce or eliminate your need for medications.

      Caution: Serious cases of cirrhosis require immediate medical attention.

      --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

      Natural Cures

      Aromatherapy: Juniper, rosemary, and rose essential oils can all help stimulate liver function.

      Detoxification: Liver function can also be impaired by a toxic bowel. For this reason, bowel cleansing and rejuvenation techniques may be very important. In severe cases, repeat the bowel cleanse once a month, or as needed, and stay on bowel nutrients for up to one year depending on the severity of your condition and your response to treatment.

      Diet: Diet is extremely important in preventing and reversing all forms of liver disease, including cirrhosis. Eat a low-protein, whole foods diet of organic foods, including seeds, nuts, whole grains, beans, nuts, and goat or rice milk, and also eat plenty of leafy green vegetables. Avoid all alcohol and processed fats such as margarine, hydrogenated oils, and foods with these oils added, rancid oils, and hardened vegetable fats. Instead, use cold-processed oils such as olive. Also increase your consumption of foods high in amino acids and potassium, such as nuts, seeds, bananas, raisins, rice, wheat bran, kelp, dulse, brewer`s yeast, and molasses, and drink plenty of pure, filtered water. Avoid animal protein as well as raw or undercooked fish, and limit your overall intake of fish.

      Also avoid all stressors on the liver, such as overeating, drugs of any kind, a highly processed diet (especially one high in processed fats, additives and preservatives), and foods high in animal protein, and accumulation of toxins from chemicals that have to be processed by the liver such as alcohol, drugs, acetaminophen, insecticides, and chemicals from rancid and processed oils. Toxins from Candida yeast organisms within the body can also contribute to liver stress, as can the use of contraceptives.

      Herbs: Milk thistle is an excellent herb to help in the treatment of cirrhosis because it helps liver cells regenerate. It may be taken in the form of tablets or the non-alcohol extract called a glycerate. The dose is based upon the content of silymarin (the active ingredient of milk thistle) and so standardized extracts are preferable. The typical dosage range is 70-200 mg of silymarin daily. The herb Picrorhiza kurroa is not as well-known as milk thistle, but may have similar effects. Licorice can also be helpful. The Chinese herb bupleurum (chai-hu) may also be helpful, as can the herbal mixture of kutki (200 mg), shanka pushpi (500 mg), and guduchi (300 mg), with is used by practitioners of Ayurvedic medicine to boost liver function. Take 1/4 teaspoon of this mixture taken twice a day, after lunch and dinner, with aloe vera juice.

      Hydrotherapy: Hydrotherapy is the application of water, ice, steam and hot and cold temperatures to maintain and restore health. Treatments include full body immersion, steam baths, saunas, sitz baths, colonic irrigation and the application of hot and/or cold compresses. Hydrotherapy is effective for treating a wide range of conditions and can easily be used in the home as part of a self-care program. Many Naturopathic Physicians, Physical Therapists and Day Spas use Hydrotherapy as part of treatment.
      *Purified water is essential for any hydrotherapy treatment. The section Remedies for Treating Chlorinated Bath Water offers clear instructions and recommendations.

      Juice Therapy: The following juices can help the liver eliminate toxins that cause stress on it: beet and carrot juice and wheat grass juice. To either juice, you can add raw flaxseed oil and garlic as tolerated.

      Nutritional Supplementation: Lipotrophic factor nutrients are essential for aiding liver function. These include vitamin C, vitamin E, silymarin, lipoic acid, and raw liver tablets. Other useful nutrients in this regard include vitamin B complex, vitamin B12, folic acid, niacin (in small doses such as 10-30 mg. three times), liver glandulars, digestive enzymes with hydrochloric acid (HCL) and ox bile extract, and the amino acids L-methionine, L-carnitine, L-cysteine, L-glutathione, and L-arginine.

      Caution: For all cases of liver disease, do not use more than 10,000 IU of vitamin A daily and avoid cod liver oil entirely.

      Alternative Professional Care
      If your symptoms persist despite the above measures, seek the help of a qualified health professional. The following professional care therapies have all been shown to be useful for treating and relieving the symptoms of cirrhosis: Acupuncture, Cell Therapy, Detoxification Therapy, Magnetic Field Therapy, Natural Hormone Replacement Therapy, Naturopathic Medicine, Reflexology, Qigong, and Traditional Chinese Medicine.

      Best of health to both of you

  41. QUESTION:
    What are home remedies for morning sickness?
    I'm 9 weeks and 5 days pregnant and this morning sickness is really kicking my butt. Is their any Home remedies i can do to stop the sickness being so bad?

    • ANSWER:
      The most important thing right now is to stay hydrated. You really don't want to be dehydrated, so drink as much as possible. Take small sips so as not to overwhelm your stomach. Water can sometimes hurt an empty stomach, so try ginger ale with the bubbles stirred out (carbonation can also hurt your stomach), powerade or gatorade, or juice, if you can manage it.

      If you do get dehydrated, don't wait--go to the emergency room and get fluids intravenously. It's not fun, but it will make you feel better and break the vicious cycle of dehydration.

      Other things that might work for you are popsicles or ices, and fruit--a lot of miserably pregnant women find that they CAN eat fruit, so try out different kinds if that appeals at all. For me, I found that I could eat (at different times) strawberries, grapefruit, and thinly sliced golden delicious apples. It was weirdly specific, but it kept me alive!

      You should try having very small "meals"--a bite of a cracker here and there when you can stomach it. A lot of people find that keeping crackers or something light next to their bed and taking a few bites before they even get out of bed in the morning. You will feel worse if your stomach is empty, so keeping food in it--even just a little bit--will help stave off the misery.

      You might also want to try adding peanut butter to your crackers. Peanut butter has protein, which will make you feel better if you can keep it down.

      If nothing else works, ask your doctor for medication like reglan or zofran to help.

      Good luck!

  42. QUESTION:
    Any natural home remedies for getting rid of a cold?
    I have a runny nose and sore throat with some sneezing. Is this a cold or alergies maybe. I'm not sure if i'm alergic to anything. Is there any good home remedies that can help?

    • ANSWER:
      HOME REMEDIES FOR COMMON COLD
      * Vitamins are most helpful in fighting against the cold as well as other diseases. Vitamin C, also known as Ascorbic Acid, is helpful in preventing the colds and it can be found in many foods such as citrus fruits, some vegetables.
      * Zinc is also helpful for cold that can cut colds short. When you first feel that you may be getting a cold, start taking zinc
      * Garlic, as well as onion, is sometimes taken for the relief of congestion and minor infections.
      * Horseradish is another herb that has an excellent property to treat sore throat and upper respiratory tract infections, reduces fever, and expels concentrations of mucus.
      * Another effective remedy for sore throat is to gargle with a strong solution of table salt and warm water. Gargle several times a day.
      * Echinacea is an herb that acts as nature's antibiotic. It helps to increase the body's immunity and thus helps in fighting against the infection and illness.
      * Goldenseal is another herb that acts as a natural antibiotic, and can be taken to help fight against the cold.
      * Add 1/4 teaspoon of table salt to about 5 ml lukewarm water. Use this solution as a nasal drop. Use 1 to 2 drops in each nostril about 3 to 4 times daily.
      * A ginger tea can be prepared by boiling ginger in normal tea. It gives relief to congested nose.
      * Drink a teaspoonful of ginger juice mixed with equal quantity of honey.
      * Take hot water in a bowl and put some Thyme leaves. Inhale vapors by covering head with a towel.
      * Add 1 tablespoon of honey, 1 shot of lemon juice, 1 shot of whiskey to a coffee cup. Fill the remainder of the coffee cup with steaming hot water, stir, and sip until cold is relieved.
      * Make hot chicken soup with lots of garlic. Have when hot. It will help unclog nasal passage.
      * Warm ¼ katori mustard; add 4-5 cloves of chopped garlic. Apply this on nose, chest and back. Cover up and sleep.
      * Boil half a bowl of water, add few drops of eucalyptus oil and inhale the steam.
      * Sage is used to cure sore throat, stuffed nose, gingivitis and coughs, is a powerful antiviral, antibacterial and antifungal. Use as a gargle.
      * Warm up coconut oil. Gently massage the coconut oil over the child’s chest for about 5 minutes. Repeat the same on the upper portion of the back. The massage should be given just before child goes to sleep.
      * Avoid sugar (even natural sources) as it can impair immune function. Orange juice contains a much higher level of sugar than vitamin C. Therefore consuming lots of orange juice during a cold may do more harm than good.
      * Chilies, especially Jalapeno, are the best, most available and most effective antiviral.
      * Elderberry has been used for centuries to treat colds and flu. Recent research indicates that elderberry fruit extract may de-activate cold and flu viruses by preventing them from replicating.
      * A diet rich in fresh fruits, vegetables, salads, low saturated fats and whole cereals will provide protection against infective organism. Raw fruits and vegetables are better than the cooked one.
      * Take 1 tbsp of fresh gooseberry juice with 1/2 tsp ginger. It is a very effective remedy. This can be taken regularly to prevent recurrence of cold.
      * A tablespoon of ajwain crushed in the palms and tied up in a thin kerchief can be used for inhalation to relieve nasal block.
      * Boil 1 tbsp of pepper powder in a cup of milk along with a pinch of turmeric. Add some sugar for taste. Drink this once a day for three days.

  46. QUESTION:
    What natural home remedies can I use to improve my dog's dry & Flaky coat?
    I had recently switched her food with bad results. Now her skin is dry and flaky. I have taken her off the new food, but am looking for natural home remedies that I can use to improve her coat condition.

    • ANSWER:
      Having dry flaky skin when changing foods can be normal, especially when going from a lower quality to a higher quality food. Your dog's body is "detoxifying" which could cause the coat/skin changes until the dog's body becomes acclimated to the new food. You should give the new food a few weeks before writing it off. Also, don't switch cold turkey. Always mix more old food with new, and then slowly less old food and more new food until you are feeding only the new food. That will help with the transition and also alleviate diarrhea problems.

      You can give your dog a boiled egg, or purchase the supplement for skin and coat that you can pump on to the dogs food to help with the dryness and flaking.

      Hope this helps!

    Ok, no way to be pregnant. There are reasons for the nausea but I need to know if there are any home remedies that will make it go away. Do you know any thing?

    • ANSWER:
      peppermint. I work in a hospital and we sometimes use peppermint oil on cotton balls to scent the air in people's rooms when they have nausea. You can get essential oil of peppermint at a health store, or try something cheaper from the grocery or drug store. You can also buy peppermint tea, but if she is really pukey- she probably would not want to drink anything.

    What good home remedies are there for sensitive skin that breaks out often?
    I am asian, and I have acne (or actually... a few 'remains' of acne) but my skin continues to break out. Most of this is genetic, but are there any good home remedies to make zits 'disappear'? I've heard of lemon juice... But my skin is kind of sensitive so I'm not sure how it will work.

    My mom has suggested and she is wanting to buy Proactiv for me but she's hasn't gotten to it... but almost a year. I'm not allowed to go shopping by myself yet, so what inexpensive home remedies are there?

    Thanks ^_^

    • ANSWER:
      With my experience with Proactiv, I wouldn't recommend buying it. It didn't do anything for me, and I used it exactly as directed. Test out some over the counter face washes. They sell make-up that covers and treats acne at the same time. Be careful with make-up because it only makes the situation worse.

  49. QUESTION:
    Any natural home remedies that worked for you?
    I want my breasts to grow a cup size or two, with all natural home remedies and massages. Any suggestions?

    • ANSWER:
      There are creams for sale on amazon etc. Some cost hundreds - none has really been shown to work.

      Massage there are not scientific studies just individual reports that a focused twice daily massage of breast and nipples can cause increases. The problem is that most women find extended nipple massage sexually arousing and arousal caused breast engorgement in about 50% of women. this increased blood flow can result in increases of up to a full cup but generally speaking this goes away as sexual stimulation ceases.

      There is a truth to the fact the firm nipple massage involving nipple pinching and pulling releases some hormones that can influence development - but as I stated there is no proof outside of hormone release if women actually see any permanent growth

All Home Remedies

All About Re+5 Keratin Treatment
I have tried almost every new concept on my hair. The perming, straightening, coloring, highlighting, teasing, curling, braiding and styling in almost every way imaginable (except I've never been too short). So it is not surprising that I decided to do one of the latest trends in hair care - the Re+5 Keratin treatment.

You may ask, what is the Re+5 Keratin treatment actually? Well, it's a treatment for smoothing and straightening hair that helps your hair virtually maintenance free as well as frizz free. It is ideal for those with hair that tends to be frizzy and responds poorly to moisture, like mine, and also gives great deal of added luster to your hair, so it makes it look much healthier.

This Re+5 Keratin treatment lasts between 3-5 months, depending on how often you wash your hair because the keratin does gradually and naturally flowing out of hair little by little, so those who do not shampoo too often are kinda lucky. The cost of this procedure, which lasts two to two and a half hours, usually runs up to 0 per hour, depending on the length of your hair.

This means the total bill will be between $ 300 and $ 400 for the treatment process, and also you have to buy a special shampoo for it which usually costs about $ 35 for a large bottle, so after the whole process and some after-treatment products, with the tip and shampoo, you're probably facing with an almost 0 bill, more or less. My bill came to be about $ 485, as I have long hair. The process took two hours to me, and it was not all bad at all.

I have had thermal reconditioning before as well (also known as Japanese straightening), whose process took about five hours in total and cost a bit more. It is said to last longer though, and the hair will be so poker straight that maybe not everyone is happy about that because the lacking in body for a while.

The Japanese straightening also has a very distinct smell in the process, while the Re+5 Keratin treatment I had did not smell at all during the process. A slightly dull smell did come out for the three days following the treatment, but it was not so bad.

Let's talk about the process and my experience now, and finally, my review of what I think about it. I reached the salon at 3:30. The technician told me about what to expect, and looked at my hair to gauge the texture and condition of my hair. She told me that I would surly love my hair when it was done. She took me to the shampoo chair and washed my hair with Re+5 keratin purifying shampoo, to make it more porous so that the keratin can deeply penetrate into the hair. I asked her about the product. "Re+5 keratin is specialized in keratin treatment. Its performance is as great as some local brands while the price is much lower because it is made in China", she explained.

When my hair was clean, my technician took me back to the styling chair where she blew it dry completely, which I thought it a nightmare to see a giant bale of hay on my head. Then she went and mixed the Re+5 Brazilian Keratin hair treatment and came back, pinning my hair into sections and painting the mixture on it with a brush until it was completely saturated.

Then she set a timer for twenty minutes, and I sat there and read a magazine, almost falling asleep I might add. She returned in twenty minutes, took me back to the shampoo chair and rinsed out the product. I'm not sure if there was a neutralizer or any other type of solution added to my hair at the time because I was so relaxed that I could hardly notice anything since getting my hair done always makes me a zombie.

I noticed that there was no strong chemical smell during the whole process this time. I was a bit surprised, especially after having had so many treatments, the Japanese straightening, cold smoothing, and hair coloring, which all smelled very strong. My scalp did not burn or itch at all either. I am not sure if that's just the brand they used or what, but that gave me a good feeling of its safety. Now we were down to the wire. Finally I was going to see the results of this amazing keratin treatment. She blew dry my hair again, then divided it into sections and flat iron them one by one, from root to tip. She warned me that my hair would look very flat in the next three days, just like someone plastered them in the head. But I have been used to that since the same thing had happened with the thermal reconditioning.

She also suggested that it was important that I can not get my hair wet for the next 72 hours. Also I was not allowed to sweat, which means that I could not be working out for the next three days either. I was advised not to put any type of hair tie or hair clips in my hair, and not even tucking my hair behind ears because of the moldable hair shape after treatment while the product maintained over the next two days.

When the flat ironing is finished, I could not believe how shiny my hair looked. Besides it was so straight very very straight! Almost too straight, but I knew that it would not be exactly as straight as it was all the time. The hair itself looked great, but I admit I felt terrible seeing me with absolutely zero body to my hair. The next three days were suffering.

The hardest part was not getting any moisture on it. You can't imagine how difficult it is to do that when you're around water. You still have to shower. So I wore a shower cap and only wished that it would keep every drop of water. It worked well except for a few drops when I took it off my head.

My hair looked great when I left the salon, regardless of the plain which was very difficult for me to deal with. And it looked a little duller and even flatter the next day. However, I knew that as soon as they were washed, it would look much better. FINALLY, the third day came, and I immediately washed my hair with the special sodium laurel sulfate free shampoo (Re+5 keratin daily shampoo and conditioner). BTW, sodium can take the keratin out of hair fast, so any products with sodium or sodium-based ingredients is advised to be avoided, according to my technician.

I blew the hair dry. Wow, that seemed amazing! It was not as completely poker straight as when I got the thermal reconditioning done, but shiny, no frizz, and looked very healthy. It was so soft and silky that makes you want to touch it. I really like the result because you can have some natural wave.

So that's my review of the Re+5 Keratin treatment. I would recommend it to anyone who wants hair to be more manageable with less maintenance, and anyone who wants to eliminate the frizz and some of the curls of hair, especially during the summer months we have here in Ohio where humidity reaches ridiculous levels.

    Have all home remedies for cat medical care extinct?
    I am unable to take my cat to the vet at this point because the president gave my husbands job to foriegners and he had to take a job which pays 1/3 of what he was making and I am unable to aquire employment because all the good jobs are going overseas so it's helpful to know about home remedies.

  2. QUESTION:
    have hard small pimples with dark brown color all over its sides.. Any home remedies?
    I have these small hard pimple like bumps. I tried to prick them but they are very hard and wont open up and it hurts whenever i try to do that. There is so much dark brown color all surrounding those pimples. It looks really disgusting. Are there any possible home remedies for this ?

    • ANSWER:
      You have what's called a "Blackhead" or AKA "open comedo". It's mostly dirt and bacteria trapped within the pore. In your situation, the (brown) dirt is deep so you need to pressure beneath it. I recommend cleansing it out with "Salicylic acid" you can find it in wal-mart or whatever. You may take out the blackheads the same way you popped out the pimple BUT your problem now is to clean out the pore with the Salicylic acid to disinfect EVERYDAY until those pore eventually becomes smaller. If you don't keep your face clean and keep popping the acnes, you'll get more blackheads as a result of more dirt+bacteria being trapped in there.

      For Acne solutions:
      As a DERMATOLOGIST, I would say common treatments may not be the answer. Example... patients using Benzol Peroxide may have a reaction in which irritates their skin even more and would have only some effects on the Acne vulgaris (Common form of Acne on the face). (Tretinoin) such as Retin-A may be the answer for them. Another word, each individual person will respond to each medication in a different way. I am a dermatologist but I can't say which medication would best fit you over the internet. My best suggestion is... first try out "over-the-counter medication" such as Benzol Peroxide. If that does not solve your problem, you need to see a local dermatologist. These medications treats Acne Vulgaris and also Propionibacterium acnes, which are caused from bacteria. You need to wash the face with disinfectant soap/face wash EVERYDAY.

      Other possibility includes:
      -genetics ( your uncle Phil, your aunt Lisa, your grandpa/grandma)
      -puberty(from increase in hormones)

      Alternatives for adults still encountering Acne:
      - Injections
      - Pills
      - Laser Skin Treatments

      "Pimple Marks"
      Pimple marks we call "Acne scars" these aftermath scars are caused because you agitated your inflammations. Either making them more red, or just popping them out. You can get rid of those scars by bleach cream. The most common is [Hydroquinone] 4% USP. As a dermatologist, the most common I prescribe is "Lusta-AF (4% USP) w/sunscreen" I suggest if you are interested in getting rid of aftermath scars, you need to use bleach cream and STAY INDOOR. Sunscreen or not, these medications will mess up your skin even more if you are exposed to sunlight.

    • ANSWER:
      Once hair is damaged, it's damaged. There is no bringing it back. All you can do is make it look healthy, it will never be healthy till you chop it off though.

    I have very dry cough for past 2 weeks, tried all home remedies like honey and ginger, steam, gorgle with saline water, took some cough mixture, got Chest X - ray done too, which is clear. Can anyone tell how to get rid of this dry cough which is killing me and am not been able to get sleep for many nights?

      Hi,
      The cough can be taken care of at home.

      Following tips can help you.

      Pl. avoid smoking.

      Drink extra fluids to help thin secretions and make them easier to cough up.

      Glyceryl guaiacolate (guaifenesin) is available without prescription and may help liquefy the mucous. Drink lots of fluids if taking this medication.

      Dry, tickling coughs can be relieved by sucking on cough lozenges or hard candy.

      Well try and keep off coffee because I find that makes it worse. Try switching to tea for a while and see if that helps. For me I drink some herbal tea and take a bath. The moisture and calming helps me alot. I did some checking up. Here are some other home remidies:

      Primrose oil, is an anti-inflammatory agent, that keeps the blood vessels from constricting.

      Multivitamin and mineral formula, they are necessary daily to complement the nutrients we do not include in our diet.

      Rutin, removes toxic metals which may cause migraines.

      Garlic, is a potent detoxifier.
      Vitamin C with bioflavonoids, helps in producing an anti stress adrenal hormone and enhances immunity.

      Cordyceps, reduce anxiety and stress, and at the same time promote sleep.

      Hope It Helps!

    Like for instance our mom would tell us if your constipated, use cayenne pepper in soup, or if you got a burn use the leaf of an aloe vera plant and rub the infected area to relieve the pain. Lastly rub an ice cube on the palm of your hand to relief migrane headaches. What other remedies do you know for illnesses?

    • ANSWER:
      Colon cleanse to help everything. Also, the last 5 years I've been using MSM every day to give me energy with no jitters; excellent benefits only. No side effects. Also, I drink Alfalfa -- sometimes I take chlorella to boost my system. Also, CoQ10 seems to help me greatly. Cayenne improves your circulation also. It's great to get rid of sore throats. I gargle with it after I gargle with warm salt water to kill germs. It seems to get rid of it right away. I wonder if it kills germs or if it's just boosting my mucus to eliminate anything.

      I really don't know which place you are from, but in India the Neem tree leaves (Azadirachta indica - scientific name) are made into a paste and mixed with honey + turmeric powder. Its the best thing. Ive used that all my teen life and it works wonders.

      Jenny, whom you so nicely called "stupid", knows exactly what she is talking about. You are the one who is challenged. You asked a question, got the answer, and don't want to hear it. Tough. Read the links above and then tell us that there are "home" remedies for a condition that can cause a horrifically painful death if not treated by a vet. And then try them on your dog and hopefully, I will be near to call Animal Control and have you charged with neglect.

      And I, who am also probably "stupid" am the proud owner of two Red Mange survivors and have treated so many rescue dogs with Mange that you probably can't count that high......

    Any good Home Remedies for being sick all the time?
    Ok I am 15 weeks pregnant, and have past the morning sickness stage, thank god!! Anyway I am still sick all the time though. I have horrible headaches but I can only take tylenol, and I recently caught a cold and am finding that I can't take enough of any particular medicine to kick the cold. Does anybody have any ideas on what I can do? I am just tired of being sick all the time.

    • ANSWER:
      Yes water and vitamins are great. You can also try hot teas when you have a cold (like peppermint or rasberry are OK, peppermint helps clear the head from stuffiness). You can also try rinsing, gargling, or nose sprays w/ strong salt water for colds or if your headaches are related to allergies. And get your rest!

      I swear by 'MUM dry, shower fresh' (the blue one) in a roll on. I have never had a problem with sweat or B.O with it and it doesn't have that fruity/citrus smell which can sometimes smell a little gross by the end of the day. It smells like baby powder and holds its fragrance all day. I love it, only down side is it does leave white residue on my black clothes, but i just try n remember to wipe the area of clothing with a damp cloth before I leave home. Any way, its really good.

  19. QUESTION:
    Why is everyone obsessed with all-home remedies?
    I see people answering health questions all the time saying to go to that website even though it doesn't make sense.

    • ANSWER:
      They are plugging a product they believe in and want to push onto the public.

      However, I feel that some people have a mania about not wanting to take medications for illnesses. And so, the imagine that a vitamin or supplement will do the same job as the medication....and that's just not true!
      However, they are soooooooooo paranoid about medications and get all worked up over the side effects that they forget that most supplements and too much of any vitamin has terrible side effects too.
      And most times vitamins and supplements are even more expensive than the medication they need.
      It just amazes me!

      They aren't spam or scams, they're malware and clicking opening the link may damage your computer.

      YA askes that you report them giving the reason as 'malware'; they will almost always be immediately removed.

      Other versions begin:

      'I'm a doctor, take (name of drug'. I think you want to know more about it...link'

      'I found this awesome site with some wonderful options for you...link.'

      'About it you can find etc'

      They often end by urging you to keep using YA.

      They're easy to spot; the account will have been opened that same day, and they will have given exactly the same answer to a large number of questions.

      These posts are the reason level one users are no longer allowed to post live links.

      As soon as you can afford it get her to a vet.

  35. QUESTION:
    I have a cocker spaniel and I have tried all types of flea medication from home remedies to going to the vet.?
    is there anything that will positively work?

    • ANSWER:
      Most home remedies do not work at all, some may help, but are mostly not effective enough.
      Really the best is to call your vet so he/she can prescribe the safest and most effective and at the proper dosage for your dog. There are many pet store products but again many do not work and some can be down right dangerous. Many pets are unintentionally poisoned every day by their well meaning and loving owners with some of these preps. Most vets these days prescribe once monthly liquids that are placed between the shoulder blades Advantage, revolution Frontline.
      Something you also need to do is deal with the house too. They are for sure there too. Possibly the yard as well if you are in an area that isn't cold yet.
      Your vet can also provide some spray for the house. Note all these preps contain insecticides so MUST** be used as directed for safety. You are going to need to vac thoroughly and toss the bag right out as soon as done and reapply the spray and vac every week for at least a few to get them all. Adult fleas feed lay eggs, the eggs hatch and the babies are ready to feed immediately and lay eggs starting that whole cycle over again.

  36. QUESTION:
    HELP! My friend has terrible migranes all the time! Is there any home remedies my friend can do?
    My friend is in her 30's and has went to the Doc's about her migraines. They can't help her basically. Is there anything she can do to help relieve some of the pain? One day she took 4000mg of motrin! Nothing is working. Please help me help her!

    Is there any truth to ginger helping?

    • ANSWER:
      Your friend should have stronger medication around than just motrin. Something like Imatrex. For that she needs to be evaluated by a headache specialist which is usually a Neurologist.

      With any migraine identifying the triggers is the first step (i.e. hormonal fluctuations, chocolate, red wine etc.); and then avoiding the triggers.

      Chiropractic has shown beneficial improvements in many cases for my patients. Migraines don't go away but chiropractic can help them come less frequently, last less time, and be less painful.

      However, the best thing in my practice by far is AVE (audio visual entrainment). It improves blood flow to the brain and has been shown in many scientific studies to reduce the symptoms of migraines. Google it and you should be able to find some additional information.

      No amount of medication is good for the body, especially that much. You friend should also consider taking something to help the liver process these medications. Something like Milk Thistle with 2% silymarin will help.

      I hope this helps your friend.

  49. QUESTION:
    does anyone know any home remedies to get rid of ants? we have them all in our house.?

    • ANSWER:
      give these cheap, natural and science-based ant remedies a try:

      1. Vinegar
      Wipe down your countertops, cupboards and any other places where you've spotted ants with a 50-50 mixture of white vinegar and water. Repeat throughout the day to maintain the efficacy.

      Why This Works: Two reasons, really: ants hate the smell of vinegar, and it removes the scent trails that they use to get around

      2. Difficulty: Easy Time Required: 10 minutes Here's How: Mix boric acid, sugar and water in small dish.
      Place absorbent material into jar.
      Pour boric acid solution over the absorbent material.
      Screw lid onto jar and punch holes in the lid.
      Place jar on its side, next to containers.
      Replenish mixture once a month.

      Move containers around to keep ants from setting up their nests. Moving every couple of days will be enough. You only need to move container enough so that the bottom is on new ground.
      Some ants are not bothersome but are unsightly. Find out what variety of ant you have and see if they need to be removed at all.
      What You Need:
      1 glass jar with lid
      1 cup sugar
      2 cups of water
      3 teaspoons or 3 capsules of Boric acid
      Absorbant material, such as cotton balls or fabric

      3. Chalk/ Baby Powder
      Draw a line of chalk or sprinkle baby powder across the spot where the ants are entering your home.

      Why This Works: Talcum powder, an ingredient in both chalk and baby powder, is a natural ant repellent. Just be careful if you decide to use it: some studies have linked talc to cancer.

      4. Borax (see #2 above also)
      Mix together equal parts Borax and either syrup or jelly. Then, place where the ants will find it.

      Why This Works: Once consumed, Borax damages both the ants' digestive systems and their outer skeletons, resulting in death.

      5. Herbs/Spices
      Spinkle cinnamon, mint, chili pepper, black pepper, cayenne pepper, cloves or garlic – whichever one you happen to have – in the area where you've seen ants and along your home's foundation. Bay leaves can also be placed in cabinets, drawers and containers to further deter those pesky critters.

      Why This Works: Many plants – including the ones listed – give off a strong scent to repel ants and other insects in the wild, and it works just as well in your home.

      6. Coffee Grounds
      Sprinkle your used coffee grounds in the garden and around the outside of your house.

      Why This Works: Ants are repelled by the scent given off by the grounds; and incidentally, so are cats.

      7. Cucumber/Citrus Peels
      Leave the peelings in areas of known ant activity.

      Why This Works: Cucumber and citrus peels are toxic to the types of fungi that ants feed on, and therefore avoided by the ants.

      go to vet and get an ear mite medication. its designed to limit the dirt in the ear canal, which can cause a nasty odor if left unkempt. so if the animal has a slight odor
      that's cause for ear infections which in this event attracts gnats and biting fly. I'd get them looked at, the vet can explain further.

What is some stuff I can use that is usually around the house?

    What home remedies are there to get rid of blackheads and pimples? Also what could I do to clean out my pores and prevent new pimples, that is a home remedy also.

    • ANSWER:
      Orange peels,(if you dont want to do that yourself,theres an orange peel mask at the Body Shop),And theres one that uses dairy product so thats not vegan. . .
      I have this Indian thing called Chandan and you need this thing to make it but I dont think its available in America.Other than that I dont know many natural remedies.

      But the stuff at Clinique is good,and at the Body Shop the tea tree cream is good and theres also on the spot tea tree oil extract which is good.Basically using tea tree oil is good.And at the Body Shop they probably also have a tea tree face wash.And the stuff at the Body Shop is made from fruits and plants and its really good.

  22. QUESTION:
    What home remedies can I use for my dogs skin?
    My dog had a bad flea problem. We have FINALLY gotten rid of the stupid things but my dog still scratches and his skin is very red. He even has a few spots that are bleeding. He has lost some hair but the Vet told us that it will grow back. Are there any home remedies that I can use to soothe this poor guys itching?

    • ANSWER:
      there are no home remedies.

      Your dog is suffering from flea bite allergies.. the fleas are gone, but the bites caused an allergic reaction.. your dog itches and scratches.. the skin is irritated, so it gets even more itchy.. its a vicious cycle.

      Your best bet is to ask the vet about a cortizone shot to releive the itching and irritation.

  26. QUESTION:
    Any home remedies for getting rid of warts?
    I have a lot on my knee. maybe one or two on the other. I go to the skin doctor, and he freezes them but they come back as more warts. I don't want any more and i don't wanna see another doctor so does anyone have any wart removal home remedies?

    • ANSWER:
      if you really want to remove warts forever then you should know that you can remove warts by surgery, freezing, laser, acid or with cream but warts can reappear again and again because warts appears when your immune system is weak! so you must build up your immune system because your body can get rid of warts by itself if your immune system will be strong! so eat more healthy food, more vitamins and more sport activities!
      (No smoking, no beer/ale, no booze, no drugs, no junk food, no fast food garbage, no sugary sweet soda's. Get on a good, balanced, healthy diet including plenty of boiled or steamed vegetables. Drink P L E N T Y O F W A T E R , fruit juices & fat free milk. Snack on lots of RAW fruit & veggies. Get up one hour early every morning & take a BRISK 30 minute walk - then - do the same thing again in the evening after dinner. Make sure you eat a good, balanced breakfast daily. You get your energy for the day from your breakfast meal. Get 8 hours sleep each night. Flip your mattress over so it will level out to give you a good night's rest. Slack off too much coffee & tea.)

      HPV is the virus that causes warts. And HPV virus has many strains. In your case you have HPV virus strain number 2. People can be infected with HPV and never show any symptoms. Others will develop warts. These warts can stay the same size, grow, or go away on their own. It depends on the infected person's immune system. A healthy immune system means your body may be able to suppress the virus and not show symptoms.

      also you should use some herbal treatment!

      in that case Wartrol is really good (probably the best) product that gets rid of warts comparatively fast and makes you feel more confident knowing that they wont reappear again! it says that it is designed for Genital Warts but
      it does not matter because warts are warts and wartrol works by stimulating your immune system to fight the HPV virus that causes the warts. of course it is better if you use full course (5 months - if I remember correctly).

      It worked and still works for me!

      I do not know if any pharmacies carry Wartrol but I do know that you should purchase it directly from the manufacturer and read more about the product here http://www.wartrol.com/?aid=749165

      The advantage of Wartrol over other natural treatments for warts is that, since it is taken orally, it can also act on invisible warts that can't be treated by other creams and natural remedies.

      good luck!

  28. QUESTION:
    What home remedies are there for a locked jaw?
    For a few years, I've had a misaligned jaw and the left side cracked when I opened my mouth really wide. But for the past 2 weeks, the right side of my jaw has just gotten locked and I can't open my mouth completely without pain.

    I have read a lot about TMJ and people often advise seeing a dentist or chiropractor, but I was wondering whether anybody has any home remedies I can try first. I have tried massaging and putting a heating towel. Although the heating towel allowed me to open my mouth wider, it still didn't cure the problem.

    Also, I tend to sleep with my mouth open and I consistently sleep sideways, which I believe is what caused my misaligned jaw after years and years.

    Any advice on what I can do as a last resort before seeking professional help??

    Thanks!!

    • ANSWER:
      See if you can find someone who knows the "KI Method". It is kind of like a massage, but focuses on the points of your body that need healing.

    • ANSWER:
      Activ-on (made by the Head-on people) helps a lot of people.

  31. QUESTION:
    Any home remedies for nails that break easily?
    I used to have really healthy nails that would always grow and stay long, but after I got gel nails couple of times, I can't grow my natural ones any more...I eat a lot of vegetables and fruits, and drink at least 6-8 glasses of water a day. Do you know any home remedies for nails that chip, peel and crack?

    • ANSWER:
      if theyre peeling their most likely dried out, for this you could try rubbing vasiline on them, if u dont have vasiline any other moisterizer will work just as good. make sure u rub it over the entire nail including the skin where the nail grows from :) .
      its not a home remedy but i know you can by nail hardening/strengthening nail polishes (they are normally clear), but to protect them you can paint them with any coloured nail polish just to give them extra strength and prevent them from drying out (mosterizing cream will still get to the nails even if you are wearing nail polish).
      its also important that ur nails are at an adequet length so to increase there strength. ive found that washing the dishes, and having baths or long showers wear my nails are prolonged to water makes them quite thin and weak so if doing the dishes i would wear gloves.

      the more calcium u eat/drink the tougher ur nails will be.

      another thing u can do is soak ur nails for 15mins in a beaten egg(u dnt need to use the whole thing) this wil make them more healthy( stronger, shinier, less chance of chiping and cracking)

      nails and hair are made of the same things, so if u think about the care u give ur hair eg. cleaning, moisterizing, ur nails need the same to be heathy :)

      :) sorry its long but i hope its helpful

  34. QUESTION:
    What home remedies can I use on my cat that keeps chewing off her fur?
    She is constantly over-grooming, to the point of patches of fur starting to disappear. She's done this before, and she usually stops after a while, but this last time it's gotten a lot worse, and she even caused a scab (presumably). Without resorting to another trip to the vet, what home remedies could I use to dissuade her from this bad habit?

    • ANSWER:
      There are a couple of reasons your cat could be over-grooming:

      1. Dermatitis - if she has a primary skin problem, like a staph infection or ringworm, she will itch and overgroom. This cannot be treated effectively with home remedies, but thankfully is not as common as other causes.

      2. Food allergies - fairly common in domestic animals. Grains and chicken are the most common allergens. Cats do not need grains in their diet, so try introducing a diet based on a protein that she's never been exposed to (duck, venison, rabbit, kangaroo, etc). Animals develop food allergies after prolonged exposure, so it's very possible for her to be allergic to her food if she's never had a problem with it before. Some cats have sensitive GI tracts, so you may want to switch her over gradually. It can take 1-2 months to see improvement with food allergies.

      3. Flea allergies - VERY common in cats. If she is not on effective flea control, you should consider that a highly probable source of itching. The best flea medications are prescription through your vet. Be careful if you decide to use non-prescription products on your cat. Anything with permethrins, pyrethrins, or chrysanthemum extract is TOXIC to cats and will cause neurological damage. Check labels carefully and never use dog products on cats. Flea allergic animals often groom away fleas so effectively that you never see the fleas. If she is not on flea control, try it before deciding that she doesn't have any on her.

      3. Environmental allergies - unfortunately cats can also have environmental allergies just like people. These are harder to handle as there isn't a good way to prevent exposure to most of the allergens: pollens, mold, etc. There are medications to reduce sensitivity, but most vets will only prescribe them after ruling out all of the other causes, as they have side effects like damping the immune response.

      4. Stress - it is not uncommon for cats to have "psychogenic alopecia", which is basically neurotically grooming themselves to the point of having bald spots. Some cats do this in response to a specific stressor, which you may be able to discover and eliminate. If there is tension between her and another cat in the household, that could also cause this problem. Other cats develop this out of boredom. If you are seeking a way to eliminate boredom, there are a lots of neat tips and tricks to be found through Google as "Enrichment" or "Homemade toys" for your cat. Playing with her or setting up problem solving games may give her something to do and reduce her stress.

      I would like to encourage you to try to suss out the root of her issue before just trying to make her fur taste bad, as she may have a real problem that is causing her to act this way.

      To the individual who for some reason believes that veterinarians are in a conspiracy with food companies I can only say this:
      I can tell you that as a vet student my course on nutrition was taught by a veterinary nutritionist who was board certified in veterinary internal medicine, not a pet food rep. Our gastroenterology course was also taught by an internist. No one has ever taught a medical or nutritional course to us who was not a doctor, either in veterinary medicine or a PhD in a related field. They were all employed by the university, not pet food companies.
      I can also tell you that while working in the veterinary hospital we never marketed the food we had available or pushed food simply because of a "deal" with pet food companies. We frequently recommended foods that we did not carry and recommended that clients their own judgment and preference in selecting foods.
      I know that, as in all things, there are clinics who are swayed into over-recommending specific brands, but it is not a universal practice. There is also currently a great deal of effort in the veterinary field to standardize and police the relationship between clinics and food/pharmaceutical companies, so that the best health care is offered without bias.

  36. QUESTION:
    Any home remedies for breaking up chest congestion when you have a cold?
    I did the zycam-medicine thing, I drink plenty of fluids like soups and teas all day, but I have this dry cough and nothing is breaking up my congestion. Any home remedies?
    I don't have vics vapor rub in the house, so anything that doesn't require me going to the drugstore would help.
    Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      Try a hot bath. Hot as you can stand it--careful not to scald yourself. Soak in it for a while as the water cools down. It will definitely relax you and should help the congestion.

      Hot herbal tea or a fragrant tea such as Earl Grey or Oolong will also help. With a cold, time is your ally and friend. They usually run their course and break up on your own. The hot bath is also good if you are running a fever.

      I am very much a believer in the power of a hot bath. I take one every evening, regardless of how I am feeling. I'm 67 years young and have no issues with arthritis or joint pains.and I consider the hot bath to be the real Fountain of Youth.

      Reclining or lying down should also help reduce the drainage that is causing the cough. I've got one of those, too, darn it, and I'm taking Mentholyptus cough drops and drinking hot teas to relieve it.

  37. QUESTION:
    what home remedies can do to get rid of a urinary infection?
    i suffer from urinary infections and its very uncomfortable...but its a drag to go to the doctor every time i have one and i was wondering what home remedies i can do to get rid of the infection without having to go visit the doctor every time. thanks in advance!

    • ANSWER:
      No home remedy's for a UTI. You need an antibotic. Theres no way around it and if you don't get on one, you will get worse.

      I was plagued with UTI's for years. I ended up with an acute case of Pyelonephritis - infection of the kidney. I ended up seeing a Urologist who kept me on an antibiotic for about 3 months until I had a negative urine culture. It worked. I have not had a UTI in over 15 years.

      Also, this is a little personal but, good hygiene is very important. I use a non-perfumed very simple soap to clean my peri area. I use Ivory bar soap. No pefumes, no deoderants. It's a gentle soap. Dove uncented is another safe one. The liquid soaps tend to have preservatives in them and sometimes a glucose type base which isn't good. I suggest bar soaps.

      I suggest seeing a Urologist. That way you can get this taken care of once and for al.

  38. QUESTION:
    What home remedies can you use for fungus on yellow toenails?
    I have notice that my toenails have recently started changing into yellowish color is there like any home remedies to fix it? And like this white buildup is making my toenails thick.

    • ANSWER:
      Okay just search google for random ideas. But let me tell you this. Getting rid of toenail fungus takes constant applications for 6 months to a year. Seriously. That's how long it takes to get rid of it. So before it gets worse, and before you try stuff that probably don't work, just go and buy an OTC fungal cream for toenails since you KNOW that will work. Don't waste your time.
      If you want to experiment the only 'home remedy' is tea tree oil, but this is very irritating to a lot of people and you have to be careful about the 'dosage' you apply. Plus keep your nails clean and dry obviously.

      The OTC stuff can only be applied to 2 or POSSIBLY 3, but I think 2 is the maximum you can treat at a time. Over the entire year/half year. So run out now and get some!! Before you get it in your other toes!
      If it gets into all 5 you will be at it for a possible 3 years!!

  39. QUESTION:
    Any home remedies to get rid of a small scratch on my chin?
    I have a little scratch on my chin but it's very noticable. Do you knwo any home remedies to heal scratches? Something that will go away quick.
    Or is there anyhting that i can hide the scratch?

    • ANSWER:
      Salt water to close it up, and disinfect it, then aloe gel applied right on. The aloe ( from the plant itself or as a gel not lotion) Help heal it quickly and leaves little trace of scars. It can also shrink big scars or old scars down as well.

      I had 2 c sections, and both scars have become on thin line and other childhood scars are barely seen.

      Or if you cant get aloe, A vitamin E capsule popped open and rubbed on spot can have the same results.

  40. QUESTION:
    What home remedies that help get rid of or prevent acne?
    I've tried lots of products to help cure me acne and none seem to work not even Proactiv, so that was a waste of my time buying it from the mall and my money -.-"
    Now I am willing to try home remedies. I prefer fruits over vegetables, but if it helps, tell me which one:) Thanks.

    • ANSWER:
      OMG: Do not try that "urine therapy." Anyone who does, is either desperate or nuts.

      Try washing your face with some good ole soap & water. I use Dove bath soap & my face is not only soft, but it's acne free. Using circular motions, wash your face for two minutes. That is enough time to open your pores & clean them out. Make sure you use a "wash cloth" & not just your hands. The wash cloth will remove dirt & oils that clog the pores. If the pores aren't cleaned out well, they close with the dirt & oil trapped inside. That's why you end up with acne.

      After you rinse your face well with warm water, splash some cold water on your face to close the pores. Drinking a lot of water daily, will flush out the impurities in your body, & before long, you'll notice a difference in your face, your skin, your nails, & your hair. Your body needs water!!!

      Keep your hair clean as oily bangs resting on the forehead, can cause acne.

      When I was in high school, I washed my faced twice daily & three times daily on weekends, with Noxzema. I used it just like I did a bar of soap. When I was through patting my face dry with a towel, I applied a little of the Noxzema to my acne. If you decide to try it, & you wear a creamy/liquid makeup base, make sure you wash your face thoroughly at the end of the day. NEVER...go to bed with makeup on or you will have more acne than you would care to have.

      edit: If you decide to try the Noxzema, it's cheaper to buy it at the Dollar General or Family Dollar. :)

  41. QUESTION:
    What home remedies could I try to get rid of heartburn during pregnancy?
    I'm 32 weeks pregnant and I just ran out of my prescription of my heartburn pills, My doctor is on holidays until next week.. I've been suffering since last night. Does anyone know of any home remedies that could help me out, tums and acid chewables is all that i've been taking and not doing the trick and just leaving a gross taste in my mouth.

    • ANSWER:
      Okay but this is a last resort, if nothing else works home remedy. I know because I did it before, when I ran out of my heart burn prescription. You take a teaspoon of baking soda and mix it in a cup of warm water and chug it. The heart burn will relieve itself shortly after but it does it in the most unconventional way. Lucky for me, my husband was in Iraq when I tried it, so he didn't have to smell the burps that came out of my mouth. They were the most horrible, egg smelling, nasty burps ever, I mean have to brush your teeth afterward horrible. It did get rid of the heartburn, but I have never done it again and prob will not ever do it again. :-) Best of luck.

  44. QUESTION:
    What home remedies gets rid of redness from pimples?
    I have no pimples in the spots but from the pimples its red, what home remedies could I use to get rid of the redness?

    • ANSWER:
      Try crushing up an aspirin. Don't use the one that has a "candy coating" though, because it wont work. The Ibuprofen helps to heal and relieve the redness and soreness of most pimples.

      Just use one or two tablets, and crush in a dish until they are a fine powder. Add a little splash of water so it becomes more of a paste, and spread on your pimple(s). Leave it for a while (I usually do it before I go to bed...but a good hour should do it).

      It might not work right away and you may have to do it a couple of times, because it depends on the sensitivity of your skin and the severity of the acne.

      If it's just surface redness that you have, this might work... But that's usually a sign that there is acne under the skin and it has not surfaced yet. For this you need an astringent (something with a little alcohol in it that will clean deep in your pores), which you would have purchase at your local pharmacy.

      Hope this helps!

    Any home remedies for stains under the water line of the toilet bowl?
    When cleaning my toilet bowl I noticed that there are areas under the water line that are stained and no matter how I scrub with the brush they won't come off. I used toilet duck bleach and a spray bathroom cleaner, left both for an hour and scrubbed and flushed but the stains under the water line remain. I wad wondering if there are any home remedies using products I might already have in my kitchen cupboards that would remove the stains?

Constipation Remedies Using Vegetables Here are more constipation remedies using vegetables. Use vegetables every day for good health. When you have constipation then you want to eat more vegetables and fruits than normal. After you clear your constipation, them back off from eating excess vegetables and just eat what you need to prevent constipation.
Carrots, Cabbage and Raisins

Because carrots contain fiber, they help to form a good stool and promote peristaltic action. By combining carrots with cabbage and raisins, you can create an even more powerful food that will help in relieving constipation. Combine the following vegetables to form an evening salad:

" Chopped carrots
" Shredded cabbage (raw or slightly steamed)
" Romaine lettuce
" Cauliflower
" Cucumbers
" A handful raisins
" Sprinkle a tablespoon of grounded flax seeds
" Mix in 1 - 2 tablespoons of olive oil or more
" Mix in 1 tablespoon of flax seed oil
" Mix in 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar or more
" One tablespoon of lecithin granules

Eat this salad once or twice a day for three days. After that you should continue to eat a vegetable salad for lunch or dinner. Make sure to drink plenty of water when eating more fiber.
Carrot and Spinach Juice

Combine 10 oz of carrot and 6 oz of spinach juice. Drink two pints daily. Both these vegetables have nutrients to help relieve your constipation.

Cucumber

Cucumbers are good for preventing constipation. But they can be used in the carrot-spinach juice or the apple-spinach juice. Cucumbers make these juices more powerful. Use only about - of a cucumber when adding it to these juices. You can experiment with how much cucumber you want to add.

Cucumbers are a natural diuretic and help to dissolve kidney stones. Because they are high in potassium, they help to promote the flexibility of colon cells. This helps to keep your colon working, as it should.

Cabbage and Asparagus

Cabbage is high in fiber and contains a good amount of potassium, foliate, beta-carotene and many other nutrients - bioflavonoids, indoles, genistein, monoterpenes. It is these various chemicals that give it its potent ability to reduce or prevent colon cancer and heal various ulcers along the gastrointestinal tract.

Cabbage is anti-bacterial and helps to heal tissues in the stomach, intestines, and colon.

Drinking cabbage juice produces intestinal gas. This gas occurs when cabbage juices combine with putrefied layers in the intestines and colon.

Use little or no salt on any preparation of cabbage. Salt destroys the nutritional value of cabbage.

There are many forms of cabbage you can use for your juices - green, red, savoy, bok choy
Asparagus
Asparagus are also high in fiber. They also provide foliate and vitamins A and C. Refrigerate asparagus quickly if you are not going to use them and keep them for 3 days or less. Asparagus that have not been refrigerated lose their nutritional value quickly.

People with gout should not eat asparagus since they contain purines that can start a gout attack.

Steam your cabbage and asparagus with a slight amount of water for 3-4 minutes or less. Eat just before going to bed and take some digestive enzymes to help digest this food.

  1. QUESTION:
    What Can i use to cure my sore eyes, Can be Home remedies Or Medical?
    i had sore eyes..........my mother gave me terramycin.but lately i searched the net and found out that terramycin is for animals?? is that true??? what should i do to heal this sore eyes of mine........if terramycin is for animals.then i will discontinue using it...........wht home remedies should i use??? or medical drugs??? thx......

    • ANSWER:
      As a general safety rule: do not ever use medication that is not prescribed for you, or not with an advice of a doctor or a pharmacist. For Over The Counter medications, you should always read the label for indication and dosage. If you still have question regarding the medication, stop at the pharmacist counter and ask.
      Do not use the medication if it is not in the original bottle. If you have to take it out of the bottle to fill in the 'daily' compartment pill box, always leave some pills left so you can go back and compare what bottle that pill belongs....
      Now back to your question: NEVER put anything in your eyes unless it is for you or you know what it is and what it's for. Your eye sight is too precious to lose for mistake like that.
      You should go see a doctor so he can exam your eyes. If it is due to bacterial or virus infection, he will treat it accordingly. Stop using the medication your mom give immediately. Tell the receptionist at doctor's office that you need to come in right away due to eye sore. They should take you in.
      At the mean time, you can use saline solution for eyes at the local pharmacy to rinse your eyes, it will cleanse and make your eyes feel more comfortable. Use a different damp paper towel to wipe each eye. Avoid tissue paper because it will shed small particles which will irritate your eyes more.
      And rest, close your eyes and sleep, it will help heal the eyes better. Stay away from the computer. Good luck.

  11. QUESTION:
    i am 19, and i have open pores on my nose from the age of 14. plz suggest home remedies or medical treatment.?

    • ANSWER:
      I have had this same problem with open pores on my nose as well. I have rather thick skin and it can be oily. I was prone to getting pimples when I was younger. I had also gotten badly sun burned a number of times. And had my nose broken at least once. I unconsciously touched my face and nose allot. I took extremely hot showers and steam bathes and I let the hot water hit me in the face. I drank alcoholic beverages and tended to not get enough sleep. To say the least my nose and skin had allot of irritation and trauma. When I was around twenty the pores on my nose began to fill with white stuff called sebum. I would squeeze the stuff out but within a few days I found the pores were full again. It was a never ending cycle and the pores in my nose began to enlarge and stay open. I went to a number of doctors and dermatologists and no one did anything that ever helped me. By trial and error on my own I came up with a regime which helped.

      From what I read – the nose and skin of the nose is sensitive – just a little trauma or irritation either inside or outside the nose can cause the pores to overreact. – The pores react by producing sebum. This is a normal reaction and used as a protection. The catch 22 here is that squeezing the pores produces more irritation and therefore more sebum and you have never ending cycle. The more you squeeze the more the pores fill up.

      In about three weeks I noticed an improvement in my skin and pores. The amount of sebum became minimal and th pores less noticable. My skin will never be perfect again but I can now live with it comfortably. I want to make it very clear that I'm not a doctor. I 'm only telling you what I did and I'm not recommending that you do anything that I listed here.

      Things I stopped:

      I don’t take very hot showers. I only use lukewarm to cool water.
      I do not use steam rooms or saunas.
      I do not put hot or even warm water on my face or nose ever.
      I do not ever let myself get sunburned or tanned.
      I do not go out in the sun without sun screen and if I don’t have sun screen - I wear a brim to keep the sun off my nose and face.
      I do not ever under any circumstance pick or touch my nose – either inside and out – even if there is something lurking inside. I only blow gently with a Kleenex.
      I do not pull or tweeze nose hairs I do not put anything in my nose ever!
      I do not use a wash clothe on my face or nose ever.
      I do not use soap or cleaner on my face except for pHioderm ( for normal to dry skin) and very cold water.
      I do not let the pulsating or pressurized water hit my face or nose.
      I do not apply any products that claim to dry oily skin, open pores, remove dead skin, exfoliate or tighten pores.
      I do not use anything containing alcohol or chemicals on my face.
      I do not wash my hair with hot water - only lukewarm or cool water.
      I do not put ice on face or nose.
      I do not ever squeeze blackheads or pores on my nose.
      I never touch my nose or face accepts to wash my face.
      I do not drink liquor of any kind – except once in a great while - I will one glass of wine.
      I do not drink coffee.
      I minimize sweets, sugar, chocolates, high fat food, artificial sweeteners and greasy food.
      I don’t smash nose and face into your pillow when in bed.
      I don’t trust mirrors – most bathroom mirrors have a single light above the center. The effect is that it creates a glare on your nose and exaggerates the size of your nose and pores. With shadows – People don’t see you under these circumstances.
      I don’t scrub my face.
      I don’t ever use a sun lamp or tanning salon.
      I don’t exercise to the point of exhaustion.
      I do not give up 6 to 8 hours sleep to any other activity.

      Things I do

      1. I shower with cool or lukewarm water and do not let the lukewarm water on my face.
      2. I only use pHisoderm ( for normal to dry skin) and very cold water when I wash my face.
      3. I only wash my face at the sink and not in the shower
      4. At the sink I apply the water to my face only with cold water cupped in my hands. I do not scrub my skin and face. I lightly rub the soap against the surface of the skin and only for a 10 or 15 seconds. I let it sit for a few seconds or so before rinsing it off.
      5. I rinse the soap off by splashing very lightly - very cold water cupped in my hands.
      6. I pat dry my face very lightly with a thick towel leaving some water behind to dry naturally.
      7. I wash my face at least four times a day this way using cold water and pHisoderm. Once in the morning after a shower. Once before bed and at least two more times during the day. I keep one a pHisoderm in my car and one at work and one at home.
      8. I apply one small drop of lipid-drops to my nose after washing my face but apply nothing before I go to bed.
      9. I use lipid-drops on my nose every 6 hours after washing my face. – I only use one very small drop. Lipid-drops are for .5 ounces. Three small drops a day -the bottle will last you 6 months or more – that’s less then .00 per week.
      10. I use a biore strip twice week on my nose – no more and no less then this. More then this can irritate the skin and defeat the purpose. Less then this does not keep the pores clean. If the biore strip misses anything I don’t squeeze at it – I leave it alone – the biore strips will probably get it next time or the time after that. Biore strips are the only tool I use for cleaning pores on my nose
      11. I gently wash face with pHisoderm after using the biore strip and I do not apply lipid drops again until the next day.
      12. I wash my face before going to bed but I do not apply lipid drops or anything else on my face before going to bed.
      13. When I go out in the sun I always where a SPF 40 sun block especially on my nose – if I don’t have sun block I wear a hat with brim. .
      14. I try to get 8 hours of sleep every night.
      15. I take one caffeine free aspirin every 12 hours.
      16. I try to eat some raw vegetables and fruit daily.
      17. I drinks lots of clean water – at least 5 to 7 glasses per day –I never let myself get dehydrated.
      18. I take one Centrium multi-vitamin a day.
      19. I take one extra vitamin D vitamin – 800 IU a day especially in the winter when there is little sun.

      I began to see improvement in about 4 weeks.

      Two other benefits that came out of this – I no longer have itchy skin even in the winter, and my hair is never frizzy – I attribute this to having stopped washing with hot water.

      I tried using only lipid drops without the rest of the regime and they did nothing for me. They only seem to help if I do the rest of the regime as well.

      I do not have Rosacea. If you have a skin condition called Rosacea – your nose and skin and pores can react in extreme ways to irritation and trauma if you don’t take care - especially if you drink alcohol – W.C. Fields had Rosacea and he drank – and this is probably why his cheeks and nose became so puffy latter in life. He used his affliction as an asset. There are now special medicines if you have this skin disorder.

      I hope this helps. Good Luck.

  12. QUESTION:
    Medical and home remedies for Gastritis! need help please!!?
    I had an attack of gastritis in September and went to the DR. and was put on Prilosec OTC for a month and was told to avoid alcohol and all the typical foods. (H. pylori negative blood work normal )It went away and now it is back. It started at the beginning of Thanksgiving week. I finished a course of antibiotics (unrelated conditions) and then I started having that feeling again. Pain, discomfort, bloating and on and on.. So i started the Prilosec again only it was a holiday week and I was with family so I ate a lot of bad food and ate out and drank.. Now I am paying the price. As of yesterday I have been home and have not drank ETOH and have been watching what I eat etc. Taking my Prilosec and Maalox later if needed. I need some suggestions. What worked for you? What can i do to just get rid of this fast? I was back to normal and now I feel like crap. Will I just always get this now if I do not watch out? Help!

    • ANSWER:
      I also have gastritis. What helped me immensely was to eat only alkaline forming foods. Fresh fruit, vegetables, especially corn, and whole grains. Don't drink much milk, it's acid in your system. Most foods seem to be acid and must be avoided when you have a flare up. Google the acid/alkaline diet and get a list of the foods to avoid. Don't drink plain water. I found that to be really hard on my stomach. I always add some lemon to my water and that makes the water more alkaline. If you're in pain then taking a spoonful or more of honey might help. Honey is alkaline in your body and will help to neutralize the acid. Good luck to you. I might mention also that I stayed on a very alkaline diet for a couple of months. I got better and really don't have much problems anymore. I no longer need to take the prescribed medication either.

    • ANSWER:
      Avoid eating junk food,fried food,spicy food,heavy to digest items like meat,alcohol and smoking.Eat non irritant items which are soft on stomach.Medicines,including all antibiotics and pain relivers, irritate the gastric mucosa.Start with prilosec again and drink refrigerated cold milk,half a cup 4-5 times a day,sip by sip as if you are drinking hot tea.Take maalox only if you feel there is too much of trapped wind in your stomach.After recovering fully and to avoid such episodes in future,take above dietry precautions.Take a 6 week course of rinetidine-150mg.tab. (otc generic and much cheaper than prilosec ),1 tab.twice a day at least half an hour before major meals for 1 month followed by 1 tab. before breakfast for 15 days.You will become fully fit.After that the day you want to have fried food or enjoy a drink,take 1 tab. at least at least half an hour or may be 1 or 2 hours before you want to eat or drink any thing which results into gastric problem.

  14. QUESTION:
    I would like to ask a question for a 'medical home remedy'.?
    Recently I began feeling a discomfort in the corner of my eye. I think I now have a sty in the outer corner of the right eye that both itches and burns. If someone can provide a home remedy to ease or correct this minor problem, I would be most appreciative.

    Thanks for any information or input you can provide.

    Dearie . . . Jean Black

    • ANSWER:
      Yes, you could try a hot compress. Hold a clean flannel that has been in fairly hot (obviously not too hot) water against the closed eye. Do this about 3-4 times a day. In the vast majority of cases the sty will burst and the puss with drain away. You only really need to see a Doctor if it fails to go away.

      The most common bacterium to cause this is staphylococcus. Just ensure you don't share towels with anyone else in the home.

    • ANSWER:
      Hi Lynn

      Here are some ideas on how to heal your conditon.

      Cause
      Hemorrhoids are often the result of poor diet, constipation or a sluggish bowel, straining during bowel movements, chronic low-level dehydration, lack of exercise, and/or a sedentary lifestyle. Correcting these factors can be very helpful in preventing and eliminating hemorrhoids.

      Caution: Bleeding during bowel movements needs to be checked to rule out other more serious conditions. If you experience blood in your stool, seek immediate medical attention.

      --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

      Natural Cures

      Aromatherapy: Cypress, juniper, frankincense, or niaouli.

      Ayurveda: Drink 1/2 cup of aloe vera juice three times daily until symptoms clear. The Ayurvedic herbal compound triphala is also very effective for relieving hemorrhoid pain and for promoting the overall health of the gastrointestinal tract.

      Diet: Eat an organic, whole foods diet that emphasizes high-fiber foods, plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables (especially dark green, leafy vegetables, such as kale), grains such as brown rice and millet, and lean, organic meats and poultry. Also drink plenty of healthy beverages, such as herbal teas, fresh squeezed juice, and pure, filtered water.

      Flower Essences: Rescue Remedy Cream® can be applied to external hemorrhoids to ease symptoms.

      Herbs: The aptly named herb pilewort is a staple treatment for hemorrhoids in Europe because of its effectiveness in reducing hemorrhoid symptoms. Collinsonia is another highly effective herbal remedy for hemorrhoids. As a topical application, mix 10 ml of collinsonia tincture with 80 ml of distilled witch hazel and apply this combination after every bowel motion and as needed. Other useful herbs include bilberry, buckthorn bark, butcher`s broom, comfrey root, gotu kola, parsley, passionflower, and stone root.

      Homeopathy: Aloe, Hamamelis, Nux vom., Berberis, Acidum fluor., and Thuja are helpful homeopathic remedies.

      Hydrotherapy: Hydrotherapy is the application of water, ice, steam and hot and cold temperatures to maintain and restore health. Treatments include full body immersion, steam baths, saunas, sitz baths, colonic irrigation and the application of hot and/or cold compresses. Hydrotherapy is effective for treating a wide range of conditions and can easily be used in the home as part of a self-care program. Many Naturopathic Physicians, Physical Therapists and Day Spas use Hydrotherapy as part of treatment. We suggest several at-home hydrotherapy treatments. Please seek the advice of your alternative health care practitioner before undergoing these procedures to make sure they are appropriate for you.
      *Purified water is essential for any hydrotherapy treatment. Remedies for Treating Chlorinated Bath Water offers clear instructions and recommendations.

      Juice Therapy: The following juice combinations can help keep the bowels regular and soften stools: carrot, spinach, celery, and parsley; carrot and watercress; or beet juice.

      Nutritional Supplementation: The following nutrients can help prevent and reverse hemorrhoids: vitamin C with bioflavonoids and rutin, vitamin A, beta carotene, vitamin B complex, folic acid, essential fatty acids, magnesium, potassium, and zinc. Linseed oil (one teaspoon upon arising and at night) can also be used to help soften stools.

      Topical Treatment: Apply a combination of zinc oxide, vitamin E, and aloe vera gel or olive oil to the affected area. Witch hazel applied topically can help shrink hemorrhoids, while calendula ointment can help relieve pain and itching.

      Best of health to you

      Cheers

    home remedies for scar removal or lightening them?
    ok i have a bunch of scars (i have my reasons) and i need to get rid of them. it can NOT cost money or ne like some medical doctor thingy that you buy with a prescription. if you could tell me some home remedies for scar removal or something to at least lighten them it would be very much appreciated.

    • ANSWER:
      What types of scars are they? If they are just minor scar tissue or discolorations of your skin then you might try using fresh lemon juice on them daily. Since it is acidic people with sensitive skin might not do well, but using some pure aloe vera gel as well should relieve dryness and help repair scars. Vitamin E oil is also good for reducing scars, but it works best when used on a fresh wound.

  23. QUESTION:
    Mid-back pain - home remedies, non-prescription help?
    I injured my back about a week and a half ago (I believe it was from being a bit hunched over while being torn in half by menstrual cramps). The painful area is in a band across my back, about as wide as my hand, the bottom of the painful area being right about at the bottom of my ribs. I don't have medical insurance, so all I can afford to do in terms of professional help is to go to the chiropractor (which I am). Does anyone have any advice on supplements, home treatments/remedies, exercises, and over-the-counter treatment? I'm in quite a bit of pain and have been missing a lot of work. Thanks in advance for any help.

    • ANSWER:
      Exercising will really help it. Walking is the best. Then ask your chiropracter to do some adjustments on you and also ask him what kind of streches to do. You might want to try a warm heat pad. If you warm it up and then put it on your back then the pain might go away a little bit. But I strongly suggest that you exercise, it works the best!

    I am 37 weeks and would very much like to go into labor soon. My doctor says it is safe to deliver now and wouldn't stop me from labor, but he cannot induce me until 38to39 weeks. Perhaps there is a law or medical code? What are some "home remedies" that are safe to try. I'll try anything... but please, tell me what only about what you KNOW will work. I don't want to be on a goose chase at the store for things that are just wives tales.

    Also, I am on limited activity- I'm on "rest" which means I don't have to be laying down in bed, but I am not supposed to be on my feet for any length of time other than absolutely necessary and also not supposed to have intercourse.
    I guess I just want to add that the doctor has completely assured me that if I went into labor that everything would be fine! As a matter of fact, he has said that he wishes that I would hurry and go on my own! He is very sympathetic because
    I have a seperated pubic bone (VERY PAINFUL) and severe swelling (I've been tested for toximia and pre-eclampsia- other than the bone pain, I'm completely healthy). I've been having contractions for weeks.

    When I go into labor, there is risk that I will completely rip my pubic bone open. If I go full term, the baby will obviously be much bigger (I've had two 9lb babies) and if I can go this week, maybe she'll only be 7 or so...

    The baby's health is not an issue. She is in great shape!

      you should eat some of my home made chilli it always helped my wife induce labour ,just give your e-mail and i will send it to you ,just don't share it with anyone because its a secret family recipe :)

  25. QUESTION:
    What kind of home remedies are there for hot spots or itching dogs?
    Our 3 yr. old beagle does nothing but scratch, to the point of making hot spots and becoming breathless. He's got to be miserable and the vets seem to differ on remedies. And for some reason my husband hates to give him anything medical.

    • ANSWER:
      One thing you may want to try is talking to your vet about a food trial. It won't exactly cure the hot spots, but if your dog is itchy, it may be a food allergy...

      My yellow girl is an allgery dog. She licks and chews her feet, has horrible ears and will chew the hair off her tail. She also used to get hot spots all the time. We switched her diet to a prescription food trial (Venison and Potato) and she really improved. She was on that for several years.

      This year has been an even worse allergy year so my vet suggested a new food trial... believe it or not - Kangaroo and Oats. We are starting her on that.

      Maybe the food will help? It is worth exploring.

      Good luck!

  29. QUESTION:
    What are some home remedies for psoriasis ?
    My friend has Psoriasis almost everywhere. She is highly self conscience about it and she can't really afford the medical treatment from dermatologist but I really wanted to help. Does anyone know anything that will help her breakouts?

    • ANSWER:
      The cause of psoriasis is overreaction of the immune system. Keeping it in a balanced state is the key point of battling this disease. I try to eat healthy food and avoid stress as much as I can. Sun tanning is very helpful too.
      After using number of prescription drugs I've turned to the natural treatments.
      I used serenaskin psoriasis remedies -ointment and spray on the skin, and extract – internally to prevent breakouts. After 2 weeks of treatment my skin has been cleared. It is the best treatment I’ve ever tried.

  30. QUESTION:
    What are some home remedies for getting off Vicodin? And how long is the withdrawal? How long are you sick?
    I have been on it for about 2 years now for a legitimate medical condition, but now I have found a cure for my condition and I am now hooked on the pain killers.

    My advice to people who start taking painkillers is to be careful. They are helpful if you have pain, but as soon as you are better....get rid of them!! They will ruin your life.

    • ANSWER:
      The only information I can give you is on how long you will be sick. You've been on them for two years. Assuming you haven't seriously misused your prescription I'd say expect to be experiencing flu like symptoms for 3-5 days. Again depends on your daily intake. Vicodin is an opiate so it's similar to kicking Heroin. I recommend you try to drink as much fruit juice as you can keep down while withdrawing.

  32. QUESTION:
    What are the best home remedies for gastroesophageal Reflux Disease?
    i have bad acid reflux. anyone with medical experience.

    • ANSWER:
      Your stomach juices are also very acidic (pH as low as 1-2). One primary reason for GERD is a malfunction of the pyloric sphincter leading from the esophagus to the stomach, causing stomach acid to leak back into your esophagus. Eating foods with either a neutral pH (water, etc.) or alkaline foods (nuts, dairy, etc.) will naturally raise the pH of the stomach acid.

      If you find that your GERD is worse at night, try sleeping in a chair or reclined position so that gravity helps keep the stomach acid from backtracking into your esophagus.

      Omeprazole will calm your stomach acid. You can buy it over the counter at just about any pharmacy.

      Also, if you can find aloe vera juice, that is a spectacular way to naturally soothe your GI tract. I have personally used the aloe vera juice for my GERD and it is now completely gone. You can get this at your local health food store.

    Cure for a chalazion ( Home remedy or medical)?
    Hiiiii all.. Dis is Saumya. I'm here to seek a solution to an eye problem I developed a few months ago. In november last year, I developed a chalazion ( its a cyst, looks like a sty but only worse) and though I've tried formenting, homeopathy and allopathy, nothing seems to be working on it. Besides, my eyelid itches a lot. The bump is not big enough to be operated but its red and frustrates me because its been there for too long ( 5 months + to be precise). Also, I've developed another chalazion on the same eye lid at a little distance from the previous one. I tried washing with acacia leaves water ( I read it on google), but its only made the condition worse. I will be extremely grateful if any of you could help me with this problem.
    Thank you. In anticipation of your replies.. Counting on you :)

    I had an attack of gastritis in September and went to the DR. and was put on Prilosec OTC for a month and was told to avoid alcohol and all the typical foods. It went away and now it is back. It started at the beginning of Thanksgiving week. I finished a course of antibiotics (unrelated conditions) and then I started having that feeling again. Pain, discomfort, bloating and on and on.. So i started the Prilosec again only it was a holiday week and I was with family so I ate a lot of bad food and ate out and drank.. Now I am paying the price. As of yesterday I have been home and have not drank ETOH and have been watching what I eat etc. Taking my Prilosec and Maalox later if needed. I need some suggestions. What worked for you? What can i do to just get rid of this fast? I was back to normal and now I feel like crap. Will I just always get this now if I do not watch out? Help!

      Byron Richards Health and Wellness Resources (online) sells several supplements for GI irriation. His products are fantastic. My family and I have used several w/ great success.

      Probiotics are a must if you've been on antibiotics. Choose one with multiple strains of bacteria.

    Thank you people. She's not spayed because we're going to breed her next near. She is a high breed Harlequin Great Dane.
    To "person" that is a great idea the bananas. She loves all fruit & veggies too.
    She's not in any pain, like some have said she's just confused is all. I really appreciate some of you refreshing the page to check my added comments.
    I gave her my last banana (I will buy her some more tomorrow) & a hot water bottle

    • ANSWER:
      spaying would be nice.

      ok, ok.

      there's not really anything else you can do, since it's natural for all female dogs...just like when women have periods, we can't really do anything about it, except taking midol and eating bananas, but i doubt a dog could do that.

      just make sure she doesn't run off somewhere and mate, and she might get a bit cranky, but you'll just have to deal.

      being in heat shouldn't really bother her though, is this her first one?
      maybe making it lie on a heat pad would help if her stomach is hurting.
      other then that, i don't know.

      but spay her asap.

  46. QUESTION:
    Fastest way to heal a cut?
    Help! I have a blister that opened up on my arm, and I am in a wedding next week. Does anyone know any home remedies, medical remedies or anything that can heal this ugly thing faster?? Thank you!!

    • ANSWER:
      To heal a blister:
      *If the blister has burst, don’t peel off the baggy skin pocket

      *Frequently wash the area with salt water and keep it free from dirt or irritants.

      *Cover with band-aid or other similar style dressing

      *Change the dressing daily.

      *Zinc cream may help to dry up your blister. However, don’t use zinc cream with a dressing. (it may be too late to use this, but it is worth a try)

      *If the blister breaks, press gently to remove the fluid and apply an antiseptic (such as iodine) to reduce the risks of infection.

      **Avoid ‘folk remedies’ like applying butter or vinegar.

      Worst case scenario that it isn't healed totally in time for the wedding---I am sure your glowing smile will detract from a small thing like a blister. Have a great time at the wedding.

  47. QUESTION:
    are there any home remedies that can make a girl more fertile?
    I have a friend who has been trying for 2 years now to get pregnant and the guy already has two kids from his first wife so its probably not him.....Are there special foods or moves she can do to help her get pregnant without seeking expensive medical treatment

    • ANSWER:
      my mom told me that eating cabbage is also very good.
      plus, after you have sex, don't get up right away. The woman should elevate her butt by putting a pillow underneath herself and put her legs in the air for at least 20-30 minutes so everything can slide into her.
      Try not to move around after sex too much because everything can come back out!
      Hope this is helpful!

  48. QUESTION:
    What's your best 'at home vet' tip for treating your dog?
    PLEASE NOTE I am in NO WAY advocating skipping vet care for a sick dog- I am just asking people to share their 'home remedies' for common doggies problems! If you are unsure of what your dog's condition is, SEE YOUR VET. If you have tried-and-true home solutions for doggie medical issues, share them here!

    Here are mine: Zymox solution for recurring ear infections (only treat bacterial or yeast infections, not infections due to mites) and Terramycin for conjunctivitis- both available OTC online.

    My dog battled ear infections FOREVER, we were at the vet's every 2 months or so, and nothing worked, until the Zymox. Conjunctivitis flares up once in a while in another dog, we have found we can clear it up with a tube of Terramycin instead of a + vet trip/antibiotics from them.

    • ANSWER:
      Haven't really needed too many at-home vet techniques (thankfully), but we're probably among that many that use:

      Benadryl for bee stings/insect bites

      Buffered aspirin for minor aches/pains

      Ibuprofin only when advised by Vet

  49. QUESTION:
    What are some treatments to reduce hair fall?
    Home remedies, medical treatments, parlor treatments....or anything for that matter...

    • ANSWER:

  50. QUESTION:
    What is a home remedy you have used for your dog that actually works?
    I know that taking random advice for home remedies over a Vet consultation for a medical crisis is not a good idea. But what are some things you have used and for what situation, when addressing a minor health issue? One of my favorites is giving my dogs Canned Pumpkin whenever they've had minor digestive upset. What is something that has worked for you? I've seen some really strange suggestions for folk remedies. The Canned Pumpkin is one I got from my Vet. I wouldn't want to dismiss anything that sounds strange, but I would want to check any suggestions by a Vet to verify that it could be useful and would not be dangerous.
    Thanks for the good answers, all. : )

    • ANSWER:
      benadryl as already mentioned, I give 3 (25 mg) tabs to an 80 pound dog. I have used this one stings, or hot spots, or the fourth of july.

      And of course pumpkin!

      I have used meat tenderizer for copraphagia. You add it to the food to help the proteins break down.

      Oregano for coccidiosis.

      Coconut oil for puppy acne. Also worked GREAT.

      And acv in daily water to help with fleas, worms, skin conditions.

      Brewers yeast to help with fleas.

      Diatomaceous Earth for fleas, ticks and worms.

      Tea tree oil for hot spots or itching.

      Cod liver oil helps with dry itchy skin and coats.

      Nice question!


Home Remedies For Clear Eyes

Maltese Eye Stain - Easy Home Remedy For Canine Tear Stains
If you have been struggling to find out how to get rid of your pet's eye stain or tear stain discharge I can totally relate to what you are going through.

We have several Maltese dogs in our family and a few of them unfortunately had severe Maltese eye stain problems.

At first we did not know what to do. The stains ran down their faces from the inside corner of their eyes down each side of their nose and it was unsightly and gross looking compared to the rest of their luxurious white coat.

We checked with our veterinarian and found that the Maltese breed has a predisposition towards eye stain problems as do several many other dog and cat breeds like: Maltipoos, Bichon Frise, Lhasa Apso, Papillion, Bulldogs, Cocker Spaniel, Shih Tzu and cat breeds like: Persians, Himalayans, Exotic Shorthairs, Devon Rex, and Scottish Folds.

One of the main causes of Maltese eye stain that is most commonly discussed is excess tearing.

If your Maltese has irritated eyes it can cause them to tear a lot. As the tears drain from the eyes the hair around the eyes gets wet and stained. Excess wetness around the eyes can be a breeding ground for bacteria and yeast.
Some of the causes of excess tearing are:

- a genetic predisposition to tearing as our vet explained

- allergies (these could be from the environment or from food allergies or even allergies to smoke or other irritants)

- ear infections

- teething or cutting teeth (common for Maltese puppies from 5 - 8 months old as their adult teeth are appearing)

If you can find the source of your Maltese tearing you can often keep the majority of the tear staining from even starting.

However due to the Maltese predisposition to tear staining genetically, in many cases it is very difficult to either find the source of the tear staining or to prevent it.

One way that all Maltese owners can help decrease the tear stain on their Maltese is to pay attention to the hair around the face and prevent hair from falling into the eyes. A simple top knot on your Maltese can go a long way in reducing the irritation to the eyes that causes more tear staining.

After checking with our vet we learned that our Maltese were okay health wise (thank goodness). The deep reddish-brown stains below their eyes came from the dogs normal tears that drained down the Maltese faces.

We learned that it was common for our Maltese to have tear staining because the tear ducts and bone structure are unlike other breeds and that in most the cases the cause of the color change of the hair and skin occurs when the normal bacteria on the hair and skin react with the clear tears. Even though the tear stains were not a health risk, we still wanted them to be gone so our Maltese could have a beautiful white face to go with their beautiful white coat.

We tried so many different home remedies to help the stains and leaky eyes to go away. We finally found a product that worked like a charm and all we had to was add a simple solution to our dog's food and after a short time the ugly stains were gone for good.

    • ANSWER:
      Homemade Remedy For Removing Eye Stains
      To apply in the eyes:

      - Use cold weak tea (one teaspoon per cup of warm water).

      - Hold your dog’s eye open with your finger and thumb.

      - Soak a pad of lint* in the wash (*Do not use cotton wool as it may leave numerous tiny fibers in the eyes making the condition worst than before)
      - Squeeze the soaked pad over the eyes, slowly.

      - Lubricate the eye with a drop of cod-liver oil using an eye dropper and give a gentle massage around the close eye lids.

      Note: If the hair under the eyes is moist, leave it just that otherwise you have to wet it a little for the next application.

      To apply on the coat under the eyes:

      - Use boric acid powder on the wet, stained hair after the above application. This will also prevent brown stain when it gets wet later on.
      Depending upon how badly stained the hair is, you can apply the powder one to three times a day.

      - After the staining is under control, you may wash the eyes every day with any weak tea or warm water.

      - For a clean white face, apply a little cornstarch just under the eyes and into the whiskers. You can use either a baby toothbrush or your own fingers to comb the cornstarch around those affected areas.

      Note: Avoid using boric acid powder on young puppies.
      If other puppies or the mother lick it off the hair, it can make them sick to the stomach. Best to isolate those you’d applied on for an hour or two.

    Home Remedy for Stable Stains?
    My friend has a pinto that has many stable stains, and is sick of trying to groom them out with a curry comb. Unfortunately, her horse has sensitive skin, and some of the current products out to remove stains irritate his skin.

    Does anyone know of a proven solution to stable stains that is quick, harmless, and able to be done without buying any fancy-shmancy product?
    All things considered, she doesn't want to use chalk. All chalk does is cover it up, and she would like to REMOVE the stains... Not hide them.

    • ANSWER:
      You're gonna think I'm nuts, but this works for me. I have a gray Andalusian.

      My horse is also sensitive to many cleaners. I had been using a laundry detergent for a couple of years on his blankets and pads, and he didn't react to that. I decided to try mixing in a spray bottle 1/2 inch of the laundry detergent and the rest water. I do rinse this with another spray bottle of clear water. I also rinse him off after the ride, so any residue is rinsed off then (summer). I hardly ever have to use shampoo these days.

      I use ALL free and clear (no dye or fragrance). I think you could also use Dreft (made for human baby laundry) The laundry detergent is made to get organic stains (i.e. poop) out of clothing,and that is usually what my horse's stains are! Since my horse hasn't reacted to this method for 4 years, I keep it up.

      I have found that gray hair doesn't hold stains like white on a paint/pinto, but I've used this on my friend's Dutch Pinto, and have had good luck on the day to day stains. He still needs to wear his fly scrim everyday, all the time to help protect him from stains.

    Does anyone know a good home remedy to make for dogs eye stain?
    Hello everyone, i was hoping to get a home remedy for eye stain removal. The products at the store are Too expensive. Thanks

    • ANSWER:
      **first off you need to have your dog seen by a vet. He could have blocked tear ducts** after this is ruled out it might be the diet. You can try a natural diet which should help.
      I've been told filtered water works, although it didn't for my dog. you should still wipe the eye area as it bacteria can grow in there.
      simply using a cotton swab and luke warm water daily can help remove some of the gunk.

      Walmart sells a tear stain remover for about that works well. it also helps get rid of the "gross" smell of the stains. I use it and it lasted me 3 months.

      hope this helps you!

    My Yorkie is very stubborn and likes to mark his territory. I have shampooed my carpet with the stuff made for pets and I still smell urine. Help!!!

    • ANSWER:
      White vinegar neutralizes the scent of the dog urine. When you spot clean after your doggie does his no no is the best time to use it. Though I suppose you can mix some in your shampooer, but I wouldn't....... Also, if you catch your baby in the act, mix the white vinegar and the urine on the cleanup rag/papertowel and let 'em get a good whiff......this tells them that it's YOUR territory and immediately set him outside....eventually he will get it.

    my little jackie bichon is getting terrible staining even though im cleaning the area every day. Has anyone got any home remedies, i know you can buy things but i'd rather natural stuff.

    • ANSWER:
      The thing about tear stains is that it isn't random, so... first you want to rule out any medical concerns, like a tear in the eyelid, or a scratch on the white of the eyes (ouch), or even allergies to something new that's been introduced to the house. If it's none of that, then try baby wipes! :) I know you're looking for home remedies, but I thought I would suggest it anyway. They're very soft and they won't hurt the dog, and they worked wonders on my Westie. Good luck!

      -about 5tps of honey
      -a plate
      -a glove(optional)
      -a rag/towel

      Procedure:
      You will need to cut the lime in half and mix it with the honey in plate
      Mix it really good!
      With glove on(to reduce mess) apply the thick paste on area and keep it on for about 15 minutes. With the rag/towel...."scrape" off the paste....make sure you rub it off and not just water it!
      After removing it......get in the shower and shower or whatever .
      Showering afterwards will reduce mess and will complete your cleanse.

      Tips:
      -don't scratch the area w/ the paste(it will not work as well)
      -keep your arms down even if they stick so it smears

      Keep me posted on how it goes.....feel free to email me!

  24. QUESTION:
    I am looking for a home remedy to whiten stained fingernails?
    During this past week, I have been doing alot of house cleaning, and yard work, now my nails are stained. They look horrible, I don't want to paint over them in case that would seal the stain in or cut them off. So far I have tried plain soap and water with a nail brush, lemon juice and water soak..... If any one has any ideas or knows something that will work, please let me know.

    • ANSWER:
      My first recommendation is to wear gloves!! You can try a nail whitener that Sally Beauty Supply carries. Denture tablets also work. Second step is to use a 3 or 4 way nail buffer and "gently" buff away the yellow or stained surface. Be careful when doing this because you can also thin your nails. Also make sure to use a non-yellowing base-coat prior to nail polish. Finish off with a good top coat such as Seche Vite. Try to stay away from nail products that contain Tolulene and Formaldehyde which will also stain and dehydrate your nails and cause chipping and peeling. Pick up cuticle oil and put a dab on your nails each night before bed. This helps keep your nails moisturized and will prevent breakage.

  28. QUESTION:
    I need a home remedy that will remove sweat stains from the arm pits of my new white t-shirt...?
    such as so many parts bleach to dish soap and warm water.... anything you know will work for a fact

    • ANSWER:
      Yellow underarm shirt stains are likely caused by a combination of deodorant and perspiration. Many deodorants and antiperspirants contain aluminum salts. When these salts are combined with laundry detergent, especially in cooler water settings, they are not easily dissolved, and they remain on the fabric.

      To remove the stains, try soaking the shirts in warm water with an enzyme pre-soak product or rubbing the soiled area with white vinegar. Wash in the hottest water safe for the fabric. If the stain remains, dampen and sprinkle stain with meat tenderizer. Let stand for about an hour, and launder again.

      To avoid new stains from forming, always wash the shirts in the hottest water safe for the fabric. Also, allow antiperspirant to dry completely before dressing...

I moved my desk back a bit and saw a huge yellow stain on my carpet. I imagine it's been there for a year. I know it's really gross, but I need to know how to get it out.

    It is berber carpeting and light in color so the stains are noticable and there is a stinch. Any ideas on how to eliminate them and save the carpet? I thought of renting a steam cleaner if necessary, but would like to try less expensive alternatives. Thankyou!!

    • ANSWER:
      A paste of vinegar and borax works, too. Work it into the fiber of the carpet with a soft brush, pour a little vinegar over it until it soaks into the padding to get the deep down stuff, put a terry towel down and hop on it to draw it out of the padding, repeat with the paste, let it dry and vacuum up the residue.

  44. QUESTION:
    What are some good home remedies for getting rid of mild coffee stains on my teeth?
    I'm 18 and I drink about 3 cups of coffee every other morning. My teeth have always been naturally white and they still are, but not as white and I think it's because of my coffee obsession. Any tips? (and i love coffee too much to stop drinking it!) Thanks so much! :)

    • ANSWER:
      Two things may help you. One is baking soda and peroxide toothpastes. I use Rembrandt plus. The other would be to try swapping out your acidic coffee for something like Kava - which is real coffee, only de-acidified. The acid etches your teeth and allows the stain to invade the enamel a little more deeply.
      Plus White five minute bleach once a week can also take the stains off.

    Any home remedies to remove my Bichon Frise puppies tear stains?
    I got my little Dexter last Thursday and he has terrible brownish marks under his eyes, iv been wiping them twice a day with a wet flannel and have bathed him with a white was shampoo for puppies but was a bit scared to rub it under his eyes incase it hurt him, anybody got any home remedies to get rid of them effectivley but wont cost me the earth??
    Thanks for any response

    • ANSWER:
      Tear stains are a bit difficult to remove, and unless you are able to remedy the cause, they'll just come back. The actual staining is caused by bacteria and red yeast growth that thrive in the warm moist environment, giving the hair that reddish-brown stain and musty smell. Some dogs have an inner set of a few lashes in the corner of their eyes that provide a constant irritant, causing excess tearing. Sometimes, it's the tear ducts themselves that are infected and causing the problem. A veterinarian can remedy both of these causes, so it's worth having your dog examined to determine the actual cause of the staining. As for removing the stain, first, I recommend regular face washing. You can wash your dog's face several times a week without giving her a full bath, then blow the area dry on a cool to warm dryer setting. Just be very careful around her eyes. There are grooming shampoos available at many pet supply stores formulated to help reduce the stain. A company called 8 in 1 makes tear removal pads called Tear Clear that will also help clean the stains away, and are more convenient than full face washing.

  48. QUESTION:
    any home remedies for ink stains?
    my favorite shirt got a big stain with ink!! how can take off the stain with at home stuff ASAP . . . HELP plz

    • ANSWER:
      Rubbing alcohol is great for ballpoint ink stains. Lesson I learned the hard way is to place a cloth pad under the stain and then blot the alcohol on. That way the stain won't spread.

      If you are talking about marker inks, try on-line stain removal guides (laundry detergent websites) using the same method I described above (Blot over a pad so the ink won't spread). You will probably need a specialty chemical to remove that type of ink.

    Dry Cleaning question - Does lemon juice remove stains?
    I can't take some of my work trousers to the dry cleaners as i am too embarrassed.

    Are there any home remedies for removing stains, like i heard of lemon juice. Are there any others? Vinegar? I had a little adventure at work with a co-worker and somehow I got my own spunk all down my trousers.

    Can you help?
    Thanks

    • ANSWER:
      Yes Lemon juice does remove some stains but you might prefer White Vinegar as it removes stains and will remove odors and residues left by detergents and dry cleaning chemicals, White Vinegar is an all purpose cleaner/degreaser, it also freshens and softens like a fabric softner so you don't have to use those expensive fabric softners as vinegar is less expensive, it also is touted as being the best disinfectant in the world and is gentle when used with water, here is the method for removing stains

      In the Laundry and for Removing Stains

      Soften fabrics, kill bacteria, eliminate static, and more

      There are so many benefits to be reaped by adding 1 cup white vinegar to your washer's rinse cycle that it's surprising that you don't find it prominently mentioned inside the owner's manual of every washing machine sold. Here are the main ones:
      A single cup of vinegar will kill off any bacteria that may be present in your wash load, especially if it includes cloth diapers and the like.

      A cup of vinegar will keep your clothes coming out of the wash soft and smelling fresh -- so you can kiss your fabric-softening liquids and sheets good-bye (unless, of course, you happen to like your clothes smelling of heavy perfumes).

      A cup of vinegar will brighten small loads of white clothes.

      Added to the last rinse, a cup of vinegar will keep your clothes lint- and static-free.

      Adding a cupful of vinegar to the last rinse will set the color of your newly dyed fabrics.

      Pat away water-soluble stains

      You can lift out many water-soluble stains -- including beer, orange and other fruit juices, black coffee or tea, and vomit --from your cotton-blend clothing by patting the spot with a cloth or towel moistened with undiluted white vinegar just before placing it in the wash. For large stains, you may want to soak the garment overnight in a solution of 3 parts vinegar to 1 part cold water before washing.

      Unset old stains

      Older, set-in stains will often come out in the wash after being pretreated with a solution of 3 tablespoons white vinegar and 2 tablespoons liquid detergent in 1 quart (1 liter) warm water. Rub the solution into the stain, then blot it dry before washing.

      Sponge out serious stains

      Cola, hair dye, ketchup, and wine stains on washable cotton blends should be treated as soon as possible (that is, within 24 hours). Sponge the area with undiluted vinegar and launder immediately afterward. For severe stains, add 1-2 cups vinegar to the wash cycle as well.

      Good Luck !

Natural Lung Cancer Treatment
Lung cancer, the growth of malignant cells in the lungs, and is the leading cause of death from cancer in the United States for both men and women. The types of primary lung cancer (cancer that originates in the lungs) may be grouped into two categories: small-cell carcinoma and non-small-cell carcinoma. Non-small-cell carcinoma comprises several types of lung cancers and is responsible for up to 80 percent of cases. The outlook is poor for all types of lung cancer unless the cancer is detected very early and can be surgically removed. Small-cell carcinoma is the most difficult to treat as it is often diagnosed after it has spread to many organs. Despite being very responsive to chemotherapy and radiotherapy, individuals with small cell carcinoma commonly relapse within a year.

Primary lung cancer can spread to essentially any organ. Where it may produce more disabling symptoms. Most cases occur between ages 45 and 75, after years of exposure to cigarette smoke or other pollutants. In many instances, the disease is preventable: over 90 percent of cases are caused by smoking. Nonsmokers have only a small risk, and those who quit smoking even after smoking for years greatly reduce their risk. The lungs are also a frequent site of secondary cancer, which has spread from elsewhere in the body. Such tumors are almost always incurable.

Prevention

Abstain from smoking; try to limit your exposure to second hand smoke and air pollution. Homes may be tested for radon using kit available in most hardware stores.

One natural lung cancer treatment is proper diet and nutrition

Genistein, antioxidant found in soybeans, may have a powerful effect on stopping the growth of lung cancer cells. Alpha carotene, beta carotene, and other carotenoids are believed by many researchers to aid in reducing and stopping the risk of lung cancer, although there is some evidence that beta carotene may be linked to a higher rate of lung cancer and mortality in smokers, former smokers, and those subjected to exposure to asbestos in their working environments.

A diet high in fruits and vegetables (including tomatoes) is associated with a greatly reduced risk of lung cancer. Shiitake mushrooms contain lentinan, which may also offer protection and cure.

Vitamins E and C and beta-carotene all work synergistically, and when taken together, the potential adverse side effects are counteracted. Selenium, lycopene, lutein, and glutathione have been associated with a reduced risk of lung cancer. Vitamins C and E, beta-carotene, selenium, and the B vitamins have also been associated with a decreased risk of lung cancer.

Supplemental oxygen is highly recommended for the treatment of lung cancer. We have to explore and examine this potent and effective natural therapy combining this one with proper nutrition and diet makes it very powerful. This one should not be neglected and should be a part of your arsenal against lung cancer, the recommended natural lung cancer treatment as provided by the "one minute cure for all diseases". We all know that this treatment has gain respect to a lot of people. Researched revealed that if you deprive a cell 35% of its required levels of oxygen for 2days, the cell will become malignant and cancerous and will be prone to different kinds of diseases such as lung cancer. Most people don't realize is that lack of oxygen is not only the cause of lung cancer but is also the cause of all most diseases. When the body is supplied with abundant amounts of oxygen, no microbes, viruses, harmful bacteria, toxins, pathogens and disease microorganisms can survive because they cannot survive in a highly oxygenated environment.

    Natural, Sugar/Fat-free, practical remedies for soothing a sore throat & cough?

  5. QUESTION:
    What free natural remedy can be used for erectile dysfunction?
    Enlarged prostate, Erectile dysfunction

    • ANSWER:
      There are several things in play in regard to the prostate and erectile dysfunction. It is important to understand that Cholesterol is the base for making ALL of your steroid hormones. The steroid hormones include your sex hormones, like testosterone. If you are not making good testosterone, you are not going to have good sexual function. Since Cortisol is another steroid hormone, there is competition in your body between these two hormones. STRESS wins out over sex in regard to your body deciding which one to make. There are various forms of stress, but your diet plays a huge role in this. Eating lots of carbs and sugars, LOW FAT, will cause blood sugar spikes and this in turn causes lots of cortisol production, leaving your sex hormones with the booby prize. Coffee, and any stimulant has the similar effect.

      The prostate's primary mineral is ZINC. Like the thyroid or any gland that becomes deficient in it's primary mineral, it enlarges to compensate for the deficiency. Most zinc deficiencies are due to LOW stomach acid or people taking antacids. Zinc can only be absorbed in the jejunum if the chyme coming from the stomach has a low pH (between 1.5 and 3.0). Get some liquid zinc and swish it around in your mouth for 30 seconds. Determine when you taste a chalky taste that is nasty during that 30 seconds. If it tastes like water and no sensation, you are very deficient in that.

      Doctors are very stupid to tell patients to lower their total cholesterol, if you are a man, below 240 or even higher. That is simply BAD SCIENCE and contrary to what the body needs. Cholesterol is NOT a fat, but needs fats to make it, along with good minerals.

      You should be getting most of your calories from fat, not carbs. Eat about 75 grams of carbs per day, cut out the sugar completely, and eat more good fats, like coconut oil, palm oil, real butter from RAW CREAM of grass fed cows, avocados, and AVOID anything with soybean, canola, cottonseed, corn oils. Make sure you are well hydrated:

      The average person needs water at the following rate:

      Take your total body weight and divide by 2. That number is the amount of water in ounces that you need to drink each and everyday. Along with that, you should consume 1/4 teaspoon of "air dried sea salt" in conjunction with each quart of water you drink. This puts the electrolytes in your body that will give you proper hydration. The typical white table salt you buy in stores like the Morton Salt, for instance, is terrible for you and has loads of chemicals added. Avoid that junk. If you drink ANY diuretic drinks like, sodas, coffee, tea, alcohol, commercially prepared fruit drinks, energy drinks, etc., these all dehydrate you and you will need to add more water to the total to compensate for the water loss due to these diuretic drinks. Take the total ounces of the diuretic drinks and multiply by 1.5 and add that total to the original total to come up with the proper amount of water you need to drink each day.

      The thyroid gland needs to be working well, but it is part of the pituitary axis and can be reacting to the other three glands in that axis causing it to be depressed. You need to make sure you are getting adequate iodine in your body to support good thyroid function. Paint a 2" x 3" patch of iodine on your forearm and see how long it is visible. If it disappears in a few hours, you are deficient and this will contribute heavily to your problem. You should be able to see it 24 hours after you put it on.

      The next thing that is very important is to make sure you are making good hydrochloric acid in your stomach. A certified nutritional therapist can test you for that and get you on the road to great health.

      As the other poster suggested, exercise is also a metabolism booster and does also help somewhat.

      good luck to you

    • ANSWER:
      Dr. Hulda Clark has an herbal cure that she proves has a 95% CURE rate for even advanced cancers. She has written several books on the subject, and the FDA hasn't been able to get her books off the market, because she PROVED it legally. I think it is criminally negligent that our press isn't all over this development.

      You can get a used copy of, "The Cure for All Advanced Cancers" by looking around on the Internet. I have been trying her approach on myself with modest success--because I am having a problem getting some of the items she specifies--and have bought several of her books, and am now reading them.

      Also, check this out--http://www.altcancer.com/video/hoxsey_ds...

      Treating oneself for an AMA-defined disease is against the law, so you won't get many people to go public on this for fear of reprisal. I just try to spread the word of valid options. Watch the video. Best of luck.

      There are more and more reports by establishment oncologists doubting the value of chemotherapy, even to the point of rejecting it outright. One of these, cancer biostatistician Dr. Ulrich Abel, of Heidelberg, Germany, issued a monograph titled Chemotherapy of Advanced Epithelial Cancer in 1990. Epithelial cancers comprise the most common forms of adenocarcinoma: lung, breast, prostate, colon, etc. After ten years as a statistician in clinical oncology, Abel became increasingly uneasy. "A sober and unprejudiced analysis of the literature," he wrote, "has rarely revealed any therapeutic success by the regimens in question in treating advanced epithelial cancer." While chemotherapy is being used more and more extensively, more than a million people die worldwide of these cancers annually - and a majority have received some form of chemotherapy before dying. Abel further concluded, after polling hundreds of cancer doctors, "The personal view of many oncologists seems to be in striking contrast to communications intended for the public." Abel cited studies that have shown "that many oncologists would not take chemotherapy themselves if they had cancer." (The Cancer Chronicles, December, 1990.)
      "Even though toxic drugs often do effect a response, such as a partial or complete shrinkage of the tumor, this reduction does not prolong expected survival," Abel finds. "Sometimes, in fact, the cancer returns more aggressively than before, since the chemo fosters the growth of resistant cell lines." Besides, the chemo has severely damaged the body's own defenses, the immune system and often the kidneys as well as the liver.
      In an especially dramatic table, Dr. Abel displays the results of chemotherapy in patients with various types of cancers, as the improvement of survival rates, compared to untreated patients.

      This table shows:

      -In colorectal cancer: No evidence survival is improved.
      -Gastric cancer: No clear evidence.
      -Pancreatic cancer: Study completely negative. Longer survival in control (untreated) group.
      -Bladder: No clinical trial done.
      -Breast cancer: No direct evidence that chemotherapy prolongs survival; its use is "ethically questionable."
      -Ovarian cancer: No direct evidence.
      -Cervix and uterus: No improved survival.
      -Head and neck: No survival benefit but occasional shrinkage of tumors.

      the brainwashed skeppies don't believe in freedom of choice. they believe in tyranny. they presume superior knowledge in all health matters, and the right to impose their allopathic stupidity and failed methods on the public. don't be surprised if soon they advocate forced medication foe people who disagree with their idiocy, claiming they must be insane not to want vaccinations, vioxx, electro shock, etc., etc.. they have a lot in common with hitler, stalin and mao.

    • ANSWER:
      the only thing that work for me was seeing a doctor, she gave me some antibiotics for a couple of months which got rid of them all.

      With your face, less is always more.
      Dont overwhelm it, use as little products as possible.

      But I WILL answer your question properly.
      1. Face scrub:
      Brown Sugar, and honey, apply about half and half of each then apply it rubbing it onto your face in circular motions for about a minute, then rinse off.
      You cant really go wrong with that, it's probably not going to irritate it or anything, just remember to be EXTRA gentle. Use this about 1-2 times a week.

      2. A Mask
      All you need is an egg and two bowls.
      Separate the egg with the whites in one bowl and the yolk in another. Beat the whites, and apply to your face. Trust me, you'll know when its ready, your face wont be able to move. Then beat the yolk lightly, and after you've rinsed the whites off, apply the yolk. Leave that on for about 5-10 mins then rinse off with cold water. Use this about 1-2 times a week too.

      3. Treatment.
      This helps SO MUCH.
      You'll need,
      -cotton balls
      -honey
      -salt
      -water in a glass
      -stopwatch or timer of some sort.

      If you have a pretty big pimple, put a LOT of salt in a cup of warm water, and soak a cotton ball in it for about a minute.
      Then take it out, squeeze it till its only damp, and press it against the pimple pretty firmly. Hold it there for exactly 3 minutes.
      Then, soak 2 more cotton balls, then place on either side of the zit, and VERY SLOWLY, move them towards the pimple, squeezing it VERY VERY VERY gently, I cant stress that point enough.
      Last of all, apply a dab of honey on it, and go to sleep. In the morning, rinse it off.

      4. Steaming
      Sometimes it helps to loosen up your pores,
      just boil a kettle, fill a bowl up witht he hot water, then put your face above it so the steam opens up all your pores, then wash your face as usual. Sometimes its good to use a mask after that because it will get deep into your pores.

      good luck

  18. QUESTION:
    Are there any natural remedies to get ride of freckles?
    I have 3 little dark freckles on the side of my face there the size of the zero on your keyboard but more round. There beauty marks but there flat on my face. I heard if you rub natural oil on your face for 2 weeks it will fade and then be gone. I want something pain free, and that doesn't cost much. Please help I'm really self conscience!

    • ANSWER:
      Freckles are just an excess of pigmentation in a concentrated area. There's really no way of getting rid of them permanently without extensive treatments. Lemon juice is said to fade dark pigmentation so you might try that, but no guarantees. If you can, try buying a gel or cream with hydroquinone or some sort of bleaching product in it. Make sure to put strong sunscreen on your face to keep them from coming back. (sun causes your face to produce more melanin to protect it from the rays) anything that exfoliates or removes the top layer of your skin is going to lighten them. Good Luck!

  20. QUESTION:
    home remedies for a spot free, even, flawless natural complexion?
    i have very bad skin, and are desperate to find a way to fix it.

    i get quite a few spots from time to time. i'm not covered in them, but i do have a fair amount. i'm fed up of trying expensive products to get rid of them, so i want to know if there are any helpful home remedies for getting rid of, and keeping away spots?

    i have a very uneven skin tone. i'm all red and blotchy in different places... i normally find my self plastering my face in make-up to cover it (it's that bad!) but then i usually end up looking orange and cakey. (plus i have oily skin, so my make-up tends to go "shiny" after a few hours or needs topping up)...

    are there any nice, cheep, simple home remedies for getting rid of spots, and evening out my complexion?

    website links, step by step instruction and so one will be muchly appreciated!

    many, many, many thanks in advance <3

    Looking for natural remedies and help for my babys first cold. Her nose was running clear now its getting yellow & thicker. She started coughing as well.

    Natural remedies for growing taller?
    So I'm 16 hitting 17 and I'm 5'2. My father is 6'even and my mother is 5' even. I don't see me getting much taller. In the past 8 months I have grown actually about 1 1/2 inches. Sicne about 2 months ago I have been exercising pretty good, actually buffen up every where, and am getting really strong and been having bigger Appetites, I've gained about 14 pounds in the last 3 weeks. What I was wondering, is there any natural home remedies that are free and will atleast make me grow more? I don't have the money for any HGH injections or pills, so don't leave comments on that, and don't advertise stuff, please.

    • ANSWER:
      You still have about a year to increase your height atleast marginally. In yoga doing Tadasana,
      Matsyasana, Ustrasana and Dharmikasana (also called yoga mudra in vajrasana) will definitely
      help. The english name of these asanas are Palm Tree posture, Fish posture, Camel posture.
      There is no english equivalent for the last posture which you can label as religious posture.
      Also try to consume little extra of protein via fruits and vegetables like avocadoes etc.,
      Good luck and God bless. Cheers! :o )

  25. QUESTION:
    Looking for a natural, chemical-free insecticide for my veggie garden!?
    I just planted a bell pepper and an artichoke plant, and I don't want them to be eaten by bugs. I don't want to use a chemical pesticide. I'm looking for more of a natural, home-remedy to ward off insects. Any suggestions?

    • ANSWER:
      Some natural insecticides would include :

      . Hot peppers - fresh or powder is great for repelling rabbits and other pests. Many soft body insects can be killed by its acidic "burning" effect. Best when mixed with garlic sprays applications.

      Garlic, onions - all alliums are great for killing soft body insects. Flying insects can be paralyzed by direct hits. Also a great fungicide. Best if crushed or liquified in a vegetable oil tea. Use several cloves of garlic per gallon of water.

      Canola oil, vegetable oils - mineral oils work also, but they are made from petroleum products. Oil sprays suffocate soft body insects. Don't use too much on sensitive plants. May burn leaves. Don't use no more than 1 cup of oil per gallon of water.

      Alcohol - rubbing alcohol is good but it is made from petroleum products. Drinking alcohols are made from plants. Using only a few tblsp per gallon of water will kill many soft body insects. Too much alcohol in water will produce a super herbicide.

      Ground cloves - great repellant and can kill flying insects. Use several tblsp per gallon of water.

      Neem oil - like vegetable oil sprays, it suffocates insects. However, neem goes the extra step of destroying soft body insects' ability to reproduce and makes them starve by removing their appetites.

      Liquid soaps - Only use natural soaps or Murphy oil soap or mild liquid dishwashing soaps like Ivory. Soap help make teas stick better to plants and pests, and they also paralyze many insects in direct contact. Use no more than 1-2 cups of soap per gallon of water. Do not use much on flowering fruit or vegetable plants. Can hinder fruit production.

      Citrus acid and molasses - repels and kills fire ants and similar pests. Mix 1-2 cups per gallon of soapy water. Hot boiling water mixed with garlic products, poured over the fire ant mounds will also kill the queens. You can produce citrus acid from crushing whole oranges or lemons into a tea.

      Hope it helps!

    Big break out on my face! Help! Any natural remedies?
    Hi, I am ttc-ing (1 week late, so I might be pregnant) and I have been unusually breaking out for the past 2 weeks. I used proactiv and that did not work. I just break out again the next morning. Then I read that salicylic acid and benzyol peroxide can be bad for you during pregnancy or ttc-ing, so I stopped using it as of this week. Any safe, natural tips/remedies/advice you can share?? Thanks :)

    P.S.: Already drinking 6-8 glasses of water (no soda, no sugary drinks, no caffeine), and wash twice daily with mild oil-free soap.

    • ANSWER:
      You could try toothpaste or tea tree oil. Or an egg white mask. All you do is put egg white on your face and let it dry. To speed up the drying process use a hair dryer. If you use those biore pore strips that like rip out the gunk, instead you could use glue. Like white kid glue, put it on your nose, let it dry and then peel it off. literally it's like the same exact effect.

  28. QUESTION:
    My acne is getting worse! I've tried anything, have any suggestions on natural remedies?
    My acne is getting worse! I tried a product called acne free terminator 10, on my forehead and cheeks, it kinda made the ance on my forehead less noticable but on my cheeks it dried out the skin. Now my acne is getting worse I have more and more pimples coming on my face everyday! I use clesner and toner everyday. Do you have any suggestions, about natural remedies? Like stuff I could use from my house thats natural? (Lemons, almond oil? ect...) PLZ PLZ HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • ANSWER:
      THIS WORKS FAST & CHEAP!!!
      I used Tetracycline, Proactive, Retina A and had many expensive facials with less than good results. This has worked for me and many many other happy people.

      Go to pharm., Drug store, or Wal-Mart, buy "PURPOSE" bar of soap - Blue box - Made by Johnson & Johnson - wash your face with this 2-3x's per day. Also pick up a LOW strength Benzoyl-peroxide cream, apply the cream by dabbing to the individual blemishes.... DON’T rub it in works using a oxidation/reduction reaction. It will unclog
      dry it out and bring it to a head...DON’T over use this or put anywhere else on your face. It will cause drying and make you look worse.

      Salicylates such as found in regular aspirin among other products work very similar but also remove layers of skin...other over the counter creams with this product will dry out pimples but maybe too hash and cause surrounding skin trauma..
      I have seen many people recommending crushing aspirin and making a paste which probably will dry out the blemish but again pretty strong and probably will cause more tissue damage and bigger scars as an anti inflammatory probably would take the redness out... again pretty harsh for sensitive skin.

      Also, If need which probably will for moisture ASK FOR "NUTRADERM lotion" - the original not the new stuff, this works great and wont clog pores or leave a residue on your skin...Any lotion that is completely oil free and hypo allergic should work but again I recommend Nutraderm. I have heard from people online that "Purpose" also makes a lotion that is good, Neutrogena, and Nivea make good products also. I recommend Nutraderm from experience and my dermatologist.

      "Purpose Bar" & "Nutraderm" are oil free and hypo allergic they contain no perfumes and are great for both men and women. I have also heard great reports of this soap helping improve skin tone. Some people recommend the "Purpose liquid soap" saying
      that the bar did dry out their skin some. The rational behind using the bar is that there are no ingredients in it that will clog pores, and according to dermatologists they recommend the Bar. I have also heard good responses from "cetaphil soap". These products are safe for all skin colors and tones. I highly discourage use of Proactive and other harsh chemicals for people with some natural color in their face due to the bleaching and drying effect it has shown in many many people.

      Additional TIPS: acne, pimples, etc are frequently cause by a bacteria or hormone issues that cause clogging of pores. DON’T PICK POP POKE (your hands are the dirtiest part of your body) and will cause: infections, spreading of germs, more breakouts and scarring
      DON’T EVER listen to people online who tell you to scrub your sensitive skin or use harsh chemicals such as: Lemon juice, vinegar, alcohol, etc... DON’T EVER use that APRICOT CRAP!!! DON’T USE PROACTIVE- this is expensive and harsh it may kill the bacteria because also Benzoyl based wash but will irritate skin and cause bleaching of face and neck.... Other similar treatments may work.. Also things such as Accutane but have SERIOUS side effects such as Major Depression, & birth defects in unborn children, among others
      If you wear make up make sure it is oil free, & hypo allergic...Eating healthy...Drinking plenty of water.. Changing pillow cases freq. ...avoiding dirty sports equip. such as helmets...can not hurt...Acne/pimples again are caused by pores/hair follicles becoming plugged up, this plugging then causes an inflammatory reaction - redness and infection (pimple)..black head is dirt or old oil trapped in pore, while a white head is the same thing you just don’t see the dirt instead you see white pus (lymphocytes that accumulate in the area to fight the infection) It has been shown in many studies this most often not caused by what you eat (chocolate etc... or how clean you are) but most often by either excess oils plugging pores or a bacteria on the skins surface. - Proactive works in some people because it is a strong Benzoyl peroxide based washed but is most freq. to strong
      for people with sensitive skin - this is why alot of people get excessive drying and flaking, rashes, bleaching or breakouts from the product. Retina-A does decrease the bacterial growth on your face but also removes dead/living skin, this can work well in some individuals and has been shown to reduce wrinkles and scars but again I feel this is pretty harsh on sensitive skin prone to breakouts. If you choose Retina-A never use this product during the day only at night due to the sensitivity it will give you to the sun. You must also get a prescription for this product and I really don't believe it is worth the damage it does to your skin. In some rare cases for very deep/large boils and cyst types
      of pimples oral antibiotics maybe needed but I would first recommend trying "purpose" and a low dose "benzoyl-peroxide cream" along with a good oil free moisturizer "Nutraderm... etc" this does work well.

      THIS WORKS FAST AND CHEAP!!! I no longer get expensive facials, take oral antibiotics, or even NEED makeup... I am very happy - Have very good skin... and have many many other happy friends... THANKS again to my WONDERFUL DERMATOLOGIST... TRY THIS!! GOOD LUCK.... PS. "PURPOSE" costs about ---------------------------------------------

    • ANSWER:
      Hi Mouse. Medical research indicates that iron deficiency and/or magnesium deficiency can cause RLS. Both of these deficiencies are very common. Folate (folic acid - a b-vitamin) may also play a role.

      Below are links to several scientific papers that discuss these issues.

      http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17557494?ordinalpos=2&itool=EntrezSystem2.PEntrez.Pubmed.Pubmed_ResultsPanel.Pubmed_DefaultReportPanel.Pubmed_RVDocSum

      http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17604457?ordinalpos=1&itool=EntrezSystem2.PEntrez.Pubmed.Pubmed_ResultsPanel.Pubmed_DiscoveryPanel.Pubmed_Discovery_RA&linkpos=4&log$=relatedreviews&logdbfrom=pubmed

      http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17984624?ordinalpos=1&itool=EntrezSystem2.PEntrez.Pubmed.Pubmed_ResultsPanel.Pubmed_DiscoveryPanel.Pubmed_Discovery_RA&linkpos=3&log$=relatedarticles&logdbfrom=pubmed

      http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/9703590?ordinalpos=6&itool=EntrezSystem2.PEntrez.Pubmed.Pubmed_ResultsPanel.Pubmed_DefaultReportPanel.Pubmed_RVDocSum

      As a Chiropractor it saddens me that many medical doctors are so quick to jump to the prescription pad and the use of drugs to mask symptoms, rather than doing the hard work of determining and treating the underlying CAUSE of their patient's symptoms. Note in the paper below, the large emphasis on drugs, and the relative downplaying of nutrients.

      http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18925578?ordinalpos=1&itool=EntrezSystem2.PEntrez.Pubmed.Pubmed_ResultsPanel.Pubmed_DefaultReportPanel.Pubmed_RVDocSum

      With a diagnosis of RLS, your serum ferritin levels (ferritin is the storage form of iron and the blood level needs to be in the highest third of the "normal" range) and RBC or WBC magnesium levels should be measured - or at least put the patient on a trial treatment with these basic nutrients.

      I hope you find something useful here in your pursuit of relief from this challenging condition.

      Best wishes and good luck.

  34. QUESTION:
    Natural Remedies??????
    Hey people! Can you suggest any common natural remedies for me?
    Example: Things that helps your hair get softer or better(in any way)
    Things that get rid of scars(oh I loathe mosquitoes!)
    This that make your face pimple free/like what the movie stars look like when they have make up on, but natural.
    Things that gives you softer skin?
    Shiny nails?

    Those are just examples.Anything is okay. Really. Just simple and easy remedies using common ingredients like salt, oil,sugar(if there is hahaha) grass vinegar that type of things. Just suggest some if you know. Thank you for reading and thank you again if you post some helpful answers. Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      i have a few, using eggs as a shampoo makes your hair look very healthy and shiny, although it does smell a bit eggy when dried, but making sure the egg is rinsed out properly should prevent it from smelling.

      If you have dark hair and are starting to grey then boot polish is a good cover up

      using toothpaste on pimples helps dry the spot out making it go away quicker.

      Using used tea bags on your eyes can get rid of dark patches underneath the eyes and it can also reduce the appearance of bags under the eyes.

      lemon juice is a natural bleach that lightens any dark scars and blemishes of the skin you may have.

      Mash a banana with milk and apply on face and leave it for 20 minutes. Wash it with cold water to get a skin that will glow.

      Apply honey on your face and neck for 20 minutes. Wash it with cold water. Your skin will glow and become soft and smooth.

      finally washing your hair with vinegar is a good way to rid head lice.

  35. QUESTION:
    What natural remedies help with a systemic yeast infection?
    I am suffering with a systemic yeast infection and was wondering what natural remedies (eg. supplements, tinctures, herbs, vitamins/ minerals) could help me to get rid of the excess yeast in my system. I already know the following helps:
    Yeast free diet
    Garlic
    Probiotics
    Grapeseed extract
    Apple-cider vinegar

    I realise that there is no out right 'cure' but suggestions of anything that could help would be most appreciated.

    Please remember im asking about SYSTEMIC (internal) yeast infection; not a vaginal, vulval or oral infection

    @Natpractitioner - FYI a yeast-free diet includes a sugar free diet

    • ANSWER:
      Actually, those 5 are exactly it.
      I would first suggest a high dose of Probiotics (like 6-10 billion viable organisms or more) with at least 4-6 different strains of probiotics. If you take that with the other 3 supplements, you should feel better hopefully very soon (maybe a few weeks or so, depending on how bad it is). The garlic is a great agent to fight the year, the ACV is a great cleanser, and the grapeseed is a fantastic antioxidant for protection.
      And yes, you're right... a yeast-free (and sugar free) diet would be one of your best steps in addition to the probiotics. Good luck!

  36. QUESTION:
    Does anyone know any good and safe natural home remedies for Kidney Stones?
    I get Kidney Stones. I'm a 24 year old female. My first stone was when I was 18 years old. I believe in the left kidney, if I am remembering correctly. If anyone reading this has ever had them, then you know they're excruciating! :( At that time, I had insurance (I live in the state of PA so I was covered under some PA insurance for children called CHIP.) so, I went to the local ER. Determined I had one small stone. It was a couple millimeters. They said to drink TONS of water and try to catch it, and gave me Percocet for the pain. I ended up passing the stone after about 2 days. But, was unable to catch it, so I don't know what causes my stones. I currently have no health insurance and no money to pay for doctors and such, and visits to the ER are very expensive here.

    Back in December I got the same pain I get from a Kidney Stone in my right kidney. Went to the ER, they didn't do much for me, since I have no way to pay. They give you very minimal treatment if you can't pay. They basically just gave me a prescription for Vicodin and 800mg of Ibuprofen tablets. I had pain off and on for about a week, eventually, it just stopped. I never did pass the stone though, I'm sure of that. Then about a week ago, I started getting really bad pain in my left kidney. So, I guess I have a new stone in there. I had some Vicodin left from December. But, I used all that. Now all I have is the Ibuprofen. It doesn't really work. I should go to the ER when I get pain again, but I am tired of racking up huge bills that I can't pay. Not to mention, they usually just give Vicodin for the pain (which no longer works on me) and if I ask for something else it might just look like I only want the drugs. So, I'm trying not to go to the ER unless I really have to. Thankfully, today has been pain free. I hope it stays that way. But, I'm sure I didn't pass the stone. As far as I know, I have at least one in each kidney.

    So, what I am wondering, does anyone know any real (and SAFE) natural remedies that can help break up/dissolve kidney stones? I've been reading up online about all this stuff, I read that Apple Cider Vinegar mixed with some warm water is supposed to help certain kinds of kidney stones. I don't know what mine are from though or if the ACV solution will help. But, I started trying it last night. I also read Lemon Juice with Olive Oil helps, but there is no way I am trying that one. That sounds horrible. I am just barely managing the ACV. I also read Lemon Juice with water helps. I might be able to try that one. They're the only ones I know though.

    So, please, if anyone knows any other safe, natural home remedies I can try that would help break up/dissolve my stones, that'd be great. Also, for those familiar with the remedies I already mentioned, does anyone know if they're good for all kinds of kidney stones? Or, only certain kinds? And, which kinds are these remedies good for? Sorry for this being so long and informational, I just wanted to be as specific as possible about my history in case it helps. I'm just desperate to try to get rid of these stones and get some relief. Please, honest and thoughtful answers only!

  37. QUESTION:
    Is there a natural remedy for removing blackheads?
    Preferably home made? My mom won't buy me any products for this, because she's kind of a health freak and wants everything to be natural and chemical free...

    • ANSWER:
      hello....
      sure..
      i can understand your mom,that she thinks of not getting your skin more worser,so she avoids u to buy any chemical products...
      then why dont u let her understand about BLACK HEAD STRIPS...which are chemical free,they just removes dirt in the form of black head...they are easy,cheap,chemical free,fast process of removing black heads
      black heads are harder to removing using natural ingredients,but lemon juice with crushed dry orange powder works a bit...
      or just steam for 10 min and rub gently with soft towel this works well than using lemon with orange powder...because after steaming the dirt becomes soft can be removed easily.
      if they are stubborn mix some sugar in honey and scrub gently they will be removed.
      ALL THE BEST

    What are some natural remedy's for stress related migraines?
    I am looking for some natural remedy's to treat stress/anxiety related migraines. Its mainly for a man who has little free time so things like a yoga class would be out... but has anyone tried tea's or supplements or things of that nature that could be helpful?

    Thanks!

    • ANSWER:

  40. QUESTION:
    Natural remdies to get Silky, volumised hair?
    Are their any natural remedies to get silky volumised hair? I heard egg and mayonnaise is quite good, but are their any others? Also, are their any natural face masks you can make to get oil-free glowing skin?

    Thanks x

    • ANSWER:
      Mayonnaise is pure cholesterol, which is what a lot of good hair treatments contain, so it is really good for your hair. Another thing is avocado, I've never tried this myself as I don't buy avocados, but I know it's really good in making your hair soft and shiny. If you google it you'll find a lot of recipes explaining avocado and the hair benefits it has. I for one am OBSESSED with homemade facial masks and scrubs. An excellent source for evening out your skin tone and getting rid of oil is pure 100% yogurt. you must make sure it's natural though! plain, unflavored, organic yogurt. after washing your face, just pile it on your skin and leave it for about a half hour, then wash off.
      A facial scrub that I made and currently still use is excellent for oily and acne prone skin, you get a little bowl and pour in about 2 tablespoons of honey, 1 teaspoon of cinnamon, 1 teaspoon of ground nutmeg, 1 teaspoon of corn meal, a few drops of lemon (NOT lemon juice from the bottle, buy the lemon!), and one drop of an essential oil, my favorite is pure vanilla extract. I used this every day when I would wash my face, and since my skin tends to breakout I poured a little bit of my acne cleanser into the mix and it really did make my skin look glowing and it's a really good exfoliant. Honey is amazing for your skin, another great mask for oily skin is mixing honey with some PLAIN oatmeal, the one in the big container, and make a paste. the oatmeal absorbs excess oil from your skin while the honey leaves your skin feeling baby soft. one last mask that I have used for my oily skin is actually taking some uncoated aspirin tablets, about 10 or so, and putting them on a plate. pour a tiny bit of water on it, letting the aspirin absorb and dissolve. pour some honey into it and use it as a mask. honey is an antiseptic as well and aspirin contains salicylic acid which is a great pore cleanser.

    What are your favourite comforts when you're sick? Any secret home remedies? I prefer to get through these things drug free, so any natural remedies that you use to make life a little easier when you're sick would be very muchly appreciated!

    • ANSWER:
      I always feel nice crushing up some mint leaves, smells nice and refreshing, or anything else that smells soothing. A nice warm bowl of soup is delicious. Laying in bed can be boring but its warm and comfy, and if you begin to drift away, at least you're in your bed. Being outdoors for fresh air and nature for a little bit is always soothing for me. "REST AND PLENTY OF FLUIDS!"

      Thats pretty much what I do. Oh and I love Orange Juice.

    How can I have smooth, spot free skin?
    I really want skin which is hydrated, smooth and no pores or spots. Whenever I try sport cream on my forehead, it dries it out in a couple of days. I've tried drinking water, it helps a bit but my legs are still dry. My forehead has some spots on them and on my face I have these pores and little bumps which look clear spots. How can I get rid of it, without buying lots of products? Any natural remedies or food?
    The only vegetable I like is sweetcorn. What type of fruits do you recommend I should eat?

    • ANSWER:
      Keep your body healthy and it will come out in your skin. I know its an old cliché but it really is true. I have the problem that I don't like fruit and veg very much and I don't like to exercise and I don't like water, but on the occasions where I have really put my mind to sorting myself out (force feeding myself fruit & veg and drinking flavoured water) it has worked and I have felt so much better about myself. My face cleared up and my skin glowed.

      Eat healthily, exercise, invest in a good facial sauna, take some good vitamins (visit holland & barratt) and away you go... Good Luck!

    Natural cure for Histrionic Personality Disorder?
    I found that I am suffering from a condition called Histrionic Personality Disorder for the past 5 years or so. I am glad to finally understand why I am the way that I am, but I cannot afford any therapy etc. Does anyone know any free psych help for people with no insurance or money, or any NATURAL remedies such as diet or certain meditation etc? <3

    • ANSWER:
      A lot of areas have public mental health clinics that work with ppl who have no/low income and no insurance. There is a sliding scale based on income. You can call the hospital or ask around.

      As for natural remedies-positive thoughts, mediation, prayer, journaling, exercise, staying busy with enjoyable things, trying to be nicer and more sociable, trying to improve and change the way you think.

      Diets won't change your personality disorder eating healthy will make your body more healthy.

  44. QUESTION:
    What are some natural remedies or organic products to provide eczema relief?
    My boyfriend and I have been dating for over 3 years, and recently one day - almost out of nowhere - he was experiencing terrible dry, irritated skin. It is almost as if as time goes by, it continues to worsen for him. He has been to a dermatologist, and the creams he has been given provide no relief to him.

    We've currently been reading online about numerous ways that would be a help to him, such as organic moisturizers, saunas, even an oatmeal bath. Right now, we are still unsuccessful with giving him anything to soothe his skin.

    I have been looking at products by companies who sell organic and all natural products, and I am looking into fragrance-free olive oil soap bars and organic moisturizers from Kiss My Face.

    We live close to a rather large store that supplies organics, and I'd prefer to find something organic or even natural to help him with his skin. It is getting to the point where he cannot even fall asleep because he is up all night scratching, and eventually he will become so exhausted he will just pass out wherever he may be. This is also a concern to me, because there is no way to know where he will be when he falls asleep.

    If you know of any companies, products, oils, or anything that could provide him the relief he needs, I will greatly appreciate your help! Thank you very much.

    • ANSWER:
      I treat my eczema with herbal remedies from serenaskin.com., and I'm very happy with the results. Cream and spray cleared the skin and now I just take anti-eczema extract to prevent future flare-ups. There are no steroids in this products. Worth a try.

  45. QUESTION:
    Effexor or Natural Remedies?
    I've had pretty bad depression/anxiety for quite a long time. I'm at a point where I want to cure it so badly NATURALLY. I hate taking drugs with side effects that mask the problem. But, the way I feel is pretty bad. Are there any success stories out there that involve curing suicidal/negative thoughts with just natural supplements? The thing is, I tried to go pill-free last summer and it was the absolute worst experience of my life. I would exercise and try everything in my right mind to be happy and calm, but it didn't work. I heard Effexor is known to pull people out of the dark. I tried it for a day once and it made me very irritable and angry. Should I try it again? I'm afraid I'll have to take meds for the rest of my life, and yes I know all about the withdrawal symptoms/side effects this drug brings. However, I barely even leave the house anymore. I'm so emotionless, don't even have the natural ability to laugh or smile, and just want myself back. Thanks. Top answer rewarded.

    • ANSWER:
      I've taken just about every antidepressant out there. Effexor is the only one that ever did me any good and it's the only one that i'd take again. And yes, the withdrawal is terrible and you'll get it if you even miss a dose or two.

      As far as supplements go, I've taken SAMe and had good luck with that in the past.

      Of course, whether it's prescription or OTC, half of the effectiveness of anti depressants seems to be placebo effect anyway.

      Lately, I've been going out walking for about an hour every evening. I get plenty of other types of excercise at work every day.. but there's something about going for a nice long walk that just seems to help. I recommend you try that before anything else.

    What is the natural remedy that can be used as an antibiotic ?
    I tend to get sick a lot mostly from bacteria (infection), allergy, mold, etc. Of course I am careful and try to keep the place allergy / mold free home. Whenever I get sick (bacteria infection / sinus infection / upper respiratory infection ) Conventional doctor would give me an antibiotic and I am feeling better in about 10 days. Fine. But I also know the downside of using antibiotic. What are the healthier better alternate ?

    • ANSWER:
      Try Oil of Oregano, available at health shops. It's a little expensive, but it's a really good natural anti-biotic, MUCH better than Tea Tree oil. But are you sure it's environmental and not maybe dietary? Try staying away from all grains for two weeks, and then no dairy, and see what happens.

  50. QUESTION:
    The popularity of herbal medicine remedies has surged recently. Most of those remedies claim that because they?
    The popularity of herbal medicine remedies has surged recently. Most of those remedies claim that because they are derived from plants they are all natural and drug free. Given the aspirin synthesis what do you think of such claims? Which preparation is less irritating to the stomach the all natural willow bark or synthetic aspirin?

    • ANSWER:
      A 'drug' is anything that causes a physiologic response in your body. Whether it was created in a lab, found on the ground, or is simple as oxygen and water, they are all 'drugs'. A doctor will order oxygen and fluids for someone who needs them, and can order a 'water withdrawal test'.

      A 'natural' remedy generally has an unknown amount of the chemical you want (aspirin in this case) and a whole bunch of other things you might not want (impurities, etc.) that might have unknown side effects.
      A 'synthetic' remedy generally has a highly controlled amount of the chemical, and the impurities are added to help absorption and give it a long shelf-life.

      The amount of aspirin ingested and over how long a time is what determines how irritating it is to the stomach, more so than the preparation.

Benefits Of Brussel Sprouts
Brussel Sprouts are very important nutritionally because they have a long season and are one of the top providers of vitamin C, a cupful weighing 100g (4oz) will give, when raw, over 100mg of vitamin C, which is more than twice as much as the same weight of orange.

After boiling, the vitamin C goes down to 35mg per 100g - a good example of the benefit of using the whole raw brussel sprout juice to obtain the best nutritive value. If you do want to cook the brussel sprouts as a vegetable it is wise to remember that it is best to steam them until just tender in as little water as possible, which should be fast boiling before the sprouts go in. Any remaining water can always be used for soup or in gravy. Why throw vitamins and minerals from the brussel sprouts down the sink? Brussels sprout juice is often used with runner or string bean juice to assist in the treatment of diabetes in adults. Children who have diabetes often do not have the ability to produce insulin, but in adults it can happen that there is a defect not in the production but in the supply.

Diabetes can be a serious condition unless it is expertly managed by a qualified practitioner who will advise on individual treatment, but the Brussels sprout and runner bean mixture has been reported to be a valuable aid to treatment. Brussels sprout is a variety of the cabbage family. The early Dutch gardeners were not only skilled at creating new varieties of tulip, they also produced a number of new vegetables by selectively breeding with wild cabbage (Brassica maritime).

    home remedies?
    home remedies for hair any home remedies are good please also tell me wat they do

    • ANSWER:
      here are some home remedies which are very good for dry hair. i had dry hair myself but when i tried these tips it was great! they've never been dry again!

      Dont go out and buy anything expensive.
      First: Purchase a mild Shampoo (To Clarify hair, I will explain why)

      Second: TRIM your hair ends (May 1 1/2 to 2 inches)

      Third: Here's the magic part: Mix olive oil, almond oil, coconut oil, avocado oil and a "little" honey, (honey u will have to heat so it can blend). Either leave on ALL day or all night (if all nite, DONT use honey)

      Beat up on an Egg: Separate the white of an egg from the yolk, and whip the white thoroughly. Then add 1 tablespoon of water to the yolk and blend until the mixture is creamy. Next, mix the white and yolk together. Wet your hair with warm water, remove the excess moisture, and apply the egg mixture to your scalp with your fingertips. Massage gently until the froth is worked into your scalp, and then rinse the hair with cool water. Keep applying the mixture until it is used up. Continue to rinse until all of the egg is washed away

      Go for the Mayo: Heat up one half cup of mayonnaise until it becomes an oily, white goo and apply to dry, unwashed hair. Cover your hair with a plastic bag and leave on for at least 15 minutes. Then, rinse and shampoo thoroughly.

      Mix up a Tropical Treat: Mash one over-ripe banana (the blacker, the better) with a mushy, rotten avocado. Massage this exotic puree into your hair and leave on for at least 15 minutes before washing out…in the kitchen sink!).

      Grab a Cold One. Beer can give your dry hair a healthy sheen. Before you blow-dry or style, use a pump bottle to spray brew onto your hair. The beer will leave your hair shiny and sleek and its odor will disappear quickly.

      In addition to using these home remedies regularly to avoid dry hair, try the following preventative measures:

      Avoid overshampooing. Shampooing can wash away the hair's protective oils, so try washing less often and use a mild shampoo labeled "for dry or damaged hair."

      Condition regularly. Conditioners protect the hair’s cuticle layer from splitting from the shaft. Pick a conditioner that works well for your hair and use it after every shampoo.

      Wear a hat. Too much exposure to wind and sun can leave hair thirsty.

      Trim off split ends. The biggest problem caused by dry hair is split ends. Schedule a trim every six to eight weeks to keep fraying ends under control.

      Ease up on the heat. Heat (in the form of blow dryers, as well as straightening and curling irons) can quickly dry out hair. Let your hair air dry occasionally. Try using plastic cylinder rollers to straighten hair by wrapping slightly moist hair under and around rollers for about 10 minutes. For curling, try using sponge rollers overnight or sleeping with moist braids.

      Don't swim without a cap. Use a rubber cap to protect your hair from the damaging effects of chlorine. If you must forgo a cap, rub a spoonful of olive oil into your hair before diving in.

      Another thing is also putting in lotion in your hair after you have gotten out of the shower and you can also put in lotion in hair after you have dried it.

      Just rub some lotion on your finger tips and run it through your hair evenly.

      Also, something that will help your hair is to take COLDshowers. What most people dont know is that if you take hot showers, the heat gets rid of the oils and other things that your hair needs to be kept healty and shiney.

      Smash an avocado and mix with jojoba and peppermint oils. Make sure its really smooth you may want to put it in a food processor with a little water. Then apply some to your scalp and the rest on your hair. Massage for a minute or so then put on a plastic cap. Leave for 15 to 30 minutes. The avocado and jojoba oils will moisterize and the peppermint will stimulate your scalp to loosen any dead skin and open your pores. It will feel great. Your hair will grow better and won't be dry. :)
      Hope this helps!
      If this doesnt help just contact me and i can give you more tips for your dry hair!

  2. QUESTION:
    What are some good home remedies that I could do for pore shrinkage??
    Some members in my family have pore problems, not a bad pore issue, but an issue that wants to be solved and prevented by using natural ingredients at home, home-made medicines, etc. I'm looking for home remedies thats natural instead of taking pills, having to buy ointment, facewash, and pro-active. Our family quote is " The more natural things are, the more healthy...The older home remedies work best"

    • ANSWER:
      A simple natural treatment for helping with that is distilled Witchhazel (Hammamelis Virginia). You can usually buy this very cheaply from any chemist (pharmacist) shop. Witchhazel has astringent properties so helps in tightening up enlarged pores and also blackhead removal.

      Inbetween using Witchhazel for its astringent effects on the skin, use aloe vera gel for its moisturising effects. The drying effect of Witchhazel needs to be counterbalanced and natural aloe vera gel is the best natural remedy for that. Aloe Vera and Witchhazel are two products you might ordinarily have in your house anyway, in your natural medicine collection. Aloe Vera for its amazing soothing effects on sunburn/other burns and Witchhazel for bruises/sprains and pimples/spots. Most large health stores stock Aloe Vera gel. Look for an Organic one preferably.

      Another product that can usually bought cheaply and can help and is something you might like to consider using once a week as a healthy and cleansing facial is a mud facial mask. Again, these can usually be bought again from your local chemist shop.

      Hope this helps.

      tweezers or a needle. Simply put the scotch tape over the splinter, then
      pull it off. Scotch tape removes most splinters painlessly and easily.

      ================================================
      Now look what you can do with Alka Seltzer.
      ================================================
      Clean a toilet. Drop in two Alka Seltzer tablets, wait twenty minutes,
      brush and flush. The citric acid and effervescent action clean vitreous
      China .
      ================================================
      Clean a vase. To remove a stain from the bottom of a glass vase or cruet,
      fill with water and drop in two Alka Seltzer tablets.
      ================================================
      Polish jewelry. Drop two Alka Seltzer tablets into a glass of water and
      immerse the jewelry for two minutes.
      =================================================
      Clean a thermos bottle. Fill the bottle with water, drop in four Alka
      Seltzer tablets, and let soak for an hour (or longer, if necessary).
      ================================================
      Unclog a drain. Clear the sink drain by dropping three Alka Seltzer tablets
      down the drain followed by a cup of Heinz White Vinegar. Wait a few

  6. QUESTION:
    How do you treat a broken leg at home, with only home remedies?
    I broke my leg, and my friends want me to send an email about how to treat a broken leg at home with only home remedies. I need some remedies and pretty fast. They want it done before their trip to Jamaica

    • ANSWER:
      The most important thing about fixing a broken leg is setting the bone so that it heals properly. With some fractures you can have a splinter of bone that can get into the blood system, clog and artery and seriously kill you. Xrays are needed and a professional to make sure the bone is straight and then put it into a solid cast that completely imoblizes it.

      Having said that, there are times when you simply can not get to a doctor and people will take matters into their own hands. If I was in that position, I would have to hope that it was just a fracture and not something that needed to be put back into position.

      Here's a link to WebMD.com with advice on home treatment for a broken leg: http://www.webmd.com/a-to-z-guides/Leg-Injuries-Home-Treatment

    I'm sick and need help with some home remedies that you may have to share?

    • ANSWER:
      There are a couple of different home remedies you can use when you have a cold such as yours.

      For a sore throat try an old fashioned warm milk home remedy. You will need:

      1 Cup Milk
      1 Tbsp. Butter
      1. Tbsp. Honey
      Sprinkle Sugar

      Heat the milk with one tablespoon of butter and one tablespoon of honey. If you would like to sweeten it further you can also sprinkle on a touch of sugar. Drink it while it is very hot but be careful not to burn your tongue or mouth. This mixture will coat your throat making it feel better, and the heat from the warm milk will help make the swelling go down.

      For your cough you can try a Bowl Steam.

      Simply fill a bowl with boiling water add 2 tablespoons of Vicks Vapor Rub and place your head over bowl with towel over your head to keep steam in. Breath deeply for a few minutes. Will help loosen up congestion and mucus and eliminate need for cough.

      Gargling with warm salt water can help as well. Combine 1 teaspoon of salt in one pint of warm water. Gargle gently and frequently as needed throughout the day, but be careful not to swallow too much due to the high sodium content. This can not only help give your throat some relief but can also help wash out any secretions in the back of your throat.

      Hope you feel better...

  14. QUESTION:
    Anyone have any good home remedies for a child with adhd?
    My son has ADHD and I dont like giving him drugs any herbal remedies or home remedies anyone knows of???

    • ANSWER:
      I have ADHD and I work with children who have it as well. It really depends on the severity of it. If it isn't too severe, then being consistant with discipline and providing boundries and monitoring how much sugar and caffeine he/she takes may be enough. I grew up taking Ritalin and now I am on Strattera (which is far better). I use Strattera only when I am going to college so I can have the "edge" that others do. I have found that I can control my ADHD myself on a pretty normal basis, but consistancy in my life is the important key. Drugs aren't for everyone, but when your a kid and hardly know what the word control means much less how to do it, drugs can be a great help not a hinderance. Also, having your child talk with a psychologist (one that either has ADHD themselves or have children with it) can be effective. One more thing, if you are lookiing to try an herbal remedy...try RELIV. I have found that it helps in focusing and total wellbeing of not just ADHD, but every part of the body. Good luck!

  16. QUESTION:
    What are natural remedies(home remedies) to treat an abscess?
    I am having an abscess under the skin. I have been taking anti-biotics for it as recommended by the doctor but there is no relief.
    I need to know any natural remedies to treat an abscess which is under the skin
    I had heard that dipping a washcloth in a hot infusion of chamomile tea does some work. But the abscess just became red and softer. Is it bad or good?

    • ANSWER:
      Add 1 cup vinegar to your baths(which you should take every night)
      Put a small amount of anti biotic up your nose. I know it sounds gross, but that's what my doctor said to do
      If the abscess is not responding to your prescription, then it might be MRSA, an anti biotic resistant strain of abscess. Discuss with your doctor about the possibility of MRSA testing. If it turns out to be MRSA, then they will probably change your prescription. Hopefully that will work.
      Also, I know it hurts, but clean it every night. Also, if you're brave enough, STERILIZE your hands and just kinda take the scab off the top of the abscess. This should cause the pus to come out. Clean it up thoroughly, then throw away whatever you used to clean up the pus. This should relieve it a lot.
      However, if the abscess does not go away after this, go to your doctor and they will lance it. It hurts, but it makes the abscess go away, and if none of the above stuff works, then your abscess will do nothing but get worse.
      And make sure to keep the house clean, especially if you are living with other people.

  17. QUESTION:
    How do I get rid of my cold/allergies with home remedies?
    My symptoms are runny nose, sneezing, and stuffiness.Or do I have allergies?Home remedies or organic remedies.

    • ANSWER:
      Nothing is going to cure your cold but time and rest. However, to make the symptoms more bareable try burning some lemon eucalyptus oil and make a hot drink : boil some water, add a slice of ginger, a pinch of tumeric powder, a teaspoon of honey, and a generous squeeze of lemon. This will help clear sinuses, reduce inflammation, help your sore throat and help build imunity. Also try and eat lots of onion and garlic as they contain heaps of phytochemicals which are great for immunity and restoring the body. Also, you can try echniacea tablets which are the common herb used for coughs and colds. However, it is really just designed to help build immunity.

    • ANSWER:
      First of all congrats on getting married! I'm getting married myself on May 5, 2007 so I know what you mean!

      Always check with your doctor before beginning any exercise and nutrition plan.
      You need a good combination of aerobic activity and resistance training combined with a healthy diet. It is not recommended to lose more than 1-3 lbs a week. If you want to lose weight the correct and safe way that will stay off for the long-term, you need a good comprehensive exercise and nutrition plan.

      A good program looks like this:

      Always warm up and cool down

      Muscular Strength & Endurance-you need a good resistance training program that includes exercises for all muscle groups (hips, chest, upper and mid back, legs (quads and hamstrings), shoulders, lower back, upper arms (biceps and triceps), calves, forearms, abdomen, and the gluteus maximus).
      For muscular strength you need high weight and low reps. For muscular endurance you need high reps and low weight. Both are very important to a workout program and I would suggest you to change it out every couple of weeks or so.
      For a beginner, your intensity should be 70-80% 1-RM or 8-12-RM, 8-12 reps, 1 or more sets, 3 times a week for 6 weeks or more when you begin a resistance program. You should begin with 1 exercise for each major muscle group and make sure the days you do resistance training are not consecutive meaning you don't exercise the same muscle group two days in a row. As you continue your program you can add more exercises, add weight, and change up your program to include more days or just work specific muscle groups on specific days. As your muscles grow stronger you will be able to reduce the rest time between each set. You should rest for about 30 seconds between sets.
      As you begin to learn more about weight lifting and gain more strength you can begin to change your program to either target muscular strength or endurance.
      For muscular strength you would decrease your reps and increase your weight.
      Start out trying 2 sets of 8 reps each and see how it works out. You can always add more reps but don’t go over 10 reps.
      You should fatigue your muscles by the 8th rep, especially on the 2nd set. If you are not getting to the point of fatigue this means you need to increase the weight. If you are not able to correctly perform 2 sets of 8 reps then that means you need to decrease the weight.
      For muscular endurance you would increase your reps and decrease your weight. You should try to do 2-3 sets of 12-15 reps.
      Muscle is metabolically active and therefore when you gain muscle it burns more calories and helps to raise your metabolism.
      If you do not have money for a gym membership or do not have access to one, here is a great website to create a work out plan only using your body weight.
      http://www.bodybuilding.com/fun/exercises.php?MainMuscle=&Equip=BodyOnly&Isolation=
      You can also search for all kinds of exercises that use weight.
      Here is another great website for finding some good exercises for different parts of the body.
      http://www.preventdisease.com/fitness/Strength_Exercises.html
      Here is a great link to a comprehensive musculoskeletal atlas of the body to help you understand what exactly you are working
      http://www.preventdisease.com/home/muscleatlas/content.html#102
      Also, if you are having trouble deciding what type of program you should be doing, here is a website that may help you to better understand the different forms of strength.
      http://www.bodybuilding.com/fun/kelly2.htm

      Cardiovascular Endurance-This part is extremely important for fat burning and enhancing your overall cardiovascular performance. You need to include a warm-up and cool-down. In order to have an effective cardio plan you must first make sure you remain in your target heart rate zone for at least 30 minutes a day (you can start out doing this for 3 days a week and build up) and then you can build up to 45-60 minutes a day. This will seriously help to burn fat as well as raise your VO2Max which is basically a number that represents the capacity of your cardiorespiratory system. The higher the number the more efficient your cardio system is. You can learn more about VO2 at the following website.
      http://www.preventdisease.com/news/articles/vo2_max_how_fit_athlete.shtml
      In order to determine your target heart rate, do the following:
      know these numbers:
      maximum heart rate= (220-age)
      resting heart rate=(get this by counting your pulse for a minute when you first wake up in the morning)
      heart rate reserve=(maximum heart rate-resting heart rate)
      then calculate training intensity:
      TI= Heart rate reserve x percentage(use 70%-85%) + resting heart rate
      Now your training intensity number is important because this is the number you want to reach for a particular training intensity. This is the number your heart rate has to get to in order to be in the optimum cardio training zone.
      You can perform the TI equation for 70% and then another for 85% to get a good range for your heart rate. This is your own personal target heart rate zone.
      You can either count your pulse yourself or use a heart rate monitor while you are exercising. You can buy one at most electronic stores. I recommend the heart rate monitor because you don't have to do anything and it lets you know where you are. Some even beep when you reach your zone or when you go above it. Mine has a strap you put on under your clothes and a watch that shows you your heart rate as well as other things. Now of course, any type of heart rate monitor will not be perfect because there are factors that are not taken into account, but it is one of the most accurate ways to keep track of your heart rate that is easily available to the public.
      Here is a website to help you calculate your target heart rate zone
      http://www.preventdisease.com/healthtools/articles/thr.html
      Here is a good website for some information on how to measure your physical activity intensity
      http://www.cdc.gov/nccdphp/dnpa/physical/measuring/met.htm
      Now, I needed to tell you all of that so I can let you know what cardio activities will fit this type of requirement.
      The following are great activities for a good aerobic plan:
      cycling, jogging, running, walking, rowing, stair climbing, elliptical machine, aerobic dance, bench step aerobics, hiking, in-line skating, skiing, rope skipping, swimming, and water aerobics.
      Any of these activities are acceptable only if you make sure your heart rate stays within your target heart rate zone. This does not count your warm-up or cool-down either. You need at least 30 minutes within your zone for the best benefits because for most people your body does not begin to burn fat until you have been working aerobically in your heart rate zone for at least 30 minutes. Of course all exercise is good for you, so even if you do not make it to your heart rate zone, it still is good for you and there will be benefits from it. Just work your way up, start slow, and you will be gradually improving your body's cardiovascular performance and burning fat. Once your body gets used to performing aerobically it will begin to burn fat faster than someone who is not on a cardio program.

      You can find calculators at the following website to calculate about how many calories are burned by different activities.
      http://www.preventdisease.com/healthtools/tools.html#bctwr
      Here are a few websites that will help you to begin a fitness walking program
      http://www.preventdisease.com/fitness/fitness_walking.html
      http://www.preventdisease.com/fitness/walking_schedule.html
      Or if you prefer, you can begin a jogging program
      http://preventdisease.com/fitness/fitness_jogging.html

      Body Composition-this includes your body fat percentage, bone frame, as well as how much muscle you have. Most people focus on only weight, but you should not put as much focus on that as much as what your body fat percentage is (get it tested at an exercise facility with skinfold calipers). You should also get circumference measurements done. This includes your neck, shoulder, chest, waist, abdominal, hip (buttocks), thigh (proximal), thigh (mid), thigh (distal), knee, calf, ankle, arm (bicep), forearm, and wrist. You should be able to do this at a gym. You should get all of this information done before you start your program and then you can see how you improve.
      You can calculate an estimate of your body composition and target weight here:
      http://www.preventdisease.com/healthtools/tools.html#bctwr
      The following website will help you to understand a little more about body composition
      http://preventdisease.com/news/articles/muscle_vs_fat_measure_what_matters.shtml

      Flexibility- Most people do not even think about this, but it is very important because it helps to prevent injury and it helps you to perform every day activities. It also has an effect on all your other programs. You should perform 10-12 flexibility exercises every day. Slowly stretch the muscle to a point of mild discomfort but not necessarily pain. Hold stretch for 10-30 seconds, and do 3-5 reps for each stretch. This should take about 15-30 minutes per session. If you do not have time to do this every day, try to do it 2-3 times a week.
      Here are some good websites to learn more about flexibility and stretching
      http://preventdisease.com/fitness/fundament/articles/stretching.html
      http://www.cmcrossroads.com/bradapp/docs/rec/stretching/

      Diet- You have to make sure that you eat right and that means following the food guide pyramid. All those low carb diets or fad diets out there will not help you lose weight safely. You can read more about the risks of low carb diets at the following website
      http://www.preventdisease.com/news/articles/032006_low-carb.shtml
      Know that 1 lb. of fat is equal to 3,500 calories. So if you eat 500 calories less per day for a week than you normally would (by either cutting back or changing what you eat or even by burning 500 calories from exercise) that is 3,500 calories and you should lose 1 lb. that week. I know that does not sound like a lot, but it is a proven fact that you should not lose more than 1-3 lbs. per week because it is not safe nor does it stay off. If you work to lose 1-3 lbs a week then it is much more likely to be the safe way and will stay off for long-term if you continue to live a healthy lifestyle.
      I do not like the word diet because most people think of a diet as a short-term way of losing weight when the most effective way of losing weight is to completely change your lifestyle.
      Here are some ways to change the way you eat:
      Always follow the food guide pyramid with focus on fruits and vegetables and lean meat such as chicken or fish.
      Make sure you get enough fiber and water in your diet. You should get 20-30 grams of fiber every day along with plenty of water. You can go to the following websites to learn more about fiber and tips on how to get more in your diet.

      You should drink a total of 8 eight-ounce glasses of water a day at least. This is different for everyone, but you should be able to figure out about how much water you need a day. You can go to

      Get your carbs from complex carbohydrates (pasta, rice, grains, cereals, potatoes, dried beans and peas) that contain whole wheat. When you buy something such as bread make sure the first ingredient is whole wheat and does not contain the word enriched. You can learn more about carbohydrates at the following website.

      Even when you go out to eat or to fast food places you can eat healthy. Choose low fat or low calorie food items such as a salad ( fat-free cheese and dressing), grilled chicken sandwich, etc. When you go out to eat you can also split an entree with someone or ask them to put half in a to-go box in the back before they even bring it to you.

      Try as much as you can to stay away from saturated and trans fat because they are both bad for you and should be consumed as little as possible. Mono and polyunsaturated fats or good for you but fat should only make up 25-35% of total calories. If the food label ingredient list contains "partially hydrogenated" that means it contains trans fat and should be avoided when possible.

      A lot of people also focus on high protein but in reality you only need .8 grams of protein for every kilogram of your body weight.
      People who are on a resistance training program may consume up to 1.2 grams of protein for every kilogram of body weight.
      So for me I weigh 135 lbs. and I figure my body weight in kg as follows:
      135 divided by 2.2= 61.4 kg
      61.4 kg x .8= 50 grams of protein a day.
      61.4 kg x 1.2=74 grams of protein a day.
      My range is 50-74 depending on my exercise level.

  19. QUESTION:
    Are there any home remedies for dogs with diarrhea?
    I just rescued a 8 year old Schnoodle and now she is experiencing loose stools. I think it's the anxiety of being in a new place with new people. Is there any home remedies to try at home before going to the vet and spending alot of money?

    • ANSWER:
      go to the grocery store and pick up a can of canned pumpkin (not pie filling, you want 100% real pumpkin. shouldnt be more than for a large can). Give her a spoonful. It is a miracle worker for loose poop, and also can help with constipation :P

      If that doesnt help in the next day or two, put her on a bland diet of boiled plain chicken and rice. If that doesnt help in another day or two, it's time to call the vet, it may be an underlying issue.

    • ANSWER:
      I used to have really bad acne, so I have a bag full of tricks.
      -toothpaste will dry them out
      -hydrogen peroxide dries them out
      -no greasy foods
      -wash your face in the morning and before you sleep
      -hot compress will relieve pressure and open your pores... just run a washcloth under hot hot hot water.. hold it to it as long as you can stand it.
      -mud masks are good for your skin too.
      -instead of rubbing your face when you dry it off, pat it dry, and try to use a clean towel every time, not one you dried your body off with.
      Good luck!

  22. QUESTION:
    Help to remove tattoo without laser or web products only home remedies plz?
    I have an old tattoo on my arm and need to get it off but without laser or anything that will cost money.Ive been to the laser doctor about 10 sessions already and nothing barely happened.I want to do it at home from natural products with home remedies.I know already it was dumb to do,i should of thought of it before and laser is what i should do but any home remedies i can try? thank you
    well i heard that lemon juice or milk can work but dont know.There has to be something before spending a fortune.

    • ANSWER:
      -first, duct tape 3 large spoons to the kitchen faucet.
      -run 8.35 feet of garden hose from the faucet to the nearest electrical outlet
      -super glue the hose to the wall above the outlet
      -plug a glade scented thing with a fan plugged into the outlet
      -let the water drip from the hose into the path of the fan's air
      -have a single white mouse tied to toy railroad tracks which make up the lever section of a see-saw
      -have a foam ball balanced on the other end of the see-saw
      (when the mouse gets heavier due to the moisture, it will lower that side of the see-saw and the ball will roll off)
      -catch the ball
      -throw it out the window
      -and finally, stick your tattoo on a hot burner. This will burn the skin, covering up your tattoo.
      (a hot waffle iron might also do the trick)

      good luck

      -----------
      since you didn't realize when you got a tattoo, and obviously still aren't quite sure about how PERMANENT tattoos work......
      I feel like I need to say the following just to try and drill it in your head

      there are no free home remedies.........otherwise nobody in their right mind would pay for laser removal

      you have a tattoo........you should have known when you got it that it was probably going to be there forever

      but again......good luck

      One of the most effective treatments to stop heartburn is by simply making a few dietary changes. heartburn attacks are often linked to some of the food you consume.Avoiding spicy or highly acidic foods especially late in the day.Try keeping a diary for a few weeks of the foods you eat and when you experience heartburn. Chances are you will discover that one or two foods are triggering some of those heartburn attacks. Remove those foods from your diet and you will experience less incidents of heartburn.

    What is some home remedies for coughing from allergies?
    What are some home remedies for a cough? I am taking Sudafead PE which helped break the stuff up but when i get up in the morning I am coughing really bad and can barely breathe for my throat and stuff being coated with the drainage. What is some stuff I can use that is usually around the house?

    • ANSWER:
      Honey often helps.
      Sudafed PE should not help, theoretically, as it is a decongestant (shrinks the swelling of the lining of your nose). If your cough is truly caused by allergies, a better choice would be loratidine (Claritin) or diphenhydramine (Benadryl).

    - Itching
    - Flaking
    - Redness
    - Scale buildup
    - Etc.

    What prescriptions have you tried that work well?

    What over-the-counter products have you used that work well?

    What herbal or home remedies have you tried that work well?

    • ANSWER:
      This is not dangerous or life threatening in any way. This is why no cure has been found yet. Doctors focus on life threatening diseases and there is no more than 2 paragraphs spent on this topic throughout the whole medical education. So for us.. its nothing more than just embaressing and annoying.

      I have been diagnosed with Seborrheic Dermatitis 15years ago and still struggling. It is mainly on my scalp moving out of the hairline now. And mild patches on other parts of the body such as arms, hips and groin area.
      What makes it so difficult is that our bodies dont respond the same way to certain "cures". Therefore, it is a process finding what works for you and illuminating what doesnt.

      I have recently also done some research on Psoriasis. This condition is VERY similar to Sebborrheic Dermatitis and often misdiagnosed by dermatologists unless a proper biopsy is done and tested. Although these two conditions are different diseases, they seem to have pretty much the same treatments. The only difference I could find, is that Psoriasis could also be treated with UV light treatment.

      Apparently Psoriasis is also the one that is found on other parts of the body, besides the scalp, and is also more difficult to get rid of than SD.
      Well, whichever disease I might have (mine wasnt properly diagnosed), I have tried EVERYTHING. These cures (as mentioned) might work for another person, but I havent found mine yet. But here is a couple of tips on what you might want to try (maybe it works for you, as it has apparently worked for others in the past - the essential oils had the best result for me personally thusfar).

      1) Cut out all sugar and yeast from your diet. (incl. beer, wine, ect)

      2) Chickweed. This is NOT chickpees. Its dried leaves, almost looks like dried parsley. Boil it in water for 20mins, and use the "tea" to drink and rinse your hair/body. You dont have to rinse it out.

      3) For the scalp, you can rinse your hair with apple cider vinegar. This is because the acid is strong enough to kill the bad flora, but weak enough for the good flora to survive. It restores the balance between the two.

      4) Coconut oil. Coconuts have natural anti-bacterial properties. Bathing in coconut milk is another option.

      5) I have tried several prescribed shampoos, ointments and creams containing coal tar, cortizone ect. These are pretty harsh on the skin and I personally try to stay away from it as they dont seem to work (for me) anyway.

      6) Milk of Magnesia seemed to have worked for many people. Especially if the problem area is on the face. This is a laxative / antacid. Its name comes from its white milky appearance (similar to gavascon). But this has offered almost immediate relief to many. (unfortunately not me :( ) You use it like you use a normal cream soap and leave it on for a couple of minutes and then rinse. Or if its on the scalp: use it like a shampoo and while you wash, leave it on. then shampoo and condition as normal.

      7) Miracle whip. There are some ingredients in this product that has proven to work for some. I havent tried it yet, but its definitely on my list for this weekend! you leave it on for several hours and then rinse. Ill let you know how it goes.

      8) Then the oils that has been the best option for me sofar: I make a mixture of wheatgerm oil, coconut oil, bergamot and teatree oil. I put it in a little spraybottle (which just makes application easier) and every night apply it thoroughly to the whole scalp, massaging it in. Then rinse it out the next morning. This seem to remove the scales quite nicely.

      9) Exposure to sunlight. This is a bit harder if its on the scalp, since the hair is obviously in the way. But apparently the UVA, UVB and UVC helps. Not too much though.. you dont want to get burnt and develop other diseases later on!! So moderate exposure.

      10) The bananapeel exfoliation. You use the inside of a banapeel and rub it against the effected area. Havent tried that yet either. But apparently its effective for some.

      11) RELAX! Emotional stress definitely has an effect on this condition! My condition flared up really badly since my mother passed away from a really bad cancer she suffered from for 2 years. Try yoga.. try an excersizing program.. meditation.. whatever makes you relax :)

      12) Fish oils. Whether its a tin of pilchards everyday or taken as a supplement.

      Good luck! I will keep you posted if I make any other miracle discoveries! ;)

As of now it smells so horrible! The main problem is a very strong urine smell! Please help me!

    • ANSWER:
      Use a 50/50 white vinegar and water solution to neutralize urine. The trick is to pour the solution on and soak until soppy wet then soak up as much as you can with a towel. Do this 2-3 times and thin do a final soak with plain water and lift as much as you can out. Then let it air dry. the vinegar will breakdown and neutralize the urine. Good Luck!

    • ANSWER:
      Count Sheep.

      Listen to soft music or earth tones.

      Read an hour before bed.

      Take a bath before bed.

      Lay on your back for a while and then change to your side, you will feel more relaxed because of the change of comfort levels.

      Don't eat for an hour before you sleep, otherwise your body has to do extra work to digest food and it's difficult to sleep.

      Warm your sheets in the dryer before you get into bed, this one is AMAZING. :D

      Sleep with an insane amount of pillows, like an unnecessary amount it will make you feel like a princess.

      Hope one of these helps. They're all easy to try. hehe :]

      To add to all of the above. I have these 'gel glasses' that sit over my eyes. I keep them in cool water or the fridge. Take them out in the morning and they help take away the "tired" look.

I don't recommend going cold turkey thou. But I feel better now off all but one' pain med' that i still take as little as possible. i don't like "being numb" to the pain if it means taking several & risks damage to liver / kidneys. I'd rather try to deal with it.

      Walnuts help with migraines and some pain. I take fever-few every day, When I run out, and a week goes by, my migraines come back. Its not to say you won't have headaches, but not constantly as you might have.

      I have cut out sugar in 90% of stuff. I use stevia in place of sugar. You will be surprised how easy it is to change things you never thought you could. I never thought i'd give up coca cola ...but now I can't stand the taste. I don't even like yoplait yogurt, something "suppose to be good for you" the sugar sweetness is so over whelming. I have noticed that some tomato products cause some burning pain. But haven't narrowed that down quite yet. Its basically you can eat most things, just incorporate more fruits and veggies in your diet "the fresher/rawer the better." And water. I drink tea all day long with a couple glasses of water prior to bed...which is well anywhere from 3-6 a.m. to 1-3 p.m.
      One other thing that has helped me is bilberry and cranberry faithfully keeps my from having "female" issues. I hope this helps. Feel free to write back.

      10 ML Skin Care non-Laser Removal

      Usage:
      (1) Clean the nevus and the area around it, use a toothpick (do not use a cotton stick to tip or wipe) to mix the liquid and sediment, and then tip a little amount of the mole remover and apply it onto the middle of the nevus. The area would turn to white colour after 1 minute. Use alcohol or water to clean the mole area after 10 minutes (If you tip the amount of mole remover properly, you don't have to clean). The mole would peel off (May help with finger) in 8 to 20 days. Repeat the process again until the mole peeling off if the colour of the nevus is dark. (it is suggested applying the liquid to nevus on hands or legs first to see the results and learn to control the usage before applying the liquid to other areas of the body, DON'T TRY on FACE for the first time!)

Home Remedies For Itchy Eyes

Maltese Eye Stain - Easy Home Remedy For Canine Tear Stains
If you have been struggling to find out how to get rid of your pet's eye stain or tear stain discharge I can totally relate to what you are going through.

We have several Maltese dogs in our family and a few of them unfortunately had severe Maltese eye stain problems.

At first we did not know what to do. The stains ran down their faces from the inside corner of their eyes down each side of their nose and it was unsightly and gross looking compared to the rest of their luxurious white coat.

We checked with our veterinarian and found that the Maltese breed has a predisposition towards eye stain problems as do several many other dog and cat breeds like: Maltipoos, Bichon Frise, Lhasa Apso, Papillion, Bulldogs, Cocker Spaniel, Shih Tzu and cat breeds like: Persians, Himalayans, Exotic Shorthairs, Devon Rex, and Scottish Folds.

One of the main causes of Maltese eye stain that is most commonly discussed is excess tearing.

If your Maltese has irritated eyes it can cause them to tear a lot. As the tears drain from the eyes the hair around the eyes gets wet and stained. Excess wetness around the eyes can be a breeding ground for bacteria and yeast.
Some of the causes of excess tearing are:

- a genetic predisposition to tearing as our vet explained

- allergies (these could be from the environment or from food allergies or even allergies to smoke or other irritants)

- ear infections

- teething or cutting teeth (common for Maltese puppies from 5 - 8 months old as their adult teeth are appearing)

If you can find the source of your Maltese tearing you can often keep the majority of the tear staining from even starting.

However due to the Maltese predisposition to tear staining genetically, in many cases it is very difficult to either find the source of the tear staining or to prevent it.

One way that all Maltese owners can help decrease the tear stain on their Maltese is to pay attention to the hair around the face and prevent hair from falling into the eyes. A simple top knot on your Maltese can go a long way in reducing the irritation to the eyes that causes more tear staining.

After checking with our vet we learned that our Maltese were okay health wise (thank goodness). The deep reddish-brown stains below their eyes came from the dogs normal tears that drained down the Maltese faces.

We learned that it was common for our Maltese to have tear staining because the tear ducts and bone structure are unlike other breeds and that in most the cases the cause of the color change of the hair and skin occurs when the normal bacteria on the hair and skin react with the clear tears. Even though the tear stains were not a health risk, we still wanted them to be gone so our Maltese could have a beautiful white face to go with their beautiful white coat.

We tried so many different home remedies to help the stains and leaky eyes to go away. We finally found a product that worked like a charm and all we had to was add a simple solution to our dog's food and after a short time the ugly stains were gone for good.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    Any home remedies for itchy eyes?
    I have never had allergies in my life and all of a sudden a couple of days ago my throat , nose and eyes are itchy. Early this morning I took Benadryll and it put me out until 9 am ( I took it @ 5 am) My left eye is itching really bad and watery too. Are there any home remedies for this? Please help, my eye is getting puffy!

    • ANSWER:
      Use vizine and also apply a warm, clean wash cloth to your eyes for a few minutes. Repeat the procedure every couple hours. Try not to scratch your eyes also as this will irritate and make the problem even worst. Make sure there isn't gunk coming out of your eyes because if it is, then you got pink eye.

  2. QUESTION:
    any home remedy for itchy eyes?

    • ANSWER:
      i used to work at eye dr office...use cold compresses.it will temporarilly ease the itching. if you have green mucus or any other symptoms you should see an eye dr soon.

  3. QUESTION:
    Home remedy for itchy, allergy eyes?
    I have allergies and my eyes are super itchy especially on the inner corners. I tried the cold compress, but it only worked for a couple of minutes then it started itching again.
    Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      If wear contacts, take them out. The pollen gets caught in the lens. Also, try some eye drops. Walmart brand allergy eye drops work instantly! What also helps is to sit with the shower on and the doors closed. The steam really helps sinuses and pollen.

  4. QUESTION:
    Any home remedies for irritated red eyes?
    My eye is really red and a little swollen but the swelling is getting better. The eye is not itchy but it burns just a little bit.

    How can I get rid of the red eye? I've seen that sleeping helps a little but I've been sleeping all day but I'm way too well rested to sleep anymore so yeah haha.

    • ANSWER:
      soak a soft washcloth in hot water, squeeze the water out, and lay the towel on your eyes(keep them closed though, lol). It soothes...repeat the steps after the towel gets cold.

      I don't know if it will help...why is your eye red anyway? You will just have to wait for your eye to get better. Try the warm towel though.

  5. QUESTION:
    Home remedies for itchy dog rash?
    My dog has a horrid red rash (might be red from the scratching) and has scratched off the hair on her legs and tummy. It started around her eyes and just got worse. Long story short, we've been to the vet several times and have tried many treatments, but it keeps coming back. He did rule out mange, scabies, and ringworm.
    Does anyone have a home remedy just to relieve the itch?

    • ANSWER:
      It does sound like allergies. Our dogs have had problems with allergies too. Is the problem constant, or seasonal? By process of elimination, we found out one of our dogs is allergic to a certain fabric softener. His skin would get red and irritated when he came in contact with blankets or clothes. It could also be a food allergy. Has the vet recommended a certain diet? I would check with your vet to see if it's okay to put your dog on a plain boiled chicken and rice dinner for a week or so, and see if that helps. If it does, then you've at least narrowed it down to food allergies.

      Another option is seeing an animal allergy specialist, although this can get very expensive. Good luck, I hope she gets better.

  6. QUESTION:
    Any home remedies for pink eye?
    I have pink eyes, and they always hurt and are really itchy. I went to the doctors and got prescribed eye drops but they're not the best. So, do you have any home remedies to help soothe the redness, itchyness, or pain? I've used a hot rag but is there anything else?

    • ANSWER:
      No, the Doctor knows best.

  7. QUESTION:
    Anyone know of any home remedies for spring allergies?
    It was beautiful last night, so i left the window open instead of running the a/c. Bad idea. I woke up this morning with a sore throat, itchy eyes, and a really runny nose. Our car isn't working currently, so I can't buy any OTC antihistamines. Are there any spices (I've heard that spicy foods and garlic can help) that might alleviate some of my symptoms? Or any other home remedies? The runny nose is driving me insane. >_<

    • ANSWER:
      I agree with "maigirl" and "Daddy's little girl". And try to buy local raw honey with a piece of the honeycomb inside, you can ask the local bee-keeper for that. If you chew a small piece of that daily daily along with taking a little honey you will get the benefit of the local propolis, which has known anti-allergy properties.

      Vitamin C combined with Quercetin are both known to have anti-allergy properties also, as does the herb stinging nettle which you can take in the form of a tea, tincture or capsules.

      Best wishes.

    is it contagious? can you get it from hugging people?

    thanks(:

    • ANSWER:
      Conjunctivitis is highly contagious. You need to go to your doctor and get an antibiotic. The antibiotic is an ointment that goes right on your eye. Do Not! Try and put any other type of drops or eye creams that you could find in the medicine cabinet in your eye. There are no home remedies to get rid of it, it is an infection. Have your mom or dad keep you home from school tomorrow and take you to the doctor. You will have to stay home for 24hrs while the medicine kicks in too. Do Not touch your eyes, don't even think about touching your eyes unless you absolutely have to. If you wake up in the morning and it is all crusty wash your hands really well then use a face cloth soaked in warm water to wipe it away. After you do that scrub your hands again really well. You do not want to spread it to the other eye.

  11. QUESTION:
    I have always had slight allergies year round,watery and itchy eyes.?
    for over a month now,maybe more my one left eye has bothered me more then usual.I just figured I had a bad case of allergies,no big deal.it is itchy,watery,constant watery and yesterday it felt like it had been bruised,slight swelling in the corner by my nose and when I slightly pushed it clear liquid came out.I put a warm cloth on it.this morning it was aggravated again only this time slightly white puss/liquid came out of the top of my eyelid.I again put a warm cloth on it.I am planning on calling my doctor in the am(monday)I was wondering if anyone else had ever had an experience with their eyes like this one or if anyone knows what this sounds like it could be or any home remedies.

    note:my whole eye is not effected,only the corner by my nose and only the corner by my nose is a deep red slightly under the eyelid.

    • ANSWER:
      You either have pink eye or a stye. Stick with the warm compress until tomorrow. Also since you have allergies you may have allergy pink eye, I think I have it right now as well. You may want to take a zytrec or benadryl.

  14. QUESTION:
    How do you treat pink eye [any home remedies?]//IS this pink eye?
    I work at a daycare, and recently this kid had to be sent home for what we thought was pink eye [his eyes were bloodshot and he couldn't keep his hands away]. We sanitized basically everything, but when his mom came back, she said he didn't have pink eye [we're still unsure if it really was pink eye... but majority is saying it was]

    My left eye is sort of gunky, and sort of red- it's not itchy, but it's irritated

    Are there any basic stuff I can do to make it go away [if atleast make it go by faster?]

    • ANSWER:
      There are a lot of different kinds of pink eye: but mainly viral and bacterial. However, dry eyes, corneal abrasions, or even ocular allergies can sometimes be confused with "pink eye." The official word for pink eye is conjunctivitis, an inflammation of the clear covering that goes over the white part of your eye.

      Your best bet is to go to your optometrist and see what kind of "pink eye" you have. There's no way to really diagnose it over Yahoo Answers. Just FYI--viral conjunctivitis can be HIGHLY contagious for the first week or so; I would recommend getting it checked out before you head back to work with a bunch of little kids.

    • ANSWER:

  20. QUESTION:
    what are some at-home remedies for allergies?
    My symptoms are itchy, watery eyes, stuffed up nose, and sore, dry throat. It's killing me!!!

    • ANSWER:
      I have had asthma and allergies from birth. Some man made chemicals are called sensitizing agents and I believe that some cleaning fluid I was exposed to early on has made me allergic to everything.
      The first thing you can do is clean up your own act. The healthier you are the less your system will fight and an allergic reaction is your bodies fighting against foriegn invaders. Get rid of rugs, dont use any soap or detergent or shampoo with scent added. Only use hypo allergenic. Stop eating processed foods. Canned and precooked meals contain substitutes for natural ingredients. My latest rage is against corn sugar. It is in practically everything and corn is the only food that I know of that goes in the same way it comes out. After you get yourself and your environment cleaned up. Start looking for other stressors in your life. Ever notice that when you have allergies you are tired. Your body is telling you to rest. Figure out what makes you tired on a daily basis and if possible get rid of the stress. Finally, I used to get chest or nasal infections 2 to 3 times a year. At 44 I had my tonsils out. No more infections. I drain alot more, but the infections have stopped and my allergic reactions have decreased significantly. Last but not lease are the natural remedies mentioned by the other responders. Dont forget to add taking a nice hot shower. Our natural oils collect pollen, dust and dirt. I take a shower at least twice a day. Learn not to tough your face with your hands. I love animals and cats make my eyes blister. After I stopped touching my face, I could pet a cat again.

      There are lots of things to do that will help. Get tested to know what to stay away from. I was supprized to find out I was alergic to red meat. You just never know and the healther you are the less problems you will have.

  21. QUESTION:
    Itchy/watery eyes, itchy throat runny/stuffy nose & constantly sneezing?
    I am going to the doctor next week to see whats up, but what can I do for know?
    I want to wake up tommorow feeling better.
    I tried allergy pills(doesn't work)
    Can someone give me an effective home remedy?
    Why do i have to show my drvers lcnes

    • ANSWER:
      If it turns out that you have pollen allergies, look into LOCAL honey, preferably the type that comes from bees that work on wildflowers. It needs to be local because your local flowers will be represented in the most local honey (national honey probably won't work.) My understanding is that a little bit of this honey in your diet each day would be the equivalent of those more expensive allergy injections...and you will need to build up your immunity over time. The downside is that this only covers pollen, not other things like tree bark and pet fur. Local honey can probably be found in your nearby grocery store or farmer's market. See article link.

  22. QUESTION:
    "Home remedies" for allergies?
    I've had really bad allergies lately, which I'm not used to. I don't like taking a lot of medications, so I'm looking for other ways to relieve my symptoms. I've got runny nose, sneezing, itchy eyes, congestion. You know, the normal.
    I don't know exactly what I'm allergic to. I've developed these allergies over the last few years and haven't been able to pinpoint what causes it. Is there a way to figure that out?

    • ANSWER:
      These natural remedies don’t work as quickly as over the counter antihistamines, so it is best to start taking them at least a month before allergy season begins. If you start trying these in the middle of allergy season, give them a few weeks before you decide they aren’t working.

      Green tea: This common table tea has a natural antihistamine. Drink one or two cups a day and sweeten with honey. You can also use black tea, since it is from the same plant as green tea, but it isn’t as effective.

      Honey: Make sure you purchase local honey. Use it to sweeten teas, or a small amount of it plain. Local honey can help you became resistant to certain pollens. The beneficial qualities of honey are lost, however, when it is cooked.

      Chamomile Tea: This popular tea is also a natural antihistamine. Drink one or two cups a day and sweeten with honey. Don’t use if you are allergic to ragweed because it can make your symptoms worst.

      Ginger: Peel and crush a one-inch piece of fresh ginger root. Place in a mug and pour boiling water over. Steep for 5-10 minutes. Sweeten with honey, if desired. Ginger is both a natural antihistamine and a mild decongestant.

      Garlic: Garlic helps stimulate the immune system and is also a decongestant and used for coughs. Cook with it as much you can. If you enjoy the taste, add it raw to salads and salad dressings because fresh is more effective.

      Peppermint Tea: This tea is used to help relieve congestion. In the warmer weather, it tastes refreshing iced and can help relieve sinus problems and coughs.

      Thyme: This is also a wonderful tea for congestion. It can be used for coughs, sinus problems, and stuffy noses. Prepare a tea using one teaspoon of the dried herb for every cup of water. Never take more than one cup per day. You can also use it in cooking.

      Oatmeal: If your allergies give you hives, oatmeal can be really useful. Pour one cup of boiling water over one tablespoon oatmeal. Let it steep for thirty minutes. Strain it, and then apply the liquid on your hives with a cotton ball. This also works to relive bug bites. Refrigerate the solution and use it in a few days. You can also make this in larger amounts and put it in your bathwater (about four cups of water and four tablespoons of oatmeal).

      Apple cider vinegar: My grandmother used to have me put apple cider vinegar on any bug bites or hives to cut down on the itching. Just dilute the vinegar down with a little water and apply it with a cotton ball. You can also put a little vinegar in your bath.

  23. QUESTION:
    Itchy eyes?
    My four (4) year old son constantly itching his eyes and complain how they sometimes burnt him. I took him to our family doctor and our doctor gave him eye drops but after using serveral times and even repeating this medication: -the eye drops. It only stop itching for a while .

    I think he got a allergy is there any cure for this?
    Is there anyone with this similar problem?
    What can I do is there any home remedy?

    • ANSWER:
      I have terrible allergies. During certain times of the year my allergies will get worse. Allergies cause many things such as stuffy nose, itchy eyes, sickness, being tired, etc. You can try nose spray or some other over the counter medicine.

      My parents for a number of years took me to get allergies shots. You can get them at your doctor's office. When i first started I got a shot in my arm twice a week. After twice a week it will go to once a week and from there once every two weeks to once a month to once every few months. Ask your doctor about this. it might be painful for your son the first few weeks but he'll get used to it and his allergies should get much better. He will also be used to getting shots so if you need to get him any other shots over the year you shouldn't have a problem.

      Other then that just tell him to avoid as much as he can not to scratch his eyes as it will make it much worse and last A LOT longer.

      try Claritin Non-drowsy........... http://www.claritin.ca/en/products/claritin-allergy-sinus-12-hours

      I wonder if you put some vicks rub on or near your nose at night and get a humidifyer and breath in the moist air if that would work?

      You can also rinse your sinuses they have these bottles in drug stores where you can squirt water up one nostril and the water comes out the other nostril to clean out your sinuses. you can put in a salien mixture. Its like swimming in a ocean. the salt water clears your sinuses.

  25. QUESTION:
    Any home remedies for Allergies?
    I have 5 dogs, and i'm allergic to dogs. Stupid, i know, but i'm a dog lover. My Siberian Husky is the worst because she sheds so much. She jumped on the bed with me this morning and ever since i've been miserable. Itchy nose, itchy throat, watery swollen eyes, sneezing and just yuck. I have a prescription for Loratadine, basically it's Claritin 10 mg. I took one, but they NEVER help. Anyone know any home remedies? I'm suffering! And i'm also 5 months pregnant. Pleeeeease anything to feel better!

    • ANSWER:
      A neti pot will help with the nasal symptoms, but can make it worse if you aren't diligent about using distilled (never tap!) water. And a cool compress will help with your eyes. And mentholated throat drops and honey will help your throat. All of which are safe for pregnant women :)

  26. QUESTION:
    how do you get rid of cold symptoms?
    i'm the type to not see doctors, i use home remedies. I'm always home. I had this nasty cold for 2 days now, and im suffering. I got and itchy stuffy nose, thats irritating my eyes, and thats causing a slight headache for me on one side. I hate this, can anyone give me a home remedy for itchy stuffy nose or something like that?

    • ANSWER:
      Are you sure it's definitely a cold and not hayfever? If it's a cold, I recommend Vick's First Defence spray. It's a little costly - about £7, but if you use it at the first sign of a cold it's pretty good. It's a nasal spray and it makes your nose tingle and your eyes water a bit, but how it works is this - it makes you have to blow your nose a lot, and that way you're getting rid of all the germs. I also take echinacea to help boost my immune system. Unfortunately once you've got a cold there's no 100% cure for it, but catching it right at the start is the best bet.

      Benadryl is the most common drug for reactions. You want to be careful though. Be sure that this is a reaction from the neutrogena and not something else. You shouls see improvement in 12 hours with benadryl.pp

  28. QUESTION:
    My eyes are sore, itchy, constantly watering and when I close them they burn and water more. Help?
    This has been going on for about 4-5 days. I have saturated my eyes with eye drops, thero-tears they're called, but they don't work. I have an eye condition where my tear ducts don't produce as much liquid film over my eyes as they should, so I have to use the eye drops when my eyes become dry to make tears for me, if that makes sense.

    But regardless though, it has never been this bad. My eyes hurt, they feel like they are raw, I just want to rub them all the time, they burn, constantly water, my nose becomes really runny and in the morning when I wake up my eyes are really puffy, which is not normal.

    My eye drops don't help, cold and flu tablets don't help, I have no idea what's wrong, but does anyone have any home remedies that might help temporarily until I get to a doctor...please? They are really burning.

    • ANSWER:
      a cool compress would help but you should see an eye doctor as soon as possible! Maybe some benadryl might help, seems like it could be allergy related

  29. QUESTION:
    Terribly itchy eyes, unlimited sneezing, can you suggest?
    I was wondering its allergy due to pollens in this season, but I am home most of the times and even the doors and windows have a net lining, limiting even dust from coming in. Yes, I do have a peace lily plant at home, could this be the cause of my allergy? I have been taking Allegra D daily, since it didnt help, I was prescribed Aerius for allergy, but neither helps....please suggest cause and remedy. Thanks

    • ANSWER:
      Certainly sounds like hay fever. Eat local honey all year round to let your body build a tolerance for the local flora. It will reduce the fever in Summer. Also try mixing a tablespoon of Apple Cider Vinager with it, and use lots of the vinager in Summer. It works for everything.

      You may be allergic to something else either, still try Apple cider vinager.

  32. QUESTION:
    Iz there any thing i can take or a home remedy?
    im allergic to cats ecspecially long haird cats! i got 3 cats now is there any thing i can do or take to stop my flare up in allergies!! i been sneezing for days now and my nose is stuffy an itchy eyes

    • ANSWER:
      Cats are one of the most beloved pets in the world. For some who enjoy the company of a cat, the allergic reaction they get from them is too much to handle. They symptoms of such allergies include itchy skin, red and dry eyes, nasal congestion, sneezing, and difficulty breathing.

      However, if your allergies didn’t arise until after you had your cat for awhile, it can be very difficult to have to give it away.

      There are several things you can do to make your allergy symptoms lessen so you will be able to keep your cat. The allergen is the dander from the cat that compiles around your house in the bedding, curtains, and on the furniture. Since most of us spend at least 6 hours per night in our bed, it only makes sense to stop letting your cat on your bed.

      This will eliminate pet dander while you are resting. It is also recommended that you shower before bed to remove any pet dander that may be on you before getting into bed. You may want to take it a step further, to not allow your cat in your bedroom at all. This will offer you a safe retreat when your allergy symptoms are flaring up.

      If you have cat allergies, change your bedding weekly. Vacuum your carpets daily, and wash your curtains at least once a month. These things will all greatly remove the amount of dander in your home. Your vacuum should have a HEPA filter for best results.

      It is always recommended to wash your hands after handling any pet. It is even more important if you have allergies. Simply touching your cat, then your face can leave you with an uncomfortable evening ahead. Use a micro fiber cloth to stroke your cat. This will eliminate more dander than a bath, and it is easier. If you still have trouble controlling your symptoms, seclude your cats to one area of the house.

      Keeping yourself healthy is the important thing, but hanging on to your cat is also important. Following the basic steps listed here as well as talking to your doctor about allergy shots and medications should allow you to feel good and keep that beloved feline.

  33. QUESTION:
    Beagle with Itchy Eye(s)?
    My Beagle has been having a persistent itchy eye problem. It's usually only his left eye, but he occasionally scratches at the right.

    His scratchy has become so bad, even his snout is getting scars and bloody from the friction. I don't think it's allergies, because he has no other symptoms, and we've tried to clean it out for him, but with no luck.

    Any suggests? Possible home remedies to sooth it until we can get a real vet appointment?

    • ANSWER:
      My dog (beagle/terrier mix) has environmental allergies and the first symptom was itchy eyes with a thick discharge that progressively got worse. The vet prescribed a specific ointment with antibiotics and a mild steroid as well as Benadryl.

      Your dog probably has allergies too. If you live in a home with carpets or in a climate where there is mold, pollen, ragweed, or any other possible allergen, that's the likeliest cause of his itching.

      It's important to take him to the vet to rule out any other possible causes. My vet gave the dog a stain test to see if there was anything wrong with his eyes internally before diagnosing him. If your dog is scratching at his snout, it means it is not just the eyes that are itchy. Does he rub his face in the carpets or walls? Those are all signs of allergies.

      You might want to give him a lukewarm bath with a good oatmeal shampoo to clear away any of the allergens that might be clinging to his coat and give him some relief, but you will need to see a vet for a more long term solution.

      Good luck!

  35. QUESTION:
    Should I go to Urgent Care?
    If this was a normal day, I'd go to my clinic. But it's closed today. In your opinion should I go to Urgent Care? Here are my symptoms:

    Runny Nose
    Sore and Very swollen throat
    itchy eyes
    sinus pain and pressure
    slight cough

    On the whole, I feel okay, but I'm pretty uncomfortable. I'd also appriciate suggestions on home remedies and such.

    Also, you have no way of knowing for sure, but do you think the urgent care clinic will be PACKED?

    • ANSWER:
      Urgent Care clinics tend to be more busy than regular clinics - I used to work at one. I just had this FLU and it lasted 2 weeks! I had a fever with mine though. It started with 2 days of sore throat and then the TRAIN hit me and I was miserable! I would take either Thera Flu or some kind of cold medicine that has Guaifenesin in it.. That helps loosen up the congestion in your sinuses and possibly in your chest since the sore throat could be because of post nasal drip. I would just take it easy. Lots of liquids and soup and stay in bed and watch movies all day and make the trip to the clinic tomorrow. Unless it's and emergency, Always better to see your normal doctor when you can since they see you on a regular basis with your previous records on hand.

  38. QUESTION:
    How can I "un-stuff" my nose?
    My allergies are getting really bad. I have itchy eyes, a scratchy throat, and my nose is practically swollen shut. The only allergy medicine I have here is for runny nose, not stuffy.

    Is there anything I could do to "un-stuff" my nose? Like a home-remedy?

    • ANSWER:
      Though I like the dishwasher answer (lol), something you can do which would also be helpful to your health in general - soup. Or you could go for the spicy foods. Just make sure it's nothing too spicy that would upset your stomach.

      The soup may sound like an old wives's tale or some crazy myth, but with the proper soup (which is where it is decided if it is healthy or not), it can be good. The old fall back of chicken noodle or even tomato soup can give you nutrients you need, you don't have to chew or swallow much (as I'm sure you already know can be difficult with a stuffed nose), and the part that actually helps with the stuffiness is the steam. Don't make it so hot that you can't stand it, but make sure it is good and steamy. And make sure you have tissues close by.

      The other option is spicy foods. The heat from the spices has the same effect as the steam from the soup, especially if the food is well cooked and steams up as well.

      Which one to choose is pretty much boiled down to which one would you prefer and/or do you think would be the better choice for your stomach?

  39. QUESTION:
    i need help with my allergies?
    i don't have insurance so does anybody know ok home remedies for reallllyyy bad nose congestion and itchy watery eyes,something that can help me sleep at night.i've been 2 weeks with sleeping 2 to 3 hours a night because i can't breath through my nose i'm misserable have tried zyrtec,tylenol sinus,suddafed,saline spray,please help i'm despretly in need of something that wood make me feel better.
    Thanks.

    • ANSWER:
      Benadryl will help you sleep and take care of your allergy symptoms. You can take it with other over the counter meds like Claritin. I would take the Claritin in the day and the Benadryl when you are ready to go to bed- it makes me really tired. You might want to try drinking some hot tea or coffee during the day it will help soothe your symptoms. You can use the saline nasal sprays with all of these meds, I used to use Nasonex and that was helpful. Hope this helps- if you have not tried the Benadryl and Clartin you should take it from a person who is allergic to everything.

    How to get rid of the red spots on my face?
    I have about 4 red spots on the bit above my nose between my eyes. They aren't itchy or anything but they are extremely ugly. I have been using tea tree oil on them for a few days which hasn't worked. Also I drink a lot of cranberry juice could this be the cause for the spots. Please tell me any home remedies for my spots... Thanks

    • ANSWER:
      Swap the cranberry juice for water.
      Cut down on any sugar foods that you eat (they are a large cause for spots)
      Keep washing your face twice a day
      Try to avoid touching your spots
      Tea tree is good for getting rid of spots, it just take time

  45. QUESTION:
    Best over the counter medicine for my runny nose and constant sneezing? Alegies maybe? Ive tried Benadryl but?
    it makes me drowsy....even the non-drowsy one. I've been sick all weekend....but I think I'm getting better since I dont have a itchy throat anymore. The school nurse at my job did a quick check up and said it's more than likely allegies. I've never had allegies and I'm 24. The nurse said that some people tend to get them as they get older. I just cant get rid of the itchy eyes, runny nose and sneezing. Medicines? Home Remedies? Advice?

    • ANSWER:
      Personally I've taken half doses of Benadryl or Tylanol sinus and gotten relief without drowsiness. Zyrtec is a drug that just went over the counter. It made me a bit drowsy the first time I took it, but my body got used to it.

      I tend to take 500mg of C and OJ in the am and deal with minor seasonal allergies.

  46. QUESTION:
    Can you use Wallgreen's brand Aloe Vera GEL on pink eye? and more red eye questions?!?
    first off, i beleive i have pink eye. i have really bad spring time allergies that just started the other day. i rub-rub-rubed at my itchy eyes and i think i may have gotten pink eye from getting bacteria into my eyes from all the rub-rub-rubbing.i have been reading about some home remedies, and alot of people perscribe soft contact lens solution. but it says, right on the box AND the bottle, that you're not supposed to put it directly on your eye.

    and so i was stupid-stupid-stupid and went bumming around in my left eye with a q-tip and i realized that the inide of my bottom eyelid was bunched up and red and looked kind of out of place, like it got pulled up. it was alot different compared to my right eye, and i know maybe it was just irritation becasue my left eye was all red from the rubbing and my right eye wasn't, becasue the itching from the allergies (and apperently, now red eye, too) comes and goes between eyes, blah blah blah......

    so my right eye was clear and my left eye was red and the inside lining of my left bottom eyelid, you know, where you pull down your bottom eyelid to put on eyeliner? look there and my eye and the lining were all red, and the linging that connects the eye to the lid was bunched up and swollen looking. is that just becasue i was rubbing at my eye, and i irritated it?
    i have a tendency to overreact about things, but it really really freaked me out becasue i'd never seen that before like that in my eye.

    to the next part...

    i think i now have pink eye from rubbing and gotten bacteria in my eye. i was looking online at some home remedies, and some people have suggested using aloe vera. i have aloe very gel in my closet for sunburn, the green cooling aloe vera gel from wallgreens. is it safe it put a tiny bit on a q-tip and gently rub it on the bottom eye lid?

  49. QUESTION:
    Hay fever and itching hives!?
    Yesterday, I went for a walk with my brother, and during the walk we had to pass through some fields which was full of knee high grass stalks, most of them with their seeds on show. Being an utter idiot, I thought that my hay fever could stand it - how wrong I was!

    When I got home I had a hay fever attack of streaming, itchy eyes, runny nose, and as a I was stupid enough to be wearing little sandals and three-quarter length trousers, my lower legs, ankles and feet all came up in hives.
    I have taken anti-histamine, put ice on my legs, etc etc, but it is now a day later and the hives on my legs are KILLING me! They're still angry and red and raised, and I can't stop scratching them. My other hay fever symptoms are still here but they aren't as bad anymore.

    Please, please, give me some idea of what to do! I have had these kind of reactions before but never this bad and they had always subsided by now. Is there any sort of home remedies which I can use? I'm willing to try anything right now.
    Thankyou in advance! x

    • ANSWER:
      I found that if you just splash cold water over you legs and feet then letting it dry by its self stops the hives from itching so much.

      hope it helps.

      p.s you should go to your doctor and see about getting a stronger anti-histamine.
