Natural Ways to Dissolve Fibroids - Shrink Fibroids Naturally
There are natural ways to dissolve fibroids by using a combination of different treatments. However, this information is not readily available from conventional medical doctors as no two treatments are exactly the same and will depend on your own individual circumstances. In addition, as surgery or drug treatment is not involved, you cannot simply walk out if your doctor's office with a prescription or hospital appointment!

When I first began to suffer from bloating, heavy periods and a multitude of other symptoms, I had no idea I had fibroids. The first time I complained to my doctor about my increasing waistline, he told me it was fat! It was only when I had more severe symptoms such as breathlessness and anemia that I was given a diagnosis of fibroids. Not just any fibroids though, I had fibroids which meant that my uterus was the same size as a seven month pregnancy.

After numerous scans, I was advised to have a hysterectomy due to the size of the fibroids-one was the size of a melon and several were the size of oranges. I asked if there was a natural way to dissolve fibroids but my doctor was totally disinterested and told me to return for drug treatment to shrink the fibroids in a couple of months. My surgery was scheduled for 3 months or so after this, depending on how well they responded.

I did not want to lose my uterus. Nor did I want to have hormone treatment which would apparently give me menopausal symptoms, including a real risk of osteoporosis. I therefore spent hours and hours researching on the internet for natural ways to dissolve fibroids.
There is no one cause of fibroids and they are not caused by any one factor but rather by a combination of factors which subtly interact within a woman's body, causing fibroids to grow. This means that any successful natural treatment needs to have a multi-faceted approach which takes into account what is likely to have caused the fibroids in her particular case.

It has been proven that one common cause of fibroids is an excess of estrogen. Now that is not to say that all women with more estrogen than is normal will have fibroids, but it is more <i>likely</i> if she is predisposed due to other factors. Controlling estrogen can therefore often begin to shrink and dissolve fibroids, making them smaller in some women. In addition, certain pesticides and pollutants can mimic estrogen in both male and female bodies so reducing this can also help. A good liver detox has been shown to reduce the build up of these toxins in the liver, thus helping contribute towards shrinking fibroids.

Other natural ways to dissolve fibroids include ensuring you maintain a healthy weight as excess estrogen is stored within fat cells and fibroids are more common in overweight women. It has been shown that when an overweight woman with fibroids loses weight, her fibroids naturally shrink.

Another way to shrink fibroids naturally includes eating foods which are anti-inflammatory, such as oats, hops, rosemary and cumin.

If you are prepared to spend a little time and effort, then natural ways to dissolve fibroids could be the answer. However, if you are the type of person who just wants a quick-fix solution, then I would rather tell you now that this method will not work. I had to persevere with the treatment for a few weeks before I saw significant results, although I did notice a slight difference within a few short days-suffice to say that I did not go ahead with my surgery and I am still completely free of the symptoms of fibroids. The reason that this method works is, I think, because it tackles all the different possible causes of fibroids and allows you to use an approach which covers all possibilities. I actually found it very interesting and it was a bit like going on a journey! In fact I have never been as healthy as I am now. If you would like to see the 7 Step, tried-and-tested method which will teach you natural ways to dissolve fibroids which has worked successfully for many thousands of women worldwide, you can find further details at Shrink Fibroids Naturally To learn all about natural remedies to shrink fibroids plus the different conventional and fibroids natural treatment options, please visit Types Of Fibroids

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    What are some good natural remedies books and websites?
    I want to find websites, books and message boards on how to cure certain health problems using natural methods. List as much as you can find. Thanks

    • ANSWER:
      From an herbal perspective, here's a few books I rely on for simple (and complex) remedies for pretty much most ailments.

      David Hoffmann "The complete illustrated Holistic Herbal" Gives info on each herb, how to make decoctions, salves etc. But the best is the illness section: He gives formulas for specific conditions. A very well-respected herbalist in his field.

      Anything by Rosemary Gladstar (one of the founders of modern western herbalism). You may be interested in "Rosemary Gladstar's Family Herbal: A Guide to Living Life with Energy" also has herbal info but it's really about remedies/formulas for everyday stuff that comes up.

      The Family Herbal by Barbara and Peter Theiss.

      The only message board I can think of is...
      http://curezone.com/forums/
      But not sure how 'natural' it is for you

  3. QUESTION:
    Why are people so down on the Natural Remedies book just because the author(Kevin Trudeau) was a felon?
    Yeah, so he was a felon.. so what? The stuff in his books arent things he made up. In fact, if you pick up one of his books he sites the sources (which are real doctors from all over the world) who believe these treatments. In america we have all been brainwashed to believe that only the "medical" doctors can help us with all their drugs.. but thats crap. I have been seeing an herbal medicine doctor for 11 years. For 16 years I suffered from migraines. He gave me a little bottle of some herb (it was 11 years ago, I dont remember what) and I haven't had one since. I read thru trudeaus book and havent found anything I couldn't find research to back up. People who are in denial that natural cures work have been brainwashed by society. They may take longer to work, but that's because they actually work, they don't mask the symptom. Think about it, you take asprin for a headache..why? Is an asprin deficiency causing it? You mask the symptom, but never cure the cause.
    From what I gathered what the book said was that viruses could be cured. And before anyone says it, it also says that the sun doesn't cause skin cancer. And this has been proven over and over. All the crap we put in our bodies causes skin cancer. Thats why people who live in warm climates, out in the sun, in other countries don't get it nearly as often. They don't stop at McDonalds every day. They eat healthy and that keeps their bodies healthy, which keeps their skin cells healthy.

    • ANSWER:
      I agree North Americans in general are eating horribly, not exercising enough, overweight, and using too many unneeded Rx meds. However, no one needs a book to tell us that.

      Fact is, while this book may work for people who have "benign" (non life-threatening) conditions like headaches, rashes, or are otherwise healthy, there is nothing here that can cure all the diseases he claims he can.

      Most people with serious diseses KNOW they may or will die without treatment, so why would they take the risk? I know if I had breast cancer I would rather have the tumour removed as opposed to taking an unproven herb for months in hopes that it *may* have any effect.

      In fact, people with serious diseases DID die prior to modern medicine. Surgery, antibiotics, medication, and vaccines have saved many lives. Perhaps your own parents were spared from polio due to modern medicine. Perhaps antibiotics have saved you from a deadly infection.

      I think the people who are REALLY brainwashed are the people who don't see ANY of the good in Western Medicine and think that a 0/vial unproven natural "remedy" or book will cure all of society's diseases.

      P.S. That guy has NO understanding about health, medicine, or science.

      Viruses constantly mutate and spread like wild fire. If we could even cure 1 strain, 500 new mutations would reproduce themselves within the hour.

      Second, people who live in "hot climates" near the equator get tons of sun exposure, yes, BUT THEY TEND TO HAVE MUCH DARKER SKIN!!!! Although people with dark skin can get skin cancer, the risk is much higher in the light skinned. I'm sure the cases of skin cancer in white people in that same area are quite high, it's just that they make up a small portion of the population.

      We all need to live healthy and take care of ourselves. There is a time and place for natural preventative medicine. But someone unqualified like Trudeau should not be falsely claiming he has conqured complex diseases in his propaganda book.

      Because he is uneducated and probably KNOWS he is wrong or misguided, he is out to scam the public. His target audience isn't healthy people, it's the desperately sick and dying people looking for a miracle.

  4. QUESTION:
    What natural remedies do you have for neck pain?
    Also can you recommend any good natural health books for different remedies?

    • ANSWER:
      Neck pain, often caused by poor posture, strenuous activities, and emotional stress, can be relieved by relaxation exercises and the warmth of essential oils.

      Pain in the neck and upper back are often caused by poor posture, bad sleeping positions, and prolonged exposure to strenuous routinely activities. Carrying heavy loads, as well as emotional stress and tension can also cause the involuntary cramping of neck and shoulder muscles.

      Fortunately, natural remedies like relaxation and stretching techniques, application of essential oils, heat therapies, and massage, can help relieve neck pain. Exercises can also strengthen muscles and relieve a sore neck.

      Essential Oils

      Oils of medicinal herbs have been used to warm and relieve sore muscles by promoting proper blood circulation. Blend equal amounts of peppermint oil and sweet almond oil and massage over the sore areas of your neck.

      You can substitute the peppermint oil with rosemary oil or a mixture of angelica oil, lemon-balm oil, and sage oil. Instead of sweet almond oil as a base oil, you can use jojoba or avocado oil. To enhance the soothing effect of the essential oils, you can wrap the warmth in with a scarf or neckerchief.

      Exercises

      Lean your head to the right, stretching the muscles on the left side of the neck. Very slowly roll your head forward to stretch the muscles of the nape. Continue to roll slowly towards the left to stretch the muscles on the right side of the neck.

      Clasp your hands behind your head; gently and slowly twist your torso to the left and to the right. This will stretch the muscles of the neck, upper shoulders, and upper back to relieve tension and cramps.

      Lift your shoulders alternately, holding the pose for a few seconds before releasing.

  5. QUESTION:
    what is a good book with natural remedies for womens health?
    i want to detox, cleanse, and get my uterus in shape. i dont have a period right now and im looking for natural fixes. what are some great books,websites, or google search keywords?

    • ANSWER:
      The best way to detox and cleanse your system is with natural foods. Try a raw food diet for a week or two- (fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, fresh juices, filtered water) your body will cleanse itself and balance your hormones naturally. (My husband advises this diet for women trying to conceive- and it works the vast majority of the time.)

      The two books I would highly recommend are:
      Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom by Christiane Northrup
      Prescription for Nutritional Healing by Balch & Balch

  8. QUESTION:
    does anyone know any websites for natural remedies for illnesses vaccines are for?
    I've done my homework on vaccines. I believe the benefit is not worth the risk, and I believe the earth is God's pharmacy. I'm fascinated with homeopathic stuff. I've got a few really good books on nutritional healing and natural remedies. I treat as much of my children's ailments at home with herbs and other Natural remedies. I was just wondering if anyone, happened to know of any good sites for the "biggies". thanks.
    autism is only 1 of the thoudands of side effects there are. SIDS, "shaken baby syndrome", to name a few..

    the question u need to ask yourself is, am I going to blindly accept what the docters tell me, or do my own reserch
    its a huge conflict of interest for the doctors to reserch, they blindly accept what the CDC tells them.
    did u know theres aborted fetus tissue in some vaccines,did u know the bird flu virus is in some vaccines,did u know the vaccines that mercury was removed from, now have aluminum and formaldahyde instead????

    I DO KNOW THE TRUTH, IT IS OUT THERE, LOOK FOR YOURSELF!!

    • ANSWER:
      Some of the people on http://www.mothering.com/discussions Health and Healing board and Vaccinations board are very knowledgable about treating diseases for which there are vaccines. A biggie on that board is sodium ascorbate, abbreviated as SA. It is a buffered, powdered form of vitamin C, and it is awesome for pertussis. Vitamin A supplementation is important for measles. Drinking plenty of water, gettting rest, and avoiding Tylenol at all costs works well for everything. Making sure that wounds bleed is a good way to avoid tetanus. Washing non-bleeding wounds with hydrogen peroxide gets oxygen inside the wound, which kills possible tetanus. Diphtheria is treated with antibiotics. Hib is treated with antibiotics. Hepatitis A is often symptomless in children, as is rubella.

      The odds are that the only diseases you will notice your children getting are chickenpox and pertussis. My oldest child is 5 years old, and that's all she's gotten. We had to search hard for chickenpox.

    • ANSWER:
      I have Graves Disease too. I've been on PTU for around three years. My T3 T4 TSH numbers are ok, but I've had a few bouts of atrial fibrillation. These lasted for 24-48 hours then stopped. I wish I could help, but I'm looking for a solution too. I don't like the idea of radioactive iodine...so I'm hoping that long-term anti thyroid drugs will give the thyroid a chance to burn itself out. The only thing I can suggest is to eat lots of green leafy vegetables and soy.....they can have an impact on the thyroid hormone production. Best wishes.

  14. QUESTION:
    Do you agree with Kevin Trudeau, supporter of natural remedies in curing diseases?
    In his book, "The Natural Cures they don't want you to know about", he exposed natural remedies in preventing and curing many diseases. He claimed that natural remedies are so effective and cheap that FTC doesn't allow our medical community to utlize these methods. After all, drugs companies are publicly traded companies, and they are all about making profits.
    Many cancer patients who have used natural supplements with chemotherapy have had higher chance of survival rate. However, he claims that our medical system still do not recommend using these natural methods as they will cut down main profits.

    • ANSWER:
      Yes, I have read both of his books and do agree with him on much of the materials contained in those publications.I personally have little use for conventional medicine and have through my own personal experiences seen the benefits of alternative treatments. I do recommend his books to many people as they not only contain a wealth of useful information but are easy to understand and written in a compelling style. I have heard a few disparaging remarks about the motives of Mr Trudeau and frankly I could care less about that. As far as I am concerned he has reached many people that would not not normally be open to this type of information and in this way made an impact that few others have achieved. Making a difference to this" hard to get at group" is the beginning of more widespread acceptance of the health information that's in this book and that is sorely needed in this country and around the world.

  20. QUESTION:
    Herbal and natural remedies that help with pregnancy and labor?
    I am also looking for books or websites on the subject.

    • ANSWER:
      Alternative medicine a.k.a homeopathy.

      Multiple head homeopathic remedies are:

      Arnica: This remedy is often indicated for relief of soreness that comes from physical exertion and muscle strain. It is also useful for soreness after labor and delivery, and for hemorrhoids that follow childbirth.

      Calcarea phosphorica: This remedy can help to strengthen a woman who tends toward easy tiredness, poor digestion, cold hands and feet, and poor absorption of nutrients. Some women who need this remedy find only “junk food” appealing during pregnancy, or have cravings for smoked and salty food. A history of easy tooth decay and aching bones and joints can also suggest a need for this remedy. A person who needs Calc phos is often irritable because of tiredness, and may long for travel or a change of circumstances.

      Caulophyllum: This remedy may be helpful to women with weak muscle tone in the uterus. A history of irregular periods, slow and difficult labor with previous deliveries, or weakness of the cervix may bring this remedy to mind. The woman may feel erratic pains like sticking needles, or episodes of contracting pain. She typically feels nervous, shaky, and trembling (sometimes irritable, as well).

      Carbo vegetabilis: This remedy can be helpful to a woman who feels weak and faint during pregnancy, with poor circulation, a general feeling of coldness, and a craving for fresh or moving air. She may also have frequent digestive upsets with burning pain and a tendency to belch. A woman who is deeply tired from overwork, many pregnancies close together, or a previous illness may regain some strength with Carbo vegetabilis.

      Cimicifuga (also called Actaea racemosa): This remedy can be helpful to women who are nervous and talkative, with a tendency to feel fearful and gloomy during pregnancy. They may become overagitated and fear a miscarriage — sometimes having pains that feel like labor pains too early, or pains that shoot from hip to hip and down the thighs.

      Ferrum metallicum: A woman who has a sturdy build, but looks very pale and weary—flushing red from any exertion or emotion—may respond to this remedy. Ferrum is often helpful in correcting anemic tendencies.

      Ferrum phosphoricum: This remedy can be helpful for nervous, sensitive women who often feel weak or tired, with easy flushing of the face and a tendency toward anemia. A woman who needs this remedy often has a slender build and may develop frequent neck and shoulder stiffness.

      Nux vomica: This remedy may be useful for indigestion, heartburn, stomach pain, and constipation during pregnancy. A woman needs this remedy usually is impatient, irritable, and chilly.

      Pulsatilla: This remedy is often helpful at times of strong hormonal changes, especially to women who are moody and emotional, and want a lot of affection and attention. They often crave desserts or butter and may overeat, which can lead to indigestion and nausea, or excessive weight-gain. Pregnant women who need this remedy feel uncomfortable in hot weather and in stuffy rooms, improving from gentle exercise in open air.

      Sepia: Women who are tired, dragged out, and irritable during pregnancy (feeling overburdened by demands of family members, or with little enthusiasm for the pregnancy) may benefit from this remedy. Poor circulation, nausea, constipation, a tendency toward accidental urine loss, and a feeling of sagging or weakness in the pelvic floor, and an energy-boost from exercise are other indications for Sepia.

      Homeopathy Dosage Directions

      Select the remedy that most closely matches the symptoms. In conditions where self-treatment is appropriate, unless otherwise directed by a physician, a lower potency (6X, 6C, 12X, 12C, 30X, or 30C) should be used. In addition, instructions for use are usually printed on the label.

      Many homeopathic physicians suggest that remedies be used as follows: Take one dose and wait for a response. If improvement is seen, continue to wait and let the remedy work. If improvement lags significantly or has clearly stopped, another dose may be taken. The frequency of dosage varies with the condition and the individual. Sometimes a dose may be required several times an hour; other times a dose may be indicated several times a day; and in some situations, one dose per day (or less) can be sufficient.

      If no response is seen within a reasonable amount of time, select a different remedy.

  21. QUESTION:
    I have a tendency to suffer from Seasonal Affected Disorder. Natural remedies?
    I can already feel the SAD depression feelings coming on. It happens to me almost every winter. I don't like being on Anti-Depressants and can usually manage my depression with exercise, eating healthfully, etc.

    But, do any of you have any personal ways of coping with it?
    Also, can you recommend any books???

    • ANSWER:
      Daily exposure to sunlight, or bright light, plus vitamin D3 (cod liver oil) and St. John's wort is effective for most people (tolerance doesn't develop to it, and the few side effects don't occur often, and even then are normally not severe).
      It doesn't cause sleeping problems, or weight change, but usually takes at least 2, and generally 4 - 6 weeks to become effective, but can work quicker than antidepressants, sometimes. A recent, independent German double blind study showed it to be as effective as Sertraline (marketed in the USA as Zoloft: a commonly prescribed antidepressant) in cases of major depression, with far fewer side effects, and those were generally better tolerated, with a lower rate of discontinuation. Unlike antidepressants, where sexual dysfunction is a common side effect, it happens much more rarely with St. John's wort (I have noticed no effect in this area).

      Remember back to a time when life was full of promise, or a day when you felt particularly good, or possibly excited from a good result. Emotional states are associated with memories, and if it isn't major depression, this method can help. A multidimensional approach to treating depression without medication follows. All except for no. (7.) are safe to use with medication, but not St. John's wort, because of interactions, and it's sensible to check out anything else first with your doctor.

      (1.) Take 4 Omega 3 fish oil supplements, daily: (certified free of mercury) it is best if consumed with an antioxidant, such as an orange, or grapefruit, or their FRESHLY SQUEEZED juice. Only 2 need ne taken, when using cod liver oil. If vitamin E is added, it should be certified as being 100% from natural sources, or it may be synthetic: avoid it. Also take a vitamin B complex which is certified as being 100% of natural origin; a deficiency in vitamin B9 (folic acid, or folate) is known to cause depression. Around 30% - 40% of depressed people have low vitamin B12 levels. Depressed females using the contraceptive pill may benefit from vitamin B6 supplements. ~~~ (2.) Work up slowly to at least 20 minutes minutes of exercise, daily, or 30 - 60 mns, 5 times weekly. Too much exercise can cause stress, which isn't wanted when dealing with depression. ~~~ (3.) Occupational therapy (keeping busy allows little time for unproductive introspection, and keeps mental activity out of less desirable areas of the brain).

      (4.) Use daily, a relaxation method* and/or yoga*, and/or Tai Chi. ~~~ (5.) Initially, at least, some form of counselling, preferably either Cognitive Behavio(u)ral Therapy, or Rational Emotive Behavio(u)ral Therapy. ~~~ (6.) Maintain a mood chart, and daily activities schedule. ~~~ (7.) As options, if desired, either a known, effective herbal remedy, such as St. John's wort, (get a German variety, if possible; local ones may vary in effectiveness) or supplements, such as SAMe, or Inositol (from vitamin and health food stores, some supermarkets, or mail order: view section 55).

      If 5HTP is used to boost serotonin levels, (which are low in depressed people) it is best taken with a high carbohydrate, minimal protein meal, like pasta, with tomato & basil, and avoid protein for 90 minutes, before, and after, to maximise the amount crossing the blood/brain barrier. Also, 80% of people in the Western world have low magnesium levels, and these are known to cause depression & anxiety. Try the magnesium supplement types shown in http://www.real-depression-help.com/ Some of these will be available in pharmacies, or supermarkets. Low levels of calcium, and potassium can also cause depression. Have your blood tested, and correct any deficiencies, preferably through improved nutrition.

      An improvement can be noticed in as little as a week, if a deficiency is the cause. Also, iodised salt is much preferable to regular salt (one of the treatments in books on depression is iodine drops). Try to imagine, as vividly as possible, a time in the not too distant future, when you have overcome this temporary setback, and things are much better. *View section 2, on the first 3 pages, and also pages R, C, I, and section 11, at http://www.ezy-build.net.nz/~shaneris and see the pages on S.A.D. If you get the lights, minimise use of cod liver oil, as too much vitamin D3 is unhealthy: see http://www.mercola.com SEARCHBAR : "Seasonal Affective Disorder". FORGET the sunscreen in the winter months: it is the action of ultraviolet on exposed skin, which causes vitamin D3 formation!

  22. QUESTION:
    Is there a "natural" remedy to keep pets (dogs) from chewing up furniture, books, shoes, etc.?
    We have a 9 month old German Shephard puppy who when alone (or at night when we are asleep) who will chew up most anything. She likes especially things that have puffy cotton insides.

    • ANSWER:
      She's a German Shepherd, it's prey drive. Get her some stuffed animals she CAN chew up, when you catch her chewing on items she is not allowed to, just tell her no, and hand her a toy, simple and effective. So, you will still have a cotton mess, I've learned to deal with it, I'm constantly picking up fuzz balls.

      EDIT: If you go with crate training, which is good to do for any dog, do so gradually, lead her in the crate with a command, and a treat, leave her in there for 10-20 minutes at a time, a few times a day till she adjusts. German Shepherds also don't fully mature till around two years old, I've noticed very high energy so keep her well entertained. I just brought in a new GSD male puppy, he's doing good so far about the chewing.

  23. QUESTION:
    what are natural remedies I can do RIGHT NOW to ease depression?
    maybe im just bored/tired but I feel really emotionally depressed to the point nothing anyone tells me to do will work , like saying, go take a walk, go watch tv, go read a book etc etc... I dont WANT to... I mean I cant.... im unmotivated and anxious at the same time, what should I do?
    I have some fish oil here maybe I should take that.......but lately its worse and I feel like this everyday, and have obsessive thoughts like I cant stop coloring my hair all different colors.
    thanks guys but this is funny all i just read first 3 n all said exercise when thats exactly what i have been doing everyday more than ever till i sweat to death n cant go anymore.... yet my depression is worse........

    • ANSWER:
      Exercise and meditation in the Sun. Take it or leave it. Meditation clears your mind and opens it to new thoughts and answers.

  24. QUESTION:
    Please tell me natural remedies for the prevention of kidney stones and the pain they cause.?
    I have referrenced the book "presciption for nutritional healing" second edition and want to know if there is anything else I can include. I can't go through this pain again and have started drinking more water.

    • ANSWER:
      Water is your best bet. Sad but true *burp*

      When I had mine last year I did a bunch of research. I joined a couple of kidney stone Yahoo groups. I also came across one or two "miracle" products which were thrashed in those same groups.

      I also looked into herbs. While it's possible that there are some which could be of use, it's not a sure thing.

      Other suggestions had to do with calcium and I think magnesium....

      I asked my urologist about what I had read and he just laughed. He didn't say those things would be useless, but his observations of human nature have led him to believe that people just don't stick with things. So herbs might be good, changing the diet might be good, etc. But the average person is going to keep that up for a few months then relapse.

      But drinking more water is easier to stick with.

      The diets I refer to depend on the type of stone. There are low oxalate diets. From what I read, death might be preferable.

      If you're interested, I'd be happy to send you a copy of the document I created compiling all the info I dug up. It's much too long to post here, and using the Answers mail interface, which is limited to 1,000 or so characters, would require 10 emails.

  25. QUESTION:
    Natural remedies overly hyped?
    I'm getting tired of seeing books claiming to have natural or herbal treatments for every illness on the planet, while all modern medicine is evil. What's worse is that people will blindly follow any advice as long as someone tells them it's natural! No scientific support needed! Just out of curiosity, does anyone out there claim they have a "natural" cure for a burst appendix, an acute heart attack, and a stroke in progress?
    Here's another one: anyone know what herbal remedy will help a premature baby, born at 26 weeks, to breathe?
    straycat: actually, physicians' annual dues fund the college of physicians and surgeons.

    yutu34: Chinese medicine is great, when prepared by grandma back in the village, not in a pill from a bottle.

    • ANSWER:
      I'm wondering why your world view can't include both. I mean people blindly trust lots of things (including doctors, priests, naturapaths etc, the list goes on). Surely the outcome is the important thing.

      The medical profession for many many years refuted that diet had anything to do with health and yet now they bombard us with this information.

      Chinese medicine is considered 'alternative' and yet it is the result of 5000 years research and development.

      Both Western, Eastern and alternative approaches are valid in different circumstances. Different strokes for different blokes.

      Of course premmy babies need western medical intervention.

      Come on mate, stop seeing the world and people in black and white, let some light and shade into your life..

  29. QUESTION:
    Is Kevin Trudeau, the author of 'Natural Cures they don't want you to know about', a scam artist?
    I saw part of an infomercial with Trudeau. He claims that he knows natural remedies for many illnesses, from depression to cancer, which he has apparently listed in one of his books. But can this man be trusted?

    I have high blood pressure, for example, among other things. I went to look at the natural remedy in one of his books, and it said things such as the following:

    1. Raw extra virgin coconut oil
    2. Flax and flax seed oil
    3. Vitamin E
    4. Natural sunlight

    And so forth.

    Is this a bunch of baloney, or is it accurate? How can I know that this man can be trusted?

    Has anyone read his books, or does anyone have hardcore, factual information about his claims?

    • ANSWER:
      Like many alternative medicine advocates, Trudeau has many valid points hidden underneath a lot of bull sh*t. He takes very useful recommendations and buries them in a huge conspiracy theory.

      From what I have been able to determine, he basically entices you with potentially wonderful cures, but, hey, you have to sign up for his website to learn the details because "Big Brother" government is trying to keep the truth from you.

      What I would say to you is take the recommendations he makes with a grain of salt. Give them a try if you have the financial wherewithal to do it, but realize it is an experiment. What works for some people MIGHT NOT WORK FOR YOU. It's a "buyer beware" situation. Learn the pros and cons and make your decision based on that information.

  31. QUESTION:
    Is there a natural remedy to prevent deep vein thrombosis in the legs?
    My friend (she is just 27 years old) recently had a deep vein thrombosis. The doctors suspected that the anti baby pill may have caused it. I'm wondering if there are natural remedies/cures how to prevent something like this. Right now she has to take very strong medications (blood thinners), but she doesn't want to take them for a prolonged period of time.

  32. QUESTION:
    Natural Remedies for Anxiety/Panic?
    I'm looking for natural remedies for anxiety/panic attacks. Its for a friend, drugs are NOT an option. I stopped by the health food store today, but there were so many options. I want to recommend something effective. I have heard good things about Rescue Remedy, and so bought some of that. Has anyone had good results with this or anything else? She has panic attacks related to severe social anxiety. Also, if anyone knows of a good book or website where I could learn more about panic remedies, that would be much appreciated. Thanks! -Neb

    • ANSWER:
      Besides "social drinking" to cure "social anxiety". I have found the only thing that really helps is taking deep breaths and using "awareness" excersises to keep yourself in the present. Also, vanilla as a scent (whether worn as an essential oil on the wrists or a perfume spray), and coconut are very relaxing scents that can help in situations where just a whiff here and there of the scent can help calm the nerves down.
      hope this helps :) tell your friend to hang in there and look around for a good CGB (cognitive behavioral therapist) who can help eliminate alot of these issues w/ out drugs or anything else.

  33. QUESTION:
    Is there any natural/old school remedies for Diverticulitis?
    My grandmother has this and it has come back for the 2nd time and she wants to make sure she has tryed everything before she has to make a BIG choice. (surgery) she thinks yogurt will help but she wants to know if there is anything else. she found the yogurt idea in a old medical book. i tryed to tell her that the book might be a little out-dated but you know the elderly!

    • ANSWER:
      Aloe Vera Juice had been known to stop colon abnormalities and even reverse cancer. It's excellent for diverticulitis.

      A shot glass full 2 x a day - keep in the fridge.

      - it's not the yogurt that helps - it's the probiotics in the yogurt - she can get the same thing by taking probiotics (acidophilus is one of them). If you buy some make sure it's the refrigerated kind - probiotics shld always be refrigerated.

      Both of these items can be purchased at the health food store.

    How well does Interferon works for people with Hep C versus people who are choosing "natural" remedies?
    I am looking for testimonials from people not associated with the sale of a book or the sale of ingrediants of the "cure". It would seem to me natural and herbal medicines have huge validity but I am looking for people talking about that in terms of their own experience and success. I can't invest any effort in people with names like "Mary W of Denver" says xxxxxxxxx. and the testimonial is what seems to be a sales pitch and is located on a web site that is promoting a book. There has to be real people with real experience somewhere.

    • ANSWER:
      U can find stories from plenty of people who actually have tried Interferon... believe me, they r real people with real experience.

  36. QUESTION:
    Can you give me an all natural remedy for eczema?
    Im really good at making remedies... recently a girl has come to me and asked for me to make her something for eczema... my books and referances have never failed me until now.. i cant find anything for it anywhere. help please

    • ANSWER:
      Calendula.

      I had really bad eczema across my nose and cheeks, i used a organic calendula based cream from a health food store and later got one that also had st johns wort in it.

      It did wonders, after being told by doctors i would have it forever i was amazed at how well it worked.

      Ive also got calendula tea now as well that ive kept up drinking to try and beat it for good.

      most of what people have already mentioned sounds good, i think the key is good oil, to keep moisture in your skin. Nuts and seeds are a great source of oil.

      Also cleaning your system so your sweat isn't continually irritating the condition further. Maybe a detox could be beneficial and looking at trying to restore your alkaline/acid balance could also be very helpfull.

  37. QUESTION:
    i saw a show on tv last sunday (06/24/07) about natural remedies...i wanted to know the name of the book?
    the tv host was on celebrity fit club and the two authors were sisters and one of their last names was allen.

    • ANSWER:
      I put a watch on your question because I wanted to know about this book too just because you are so enthusiastic about it. I tried some different searches but no luck. You might try rephrasing your question to get the attention of someone who watched the show. ( I even checked out the show episode guide on TV.com but they do not mention guest spots). So try a lead question like...."Who watched Celebrity Fit Club last Sunday...I need the name of the herbal remedy book...any clue you can give will be appreciated like book tittle or author(s),website to check, etc."

    Does anyone know of good homeotherapy books or websites?

Instead of going straight for OTC Medicine, I want to learn more about natural healing. My youngest is almost one year old and I don't want to give her Tylenol every time she has a cough or cold.

    • ANSWER:
      First of all Congrats on making the right choice, you will get a lot of downright stupid answers about Homeopathy from all quarters. Children respond to Homeopathic remedies so well you will be amazed but the non believers will stick to their old outdated ways and answers for the same reason they cannot accept anything new and better then what they have been practicing. Allopathy is the old school of medicine, Homeopathy is the New School of smart medicine which cures without side effects and complications and it seem that is what are Pharma Industry does not wants to happen hence theu oppose Homeopathy.
      I would suggest you use BIO COMBINATION 11 for fever in children and adults alike and BIO COMBINATION 6 for Cough, Cold, and Catarrh. You can visit these sites for Homeopathic references and remedies :-

  43. QUESTION:
    Trouble focusing on anything - natural remedies?
    I was once diagnosed with ADD, then with Asperger's, and at one point I decided that both of these diagnoses were the popular diagnoses at the time, according to what I've heard and read, so, for the most part I now choose to ignore them both, despite evidence that I may in fact have AS. There'll always be something doctors can pin on anyone and say they need to buy meds for it.

    But in my case, I'm a poor college student whose budget goes to books and food, and in my own case, I'd rather toss 0 for a year's membership at a gym than the same dough for a couple months' supply of whatever pills doc Smith has to push.

    Either way, I have trouble focusing on anything - I can't sit down and read a book for more than 20 minutes to save my life. If a movie's over 2 hours long, I've taken 3 bathroom breaks and am sipping on my fourth 42-ounce refill while I twiddle my thumbs. Studying for anything, for me, is torture - long lectures, my bane.

    Are there any 'natural' solutions for me?
    Experience:
    Doctors push pills. Most of my family is in medicine. A relative of mine, for example, denounced one of the products I had been put on (Provigil), though he himself sold it in several places.

    I'm not looking for quack alternative medicines, I don't need someone to tell me to detox my colon, burn incense, smoke grass, pray, and flog myself, but I'll take some advice as far as altering my diet goes, or particular forms of exercise, as long as it doesn't involve sprinkling magic powder in my orange juice.
    I might try the ginkgo bilboa. But I simply can't afford to visit psychiatrists, or try a handful of drugs at apiece each month.

    • ANSWER:
      Doc Smith isn't "pushing" pills...you say that as if he' a street drug pusher making a profit from the pills he's got you addicted to. Straw man ad homine argument. Uncalled for doctor bashing.
      Pharmaceutical companies are guilty of creating demand for their products, and half the time doctors try to explain to people why they DON"T need that drug the TV ad said to 'talk to your doctor about.."

      So "you decided" the diagnosis was wrong and trendy "despite evidence". Well, where did you do YOUR medical training to make such an important decision?

      ADHD and AS are both real conditions....and you are proof. Deal with it. There are no "natural" treatments clinically proven effective. Some types of behaviour therapy are effective. That also costs money. I'm sorry you don't have enough money, and you live in the richest country in the world that doesn't think looking after its citizens health is more important than manufacturing weapons.

      The medications when used properly are safe, effective, and have made a huge difference in the lives of millions of kids and adults. Yes they have been overprescribed to kids that are probably not ADD but just 'rambunctious' because overworked and harried schoolteachers and parents put pressure on doctors to 'do something' about little Johnny who'd driving them crazy.

      Drinking a lot of water is potentially dangerous, and excessive thirst and urination may be symptoms of diabetes.

      Do yourself a favour, see a doctor to make sure there is nothing else going on, and get back on some medication.

  45. QUESTION:
    My 9 year old won't go to sleep at night - natural remedies?
    My daughter who is 9 has never been a great sleeper.
    Over the last two months however she has taken it to a new level. She has been extremely difficult and has been keeping the entire family up until late at night. She almost talks herself into the fact that she wont be able to sleep and is so overtired at the moment that her behaviour is way out of control. She starts crying in bed and then it turns into a full on frenzy tantrum like that of a two year old. This is really disruptive to the rest of the family and obviously to her as well. I have booked an appointment to see someone but can't get in for the next few weeks. I have tried a night light, music, meditation etc and I am not sure what else I can do. She wants to sleep in our bed but when we have let her she will not go to sleep until one of us goes to bed. For the record she is like an angel at school and at all after school activities. We are exhausted!
    Does anyone know of any natural remedies or other suggestions that may help? Thanks

    • ANSWER:
      Try starting with Kevin Tredeau's" Nature Cures They Do Not Want You to Know About." i started with this book and then moved on to doing more internet research.

  49. QUESTION:
    Has anyone read Kevin Trudeau's Natural Cures book?
    What are you're opinions? I've been doing research on both sides before completely crediting one or another and found more evidence suggesting Kevin Trudeau's book to prove true. Natural Remedies in my own past experience have worked quickly and effectively more-so than what my doctors have prescribed me, I was curious what other people thought and experienced on their own and/or with reading this book
    i think its interesting people refuse to look past "kevin trudeau" instead of further look into "natural remedies" ... when doing research i found plenty of things against Trudeau, and I decided this is where the biased is coming from. More-so I did research on the FDA itself and some of the claims made by Trudeau as well as remedies he lists and found those to be true.

    For ex; Trudeau doesn't mention(or i haven't yet read) about Reiki(energy healing), which is natural and proven to help fight cancer better than anything the doctors have done, yet not many people know about numerous Reiki clinics, and I personally know someone who is certified to perform Reiki.

    Though I can understand why one would say "its a waste of money- hes the one out to make money" because I somewhat agree, but I don't discredit all of what he says; especially because of the numerous books on the market written by specialist, doctors, and people who weren't convicted felons, all claiming similar things

    • ANSWER:
      If you found more evidence that Trudeau's book is true, than you have not done enough research, or are not keeping an unbiased view when you research. This is demonstrated by your comment that you have found so-called natural remedies to have worked more quickly and effectively than doctor prescriptions.

      Here are some links to assist you to further your research on this topic:

      I hope this helps.

      EDIT: Reiki is most certainly NOT proven to fight cancer better than conventional medicine. Where did you ever get that from? Reiki is not proven work beyond placebo for any condition. I also have a friend who spent a lot of money on Reiki training, only to realise way too late that she was being scammed. If Reiki could really cure cancer, it would be front line attack in every hospital, and big business would be all over it.

  50. QUESTION:
    Ways to preserve, maintain and safeguard library Books?
    I have a personal Library in my house.
    They are stored in an Olden type Mahogany & Teak Wood Cabinet with Glass doors.
    I live in Sri Lanka (please consider the climate, humid and mostly summer)

    The books are around 700, ranging from brand new to around 40 year old.

    What are the best "home made" remedies to ensure the safety of these books:
    From Insects (Termites, White Worms etc)
    And Natural Self aging of the books

    Thanks

    • ANSWER:
      1 A desiccant to soak up the excess humidity. Set a replacement schedule and have a blue/pink indicator paper (made by soaking it in cobalt chloride) so you spot any problems. Dryness is your best defence.

      2 A fumigant to make life hard for pests. Napthalene is cheap and acts as a narcotic, but there are many others you can use including some herbs. Cedar oil may be enough.

      3 Seal the doors

      4 Against natural self-ageing, try an environment high in CO2 or N2

      5 If you aren't going to read them often and they aren't 'on show', store them in vacuum bags. Pests don't usually go through the plastic (except subterranean termites) and none of them can live without the oxygen. Be sure the books are dry first.

How Do You Get Rid of Seed Warts
Aside from being unsightly, warts can be a discomfort and in the case of seed warts, it can also be painful. For many seed warts sufferers, this skin condition can be very frustrating and annoying. So how do you get rid of seed warts or any type of warts for that matter?

Warts are extremely stubborn growth on the skin that is caused by the human papilloma virus or HPV. You must know how to eliminate them completely because they have a tendency to keep on growing back.

In hopes of eradicating them completely, most turn to over the counter medications and medical procedures like burning and freezing the affected area. This doesnt mean though that warts are completely eliminated, they can come back and all the costs you incurred will be in vain.

Seed warts are much easier to remove. They usually appear on the hand and fingers. If the skin on you hands are broken or cut, it will be easier for the HPV to enter. There are also times when seed warts appear together with plantar warts, but this happens rarely. HPV can be easily transmitted through sharing towels, clothes, shoes, toys, and in public areas like pools and shower rooms.

Why are they called seed warts? Seed warts have black dots. These dots are created by the blood vessels surrounding the area and they look like a tiny seed; hence the name seed warts. They can be very unpleasant to look at and people have the notion that if someone has a wart then that person has poor hygiene. This can be very embarrassing so naturally, a sufferer would want to get rid of it.

Here are some of the ways to get rid of seed warts:

1. Applying salicylic acid on the warts

2. Cryotherapy liquid nitrogen freezes the seed warts and in a couple of days, it will fall off.

3. Catharidin This can cause blisters to form under the warts and in time they will fall off.

4. Immunotherapy immunomodulator agents trigger and boost the immune system

5. Electrocautery - electricity burns the warts

6. The use of duct tape the affected area is covered with duct tape for a week and then when it is removed, you need to soak the area. After that, the dead cells are scraped off.

7. When all other methods fail, the individual can choose the laser therapy

It is always best to seek medical help before using any seed wart treatment. A doctor should have proper diagnosis of the condition to determine the suitable treatment. When using medicines or drugs, you should get the ones prescribed by a doctor. Home remedies are also available and if you want, you can consult herbalists, naturopaths, or licensed healers.

If you acquire the virus, it will not leave your body even if you were able to remove the seed warts completely. The virus will remain dormant until it is triggered again. Stress can trigger the dormant HPV and there is a high chance for the warts to re-appear.

It is very important to maintain a healthy lifestyle. You should also check your diet and ensure that youre eating the right kinds of food. Exercise regularly. If your immune system is healthy, the warts will disappear soon through the natural defense mechanism of the body.

Now you dont have to wonder anymore on how do you get rid of seed warts with some of the treatment options mentioned above.

    Is there any anti-depressant medicine that you can buy without going to the doctor? Or is there any home remedies for depression??

    • ANSWER:
      Get some Fish Oil capsules at WalMart (also good for the heart/brain/arthritis) or the herb St. John's Wort (WalMart or may have to go to an herb shop). Either of these will help mild to moderate depression; however, if either of these do not help you...get to the doctor for more serious depression.

Take some walks/exercise/watch funny movies/laugh with a friend on the phone...you'd be surprised how it helps you through and back into action.

  5. QUESTION:
    Should I go to the doctor or stick to home remedies?
    I have a sore throat that has been lasting for about a week now. It always feels dry and irritated.
    I have three cold sores on the inside of my mouth (one on my tongue, one on the inside of my upper lip, and one on the inside of my bottom lip.)

  6. QUESTION:
    I am quite sick with no chance of going to the doctor --- need home remedy?
    I either have strep, or bronchitus, all I know is it is hard to breathe, I am coughing a lot, though, it's not the rough gritty coughs, just random fits of coughing and my throat feels raw. It's been like this for a week or two, we have to pay over 0 to go to the doctor, we're poor, so that's not a possibility. I've noticed people seem to care more about your personal life and who you are when answering a question, so, please, answer it with home remedies for my symptoms instead of being concerned about me not going to the doctor.

    Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      Go somewhere and see a doctor of some sort (Have to say that or else I can be sued by the City AND State for not giving good advice)

      As far as home remedies that's difficult as strep is a bacterial infection and requires antibiotics for quick remedy. How ever you can ease your suffering while your body fights it off by gargeling with warm salt water and nasal gel (NOT SPRAY) there is a "cold remedy" in the local drug stroe that is a local over the counter gel for instant absorbation into the blood stream through the nose try that to see if it helps any at all.

      Your throat feels raw because of the constant coughing (air is drying out the membranes along the esophogus) keep a bottle of water with you at all times or throat spray, do your best to stay away from cirtrus fruity stuff Citric acid can burn if there is an open sore.

      Strep throat is a serious matter, unchecked it can cause a high fever and even kill. Surviving that, it leads for future infections of the throat and eventual rupture of the esophogus. In other words, I don't care how bad off you are, you will be worse if you don't suck it up and pay for meds. Missing work because you refuse to get medical attention will only add to your money problems.

  7. QUESTION:
    Boil "down below", and it's grown, any home remedies before I go running to the doctor?
    I'm 14, and I have a boil down below, sort of in between the vagina and erm, bum.

    I'm a virgin etc.

    I'll ask my mum to take me to the doctors if it does not heal as it has been like it for about a week and has grown bigger. Any home remedies? Could it be anything else besides a boil? As it does not have a yellow/white "head" or anything x

    • ANSWER:
      Best relief for a "boil" is a wet to dry compress. you put it on wet and allow it to dry. It "pulls" the gunk out of the boil and allows it to heal. If you don't have itching or tingling, it probably is a boil.

      It may be an ingrown hair, they cause boils.

      Worse case scenario, might not be a boil, might be herpes...does it itch or hurt? If it does, better get it checked right away, there is prescription med Zovirax to control herpes (it's like a cold sore which you get on your mouth, only you get it "down below"). It's a virus, spreads easily, you don't get rid of it, just control it.

      Keep your hands and fingers clean so you don't spread whatever it is to any other part of your body. Good luck.

    • ANSWER:
      There were a number of home remedies for bacterial vaginosis which I found helpful-particularly if it hadn’t progressed to an “advanced” stage!

      * Never wash with perfumed soap and avoid overwashing (twice daily is enough) as this can strip the area of it’s natural lubricants, thus causing an imbalance
      * Always change sanitary protection frequently
      * Avoid wearing synthetic panties as these can cause overheating and dampness in the vagina, making it a prime target for bacterial growth
      * Wear a thin panty pad to absorb the odor

  19. QUESTION:
    My ma is suffering from Piles. She is reluctant to see a doctor. Are there any home remedies ?
    My Ma is a shy type. Are there any Web sites?Please help.

    • ANSWER:
      There are lots of things she can do to help herself, and the most common is a tube of cream from the pharmacy called anusol
      also arsenol and just haemoride cream, all help shrink the haemoroide
      also good health diet of fruit veg and lots of fluids.
      Alcahol does provoke haemorides too, so lots of water.
      Not tight underwear, slax etc, cotton undies helps to keep comfy, stools kept softened.
      Cool sponge baths, and if really severe , and piles are out and or down, can be gently pushed back with crushed ice in washer to shrink them back, the creams you purchase at the pharmacy do that very successfully as do the suppositories ( glycerine).used regularly.
      No pushing on the loo either,
      Don,t wipe with paper , bathe. till problem fixed.
      Now you say mum is shy, she has told you, and you have asked us. so maybe you can go and get these things.
      They are over the counter things.
      If its a continued problem there is surgery.
      But maybe just a case of incorrect diet, usually is, sitting long periods on hard surfaces doesn't help either.
      Using soft padded seats, etc.
      Check the diet, check the alcahol intake sorry but it is sometimes the cause.
      But if persists she MUST see a doctor, she may have colon problems and thay can be fixed, however left too long can be deadly serious.
      Get her to be checked ask for colonoscopy to be sure all is OK.
      Then we will be sure of good outcome.

    What are some home remedies to treat a yeast infection?
    I think I have a yeast infection, but I don't want to get any medicine or go to the doctor. Are they any home remedies to threat a yeast infection? Will it just go away by itself?

    • ANSWER:
      Tea Tree Oil

      A few drops of tea tree oil poured on a tampon and inserted in the vagina can provide some relief. It is important to dilute the oil before using it as tea tree oil is extremely potent and can cause inflammation if it is used in its undiluted form. Tea tree oil can be diluted by mixing a few drops of this oil along with a teaspoon of olive oil or sweet almond oil. Tea tree oil has anti fungal properties and will help to control the yeast infection as well as reduce yeast infection symptoms such as itching. Tea tree oil is one of the most effective vaginal yeast infection home remedies but it is necessary to first consult your doctor as some women may have an adverse reaction to this oil. Tea tree oil can also be used as a male yeast infection cure.
      Garlic

      For non-vaginal yeast infections, you can apply garlic paste directly on the affected parts. This remedy is for other affected parts of the body and not for the vaginal yeast infection. If you do not have fresh garlic, you can dilute garlic oil along with Vitamin E oil and a few drops of coconut oil and apply this blend of oils to the affected skin. While garlic oil helps to control the infection, Vitamin E oil helps to fortify the skin and coconut oil helps to provide it with several fatty acids that help to prevent the infection from spreading. Yeast infection home cures can be used alongside other treatments to help speed up the recovery process.
      Cold Coconut Oil and Cinnamon Oil

      These are two of the best natural cures for yeast infections in both men and women. Cold coconut oil or cinnamon oil can be applied on the infected areas 2-3 times a day to get rid of a yeast infection. Both these oils have effective anti-fungal properties which are very helpful in killing the yeast.
      Vinegar

      A hot sitz bath along with some added vinegar is a great way to relieve skin irritation and itching caused by a yeast infection. It is also an effective remedy to arrest the growth of yeast and restore the PH balance in the body.

  25. QUESTION:
    Got any good home remedies?
    I have a huge boil on the side of my neck. I don't want to have it lanced because I don't want it to scar. Does anyone have a recipe for a poultice or something?
    I've been putting a hot, wet wash cloth on it, hoping it will draw out the infection, and any other ideas will be welcome. I will see a doctor if home remedies don't work.

    • ANSWER:
      Try these:

      1. Flax seed poultice. Flax seed should be mixed with a little boiling water over heat. Stir constantly, using a knife to blend. When thick enough to drop from a knife, remove from heat and stir well. Spread 1/4 inch thick between antiseptic gauze, Turn over edges of gauze and put on hot plate and cover with another hot plate then carry to patient, or cover and place on a hot water bottle until ready to use. Test before applying. and if too hot, cool a minute or two. Cover a small area first, then gradually the entire surface. A poultice should not remain on longer than one hour as it cools it becomes uncomfortable. After half an hour or so another hot poultice can be applied.

      2. Soap poultice. Grate a bar of brown or yellow soap such as Sunlight, add a little sugar, moisten and tie over boil to draw.

      3. Bread and Milk Poultice: mix together to make a paste. Used for bringing boils and abscesses to a head.

      4. Bacon rind. Tie a piece of bacon rind over the boil or other infected area with the skin side of the rind on the outside. This will really draw out the infection.

      5. Carrot Poultice: Boil carrots until soft or use raw and mash to a pulp. Mix with small amount of vegetable oil. Used for cysts, tumors, boils, cold sores, impetigo

      6. Potato Poultice : Grate raw potato, mix with boiling water. Used to reduce inflammation as in arthritis. Has soothing and cooling effect. Can be applied to boils or carbuncles.

      7. Onion Poultice - Sautee chopped onion in oil add 1-2 tablespoons of flour and wrap in cheese cloth. Apply to area. Excellent for drawing out impurities. High sulfur content makes it good for inflamed areas.

      I have personally tried the bread and milk poultice with great success.

  26. QUESTION:
    Can I ask a doctor about home/herbal remedies?
    I always feel like doctors feel your wasting their time unless you have something physically wrong and treatable!

    I am having trouble concieving because my luteal phase is too short (period between ovulation and AF) and I have read that taking Chasteberry and red raspberry capsules help lengthen your LP to make conception more possible. However I don't know how much to take? I breastfeed my daughter so want to be especially careful...although I have seen these remedies mentioned on nursing mother sites so know they CAN be taken whilst breastfeeding.

    Do you think this question would be unsuitable for a doctor to answer? I've been trying to concieve for more than a year but whilst breastfeeding my first child cannot get fertility help

    • ANSWER:
      Doctors are the absolute wrong people to ask about nutrition. They are ignorant on this subject and will most likely give you bad advice. They take 1 hour, 60 minutes, of class time in medical school to learn about nutrition. The reason you feel that you are wasting doctors time unless you have something physically wrong is that their training is in drugs and surgery, not health. They provide "make believe health" from drugs. All drugs damage the body in some way, so doctors have to learn about drug interactions and how they affect a person with a particular symptom. That is not about health, it's about causing a reaction to a problem.

      In order to understand what your body needs to be healthy, you need to find out what nutrient it may be deficient in. To do this, you can see a Certified Nutritional Therapist that is trained to test you for finding nutrients you are deficient in. They can help you with this problem and not have to do a bunch of guess work like most practitioners. You don't have to guess what's good for you or will cause a response, you can be tested for this. It very good you are breast feeding, but make sure you are getting good fats in your diet because this is one of the things that most women do not do. Avoid the bad fats because these will affect you negatively. The bad fats are: VEGETABLE OILS like Soybean, Canola, Cottonseed, and Corn oils; hydrogenated and partially hydrogenated oils; fried foods; and especially things like margarine, etc. The best oil you can use is a mixture you can make and use in all your cooking and salad dressings. The commercial salad dressings all contain the bad soy and canola oils typically. Make this mixture: 1/3 olive oil (best if you get the olive oil found in cans imported from Italy because the ones made in America are now being diluted with canola to make them cheaper, 1/3 Sesame Seed Oil (get the one from the health food store that says "organic," and 1/3 Coconut Oil (get the one that is organic and virgin). For salads, use this mixture and add some balsamic vinegar and it makes a very tastey dressing that is really good for you.

      Also, make sure you are getting good salt in your diet. This is very important for the child. You do NOT want to use the typical table salt sold in the Mausoleums where dead food is held in state, because that stuff it very bad for you. It contains dextrose (sugar), heavy metal aluminum, and is heated to over 1,100 degrees to drive the moisture out of the salt and they take the electrolytes out of the salt. Get good "air dried sea salt" that contains good electrolytes.

      I strongly suggest you get a book called, "Nourishing Traditions" by Sally Fallon and Mary G. Enig, Ph.D. Both these women are true experts on food and this book is also a cook book. Read the first 63 pages and you will learn more from that than any so called "food expert" you see in the media that are nothing more than "hired guns" of the food industry.

      Also, before you subject your child to ANY shots, you need to learn what is going on with all that controversy. Go to this following web site and watch this video for your own education on that subject:

      http://www.republicbroadcasting.org/index.php?cmd=videos.video&videoID=147

      Look at all the labels of foods you are eating, even though many labels are now disguising things and are even deceptive in many ways. All foods that say "natural flavorings" for example is just another way of saying MSG that is a dangerous excitotoxin that you definitely want to avoid. Stay away from any canned or packaged foods because these are all processed and cause heart disease. They are either pasteurized or radiated to preserve them and this destroys the food value in them.

      We have lost over 50% of the antioxidant value in our food supply in the last 25 years.

      One more thing, if you can find it in your area, make sure you are drinking RAW MILK from grass fed cows, not the pasteurized garbage. You need those fatty acids and there are about 500 fatty acids in RAW MILK along with very good beneficial bacteria that you will pass on to the baby for the baby's immune system that is invaluable. Go to www.organicpastures.com and view their web site. They are an excellent source of RAW dairy products that DO NOT, and have NEVER, EVER had a single human pathogen in ANY of their dairy products.

      good luck to you

    what are some home remedies for fibromyalgia pain?
    I have fibromyalgia which is chronic pain and am having a hard time getting pain control at home and with my doctor....what are some inexpensive home remedies for fibromyalgia pain?

    • ANSWER:
      I also have fibromyalgia for over a decade. I recently bought some books thru the book club listed. The Green Pharmacy is my favorite and i'm always looking thru it for help.

      I take up to 15 or so herbs and vitamins daily. I was on several medications but went cold turkey a few years ago after a fall from one medication made me dizzy & now have perm. damage in my ankles and knees. 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.

  29. QUESTION:
    good home remedies for yeast infections?
    My girl friend has a really bad yeast infection and cant get a doctor appt - any good home remedies?

    • ANSWER:
      Yeast infections aren't that easy to permanently get rid of. Many products can temporarily relieve the symptoms, but a long term treatment approach will be your best bet to completely elliminate it.

      One of the more popular and effective homeopathic solutions is yeastrol. It's very effective at treating vaginal, penile and oral yeast infections.

      What you can also do to speed your recovery is to change you diet in a way that will starve the yeast organisms (Candida).

      Things that you should remove from your diet are all sodas, sugars, fruit, fermented foods, foods containing white flour,
      alcohol (especially beer), antacids and any product that has yeast or mold.

      Things to add to your diet are live yogurt cultures (or take Acidophilus), plenty of water, fresh vegetables, lots of protein rich foods, whey protein, raw garlic, nuts, seeds, oils, millet, rice, rice and oat brans

      Another thing to keep in mind is that both you and your partner should consider the diet change/yeastrol treatment as you can be passing the infection back and forth between you.

      Hope this helps and best of luck! :)

  30. QUESTION:
    how to treat little gastric troubles in the home without seeing doctor?
    i have some gastric troubles, because if I eat a little oily, or spicy food, my entire stomach gets completely upset. What home remedies can I take for this, without seeing the doctor, also should I avoid tea and coffee, until this problem gets over? And take only milk?

    • ANSWER:
      Greek style yogurt, or just yogurt. There are also other food products like drinkable yogurt and one amazing food item...like Kefir, which is a cousin to yogurt. Some gastric troubles are linked to an imbalance of intestinal bacteria/organisms and you can right the balance by eating some of these cultured foods. You may avoid caffeine drinks, if you can link drinking them and a resulting attack. I also recommend you see your doctor anyway, and get a complete check up on your intestinal troubles to ensure there isn't a larger problem at bay.

    Since I got pregnant 3 years ago, I`ve been having trouble with boils. I get them on the inside of my upper thigh. I`ve tried many things the doctor prescribed.. Is there any home remedies anyone has found worked?? Thanks!

It is a natural product. I am going to order more soon because I am almost out.

    How do heal infected gauges with home remedies?
    My boyfriend has gauges and they are infected. They have pus around the holes and he can't go to the doctor for them, what are some home remedies?

    • ANSWER:
      He needs to downsize by at least 2 sizes and soak them in warm water with less than a teaspoon of sea salt per cup. Do not leave the holes naked until the infection is gone or it could result in an abscess. And next time he needs to not be an idiot and stretch his ears correctly.

      ETA: The sea salt soaks are supposed to be for 5 minutes 2-3x/day, forgot to mention that.

    • ANSWER:
      A Rx for hydroquinone should not be too expensive, it's the 4% kind, the 2% sold otc is ineffective. Short of using a makeup. You must have a medical condition that is causing this and could get worse. I think Michael Jackson had a similar problem. Try using sunblock. The least noticeable makeup, longest lasting is Bare Escentuals or Dermablend, which is a heavy cream. But you need to treat the underlying condition. There really are no home remedies, no homeopathic Ayurveda type meds for this, no matter what you read. Good luck.

  42. QUESTION:
    Throat acid reflux problem (feels like battery acid in throat)...any home remedies instead of doctor visit?
    I have had this battery acid feeling in my throat now off and on for a month. I started taking Prilosec OTC almost two weeks ago and last night I had the worst spell of acid in my throat. I tried taking Maalox and drinking some milk and nothing helped. This is the first time that I have had all day acid and not been able to get rid of it. Does anyone know of an Over the counter medicine that is especially good for acid reflux/acid in throat? I have already tried taking typical antacids like rolaids and Gas-X and of course the prilosec OTC. Or am I describing acid reflux disease and thus should go to the doctor? help!

    • ANSWER:
      Since your problem is so constant and lengthy, I recommend you see a doctor. However, for acid indigestion and stomach distress I take a teaspoon of baking soda (like Arm & Hammer) and a half glass of water. It's an old remedy and it works.

  44. QUESTION:
    Any home remedies for sore throat and stuffy nose?
    Im sick and I dont even have time to go to the doctor, can you help with some home remedies?

    • ANSWER:
      Try this pressure point. It's important that it's done correctly. Right under your cheekbone, directly under your eye, you can feel a ridge in the cheekbone. You kind of want to gently, but firmly in an acupressure sort of way, push slightly upward against the bottom of that ridge with several of your fingers. This should help alleviate the stuffy nose.

      Don't let the stuff dry up in there overnight, get a humidifier. Also, any opporunity you can get all that junk out of there, do so. Don't let it clog up in there. Take hot showers, let the hot water hit on your face. The moisture from the steam is also helpful.

      You might try eating soup with lots of pepper. Or spicy foods in general.

  47. QUESTION:
    home remedies without a doctor?
    how to cure and prevent a yeast infection. dont really want to tell parents its kinda embarassing

    • ANSWER:
      Yogurt. Lots and lots of plain yogurt. If the infection isn't too bad, just eating a lot of yogurt may be able to clear it up. If it's progressed to beyond mild, you can actually apply the yogurt straight into your vagina to kill the yeast growing there. I know it sounds gross and it kind of is, but from experience I can tell you it works.

      Here's the easiest way I've figured out how to do it:

      1. Take a cardboard tampon applicator with no tip, and remove the tampon, so you just have the two cardboard pieces left.
      2. Wrap the end of the applicator that usually goes into you first with saran wrap, to seal it off.
      3. Fill the tampon with yogurt.
      4. Freeze it until it is like a yogurt pop.
      5. Rub it between your hands a little to warm it up and loosen the yogurt from the edges of the cardboard so you can insert it. Then insert it like a tampon. Do this right before bed, and wear a pad or pantyliner incase you leak.

      It's just like putting Monistat cream in, only it's all natural and also because it's cold it soothes the itch and burn associated with yeast infections. Do it every night for about a week, and take a shower every morning after so that whatever leaks out can just be washed away.

      If you can drive, then you can take yourself to the store and buy an over the counter yeast infection treatment. They have one, three, and seven day courses that can clear up a lot of infections. However, some infections won't clear up with the OTC products and do require a prescription antifungal to cure. In that case, you would have to bring it up to your parents so they can take you to the doctor to get the prescription written.

      Good luck!

    How to manage pink eye without doctor's prescription, home remedy?
    I know there's a way since, folks have been getting pink eye long before there were prescriptions for it so.. What would be the treatment or home remedy for pink eye?

    • ANSWER:
      My pediatrician recommended 'NEOSPORIN Original' ointment for my son when he got pink eye.

      She said that the ocular formula is exactly the same but much more expensive. Please make sure that it is the ORIGINAL formula one which is semi-translucent. Not the white one!

      Put a small amount of the ointment on the tip of your finger. Put the tip of your finger on the corner or your affected eye to transfer the ointment. Leave it alone, do not rub. The movement of the eye will spread the ointment around. Vision may appear a little blurry while it spreads but it will fade away shortly.

      The infection will be gone before you know it.

    sore throat nothing is helping this happens every year i DONT need a doctor just some home remedies please!!!!

NOthing is helping

    • ANSWER:
      Portions of all of the answers are correct. None of the things you have been doing will make it go away until your body is healed so you need to go back to the salt water gargles, take tylenol or ibuprofen on a regular basis and a decent dose (two tylenol every 4 hours or 600 ibuprofen every 6 hours), drink cold or warm fluids (whichever feels best), run a humidifier in the room where you sleep and rest as much as possible to allow your body to heal. If there are white patches present in your throat, you need to get a throat culture done to check and see if this is strep which would then need antibiotics. Different things work for different people and there is NOTHING that will make it go away any faster.

Bacterial Vaginosis Natural Cures - Treat BV Without Antibiotics
If you are suffering from this embarrassing and often uncomfortable condition, you may not realize that bacterial vaginosis natural cures can be used to excellent effect-very often surpassing the effectiveness of antibiotics or other conventional medication.

Bacterial vaginosis is caused by an imbalance of the naturally occurring bacteria within the vagina. There are two types of bacteria normally present-Lactobacillus, which is a beneficial bacteria and Gardnerella, which is harmful. Under normal circumstances, the two types are self-balancing, with the good bacteria working hard to keep the bad bacteria under control. Bacterial vaginosis occurs when something happens to cause an imbalance and the harmful bacteria grows out of control, causing the unpleasant symptoms of bacterial vaginosis which include itching and burning around the vaginal area and a fishy smelling discharge which can be very offensive and is normally gray or white in color and of watery appearance.

When antibiotics are taken, these work by killing off bacteria within the vagina. Unfortunately, they cannot distinguish between the good and bad bacteria so both forms are killed off. This means that although they might initially work to eliminate the symptoms, as soon as bacteria begins to naturally repopulate the vagina, there will not be sufficient beneficial bacteria to keep the harmful bacteria under control so the whole cycle begins again.
This is why well over half of women who take antibiotics for bacterial vaginosis will have a repeat attack within a few short weeks.

A course of antibiotics can work out to be very expensive, particularly if you need further supplies. In addition, many forms of bacteria become resistant to antibiotics meaning that they can easily lose their effectiveness. The worry then is if you need antibiotics to treat a more serious life threatening illness, you could find that they do not work.

You do not have this problem with bacterial vaginosis natural cures. By working to naturally strengthen and augment the body's own ability to heal, harmful bacteria is naturally eliminated and the strengthened immune system improves overall health.

There are various bacterial vaginosis natural cures you can try which can help your body to overcome this condition. One excellent remedy is natural yogurt. Live, natural yogurt contains Lactobacillus, the beneficial bacteria which we need in the vagina. Either by eating the yogurt, or by soaking a tampon in it to insert into the vagina for a couple of hours, we can help build up the levels which will help maintain control.

Another good natural cure is to take a bath in water which contains a couple of cups of cider vinegar. The naturally acidic levels will help to neutralize the alkaline conditions which are present when bacterial vaginosis occurs.

If you would like to treat bacterial vaginosis without antibiotics, using treatments which are completely guaranteed to give immediate relief and to get rid of bad vaginal odor, in just 3 days please visit Bacterial Vaginosis Home Remedies. Here you will find a choice of three highly successful top treatments-all of which come with a complete money-back satisfaction guarantee. If you have bacterial vaginosis, prompt treatment is certainly advisable as if left untreated, this condition can develop into pelvic inflammatory disease which can sometimes lead to infertility. These no-nonsense bacterial vaginosis natural cures have been used by many thousands of women worldwide and are proven to work without delay.

  6. QUESTION:
    Yeast infection home remedy question about yogurt?
    I hear you are supposed to soak a tampon in plain unsweetened yogurt and do this twice daily to make your yeast infection go away, but my question is...

    Exactly how long should I keep the tampon in?

    • ANSWER:
      i dont think that using soaked tampon is good idea!!!

      if you really want to get rid of yeast infection then you must follow these tips:

      1) Eat yogurt!!!! It contains helpful bacteria (live cultures, including acidophilus and bifidus) that destroy yeast. Use only plain yogurt with active cultures.

      2) Douche with a solution of 1 to 3 tbsp. vinegar in a quart of water. Repeat once a day while having symptoms, but no longer than a week.

      3) Decrease or eliminate sugar and sugary foods. Sugar promotes yeast growth.

      4) Use a garlic clove as a suppository. Garlic contains a natural anti-fungal agent.

      5) Try gentian violet. It's a traditional remedy for yeast and other infections, and can be found in pharmacies. Swab the area with it once or twice a day. Make sure to use a thick pad - it stains everything.

      6) Use an herbal douche. Combine equal amounts of sage, raspberry and comfrey with 1/4 part goldenseal. This can be combined with cider vinegar.

      7) You must use herbal treatment. In that case Yeastrol is really good (probably the best) product that gets rid of yeast infection comparatively fast and makes you feel more confident knowing that it wont reappear again!
      And of course it is better if you use full course (5 months - if I remember correctly). For me it worked very fast + I dont get yeast infections anymore (almost 2 years) ...

  8. QUESTION:
    Is there a product that can make my hair grow thicker and fuller? or any home remedies?
    I've heard of avocado, yogurt, tomato, and almond oil as home remedies...(individually applied, not combined).

    • ANSWER:
      It is impossible to make your hair thicker and fuller. I myself have very fine hair, and unfortunately the hair your born with is the hair your stuck with. The main reason for this is because it is impossible to change the individual thickness of a strand of hair. It can't be done.

      The only thing I can recommend is that you buy a volumising shampoo. It obviously can't make hair thicker, but it will give it a "bigger" appearance. Either that, or you can buy hair extensions for volume, but this is a very expensive investment.

    What are some home remedies to treat thrush?
    We can't get in to see our dr till Friday. What are some home remedies I can give my almost 6m/o to treat thrush? I've been giving her yogurt. What else will help?

    • ANSWER:
      grapefruit seed extract. mix 10 drops with one oz. of water. swap the solution over the infection with a q-tip. this should minimize the pain and keep it from spreading until you get to the doctor. do not use nystastin. use diflucan. nystastin is filled with sugar to make it more palatable for babies, but thrush is a yeast infection, and yeast thrives on sugar.

      Logically speaking, fiber and yogurt are both good things to eat daily to produce regularity. Remember to also drink water and exercise (walking briskly, running or riding a bike). If you have gone in 5 days, you may want to also add a stool softener.

      I would avoid the laxatives, especially the stimulant types like Dulcolax, Ex-Lax, etc. as they can lead to you being dependent on laxatives. A warm water enema will produce results in minutes and is treating the problem of hardened stool at the source without disrupting the entire digestive tract.

  11. QUESTION:
    What's the story with yogurt curing yeast infections?
    I have seen people write about how yogurt cures yeast infections - some say by eating it and others by actually putting it on the infected area. I'm all about natural remedies, but does this actually work?!

    • ANSWER:
      It's the healthy bacterias in yogurt that do the job.

      I may be a guy, but I know cuz my kid sister used to get yeast infections all the time and my mom would be all on her all the time about eating enough yogurt and enough of the right yogurt.

      The best yogurt that she ate was Yo-Baby. I guess it's made for babies pretty much but it comes with all the right cultures (bacteria) that promote your health. I've tried it and it rules! Only thing that sucks is that it comes in pretty small containers since it was originally intended for babies.

      Yes, it actually works.

  12. QUESTION:
    I've had a yeast infection for over a year. I hear to eat yogurt, but I don't like the taste, any suggestions?
    I have had the YI for over a year and a half now. I've been to the doctor and have been prescribed antibiotics. They seem to work for about a week to a couple of weeks, but then the YI returns. And I was recently diagnosed with Bacterial Vaginosis. (Yeah I'm getting tired of this!) For the past year and a half I've tried the natural remedies (garlic pills, drinking vinegar, cranberry juice, applying yogurt) and nothing seemed to keep it away for good. I hear to eat yogurt, but I don't like the taste of it. Does anyone have any suggestions besides antibiotics because that's starting to get pricy? Right now I'm fine, but just incase something comes back up, I want to be prepared. Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      things are way out of balance..... and i have had experience with chronic yeast infections and bladder infections...
      what is your diet like, a lot of sugars, breads, things like that? try cutting down, also potatoes and anything starchy, it converts to suger in the body...

  13. QUESTION:
    Will eating flavored yogurt help a yeast infection?
    I just bought flavored yogurt and then realized that that's not so good for a yeast infection because of the sugar. I wouldn't use that to put into my vagina because I realize how bad that could be (feeding the yeast and all), but will it make the infection worse if I just eat it? Will it help clear up the infection?

    Also, do you have any other general advice for a yeast infection? Any recommended over-the-counter things, home remedies, etc.

    • ANSWER:
      Yeast infections aren't that easy to permanently get rid of. Many products can temporarily relieve the symptoms, but a long term treatment approach will be your best bet to completely elliminate it.

      One of the more popular and effective homeopathic solutions is yeastrol. It's very effective at treating vaginal, penile and oral yeast infections.

      What you can also do to speed your recovery is to change you diet in a way that will starve the yeast organisms (Candida).

      Things that you should remove from your diet are all sodas, sugars, fruit, fermented foods, foods containing white flour,
      alcohol (especially beer), antacids and any product that has yeast or mold.

      Things to add to your diet are live yogurt cultures (or take Acidophilus), plenty of water, fresh vegetables, lots of protein rich foods, whey protein, raw garlic, nuts, seeds, oils, millet, rice and oat brans

      Another thing to keep in mind is that both you and your partner should consider the diet change/yeastrol treatment as you can be passing the infection back and forth between you.

      Hope this helps and best of luck! :)

  14. QUESTION:
    I need Bacterial Vaginosis home remedies?
    I am trying to find home remedies for Bacterial Vaginosis. I found here online things like Garlic, and yogurt, but it never said how to use it. There were no directions on how to use neither the garlic or the yogurt. Anyone have any other methods or directions on how to use those?

    • ANSWER:
      If you have had BV before and know for certain that it it BV, then i suggest going to the grocery store and buying something called Boric acid, its used to kills roaches, but it non harmful to humans if inserted as a suppository. after purchasing the boric acid purchase empty capsules the size should be "00" ( you could ask a pharmacist they will be happy to help you)

      open the capsules, insert boric acid then recap. insert 1 or 2 of these capsules vaginally for 7 days or 14 if symptoms aren't improving, do this at night as it gets messy, your body will slowly melt the capsules and release the boric

      also when you purchase the boric acid nd capsules you will have plenty more left over to repeat the treatment without fear of abusing antibiotics, which can become ineffective if used too often.
      without the risk of burning your inner vaginal lining like garlic can sometimes do, if not peeled properly. Yogurt is more of a preventative method once the smell has become noticeable its already too late.

      also if you're sexually active your sex partner might have something to do with it. try using condoms or even try getting him treated.

  15. QUESTION:
    can you use flavored yogurt for yeast infection?
    i read that yogurt is one of the best home remedies. some sources say plain white yogurt and some just say yogurt... I dont have access to plain ones so can strawberry work?
    ok see why is it bad to put yogurt up there? i dont have money so i am only looking at home remedies

    • ANSWER:
      It is not bad to put yogurt up there.
      Since yeast likes sugar, it would not be very good to put flavored yogurt up there, unless it is sugarless. If it's sugarless, fine. If the fruit is on the top of the yogurt and there is plain yogurt on the bottom, as some yogurts have it, you could just take the topping off and use the plain part.
      Myself, I prefer to insert an acidophilus capsule; less messy and more potent.

  16. QUESTION:
    Home remedies for yeast infection for babies?
    Can you recommend some. I know plain active yogurt works, but I dont have any on hand. I also know of vinegar and water, but am unsure of the ratio of water to vinegar and how to apply. Or any other remedies that will work? What causes a yeast infection in babies? We have never had any rashes except this is the second yeast rash. We use cloth, maybe they are getting a build up and need to be wicked? any advice is welcome! Thanks.

    • ANSWER:
      Usually its one part vinegar to 9 or 10 parts water. Cider vinegar with "the mother" is best. You can also use lemon juice, same ratio.

      You should put 1/3-1/2 cup vinegar in the rinse of your diaper loads (and actually all laundry) it will not only kill yeast but it will reduce soap build up and soften clothes. Sun drying is also highly effective for killing yeast.

      Another thing is that you need to treat yeast for at least two weeks after all symptoms are gone or it will just come back.

      Probiotics also help bring the body back into balance to prevent yeast overgrowth. They can be applied directly (or use yogurt). But they should also be taken internally. If you are breastfeeding and the baby is under 6 months mom should take them. Otherwise give them directly there are special instant dissolve ones for toddlers which are nice since they don't require refrigeration. Or you can use adult ones, just crack them open and put the powder right in baby's mouth (its sweet) or mix with food (It won't dissolve in liquid really).

      I also highly recommend grapefruit seed extract, but you wouldn't have that on hand. http://www.drjaygordon.com/development/bf/thrush.asp

      http://naturalchristianparenting.com/2009/03/02/yeast-diaper-rash/
      The yeast on the cloth diapers needs to be killed or the rash will continue to come back. I added a tablespoon or so of bleach to every hot water cycle, then added vinegar to the rinse cycle, and finally ran an extra cold water rinse with nothing in it until the rash was gone.

      http://granolagoddess.tripod.com/yeastrashandclothdiapers/
      # Make a mixture of 10 drops of Citricidal Grapefruit Seed Extract to one ounce of water. The use of distilled water to make your solution is very important. The chemicals placed in your local tap water to kill bacteria can reduce the effectiveness of the active ingredients in GSE. Put the solution into a spray bottle or swab with a clean absorbent pad at every diaper change.
      # Slather the rash with plain yogurt containing live cultures.
      # Clotrimazole anti-fungal cream (available over-the-counter with the creams for vaginal yeast infections) can be added to a diaper rash cream or you can mix your own cream using zinc oxide and lansinoh.
      # A cup full of white vinegar can be added to baby's warm bath to help soothe his sore bum.
      # Add a cup full of white vinegar to your rinse cycle when washing diapers.
      # Add 4-5 drops of Tea Tree oil to your wipe solution.
      # Wash diapers in hot water.
      # Dry diapers in the sun.
      # Add Grapefruit Seed Extract to your wipe solution or to baby's bath.
      # Add 4-5 drops of Tea Tree oil to the initial rinse or wash cycle - many mothers find TTO has a strong smell and suggest adding it before the final rinse cycle so that most of the smell is washed away.
      # Do NOT use cornstarch powders on a yeast rash. The yeast "feeds" on the powder and will make it worse. This includes plain cornstarch and any baby powder brands that include cornstarch.
      # Hydrocortisone cream can help reduce the swelling and inflammation and can be applied under the other diaper creams.

  18. QUESTION:
    Bacterial vaginosis home remedies?
    Im 13 weeks pregnant & I have bv. Are there any natural cures or home remedies(besides yogurt)?

    • ANSWER:
      Fresh garlic. I've never done it, but I read that you just insert the clove overnight. Remove it in the morning, and repeat as needed. You can poke holes in it for a stronger dose or cut it in half, but garlic can burn your skin so probably just leave it whole.

  19. QUESTION:
    Bathing in yogurt to treat yeast infection?
    So I was reading online about some home remedies for a vaginal yeast infections. They said to eat a certain amount of yogurt for a full week, and to even apply plain, sugar free yogurt to the area. Which sounds a little weird, but it's less expensive than buying a kit. So I was thinking.. would adding a bunch of plain yogurt to a bath be effective also? Or would that kill any of the good germs in the yogurt that would help with my yeast infection?

    • ANSWER:
      it's possible, but it has to be active yoghurt with living bacteria in it like a probiotic drinking yoghurt, as the bacteria in the yoghurt can cancel out the yeast for a few days
      you should ask your doctor for some over the counter remedies such as Monistat, or call your doctor and tell them you need a prescription for Diflucan. It usually cures a yeast infection in one dose.
      but it could be that it isn't a yeast infection,
      it could be bacterial vaginosis, or just the natural cleansing of the vagina.
      but there's a number of things you can do to stop the smell, and help.
      i heard that to put a yeast infection in order patting on a bit of yogurt might help and it i advised this to one of my patients who claimed it works! after a few days the smell should vanish, do the yogurt thing every few days, and when your on your period dip a tampon in yogurt before insertion. but it has to be a yogurt with ACTIVE bacteria in it, not the flavored dead kind.
      but DONT douche, it can make it worse and can lead to all kinds of infections etc.
      just rinse it with water every day, dont rub it hard,
      i've been told bathing in apple cider vinager cures bacterial vaginosis in one go, but sometimes it can worsen matters if used incorrectly (being inserted into the vagina)
      loose/cotton pants, don't sleep in underwear, it helps to 'air' it
      avoid tight clothing, but a panty liner will absorb allot of odour and discharge
      talcom powder is really good at taking away smell
      take a bath to help cleanse the area, wiggle around
      i've heard that rinsing it in salt water is good for it,
      canesten cream and pessaries are really good for clearing yeast infections
      try vagisil products, the wash, cream, wipes etc.
      drink water lots and lots of water, stay away from beer, sugars and carbs,
      drinking pinapple juice can apparently help,
      and instead of using loo roll use female hygiene wipes, or make-up wipes.
      this isn't a fullproof method, just a few things i picked up at medical practice, but if symptoms persist after a few weeks you should go see your doctor or a gynaecologist
      hope i helped

  20. QUESTION:
    What are the remedies for Sore throat?
    Hi!
    I am getting sore throat often since long time after the delivery. Its been a year for my delivery. What are the remedies for Sore throat? I get even headaches often, so I don't eat citrus fruits and yogurt at all. I only eat apple and cherries. My husband says I getting sore throat because of lack of vitamin C in my body. Need ur suggestions?
    Thanks

    • ANSWER:
      Hot Slippery Elm tea (coats the throat, instantly soothing) with lots of fresh squeezed organic lemon juice (antiseptic) and raw local honey (antibiotic).

      Traditional Medicinals makes a good slippery elm tea called “Throat Coat.” You can find it at health food stores, large grocery stores, and GNC.

  21. QUESTION:
    Can yogurt help a sinus infection?
    I have a sinus infection and my doctor told me to eat yogurt?
    Will it help?
    Why?

    Any other remedies to fix one?
    (that don't involve squirting anything up my nose)

    • ANSWER:
      no yogurt,and this does involve your nose and sinuses but works every time.My husband uses this to keep from getting bronchitis when he gets a sinus infection, and I use it to cure sinus infections. THere are many kinds of bacteria that live in the sinuses, and this gets rid of all the bad ones!.This is the only thing that really helped me --- my Dr. told me about a sinus wash that will kill bacteria.
      you need

      distilled water
      sea salt
      liquid chlorophyll and colloidal silver from the health food store.
      in a glass mix 1/4 cup water with a pinch of salt and heat to body temperature.
      add 5 drops each silver and chlorophyll and mix.
      using a large dropper (like one used for infant medication) drop 2 full droppersfull into one side of the nose while laying down.
      Turn the head and let it drain out the other nostril. Be sure to have paper towels handy. or just use a neti pot, I like this better.
      The silver kills the bacteria and there are several hundred kind that can live in the sinus cavities and anti biotics don't get rid of them all.
      Do this twice a day for a week, mixing up the mixture fresh each time.
      Then do it once a week for maintenance.
      There is nothing in this that will hurt you, and it cured me.
      I do not have to take claritin, or antibiotics anymore.
      best wishes

  22. QUESTION:
    Natural remedies/preventative measures for yeast infection?
    I am so prone to yeast infections! Every time I take antibiotics, I get one. I have heard of some vitamins or natural remedies for preventing them, any ideas?
    Also, does eating yogurt (probiotic) while taking antibiotics help?

    • ANSWER:
      Concern: Yeast Infection
      Remedy: Garlic
      Garlic is known to fight infection and stimulate the immune system.
      How to use it: If the odor of garlic bothers you, try taking it in capsule form. If you are undaunted by garlic's pungent aroma, add more raw garlic to your diet. You can swallow a clove (cut it into pieces if a whole clove is too large to swallow), or mince it and sprinkle over salads, on toast or over pasta. Garlic can also be used internally ‑- make a suppository by wrapping a peeled clove in cheesecloth and tying it off with a piece of dental floss long enough to use as a string. Insert suppository before going to bed, and remove in the morning. Repeat until symptoms disappear.

      Other remedies to consider:
      Remedy: Probiotics
      Probiotics are the good bacteria that are normally found in our digestive tract. Yeast infections often occur when the balance of good bacteria versus bad bacteria (such as yeast) has gotten out of whack. Taking extra probiotics, such as acidophilus, can help restore balance and get that yeast on the run.

      How to use it: There are several ways to get probiotics. You can buy them in tablet form and take them as a daily supplement. Talk with a holistic ND or other health practitioner to determine the ultimate dosage based on your particular situation. You can also get probiotics from eating yogurt. Eating a cup of yogurt a day can reduce the number of yeast infections a woman will get.
      What to watch out for: Sugar feeds yeast, and many yogurts are chock full of sugar. Stick to the plain variety ‑- if it's too tart for you, sweeten it with honey. Honey's natural antimicrobial properties will help the fight against yeast and not hinder it like typical white sugar will.
      Eat organic, plain, yogurt with live/active bacterial culture.

    will white yogurt help my yeast infection?
    i think i have yeast infection..it's really itchy, sore and red down there and i'm also getting that thick discharge. it's terrible and i wanna get rid of it now! i can't bear it. don't tell me to go to the doctors because i'm allergic to the pills. so can eating and rubbing the yogurt on it as well help? i trust home remedies..sorry i don't want any drugs. any other tips? and also, how long will it take to get rid of it? thanks

    • ANSWER:
      You can't just use any old yoghurt, it has to be plain unsweetened pro-biotic yoghurt.

      The reason why it has to be pro-biotic specifically is because it contains lactobacillus acidophilus, a bacterium that kills yeast by producing hydrogen peroxide - obviously unsweetened as yeast loves sugar, and plain as you don't want any bits of fruit up there!

      Do NOT use tampons to insert the yoghurt!
      Without menstrual flow tampons absorb more vaginal fluids so cause more damage increasing TSS risk, they also increase the risk of vaginal infections so best avoided during an infection. Furthermore there is a chance that unusual discharge is being caused by staphylococcus aureus bacteria responsible for TSS, so again you'd be increasing risk of TSS by using tampons to insert yoghurt.

      Apply yoghurt to the vulva trying to get as much up into your vagina as possible, or a great way of applying the yoghurt is to pop it into ice cube trays and freeze it - lactobacillus acidophilus can easily survive the cold, this way is nice and easy plus the cold can ease the soreness. Do this at night as what goes up must come down, best to wear some old underwear and ideally cloth pads, then wash off the yoghurt in the morning - you may want to wear liners during the day just in case.

      This web site shows some other home methods for treating yeast infections - https://www.msu.edu/~eisthen/yeast/diy.html This site does mention tampons which are a no-no also they mention douching which is also not healthy or safe particularly during an infection. although the douching recipes may be helpful to wash over your vulva. The rest of the information on home yeast infection treatments is sound.

    Is it OK to masturbate while having a vaginal / yeast infection?
    I'm not having sex for some time now but I am feeling like I want it so I plan to masturbate. I've had this yeast infection for about 11 days now, sometimes it "seems" to go away if I drink lots of fluids. Today I used the yogurt remedy and the smell and discomfort disappeared for awhile.

    I was wondering if masturbating can complicate the infection. I am getting Monistat tomorrow, as I feel natural remedies are starting not to work for me.

    What are homeopathic remedies for systemic yeast infection?
    I saw a program with a checklist for systemic yeast infection. I answered "yes" to nearly every question! I already know about yogurt and probiotics. What other things I should be incorporating?
    This is NOT for specific treatment of a vaginal yeast infection, rather an overgrowth of fungus throughout the body. Instead of "homeopathic" maybe I should have specified "natural" remedies instead -- such as certain foods, vitamins, or supplements to use.

      This stuff. 98% kill of Candida Albicans. Triple blind placebo study completed in 1998 and found on Pubmed.org
      http://www.microbiologybytes.com/video/Candida.html
      Proof that Candida takes two forms and can become systemic.

      What I did. http://www.glycoscience.org is real. Dr. Hudson Freeze used "Mannose" to help improve his genetic patients which is found in aloe and this company has as well. He was angered by the fact that one of his patients dropped out to take this complex from glycoscience web site and as a result, he has been on a campaign to put down the company that sells it because he wants to market glyconutrients. However, he has no patent and Oxford University has taken down his slamming article against the company that sells it, because he is proven wrong.

      In the interum, there is a triple blind pacebo study conducted by Doris Lefkowitz PhD who approves of medical dictionaries and this study shows that glyconutrient complex has a 98% kill of Candida Albicans... The mannose alone, has a 45% kill.

      Kalos, from your other answer tried to report me to Yahoo as a solicitation and once they saw my answer was helpful they restored my points and my answer.

      If you ever see Kalos Orisates answers again, feel free to report him if he calls osteopaths and chiropractors who have earned their degrees and have healed countless people in a non toxic manner quacks.

      This yahoo forum is to be of people of quality and its time for people to take charge and report those who slam natural healing to the extent that it is actually harming people, because side affects of OTC drugs is blindness and liver damage.

      It is the body, with the proper nutritional tools that are missing in the modern diet that can cure itself. Once your cells recognize the fungus, it eliminates it on its own safely with no side affects from drugs.

  29. QUESTION:
    What are some natural remedies that will prevent yeast infections?
    I get them all the time and don't like taking the diflucan pill from the doctor. I think taking drugs like that all the time is eventually going to have some bad side effects. I've heard yogurt is good for fighting yeast. Anyone know about anything else?

    • ANSWER:
      If they keep recurring, there is a reason for it. It could very well be from taking the antibiotics, from an overgrowth of yeast (candidiasis) or even a yeast allergy.

      A good way to treat it naturally is through your diet. You will need to cut out:
      - all refined and added sugars
      - preservatives and fillers
      - dairy (although plain/organic/greek style yogurt can help control some of the yeast, it is only minimally effective and the sugars and lactose will only aggravate it further - rendering it rather useless)
      - high sugar and dried fruits (no bananas, grapes, mangos, melons, etc. stick to apples, pears, peaches, citrus fruits, berries)
      - gluten
      - grains (gluten-free grains are okay in moderation after about a month. they are generally very high in carbs though, so be careful not to eat too much)
      - carbs in general (carbs are metabolized into sugar, which feeds the yeast causing it to grow and continue to spread the infection)
      - starchy foods and root vegetables (carb issue again)
      - peanuts and other mold-containing products
      - fermented foods (yeast is formed during the fermentation process. avoid all vinegars EXCEPT for apple cider vinegar which can help fight the yeast infection)
      - caffeine
      - condiments

      So basically, stick to eating the following:
      - meat, poultry, fish
      - eggs
      - nuts other than peanuts
      - non-starchy vegetables
      - low-sugar fruits
      - beans and legumes (in moderation! again with the carbs)
      - apple cider vinegar, olive oil and other healthy oils
      - lots of water and herbal tea (green tea is great)

      I know it sounds difficult and boring, but it will really help. Do this for AT LEAST 1 month before slowly easing into non-glutenous grains like quinoa and root vegetables, yogurt, etc. If you can, do it longer. It will help to cleanse your body of the yeast. When you first start, your symptoms get worse for the first couple of weeks. You will find you are craving carbs and sugar like crazy! This is because the yeast is being killed off and is basically 'starving' for food to keep itself alive. It causes your body to crave these things. It also releases toxins into your body once it is killed off, so you will need to wait for your body to clear it out to truly feel better. Do not give into temptation though, as it can really set you back in the healing process. This should take at least 3 weeks, though some people follow this for much longer (1 year or more).

      Some additional things you can do to help it:
      - consume LOTS of fibre (through vegetables, and supplements - the best is course ground original texture metamucil. This will help clear the yeast from your system.)
      - eat at least 2 cloves worth of garlic each day (or take an allicin-rich garlic supplement)
      - add 1 tbsp of apple cider vinegar to an 8oz. glass of water 1-2x daily
      - in the morning 30mins before eating anything, stir together a drink combination of: 6oz. water, 1 tsp psyllium powder, 2 tsp colloydial oil; 1 tbsp benzonite clay. These are natural anti-fungals combined with fibre)
      - probiotic supplements
      - peppermint oil capsules combined with oregano oil
      - insert a tampon soaked in 2 cups water + 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
      - drink LOTS of water and herbal tea
      (not all of these combined are necessary but even trying a few will certainly help)

      I know you're probably thinking this all sounds really hokey. I did too the first time I heard it. I just want to tell you though that I have suffered from skin problems, digestive programs, inability to lose weight, undue fatigue, kidney infections, compromised liver function, depression and anxiety, yeast infections, ovarian cysts, and many other issues for the last several years. Some of those problems - my entire life. Then I discovered I had extreme yeast overgrowth and an allergy to yeast. Since trying this - I can't even describe the difference it has made in my life. I started losing weight (I was already eating healthy, whole foods, with strict calorie intake), my skin conditions have improved, my hair and nails are so much better, I haven't had a single kidney infection in the last year (was having them constantly - once or twice a month!), my digestive problems have nearly disappeared, my liver function is now normal, i haven't had a single yeast infection, only one ovarian cyst in the last year when before I always had multiple every few months, and an unbelievable increase in energy and overall happiness! So maybe some people think it's hokey - but really, what have you got to lose? It worked unbelievably well for me, and I am now finally discovering what it is like to be in good health. I have never felt this good in my entire life.

      Anyways, I'll stop with my rant... good luck!!! I hope you feel better soon!!!!

  31. QUESTION:
    How much yogurt should I give my dog for "gas" problems?
    My dog has gas problems. He is on a very high quality, no corn, no soy, dog food (he has had gas problems through three different dog foods so I don't think it is the food). Also he does not get any treats. I read that feeding a couple of spoons of yogurt can help. Does anyone know about how much I would give a 65lb dog. Has anyone tried this remedy?

    • ANSWER:
      1
      Buy plain, organic non-fat yogurt. Look for labels that indicate that the yogurt contains live and active cultures; these are the cultures which help digestion. Most pets should find yogurt easily digestible, but soy-based yogurt is also available at most grocery stores if your pet is lactose-intolerant.
      Step2
      Include a bit of yogurt in your pet's meals. For a large dog up to 84 lbs. needs 2 tbs. per meal.
      Step3
      Stir the yogurt into your pet's meals with a spoon. While most pets enjoy the taste of yogurt and consider it a treat, others may hesitate to try the new food. Give the yogurt a quick stir into the food so that your pet will need to eat the yogurt with its regular food instead of eating around it.
      Step4
      Wait a few days to see a reduction in gas. Reduction in pet flatulence won't happen overnight. Note your pet's progress after about a week. If your pet's gas cannot be controlled with yogurt, take your pet to a local veterinarian. Excess gas may indicate a medical problem.

  38. QUESTION:
    Does anyone have any home remedies to cure a urinary tract infection?
    Besides drinking lots of water, cranbery juice, and eating yogurt. I already know about all those. I am looking for something different.

    • ANSWER:
      I agree with the person who suggested Uristat. It helps with the pain and makes you not need to pee as often. Just don't worry that your pee will be bright orange. However, you may need antibiotics to help your body fight off the infection. If it doesn't seem to be getting better soon, see a doctor.

      When I first had symptoms of a UTI, I drank as much water as I possibly could. I read that it helps flush the bacteria out of your urinary tract. I don't know if that's true, but it did help me get over my UTI in just a few days.

  39. QUESTION:
    Applying yogurt to vagina for yeast infection?

      NEVER apply yogurt to your vagina for yeast infections!!!

      Its the bacteria in yogurt that can HELP reduce symptoms and heal yeast infections!

      You need to go to the pharmacy and get some yeast creams and or tablets!!

      Normally there is a one of pill you can take, and a cream that will help ease the irritation! Its inexpensive and will help clear it up ASAP.

      Yeast Infections are incredibly common, so there is nothing to be embarrassed about. Just speak to one of the staff at the pharmacy and they will be able to assit you.

    Any home remedies people use that work?
    Does anyone have any ideas like for stuff you can use that you might have laying around the house for beauty, cleaning or medicine? like you know a yogurt facial mask or baking soda to clean... I wanna see if there are any i don't know about yet.

    • ANSWER:
      When you have a chest cold boil hot water and some vinegar and put a towel over your head and breathe deep. That will relieve some of the congestion.

      This one is my favorite. For sugar ants around your house (you know the very tiny ones) sprinkle cinnomon where they are coming in and around them. This won't kill them, but they hate it and will usually vacate the area for somewhere better. This works for a lot of insects (silverfish, for one).

      For back acne clean the area with soap and rinse. Then use white vinegar and a scrub brush to scrub it in and let it dry on your skin. Has helped me greatly.

      For muscle cramps my grandma makes bags filled with rice out of hand towels. Stick it in the microwave for 3-4 minutes and drape on the affected area. Works great for cramps too.

Home Remedy For Eye Floaters

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:
    Are there any natural/ home remedy's for eye floaters?
    I have had this humongous floater in my right eye for 3 years now and it is really very bothersome. I have asked my optometrist about it, but all he told me is that it would EVENTUALLY go away, but I am beginning to wonder...

    • ANSWER:
      There is nothing that you can do to get the floater to go away. Most often they do eventually float out of your line of vision or the brain starts to ignore them, but not always. There is a surgery called a Vitrectomy where the vitreous (the area of the eye that contains the floater) is removed and replaced with saline. This operation carries high risks and probably would not be suggested. You may want to seek out an Ophthalmologist for a good dilated exam to get a 2nd opinion over your Optometrist.

  2. QUESTION:
    Could I Have TapeWorms ? & Floaters in eye ?

If they were wouldn't I be able to see them all the time as opposed to just when looking into light ? Thank you

Home Remedies For Dog

Home Remedies For Bloodshot Eyes
As the name suggests bloodshot eyes makes your eyes blood colored. The blood vessels in the white portion of the eyes are enlarged and irritated causing the redness. Some common reasons for the redness of the eyes are due to coughing, eyestrain, dry air, over exposure to sun, dust, foreign body, an allergic reaction, infection, trauma, fatigue, alcohol consumption, lack of vitamin B2 and B6 and high blood pressure.

You can get bloodshot eyes by Blepharitis - Caused by skin bacteria that leads to itching and turns your eyelid greasy and crusty.

Conjunctivitis - Also known as pink eye is caused by a virus, bacteria and allergy or skin irritation. It is very contagious if caused by an organism.

Corneal ulcers - It is caused by viral infection affecting the outer cover of the eye.

Uveitis - It causes inflammation of uvea, including iris, ciliary body and choroids. It is related to autoimmune disorder, infection or exposure to toxins.

Home Remedies for Bloodshot Eyes

Reduce the redness by splashing cold water over closed eyes. This soothes the eye and shrinks the blood vessels as in case of an allergic reaction.

You can apply cold compress to your eyes by using an ice pack wrapped in a towel.

Use warm compress for red eyes without any itching. This may be due to fatigue or tiredness

Put three drops of rose water in your eyes.

Soak cotton pad in a mixture of rose water, milk and Aloe Vera juice. Place these cotton pads over your closed eyes for 10-20 minutes in a dimly lit room. This will help in reducing the redness.

You can try the hot and cold compress on your eyes, alternately.

Stay away from allergy triggering agents which may lead to bloodshot eyes.

Goldenseal is a native medicinal plant that contains berberine which compresses blood vessels and helps in reducing the bloodshot effect. You can use it as a compress or wash to get rid of the pain.

To get relief from bloodshot eyes have two ripe tomatoes first thing in the morning on empty stomach. The vitamin C and flavonoids in the tomatoes makes the blood vessel walls stronger.

You can also use non-preservative artificial tears, this helps in soothing your eyes and clearing the redness.

Wear genuine preservative-free contact lenses. The ones with preservatives can cause redness and other related infections.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    any solutions for washing my dog(home remedies)she had pups 4 days ago but she is really smelly?
    ok well my bitch had puppys 4 days ago ...im cleaning the house like mad but there is still a smell i think its off the dog herself any home remedies or solutions on cleaning her ...or getting rid of smell thanks

    • ANSWER:
      No need to bath the Dam

      She needs to be warm so that the pups can snuggle up to her for warmth, if she is wet or even damp this can effect the pups as they can not regulate their own body temperatures and you could be causing more harm than good. Even the death of the pups as being against their mother while not dry will draw the warmth from them.

      Even if you tried to properly dry her that is too much time for her to be away from the pups. Again no need to bathe the Dam.

      The dam really shouldn't be having a smell to her with the exception of her still bleeding a bit. Yet there shouldn't be any bad odors.

      Simply make sure you keep the whelping box clean and if need be you can spot clean the Dam with a wet wipe, yet stay away from her nipples and underside where the pups will be nursing and snuggling up to her.

  2. QUESTION:
    How can I get rid of Canine worms in my dog? Home remedies for the guy?
    My little puppy is about 5 months old. And I just recently discovered he had worms in his stool. They are dead when they come out, but there is a lot. How can I get rid of them? And can a human get them?

    • ANSWER:
      Those nasty critters are most deffinatly Roundworms..

      Roundworms can be found in your dog’s stool or vomit. They can grow to about 7 inches in length and have a spaghetti-like appearance. If this type of infestation is not detected early and is allowed a chance to develop, a buildup of worms in the intestines can cause an obstruction which may result in death.

      -symptoms of a severe infestation are: pot-belly appearance, diarrhea, vomiting, dull coat and weight loss.

      Puppies should be dewormed every 2 weeks between 2 and 12 weeks of age, then monthly until he is 6 months old. Once your puppy has reached 6 months of age, he is less susceptible to contracting these worms but should continue yearly exams (or more often if considered high-risk).

      Because Roundworm CAN BE TRANSMITTED TO HUMANS, it is important to promote good hygiene, such as washing your hands regularly. Transmission of this dog worm to humans is usually through infected soil, which may be in your backyard or front lawn. Because the eggs are sticky and can easily stick to your hands or clothing, make sure you wash your hands regularily!!!!!!

      Treatment generally involves administering oral medication (dewormer) with follow-up fecal exams and a monthly heartworm medication. Try 1-800-PetMeds - America's Pet Health Resource. Thats the best and usually the cheapest way to get pet meds for your puppy.

      Good luck!! Hope this helps!!

Due to our current financial situation, we cant take him to the vet. So what are some good home remedies to treat it?

    • ANSWER:

    I have a 12 wk old yellow lab puppy and she has mange. I would like to know some effective home remedies that will cure this.

So if you know of anything that may be cheaper that will solve this problem please let me know. And please explain and be thorough.

    • ANSWER:
      If you have not gotten a diagnosis from a vet, how do you even know you are dealing with Mange?

      You need to start with a diagnosis, and unfortunately, there is NO home remedy if it is Mange.

      If you had started at the vet in the first place, it would not have been expensive at all. Now you get to pay a lot more than if you had made the right decision the first time.

      Live and learn. Take your dog to the vet.

    • ANSWER:
      This isn't really a "home remedy" but I found this amazing product at my local pet store (Speck's Pet Supplies) called Four Paws cologne. You can probably find it online by searching for Four Paws Products LTD. After brushing, spray it lightly from head to tail and it leaves a soft, pleasantly scented coat. The best part is that it doesn't leave the coat all sticky. I've tried other, more expensive, products like Pet Head "between baths sprays" (found at petsmart), but they all leave this sticky, time-for-another-bath-soon, feeling to the coat.

      BTW - you have a cute dog :)

  6. QUESTION:
    Does anyone know any effective home remedies for dog ear infections?
    My dog is 2 year old German Shepherd/Golden retriever mix his ears have been in pretty good shape but then I went on an emergency trip to India because my father-in-law isn't doing so well and since it was all last minute I had my next-door neighbor be my petsitter i trust her and I've known her for about 2 years now she has three dogs and they're all well trained and great dogs but I came back from my trip and I noticed that my dog was shaking his head and like tilt it and then shake again I checked his ears and there was this brown nasty smelling liquid in it I cleaned it out and he stopped the shaking for a while but then it came back so I took him to the vet but the meds she gave me did nothing for his ear,we've taken him there a couple times and it's the same result everytime and we paid over 0 dollars for these visits I can't afford to keep doing this. Does anyone know any effective home remedies or something I can maybe buy from Petsmart or something that will help clean his ear out and keep it that way?

    • ANSWER:
      Sorry, I don't think anything other than what the vet can give you will help...however, you need to go to a different vet. The inability of this vet to correct the problem is ridiculous. They should be able to take a swab, look at it under a microscope and take care of it....sounds like they're incompetent.

  7. QUESTION:
    At home remedies for dog scratching itself?
    I have a 14 LB mix. He has allergy problems, always had an itch/always scratching. I've taken him to the vet for it, and was prescribed some sort of pill (antihistamine?).

    I'm not at home for the next few days, and he's with me. He's itching terribly and I can't find his pills anywhere, I must have left them at home.
    He had a bath yesterday, and that didn't help matters.

    Is there anything I can do for him until I can get his pills Tuesday?

    • ANSWER:
      Make sure he is getting a decent food, when bathing oatmeal shampoo is a MUST!! Also, I give my dog a fish oil capsule once a day- it helps!

  8. QUESTION:
    Does anyone know any home remedies for dog pee burns on my lawn?
    My dogs urine is leaving burn spots on my lawn, i have heard that giving dogs tomato juice can help with this. Does anyone have any experience with this or know of any other methods?
    My dog is approximately 9 months old, and has been on pedigree puppy since i brought him home 6 months ago. Will be weaning him onto adult dog food soon.
    Where did I say i had a poodle? I have a Jack Russell/ Aussie Shepard mix.

    • ANSWER:
      The pee burns are caused by the high concentration of acid and nitrogen in their urine. Hey, it's the nature of urine. if you pee peed on the lawn it would do the same thing.

      Only fencing will prevent this.

      What you might also want to do is to train your dogs to use a specific spot as their bathroom. Take them out on leash over to their "spot" and praise them to the stars and moon for their using that spot to pee/poo. After they've emptied, let them loose in their "play place" (your yard). If they pee anywhere else, scold them and take them to their designated bathroom. Then praise them for using the right spot.

      Just like training them to not pee pee in the house.

      Thing is, until they have a reliable routine about their bathroom, you have to supervise their outside activities. so you can't just turn Jack and Jill out by themselves and expect them to "go there" any time soon. And even at that - they'll probably make mistakes.

  18. QUESTION:
    home remedies for dog's ear infection?
    i live in a sub-tropical region, my dog has long droopy ears and is prone to ear infections. she gets it every week and a half. The vets have given us ear medicine, but she hates it and dosn't seem to work. normally i find that over time the infection cures itself, rather than going away with medication.

    are there any home remedies to cure dog's mild ear infection?

    • ANSWER:
      The 'purple power ear solution' works beautifully for my dog.
      We struggled with ear infections with her for some time before I found that recipe and began using it. The medicines the vet tried always irritated her ears terribly, but the purple solution doesn't bother her at all. She hasn't had an infection since then (we now have her on the once-a-month maintenance schedule-see the first link below).

      It's a mixture of gentian violet, boric acid, and rubbing alcohol or witch hazel (I use a 50/50 mix of rubbing alcohol & witch hazel for my dog). All of the ingredients can be found at most drugstores or pharmacies.

      These links have the recipe & directions:

  20. QUESTION:
    does anyone know any home remedies for a dog who has a yeast infection in their ears?
    our female english mastiff has an ear infection, and we want to know if there are home remedies or herbs we can use to clear it up, not something expensive we have to get through a vet or some website, something we can buy at a store and use at home.

    • ANSWER:
      since it is a yeast infection..don't laugh, it really works..monistat or any other feminine yeast product will work on your dogs ears! it has essentially the same basic ingredients as the mometomax that your vet will prescribe.

      no treatment will work however if you don't take precautionary steps to preventing another infection. first, clean the ear well with an ear solution (from pet store) and cotton balls. apply some of the monistat into the ear canal and massage the ear thoroughly (you want the medicine deep into the ear). clean and apply med once daily until a significant imporvement is seen, then move to once every other day, and ween off like that.. yest is caused by moist dark places, so do everything within your power to keep your pup's ears dey.

      good luck hope this helps :)

  21. QUESTION:
    Home remedies for dog yeast infections in the ears?
    My dog has yeast problems and I can't afford the pricey vet bills. I've heard about 1 part water to 1 part vinegar, but haven't tried it yet. Has anyone tried this or have any other things I could try? Her ears are really smelly right now. They don't really seem to be bothering her too much. She scratches a little though. She is also on NZYMES pills from nzymes.com. Thank you!

    • ANSWER:
      My dog had yeast infections in both ears. I cleaned them with vinegar water every few days, and eventually they cleared up and now she has no more infection. =) There's also a concoction you can make. I've never tried it personally, but it seems like it would work. I have all the things to make it, but never got around to it. xD And I'd also be careful it doesn't stain anything when the dog shakes it out, but here's the link:
      http://www.zimfamilycockers.com/EarCleaner.html

      PS: It's not just for Cocker Spaniels, but all dogs. =P

      EDIT: Oh, and also, you can get an otoscope to check her ear canals to see if they progress and if whatever you're using is working. Good luck, and hope this helped! =)

    i am looking for suggestions to help with our dogs' bad breath. i want something natural, non-chemical. could i potentially put something like lemon juice in their drinking water? i know tea tree oil helps with human breath but as far as i know that would not be safe for the dogs to swallow. i do not want to purchase doggie mints or breath strips. we already only feed high quality dry food and hard snacks, plus fresh fruits/veggies. any suggestions would be nice.

    what are some home remedies for dog's mange?
    Can i put hydrogen peroxide with water solution to my dog's skin or vinegar with water solution? or any tips?

    • ANSWER:
      I answered this question when you asked it before. Peroxide or vinegar is going to make it worse and may be very painful for the dog. Especially if there are open wounds. The vet can give you something for mange, but there are different types of mange, so there are different types of treatments.

      Call the vet.

  25. QUESTION:
    any home remedies for dog with sores?
    my friends dog has sores on his legs that look like warps under the skin , the dog bites at them until they break open and he was wondering if anyone could give him a home remedy that might fix the problem.

    • ANSWER:
      OK, at least two possibilities. Either the dog has lick sores, or little growths (possibly cancerous) that he breaks when he bites. My dog has had both. First of all, take it to the vet, and find out if they need to be removed. If they are cancerous, then get them removed, however, it is more likely that they are lick sores. Lick sores can be healed up. It is vital to get an e-collar, as just about any other collar a dog can get around. You can get these at the vet or at a pet store. You will need to keep the sores clean, so clean them twice a day with hydrogen peroxide on a cotton ball. If they are on a leg then you can make a bandage. Use a large non adhesive pad with antibiotic ointment on it, to cover the wound, then wrap it gently with gauze. To keep it in place, wrap duct tape around the gauze, only be VERY care full not to overlap the gauze, and catch the dog's hair in the tape. Don't get mad at me for suggesting duct tape. I know from experience that a dog that chews itself will be able to get almost any kind of bandage off, so the duct tape is necessary, but most be used with caution. As with all bandages, wrap firmly, but not too tight, and if the leg get at all swollen, remove the bandage. Although I have suggestions for lick sores, the dog needs to go to the vet first, so they can make sure it isn't something more something more serious. Good luck!

      Edit-About bag balm, if the skin is dry or flaky, then bag balm might help (I tried it and it didn't do much for my dog but it can't hurt to try), but if the sores are wet, don't use it.

    Does anyone know any home remedies for dogs who have asthma or allergies?
    i have a beagle-mix. she is about 11 years old. she has problems w/ her breathing. sometimes she has "weezing attacks" water doesnt seem to help. when she is sleeping she breathes very heavy and it seems she is having trouble breathing. she has done this for a while now, but we were living somewhere else and she didnt do it there but now that we are home again she does. she is an indoor/outdoor dog. if anyone knows what could be causing this or anything that might help, please let me know. besides of course taking her to the vet. any kind of natural remedies or medicine or something. thanks.

    • ANSWER:
      treat the dog as if it were a child...get an air purifier in the home to free the air of allergens; also, make sure your home is a smoke-free enviroment, as that can really set off the dog's asthma....also, some vets tell dog owners to buy claritin or benadryl (over-the-counter) to help their pets with their allergies....talk to your vet about that option. it sounds crazy but i've seen it all before...prozac puppies and claritin kitties!

    can anybody suggest a cheap home remedy for a dogs ear infection? I have a cocker spaniel and she has some kind of ear infection but I am out of work so I am trying to avoid taking her to the expenisive vet.
    Has anybody had any luck with any home remedies for this? I have tried putting the fluids from a couple of vit. E capsules in her ear but I am not sure if it has worked or not...I have only just did this yesterday though.
    Any thoughts on this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much in advance.

    • ANSWER:
      There is NO home remedy - you need to get your dog to the vet, have the ear infection identified -- could be a yeast infection, could be ear mites.

      The vet will then give you the proper treatment for the problem.

      This is not expensive and absolutely necessary. Ear infections don't go away with home remedies, you've just made it worse with the E capsule.
      This isn't an option, it is absolutely necessary to get your dog treated by a vet - ear infections are painful, itch like mad, and can cause deafness and worse for your dog.

      Get that dog to the vet -- doesn't cost that much for the infection to be identified and the right medication given.

  37. QUESTION:
    My dog has a red, swollen penis, which is discharging clear liquid. Any idea for home remedy or what this is?
    My eight year old mix breed has his "lipstick" sticking out this morning. It looks angry and swollen. It appears to be leaking pee, or a discharge of similar fluidity. He was given to me by a friend 2 weeks ago and when I offered to keep him, I didnt plan for an immediate giant vet bill. Any ides on home remedies? Can dogs get STDs?

    • ANSWER:
      There is a female in heat somewhere. He needs to be relieved. If you can fit it back into the sheath with some vaseline then do it. If not, call your vet for his instructions. Some treat it like an emergency. Ours just suggests dex and time.

      This is normal. There isn't anything really wrong with the dog. He just smells an available female that he can't get near.

      Dogs can get some types of STDs, but that's not what this is.

    Lets try this question again about home remedies for dogs lol!?
    I am working on training my dogs, but I am having trouble training them not to stand on the "baby gate" that separates them in a different room with dog door when they are not wanted in house. I am not looking for obedience school or crate training. Just some old school remedies that people might have used. Thanks Much!

    • ANSWER:
      When you see them putting their paws on the gate, step in front of them and tell them off. When they do get off praise them with a treat/toy/whatever motivates them the most. It'll probably take some time until they finally get it, but just be consistent. :)

      I just have to add: I don't agree with Phyllis L because how are they learning exactly with a water gun being sprayed at them? Doesn't exactly sound like 'fun' either. Especially if it spooks the dog.

    bad dog breath...home remedies!!!!?
    hi my dog has really bad breath....any one have any ideas or home remedies for this that u have tried before that are good

    thanks people for ur help :)

    • ANSWER:
      Your dog could probably benefit from a professional dental cleaning at your vets office. Dogs can get periodontal disease easily and its usually the cause of bad breath. His front teeth may look fine to you, but I'm sure his molars are probably in bad shape if you've never brushed his teeth and he's never gotten his teeth cleaned.

  42. QUESTION:
    Any home remedies for a dog's toenail that broke off and is bleeding??
    I took my dog out for a walk today and when we came in I noticed blood all over my floor. It has stopped bleeding so badly but still looks dreadfully painful! Part of the toenail is still there. Any ideas on how to permanately stop the bleeding?? Help her out of pain?

    • ANSWER:
      If you cant take her to the vet and it is still bleeding you can actually use flour to stop the bleeding. I would try some pressure on the area first and I would wrap it with a bandage if it is the dewclaw(nail higher up on leg). If the nail is hanging it will need to be trimmed off before you bandage it. If it is a regular nail bandaging doesnt usually help all that much, but again it will have to be trimmed if it is just hanging or it will get caught on things around the house. Also watch to make sure it doesnt get infected-most of the time this is not a problem- but ocassionally they need antibiotics. Not much you can do for pain at home- no human pain meds are safe for dogs- you will cause more harm than good if you give her something over the counter. Buffered aspirin is ok and may help a little- but not knowing the weight of your dog I cant tell you how much to give. Good luck- they usually feel better very quickly, especially once the nail is trimmed away. If she still isnt a lot better in the am- just check with your vet for the next step. Hope she feels better soon.

      This is far more serious than trying something at home or using diapers for goodness sake.

  46. QUESTION:
    Dog sick, home remedies?
    What's the home remedy for my dog? She's been vomiting and having loose stools. She actually woke up twice last night and had to be let outside. Generally, she goes out once in the morning, once when my husband gets home, we go for a walk when I get home, then she goes out again after she eats. Lately, she's been lethargic and we almost leave her outside with the frequency she needs to be out there.

    She doesn't seem to be eating at all, but does drink her water. This has been going on since Tuesday. On Monday, she threw up once but was fine otherwise.

    Any home remedies? Should we take her to the vet?

    She's about 2 years old, if that matters...
    I should have mentioned I'm not the biggest fan of her vet... They seem to walk in the room, look at the dog (or animal) and say, "Yup, Fluffy is sick. If you want a further diagnosis, we can do an (x-ray/lab work/whatever) but it's really not necessary. Fluffy is sick." Sometimes they tack on a heafty priced prescription...sometimes the prescription works.

    So, home remedies would be really helpful! ;-)

    • ANSWER:
      The best thing would be to take her to the vet. That way you can see what's wrong with her and how she can get well:)

  47. QUESTION:
    Are there any home remedies for dogs with tummy aches?
    My dog just took a flea medicine pill and now seems as though he isn't feeling well. Our vet's office is closed for the evening, and I was just wondering if I could give him anything to make him feel a little better.

    • ANSWER:
      The pill may have upset his stomach, but it does not indicate a visit to emergency.

      DO NOT give him Pepto Bismol! Really bad case of diarrhea will follow. Something in it. If you can't get him to some grass that he can graze (he will instinctively know which kind he needs) check with your local (large) pharmacy for a small bottle of Aluminum Hydroxide. One-three ounces depending on the size of your dog. Or let time take care of the issue. Tomorrow morning he should be back to normal.

      Provide lots of fresh water. And a warm place to cuddle near you.

      Best wishes
      Babe

  48. 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.

  49. QUESTION:
    Know any good home remedies for a dog with pancreatitis? ?
    He doesn't like rice. I'm giving him chicken and a small amount of dry dog food.

    • ANSWER:
      my dad's poodle just had to go to the vet over the weekend for pancreatis.

      if the dog is currently suffering, he needs to see a vet. He will need an IV, antibiotics and monitoring to ensure that the inflammation goes down, otherwise left untreated it could cause permanant damage, such as diabetes.. or even death, whether it be from infection diabetic coma, etc.

      Also if he's currently suffering, feeding isnt a good idea right now.. he needs to let his system rest and get nutrition and fluids thru IV.

      My dad's dog was in the hospital for 2 days.. the vet reccommended a low-fat diet when he returned home... we had to research and find a kibble with low-fat content on the label. I think dad went with Natural Balance, as it was 6 % fat.

Remedies Book

7 Easy Knee Pain Remedies
After a long day on your feet, knee pain sufferers know that their knees are going to be killing them. When your knees are sore you want easy relief, you want to be able to feel it right away. There are several things you can do to get simple, no-fuss reprieve from knee pain. Don't you wish there was a list of these knee pain remedies that you could easy reference when your knee joints are throbbing? Luckily for you, there is!
Give your knees plenty of rest. If you know that your knees are a touchy subject, avoid those activities that you know aggravate the pain. I know it may be hard to opt to sit out on a game of hoops with your buddies, but if you suspect it will cause more harm than good, sit it out this time. This requires actively listening to your body and its needs before your knees are hurting. Invest in a better pair of shoes. Don't underestimate the importance of a good pair of supportive sneakers. If you are always wearing the latest style of high heels to work, it may be contributing to your knee pain. I'm not suggesting a pair of frumpy nurse shoes necessarily, but don't sacrifice comfort for style. There are several name-brand shoes that specialize in both. Ice The tried and true is still the best. Ice is a great remedy for knee pain. It provides comfort, or at least numbs and deadens pain, and it also helps reduce swelling. Keep several of those squishy blue reusable icepacks in your freezer for when your knee pain flares up. Wrap the icepack in a thin flannel or dishcloth so it is more comfortable against the skin. Begin exercising on a cushioned surface. Instead of running on the street for exercise, consider an indoor track. Often, the indoor track will be made of rubber that will aid in cushioning your knee joints. If you like to walk, consider walking on the grass instead of the pavement. Get some support. I don't mean the emotional kind, although that couldn't hurt. A good supportive knee brace can help alleviate knee pain. Be careful when selecting one that is supportive but not too tight. If the brace is too tight it may actually cause more damage by forcing the joint into an unnatural position. Warm up and stretch. Both before exercise and before you go to sleep, warming the muscles with heat (as long as you are sure you don't have any swelling) is a good way to relax knee pain and prevent injury. Stretching is an excellent way to promote flexibility and strength in your legs. Take a pain reliever. You may assume I left the simplest for last, and you'd be right. An over-the-counter anti-inflammatory is an easy way to reduce your knee pain. Doctors recommend ibuprofen to reduce inflammation and swelling in joints. It's usually gentle on the stomach in small doses, and recent studies indicate that it may be better for knee pain in the long term as well.
Now that you have this simple list of fuss-free knee pain remedies, get to it! Try a few from the list and see how well incorporating even just one or two of these ideas will help your pain disappear.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    Why are people so down on the Natural Remedies book just because the author(Kevin Trudeau) was a felon?
    Yeah, so he was a felon.. so what? The stuff in his books arent things he made up. In fact, if you pick up one of his books he sites the sources (which are real doctors from all over the world) who believe these treatments. In america we have all been brainwashed to believe that only the "medical" doctors can help us with all their drugs.. but thats crap. I have been seeing an herbal medicine doctor for 11 years. For 16 years I suffered from migraines. He gave me a little bottle of some herb (it was 11 years ago, I dont remember what) and I haven't had one since. I read thru trudeaus book and havent found anything I couldn't find research to back up. People who are in denial that natural cures work have been brainwashed by society. They may take longer to work, but that's because they actually work, they don't mask the symptom. Think about it, you take asprin for a headache..why? Is an asprin deficiency causing it? You mask the symptom, but never cure the cause.
    From what I gathered what the book said was that viruses could be cured. And before anyone says it, it also says that the sun doesn't cause skin cancer. And this has been proven over and over. All the crap we put in our bodies causes skin cancer. Thats why people who live in warm climates, out in the sun, in other countries don't get it nearly as often. They don't stop at McDonalds every day. They eat healthy and that keeps their bodies healthy, which keeps their skin cells healthy.

    • ANSWER:
      I agree North Americans in general are eating horribly, not exercising enough, overweight, and using too many unneeded Rx meds. However, no one needs a book to tell us that.

      Fact is, while this book may work for people who have "benign" (non life-threatening) conditions like headaches, rashes, or are otherwise healthy, there is nothing here that can cure all the diseases he claims he can.

      Most people with serious diseses KNOW they may or will die without treatment, so why would they take the risk? I know if I had breast cancer I would rather have the tumour removed as opposed to taking an unproven herb for months in hopes that it *may* have any effect.

      In fact, people with serious diseases DID die prior to modern medicine. Surgery, antibiotics, medication, and vaccines have saved many lives. Perhaps your own parents were spared from polio due to modern medicine. Perhaps antibiotics have saved you from a deadly infection.

      I think the people who are REALLY brainwashed are the people who don't see ANY of the good in Western Medicine and think that a 0/vial unproven natural "remedy" or book will cure all of society's diseases.

      P.S. That guy has NO understanding about health, medicine, or science.

      Viruses constantly mutate and spread like wild fire. If we could even cure 1 strain, 500 new mutations would reproduce themselves within the hour.

      Second, people who live in "hot climates" near the equator get tons of sun exposure, yes, BUT THEY TEND TO HAVE MUCH DARKER SKIN!!!! Although people with dark skin can get skin cancer, the risk is much higher in the light skinned. I'm sure the cases of skin cancer in white people in that same area are quite high, it's just that they make up a small portion of the population.

      We all need to live healthy and take care of ourselves. There is a time and place for natural preventative medicine. But someone unqualified like Trudeau should not be falsely claiming he has conqured complex diseases in his propaganda book.

      Because he is uneducated and probably KNOWS he is wrong or misguided, he is out to scam the public. His target audience isn't healthy people, it's the desperately sick and dying people looking for a miracle.

  2. QUESTION:
    What book on home remedies and herbal medicine is the best?
    You see these informercials on herbal medicine and cures and I wonder to myself is there any value to these books. So what do you think, is there a popular book on home remedies that is worth having?

    • ANSWER:
      Little Herb Encyclopedia: The Handbook of Nature's Remedies for a Healthier Life by Jack Ritchason is the one I've sworn by for many years now.

  3. QUESTION:
    How can I publish my book related to beauty remedies ?
    what is the best way to publish my book on beauty remedies ?

    • ANSWER:
      Find a publisher of non-fiction, and beauty remedy books. make sure its not done before or too similar to others. try to locate an agent who will support your book. though i'm not sure about non-fiction books if they need agents or not..

      i think this will help you. http://www.writing-world.com/publish/bookprop1.shtml its a place on how to publish your non fiction work. i cant paste it all here so i'll show only the beginning.

      Check Your Bookshelf
      The best place to start your search for a publisher is your own bookshelf. If you're writing about a nonfiction topic, you probably already have several books on that topic. Take a look at the books you've collected. Pick out the ones that you enjoyed the most, or found most useful. There's a good chance that the publishers of those books are the ones who will be most interested in your proposal, because of the similarity of content and approach. If your book will be more comprehensive than your "favorites," look for the publisher of the most comprehensive book on your topic to date; they might be interested in a book that takes that topic to the next level.

      Another approach is to check your bookshelf for books on a comparable or related topic, but not necessarily the same topic. For example, if you're writing about a craft or hobby, look at the craft books on your shelf. Is there a publisher who produces good books, but nothing on the topic you want to cover? Look at publishers of broader topics -- for example, a publisher of pet-related books who hasn't yet brought out a book on "caring for the older cat," or a regional publisher who publishes books about your state, but hasn't covered your specific area.

      It goes on, so try to look at that! God bless!

  4. QUESTION:
    what are the remedies in the book "No More Moles, Warts, or Skin Tags"?
    i dont want to waste all this money on buying this book ! has anyone read it and can pleaseee tell me some of the remedies in this book?

    please !

    • ANSWER:
      If you don`t waste your money on this book then maybe you are not believing in this book! ;)

      anyway - if you want remove warts then you should remember 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!

      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 a good (probably the best) product that gets rid of warts 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

      good luck!

      Encyclopedia Of Natural Medicine

  8. QUESTION:
    What are the remedies to stop book theft and mutilation in academic libraries?

    • ANSWER:
      You should go to your librarian and ask.
      One obvious way to try to counteract book theft is to install a security system. Every book must be tagged, and there are gates at the door that sound an alarm if a book that has not been "desensitized" is taken out of the library. There are several different systems--some are magnetic, but that process will erase audio and VHS tapes, so that's a drawback there; some use radio waves. Check out something called RFID tags.
      As for mutilation, it's kind of hard to prevent. If someone returns a book and you don't notice any issue until the next person has the book and points it out, there's not a lot you can do. You can't know when the damage occurred or by whom.
      I can tell you that I worked in a high school library where we kept old yearbooks in the back and did not even let students know we had them. In previous years, when these books were accessible, kids would cut out old photos of teachers or, shall we say, get "artistic" with some of the pictures.
      @Jasmeen, obviously, if a librarian knows a patron has damaged a book, that person must pay to replace it. A custodian once brought us a book found on the school roof, where it had been in the rain and weather. We found out who had checked the book out, and that student was held responsible for paying to replace it. The problem occurs when someone just removes a book without checking it out, and this can happen. Then we have no idea who took it or, if we find it damaged, who did it.

  9. QUESTION:
    what is a good book with natural remedies for womens health?
    i want to detox, cleanse, and get my uterus in shape. i dont have a period right now and im looking for natural fixes. what are some great books,websites, or google search keywords?

    • ANSWER:
      The best way to detox and cleanse your system is with natural foods. Try a raw food diet for a week or two- (fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, fresh juices, filtered water) your body will cleanse itself and balance your hormones naturally. (My husband advises this diet for women trying to conceive- and it works the vast majority of the time.)

      The two books I would highly recommend are:
      Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom by Christiane Northrup
      Prescription for Nutritional Healing by Balch & Balch

  10. QUESTION:

  12. QUESTION:
    What is a good book on herbal remedies?
    I want to learn more about how certain herbs can help with just about anything from diseases to cosmetic purposes.

    • ANSWER:
      While it is true that herbal preparations can help with many pathologies, you need more than a "recipe book" to use them. First [or at least at the same time] you must study chemistry, anatomy/physiology, pathology, pharmacology, and more to understand how the human body works to be able to use herbs to heal.

      If you are really interested in healing with herbs, there are accredited schools and courses that are available.

      I read through this book today for a few hours while at my Aunt's House today and I have never been one for these ''home remedies'' etc. I found the book extremely well layed out, for one thing. You can look things up by either problem(insomnia, hair - loss, coloring, etc, arthritis, cold, headaches, etc) or by ingredient (flax oil, honey, lemon juice) which I found to be very helpful. I had a list of things I wanted to find out how to cure or rather, help ease the discomfort. I also had a few ingredients I wanted to look up to find out what they could be used for, so the double purpose of that was really helpful.

      The book is also written by two sisters who have a sense of humor and who integrate it into parts of the recipes. There are medicine/remedie recipes for your body, but there are also a few really awesome homemade chicken soup, salsa, recipes. I was actually fascinated by how much information was in here and it wasn't boring at all to read! "

    • ANSWER:
      Whoa!!! Sooo many great books on a wonderful subject!!!

      I hae quite the library of the sort...love every piece...but my tried and trues are 4 that I cross ref from:

      * A 2-book set by Mrs. M. Grieve called "A Modern Herbal"--excellent for the beginner seeking info on the all around folklore, medicinal, culinary, & even cultivation of the plant world.
      *A must have for any herbalist..."Back to Eden" by Jethro Kloss...big Daddy of the herb world...lots of great old info--the whys & what fors of remedies.
      *A good ref for Western/Eastern medicinals...Michael Tierra's "The Way of Herbs".

      Another addition for the person who wants to cover all the bases..."Earthway" by Mary Summer Rain...this is the future of medicine through the eyes of a great Native American, No-Eyes...you'll get the irony when you get to know the woman...very informative about common sense stuff, star stuff, and color stuff, as she would put it, as well as the dark sides of the plant realm that most books don't explain well enough.

      As part of your gift, turn your friend on to www.herbalhealer.com...Mariah McCain is above & beyond even Kevin Trudeau...very awesome chickie indeed, and sooo very come-on sense...they can get a free catalog and e-mail news that they won't know how they've lived without.

    Can anyone tell me how can I download the complete book of ayurvedic home remedies by Mr.Vasant Lad?

      Ayurveda:
      "Because the intelligence of the universe and the intelligence of the self are the same, the new physics turns out to be a great support for (the idea)... that reality can be changed once you reach the level of the self," says Dr. Chopra, M.D, author of the best-sellers Quantum Healing and Ageless Body, Timeless Mind And many other books on Ayurveda.

      "The universe and the human organism are united at the level of intelligence."

      One of those changes, for example, is the ability to prolong life-to make it more like energy or Light, more immortal and less mortal. "I've seen yogis in India who lived to be 300 and 400 year old," says Vasant Lad, B.A.M.S., M.A.Sc., director of the Ayurevdic Institute, a native of India and one of the few trained Ayurvedic practitioner teaching in the United State.

  28. QUESTION:
    What is the name of the gentleman who wrote a book about remedies & got baned by the FDA?

    • ANSWER:
      Do you mean Kevin Trudeau? I don't know if his book got banned but I know it got panned do to the fact he has no medical background or knowledge and his book could cause a lot of harm. I think due to freedom of the press though, no action was taken on the book other than to broadcast on the news how harmful the book could be and that the guy was a phony.

  29. QUESTION:
    What are some good natural remedies books and websites?
    I want to find websites, books and message boards on how to cure certain health problems using natural methods. List as much as you can find. Thanks

    • ANSWER:
      From an herbal perspective, here's a few books I rely on for simple (and complex) remedies for pretty much most ailments.

      David Hoffmann "The complete illustrated Holistic Herbal" Gives info on each herb, how to make decoctions, salves etc. But the best is the illness section: He gives formulas for specific conditions. A very well-respected herbalist in his field.

      Anything by Rosemary Gladstar (one of the founders of modern western herbalism). You may be interested in "Rosemary Gladstar's Family Herbal: A Guide to Living Life with Energy" also has herbal info but it's really about remedies/formulas for everyday stuff that comes up.

      The Family Herbal by Barbara and Peter Theiss.

      The only message board I can think of is...
      http://curezone.com/forums/
      But not sure how 'natural' it is for you

      Some sites. I don't really use these but they were in my files.
      http://www.alternative-medicine-info.com/
      http://www.alternative-medicine-and-health.com/

      2 good magazines you can get at any big bookstore but here's the sites. They may have some stuff

      Since this was asked in Engineering:

      1) Instead of consulting the stars, try consulting the Engineer that designed and manufactured the stars (ie: God). The better you understand His design for your life, the better you'll be able to fulfill your designed purpose, and you'll feel better fulfilled too.

      2) The less money you spend on astrology books, readings, etc, the more money you'll have to invest in things that pay dividends.

  41. QUESTION:
    I need info on book " Bottom lines secret food cures & dr. approved folk Remedies?
    I saw an infomercial on the above named book and can only seem to find where to buy in online. I can't buy it in stores and I also can't find any helpful reviews that aren't on the sight that is selling it. I don't want to buy a book I have really been able to get enough information on that isn't tainted by the sellers. Any suggestions?

    • ANSWER:
      You can try asking Barnes and Noble or Borders (or other local book seller) if they can order it.

      Some other options you might want to check out along the same lines are all Dr. Patrick Quillin's books. You can search for and find him online. You may also want to check into Jordan Rubin, who recovered himself from death's door and shares many of the same types of remedies in the several books he's written. They should all be at Amazon.com and available for order at your local bookstore. My fav is The Great Physicians RX to health and wellness.

      As for "dr approved folk remedies" that sounds like a sales pitch to me. I'd be leary of anything you see on an infomercial. Seeing if you can get a look at the book before buying it is wise. Kudos for not wanting to just order it online.
      BTW - if you order it through Barnes and Noble, I think they will let you look at it before purchasing. If they order it for you and you don't want it, they will just put it on the shelf to sell.

    Book on herbal lore, harvesting, storage, preparing remedies, etc.?
    I have a handful of books on herbal lore and have studied them sporadically as a hobby. But I'm getting more serious and would like to find a reference book that covers it all, from growing, identifying and collecting, to drying and making tinctures and tonics, to uses and recommendations, especially for (but not limited to) herbs of the northeast and upper midwest regions.

    • ANSWER:
      I don't know of any book that has all the information you seek in one volume. I can suggest a few books that will help in different areas. Culpeper's "Color Herbal" is a good book to start with. On identifying plants I suggest Petersons field guide on wildflowers of eastern/central North America,Peterson field guide of Edible wild plants and Newcombs Wildflower guide.You can also go to www.botanical.com to see M grieve's " A Modern Herbal" online.

  49. QUESTION:
    how do I get that book?
    I seen an infomercial one morning about how to get rid of every insect and/or pest. THey had a number to call to get the book but I was to tired to remember it and I havent seen it again (cause it was on at 4am) Does anyone know what I am talking about and have any idea how I can get that book.
    It was like a home remedy book for pests/insects?

    • ANSWER:
      The miracles advertised in infomercials rarely turn out to be of real value and are usually overpriced.

      Why don't you look at the books offered on Amazon.com. Do an amazon search for books relating to pest control and I'll bet you will get more results than you care to explore. You may even find the book you saw on TV. Many of the books on the Amazon Site will have "reader reviews" that can be a clue as to the value of the contents of the book.

      Good luck with your search.

    However, you're a no-name without a sales record--but you're a long-time resident of the area; having grown up around the store.

    How would you approach them to help sell your book? Pointers? Ideas? Collaborations?

Best Home Remedies For Spots

Home Remedies for Zits
Are you one of those individuals who have ever experienced the largest zit that comes at the very wrong time? It never fails to show up when you have to be somewhere important like a wedding or a first date. The zits seem to be ready to ruin your good looks right at the moment you need to make a best impression. Popping it only makes it worse instead of speeding up the healing process like you thought. This is why you need to try home remedies for zits to see if they can help rid your beautiful face of this worrisome problem.

Some of the home remedies for zits will work great for your acne. A few work better than others but they all are options you can try to use that are found in your kitchen cabinets. These special home remedies for zits include the following:

1. Dab toothpaste on the zit to help take out swelling and redness. Some individuals say it works for them.

2. Citrus fruit rubbed on the face has been one of the home remedies for zits if you apply the juice directly on the mark. By the following day, the zit should be all but gone, or at least improved. Try adding the citrus juice to some green tea and applying it to the face. Both are good to use separately but great together.

3. Fresh garlic is the one of the home remedies for zits that seems to be the favorite. It takes about four applications a day for the acne to fade. For long term care, it is the best but not so effective for spot treatments.

4. A cut up cucumber mixed with tea tree oil helps not only zits but other skin conditions. It is great for providing you with a healthier and clearer skin tone.

5. Your diet is the key to having a clear complexion. The book, Acne Free in 3 Days is one of the best for guiding you and showing you how to change the foods in your diet to make your acne improve.

      I suggest you to use Natural products. Ayurvedic products are natural and having no side effects. I am not ready to take risk over skin and on my face by using chemical and unnatural products which is commonly available in the market. I always prefer civettina an organic face powder as it can use by mixing with buttermilk for my dryskin and honey, milk for oily skin. Also if you don't have diabetic or other diseases you can mix with your own urine which will give immediate positive results.

    whats the best home remedy for spots? PLEASE HELP!?
    hi, i have alot of red spots on my cheek (theyjust feel like smoothe skin but they are red) , and i have used toothpaste (non-gel) but it doesnt seem to work. ive tried a cream of the doctor (the best he could give me) and it doesnt seem to be working.
    so now im looking for a home remedy.
    thanks
    :)

    • ANSWER:
      Look no further! This safe, natural remedy can completely get rid of them - not just diminish them. It has been handed down through many generations in our family. It really is a miracle cure. It quickly and permanently got of rid of my spots and discolorations even pronounced scars and warts. Secret is to massage them over and over quite vigorously and it simply RUBS THEM AWAY and forces a new clear skin to emerge. You may be skeptical but see my many Best Answers (spots scars, etc.)and positive comments from users. Massage on a daily basis preferably 30 minutes or even more a session. You can do more as skin adjusts. See improvements in about 5 to 7 days and much greater ones in about 2 to 3 weeks depending on how vigorously/how long you have made the massage. Soon after they will have gone. It also gave me a smooth, virtually blemish free, healthy, younger looking skin..
      Use any natural oil. I prefer olive as it is a modest cost, it quickly absorbs into skin and does not leave face oily. If you do a thorough Google search you will learn it's a good treatment for oily/acne prone skin. For best results, massage with a forward and back motion using finger tips and front and sides of fingers depending where on face you massage. A circular motion is less effective.
      Some skin clinics, beauticians may tell you to only massage gently - but there have been many on Answers who have used it and had only beneficial results. See my many Best Answers. If still hesitant, then apply just to the forehead or one area and see the results. Wish you the best.

      Stainless steel kitchen appliances look best when they're clean and shiny. To clean tough stains and cooking grease, and give them a dazzling shine, try the same detergent you would use when washing the dishes. One formulated to cut grease works especially well.This also works well for general kitchen cleaning.Waterless hand soap also works great as a polish, simply rub on, and polish - no rinsing...

  18. QUESTION:
    What is the best natural treatment for hair loss? ?
    I'm experiencing thinning of my hair and there's actually a coin sized bald spot on the center of my scalp. My hair is brittle and dry. Hence, I'm looking for the simplest and best home remedies/natural treatment. I've googled bout it but I wanted to hear the effects of the treatments form people who had tried the treatements before.

    • ANSWER:
      try this home remedies:

      Amla oil prepared by boiling dry pieces of amla in coconut oil is considered a valuable hair tonic. This is a very simplest and best natural remedy for hair loss.

      Mustard oil boiled with henna leaves is also useful in healthy growth of hair. About 250 grams of mustard oil should be boiled with 100 grams of henna leaves. This is another effective home remedy for hair loss.

      A fine paste made from pigeon pea or red gram can also be applied for treatment of baldness and hair loss. This is one of the effective home remedies for baldness.

      Apply a well prepared paste made from hot olive oil, honey, and 1 teaspoon of cinnamon powder before bath and leave it for 15 minutes. This is also effective home remedy for hair loss.

      A mixture of equal quantity of fresh amla juice and lime juice when used as a shampoo stimulates hair growth and prevents hair loss.

      One cup of lettuce and spinach juice taken daily prevents hair loss.

      Hope the information above helps.

  19. QUESTION:
    whats your best home remedy for zits/blemishes?
    i dont have really bad skin, however i get zits on my chin (below the corners of my mouth) I have a good diet, drink plenty of water, but i still get them, especially at 'that time of the month' or just before.

    Ive tried alot of things, i wash my face with proactive and have really good skin most of the time, but then i get them, and they hurt :(
    because i have good skin most of the time, i only need something that works on the spots when i get them, and works well, all the things on the market dont work for me.

    so, whats your best home remedy that you swear by?

    • ANSWER:
      I have the same kind of skin!

      What I do is wash with proactiv, and then when I have a breakout I do these steps.

      First, wash your face, then, if you have time, give you entire face a good steam. (By which I mean, boil some water, put it in a large mixing bowl and then put your face over the steam and cover your head with a towel, but make sure it isn't SO hot that the steam burns you.) But, by doing this it will open up your pores and clean them out.

      Next, use a clay mask over your breakout. This will dry it up. If you don't have a clay mask and you're really in a pinch, you could use some asprin crushed up with a little water to make a paste, or you can use honey, which kills germs, but a clay mask would be the best out of the three.

      Finally, get some sort of spot treatment for acne. Every one's skin reacts differently so I really can't recommend any one type that will work well, but test around and see what works. Dab that on your breakout and leave it on over night. This should really shorten the time it takes for the blemish to heal.

      Good luck!

  21. QUESTION:
    What's the best home remedy for acne..?
    I've had acne all over the right side of my chin and it's slowly getting worse, almost reaching the side of my mouth, and it's getting insanely irritating every day. I exfoliate in the shower every night before bed, but that doesn't seem to help out my case. I would have to say that i have (Semi-Oily) skin, not too oily or dry, kinda in between, to the point where i ALWAYS seem to end up with acne in the same spots! I'm going crazy because i don't have money to buy acne solution, and a home remedy is probably my ONLY solution. Can you guys suggest anything for me that you may have had results with in the past?

    P.S-
    I don't have honey.
    Some people on google have suggested that one.

    THANKS IN ADVANCE!!

    :) <3

    • ANSWER:
      Stop exfoliating! Also have any of you with bad acne heard of nuSkin. Check that out it is actually amazing. As for home remedies, i don't think there is anything you can do. I think the more you try the more you will irritate your skin and make it worse. I don't have much acne, but growing up with my sister who had it very bad I truly wish there was a home remedy that could take it all away. Good luck darling.

    Home remedies for mange?

She has bright blotchy spots on her hip & tail that she is constantly scratching & chewing at, some to the point of bleeding. & now I think my cat has contracted it as well, because her back is looking very similar to my dog, & she sleeps in my dogs bed quite often (I've heard the mites can live & breed in bedding.) However, I don't have the money to take both of them to the vet til next week at the earliest... So I'm looking for a way to soothe their poor skin at home until then. I've heard of using motor oil, baby oil, borax (what is that?) & even listeriene. What's the best at home remedy that's safe & most effective to use on both my cat & my dog?
    Bonnie I posted this once in Cats & once in Dogs, I don't think that's asking 'too much' by any means. If my question(s) bothers you SO much, I have a remedy for YOU- STOP READING THEM!!!
    Bonnie I posted this once in Cats & once in Dogs, I don't think that's asking 'too much' by any means. If my question(s) bothers you SO much, I have a remedy for YOU- STOP READING THEM!!!

    • ANSWER:
      Here is a website that has some home remedies but not all remedies can be used for both cats and dogs. Some things are toxic to cats but not dogs. http://petsbestrx.com/mange-news/mange-articles/home-remedy-for-mange/

      For the time being I would wash your dogs bedding on a daily basis and try to get at least one to them to the vet ASAP, some vets will also prescribe treatment for other pets without seeing them.

Do you know anything i can do to get rid of it/reduce it? im open to trying anything, creams, home remedies, special exercises, change of diet. Please help, im really greatful to any advice Xx

    • ANSWER:
      Exercises and dietary changes will not have any effect on acne. If shop brought preparations such as Clearasil are not having any effect then see your GP. A combination of an Tetracycline antibiotic (such as Minocycline or Lemecycline) used in conjunction with Benzonyl Peroxide usually works very well.

    Our doggie has been biting and itching a lot and is losing hair in places. We took him to the vet in early August and they scrapped him and found skin mites.

    NOW- He has hair loss in spots on his rear and on his back and now on the backs of his legs. Now they say it could be scabies. We are not rich and can't afford multiply maybe medicines for him or Vets that are money hungry.

    I have heard of these treatments to do at home--Will these work?
    -Borax & peroxide baths
    -Ivermectin from a feed store
    - Dermicil

      Rubbing alcohol dissolves latex paint. Just wipe it away. For dried latex paint, let it soak in alcohol a little, or rub with an alcohol-soaked Q-Tip, then wipe the paint away.

  36. QUESTION:
    Anybody have some home remedies for cats with fleas?
    My cat is got fleas i have done everything i know to do shampooed, the carpet stuff, the one spot stuff. Its not he high price stuff, maybe I need to know what woks best. I really cant afford to take to vet right now. I wll if i have to though.

    • ANSWER:
      I currently work for the SPCA. We offer just about everything under the sun at low cost. I would definently look around and find a local SPCA near you. First, flea preventatives such as shampoos, sprays and collars are a HUGE waste of money. Shampoo's are temporary and only kill the fleas that would be "currently" on him/her. Flea sprays can actually be toxic to your cat because felines clean themselves, they will lick the chemicals off them which can, like I said, be toxic to them and they can develop ulcers on their tounges. Flea collars generally only help with the area around the neck and over time the collar will "wear off" and not work. Especially the brand Hartz. Hartz flea preventatives should be pulled off the shelves, they are knows for selling flea preventative products that do more harm to animals than good. The best flea preventative (for example) is Advantage, which is applied to the back of the neck monthly, I use it and I have had absolutely no complaints. Also, depending on where you are applying the flea preventative might be the cause on why it is not working. Whenever applying flea preventative, especially on felines, always apply it to the back of the neck, right above the shoulder blades, so they cant lick it off them. Always bathe your pet before you apply the flea preventative and make sure he/she is dry, otherwise it wont work. Like I said, try and look around for your local SPCA and see if they have clinics that you could use, they are low cost and will save you TONS of money. I really hope this helps!!! I feel like I just wrote a novel haha. Good luck :)

  37. QUESTION:
    What is the best tried and true flea killing methods/home remedies/ products to use?
    I have an indoor dog with fleas.We have never had fleas before and we only have a maximum of 30 fleas in the house and on the dog now.We have had the fleas for a month. I don't think they are spreading. If so is there a way to tell? I have searched website after websites and nothing i've tried has worked quite like it says it would.. I use natural flea sprays on the house and dog, vacuumed, shampooed my dog several times, tried Borax, Baking soda, and salt on the carpets,cleaned all the bedding everyday, spot on, I have even Isolated her in a few rooms in the house so that the fleas won't spread at LEAST as bad, I have even gave her a little garlic because I've heard of this helping.
    Is there something I'm missing here? I have vigorously tried everything i've read and bought but it doesn't seem to be working. Does it just take a long time? If you have any GOOD or USEFUL advice I would gladly take it.
    If you have any other ideas i could try that would be appreciated.

    • ANSWER:
      Fleas are so annoying!

      You will need to throw out the "natural" way of treating these fleas, they need some strong chemicals.
      You can buy your dog Capstar which is a fast acting tablet that kills adult fleas in 24 hours it doesn't kill the larvae so i suggest buying one of these topical treatments: Frontline Plus, Advocate, Advantage, Revolution. These are topical treatments and spread over the body in about 48 hours and kill all stages of the flea lifecycle (personally i would recommend Frontline Plus)

      In terms of ridding your home of fleas it's slightly out of my speciality i only know how to treat dogs =]

      good luck hope this helps

Its the end of the season, i may get a few more trips in, and its not the best time of the year to shop around for gear. The real deals on 2007 equipment wont be for another 6 months (especially when you know the reps =P). What can I do to keep my feet in one spot? Just for a little longer? (Extra socks are a good idea, but defiantly aren’t the magic answer, especially with heel lift)

    Any creative ideas out there?

    • ANSWER:
      Custom fit orthodics are definitely a fantastic thing to have in any ski/snowboard boot! I highly recommend them as do almost every other instructor on my ski school. However they are very expensive :-/ and not as necessary for snowboarders as skiers although they definitely help.

      I am having heel slip issues with my boots right now and haven't found the best solution. I have been told I can try putting foam around the back of my ankles around your ackelies tenden or you can lift your foot inside your boot by placing something underneath your boot liner in the toe and heel area . Many shops will even give these (They are usually called heel lifts or toe lifts) out if you know the people that work there.

      Good luck.

  42. QUESTION:
    At home remedy for mange?
    I think my dog has mange. She has bright blotchy spots on her hip & tail that she is constantly scratching & chewing at, some to the point of bleeding. & now I think my cat has contracted it as well, because her back is looking very similar to my dog, & she sleeps in my dogs bed quite often (I've heard the mites can live & breed in bedding.) However, I don't have the money to take both of them to the vet til next week at the earliest... So I'm looking for a way to soothe their poor skin at home until then. I've heard of using motor oil, baby oil, borax (what is that?) & even listeriene. What's the best at home remedy that's safe & most effective to use on both my cat & my dog?
    WOW for people to treat animals so well you people sure do know how to talk to a person like shit! I asked because clearly, I do care about my animals, otherwise I wouldn't care about asking how to help them. Obviously no one read that I do not have the funds but I AM planning on taking them to the vet next week. My dog is a retired K9 that we rescued from being euthanized, so I think its safe to say we do care about her. We've only had her since Jan & when these symptoms 1st showed up the vet told us (when we had her shots) that she was just stressed & chewing on her leg as an outlet. Its gotten worse & now our cat is showing symptoms so clearly that's not completely true. By the way she eats Purina Dog Food.. 4 cups a day.

    What's the best way to get rid of spots?
    I don't normally get spots and when i do its only one or two but i've just finished my GCSE's and i'm starting to break out like crazy, i don't no if its from stress, because its getting warmer or whatever but its not good. I moisturise and exfoliate every other day but they don't stop!! I haven't tried anything yet because i don't want to waist my money but if anyone has any recommendation of creams, home remedies, facial scrubs or anything that has worked for you and someone you know please let me know thanks :)

    • ANSWER:
      Sensible diet, good hygiene and low stress should keep acne away. Try some great OTC products like Niapads, Cetaphil etc. Remember, the most effective treatment is one that is simple to use. For eg. cut a piece of Niapads, moisten it with water and place it on the yet to come to surface acne. Active ingredients penetrate skin and get rid of acne bacteria. Routine use of Niapads helps exfoliate, open clogged skin pores and gets rid of acne in one simple step without drying your skin. Contains Lavender oil – well known moisturizer. Niapads worked for me, try it.

    Best acne scar fade cream/natural home remedy for oily&acne prone skin?
    i have these black, flat discolored scars all over my face from old pimples. They are just black spots and are not the normal scars that come out of the skin(they arent raised scars). but anyways, what is the best fade cream that i can buy to help fade the scars a bit? i am also open to and would rather try natural things to make them fade (i have already tried honey and lemon so please suggest others).

    and btw i know everyone's skin is different, and that some products might not work, but please just tell me the best product you used, because what worked for you may work for me also.
    THANKS
    and bt

    • ANSWER:
      St Ives' invigorating scrub can be used once-twice a week to lighten and remove dead skin (in this case, it will lighten the scars). Retin-A is also a good medicated cream (But make sure, it can be used for you) as this medicine was prescribed by the doc. for my skin type. Make sure you work out because when you sweat, this is when the skin flushes the old and toxic sweat with skin layers and a new skin is formed. You could also use lemon juice on the scars to make it lighter.
      Cheers :)

  45. QUESTION:
    What are the best prescription meds for Cystic Acne?
    I was diagnosed with Lupus in March and have been very sick. I have had symptoms though for 7 years. Recently I have started having whiteheads all over my face that re-occur all day and over a dozen spots of cystic acne on my jawline, neck and chin. The cystic acne takes at least 2 weeks for each lesion to go away, but by that time there are several new ones. It is painful and ruining my skin. I saw another post on here that said they did not think Lupus had any relation to the cystic acne problem, but I am sure it does. I have never had acne like this in all my life, and whiteheads are an over abundance of white cells which makes sense because of the immune system issues with Lupus. I have tried all home remedies and over the counter meds and nothing is even touching this. Is there a very good prescription medicine for cystic acne that works with Lupus and does not have a bunch of ugly side effects,& that is not steroid based as I cannot take those? Thanks for any input you may have

    • ANSWER:
      Wow I'm sorry to hear this, I guess if it is lupus related go to your doctor or a dermatologist, they can help you more than anything, keep your face clean by washing it twice a day. I'd recommend going to lush, its a store with only natural products so it helps a lot. Drink water, and keep a healthy diet. If this persists, laser isn't a bad way to go. Good luck.

    how do i lose belly fat fast

    • ANSWER:
      Long nails tip 1: Don't use your nails as tools.

      Rather than using your nails use other parts of your hand, or a pen, to perform tasks like dialing the phone. Don't pick, poke or scrape with your nails and especially avoid opening soft drink cans with your nails.

      Long nails tip 2: Wear gloves.

      Detergents are particularly harsh on your nails and can cause splitting and peeling. Wear gloves when washing dishes or cleaning. You should also wear gloves when gardening to protect your nails from infection and prevent dryness, damage, and loss of natural oils.

      Long nails tip 3: Don't bit your nails or pick at your cuticles.

      Aside from the obvious reason of biting shortening your nails these habits can damage the nail bed. Even a minor cut alongside your nail can allow bacteria or fungi to enter the nail bed and cause an infection. Remember your nails grow slowly so an injured nail retains signs of damage for several months.

    Is there a general home remedy for pests in my garden?
    I am low income and am trying to do my best to beat all of the little insect critters that breed so well in garden settings. But something is eating my grapevines and my roses. I never see anything but the aftermath(holes, chew trails, and brown spots/dying leaves). Is there a solution I could make from household items that I could spray on my plants to help prevent/deter this?

    • ANSWER:
      The good news is that there are a lot of natural ways to control pests. The bad news is that there is no single one that fixes all of your problems organically. You can buy seven dust if you want to use a chemical, as that kills a large variety of pests. But if you want to go the organic route then you really need to find out what bugs you have. Even if you don't see them, they will leave clues as to what they are. From there you can make natural sprays or put plants in that they dont like, etc. I will give you a site to help you figure out what you may have and how to deal with them. Good Luck!

  49. QUESTION:
    Do oil home remedies work for rabbit ear mites?
    Okeydokey, so I am babysitting my school's bunny for the holiday break and I am sick of all the ignorant people in the class doing nothing when he seems to have some health problems... I knew he had mites, but not this bad... He has it in both ears, I think, and one ear has a giant owie in it (a big scabby sore) and yellowish pus-ish flakes further down in it. He also looks like he has some mites on his body because he has like an infinite amount of dandruff, and accumulated skin flakes and irritated spots under his fur. He also has a "wet" owie on his face under his eye. So I wanted to do something about it but the pet store didn't have any medicine for rabbits and we can't afford to take him to the vet. Should I try the cat medicine? Or does the "massage in warm baby/vegetable oil" thing work? I want to try something but I don't know what to do... What is the best treatment for ear and fur mites? Can I use an antibiotic ointment? And am I supposed to wash out his ears too or just wait until the mites appear to be dead? Also, he has never been outside as far as I know but should I sanitize his cage anyway?

    Also, he eats only alfalfa pellets and his pee is kind or "creamy"... Does that mean he has too much calcium? What do I do? I've been feeding him more fresh veggies since we've had him :)
    He also has like inch long toenails and it looks like the blood vessel goes nearly all the way out. I tried to cut a little but I can only get off like a millimeter before he flinches because it hurts... Should I just try to cut them anyway and stop the bleeding if it does?

    Thanks for any advice! :)

      I read through this book today for a few hours while at my Aunt's House today and I have never been one for these ''home remedies'' etc. I found the book extremely well layed out, for one thing. You can look things up by either problem(insomnia, hair - loss, coloring, etc, arthritis, cold, headaches, etc) or by ingredient (flax oil, honey, lemon juice) which I found to be very helpful. I had a list of things I wanted to find out how to cure or rather, help ease the discomfort. I also had a few ingredients I wanted to look up to find out what they could be used for, so the double purpose of that was really helpful.

      The book is also written by two sisters who have a sense of humor and who integrate it into parts of the recipes. There are medicine/remedie recipes for your body, but there are also a few really awesome homemade chicken soup, salsa, recipes. I was actually fascinated by how much information was in here and it wasn't boring at all to read! "

    If you get the information off someone that ok but if you find the answer in a book/website please state the book/URL

    Thank you!

    • ANSWER:
      "there are two major form of indigestion," says Michael A. Klaper, M.D., a nutritional medicine specialist in Pompano Beach, Florida, and director of the Institute of Nutritional Education and Research, an organization based in Manhattan Beach, California, that teaches doctors about nutrition and its relationship to disease. "One is in the upper tract: a stomach filled with acid, which is usually the result of plopping a lot of protein into stomach and the stomach responding with a big gush of acid to digest it. For that kind of indigestion. It's a matter of not eating protein-rich foods too late in the day. So if you must have meat, have it for lunch, and stick with pasta for dinner.

      "The other form of indigestion is due to swallowed air in the lower gastrointestinal tract, and that's often a matter of how fast you're eating. For that, the best thing is to slow down, chew each mouthful at least 10 to 15 times, avoid drinking with meals and minimize talking while eating," Dr. Klaper.
      Ayurveda:
      According to Ayurveda practitioner, bay leaf helps kindle agni, or gastric fire, one of the most vital elements of good digestion. To relieve indigestion, try steeping 1/2 teaspoon of crushed or ground bay leaf (available in most health food stores) in a cup of hot water for ten minutes, suggests Vasant Lad, B.A.M.S., M.A.Sc., director of the Ayurvedic Institute in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Strain the tea so that there's no bay leaf in it, add a pinch of cardamom and drink the tea after eating.

      Herbal Therapy:
      Traditional herbal remedies for indigestion include peppermint, ginger and chamomile teas, all of which you can find in a tea bag form in most health food stores, says Varro E.Tyler, Ph.D professor of pharmacognosy at Purdue University in West Lafaette, Indiana. He suggests drinking a cup of one of these teas after every meal.

    How to repel book worms in a "home remedy" way?
    I mean real worms ok !

    • ANSWER:
      To kill them, freeze the books for a week.

      To keep the away,

      To prevent book worm infestations, you can use such substances as camphor or naphthalene in the bookcase or place pieces of linen soaked with essence of turpentine, camphor, or an infusion of tobacco behind the books, especially in the place where there is a high concentration of insects. When the smell dies, repeat the process. You may also scatter some fine pepper on the shelf. The smell of the pepper penetrating into the shelf may have the same effect as the soaked linen pieces.

    My acne is so baddddd!!!!!!!! Home remedies???? Anything??? help.?
    I wash my face w/ proactive every morning and every nite. I have tried almost every acne medicine/cleanser in the book, so I am not really lookin for another $ waster. I never eat greasy food anymore. And its still so bad!? It is kind of embarassing, because most of my friends dont have this acne and I have been fighting it for years!
    Anyways, If there are any home remedies or tips that would be AMAZING.
    Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      Acne SUCKS! I hate it.
      One thing I've found to work for me is putting rubbing alcohol on the pimples.
      It kills the bactaria and drys the pimples out, reducing their size. And the bactaria killing keeps it from coming back. The downfall is that the alcohol drys your face out, so I suggest purchasing an oil free face moustirizer (mine is by neutrogena) and applying that in the morning and at night.
      Hope I helped and good luck!

  23. QUESTION:
    What is the name of this book?
    The book is a home remedy book written by 2 sisters. I seen it on paid programming the other morning and can not remember who wrote it or what it is called. Does anyone have any ideas?

    • ANSWER:
      that info is no enough. there are many stories about 2 sisters.
      Little Women has 4 sisiters.

      what are u talking about.

  24. QUESTION:
    how do I get that book?
    I seen an infomercial one morning about how to get rid of every insect and/or pest. THey had a number to call to get the book but I was to tired to remember it and I havent seen it again (cause it was on at 4am) Does anyone know what I am talking about and have any idea how I can get that book.
    It was like a home remedy book for pests/insects?

    • ANSWER:
      The miracles advertised in infomercials rarely turn out to be of real value and are usually overpriced.

      Why don't you look at the books offered on Amazon.com. Do an amazon search for books relating to pest control and I'll bet you will get more results than you care to explore. You may even find the book you saw on TV. Many of the books on the Amazon Site will have "reader reviews" that can be a clue as to the value of the contents of the book.

      Good luck with your search.

    "Jude's Herbal Home Remedies" Miracle Soap?
    I purchased the book "Jude's Herbal Home Remedies" and was looking through it when I came across the miracle soap. It seems like it would be good, but has anyone made it? Did it work good, and was it worth while? Also, could you tell me where you got the ingredients for it?

    • ANSWER:
      I think this is the recipe in this g00gle book preview:
      http://books.google.co.uk/books?id=8e_7EbWGFVkC&pg=PA90&lpg=PA90&dq=Jude%27s+Herbal+Home+Remedies+miracle+soap[&source=bl&ots=8DDqxph7AW&sig=fmzjMbLDXLJGtEFOB5z6vVfMvt0&hl=en&ei=Mw98StqyGdmgjAefraGIBw&sa=X&oi=book_result&ct=result&resnum=1#v=onepage&q=&f=false

      The oils you can find in supermarkets and just buy the cheapest as you don't need posh stuff for soap. Coconut oil might be difficult to locate if you depend on supermarkets. For coconut oil: you can try Asian stores as I have bought it from one before and it was quite cheap and you don't need posh stuff for soap. Lye crystals might be difficult to locate but you could try a hobby shop or a local hardware store that might stock them or if not might be able to get hold of them for you. Be sure to tell them what you want it for too. Be careful around lye as it is caustic.

      edit:
      Do a lot of reading on soap making before you being as I read this on wikipedia under the sub-heading cold process:

      "A cold-process soapmaker first looks up the saponification value of the fats being used on a saponification chart, which is then used to calculate the appropriate amount of lye. Excess unreacted lye in the soap will result in a very high pH and can burn or irritate skin. Not enough lye, and the soap is greasy. Most soap makers formulate their recipes with a 4-10% discount of lye so that all of the lye is reacted and that excess fat is left for skin conditioning benefits." .... quoted verbatim.
      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Soap

      Be careful and do the research so you do not end up with something that will burn your skin. Test the soap with pH strips first to be sure it is not of a too high pH that might burn. Perfect the recipe until you get the pH right. Ideally soaps these days if to be used for bathing should have a near neutral pH as that is what is kinder to the skin...some shop bought soaps may fall under this category [dove baby for instance may be pretty much neutral pH] but most are perhaps a little too alkaline for the skin.
      end of edit...

      Hope that helps.

  29. QUESTION:
    what actually works to get rid of a wart?
    I have had this small wart on my toe for over two years, and it won't go away. My doctor just said "it's small, try duct tape" and I tried the airtight-aspirin thing in a home remedies book, all it did was make my skin so sensitive anything touching it would rip it off. I've tried using the Dr. Scholls wart freezing thing 4 times, no luck at all. I have run out of ideas!

    • ANSWER:
      My kids have troublesome warts that won't go away also.
      I just read that banana peels cure warts quickly. Cut a banana peel to fit wart and put white side on wart and tape on for 12 hours and start over with a new peel.

      I have not tried it yet since the kids ate all the bananas and threw the peels before I had a chance to try.

  30. QUESTION:
    Does using extra virgin olive oil on your face really make acne go away?
    I read it in a home remedies book, but I'm not brave enough to try it yet... It might make my skin more oily, however the extra virgin is supposed to be the key and actually absorb the oil in your face, what do you think?

    • ANSWER:
      You have been seriously and sadly mistaken. There is not a shred of research that shows any clinical effectiveness of the topical or oral route of extra virgin olive oil on acne prone skin. With that being said, you should not rely on this ingredient to treat your acne, but you can surely eat it for its health benefits. I have never heard of an oil absorbing another oil (I am under the impression that you mean making your facial oil disappear). I do know, however, oils can "blend" homogeneously with other oils because of their similar structural chemistry.

      Advice: please throw away that home remedies book or burn it in the fireplace during the winter. Get educated with the facts of (extra virgin) olive oil from accredited sources that relies only on published scientific research.

      Here are the cold-hard facts: acne is caused by the presence of sebum and the propionibacterium acnes. The bacteria feeds off the oil, which is secreted in the copious sebaceous glands found all over your body, and produces inflammatory byproducts that leads to the formations of blemishes. You see, regardless of quality, olive oil is not considered an antibacterial. But, there are anti-inflammatory agents in olive oil that can reduce the inflammation caused by acne.

      Topically, it does have some skin benefits, but it is best suited for dry-to-very-dry skin types. Olive oil functions as an emollient (it is a mixture of a variety of healthy fatty acids) that can ameliorate dry skin. Olive oil also has anti-inflammatory (e.g., oleocanthal and oleuropein) and antioxidant (tocopherols and beta-carotene) constituents that can reduce facial redness and scavenge free radicals. In sum, using olive oil or a product concentrated with olive oil is like a double-edge sword for oil-to-very-oily skin as it may reduce inflammation, yet worsen blackhead formations, facial shininess, and acne. Another thing: you would not want to slather purely olive oil on your skin to obtain its benefits because of the pungent smell, especially from the high quality extra virgin olive oil. Unless you do not mind smelling like a salad dressing, then by all means! But, I say you eat it instead.

      Orally, it there is research that a daily diet with olive oil can reduce bad cholesterol as well as regulate blood clotting. There are other research support a diet with olive oil and you can learn more with the sources that I provided below.

      Advice: Olive oil goes rancid quickly due to light and air degradation when you open the bottle to use it after just a few months. Thus, it is best to buy a small bottle and store in a cool and dark cabinet.

  31. QUESTION:
    Home remedy for abscessed tooth and swollen jaw?
    Apparently, dental insurance isn't covered by our medical insurance plans through work. Fab.
    My boyfriend has very, very soft teeth (runs in the family) and his back teeth easily break, subsequently becoming infected and painful. No amount of brushing, flossing, and rinsing with mouth wash prevents this for him.
    Besides the fact that we don't have dental insurance, we are very holistic people and try to go as natural as possible. I did give him some ibuprofen for swelling. He is exhausted (probably infection related) and I made him go back to bed. He has a hot wash cloth on his swollen jaw.
    My home remedies book lists clove oil, a hot ginger compress, chili peppers, as well as others for a toothache, but what about an abscessed tooth? Will the same remedies work? FYI, staying away from the peppers.
    I've heard clove oil burns at first; is it worth the burn? I've heard of biting on dry tea bags, but what kind? Ginger? Would any tea work, like chamomile or green tea? What have you tried that would work?
    If his tooth and jaw do not get better, looking like it is Urgent Care time.

    • ANSWER:
      None of that will work on an infection. If you have an urgent care center that will at least prescribe antibiotics, get there now. If he would like to keep his tooth, find a low-cost dentist willing to do some financing, or get to a dental school that might offer free care. Beyond that, if the tooth is too shattered to do a root canal and crown, it might not be salvageable. Pliers are both cheap and holistic.

    My dog is very itchy and that is not caused by fleas and mites. He scratches a lot that his belly is now very red. I have booked an appointment with the vet on Sat morning. Any home remedies in these days to relief the itchy and pain?????

      Or you can google it as a site specific search by adding this after your search term "site:yahoo,com" without the quotes. For example,

    • ANSWER:
      These are ways to quickly cure a pimple:

      1. Wash you skin thoroughly and pat it dry with clean towel.
      2. Wrap an ice cube in a washcloth and hold it over the spot for a minute or two; it'll help bring down the swelling.
      3. Dip the end of a cotton swab into some diluted tea tree oil (available at any pharmacy, and trust me, this oil was meant for the skin!) and dot a tiny amount directly into the pimple.
      4. Leave it alone to heal. Don't pop, pinch, or squeeze pimples, it will only make it worse.

      Also, you can dab a bit of toothpaste, alcohol, or vinegar to pimple before going to bed each night. When you wake up the pimple will be gone. This is because toothpaste, alcohol, and vinegar will dry the oil out of pimples.

      This works SOOOO well! I'm not kidding, and you got to try it!
      And, tomato juice does work... you cut the tomato into slices and use it like a cleansing pad; rub it around your face and on pimples and pat dry with towel. And oh yeah, lemon juice works really well too. Just dab a bit on pimples and skin and pat dry.

    Real eczema remedies that have worked for you?
    I am an eczema sufferer and I was wondering if any of you guys out there have effective home remedies to cure it or any happy-ending stories about your experience with treating it?

    I'm sick of using these steroid creams because their effect fades away overtime. I am also sick of surfing the internet only to find 'ex-eczema sufferers' who "understand your painful situation and know the cure just for you!" but hypocritically end up forcing you to pay to buy their book.

    • ANSWER:
      Hi, you can try one of the natural treatments available on the Internet – some of them do work. For my eczema I use herbal cream by Champori quite successfully. It takes just few weeks to clear the spots and then they stay clear for months on end.
      Try it: Champori doesn’t need a prescription and comes with money back guarantee so if it doesn't work for you - it's free.

    mastitis, any home remedies?
    As of yesterday I have the symptoms of a minor case of mastitis (fever less then 101 and pain moderate) but it has gone past a clogged duct. I have been putting warm compresses on it, I have been resting, and have been nursing the baby on it as often as possible. I am curious if anyone knows of any alternative home remedies as my doctor is booked thru November and it is the weekend....I do not want to have to go to urgent care unless absolutely necessary.

    I am also allergic to penicillin and would hate to go on antibiotics because I wont be able to nurse with the type that I would be prescribed.

    Thanks to all, I appreciate your help.

    • ANSWER:
      Everyone gave you great answers, but if you get flu like symptoms, fever, chills, feeling like you have been hit by a mack truck then its time to go to urgent care.
      I'm sure they can find a medication that's not penicillin but still safe to take while nursing. I don't remember what it was they prescribed me.

  41. QUESTION:
    home remedies for excessive sweating?
    Hi,
    I've been researching on-line a bit about excessive sweating and i haven't found really any good solutions. I found some things about hyperhidrosis but every sight told me to either by a different deoderant/antiperperant, or buy a book on it, or wear those cotton protection underarm things. Well, I haven't really told anyone about my problem. The other day though I needed more deoderant and my mom was with me so I asked if I could get one that said "Clinical Protection". And she said, do you sweat alot? And i said yes. So we were about to get it when she noticed it had alluminum in it and wouldn't get it for me. She said that everyone sweat's more when their going through puberty and that was the end of the conversation. I have used DOVE, BAN, and DEGREE, deoderant/antipersperant and none of them work. I am not allowed to get anything with alluminum in it. I'm not going to buy a book, because I haven't really ever told anyone about this, and I don't want to make a huge deal about it and get a book (please don't respond "don't be embarrases", because I really don't think it will help anything, even though I know your probably just trying to be kind) Also, I can't buy those underarm things, because of a few reasons. I am almost 15 so I am in high school. Normally my problem happens at school, but it can happen other places to. But it ALWAYS happens at school and its so annoying! I wear sweaters and looser T-shirts JUST because of my problem. I can't wear the cotton things, because you would see them. I can't wear tighter shirts at the sleeves because i would get stains. Also, I DESPISE the feel of when they get wet which is almost every day so those things wouldn't help anything. I realize that I haven't given much room to do anything about my problem but if you have ANY home remedies or any suggestions, please tell me! THANKS

    • ANSWER:
      I go to say that you are making this question rather hard to answer. It seems to me that you may have some kind of nervous condition, or on borderline with it. Relax okay? Now listen, your Mom was right not to let you buy an item that contains aluminum. Because it can lead to, alzheimer's. Memory loss. The aluminum gets into your brain, not good. And yes that is what in part causes this.

      Your sweating, i can only tell you that i sympathize with you. I had that same problem, (not as bad though) when i was your age. And yes it affected me more at school. Blocking your pores really is not the answer though. One thing i know of is this. There are pills you can take that will make you smell good even when you sweat much. deodorants area joke. Only because it is very hard or next to impossible to find without all kinds of stuff you don't want in them..

      Try a google search on, Pills for sweet sweat. It,s a great start. Look over all of the products there. I was just there for you okay? Your going to like this.. Best to you..

      peppermint tea is great to calm down an unhappy tummy, it's what i use when i'm feeling dodgy. and when i looked it up on google to make sure i was telling you the right thing (don't want to be giving wrong advice if you're writing a novel!) i found this page with a couple of other remedies on it too if you'd like to take a look at it: http://www.mothernature.com/Library/Bookshelf/Books/41/88.cfm and also http://www.myhomeremedies.com/topic.cgi?topicid=145

      and also camomile tea is used to calm people down when they're stressed, it's not exactly for nausea but more for the calming feeling it brings.

      good luck with your writing :) xx

  44. QUESTION:
    What are some home remedies you?
    Just a fun poll like question.

    Wondering what are some home remedies you use with your horse(s)?
    Or "different" remedies?

    Can be for anything! Swollen hocks? Infected cut? Emotional horse? etc.

    For example: My rescue mare Shasta was having a hard time settling in to her new environment. Being handled and ridden as much as she was. I used Bach Flower Essences on her and it worked super well. I have book on them and it tells you which essence to use for which "problem" and all you do is put it on some grain/treat etc. I saw results within days of using it.

    My friend has this magnetic wand she uses on her horses for practically anything. Like her one horse had an unexplainable swollen eye. Noone could figure out why is was so swollen. She tried everything the vets told her too. With the wand you do small clockwise circles over top of the area you want and literally within a month the horses eye went down considerablly.

    What are your "secrets"?

    • ANSWER:
      I have a FANTASTIC home remedy ointment for small scratches, scabs, mud fever.. anything, really!
      You mix about two tablespoons of sulphur powder with a block of condensed oil. The sulphur kills any bacteria, and the oil seals the cut to keep out dirt , grime and water.
      I use this stuff by the load on all the horses. It's really fantastic. Cheap too!

      We used it on a mare who had itched her tail out. After putting out remedy on her, she already has new growth and has stopped itching! Very exciting!

      Other then that, I use a lot of rescue remedy for stress, and Nox, which is good for travel sickness.

      Another great 'secret' is a home-made poultice we use for wrapping hoof injuries. Wall separation, puncture wounds.. etc.
      We use shavings of soap, raw sugar and betadine all mixed together. It draws out all the yucky bacteria and the soap keeps it clean and dry. The betadine is for actually killing the drawn out bacteria.
      We used that poultice on a horse with Septic Osteoitis. He was very close to having to have his whole sole removed. Instead we used this poultice as well as soaking in Epsom Salts, and it cleared up in a few months.
      Another great thing for hoof wounds is ostrich or emu oil mixed with beeswax. Great for seedy toe!

      Those are all my home remedies. You should definitely try them out! I would recommend them to anyone!

Natural Treatments

Natural Treatments for Hyperthyroidism
Hyperthyroidism is the condition in which, there is increased amount of the thyroid hormone in the body. This is generally due to over-activity of the thyroid gland in the human body. Thyroid gland is the gland that is situated at front side of the neck somewhere nearer to the voice-box. The gland play important role in the metabolism of the body. Metabolism is the process by which the body converts food particles into the consumable form and release the energy for its routine functions. Hyperthyroidism should be treated as early as possible and fortunately, we have natural treatments for hyperthyroidism that can effectively treat condition without producing any side or harmful effects.

In hyperthyroidism, the metabolism is highly affected and body has faster digestion and assimilation of the food. Whatever the cause, hyperthyroidism causes many problems in the body and it becomes necessary to treat it before it turns into any complications, which in turn, becomes difficult to treat.

Apart from radioactive iodine therapy, surgical removal of the thyroid gland and anti-hyperthyroid drugs, there are some other natural and safe way to treat hyperthyroidism and all those symptoms that are related to the disease. There have been continuous researches performed in order to know about the role of various herbs and natural therapies to treat hyperthyroidism. Research confirms that the traditional wisdom gives favorable results in the condition and hence, they are to be evaluated further (Auf'mkolk M, Ingbar JC, Kubota K, et al. 'Extracts and auto-oxidized constituents of certain plants inhibit the receptor-binding and the biological activity of graves' immunoglobulins'. Endocrinology 1985; 116:1687-1693)
Some of the herbs have favorable effect for hyperthyroidism. For instance, Lycopus europea, is useful treating hyperthyroidism. There are some clinical trials and studies suggest that bugleweed can reduce thyroid hormone as it increases the levels of TSH, the hormone that stimulates the thyroid gland and orders it to produce thyroid hormone). The herb also impairs the thyroid hormone synthesis. Another effective treatment includes L-Carnitine. This is an amino acid that blocks the effects of thyroid gland that is over-active. It blocks the entry of excess thyroid hormones into the liver cells' nucleus, neurons and many other bodily structures that are targeted by excessive thyroid hormones.

Some of the naturopaths suggest trying magnet therapy and reflexology that can be very helpful treating hyperthyroidism. Acupressure and acupuncture also play important role in treating various endocrine disorders including hyperthyroidism. These are typical Chinese system of medicines that describe that our body has various acupoints that are regulators for the body's negative and positive energies. In diseased condition, negative energy is more than positive and treating such acupoints in a special way can balance those energies and can cure various health ailments including hyperthyroidism.

Some of the health experts suggest taking Vitamin supplements. Vitamins such as B12 and C significantly restore body hormones and enzymes including thyroid excessive hormones. Vitamin B12 depletion is occasionally considered as the factor giving raise to hyperthyroidism and its related symptoms.

    What are natural treatments for depression that work?
    I refuse to take anti-depressants, been on them once, never again. Ever since coming off them I have not been the same, my depression has gotten even worse.

  2. QUESTION:
    What are some natural treatments for chronic ear infections in dogs?
    My dog has had chronic yeast infections in his ears for years. My vet has given me tons of different drops, antibiotics, etc. but nothing works. The infection will go away for a few weeks and then come back. Are there any "natural" treatments?

    • ANSWER:
      Diet change plus appropriate antibiotic for an adequate length of time, followed by weekly use of Zymox cleanser. The Zymox products are enzyme-based, and kind of "eat" yeasts, bacteria, ear debris and whatever other junk is in there. It is the best stuff ever! You do not want to combine either the Zymox cleanser or Zymox Otic (a stronger formula for treatment of minor infections) with antibiotics, since the antibiotics will "kill" the enzymes. I purchase Zymox products from http://www.vetamerica.com , and you can sometimes buy them at vets' offices.

  3. QUESTION:
    What feed supplements/natural treatments are good for spooky/nervous horses?
    I have a pony who is very spooky and nervous last summer i used a supplement in his feeds which really helped him stay calm. But which brand would you say was best? And also do you know of any other natural treatments that my help my pony? Thanks

    • ANSWER:
      I'm not sure about supplements, but sacking him out would REALLY help.

      Basically, get a bunch of scary objects (tarps, plastic bags, empty water bottles, ropes, etc), and scare him with them. You have to do it slowly, though, or he'll come out worse off than he was. Take him in a round pen or arena with a halter and a lead rope on. Bring an object closer and closer to him, until he gets scared. Then stop. Wait for him to calm down, and bring it closer. When he gets scared again, stop. And so on. Eventually you should be able to rub the objects all over his body, toss the tarp over his back, and throw the ropes all over him. Just be sure not to rush him or he'll just be even more scared than he was before you started. Also, make sure you let him walk or jump away if he wants to. If he tries to get away, just stop coming closer until he holds still again. If you try to make him stand still, you'll just scare him more.

      Here's a good article on it:
      http://www.ultimatehorsesite.com/info/sackingout.html

      My gelding was abused before I got him, and he was afraid of EVERYTHING. I sack him out every once in a while.... every few months or so, and it works really well.

  5. QUESTION:
    Why do doctors overlook natural treatments and instead use prescription medications for most ailments?
    Doctors frequently overlook natural treatments like vitamins, supplements, and lifestyle changes and instead prescribe megadoses of prescription meds. Why do they do this? Is it financial? Is it what they've been taught or is Western medicine just plain more effective?

    • ANSWER:
      This is a good question. I will try to answer you the best I can based upon my own life experience. I have worked as a Pharm Tech for a major pharmeceutical chain. I also have varied experience as a Medical Assistant for the past 25 years. I am now a Certified Massage Therapist with my own practice.

      Working in doctors offices, I have seen that they do suggest lifestyle changes such as quitting smoking, changing diet, beginning exercising. I have seen doctors suggest vitamin therapy and suggest that the patient can research for themselves herbal rememdies, but of course, to consult the doctor before beginning any herbal remedy. I have also seen this working as a Pharm Tech - people coming in asking where the best calcium supplement is at or nicorette because Doc said so. The reason why doctors CANNOT suggest any specific herbal rememdy is because of insurance liability because of the inconclusive results of testing done on herbals. As time progresses, the tests are more conclusive such as: St. John's Wort will make one sensitive to the sunlight and mess up birth control pills; don't take garlic or vitamin E if you are also taking a blood thinner. As previously stated, most pharmaceuticals are derived from plants, just refined and extremely concentrated into pill form. A very small percentage is actually chemically/lab made. Most people want a quick fix for whatever ails them. American Lifestyles such as the workplace don ot support a person when they are ill so the patient insists they have to go back to work ASAP to help pay the bills or face being fired. Just ask anybody who has had to go through cancer and chemo therapy!(Shame on Corporate America!) They also don't want to be told that they screwed up their bodies by making poor lifestyle choices, basically refusing to take responsibility for their own lives. As a massage therapist, I still see it, almost weekly. Someone will come in, claiming they've "tried everything" and don't really expect massage to help them anyways, not caring or trying to understand how massage fits into a healthy lifestyle.

      As a holistic practioneer, I view Western Medicine as complamentary to a healthy lifestyle. Western Medicine scientists and doctors have tried to "improve" on what Mother Nature has provided for us. Both Western Medicine and Eastern Philisophy and Holistic Lifestyle choices all have their place, but all work best when working together. It should never be a debate about whether one form is better than another.

  7. QUESTION:
    Are there natural treatments for infertility?
    I have a hormonal imbalance so I don't have my period every month. Are there any natural treatments that can help make me ovulate?

    • ANSWER:

  8. QUESTION:
    What do you "detoxify" yourself of "toxins" in natural treatments?
    So those natural cure and treatments talk about detoxifying yourself of toxins, but they never seem to actually say what these toxins are, yet people still believe it. What is it that you have to get rid of out of your system.

    • ANSWER:
      Yes, while there are known specific toxins that can potentially make their way into the food and water supply, that is not usually what is meant by Alties. "toxins" refers to a broad category of undefined substances that some people feel are responsible for an equally broad category of non-specific symptoms. There is a lot of scare mongering, and lots of nasty products for sale to get rid of various toxins. There is no evidence that any of them do anything in particular other than give you the runs.

      It is just a part of the growing Altie mythology, really. Toxins, Big Pharma, conspiracy theories, the vanished Golden Age, life energy....etc. Not much of it makes much sense, and it doesn' really fit together in any kind of coherent story....so it's kind of like The Bible in that way.

      There recently was a good article on the topic at the always timely and excellent Science Based Medicine
      http://www.sciencebasedmedicine.org/?p=3193

      I see Rhianna beat me to it.....again.

      ---------------------------------------------
      EDIT
      Aristo has posted some data which is about actual real toxins. There absolutely is a concern about herbicides, pesticides, antibiotics, heavy metals etc in the food chain.
      But....there is no evidence that this is what Alties are refering to when they talk about "toxins"...since nothing is actually measured...and no evidence that any of their magical "detoxes" do anything at all...and specifically no evidence that they deal with any of the toxins listed.

      So, "these factors" do not actually answer the question. But thanks for playing.

  9. QUESTION:
    Evidence for the successful use of natural treatments in early stages of diabetic gangrene?
    There are instances in many diseases where natural treatments are better or just as good as conventional medicine.

    I was after scientific articles displaying evidence for natural treatments in gangrene...of course, taking into account the co-use of conventional medicine such as antibiotics.

    • ANSWER:
      The only treatment for Gangrene, is amputation. If it is Gangrene the tissue is dead and there is no blood flow. antibiotics are useless at that point.
      The best treatment is prevention. Listen to your Dr, learn about the disease, eat right, exercise and live.

  11. QUESTION:
    Anybody know any natural treatments for stomach ulcers?
    I do have a stomach ulcer but doctors just use acid reducers and that type of stuff. Are there any natural treatments that relieve or even stop stomach ulcers?

    • ANSWER:
      I found a wonderful article from eHow on stomach ulcers. I used to have ulcers myself, and most of these remedies really do help.

      Here is the link to the article:
      http://www.ehow.com/how_2099314_treat-stomach-ulcers-natural-remedies.html?ref=fuel&utm_source=yahoo&utm_medium=ssp&utm_campaign=yssp_art

      1. Increase your intake of fresh fruits and vegetables, particularly juices. A healthy raw food diet is the most important ingredient in natural remedies, particularly those effecting digestion. It is important that you eat foods that your body can easily digest, ensuring that you receive all of the vitamins and minerals your body need to maintain balance.

      2. Limit the triggers that cause hyperacidity in the stomach to prevent and soothe stomach ulcers. Things such as spicy foods, alcohol, coffee, tobacco and overeating can increase the levels of hydrochloric acid in the stomach, causing and worsening peptic ulcers.

      3. Eat bananas, one of Mother Earth's best natural remedies for stomach ulcers. Bananas neutralize the hydrochloric acid in the stomach, reducing the painful symptoms of peptic ulcers. Eat two bananas with a glass of milk three times a day to soothe acid reflux and prevent further aggravation.

      4. Make an infusion of wood apple leaves to relieve pain and discomfort caused by stomach ulcers. Soak 15g of wood apple leaves in 250 ml of water overnight. The next morning, strain the leaves from the water and drink.

      5. Drink fenugreek tea twice a day to protect the lining of the stomach and intestines. Fenugreek seeds, used in many natural remedies, are highly mucilaginous and will coat the stomach and intestines as they pass through your body, both preventing and soothing stomach ulcers. Boil one cup of water and remove from heat. Add 1 tsp. of fenugreek seeds, allowing to steep for 5 minutes before straining and drinking.

      6.Reduce stress, which can trigger peptic ulcers. Get lots of gentle exercise to help relax and eliminate toxins from the body. Getting regular massage, practicing yoga, meditation or Tai Chi can all help reduce your stress and help prevent further problems from stomach ulcers.

      Personally, I drank cabbage juice, aloe vera and chlorophyll (not all mixed together. Drank separately throughout the day.)

      Most pharmacies carry chlorophyll and aloe vera. Juice the cabbage yourself using a juicer, and drink 4- 4oz. glasses a day. Here is an article from the Happy Juicer that explains this:

  12. QUESTION:
    Any natural treatments for chicken pox scars on my face?
    Well I have 2 chicken pox scars on my forehead want them to look less noticeable because my face is the most important thing of my body. I look like Brad Pitt and keenu reeves a bit. Any natural treatments?

    • ANSWER:
      I used calamine lotion.
      Here are some other remedies I found:

      • Chicken Pox home remedy treatment can be achieved by using Oatmeal. A bath of oatmeal is considered one of the best natural remedies for relieving the itching sensation caused by chicken pox. The bath can be prepared by cooking two cups of oatmeal in two liters of water for fifteen minutes. Put the mixture into a cloth bag and tie a string tightly around the top of the bag. Allow the bag to float around a tub of warm water. Swish the bag around the water until it becomes turbid. Be careful to make sure the bag does not tear. Now, allow your child to play around in the water, letting the water splash over all the scalds. Leave the oatmeal pouch inside the tub.

      • Chicken Pox home remedy treatment can be achieved by using Vitamin E Oil. Rub the Vitamin E oil into the skin and watch for a healing effect. The marks left by chicken pox will slowly fade away by the use of Vitamin E oil.

      • Chicken Pox home remedy treatment can be achieved by using Herbal Tea. Herbal tea prepared by any of the following herbs has shown to be effective in treating chicken pox: basil, chamomile, lemon balm, and marigold. Add lemon, honey, or cinnamon into the tea. Drink several times a day

      • Chicken Pox home remedy treatment can be achieved by using Brown Vinegar. The use of brown vinegar is known to be one of the most important home remedies for treating chicken pox. Add half a cup of brown vinegar to a bath for best usage and results.

      • Chicken Pox home remedy treatment can be achieved by using Baking Soda. Baking Soda is a very popular home remedy used to control the itching resulting from chicken pox. Put baking soda into a glass of water. Sponge the child with some water so that the baking soda dries onto the skin.

      Just make sure not to pick anything. I still have scars from doing that.

  13. QUESTION:
    I was wondering if anyone has ever tried any natural or herbal treatments for fertility?
    I was reading about different natural treatments to help fertility, and this herb came up called vitex or chasteberry, I was wondering if any one has ever used it? Are there any side effects? and how effective is it? Its suppose to bring back the menstral cycle to normal and induce ovulation, from what i've read, is it all true?

    • ANSWER:
      OMG I can't believe I forgot about that, yes I was on Vitex & False Unicorn Root (F.U.R) when ttc #1 only took it for 2 months before ttc though as I read somewhere that pregnant women and lactating women should avoid it, so I thought well that can't be good when ttc what if you do conceive and don't find out till later on, so I stopped the vitex, but stayed on the F.U.R

      FALSE UNICORN ROOT (Chamaelirium luteum)
      False unicorn root may help to normalise ovarian function when female infertility is associated with erratic ovulation.

      and after 3 months on the F.U.R and metformin, 2 months on Vitex and 1 month on clomid, we started ttc, well approx a month later found out I was 5wks pg. So we were successful on our first try. our daughter is now 5yrs old.

      Good luck to you and hope you get a BFP real soon.
      and thankyou I'm going to the health food shop today to get me some F.U.R now..lol...

      Alergies to food include shellfish, garlic, and others. Stop eating things like cheese, then milk products, then anything brewed (beer, yogurt, breads made with yeast). When it goes away, then you have some idea of what you should stop eating.

      Or use the process developed in Japan, and eat what you want to.

  16. QUESTION:
    Does anyone know of any proven natural treatments for different ailments?
    I'm asking because over the weekend, I developed a sore throat and a cough. I'm thinking I caught it at work. Anyhow, my sore throat had gotten worse, to the point where it literally felt like I was swallowing glass.

    I looked online and found that a lot of people, including doctors, said that apple cider vinegar mixed with warm water kills the sore throat, or reduces the pain significantly.

    I gargled the mixture every hour like the instructions said and after the first couple gargles, I swear my sore throat was gone!

    Today, it's like it was never there.

    Anyone else know of any natural treaments because I had no clue about this treatment and it worked better than any medicine I could have taken.

    Thanks.

    • ANSWER:
      The first "Materia Medica" was written in about 3,000 BC and listed 100s of medicinal plants.

      Today, Western Medicine has taken extracts by studying many of those plants, or has made synthetic copies, and has tried to brainwash you into thinking that there is nothing in nature which is to your benefit. The reality is that most pharmacology comes from studying beneficial molecules in plants and the first plants studied came from the "materia medicas" developed by different cultures including the Greeks where Hippocrates developed one.

      Check out my question, I would copy and paste it for your convenience, but there is too much info there. I know of multiple all natural substances which can be used and are cheap and effective.

      Hey Travis, I wanted to make sure that you looked at my information because I care about your health so putting a link probably wasn't sufficient. I've studied Crohn's Disease and Ulcerative Colitis for some time, to tell you the truth I have no social life whatsoever, I have OCD and social anxiety so I spend quite a bit of time immersed in research. The reason why mainstream medicine isn't finding the cause of Crohn's is because there are multiple causes, but the main underlying issue is usually if not always an autoimmune one.

      The "immune system uses the lethal effects of oxidants by making production of oxidizing species a central part of its mechanism of KILLING PATHOGENS (wheat is a pathogen if you do not have the proper enzymes to digest it). Although the use of these highly reactive compounds in the cytotoxic response of phagocytes CAUSES DAMAGE TO HOST TISSUE, the non-specificity of these oxidants is an advantage since they will damage almost every part of their target cell. This prevents a pathogen from escaping this part of immune response by mutation of a single molecular target.

      So in order to prevent pathogens from multiplying, the body attacks with a non-specific response which will damage target cells AND EVEN YOUR OWN TISSUE, for most people this is very small damage. In most people there is an enzyme which digests wheat, but if you don't have this enzyme then your body will attack the wheat because it is treated as a pathogen.

      DMSO and melatonin are all natural antioxidants which can freely move through any membranes, so using these substances neutralizes a lot of the oxidative damage but since a deficiency in the processing of wheat is a problem it's best if you stop eating wheat and gluten which is in almost all packaged foods. I have pages of references to support this hypotheses, and the website I've added as a source goes into the process I described with more details. Melatonin makes you sleepy, and resets your biological clock in a way, so it's best if you take this 30 mintues before you go to sleep like my brother who has Crohn's.

  22. QUESTION:
    Know any natural treatments for being bunged up?
    I am writing this for my Mom. She is a 54 year old woman in good health, but she is on Lipitor and takes 40 milligrams a day. She used to take 20 milligrams but the doctor boosted it up. Since then she has been very constipated. She eats healthy and exercises and drinks lots of water. She says she has tried many things to relieve her constipation but nothing has helped. Do you know of any natural or any other remedies she could try. Thank you for your time.

    • ANSWER:
      Share these suggestions with her. Water. Warm water with natural sea salt. Raw fruits and vegetables. Avoid meat, processed grains or flour and processed sugar. An herbal cleansing product might be a great choice. High amount of pure, low-temp, air-dried Noni fruit has shown to be very helpful. Try a cleanse with marshmallow root, licorice root, bitter gourd melon, black walnut hulls, slippery elm, and pumpkin seed powder. Hope she feels better!

  23. QUESTION:
    Are there are natural treatments for tumours in rats?
    My female rat (3 years old) has a tumour on her side.
    It is not attached to her and is free to move around.
    Other than having it surgically removed, are there any treatments that will make it go away or at the very least stop it getting bigger?
    I am very worried about her and would appreciate some help.
    Thankyou.

    • ANSWER:
      Right now, surgical removal or prevention by spaying are the best ways to deal with tumors in rats. Some people claim that there are some homeopathic treatments for them, but I have never seen any proof that these miracle cures exist.

      There is a new drug called Tamoxifen that is helping treat and prevent tumors. It is expensive though.

      Check this page out: http://www.ratfanclub.org/tamox.html

      Instead of putting their rats through surgery, a lot of people with old rats like yours will leave the tumor alone until it gets so big that it negatively affects the rat's quality of life, and then they have their rat humanely put to sleep.

      Good luck.

  27. QUESTION:
    Why are so many people against holistic/natural treatments for dogs?
    There are so many natural/holistic remedies that work, but when I mention it either on here or to some family members, and I can prove they work, people act like it's a bad thing. What did people do before there were veterinarians? That's where some remedies come from--from people that have found things that worked and there were no vets to charge you out the ass.

    • ANSWER:
      I suppose everyone has different opinions on likes and dislikes. I am a big believer and follower of natural/holistic remedies and try to use them whenever I can. It really is a personal choice and everyone is entitiled to their own opinions. So in your case make sure you do your research and just follow what works for you and your dog, just as long as you can identify that when these remedies are not working, it is time to take your dog to the vet. Natural is always best.

  29. QUESTION:
    Natural treatments for macular degeneration ? Do they help ?
    My father is suffering from macular degeneration (AMD) and he’s been told that there are no effective cure to treat the problem. However, a friend of mine says that there are some natural treatments to help people with AMD. What are they ? What kind of treatments does he have to follow ?

    • ANSWER:
      Dry macular degeneration is usually found in aging people. Macular degeneration is developed when part of the retina deteriorates. The retina is the interior layer of the eye consisting of the receptors and nerves that receive and transmit light signals from the eye into the optic nerve, then to the brain. There is as yet no effective cure for age-related macular degeneration, but there are alternative treatments for macular degeneration that can delay its progression or even improve vision.

      A study shows that risk factors of macular degeneration are excessive weight, lack of exercises, harmful drugs effects, high blood pressure, diabetes and heredity.

      Treating macular degeneration with healthy nutrition and exercises :
      Medical experts suggest that nutrients that contain antioxidant such as vitamin C (ascorbic acid), vitamin E (alpha-tocopherol), carotenoids, selenium and zink can neutralize the damage of the cells caused by free radicals.

      It is found that people who choose active lifestyle may less likely to suffer this eye problem comparing to those who are inactive. Many people admit that special therapeutic eye exercises have helped their vision in improving. Therapeutic eye exercises are very beneficial in slowing the progress of macular degeneration. Those eye exercises are designed to strengthen the eye muscles and train the vision center of the brain.

      The eye trainings include covering one eye with one hand and looking at different objects continuously instead of staring at just one object. Or you can focus on pencil holding it at arm's length. Begin to move your hand, holding the pencil as if you are conducting it. Slowly move the object in figure 8s, swirls and other shapes. Always keep your eyes focused on the object's detail. Move the pencil closer to you and further away. Remember to blink frequently, relax and breathe regularly.

      Although there is no cure, there are effective optional treatments for macular degeneration to prevent severe vision loss, slow the progression or improve the problems considerably

It will moisten the boogies and congestion so you can suck it out easier. Just to clarify for the people who will bash this suggestion...you don't actually put the baby in the shower...

    What are some natural treatments to lessen the effects of Down's Syndrome?
    At least to make it easier for me to do better in school.

    • ANSWER:
      Absolutely not. Ignore any quack who tells you that he can improve your condition.

      There is no plausible way that chiropractors (usually always, idiots) can help with DS. It's a genetic disorder. If you have any cardiological, ENT, endocrine, GI and neurological issues, etc, which are often associated with the condition, you need to see a doctor.

      About 40% of people with Downs have arioventricular canal defects, however, you would have been screened at birth.

  38. QUESTION:
    Are there any natural treatments for ADD or ADHD?
    I suspect I may have a minor case of ADD, but I don't have health insurance so I can't get checked out by an MD. Are there any safe nutritional supplements, mental exercises, or other remedies that can assist with symptoms? Thanks.

    • ANSWER:
      Jennifer is right. There have been a lot of studies that have shown that Fish Oil can help with ADD/ADHD. It seems too simple, and that may be one reason it wasn't really looked at closely for this, but I wasn't surprised it would help when I thought about it. The EPA and DHA in Fish Oil help with all sorts of things including heart health, skin health, and brain health.
      Give it a try... it's economical, safe, and easy. Just make sure that the company you get it from uses Molecular Distillation because that's currently the only safe way to remove any trace contaminants of any heavy metals. Of course, if you aren't sure about the dosage or the benefits, you may want to consult with a holistic doctor, as they may have other additional options available to them.

      Physical exercise can help in many ways as well to help with getting some of the energy out if they are hyperactive. Also, some more structured exercise can help a lot, especially martial arts. Now, it may seem weird, but the structure that is set up in that really helps people who have ADD, ADHD, and even Autism... We've got a few students in my Tae Kwon Do class that have each of those and I've seen amazing results from it.
      I have heard mixed results from mental exercises. Some say it helps, some say they don't because they can't get the person to sit down long enough to do them. I think it varies mostly on a case by case basis.

      There are quite a few studies on many of these as well and you can take a look through many of them at http://www.pubmed.org (just search for the terms like ADHD, Fish Oil, etc). Good luck and I hope I helped!

  39. QUESTION:
    Natural treatments for my toddlers eczema?
    My 2 1/2 year old has had eczema for a long time, our doctor has prescribed different creams but none of them seem to do much for my son. Recently his itching has gotten worse and my 5 month old has gotten a rash from itching on his face as well. I plan on taking them back to the doctor at some point but he doesn't seem to be of much help. Does anyone have any experience with this and have any suggestions for natural treatment?

    • ANSWER:
      Hi,

      Sounds like the skin reactions are very very similar to what I was having two to three years ago right after I had poisoned my liver with too much toxic micro-nutritional supplements for too long - when I never even considered it was toxic. After the poisoning was identified I began having severe Urticaria allergic reactions to foods meds creams and my own sweat and who knows what other toxins, while my weakened immune system would then also promote fungal infections. I eventually learned to make the right organic nutritional choices that allowed my organs and immune system to rebuild and recover.

      Poor quality and/or low cost micro-nutrition that easily weakens one's immune system, will cause/ allow/ promote diabetes types of fungal infections and itch rash diseases and almost any other disease, even if one might be very very young or has never been ‘overweight.’

      IF YI - my own skin-Urticaria issues have cost about ,500 in the last three years to learn what I now know - which is that ALL skin diseases are strongly related to one's micro-nutrition and/or toxic absorption and/or hygiene and/or parasites.

      Since doctors were not very helpful and it ‘almost’ took too long to learn what I now try to teach others, I now take a little time each week to help others understand the need for non-toxic and ‘adequate’ micro-nutritional absorption in the gut AND for good hygiene - which will then prevent or minimize every ‘dis-ease’ I am aware of.

      My easily triggered allergic reactions continually cause small water blisters under the top layer of skin along with skin fevers and pruritus itches and also rashes and then long term scaling. When my malady was at its worst - I used to have allergic itches to my own sweat that I was burning off after showering or during exercise or when parts of my body got hot - during a time in my life when I used to have considerable toxins stored within my body fat, along with a ‘very’ weakened immune and filter systems that could/would not ‘elminate’ these strong toxins into a stool.

      Monistat_7 and Desenex are moist-area anti-fungals and Monistat_Derm and Head_&_Shoulders are also anti-fungals, but you really need to see an MD and do more internet research to better understand how difficult it is for an MD to diagnose serious skin maladies. Use meds that are prescribed in a very-minimal way so that your body’s immune system's and skin/ organs can repair and grow stronger, which will then prevent reoccurrences in the future. After I began using a very thin petrolatum based skin cream I inadvertently used too much until I was in the ER with severely swollen lymph glands, that made me think I might have contracted lymphoma.

      Since when I was an asthmatic teen and learned I would have severe reactions when I 'accidentally' inhaled or used 'any' deodorants, and could not eat cinnamon stuff without having an anaphylactic reaction - because cinnamon has some toxins that are strong enough to substitute for pesticides, my life long triggers have taught me to use hypo-allergenic non-perfumed soaps in a minimal way and to sometimes powder different portions of my body with cornstarch to help minimize yeast infections; especially whenever my micro-nutritional absorption within my gut has been less than was ‘necessary’ to ‘adequately’ repair my body’s immune system, organs, and skin on a daily basis.

      I eventually learned that itching or rashes are symptoms of maladies that could become much worse if not healed with better non-toxic and more ‘dense’ micro-nutritional choices. FYI - The most nutritionally dense foods that have been documented by the USDA are predominately found within the very expensive calories from leafy green vegetables.

      Even though I might not have answered your question as ‘specifically’ as you may have wanted, to help you with simple and concise information on ALL itch rash illnesses and for short and long term solutions to them ALL - the following link has considerable info within a ‘report’ I recently posted on Y_A:

      <> http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20091113104039AAbnGet <>

      The report at qid=20091113104039AAbnGet is an accumulation of my own investigations into itch rash illnesses that are due to my own non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, even though I have a fairly low BMI of 26.

      Finally, because I am not an MD who could diagnose you ‘personally,’ I feel I should add that although I have seen that most root problems for 'skin' issues for myself and others has usually ‘always’ been from long and or short term allergic reactions to 'something' or poor hygiene COMBINED WITH a weakened lymph liver kidney skin and immune systems - IF the following symptoms would ever occur - I ‘think’ the worst rash one might possibly have quickly acquired is from deadly bacterial meningitis, ALTHOUGH bacterial meningitis would be VERY RARE.

      The two quotes below are from: <> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bacterial_Meningitis <>

      <>
      “IF a rash is present, it may indicate a particular cause of meningitis; for instance, meningitis caused by meningococcal bacteria may be accompanied by a characteristic rash.”
      <>

      <>
      “The MOST common symptoms of meningitis are headache and neck stiffness associated with fever, confusion or altered consciousness, vomiting, and an inability to tolerate light (photophobia) or loud noises (phonophobia). SOMETIMES, especially in small children, only nonspecific symptoms may be present, such as irritability and drowsiness.”

  43. QUESTION:
    are there any natural treatments or medicines for psoriasis arthritis?
    The medicines I've looked at have so many side effects I'd rather have the pain. Anyone know of any other way to help the pain?

    • ANSWER:
      Topical treatments are most effective for treating mild to moderate psoriasis and are aimed at reducing swelling and skin cell turnover, helping the skin to peel, unclogging pores and suppressing the immune system. Phototherapy involves the use of natural ultraviolet light and artificial ultraviolet light – it reduces redness and slows the overproduction of skin cells that causes scaling.

      If psoriasis is severe, medication in the form of an injection or pill is administered – this is called systemic treatment. These treatment options may be combined to achieve the best results. Through constant trail and error, the psoriasis sufferer needs to discover the most effective treatment.

      The use of natural and alternative treatments has become increasingly popular among people suffering with psoriasis. Natural treatments such as herbal and homeopathic remedies are a safe and effective alternative to use especially when traditional therapy has failed to produce the desired results. Carefully selected ingredients have been chosen to support skin health and promote healthy cell renewal and routine shedding of old skin cells.

      Herbs such as Galium aperine (Cleavers) and Trifolium pratense (red clover) have a wide of therapeutic benefits which include acting as a cleansing tonic, blood purifier as well as lymphatic cleanser.

      Tissue salts such as Natrium Muriaticum, Kalium Sulphate and Kalium Muriaticum are excellent for maintaining skin health and supporting the natural healing and regenerative processes of the skin.

  49. QUESTION:
    best herbs or natural treatments to cure social phobia?
    I'm reading about all these medications and herbs. I'm seeing stuff about cognitive therapy. I took meds like Lexapro and Zoloft in the past without much success. I have to take some steps to change my life, but don't want to hit another dead end.

    • ANSWER:
      Some might look at natural treatments of social phobias/ depression as 'voodoo', pseudo-science and the other stock adjectives but as for me I too had a very bad run of doctors giving me meds that did not provide relief. I do not know if my problems are bad enough to only be treated by professionals but since it seems that they are just throwing darts at a board in treating me through meds what can it hurt for me to try some plant based treatments? Much cheaper and way less side effects.

      Valerian, wild lettuce, hops, passionflower, chamomile, catnip, linden, st. john's wort are some of the herbs that can help relax a body gently. Won't stop a panic attack in its tracks mind you but that's not how this stuff works- consistent use for a few weeks or months will show results if it is right (except valerian root- the basis of Valium without the addictive quality nor hangover effect after usage). A detox program can help as well to get things started but beware- if you have collected a whole bunch of bad stuff (heavy metals, 'toxins', debris in the colon) the detox process will dredge up some bad feelings and thoughts as your body sheds these unwanted poisons. Don't know your situation, your diet nor your health so can't give firm advice but once again if doctors are shooting blanks in giving you meds to help what can it hurt?

    I'm tired of taking a handful of medication that only makes me groggy and doesn't seem to work very well. I know they say to stay indoors when things are blooming, but what else can I do to keep from sneezing the next month away?

    Thanks :-)

    • ANSWER:
      I have insane allergies right now so I understand where you are coming from!

      NetiPot rinse for your nose will get the offending allergens out of your nasal passageway (see link below from LifeHacker) - if done correctly (snorting water correctly is a skill) can be very, very helpful. NYTimes published an article recently that this has actually been shown to work in clinical trials.

      I've never had much luck with honey as a cure or aid for relief. Try to call your local reputable health or organic store. If uncertain about your area, Whole Foods Market has some great resources to answer your questions and direct you to local cures.

      Masks. You'll look goofy but will be free of misery. You can get these at any drug store. I've given up and started wearing this and it does help; plus, it embarrasses the heck out of my adolescents to be seen with me.

      Good luck!

Home Remedies and Natural cure for Bad Breath
Bad breath is breath that has an unpleasant odor. It is also known as halitosis. This odor may occur from time to time, or can be of long duration, depending on the cause.

Millions of bacteria live in the mouth, especially in the back of the tongue. In many people, who are the main causes of bad breath. The mouth of the hot and humid conditions are ideal for the growth of these bacteria. Most bad breath is caused by something in the mouth.

Causes of bad breath

Bad breath, also known as halitosis, is breath that has an unpleasant odor. This odor can affect periodically or be persistent, depending on the cause. In many people, the millions of bacteria that live in the mouth (especially in the back of the tongue) are the main causes of bad breath. The mouths of warm, moist conditions make an ideal environment for these bacteria to grow. Most bad breath is caused by something in the mouth.

http://www.herbalcureindia.com/badbreath.htm

Bad breath can be related to food, poor dental hygiene, use of snuff and certain medical situations. Bad breath may be systemic or oral basis. Poor oral hygiene leads to bad breath because when you leave food particles in your mouth, these pieces of food can rot and start to smell.

The mouth of a person can be a home for hundreds of different varieties of bacteria. And way in the mouth at all times is a constant battle for space between the types of bacteria that produce products of abuse that cause bad breath and those who do not. It is the right balance between the relative numbers of these bacteria that ultimately determine the quality of a person's breathing.

Symptoms

Movie yellow or white on the tongue - these bad breath symptoms is very common among people who suffer from halitosis. Once removed, however, does not guarantee that the bacteria are gone completely. The reason is that these bacteria are found throughout the mouth and tongue. Usually people who have mucosal (nasal) have problems of rapid construction of new firms in these movies. It is recommended to consult a doctor as soon as possible to avoid further problems.

Home Remedies

The problem of halitosis or bad breath has plagued mankind for centuries. To overcome bad breath, the ancient Greeks supposedly used home remedies, such as rinsing with white wine, anise seed, and myrrh, while the Italians mouthwash mix of sage, cinnamon, juniper seeds, root cypress and rosemary leaves, according to the Academy of General Dentistry.

Take fenugreek seed tea can be helpful too. In addition, parsley and rosemary can eat to stop bad breath in the mouth. They do not realize this, but including a lot of yogurt in food digestion will also facilitate and help prevent halitosis.

Chewing a clove after meals does not allow the bad breath that form in the mouth. And one or two tablespoons of castor oil can be consumed every day to keep the stomach clean and prevent odor due to indigestion.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    Does anyone know any home remedies for dogs who have asthma or allergies?
    i have a beagle-mix. she is about 11 years old. she has problems w/ her breathing. sometimes she has "weezing attacks" water doesnt seem to help. when she is sleeping she breathes very heavy and it seems she is having trouble breathing. she has done this for a while now, but we were living somewhere else and she didnt do it there but now that we are home again she does. she is an indoor/outdoor dog. if anyone knows what could be causing this or anything that might help, please let me know. besides of course taking her to the vet. any kind of natural remedies or medicine or something. thanks.

    • ANSWER:
      treat the dog as if it were a child...get an air purifier in the home to free the air of allergens; also, make sure your home is a smoke-free enviroment, as that can really set off the dog's asthma....also, some vets tell dog owners to buy claritin or benadryl (over-the-counter) to help their pets with their allergies....talk to your vet about that option. it sounds crazy but i've seen it all before...prozac puppies and claritin kitties!

  2. QUESTION:
    DS: What are your favorite home remedies for dogs?
    Under NO circumstances am I advocating not taking your dog to the vet when it is sick, but there are LOTS of tried and true remedies for common problems.

    There is a lot of expereince here on Y!A that gets overlooked by "Take your dog to the vet" when it is loosing a puppy tooth, or has a broken nail.

    What are some home remedies for common problems you use? When DO you use them? When do you NOT use them and take the dog in?

    • ANSWER:
      Pepto - for upset stomach & diarrhea, remember to wipe away the pink lips*

  3. 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.

  4. QUESTION:
    Lets try this question again about home remedies for dogs lol!?
    I am working on training my dogs, but I am having trouble training them not to stand on the "baby gate" that separates them in a different room with dog door when they are not wanted in house. I am not looking for obedience school or crate training. Just some old school remedies that people might have used. Thanks Much!

    • ANSWER:
      When you see them putting their paws on the gate, step in front of them and tell them off. When they do get off praise them with a treat/toy/whatever motivates them the most. It'll probably take some time until they finally get it, but just be consistent. :)

      I just have to add: I don't agree with Phyllis L because how are they learning exactly with a water gun being sprayed at them? Doesn't exactly sound like 'fun' either. Especially if it spooks the dog.

  5. QUESTION:
    what are some home remedies to get my dogs fur to grow back?
    My son sprayed some orange glow (furniture polish) on my dog and now his fur is falling out and he has a couple of scabs on his skin. Could this be a "chemical burn" or possibly mange? What are some home remedies that I can use to help him grow his fur back? Thanks for your help!

    • ANSWER:
      As soon as something like that happens to your dog you should immediately give him a bath using soap made for dogs or dish soap (if you have no dog soap). Never use human soap or shampoo, or flea soap.

      I would also take him to the vet to make sure it isn't mange, a skin yeast infection, an allergy, a hot spot, or anything else. Depending on what it is, they vet might give you antibiotics, steroids (in cream or pill form), or an ointment. Or the vet might recommend what you should put on it. They make special antibiotic ointment for dogs that is safe if the dog licks it (although if you can you want to keep your dog from licking the spot so that it can heal). I put plain human triple antibiotic ointment on my dog if he gets a cut or something from hiking. When his ears or nose get dry in the winter I use Bag Balm.

      Finally, I would keep the chemicals locked up where kids and dogs can't get to them.

  6. QUESTION:
    Home remedies for a dogs ear infection?
    I know I should take my dog to the vet, but money doesn't grow on trees so I just need to find something else to help her.

    she's a lhaso apso and husky mix and has floppy ears.

    her ears get really inflamed and hot.

    is there any home remedies to help her ear?

    • ANSWER:
      Go to your local pet store and get ear cleaner and ear powder. Squirt a small amount of the ear cleaner into your dogs ear and wet a cotton ball then clean it. Only clean the areas where you can see, you can damage the ear if you go farther in. After put a little powder in, that will dry up everything. You should keep doing this to get his ears back to normal.

  7. QUESTION:
    Is there a site for home remedies for dogs and cats?

    sorry i asked for a site, i do take my animals to the vet, i was only wondering if there was a site to learn about things that dont need vet attention.

    • ANSWER:
      I don't know of any websites that have good, reliable information, but there are many book on natural health for dogs and cats. They often give homeopathic or holistic treatments for some health problems. If these things don't work, you definitely need to see a vet, and for some a vet is still the best option.

      One really good book is Natural Health for Dogs and Cats by Dr. Pit Cairn. Another that I recently bought is called The Encyclopedia of Natural Pet Care by CJ Puotinen. Both talk about natural foods being healthiest and stress raw foods. They also give brief descriptions of some health issues, such as allergies, that can be dealt with in natural ways. I find them very useful.

      They do not replace veterinary care, but can definitely help you take care of your pets. I was able to use the book by Dr. Pit Cairn to diagnose my dog from the symptoms listed in the book. I then went to the vet where they confirmed what I had suspected and gave me what I needed to help my dog.

      Good luck!

  8. QUESTION:
    Are there any home remedies for dogs with tummy aches?
    My dog just took a flea medicine pill and now seems as though he isn't feeling well. Our vet's office is closed for the evening, and I was just wondering if I could give him anything to make him feel a little better.

    • ANSWER:
      The pill may have upset his stomach, but it does not indicate a visit to emergency.

      DO NOT give him Pepto Bismol! Really bad case of diarrhea will follow. Something in it. If you can't get him to some grass that he can graze (he will instinctively know which kind he needs) check with your local (large) pharmacy for a small bottle of Aluminum Hydroxide. One-three ounces depending on the size of your dog. Or let time take care of the issue. Tomorrow morning he should be back to normal.

      Provide lots of fresh water. And a warm place to cuddle near you.

      Best wishes
      Babe

  9. QUESTION:
    Home remedies for my dogs upset stomach?
    My 5 year old Rott got ahold of some apple pies she shouldnt have eaten and now she is paying the price. Her stomach is making sounds that are making me cringe.Does anyone know of any home remedies that will help ease her discomfort? Thank You in Advance!!!

    • ANSWER:
      Oh my! Yes, Pepto Bismol is generally safe for dogs. If her illness lasts more than 48 hours you should take her to your vet in case she developed pancreatitis or enteritis from the incident.

      Very often a meal rich in sugars and fats will shock their digestive system, causing the pancreas to inflame and become angry, which is very painful and actually dangerous, the dog can die from a severe case. If their bowels have trouble processing it or passing it along, they can also develop a nasty infection. Both pancreatitis and enteritis cause vomiting and diarrhea, as well as anorexia. If you observe these symptoms definitely see your vet. If not, let the Pepto work its magic ^.^

      Feed her a bland diet for a day or two (depending now how quickly she recovers - steamed rice and boiled, skinless chicken) to avoid any further insult to the system. When she is feeling better she can go back to her regular dog food.

      Good luck, hope she feels better soon!

    How do I relieve my dogs constipation with home remedies?
    My dog is a german shepard doberman rotweiller, and he as about 75 pounds. He's not that big of a dog, but he's not small. He seems to be constipated, and I would like to know how to get rid of it. Thanks for the advice everyone!

    ~Much love from TanTan :)
    Well, that is what breeds my dog has in him. He is just a mutt. :) But he is 9 years old, and we have had him for 8 and a half years. :)

    • ANSWER:
      Canned pumpkin (plain, not spiced) is great to help regulate your dog, and he will love the taste of it. Don't dump a whole bunch in his bowl, just a few teaspoons mixed with his regular food to start out. Use a bit more next meal time if he still doesn't go. If his problems persist over the next few days, it's time to see the vet.

    • ANSWER:
      If you can't afford the vet care, you can't afford the dog. Surrender him to a pug rescue so he can get the care he needs.

  14. QUESTION:
    Is there any natural home remedies for curing tapeworm in dogs?
    My puppy has worms and I just got him and I had treated him for tapeworm about 3 weeks ago and it cost a lot of money and my dog still has it and I wanted to know if there are any natural home remedies out there I could use to cure tapeworm inside my dog I have been giving him flea baths and flea medicine he will stop getting the tapeworm but now I need to cure the tapeworm please help he doesn't look happy.

    • ANSWER:
      Your poor puppy and you to have all of that going on along with going to a new home.

      Tapeworms are one of the hardest parasites to get rid of because the head latches onto the inside of the intestines.

      Because the drugs used to treat parasites do sometimes have side-effects such as nausea and because they are chemical based, frequent use can negatively affect your pet’s immune system, and therefore people look for alternatives for their four legged friends.

      There are LOTS of natural home remedies that you can purchase or put together, I've added some links below.

      Ingredients to look for:
      Wormwood (Artemisia absinthinium), Cloves (Eugenia caryophyllata), Neem (Azadirachta indica), Herb of Grace (Ruta graveolens), and green Black walnut hulls (Juglans nigra)

      Make sure your entire home is completely free of any flea infestations as that is how one of the ways for reinfections occurs.

      Good luck to you and your puppy.

      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.

My dog gets dry skin on occasion and it is usually in winter.the oatmeal 'snack' really seems to work and my vet says it is good for her. You may also want to try vitamin E or cod liver oil gel caps.

      Give Ammonia a Try

      I know that you can use Ammonia on your trash to keep nosey dogs out. Perhaps it would help keep the neighborhood animals away. I'm not sure if this is completely "harmless." Surely the animals won't lick at something that smells that putrid.

      Spice Up Their Lives

      I have heard that Cayenne Pepper works. I haven't tried this myself, as I don't have dogs or neighbor's dogs that do this type of damage. Apparently, you simply sprinkle the Cayenne Pepper around the area they have gone and they won't return to the same spot. To deter them from doing so in the first place, you could sprinkle a border of Cayenne Pepper to prevent them from crossing onto your lawn.

      A Unique Message

      This will sound strange, but adult male human urine has hormones in it that repels other mammals. It makes use of the fact that males mark territory with urine. Such marking is taken as a "do not trespass" message. It will also deter rabbits, deer, etc. And odds are very high that the older man you knew was well aware of this fact but was too embarrassed to share his "secret."

      Spray the Critters

      You might try a motion-activated sprinkler that sprays with full garden hose pressure. It's called the Scarecrow. Do an Internet search with the words "scarecrow," "spray," and "motion" and you will find several online places that sell it.

      I'm assuming you've tried talking with the owners if you can identify them. I think it's very irresponsible of them and gives pet owners a bad reputation. They should have fenced yards for their pets.

      "Dog-B-Gone" Tonic

      According to Jerry Baker, "America's Master Gardener," in his book Green Grass Magic, if a dog urinates on your lawn, water it immediately to dilute the urine and minimize the damage. He also gives a recipe for his "Dog-B-Gone Tonic" which contains:

      2 cloves garlic
      2 small onions
      1 jalapeno pepper
      1 T. cayenne pepper
      1 T. Tabasco sauce
      1 T. chili powder
      1 T. liquid dish soap
      1 qt. warm water

      Chop up the garlic and onions and combine all ingredients. Let it sit for 24 hours, strain through cheesecloth, and then sprinkle on the areas that you want dogs to keep away from.

    Is there any home remedies for small red spots on my dogs stomach?
    My dog has several small red dots or spots on my german shepherds stomach. We just sprayed our yard with something to help with weeds. We are pretty sure that the spots are from that, so is there any home remedies that could help cure these "spots"?

  29. QUESTION:
    any solutions for washing my dog(home remedies)she had pups 4 days ago but she is really smelly?
    ok well my bitch had puppys 4 days ago ...im cleaning the house like mad but there is still a smell i think its off the dog herself any home remedies or solutions on cleaning her ...or getting rid of smell thanks

    • ANSWER:
      No need to bath the Dam

      She needs to be warm so that the pups can snuggle up to her for warmth, if she is wet or even damp this can effect the pups as they can not regulate their own body temperatures and you could be causing more harm than good. Even the death of the pups as being against their mother while not dry will draw the warmth from them.

      Even if you tried to properly dry her that is too much time for her to be away from the pups. Again no need to bathe the Dam.

      The dam really shouldn't be having a smell to her with the exception of her still bleeding a bit. Yet there shouldn't be any bad odors.

      Simply make sure you keep the whelping box clean and if need be you can spot clean the Dam with a wet wipe, yet stay away from her nipples and underside where the pups will be nursing and snuggling up to her.

    What home remedies can I use for my dogs itchy snout?
    My male one-year old dog has developed bumps that are kind of scabby on his snout that he itches regularly. What is it? I have a feeling it has something to do with the dry, winter weather, but I want to give him a natural home remedy instead of taking him to a vet. Any suggestion?

    • ANSWER:
      You don't know WHY your dog has scabs on his muzzle (pigs have snouts), so how can you possibly treat it? Your dog needs the vet.

    what are some home remedies for getting rid of flees on dogs?
    my dog just got flees and I have not gotten paid yet what are some home remedies to make him quit itching or to get rid of them all together please help i feel bad

    • ANSWER:
      I don't recommend using dawn dish detergent unless you know your dog's skin type or have a conditioning rinse to keep it from drying out, but it is an option. I use it for Zoey when her preventative wears out early. I fill the bathtub with ankle deep water, use a flea comb to go through her ears and face and then use dawn to create a thick, blue, soapy barrier around her neck (fleas will flee for high ground when you start washing a dog). Scrub and leave the soap on for 5-10 minutes, I use the flea comb (or any tiny toothed comb) and go through sections of fur, rinsing out in the ankle water. Then I do a thorough rinsing, and depending on how restless Zoey is I'll drain the water with her in there and continue rinsing her feet to the get the stragglers, or I'll pull her out and dry her off feet first outside the tub while it drains. SO many fleas come off, and with this method they stay off longer.

      If there's a whole foods near you, they sell a product called diatomaceous earth, one bag lasts forever.. literally. You sprinkle in the carpets and their beds then vacuum up a couple of days later, and keep them powdered in it weekly (you can also give it to them in their food to rid hookworms, tapeworms, roundworms).

  35. QUESTION:
    any home remedies for tear stains on white dogs face?
    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!

  36. QUESTION:
    Does anybody have any home remedies for chronic diarrhea in dogs?
    We have taken our dog Noodle to the vet several times for this problem but nothing they prescribe really seems to do the trick, we have slowly changed out foods, and done a couple of other things to try and solve the problem but it's terrible to see him feeling so badly. Just wondering if anybody has figured out something at home that works.
    **yes he has been tested for internal parasites includnig coccidia, negative results**

    • ANSWER:
      I have learnt by my mistakes. My present dog had dreadful problems because of the food which I gave her, I experimented with dog food, I tried raw diets, cooked diets and over the years I tried various dog foods. She did not like the raw diets and the dog food that I gave her resulted in diarrhoea. As an experienced dog owner I introduced any changes gradually. Nevertheless my dog still had problems.
      Eventually, because of my researches on the Internet I found that the experts have recently discovered that GRAIN in our dog’s diet causes many problems. I now know that grain creates acidity in the blood. This causes skin problems, digestive issues, allergies, sickness, constipation, diarrhoea, anal gland problems etc.,

      if your dog has skin problems or any of the above problems PLEASE CHANGE THE DIET. Avoid Grain, rice, beef derivatives and dairy food

      A rapid change of diet will upset your dog; any change of diet must be done gradually. Do please change to a grain free diet. I have had sixteen dogs throughout the years and they have had various problems. Perhaps if I had known about the dangers of GRAIN they would have had fewer problems. .

  37. QUESTION:
    Home remedies for hook worms in dogs?
    I have a 4 year old chocolate lab whose had hook worms numerous times..we've gotten the most professional medicine from the vet and it worked but she just got worms again. is there any home remedies i can try instead of spending tons of money on stuff that doesn't work? please help!

    • ANSWER:
      The problem is likely to be with reinfection from the environment rather than the hookworm treatments not working. The environment needs to be kept really clean. Use disposable bedding and keep outside tarmac/concrete areas as clean and dry as possible. Contaminated soil can be treated with sodium borate - this will kill the grass but it also gets rid of hookworm eggs.

  39. QUESTION:
    How to deodorize a dog with home remedies?
    I give her a bath once a month, and I heard that if you give a dog too many baths it's bad for their skin. Are to any home remedies I can use to keep my puppy smelling fresh?

    Btw- She's a bichon! :)

    • ANSWER:
      This isn't really a "home remedy" but I found this amazing product at my local pet store (Speck's Pet Supplies) called Four Paws cologne. You can probably find it online by searching for Four Paws Products LTD. After brushing, spray it lightly from head to tail and it leaves a soft, pleasantly scented coat. The best part is that it doesn't leave the coat all sticky. I've tried other, more expensive, products like Pet Head "between baths sprays" (found at petsmart), but they all leave this sticky, time-for-another-bath-soon, feeling to the coat.

      BTW - you have a cute dog :)

  42. QUESTION:
    How can I get rid of Canine worms in my dog? Home remedies for the guy?
    My little puppy is about 5 months old. And I just recently discovered he had worms in his stool. They are dead when they come out, but there is a lot. How can I get rid of them? And can a human get them?

    • ANSWER:
      Those nasty critters are most deffinatly Roundworms..

      Roundworms can be found in your dog’s stool or vomit. They can grow to about 7 inches in length and have a spaghetti-like appearance. If this type of infestation is not detected early and is allowed a chance to develop, a buildup of worms in the intestines can cause an obstruction which may result in death.

      -symptoms of a severe infestation are: pot-belly appearance, diarrhea, vomiting, dull coat and weight loss.

      Puppies should be dewormed every 2 weeks between 2 and 12 weeks of age, then monthly until he is 6 months old. Once your puppy has reached 6 months of age, he is less susceptible to contracting these worms but should continue yearly exams (or more often if considered high-risk).

      Because Roundworm CAN BE TRANSMITTED TO HUMANS, it is important to promote good hygiene, such as washing your hands regularly. Transmission of this dog worm to humans is usually through infected soil, which may be in your backyard or front lawn. Because the eggs are sticky and can easily stick to your hands or clothing, make sure you wash your hands regularily!!!!!!

      Treatment generally involves administering oral medication (dewormer) with follow-up fecal exams and a monthly heartworm medication. Try 1-800-PetMeds - America's Pet Health Resource. Thats the best and usually the cheapest way to get pet meds for your puppy.

      Good luck!! Hope this helps!!

  43. QUESTION:
    are there any home remedies for dogs red swollen anus?
    if you lift the tail it looks like its protruding.he won't sit still for long .he jumps up

    • ANSWER:
      This happens from digestive juices getting on the anus probably from diarrhea. The best thing to start with is a nice cool/luke warm very wet towel(probably paper) and wash it off with a dabbing motion. Don't use soap just keep doing this until the towel is no longer yellow (from the burning bile). Now pat dry and dust with baking soda, this will neutralize any missed bile-acid on in the folds of the anus. Now let the dog rest. He will probably look allot better in the morning. If he has another bowel movement then you will need to repeat this process until the anus is all healed up. Have Fun!

      ALSO: Don't forget to wash off and treat the underside of the tail where it touches the anus as this can also hold allot of bile-acid.

    Please Help! I need some home remedies for dogs and their tear stains!?
    thanks 4 every answer u can give. its just that my dog has them very bad and i need to get rid of them!

    • ANSWER:
      My white boxer had tear stains until I switched her to filtered water (she was drinking tap water). The stains cleared up in a matter of days. If your dog has longer fur it might take a while longer to see results, but you should definitely give it a try. Buy a BRITA pitcher or faucet attachment -- NOT bottled water.

  47. 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!

  48. QUESTION:
    Home remedies for dogs ear mites?
    I have a puppy around 4 mos old and it keeps itching its ears and whining. I believe its ear mites but they look very clean to me. We have had her treated for fleas so I know its not that. I am wanting a home remedy for posisble ear mites

    • ANSWER:
      Do not put anything in that pup's ear that doesn't come from a vet. You could wind up with a deaf dog.

      At our shelter, we have had dogs with chronic ear problems, and two were caused by well-meaning owners who tried everything from warm mineral oil (it was supposed to suffocate the mites) to an over-the-counter sulpher paste that fried the inside of the dog's ear.

      As the others have recommended, PLEASE take this pup to the vet. The standard ear drop medicine for mites is very inexpensive. You could spend a ton on all those home brews, and not cure the problem.

      He will also be able to tell if it is ear mites. You said the ears look clean, yet with mites, there's usually a nasty black residue. She could the beginnings of a form of mange, which isn't noticeable to the human eye right away, but causes them to scratch like crazy (with the accompanying whine of misery).

      Thanks, and good luck to you.

  49. QUESTION:
    Home remedies for ear mites in cats and dogs?
    I am looking to get rid of ear mites in my dogs and cats ears without seeing a vet. Can anyone offer some advice?

    • ANSWER:
      Why not? Can't afford a vet, is that it? Why do you have pets then? You do realise it's classed neglect to not provide your pets with appropriate care? I don't care how hard up you are or even why, that is not your cat's and dog's fault. Find the money somehow (sell your computer if you have to) and don't be cheap and resort to home remedies. You will either do more harm than good or it will have no effect at all which kind of defeats the whole object, don't you think?
