Do you have any good home remedies that you have used to share?
for what ailment?

call me crazy, but i prefer to suffer and deal with the pain unless its excruciating. i like to walk it off. but if there is an infection or something on a person or animal, i use:

a few:

- honey (great antibacterial)
- silver colloid (antibacterial, antiviral)
- activated charcoal (probably THE most important thing to have in your med kit-- needs its own thread)
- valerian root (great for pain-- i dont use it!)
- clay with onion (for yellow jacket/hornet/bee stings-- i dont use, but a loved one did and it helped numb it)
- toothache plant (for toothaches-- helped this one woman. i tried chewing it and it does numb ones entire mouth)
- natural aspirin powder from the plant -- heard about it on a holistic vet podcast-- great for animals and is far far better than the usual stuff. found a small bag of it on amazon for cheap.

Activated charcoal really is amazing stuff! Polymoog is right: everybody should have some on hand. It's like a miracle for food poisoning, or any kind of poisoning.
I have mine. :)
To Polymoog's list, I would add the four big spices for their anti-viral, anti-microbial , anti-inflammatory and anti-fungal properties .... Turmeric, Clove, Ginger and Rosemary. Also get yourself some organic unfiltered apple cider vinegar and organic unrefined coconut oil then with a little patience, persistence, and good eating drinking and breathing habits - you can stave off or wipe out almost any ailment, God Willing.

I have not personally tried this, but studies have shown that raw green cabbage juice can cure stomach ulcers. You have to drink a LOT of it though, for weeks, and it has to be fresh juiced.

Tea Tree Oil works wonders. It's great for any problems with skin or fungus or even dandruff. If you have athletes foot, skip the expensive treatments and buy some tea tree oil. It'll heal itself within a week. :) I swear by it.

clove is in the top 3 of the ORAC list of strongest antioxidants, as is cinnamon (but get the real cinnamon). ginger is fantastic for heartburn or stomach indigestion.

i forgot-- for a bleeding cut, try cayenne pepper. works great. this kid cut himself with a hand axe on his shin in the woods. we patched him up with cayenne to stop the bleeding and then used activated charcoal to keep the infection away. he wouldve needed at least 10 stitches.

I've heard that sugar works for bleeding too. Without the sting. I'm no wimp, but the bleeding will have to be severe before I use Cayenne.

Please do in consult with a naturopath for a gallbladder cleanse and I'm not sure if seniors should do them if they haven't before.

For my very first cleanse (several years ago), I had prepared beforehand for a couple-few months with certain herbs targeting the liver (sorry, it was a blend - but you can probably find something similar in the health food store) and Chanca Piedra. Then just prior to the cleanse for 3 weeks, I took 1 glass/day pure organic apple juice (with the pulp).

The cleanse:

though I didn't find the need to drink apple juice afterwards as this website suggests and I have found all stones if any will be passed the next day. The Magnesium Citrate BTW can be picked up at the pharmacy.

No kidding, the very first stone I passed (in a group of stones of quarter/dime-size, etc.) was about 1 inch in l/w/h, very calcified and brown in colour. Over time, the cleanses produced dark green to lime green stones and then finally just mainly liquid. You don't feel well after a cleanse so take it easy for a few days and eat a touch on the lighter side.

How you know you may need a cleanse - dig your fingers underneath the last rib on the right side of your ribcage and see if it's painful or even sore. There's also general symptoms of just not feeling well and you can't put your finger on it.

right from a 7 day master cleanse, my girlfriend and i did the gallbladder flush a long time ago, but not with coke-- we did it with garlic cloves and olive oil. she ended up passing a lot of US 10 cent and 5 cent greenish stones. i passed nothing, FWIW. with the excessive amounts of garlic you need to take with the olive oil, you could get nauseous but need to keep it down. i recall reading that it also helps to have a heating pad your side to ease the passing of the stones.
