I have wanted an essential oil diffuser forever. I live on a budget and could never afford one. Let alone the oil itself.

I found both on clearance at a local store!

But, what was unique was the scent. A baby scent called sweet dreams. Very calming.

So, if you ever need something non-toxic and want to rest, search for the above.

Any recommendations for tick preventive for my dog? She (and we) are coming inside with several ticks every time we take a walk. Live in a wooded area....

Thanks for any help you can give!

emoticon Serrapeptase to my knowledge is used as an anti-inflammatory. I don't know anyone that uses it. I think it is used more in Japan and Europe. Although I use alternative medicines I tend to be cautious using them as I do with pharmaceuticals. It took me a long time to use liquid turmeric as an anti-inflammatory. I slowly used it in the beginning to see if I could detect any side effects and now I use it almost every day. My homeopathic doctor also suggested frankincense, but still a little hesitant. I know it has been used medicinally for centuries but I associate it with incense. Does anyone use frankincense?

@DAINFL , I'm not a doctor and never heard of iserrapeptase but if my cholesterol was high, I'd lower it naturally by eliminating animal products (high in cholesterol and saturated fats). If you're wondering about protein. All veggies, fruit, nuts and grains have protein, especially beans and no cholesterol or saturated fats. Best wishes.

Hi everyone. I'm an old member who left awhile and came back. I want to ask what people here think of serrapeptase. I was told to take it for my high cholesterol, but it's awfully expensive, so I'd like to hear from people who have had success with it.

I also heard it is good for getting rid of cysts and fatty tumors, and one person had said it cured her Morton's Neuroma, which is caused by scar tissue wrapping around a nerve in your foot.

Benefits of Ginger
Maintains Normal Blood Circulation. Ginger contains chromium, magnesium and zinc which can help to improve blood flow, as well as help prevent chills and fevers,
Remedies Motion Sickness. Ginger is a known effective remedy for the nausea associated with motion sickness.
Improves absorption. Ginger improves the absorption and stimulation of essential nutrients in the body. It does this by stimulating gastric and pancreatic enzyme secretion.
Cold and Flu Prevention. Ginger has been used for thousands of years as a natural treatment for colds and flu around Asia.
Combats Stomach Discomfort. Ginger is ideal in assisting digestion, thereby improving food absorption and avoiding possible stomach ache. Ginger appears to reduce inflammation in a similar way to aspirin and ibuprofen
Reduce Pain and Inflammation. Ginger contains some of the most potent anti-inflammatory fighting substances known and is a natural powerful painkiller.
Fights Common Respiratory Problems. If you’re suffering from common respiratory diseases such as a cough, ginger aids in expanding your lungs and loosening up phlegm because it is a natural expectorant that breaks down and removes mucus.. That way you can quickly recover from difficulty in breathing.
Strengthens Immunity. Ginger helps improve the immune system. Consuming a little bit ginger a day can help foil potential risk of a stroke by inhibiting fatty deposits from the arteries. It also decreases bacterial infections in the stomach, and helps battle a bad cough and throat irritation.
Combats Morning Sickness.

There are sites that have drug interactions, be careful they are good sites. I add the powder to food but when taken as a pill they are often stronger, more concentrated.

hi i haven't posted for years, kinda got away from health but I'm back older and I hope a little wiser. I have heard that turmeric is very good for you and can be used therapeutically. My wife is taking prednisone for an inflammatory eye problem, her chiropractor suggested she take tumeric. Question will tumeric react in a negative way with the prednisone

Has been ages since I posted but have been pretty sick since 2 mths.Now on the road to recovery!
The road is rough but certain!Am eating eating more omega-3 containing foods-chia seeds and flax seeds added to every thing and drinking hibiscus tea!
Also increasing yoga-now s/p bilateral knee replacements and a gatric resection.The latter does not automatically mean weight loss if the emotional eating is not handling.!
So filling up with fluids is very important and walking is a simpl e enough exercise.



Indian standard Time!Now 54 yrs old.Had a Sleeve Gastrectomy and like most of us who have had this survey-it is a welcome surgery and ,howeer a radical lifestyle change-in diet,exercise,evrything.Weight is down by 20 kilos.That is a whole new me but I need to lose a couple of 5 more kilose hopefully due to newly diagnosed psoriatic arthritis.Well here's to all of us ,everybody!I am on a new challenge that
involves decorating the using SPARKPAGE DECORATING & VOTING CONTEST thread as shown.by

How To Make Your Own Natural Antibiotic
June 7, 2018

Make-Your-Own-Natural-AntibioticAntibiot
ic resistance is becoming a really big threat to public safety.

This phenomenon occurs when bacteria that has been exposed to antibiotics begin to develop a resistance. This doesn’t occur in individuals, but in the bacteria themselves, making it a health threat to anyone.

According to the World Health Organization, antimicrobial resistance is present in all parts of the world with new resistance mechanisms emerging and spreading globally. (source)


Luckily, mother nature has a few natural options that can still fight antibacterial-resistant bacteria.

How To Make Your Own Antibiotic
Ingredients:

1 garlic clove
2 tbsp honey
2 tbsp ginger powder
1/2 tbsp ground chili peppers
1/2 tbsp cinnamon
3.3 oz fresh lemon juice
Instructions:

Crush garlic and set aside for 10-15 minutes. This activates it’s most powerful compound, allicin.
Add crushed garlic, ginger powder, chili powder and cinnamon to the lemon juice.
Mix these ingredients.
Stir in the honey.
Let the syrup rest for 3 hours on a room temperature. Keep the syrup in a glass jar with a lid and store it in the fridge.
How To Use:

Take 1 tablespoon daily to strengthen your immune system. If you’re suffering from an infection, take 1 tablespoon of the syrup, three times a day before each meal.

Wow! Great source of information! One thing that I discovered last year that has really helped me especially with mood and energy is 100% pure Cacao powder. I honestly believe this helped my A1C levels also. I discovered this when I became a "baby vegan"

Slow-paced music has been shown to lower heart rate and blood pressure. When feeling stress, put on some slow-paced music to relax, unwind and de-stress.

Research found that having too much or too little sleep can interfere with your ability to control your appetite because it simultaneously increases the hunger hormone ghrelin while it decreases the satisfaction hormone leptin

Today has been OK. How about with you?

I played BINGO . A bunch of us get together and play for prizes as opposed to playing for money. I like to win items for gift baskets or stuff for myself to snack on. Today, I won peanut butter and pretzel sticks. Not sure if I myself want them or to place in gift baskets yet.
Hey! Don't laugh! LOL

It poured down raining earlier today, also, but now it is just cloudy and cool.

I am having my iced coffee but there is something not right. Anymore, my iced coffee just does not taste good. I make the iced coffee like I always do. The devil is NOT going to win this battle! If I do not drink booze and do not do drugs, then I AM going to drink iced coffee. Any suggestions?

I found a health coach job to send a resume to, but not sure if I will. With my present job, if you think about, I have it made. I do not have to pay for my own websites, I can write and edit and publish whatever I want, make a difference in people's lives, be seen all over the world, I can telecommute. This means, no car payments, no having to spend money on lunches, not having to buy expensive clothes, (heck, I can work in my jammies), I can make my own hours, never get bored, see?

I thought I would help out the Easter Bunny and use coupons @ Dollar Tree to get chocolate for Easter. I had 4 coupons good for 8 huge bags of M & M's. Who should the Easter Bunny give it all to? This should be interesting...

Well, I will sign off for now. Be good and Sparkmail me!

Sincerely,

I was away on vacation for a week and am finally able to do my Sparkteams! Did you miss me? LOL

I just do not understand my weight... The entire week I had been on vacation, I drank coffee and unsweetened iced tea with lemon. I gained 2 pounds! I have a book called "The Ultimate Tea Diet" and thought I would 2 things...incorporate unsweetened iced tea with lemon into my lifestyle and also be able to save money by doing so by making homemade iced tea with inexpensive tea bags. What did I do wrong? uuugh

I have dinner fired up in the crockpot... Vegetable Soup! What I like is that veggies are "free" food and I used up tomato juice that was just sitting there in the fridge. I like to have 1 to 2 meatless meals every 7 days. I would never survive as a vegetarian but I look at animals and think "How could we do such a thing to them..." Know what I mean?

Last night was really rough. I had an panic attack and anxiety. I would not wish it on my worst enemy. I attempted to control it by staying in front of the television with "Impractical Jokers" on. Kindly pray it will not happen again.

Well, my 2 cents for now... Have a blessed Sunday and be good!

Hey there!

Today, I placed groceries away, did an article, washed dishes (numerous occasions), got garbage ready,...

My housemate was in our garage. I went to go talk to her and saw my futon I had forgotten completely about. It is a futon chair, but as you know futons may open up to be a bed. When I moved in years ago, I stored it in the garage and forgot all about. I usually do not go in our garage. It is my housemate's little cave. So, anyway, I placed it in my office. Now, if I get tired of my desk, I can chill on the futon.

I might get to see my mother on Sunday! I am so excited!

I have been searching through stuff I do not need, to give up, for this Lent. I have 2 more bags of clothes to give away. I think i need to go through some shoes.

Have you ever wished there were a team on Sparkpeople that interested you but did not exist? What team would it be?

Well, I have to work late with my boutique. I will make sure I get in my pedaling!

Be good!

Hello! I have returned from my hometown. I miss my family already.

I have requested to become an editor for 6 more sites and have already received word of 3 that are NOT available. Wish me luck on the 3 that are left.

I am making German Potato Salad with Kielbasa in the crockpot for dinner. A quick recipe to throw together.

I keep saying that I am going to get more activity, but now truly mean it. My favorite workout DVD is called Walking With Joyce Vedral. I just get so intimidated as I want to have her same body. But, it will take a good 2 years to accomplish. Wish me luck. LOVECAROL has almost convinced me to attempt yoga. What is your take on yoga?

I hope you have a wonderful weekend! Be good!

Well... Last night did not go as planned...

I had wanted to do reviews, read Eat To Trim again and make some make-ahead salads. I got really sleepy. So, I thought I would take a little siesta. I just laid there. But could not sleep. So, then anxiety kicked in. So, I started to review and just got frustrated. So, I did 10 minutes of a Joyce Vedral walking DVD. I got frustrated. Got on my laptop. I got frustrated. Why I was so frustrated is beyond me. I wanted to make some make-ahead salads but the jars needed cleaned and cleaning jars in the middle of the night seemed a bit insane. LOL

Then, I have 3 ice cube trays in the freezer for my iced coffee. This morning I went to make iced coffee and a person used 2 of the trays and did not refill the ice cube trays... Of course, neither housemate will confess.

A friend is taking me to the post office today to mail my mother a care package. I cannot wait! It is a very very healthy care package.

I cannot seem to get past this plateau. I STILL weigh 160 pounds. The scale just will not budge.

I wanted to take on a pro-life team, but got afraid. In the past, I was punished by people for being active in the pro-life movement. I do not want to step on the wrong toes again. I will just keep my beliefs to myself.

Well, I will sign off for now. Be good!

Not for me it would not suit me. I like a team that is kind of all rounded if you like. One that has challenges, small weekly ones with prizes awarded, one where you can put your weigh-ins weekly, one that shares recipes food and drink recipes, natural alternatives to medications, natural heath and healing topics / links.

One that has saving money tips, cleaning tips, household tips, one that shares exercises tips and you can post if you have done yours for the day. A team that you put in when you have had your water how many glasses for the day. Also one where you track openly to the team your food intake for the whole day (it makes you accountable to someone) Not just on the nutrition tracker that's awesome keep doing that but telling people in team what you had all day for every meal makes you think twice about eating the wrong thing as you know someone is going to know whether or not they judge is not the issue more so that they actually know. It would work for me anyhow.

A team that shares positive affirmations / quotes. A team that actively shares stuff not just one or two members or the team leaders. a team that shares their vision boards and is encouraged to make one and share it if you don't already have one. a team where the members actually share a picture of themselves not just a clipart of google image one where you can really see and get to know the people.

A team that shares gardening and growing your own foods tips. One that shares a question of the day or question of the week.

One that shares helpful topics.

This is the sort of team I would like to see personally myself. I sound like I should start one I know right LOL and include all this but I do not have the time if someone else starts it I would join it though! These are all the things that would be helpful to me in a team. this would help a lot of people I'm sure keep their teams to a minimum be help them live a simplified life (with less teams) and actually get somewhere with their weightloss healthy lifestyle plans.

Just my thoughts. but in answer to your question after I rambled on just a team on Drinks and rink recipes alone would not suit me. It may suit some though just not me.

Just my thoughts. Have a super day all. emoticon

Hey team!

Out of curiosity, would you be interested in a Sparkteam about healthy drinks? Anywhere from smoothies to mocktails? If so, would you tell me? I would appreciate!

The sun has not been out in over a week. For my job today, I did a short article on the topic of the winter blues . I made up a list of how to cope with it. Good for people to print out and post where they can see it when in need.

I have some library e-books saved to review for the newspaper i volunteer for. I still do not know which I like better...paper books or e-books. Next download, I will maybe learn how to utilize my tablet instead of my laptop for reading library books. Tablets are still new to me though.

My pedometer is still working... Woo Hoo!

I made a JoAnna M. Lund dish today for dinner called "Easy Pot Spaghetti". I thought it was delicious. A housemate of mine said the pasta was "too done". For real?

My diet is going good. Slim-Fast/WW/JoAnna M. Lund Recipes. I am doing something right as my family physician is discontinuing a medicine. I simply want to get in more activity. Believe me, I know what to do. I need either a motivation board or some motivational posters. When I see the friend feed, I get so jealous. People exercise ALL DAY. How do they manage this?

IAMHEALTHY11, thank you for the advice!

Well, I am signing off for now. Be good!

Just thought I would post the link to the FENUGREEK article that the little lady asked about here plus something else I found:

draxe.com/fenugreek/#

Sam2016 on Nov 23, 2016 said:

I used Fenugreek and it is very beneficial for health. In Algeria, a long ago, we used to use Fenugreek like a medicine for pain, and many diseases. For example, for lactating women, it was used to have more milk.

Also women used it to relieve menstruation discomfort. It also works for breast enlargement. My wife has used it on and off and she has noticed a big difference in her size. It has helped me with spinal column pain.

I buy ground Fenugreek and make tea with it. I put 2 tablespoons of ground fenugreek in 750 ml of boiled water and let it sit for a few minutes and drink it. It helps with many health conditions.

looks like it could be a good thing to make a tea with and that would be an easy way to take it perhaps.

thank you! I just recently had surgery that required a donor site for a graft on my nose. I will look into Medihoney for both sites


Hospitals are terrific for traumatic care; for acute care. They do a really, really good job in saving lives when it's a sudden bleeding emergency. But in terms of chronic care, they're terrible; (that is) in terms of the illnesses that most people have, endure, that cost the most money, that last the longest and ultimately die from. -Dr. Andrew Saul

About the Medi honey or medical honey

Here is an image of the one I have used and always keep on hand:



Here also is a link that explains more about it better than I could:

www.dermasciences.com/medihoney

As for ingredients:

Medihoney™ Antibacterial Honey is a standardised medical grade of antibacterial honey collected predominantly fromLeptospermum species. (including Manuka).  This combination of Leptospermum honeys has been developed using advanced scientific knowledge to maximise honey’s potential to assist healing.

Key Ingredients are: Manuka Honey, Olive Leaf Extract and Propolis

Hope this helps.

thank you for those suggestions; I think they are very good.
"MEDI Honey" sounds like a brand named thing. Is it manuka honey? Maybe with some other helpful ingredients?

I really like Medi Honey. I had a blister once on my foot that popped and became infected. I put medi honey on it daily and at night with a bandage. After two weeks it was gone.

Everyone kept telling me to go to a doctor and that I would need anti-biotics. The Medi Honey really worked.

I also like Eucalyptus Oil in a bowl of boiling water if you have asthma or a cold. put your head over the bowl of steam with a towel over your head and breathe normally and take it in.

Another good remedy for the stomach is Caraway Tea Boiling up about 1 tablespoon of the seeds in a pot of boiling water once boiling simmer for 5 minutes. Strain and drink! Have it as it is or add 1 teapsoon on honey to the tea.

Thank you for your insight. I'll look up a naturopath doctor. That was great advice! I did talk to a natural health store owner (well, the owner's wife) and she recommended an oral probiotic specifically formulated for vaginal health. I've been on that for about 2 weeks now and I think it's helping, but it's so hard to say. Ever since my hysterectomy I seem prone to getting them. But it's every few weeks or so, so I'll have to see how I'm doing within the next two or three weeks. If I'm still good, then I'll have to believe it's the pills helping. It's so hard when you're taking a pill to figure out if it's working or not. I don't want to waste money either!

Thanks again for your help! emoticon

Not a weird question at all. Many of us have suffered with this. Not fun!

What I have read and have come to believe is that yeast infections aren't just surface irritations but are actually an indication that the sufferer has yeast overgrowth higher up and in many cases throughout the uterus and other organs. What I have read is that just dealing with the surface problem rarely takes care of yeast overgrowth. Going to a naturopathic doctor is the first best thing to get you started on the right kind of diet that will kill off those bad boogers and also get you going on strong, reliable pro-biotics. A naturopathic doctor may have some safe remedies for the surface irritations as well to help you be comfortable during the die-off period. I can't recommend more highly that you should see a naturopath.

Some tips:
Sugar feeds yeast - stay away from it.'
Try a very diluted solution of apple cider vinegar (naturally fermented) as a light, gentle douche.
Drink apple cider vinegar as well full strength or diluted, your preference.
If you eat yogurt stay away from the mass marketed, sweetened, phony ones. Stick to plain, real yogurt. But yogurt itself has nowhere near the amount of pro-biotics that you need. You really need to take pro-biotics in pill form. Ask a naturopathic doctor about this and get the right kind and dosage. Well, you can't really overdose on them but you could waste your money.

Best of everything and get well.

This may be a bit of a weird question: but has anyone used any of the recommended natural treatments for yeast infections? I'm talking about actually using either a clove of garlic or plain, unsweetened yogurt as a topical treatment. (I'm trying to be delicate about how I was instructed to use these items. It was not to ingest but as a TOPICAL TREATMENT of sorts). Somehow I just feel weird about using food in that area. But I'd love to know if it actually WORKS and there's no issues with doing so (side effects, etc).

Thuja homeopathic ointment works great on the occasional wart I get. It hasn't worked as well on some skin tags I have despite the television commercials saying it will. It only partially works on them.

Great for the cold and flu season. If I could choose only one... it would be the grapefruit seed extract. From personal experience, it does the job quick and fast. To a healthy 2016!

oil of oregano -capsule (validated full spectrum carvacrol)
olive leaf extract -capsule (standardized at least 20% oleuropein)
grapefruit seed extract (liquid concentrate) unfiltered formula

MY4KITTIES,
"deep conditioning treatment:
Use regular hair conditioner - add a dollop of honey, a little olive oil (about a tablespoon), and several drops of tea tree oil. Add mixture to hair and cover with a shower cap. Leave on for 30 minutes. My hair feels really soft for a couple of days. Since this is a deep conditioner, I only do this once a week."
Is this applied to dry or wet hair?

Cynthia

Sorry, seems things have changed since I used the strong stuff. Now "food grade" can also refer to 8% and it plus higher percentage HP can be found here: www.foodgrade-hydrogenperoxide.com/
