About This Club

Sharing what works for you, please be careful to not prescribe for others.
  1. What's new in this club
  2. I brew up a brilliant mix of olive leaves, comfrey and thyme, all out of my garden, for lung problems.
  3. Hi Anniebea great topic especially these days! I am a Biomagnetic pair therapist, and am interested in wholesome natural alternatives too. Am thinking about learning more on nutrition / herbalism. Since I discovered how good herbal teas and vitamins are for us, (like actually personally as a family for real). Pine needle tea, dandelion tea, echinacea, cats claw, grapefruit seed extract, colloidal silver, hawthorn, and much more! Have you learnt anything really good recently!? Or any relevant new tips?
  4. Thanks so much for the information! I started having tinnitus about 15 years ago after getting a tetanus shot. I’ve heard a little about the use of magnets and definitely will check into this. Thanks again sister!
  5. They would need to be at least 1000 Gauss to have any real effect on the human body. (Thus I don’t really buy into those wee magnet bracelets etc although I would never dream of saying they don’t work because if you think they do then that’s halfway to a solution!) I get mine from Spain covered in leather, but I’m sure you can pick them up at hardware shop or online, I try and use natural ferrous magnets but man-made neodymium works aswell.
  6. Can you please define strong magnet? How do I know what is a strong vs. Weak magnet. I mean, j have magnets on my fridge that my granddaughter cannot pull off, but she's 1. How do I determine polarity? They all stick to the fridge.
  7. If you have any strong magnets, or pick up 2, use them as in this diagram. Leave on for 30 minutes I would use a headband or hat to keep them on. Also excellent is where you have one on each side, (but OPPOSITE polarity one negative on Theo left temple/ear area and one positive right temple /ear ) again 30 minutes. This will help tinnitus and also certain headaches.
  8. https://www.bellefleurphysio.com/ice/ THE USE OF ICE FOR INFLAMMATION: A PREHISTORIC APPROACH THAT SHOULD BE DISCONTINUED By Bellefleur Physiotherapy 2017 (In Injuries, Tips and Tricks) https://www.physio-network.com/blog/ice-for-acute-injury/ Ice was finally revoked in 2019 from the injury management process with the latest and most comprehensive acronym: PEACE & LOVE (Protection, Elevation, Avoid Anti-Inflammatory Drugs, Compression, Education & Load, Optimism, Vascularisation and Exercise)
  9. Thanks so much for your reply. While I know pretty much what to do to keep immune system built up I must admit major pain hasn't been an issue for me until now. Yes the massage feels good and helps tremendously. I'm getting more morbility back and pain is getting less. I haven't been consistent with taking oral things. I have only been taking oral supplements 1 or 2x a days I really need to get better at taking things. Since I have had the oil mixture I have done that a few times a day and it helps a lot. I truly appreciate all the advice I've received from everyone and will review it and implement what I can.
  10. Try icing the injuries. I like heat too but when I have very bad inflammation then icing helps. Does the massage feel good and help? If so, then you may need to get a massage gun and get into the area. I get locked up with the piriformis muscle (it’s in the upper buttock area) and it sets off my sciatic. The chiropractor I go to will actually use a massage tool to break up the fascia. He’s used his elbow before too. Ouch!!! After, I go home and ice it and it really helps to release the muscles and fascia and allow the fluid to move in the area. Epson salt baths Magnesium to the point of failure. Aka diarrhea Turmeric-make sure you are taking it frequently with a meal with black pepper or the supplement should include black pepper. I use DoTerra so for pain this is what I do/have: turneric supplements 3x per day when needed. Once per day on maintenance deep blue supplements. Same. deep blue oil. I put this on first then layer over deep blue lotion. I’ve made my own oil rub that includes the follow oils for pain: deep blue oil, copaiba, marjoram and lemongrass. With carrier oil. You can also do gentle exercise and stretching like Pilates to keep areas limber and the blood moving. I haven’t looked at the science on it but the chiropractor is always saying that getting blood flow moving in that area helps to bring down inflammation. I use ibuprofen as a last resort. Sometimes though, if I catch it early, I can use one dose of ibuprofen and that gets the inflammation down enough to where all my other remedies can stay on top of it. I forget to use them as much but you can also use homeopathy for pain. Arnica for muscles, Hypericum for nerve pain. Again, you start with very frequent doses and then slowly back down. My husband found relief from shoulder pain with glucosamine condroitin. That worked for him. Whenever you do natural remedies, you have to do something frequently. When we get sick, we take something every hour. I have things we rotate. It’s the same with pain. You can take something or do something every hour as long as you are rotating what you are using. I just watched Alone season 3. One of the women on there was an herbalist and healed her recluse spider bites with poultices and tea from plants. It can be done! But you have to be diligent. Just some ideas. I am not a doctor. 😉
  11. Just wondering if any one into natural health have any tips for pain such as using essential oils or specific herbal blends. I've tried boswella, magnesium and turmeric supplements but it doesn't seem to help much. I am not considering over the counter things like 'ibruprophen, asprin, tylenol etc.) as I've used them in the past and they messed up the lining of my tummy and are responsible for a lot of my digestive issues. Anyway, I got a bit too ambitious a couple Wednesdays ago and worked out too much in an online jw exercise class. I came in late so missed the majority of the warm ups. I hadn't done major exercise in a while so my body felt like it had been through major trauma afterwards. I rested for a while and then decided to start lifting heaving things in my house changing mattress sheets, etc. By the next day my lower right back and side above the hip bone were in major pain. I then decided to put one of those hot heat patches on it and it seemed to make the pain expand and get worst. I recently (last 3-4 days) have tried to make an essential oil blend of arnica, peppermint and wintergreen in a 2 oz bottle of oil. I am new to essential oils so I'm not sure if I am doing the blend correctly but it does seem to help some along with my teen daughter giving me a few massages. I've also been doing light exercises to try to make the muscles relax. I have been walking around smelling like life-savers wintergreen mints and in fear that one of my daughters will bite me as she's obsessed with those type of mints. 😂
  12. I love Crunchi. Not a consultant but their stuff is fabulous!
  13. Hello! Thanks for your posts! I came across this information about homeopathy and Covid19 and want to share with you friends.. https://arizonahomeopathic.org/homeopathy-and-covid-19/ also..Italian study.. https://homeopathic.com/italian-mds-study-results-on-homeopathic-treatment-of-50-covid-19-patients-none-of-whom-needed-hospitalization/
  14. I find that it really helps with inflammation and pain as well
  15. I swear by turmeric when sick. I feel it truly helped when I had the flu.
  16. Luvdogz did you ever get rid of your tinnitus? I have had it about 15 years and would love for it to be gone!
  17. I do oil pulling off and on. My brother who is skeptical on anything I suggest will do the oil pulling as he sees the difference in stopping tooth aches. ive noticed the same that if a tooth starts hurting I’ll start up with the oil pulling again and the aches go away. then I always rinse after because of its ability to cross blood brain barrier and pull toxins- I don’t want that in my mouth lol. also once my husband was doing oil pulling once and fell asleep and swallowed it. Well he was running to restroom almost immediately- so yep rinsing definitely a plus So I rinse really weL and then i brush With just a sonic toothbrush And good to go
  18. The help that Dr Andrew Saul and Dr Cheng Ruan sent to Shanghai to help those in hospital with Covid-19 is now being used in New York: https://nypost.com/2020/03/24/new-york-hospitals-treating-coronavirus-patients-with-vitamin-c/ At home we can take vitamin C , up to bowel tolerance, with a meal 1000 mg 2 or 3 times a day. We have effervescent sugar free tablets from the supermarket to give this good dosage. Get out in the sunshine for 30 minutes at lunchtime when in the Northern Hemisphere we get the most Vitamin D activating sunshine. Vitamin D - is actually a hormone - is used as well as C in our immune system. As the article says above, C helps our bodies fight sepsis. Zinc glucanate is another needed.
  19. Just wanted to include some links to medical sources that support that these spices are useful (not a cure) in boosting the immune. CEYLON CINNAMON: In traditional medicine Cinnamon is considered a remedy for respiratory, digestive and gynecological ailments. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3854496/ GINGER: In ancient cultures, medical practitioners focused on herbs for promoting the immune systems of body. In many countries ginger and its products raise the immune system International Journal of Preventive Medicine: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3665023/ LEMON: Citrus fruits as a treasure trove of active natural metabolites that potentially provide benefits for human health Medical Journal: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4690266/ CAYENNE PEPPER: contains vitamin C, which also supports the immune system https://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/267248 TURMERIC: "Spicing up" of the immune system by curcumin https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17211725 HONEY: as a Potential Natural Antioxidant Medicine: An Insight ... https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5822819/ ARTICLE: 5 Spices to boost your immune system: https://blog.publicgoods.com/5-spices-to-boost-your-immune-system/ NOTE: This is not mean to indicate they are a cure it's just a preventive measure to help boost the immune.
  20. This is not a cure it's just steps that all 5 people in my household have been taking daily to build our immune system. I have a daughter who has a weak immune regiment so this was given to me for her and was told it is also good for anyone in the household that want to build their immune system. -1 green tea bag (Organic) -1/2 tsp Organic Turmeric -1/2 tsp Organic Ginger -1/2 tsp Organic Ceylon Cinnamon (sometimes called sweet cinnamon) NOTE: Not all cinnamon is the same. Most the stuff in the store is cassia type and is a cheapy version with no health benefits. -dash of cayenne pepper (rid you of mucus) -1/2 tsp of vanilla (for taste) *1/2 tsp wild desert hone or raw honey (optional we don't use any sweetener) *My daughter who has a weak immune system and my other daughter use a vanilla stevia to help with taste so they are not using anything that turns to sugar. FYI: it's can be drank warm in winter months or served on ice in the warm months 🙁 ==== as added support ==== VITAMIN "C" We take 5g (1 tsp) daily of camu camu powder (it's a natural vitamin c). Hubby takes (10g) daily since he is going in the public If I feel something sinister coming on I will usually double my dosage to 10g or more. Camu camu taste awful. It can be put in juice, smoothies, etc. to mask it. However since I'm on a keto diet I don't do sweeten things much so I just take it in a bit of water with a few liquid pure monkfruit drops (which is not mixed with anything else). I try to gulp it down in 1 swallow as it's very bitter. Vitamin C is really powerful and can be increased based on what you are trying work on. You have to do research on dosages. Too much could cause you to go to the bathroom. There is plenty of information on dosages and the bathroom effect and how to deal with it. I can't use traditional vitamin c which is made in the lab (asorbic acid and ester forms) as they are from corn and I have developed allergies to corn. I've saw that most corn today is gmo variety and I am beginning to believe it as my body knows if I eat things with corn. Unfortunately today everything has corn in some form. "High fructose corn syrup" is the worst. ======= Disclaimer ======= I'm not a doctor and am not prescribing anything. This information is meant for informational purposes.

  21. Ri-disc-ulous! Social distancing, advised by WHO, involves maintaining at least 1 metre (3 feet) distance between yourself and anyone who coughs or sneezes, as the small liquid droplets sprayed could contain the virus.
  22. My husband and I belong to Life Extensions and I take their "Mega Green Tea Extract" 98% Polyphenols.
  23. https://drmasley.com/corona-update/?inf_contact_key=1dc0f4ce9ffd64e81ddeea4e378284ae1b0a3f0fd3ee5d9b43fb34c6613498d7 Dr Masley's general advice and information of what works and why - face masks any good? etc
  24. https://www.naturalhealth365.com/essential-oils-antiviral-antifungal-3325.html Essential oils that have a known antimicrobial action that can be used safely around the home to keep bugs at bay.
  25. Hope to use this area of the site to share any information for anyone wanting to build themselves up to endure and survive or prevent illness like a virus. We know external things to do like washing and social distancing, but there are ideas out there to help us help ourselves we could also try. These things are not cures, just helps and we should not take anything different without Doc's advice in case of one thing we take spoiling the action of a medication we need. https://wholefoodsmagazine.com/columns/vitamin-connection/vitamin-c-and-the-immune-system-nutritional-fortification-to-support-defenses-against-viruses/?fbclid=IwAR0rpaocsmzZ5oJHcK4FIK-okEi-JWt9iGVrE60X8Z22umfCCoxi0-EzpJU
  26. I was recently introduced to a personal care line (skin care, makeup and more) that I am loving (even my husband loves their products). Its called beautycounter and if any would like to learn more and are in the pacific northwest (USA) I would be happy to get together and share the products with them personally, as I recently became a consultant with them. I am also happy to share samples for any interested outside my area via mail. I am in Central Oregon but have several events planned in California, the first being next month in California (March 2020) You can also visit my website at https://www.beautycounter.com/sandyspurling to learn more, or feel free to contact me (PM for my info). They ship products to the US, APO/FPO/DPO, US territories, and Canada. At this time they are not available overseas for shipping direct. Anyway since I love their products so much I wanted to share it with other friends.
