awesome

I had been recomended red raspberry leaf tea for pregnancy support. I make up a 4 cup batch by bringing 4 cups of water to a boil (in a sauce pan.) Then I remove it from heat and stir in 1/4 cup leaf, cover, and let it steep for 15 minutes. After that I strain it into a glass jar and put it in the frig to be drunk throughout the day. Usually I drink a cup warm just after making it. It tastes great warm or cold. It's good with lemon, too, but then I add honey. The taste reminds me of black tea. The first time I made it I liked it so well I drank 3 cups in one sitting, but later I felt more nautious. I threw up a bunch of bile; I think it was making me throw off some toxins. Later my morning sickness seemed to be improving, so I guess it was a good thing. I also find it increases my energy level if I drink 3 or 4 cups every day. I am hoping it will make childbirth faster and easier as some report, but it will be a while before I know anything about that. Just the extra energy is worth it!

Phytocillin is one of my favorite remedies for infectious illness. When that annoying cold you have goes from clear colored nasal mucus to gross yellow snot, that is the time to use Phytocillin. We find it works well for sinus infections and generally works fast if you use frequent dosages. i like that it is anti-fungal as well as antibiotic (unlike medical antibiotics). We use 20 drops every 2 hours, reducing the frequency as the symptoms subside. For children we use a fraction of the adult dose, depending on the size of the child. We keep this stuff on hand so it is available whenever we need it.

We like tea tree oil for various purposes. I like that it is a natural anti-fungal. We add it to emu oil to make an anti-inflammatory deoderant. We add 10 drops to the dryer as an antisceptic and deoderizer. Sometimes I add 20 drops to the washer if the clothing is especially dirty and nasty.

wonderful stuff

This form of magnesium is extremely absorbable since its already pre dissolved in water when you take it. And since it has stevia in it and lemon flavor it really tastes pretty good. It is useful for sore muscles, high blood pressure caused by magnesium deficiency, constriction of all kinds. Within minutes after drinking the stuff, you can feel your whole body relax. Since it is an oral form of magnesium, it is also particularly helpful for constipation. In fact, you will want to watch dosage carefully in the beginning to avoid diarrhea caused by an excess of magnesium in the digestive tract. This doesn't mean you have too much magnesium. Rather, being extremely magnesium deficient you are unable to absorb as much of the magnesium as one would like. The enzymes that bring magnesium into the body from the digestive tract are themselves magnesium dependent. If one is in very short supply of necessary magnesium, the enzymes that absorb magnesium are in short supply also. You may have to work up gradually on dosage. Magnesium oil is a topical form that does not require the enzymes for absorption, but it does not have such a fast benefit in cases of constipation. A larger than usual dose of Natural Calm will take care of constipation quickly.

good quality

Posted on Nov 13, 2014

This is a good quality of dried ginger root to use for making decoctions. I simmered 4 teaspoons of this in 4 cups of water to make some ginger tea. But I found it a little too spicy for my taste. Next time I will use 2 teaspoons per quart of water. Naturally you will want to add some honey to it. It makes a nice warming drink this time of the year. And it is great for colds and sore throats too.

anti-inflammatory oil

Posted on Jun 10, 2014

This oil is anti-inflammatory and soothing to irritated skin. We use it together with tea tree oil to make a simple and non-irritating deoderant. This is especially useful when one has a rash under the arms.

not sure

Posted on Oct 25, 2010

I haven't noticed much difference in taking one of these before each meal. I had been recomended to take enzymes for overall health benefits. Last time I tried a cheaper variety, with no apparent effect. This time I tried a more expensive, higher quality brand. Still no apparent effect. Maybe I just don't need these, or maybe I'm still in search of a better brand.
