Okay, here are some oldies but goodies……………..

Cut up an onion and put beside the bed if having trouble breathing at night. Onions absorb bacteria ( which is why you should never eat onions from a salad bar) and helps keep airways and sinus’ open. Especially helpful with infants.

Slice a small piece of garlic and rub on the soles of the feet, especially the balls of the feet. (This is the reflex area for lungs.) This will activate the immune system and help with respitory issues.

Warm oil of garlic and Dr. Christoher’s ear oil works well for ear aches. Just warm a little and spoon or put in a dropper and put in the ear. Put a small amount of cotton in the ear opening to hold the oil in. 

Mastitis: Green cabbage, chopped up fine and then ground even finer into a pulp. You can add a little warm water if needed to make a poultice. Apply to affected breast area and secure with plastic wrap. You can also use a warm hot water bottle if desired. Leave on overnight and you should have good results.

One of my favorites!! Cayenne pepper. This works well for cuts, sore throats, infections, etc. You can mix a small amount on a spoon and apply to cuts or abrasions. It will sting but keep infection out and speeds up the healing process. For colds or sore throats, take 1/10 th of a teaspoon in a about 4-6 ounces of water and drink it down. It will burn for a minute or two but aids greatly in sore throats. Always make sure you have food on your stomach before ingesting cayenne pepper. Ironically it also aids in healing stomach ulcers.

Cinnamon aids with digestion, circulation, regulating blood sugar, bladder infections and much more. As odd as it may sound, you can use a small amount of cinnamon in your underwear to help with urinary tract infections. Works well for seniors.
