Nature's Secret Antibiotic

Doctor's don't recommend it because many have probably not even heard of it. In my experience of medical school, it was the drug companies that led the healing program. One was either expected to be medicated or operated on. Those appeared to be the choices and it was extremely disheartening for me because of my experience with alternatives. That was a long time before hearing about nature's secret antibiotic.

Colloidal Silver first came to my attention some 20 years ago when I was also introduced to pycnogenol, a product derived from the bark of Maritime Prime trees. It was at a time when my back was in trauma due to a slipped disc and the miracle of the latter worked to overcome it. Meanwhile the other had a completely different use.

Silver was highly regarded in most societies for its healing and keeping qualities. In Rome vats or containers made from it were used widely to store foodstuffs. Some people still use silverware on the table to hold things like milk, salt, cheese, and so on. While it has mainly been replaced by china and other materials that require less cleaning it is history that teaches us of its value.

There are a lot of technical pages on the Internet abut the pros and cons of colloidal silver, and not all are positive. Speaking from my own experience, however, it works wonders for me when the first signs of a flu virus make their presence felt.

The local Health Food Shop sells hospital grade and this is possibly the best. About five to seven squirts into a glass of water every half hour or so will quickly get rid of the symptoms. This can be as rapid as two to three hours. My niece takes it to halt her asthma attacks and it can also be used eternally or topically on eczema or other skin conditions.

I use it liberally on abrasions as well to stop infections. All up it is a great product and one highly recommended by me for anyone looking for a quick halt to virus symptoms. No medical antibiotic works in that way.

It is said that colloidal silver is a cure for more than 60 conditions while a normal antibiotic is only good for 2 or 3. There are no side effects if used correctly and only the good quality ones are purchased. Like anything on the market there are different brands and not all are equal.

Getting Started With Essential Oils

Plant Therapy Essential Oils

As more and more people are beginning to say YES to more natural alternatives to their health and wellness, essential oils are becoming the answer that many have been looking for. We know that, although there is definitely a place for modern medicine, we are learning that there are a number of common ailments and physical discomforts that can be managed naturally with essential oils, and this "trend" isn't going away anytime soon.

So, what exactly are essential oils? There are aromatic compounds found in plants that help plants survive, ward off pests and stay healthy. These oils can be round in the roots, stems, bark, leaves, flowers and seeds of plants and have a variety of physical, mental and emotional benefits.

Essential oils are very potent, meaning that they are quite strong and only need to be used in small amounts. They are much more potent than herbs, so a little goes a long way. As an example, did you know that 1 drop of peppermint oil is equivalent to 28 cups of peppermint tea? These oils are powerful, yet they can do so much!

Before using essential oils, it's important to understand how to choose a good quality oil. This is important, because unfortunately, there isn't a regulating body overseeing the ingredients that go into the bottles that you see on the shelves. This means that consumers are often assuming that they are purchasing 100% "pure" essential oils, when in fact; most of the ingredients in the bottle are synthetic (fake) ingredients, toxins and fillers.

A good quality essential oil is sourced from the part of the world where the plant naturally grows and thrives. The soil conditions and climate are ideal for the plant to survive, and the farmers are intimately connected with these plants, how to take care of them, when to harvest, etc.

Make sure that the oil has been tested multiple times, to ensure that there are no fillers, toxins and foreign material that would compromise the oil. Third party testing ensures unbiased protocols, and the oils that travel to the consumer are safe, pure and therapeutic.

High-quality oil is potent and is to be used sparingly as a result of its strength. While some brands of essential oils are "watered down" and diluted with fillers and other synthetic ingredients, real pure essential oils are full strength and don't require as many drops in order to enjoy similar effects.

So, what are some of the benefits of essential oils?

There are so many more benefits than what I am able to share here, but here are some of the more common ways in which these oils support health and wellness:

Increased energy 
Improved sleep 
Digestive relief 
Lessens and/or eliminates pain 
Supports focus and concentration 
Relieves sore joints and muscles 
Reduces stress 
Improves mood 
Replaces household cleaners and skin care products

Think about some of the daily products that you use for some of these examples. In which areas would you be open to trying a more natural approach? The great thing about these oils is that there are no side effects, just side benefits, so your entire body reaps the rewards of these beautiful oils. I encourage you to learn more about how essential oils can support a greater sense of well-being in your life and in your home. You'll be glad you did!

Natural Remedies for Your Children

By Jenetta Haim  | Submitted On July 14, 2017

Being a parent I'm sure you have had your share of runny noses and high temperatures, which can be very stressful. Children can get sick for different reasons to adults and we need to be aware that their needs may be different from ours. Many times parent stress out and worry which unintentionally add to the child's stress and they feel worse. A child getting sick is a normal part of growing up. The colds, fevers and tummy aches are helping our child's immunity to build. They may not be nice to go through but building immunity is important, as it will help if more serious illness strikes. Many times, I have found stressed, desperate parents just don't know what to do so I have put together here some natural ways you can help your child and not be so stressed yourself.

The most common illness we find children get is colds and fevers. Fevers are a sign that there is an infection somewhere. The fever itself is not actually an illness but a symptom that there is something else going on in the body. The fever causes the white cells to move to the infection to help heal itself. Even though this is the case we still need to treat high temperatures as they can have some serious side effects. When treating a fever, we must first make sure the child is cool by removing blankets, clothing and/or placing a cold face washer over the child's forehead. If necessary put them in a lukewarm bath but if the fever is high take them to a hospital. Do not mess around with a high fever - in children or adults without medical advice. We must also make sure the child is not dehydrated so get them to drink as much water as possible. Good teas to give them are diluted peppermint and raspberry and also slippery elm. Food should be light such as fruit, which can easily be digested.

Colds are also commonly present when there is a fever. Two great remedies for children are Echinacea tea or drops and garlic, if they will take garlic. Your also need to make sure they go to the toilet daily and that their digestion is working. If the child is constipated warm water usually helps get the bowel moving again. For the cough, a natural syrup made of lemon, pineapple juice and honey. Honey helps to remove the mucus and ease the coughing; the lemon will help soothe the throat and acts like a cleaning agent and the pineapple juice will help fight the infection. For older children finely chopped Spanish onion mixed with honey will help fight the infection and soothe the throat, the struggle however may be getting them to eat it as it does not taste that great.

If you find your baby has diarrhoea, rice or barley water can be effective and you can continue to give them this until the diarrhoea has completely gone. Slippery elm also works for adults and children alike and is good for the digestion. Be sure to use the powder as it works better. Another good way to help relieve the symptoms is carrot soup, however this needs to be watered down until very weak. If your child does not respond to natural treatment then you may need to consult your chemist who will have other treatments of the shelf as it is very important to keep the electrolytes up and keep the child hydrated.

Colic can also be worrying for parents as it makes your baby uncomfortable and often screaming in pain. Food that can cause it include cow's milk, eggs, corn, tomatoes, wheat, cabbage, garlic, onions, chocolate and beans. Some of these foods may still affect your milk while you are breast feeding so give them a miss. You can try not eating dairy or wheat products for a week or two and see if this has a positive effect on your child. Also, you can try baby massage. Take some warm oil and massage your baby's stomach in a clockwise direction, then move to the baby's legs and while massaging the legs move them in a bicycle motion to help relieve their wind then turn baby around and massage their back in an up and down motion. Massage will not only help baby with wind but you will find they are calmer and it's a great way to bond with your little one.

Soon enough your little one will be able to eat solids which brings with it a whole new challenge. Sometimes solid foods can trigger sensitivities in their bodies. Starting your child on solid food too soon can also create allergies later on in their life. The introduction of solids should be done slowly starting with fruit and vegetable puree's and only add in one new food every few days. You should try not to mix fruit and vegetables in the same meal as they use different enzymes to digest. If you find that your child is having a recurring sensitivity and you're not sure what is causing the inflammation you can have a saliva test done to see exactly what could be causing this. As your child gets older you can introduce grains and proteins to create a balanced diet.

These are just a few of the natural ways to help your child be healthy and heal. There are many other illnesses that natural remedies can help heal without relying on drug medication. If your child is getting ill a lot then you need to visit a trained natural practitioner. Never self-diagnose yourself or your child or Google symptoms. It will stress you out for the wrong reasons. It takes years of experience to get to the bottom of an underlying issue that may be causing recurring illnesses and only a trained professional knows how to do this.
