    Re: Home Remedies.

    My Nana suffered from diabetes and she used to swear by this ...

    She cut the spikey leaves off the Aloe plant and let the really really sticky "juice" run out into a glass. Then she'd mix it with warm water and drink it.

    She never ever went to a doctor and lived into her eighties.

    Are your teeth yellow, well Fresh Strawberry Juice is said to whiten teeth over time. Paint the teeth with the juice and leave it there for 5 minutes. Rinse with warm water that has a pinch of baking soda added to it.

    Dentist can whiten teeth with a cost from 600 to 1200 dollars.

    Ever get that Itchy skin?

    Try a cider and Barley bath; 1 cup of apple cider vinegar and 1 cup of barley flour in your bath tub.

    Try a cold shower.

    Take a dip in the Ocean, sea water can kill fungi.

    If you have the patience, try to make some Chickweed Salve; chop cleaned Chickweed leaves and place them in a glass jar, add enough olive oil to cover the leaves completely; break open a capsule of vitamin E and add the liquid to the jar. Cap the jar and let it sit in a sunny window for 1 week;turning the jar end to end several times once a day. Strain and pour the oil into a clean bottle, store in the frigerator and apply to itchy areas as needed.

    You can even try rubbing baking soda on the itch.

    Rubbing Corn starch on it may help.

    Believe it or not, eating more Fish and Nuts may naturally help. ( Salmon, Mackerel, and Sardines; Almonds and Walnuts.)

    You got high blood pressure, eat more bananas, Potassium prevents thickening of the artery walls.

    Lime blossom tea helps, you can mix that tea with Berry Good Tonic; 3 cups a day will do.

    Passion flower tea helps too.

    Get away from salt!

    Learn to forgive and forget things that irritate you.

    Eat lots of fruit.

    Don't be a couch potatoe.

    Get a pet.

    I had heard this in the past, After googling, it appears to be false. Although pee does contain ammonia and urea that some ant bacterial cream contain it is not concentrated enough to heal AF.

    I guess it's an old wives tale.

    What about that old " Hangover!"

    The mourning after bloody Mary is simply not true; it won't help, but Tomato juice is a good idea, it will help restore the fluids that alcohol has sucked out of you. And although alcohol is a liquid, it will sponge the liquids out of your body and dehydrate you, no matter how much of it you pour into your belly.

    A single drop of peppermint oil on your tongue may help calm nausea.

    Drink lots of fluids; lemon balm tea; load up on carbs; ( Rye bread, ginger snaps, strawberries) and eat some protein, ( Turkey breast, a hard boiled egg, a nice cool glass of milk).

    But the most urgent need is to rehydrate your body! So keep guzzling that H2O!Your brain is mostly water and it gets peeved when you make it thirsty.

    Eat some Cheese.

    And drinking coffee is no myth, it does help, especially if its full of caffeine.

    And listen, don't smoke! You may think it helps, but it does not.

    Have trouble Vomiting? Upset stomach?

    Try Angelica, an herb with a good history. Simmer 1 tablespoon of stems and root for 20 minutes, add 1 teaspoon of aniseeds for taste; strain and take 1 tablespoon every 30 minutes until the stomach settles.

    Sip clear sweetened liquids, such as ginger ale.

    Restore your fluids with gatorade.

    Sit still and stay put for a few hours.

    Don't eat for awhile.
