Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    What do you consider the best medicinee or "home remedy" for the common cold/flu. NON- PRESCRIPTION?
    Over the country medicines. And maybe some of the "home remedies" to help get over a cold/flu. without prescrptions

    • ANSWER:
      ALL the so called cold medications only treat the symptoms and do not shorten your cold duration, in fact, the lengthen the time you have a cold or flu.

      Many of the medications interrupt the body's normal immune functions, like anti-inflammatories. The body's natural immune response to infections is inflammation. This creates a site in the body where more blood flow is created. This brings more nutrients to the site and allows healing to be faster and more effective. The anti-inflammatories, make you feel better, but lengthen the time the body will have the problem and inhibits the healing process.

      If you really want to avoid getting a cold or the flu, you need to do the following at the very first sign of getting sick:

      Purchase Nucleotides from: www.healthline.cc ( not the .com web site with the same name). Take one of the capsules each 1/2 hour the same day you feel the cold coming on. The next day it will be gone.

      Now, you need to change your diet, so you won't be getting sick any more. Avoid ALL FLU SHOTS! They are a joke and only line the drug companies, like Merck with billion dollars per year for each type of vaccine they produce. What a joke on the American public. It's really outrageous. The vaccines only suppress your immune system and give you only temporary immunity from one or a few strains of the virus. Doesn't it make more sense to build your ENTIRE IMMUNE SYSTEM to defend against ALL FLU'S and COLDS!

      There are very well respected professional medical people that are dead set against giving flu vaccines and other vaccines in general because of all the problems and even deaths from these things. There is a HUGE controversy brewing that the general public is not being told.

      A very good book on this subject that explains the controversy in great detail and gives very credible information that is very well documented is called, "The Sanctity of Human Blood" by Timothy O'Shea.

      By the way, don't run out and buy a bunch of ZINC for your cold either. Too much zinc will deplete your body of copper and they you will have some big issues to deal with in regard to your ADRENAL GLANDS!
      good luck to you

  2. QUESTION:
    What home remedies and methods have been useful to you with expediting recovery from a cold or the flu?
    I realize there's a plethora of home remedies posted on the internet, but rather than wade through them all I thought I'd ask my lovely contacts and others on this site about what has been the most effective for them for speeding up recovery from minor illnesses. I'm currently nursing a savage cold and am hoping to rebound fast from it because my college (Stanford) is playing in the Rose Bowl on New Year's Day and it's going to be one of the most epic events of my life thus far. All my friends are going to be here by this time tomorrow, and we're all basically going to be human fireworks of excitement. It would be awesome if I could actually breathe through my nose and have the energy to stand up for more than ten minutes. I've taken it easy almost the entire weekend, and was very mellow today. I've been getting enough sleep and rest, I haven't gone on any runs or exercised rigorously at all, and I'm drinking heaps of liquids, eating vitamin-C rich foods, and being calm and chill. I have a hospital-grade air purifier in my room, so I'm just lounging in here and being tranquil. I have a lackluster immune system due to having Hodgkin's Lymphoma a couple of years ago, and I tend to get sick very easy as a result. Normally I don't care that much about petty colds or the flu and just carry on as much as possible, but this is HISTORY in the making in my life, right now, and I want to enjoy it.

    I'd be grateful for any tips and suggestions anyone might have!!!!

    HAPPY NEW YEAR! : ) : ) : )
    I try to avoid NyQuil and similar decongestants because they make me wired, like uncontrollable bursts of energy. If you read the warning labels they state that they might cause excitability, especially in children. Haha, my body apparently still operates like a kid.

    I've been a vegetarian since I was ten, and have limited dairy and egg consumption since the age of 15 (though I'm not a vegan.) I am having chicken noodle soup without the chicken or chicken broth.

    Thanks for the tips thus far.

    • ANSWER:
      I hope you're feeling better [it's 22 hours since you posted this Q & almost time for the match!] .... hope you are having a fun time, too :-)

      For future, though, do steam inhalations at least 3 times a day [upto 10 mins, or less]. You can buy the steamer [like the ones they have in salons for facial steams, etc., except that you use only the spray for nasal inhalation]
      I have a simple one like this [remove the bowl & screw on the lid that is shown beside it] http://www.pepperfry.com/srm-steam-inhaler-and-facial-sauna-134305.html & it keeps me fit & fresh - I use it as a 'preventer' as well - whenever temperatures drop, I do a few minutes of steam inhalation even if there are no cold symptoms.

      As for other remedies, you could try nebulization - very effective too, but you will need medication - usually steroidal - for it.

      I'll add many more ... but try this before you go.
      Also, instead of drinking normal water, try a little luke warm water. This also prevents & soothes at the same time. Cold/ambient water, in winters, can actually cause More congestion.

      Keep yourself warm & well-wrapped at the games.

      Add : Try these home remedies whenever you can : http://www.onegoodthingbyjillee.com/2012/12/simple-all-natural-cold-and-flu-soothers.html

      My own prevention elixir is this herbal tea :
      Few fresh leaves of holy Basil [Ram Tulsi],
      thinly sliced fresh Ginger [or crushed],
      2 Cloves,
      4 whole Black Peppercorns;
      add to a cup of water & allow to boil & simmer for some time.
      I usually do it in the oven, but you need to take care that the water does not spill over.
      Sweeten with Honey - very soothing, an antiseptic, decongestant.
      You can make & store this water/tea & use later by reheating.
      You can add a tea bag to the boiling water if you like.
      You can make it completely herbal tea by adding a bunch of fresh mint leaves while brewing.
      This brew/tea can be taken at any time, as often as you wish. If you start taking it as the temperatures transition towards cold, you can actually prevent colds & flus for the most part. In fact, I've prevented flus/cold/cough at the slightest hint of an ache in the throat by drinking this.

      The ingredients [obviously in larger quantities] can also be ground into a paste, cooked a bit, cooled & stored in a little container that you can carry around & lick on ever so often.

      Also, do keep your neck warm At All Times - that is where the bugs get you !

      Wishing you a very Happy, Healthy, Peaceful New Year too :-))

  3. QUESTION:
    What are some good at-home remedies for sinus congestion?
    It's cold and flu season, and I was wondering if anyone knew any simple at home remedies for sinus congestion. Please help me get rid of this headache! Lol.

    • ANSWER:
      Nasal or sinus congestion occurs when the nasal passage gets stuffed and blocked due to a swelling of the mucous membranes that line the nose. Some of the sinus congestion causes are inflamed blood vessels and other factors like cold, flu, allergies, overuse of nasal sprays, and so on. Sinus congestion home remedies include mixing a few drops of oil of oregano with some juice and drinking this liquid on a daily basis.
      Oil of oregano has been used to relieve sinus congestion or even lung congestion for ages as it also aids in strengthening the immune system of the body. Similarly, sinus congestion relief could also be achieved by using tea tree oil which is commonly used as a natural curing agent for various types of infectious organisms such as bacteria, fungus, virus and the like. Herbal remedies for sinus congestion includes the use of the Echinacea herb.
      This herb tends to stimulate the production of white blood cells and also accelerate their maturation within the lymphatic tissue. Besides this it also helps in speeding up their movement to the area of infection where these white blood cells can then fight the external invaders in the body. One of the most effective sinus congestion home remedies is steam inhalation which helps provide relief from painful sinus congestion and pressure by thinning the mucus so that it can be easily expelled.
      Hence those suffering from nasal or sinus congestion should chew on a few pieces of freshly chopped ginger or a clove of garlic to get relief from sinus congestion. Temporary relief from the symptoms of sinus congestion may be gained by applying a hot compress or a warm towel to one’s face, over the cheekbones and eyes. Consumption of pungent or spicy food also helps relieve the symptoms of sinus congestion as they tend to open up the nasal passages. Some home remedies for sinus congestion include the physical manipulation of the nasal area to achieve relief. In some cases, it is believed that by pressing the tongue against the roof of one’s mouth and then alternately gently pressing on a particular point between the eyes tends to allow better drainage of the mucus. This would thereby provide proper relief from sinus congestion. Additionally, one of the most popular and effective remedies for sinus congestion is a saline spray which requires a few drops of saline to be directly dropped into the nasal passages.

    Please list products you use or methods you take to cure your cold/flu. I caught a VERY nasty flu and have tried many over the counter products. I am taking Airborne...now what?

    • ANSWER:
      At the first sign of a cold I put perioxide in my ears and leave it there for about 5 minutes in each air. I read on an alternative medicine website that it helps to kill any germs that are in your ears. I do this 2-3 times for the first day or two of a cold. It's also good for getting rid of ear wax.

      I currently have a virus and using a hot air humidifier has helped. I also am taking lots of vitamin C & zinc and drinking lots of water to thin out the nasal secretions.

    • ANSWER:
      I am a mixed race(multi-racial) female, from Britain, now living in Canada.

      A) When I am ill, I try my best to take care of it myself, before going to the doctor, because I do not trust doctors and have been and seen people in my family have bad experiences. Unfortunately, doctors/nurses categorize mixed people with whatever non-white background they have and that is what they end up calling us. Which is not fair. If mixed people are to be assessed accurately, then we should be looked at as a whole person, and screened or assessed based on our actual racial makeup, not what they WANT to referr to us as. Thats why I don't bother going to doctors, they are not diagnosing us properly, therefore we are not getting the proper treatment.

      B) Depending on what is wrong with me, Sore throat, I use warm salt water to rinse my throat. Also, warm lemon drink, you can buy them in the store. Taking vitamin C tablets, Advil and rest.
      Other than that, I would only use the health care system if it was an emergency or I know I would die.

In a standard coffee mug filled halfway with tap water heat in a microwave and adjust temperature with cold water till it is hot but not scalding. Add 1/2 teaspoon of table salt and stir to dissolve. Cup your palm and pour some of the salt solution into your hand. While bending over snort some of the solution into one nostril while plugging the other with a finger.

    • ANSWER:
      HOME REMEDIES FOR COMMON COLD
      * Vitamins are most helpful in fighting against the cold as well as other diseases. Vitamin C, also known as Ascorbic Acid, is helpful in preventing the colds and it can be found in many foods such as citrus fruits, some vegetables.
      * Zinc is also helpful for cold that can cut colds short. When you first feel that you may be getting a cold, start taking zinc
      * Garlic, as well as onion, is sometimes taken for the relief of congestion and minor infections.
      * Horseradish is another herb that has an excellent property to treat sore throat and upper respiratory tract infections, reduces fever, and expels concentrations of mucus.
      * Another effective remedy for sore throat is to gargle with a strong solution of table salt and warm water. Gargle several times a day.
      * Echinacea is an herb that acts as nature's antibiotic. It helps to increase the body's immunity and thus helps in fighting against the infection and illness.
      * Goldenseal is another herb that acts as a natural antibiotic, and can be taken to help fight against the cold.
      * Add 1/4 teaspoon of table salt to about 5 ml lukewarm water. Use this solution as a nasal drop. Use 1 to 2 drops in each nostril about 3 to 4 times daily.
      * A ginger tea can be prepared by boiling ginger in normal tea. It gives relief to congested nose.
      * Drink a teaspoonful of ginger juice mixed with equal quantity of honey.
      * Take hot water in a bowl and put some Thyme leaves. Inhale vapors by covering head with a towel.
      * Add 1 tablespoon of honey, 1 shot of lemon juice, 1 shot of whiskey to a coffee cup. Fill the remainder of the coffee cup with steaming hot water, stir, and sip until cold is relieved.
      * Make hot chicken soup with lots of garlic. Have when hot. It will help unclog nasal passage.

  14. QUESTION:
    What are some home remedies for the flu?
    Ive been feeling really sick and i want to know some home remedies for the flu.
    I hate taking medicine so i really want to know
    Please help me! :S

    • ANSWER:
      Hello. Mega dosis of Vitamin C will wipe out the flu if you take it in large enough quantities. I havent been sick with even a cold or anything in 4 years and I think Vitamin C deserves much of the credit. There is a branch of alternative medicine called Orthomolecular, which was coined by Dr. Linus Pauling and has become popular through the work of Dr. Andrew Saul. I would recommend 3,000-4,000mg of Vitamin C every hour until you reach bowel tolerance (feeling of gas, bloating). This is when you know you are saturated with the Vitamin C. You can reach upwards of 30,000+mg per day without any problems. Best of all, there are no side effects. Your body uses Vitamin C in over 300 metabolic functions so it is super good for you.

  15. QUESTION:
    How can I get rid of a cough and sore throat quickly?
    I have tried nearly everything. I have spent hours online trying to find solutions.

    Things I have tried and if they worked of not:

    Hot honey and lemon drink: Hasn't worked
    Gargling warm salt water: Hasn't worked
    Breathing in steam from hot water, either in a bathroom or over the sink: Hasn't worked, It just made me cough more.
    Lemsip Max cold and flu tablets: Hasn't worked
    Losengers: Haven't worked, I threw it up and that was the only time I puked.
    Cough Syrup: It used to work for me but for some reason it hasn't done anything
    Vicks Vaporub: It actually worked for about 5 minutes. It eased my cough and then 5 - 6 minutes later, I was coughing and spluttering worse than before.
    Drinking lots of water: I do that normally, because I have uti.

    I have also been coughing up sh*t loads of phlegm, and there was one blob of blood, should I be worried? My mum said it was just a burst blood vessel in my throat from coughing so much.

    My cough is usually dry and painful on my chest and throat, but it varies, it can be wet and phlegmy but still hurts.

    I really need help. I have an interview tomorrow, and having a cough throughout the interview will take me off track. Also I can't just reschedule it.

    If anyone else has any other remedies that worked for you and that I haven't tried yet, please say because I am desparate.

    I can't drive to the pharmacy to buy anymore medicines because I am only 16. So it'll be better if you tell me about home remedies. Also I have no ginger (read about ginger helping sore throats somewhere).

    I am taking antibiotics to help get rid of my uti, do you think the antibiotics are limiting the reactions of the methods I have used or should the antibiotics be helping my cough and sore throat?

    I need help and fast!!

    • ANSWER:
      Dude it sounds like a throat infection.. Go see a doctor and he'll put u on antibiotics.. Only that would fix it. For immediate relief have some tea. Boil 1/2 cup milk and 1/2 cup water, add 1 teaspoon of tea powder and 2 teaspoons of sugar and add coin sized ginger crushed well. Boil for 5 minutes and have it, it should help. But see a doctor.

  18. QUESTION:
    Any home remedies to cure a cold?
    I'm not wanting to take any drugs really. I just want home remedies to help my cold. Anything from what to eat and what not to eat, and anything that can help my runny nose which is making my throat feel funny.

    • ANSWER:
      There are several things you can do:
      Herbs-

      1. Elderberry extract is derived from the sambucus tree or shrub. The extract is used to treat flu like symptoms at first sight. Elderberry extract can be used in a juice or syrup to shorten the duration of cold and flu like symptoms. Elderberries contain potassium, vitamin C and anthocyanins, a powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory. Although there has been nothing proven on why it reduces the cold and flu the main theory is that elderberry has very high oxygen radical absorption capacity, reducing free radicals in the body.

      Take 1 teaspoon of elderberry extract four to five times daily after the first sign of a cold or flu. Take it until symptoms subside, then 1 teaspoon daily for general health.

      2. Boneset is another herb from genus Eupatorium of the flowering plants, which helps to lessen the symptoms of the flu as well. Normally it is ingested as a tea because of the toxic affects the plant can have if ingested whole. Boneset is known to reduce fever from viral or bacterial infections through the act of sweating. Additionally boneset promotes the removal of phlegm through coughing.
      Homeopathic-

      3. Oscillococcinum is a homeopathic medicine, which relieves symptoms of the flu. Originally manufactured in France and has been in used in over 50 countries for the past 65 years. Easily accessible in local vitamin stores, natural food stores, organic grocery stores and online through Boiron.

      Natural-

      4. Gargle with warm salt water to reduce a sore throat. Salt is used as an antiseptic and disinfects the throat of germs. It is natural and inexpensive and can be used as often as needed.
      5. Rest is the most important part of recovering from the flu. The body is usually weak and drained from fighting off the flu virus that it is fatigued. Rest allows the body to recuperate after fighting against the flu.
      6. Drink fluids. Water is the most important thing to drink, but other fluids include hot teas, Gatorades to replace electrolytes, or pedialyte. Avoid caffeinated drinks that will act as a diuretic. When your body is fighting an infection, it is easier to become dehydrated and with all the symptoms that you are experiencing from the flu you don’t want to add symptoms from dehydration. Fluids also flush out toxins or reminisce of infection.
      7. Health juices such as mangosteen, noni, goji, aloe vera and acai berry are good replenishing drinks as well. In addition to keeping the body hydrated they have added vitamins, minerals and antioxidants to boost the bodies immune system.
      8. Clean out your ears with hydrogen peroxide. Hydrogen peroxide disinfects and kills germs. By putting a couple of drops in each ear you can kill cold and flu germs that can build up in the ear and cause infection. Use a cotton ball or Q-tip and allow the hydrogen peroxide to fizz and bubble. Drain from the ear with a tissue, then reapply until it no longer bubbles.
      9. Garlic is one of food sources that has high anti-bacterial properties. It can be used to help fight infection within the body. Additionally it has the ability to boost the immune system.
      10. Vitamin C is a natural cold reliever. It can be consumed through foods or supplement form. Vitamin C is prevalent in fresh fruits and vegetables. By consuming large quantities of vitamin C you can help the body fight infection and relieve symptoms of the flu.

    • ANSWER:
      This is unrelated, but I remember the question about you being called ugly by boys.(it was deleted for some reason) Judging by the picture you gave, you are pretty pretty. Don't let their mean comments get to you. You shouldn't let your self esteem be worsened by people who think poorly of you and can't keep their mouths shut about it. You should instead, think poorly of them. Think thoughts like "Why don't these losers have anything better to do?" or "They're uglier than me, anyway."

    Best meds or home remedies for a Cold?
    I have a severe cold right now that i developed yesterday. Im sneezing twice every 3-5 minutes, nose running like someone broke the handle from the water faucet, mild achy headache and a sore throat that is killing me from frequent sneezing.

    I am currently taking Vicks Dayquil, which to me is not effective. Or atleast to my body. Any suggestions on meds or home remedies?

    Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      You might think that i'm daft but a sure fire way to nip a cough or a cold in the bud ........ is to slice a lime or lemon into quarters, squeeze the juice into a cup of warm water and add organic honey to taste (honey has antiobiotic properties) and sip on that................. then, suck on another 1/4 of a lime or lemon rinsing your mouth out thoroughly afterwards to protect your teeth from the acid ♥

      The vitamin C content of limes and lemons is so potent that it does a fine job of eliminating a cough and cold symptoms by bolstering your immune system♥

      Just gotta be brave matel and suk on those limes.

      Eat more foods rich in vitamin C ~ in particular, limes and lemons, also oranges, strawberries, blueberries, tomatoes, leafy and green vegies, red and green peppers♥

      vitamin C will bolster your immunity, aid in relieving allergy symptoms and help to torch those nasty cold and flu germs♥

      Loads of freshly squeezed juices are good too♥

      Pump up your fresh filtered water intake as the happiest and healthiest body will always be the most hydrated one♥

      Avoid sugar as bacteria will only multiply and feed on sugar. Also avoid B complex thieves such as caffeine, tea, sodas and soft drinks, alcohol .............. all these things will also do a great job of dehydrating you♥

      Paradoxically otc cold and flu meds and aspirin will also do a fine job of robbing you of your B complex of vitamins as well as your precious supplies of Vitamin C.

      Take a B complex supplement as the B complex of vitamins are essential for healthy neural digestive and immune system functioning and will assist your body in dealing with stress of being ill ................ take one even after you recover ♥

      Ensure you are drinking or eating something with Beta - carotene in it daily to heal quicker and in future to prevent further colds, as Vitamin A will aid in the proper function of the immune system, shorten the duration of illnesses and generally bolster the health of the mucosal lining of your ear nose and throat ie: carrott juice, pumpkin soups, eggs.

      Eucalyptus oil has long been respected for its ability to lower temperatures and help the respiratory tract by loosening and removing mucus during attacks of bronchitis, coughs, flu, sinusitis and throat infections. Its antiviral and antibacterial action will deter further growth of the bacteria or virus♥

      Put a capfull of eucalyptus oil into a hot bath and soak in that for 15 - 20 minutes luxuriously inhaling the steamy wonderfull vapours.......... this will help enormously in loosening congestion and mucus from your chest and respiratory tract.

      Put a few drops of eucalyptus oil also onto a hanky and lie it next to your pillow at night to help ease breathing.

      Fill a salad bowl with hot water and put 1/2 a capfull of eucalyptus oil into it ~ make a tent with a towel over your head and lean over the bowl and inhale the steamy eucalypt vapours ........... being carefull not to get so close that you burn your face♥

      Caution ~ Do not use eucalyptus oil if you suffer from epilepsy or high blood pressure ....... if either is the case simply substitute with tea tree oil which is also a brilliant antiviral and antibacterial♥ Also do not use eucalyptus oil on infants or young children under 5 years of age or for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding ♥ Under no circumstances should you ever ingest eucalyptus oil ♥

      Good health to you♥

      be brave and eat the limes mate ~ amazing stuff♥

  26. QUESTION:
    Strep throat home remedies for a person with cirrhosis of the liver?
    My bro has no insurance so he can't go to doctor. He has strep troath and needs some home remedies that won't hurt his cirrhosis of the liver?

    • ANSWER:
      Hi Sol

      I have healing remedies for both mentioned.

      Cause
      Sore throats are usually caused by viral infections, but can also be due to bacterial infections, tonsillitis, overuse of the voice, exposure to irritating substances such as cigarette smoke, allergic reactions, infections of the mouth, and/or colds and flu.

      Caution: Sore throats are rarely serious. However, if your sore throat does not heal within two weeks, and/or occurs with a rash, seek immediate medical attention. If any sore throat occurs with a rash, see a doctor. A sore throat caused by a Streptococcal infection (strep throat) must be identified and treated, or else it could create rheumatic fever or acute glomerulonephritis (disease of the glomerulus, a network of blood capillaries of the kidney).

      --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

      Natural Cures

      Aromatherapy: Inhalations with benzoin, lavender, thyme, eucalyptus, geranium, lavender, clary sage, or sandalwood can help relieve symptoms.

      Diet: Increase your intake pure filtered water, hot herbal teas, diluted fruit juices, and broths. Eat an organic whole foods diet that emphasizes fresh vegetables and vegetable soups. Avoid all sugars, alcohol, milk and dairy products and any and all foods to which you are allergic or sensitive. Raw organic honey placed at the back of the throat can also help soothe symptoms and speed healing.

      Flower Essences: Crab Apple.

      Herbs: If your sore throat is due to an infection, chew a small piece of osha root (Ligusticum porteri) and/or gargle with an infusion of sage or licorice. For a sore throat due to smoke or pollution irritation, gargle with an infusion of lavender or hyssop. Other useful herbs include echinacea, garlic, ginger, goldenseal, and slippery elm.

      Juice Therapy: Drinking the juice of one or two red potatoes can soothe symptoms.

      Nutritional Supplementation: The following nutrients can be helpful: vitamin A, beta carotene, vitamin C with bioflavonoids, and zinc (in the form of lozenges taken every 1-2 hours unless nausea occurs, in which case decrease dosage).

      Cause
      Liver function can be impaired by a toxic bowel. Most pharmaceutical drugs, if taken on a consistent basis, can also cause liver disease. If you are on such medications, be sure to have your liver function monitored regularly (every 3-6 months) by your physician, and consider other healing alternatives that might reduce or eliminate your need for medications.

      Caution: Serious cases of cirrhosis require immediate medical attention.

      --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

      Natural Cures

      Aromatherapy: Juniper, rosemary, and rose essential oils can all help stimulate liver function.

      Detoxification: Liver function can also be impaired by a toxic bowel. For this reason, bowel cleansing and rejuvenation techniques may be very important. In severe cases, repeat the bowel cleanse once a month, or as needed, and stay on bowel nutrients for up to one year depending on the severity of your condition and your response to treatment.

      Diet: Diet is extremely important in preventing and reversing all forms of liver disease, including cirrhosis. Eat a low-protein, whole foods diet of organic foods, including seeds, nuts, whole grains, beans, nuts, and goat or rice milk, and also eat plenty of leafy green vegetables. Avoid all alcohol and processed fats such as margarine, hydrogenated oils, and foods with these oils added, rancid oils, and hardened vegetable fats. Instead, use cold-processed oils such as olive. Also increase your consumption of foods high in amino acids and potassium, such as nuts, seeds, bananas, raisins, rice, wheat bran, kelp, dulse, brewer`s yeast, and molasses, and drink plenty of pure, filtered water. Avoid animal protein as well as raw or undercooked fish, and limit your overall intake of fish.

      Also avoid all stressors on the liver, such as overeating, drugs of any kind, a highly processed diet (especially one high in processed fats, additives and preservatives), and foods high in animal protein, and accumulation of toxins from chemicals that have to be processed by the liver such as alcohol, drugs, acetaminophen, insecticides, and chemicals from rancid and processed oils. Toxins from Candida yeast organisms within the body can also contribute to liver stress, as can the use of contraceptives.

      Herbs: Milk thistle is an excellent herb to help in the treatment of cirrhosis because it helps liver cells regenerate. It may be taken in the form of tablets or the non-alcohol extract called a glycerate. The dose is based upon the content of silymarin (the active ingredient of milk thistle) and so standardized extracts are preferable. The typical dosage range is 70-200 mg of silymarin daily. The herb Picrorhiza kurroa is not as well-known as milk thistle, but may have similar effects. Licorice can also be helpful. The Chinese herb bupleurum (chai-hu) may also be helpful, as can the herbal mixture of kutki (200 mg), shanka pushpi (500 mg), and guduchi (300 mg), with is used by practitioners of Ayurvedic medicine to boost liver function. Take 1/4 teaspoon of this mixture taken twice a day, after lunch and dinner, with aloe vera juice.

      Hydrotherapy: Hydrotherapy is the application of water, ice, steam and hot and cold temperatures to maintain and restore health. Treatments include full body immersion, steam baths, saunas, sitz baths, colonic irrigation and the application of hot and/or cold compresses. Hydrotherapy is effective for treating a wide range of conditions and can easily be used in the home as part of a self-care program. Many Naturopathic Physicians, Physical Therapists and Day Spas use Hydrotherapy as part of treatment.
      *Purified water is essential for any hydrotherapy treatment. The section Remedies for Treating Chlorinated Bath Water offers clear instructions and recommendations.

      Juice Therapy: The following juices can help the liver eliminate toxins that cause stress on it: beet and carrot juice and wheat grass juice. To either juice, you can add raw flaxseed oil and garlic as tolerated.

      Nutritional Supplementation: Lipotrophic factor nutrients are essential for aiding liver function. These include vitamin C, vitamin E, silymarin, lipoic acid, and raw liver tablets. Other useful nutrients in this regard include vitamin B complex, vitamin B12, folic acid, niacin (in small doses such as 10-30 mg. three times), liver glandulars, digestive enzymes with hydrochloric acid (HCL) and ox bile extract, and the amino acids L-methionine, L-carnitine, L-cysteine, L-glutathione, and L-arginine.

      Caution: For all cases of liver disease, do not use more than 10,000 IU of vitamin A daily and avoid cod liver oil entirely.

      Alternative Professional Care
      If your symptoms persist despite the above measures, seek the help of a qualified health professional. The following professional care therapies have all been shown to be useful for treating and relieving the symptoms of cirrhosis: Acupuncture, Cell Therapy, Detoxification Therapy, Magnetic Field Therapy, Natural Hormone Replacement Therapy, Naturopathic Medicine, Reflexology, Qigong, and Traditional Chinese Medicine.

      Best of health to both of you

  27. QUESTION:
    I have a cold sore and i want to know how to get rid of it with at home remedies?
    It has gotten to its scab stage and it in the corner of my mouth so it is always cracking and it won't dry, I need at home remedies to get rid of it please?

    • ANSWER:
      Cold sores generally clear up without treatment within about two weeks. One of the most important things you can do is to keep your hands away from it. Don't pick at it. Picking at it can add a bacterial infection to the viral infection, and it will take longer to heal. Wash your hands immediately after touching the cold sore and avoid touching your eyes or your genitals after touching the cold sore. Keep hand sanitizer handy for those times when you can't wash your hands.

      There are a few things you can do to help the cold sore heal and to also treat the symptoms. Try covering it with a little vaseline which will help keep it moisturized and so less cracking and less pain. Don't try to cover it up with make up. That could aggravate it. Avoid getting your lips sunburned. Apply sunscreen to your lips before going outside.

      Avoid foods that might irritate it as it is healing - citrus fruit and juices, salty foods such as potato chips.

      Try chewing real licorice. There is evidence that an ingredient in licorice, glycyrrhizic acid, actually stops the cold sore virus. You do have to make sure it is real licorice, and not an imitation. The list of ingredients should say "licorice mass".

      Ice packs will help reduce the swelling and also help reduce the pain. Use an ice pack for about 15 minutes several times a day. Generally this treatment works best if you do it as soon as you feel the cold sore coming on.

      Soak a cotton ball in milk and apply it to the cold sore. Whole milk is best, not skim. It will help with both the pain and the inflammation, and if you do it as soon as you feel the cold sore coming on it can help reduce the duration of the attack.

      To prevent reinfecting yourself, you should get a new toothbrush when the cold sore has healed. A toothbrush can harbor the virus. This can prevent a recurrence.

      If you get cold sores regularly you probably know about the drug store options for treatment. Lysine has proven very effective in treating cold sores. Abreva treats the symptoms well and has been shown to lessen the duration of an attack. In my opinion the absolute best method to address cold sores is an oral anti-viral medication, Valtrex. Since I started using it (only when I feel a cold sore coming on) my attacks have lessened greatly, when I do have one it lasts only a day or two, and I have not had a bad cold sore in about 5 years.

      If you get cold sores you probably also know what your triggers are. Be aware that there are situations that bring on cold sores that you can avoid:

      dehydration
      too much sun, especially sunburn
      stress
      letting yourself get over tired
      fevers, colds and the flu - anything that compromises your immune system
      dental work

  28. QUESTION:
    What are some good home remedies to stop coughing?
    These past two weeks I was sick with this mixture of a head cold, the flu, and some bronchitis thing, not my best week! So now I'm much better, but all I have now is this dry cough. I won't stop coughing. It's the worst at night and it's just a nuisance, I am getting a major ab workout on the upside though. Does anyone have any good remedies to just make me stop coughing? Much appreciated! Thanks everyone!

    • ANSWER:
      Though we have no cure for the common cold and flu, we do have natural options in the alleviation of the nagging symptoms that accompany such ailments. Stuffy, congested nasal cavities, itchy, watery eyes and scratchy throat with a cough are a few of the most common of these symptoms. We can easily and safely diminish such irritations with the use of natural herbal home remedies and a vaporizer.

      One popular and very effective herbal remedy combines the use of the essentials oils of the eucalyptus plant and the peppermint plant. The natural characteristics of eucalyptus and peppermint plants provide soothing properties to the respiratory system. When these plants are vaporized, the soothing natural active ingredients are released into the vapor. The vapor takes on a form that can be easily absorbed by the body through the bronchial tubes and nasal passages. The process is simple and effective.

      Begin by placing your herbal material in the appropriate filling chamber of the vaporizer. Careful to not overfill, place just enough material in the vaporizer for a single use as any excess materials should be discarded upon the completion of vaporization. Depending on the type of vaporizer used, you may need to attach the vapor capture device to the machine. Otherwise, if the device is designed to be a room vaporizer, no attachment is necessary.

      Next, turn on the heating element of the vaporizer. Eucalyptus and peppermint vaporize to maximum potency at 254 degrees Fahrenheit. Be sure to heat the herbs to this temperature to achieve the greatest benefit and the best soothing relief of symptoms. By properly heating the herbal substance, a good concentration of vapor is achieved. The vapor is denser with active ingredients and contains less air. Once the solution is heated, the vapor is created and fills the air or capture device.

      For optimum relief of cold and flu symptoms, a slow and steady inhalation of vapors is recommended. Allow the vapor to fill the sinus passages as the eucalyptus and peppermint open the nasal cavities and calm irritated passageways. Inhale the vapor into the lungs to calm the bronchial tubes and soothe the inflamed airways. This will alleviate coughing due to irritation and congestion and also relieves a scratchy throat.

      Natural herbal medicine is practiced by cultures around the globe and has been for centuries. Cold and flu are very common illnesses that can drastically affect our daily activities. Combining the natural home remedy of eucalyptus and peppermint with the technology of a vaporizer can provide great relief from symptoms of these ailments and allow you to get back to normal activities with a safe and effective process

  29. QUESTION:
    Will standard over-the-counter meds that are used to treat Flu symptoms help the symptoms of the Swine Flu?
    Don't worry, I don't have the Swine Flu. But I do have a bih medicine cabinet full of basic Flu remedies that you can buy at the drug store, like Tylenol Cold & Flu, Benelyn All-in-one, and stuff like that.

    If I or someone in my home gets the Swine Flu, will these things help at all? Would they at least help with symptom relief?

    • ANSWER:
      Tamiflu (oseltamivir) and amantidine and rimantidine should decrease the severity and complications associated with influenza A (and hopefully this version of swine flu). These medications must be used very early in the infection (within 24-48 hours of infection). They prevent entry of the influenza virus into cells and are antiviral agents. Oseltamivir (Tamiflu) is a neuraminidase inhibitor and works by preventing new viruses from budding from infected human cells. So there won't be spreading of the infection within the body. I'm not sure if Tamiflu is available OTC, but I believe Amantidine and Rimantidine are available OTC. In asian countries, influenza viruses are resistant to the effects of amantidine and it is unclear whether this strain of swine flu is sensitive to amantidine. In asia, amantidine was used on the poultry population do decrease the infection rate of chickens, and this overuse has caused a resistance to amantidine to develop in the avian influenza viruses. Medications like Tylenol Cold & Flu are for symptomatic relief and do not prevent the spread or infection rate of the influenza virus. These medications contain antipyretic, analgesics, antihistamines and decongestants.

  30. QUESTION:
    I have a sinus infection and it is making my ears hurt. ?
    I have a sinus infection and everytime I blow my nose I get excruciating pain in my inner ear. That leads me to believe that I am forcing mucus into my ears when I blow my nose. My local family physcians are closed today and I cant afford to pay a huge hospital bill just for a cold or flu. Does anybody know some good home remedies for relieving this pain in my ears?

    • ANSWER:
      My husband uses this to keep from getting bronchitis, and I use to to cure sinus infections. THere are many kinds of bacteria that live in the sinuses, and this gets rid of all the bad ones!.This is the only thing that really helped me --- my Dr. told me about a sinus wash that will kill bacteria.
      you need

      distilled water
      sea salt
      liquid chlorophyll and colloidal silver from the health food store.
      in a glass mix 1/4 cup water with a pinch of salt and heat to body temperature.
      add 5 drops each silver and chlorophyll and mix.
      using a large dropper (like one used for infant medication) drop 2 full droppersfull into one side of the nose while laying down.
      Turn the head and let it drain out the other nostril. Be sure to have paper towels handy.
      The silver kills the bacteria and there are several hundred kind that can live in the sinus cavities and anti biotics don't get rid of them all.
      Do this twice a day for a week, mixing up the mixture fresh each time.
      Then do it once a week for maintenance.
      There is nothing in this that will hurt you, and it cured me.
      I do not have to take claritin, or antibiotics anymore.
      best wishes

  31. QUESTION:
    What are some of the best home remedies for sinus issues during the fall season?
    This is for my friend, who is suffering from severe nasal congestion and sinus pressure. He has tried the Nettie Pot with salt water but it isn't working, and he wants to stay away from OTC medication - and he's tried most anyway, but they still have not worked. The doctor has said he'll need surgery which will include breaking the bridge of his nose and he's not ready to do that. Any home remedies that you know of would be greatly appreciated!

    • ANSWER:
      Natural and holistic treatments have also been used for centuries to reduce the symptoms of sinusitis. Very often, conventional medications have harsh side effects and using more natural alternatives like herbal and homeopathic remedies are much safer and gentler for the body.

      Herbal remedies are there to alleviate the symptoms by reducing inflammation and, if you still take prescription medications, also help them in curing the infection. Of course, some of them like Echinacea, help tremendously in not only giving a fillip to your immune system but also help prevent colds and shorten the duration of your cold or flu.

      A highly effective herb is Quercitin which contains anti-oxidants and helps to promote healthy circulation and boosts immunity. Another carefully selected herb is Euphrasia officinalis (Eyebright) which is beneficial for good eye health. In addition, homeopathic ingredients such as Arsen alb, Nat. mur. and Kali mur. help to maintain the skin and nervous system as well as liver health.

  32. QUESTION:
    What are some some home remedies for post nasal drip?
    The drip is not chronic but has been persistent over the last 2 or 3 days and has quite possibly caused a throat infection (there is pain there). I do not want to go to a physician. What are some home remedies to stop the drip?

    • ANSWER:
      Avoid spicy food and dairy/milk products, turn on your humidifier, drink lots of fluids, especially herbal teas, like chamomile tea or green tea with honey. If you have a sore throat you can try gargling salt water. You may have a cold, but I don't think post nasal drip or a sore throat is a symptom of the flu. I get symptoms like that when I have the cold, or less frequently, when I have a throat or sinus infection. Hopefully it's not a throat or sinus infection because if it is, you probably will have to go to the doctor and get antibiotics. I used to get a runny nose and a dry/scratchy/sore throat when I used humidifiers less frequently. Now I use them all the time and the cold dry air doesn't bother my nose/throat as much.

  33. QUESTION:
    What can you do to strengthen your immune system?
    We are all being plagued by constant threats to our health with the change in weather, pollution, and our lifestyles. Especially in the time of the swine-flu, common cold and other ailments, how can we strengthen our immune system so we have a stronger chance of fighting infections? Do you know of any home remedies or best practices?

    • ANSWER:
      Oh! All we have to do is to strictly adhere to the food that our body is designed for!
      All animals and living creatures in free state do the same thing, and their immunity levels are ever at its peak!
      And when our health is taken care of, we have much higher responsibilities, as 'humans'! Right now, we are at a great struggle to manage our food even! See, we are the only living creatures that have to "earn" our food, work for it! Food happens for 'free', even now, for all other living beings (not in captivity, of course)!

  40. QUESTION:
    Fastest and most effective way to get rid of a cold sore?
    I just got a nasty cold sore on my lip (YUCK!) I have tried abreva, which kinda sucks. I just bought lysine and I dont know what to think about it. Are there any home remedies that work better than the OTC stuff? Also, is it better to dry it out or to keep it moisterized? Can I wear makeup over it?

    • ANSWER:
      A cold sore is a version of the herpes virus. It is different from the genital herpes virus but can be transmitted to the genitals if the facial herpes comes in contact with the genitals. It is important to be careful during a cold sore outbreak. Don't touch your lips and then touch your eyes or nose or genitals. These areas are the most prone to contracting herpes. You can also pass this virus to another person by touching the other person with the infected area.

      Cold sores are very resilient. The herpes virus connects to your nerve system and attacks the infected area. The virus then goes into a state of hibernation before your immune system can attack it. This enables it to go undetected by your body and remain with you for your entire lifetime. Chicken pox is another form of herpes which remains in your body and can later resurrect as shingles when you are older.

      Don't let this information frighten you. This is only a precaution so that you don't encounter anymore awkward situations in your life. Cold sores on your lips are embarrassing enough. With proper handling during an outbreak, you can limit your cold sores to only attacking your lips. You may be able to even prevent further outbreaks.

      There are several treatments for cold sores. Here are the most effective remedies.

      1. Abreva. This is an over-the-counter cream that attacks the herpes virus and shortens the time of an outbreak. It is best to apply Abreva at the initial tingling sensation of a cold sore, before it appears on your lip.

      2. Valtrex. This is a prescription medication usually intended for genital herpes. It is sometimes subscribed for cold sores also. Talk to your general doctor or a specialist about possible prescription treatments.

      3. Limit stress. Since the herpes virus is connected to your nervous system, a primary trigger of a cold sore outbreak is stress. Change your lifestyle to limit the amount of stress in your life. Practice stress relieving exercises such as meditation or yoga. A cold sore is often referred to as a worry wart. It is a visible sign that you are under physical or mental stress. A cold sore outbreak often causes a person to feel embarrassed which causes more stress and lengthens the time of the outbreak.

      4. Ice. Sudden changes in weather places stress upon your body. Cold sores often attack in early spring and late fall when temperatures can change drastically from day to day. Intense cold usually helps to counteract an attack. When you feel the initial tingling sensation of a cold sore outbreak, press a piece of ice on your lip where you have the outbreaks. Let the ice touch your bare skin while you hold the ice with a clean cloth. Practice this 3 times per day with a new cloth until the cold sores have disappeared. If you catch it early, you can often eliminate an outbreak.

      5. Chapstick. Keep your lips clean and moist. Don't allow your lips to chap or feel stress from the weather. Avoid allowing the cold sore to come in contact with saliva or water. After washing your face, towel dry the infected area thoroughly. During an outbreak, don't apply makeup to an infected area. The chemicals in the makeup may have negative interactions with the cold sore and prolong the outbreak.

      6. Sunscreen. Ultraviolet rays from the sun can trigger a herpes outbreak, even during the winter. Apply sunscreen to the areas affected by cold sores. This will help prevent possible outbreaks.

      7. Keep your immune system strong. Herpes usually attacks when your immune system is the weakest. A cold sore outbreak can even be an early sign of another oncoming illness such as the flu or a cold. Eat a healthy diet and take Vitamin C. Get at least 8 hours of sleep each night.

  41. QUESTION:
    How do I get rid of a pesky, painful cold sore?.?
    I had a flu shot a few weeks ago and never got a cold till I had that shot. Now I can't get rid of this one. Never had a cold sore before and this one hurts like the dickens. I have tried everything and it's been four days. Seems to get sorer by the day. Anyone know of any home remedy for this pesky thing?

    • ANSWER:
      I get one every couple of years if I run a temperature. It just takes time to heal. If you use Abreva, it will heal a lot faster. It is about .00 for a little tube, but I have found that it is definetly worth it.

  42. QUESTION:
    What do you do to get rid of a bad cold?
    I'm starting to miss a lot of school because of all of the colds I get.
    What medication or home remedies work fast for you?

    • ANSWER:
      Hi Doctor Leishman here, judging by what you've said, I have come to the conclusion that what you are dealing with here is quite possible H1N1 (commonly called Swine 'Flu). H1N1 is an airborne virus, as opposed to a contact virus, and can be easily spread by moisture molecules. So unless you want to spread the influenza further, please take to wearing a mask at all times. News coverage on the influenza over the past year has mostly told the public that the only cure is the Tammy 'flu vaccine, this however is a LIE. H1N1 can easily be cured by the simple procedure stated above by "the doctor", I suggest you start the above procedure immediately! If symptoms persist, seek professional advice, or, try an essence of murlap concoction. Hope this helps (:

  43. QUESTION:
    How do you fight flu without taking medicine?
    Is there a way to fight fever or flu without taking medications? It would be nice to know some home remedies for them.

    • ANSWER:
      there are things other than ibuprofins that can definitely HELP take a flu fever away:

      1. lots of liquids!!! you need to drink fluids after fluids to flush away the bacteria causing you to get sick. Juices are ideal! 5-6 cups of natural (not 100% sugar suff) orange, apple, cranberry, etc. juice. Drink at least 6 cups (or 2 bottles) of water everyday.

      2. sleep. dont go online or watch tv all day. sleep A LOT and try reading. reading really relaxes the mind and makes you a little tired so you can rest.

      3. alternating cold and warm baths. take 2 baths a day (you dont have to wash your hair or anything, this is just for your body temperature). take a cold bath in the afternoon. the colder the better, but dont freeze yourself. then, take a hot bath at night or first thing in the morning. the baths shoulnt be over 30 minutes long.

      4. food wise, eat mild, light foods. you may feel too sick to eat a large meal due to vomiting or other things, so try eating some light rice and plain yogurt on top. crackers and fruits always work! if you do happen to get really hungry though, either try soups or (if you hate soup or something) light pasta or potato french fries. stay away from fast food.

      well hope these helped!!! :-)

  44. QUESTION:
    my 29 months old daughter has the flu for three days?
    My daughter is 20 months with the flu.She has the flu for three days.She has a fever that won't go away she also has a cough and runny nose.Is there any good home remedies that i can do at home to give her.

    • ANSWER:
      If it includes vomiting and temperature, then you should take her to the ER NOW! 72 hours like that could be fatal. If she's not vomiting but just has cold-like symptoms, keep her hydrated (water or pedialite as milk will only increase mucus production) and rub some Baby Vicks on her chest and feet. Rubbing it on their feet and covering it up with socks really helps. You may also want to get a humidifier and run it in her room. I hope that she feels better soon.

  45. QUESTION:
    Has anyone had the crazy flu that is going around?
    I am feeling sick in a way I never have before, my lungs are congested and hurt, but I have no cold, I'm achy, have the chills but am sweating, and my head is killing me. Help please! Are there any good home remedies for this?

    • ANSWER:
      Thanks for answering my q.

      As for you, theres not much you can do but ride it out. If your fever gets high and you sweat take tylenol. Also ice on the head helps drop the fever and you wont feel as bad when the fever is lowered. Drink a lot, and take a lukewarm bath. The first night is the worst. I would go to the doctor tomorrow either way. Also watch out for bacterial infection. If your fever goes away for a few days then comes back go to the hospital. I hope you feel better!!

  46. QUESTION:
    Is there any way to stop yourself from catching a cold?
    I think I'm catching a cold, I can already feel the symptoms coming on. Is there any over the counter medicine or home remedy I can prepare to stop it? I take my GED test in FOUR DAYS and I don't want to be too sick to go!

    • ANSWER:
      Oh you poor darling take the Homeopathic remedy Arsenicum Album 200 soon as you think you are coming down with a cold and usually 2 or 3 doses taken at an hours interval will stop it from developing into fullfledged Flu. Works for me and my family everytime. Totally Marvelous results. And I am not a Doctor.
      Viva Homeopathy, nothing works better.

  47. QUESTION:
    What are some home remedies for a cold?
    I am home sick today with the flu/cold. I feel horible, my nose is tuffy my sinus's and head, and face is hurting, and my throat feels like somone is pouring acid down it. I know chicken soup helps, any other suggestions?

    • ANSWER:
      This is what i always do and it works everytime!!
      make some chicken noodle soup, not the canned soup. heat some chicken broth, chicken buillion work good, and use some egg noodles or spaghetti noodles or something and heat it up and add some spices like parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme. It's my brothers's favorite and it always helps me.
      also, drink a lot of hot tea, spearmint or mint tea helps with stuffy nose and sore throat!
      hope i could help. hope you feel better soon! :)

  48. QUESTION:
    Home remedy for bad head congestion?
    I'm sick with some sort of cold or flu, and the congestion in my head is really bad. I've already taken NyQuil but it's not helping. It's the middle of the night so I can't really go out and buy anything, but the pressure in my ear is killing me, the pain is almost unbearable. Are there any home remedies that can help with this? I'm desperate!

    • ANSWER:
      Depends on what you have on hand.
      A few drops of Hydrogen Peroxide in either ear will sometimes help, but if you have some fresh garlic on hand, that will work even better. I usually take a clove of garlic and slice of a few small pieces, placing each piece into both of my ears. Wonderful! And if you have a serious infection, you won't reek of garlic, because the odorous compounds of the garlic will be focused on combating the bacterial invasion instead of stinking up your life. If you don't have garlic now, then I would certainly advise you to keep a head of garlic handy for future use; it can keep for months in the crisper of your refrigerator.
      For one, it doesn't sound like either the cold or the flu, but the start of an upper respiratory infection, aggravated by seasonal allergies. I am going to leave off with a helpful link.
      Best of Luck!

  49. QUESTION:
    How to avoid a cold plus pain in my throat?
    Some people told me to eat onions or garlic, drink pomegranate tea?
    Can you help me with some tips or home remedies?

    Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      Avoiding a cold - Sanitize hands with antibacterial sanitizer whenever out in crowded places and touching doors, etc. like in malls or at school. A lot of cold and flu bugs get into our system in the air, when germs land on ears. Dabbing a bit of tea tree oil around earlobe before going into crowds helps if you don't mind smelling like teatree oil. Washing hands often also helpful. Taking antioxidants to boost immune function another helpful preventative.

      Pain in throat - If simple sore throat, gargling with salt water helpful. Also applying a bit of tea tree oil, diluted in massage oil, on throat and around lymph nodes on neck very helpful.

    Any home remedies to treat a rash under my cat's lip?
    My cat has this reddish mark under her lip, and I think it's a rash. What is it, and does anyone know any home remedies to treat it to save us a trip to the vet? Please don't answer just to tell me to take her to a veterinarian.

    Thanks in advance. ^^

    • ANSWER:
      Even the vet would say to let it heal on it's own. If it's a rodent ulcer (not something caused by rodents, this is a virus like our cold sores) then it has to heal by itself. Mine gets these occasionally, the cream from the vet didn't do much for it, but it did heal up on it's own.

    I have a runny nose and sore throat with some sneezing. Is this a cold or alergies maybe. I'm not sure if i'm alergic to anything. Is there any good home remedies that can help?

    • ANSWER:
      HOME REMEDIES FOR COMMON COLD
      * Vitamins are most helpful in fighting against the cold as well as other diseases. Vitamin C, also known as Ascorbic Acid, is helpful in preventing the colds and it can be found in many foods such as citrus fruits, some vegetables.
      * Zinc is also helpful for cold that can cut colds short. When you first feel that you may be getting a cold, start taking zinc
      * Garlic, as well as onion, is sometimes taken for the relief of congestion and minor infections.
      * Horseradish is another herb that has an excellent property to treat sore throat and upper respiratory tract infections, reduces fever, and expels concentrations of mucus.
      * Another effective remedy for sore throat is to gargle with a strong solution of table salt and warm water. Gargle several times a day.
      * Echinacea is an herb that acts as nature's antibiotic. It helps to increase the body's immunity and thus helps in fighting against the infection and illness.
      * Goldenseal is another herb that acts as a natural antibiotic, and can be taken to help fight against the cold.
      * Add 1/4 teaspoon of table salt to about 5 ml lukewarm water. Use this solution as a nasal drop. Use 1 to 2 drops in each nostril about 3 to 4 times daily.
      * A ginger tea can be prepared by boiling ginger in normal tea. It gives relief to congested nose.
      * Drink a teaspoonful of ginger juice mixed with equal quantity of honey.
      * Take hot water in a bowl and put some Thyme leaves. Inhale vapors by covering head with a towel.
      * Add 1 tablespoon of honey, 1 shot of lemon juice, 1 shot of whiskey to a coffee cup. Fill the remainder of the coffee cup with steaming hot water, stir, and sip until cold is relieved.
      * Make hot chicken soup with lots of garlic. Have when hot. It will help unclog nasal passage.
      * Warm ¼ katori mustard; add 4-5 cloves of chopped garlic. Apply this on nose, chest and back. Cover up and sleep.
      * Boil half a bowl of water, add few drops of eucalyptus oil and inhale the steam.
      * Sage is used to cure sore throat, stuffed nose, gingivitis and coughs, is a powerful antiviral, antibacterial and antifungal. Use as a gargle.
      * Warm up coconut oil. Gently massage the coconut oil over the child’s chest for about 5 minutes. Repeat the same on the upper portion of the back. The massage should be given just before child goes to sleep.
      * Avoid sugar (even natural sources) as it can impair immune function. Orange juice contains a much higher level of sugar than vitamin C. Therefore consuming lots of orange juice during a cold may do more harm than good.
      * Chilies, especially Jalapeno, are the best, most available and most effective antiviral.
      * Elderberry has been used for centuries to treat colds and flu. Recent research indicates that elderberry fruit extract may de-activate cold and flu viruses by preventing them from replicating.
      * A diet rich in fresh fruits, vegetables, salads, low saturated fats and whole cereals will provide protection against infective organism. Raw fruits and vegetables are better than the cooked one.
      * Take 1 tbsp of fresh gooseberry juice with 1/2 tsp ginger. It is a very effective remedy. This can be taken regularly to prevent recurrence of cold.
      * A tablespoon of ajwain crushed in the palms and tied up in a thin kerchief can be used for inhalation to relieve nasal block.
      * Boil 1 tbsp of pepper powder in a cup of milk along with a pinch of turmeric. Add some sugar for taste. Drink this once a day for three days.

  10. QUESTION:
    What are some home remedies to treat a yeast infection?
    I think I have a yeast infection, but I don't want to get any medicine or go to the doctor. Are they any home remedies to threat a yeast infection? Will it just go away by itself?

    • ANSWER:
      Tea Tree Oil

      A few drops of tea tree oil poured on a tampon and inserted in the vagina can provide some relief. It is important to dilute the oil before using it as tea tree oil is extremely potent and can cause inflammation if it is used in its undiluted form. Tea tree oil can be diluted by mixing a few drops of this oil along with a teaspoon of olive oil or sweet almond oil. Tea tree oil has anti fungal properties and will help to control the yeast infection as well as reduce yeast infection symptoms such as itching. Tea tree oil is one of the most effective vaginal yeast infection home remedies but it is necessary to first consult your doctor as some women may have an adverse reaction to this oil. Tea tree oil can also be used as a male yeast infection cure.
      Garlic

      For non-vaginal yeast infections, you can apply garlic paste directly on the affected parts. This remedy is for other affected parts of the body and not for the vaginal yeast infection. If you do not have fresh garlic, you can dilute garlic oil along with Vitamin E oil and a few drops of coconut oil and apply this blend of oils to the affected skin. While garlic oil helps to control the infection, Vitamin E oil helps to fortify the skin and coconut oil helps to provide it with several fatty acids that help to prevent the infection from spreading. Yeast infection home cures can be used alongside other treatments to help speed up the recovery process.
      Cold Coconut Oil and Cinnamon Oil

      These are two of the best natural cures for yeast infections in both men and women. Cold coconut oil or cinnamon oil can be applied on the infected areas 2-3 times a day to get rid of a yeast infection. Both these oils have effective anti-fungal properties which are very helpful in killing the yeast.
      Vinegar

      A hot sitz bath along with some added vinegar is a great way to relieve skin irritation and itching caused by a yeast infection. It is also an effective remedy to arrest the growth of yeast and restore the PH balance in the body.

  11. QUESTION:
    What is a working home remedy for acne scars on the face?
    I'd like some of your opinions for any home remedies you may have to treat mild acne scarring. Please don't bother mentioning any products to buy as none of them ever really work.

    I keep hearing about using digestive enzymes for scars because in theory they would soften the scar tissue ( which is protein ).

    So any advice?

    • ANSWER:
      Here is a simple tip that you can use to reduce your acne scars and pigmentation.

      The Oil Cleansing Method
      What you will need:
      Warm Water
      Cold Water
      Clean Towels
      Castor Oil
      Olive Oil

      The first thing you need to do is to wash your face gently to remove excess dirt and oils from the surface.

      You will then need to warm a clean towel in warm water and apply it to your face for 3 minutes. Do the same thing with the cold water but this time for one minute.

      Carry out both the warm water and cold water procedure about 3 times but always finish with cold and then pat dry with another clean towel.

      Next mix a small amount of castor oil with a small amount of olive oil. A 50/50 ratio will do just fine. Apply the mixture to your skin and let it stay there for 30 minutes and then rinse with warm water. Pat dry with a clean towel and you are good to go.

      Good Luck....

  13. QUESTION:
    Is there any home remedies to help with headaches?
    My friend who is a solider in the military has been having chronic headaches. They have been taking Bc powder and advil for them, but they have not helped. The doctor on base has now taken them off of taking anything, and I am wondering why. That sounds strange to me since most doctors would want to treat the headache. Yet I am no doctor so they following orders. I am looking for remedies to help them that does not include medicine since they can not have any. I told them a cold cloth, and dark room with quiet helps. I know acupuncture helps. I am just concerned for my friend and want to help. So does anyone know of any home remedies that might work? Thanks in advance.

    • ANSWER:
      Military doctors aren't much better than witch doctors; in fact, I'd prefer a witch doctor. That's why I've never submitted my disability claim to the VA.

      If he can take OTC meds (and obviously he can) there are couple of things I use when I run out of my normal migraine meds (Fiorinal w/ Codeine):

      Bayer Back and Body Aspirin
      Tylenol Extra Strength Rapid Release Gel Caps

      The aspirin works the best; it has essentially 2 of the ingredients in Fiorinal (aspirin and caffeine) without the barbiturate (relaxant) and codeine (pain reliever). If you add in something to relax the muscles with it (e.g., Valerian Root tea), it's almost as effective.

      Personally, if it was me, I'd get him to start questioning his doctor or start moving up the chain of command to find out why this guy is so incompetent. Either he's a complete idiot, or he's hiding something, and both warrant investigation. Most CO's don't take it kindly when military doctors are treating their soldiers badly.

I currently have a 8 month old that I am breastfeeding so a lot of medicines I cant take like antihistimines and decongestants.

    • ANSWER:
      hiya, you can treat conjunctivitus without prescription, i wouldn't wear contact lenses as it would keep the infection in the eye.

      use cool boiled water and get some cotton wool, wipe your eye once from you nose out, do not use the same peice of cotton wool more than once, if you do this a couple of times a day it should clear up.

  17. QUESTION:
    What is an at-home remedy to clear up a cold sore?
    We all know they are very unsightly and hopefully it will go away quickly.

    What at-home remedy do you use to clear up a cold sore?

    • ANSWER:
      Rubbing an ice cube on it will help ease the pain.
      Rub the juice from an aloe vera plant on the cold sore
      Dab with rubbing alcohol to dry it.

      Unfortunately, over the counter medications or home treatments are rarely the answer. There are also no effective prescription medications to use for this problem. Most doctors recommend letting the sore run its course or recommend remedies to shorten the duration slightly. These methods of treating cold sores are rarely effective and never prevent another breakout from occurring.

  20. QUESTION:
    I have a cold sore and i want to know how to get rid of it with at home remedies?
    It has gotten to its scab stage and it in the corner of my mouth so it is always cracking and it won't dry, I need at home remedies to get rid of it please?

    • ANSWER:
      Cold sores generally clear up without treatment within about two weeks. One of the most important things you can do is to keep your hands away from it. Don't pick at it. Picking at it can add a bacterial infection to the viral infection, and it will take longer to heal. Wash your hands immediately after touching the cold sore and avoid touching your eyes or your genitals after touching the cold sore. Keep hand sanitizer handy for those times when you can't wash your hands.

      There are a few things you can do to help the cold sore heal and to also treat the symptoms. Try covering it with a little vaseline which will help keep it moisturized and so less cracking and less pain. Don't try to cover it up with make up. That could aggravate it. Avoid getting your lips sunburned. Apply sunscreen to your lips before going outside.

      Avoid foods that might irritate it as it is healing - citrus fruit and juices, salty foods such as potato chips.

      Try chewing real licorice. There is evidence that an ingredient in licorice, glycyrrhizic acid, actually stops the cold sore virus. You do have to make sure it is real licorice, and not an imitation. The list of ingredients should say "licorice mass".

      Ice packs will help reduce the swelling and also help reduce the pain. Use an ice pack for about 15 minutes several times a day. Generally this treatment works best if you do it as soon as you feel the cold sore coming on.

      Soak a cotton ball in milk and apply it to the cold sore. Whole milk is best, not skim. It will help with both the pain and the inflammation, and if you do it as soon as you feel the cold sore coming on it can help reduce the duration of the attack.

      To prevent reinfecting yourself, you should get a new toothbrush when the cold sore has healed. A toothbrush can harbor the virus. This can prevent a recurrence.

      If you get cold sores regularly you probably know about the drug store options for treatment. Lysine has proven very effective in treating cold sores. Abreva treats the symptoms well and has been shown to lessen the duration of an attack. In my opinion the absolute best method to address cold sores is an oral anti-viral medication, Valtrex. Since I started using it (only when I feel a cold sore coming on) my attacks have lessened greatly, when I do have one it lasts only a day or two, and I have not had a bad cold sore in about 5 years.

      If you get cold sores you probably also know what your triggers are. Be aware that there are situations that bring on cold sores that you can avoid:

      dehydration
      too much sun, especially sunburn
      stress
      letting yourself get over tired
      fevers, colds and the flu - anything that compromises your immune system
      dental work

  21. QUESTION:
    What are some really good home remedies for acne?
    I have acne. It's not mild but not extreme.. I've been scrubbing my face each night with Noxema and it's not helping at all. Are there any home remedies that I can whip up with stuff just lying around the house that actually WORKS? Thanks.

    • ANSWER:
      Hi, I am a DIY person :) so I am always looking for homemade stuff instead of buying.

      I looked into the matter and I found out many natural home remedies for acne. Most of them will help your skin heal from the damage caused by your acne, but they won't cure the acne.

      But I didn't give up. One theory that made sense to me is that you need to treat the internal problem causing acne. That is - hormonal imbalances, toxines etc..

      How can you do that? - Primarily you must help the liver, the pancreas and the kidney.

      I am currently using "Apple Cider Vinegar" which is a natural cure for acne.

      Apple Cider Vinegar is an effective natural agent that cures acne by killing the bacteria and balancing our skin's pH level (which is a measure of acidity). It also absorbs excessive oil from our skin, which is a leading cause of acne.

      In the spring I will take a Dandelion cure.

      Dandelion shuns wet places, it has two outstanding qualities: it is useful in disorders of the liver and of the gallbladder.
      Dandelion and Stinging Nettle have a blood purifying effect. They aide the functions of the liver and the pancreas, thus reducing the hormonal imbalances in the body.

      Infusion: 1 heaped tablespoon of roots is soaked in cold water overnight, brought to the boil and strained next day. This amount is apportionately sipped, half an hour before and half an hour after breakfast.

      I also recommend a Nettle cure as an acne remedy.

      - Wear gloves when handling fresh nettle plants.
      - Remove leaves from stems and discard stems.
      - Fill a teapot full of nettle leaves
      - Pour boiling water over the leaves.
      - Steep for 5 minutes.
      - Add honey and/or lemon if desired and drink.

      The tea will be somewhat bitter. However, it is quite nutritious an especially high in calcium.

      Other quick homemade acne treatments I found to keep your skin clean:

      1. Garlic is an excellent treatment for acne, in case you did not know. Just rub with a garlic clove cut in two over the acne, or cut into slivers a garlic clove and apply over acne with a plaster, leaving overnight to act;

      2. Onion is a good apprentice in the fight against acne and its traces when it disappears. Make a puree with the blender and apply it as a facial mask once a week;

      3. Lemon juice applied to skin helps to close pores, and to increase the brightness of skin;

      4. Baking soda mixed with vegetal soap (preferably soap made only from olive oil or vegetable oil) is the best antibacterial scrub the skin;

      5. Mixture of fine sea salt to whites of an egg is very good for sensitive skin attacked by acne. Apply as a mask and remove easily with circular movements;

      6. Honey can be applied as a mask for acne skin;

      7. Vinegar is a good tonic antiseptic for acne, acting very gentle if you mix in equal proportion with water or green tea;

      8. Yogurt is very effective and safe for skin prone to acne. Apply directly from the jar, let it react 5-10 minutes, then rinse;

      9. Cut a gauze circle about the size of the face, soak it in fresh made green tea (very hot but not boiling) and apply on face. Let dry and remove carefully;

      10. Herbs such as echinacea, rosemary, dill and parsley are great for teas and infusions wich purify the skin.

  22. QUESTION:
    How can I ease ear pain at home?
    I don't think I have an ear infection and definitely not swimmer's ear, maybe just irritation in the ear canal from the cold weather and rain that we had today. It's in both ears, the right worse than the left. I don't have a heating pad, put I put a warm wash cloth over it and it seemed to help momentarily, but the pain came right back. Are there any home remedies i can use to treat it now until i can make a doctors appointment?

    • ANSWER:
      first off i would advise against any ear wax candles or peroxide, based on audiologist's recommendations...i've had a lifetime of experience with ear infections and surgeries and when i'm in pain i go for the hot washcloth....dampen it with water then stick it in the microwave for 30-45 seconds and it should stay warmer longer. and if it is an earwax build-up then that should loosen it up. Hope you are feeling better soon, i know how awful it can be :(

  23. QUESTION:
    Any home remedies to cure a cold?
    I'm not wanting to take any drugs really. I just want home remedies to help my cold. Anything from what to eat and what not to eat, and anything that can help my runny nose which is making my throat feel funny.

    • ANSWER:
      There are several things you can do:
      Herbs-

      1. Elderberry extract is derived from the sambucus tree or shrub. The extract is used to treat flu like symptoms at first sight. Elderberry extract can be used in a juice or syrup to shorten the duration of cold and flu like symptoms. Elderberries contain potassium, vitamin C and anthocyanins, a powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory. Although there has been nothing proven on why it reduces the cold and flu the main theory is that elderberry has very high oxygen radical absorption capacity, reducing free radicals in the body.

      Take 1 teaspoon of elderberry extract four to five times daily after the first sign of a cold or flu. Take it until symptoms subside, then 1 teaspoon daily for general health.

      2. Boneset is another herb from genus Eupatorium of the flowering plants, which helps to lessen the symptoms of the flu as well. Normally it is ingested as a tea because of the toxic affects the plant can have if ingested whole. Boneset is known to reduce fever from viral or bacterial infections through the act of sweating. Additionally boneset promotes the removal of phlegm through coughing.
      Homeopathic-

      3. Oscillococcinum is a homeopathic medicine, which relieves symptoms of the flu. Originally manufactured in France and has been in used in over 50 countries for the past 65 years. Easily accessible in local vitamin stores, natural food stores, organic grocery stores and online through Boiron.

      Natural-

      4. Gargle with warm salt water to reduce a sore throat. Salt is used as an antiseptic and disinfects the throat of germs. It is natural and inexpensive and can be used as often as needed.
      5. Rest is the most important part of recovering from the flu. The body is usually weak and drained from fighting off the flu virus that it is fatigued. Rest allows the body to recuperate after fighting against the flu.
      6. Drink fluids. Water is the most important thing to drink, but other fluids include hot teas, Gatorades to replace electrolytes, or pedialyte. Avoid caffeinated drinks that will act as a diuretic. When your body is fighting an infection, it is easier to become dehydrated and with all the symptoms that you are experiencing from the flu you don’t want to add symptoms from dehydration. Fluids also flush out toxins or reminisce of infection.
      7. Health juices such as mangosteen, noni, goji, aloe vera and acai berry are good replenishing drinks as well. In addition to keeping the body hydrated they have added vitamins, minerals and antioxidants to boost the bodies immune system.
      8. Clean out your ears with hydrogen peroxide. Hydrogen peroxide disinfects and kills germs. By putting a couple of drops in each ear you can kill cold and flu germs that can build up in the ear and cause infection. Use a cotton ball or Q-tip and allow the hydrogen peroxide to fizz and bubble. Drain from the ear with a tissue, then reapply until it no longer bubbles.
      9. Garlic is one of food sources that has high anti-bacterial properties. It can be used to help fight infection within the body. Additionally it has the ability to boost the immune system.
      10. Vitamin C is a natural cold reliever. It can be consumed through foods or supplement form. Vitamin C is prevalent in fresh fruits and vegetables. By consuming large quantities of vitamin C you can help the body fight infection and relieve symptoms of the flu.

  25. QUESTION:
    Strep throat home remedies for a person with cirrhosis of the liver?
    My bro has no insurance so he can't go to doctor. He has strep troath and needs some home remedies that won't hurt his cirrhosis of the liver?

    • ANSWER:
      Hi Sol

      I have healing remedies for both mentioned.

      Cause
      Sore throats are usually caused by viral infections, but can also be due to bacterial infections, tonsillitis, overuse of the voice, exposure to irritating substances such as cigarette smoke, allergic reactions, infections of the mouth, and/or colds and flu.

      Caution: Sore throats are rarely serious. However, if your sore throat does not heal within two weeks, and/or occurs with a rash, seek immediate medical attention. If any sore throat occurs with a rash, see a doctor. A sore throat caused by a Streptococcal infection (strep throat) must be identified and treated, or else it could create rheumatic fever or acute glomerulonephritis (disease of the glomerulus, a network of blood capillaries of the kidney).

      --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

      Natural Cures

      Aromatherapy: Inhalations with benzoin, lavender, thyme, eucalyptus, geranium, lavender, clary sage, or sandalwood can help relieve symptoms.

      Diet: Increase your intake pure filtered water, hot herbal teas, diluted fruit juices, and broths. Eat an organic whole foods diet that emphasizes fresh vegetables and vegetable soups. Avoid all sugars, alcohol, milk and dairy products and any and all foods to which you are allergic or sensitive. Raw organic honey placed at the back of the throat can also help soothe symptoms and speed healing.

      Flower Essences: Crab Apple.

      Herbs: If your sore throat is due to an infection, chew a small piece of osha root (Ligusticum porteri) and/or gargle with an infusion of sage or licorice. For a sore throat due to smoke or pollution irritation, gargle with an infusion of lavender or hyssop. Other useful herbs include echinacea, garlic, ginger, goldenseal, and slippery elm.

      Juice Therapy: Drinking the juice of one or two red potatoes can soothe symptoms.

      Nutritional Supplementation: The following nutrients can be helpful: vitamin A, beta carotene, vitamin C with bioflavonoids, and zinc (in the form of lozenges taken every 1-2 hours unless nausea occurs, in which case decrease dosage).

      Cause
      Liver function can be impaired by a toxic bowel. Most pharmaceutical drugs, if taken on a consistent basis, can also cause liver disease. If you are on such medications, be sure to have your liver function monitored regularly (every 3-6 months) by your physician, and consider other healing alternatives that might reduce or eliminate your need for medications.

      Caution: Serious cases of cirrhosis require immediate medical attention.

      --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

      Natural Cures

      Aromatherapy: Juniper, rosemary, and rose essential oils can all help stimulate liver function.

      Detoxification: Liver function can also be impaired by a toxic bowel. For this reason, bowel cleansing and rejuvenation techniques may be very important. In severe cases, repeat the bowel cleanse once a month, or as needed, and stay on bowel nutrients for up to one year depending on the severity of your condition and your response to treatment.

      Diet: Diet is extremely important in preventing and reversing all forms of liver disease, including cirrhosis. Eat a low-protein, whole foods diet of organic foods, including seeds, nuts, whole grains, beans, nuts, and goat or rice milk, and also eat plenty of leafy green vegetables. Avoid all alcohol and processed fats such as margarine, hydrogenated oils, and foods with these oils added, rancid oils, and hardened vegetable fats. Instead, use cold-processed oils such as olive. Also increase your consumption of foods high in amino acids and potassium, such as nuts, seeds, bananas, raisins, rice, wheat bran, kelp, dulse, brewer`s yeast, and molasses, and drink plenty of pure, filtered water. Avoid animal protein as well as raw or undercooked fish, and limit your overall intake of fish.

      Also avoid all stressors on the liver, such as overeating, drugs of any kind, a highly processed diet (especially one high in processed fats, additives and preservatives), and foods high in animal protein, and accumulation of toxins from chemicals that have to be processed by the liver such as alcohol, drugs, acetaminophen, insecticides, and chemicals from rancid and processed oils. Toxins from Candida yeast organisms within the body can also contribute to liver stress, as can the use of contraceptives.

      Herbs: Milk thistle is an excellent herb to help in the treatment of cirrhosis because it helps liver cells regenerate. It may be taken in the form of tablets or the non-alcohol extract called a glycerate. The dose is based upon the content of silymarin (the active ingredient of milk thistle) and so standardized extracts are preferable. The typical dosage range is 70-200 mg of silymarin daily. The herb Picrorhiza kurroa is not as well-known as milk thistle, but may have similar effects. Licorice can also be helpful. The Chinese herb bupleurum (chai-hu) may also be helpful, as can the herbal mixture of kutki (200 mg), shanka pushpi (500 mg), and guduchi (300 mg), with is used by practitioners of Ayurvedic medicine to boost liver function. Take 1/4 teaspoon of this mixture taken twice a day, after lunch and dinner, with aloe vera juice.

      Hydrotherapy: Hydrotherapy is the application of water, ice, steam and hot and cold temperatures to maintain and restore health. Treatments include full body immersion, steam baths, saunas, sitz baths, colonic irrigation and the application of hot and/or cold compresses. Hydrotherapy is effective for treating a wide range of conditions and can easily be used in the home as part of a self-care program. Many Naturopathic Physicians, Physical Therapists and Day Spas use Hydrotherapy as part of treatment.
      *Purified water is essential for any hydrotherapy treatment. The section Remedies for Treating Chlorinated Bath Water offers clear instructions and recommendations.

      Juice Therapy: The following juices can help the liver eliminate toxins that cause stress on it: beet and carrot juice and wheat grass juice. To either juice, you can add raw flaxseed oil and garlic as tolerated.

      Nutritional Supplementation: Lipotrophic factor nutrients are essential for aiding liver function. These include vitamin C, vitamin E, silymarin, lipoic acid, and raw liver tablets. Other useful nutrients in this regard include vitamin B complex, vitamin B12, folic acid, niacin (in small doses such as 10-30 mg. three times), liver glandulars, digestive enzymes with hydrochloric acid (HCL) and ox bile extract, and the amino acids L-methionine, L-carnitine, L-cysteine, L-glutathione, and L-arginine.

      Caution: For all cases of liver disease, do not use more than 10,000 IU of vitamin A daily and avoid cod liver oil entirely.

      Alternative Professional Care
      If your symptoms persist despite the above measures, seek the help of a qualified health professional. The following professional care therapies have all been shown to be useful for treating and relieving the symptoms of cirrhosis: Acupuncture, Cell Therapy, Detoxification Therapy, Magnetic Field Therapy, Natural Hormone Replacement Therapy, Naturopathic Medicine, Reflexology, Qigong, and Traditional Chinese Medicine.

      Best of health to both of you

  26. QUESTION:
    How to get rid of acne with home remedies in 1 week?
    Heey guys so im 13 and have a little pimples on my face and a little bit on my chest. I was just wondering if theres any home remedies I can use that will help in about a week or so. I want to make them a little bit less noticeable before Christmas and my birthday. Please suggest good ideas that worked for you and nothing stupid. Please don't go and tell me go buy this and that from a store, I almost tried everything and trust me nothing worked. Also don't suggest me to put toothpaste on my face, dosent work AT ALL. Thank You :D

    • ANSWER:
      There are many ways to cure acne. You have to experiment to find what is best for you. Everyone is different, so don't give up! :)

      The BEST treatment is prevention! My answer is already pretty long, so here is a good link(:
      http://m.wikihow.com/Avoid-Acne

      I always wash my pillow cases every week or so. It really helps!

      Avoid putting things on your face with a scent, such as hand lotion. It wil most likely cause more breakouts.

      "Non-comedogenic" products are best for your skin. Non-comedogenic simply means they will not make your face break out more. They won't have a scent or any other harmful ingredients.

      You can't go wrong with washing your face...
      Wash your face twice a day, with the hottest water you can stand. Hot water will open those pores for a much more thorough clean. Rinse with cold water to close those pores back aswell!

      Now when you are buying face wash.. You will notice there are two main active ingredients to treat acne.
      - Salicylic Acid
      - Benzoyl Peroxide

      Both are very effective treatments. When used together they can be even better. Just make sure to keep your skin moisturized, they will dry your face quickly.

      Salicylic Acid - Works by causing the cells of the epidermis to shed properly. This prevents pores from being clogged. The acid is also known to break down black heads as well as whiteheads. It also allows your skin to absorb more benzoyl peroxide.
      http://goo.gl/slGpN

      Benzoyl Peroxide - Removes dead skins cells and fights bacteria. When used correctly, it can also reduce redness. Probably the most effective by far.
      http://goo.gl/ACKkN

      Here are some other options if you want to experiment with at-home methods...
      http://m.wikihow.com/Make-Your-Own-Acne-Treatment

      I prefer to use natural products myself. Tea Tree oil has been proven to work as well as Benzoyl Peroxide with less side effects. Although it takes longer to show results. It isn't for everyone!

      I've started using a witch hazel toner. I love this stuff. It works very well to reduce redness and irritation. Here is a link for witch hazel uses and benefits..
      http://goo.gl/JKjwC

      Some research suggests vitamins such as A and all of the B Vitamins help with acne. Here's the link for that.. http://goo.gl/rnCk1

      Like I said before, everyone is different, so give everything a try! Here is a wiki article, for extra info!
      http://m.wikihow.com/Get-Rid-of-Acne

      Rubbing Alcohol... Will fight bacteria that cause acne. But alcohol will deffinatly dry that face fast, and potentially cause redness.
      * This can actually make acne worse if you dry out your skin... Use in moderation and moisturize often.

      To even skin tone and also fight acne I use an Alpha Hydroxy Acid lotion at 10% strength, 3 times a week. It is usually used for wrinkles and scars.(:
      http://goo.gl/dF1Ye

      A healthy diet is also very helpful.. But come on, we all know that isn't easy. Here's a link for tips on dieting to improve skin.
      http://goo.gl/Xgp4Q

      Moisturizing is VERY important for a healthy face. It will prevent a lot of dryness. When you get dryness and cracks in the skin, you are just asking for more acne.
      Always remember to use non-comedogenic products.

      * If you don't moisturize, your face will become oily, making you want to touch and wipe your face, spreading bacteria and other crap into those pore! Plus oil is more likely to attract dirt and dust.

      Finally, NEVER touch your face. It's probably the worse thing you can do. Besides popping your pimples... If you pop them, it will make them spread, leave scars, or even get infected. I don't advise popping them... But if you really must... Do it the right way! Here is a wiki article.. http://m.wikihow.com/Pop-a-Pimple

      Remember not to be discouraged. Everyone gets acne. It's normal. You just have to experiment to find out how YOU can control yours. Good luck :)

  27. QUESTION:
    What are some home remedies for acne?
    I'm 13 years old now I know that acne cant be cured overnight so I was wondering, what are some home remedies I can use to help treat it? Like would getting a cucumber mask from the brand 'Skinnygirl' actually work? My skin gets oily every now and then but its sensitive. Thanks so much!(:

    • ANSWER:
      Okay I'm going to be honest with you acne is natural and to truly stop it, you can't even if you use "proactive" because once you stop using it, all your acne comes back, believe me because I have acne and trust me I'v practically used everything for my face and that was bad because I made my pores sort of visible a bit. Also I have VERY oily skin as well! The home remedies you can use are:

      -Wash your face with warm salt water, that helps in the oiliness of the skin because mainly thats what really causes the acne in the first place.

      -Chamomile Tea: A natural anti-inflammatory, chamomile can significantly reduce acne flare-ups. To use, soak a chamomile tea bag in cold water and apply to skin for 30 seconds. Chamomile tea can also be used in a facial mask. Mix a few teaspoons of strong chamomile tea and a small ripe banana into a paste. Apply to skin with a cotton ball.

      -Tea tree oil: In an Australian study comparing the effects of tea tree oil and benzoyl peroxide on acne, benzoyl peroxide worked faster; however, tea tree oil produced considerably less side effects such as itching, stinging, and dryness. Tea tree oil should be diluted—5% oil to 95% water when used as a home remedy for acne. It can be found in health stores and is also a popular ingredient in many commercial acne skin care products.

      -Saw Palmetto: This herb is showing promise as a natural treatment for acne. There are no definitive research studies, but researchers have discovered enough anecdotal evidence to continue looking into saw palmetto’s ability to considerably improve acne cases.

      -Strawberries: are good options as natural home remedies for acne because they are a natural source of salicylic acid, an ingredient found in many commercial acne creams. To make a facial mask, mix 1/2 cup of pureed strawberries with a tablespoon of sour cream and use weekly. You can also cut a strawberry in half and rub it directly on your face for a few minutes to get a similar benefit.

      -Colloidal oatmeal: (Rolled oats that have been milled into a fine powder). To make colloidal oatmeal, grind rolled oats using a coffee mill or grinder. Cook the oatmeal and allow it to cool to lukewarm. Apply to skin, allowing it to dry until slightly crusty, then rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water.

      Also make sure to drink a lot of water because it also helps in keeping the skin flawless, you'll have pink lips and rosy cheeks as a benefit! :)

      GOOD LUCK :)

  28. QUESTION:
    I had a cold a month ago and now my nose and sinuses are really itchy all the time, any ideas?
    Following a cold about a month ago I've been left with really itchy nose and sinuses. It's around the bridge of my nose and across about a centimetre out towards my eyes.
    I've tried using a decongestant nasal spray, but it doesn't seem to help. I do have a mild dust allergy but I don't need to treat it.
    Does anyone have any home remedies I can try? Or is it time to visit the doctor?

    • ANSWER:
      Use saline nasal spray. It helps to thin out mucus. Also, your allergies could be getting worse. Have you ever tried Benydrl. This is OTC but could make you sleepy.

  30. QUESTION:
    What are some at home remedies to help a severe sunburn?
    Spent the day at the river yesterday and got a severe sun burn on both of my legs, about 2nd degree level. When I stand my legs tighten and it hurts like hell to even walk. I don't want to go to the ER. If anyone knows of any at home remedies, please let me know!

    • ANSWER:
      Use gentle cool compresses to reduce the heat. Possibly sit in a tub of cool/lukewarm water for a while. Apply aloe vera gel if you have any, and if you don't it would be a good thing to get someone to pick up some for you, or some other gel especially for sunburn. Take an appropriate antiinflammatory pain medication if you need one. Rest as much as you can for a couple of days until the burn starts to fade. Drink plenty of water as you are probably still very dehydrated.

      Vinegar has also been known to treat pain from a sun burn. Place some in a spray bottle and dilute it with some water. Then spray the affected area.

      Apply a topical pain relieving spray or a lotion that contains lidocaine, to lessen discomfort.Do not use spray near eyes.

      Apply a milk and bread compress.Soak slices of white bread in cold milk and apply to the affected area.The cold milk will draw heat from the area to cool the skin.Whole milk is best, as the fat in the milk is said to lubricate the skin and help it retain moisture.

      Definitely stay out of the sun for a few days.

      As your sunburn begins to heal your skin will begin to peel, and this will likely cause itchiness. Calamine lotion will help to soothe the itch that accompanies a bad sunburn, and keep you from clawing your already tender skin to shreds.

    Anyone know good home toothache remedies?
    I have a bad toothache. It hurts if I chew on anything harder than gum, and touching it with something cold is just unbearable. Anyone know good home remedies for a toothache?

    • ANSWER:
      You have signs of a tooth infection that can get very serious. In fact, prehistorically people would actually die of 'toothaches' because of the unchecked infection that went along with them.

      You need to see a dentist right away, before this spreads to other parts of your jaw or worse. Treat this as you would treat a gross open wound on your leg - See a medical professional to get it resolved.

  34. QUESTION:
    Does anyone have any at home remedies for the pain from kidney stones?
    My hubby has passed several stones in the past 2 weeks. He isn't doubled over in pain yet, but he can always tell when he is going to pass a stone. We have gone to the ER in the past, and they always treat him like he is a college student trying to get pain killers. He has smoe pain med here but they dont help much. Anyone have any "at home" remedies to help with the pain?

    • ANSWER:
      I just answered a similar question, which I'll paste in.

      Unless you have narcotics in the house, no. But ice might help. For whatever reason, I felt better when I was shivering. I just laid in front of a fan naked and eventually the pain stopped (for a while). By the same token, it's possible that applying ice directly to the painful area may not only help, but by making him cold and shivery, might help that way too.

      EDIT: Huh, I never thought about using Uristat or similar drugs for that....it might be worth a short. Uristat is a painkiller used by those having cystitis symptoms. Because it numbs the urethra, it might provide some relief.....Uristat is just one brand of painkiller used for cystitis...there are others but this is the only kind I ever used. The pills are indeed red and will eventually turn urine orange. If your hubby wears contacts he should take them out because they can stain them. You can find these at your average drug store.

  37. QUESTION:
    "What is the number-one way to treat a cold sore?"?
    I 'm prone to getting cold sores every time i get sick or run-down. They are so painful. I can't stand it! I like to do it as home remedy.

    • ANSWER:
      For cold sores, you should puncture the blisters and let the fluid out that way it'll dry up and heal MUCH quicker. A well-placed needle should do the trick, but please be careful. Also, if you can't stand the pain, this product called Blistex works very well. Just apply it on the cold sore and ther'll be this slight zingy sensation (like toothepaste) and you won't even remember that it's there. It's pretty cheap too...like 2 to 3 bucks at pathmark or duane reades.

  38. QUESTION:
    What do you consider the best medicinee or "home remedy" for the common cold/flu. NON- PRESCRIPTION?
    Over the country medicines. And maybe some of the "home remedies" to help get over a cold/flu. without prescrptions

    • ANSWER:
      ALL the so called cold medications only treat the symptoms and do not shorten your cold duration, in fact, the lengthen the time you have a cold or flu.

      Many of the medications interrupt the body's normal immune functions, like anti-inflammatories. The body's natural immune response to infections is inflammation. This creates a site in the body where more blood flow is created. This brings more nutrients to the site and allows healing to be faster and more effective. The anti-inflammatories, make you feel better, but lengthen the time the body will have the problem and inhibits the healing process.

      If you really want to avoid getting a cold or the flu, you need to do the following at the very first sign of getting sick:

      Purchase Nucleotides from: www.healthline.cc ( not the .com web site with the same name). Take one of the capsules each 1/2 hour the same day you feel the cold coming on. The next day it will be gone.

      Now, you need to change your diet, so you won't be getting sick any more. Avoid ALL FLU SHOTS! They are a joke and only line the drug companies, like Merck with billion dollars per year for each type of vaccine they produce. What a joke on the American public. It's really outrageous. The vaccines only suppress your immune system and give you only temporary immunity from one or a few strains of the virus. Doesn't it make more sense to build your ENTIRE IMMUNE SYSTEM to defend against ALL FLU'S and COLDS!

      There are very well respected professional medical people that are dead set against giving flu vaccines and other vaccines in general because of all the problems and even deaths from these things. There is a HUGE controversy brewing that the general public is not being told.

      A very good book on this subject that explains the controversy in great detail and gives very credible information that is very well documented is called, "The Sanctity of Human Blood" by Timothy O'Shea.

      By the way, don't run out and buy a bunch of ZINC for your cold either. Too much zinc will deplete your body of copper and they you will have some big issues to deal with in regard to your ADRENAL GLANDS!
      good luck to you

    what are some home remedies to treat a pretty bad tooth cavity?
    I have a bad cavity in one of my left molars and it is killing me! I can't eat cold things or hard crunchy things like chips etc. I need to do something about this!

    • ANSWER:
      The only option you have to fix the problem is to go to a dentist and have it restored properly. There are no home remedies that will fix a cavity. The longer that you wait to get it restored the worse it is going to get. Decay will continue to spread and could lead to root canals or worse, an extraction. Good luck!

  41. QUESTION:
    What are some at-home remedies for athlete's foot?
    I have athlete's foot, and it's really irritating me. I've had it for a while, because I stupidly wore wet socks when I was at camp. I tried looking for some antifungals in my house, but I couldn't find any, and I didn't have much time today to go to the drug store, and now I'm on my last nerve. Are there any at-home remedies you have to cure athlete's foot?

    • ANSWER:
      Tea tree oil is a natural antifungal that you can use to treat athlete's foot, since athlete's foot is an infection of the skin. It won't take the itch away immediately though. Try soaking your feet in cold water, then rubbing calamine lotion on them. You can also try aloe if you don't have calamine.

      Also, this will sound strange, but if you have any Orajel you can spread a thin layer of that on the itchy parts of your feet. Orajel is a topical anesthetic so it numbs whatever you put it on. Usually it's used for tooth pain, but it works just as well if you rub it on an area of your skin that hurts or itches.

      Good luck!

    When I squeeze my nose, white pus-like stuff comes out of the pores. I've been researching it and I guess they are whiteheads. They aren't pimples, I mean you can't notice them unless I take of my makeup and you look up close, there's white pus clogged in the pores. Are there any home remedies I can use to clear this up? If not, what type of thing should I buy? Will pore strips clear it up? Thanks in advance. And if you're going to tell me it's disgusting, I know that already, so don't even bother. You see, there's this thing called a block feature, and I'm not afraid to use it. =]

    • ANSWER:
      This all goes for acne or anything acne related like white puss. Take cold showers instead of hot ones, try at least 2 a day, they keep your pores closed and let the cold water come down on your face (and were ever else theirs acne, the more you do the less redness their will be. Don't use rubbing alcohol on your face as it will make your blemishes redder, it will kill the bacteria on your face but it will also kill the natural occurring chemical in your body that prevents acne. I just wash using Neutrogena. This is not a rude comment or anything but an honest one, don't masturbate or have as much sex, their is a naturally occurring chemical in your skin that goes to keep your skin clear and to hormones, in some people when they masturbate or have sex their hormone level will heighten and more of the chemical will go to hormones, instead of your skin, which may cause excess acne. Try all of this and see your wonderful results.

    Asthma and Emphysema sufferers: What do you do to treat these conditions at home? Which do you have?
    Asthma and Emphysema sufferers: What do you do to treat these conditions at home? Which do you have?

    What kind of home remedies do you use?What types of foods do you eat and foods to avoid?Do you follow a special diet? What's the diet called and what's it consist of? Any other advice you can give me? My Doctor thinks I may have both conditions!(I recently quit smoking, that helped a lot. My inhaler "Combivent", doesn't help much. It helps a little. I had symptoms of COPD and Asthma most of my life, long before I ever smoked a single cigarette. The biggest symptoms I've always had were: Chronic cough and shortness of breath. I was diagnosed with Emphysema last year at age 38.Asthma diagnosis was last week. It. Took. 39 years before a Doctor could figure out why I was having breathing problems!)Anyway, which condition(s) do you have and what suggestions do you have that could help?Also, do you know of any good books on the Android market, that are cheep and informative on these conditions that have information about: Diet, meds, and basic, Scientific info about the conditions?

    • ANSWER:
      I have COPD... emphysema chronic bronchitis , and /or asthma. I had chronic bronchitis forever (seems like) and now it is emphysema. The first five years after my diagnosis, I used an inhaler similar to the one you use. It is for emergencies.. episode.. whatever you call it. When you are very breathless. When my Dr. realized that I was using it all the time, he added some maintenance drugs and told me to use the inhaler (albuterol) only when needed. He added Advair and a few more years he added Spiriva with the Advair. Both of my parents had emphysema.. so with time I will start using a (can't think of the name) it's a little machine that steams out the medicine. And then Oxygen therapy. HOme stuff. NO cigarette... not even 2nd hand smoke. Avoid anything that irritates your lungs. I am very sensitive to perfume and will leave a place if someone has it on because I will wheeze for days. Exercise as much as possible. At this point, that means a long walk, but you may be able to do much more at this point and it's GREAT to exercise your lungs. I am lazy with diet, but lots of vegetables and fruit are best for me. I feel best when I avoid processed foods and too much beef. BUT I am a member of many emphysema chat groups and we aren't all alike. You need to pay attention and see what bothers you. Some of us prefer cold weather some hot. Some like altitude etc etc. I feel best when I am VERY hydrated... drink tons of water. I don't know any books to suggest.. but I LOVE my chat groups because when I get scared, someone has experienced it before and can help me. For instance... we look ok and people have difficulty realizing how sick we are. There can be a lot of depression with this disease. One of my groups is on FB, It is called "(COPD) Emphysema/chronic bronchitis" Email me if you want.

Instances of nausea that are simply temporary and do not have a clear cause will simply pass and some home remedies for nausea may actually help relieve or diminish the annoying symptom. The best thing to do would also be to keep yourself well hydrated and get adequate rest. Where a specific condition is at fault you need to seek medical help to treat that condition. If the nausea is caused because you are pregnant however, there is little that you can do, as symptoms will only pass naturally once you’ve gone through the entire gestation cycle. In such scenarios in particular, treatment with medicated drugs is not advisable, which is why there is an abundance of natural cures for nausea during pregnancy. During a pregnancy, nausea remedies can come in really handy as pharmaceutical products are advised against, since they can adversely affect your unborn baby. During early pregnancy, nausea remedies and natural treatments are particularly sought after. Before using any natural remedies during early pregnancy for nausea relief make it a point to consult your doctor however.

  49. QUESTION:
    I have a wart on my lower lip i think. how do i get rid of it?
    I don't know if its a cold sore or what. It is soft but has a hard middle. And I think its purple in the center. Would it possibly go away by itself or is there any home remedies or anything?

    • ANSWER:
      If it is a wart it may or may not go away by itself. You really should see a doctor about it if you think you have a wart on your lip.

      However, it if it a cold sore it will go away on its own. Cold sores generally clear up without treatment within about two weeks. One of the most important things you can do is to keep your hands away from it. Don't pick at it. Picking at it can add a bacterial infection to the viral infection, and it will take longer to heal. Wash your hands immediately after touching the cold sore and avoid touching your eyes or your genitals after touching the cold sore. Keep hand sanitizer handy for those times when you can't wash your hands.

      There are a few things you can do to help the cold sore heal and to also treat the symptoms. Try covering it with a little vaseline which will help keep it moisturized and so less cracking and less pain. Don't try to cover it up with make up. That could aggravate it. Avoid getting your lips sunburned. Apply sunscreen to your lips before going outside.

      Avoid foods that might irritate it as it is healing - citrus fruit and juices, salty foods such as potato chips.

      Try chewing real licorice. There is evidence that an ingredient in licorice, glycyrrhizic acid, actually stops the cold sore virus. You do have to make sure it is real licorice, and not an imitation. The list of ingredients should say "licorice mass".

      Ice packs will help reduce the swelling and also help reduce the pain. Use an ice pack for about 15 minutes several times a day. Generally this treatment works best if you do it as soon as you feel the cold sore coming on.

      Soak a cotton ball in milk and apply it to the cold sore. Whole milk is best, not skim. It will help with both the pain and the inflammation, and if you do it as soon as you feel the cold sore coming on it can help reduce the duration of the attack.

      To prevent reinfecting yourself, you should get a new toothbrush when the cold sore has healed. A toothbrush can harbor the virus. This can prevent a recurrence.

      If you get cold sores regularly you probably know about the drug store options for treatment. Lysine has proven very effective in treating cold sores. Abreva treats the symptoms well and has been shown to lessen the duration of an attack. In my opinion the absolute best method to address cold sores is an oral anti-viral medication, Valtrex. Since I started using it (only when I feel a cold sore coming on) my attacks have lessened greatly, when I do have one it lasts only a day or two, and I have not had a bad cold sore in about 5 years.

      If you get cold sores you probably also know what your triggers are. Be aware that there are situations that bring on cold sores that you can avoid:

      dehydration
      too much sun, especially sunburn
      stress
      letting yourself get over tired
      fevers, colds and the flu - anything that compromises your immune system
      dental work

  50. QUESTION:
    What is a good remedy for psoriasis?
    I have a severe form of psoriatic arthritis. I have come on a RX that alleviates the pain of the arthritis, but my skin is in very bad shape. ointments and creams have not helped. And we are talking about VERY expensive RX ointments. Any home remedies anyone has tried for extreme conditions that have worked?

    • ANSWER:
      Try these home remedies:

      With regular doses of intense sun, 95 percent of psoriasis sufferers improve. It's the ultraviolet waves that fight psoriasis, and the UVB rays work the fastest. But there's a catch-22. UVB's are also the ones that give you a sunburn and run up the risks for skin cancer. They can also cause psoriasis sufferers to break out in previously unaffected areas.

      There is, however, an out. Sunscreen. "The benefits of sunbathing can outweigh the risks of skin cancer and spreading psoriasis if you use sunscreens on the places where you don't have psoriasis and only expose the affected areas to the full force of the sun.

      Get yourself a small UVB sunlamp to treat patches of psoriasis. You may prefer the UVA light found in tanning parlors, but it's weaker and needs much more time to work.

      Over-the-counter coal tar preparations are weaker than the prescription versions but can be effective in mild psoriasis. You can apply the tar directly to the plaques or immerse yourself in tar bath oil and treat your scalp with tar shampoo. Since even the OTC tars can stain and smell, they're usually washed off after a certain amount of time, but some kinds can be left on the skin to enhance the effect of sunlight or UVB treatments. "Tar makes you more sensitive to the sun, so be careful.

      Baths and heated swimming pools are excellent for psoriasis. Cold-water bath, maybe with a cup or so of apple cider vinegar added, is great for itching. "Another thing that really works is ice,". "Just dump some ice cubes into a small plastic bag and hold it against the afflicted skin."

      OTC topical cortisone creams are weaker than their prescription cousins, but they're worth trying, and they're safer on the face and genital areas..

      Researchers have discovered that covering lesions with tape or plastic wrap for days or weeks can help clear up psoriasis, especially if cortisone cream is applied first.

  7. QUESTION:
    What is a good way to clear up pimples and acne?
    I have been washing my face ALL THE TIME and going to a dermatoligist and using alcohol pads on my face and using an acne on-the-spot treatment and none of it has been working. Any help with a home remedy cure that will clear it up?

    • ANSWER:
      Washing too much can cause your skin to produce more oil to compensate for what you're washing off, causing more breakouts. Alcohol does the same thing. Try washing twice a day with Neutrogena Oil Free Acne Wash Daily Scrub (exfoliation is more important than people think), followed by Stridex Maximum Strength ALCOHOL FREE Acne pads, and treating with Neutrogena Rapid Clear Acne Defense Lotion. Spot treat with Tea Tree Oil. All this stuff is gentle on your skin and won't cause your skin to produce more oil because it will be naturally hydrated, and you'll still be getting intense treatment.

    also not just a little zit or pimple that you can cover up with makeup it has to be like an embarrassing one kind of like thats red and a bump and just you want to put a paper bag over your face but its just one

    • ANSWER:
      Before you buy any acne treatment product you should take the following into consideration:

      1. Know your skin type. People with oily skin should choose a gel based product, those with dry skin should choose a cream. If you are like most people and have combination skin, choose the product that best works with the afflicted area. If your acne flares up in the oily spots, choose a gel, if it is the dry skin that gets the zits, choose a cream.

      2. The more sensitive your skin, the lower concentration of active ingredient you will need. Choosing a product that is too strong could actually make the situation worse by over drying the area and causing the skin to react by increasing oil production. This can end up causing more acne. If you have sensitive skin, stick with the milder formulations.

      3. Some mild creams can be used as a preventative measure, but most acne creams are too harsh to be used before you see or feel a zit. Read the lables carefully and only apply the medication to places that are acne prone or actually have acne present.

      4. If the acne is excessively painful, or if it becomes painful after trying an OTC product, try taking an anti-inflammatory medication like ibuprofen and get to a doctor ASAP.

      5. If your skin has large pustules that appear in clusters, if they are painful, if your acne causes scars, or if you can't seem to get rid of a blemish (it starts to go away only to reappear just when you thought it was gone), your acne may require treatment by a doctor.

    • ANSWER:
      Okay, so I have been through the share of going through different cleansers with different ingredients and following routines, but nothing worked. Then I found Noxzema which has been around for forever. Get it and use it like twice a day every day and then you can scale back a little afterwards if you would like. This cleared up my skin so fast within a week. I used to have pretty rough spots around my beard area, but it has made my skin clearer and smoother in less than a week. It's amazing! Use it! I swear by it and I have only used it for less than a week! I promise! It's just simple cleanser with no harsh ingredients and it makes your skin smell amazing and feel amazing!

      NOXZEMA

      Myself and others who gave me the product. And I have gone to the dermatologist and I have been prescribed tons of different medications, but nothing worked! Noxzema! (It's in a blue container and can be found in Target)

I've tried Proactive, Skin ID, Topical Gel, the Tea Tree skin clearing products, Active Naturals scrubs, Natural home remedies, store bought products like Biore, Neutrogena night and day, face masks, on-the-spot treatments and gels, moisturizing lotions w/active ingredients, and a bunch of acne clearing products from Spas after I get my monthly facials! I have even tried to diet n eat good healthy foods for skin and took Skin IDs acne vitamins! It feels like I have tried everything, but NOTHING seems to work! My face will sometimes clear up for a few days, but then I will break out even more after using any product! I also quit smoking cigs about 3 months ago because I wanted to and I thought it would help clear up my skin! And it helped a little but that only lasted the first month!

    Oh I'm currently using proactiv only at night because it dries my skin out a lot and I always put moisturizer with spf 15 on day and night.

    • ANSWER:
      Acne scars are the blemishes or the watery spots occurring on the skin and spoiling the smoothness of the skin. They get problematic owing to the delay in recovery. Some might prolong their stay on the skin forever. Though it is always advisable to see a doctor for acne treatment, one can even try some natural remedies for treating this acne problem. This natural treatment can certainly return the natural glow of the skin.

      Drinking plenty of water: Quoting some experts, water is the best treatment available for acne scars. Water is an amazing cleanser and has rejuvenating properties too. Hydrated body helps to cleanse the dead skin cells from the body. Also, growth of the new skin cells is facilitated when there is enough water in the body.

      Increase your intake of lemon juice: Citric acid, present in the lemon juice, is effective for treating acne scars. It facilitates rapid shedding of the dead skin cells; while also promoting the growth of the new and healthy cells.

      Vitamin rich fruits and vegetables: People having acne must exercise an increased love for fruits and vegetables, as they are rich in essential minerals and vitamins that are helpful for restoring the natural beauty of the skin. The juices contained in the fruits help to maintain the water balance in the body. Thus a rich intake of fruits and vegetables is certainly a primary step towards getting a healthy looking skin.

      Intake of balanced diet: Just like any other disease, a large part of the healing process depends on the diet. A nutritious and a balanced diet is a must for ensuring a healthy and a glowing skin. A healthy diet also supplies all the essential nutrients necessary for fighting the infections that can complicate the acne scars.

      The application of Aloe vera gel on the scars also helps in getting rid of the acne scars. Tomato is also helpful for treating acne scars as it contains Vitamin A that controls the overproduction of sebum that is primarily responsible for causing acne scars. The antioxidant properties of tomato are also responsible for rejuvenating the damaged skin.

      Other treatments for acne can include using honey, fullers' earth, rubbing ice cubes over the infected area or even using rose water. Following these natural remedies will certainly help you getting rid of acne.

      Good Luck...

    How can i heal/fix burns on my skin?
    i used the clean and clear acne spot treatment gel thing. (big mistake) and now it left burn marks on my face. is there a way to get rid of them? any products and or home remedies? im deseperate to get rid of them as makeup is not working too well and being that i am a hostess/sales associate i am the face of my job which sucks.

    so far ive been putting ice on it but it doesnt seem to be doing much aside from making it less tender to the touch.

    • ANSWER:
      Historically, a major use of aloe vera was to aid in the treatment of minor skin irritations. Many households kept a live aloe, or “burn plant” for first-aid use. Essentially identical to the aloe vera’s inner leaf, FLP's "Aloe Vera Gelly" from 100% stabilized aloe vera gel lubricates sensitive tissue safely. Specially prepared for topical application to moisturize, soothe and condition, Aloe Vera Gelly is a thick, translucent gel containing humectants and moisturizers. Readily absorbed by the skin, it soothes without staining clothes.

      Aloe Vera Gelly provides relief from burns, sunburns, minor skin irritations and traumas. It can also be used on the skin prior to ultrasonic treatment, or after electrolysis. Hairdressers use the Gelly around the hairline to protect the skin before perming and coloring.

      I think that Aloe Vera Gelly will help you.

  21. QUESTION:
    What are some home remedies for bleaching my skin?
    I have dark scars and spots all over my body and I would like to know if there is any home remedies for bleaching skin. No Micheal Jackson joke or you should be proud of your skin color or it's dangerous to bleach your skin.

    • ANSWER:
      There are no effective or safe ways to 'bleach' your skin. There are effective ways to remove hyperpigmentation, sunspots and dark scars. It's called a Photofacial or Fotofacial. It's a laser treatment that kills cells with dark pigment and leaves the healthy ones alone. It works very well. The dead cells rise to the skin's surface and flake off. FYI you will look pretty horrible for the first 24-48 hours and will not be allowed to wear makeup so plan for that. Also be prepared to have 3 or more treaments and spend some $$$.

  22. QUESTION:
    Is there any good home remedies for spots or a cheap treatment that works well?
    At the moment I own clean and clear deep cleansing lotion and I also own clean and clear blackhead clearing cleanser. Is one better than the other? Is there any other cheap spot treatments that work fast and effectively? Thanks.

    • ANSWER:
      If you have the following :

      Dry skin 
      Oily skin
      Acne
      Acne scars
      Flaking 
      Peeling
      Redness and irritation 
      Clogged/enlarged pores
      Sensitive skin

      Oatmeal could help you! 
      Oatmeal calms irritation , softens your skin and can prevent acne! I found that it also helps get rid of my scarring, including the old scars

      YouTube : bubzbeauty- has a video called Beautiful skin remedy . She gives lots of information about oatmeal .
      Abeautifulxmess- has a video called oatmeal cleanser 1 month review. I would check that out as well.

      Use an oatmeal cleanser every morning and night.

      Here's what you need and instructions!

      Washcloth
      Oats, quick oats work great !
      Water, hot and cold

      Grind up the oats until t looks like flour, this is not mandatory but when the oatmeal is in smaller pieces it cleans your pores better. 

      1) rinse your face with warm water and pat it dry , use makeup remover if you need it.

      2) take half a teaspoon of of the oats and mix is with one teaspoon of hot water. This should form a paste.

      3) rub this paste on your skin until it starts to dry up.

      4) take your washcloth and run it under hot water, squeeze out the excess and drape the washcloth over your skin  for 30 seconds . Repeat this step one more time.

      5) after the final steaming use your washcloth to wipe of the oatmeal . Then rinse your face with cold water or run and ice cube over your skin to close your pores. Follow up with a moisturizer!

      Make sure your not allergic to oatmeal ! 

      Good luck !

But too make the process faster, got any more home remedies?

    • ANSWER:
      As a sufferer of acne, I was finally glad to get my life back after using a simple home remedy for acne that worked and got rid of my acne.

      I always hated life, I would awake in the morning and just couldn't face the mirror in my room, the sight of my own face would turn me off even more, I would just sit there feeling depressed.

      No one can imagine the many different acne treatment solutions I tried, one after the other, it seemed as if nothing worked. But, I just never gave up hope that one day I would finally be able to rid myself of acne.

      I would face the day asking myself one question:

      Is there a acne cure that works for me?

      I began to get depressed and tried to avoid my friends and family, my bedroom became my world, just living compound to those four walls. I used to spend hours and come up with very lame excuses, just to not face anyone.

      The one day it happened, I saw an online ad, that stated that an overlooked yet simple home remedy for acne can rid you of acne.

  26. QUESTION:
    What's the best home remedy to reduce redness of spots and get rid of them?
    I'm a Teenager and I have a few red spots on my chin and forehead and I want to get rid of them , but since it's school holidays I'm stuck at home and I need a home remedy to get rid of the spots!

    Someone Please Help Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      You can try rubbing the inside of the skin of a watermelon (after scraping off the red fruit), this will give instant relief by giving a cooling effect and also possibly reduce redness.

      Take some oat (flakes) and grind into a powder. Make a paste of this with water and use this instead of soap while bathing. This relieves itching and redness.
      Sandalwood oil (not paste) should be applied to the affected area since the first day of appearance of rash till the fall of scabs.

      Apply Vitamin E oil over the skin will also help the healing process.

      Honey smeared over the skin will help reduce redness.

      It is important to realize that it is difficult to get rid of scars. They do not disappear with natural treatments. Various medical treatments like dermabrasion, punch grafts, chemical peels and laser treatments will help to smoothen out scars or lessen them. These should be administered from a professional preferably a dermatologist.

  27. QUESTION:
    Are there any good home remedies for acne?
    see here, I was born with my mother's terrible skin. I have uncontrollable acne and it seems that I've tried every brand of acne treatment under that sun. I have tried two at home remedies. overnight spot treating with honey and overnight treating with toothpaste. And they haven't helped. But I don't think it's really necessary to see a dermatologist at this point, much less can my parents afford it. Please give me a good home remedy and accurate directions, ingredients, & measurements.
    thanks, Ali

    • ANSWER:
      have you tried proactiv? i love it. i've used it for three years and I'll never use anything else. it's 20/month and they send you a new kit every other month (so it's like 40 for the kit). it lasts a long time though and they give you a mask spot-treatment that is just amazing. (every other two months I call and ask them to freeze my account because I don't need any more kits for a while, and each time they have.) i also use the oil-free moisture every day because it has spf 15 and makes my skin feel amazing.

  28. QUESTION:
    Home remedies to get rid of fresh pimples?
    I keep getting pimples on my forehead, one after another! They're all pretty fresh so I can't pop them but they're big and it looks bad. I don't have anything to treat them right now so I was wondering if anybody knows any home remedies to get rid of them.

    Oh and also, does anybody know if putting on Genes vitamin e creme on face is ok?

    • ANSWER:
      Ice is a good spot treatment to reduce the swelling and redness from a breakout. To treat your acne inflammation, take a piece of ice from the freezer, wrap three quarters of the ice in a towel and rub the affected area with the exposed portion of the ice for 15 minutes. [info from ehow]

      I personally think salt water mixtures work great as well. Just mix some salt into warm water (sea salt works best, but you can use table salt) and rub the mixture on your face. Leave for 5 minutes then rinse. (:

  33. QUESTION:
    What are some home remedies for pleurisy?
    I know for a fact i have pleurisy (sharp pains in one spot on the side of my chest). it is causing me a lot of pain but would rather not go to the doctors.
    does anyone know any home remedies besides taking tylenol and heat on the spot that would help?

    thanks in advance. :o)

    • ANSWER:
      If you are allowed to take motrin/ibuprofen - that may give you a little better relief than tylenol - take as directed on the side of the box. If you haven't already gone to WebMd.com and typed in "pleurisy" - it will give you much more information there on how to take care of this condition. You can also type in costochondritis and see if your symptoms match and read the treatment recommendations there also because this could be costochondritis rather than pleurisy. And, common sense should tell you that if it continues to get worse and worse instead of gradually better, then it is time to see a doctor.

    I've been breaking out a lot more than usual and I'm trying to find home remedies that will help with that. Also, if any one knows any that help in smoothing complexion and softening skin, I would greatly appreciate it. :)

    • ANSWER:
      I tried to trow in some home remidies. :D

      ~Always eat healthy,I am vegan I strive to eat as healthy as possible,I love to eat antioxidant-rich foods such as blackberries,blueberries,strawberries and lots and lots of dark leafy green veggies like kale,mustard greens,broccoli,brussel sprouts,snap-peas etc
      I also make sure to drink AT LEAST 8 glasses of water a day,a great way to do so is to start when you wake up,try drinking lemon water it give a great kick-start to your metabolism.

      ~As soon as I wake up I like to palates,I use this one when I am in a hurry:

      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=15Uxbv4WOpo

      ~And I have a book that comes with a DVD called 15 Minute Total Body workout for Teens..or something like that(it's at my dads house right now,so I can't really find out what the name is)

      ~Some other ways to exercise is to ride your bike,jog,or walk your dog(if you don't have one ask your neighbours if you could walk theres).

      ~Skin care is very important to!,I recommend natural cleanser (Cetaphil, Purpose, Kiehls, and Desert Essence all are great),once a week give your self a nice steam facial which helps release toxins and opens pores,then use a mask I like Ecco Bella’s Dark Chocolate Face Mask or you can just use eggs (cheap and they work really really well!),also a nice gentle exfoliant such as Earth Science Gentle Apricot Scrub,or baking soda.For a moisterizer use jojoba oil for oily skin and I recommend a cream moisterizer for dry such as Desert Essence Daily Essential Facial Moisturizer.

      ~Remember to relax take a break once in a while (including makeup!),give your self a spa day!,or take a nice walk.

      ~Try not to wear makeup to much I only wear makeup for special events,I like Urban Decay's vegan makeup.

      http://www.urbandecay.com/vegan.cfm

      ~For a natural spot treatment try tea tree oil or honey mixed with nutmeg.

      ~Try getting a sunscreen that's at-least SPF 15 and up!.

      http://www.ewg.org/whichsunscreensarebest/2009report

      ~And remember keep your chin up nothing is more beautiful then confidence!.

      ~Avoid consuming too much dairy, and if you absolutely must have it, try to have organic milk and cheese that haven't been pumped up with as many toxins. The hormones from a cow will be passed on to you when you drink its milk, and they can interfere with your own hormones

    • ANSWER:
      I used to be a lifeguard and have some sun spots. I've been looking into procedures and found that laser skin resurfacing is supposed to take care of the problem. This page has some information about it. If you haven't already, you might also want to see a dermatologist or doctor about it.

    How to get rid of dark spots from acne?
    I have dark spots on my face from acne, and I'm only 18. I have maybe two or three, and makeup will cover them up, but I still don't want them there. Is there any treatment out there that I can buy without spending money at the dermatologist or any home remedies?

    • ANSWER:
      Acne

      Maintain a routine. Most acne treatments take time to work. It usually takes between two and eight weeks before you see any significant improvement, so you are going to have to be patient. Once you've gotten your acne cleared up, it's important to continue with the treatment that's working so it does not return.

      If all else fails, contact a doctor. Mild antibiotics that are available only by prescription can help reduce acne. Keep in mind though, that the widespread overuse (taking antibiotics when you really don't need them or for something they don't treat) and misuse (not taking medication for the specified amount of time) of antibiotics has led to the development of multiple antibiotic resistant bacteria. That means that the antibiotics won't work for the things they used to (including your acne).

      Keep hair off of your face if at all possible. If you want to keep your bangs, then consider taking showers regularly or keeping your forehead clean with oil-dabbing cloths / clean tissues / etc.

    How can I get rid of hot spots on my Golden Retriever?
    My golden retriever has hot spots on his belly. Any suggestions on home remedies that work. Thanks.

    • ANSWER:
      I've found the Blue Power Ear Treatment recipe to work well on hot spots. http://www.sh-barcockers.com/earsolution.html

      He would probably also benefit from having the area shaved, so that the air can get at it.

      In my area, a lot of Goldens are prone to hot spots in the summer, so a lot of owners have them shaved down. If you decide to do this, I usually find that a #4 or 4F blade works best on most Goldens, taking them short enough to avoid the hot spots but leaving them a little bit of fur for protection from sun and insects. I also use a #7F on the ears and a #1 or #0 clipper comb on the tail. The result is that he looks like a yellow Labrador. If you give these instructions to a groomer they should know exactly what to do.

      Otherwise your best bet to avoid hot spots is to brush out the coat regularly, keeping the undercoat to a minimum and eliminating mats, so that the air can get to the skin and the coat dries more easily.

    • ANSWER:
      hello Ashley (:

      I am obsessed with my skin care and I have suffered from acne in the past, but now my skin is completely clear and I hope I can help you out. Get ready for a long answer :D please read for more info!:

      First off all, drink plenty of water. Water is the key to healthy skin and when you drink water your skin looks healthier and much more glowing. You must also eat lots of fresh fruits and veggies! Vegetables are important, as they contain lots of healthy nutrients and essential vitamins. These are the veggies are eat on a daily basis: in the morning, I eat a banana with my cereal - if you eat cereal, make sure it's full wheat and natural, no chocolate or lucky charms kind of stuff. For lunch, I eat a sandwhich and I add lots of onions. Onions are so healthy and they're amazing for your skin. If you eat onions, make sure you wash your hands after and eat something else after, because onions doesn't smell too good. Don't eat onions for supper or near the time you go to bed, because it will stop you from sleeping and gives you tummy aches. For dinner in my salad, I eat cucumbers, tomatoes, lettuce and carrots. Carrots are the best, because they contain some pigments that leave your skin healthier and much more glowly. The best vegetables for skin are: onions, carrots, brocolli - I eat them from time to time. However, the absolute best is avacado! If you like avacado, then that's excellent. I hate avacado, it makes me throw up, but avacado is the best!!! unlucky for me though, I have to find another solution

      Home remedies that I love and I do:

      Lemon juice - I always do this, especially in the summer when the sun is out - but you know in England, there's hardly any sun D: buy some lemons from the shop. Press them and get the fresh lemon juice - it doesn't matter if there are any bits or pips in them. Then just apply the lemon juice onto your face and scars. You can do this even if you don't have any scars, but just to help get rid of the acne. You apply it on your face and leave it for a few minutes. DON'T! add any water. Adding something to it, will kill off all the good bits, just leave it as it is. It will sting a bit, but it doesn't matter. If you want blonde highlights for your hair, sit in the sun for 30 minutes and apply the lemon juice all over your hair. Works like a treat and saves money to the hairdresser ;] so yeah, bascially apply it on your face

      Clay - I put clay on my face every week and it works wonders. The clay is not the clay you use for pottery, but the healthy clay used for your face. You can buy it any health food store and make sure it's all natural. Apply the clay all over your face, especially where you have spots and leave the clay until your face feels hard and once the clay has set remove the clay. Remove the clay slowly using warm wattered cotton buds and remove it all. Do this every week and only once a week. You should notice a difference in a few days.

      DON'T use anything like neutrogean or clean &' clear, because they are the worse for skin and spots. They make your skin worse, as they contain gross chemicals that your skin hates. Just use anything natural and chemical free - especially the moistureriser and you can buy it any health food store.

      If you wear any makeup, I advice to use either MAC or Chanel. Good luck xoxo

    • ANSWER:
      year ago I suffered from hair loss too and I started trying everything you can imagine to stop my hair loss.
      the things that really worked for me was:

      1) Vitamin A - an anti-oxidant which promotes healthy production of sebum in the scalp;

      2) Vitamin E stimulates circulation. Good blood circulation in the scalp is important in keeping hair follicles productive. The 'B' vitamins contribute to melanin, which gives hair its healthy color and also stimulates blood circulation;

      3) massage is also beneficial. Massage stimulates circulation. As already noted, good circulation in the scalp keeps hair follicles active. Experts suggest a few minutes of daily head massage by hand. Circulation through massage may be improved by using a few drops of lavender or bay essential oil in an almond or sesame oil base with massage;

      4) Try rubbing your scalp with garlic juice, Onion Juice or Ginger Juice(you can either of one out of three, Do not mix any of two or three);

      5) also you should use some herbal treatment.in that case Provillus is a good product that helps prevent hair loss and it is an FDA approved product. I think it is very important!

      It worked and still works for me!

      I do not know if any pharmacies carry Provillus but I do know that you should purchase it directly from the manufacturer and read more about the product here http://www.provillus.com/?aid=749165

    How to get rid of acne in a day or two home remedies plz!?
    I have bad acne mainly on my forehead, I was wondering dime quick home remedies to help get rid of it as soon as possible i know eating healthy and drinking water helps, but I need formulas plz

    • ANSWER:
      It's not a home remedy as such,
      But I strongly recommend 'Clearasil Ultra Rapid Action Treatment Cream'
      It's about £6 for a tube and it's an absoloute miracle worker, trust me.
      It says on the bottle, 'Visibly Clearer Skin In 3 Days'
      But I applied it to spots on my face one night and by morning most of the spots had gone and if not fully disappeared, shrunk.
      It says to apply morning and night but I applied it every night before I went to sleep and after about 4 days the spots had completely gone :)

      Hope this helped :) x

    What's a good home remedy for your skin?
    Ok I need a REALLY good home remedy for my skin and I say home remedy because store stuff is way too expensive hahah.

    • ANSWER:
      Genetic and Stress can affect hormones and can theoretically promote acne.
      Here are some home remedies that can help but do not mix them together.
      1) Tea Tree Oil- An essential oil is diluted and applied topically to acne lesions.
      2) Lemon oil or juice - Applied lemon juice or apple cider vinegar to face or you can drink it through using it in water a few drops a day. You can leave overnight don't expose yourself to sunlight. Will help with both acne, and scars as well.
      3) Mandarin oil
      4) Cedar wood – good for eczema
      5) Lavender
      6) Apple cider vinegar
      7) Bamboo extract or Sarna lotion – good for rosacea, psoriasis, eczema
      8) Bio Oil or BB cream for dark spots or scars
      9) Toothpaste is very effective for acne leave on face for about 20 to 30 minutes then wash.
      10) Zinc really works on acne
      11) 2% Erythromycin
      12) Benzoin Peroxide
      13) Neem oil- good for acne, psoriasis, eczema, skin ulcers (taken either orally or externally)
      14) Hydrogen Peroxide 3% - It can help to dry out acne by killing bacteria on the skin.Soak a cotton ball in hydrogen peroxide and apply it either to the acne breakouts on your face. You also may opt to apply hydrogen peroxide to your entire face to help prevent future breakouts. Allow the hydrogen peroxide to do its job -- wait until the bubbling stops in approximately a minute or two. Rinse your face with water. Apply an oil-free moisturizer to prevent skin from drying out.
      15) Vitamin B3- also known as niacin. It promotes healthy skin, can be utilized as an acne treatment.
      16) Retinoid- increase collagen production and plump fine lines, making it a good choice if you’re dealing with acne and wrinkles.
      17) Sulfur- dries up pimples and keeps sebum production in check, helping to prevent future blemishes. Sulfur has a distinct smell think rotten eggs.

      This is something I use every day and I got rid of my cystic acne and my eczema. I really recommend this.
      Neem oil: It is powerful antiviral and antibacterial properties, beneficial to those who suffer from various skin conditions like acne, psoriasis, eczema, skin ulcers, helps one treat hair related problems like dandruff and itchy scalp. Dental care products like toothpaste, mouth washes and rinses all use the neem oil's antiseptic properties to keep teeth health and gums free of infection. Other benefits also include its use in household items like mosquito repellents, disinfectants and personal hygiene products. If you like you can purchase at Lucy Vitamin or in health food stores. It is the same price as some of the acne medications, either prescribe or over-the-counter.

  50. QUESTION:
    How to minimize or get rid of acne?
    I have two weeks to get get minimize my acne and 4 weeks to hopefully get rid of it. I have a mixture of red spots and red boils. Are there any home remedies that actually work? And how to get minimize upcoming spots? I already wash my face every morning and night. Also I have oily skin if that helps. :P
    Don't say put makeup on, etc. I don't want to cover up, I want them gone!
    To add to this, how to get rid of spot scars or minimize them?

    Thank you and all answers appreciated!

    • ANSWER:
      I have the same issue as you do. Red spots and boils.

      For over the counter you could try:

      -Clear Pore Cleanser/Mask. It uses benzoyl peroxide just like Proactiv but is much cheaper (~.00) and can be used as either an on the spot treatment, a face mask as a preventative, or a cleanser/wash
      -Neutrogena Salicylic Acid Wash. It uses salicylic acid to clear out pores a sa preventative, lessen redness, and washes off makeup too which is great. (~.00)
      -Clearasil Salicylic Acid Pads. They work great for under makeup and is good for if you don't like gooey on the spot treatments. (~.00)

      For home remedies you could try:

      -Toothpaste. Just dap a little on the pimples and leave it on for a few hours or over night depedning on how sensitive your skin is. Be sure to only get it on the pimple and not on the skin around it or else your skill will get really dry.
      -Crushed strawberries. They have salicylic acid in them so it works similar to the over the counter products. You could try making a combination of strawberries and toothpaste (sounds gross i know) or you could try it combined with Manuka honey (as described below)
      -Manuka honey. It's sometimes hard to find in some stores but a health shop or a pharmacy for sure would have it if your grocery store doesn't. Just apply to your affected areas from 30 minutes up to a few hours but be sure to wash it all off once you are done.

      If you are interested in seeing adermatologistt, you should ask about the following topical products:

      -Duac Gel. It is a combination of benzoyl peroxide and the antibiotic, clindamyacin. (Did not really do wonders for me but it did for other poeple) With my insurance it only cost me for brand.
      -Epiduo Gel. It is a combination of benzoyl peroxide and the antibiotic, adapalene (often known as "differin") This really worked for me but I personally had a reaction to the differn which made me experience chest tightness similar to that of a small asthma attack. My friend was also on differin and she got asthma like symptoms too when she never has had them before. It only cost me for brand.
      -Erythromycin Gel. It is a gel made of the antibiotic, erythromycin. This so far has been doing good for me. No side affects luckily. It only cost me for brand. My pharmacy had a hard time finding it though because it's not made much anymore

      I hope this helped you out :)
      By the way, you can use some of them at the same time. For ecxample, I currently use the Erythromycin gel, Clear Pore cleanser/mask, and Neutrogena Salicylic Acid wash. When my I break out really bad though, I include the home remedies like the Manuka honey

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    What home remedy would be good for the redness from acne?
    Ok I am already using the home remedy for blackheads and acne using honey and cinnamon. Its been working great!

    But all of a sudden my face is starting to get redness around little acne spots and is getting a little dry. I was considering putting lemon juice in with my mixture as is, but now I'm not too sure.

    I have combination skin is that matters at all.

    What could I use that would soothe my skin?

    • ANSWER:
      I <3 Neutrogena and I use Clean & Clear cleansing pads (from the Avon magazine).

      First, start using the Neutrogena advanced solution set which you can find in any supermarket. Get the Neutrogena foundation or concealer for acne.

      Not only does it cover the blemishes smoothly, it gets rid of them!!!!! YAY!!! At least it worked for me.

      If you decide to use to use the Neutrogena, carry a makeup bag with it in it.

      Or if you are into home remedies (the get-rid-of-quick kind of stuff) here's what I can tell you:

      Trying to clear them up in one day is hard and can leave your skin inflamed for a while...

      HOWEVER, there are a few remedies that I have experimented with. My friends and family were happy to share some with me.

      1. Apply lemons or tomatoes to your face, cut them into fours, and rub along face. Go to sleep and the next day- your pimples should be visibly smaller.

      2. A mask of grated apple mixed with a little honey is an excellent remedy for pimples. Most facial masks can be applied to the skin for 15-20 minutes then washed off with warm water, followed by a cold rinse.

      3. Another overnight home remedy for zapping a zit is to put a dab of toothpaste on it to help dry it out. You may need to test this on a short-term basis to make sure it doesn't irritate your pimple. Calamine lotion will have the same drying effect. (THIS ONE WORKED FOR ME, MY FRIEND GIT A RED RASH HOWEVER).

      4. Grind some nutmeg with milk and apply on affected area. Pimples disappear like magic without leaving a mark.

      5. Make a paste of roasted & powdered pomgranate skin with fresh lime juice and apply over PIMPLES.

      6. Rubbing alcohol

      7. Mix corn flour with egg white and apply on your face. Let is dry completely for 1/2 hour. Dip your hands in warm water and massage your face and wash off. This when repeated regularly gives you a smooth skin.

      8. Honey

      9. Dilute some lemon juice with water and dab on pimples to kill germs, cool inflammation and improve blood circulation. Lemon is also good for removing scars. That means any pimples you popped in angst that left a scar will go away over time. Lemon contains acid so it's like having an acid peel thing going, but not. Your skin will be so clear you can set that makeup aside for special occasions.

      MOST OF THESE THINGS ARE EASY TO FIND- I didn't include things that are hard to find. I hope on of these works for you.

      Though if you are willing to wait, Neutrogena advanced solution has done wonders for me.

      Sorry for the length, GOOD LUCK! iHate pimples

    Home remedies or great products for getting rid of blackheads?
    I need a really good home remedy or cheap product(s), I have blackheads all over my face and I have a special tool to pop them but it isn't that effective and I have tried the neutragena wave and didn't work! I also have a very oily face and sometimes get pimples

    So does anyone have any good home remedies that works or products?

    • ANSWER:
      Home Remedies for getting rid of acne and other skin care remedies

      a hugely popular remedy for getting rid of acne is using a 100% natural soap called African Black Soap; loaded with Vitamin A &E; it reduces acne breakouts by reducing oiliness, kills the bacteria that causes acne; can also reduce the appearance of scarring.

      Remedy for oily skin: make a homemade mask by combining one egg white and a teaspoon of lemon juice. Apply mask and rinse with warm water after 20 minutes

      For softer skin, steam your face over boiling water (drape a towel over head to hold in steam); remove dead skin with a loofah, drink lots of water

      To rid blackheads, mix cornstarch with vinegar, plaster on the area for 15-30 minutes; wash off with washcloth and warm water.

      Put cold, cooked oatmeal on your face, it can help give you nicer skin (submitted by laura)

      Run out of shaving cream to shave your legs? Use hair conditioner. It makes legs nice and smooth too.

      Also try your favorite body wash

      To get rid of that fake tan from the tanning bottle that you may have messed up: 1/4 cup of lemon juice, 1/2 cup sugar, loofah and scrub. (You may have heard that on "The Wedding Planner.")

      To help skin glow, place hot towels on skin for 10 minutes, then splash face with cold water 10 times

      To help dry out your acne without drying out your face, put a thin layer of Phillips Milk of Magnesia over your face. It works great (submitted by visitor).

      rub cucumber peel (wet side up) on your face and leave on overnight to cure acne(submitted by visitor)

      (visitor recommendation) ~ For the smoothest skin ever... trust me I have psoriasis and it is nearly impossible to find a moisturizer that works... after a shower or bath spread vaseline over your entire body (or wherever you wish) , it's a very greasy feeling but be patient. let it soak into your skin for about an hour or more if u can handle it, while sitting on a towel. this works so well that you only need to do it once or twice a month.

  5. QUESTION:
    Who can tell me a good home remedy that will clear up sore throat?
    Salt in warm water Never worked for anyone in my family, nor my friends. I'm sure there is a better Home remedy. Can someone please tell me if you have a good one?

    • ANSWER:
      This question seems to be asked a lot lately!

      This remedy will work just about every time:

      Gargle with colloidal silver and then swallow. Make sure to do this several times a day and swallow at least 4 ounces per day and your sore throat should be better quickly and gone in a couple of days or so.
      Note: Do NOT mix with salt, and make sure that you are using a colloidal or ionic silver product that is no more than 20 PPM.

      Note: Don't believe the mainstream scare stories about colloidal silver. Properly made and administered colloidal silver has never turned anyone blue nor has it caused any harm. Such reports refer to improperly made homemade silver made with tap water and contaminated with salt.

      The only threat colloidal silver represents is to the huge profits of patented drugs that are usually less effective, far less safe and far more expensive. See:

      Colloidal Silver Has Mainstream Medicine "Singing the Blues"
      http://www.tbyil.com/colloidalsilverblue…

      Other suggestions:

      * Apple cider vinegar (ACV). Mix one teaspoon to 2 tablespoons in a glass of water or else mix it as strong as you can stand it. Gargle one mouthful every hour, swallowing afterward. Repeat twice each time. This treatment can cure a streptococcic sore throat in 24 hours. After using this remedy be sure to rinse your mouth with water to prevent the acid from eroding teeth enamel.

      * Combine one teaspoon of apple cider vinegar, one teaspoon of cayenne pepper and three tablespoons of clover honey in a glass of warm water. Gargle as often as necessary.

      * Echinacea tincture/extract. Most people know that echinacea can help you fight off a cold. But it also acts as a mild local anesthetic when taken in liquid extract form. Mix ½ teaspoon of the liquid extract with about 1/4 cup water, gargle, and swallow. Do this every hour for up to 48 hours or until the soreness disappears.

      * Combine the following ingredients in a saucepan:

      1/2 teaspoon alum
      1/4 cup brown sugar
      1 teaspoon sage
      3/8 cup vinegar
      1/8 cup water

      then bring the mixture to a boil. Remove from heat; strain and cool. Gargle every 30 minutes until the sore throat is relieved.

      * Sage tea and honey. Brew sage tea. Add a little honey. Strain out the leaves, and gargle often with the resulting liquid.

      * An old home remedy for sore throats is a tea made with lemon, apple cider vinegar, cayenne, and honey. It is made by adding one teaspoon of apple cider vinegar, a tiny pinch of cayenne pepper, the juice of 1/4 lemon, and one teaspoon of honey to a cup of hot water. Stir. Typically, up to four cups a day is suggested.

  6. QUESTION:
    What is a great home remedy for acne breakouts?
    Just a great home remedy for acne breakouts that get rid of them once and for all? Any tips? I just dont want to waste money on hopeless supplies that only get rid of acne for a limited time!

    • ANSWER:
      I need to dispel a myth for you: because acne is mostly caused by hormonal changes, even if you eliminate all the acne you have now you will always see recurring acne since the 'hormones' will keep working and will keep creating and re-creating acne. Most times such hormonal changes are necessary, for example during teen years, so there's not much one can do except for making sure you keep the situation 'at bay', by continuing with the remedies, every day, until your hormones re-balance themselves. Changing your diet will also help.

  7. QUESTION:
    what is the home remedy for getting rid of skin moles?
    home remedies for skin moles that is on my face?? i tried garlic,but they suck.

    • ANSWER:
      I personally use Castor oil and baking soda. Works great for me so far. Mos of my moles dropped off naturally after 10 days or so. Other alternatives like apple cider vinegar, pineapple juice, etc. You may check out the website below that talks about natural home remedies for skin mole removal.

  8. QUESTION:
    Do you face problems with your doctors and prefer our ancient home remedies which are more natural?
    Our ancient home remedies are believed to be very natural, side effect free, effective and healthy.
    Do you agree with this ??
    Do you feel that if some Home Remedy guide comes handy then you will first follow it rather than going to your doctor??

    • ANSWER:
      No they are not side effect free. Natural does not mean safe.

      And ancient does not mean effective. That's why we have modern medicine.

      Home remedies are risky - especially where proper medical care is needed. I would not consult a Home remedy "guide", rather I would go to proper medical sources - and remember that self diagnosis is not always a good idea.

  9. QUESTION:
    How do you kill insects on sunflowers without using any chemicals? Only home remedy?
    I have a patch of sunflowers and recently bugs have been eating them. I don't want to use chemicals to kill them because I fear that it might kill or harm the sunflowers.
    What home remedy can help?

    • ANSWER:
      It is extremely hard to answer this one without knowing what insects they are. The dish-soap and water trick will help if they are small insects (around the size of a gnat or small ant). I'm guessing that since a sunflower will grow quite rapidly, really small insects would not have much impact on them (unless there were a whole lot of them feeding) and they the insects you do have on them are of a larger size. If they are indeed larger insects (plant bugs? about the size of a dime and triangle shaped, or caterpillars) most "home remedy" solutions are likely doomed to failure. If your only concern with using chemicals is that you don't want to harm the sunflowers, then I can tell you with much confidence that 99.9% of insect chemicals will not effect the plants at all when used as directed. The first step is to find out what you think is eating your sunflowers. You might try asking at a local nursery or finding a university extension office nearby or simply finding it out for yourself on the internet.

  10. QUESTION:
    My hair are getting thin. Is there any home remedy that can prevent hair thinning and control hair fall?
    I am suffering from hair thinning and hair fall problem. I have lost 30% of hair over the forehead part. Is there any home remedy that could help me from this problem?

    • ANSWER:
      Hi Gaurav A,

      Sorry to hear about your hair loss problem, but don't worry there are lots of homemade and herbal treatments that can help you.

      Here are some hair loss home remedies:

      1. Massage hair with olive hair and leave over night. Wash off the next day as usual. Olive oil works as a hair tonic. It is also referred to as liquid gold for the hair. Olive oil is rich in essential fatty acids which keep the hair cuticles moisturized.

      2. Boil a handful of henna leaves in mustard oil (in a ratio of 4 tablespoons to one cup). Filter and store in a sterilized glass bottle. Massage this herbal oil before a head bath every time. If possible leave it over night or at least for 30 minutes before washing your hair. This is very effective in treating hair loss.

      3. Massage Bhongra juiceinto your scalp to reduce hair loss.

      4. Oil of Sagvan seeds too can be used for head massage to stop hair fall.

      5. Mix equal amount of almond oil and warm castor oil for head massage at least once a week.

      Hope these help, take care
      Jenn

  11. QUESTION:
    Somebody please help me with a home remedy to get rid of zits overnight?
    I am almost on my period so my face is breaking out and I have this event that I am going to tomorrow and my boyfriendis going to be there. I am freaking out. I need a home remedy something that I already have that can cure zits overnight. Please help me, Justine.

    • ANSWER:
      • Ice is often used as a quick remedy to get rid of Pimple overnight. You just need to wrap an ice cube (or crushed ice) in a piece of cloth and apply it on your Pimple for about 20-30 seconds.

      Repeat this procedure a few times in a day to reduce the swelling of your Zits considerably as it helps to freeze the pores and removes dirt and oil easily. If you are looking for solutions on how to get rid of a red Pimple fast then this ice remedy will surely give the best results.

      • Manuka honey and tea tree oil also serve as excellent home remedies to get rid of Pimples overnight Apply either of these natural cures after washing the face. This treatment, however, works best in case of minor Pimples.

      • Using any white toothpaste (not gel) on the Zits is quite a popular home treatment for this problem nowadays. For this, you simply have to apply some toothpaste on the Pimples before bed time and let it remain on the face over night. Wash your face the next morning and you will find a great deal of improvement in your Pimples. The toothpaste should remain on the Zits for at least half an hour.

      Wondering how does Colgate toothpaste get rid of Pimples? This mint based toothpaste usually dries out Pimples and hence heals them quickly. Another tip as to how to get rid of a red Pimple overnight would be to use the ice remedy (mentioned earlier) after following this toothpaste remedy. Do not use this remedy in case your skin is sensitive as it may cause a burning sensation.

      • If you are wondering how to get rid of a Pimple on your nose or forehead then lemon juice can be a great help for you. In fact, applying lemon juice on the affected area is one of the simplest ways of curing Pimples.

      Just apply some fresh lemon juice on your Pimple before going to bed and let it dry overnight. Your Zits and Pimples would surely become much less noticeable or even disappear completely the next day.

      • Consider using a honey and cinnamon face mask to mask your Pimples. Prepare this face mask by mixing some honey and cinnamon powder to form a sticky paste.

      Then, apply this mixture on the face overnight and wash it off in the morning. However, this pleasant smelling mixture takes might take an unpleasant amount of time to treat Acne.

      How to get rid of a Zit overnight using over-the-counter medicines?

      • Acne products that contain benzyl peroxide and salicylic are highly recommended for curing this Acne and Zits. Read the instructions carefully before going ahead with these products. Do not over apply these products and follow the directions cautiously. Clearasil and Noxzema are quite popular in this regard.

      • If acne products fail to give desired results and you are still intent on finding out how to get rid of Acne overnight then you can also try sulfur masks. Try not to leave a sulfur mask on your face overnight unless specifically mentioned.

      Other Suggestions

      Make sure you wash your face before applying these Acne and Pimple remedies. Although, do not become obsessed with face cleaning activity as washing the face too frequently can make the skin excessively dry.

      In fact, learn to wash your face gently before learning how to get rid of pimples in a day. Just clean the skin two to three times in a day with a mild soap or a specialized Acne cleaner. After washing gently pat dry the skin instead of rubbing it vigorously.

      In addition, do not squeeze or pop your Zits as it will only make the condition worse. As different individuals have different types of skin, the effectiveness of these remedies also varies from one individual to another.

      Moreover, if you are seriously looking for an effective cure to get rid of Acne then you also need to follow a more holistic approach, especially in case of severe Acne breakouts.

      Therefore these steps on getting rid of Pimples and Zits fast should also be accompanied by certain dietary measures like including more vitamin A and vitamin C rich foods in the diet, drinking adequate amount of water, avoiding highly sugary foods, etc.

  12. QUESTION:
    I'm looking for a home remedy for getting rid of fleas that actually works. Got one?
    Adopted a dog and she wasn't taken care of properly so unfortunately I also adopted her fleas which she has passed on to my other dog and two cats. I'm looking for a home remedy that is an all natural alternative to something like Frontline.

    • ANSWER:
      oh man, that sucks!! I'm sorry. I dont have any natural home remedies. Not that I havent tried any, I just didnt find one that really worked. I personally hate frontline. My small dog had a very bad reaction to it. My yorkie is currently on Revolution.

      For fleas: someone once told me that I had to treat it like a war. And let me tell you, it is!! If the fleas have infected your home, carpet, bedding, furnature, you have a much bigger problem on your hands. We got fleas from our neighbor's dogs and my dog brought them in the house. We had to get our house professionally sprayed a few times, our yard too. But in addition to that, I found a carpet powder at Wal-Mart and powdered and vacuumed the whole house at least every two days. Wash EVERYTHING that your dogs and cats have been around.

      And go to your vet and get a pill called CapStar. I think you can even use it on cats, but be sure to ask. This magic little pill saved my life!! It kills the fleas on your animals in a matter of minutes and works all day. Plus you can give it daily. Some vets sell it for less than others, so be sure to shop around.

      Good luck!!

  16. QUESTION:
    looking for a home remedy for dog ear infection?
    can anybody suggest a cheap home remedy for a dogs ear infection? I have a cocker spaniel and she has some kind of ear infection but I am out of work so I am trying to avoid taking her to the expenisive vet.
    Has anybody had any luck with any home remedies for this? I have tried putting the fluids from a couple of vit. E capsules in her ear but I am not sure if it has worked or not...I have only just did this yesterday though.
    Any thoughts on this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much in advance.

    • ANSWER:
      There is NO home remedy - you need to get your dog to the vet, have the ear infection identified -- could be a yeast infection, could be ear mites.

      The vet will then give you the proper treatment for the problem.

      This is not expensive and absolutely necessary. Ear infections don't go away with home remedies, you've just made it worse with the E capsule.
      This isn't an option, it is absolutely necessary to get your dog treated by a vet - ear infections are painful, itch like mad, and can cause deafness and worse for your dog.

      Get that dog to the vet -- doesn't cost that much for the infection to be identified and the right medication given.

      Home Remedy Treatments for Shingles

      While it's imperative that you see your doctor if you suspect you have shingles, you may also want to try some of the following home remedies to ease the pain.

      Cool the pain. Cold packs can help relieve the pain from hot, blistered skin. Gently place a cold cloth on the blisters or wrap a towel around the affected area and pour ice water on it. Apply for 20 minutes, then leave off for 20 minutes, and repeat until the pain decreases. You can also try a cold milk compress in the same manner.

      Stay in bed. Rest will help your body's defenses come to your rescue.

      Take an anti-inflammatory drug. Ibuprofen helps reduce inflammation and is the first line of defense in fighting the pain. Aspirin may be another option. If you are allergic to ibuprofen and aspirin, take over-the-counter (OTC) acetaminophen (it can help relieve pain, although it doesn't fight inflammation). If these don't help, ask your doctor to prescribe something for the pain. Codeine or other mild narcotics can help reduce the pain in the early phase of shingles. For a list of precautions to take when using over-the-counter analgesics, click here.

      Rub on relief. Your doctor may recommend or prescribe a topical local anesthetic cream to be used on your blistered skin. Be leery of OTC topical products that contain diphenhydramine (Benadryl) or any ingredient ending in -caine, however; these can cause an allergic reaction and thus may worsen the situation.

      Don't pop the blisters. The temptation may be unbearable, but you will only prolong healing time and open the door to scarring and secondary infection.

      Don't spread them. Although it won't bring relief to you, stay away from people who are at risk: Avoid people with any sort of immune problem, such as transplant or cancer patients and children who haven't yet been exposed to chicken pox.

      Consider a hot-pepper fix. If the blisters have healed, but the pain persists, what options do you have? Apply hot peppers? Not exactly.
      But applying an OTC cream (such as Zostrix) that contains capsaicin,
      which is derived from hot peppers, may help. However, many doctors don't recommend capsaicin therapy since it may actually worsen pain for the first two or three days. If you're really suffering, ask your doctor for advice on trying this remedy.

      Try to relax. For lingering discomfort from shingles (or from any type of chronic pain, really), consider learning self-hypnosis, imagery, or meditation or engaging in some other activity that can help you relax. Coping with pain is stressful, and stress, in turn, may increase pain perception. Finding a reliable home remedy to calm yourself certainly won't hurt you, and it may help you deal more effectively with the pain.

      Try TENS. You may be able to relieve the symptoms of shingles with a TENS (which stands for Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) device. In theory, TENS blocks pain signals from reaching the brain with a weak electrical current (which is painless, though you will feel a tingling sensation). You can purchase a TENS unit to use at home for around 0. Your doctor's office or local hospital may be able to give you information on where to purchase one of these.

      Consider an antidepressant. Some studies have shown that low doses of antidepressant medications help relieve shingles-related pain, even in patients who are not suffering from depression. How? Some antidepressants block the removal of a neurotransmitter called serotonin. Extra amounts of circulating serotonin may keep pain signals from reaching the brain. Talk it over with your doctor to determine if an antidepressant might help you cope with continuing pain following a shingles outbreak.

      From relaxation techniques to antidepressants, the home treatment options to ease the pain of shingles are varied. The good news is one of the home remedies just might work!

      i hope some of this helps and that it goes away soon :)

      Drinking milk can help sometimes. Also, stay away from spicy foods, alcohol or carbonated beverages. Don't lie down either. Stay sitting up and try to wear loose-fitting clothes. If you want to take an at home painkiller, try something with acetaminophen instead of aspirin or ibuprofen. Those can make it worse. Hope this helps! Try not to eat too much before bedtime, too.

  24. QUESTION:
    Is there a home remedy for athletes foot?
    I think my daughter has athletes foot , can somone tell me a home remedy I can use to get rid of it?

    • ANSWER:
      Cayenne pepper in the socks. I've used it and it works quicker than the over the counter medications that are available. If there is cracking of the skin it will burn.

      I have a friend who swears by Borax rubbed on wet feet, and says that they stop itching instantly.

      Tea tree oil diluted in a carrier oil can relieve the itching and burning while providing anti fungal action.

      Here is a link to many other home remedies for athlete's foot.
      http://www.mothernature.com/Library/bookshelf/Books/41/15.cfm

      You can add salt to any of these remedies for it's moisture absorbing properties. Fungus needs moisture to grow and the salt will retain all the available moisture. Cornstartch could also be used, but will become pasty.

      Living in the south, I just use cayenne pepper for a ton of stuff.

  25. QUESTION:
    What is a good home remedy for acne scars?
    What is a good home remedy for acne scars? Used to have very good skin but lately developed "adult acne" and the scars are dark and awful.

    • ANSWER:
      If your scars are dark red, they are called macules. These will fade over time; however, you can do things to help fade them. Most importantly, you want to keep the acne from coming back because it will only add to your scarring. I've had this same problem...here's what I do:

      First, I would again cleanse with a gentle cleanser that your skin likes. Don't use anything that has fragrance or alcohol in it. This will only irritate your skin causing you to break out more. I would suggest to use a simple cleanser like a glycerin based cleanser. And, you only need to cleanse your face no more than 2 times a day; your body, no more than once per day. It's not necessary to constantly wash your skin...this will strip away your natural oils tricking your body that it needs to produce more oil, again...causing more acne and then acne scars.

      Next, I would exfoliate with a gentle exfoliator and do it regularly...This depends on your skin type. Exfoliating your skin will help remove dead skin cells that get trapped because of too much sebum (oil) on your skin - causing pores to get clogged...thus forming acne. Most people think that by scrubbing their skin, they will get rid of their blemishes but you could be doing too much. Here's what I recommend:
      With oily skin, you should exfoliate 3-5 per week. If you have dry or sensitive skin, only once per week; Normal skin would be everyday.

      One last thing...benzoyl peroxide: this can be very effective for acne and it is relatively inexpensive (don't confuse this with hydrogen peroxide). Just know that in order to get good results (for most people) is to use it on a consistent basis. Usually a 2.5% concentration works for most people if you use it daily. If you use it and feel you need something stronger, work your way up to a 5% solution...normally people don't need the 10% concentrations - these really are for people that have really oily skin. Note that if you use a cleanser and it already has BP in it, don't also use a topical cream that has BP in it. Pick a concentration that works for you and then only use that - don't double or triple up as this will only irritate and dry out your skin, causing redness and possibly more acne.

      Then, pay attention to your body and what your skin is telling you. Drinking a lot of water really does help. But, for me, I also notice that I will break out if I eat / drink too much dairy. I love milk, cheese, etc., but my skin doesn't...so I only eat it now and then. So, if you notice something that triggers your acne breakouts, cut down and see if that makes any difference for you.

      I hope that your scars fade - they are very embarrassing so I know what you're talking about. The above are fairly simple and inexpensive suggestions...I hope they help you.

      Good luck.

  26. QUESTION:
    What home remedy is there for someone who swallows a button battery?
    My lil' sis swallowed a button battery and I want to know if there is a home remedy for getting it out of her and if possibly there is a herbal remedy.

    THANK YOU !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • ANSWER:
      No there is no remedy. Call ER and ask them if you need to do anything because of her swallowing the battery. They will tell you if you need to be worried or not..
      If anyone swallows a battery, this is what you should do:

      1) Call the 24-hour National Button Battery Ingestion Hotline at 202-625-3333 IMMEDIATELY (TDD 202-362-8563). Feel free to call collect. Your physician or emergency room may also call. We are on duty 24-hours a day, 7 days a week.
      2) If available, provide the battery identification number (from the package or from a matching battery).
      3) An x-ray must be obtained immediately to be sure that the battery has gone through the esophagus into the stomach. Do not wait for symptoms to develop before getting an x-ray. If the battery remains in the esophagus, it must be removed IMMEDIATELY. CAUTION: Batteries lodged in the esophagus can cause severe burns in JUST 2 HOURS!! Battery removal is done with an endoscope; surgery is rarely, if ever, indicated. Do NOT give ipecac.
      4) If a battery has moved beyond the esophagus, it can be expected to pass by itself. Passage may take many days, or even months. Removal is NOT indicated if the battery has passed beyond the esophagus and the patient is asymptomatic. Once you are sure the battery is not in the esophagus, the patient can be sent home to wait for the battery to pass. Watch for fever, abdominal pain, vomiting or blood in the stools. Report these symptoms immediately to your physician and to the Battery Hotline (202-625-3333).
      5) Watch the stools until the battery has passed. Clean the battery, tape it to a card or wrap it carefully, and mail it to:
      National Capital Poison Center
      3201 New Mexico Ave, Suite 310
      Washington, DC 20016
      Be sure to include your name, address and telephone number. To learn more about battery ingestions, a toxicologist analyzes each battery and correlates the severity of the patient’s clinical effects with the degree of corrosion noted on the battery.

    What home remedy is good for a cat's dry skin?
    Our cat has red patches on his skin. It looks like a rash and he scratches alot. What is a good home remedy that I can use for this problem?

    • ANSWER:
      Sounds like you cat has an allergy problem that needs to be addressed by your vet. Many things can cause allergies and you need to know what is going on before you try to treat him at home. If it was just dry skin or a dull coat I would say add a can of canned kitty food to his diet a couple times a week it has more oils and stuff for the skin than dry foods and won't cause any other issues you don't want to deal with. But seriously talk to your vet. He/she can give you a special spray to use on him to relieve the itching and assist you in treating the actual cause.

      Here are some home remedies that can help but do not mix them together.
      1) Tea Tree Oil- An essential oil is diluted and applied topically to acne lesions.
      2) Lemon oil or juice - Applied lemon juice or apple cider vinegar to face or you can drink it through using it in water a few drops a day. You can leave overnight don't expose yourself to sunlight. Will help with both acne, and scars as well.
      3) Mandarin oil
      4) Cedar wood – good for eczema
      5) Lavender
      6) Apple cider vinegar
      7) Bamboo extract or Sarna lotion – good for rosacea, psoriasis, eczema
      8) Bio Oil or BB cream for dark spots or scars
      9) Toothpaste is very effective for acne leave on face for about 20 to 30 minutes then wash.
      10) Zinc really works on acne
      11) 2% Erythromycin
      12) Benzoin Peroxide
      13) Neem oil- good for acne, psoriasis, eczema, skin ulcers (taken either orally or externally)
      14) Hydrogen Peroxide 3% - It can help to dry out acne by killing bacteria on the skin.Soak a cotton ball in hydrogen peroxide and apply it either to the acne breakouts on your face. You also may opt to apply hydrogen peroxide to your entire face to help prevent future breakouts. Allow the hydrogen peroxide to do its job -- wait until the bubbling stops in approximately a minute or two. Rinse your face with water. Apply an oil-free moisturizer to prevent skin from drying out.
      15) Vitamin B3- also known as niacin. It promotes healthy skin, can be utilized as an acne treatment.
      16) Retinoid- increase collagen production and plump fine lines, making it a good choice if you’re dealing with acne and wrinkles.
      17) Sulfur- dries up pimples and keeps sebum production in check, helping to prevent future blemishes. Sulfur has a distinct smell think rotten eggs.

      This is something I use every day and I got rid of my cystic acne and my eczema. I really recommend this.
      Neem oil: It is powerful antiviral and antibacterial properties, beneficial to those who suffer from various skin conditions like acne, psoriasis, eczema, skin ulcers, helps one treat hair related problems like dandruff and itchy scalp. Dental care products like toothpaste, mouth washes and rinses all use the neem oil's antiseptic properties to keep teeth health and gums free of infection. Other benefits also include its use in household items like mosquito repellents, disinfectants and personal hygiene products. If you like you can purchase at Lucy Vitamin or in health food stores. It is the same price as some of the acne medications, either prescribe or over-the-counter.

    I have had problems my whole life with snoring, and was wondering if anyone had suggestions for the best stop snoring home remedy. It's really been bothering me recently, and I want it to stop already! Any help would be appreciated.

    • ANSWER:
      You really should see your doctor and be tested for sleep apnea or nasal or throat polyps, or sinus troubles.

      Some things to try at home:
      1. the nasal strips (Breathe Right is a brand name). Those can help with snoring and for nasal congestion.
      2. Don't sleep on your back. My husband snores, but i've noticed it doesn't happen if he is sleeping on his side. Prop with pillows to keep yourself from rolling onto your back.
      3. Raise the head of your bed up on blocks.
      4. Lose weight. If you have a thick neck, that will partially block your airway and cause snoring.
      5. Get more rest. My hubby tends to snore when he is more tired than usual.
      6. Make sure you are drinking plenty of fluids. At night mucous membranes dry out and could lead to snoring.

      And again, see your doctor to be checked.

Does anyone know a simple home remedy to make that will help my acne, and maybe even help my dry skin? Also if you know any good products for acne that works well let me know. Thanks.

    • ANSWER:
      Hi,

      Skin experts and practitioners recommend several natural acne treatments:

      http://www.acnepilot.com/acne-medications/home-and-over-the-counter-acne-medications.php

      1. Avoid touching your face. Stop putting your hands by your face! I am often guilty of this resting my hand on the side of my head while reading. Also rubbing or bracing your chin is another common problem when thinking. Avoid rubbing, touching, or itching your skin with your hands. Your hands contain a lot of bacteria that can cause acne flare-ups. It is probably one of the most difficult things to avoid since much of the hand to face contact throughout the day we are unconscious of. Make it a habit to avoid hand contact and be conscious of it during the day to avoid bacteria.

      2. Wash your face twice a day (thrice at most) with gentle and unperfumed cleanser. Avoid using soaps as they contain harsh chemicals and ingredients that can damage your skin.

      3. Avoid the temptation to pick, prick and squeeze your acne. This will send the infection deeper into the skin and can cause severe scarring.
      For mild to moderate acne, you can use over- the- counter topical ointments, solutions, lotions or gels that contain benzoyl peroxide, salicylic acid or azelaic acid as an alternative to benzoyl peroxide. Benzoyl peroxide is best at killing P. acnes and may reduce oil production. Resorcinol, salicylic acid, and sulfur help break down blackheads and whiteheads. Salicylic acid also helps cut down the shedding of cells lining the follicles of the oil glands.

      4. Tea tree oil is a natural antibiotic and antibacterial agent and has a drying effect on the skin. It keeps the P. Acnes bacteria at bay along with decreasing facial oiliness, which makes this oil a worthwhile investment.

      5. Topical antibiotic solutions and lotions can also be applied.

      6. Sulfur helps to heal existing blemishes by unblocking pores.

      7. Alpha or Beta Hydroxy Acids (AHA or BHA) works by keeping the skin exfoliated. Glycolic acid, the most well-known of the bunch is a useful adjuvant therapy for mild acne. Mandelic acid, a lesser known one, but one that combines the keratolytic properties of glycolic acid with natural antibacterial properties that help reduce the presence of P. acnes, may be considered a more effective alpha hydroxy acid in treating acne lesions. It is also much less irritating than glycolic acid, a factor that may be very important to those with sensitive skin who are unable to use other agents such as Retin-A, benzoyl peroxide, sulfur, or salicylic acid. It is effective in treating mild cases of acne on its own, and can be used successfully with other therapies on moderate acne.

  41. QUESTION:
    Is there a home remedy for a urinary tract infection?
    My three-year-old has been complaining today that her back and side hurt. I thought she pulled a muscle or something so we iced it. Before she went to bed, she told me that it hurts when she goes pee pee. I checked and it was red. Are there any home remedies for a UTI (I'm assuming that's what it is) or do I absolutely need to take her to the pediatrician for antibiotics tomorrow morning?

    I heard cranberry juice is good at preventing UTI's but not necessarily treating them. Any other suggestions?

    • ANSWER:
      There is no at-home remedy for urinary tract infections and if left untreated it can lead to a kidney infection which is very serious. When my daughter was 2 she woke from her nap blazing hot. Her fever was 105 F. I rushed her to the doctor who immediately started her on antibiotics. She did have a kidney infection. If your child's urine is red it is in all probability, blood. Get her to the doctor immediately or the ER. There is no reason for this child to be in pain and at risk for a kidney infection.

    • ANSWER:
      BLACKHEADS REMOVAL

      A nasty beauty enemy, but here's a remedy:

      Combine 1/4 cup boiling water with one teaspoon of Epsom salt and three drops of iodine. Let mixture cool until it's comfortable to the touch.

      This will allow them to loosen so they can be easily squeezed with a gauze pad.

  43. QUESTION:
    Home remedy for a dog with an ear infection?
    I have a rat terrier mix and she is already on 2 types of medication for seizures but she has an ear infection. I was wondering if there is a safe home remedy cure because the vet is expensive and it doesn't help when they try to rip you off. Any safe remedies?

    Thank you

    • ANSWER:
      Depends on the type of ear infection.
      If it is a yeast infection then you can use an over the counter "feminine" yeast infection product. Just a small amount (like a pea size) and rub it into ears, also clean out the ear gunk (will be brownish/reddish and SMELLY) with q-tips.

      If it is just a basic ear infection you can squirt a little diluted vinegar (50/50 vinegar to water) into the ear and then clean it out with q-tips.

      If it's ear mites then check at your local pet store or grocery store and there should be an over the counter medication that's about .

      I would also suggest calling and asking the vet what at home remedies they would recommend, sometimes they can help and will understand the financial strain.

      GOOD LUCK!!!

      This has more on the vinegar remedy...http://www.seefido.com/online-dog-vet/html/ear_infections.htm

      ----edit-----

      Looking for a safe less expensive alternative to help your pet does not mean you love them any less. Also, just because you could 'afford' them in the beginning doesn't mean you always will be able to, sh*t happens, there is no shame in finding an alternative it does not make you any less of a responsible dog owner.

  47. QUESTION:
    Home remedy to get rid of crickets?
    Is there any home remedies to get rid of crickets?

    • ANSWER:
      What would summer be without the sound of chirping crickets? When the little beasts get into your house, however, they are likely to chow down on anything from your wallpaper glue to your cashmere sweater, so keeping them outside and away from your house is the best line of defense.

      Steps:
      1. Modify your outdoor lighting. Instead of bright lights that attract insects, change to low-level yellow "bug" lights.

      2. Seal any cracks in your house that allow penetration from the exterior, paying close attention to areas around doors and windows and openings such as dryer vents. Place screens or other barriers over any openings that you cannot seal.

      3. Keep low-growing vegetation at least 12 inches away from the walls of your house. Crickets naturally congregate in moist, thick foliage, then find ways to migrate into the house.

      4. Purchase a cricket bait at a home and garden store. Sprinkle it around the outside of your house as directed. You can use some cricket baits indoors, but be sure to read labels carefully before applying.

      5. Use sticky traps to capture crickets without toxic chemicals. Crickets caught in this manner can be destroyed or flushed down the toilet.

      6. Vacuum up crickets you see in the house. Suck up as many as possible, then kill or discard them.

      7. Check the Internet for suggestions on types of cricket-control chemicals that you can sprinkle or spray around your home. Be sure to read all labels carefully before using.

      8. Call a pest control company if you are unable to control a cricket infestation yourself.

      If you have kids in the neighborhood who own lizards, snakes or other animals that eat crickets, consider pouring vacuumed-up crickets into a jar and passing them along to the lizard owner.

      There are several varieties of crickets in the United States. The most common (and most apt to get into your house) are the field cricket, the house cricket and the camel cricket.

      Most species of crickets require a moist environment, so lowering the humidity in your home or removing standing water, algae or mold will also help discourage crickets.

  49. QUESTION:
    What is a good home remedy to use on my guinea pig for mites?
    My male guinea pig has mites and I don't have money so is there any home remedies out there for a way to get rid of mites please help

    • ANSWER:
      There are no home remedies which work. You must get some revolution or ivermectin (from the vet) or your pig will really suffer. Mites really itch and the scratching can cause open bleeding sores which can become infected and cause your pig to get a systemic bacterial infection and die so it isn't just a matter of comfort.

      Trying to buy cheap sprays from the pet shop is throwing away money. While they may knock down the infestation for a while, it will keep coming back so you might as well do it right the first time. Most vets will work with you on a payment plan if you can't afford the whole bill at once,.

(besides chicken noodle soup.)

    • ANSWER:
      3-6000mg of vitamin C over the course of a day with a B-100 (complex). You need to give your body the fuel to fight. Treatment for the throat, and cough is to late. It is like being in a war, and bandaging the wounded, when you could have given them weapons (vitamin C). Take the C 1000mg every hour until bed, with a B-complex. In the morning take 2000mg of C prior to the party, with another B-complex. I promise you will feel better. Lots of water, and juice. Avoid, sugar, and caffeine.

  2. QUESTION:
    Does any one know any home remidies for a sinus infection?
    I have influenza C. It came with a nasty sinus infection. I have the perscription from the doctor, but does anyone know some home remidies for it?

    • ANSWER:
      Sinus infections can also be treated by some home remedies. A lot of relief can be obtained by inhaling steam from a vaporizer or a bowl of hot water. Applying a hot or a cold compress over the inflamed area would also provide relief. A decoction of mustard seed powder and water, instilled in the nostrils; eating jalapeno peppers; drinking juice of ripe grapes; applying a paste of cinnamon and water on the forehead; applying paste of ginger and water/milk on the forehead; applying paste of basil leaves, cloves, and dried ginger on the forehead; inhaling steam of eucalyptus oil; and drinking warm tea are all found to be effective in providing some relief. Drinking a lot of water and other fluids would also help. A great deal of rest is also required. However, it is better to consult a specialist if the infection persist because antibiodics are very helpful in eliminating the infection.

    I have a clogged ear from a cold, are there any good home remidies that could unclog it. I have been reading other posts like this but i dont want to use any of the hydrogen poroxide crud. I also read somewhere about using vinergar but i dont know if that is safe.

    Any Ideas? Please use good remedies that work. :)

    • ANSWER:

      Whatever you do, do not try to unclog your ear, it will progress back to normal naturally with plenty of hot lemon, and if you can't stand waiting for it to heal, then see a doctor, who may or may not have an answer.
      Steam and a towel over your head may work, and is quite harmless....

  6. QUESTION:
    I have a cold and I always wonder, Where does mucus come from when having a runny nose?
    I have a cold and Where does the mucus come from when having a runny nose? And...I need a faster cure for olds. I tried home remidies but they are slow. (no docs plzz)

    NO STUPID ANSWERS
    NO COMMUNITY VOTING. ONCE AGAIN NO COMMUNITY VOTING!

    • ANSWER:
      Mucus is made by tiny glands in your sinus and nasal cavities. It is 95% water, but also includes proteins (that give it elasticity), fats, carbohydrates and salt. The healthy human nose makes more than a pint of mucus a day, which forms a blanket over the delicate tissue that lines the nose. Little hairs called cilia beat along the nasal passages to move the mucus around, and it drains down the back of the throat, where it is unknowingly swallowed.

      Despite its tendency to become annoying at times, especially when you get a cold, mucus does a lot of good things for you. It keeps germs, dirt, pollen and bacteria from getting into your lungs by trapping them in your nose

  9. QUESTION:
    How to get rid of a cold sore fast!?
    It's that time of year again :( how can I get rid of a cold sore fast? Medicine? Home remidies? Anything? And how long will it take?
    Does toothpaste and salt work? What does it do? How long would it take to clear?

    • ANSWER:
      Use zovirax cream or Compeed's clear patches. The sooner you start the treatment the better.

      Cold sores are caused from oral Herpes aka Herpes simplex 1. It's a virus with no cure but only treatments that help a bit with the symptoms. So you can't make it go away fast. Herpes needs to make its cycle in order to go away.

      Do not scratch it, do not pick it and do not try to remove the top layer even if half of the scab is not attached to the skin because if you do it can leave a permanent mark/scar on the lips.

      I use Compeed's clear patches for cold sores because they are almost invisible and they help to reduce the size of the sore and also reduce the burning and itchy feeling. They also help it not to spread.

      It will take time until it's completely gone. Be patient you don't need a spot there for ever.

      You can also use alcohol around the area to stop it from spreading. If you touch it will your fingers, go wash your hands thoroughly.

      Avoid kissing and oral sex until it's completely healed.

      Gluck

  10. QUESTION:
    Is there any real way to make your hair grow out faster?
    I've seen all kinds of people try home remidies, but do they actually work? Does anyone know a way to make hair grow out faster that actually works? I want to grow out all my hair dye.

    • ANSWER:
      Well hair grow half an inch each month on its own. But what I would suggest it try using Mane N' Tail Horse Shampoo and Conditioner. I use it all the timeand it does aid in growing your hair faster. I'd
      say massage it into your scalp so it can get to your roots well this increases the blood flow helping
      it grow faster. When shampooing and conditioning you should use cold or luke warm water on your hair so it won't damage it. Even hot water hurts your hair.You can find it at walmart in the pet section.
      You should drink plenty of water to help condition your hair.

      Eating Coconut oil also has benifits its not only good for adding nutrients to the hair, but its also
      good for weight loss and has many more benifits.
      And don't forget about exercising, as much as I hate it, it actually helps by increasing the blood flow
      and stimulating the hair to grow faster.

      Hope I helped!

  11. QUESTION:
    How can i get rid of a itchy,dry and oil scalp?
    any home remidies?
    head and shoulders actually made my hair worse!?=/

    • ANSWER:
      if you use to much hot water it will make your scalp itchy and flaky.
      Usage of wrong hair care products is the foremost reason for drying scalp. So, the best way to get rid of the dryness would be to change the products. Get a mild shampoo or conditioner. A moisturizing shampoo would also be a good option to explore.
      Some people indulge in regular shampooing. If you are one among those, it is best advisable to cut down your frequency of shampooing. Too much of shampooing strips the scalp of natural oils, thereby causing dryness and itchiness.
      At the time of washing your hair, make sure you use lukewarm water. Cold water strips the natural oils from the scalp that help keep it from drying out.
      Dehydration is one of the leading causes for dryness and itchiness. Thus, it is best advisable to drink 8 oz. glasses of water every day.
      Rising stress levels can also lead to the problem of dryness and itchiness. So, the best bet would be to intake vitamin E and B supplements. These would help reduce the production of stress hormones, thereby lessening the problem.
      Rosemary has been found beneficial in treating dry itchy scalp. You can consume the herb by adding it in the food you prepare. For those who are not too fond of its taste, applying rosemary oil on the scalp would be a next best thing. Mix it with a little bit of olive oil before applying to the scalp. Leave the oil overnight and wash your hair the next morning. The dryness and the itching would surely be gone.
      Another good way to deal with dry itchy scalp would be by using vinegar. After rinsing your hair with a mild shampoo, wash it with a water and vinegar mixture. To prepare this mixture you need to mix 1 cup of vinegar in 3 cups of cool water.
      Massaging your scalp with tea tree oil has been found effective in getting rid of dryness and itchiness. All you need to do is apply the tea tree oil in the scalp and leave it for 15 minutes before rinsing your hair.
      Having a balanced diet is crucial to maintain the healthy being of your scalp. Do not binge on food containing animal fat or unsaturated vegetable oils. Chocolates, nuts, and foods containing iodized salt should also be avoided. A diet including green leafy vegetables, fish and chicken would be a perfect one.

  12. QUESTION:
    How do i bring colour back to a faded sweater?
    I have a tna sweater that is purple, black, white, green and light blue.
    is there any way of doing any home remidy that will bring the colour back?
    or any type of laundry detergent that has worked?

    • ANSWER:
      Sorry, but you can "bring color" back, except by dying the item. Since your sweater has four different colors, you can't dye it.

      You can help prevent fading in the future by washing in cold water and allowing the item to air dry. Hot water and machine drying fade clothes quickly. But as for this sweater? Nothing can be done.

      Good luck.

    O, I'm not made of $, people!!!

    -Peace!!!

    • ANSWER:
      washing your face with cold and hot water repeatedly actually helps, because the hot water opens your pores and the cold closes them which causes the dust/dirt/oil from your face to get washed.
      if you repeat this morning and night it will help
      or you could always try those creams that they show on TV or go to the doctor and he could prescribe you something if it really bad
      good luck, lol, i was lucky to not get any pimples

As of then her headache has been lessened but she is hack-coughing and hot most of the time (occasionally she is cold).

We haven't gone to the hospital yet but our family is extremely stubborn. So, can anyone maybe tell me what she has? Or if you don't know are there any home remidies that might help her feel better? Preferably non-Alcoholic types due to the lack of liquor in our house.

    How can I get my hair to be easier to comb?
    My hair is thick and its so thick that when I comb the hair,It breaks teeth out.What can I put in my hair???Prefebally Home Remidies

    • ANSWER:
      From looking @ your avitar you appear to be African American...

      Let me let you in on a little something... Natural/Nappy AA hair is not meant to be combed or brushed while dry.. Keep it up and you'll have breakage in your hairline, along with your combs.

      You should wash and condition your hair, then use a WIDE toothed comb, or a detangling brush (such as the Denman detangling brush) and do what you need to do while your hair is wet, and has leave-in conditioner in it... Then pick your afro into place (afro pick with the fist on the end). or hit it with a blow dryer on low heat while using the pick.

      If you live in a colder climate and can't leave the house with wet hair..... Stick your afro pick in warm water and then spray your hair with a bit of leave in conditioner and then start picking it.

      But whatever you do.... put the small tooth combs down for good.

    • ANSWER:
      Have you tried any over-the-counter remedies? I have heard great things about Theraflu. What's always worked for my sore throat is gargling with warm salt water and sipping hot tea. Not scalding, just nice and warm. If you buy a nasal spray decongestant, you should get some relief for your stuffy nose. Taking a steamy shower loosens up head congestion, too.

    • ANSWER:
      I love Mane and Tail Shampoo and Conditioner for soft, silky, manageable hair. But an easy trick to shiny hair is when you get finished with your shower, run cold water through your hair for about 30 seconds. The colder it is - the shinier. And if you blow dry your hair, when you are finished with that, give it a full blast of cold air and it will seal the ends and make it shiny and pretty. :)

      HAHAHA! Really? No you dont. Or rather you cant. It's not like you are going UP. It's just moving across in a different direction. I have family in Grand Rapids, and I live in FL. So i've been a few times back and forth by car/bus. If you think about anything too much i suppose it may make you sick- so if this time comes have cold water on handy. Take a deep breath, release it, and then SLOWLY sip on the cold water. * I hear flat/light sodas do the same so get sprite and open it the day before and put it in the fridge to get cold and flat.* If your stomach still feels a bit woozy, nibble on some crackers *no salt* and dont pig out *obviously* when you are feeling ill. If you are going by airplane- then there are awesome mints you can take for altitude sickness, you can get them at walmart.

      I hate Michigan so I get sick just thinking about it. It's a dreadful bore up there. Goodluck!

  28. QUESTION:
    Severe Pains In Arm What Are Some Good Home Remidies?
    Hello,
    I went on a field trip yesterday with my husband (he is a college professor). I had to carry an umbrella the whole time. My arm is so sore that when i go to touch it when i am about 1 cm away from touching it it burns. I have tried every medicine and even a massage but it won't work. What are some home remedies that could cure me quickly.

    Thanks in advance.

    • ANSWER:
      Here are some home remedies for muscle pain in general:

      a) Cold Shower or Bath:

      Overworked muscles respond well to a cold shower or bath, which eases the damage produced through overuse. After a hard run, icing down muscles may help prevent soreness and stiffness. It is suggested to apply cold packs for about 30 minutes every hour for the first 24 to 72 hours after activity.
      b) Rosemary:

      To reduce the swelling of strained muscles, a couple of rosemary leaves can help. Fresh and dried rosemary leaves contain four anti-inflammatory properties that can soothe inflamed muscle tissue and speed up the healing process. Soak a cloth in a wash made out of rosemary, which easily absorbs into the skin. Add one ounce of rosemary leaves to a 1-pint jar. Add boiling water to the jar. Cover and let stand for 30 minutes. Use the wash two or three times a day.
      c) No Heat:

      Heating pads and hot water bottles can do more damage than good for sore muscles, as heat dilates blood vessels and increases circulation to the area. This is not a good thing, as it causes swelling to actually increase.
      d) Stretch:

      Combat sore muscles after a hard workout by stretching. A good warm-up and cool-down is to take a 20-minute walk.
      e) Dry Beans:

      Place a couple of handfuls of dry beans into an old sock. Microwave the sock with beans inside on high for 30 seconds to 1 minute. Allow the contents of the sock to cool for a minute, and then apply to painful muscles [1].

      f) Bouillon:

      Sip warm soup before engaging in activities to help prevent muscle pain brought on my cramping. It’s suggested to drink one cup of beef or chicken bouillon, which also helps replenish depleted sodium lost from excess sweat.
      g) Epsom Salts:

      Soak in a hot bath filled with two cups of Epsom salts. With a high content of magnesium that easily absorbs through the skin, you can encourage the healing of torn muscles, as well as ease painful swelling. It is recommended to wait at least 24 hours before trying this home remedy.
      h) Ice, then Heat:

      Applying ice for the first 24 to 72 hours to injured muscles can help lessen pain and inflammation. Following this regimen, heat provides a soothing aftercare measure.
      i) Apple Cider Vinegar:

      Soak in a tub filled with lukewarm water and two cups of apple cider vinegar, which is an effective method of soothing muscle aches and pains.
      j) Get Your Zzz’s:

      Heal your sore muscles faster by getting plenty of sleep. If you are having trouble falling asleep because of the pain, consider using relaxation techniques, such as meditation or yoga, to encourage a restful night.
      k) Swim:

      If you own a swimming pool, one of the best home remedies for painful muscles is to soak in cold water. Taking a dip in your pool helps reduce inflammation. Swimming also stretches out your muscles, which alleviates pain.
      l) Massage:

      Gentle massage can soothe muscle pain.
      m) Banana:

      If you suffer from muscle pain caused by cramping, consume one to two bananas on a daily basis. Bananas deliver a healthy dose of potassium. According to the American Dietetic Association, an adult should receive about 2,000 milligrams of potassium a day. One banana contains 450 milligrams.
      n) Milk:

      Fight and prevent muscle pain with calcium. Keep in mind that drinking three glasses of milk a day meets the calcium needs of most adults.
      o) Water:

      Avoid muscle pain by replenishing the water lost during exercise. When your muscles do not receive vital fluids during a workout, the results are painful – usually coming in the form of a cramp. Drink plenty of water before, during, and after activities that cause your body to sweat.

    How can I get rid of pimples & blackheads?

    Does anyone know what products I can get in SA or anything (home remidies) I can make that will get rid of them?

    I have reaallyy sensitive skin.

    Thanks x

    • ANSWER:
      You never get rid of blackheads "for good". You have to get rid of them,them maintain a regimen to minimize their recurrence. You have a few options that I've used- Pore Strips, Blackheadmask, and egg and toilet paper mask-Before you use any method, I would recommend that you STEAM your face first. Be careful though. Get a pot, fill it half way with hot water, get it to boil. SHUT OFF the stove, and place your face above the steam. Again, be careful. You can also get a towell, soak it in hot water, and cover your face with it. Just make sure it's not hot enough to burn your skin.Then, do whatever treatment you want to do.
      After the treatment/strip/mask- Rinse your face with COLD WATER, then close your pores with either 1.salicylic Acid, or 2. Benzoyl Peroxide/acne medication 3. Sulfur ( I use de la cruz 10% but it is very drying) 4. Tea Tree oil (I'm going to be trying this one soon) to kill the bacteria that causes them in the first place. Go to www.blackheadmask.com and click on tips, and you will see a tutorial for the toilet paper mask- Second video. You can also purchase the mask (20$) but shipping takes a couple of weeks, and the egg method is FREE and available to you now. Hope this helps. Good luck!!!

    What are some at-home remidies for colds?
    I have a cold. Sore throat, dry cough, runny nose, congested, occasional headache. What are some ways to help my cold go away with some at home remedies?

    So far today, I have taken two DayQuil pills, and 2 teaspoons of Delsym. Unfortunetly, my dad decided to give me expired medicine. They both expired in late 2009/early 2010. Does this affect the way the medicine works?

    Thankss!

    • ANSWER:
      The US army conducted a large study on expired medicines. Since the military personnel pretty much sign their lives over to the army, they can pretty much do whatever they want. Anyway, the study concluded that "expired" medicine was just as effective. I do not know if this was due to some placebo effect or actual statistical result.

      The at-home remedies for a common cold are lots of rest, increased zinc and Vit C. Other than that the cold has to run its course and your body has to do the work.

    My hair is kind of dry and i love really soft hair and i only have a couple days till school starts so are there any home remedies that work really well and fairly fast. thanks :)

    • ANSWER:
      well what i do to mine is i get conditioner and heat it up a bit in the microwave.. just about 5 to 10 sec. then apply it all over my hair... put a plastic bag over it and then sleep. in the morning i wash it out with cold water (which helps your hair keep a little moisture) i also get a spray bottle and fill it about a quarter conditioner and 3 quarters water (shake it) then pow!!! you have your own homemade leave in conditioner!!!! try not to curl or straighten your hair as much and you will see a HUGE diffrence!!!! alos only do the warm conditioner thing twice a week... also try going a day or two without washing your hair so your hair can absorbe your natrual scalp oils which help your hair be shinny and soft

      oh yeah last but not least, try to not use shampoo all over your hair! just use it on your scalp... because your ends will dry up and get frizzy.

      good luck girl! =) hope it works for you like it does for me!

  43. QUESTION:
    What are some good tips on relieving period cramps?
    What are some of your home remidies regaurding periods

    • ANSWER:
      You know what many of the cramping, bloating, crying spells, depressive symptoms are from when we are on our menses ?? It's mainly due to magnesium not being in ample enough supply in our bodies........... yep, magnesium deficiency causes many of the symptoms and will quite quickly knock cramping, nausea and vomiting etc. on the head. So try eating more foods rich in magnesium and see whether that quells the pain and discomfort for you.

      foods rich in magnesium are ~ leafy and green vegies, wholegrain breads and cereals like organic brown rice or quinoa (pronounced keen-wah), ground up nuts and seeds like almonds, sunflower seeds and brazil nuts (ground up to aid in digestion of same).............. cold water fishes such as tuna, salmon, sardines and whiting and bananas too are rich in magnesium, so eat a banana hun.... actually cold water fishes are also rich in essential fatty acids which will help level out your mood and stress levels and nourish your brain and nervous system .

      magnesium is known as the antistress mineral and foods rich in magnesium will also resolve an acid tummy and help you deal with stressy life situations........ foods rich in magnesium will also increase the production of hydrochloric acid in your tummy thus aiding in digestion and helping to resolve any constipation or lower back pain stemming from constipation......... magnesium is essential for healthy nerve and muscle functioning.

      magnesium rich foods will also do a good job of relieving depression and the blues.

      Take a good quality multi B complex supplement also to assist in a healthy nervous, immune and digestive system and to combat some of the stress of being on your menses. Get one that includes all the B's ie ~ B1, B2, B3, B5, B6 andB12 as they work best synergistically (together).

      To alleviate any excessive bleeding go get yourself some organic loose leaf nettle tea from your local health food store. Simply put 2 teaspoons full into a teapot and fill with hot water and leave to brew for 10 - 15 minutes......... the taste can be a bit bland so spice it up with some raw organic honey if you like.

      Nettle is an herb very high in vitamin K, which guards against excessive bleeding. Nettle improves kidney function neutralizes uric acid, preventing its crystallization, aiding in its elimination from the system, thus relieving gout and arthritis. Nettle is useful as a tea for anemic children, due to its nutritive value....... so will also increase your energy levels... Nettle is also high in minerals such as iron, calcium, sulfur, sodium, copper, manganese, chromium, and silicon. Nettle is also used as an astringent to help stop bleeding and to reduce menses flow. Nettle is also a blood purifier and assists in lowering blood pressure and is wonderfull for bolstering hair growth.

      Check out this link it may be usefull for you ~

      http://www.theherbprof.com/hrbNettle.htm

      Sip your nettle through a straw to reduce the chance of possibly staining your teeth and ensure that you also drink plenty of water daily .. nothing substitutes for fresh filtered water..... stay properly hydrated by drinking at least 8 glasses of water daily.

      Really and truly, try the nettle tea, it works wonders for excessive bleeding and low energy and nourishes you with precious calcium, iron, vitamin K, etc... at the same time.... works for me and i used to have hideous bleeding .... ;0)

      Also, try to cut right back on processed sugar as it will only waste your B vitamins and calcium supplies and stress an already stressed system........ thus making cramping and other symptoms like constipation worse.

      eat foods in as close to their natural states as possible ...... fresh from God's table........ eat a bowl or 2 of leafy green vegies such as broccolli, celery, buk choy, kale, chard etc.......... do that and notice how much better you feel....... good for brain frizz, acid tummy, high blood pressure and constipation too.

  44. QUESTION:
    Can anyone tell Me some Home remidies that Make you sing better after a Sore Throat?
    I have a sore throat and I was wondering for some remedies to make my singing better, and also Isn't it true that after practicing singing so long that you break your vocal cords, or strain them, that when they come back your singing voice will be better, stronger and more Prepared to take on singing?

    • ANSWER:
      There is a reason for your sore throat and I would suspect it's because your singing technique is nil. A sore throat is a warning that something is wrong. Remember your throat is at the back of the mouth. The Larynx is where you see in males, an adams apple. If the throat is sore it's because of incorrect tension while singing. Or the start of a cold or bacteria within the throat. DO NOT SING OR WHISPER. Gargling with Betadine or an iodine based mouth wash will clear any bacteria. If you were a professional singer I would tell you to drink plenty of Manuka honey and Chamomile Tea. Honey is also antibacterial, chamomile tea is a muscle relaxant when your throat is sore from tension. And a professional singer never drinks citric acid as it dries up your natural saliva which is required when singing. If you practice with good technique you will sing for hours with no problems whatsoever, except tiredness in your torso muscles. Once your vocal ligament which is inside your larynx has lost it's elasticity from incorrect overuse it can not and will not recover. Remember it's flesh and bone and tissue we are talking about. Find a good voice coach. You are obviously young with little knowledge of the human anatomy or singing technique and don't believe all the myths and legends you hear from so many who have no idea of laryngeal Biomechanics - The biological working of the larynx. Get a good coach if you want to be a singer with potential.

  46. QUESTION:
    How do you keep your small dogs from peeing on carpet?
    I have a malteese, and a papillion, about 4 years old! They still pee on the carpet in my bedroom in the same spot all the time! They will go on rugs too , if I use them! They have done it so much , I can't get the smell out, and the carpet is so worn out in that spot! I put tile in the rest of the house, but I can't afford to do my bedroom yet! I have grass in the back yard, and a doggy door, so they can go out whenever they want! Usually when it's cold , or rainy, they don't want to go on the grass, so when were not looking, they go on the carpet! I use a little green bissel to spot clean, but it seems to be making it smell worse! I can't sleep at night, because the smell bothers me!
    Can anyone help me , before I tear out my carpet, and just live on conctete, untill I can afford to put more carpet or tile in my bedroom?
    Even If I could afford it , I don't know what to replace the carpet with! If I put more carpet, they will probably pee on it too, and tile would be kind of cold!
    I potty trained them when they were puppies, and I've been a stay at home dog owner most of their lives, so I take them out alot!

    • ANSWER:
      House-training an adult dog isn’t much different from house-training a puppy — in fact, your adult dogs should be able to “hold it” for much longer than a puppy, making retraining an adult less labor intense. Dog crates can be useful training tools when it comes to correcting house soiling problems, because dogs generally will not soil in their immediate environment. However, if your dogs have never been placed in a crate, take care to introduce him slowly.
      Sry forgot to add that the last link is for home remidies to take out pet odors. Hope this helps.

      Also, consider that your dog may define home differently than you do. To you, home may be a multi-story house, but your dog may see everything beyond the kitchen (which he has kept spotless) as “outside.” By restricting your dogs to a smaller area for a while, and then gradually extending their home area, you can help them learn the ropes.

      The procedure: Take your dogs outside, on leash, to a regular “toilet area” and give them a food treat for eliminating there. Try to keep “toileting” walks brief: If they are going to urinate, it’ll probably happen right away. If you do not have immediate success with them, take them for a longer walk, try using a different leash, or try exiting from a different doorway. This way you can emphasize that a bathroom walk has only one purpose. If they don't cooperate in time allowed, return indoors and supervise or restrict them, then repeat the bathroom walk in 15 to 30 minutes.

      If you discover an “accident” after the fact, clean it up without a fuss — punishment today won’t stop the behavior from being repeated tomorrow. Usually, consistent supervision or confinement and regularly scheduled bathroom walks (don’t forget the rewards!) will eventually teach your dog what is expected of him. If you catch him in the act, tell him ``no,’’ but resist the urge to shout. Instead, reward them lavishly when they go where they are supposed to.

      In addition to the above measures, it is very important to clean up previous messes. Physical cleanup or masking the odors won't do, instead try a proprietary odor neutralizer should be used. These products contain enzymes or live bacteria that destroy the odors at the source by breaking down the molecules. Without these measure the dog will be attracted right back to a previously soiled area. This will include shampooing the carpet and furniture thoroughly.

      Remember animals have a very behavioral nature and they are probably trying to out-mark each other so you have to be very routine as animals love routine. Work with both of them at the same time so they observe each other in training. It may be necessary to take them to a dog trainer to get help with this issue or call a local trainer in your area who can work with your dogs at the house. Make sure if you take on this endeavor yourself that you are able to spend ample time with them as that is what it will take to accomplish this.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    is there a quick herbal remidy that will help lower blood pressure and blood shugar levels?
    we r goin out and my relative has diabetes and a high blood pressure so i wanna know if there is some herbal remidy? pls lemme know asap thanks in advance.

    • ANSWER:
      No...

      Type 1 diabetics no longer have the ability to produce insulin, no amount of herbs can change that. A type 2 diabetic still makes some insulin so they may be able to adjust their diet and exercise to keep their glucose intake within the limits of their pancreas.

      You don't find answers walking down the herbal additives in a nutrition store. Some herbs have some chemicals that have some effect but they untested and unregulated. They also can't make something from nothing which is what they would need to do for glucose.

      The closest you'll get would be a diuretic. Urinating removes glucose removed by the kidneys and reduces blood pressure but diuretics have some pretty serious consequences too. I'm on a lot of diuretics because of a heart condition and was hospitalized once for dehydration because of them.

  4. QUESTION:
    What are some good ways to get a good nights sleep at 33 weeks?
    I find it hard to get comfortable and when i lie down my lungs are really squashed and i find it a lot harder to breath. I am wondering if there are any herbal remidies that are safe to use or just a way to get into a position that is comfortable. I am only getting a couple of hours sleep a night and with working full time i am exhausted.

    • ANSWER:
      they say to stay away from herbs when youre pregnant they arent sure of the effects. I do progressive muscle relaxtion which helps my aches and then place a pillow under my belly and behind my back and in between my legs. i also elevate my feet and drink a glass of warm milk. it helps until i have to get up and pee and then have to reposition myself. good luck i'm 34 weeks and i feel your pain.

  5. QUESTION:
    What kind of products can I use to get rid of my pregnacy acne?
    I'm 17 weeks pregnant and read that most acne medicines are bad for you, or they don't know how they affect the baby. I'm getting married in 6 weeks and I keep getting acne. I don't want to have my pics taken with a big pimple on my chin. Any herbal remidies that I can try that won't be harmful to the baby?

    • ANSWER:
      toothpaste- (dot on pimple and let crust over). works over night. works better with plain PASTE and not a gel paste.

      honey- honey is a natural anti-bacterial. bacteria need air to survive. honey blocks air from feeding the bacteria and clears it up

      Baking Soda- use baking soda in the shower, in the mornings, to wash your face. it's a natural pH balancer, and a very slight exfoliant

      Face Wash- use the absolute simplest, gentlest face wash out there. anything harsh (like glycolic acids, benzoyl p., salycylic acid) will prompt a reaction from your skin, usually making it produce more oil. a really good one is called Cocoon - and it's actually a baby wash, with no parabens, propylene glycol, or preservatives. find it at http://www.enfusia.com... (or at wholefoods)

      Tea tree and Lavender oil- if you have oily skin, STILL wash gently, and use TEA TREE oil and/or lavender oil as a toner to calm everything down.

      Strawberry Leaves-Place Strawberry leaves on the acne, the alkalinity helps to reduce the swelling.

      Egg Whites-Dab egg white on your pimple and leave on for at least 20 minutes preferably overnight, this is supposed to "Suck Out" the "Nasty Stuff"

      Vinegar-First wash face and then dab acne with cotton balls soaked in vinegar.

      I've used most of these from one time of another through ALL my pregnancies!

  6. QUESTION:
    Is there a herbal tablet or medican you can get to stop you drinking alcohol?
    A while ago I watch Gillian McKeith on you are what you eat and one of the people she was helping drank excessively which was a big part of his weight problem - she gave him a tablet or liquid of some sort that stopped the craving of alcohol and made it taste nasty when you drank it - it was a herbal remidy from a health food shop but I can't seem to find it anywhere - any ideas?

    • ANSWER:
      18. Use prescribed drugs

      Antabuse (Disulfiram)

      A doctor can prescribe this drug if the person wants to abstain from alcohol. If you take antabuse and then drink any alcohol it makes you feel very ill. Symptoms may include: nausea, vomiting, tachycardia (increased heart rate), palpitations, breathing difficulties and facial flushing.
      Antabuse should be taken after a detoxification. Some GPs are not prepared to prescribe it because of the severe effects if alcohol is drunk. Implants of antabuse in the stomach are also possible, but this approach rarely used. There is no evidence that antabuse helps people significantly cut down on alcohol over the long-term.

      Campral (Acamprosate)

      This drug is prescribed to help reduce the cravings for alcohol. It is recommended that it should be taken after detoxification, for up to a year. If a relapse occurs the dose should be continued, as it appears to reduce the pleasurable affects of drinking. Research studies have shown that relapses are shorter and less alcohol is consumed if Campral is being taken.

      Campral is not a miracle treatment; it may or may not help with cravings and reduce relapses. It should be used alongside other treatments, such as counselling or attending AA.

      Hemenevrin

      You may have heard of the prescribed drug Hemenevrin. It used to be given to ease withdrawal symptoms, but due to the dangers of people drinking on this medication, it is rarely prescribed now.

      Librium

      Librium (Chlordiazepoxide) is the drug usually prescribed during an alcohol detox. Vitamin B and perhaps vitamin C may also be prescribed.

      Naltrexone

      Research supports the use of this prescribed drug, which appears to block some of the pleasurable effects of alcohol. It helps prevent relapse in those trying for abstinence. It is not yet licensed for use in the UK, but some specialist clinics offer it.

      19. Try herbal treatments

      Milk thistle

      Helps the liver eliminate toxins. This can help if you are detoxing, but it won’t help with liver problems.

      Kudzu

      Kudzu, or ge-gen, is a quick-growing vine that grows in Japan, China and the southern United States. Extracts from the root have been used in traditional Chinese medicine for centuries. It is taken for many conditions including allergies, migraine headaches, diarrhoea, and to reduce cravings for alcohol. In an experiment, hamsters were given alcohol until they were dependent on it. These ’alcoholic‘ hamsters showed less interest in alcohol if fed kudzu extract. However, in scientific studies, kudzu has not been so helpful to alcohol-dependent humans and failed to help people remain abstinent from alcohol.

      Other herbal treatments that may help to relax you or help improve mood include: valerian, ginkgo biloba, and St John’s wort. All are available from health food shops or chemists.

  10. QUESTION:
    Does anyone have a dog that has diabetes?
    just found out today that 1 of my labs has diabetes,( total shock) i thought he had some type of blatter infection, some antibiotics and he would be as good as new, anyway iam totallly overwhelmed, havent given him his 1st shot, i have to do it in a few hours, hes suppost to get 2 a day, is there any other alternatives , God knows the vets wont tell you about any herbal remidies, also could it be regulated with foods after awhile, my vet didnt seem to sure...any serious suggestions,simlar situtations, advice, good websites etc... would be really apprieciated,please dont respond if you are guessing, thanks.

    • ANSWER:
      How bad this is really depends on what *type* of diabetes your dog has (there are several). A friend's dog had diabetes insipidous and died at the age of 3 :-(, but that's a form that's very difficult to deal with. Diet *does* help to an extent, but if the vet thinks your dog needs insulin, there's no real herbal or natural replacement for that. It pretty much means by his blood levels, that he is beyond a diet only fix (just like in humans.) Getting him into shape and regualr exercise will help some as well. Regular blood tests to make sure you hit a stable level are critical for treating it.

      Here's one site for it, but go ahead and goggle as there is literally tons of info on the web about it. http://www.petdiabetes.org/diet.htm You might also try the Lab e-groups to see about breed specific recommendations from other lab owners.

  11. QUESTION:
    dog has really bad athritis what remidy works?
    vet medication not working has been suggested we try a herbal remidy called 'devils claw'. does it work or any suggestions on what does.

    • ANSWER:
      My vet recommended trying Devils' Claw in conjunction with glucosamine condroitin for one of my greyhounds who has arthritis. The alternative would be having her on Rimadyl or something like it for the rest of her life, which isn't good for the dog if there's an alternative. The Devils' Claw is helping her. She can go for longer walks again, doesn't limp at all, although by the end of a longish walk you can see she's landing just a bit harder on the leg with the arthritis. She's also learned what "walk on the grass" means, so she doesn't walk on sidewalks unless necessary.

      It's worth it for her, but if vet prescribed meds aren't working for your dog, I don't see that this would help.

  12. QUESTION:
    How to avoid jet lag?
    I will be flying from the Netherland (Europe) to Chennai, India soon. I will be arriving in the morning local time. i am going on business and will have to go to work the next day, which gives me a day to acclimate myself.

    I have read various accounts online on the best way to avoid jet lag (herbal remidies, changing your diet, taking melatonin and vitamins).
    Some people say get as much sleep as possible beforehand, some say deprive yourself from sleep beforehand and sleep on the plane.
    I will be leaving in the late afternoon and will be arriving in India in the morning, so sleeping on the plane makes sense to me as that will be night time in India.

    What worked for you and why, can you give me any additional tips?

    • ANSWER:
      You cannot avoid jet lag but you can lessen its effects on you. Start with wearing loose comfortable clothing. This will allow you to relax and possibly sleep on the plane. Next keep hydrated, drink lots of water, airplane environments will dehydrate you.

      Depending on your arrival time, either check in to your hotel and go sight seeing some or do some shopping. Try to maintain a"normal" schedule where you land. Try to eat at the same times and go to bed at the same times.

      Returning to Europe from India will be easier on you since for some reason travelling west to east is harder to recover from than going east to west.

      Good Luck!

  13. QUESTION:
    Does anyone have any great home remidies for sore neck muscles?
    I just wondered whether anyone had any ideas. Ive got a few books about herbal remedies and massage, but unless you have someone to help you these things don't work well. I quite often hav a sore neck do to activities and sleeping wrong. Ive been told by a few people that my neck and shoulder muscles are really tight, and ive tried relaxation techniques but the tension just doesn't seem to budge. Any help would be most appreciated thanks xoxo

    • ANSWER:
      Take a warm shower to get the muscles looser and then do slow stretches. You might want to get an ergo-dynamic pillow (one shaped specially to cradle head and neck). Pilates and yoga are exercise programs which incorporate a lot of stretching. Take a class in Pilates or Yoga--it may help you relax all over, too.

  15. QUESTION:
    what is a natural remidy for swelling of the ankles?
    when i travel my ankles swell and it is worse in the hotter areas. i am planning a trip to florida and would like to know if there is an herbal drink or tablet i could take to minimize the swelling.

    • ANSWER:
      Fish oil does have some natural anti-inflammatory properties, but the supplement bottle itself can't actually say that because "inflammation" is considered a medical condition (go figure that), and no supplement can legally make a medical claim (which "anti-inflammatory" is, unfortunately).

      I've had several customers tell me that they take fish oil because it helps their arthritis.... but the supplements can't even imply that they could help arthritis because of FDA regulations.

      Anyway, I'll step off my soapbox now and say that it could also be joint problems. There are actually a good number of natural joint health products, too. The most popular ones I've found are Microlactin, Hyaluronic Acid, Tart Cherry Extract, Litozin (Danish Rose Hips), Glucosamin, Chondroitin, MSM, and Avovida (a combination of avocado and soy). Most of them are very economical and are very beneficial... our customers order them on a very regular basis. Most people get benefit from one or more of these ingredients within anywhere from a week to a couple months, depending on how long it takes for the supplement to get into their joints.

      The only thing you'd have to worry about on any of these aside from allergic reactions is that the Microlactin is from milk and the Glucosamin is typically from Shellfish (those are the most common allergens).

  16. QUESTION:
    Acidity and vomits- any home remidies for that problems or any suggestion?
    My father is 45 and is facing minor problems such as acidity. The food is not being digested properly and is coming out of the body in form of vomits. Well home remidies are always better,, so any suggestions, please!
    Plz answer!

    • ANSWER:
      Here are some home remedies to cure acidity...

      - Skip the aerated drinks as well as the caffeine. Opt for herbal tea instead.

      - Have a glass of lukewarm water everyday.

      - Include banana, watermelon and cucumber in your daily diet. Watermelon juice is great for curing acidity.

      - Nariyal paani is known to soothe the system if you suffer from acidity.

      - Drink a glass of milk - everyday.

      - Have your last meal at least two to three hours before you hit the sack.

      - Keeping long intervals between meals is another cause for acidity. Have small but regular meals.

      - Try to avoid pickles, spicy chutneys, vinegar, etc.

      - Boil some mint leaves in water and have a glass of this after meals.

      - Sucking on a piece of clove is another effective remedy.

      - Jaggery, lemon, banana, almonds and yogurt are all known to give you instant relief from acidity.

      - Excessive smoking and drinking will increase acidity, so cut down.

      - Try chewing gum. The saliva generated helps move food through the esophagus, easing symptoms of heartburn.

      - Ginger aids in digestion. Either buy powdered ginger in capsule forms or add the herb to your recipes.

      - A simple preparation of lemon water with sugar can be sipped on an hour before lunch to reduce uneasiness.

      - Have vegetables like drumsticks, beans, pumpkin, cabbage, carrot and spring onions.

      Try some ayurvedic or homeopathic medicines.

      Use garlic pearl after food
      take one spoon methi daily with water
      Gasol vati (for gas problem)
      God bless you and

  17. QUESTION:
    what herbal remedies can i use for my dog to keep get him calm?
    i have a border collie i understand that they are very excitable dogs but i was wondering if anyone knows any herbal remedies that i can give him to calm him down a bit with any drowsiness
    as for the response, he goes for walks and runs and plays but still very excitable

    • ANSWER:
      They have all sorts of herbal remidies at petstores and things to calm your dog down. There are shampoos, scents, sprays, etc.

      Here's a highly reccommended one from my vet:
      http://www.petsmart.com/product/index.jsp?productId=3057126

      (Talk to your vet first to make sure you should be using anything on your dog!)

      The BEST thing to do is walk your dog everyday to calm him down. Walk him for at least an hour, twice a day to help tire him out. Try taking him to a dog park, dog beach, or dog pool. Border Collies need lots of excersise. Try getting interactive toys. Play tug. Blow non-toxic bubbles. Chase him. Roll balls. Play him and tire him out... that will calm him more than anything.

      Also, while he may run and walk every day.... he needs mental stimulation. Interact with him. He needs to play with you and other dogs. Spend time training him and playing with him.

  18. QUESTION:
    are there any effective herbal or any other remedies for blushing?
    my son, 14, is having a terrible time with blushing at the moment and it is really getting him down. i know this is a phase and i have read some great advice on here about stratagies to deal with it but unfortunatly being 14 he has a rather closed mind at the moment.
    does anyone know of any remidies (herbal, homeopathic, etc) that might be useful?

    • ANSWER:
      If the blushing is just due to emotional problems then there is not much you can do, but it could be that your son suffers from the early stages of a skin condition like rosacea or has extremely sensitive skin, in which case a good external product to use would be dr hauschka rhythmic night conditioner sensitive, which can be used for 1-3 months and really does work. you could also try acupuncture or see a nutritionist about possible intolerance

  19. QUESTION:

    • ANSWER:
      Try and find the source of your hives and eliminate it, you could be allergic to the material of your bedding, something on it, or the soap you use to wash your bedding. Also if you are having a severe allergic reaction to something you will want to get yourself checked out. From personal experience ice can be soothing. You can also drink hot water mixed with sugar, it will send a rush of adrenaline through your body, then ice it, might give you some relief. Although if you arent sleeping you might want to make the investment of some antihistamines.

  24. QUESTION:
    How to grow my hair faster?
    So right now my hair is about a half inch below my collar bone, and i want it about 3 inches longer. I shower aboit once every 2-3 days and i usually straighten it every time after i shower (so about 2-3 times a week) how long will it take fo my hair to grow about 3" or is there any tips or home remidies to get it to grow faster? Thanks! Oh, also i should mention my nails grow very, very fast. I use vitamin E on my cuticles.

    • ANSWER:
      • Regular hot oil massage (at least once a week) serves as a highly effective home treatment for hair growth as it improves blood circulation and nourishes the hair shafts. The hair and scalp massage can be done with coconut, rosemary, castor or olive oil. After massaging, leave the oil on the scalp for at least half an hour.
      This oil therapy is also beneficial in controlling dandruff and hair fall. To warm the oil, pour it in a bowl and place the bowl in hot water. Use coconut oil as far as possible because gets absorbed in hair strands quite easily.
      • Applying a mixture of three drops of lavender oil, three drops of rosemary oil, two drops each of thyme oil and cedarwood oil in combination with carrier oils like 3ml of jojoba oil and20 ml grape seed oil is one of the best natural home remedies for hair growth. Wrap a warm towel (soaked in warm water and then wringed) to enhance the absorption of the herbal oils.
      • Onion is another great hair growth home remedy that is particularly useful in case of individuals dealing with hair loss as it helps regenerate hair follicles. To prepare this remedy, put red onion cut in two pieces, two cinnamon sticks and four garlic cloves in some water and boil the mixture for 15 minutes.
      Cool and strain the mixture and use this solution on hair for daily for four days to accelerate hair growth. Alternatively, you can also mix minced onion in a mild shampoo, let the mixture stand for about 15 days and then use it regularly.
      • Using a potato mask prepared by adding potato juice extracted from three potatoes, an egg yolk and some honey is one of most useful but relatively unknown home remedies to make hair grow faster.
      Apply the mixture on somewhat damp hair and leave it for almost half an hour before washing the hair with warm water. This hair growth natural treatment is highly beneficial for people suffering from hair loss.
      • Trim your hair after every five to six week to remove split ends that prevent hair growth. Moreover, take adequate hair care measures by brushing the hair gently in the morning and evening to stimulate circulation and facilitate hair growth.
      Make sure you not comb your hair when wet because wet hair are likely to break easily. Another tip to make hair grow faster is to brush your hair with the help of a boar bristle brush. Also, avoid using extremely hot water for washing hair.
      • In order to promote natural hair growth, take a nutritious and balanced diet including yogurt, fruits, sprouts, nuts, carrots, beans, spinach, broccoli, beans, whole grain products and other items rich in proteins. Yellow colored fruits and vegetables are also valuable for healthy hair.
      • As hair grows more during rest, taking proper rest is one the simplest natural home remedies to make hair grow faster. Exercising adequately is also necessary to make the body function better, thereby aiding in hair growth as well.

  25. QUESTION:
    How can i get rid of a wart?
    I have this wart on my finger and i have tried to get rid of it with some mediciny freezy stuff but it doesn't work at all...

    Some friends told me you can put sellotape or a plaster on it and it will fall off...Is this true?
    If so how long should I leave it on for and what should I do after I take the plaster off?

    Also does anyone know any natural remidies or really effective treatments??
    Thanks
    And i don't want to have to go to the doctors...

    • ANSWER:
      you can remove warts by surgery, freezing, laser, acid or with cream but warts can reappear again and again because warts appears when your immune system is weak! so you must build up your immune system because your body can get rid of warts by itself if your immune system will be strong! so eat more healthy food, more vitamins and more sport activities!
      (No smoking, no beer/ale, no booze, no drugs, no junk food, no fast food garbage, no sugary sweet soda's. Get on a good, balanced, healthy diet including plenty of boiled or steamed vegetables. Drink P L E N T Y O F W A T E R , fruit juices & fat free milk. Snack on lots of RAW fruit & veggies. Get up one hour early every morning & take a BRISK 30 minute walk - then - do the same thing again in the evening after dinner. Make sure you eat a good, balanced breakfast daily. You get your energy for the day from your breakfast meal. Get 8 hours sleep each night. Flip your mattress over so it will level out to give you a good night's rest. Slack off too much coffee & tea.)

      HPV is the virus that causes warts. And HPV virus has many strains. In your case you have HPV virus strain number 2. People can be infected with HPV and never show any symptoms. Others will develop warts. These warts can stay the same size, grow, or go away on their own. It depends on the infected person's immune system. A healthy immune system means your body may be able to suppress the virus and not show symptoms.

      also you should use some herbal treatment!

      in that case Wartrol is a good (probably the best) product that gets rid of warts and makes you feel more confident knowing that they wont reappear again! it says that it is designed for Genital Warts but
      it does not matter because warts are warts and wartrol works by stimulating your immune system to fight the HPV virus that causes the warts. of course it is better if you use full course (5 months - if I remember correctly).

      It worked and still works for me!

      I do not know if any pharmacies carry Wartrol but I do know that you should purchase it directly from the manufacturer and read more about the product here http://www.wartrol.com/?aid=749165

      good luck!

    • ANSWER:
      I used home remedies with my acne. Here are some tips that might be helpful:
      1) Tea Tree Oil
      2) Lemon juice
      3) Apple cider vinegar
      4) Bamboo extract or Sarna lotion – good for rosacea, psoriasis, eczema
      5) Bio Oil or BB cream for dark spots or scars
      6) Toothpaste is very effective for acne leave on face for about 20 to 30 minutes then wash.

      Applied lemon juice or apple cider vinegar to face or you can drink it through using it in water a few drops a day. Will help with both acne, and scars as well. Another way you can get rid of acne is by taking bamboo extract something I started when I had the problem really does work. Hope this works for you.

      OR: Here are seven best methods to clear up blemishes.

      Tea-Tree Oil
      Tea tree oil is a popular home remedy for acne. An essential oil is diluted and applied topically to acne lesions. How is tea tree oil believed to work? Tea tree oil contains a constituent called terpinen-4-ol that's thought to be responsible for most of tea tree oil's anti-bacterial activity. Because tea tree oil can kill bacteria, applying topical tea tree oil to acne lesions is believed to kill Propionibacterium acnes, the skin-dwelling bacteria involved in acne.To treat mild, occasional breakouts.
      How it works: Distilled from the leaves of an Australian shrub, tea-tree oil contains antibacterial and anti-microbial compounds called terpenoids that help kill the bacteria that, when trapped behind oil in a plugged pore, lead to acne breakouts. Try Burt’s Bees Herbal Blemish Stick (, burtsbees.com). A roller-ball tube makes for easy application.Studies testing tea-tree oil against the gold-standard acne treatment, benzoyl peroxide, have shown that while the latter works more quickly, tea-tree oil is equally effective over time. And it results in fewer annoying side effects—namely, dryness and redness.

      Sulfur
      If you have sensitive skin.
      How it works: A time-tested, gentle acne fighter, sulfur “acts like a sponge to draw oil out of blocked pores,”. This dries up pimples and keeps sebum production in check, helping to prevent future blemishes. Sulfur has a distinct smell—think rotten eggs. Most preparations that use it contain a masking fragrance. However, to play it safe (and avoid scaring off coworkers), apply these products at night.

      Salicylic Acid
      To treat and soothe red, inflamed blemishes.Salicylic acid can have a calming, anti-inflammatory effect on pimples. “It also breaks down the ‘cement’ between cells in clogged pores to help unplug them,”
      Salicylic acid is less irritating than more potent treatments, so it may be better for those with dry skin. It also tends to work well on stubborn blackheads.

      Retinoids
      Nightly to prevent breakouts.
      How they work: Retinoids, which include over-the-counter retinol and prescription-strength Retin-A, reduce acne by altering the oil chemistry on the skin. “They help stop dense sebum from getting stuck within the pores,” says Gross. Without oil deposits, bacteria can’t grow and cause blemishes. Since retinoids can make skin sensitive to the sun, doctors recommend using them at night (and being diligent about wearing sunscreen during the day). To avoid irritation, apply every other evening to start, gradually working up to nightly use. Bonus benefit: Retinoids have been shown to increase collagen production and plump fine lines, making them a good choice if you’re dealing with acne and wrinkles.

      Blue-Light Therapy
      If you want the latest preventive treatment—and don’t mind plunking down some cash for it.
      How it works: Once or twice a week, you use a handheld device to aim a beam of blue light onto your skin. “Its wavelength hits and kills acne-causing bacteria,” so any brewing pimples never come to the surface.This method will not address existing blemishes. Doctors typically suggest combining blue-light therapy with other remedies, such as topical treatments. To make things easy, consider a blue-light device that comes in a kit. At-home devices are smart alternatives to multiple costly treatments at a doctor’s office.

      Oral Antibiotics
      If you experience painful bumps below the skin surface and your pimples leave lasting marks. “Oral antibiotics act from the inside to kill the bacteria that cause acne,” says Keri. They also reduce the inflammation associated with pimples, so deep-seated blemishes hurt less and leave fewer scars.

      Doctors usually prescribe them to get a severe condition under control and may then switch to topical treatments. Some antibiotics must be taken on an empty stomach, so read the label carefully.

  27. QUESTION:
    How can i keep my hair soft, strong and healthy?
    I have naturally curly hair (not kinky) and i swim 4 times a week (im on a team) . i know that with naturally curly hair you should not wash it very often. but i need ideas on how to keep my hair healthy! home remidies are good. or brands of hair products you like.

    • ANSWER:
      Well, Chlorine isn't really your best friend in hair matters.

      First thing, always put your hair in a ponytail or braids to keep your hair from knatting together so you won't have to brush that hard because it can damage your hair.

      Second thing, showering a GOOD shower can get you very far. You can use your own extracts or shampoos, you might want to get salon brands or herbal essences to help. It just matters if you wash your hair good enough and really massage the shampoo to the scalp.

      Third thing, you probably do that "brush my hair one hundred times" thing but it's REALLY not good for you . Just brush your hair until it reaches it's softness.

      Fourth thing, any shampoo works. But i do recommend herbal essences or treseme.

      And last but not least, searching up healthy recipes for your hair really works . Once a week, you can mix olive oil and avocado together and run it through your hair. It really helps

  28. QUESTION:
    I have panic disorder and need advice?
    Ive had panic disorder since 19, now 27. Im sick of ssri's not working, making me worse, giving me awful side effects, changing my persomality, making me fat...Ect. Does anyone know of herbal remidies that have helped them? I know yoga, excersise, eating right, cutting out stimulants. I know what to do, im just sick of drugs!! Has anything helped?

    • ANSWER:
      Exercise is a wonder drug, truly. Ever since I was diagnosed as bipolar, I've been in the gym 4-5x a week. It's incredibly effective.

      As for supplements, try to get as much Omega-3 as you can into your diet. I take fish oil caplets. They don't taste bad, but you may burp up some salmon here and there.

      Omega-3's are very instrumental in regulating moods and helping the brain produce more serotonin (just like ssri's, but only more natural). I switched from butter to Smart Balance, Barilla makes omega-3 enriched pastas now, I snack on nuts (high concentration of omega-3) instead of other things.

      My pdoc advised me to take 5000mg fish oil caplets per day and I have really seen a difference. Now, I'm sure that could be the placebo effect, but whatever it is, it does help.

      Also, with a lot of people, taking ssri's w/o a mood stabilizer can actually create more problems and mood swings. By mood stabilizer I mean a class of drugs called atypical anti-psychotics. They sound sinister, but the only side effects I experienced was I felt groggy in the morning for about a week. Then all the side effects went away and it's great to take one before bed because you get get to sleep really easily.

      My anxiety has pretty much all gone away. My father is on the same med (symbyax) and he takes it for anxiety as well. He only needs one every 3-4 days and he feels great.

  30. QUESTION:
    What is the best remidy for a cold soere?
    I'm using abreva, but I was wondering if anyone knew anything that can help get rid of it faster.

    • ANSWER:
      I've tried all the home remedies such as applying tea tree oil, but nothing works any better or faster for me than Abbreva. Two days later, the cold sore is gone, as opposed to two weeks.

      Some people swear by opening the sore up with a sterilized needle, then freezing it with an ice cube. Again, I've never had any luck with that method, either.

      I am going to try an herbal remedy to boost my immune system and see if that cuts down on the incidence of the cold sores to begin with.

  31. QUESTION:
    How can I get rid of acne with homemade remidies?
    I have really bad acne and I heard of ways to do it online but wanted real peoples opions.It is on my forhead and cheeks

    • ANSWER:
      This is what I do.

      Aloe vera gel mixed with 2 drops of tea tree essential oil works really well and has been shown in studies to improve acne. Doing scrubs is not good for acne at all because it irritates acne so I use warm oatmeal with a little bit of honey to exfoliate which is more gently. A french "green" clay mask works very well also. I started using a papaya mask a few weeks ago and I now have a great glow and less acne!! It removes impurities from deep within and your acne may get worse before it gets better using the french clay.

      Papaya mask/exfoliant

      Cut the papaya in 1 inch chunks. Blend/mash 2 or 3 chunks and store the wrest in the freezer. Apply the blended/mashed papaya and leave on face for 10-20 min. Use 2 or 3x a week.
      The papaya may tingle but that just means that the papaya is working and it is breaking down dead skin cells to give that lovely glow and since it breaks down the dead skin it clears out the pores and in turn they shrink!!! (You may not see the results you want until you use it for a while.)

      You should try an organic cleanser. (You can get them at a health food store.) I use a herbal astringent recipe from "The herbal body book" by Stephanie Tourles which you can get cheap on half.com. Works really good and is so soothing. Use a oil free moisturizer or emu oil (http://www.daybreaklavenderfarm.com/store/Emu-Oil-...-DayBreak-s-is-Unrefined-and-Proud-of-it-pr-16676.html) at night on your face, neck and chest. (Emu oil doesn't clog pores and won't cause more acne. Promise!! I use it) Try taking vitamins A, E, D, C, B5 vitamin & Zinc. Also eat healthy lean meats, fresh fruits and vegetables. Boxed foods and fast food will make it so much worse!

      If you are on a tight budget try this.

      Cleanser: baking soda or sea salt.

      Toner: Organic green tea or aloe vera gel.

      Moisturizer: 1/2 cup water 3 tsp. vegetable glycerin and 5 drops lemon essential oil or oil free moisturizer.

      Mask: (use 2 or 3x a week unless you have dry skin.) French "green" clay removes impurities tightens and tones skin. (You can use overnight as a spot treatment also.) Leave on for 10-20 min or until dry then rinse and moisturize.

      Exfoliant: (use 2 or 3x a week unless you have dry skin.) Warm oatmeal mixed with a little honey. and left on for 5 minutes then rinse and moisturize.

      Blackheads: Baking soda mixed with water into a paste and then add tea tree essential oil if you'd like then scrub the affected are 2-3 min. Or apply elmers glue to affected are let dry and peel off like you would pore strips. Works really well!

      Daily as a morning toner/moisturizer you can use 1/4 tsp. aloe vera gel mixed with 2 or 3 drops of tea tree essential oil. Works really well.

      Also take vitamins A, E, D, C, B5 vitamin & Zinc. Also eat healthy lean meats, fresh fruits and vegetables. Boxed foods and fast food will make it so much worse!

      Hope this helps!!

  35. QUESTION:
    5 hour plane flight with a toddler - any remidies for air sickness and sleeplessness?
    I will be taking a cross country flight from LAX to Boston this September with my child who will be 18 months then. This will be her first flight. She is very active and we opted to pay for a seat for her so we can have her in her car seat in the plane - rather than trying to hold her on our laps for 5 hours. I know about the ear popping thing on take off and landing - Im just curious if there is something herbal or a medicine I can give to her to make her sleep or not get airsick on the flight.

    • ANSWER:
      Teething tablets are herbal remedies that some parents use to calm babies. They are at walmart and most drug stores.They disolve on the tongue and really chill out your baby. (My child was so chilled that I tossed them in the trash, it kinda weirded me out...)
      I traveled with my little one at that age and found that activities for older kids really kept her occupied. We strung beads and played with little lego blocks that are off limits for kids under 3. My little one liked the challenge and the newness of the toys. She is an active little thing, too. A portable DVD helped, as did having her in the car seat. I would not take her out unless it was really an emergency. That way she thinks that it is not even in the realm of possilbilities while riding on the plane. Otherwise you'll be juggling her in your arms and cursing the money you paid for the extra seat.
      Lastly, bring you sense of humor and some extra cash. If she is smacking the seats of your neighbors or being really loud, ask if you can buy them a drink. Heck, you have one as well. Those evil stares and whispers turn to praise when you are paying for the booze! Enjoy your trip.

    thank you

    • ANSWER:
      Antiperspirants It works for your underarms and it will work for your palms! Try this out in private first - you may not like the feel or the smell!

      Astringents Witch hazel or alcohol wipes help shrink pores and reduce sweating. Try rubbing medical alcohol wipes over your palms moments before you have to greet somebody.

      Sage A tincture of sage is good for reducing perspiration. To make the tincture, combine 1/2 cup of powdered sage leaves with 1 1/4 cups of vodka or vermouth in a well-sealed bottle; let stand for two weeks, shaking twice daily; strain and store in another bottle. Take 25 drops 3-4 times daily, or as needed. Drink a cup of sage tea daily to reduce perspiration, too.

      Tea bags Hold a wet tea bag in your palm for 10 to 15 minutes each day. You may need to use this technique for one to three weeks before a major event. The tannin in tea (regular - not herbal) is an astringent and its ability to shrink pores may decrease the perspiration.

      Zinc Taking zinc tablets has successfully reduced perspiration and body odor. However, don't take more than 15 mg daily for more than a week or two without medical supervision, as zinc may interfere with the absorption of copper, another trace element.

  37. QUESTION:
    Can any tea be drank as iced tea and still retain all the health benifits as it would hot?
    I have issues with trying to drink things that are truly hot. I tend to try and go too fast too soon and wind up with a numb burned patch on my tongue. Aside from teas that are meant to soothe a sore throat, do they have the same benifits at any temperature?

    Also, if you were to make herbal teas with intent to ice, could you make a large amount to last the entire day instead of making a cup three or four times?

    Am I wasteing my time with teas meant to energize and "slim?" I'm kind of testing the herbacious waters with the two teas I got today, didn't even know how to use a tea-ball really. If I have any success with these I may turn to herbal remidies for my mood problems, as modern medicine has failed me *or was it just that my psychiatrist was a moron?*

    • ANSWER:
      I don't know about the slimming teas, but I do know that at about 3:00 I get that hunger pang and usually make a cup of tea and it curbs my appetite for about an hour... that's plain old white tea though, it might be the caffiene

    Alternative/Herbal Remedys for Migranes related to Hormone fluctuations?
    I get severe migranes right before & right after my monthly. At the moment I take 800 mg. of Ibuprofin when I feel them coming on.. However I know how bad that stuff is for you in the long run.. Messes with your liver & kidneys. Anybody know any alternative/herbal remidies that are proven safe & do work?
    Thank You in advanced.
    Also with my migranes I also get skin break outs.. not pimples. It is more like dry red patches of flaky skin..just on my face on the creases along the side of your nose & at the corner of my mouth & under my bottom lip. (very imbarassing & irritating)
    ( I do have sensitive skin so I do have to watch what I put on my face.. (SIGH..)
    It is wierd.
    It comes right before my monthly & clears up about 3 days after.. along with the migranes.
    Also I am "fixed" & not on any birth control.
    I never had any of these problems until I got "fixed". thats is what is very wierd to me.
    I also went to my obgyn & all my tests came back just fine..I was told it was just hormones & no advice except that migrane medication that is practically poison that eases the pain.
    Thanks Guys
    You all are giving me really good Ideas keep em' coming. I'm gonna look into alot of this info. :)

    • ANSWER:
      There are two things going on here.

      One is migraine, which can be food triggered. Do you eat things during this time that you don't eat the rest of the month - like maybe chocolate?

      For ordinary migraine, feverfew is very effective if taken as a PREVENTATIVE. Lots of people have tried the pills or capsules and said it didn't work, so I suggest the old-timey way of drinking the tea. One cup a day is all it takes and it's not unpleasant. Use 1 tsp. of the dried herb per cup of boiling water, steep 4-5 minutes, sweeten with stevia or agave nectar. Alvita makes feverfew in tea bags.

      The other thing you're experiencing is hormone fluctuations. I would guess that you may be having some other symptoms, like painful cramping, back pain, lots of skin breakouts? Vitex berry (also called Chaste Tree) is wonderful for balancing the hormones. I would suggest the liquid extract if you can get it, or powdered extract in capsules. Take the suggested dose 2x daily for 30 days and see if that doesn't straighten things out. Then cut back to once daily.

      If Vitex alone doesn't do it for you, add Dong Quai to your regimine. Some companies, like Herbs, Etc. out of New Mexico, make a PMS combination that has those two as the primary herbs.

      All of these remedies are prophalactic so must be taken every day, not just when you experience pain.

      http://www.care2.com/greenliving/quick-fix-for-under-eye-bags.html

      Adapted from The Herbal Home Spa, by Greta Breedlove (Storey Books, 1998).

      Nobody looks good with puffy bags or dark circles under their eyes, but how to get rid of them?

      SIMPLE SOLUTION: Well, this is the easiest remedy I’ve ever run across, and it really works!

      I was so surprised by the single kitchen-cupboard ingredient that this How-To calls for--it's not a cucumber, and you’re sure to have one on hand. Find out the secret here:

      Raw potato slices will help tighten baggy, puffy eyes. All you need is a potato and a knife or slicer!

      To Make:

      1. Slice 1/4 potato to fit over your eyes.

      2. Cut 2 slices or, if you prefer, 5 to 10 very thin slices, several for each eye. Either method works.

      To Use:

      1. Spritz eye area with water.

      2. Lying down, place the potato slices on your eyelids and leave in place for at least 10 minutes for best results.

      Then prick a vitamin K capsule and apply the oil to under the eye. Leave it on all night.

They also reduce the inflammation associated with pimples, so deep-seated blemishes hurt less and leave fewer scars.

      Doctors usually prescribe them to get a severe condition under control and may then switch to topical treatments. Some antibiotics must be taken on an empty stomach, so read the label carefully.

  46. QUESTION:
    How to remove a wart using home remidies.?
    i have a couple of warts on my heel that have been there for mabey 2 yrs. How cab i get rid of them at home?

    • ANSWER:
      if you really want to get rid of warts forever then you should know that you can remove warts by surgery, freezing, laser, acid or with cream but warts can reappear again and again because warts appears when your immune system is weak! so you must build up your immune system because your body can get rid of warts by itself if your immune system will be strong! so eat more healthy food, more vitamins and more sport activities!
      (No smoking, no beer/ale, no booze, no drugs, no junk food, no fast food garbage, no sugary sweet soda's. Get on a good, balanced, healthy diet including plenty of boiled or steamed vegetables. Drink P L E N T Y O F W A T E R , fruit juices & fat free milk. Snack on lots of RAW fruit & veggies. Get up one hour early every morning & take a BRISK 30 minute walk - then - do the same thing again in the evening after dinner. Make sure you eat a good, balanced breakfast daily. You get your energy for the day from your breakfast meal. Get 8 hours sleep each night. Flip your mattress over so it will level out to give you a good night's rest. Slack off too much coffee & tea.)

      HPV is the virus that causes warts. And HPV virus has many strains. In your case you have HPV virus strain number 2. People can be infected with HPV and never show any symptoms. Others will develop warts. These warts can stay the same size, grow, or go away on their own. It depends on the infected person's immune system. A healthy immune system means your body may be able to suppress the virus and not show symptoms.

      also you should use some herbal treatment!

      in that case Wartrol is really good (probably the best) product that gets rid of warts comparatively fast and makes you feel more confident knowing that they wont reappear again! it says that it is designed for Genital Warts but
      it does not matter because warts are warts and wartrol works by stimulating your immune system to fight the HPV virus that causes the warts. of course it is better if you use full course (5 months - if I remember correctly).

      It worked and still works for me!

      I do not know if any pharmacies carry Wartrol but I do know that you should purchase it directly from the manufacturer and read more about the product here http://www.wartrol.com/?aid=221781

      The advantage of Wartrol over other natural treatments for warts is that, since it is taken orally, it can also act on invisible warts that can't be treated by other creams and natural remedies.

      good luck!

    How do I get thick, healthy looking locs?
    I have very thin hair and I'm going loc style and I was wondering should I cut the relaxer off and have the coil twists started for me or should I grow my hair out first, get it twisted then let the locs form on their own?

  48. QUESTION:
    How long does it take for bamboo to grow and where can I get seeds?

    • ANSWER:
      Bamboo has some of the fastest growth rates in the world. After they reach maturity they can grow up to half a metre in as little as two days. So be prepared for lots of pruning and the constant need to keep them from taking over the entire garden.
      If you can't get the seeds from your local apothecary, hardwhere store or stores that sell plants and plant maintenence equipment, you might have to search for suppliers on the internet. Being an exotic plant, it's bound to be hard to find. You could try Asian market places and Asian stores that sell herbal medicines and products. Even if they don't have it in stock, they should be able to get it for you or at least be able to give you information on where to get it, as bamboo is commonly used in recipies and remidies.
      Or you could try growing them from their stems, like you would with roses and certain other stalks.

  49. QUESTION:
    Are there any other benefits aside from encouraging labor to taking Red raspberry leaf?
    Just curious, i got some my friend had left over from her pregnancy, and they say assists childbirth on the bottle - how so? Aside from apparently bringing it on (which ive heard is not true anyway)

    • ANSWER:
      Red rasperry leaf tea has been used for a number of years for all different reasons.It contains alkaloid fragrine which has been found to tone the muscles of the pelvic region and uterus, so that the process of delivery becomes easier, faster and less painful.

      However, red raspberry leaf tea does not induce labor directly. Instead, it strengthens the muscles of the pelvic and uterus, so that they can contract more efficiently during labor which is why there is widespread use of red raspberry leaf tea to induce labor. In other words, the tea can promote uterine contractions during childbirth and also help to reduce the pain experienced during and after labor. In addition to these, red raspberry tea leaf can promote better blood circulation, ease morning sickness, prevent postpartum hemorrhage, relieve constipation, prevent miscarriages and promote lactation and bone development in the baby. Read more on red raspberry tea and pregnancy.

      Some other benefits for using this tea are that the leaves of the red raspberry plant has astringent properties, for which it can constrict the intestinal tissues to provide relief in diarrhea and soothe inflammation of the intestine.
      The astringent properties of the leaves also makes them ideal for treating skin irritation and improve skin firmness.
      Red raspberry leaf tea can be an effective herbal remedy for sore throat, irritation of the oral cavity and gum diseases.
      It can also help to prevent dehydration, and lower the level of blood sugar in diabetic patients.
      Apart from these, red raspberry leaf tea can be used to treat flu, upset stomach, nausea, vomiting, fever and rubella.

      Natural remidies and herbs can still have side effects,so be sure what ever you take,you inform your doctor first.

    How do I get rid of my headaches?
    I have had headaches everyday since I was in 7th grade (I'm a junior), is there any way besides taking large amounts of medications to get rid of headaches? Natural remedies or am i doomed to suffer for a long time?

    • ANSWER:
      It actually could be the medications that cause this if you have been on them a long time. It happened to a relative of mine. Got off the meds and was much better. But it took a while to come off meds. Have you had an MRI to check for tumors such as pituitary adenomas? That could also be a problem causing headaches and about 30% of women have them and do not know it.

  5. QUESTION:
    how many moles of caffeine molecules are present in 250mg caffeine?
    The average cup of Caffeine contains about 125mg of caffeine, C8H10N4O2. Caffeince is also found in tea, colas, and headache remedies.

  6. QUESTION:
    How does the product "HeadOn" actually work?
    Is the purpose of this commercial to actually "give" people headaches to get them to purchase this weird headache remedy? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Is3icfcbmbs

    • ANSWER:
      I absolutely LOATHE those stupid commercials. Thank goodness I don't see them on TV anymore as of lately.

      I think it all comes down to the placebo effect. You think it works, therefore it does...sort of. Probably safer to use than an actual painkiller now that I think of it, but definitely not as effective (especially for us smart types who know it's not real medicine in the first place).

  7. QUESTION:
    What is a really good headache remedy?
    I get headaches all the time, but typically only after a long day. My doctor said it's most likely just tension, but I can't seem to stop them. Any suggestions?

    • ANSWER:
      I have had chronic headaches since early childhood, and I have lots of ways to deal with headaches.

      1.) Headaches are often caused by environmental factors. Stuffy, warm, dry air can cause headaches. When you come home from work, take a cool shower, and take deep relaxing breaths. This will hydrate you, relax you, and open your nasal passages so that you can breathe more efficiently. The cool water will also bring down your body temperature a little bit, which can cause blood vessels to shrink. Migraines are often caused by dilated blood vessels which cause pressure in the head. Cool yourself further by drinking a glass or two of icy water. This will further hydrate you and cool you down more.

      2.) You may have an allergy. Try first to isolate any potential allergens, such as pet hair, pollen, dust, etc. You may need help from a doctor to do this, so wait until you have exhausted all other possibilities.

      3.) Since you have these headaches when you come home from the office, it is possible that you have stuffy sinus passages from the dry dusty office air. You can use Vick's vapory to clear your nasal passages. You can inhale a little straight from the tub, or get the little inhalers from the drug store. Try using those in the office during the day when you feel your headache coming on.

      4.) Do you drink a great deal of coffee at work? Eat candy, chips or junk food? If that's the case, you can have a headache from the sugar crash you have when you get home. Stop drinking coffee and eating junk foods. Bring lots of healthy snacks like nuts, fruits, carrots etc. It will reduce your sugar intake, and you might even lose some weight (nice side effect)

      5.) Drugs are not a good solution in the long term. My neurologist recommends taking Alieve, because it's ingredients will not be harsh on the stomach, and have no long term side effects. So if you do have to to take something to get rid of your headaches, you won't be risking liver and kidney damage (Acetaminophen or tylenol) or damage to your stomach lining (Ibuprofen or Advil)

      6.) Get a humidifier or an air ionizing fan. When you come home, turn it on, let the air blow onto your face, close your eyes, and just relax for 30 minutes. You'll feel refreshed even if your headaches don't go away.

      7.) Go see a doctor. This could be an allergen, or a migraine, or stress, or something more serious. It is unlikely since your GP isn't worried, but you should ask to be referred to a neurologist, so that he can help you deal with other options for your headaches. My neurologist has a psychologist on staff who teaches self hypnosis techniques. Basically he teaches you how to totally relax yourself, and once relaxed, the tension causing your headaches can melt away.

      Hopefully one of these solutions works for you. Good Luck.

  8. QUESTION:
    What is the best way to get rid of a migraine?
    Both my mom and I suffer from migraines. She gets some that last for up to 9 days, mine last at most 3. The only thing that seems to work is lots of sleep, but this leads to lots of missed school, for me. I've tried Tylenol 1, Tylenol with codeine, Tylenol 3, and numerous other headache relief remedies.
    Is there any home remedies that anyone has tried that seems to work? I'm about willing to try anything at this point, and so is my mom!

    • ANSWER:
      Imetrex works if taken right away
      Treximet is new and cannot be taken with anit-depressants--
      But those are perscriptions and expensive--I know you said HOME rememdies so here goes
      This is what I have found works best for me(I take Vicoden for back pain and cannot take anything else on top of it) I use HOT steamy compresses on my face and or a heating pad or a heated gel pack(2.49 or so Walmart) on my head or neck(wherever I am feeling the achyness stiffness and or tightness most) I know this story well it feels like a hammer banging you in the head and I have even gone to the ER from the vomiting several times I am normally not a violent or unkind person but the girl who answered to bang your head against the wall needs hers banged against the wall that would only feel worse she has obviously never had one--also I happen to have hairdryers because I used to own a salon so I sit under one of those but you could try a blowdryer on your head if you don't mind messing up your hair(and when you're in that much pain who does???)Basically HEAT seems to open up the vessels that are constricted and make them feel less pulsating --to me at least--I also prefer QUIET dark and have to get really really WARM
      Take care hope I helped

  9. QUESTION:

      for instance...kids cereals = Fruit loops, Count Chocula, etc.
      Adult cereals...Raisin Bran, All Bran, Total, etc.

  10. QUESTION:
    Any natural headache remedys that work for you?
    I don't want to always take tylenol or any medication.

    are there natural ways that work for you in relieving headaches?

    • ANSWER:
      I'm late. Hope your headache is gone by now.

      The one thing that almost always works for me is to put a heating pad on the back of my neck and an ice pack on my forehead/top of my head. Supposedly, this expands the blood vessels where the blood leaves the head and shrinks the vessels in the head and relieves the pressure.

      If you have someone that can give you a face, scalp and neck massage, try that.

      At times, I boil some water on the stove and add a tiny drop of tea tree oil, peppermint oil, or camphor oil. Then I make a towel tent over my head and breathe the steam in, blowing my nose frequently.

      Sometimes I apply tea tree oil to my forehead and temples in conjunction with one of the other methods.

      Try some Icy Hot or similar on the back of the neck and shoulders.

      Hope you feel better soon!

  11. QUESTION:
    What are some good home headache remedies?
    I have terrible headaches all the time what are some good natural remedies? They really wear me out!

    • ANSWER:
      Well, that depends a bit on what type of headache you have, and what is causing it. The common types of headaches are sinus, tension and migraine headaches. You may have headaches because of other reasons, but those typically need medical attention, and medication.

      SINUS HEADACHE

      Usually intense pain between and above the eyes, around the nose, and mostly involving the face. These are caused by swelling, blockage or irritation of the sinus passageways. The pain can occasionally radiate to the ears, but when that happens, you will need to see a physician, because that usually means that you have an ear infection.

      In order to treat this type of headache, you need to release the pressure. Boil water, pour it into a heat proof bowl on a counter or table. Add a good quantity of chamomile or peppermint tea (peppermint is better), or add peppermint, spearmint or eucalyptus oil to the hot water. Get a thick towel, cover your head and the bowl so you create a steam chamber, and inhale deeply for 20 minutes. After a few minutes, your nose should start to run quite heavily. Clear it out as often as necessary to get rid of the buildup of mucous in your sinuses. After you are done, press a cold towel or icepack to your face and forehead. This will shrink blood vessels, and release swelling, not to mention make you feel refreshed. You can do this safely two to three times per day. You will also feel better by drinking lots of hot tea and broth, and you should bulk up on your vitamins to help your immune system fight this off. Unfortunately, if you don't receive relief within 5 days, you likely will need medication, because you will have contracted sinusitis, or some other infection.

      TENSION HEADACHE

      Commonly cause pain in the temples, between the eyes, and the back of the neck. May also have pain above the ears. This pain is caused by muscle tension. Typically, you will experience this when you are stressed, sitting or sleeping in a bad position, or otherwise have bad posture. Hunching, squinting and frowning can also exacerbate these. Since these types of positions are commonly adopted unconsciously because of stress, bad lighting, or an otherwise bad mood, Relaxation techniques tend to help. Placing a warm, moist towel on the affected area, or using a heating pad, will make you feel better. Also try drinking a mild, stimulant free tea to help further relax, and hydrate you. Drinking lots of water will also help, if for no other reason than that the frequent bathroom breaks will give you a change of scenery every now and again.

      MIGRAINE HEADACHES

      You may feel pain along a sharply delineated area. Eyes may hurt or feel like they are being compressed. You will be sensitive to light, sound and sudden movements. These are caused by stress or environmental factors. An increase in blood flow to the brain will cause blood vessels to bulge, causing pressure on sensitive nerves in the head. Understandably, these cause intense pain. You will likely also experience nausea, dizziness, disorientation and irritability. To begin, take a cold shower, and drink lots of ice water. Your goal is to bring your body temperature down. This will slow your heart rate a little bit, decrease your blood pressure, and thus, decrease the blood volume in your brain. You will begin to get relief within 20 minutes or so. You'll be freezing cold at this point (you won't have hypothermia, you'll just be cold) so get into bed, put a cool cloth over your face, make sure it's dark in the room, and take a nap. A simple migraine can typically be stopped or at last reduced by this method. Unfortunately, migraines tend to be complex and caused by a wide variety of things, so if you experience these headaches frequently, you will need to talk to a physician to deal with the issues.

      OTHER

      Headaches can also be caused by a variety of health issues. High intracranial pressure can lead to excruciating headaches which are often accompanied by vision changes or loss of motor function. These, even if intermittent, must be treated by a physician, because they are indicators for serious medical conditions. Diabetes can cause severe headaches often accompanied by dizziness, disorientation and nausea. If headaches persist, become unmanageable, or interfere with day to day activities for long periods of time, a physician must be involved to rule out serious causes.

  12. QUESTION:
    What home remedies do you know that cures all types of illnesses?
    Like for instance our mom would tell us if your constipated, use cayenne pepper in soup, or if you got a burn use the leaf of an aloe vera plant and rub the infected area to relieve the pain. Lastly rub an ice cube on the palm of your hand to relief migrane headaches. What other remedies do you know for illnesses?

    • ANSWER:
      Colon cleanse to help everything. Also, the last 5 years I've been using MSM every day to give me energy with no jitters; excellent benefits only. No side effects. Also, I drink Alfalfa -- sometimes I take chlorella to boost my system. Also, CoQ10 seems to help me greatly. Cayenne improves your circulation also. It's great to get rid of sore throats. I gargle with it after I gargle with warm salt water to kill germs. It seems to get rid of it right away. I wonder if it kills germs or if it's just boosting my mucus to eliminate anything.

  13. QUESTION:
    How do you solve this AP Statistics Question?
    A headache remedy is said to be 80% effective in curing headaches caused by simple nervous tension. An investigator tests this remedy on 100 randomly selected patients suffering from nervous tension.

    a) Define the random variable being measured: X = ?

    b) What type of distribution does X have?

    c) Calculate the mean and standard deviation of X

    d) Determine the probability that exactly 80 subjects experience headache relief with this remedy

    e) What is the probability that between 75 and 90 (inclusive) of the patients will obtain relief?

    • ANSWER:
      qa
      x = number of patients experiencing relief

      qb
      binomial distribution

      qc
      mean = np
      = 100*0.8
      = 80
      -------

      SD = sqrt(npq)
      = sqrt(100*0.8*0.2)
      = 4
      -----

      qd
      using the binomial distribution formula,
      P[80] = 100C80 * 0.8^80 * 0.2^20
      = 0.0993 or 9.93%
      -------------- -------------

      qe
      for this part, we shall use the normal approximation to the binomial
      after applying continuity correction, we need to find P[74.5 < = x < = 90.5]

      z1 = [74.5 - 80] / 4 = -1.375
      z2 = [90.5 - 80] / 4 = +2.375

      reading from a z- table for the area between the 2 z-scores,
      reqd. probability = 0.9067 or 90.67%

  16. QUESTION:
    I am in an AP Statistics Class and am having trouble on a question and would like help if anyone can. Thanks?
    A headache remedy is said to be 80% effective in curing headaches caused by simple nervous tension. An investigator tests this remedy on 100 randomly selected patients suffering from nervous tension.

    What is the probability that between 75 and 90(inclusive) of the atients will obtain relief.

    • ANSWER:
      I'm in AP Stat, too, so I'm assuming we're doing the same unit right now. This is a binomial distribution b/c there are a fixed number of trials (100) and you are trying to find P(75<n<90). So, you have to use the formula for binomial distributions:
      P(X=x)=(n/x)*p^x*(1-p)^n-x
      n/x= nCx (combination, to figure out how many possible orders you can have x successes in n trials)
      n=number of trials
      p=probability
      x= number of successes in n trials
      So, for 75 successes, P(X=75)=(100/75)*.80^75*(1-.80)^100-75= .04387
      Keep doing this for all numbers from 75 to 90 and add up your answers. This will work. It's probably not the fastest way, but it's the only way I know. I hope this looks familiar to you, because otherwise you are going to be lost.

  18. QUESTION:
    How to stop headache home remedies!?
    How do i stop my headache with home remedies?? Suggestions wanted Thank you

    • ANSWER:
      OH I got the best (I love it when people ask this...makes me seem like a genius) , I've had terrible migraines since I was like 10, advil stopped being effective, but I've learned that if you switch between Advil and Tylenol (or whatever you use) you won't develop a immunity. I mean for 3 months, use Tylenol any time, then the next 3 months use Advil, switching back and forth every few months.

      But if you want a real home remedy, LEMON JUICE!! I swear it works, at least 9 out of 10 times.

      What I was told : Take a lemon, cut it in half, rub the half on your head, wherever the headache is, and you will feel (near) instant relieve. Obviosly don't rub the skin on your head, the idea is to get the juices touching your head.

      I believe that limes will also work, although I've never tested it, since lemon (juice) works just fine.

      What I do: Instead of going out and buying lemons all the time, I buy lemon juice (it's in the cooking aisle of your local grocery store, probably already in your shelf at home - ask your mom). You squirt a small amount into your hand and massage it into your scalp, just enough to wet the area.

      Caution - I've noticed that it also acts as a type of hair gel, hardening the hair (until you shower or rinse it out), and it will often look weird. My mom also told me that mixed with lots of sunlight it can lighten you hair. So be careful. Also it has a distinct smell to it, and can attract misquitoes.

      I've done the masterbation thing (I'm a guy, if it makes a difference) and I think it does work...once your finished, but DURING the process it just makes my headache worse and not really worth it.

      Sometimes just laying down in a dark room with some light hearted music can make all the difference. Going for a drive, the feeling of the wind blowing in your face can do it (a fan may also work), also a snap of cold air (driving in a car during winter), Ice cream and popsicles.

      The best thing - Take a pill (you should take one the moment you feel one coming), do the lemon juice thing, lay down in a dark room with some music, and get someone to give you a foot massage (no talking during) and that should fix it no problem.

  20. QUESTION:
    Can you make rosemary oil using canola oil?
    I mean, using that method where you put rosemary leaves in a jar, cover them with some sort of natural oil and leave them for six weeks. Most recipes recommend either high quality olive oil (which I don't have) or any natural oil such as grapeseed oil. (The oil isn't for cooking, I'm making it as an alternative headache remedy, in case that helps - I know this is in the wrong category but I think more people would know the answer in this category than in others.).

    • ANSWER:
      Yep, that's totally fine. Chemically speaking, all you need is some sort of liquid lipid (fat) in order to dissolve the lavender's essential oils. And oil dissolves oil, so technically, you could infuse melted butter. However, canola is a great, naturally flavorless oil. It will work splendidly with your lavender. And good luck with the headaches.

    Do you ever get "cannabis headaches", and how do you cure them?
    I am a medical cannabis patient in full compliance with California law. It works very well for me, with one exception; certain varieties, especially strong Sativas, give me very painful headaches. A "weed headache" feels very distinctive and comes on very quickly, but it makes it very difficult for me to use my medicine sometimes. I don't have the money to just toss and replace what causes a headache.

    Since cannabis is my usual headache remedy, I'm a little stuck. Neither caffeine nor OTC painkillers help. Any advice?

  25. QUESTION:
    Find the number of molecules of pain reliever in the standard doses of (a)Tylenol and (b)Advil.?
    Manufacturers of headache remedies routinely claim that their own brands are more potent pain relievers than the competing brands. Their way of making the comparison is to compare the number of molecules in the standard dosage. Tylenol uses 325 mg of acetaminophen as the standard dose, while Advil uses 2.00 x 10^2 mg of Ibuprofen.

    • ANSWER:
      ♠ number of molecules of stuff is n=m/a, where m is mass of stuff, a=μ*v is mass of a molecule of this particular stuff, μ is atomic mass of the molecule, v=1.993·10^(-26) kg is mass of hydrogen atom;
      ♣ thus m1=325·10^(-6) kg, μ1 = {IDK, see chemical formula!},
      n1=( 325·10^(-6) / 1.993·10^(-26) ) / μ1 = 163·10^20 / μ1;

    • ANSWER:
      First you should check eyes and take treatment for eyes if problem.

      There is no medicine for H/A OR MIGRAINE. Not only these but for almost all painful diseases like RA, Back ache, earache etc. Hence they become chronic.

      Acidity, WORRY, sadness, excessive wind, cold , heat, sour food and sinusitis, constipation, intestinal inflammation; drug side effects, stress, bad smell, TV & COMPUTER SOMETIMES,
      Blockage in the flow of Vital Energy are their causes. None of them can be treated with medicine. Our 100% success in treating migraine &H/A confirms it.

      Acupuncture is the best treatment.
      I can treat it with naturopathy and YOG, but how can you manage pl see.

      Pain killers don't treat the pain but we loose the sense of pain for some time; in that duration our body itself treats sometime and credit goes to meds.

      These useless drugs have enormous power to create hazardous side effects like liver/kidney failure, ulcer, acidity and lot others.

      Avoid late sleeping if possible; worry, spicy foods, sour fruits, stale bakery foods and alcohole.
      Sweet foods, COCOANUT WATER,sweet fruits, milk, rice, SPROUTS, SALADS and good sleep will help you if cough is not there.

      But you try one herbal remedy- two drops of drumstick leaves' juice in opposite nostril if one side pains and both nostrils if full H/A will give you rescue. Betel leaf helps but it is very strong.

      Pl search a painful point 3-6 mm behind your thumb nail and press it, H/A will disappear within 30 seconds!

      If it's a migraine, then take a warm towel and wrap it around your head as tight as you can stand it and lay down in a dark room with NO noise.
      That's what I do when I run out of my migraine medication.
      Also, getting a soothing neck massage in a dark quiet room helps a little too. I usually go with the towel though it really helps.

  37. QUESTION:
    What is an excellent remedy for headache?
    My friend of mine often had a headache. She is 21 years old, small figure and usually works more than 10 hours a day because of load of works. She works in the office and rarely do exercise. Could it be a migraine?

    • ANSWER:
      time is one factor: often you get stressed by having the headache which means you cannot get rid of it. If you can, do something which is relatively distacting. If it involves natural light, open air and natural souinds all the better. I only get headaches for the last 3 years when I have to sit with all the computers in the office, doing nothing else and the coffee can't be helping me...

    Does anyone know any good headache Remedies?
    I've had a headache on and off for a few days. It feels like pressure in my head (I don't think it's sinus related). I took Advil and it's not working. What is something I can take that is stronger than Advil, or are there any other home remedies I can try?
    It's a headache with dizziness

    • ANSWER:
      If you really need relief asap, you can take up to 4 capsules of Advil at one time - when the dosage is 200mg, it's okay to take up to 800mg which is four tablets. That might cut the edge off . Try that a couple of times and see if that helps. You might want to try doing some neck muscle stretches to see if that doesn't bring some relief. http://www.howtostretch.com/neck.htm).

      Depending on where you live it is possible that your headache may be sinus related but not the usual. In the U.S. right now there are a lot of bad storms, which are low pressure systems. You can actually get pressure headaches from the low pressure system coming in - especially this time of year, when everyone has the heat on and the air indoors is so much drier.

    I'm just looking for some simple remedies that will work on my head! thank you!

    • ANSWER:
      There is a designated acupressure point for headaches at the base of your skull. It is listed as GB20.
      Try putting a couple of tennis balls in a cotton sock, tie it off so they are snug to each other, and lay on it so that they are in the little hollow at the base of your skull, both sides.
      Do it when you don't have a headach so you know how it feels. Perhaps put it on a pillow first to reduce the pressure.

      Or take a couple of socks, put about 2 1/2" of rice in the toe portion, tie them off, cut off the extra, put them into the cotton sock, tie it off, etc. Then you can warm them in the microwave.

      Same thing can be done for tension headaches. I can stop a headache with thumb and forefinger at the base of the skull.

      Some people get relief from the migraine if they can halt it before it happens, by putting their feet in HOT water when they get the "aura" warning that they are gonna get one. Some quickly take a hot shower to change the hemodynamics.

      Others take an aspirin, which makes the platelets 'slippery', helps them go through the narrowed vessels.

      And remember that there are foods, such as chocolate, and MSG, that can cause them. Suggesting that you keep a food diary.

I've heard its because all those muscles in my neck and head are tensing up, and that's what has been causing my headaches, I've tried what other people say, and it is just not seeming to work. Anything, I don't car how silly it is.

    • ANSWER:

      Headache cures and massage

      There are also four other headache cures available that do not involve using medications and these include eyes area massage, eyes to nose massage, neck massage and scalp massage. each of these four methods of headache cure are natural and once they have been tried, the person should take deep breaths, lift their shoulders towards the ears for five to ten seconds to ease the pain and then drop them back to the normal position.
      Cure / get rid of headache without pills

      * Tip your head slowly to the sides and stretch out the muscles of the neck.
      * To massage the aching spots works temporarily if you also at the same time try to figure out where you got to relax in order to get rid of the pain more permanently.
      * Exercise. The human body needs physical work. Nothing is better against physical tension than running uphill a ski-slope for instance. Painful in the beginning but a pleasure after a while when you realize that you can make it - and to be able to run up a ski-slope is self-esteem and prestige everywhere.
      * Drink enough water - but not too much. Headache is also often a result of dehydration, but also the opposite, that some nowadays drink too much water and thus dilute the nutrient fluids in the body causing abstinence of sorts.

      Home remedies to cure headache

      acupressure: reduce headache pain by squeezing the web of skin between the thumb and pointer finger as hard as you can; or use both thumbs and apply pressure under the bony ridges at the back of the head

      meditate: imagine the pain flowing out of your head; you may combine this with the deep breathing exercise

      Use an ointment with heat(for example Ben-Gay or Icy Hot) and rub it on your forehead or base of your neck, wherever it hurts. It will burn slightly and give a warm feeling to your head

      Listen to relaxing music while you lie down

      Although not medically proven, you can try the following:

      B6 or B complex vitamins can prevent headaches or lessen their severity

      Two tablespoons brewer's yeast can cure headaches

      1200 milligrams of lecithin capsules daily can prevent migraines(cleck with physician before using)

      Peppermint Tea can calm you and ease the pain

  48. QUESTION:
    How long does the headache last with a spinal?
    I had a c-section on may 31 of this year. They gave me a spinal and I have had the worse headache since then. I didnt notice it as much when I was on the stronger pain killers, but now that I am off of them, it's horrible. How much longer will this last?

    • ANSWER:
      It is drug side effect.
      pl see what suits you.
      If you are in cold country use all warm things.
      Pl try cold water bath and observe if in hot country, if pain increases use warm.
      If you have cough/cold body hot water bath will help.
      Massage and exercise in front of morning sun is good thing, pl try.
      Pl try simple acupressure given below for immediate relief.
      If it fails you will have to go for Acupuncture.

      There is hardly any medicine for H/A OR MIGRAINE. Not only these but for RA, OA, Back ache, Ear ache/ringing, Stomach ache and almost all painful diseases. Hence they become chronic.

      Acidity, WORRY, sadness, excessive wind, cold , heat, sour food and sinusitis, constipation, intestinal inflammation; drug side effects, stress, bad smell, TV & COMPUTER SOMETIMES, Blockage in the flow of Vital Energy, BODY CONSTITUTION etc are their causes.
      None of them can be treated with medicine.
      Our 100% success in treating migraine &H/A confirms it.

      Acupuncture is the best treatment.
      I can treat it with naturopathy and YOG, but how can you manage pl see.

      Pain killers don't treat the pain but we loose the sense of pain for some time; in that duration our body itself treats sometime and credit goes to meds.
      The useless drugs have tremendous power of side effects like liver/kidney failures, ulcer, inflammation of intestines and lot more.

      Avoid late sleeping if possible; worry, tension, spicy foods, sour fruits, stale bakery foods, SMOKING and alcohole.

      Sweet foods, COCOANUT WATER,sweet fruits like dates, milk, rice, SPROUTS, SALADS and good sleep will help if cough is not there. If cough use steamed pulses, salads, sprouts, honey and dates, warm water.

      But you try one herbal remedy- two drops of drumstick leaves' juice in opposite nostril if one side pains and both nostrils if full H/A will give you rescue. Betel leaf helps but it is very strong.

      If it is acute pl search a painful point (with round tipped pen/jimmy) 3-6 mm behind your thumb nail and press it, H/A will disappear within 30 seconds.

      For forehead/eye pain the points are in front of nails on the finger tips or 3-7 mm below.

      It may disappear naturally too.

  50. QUESTION:
    When I travel on airplane I start to feel like a horrible ache on my ears, then I start getting a headache?
    The headache feels like my head will explode.
    This started happening 2 years ago.
    In one month I will be traveling 8 hours on airplane
    This happened me on 3 hour flights, And I don't know what to do with this ache on this flight.
    Ive tried Tylenol and Motrin on this occasions but they don't work

    • ANSWER:
      Airplane cabins are not pressurized to sea level air pressure, they're usually pressurized to the equivalent of about 8,000 ft. Your headache is almost certainly a result of an imbalance in pressure between the air in your sinus cavities and the Eustachian tubes in the inner ear with the air in the plane. For an imbalance in pressure in your inner ear, no amount of pain killers is going to help, but there are a number of things you can do to equalize that pressure and all of them are very easy to do. For me, yawning or just moving my jaw in the right way always works. It's something that you can improve with practice (you can even try it on the ground) and when you get it right, you should hear when the Eustachian tubes open up (the best way I can describe what it sounds like for me is that it's like a brief burst of the static you hear on a radio when it's tuned between stations, but coming from inside my head rather than outside). Swallowing, chewing gum, and eating or drinking also works for a lot of people. When the plane descends, if none of those other suggestions help, you can try something called a valsalva maneuver where you pinch your nose closed then try to force air out through your nose (theoretically, that really only works at the end of the flight when the plane is descending, but some people think it helps on the ascent as well).

      The pressure in your sinus cavities (in your cheeks, behind your nose and in your forehead) should equalize without any assistance, but if you have a cold or sinus congestion when you get on the plane, the cavities won't be able to equalize and you'll feel an increase in pressure inside your head as the plane ascends. The best remedy for that kind of problem is a nasal decongestant to keep your sinuses clear so they can equalize on their own. If you frequently experience milder versions of the kind of headache you mentioned just during your day-to-day activities, you may have some sort of congenital inflammation in your sinuses (essentially a permanent case of sinusitis) that could keep your sinuses from equalizing in pressure, in which case you should see a doctor to see if there's anything that can be done.

    • ANSWER:
      Home Remedies for getting rid of acne and other skin care remedies

      a hugely popular remedy for getting rid of acne is using a 100% natural soap called African Black Soap; loaded with Vitamin A &E; it reduces acne breakouts by reducing oiliness, kills the bacteria that causes acne; can also reduce the appearance of scarring.

      Remedy for oily skin: make a homemade mask by combining one egg white and a teaspoon of lemon juice. Apply mask and rinse with warm water after 20 minutes

      For softer skin, steam your face over boiling water (drape a towel over head to hold in steam); remove dead skin with a loofah, drink lots of water

      To rid blackheads, mix cornstarch with vinegar, plaster on the area for 15-30 minutes; wash off with washcloth and warm water.

      Put cold, cooked oatmeal on your face, it can help give you nicer skin (submitted by laura)

      Run out of shaving cream to shave your legs? Use hair conditioner. It makes legs nice and smooth too.

      Also try your favorite body wash

      To get rid of that fake tan from the tanning bottle that you may have messed up: 1/4 cup of lemon juice, 1/2 cup sugar, loofah and scrub. (You may have heard that on "The Wedding Planner.")

      To help skin glow, place hot towels on skin for 10 minutes, then splash face with cold water 10 times

      To help dry out your acne without drying out your face, put a thin layer of Phillips Milk of Magnesia over your face. It works great (submitted by visitor).

      rub cucumber peel (wet side up) on your face and leave on overnight to cure acne(submitted by visitor)

      (visitor recommendation) ~ For the smoothest skin ever... trust me I have psoriasis and it is nearly impossible to find a moisturizer that works... after a shower or bath spread vaseline over your entire body (or wherever you wish) , it's a very greasy feeling but be patient. let it soak into your skin for about an hour or more if u can handle it, while sitting on a towel. this works so well that you only need to do it once or twice a month.

  16. QUESTION:
    Any natural home remedies to help with acne problems?
    Does anybody know any natural home remedies to help acne? I'm 22 well out of puberty and i still break out pretty bad.

    • ANSWER:
      Here's a quick home remedy for you:

      ** Wash your face and rinse thoroughly. Squeeze a fresh lemon
      into a small bowl and put the juice on a cotton ball. Apply
      a cotton ball to face. Repeat soaking of a cotton ball in
      lemon juice as needed. Let the lemon juice dry on your face
      for about 10 minutes then rinse with cool water. The lemon
      juice should make your face sting or mildly burn. If you
      have sensitive skin, you may wish to dilute juice with
      water. Follow this procedure one to two times per day and
      you will notice amazing results within 14 days.**

      And here are a few extra tips to help control your acne.

      1) Washing with very hot water, harsh soaps or cleansers will
      not improve existing acne or prevent future flare-ups they
      will only irritate them.

      2) Thorough cleansing is the first and most important step in
      any skin care program. Deep cleansing is recommended twice
      a day, in the morning and at night. This assures removal of
      surface impurities, rests of makeup and excessive oiliness.

      3) Ideal cleansing is completed by application of a toner or
      refreshing lotion. This kind of product prepares the skin
      for the use of moisturizers and lubricants.

      4) The last basic step is to apply a good moisturizer, which
      will keep your skin soft, and protect it from the
      aggressive environmental assaults that it's exposed every
      day.

      5) Be sure to clean your face thoroughly before going to bed
      at night and apply a good night time moisturizer.

A person with gout must consume about ten to fifteen cherries in a day to get relief from recurrent attacks of gout. Cherry juice is also very beneficial. Drinking a whole glass of cherry juice at least once a day proves to be very beneficial.

      Diet for Gout - Apples are also very good for the treatment of gout. A person with gout complaints must eat at least one apple per day for obtaining relief.

      Safflower has properties in treatment of gout. Take safflower in capsule form to fasten your healing process. This is one of the useful gout home remedies.

      If you have gout in your toes, then the following remedy can be used to seek relief. Take one-third cup of ground ginger in a bath tub and soak your affected foot in it for 30 minutes. This will cause you to sweat and uric acid will be eliminated. After this, make sure that you bathe thoroughly or ginger may cause skin irritation after the body dries. This is one of the effective home remedy for gout.

      Squeeze the juice of half a lemon in a glassful of water. Drink this juice thrice a day in morning, noon and night at regular intervals. Lemon is also a very rich source of vitamin C, which helps in dissolving the gouty deposits. This is one of the efficient natural remedy for gout.

      Drink 6-8 ounces glasses of fluid a day. This will not only reduce gout attacks a day but also wash out the urate crystals from the system and prevent you from developing kidney stones.

      Extract half a cup of juice of French beans. Drink this juice for a month everyday once or twice. You will find immense relief in the pains of gout and the inflammation will be reduced. This is one of the useful home remedies for gout.

      Take mustard and grind it to powder. Then take one part of the mustard powder and mix it with one part of whole wheat powder. Add a little amount of water to it, just to make a pasty consistency. Apply this paste on achy regions and leave overnight.

      Take two teaspoons of organic apple cider vinegar with two teaspoons of honey (twice a day). Within a few hours the pain will be minimized.

      Gout remedy - There are some exercises you can do in order to seek relief from the pains of gouts. However, the exercises must be done regularly, and must focus on the affected joints. Stretching joints and muscles help you to maintain a range of motion. Exercise by putting each joint through full motion. Perform such exercises 2-3 times a day for at least fifteen minutes each time.

      Bananas serve a good remedy for curing gout. Consume 3-4 bananas a day. Bananas are rich in minerals like phosphorus which can chemically react with the uric acid deposits and eliminate them from the system.

      Increase the intake of citrus fruits, berries, tomatoes, green pepper and leafy green vegetables which have high content of vitamin C. They reduce inflammation produced in gouts. The amalaki (Indian Gooseberry) is one of the richest sources of vitamin C. Make it a point to eat about three to four fresh fruits of this herb on a daily basis. This is one of the best diet for gout.

      Home remedy for gout - Simple water can also help to a great extent in curing gout. Drink excess of water that is eight to ten glasses per day as they will cause the toxic uric acid to flow away and this will reduce its level.

      Soak the feet in Epsom salt if the pain is concentrated in big toe. Add two cups of Epsom salt in warm water; soak the feet in it and keep it till the water starts losing its heat.

      Soak a piece of white flannel cloth in warm castor oil and place it over the affected areas. Wrap it with plastic and apply heating pads. This is one of the important home remedies for gout.

      Black cherry really works wonders with gout pains. Drink concentrated juice of black cherry at regular intervals throughout the day. This will relieve you from the pain.

      Alfalfa is a good source of minerals that helps to reduce the content of serum uric acid. This prevents the deposition and future conditions of gout. This is an effective gout cure.

      Increase the amount of strawberries in your diet. Strawberries are rich sources of vitamin C. However, the strawberries must be fresh, and several of them must be eaten per day. This is one of the useful gout remedy.

      If you want a quick remedy for your gout pains, then a very convenient way is to apply ice on the affected regions. This will reduce the pains immediately, but this remedy is only temporary. You will need some other remedy to remove the deposits from the internal system.

      Boil one tea-spoon of pepper in one cup of vinegar and one cup of water, dab this mixtu

    Hello there! I am a contributor for a teen site. I will be writing an article about home remedies for zits/pimples. I know I can research about it and I have already researched. I just want to hear more from real people since articles can be sometimes flawed and bias.

    • ANSWER:
      Honey and lemon mask was probably the best for me. Honey kills the bacteria and helps moisturize the skin and lemon drys up pimples and allows the skin to shed itself. Then I follow that with a bit of cucumber to help calm the redness. Also, using lemon juiceon it's on is good for acne and post acne marks. Another good home remedy is using potatoe juice. Potatoe juice contains sulfur which is great for breakouts. Using an egg white mask is perfect for acne as well. It tighens pores and helps brighten the skn.

    I have a 12 wk old yellow lab puppy and she has mange. I would like to know some effective home remedies that will cure this. She is shedding and always scratching her hair is starting to fall out as well. We have tried medicated shampoo and other treatments and nothing seems to work and its getting very expensive. So if you know of anything that may be cheaper that will solve this problem please let me know. And please explain and be thorough.

    • ANSWER:
      If you have not gotten a diagnosis from a vet, how do you even know you are dealing with Mange?

      You need to start with a diagnosis, and unfortunately, there is NO home remedy if it is Mange.

      If you had started at the vet in the first place, it would not have been expensive at all. Now you get to pay a lot more than if you had made the right decision the first time.

      Live and learn. Take your dog to the vet.

  22. QUESTION:
    What home remedies can you use for fungus on yellow toenails?
    I have notice that my toenails have recently started changing into yellowish color is there like any home remedies to fix it? And like this white buildup is making my toenails thick.

    • ANSWER:
      Okay just search google for random ideas. But let me tell you this. Getting rid of toenail fungus takes constant applications for 6 months to a year. Seriously. That's how long it takes to get rid of it. So before it gets worse, and before you try stuff that probably don't work, just go and buy an OTC fungal cream for toenails since you KNOW that will work. Don't waste your time.
      If you want to experiment the only 'home remedy' is tea tree oil, but this is very irritating to a lot of people and you have to be careful about the 'dosage' you apply. Plus keep your nails clean and dry obviously.

      The OTC stuff can only be applied to 2 or POSSIBLY 3, but I think 2 is the maximum you can treat at a time. Over the entire year/half year. So run out now and get some!! Before you get it in your other toes!
      If it gets into all 5 you will be at it for a possible 3 years!!

  24. QUESTION:
    what home remedies can do to get rid of a urinary infection?
    i suffer from urinary infections and its very uncomfortable...but its a drag to go to the doctor every time i have one and i was wondering what home remedies i can do to get rid of the infection without having to go visit the doctor every time. thanks in advance!

    • ANSWER:
      No home remedy's for a UTI. You need an antibotic. Theres no way around it and if you don't get on one, you will get worse.

      I was plagued with UTI's for years. I ended up with an acute case of Pyelonephritis - infection of the kidney. I ended up seeing a Urologist who kept me on an antibiotic for about 3 months until I had a negative urine culture. It worked. I have not had a UTI in over 15 years.

      Also, this is a little personal but, good hygiene is very important. I use a non-perfumed very simple soap to clean my peri area. I use Ivory bar soap. No pefumes, no deoderants. It's a gentle soap. Dove uncented is another safe one. The liquid soaps tend to have preservatives in them and sometimes a glucose type base which isn't good. I suggest bar soaps.

      I suggest seeing a Urologist. That way you can get this taken care of once and for al.

  25. QUESTION:
    What are some good at-home remedies for sinus congestion?
    It's cold and flu season, and I was wondering if anyone knew any simple at home remedies for sinus congestion. Please help me get rid of this headache! Lol.

    • ANSWER:
      Nasal or sinus congestion occurs when the nasal passage gets stuffed and blocked due to a swelling of the mucous membranes that line the nose. Some of the sinus congestion causes are inflamed blood vessels and other factors like cold, flu, allergies, overuse of nasal sprays, and so on. Sinus congestion home remedies include mixing a few drops of oil of oregano with some juice and drinking this liquid on a daily basis.
      Oil of oregano has been used to relieve sinus congestion or even lung congestion for ages as it also aids in strengthening the immune system of the body. Similarly, sinus congestion relief could also be achieved by using tea tree oil which is commonly used as a natural curing agent for various types of infectious organisms such as bacteria, fungus, virus and the like. Herbal remedies for sinus congestion includes the use of the Echinacea herb.
      This herb tends to stimulate the production of white blood cells and also accelerate their maturation within the lymphatic tissue. Besides this it also helps in speeding up their movement to the area of infection where these white blood cells can then fight the external invaders in the body. One of the most effective sinus congestion home remedies is steam inhalation which helps provide relief from painful sinus congestion and pressure by thinning the mucus so that it can be easily expelled.
      Hence those suffering from nasal or sinus congestion should chew on a few pieces of freshly chopped ginger or a clove of garlic to get relief from sinus congestion. Temporary relief from the symptoms of sinus congestion may be gained by applying a hot compress or a warm towel to one’s face, over the cheekbones and eyes. Consumption of pungent or spicy food also helps relieve the symptoms of sinus congestion as they tend to open up the nasal passages. Some home remedies for sinus congestion include the physical manipulation of the nasal area to achieve relief. In some cases, it is believed that by pressing the tongue against the roof of one’s mouth and then alternately gently pressing on a particular point between the eyes tends to allow better drainage of the mucus. This would thereby provide proper relief from sinus congestion. Additionally, one of the most popular and effective remedies for sinus congestion is a saline spray which requires a few drops of saline to be directly dropped into the nasal passages.

  27. QUESTION:
    What is the best stye home remedies?
    I need good home remedies for a stye in your eye. It starts outside, then grows to the inside. They can be very uncomfortable and painful. We used to have this cream, but haven't been able to get it. Doctors want you to try new things. We have been doing warm compresses, but she is still rather uncomfortable. Any and all home remedies would be appreciated. Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      Natural and herbal remedies for sties include:

      Placing a teabag over the closed eye for approximately 4 hours or apply a teabag for 10 minutes at time several times throughout the day
      Soaking a clove in water and apply to the infected eye for effective pain relief
      Placing warm guava leaves in a damp, warm cloth and apply to eyes
      Cut an aloe leaf lengthwise and apply the fleshy side of the leaf to the eye to reduce swelling and discomfort
      Preparing a compress from boiled acacia leaves
      Boiling coriander leaves in water to create a rinse for the infected eye
      Mixing triphala powder in water and let the mixture stand 8 - 10 hours before using it as wash for the infected eye
      Make a poultice of grated potatoes to reduce inflammation
      Combining alum granules in a cup of water and use as an eye wash

      A stye will normally begin to drain and heal after several days of continued treatment. As the swelling subsides, so will a lot of the discomfort that accompanies it. However, if a stye lasts longer than 10 days or recurs often, a person should seek medical attention to be sure that it is only a stye and not a sign of another underlying illness.
      POTATO:

      We know that potatoes are a staple in many kitchens, but what you may not realize is that potatoes work quite well as a home remedy for a stye.

      In this instance, taking a potato and turning it into a paste can be helpful. Once the paste is developed, it should be lightly rubbed on the eye. This will eliminate swelling and irritation quickly and effectively.

  28. QUESTION:
    Are there any home remedies to cure tapeworm in cats?
    i have 4 cats, and ive noticed that 2 of them have tapeworm segments.... I can't afford to take them to the vet... are there any home remedies that wll work on them. Or any inexpensive tapeworm removel pills i can buy? Thanks
    so if i were to get the praziquantel tapeworm treatment for cats... it wont work? i have flea medication also.
    thanks to the few of you who are not being completely rude.

    • ANSWER:
      No, there are no "home remedies". But If you're ABSOLUTELY SURE it's tapeworm PetSmart sells Tradewinds Praziquantel which kills tapeworm. Give one tablet to each of your cats. But you'll need to buy two bottles as the .99 each bottles only come with three tabs.

      You also need to get these cats on a regular flea preventative so they don't end up with this happening again. Cats get tapeworm by ingesting a flea that contains the larvae. You should also be scooping the poop EVERY TIME YOUR CATS GO as these segments will come out in the poop and then can be stepped on and ingested when the cat licks its paw - creating a new tapeworm.

      Why do you have four cats if you can't afford to care for them? What will happen if they end up sick or injured? I do hope you're at least keeping them indoors where the likelihood of injury/illness is far less likely? You may want to consider surrendering these cats to a no-kill shelter and not getting pets in the future if you can't afford to care for them.

  29. QUESTION:
    Do you face problems with your doctors and prefer our ancient home remedies which are more natural?
    Our ancient home remedies are believed to be very natural, side effect free, effective and healthy.
    Do you agree with this ??
    Do you feel that if some Home Remedy guide comes handy then you will first follow it rather than going to your doctor??

    • ANSWER:
      No they are not side effect free. Natural does not mean safe.

      And ancient does not mean effective. That's why we have modern medicine.

      Home remedies are risky - especially where proper medical care is needed. I would not consult a Home remedy "guide", rather I would go to proper medical sources - and remember that self diagnosis is not always a good idea.

  30. QUESTION:
    What are some home remedies to treat a yeast infection?
    I think I have a yeast infection, but I don't want to get any medicine or go to the doctor. Are they any home remedies to threat a yeast infection? Will it just go away by itself?

    • ANSWER:
      Tea Tree Oil

      A few drops of tea tree oil poured on a tampon and inserted in the vagina can provide some relief. It is important to dilute the oil before using it as tea tree oil is extremely potent and can cause inflammation if it is used in its undiluted form. Tea tree oil can be diluted by mixing a few drops of this oil along with a teaspoon of olive oil or sweet almond oil. Tea tree oil has anti fungal properties and will help to control the yeast infection as well as reduce yeast infection symptoms such as itching. Tea tree oil is one of the most effective vaginal yeast infection home remedies but it is necessary to first consult your doctor as some women may have an adverse reaction to this oil. Tea tree oil can also be used as a male yeast infection cure.
      Garlic

      For non-vaginal yeast infections, you can apply garlic paste directly on the affected parts. This remedy is for other affected parts of the body and not for the vaginal yeast infection. If you do not have fresh garlic, you can dilute garlic oil along with Vitamin E oil and a few drops of coconut oil and apply this blend of oils to the affected skin. While garlic oil helps to control the infection, Vitamin E oil helps to fortify the skin and coconut oil helps to provide it with several fatty acids that help to prevent the infection from spreading. Yeast infection home cures can be used alongside other treatments to help speed up the recovery process.
      Cold Coconut Oil and Cinnamon Oil

      These are two of the best natural cures for yeast infections in both men and women. Cold coconut oil or cinnamon oil can be applied on the infected areas 2-3 times a day to get rid of a yeast infection. Both these oils have effective anti-fungal properties which are very helpful in killing the yeast.
      Vinegar

      A hot sitz bath along with some added vinegar is a great way to relieve skin irritation and itching caused by a yeast infection. It is also an effective remedy to arrest the growth of yeast and restore the PH balance in the body.

    What home remedies could I try to get rid of heartburn during pregnancy?
    I'm 32 weeks pregnant and I just ran out of my prescription of my heartburn pills, My doctor is on holidays until next week.. I've been suffering since last night. Does anyone know of any home remedies that could help me out, tums and acid chewables is all that i've been taking and not doing the trick and just leaving a gross taste in my mouth.

    • ANSWER:
      Okay but this is a last resort, if nothing else works home remedy. I know because I did it before, when I ran out of my heart burn prescription. You take a teaspoon of baking soda and mix it in a cup of warm water and chug it. The heart burn will relieve itself shortly after but it does it in the most unconventional way. Lucky for me, my husband was in Iraq when I tried it, so he didn't have to smell the burps that came out of my mouth. They were the most horrible, egg smelling, nasty burps ever, I mean have to brush your teeth afterward horrible. It did get rid of the heartburn, but I have never done it again and prob will not ever do it again. :-) Best of luck.

    Please dont be mean about this question.

    • ANSWER:
      You are asking people to not be mean and yet you post the most ignorant question that I have seen all night. Do you ever think before you post a question? The answer is none, there are no "home remedies", no techniques, no pills, no stretches and no devices that can make your penis bigger. There is only surgery and the sooner that you stop comparing yourself to the guys in all the porn that you watch, feeling insecure and then spending unwarranted amount of time trying to make yourself bigger, the better.

    Any easy home remedies to whiten teeth quickly before school starts in a week?
    I have light yellow teeth and I brush my teeth at least 2 times a day. I sometimes drink tea and rarely any coffee. School starts in less than a week or about, and I want my teeth to be a little bit more white. Any home remedies without going to the dentist or having to go to the store to buy something?

    If not, then please list any things I can buy for a CHEAP price that is very effective.

    • ANSWER:
      The baking soda solution in the previous answer is a good one, but you can make it better by mixing the baking soda with a little hydrogen peroxide, which you can buy for very little in any pharmacy,

      Make a paste with the peroxide and the baking soda, and brush with that. Just be realistic. There is a reason why the makers of expensive commercial products can get away with charging so much. They work better than cheap home remedies. Still, if your teeth are only light yellow, baking soda and hydrogen peroxide may be all you need, so it iis worth giving that a try.

  39. QUESTION:
    What are some really good home remedies for acne?
    I have acne. It's not mild but not extreme.. I've been scrubbing my face each night with Noxema and it's not helping at all. Are there any home remedies that I can whip up with stuff just lying around the house that actually WORKS? Thanks.

    • ANSWER:
      Hi, I am a DIY person :) so I am always looking for homemade stuff instead of buying.

      I looked into the matter and I found out many natural home remedies for acne. Most of them will help your skin heal from the damage caused by your acne, but they won't cure the acne.

      But I didn't give up. One theory that made sense to me is that you need to treat the internal problem causing acne. That is - hormonal imbalances, toxines etc..

      How can you do that? - Primarily you must help the liver, the pancreas and the kidney.

      I am currently using "Apple Cider Vinegar" which is a natural cure for acne.

      Apple Cider Vinegar is an effective natural agent that cures acne by killing the bacteria and balancing our skin's pH level (which is a measure of acidity). It also absorbs excessive oil from our skin, which is a leading cause of acne.

      In the spring I will take a Dandelion cure.

      Dandelion shuns wet places, it has two outstanding qualities: it is useful in disorders of the liver and of the gallbladder.
      Dandelion and Stinging Nettle have a blood purifying effect. They aide the functions of the liver and the pancreas, thus reducing the hormonal imbalances in the body.

      Infusion: 1 heaped tablespoon of roots is soaked in cold water overnight, brought to the boil and strained next day. This amount is apportionately sipped, half an hour before and half an hour after breakfast.

      I also recommend a Nettle cure as an acne remedy.

      - Wear gloves when handling fresh nettle plants.
      - Remove leaves from stems and discard stems.
      - Fill a teapot full of nettle leaves
      - Pour boiling water over the leaves.
      - Steep for 5 minutes.
      - Add honey and/or lemon if desired and drink.

      The tea will be somewhat bitter. However, it is quite nutritious an especially high in calcium.

      Other quick homemade acne treatments I found to keep your skin clean:

      1. Garlic is an excellent treatment for acne, in case you did not know. Just rub with a garlic clove cut in two over the acne, or cut into slivers a garlic clove and apply over acne with a plaster, leaving overnight to act;

      2. Onion is a good apprentice in the fight against acne and its traces when it disappears. Make a puree with the blender and apply it as a facial mask once a week;

      3. Lemon juice applied to skin helps to close pores, and to increase the brightness of skin;

      4. Baking soda mixed with vegetal soap (preferably soap made only from olive oil or vegetable oil) is the best antibacterial scrub the skin;

      5. Mixture of fine sea salt to whites of an egg is very good for sensitive skin attacked by acne. Apply as a mask and remove easily with circular movements;

      6. Honey can be applied as a mask for acne skin;

      7. Vinegar is a good tonic antiseptic for acne, acting very gentle if you mix in equal proportion with water or green tea;

      8. Yogurt is very effective and safe for skin prone to acne. Apply directly from the jar, let it react 5-10 minutes, then rinse;

      9. Cut a gauze circle about the size of the face, soak it in fresh made green tea (very hot but not boiling) and apply on face. Let dry and remove carefully;

      10. Herbs such as echinacea, rosemary, dill and parsley are great for teas and infusions wich purify the skin.

  40. QUESTION:
    Does anyone have any home remedies for cirrhosis of the liver?
    My grandfather just found out that he has cirrhosis of the liver and he is waiting for treatment. I was looking for any home remedies for the time being while he waits for his appointment. Doctors take so long and i'm worried that this may be able to be controlled but the doctors appointments take so long that they might not be able to help him.

    • ANSWER:
      I'm sorry to say there is no home remedies that is going to help him. There is no cure for cirrhosis and all the doctors can do is treat the symptoms and try to either make the disease stop progressing any further or at least slow it down. The doctor is probably going to tell him to avoid alcohol and some medications that might hurt his liver further. He will also probably be told to go on a low salt diet. They might want to do some testing on him and he should get routine blood work done to let them know if there is a real problem they should address. The doctor will probably give him some medicine to take to help control any symptoms that could be bothering him.

      I don't know how old your grandfather is or what caused his cirrhosis. I don't know if transplant would be an option for him or not. He might not need one yet. All these things are why he needs a doctor and no home remedies. One person mentioned Milk Thistle. Even though Milk Thistle has shown to be good for the liver, it will not help someone with serious liver disease such as cirrhosis. You are just going to have to be patient and let the doctor take care of your grandfather. I wish him the best.

    • ANSWER:
      Ear Infections and Aches
      Ear troubles occur mostly due to bad cold. Sometimes the child will refuse to eat and may pull his ear. Never neglect a bad ear. Most of the cases of deafness can be due to ear infections in the early years.
      Many young children are partially deaf because of blows they have received on the side of the head. These blows can easily damage the delicate hearing mechanism. Sometimes children stuff some foreign object into the ear canal and then forget all about it. After a few days the child may complain of earache and there may be foul discharge.
      During childhood, ear infections occur after measles, chicken pox, mumps, or the common cold. Chronic tonsillitis and other infections may spread to the Eustachian tube and cause pus to accumulate in the middle ear cavity, which is known as otitis media.
      Wax normally protects the ear canal from infection and injury, but when too much wax is present it should be gently removed. Do not attempt to dig the wax out yourself. You may puncture the drum and produce a middle ear infection, which might lead to permanent loss of hearing.
      Sometimes the ear canal becomes badly swollen and infected particularly after prolonged swimming. This is known as otitis externa. There is severe pain and there may be tender lymph nodes behind the ear and in the neck.
      Older people with nerve deafness often complain of ringing in the ears. Nerve deafness may also arise from hardening of the arteries. As the condition progresses, the patient may not be able to distinguish between such common sounds as the ringing of the doorbell, the tickling of the watch, or the sound of the telephone.
      Other causes of nerve deafness arise from skull fractures following falls and traffic accidents, especially if it involved auditory, or hearing nerve, or the blood vessels leading to the inner ear.

      HOME REMEDIES FOR EAR INFECTIONS AND ACHES
      ·Take some garlic juice and pour the juice in the ear it will help to relieve the pain. Garlic is a natural antibiotic.
      ·If the pain is due to altitude change, just chew gum or yawn to relieve the pain.
      ·If pain is due to swimming, usually called, swimmer's ear, put some mineral oil in before going in the water. This should protect the condition.
      ·One drop of alcohol after bathing can prevent excessive earwax.
      ·Take two cloves of Garlic. Remove the skin. Heat them with two spoons of Mustard Oil when the garlic starts turning black (burning) then turn off the heat. Sieve the contents. When the oil becomes lukewarm, then using a cotton swab, put 2 to 4 drops in the aching ear.
      ·Make a poultice of onions and it will help to cure the earache within 10 minutes.
      ·Deep-breathing exercises are effective for earaches and other pain, because they oxygenate the body, strengthen the immune system and open blockages.
      ·Grind a few Holy basil leaves and extract some juice. Apply 2 drops inside the ear.
      ·Boil 3-4 cloves of Garlic in some water. Mash them and add a pinch of salt. Wrap this poultice in a flannel or woolen cloth and place on the aching ear
      ·Drops of tea tree oil may be effective in reducing the earache.
      ·Blow the nose, one at a time and gently.
      ·Keep your ears free of moisture after swimming or bathing because a dry ear is unlikely to become infected. After swimming or showering, shake your head to remove water from the ear canal.
      ·Feed infants in upright position to prevent milk getting into the Eustachian tubes. Do not allow infants to fall asleep with a bottle in mouth.
      ·Take a sock; fill it with salt, heat until it is warm and tolerable to body. Lay your head on it. This may drain the fluid out.
      ·Use a nasal spray if nose is congested this will help to reduce the earache.
      ·Breathe in deeply from your diaphragm, not your chest, bringing air in through your nose.
      ·Pinch your nose and push your tongue against the back part of the roof of your mouth, this will work a little air through your Eustachian tubes without damage.
      ·Press a warm water bottle or warm bag of salt against the ear. This will help to ease ear pain.
      ·Otikon, an extract made of various plants, including garlic and St. John's Wort, is an effective anesthetic in treating the pain associated with ear infections.
      ·Take some garlic oil and put 3 drops of grape seed extract in it and then put it in the ear. It will help to relieve the pain in the ear.
      ·Take a small glass of orange juice (about 4 ounces) and added a dropper full of Echinacea tincture and 3 drops of Grapefruit Seed Extract (GSE). Take this 3 times a day to relieve any infection.
      ·Avoid smoking and passive smoke as much as possible.
      ·Take Vitamin C to help boost the immune system and fight infection. Zinc reduces ear infection.
      ·Put a few drops of hydrogen peroxide in the ear. It is especially recommended for the swimmers ear.

  46. QUESTION:
    Any natural home remedies for getting rid of a cold?
    I have a runny nose and sore throat with some sneezing. Is this a cold or alergies maybe. I'm not sure if i'm alergic to anything. Is there any good home remedies that can help?

    • ANSWER:
      HOME REMEDIES FOR COMMON COLD
      * Vitamins are most helpful in fighting against the cold as well as other diseases. Vitamin C, also known as Ascorbic Acid, is helpful in preventing the colds and it can be found in many foods such as citrus fruits, some vegetables.
      * Zinc is also helpful for cold that can cut colds short. When you first feel that you may be getting a cold, start taking zinc
      * Garlic, as well as onion, is sometimes taken for the relief of congestion and minor infections.
      * Horseradish is another herb that has an excellent property to treat sore throat and upper respiratory tract infections, reduces fever, and expels concentrations of mucus.
      * Another effective remedy for sore throat is to gargle with a strong solution of table salt and warm water. Gargle several times a day.
      * Echinacea is an herb that acts as nature's antibiotic. It helps to increase the body's immunity and thus helps in fighting against the infection and illness.
      * Goldenseal is another herb that acts as a natural antibiotic, and can be taken to help fight against the cold.
      * Add 1/4 teaspoon of table salt to about 5 ml lukewarm water. Use this solution as a nasal drop. Use 1 to 2 drops in each nostril about 3 to 4 times daily.
      * A ginger tea can be prepared by boiling ginger in normal tea. It gives relief to congested nose.
      * Drink a teaspoonful of ginger juice mixed with equal quantity of honey.
      * Take hot water in a bowl and put some Thyme leaves. Inhale vapors by covering head with a towel.
      * Add 1 tablespoon of honey, 1 shot of lemon juice, 1 shot of whiskey to a coffee cup. Fill the remainder of the coffee cup with steaming hot water, stir, and sip until cold is relieved.
      * Make hot chicken soup with lots of garlic. Have when hot. It will help unclog nasal passage.
      * Warm ¼ katori mustard; add 4-5 cloves of chopped garlic. Apply this on nose, chest and back. Cover up and sleep.
      * Boil half a bowl of water, add few drops of eucalyptus oil and inhale the steam.
      * Sage is used to cure sore throat, stuffed nose, gingivitis and coughs, is a powerful antiviral, antibacterial and antifungal. Use as a gargle.
      * Warm up coconut oil. Gently massage the coconut oil over the child’s chest for about 5 minutes. Repeat the same on the upper portion of the back. The massage should be given just before child goes to sleep.
      * Avoid sugar (even natural sources) as it can impair immune function. Orange juice contains a much higher level of sugar than vitamin C. Therefore consuming lots of orange juice during a cold may do more harm than good.
      * Chilies, especially Jalapeno, are the best, most available and most effective antiviral.
      * Elderberry has been used for centuries to treat colds and flu. Recent research indicates that elderberry fruit extract may de-activate cold and flu viruses by preventing them from replicating.
      * A diet rich in fresh fruits, vegetables, salads, low saturated fats and whole cereals will provide protection against infective organism. Raw fruits and vegetables are better than the cooked one.
      * Take 1 tbsp of fresh gooseberry juice with 1/2 tsp ginger. It is a very effective remedy. This can be taken regularly to prevent recurrence of cold.
      * A tablespoon of ajwain crushed in the palms and tied up in a thin kerchief can be used for inhalation to relieve nasal block.
      * Boil 1 tbsp of pepper powder in a cup of milk along with a pinch of turmeric. Add some sugar for taste. Drink this once a day for three days.

      http://www.home-remedies-for-you.com/blog/home-remedies-for-roaches.html

      Home remedies are the best when it comes to killing roaches. Some of the best known methods are listed below.

      Boric acid in powdered form, mixed with sugar and flour, to kill, bait and hold the mixture, respectively, is one stop solution for all your problems. Although not extremely poisonous, boric acid is only for external use and should be kept away from kids and pets.
      Dusting cocoa, boric acid and flour in the cracks and hidden areas can also help to get rid of cockroaches.
      Using roach tablets is also a good option.
      Using cockroach traps is another alternative. These traps use a sticky material to trap the cockroaches, and you can then easily kill them or dispose of them far from the house.
      The simplest method is to place water jars near walls with bait inside that will lure the roaches inside the jar, but they will not be able to get out of the jar.

    • ANSWER:
      Home Remedy for cat urine smell. This is a great recipe for removing cat urine odor from carpet. Start by blotting up as much of the urine as possible with old rags or paper towels. Next mix 3 parts water with one part vinegar and saturate the spot.Dry thoroughly using the same method mentioned above. Once dry, sprinkle the area with Baking Soda. Next mix ¾ cup of 3% hydrogen peroxide solution with one tsp. dish detergent and sprinkle over the Baking Soda. Try this first on a small inconspicuous area of the carpet to make sure the hydrogen peroxide won’t discolor your carpet. Next, use your fingers or an old brush to work the Baking Soda in. I’ve used an old hairbrush with little bits of plastic over the tips with good results. Allow this to dry and vacuum it up. If there’s still a slight odor when done, lather, rinse and repeat.

    What are home remedies for genital herpes?
    I am 7 days into my first outbreak. I just started taking medication yesterday. It burns and stings. It also seems like they are spreading. Is this normal? How long will my outbreak last? And do you know of any home remedies u can try?

    • ANSWER:
      For me the best home remedy for genital herpes is tea tree oil! when first put on, it stings like a b*itch, but trust me it works a treat. I put it on whenever i get a tingle or an itch or soreness and it seems to numb it for a few hours.
      Your first outbreak will always be the worst! this is my second outbreak in 2 years and it is not as bad as the first. try salt and warm water on the sores and where cotton underwear and non tight clothing. if it burns to pee then pee in the bath or on the toilet sit facing the opposite sit, kinda like how a man would pee standing up.
      seriously try the tea tree oil, i dont know if it will work on everybody, but for me it has been a god send. try not to scratch it and if u do touch the sores make sure ur wash ur hands thoroughly afterwards.

  6. QUESTION:
    How can I make my skin smooth and clear of blackheads etc. 10 points?
    Okay I already have pretty clear skin and barely EVER get pimples. But lately I been getting ugly black heads on my nose and cheek bones/cheeks. I also have bags under my eyes. What home remades and or face mask, moisturizers etc. The products can be expensive and inexpensive i just want some thing that will make me have beautiful smooth soft clear skin.

    • ANSWER:
      First of all, please ignore the advice of anyone telling you to squeeze, or extract blackheads on your own. If there is any bacteria trapped in the clogged pore, squeezing it can push it deeper and lead to pimples. It can also lead to scarring. Extractions should only be done by a trained professional.

      That being said, look for skincare products that contain salicylic acid. Salicylic acid will help to unclog the pores thus reducing blackheads. Clean and Clear makes a gentle black head removing scrub which contains 2% salicylic acid, it is a good product because it has synthetic micro-beads which are gentle on the skin, however any scrub or cleanser containing salicylic acid should be effective.

      For an instant fix, the biore pore strips work well at removing black heads. They work best if you use them either after steaming your face or after a hot shower (just don't wash your face with hot water) because the steam will soften the pores. To maintain skin that is free of blackheads after utilizing the pore strips, use a salicylic acid cleanser daily.

      As far as the bags under your eyes, used tea bags refrigerated and placed under the eyes can help to reduce them. Just make sure that the tea is caffeinated, green tea works really well.

      Hope this helped.

    What is the best way to keep snakes out of my yard?
    My husband killed a baby copperhead snake this morning. I really need to know how to keep snakes away. We used Snake Away for the past 3 years and never had this problem. Moth balls helps a little under the house. I have cats and that helps some. Is there anything else we can do to solve this problem? Any home remades? Any animals that will help?

    • ANSWER:
      Keep leaves raked up and hauled away. Don't have any brush or wood piles, keep shrubbery trimmed so it not going to ground making a cool place for them to hide on hot day. Feeding birds also attract snakes. I am guilty of this. If you have lots of birds, you will have snakes if you live in country. I don't think any snake repellent works it only gives you a little peace of mind.

There are also some other supplements that may also be able to help, like saw palmetto, Pygeum Africanum, MSM, and grape seed extract. I like Caribbean Hair Grow. You should talk to your doctor before you do, or take anything, and also do your own research (wikipedia, pubmed, etc.) as well. Hope this helps...

  14. QUESTION:
    what can be used for darker skin complextions with acne scars?
    hello, i am an 17 year old african american girl with acne scars andi mean they are darker then my SKIN it sucks! i have tried most over the counter products and im looking for some home remades that can help me. i've heard of vitamin E, lemon, apple cider vinegar..ETC but i just need some more advice.

    • ANSWER:
      There are a lot of different products you could use to help lighten the scars, but the question is whether they are going to work or not. I had a similar problem myself about a year ago. I had acne scars in a few different places on my face, and it finally got to the point that I could not deal with it anymore, I was determined to find a product that actually worked.

      Thankfully, I came across a product called, Skin Soho Spot Creme. This product is amazing, I don't know what I would have done if I did not find it because it has done wonders for my scars. They are considerably lighter, to the point that they are pretty much gone! I highly, highly recommend this product, it is a little pricey not too bad, but it is sooo worth it. It gave me my confidence back, and that's something that you can't really put a price on.

      You should definitely check it out, take a look at the product, and on the site you can also find other customer reviews, and I can promise you that you will not be disappointed if you purchase this product.

      Here's the link: http://www.fairandflawlessskin.com/shop/tapioca-spot-creme.asp?utm_source=ans&utm_medium=pv&utm_campaign=ff
      Hope this is helpful for you.

  17. QUESTION:
    Any tips to help deal with motion sickness?
    I'm going on a trip tomorrow, it's a really long bus ride and I'm going with my school. I don't want to get sick on it but I often suffer from motion sickness.

    I was wondering if any one knew any home remades to help, preferably something I can take before the trip? Thanks.

    • ANSWER:
      Try to sit in the front of the bus: the motion isn't so bad and you can see out of the front window which also helps.

      Don't read, watch a movie or play a video game. If you focus on something that doesn't move this makes the motion sickness worse. In stead talk or listen to music, and keep looking outside.

      Dramamine is a popular over the counter drug you can take. For nausea you can also take cola syrup (or just plain cola sodas).

      Hope you get through it ok :-)

  18. QUESTION:
    I have a leopard gecko and i do not know if it is gut compaction?
    My leopard gecko is largish around the stomach area when compared to my other one. Also it's stomach is firmer then my other one. What should i do because i do not have the money at the moment to go to the vets, is there any home remades for this? I really do not want it to die and it is my first time of keeping it.

    • ANSWER:
      Okay. Also look for bluey discolouration. It's true if its not eating it probably is gut impaction. HOWEVER 3 days wait is too long.
      Other symptoms are being listless and drinking much more than usual.

      It can be caused by overfeeding and ingesting substrate, such as bark or sand. this is paticularly true if it is calcium sand. although this is manufactured as 'safe' its not and causes impaction if ingested which is likley as the gecko needs the calcium. I suggest swiching to paper toweling or repticarpet, or at least somthing it cant swallow :)

      THE REMEDY:

      Okay, impaction is quite serious. but please dont panic. A vet cant do much and will only tell you the following;

      Prepare a tray or tank with no more than 2 inches of WARM not hot water,. Place your gecko in it for about 5 mins. this will help soften things in his gut and encourage him to poo. Hopefully this can clear the impaction. repeat for a few days to make sure its all gone.

      If you notice it starts to lose weight rapidly you may need to take it to a vets, but please be prepared that there isnt much a vet can do and somtimes its best to do whats right by the animal.

      To stop it from happening again be careful witht eh amount you feed and the substrate you use.

      I wish you and your pet the best of luck :)

  19. QUESTION:
    How do I feel more comfortable when sleeping?
    When I wake up in the morning, I usually feel tired, and sick. I also have a hard time going to sleep. Any suggestion would help. Just nothing like, 'Take this' or 'Take that', no, some kind of meditation, home remade e, I don't care, just something!

    • ANSWER:
      To live, we need salt. But if you were to eat a kilogram of salt it would kill you. To live in the modern world you need a car but if you don't follow the traffic rules or if you drive while you are drunk, a car becomes a dangerous machine. Meditation is like this, it is essential for our mental health and well-being but if you practice in a stupid way, it could cause problems. Some people have problems like depression, irrational fears or schizophrenia, they think meditation is an instant cure for their problem, they start meditating and sometimes their problem gets worse. If you have such a problem, you should seek professional help and after you are better then take up meditation. Other people over reach themselves, they take up meditation and instead of going gradually, step by step, they meditate with too much energy for too long and soon they are exhausted. But perhaps most problems in meditation are caused by ''kangaroo meditation'. Some people go to one teacher and do his meditation technique for a while, then they read something in a book and decide to try that technique, then a week later a famous meditation teacher visits town and so they decide to incorporate some of his ideas into their practice and before long they are hopelessly confused. Jumping like a kangaroo from one teacher to another or from one meditation technique to another is a mistake. But if you don't have any severe mental problem and you take up meditation and practice sensibly it is one of the best things you can do for yourself.

      You would follows these easy steps: the four Ps place, posture, practice and problems. First, find a suitable place, perhaps a room that is not too noisy and where you are not likely to do disturbed. Second, sit in a comfortable posture. A good posture is to sit with your legs folded, a pillow under your buttocks, your back straight, the hands nestled in the lap and the eyes closed. Alternatively, you can sit in a chair as long as you keep your back straight. Next comes the actual practice itself. As you sit quietly with your eyes closed you focus your attention on the in and out movement of the breath. This can be done by counting the breaths or watching the rise and fall of the abdomen. When this is done, certain problems and difficulties will arise. You might experience irritating itches on the body or discomfort in the knees. If this happens, try to keep the body relaxed without moving and keep focusing on the breath. You will probably have many intruding thoughts coming into your mind and distracting your attention from the breath. The only way you can deal with this problem is to patiently keep returning your attention to the breath. If you keep doing this, eventually thoughts will weaken, your concentration will become stronger and you will have moments of deep mental calm and inner peace.

      Thank you very much. wish it must help you...

  22. QUESTION:
    how to lighten black hair without bleaching?
    i have asian black hair with dark red highlights here and there when i tried to dye it. what are some easy ways i can lighten my black hair so when i do dye it the color doesnt look like highlights. if i could get it a dark brown that would work for i dont want to go really light colored like blonde. i would prefer not to go to a salon though. if u know of any home remades that could work please tell me.

    • ANSWER:
      You can use a home bleaching kid and only leave the bleach on for about 10 minutes (depending on the product). Usually with home bleach the longer you leave it on the lighter it will become. 10 minutes should make it only slightly lighter, if at all. (The only time I ever bleached my hair was when I put "home" bleach on my tips. My hair is medium blonde, and leaving it on for about 25 minutes made it slightly lighter blonde). You can experiment with leaving it on different amounts of time until you get the shade of brown you want.

    • ANSWER:
      Place into a bowl or the sink run some cold water and sprinkle some normal household salt onto the stain, give it a gentle rub or scrub around it then just put it onto a normal wash, also it maybe a good idea to add some liquid stain remover into the machine, and this should be done while the stain is fresh, or make sure you don't put it into hot water as that will just set the stain.

  36. QUESTION:
    quick home remade for gettin rid of pimples?
    iam lookin for a quick home remade i know theres no over night ones i jus want sumthin quick

    • ANSWER:
      Gather all materials beforehand -- see "Things You'll Need" below. You might want to store them in a waterproof resealable bag, such as Ziploc. I'd recommend wearing either old clothes or a bathrobe over whatever you are wearing. There is a definite possibility this is going to spill. After you have found everything on you checklist, head to a large, flat, waterproof surface. This is probably your bathroom. Having this room be private is highly advised; you can't just say, "Get out, I'm flattening a pimple," can you?

      Things You'll Need
      - 3 or more cotton balls
      - Lukewarm tap water
      - Cup to hold the water in
      - Salt

      The Method
      1. Salt the water thoroughly -- much more than you think it needs.
      2. Dip one cotton ball in the salt water.
      3. Wait for 30 - 60 seconds.
      4. Squeeze out excess water out until it is damp, but not dripping.
      5. Place the damp cotton ball over your large, oh-my-goodness-I-cannot-go-to-... zit. If you have several of these grouped together, try to place the cotton ball over them all.
      6. Glance at your watch/clock. Wait exactly three minutes.
      7. Remove the cotton ball after the time is up. The zit seems to be nearly gone, but it is only the top that has dissolved. Your acne is still there.
      8. Take the other two cotton balls and place them on either side of the despised pimple.
      9. Slowly, move them closer together until the tiny bump is flattened. Congrats! You've just conquered that giant of a pimple -- forever!
      10. Apply honey on the infected area & go to sleep!!

      Tips
      *Don't forget the last 3 steps -- they are crucial.
      *Be sure to follow these steps closely. Dipping a cottonball in fresh water as opposed to salt will not work, for instants.
      * You might want to bring a book -- either waterproof or one that you do not care about being splattered in water. Those three minutes can get boring.
      * This is your best bet for monster zits that simply sneak up on you. For long-term healthy skin, cleansing and toning is also important.

      Warnings
      * Please, PLEASE, do not assume this is permission to "pop" pimples. Doing so can cause major scarring. Please don't pop them.
      * If you stop after the top is dissolved, I must warn you: it WILL come back! Maybe not in the next five minutes, but during the course of an hour, it will come back!

      FYI i didn't come up with this i found it online!!

  37. QUESTION:
    What is a good home remade for a sore throat?
    I have cough drops, but what else can i have... Besides Lemons or honey *i am allergic*
    I have the flu so its not strep no worries

    • ANSWER:
      Warm salt water gargle. It really works. (Perhaps by drawing fluid out of inflamed tissues by osmosis?)

      Hot tea is nice, too. Pain relievers like Tylenol or ibuprofen are good.

      Make sure it isn't strep, though. If untreated, some strains can attack your heart and cause rheumatic heart disease, or kill your kidneys (post-streptococcal glomerulonephritis).

      Feel better soon.

  40. QUESTION:
    how can you grow hair much more faster?
    I recently cut my hair short because I had only split ends, just about shoulder length and i was wondering what could help me grow it much more faster and keep it healthy w/ home remades & so far ive tried aloe and mayo, what cn you recommend other then patience

    • ANSWER:
      Hair will not grow faster really than the natural length of 1/2in a month. Lavendar Oil has been tested and it SUPPOSE to help the hair grow somewhat faster but I have not tried it so I cannot say yay or nay. You can try it though. Here are some of my tips though...

      . Take a multivitamin/biotin everyday.
      2. Healthy diet/plenty of water
      3. Use a good conditioner (recommend: Pantene 5min strengthening treatment and pantene restoratives and also Biolage conditioner)
      4. Try using oils on your hair to infuse moisture. Oils that can be used are coconut, olive, jojoba and grapeseed.
      5. Use a widetooth comb because it makes you be gentler on your hair when combing. A brush causes damage.
      6. Keep hottool usage to a minimum and do not dye your hair.
      7. Get around 1/2in cut off the ends every 3-4 months to relieve your hair of split/dead ends

      These are my tips. I hope they are helpful to you. Best of luck!

      BTW...Do not ever take prentals unless you are pregnant. They can cause vitamin and mineral overdoses if you aren't pregnant. They can also cause nausea and vomiting. Vitamin A and D are two of the vitamins that can be overdosed and do cause serious health problems. It is a medical fact. Take a multivitamin. It is just as good and you don't have to worry about health complications. I have taken prentals before FOR pregnancy and even still women have trouble with them but not from overdosing but from nausea and vomiting from the pills.

    My daughter has a bug bite on her eyelid. Any home remades I can use before I take her to the Dr. tomorrow?
    It is swollen almost shut and I can see a spot where it bit her.

    • ANSWER:
      You don't want to use any "home remedies" that close to the eye. The area is too sensitive, and you could potentially cause further irritation or even damage her vision.

      The most you should attempt is some cold packs or some ice covered in wash cloth to reduce the swelling -- nothing else.

    I Need Help About My Cat PLEASE?
    My cat has red cuts/spots on his skin with no fur surrounding him, i have done my research and seen that it may be roundworm. But is it?
    He scratches it abit but hes still eating and drinking.
    i saw some home remades like rubbing garlic clove on them twice a day which i have started to do. Anyother tips will be great??
    Anything without taking him to the vets???
    I Reallly want him to get better.
    Thanks.

    • ANSWER:
      If the leisons are on the skin it is RINGWORM not roundworms(these live in the intestines). Ringworm is a contagious fungus. Contagious from cat to cat, cat to dog, dog to dog and cat to people. Becareful that you don't become infected. Usual treatment is ketoconizole either orally in a capsule or tablet, or topically in an ointment or cream. It can take 5- 8 weeks of daily treatment to get rid of this. Wash your hands well after handling your cat. You might want to call the vet this one time and get some information.

    I know theres no for sure way to make it grow over night, but i was wondering if everyone, has any home remades or any other special tips or ideas on how i can make my hair grow faster, and be longer before summer! please and thank you!

    • ANSWER:
      Well hair grows half an inch each month on its own. But what I would suggest it try using Mane N' Tail Horse Shampoo and Conditioner. I use it all the timeand it does aid in growing your hair faster. I'd say massage it into your scalp so it can get to your roots well this increases the blood flow helping it grow faster. When shampooing and conditioning you should use cold or luke warm wateron your hair so it won't damage it. Even hot water hurts your hair.You can find it at walmart in the pet section. You should drink plenty of water to help condition your hair. Eating Coconut oil also has benifits its not only good for adding nutrients to the hair, but its also
      good for weight loss and has many more benifits.
      And don't forget about exercising, as much as I hate it, it actually helps by increasing the blood flow and stimulating the hair to grow faster.

      Hope I helped!

    • ANSWER:
      Brighten Locks with a Tea Treatment
      Soak your strands for high-wattage shine and rich color, whatever your hue.

      What You Need
      2 tea bags (chamomile, a golden mix for blondes; rooibos, a rich orange for redheads; or black tea, dark for brunettes)
      2 cups water

      1. Once a week -- or whenever you feel you could use a shine boost -- steep tea bags in boiling water for 10 minutes. Let the liquid cool to room temperature. (In a rush? Refrigerate it.)

      2. Pour the mixture over wet, just-washed hair, rubbing it through the way you would shampoo.

      3. Leave the rinse on for 10 minutes; wash and condition to seal in the silky, glossy results.

      Beauty Benefit
      "Tea lowers the pH of hair, closing the cuticle for extra shine, softness, and manageability," says Philip Pelusi, owner of Tela Design Studio in New York City. Tea's natural pigments can also neutralize brassiness for more flattering color.

      Berry Skin Scrub
      Energize a sallow complexion with this berry-sweet skin scrub.

      What You Need
      3 medium-size strawberries
      1 tablespoon honey

      1. Stem strawberries, cut into small pieces, then mash against the sides of a bowl with a spoon until softened.

      2. Fold in honey and gently mix until it's evenly distributed among berries.

      3. Using small circles, continuously massage the mixture into your face for 3 minutes; rinse with warm water.

      Beauty Benefit
      Gentle enough for sensitive skin types, "the natural fruit enzymes in strawberries slough the dull top layer of skin," says Jolanta Smusz, an aesthetician at Devachan Salon and Departure Lounge in New York City. It's also ideal for dry and oily skin: The honey hydrates parched patches, while the two-ingredient combo produces a mild antiseptic that can help head off breakouts.

      Finger Food Manicure
      Who needs lacquer? Neaten nails with juicy "finger food" instead.

      What You Need
      5 grapes (red ones are packed with more antioxidants than green)
      1 tablespoon sugar

      1. Slice grapes in half widthwise.

      2. Dip the fleshy side into the sugar and use it to massage the skin around each nail (one halved grape per finger) for about 30 seconds each.

      3. Brush away excess sugar with a soft towel and rub a dot of grapeseed oil or hand cream onto hands and cuticles.

      Beauty Benefit
      "The sugar crystals remove dead skin and hangnails, and the gentle fruit acids help exfoliate remaining raggedness," says Regine Berthelot, head aesthetician at New York City's Caudalie Vinotherapie Spa, where signature manicures begin with this treatment. In addition, the oil and cream offer the instant shine of a top coat.

      Treat Your Feet
      Get toe-tally smooth in just two steps with this deflaker.

      What You Need
      2 tablespoons cornmeal
      1 tablespoon mashed banana

      1. Stir cornmeal and banana together until evenly blended. The mix should have the consistency of wet sand.

      2. Massage the paste all over feet, working it into calluses for about 30 seconds, or until skin feels smooth.

      Beauty Benefit
      "Cornmeal exfoliates roughness and has antifungal properties, while the banana softens skin," says Kim D'Amato, owner of Priti, an organic spa in New York City.

      Tame Frizzy Hair
      Take control of dry strands with this nourishing hair calmer.

      What You Need
      1 banana
      1/2 avocado

      1. Mash banana and avocado together, then comb the mixture through dry hair, which absorbs more nutrients than wet.

      2. Cover hair with a plastic cap (the heat it creates increases penetration) and leave on hair for 10 minutes; rinse clean with cool water.

      Beauty Benefit
      "Bananas are full of potassium, and avocados are packed with moisturizing fatty acids -- two things that soften hair instantly," says Alex Safar of Salon Acote in Boston, who advises using this treatment every other week.

      UV Damage Repairing Mask
      Rescue sun-stricken skin with a potent antioxidant-rich mask.

      What You Need
      10 blueberries
      1 tablespoon plain yogurt

      1. Mash blueberries with a spoon (you can also run them through a food processor), then add yogurt.

      2. Spread the mask all over your face; remove with water after 15 minutes.

      Beauty Benefit
      Blueberries are packed with vitamins C and E, which repair and moisturize skin plus fend off fine lines caused by the sun," says Cox. Yogurt's lactic acid helps exfoliate the UV-damaged layers of the epidermis.

    • ANSWER:
      Do an Answers search and you will see many have tried all the under eye and dark bags creams and under eye rollers and report they were not even slightly effective.
      There is an epidemic of under eye bags and circles and many are reported by those in teens or early twenties. The main reason is reaction to skin sickening toxins in skin care, cosmetic and skin medicating products. Many teenage girls use 20 or more products daily and an alarming number of products contain skin(and health) harming toxins. See this site Skin Deep Cosmetic Database. A Feelgood Resource. The Database tested many thousands of products and identifies which ones are the most harming and those which are non or only minimally harming. So first thing to do is select the none or least harming products.

      Then try these safe, natural, tried and tasted treatments that quickly and permanently get rid of them. They really work and have helped many on Answers

      This is a response I received from wannabeblue28:
      “Hi Mukunda M. I have just been rubbing my face with oil using my fingers and hands and It has made a HUGE difference in my complexion after just one night. …… My skin looks so much tighter everywhere and i no longer have bags under my eyes! Thank you so much for your post, I have been suffering with acne and under-eye circles since i was young.”

      She had seen an answer I gave about how vigorous face massaging with pure natural oils had permanently rid my face of acne AND removed my bags/circles. Massage greatly tightens skin under and around the eye area and the bags go away. Find Answer with a search "Mukunda M vigorous massage to remove eye bags/circles"

      The most helpful ones are:
      (Using both hands together) massage with palms and front of fingers held together
      (1) Do long up and down sweeps close to nose from chin area up to near eyes.
      (2) Do another up and back at an angle from chin point to cheek bone.
      (3) Do fast up and down massage close to eye from cheek bones at an angle of 45 degrees (on your crows feet).
      Best if do for several minutes daily – will markedly tighten skin in eye area and diminish the circles in the first two or three days. Use any oil. Olive is good.
      IMPORTANT: To avoid skin pulling first make facial skin taught by partially opening mouth and pulling lips firmly back against teeth (tightens most of face)

      Use any natural oil. Extra virgin olive oil works well for many.
      Additionally facial yoga exercises help a great deal. Find on You Tube. Do the “The lion face” and try to hold for 30 seconds. A variation of that is protruding the tongue as if trying to touch tip of nose with tip of tongue.

      YOGA MEDITATION is a great help and is easy to do. It enables you to completely relax and gives you deep, restful sleep. 6 or 7 hours of restful sleep is considerably more beneficial than 8 or 9 more hours of non restful sleep. I found Siddha Yoga meditation was the most beneficial.

      Specialized massage will tighten skin on cheeks and under and around eye area and greatly diminish or completely get rid of bags /circles. Do a a forward and back massage – not circular.

      (2) Do another up and back at an angle from near chin point to cheek bone.
      (3) Do fast up and down massage close to eye from cheek bones at an angle of 45 degrees (on your crow’s feet).

      Best if do for a few minutes daily (not necessarily in one session) – skin will visibly tighten in eye area and the circles will diminish in one, two or three days.
      IMPORTANT: To avoid skin pulling first make skin taught by partially opening mouth and pulling lips firmly back against teeth (tightens most of face)
      Use any natural oil. Extra virgin olive and E.V. coconut oils work well for many. They are noncomedogenic - so do not clog or enlarge pores or cause breakouts and do not make skin oily.

  11. QUESTION:
    Can cucumbers get rid of eye bags under the eye?
    I had eye bags for several years (I'm 13 I had eye bags for about 10 years)
    Others say cucumbers and cold spoons on the eyes help get rid of eye bags and about 9 hours of sleep.
    If this does work, how long do I have to keep on doing the cycle?
    Can it be one day and your eye bags are gone or about a week?

    • ANSWER:
      you were born with eye bags if you've had them since you were 3. There isn't much you can do about that beyond surgery.

      Anything you can do is only a temporary fix. You'd have to keep doing it forever - assuming you can achieve improvement.

      So if cucumbers work for you - you will have to keep doing it forever.

      Personally I like used teabags. The caffiene in them helps to tighten the skin.

      Do a little experiment - get some hemmoriod cream and dab some under your eye. If you see improvement then the products will help - but again with repeated use. If the hemmoriod cream shows no improvement then I wouldn't bother trying anything. Also - don't use hemmoriod cream on your face a lot. It could cause discoloration with repeated use. Its just an experiment.

      Remedy for Dark Circles or Puffiness Under Eyes

      The following list of ingredients to reduce bags or bruising under the eyes are cheap and easy to find at your local drug store or online.

      * Empty 4oz bottle with lid
      * 100% pure chamomile essential oil
      * Witch hazel
      * Cotton balls or cotton cosmetic pads

      Mix together in the empty bottle 4oz of witch hazel and four drops of chamomile essential oil. Put the lid on the bottle and shake well. Store in the refrigerator until needed.

      To use the homemade solution, dampen two cotton balls or cotton cosmetic pads with the cool witch hazel and chamomile liquid. Lay down and place one cotton ball over each closed eye. Be sure to lay your head on a pillow to help raise your head above heart level since this also helps to reduce swelling under the

      Rest for five minutes or so while the puffy eye treatment takes effect. Avoid opening your eyes with the compresses on since the mixture will sting. Once the dampened cotton balls are removed, let your skin dry before opening your eyes. This mixture can be used as needed, or even on a daily basis.

      How The Puffy Eye Treatment Works

      Since witch hazel is high in tannins, it has an astringent effect that helps to tighten tissue and reduce swelling. The chamomile essential oil helps to stimulate the flow of blood in the veins beneath the eyes and is also an anti-inflammatory. Keeping the solution in the refrigerator keeps it cold, which helps reduce swelling.

      If this remedy doesn’t help and under eye circles or swelling is accompanied by blurred vision, pain or discomfort, contact your optometrist to rule out any medical conditions that may require further treatment.

      Cooling Overnight Treatments

      Because those bags tend to be visible when we wake up, using an
      overnight treatment to alleviate the problem can be a wise choice. One of
      the easiest and safest is simply to take an ordinary washcloth from your linen cabinet
      at the end of your pre-bedtime routine. Get it soaking wet with
      cool water, squeeze out the excess water, and sleep with the cloth
      over your eyes as you sleep. Besides helping with the bags, this
      is also a good treatment for stress headaches and can help improve relaxation. works wonders:]

    What is the best way to treat eye bags/puffy eyes?
    What is the best way to treat eye bags/puffy eyes for a 50 year old woman, such as techniques (eye exercises), eye treatment products, or any good under-eye concealers that work?

    • ANSWER:
      A frozen spoon applied to your under eye bags for about 5 mins a day actually does work well. Also, they say that the main reason your eyes get puffy is from the blood circulation in your face. So if you sleep with your head at a slight upright position and not just flat then it will help with the puffiness. Good luck!

  24. QUESTION:
    How to get rid of eye bags and dark circles?
    Years of poor sleeping have left me with really saggy eye bags and dark circles, I look more like a drug addict that Pete Doherty on Sunday morning!
    Can anyone tell me the best way to get rid of them?

    • ANSWER:
      There are many causes of dark circles, from age, heredity, allergies, cold or sinus infection, bone structure and glasses which are not so commonly known.
      http://www.mydarkcirclesblog.com/2006/11/27/causes-of-dark-circles/

      If you would like to apply home remedies to reduce dark circles, here are some of my suggestions:
      Buy a box of regular, old fashioned unflavored gelatin (e.g. Knox) from grocery store. Take a small cup or bowl and put in 1 teaspoon of the gelatin mix. Add one tablespoon of boiling water & stir for a minute. Test it on your wrist to make sure it is not too hot. Then, using a cotton ball, pat it under your eyes as you would an eye cream or gel. Go lie down and listen to some music, or take a bath & let it stay on for at least 30 minutes. Then just rinse it off. Gelatin is very high in Vitamin K & Biotin. It will not remove your dark circles on the first application (but you will notice a difference), but if you do it daily for a week, and then 2-3 times a week for maintenance, you should notice a drastic reduction in dark circles.

    Does anybody any natural way to take out the eye bags and puffiness?

    I don't know started to have bags and puffiness in my eyes. Now I need the best thing to get rid off just little bid eye bags.

    • ANSWER:
      Chilled tea bags, preferable chamomile as long as you are not allergic to it, some people are allergic to chamomile. Soak some tea bags in water, pop them in the fridge for a bit, and then lie down with your head elevated and the tea bags over your eyes, making sure the puffy parts are covered. Some people have bags under their eyes do to genetics, unfortunately that is me! Others have them because of allergies and sinus problems. If that's the case, try to sleep with your head elevated, it can help some, and then when you wake up do the tea bag thing. You can also chill some spoons and lie them over the puffy area, but I found that to be uncomfortable.

      Green tea bags, let them rest on the puffy spots. The tea has this tannic acid thing that helps with swelling. They say cucumber things work, but I've never had much success with them, the tea bag thing is awesome, just becareful to wash your face afterwards, otherwise if you have a really fair complexion, the tea might leave a slightly brown/black tint, but it will wash off, because you shouldn't leave it on longer than 10-15 mins.

  28. QUESTION:
    How much is it to surgically remove eye bags?
    I would quite like to have plastic surgery (or actually, any type of surgery) to remove my extremely dark under eye bags. I'm only 14, but I have incredibly dark bags - I've never seen anyone with them as dark as mine. I don't necessarily want it now (though if my parents allowed it i probably would), but I would just like an average price so I know what to exepct if I ever have it done - none of the actual surgery websites have a price!

    • ANSWER:
      Forget the surgery cost. No matter what it costs now, it will cost more when you are 18.

      The dark circles are from the little veins around your eyes leaking, yes, leaking blood. Along with the hemoglobin, well, the blood simply stays there, around the eyes.

      Get plenty of sleep, but not too much.
      Start a workout routine and stick with it.
      Cut out eating crap and processed foods, like chips, cookies, cereals, sweets, etc...
      Drink an average of 4 oz. of water every hour you're awake.

      Try Chrysin, or Amla Extract. Or, try Vitamin K. It's used to help reduce bruising.

      Check out a website called Skin Actives. They sell these individual products, as well as many others, to make your own skin care. They have lots of good info on there as well as a forum. You're not the first person with dark circles. what works for one might not work for others. And you'll find plenty of helpful info on that website.

    What is the best Physicians Formula concealer to use on under eye bags/dark circles?
    I've heard they're really good! I have dark eye bags that are basically blue-ish, purple-ish. Some reason my eyelids are slightly pink o_o.. I'm basically looking for something that will cover the eye bags, and won't settle in fine lines and make it look really dry.

    Also, are there other drugstore branded concealers that work specifically for under eye bags/dark circles that are really good, as in don't dry out and settle in the fine lines of the eyes?

      you want hte orange or peach one. if they are more purple than blue though, use a yellow one. if you use a primer before it wont set into fine lines or if you use a powder concealer. good creamy concealers are hard to find because the results vary by skin type.

  31. QUESTION:
    How do I get rid of under-eye bags and acne ?

Making my skin look terrible and the bags under my eyes look worse than they really are. I have bright blue eyes and brown hair. I'm 5'7 and 125 pounds, have a chest and butt. I just need help clearing my skin and getting rid of the under eye bags. Any help?

    • ANSWER:
      Some tips that you can try at home
      Cool as a Cucumber: The most trusted method to get rid of the dark circles is by placing cucumber pieces on your eyes for 15 minutes after a tiring day of work. They will refresh you as well as hydrate the area beneath the eyes and lessen the appearance of dark circles. Applying cucumber juice will also help reduce puffiness of the eyes.

      Almond oil: Gently apply almond oil to your eyes for 10 minutes for two to three weeks. Almond oil will provide that much needed moisture to the skin, lighten the color and improve the circulation near the eyes. Be consistent for best effects.

      Shades up: Help your eyes by wearing sunglasses whenever venturing out in the sun. Also make sure the sun glasses have wider frame that protects the skin near the eyes too. Also don’t forget to apply sunscreen with at least SPF 15 on all areas exposed as well as around the eyes.
      Tea bags for the eye bags: Yes, you can use the used tea bags or new ones to fight the dark circles. Tea contains anti oxidant properties and when tea bags frozen overnight are applied to the skin, it cools the eyes and nourishes the skin.
      Leave it to mint: Take 12-15 mint leaves and grind them to paste. Apply this paste under your skin for 15 minutes for two weeks. Mint leaves are so effective that adding them to your diet also helps in reducing dark circles.

      Rose water: You can also dip cotton balls in rose water and then apply them to the area beneath the eyes.

      I wish you the very best good luck!

    • ANSWER:
      Puffy and swollen eyes are not just the result of less sleep but can also be caused due to excess salt intake. Salt contains sodium which causes water retention resulting in puffiness around the eye area. Therefore monitor your eating habits to see whether this is your problem.

      Online stores do have creams designed for under-eye puffiness and their regular usage shows considerable results. You can visit the following site to know more about these products:

    • ANSWER:
      How to get rid of eye bags

      1. Eat whole foods as much as possible. Leave processed foods untouched in their shelves when doing your grocery. Consume watery fruits and veggies such as watermelon, cucumbers, apples, cranberry, asparagus and grapes.

      Coconut water and green tea are good natural diuretics. Potassium-rich foods such as bananas, strawberries, cantaloupe, tomatoes, papaya and yogurt help keep your body (and face) from retaining water.

      Getting lots of vitamins A, C and E from natural food sources such as carrots and dark leafy greens, citrus fruits, bell peppers, nuts, seeds and cold-pressed oils would also be highly beneficial. Vitamin C and B6 supplements also assist in the body’s expulsion of extra fluids.

      2. Keep yourself well hydrated by drinking enough water each day. Raw fruits and vegetables also contain high amounts of quality, mineral-rich water that your body will need to purge itself of toxins and impurities that can lead to the formation of eye bags.

      3. Avoid foods and beverages that encourage fluid retention such as alcohol, coffee, white sugar, cheese, fried foods, carbonated drinks, white flour, gravy, salt, soy sauce and foods that contain monosodium glutamate.

      Steer away from food toxins such as artificial preservatives, chemical additives and pesticides present in inorganic produce. Don’t go crazy over carbohydrate laden foods as these can also lead to facial edema.

      4. Obtain extra iron by eating spinach, broccoli, dried fruits such as raisins, and sea vegetables such as kelp, dulse and laver. You can also take an iron supplement as an insurance policy.

      5. Keep your sodium intake under tight control. The common rule is not to exceed 2,000 milligrams of sodium each day.

      But since you are conscious of your rather pronounced eye bags then you might as well not go over 1,000 milligrams of sodium a day, which would entail mandatory label reading and sodium intake monitoring.

      6. To reduce the appearance of bags under eyes, place both of your index fingers on the sides of your outer nostrils and apply gentle pressure on the two areas for ten seconds.

      You can either steadily press these points or move your fingers in tiny circular motions. Repeat five times. Pressing on these acupressure points will initiate release of toxins that can manifest as under eye bags.

      7. Fix your body clock and follow a facial exercise regime. Going to bed on time, sleeping for seven to eight hours, keeping stress in check and doing facial exercises that minimize under eye bags will not only tighten the eye ring muscles.

      These will also improve circulation in the eye area, which can help lighten the appearance of dark circles. Face exercises for the muscle ring around the eyes ring also smoothen crow’s feet and other wrinkles in the periorbital area.

      Upper eyelid bags or hooded lids will also get their treatment through the practice of face exercises.

      8. The cold cucumber remedy has the reputation of being merely anecdotal but those who put cold cucumber slices regularly swear by its efficacy. Slice a cucumber and freeze 2 slices for half an hour.

      Meanwhile munch on the remaining slices with a freshly made low sodium dip or a simple raw apple cider vinegar and black pepper dip. Apple cider vinegar is another all-natural remedy for water retention due to its high potassium content.

      After thirty minutes have elapsed get the 2 cucumber slices from the freezer. Lie down and place both on closed eyes for fifteen minutes.

  42. QUESTION:
    What are some eye creams/treatments that I should use to prevent dark circles and eye bags?
    I'm 22 yrs old. I have eye bags and I don't want them to get any bigger or deeper.

    • ANSWER:
      to get rid of dark circles:

      1. get plenty of sleep nightly. for one thing, lack of sleep tends to cause the skin to become paler (thus increasing the appearance of darkness under the eyes), and it reduces circulation. it’s also believed that too little time lying down is a cause in itself. determine how much sleep you need (it’s usually 7-9 hours per night, but varies throughout different people) and try to get that amount regularly for a couple of weeks to see if that helps. remember that alcohol and drugs can adversely affect the quality of your sleep; abstain from these products or use only in moderation for best results.

      2. establish whether or not this condition runs in your family. dark circles are believed to frequently be hereditary. this doesn’t mean that you can’t do anything about the conditions, but you should be prepared for minimal success actually trying to get rid of them. dark circles under the eye may also, in fact, be light carbon deposits that result from incomplete protein digestion. incomplete protein digestion may result from insufficient hydrochloric acid in your stomach that may be caused from a lack of primarily b6 and folic acid. about 30% of the population does not absorb regular b6 (pydroxine) or folic acid and need to take in these vitamins in a different form or another way.

      3. identify allergens. allergies may be the most common cause of skin discoloration under the eyes. if allergies are the root of your problem, you simply need to treat them or remove the allergen (the thing to which you are allergic). seasonal allergy problems such as the hay fever can frequently be effectively treated with over-the-counter and prescription medications. for other allergies the best course of action is usually avoidance. if your dark circles or puffiness are constant, you may have an undetected food allergy or an allergy to a chemical in your home or workplace. talk to a dermatologist for help determining what you may be allergic to. people with allergies also tend again to be deficient in b6, folic acid. taking a multivitamin, if you don't already, may help with your allergies as well as black circles.

      4. treat your skin while you sleep. there are overnight facial masques available that may help reduce the appearance of puffiness or discoloration, but you can also make your own. just before you go to bed, take a washcloth and wet it just a bit with cold water. then squeeze out any excess water and place it over your eyes as you sleep.

      5. apply cool tea bags, an ice cube wrapped in soft cloth, or cucumber slices to your eyes daily. the tannin in tea bags has been shown to reduce swelling and discoloration, and cucumber slices have long been used to reduce puffiness and refresh the appearance of skin around the eyes. lie down, preferably in the morning, and leave fresh cucumber slices or cool, damp caffeinated tea bags (you can refrigerate them overnight so they’ll be ready) over your eyes for about 10-15 minutes. keep your eyes closed.

      6. try to relax the space. you can do this by wetting a cotton swab and then freezing it for a little while. then you should gently wipe under your eyes in the areas where the circles are occurring. when wiping, close your eyes and try not to flinch.

      7. apply an eye cream containing vitamin k and retinol. research has shown that skin creams containing these two ingredients reduce puffiness and discoloration significantly in many patients. long-term daily use seems to have the greatest effect.

      8. avoid rubbing your eyes. usually rubbing of the eyes is brought on by allergies, but not always. regardless of the reason, stop doing it. the rubbing irritates the skin and can break tiny capillaries beneath the skin, causing both puffiness and discoloration.

      9. eat a healthy, balanced diet and drink plenty of water. a whole host of cosmetic problems can be attributed to vitamin deficiencies. be sure to get plenty of fruits and vegetables—especially cabbage, spinach, and other leafy green vegetables. get adequate fluids to improve circulation.

      10. reduce salt intake. excess salt causes the body to retain water in unusual places, and this can result in puffiness under the eyes. too much salt can also impair your circulation, and cause the blood vessels under the skin to appear bluer.

      11. if you smoke- then quit. smoking causes vascular (blood vessel) problems that can not only threaten your life, but also make your blood vessels appear more prominent and bluer beneath the skin.

      12. if this doesnt work try covering the problem up with cosmetics. use a yellow or flesh-toned colour which will camouflage the problem under your eyes. mac do the best ones for covering up dark circles although they are a bit expensive. if you are on a budget i would definately reccomend rimmel. good luck

      hope this helps

      A lot of factors cause bags under eyes. Stress, lack of sleep, too much sleep, genetics, dehydration; even the way you sleep!
      To get rid of them you can take used tea bags, refrigerate them and place over your eyes for ten minutes. Then wash your face.
      You can also use cucumber slices on your eyes for the same amount of time.

      Try and organise your sleeping schedule so you're not sleeping in one day and getting up very early another, drink plenty of water and make sure you're taking all your vitamins (through supplements or fruit and veg). This should reduce them more permanently.
