I've had some health issues lately that have made me very aware of the necessity of me knowing how to take care of my ailments sans pharmaceutical crap. I've been doing a lot of google searches with the word "naturally" in it. Once again marjory has my back in this area. She has these amazing dvds called Home Medicine 101 and they are freaking great.

Click HERE to check them out.



All the awesome stuff you learn in the dvds:

Week 1 – Burns, Stings, and Rashes ...
Burns, stings and rashes are some of the most common first aid scenarios you’ll come across in daily living so we’ll tackle this topic right off the bat. By the time you complete the very first leg of your expedition, you’ll already know...

Week 2 – Wounds and Lacerations...
Prevention may be the best medicine, but when bumps, bruises, abrasions and cuts happen you’ll know the right approach to speed healing and fight infection. Natural remedies you’ll learn how to identify, make and use during this second lesson include...

Week 3 – Coughs and Colds...
Coughs come in two general forms, dry and wet. Dry, raspy coughs need to be treated differently than wet coughs produced in mucus-filled lungs. During week three of your expedition you’ll learn how to treat both kinds of cough and more, including...

Week 4 – Fevers
If your first instinct when you catch a fever is to bring the fever down, you’ll gain a new perspective during this week’s lesson. Nicole presents a holistic approach to handling fevers by helping move pathogens out of your body faster so you can feel better sooner. By the end of the lesson you’ll know...

Week 5 – Indigestion and Stomach Aches
Moving into the second half of our journey together, Nicole shares four flavorful types of herbs and spices that deliver surprising improvements to your overall digestion and comfort...

Week 6 – Anxiety and Insomnia
Don’t worry, be happy... because this week Nicole is going to guide you through how to calm an overactive nervous system – the most common cause of both anxiety and insomnia. Rather than taking the first conventional response of taking medicines, try these proven natural solutions instead...

Week 7 – Muscle Aches and Pains
Nicole starts off this leg of your journey by helping you determine whether your pain is muscular-based for treatment with the remedies in this section or something else like nerve pain. Then she’ll describe...

Week 8 – Topical Infections
Wrapping up our expedition, Nicole delves into basic home remedies for infections... particularly in delicate areas like the eyes, nose, mouth and genital area. In this final leg of your journey you’ll learn about...

weel you got me with Alternatives to dentists, and I guess I'll put these in the wish list, I've been on books lately but I guess some great informative dvd's have to get in my life.
I never really pay attention to my health issues, always think its going to pass, my way of living is a bit absurd. wanting to try to be more conscious could pass through watching these dvd's, I never really love reading about medical things so maybe watching someone explain is better for me.
Hope your problems have been solved. A big hug from Italy to the smiley one!
thanks for sharing your finds!

Perhaps it should be gently pointed out that most of the homegrown medicines described for minor ailments treatments could also be described as 'pharmaceutical crap'! Just a thought.

I'm not really sure what you mean. Could you elaborate?

I am thinking about taking this class, but what exactly did you mean here?

I think perhaps what Nick means is that most commercial pharmaceuticals are based on natural sources. 

But then, and this is just my opinion based on watching what my parents went through (my mother almost died several times from 'complications'), they 'do things' to those natural things that seem to cause more problems.

I, too will be checking out these DVDs.

Ah, ok. Well as far as the DVDs go, they aren't DVDs. I was worried about this being outdated, but the price is valid and they are still offering it. I'm on my third week so far and it really is a go at your own pace type of thing. which is awesome! I was able to do 2 weeks in one day, but I had to make myself stop and slow down so that I could actually let it sink in and use it for a while before moving on. It's certainly a lot of awesome information, but it takes determination to make yourself slow up a bit for the better. It's videos with references, homework, and quizzes. I like it. You should give it a go!

Hey!!! Good news!

I finally got my certificate! I finished the course a few months ago, but they're a small team and they've been busy with the Summit and everything else so they just got it to me. Either way, I'm stoked! YAY!!! Give it a try. Very awesome information! Totally worth it!

yeah. i totally agree with you. Sometimes, natuaral materials around us are good medicine. For example, if you are suffering from oral thrush, you can try to use salt.

Salt is considered one of the top home remedies for oral thrush as it helps destroying the habitat of the fungus[4][5]. Also, in case of infection, salt can reduce the symptoms and be a quick cure.

Follow some steps below:

    Dilute ½ to 1 teaspoon of salt with 1 cup of warm water. Gargle using this water and repeat until the symptoms are reduced and you feel comfortable.
    Use your fingers to gently apply some salt on your tongue and rub it for a few seconds. Then rinse your mouth using warm water. Repeat it twice every day for a couple of days.

Hope this information is useful

All the information I have found...tons of it...are easily found right on the internet and for free.The information so very readily available about any herb, the health benefits, contraindications (if any), how to best use any particular herb for healing and excellent health is given many times over. Just go to any search engine, type in any ailment, any herb and it's all there! YYYAAAYYY! Making a notebook of these things really helps to find health-giving information if/when the internet is not available. youtube.com is also a wealth of good information for herbs, health and how to use the herb for maximum benefit.


Genesis 1:29-30 "Then God said, "Behold, I have given you every plant yielding seed that is on the surface of all the earth, and every tree which has fruit yielding seed; it shall be food for you; 
30 and to every beast of the earth and to every bird of the sky and to every thing that moves on the earth which has life, I have given every green plant for food"; and it was so.…" Yes, indeed!!
 
This will take every ounce of my mental strength! All for a tiny ad:
