Nature's Secret Antibiotic

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

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

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 While it has mainly been replaced by china and other materials that require less cleaning it is history that teaches us of its value.

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

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

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

Natural Remedies for Your Children

By Jenetta Haim  | Submitted On July 14, 2017

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

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

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