Help I am sick and I’m Miserable – Part 3

In the first two parts of this 3 part series I focused on natural ways to rid yourself or your children of lice, a nasty sty, congestion depression and a cold.  I also covered migraines and mold.  I gave you a long list of direct symptoms related to mold and mycotoxin exposure.  You can read part one here and part two here.

Part three I wanted to cover some very useful products and things I use in our home when certain ailments arise.   So I am going to list some ailments and alongside I will list what we use.

Earaches/Infection – We use 2 to 4 drops of Garlic and Mullein leaf Oil dropped in both ears then I gently massage around the earlobe in addition to tugging it gently.  You can make the garlic oil by putting a few cloves of garlic in a warm olive oil in a pan on low for a few minutes until the oils of the garlic is released. Then you strain off the garlic and place in a dropper bottle.  If you just can’t manage this then a great product we use when in a hurry is MULLEIN/GARLIC COMPOUND (Ear Drops) by Herb Pharm.  This is one of the better compounds as none of the herbs are fumigated or irradiated.  This compound contains:

Calendula flower (Calendula officinalis)
St. John’s Wort flower (Hypericum perforatum)
Mullein flower (Verbascum olympicum)
Garlic bulb (Allium sativum)

 Cuts, abrasions, all types of burns (thermal, sun, radiation, and chemical burns), frostbite, trauma and bruises, ulcerations and erosions, diaper rash, contact dermatitis, aged and weathered skin, chapped skin and lips, hemorrhoids, irritation or injury of labial and vaginal tissues, traumatized eyes – Another great Herb Pharm product that I keep one in my purse usually and one at home.  This stuff is fantastic and has many curative properties.  Its important to first clean the affected area before applying.  This lovely salve contains:

Comfrey root (Symphytum officinale)
Calendula flower (Calendula officinalis)
Chickweed herb (Stellaria media)
Plantain leaf (Plantago lanceolata)
Mullein leaf (Verbascum thapsus)
St. John’s Wort flowering tops (Hypericum perforatum)

Childhood anxiety/stress/panic attacks – When an accident occurs and there is obvious trauma or when my little girl goes into freak out mode because she is stressed out we use Bach Flower Essences Bach Rescue Remedy Kids.  I find this is a great, safe herbal treatment without the side effects and risks of prescription meds that in recent years are proving to be more and more harmful for children especially those meds that cause suicidal tendencies and withdrawal.  I use the adult night version as well occasionally to help me fall asleep as it works wonderfully.

Nose stuffiness/allergies/itchy throat – With all the recalls on products I seldom purchase anything in the drugstore anymore.  For allergies we use Natra-Bio Homeopathics Children’s Allergy.  For nasal congestion, stuffiness and itchy scratchy throat we use Xlear Nasal Wash by Xlear.  We always buy the 3 pack to save since we know it’s something we will use year round.  These drops have been on the market for many years.  I first discovered them about 4 years ago.  They work just like saline nasal drops.

Now most of these ailments can be prevented by modifying our diets (which I will cover in another article) but since we are human and not mechanical robots we do tend to slack off and get sick or hurt every once in a while.  So when you’re super human body breaks down you will have some healthy options. 🙂

I was planning to stop at Part 3 but I have more natural remedies I will share with you in part 4, so check back soon.
