Natural ways to get rid of wrinkles
Most people think that once you have wrinkles you're stuck with them, but there's actually quite a bit you can do about them. However, there's quite a bit that you can do about wrinkles topically.
How to use Coconut oil, beet and carrot juice.
Coconut oil is a wonderful oil that is known to rebuild our skin tissue and it can be used both topically and internally regularly for the elimination of wrinkles. Coconut oil is both hydrating and rebuilds our connective tissues, and damaged connective tissues are often the cause of wrinkles.
Using a little carrot and beet juice on the skin regularly helps remove wrinkles too and is in fact quite powerful. The vitamin A in carrot juice is wonderful for the skin. Beets are also known to repair our DNA, so using beet juice topically on wrinkle sites is a powerful way to rebuild the damaged skin which often causes wrinkles - possibly by repairing the DNA of the damaged tissue. Using carrot and beet juice topically with coconut oil also increases the benefits of both. Coconut oil has absorptive properties that help pull the juices into the skin in addition to its hydration benefits.
You'll only need a tablespoon or two of these juices each time and you can drink what you don't use. You'll want to leave these juices on your skin for about ten minutes before rinsing them off. You can apply and reapply the juices as they dry, rubbing them in each time.
After you've spent some time repairing your skin with coconut oil and these juices, you'll want to exfoliate your skin to remove the dead skin. You can exfoliate with a washcloth or you can use the juice of a somewhat unripe pineapple. Pineapple contains the enzyme bromelain which naturally eats away our top layer of skin when applied topically and leaves the new fresh skin underneath. Pineapple juice easily rivals expensive spa exfoliation treatments.
To exfoliate with pineapple juice, just apply some of the juice with a little coconut oil or olive oil and rub it in, reapplying it as needed. After a few minutes of rubbing, you may find that dead layers of skin start to come off in your hands. And after doing this, just rinse and apply a layer of coconut or olive oil to hydrate the skin.
While you may not be able to get rid of all of your wrinkles this way, you might be able be get rid of 50 or 60 percent of them. Of
course, the more you do the juices and the coconut oil, the more effective they are.
EATING FRUIT THE PROPER WAY
We all think eating fruits means just buying fruits, cutting it and just popping it into our mouths. It's not as easy as you think. It's important to know how and when to eat.
What is the correct way of eating fruits?
IT MEANS NOT EATING FRUITS AFTER YOUR MEALS! FRUITS SHOULD BE EATEN ON AN EMPTY STOMACH.
If you eat fruit like that, it will play a major role to detoxify your system, supplying you with a great deal of energy for weight loss and other life activities.
FRUIT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT FOOD.
Lets say you eat two slices of bread and then a slice of fruit. The slice of fruit is ready to go straight through the stomach into the intestines, but it is prevented from doing so.
In the meantime the whole meal rots and ferments and turns to acid. The minute the fruit comes into contact with the food in the stomach and digestive juices, the entire mass of food begins to spoil.
So please eat your fruits on an empty stomach or before your meals! You have heard people complaining abut every time I eat watermelon I burp, when I eat durian my stomach bloats up, when I eat a banana I feel like running to the toilet, etc . Actually all this will not arise if you eat the fruit on an empty stomach. The fruit mixes with the putrefying other food and produces gas and hence you will bloat! Graying hair, balding , nervous outburst, and dark circles under the eyes all these will NOT happen if you take fruits on an empty stomach.
There is no such thing as some fruits, like orange and lemon are acidic, because all fruits become alkaline in our body, according to Dr. Herbert Shelton who did research on this matter. If you have mastered the correct way of eating fruits, you have the secret of beauty, longevity, health, energy, happiness and normal weight.
When you need to drink fruit juice - drink only fresh fruit juice, NOT from the cans. Don't even drink juice that has been heated up. Don't eat cooked fruits because you don't get the nutrients at all. You only get the taste. Cooking destroys all the vitamins.
But eating a whole fruit is better than drinking the juice. If you should drink the juice, drink it mouthful by mouthful slowly, because you must let it mix with your saliva before swallowing it. You can go on a 3-day fruit fast to cleanse your body. Just eat fruits and drink fruit juice throughout the 3 days and you will be surprised when your friends tell you how radiant you look!
Drinking Cold water after a meal = Cancer! Can you believe this?? For those who like to drink cold water, this article is applicable to you. It is nice to have a cup of cold drink after a meal. However, the cold water will solidify the oily stuff that you have just consumed. It will slow down the digestion. Once this 'sludge' reacts with the acid, it will break down and be absorbed by the intestine faster than the solid food. It will line the intestine. Very soon, this will turn into fats and lead to cancer. It is best to drink hot soup or warm water after a meal.
A serious note about heart attacks
Women should know that not every heart attack symptom is going to be the left arm hurting. Be aware of intense pain in the jaw line. You may never have the first chest pain during the course of a heart attack. Nausea and intense sweating are also common symptoms. Sixty percent of people who have a heart attack while they are asleep do not wake up. Pain in the jaw can wake you from a sound sleep. Let's be careful and be aware. The more we know the better chance we could survive.
Ginger is great stuff
If you've had gall bladder problems (stones) you might want to avoid large amounts of ginger, as it seems to increase bile flow, and is believed by some to trigger gallstone attacks in susceptible people. Sharp pains below the rib cage on the right side would be a clue.
On the other hand, it does help to aid digestion (especially of fatty foods) for the exact same reasons. So use ginger root!! Trust me it works!
I had my gallbladder removed back in 2006 after almost dying from complications from my gallbladder that turned into Pancreatitis (for me it was caused by pregnancy and child birth). Stupidly never went back for my post surgery appointment so I never knew what to expect. I had a newborn so it was the last thing on my mind. One day sometime after surgery it happened for the first time while I was out to dinner. Then from then on every time I ate anything. It lasted for over a year or two and I just lived with it. It just became something that I knew would happen after I ate. Then my sister-in-law told me to try ginger root. She had similar problems but not related to gallbladder removal. I tried it and its amazing how it works. It actually started working within a day or so. I buy Spring Valley brand from Walmart and cannot live without it. I take one a day and don't have that problem anymore. It's hard to believe I had to live that way for so long. Its my miracle vitamin.
Dosage: Because ginger has a widespread use and a lengthy history of consumption, we believe that the ginger root herb is effective and safe to consider for nutritional inclusion. Dosages of ginger range from 25 mg to 100 mg. For optimal health maintenance, lower doses are better; for severe digestive problems, higher dosages may be considered. Ginger has no known serious side effects, and the herb is viewed as a very safe herb to take. However, consumers should be aware that it has been known to cause heartburn in some people. If such a side effect occurs, lower the dosage or stop using the herb.
I suffered from Acid reflux for nine months, tried almost everything, was on NEXIUM too, I did not have chest pain but throat pain, and ginger tea was the most spectacular discovery! Now I drink several glasses of ginger tea daily and the pain is now much much weaker. Nothing I tried before ever made so much difference. Therefore, strongly recommend ginger.
I buy a fresh one, peel it off, cut it in small pieces and just spill hot water over it, just like I would do with any other tea.
Anyway, that worked out for me. Pain is not completely gone yet (I drink it for three days only) but life became much more bearable since I started.
My husband has had terrible sinus congestion for months! Because it felt as though he had some sort of barrier in his left nostril, even his CPAP machine wasn't allowing him to breathe. Sleepless night... tons of money on meds... countless nosebleeds because of all of the nasal sprays... he was miserable and feeling a little desperate.
Then, as the last resort, I searched and came across your ginger root remedy. $2.00 for a huge ginger root that I peeled, cut into chunks and steeped for 4 hours in a pot of water with 2 green tea bags. Dan sipped on the surprisingly yummy tea all evening, and for the first time in MONTHS, he's completely clear! There wasn't a dramatic loss of mucus, but for whatever reason, I believe it shrunk the swollen nasal passages, and for the last 3 nights in a row, he's slept ALL night, clear as a bell! He didn't even snore! I can't even begin to tell you what a HUGE blessing this remedy is for us.
I work with a Japanese woman who told me that ginger root also helps digestive issues and menstrual cramps. We've decided to make ginger root tea part of our daily routine.
Sinus Cure: I had really bad sinus congestion about a month. After trying all kinds of over the counter products I decided to try a natural remedy using fresh ginger root. I cut about 2-3 ounces off the ginger root, peeled it. Then I placed it inside a tea cup of water and put it in the micro wave for 3 minutes and allowed it to cool a little before sipping. I did not notice the results until three days later, I went to blow my nose and lots of brown mucus came out of my nose. I drank a few more cups after that and now I feel clear and more better.
Sometime ago a gal friend was wearing a wrist brace for carpal tunnel. I told her about ginger root and gave her about ten capsules to try. About one week later I saw her and asked about the results. She said it helped with the carpal tunnel but it made the biggest difference with her menstrual cramps within about 15 to 20 minutes!"
Arthritis Remedy: Ginger Root/Mint tea. I have found that making tea out of ginger root and mint is more helpful than any capsules. Take about a 1 1/2 inch piece of fresh ginger root, peel and then slice root into mug, add some fresh mint leaves, pour good boiling water over and steep at least 1/2 hour (the longer the better) drink before you retire for the night. This not only helps with the joint pain but has also helped me sleep more soundly. The mint is important as it helps the stomach - ginger root tea alone can be a bit difficult. This is an acquired taste. DO NOT get carried away like I did the first week and drink more than one huge mug a night. As my Chinese Dr. friend said "it is like listerine for the body". Cleans out the toxins and it is a natural anti inflammatory.
Whenever my family and I are ill with nausea or sick stomach I give them a ginger root pill. Symptoms are completely gone within 30 minutes and don't return for at least 8 hours! Usually 2-3 capsules in all it takes and you are symptom FREE!!!
A friend of mine had chronic sore throat and couldn't speak. She was due to give a lecture the following day. I got a small piece of ginger (about the size of half a thumb) and sliced the ginger into fine pieces. put it in a pot & added a glass of water, boiled it down to 1/4 glass of water. once slightly cooled I added honey and squeezed in a teaspoon full of lemon juice. gave this concentrated liquid to my friend. Believe it or not, the next day the sore throat was completely gone. She couldn't believe it too, as she was resigned to canceling the talk.
I have suffered from very bad arthritis for some years and also osteoporosis of the spine. I used to dread winters even though I was prescribed antiinflamatory pills and painkillers by my doctor. I recently discovered ginger root (I found a newspaper article about ginger that I had put away some years ago) and have been taking it for about 3 weeks now in capsule form from the health food shop. The stiffness has gone from my joints and spine and most of the pain which is gradually disappearing. In fact, the other day I realized that I didn't have any pain or stiffness at all. It is such a great remedy that I am recommending it to everybody I know who has arthritis.
Home made anti inflammation Ginger Ale 2 Tbsp of Coconut Water Kefir 1-2 cups of coconut water 2-4 oz of fresh ginger grated. Combine all ingredients and let sit and ferment for 24 hours to provide an amazing, probiotic enriched soda alternative.
Hawthorn Berry for the heart
Hawthorn Berry has been used as a tonic for the heart and cardiovascular system for quite some time. It is used considerably as a heart condition remedy in Europe, and the tea has been used in China or by Chinese families elsewhere as a heart tonic. Here is a natural source rich in flavonoids that has been used successfully for various cardiovascular disorders, including angina (constricted blood vessels), tachycardia (rapid heart beat), and arrhythmia (irregular heart beat).
The positive inotropic activity supports myocardial contractility. In other words, the heart muscles are strengthened for stronger heart contractions. Additionally, blood vessel walls are strengthened and made more pliable, while dilating them to help reduce high blood pressure and angina. This berry improves the
oxygenation of red blood cells. It has also been found to reduce blood lipids (fats). The New York Heart Association has had success with using Hawthorn for functional congestive type two heart failure (CHF) in clinical trials.
Hawthorn Berry tea has been a bedrock of heart tonics for many years. If there is a Chinese food market nearby, it may have Hawthorn Berry tea available. But for specific nagging heart conditions, it is recommended that therapeutic doses be taken through capsules or tinctures or extracts. Those forms are available from health food stores, herbalists, or online. For realized heart conditions, consult with a holistic health practitioner or herbalist for proper dosage.
The danger of sleeping drugs
Never again!" That was the reaction of my friend Marcy after she tried Ambien to help her sleep.
Why never again? It wasn't because of a bad reaction. Just the opposite. Marcy went to sleep quickly, slept well, and didn't feel groggy the next day.
The problem, she said, was the last few minutes, just before she fell to sleep. She suddenly had a euphoric all-is-right-with-the-world feeling.
The next day she said, "Never again," because when she found herself looking forward to bedtime and another dose of Ambien, she was suddenly afraid she might get hooked on chasing that feeling.
She's lucky. A lot of people would not have the presence of mind or willpower to reject a nightly moment of joy followed by a long, sound sleep.
But the REAL problem here is something hidden that almost no one might suspect. Using a drug to kick-start a good night's sleep might lead to the kind of sleep you definitely don't want to rush into: the Big Sleep.
A study that found a link between the regular use of sedative sleep-aid drugs and a 36 percent increased risk of death during the study period. Since then, we've learned about numerous studies that reveal a higher risk of early death in subjects who use sleeping pills compared to those who do not.
This disturbing trend comes into sharp focus with a new study published in the British Medical Journal.
For two and a half years, researchers tracked about 10,500 subjects who took a wide range of "hypnotic" sleep-aids, ranging from Ambien to Lunesta, and from barbiturates to sedative antihistamines.
All of those subjects were matched for age, gender, smoking status, body mass index, marital status, prior cancer, and other factors with a group of more than 23,600 subjects who didn't use sleep aids. The results are shocking.
Subjects who took a hypnotic sleep-aid more than 132 times each year were FIVE TIMES more likely to die during the study period. And those who took between 18 and 132 doses each year were four times more likely to die.
Those are deeply troubling results. But here's the one I found most frightening: Subjects who took just 18 or fewer doses per year were more than 3.5 times more likely to die.
A risk that high from such modest use is just stunning!
Testimonial benefits of Oregano oil
The dentist told me anti-biotics were needed to rid me of sinus infection and abscessed jaw-bone. The GP said Oregano oil was a powerful full-spectrum anti-biotic and would start to work right away and two hours after initial dose, pain was much reduced and gone by the fourth day, and after 2 weeks the sinus infection and bone abscesses were gone - without adverse reactions for me! Since then I've effectively used oregano oil as a quick and safe anti-biotic, as a disinfectant directly on wounds and as a control for chronic roseacia. There have been unexpected results from using oregano oil: my 24 year Candida problem is nearly gone; my immune system is much stronger. I trust oregano oil as a powerful ally against disease. Item 2
Some time ago, a particularly nasty patch of squamous cell cancer developed on the inside of my right leg, just above the ankle. It was too large to simply excise and suture, and necessitated a graft which the surgeon took from my groin. I thus had two good sized wounds to look after. Each time the dressings were changed, I coated the area with Wild Oil of Oregano and was surprised how
quickly they healed with no problems at all. However prior to the ankle area clearing up, another small cancer developed about ½ inch away from the larger patch. It could not be cut out because there was not enough skin in this area to have a suture hold. I thus decided to try to remove the tumour with Wild Oil of Oregano. In this I was completely successful. Subsequently I removed two more tumours from my left arm the same way. I found it was necessary to saturate the tumour with Wild Oil of Oregano and then keep it covered with a band aid or dressing. Last November while on holiday on Maui, I developed what I was positive was a squamous cell cancer just above the second knuckle on my right hand and immediately started treatment as before. However, I found that swimming twice a day and the resultant exposure to salt water and more sun never gave it a proper chance to heal, and by the time I returned home it was an open sore about 1/2" across. I took this one to my GP who did a biopsy. The result was positive for squamous cell skin cancer. He insisted that I see a surgeon who, after examining the hand, made an appointment for surgery at St. Joseph's Hospital out patient clinic. While waiting I decided to try my Wild Oil of Oregano treatment and was completely successful. I then phoned the surgeon's office to cancel my appointment for surgery. However, the receptionist was adamant, I must keep my appointment. This I did and showed the doctor my hand, he said, "No, it must be the other hand". I showed him both hands and explained what I had done. "Come and see me in two weeks", he said. I am currently treating another cancer on my right elbow, and although this is a difficult area to hold a dressing, it is healing very nicely.
This past fall, a rash began to spread all over my face outside of it's regular localized area. Within days of taking Oil of Oregano internally under the tongue, the rash just simply disappeared! My energy levels and what I've heard of as "brain fog" began to dissipate. My blood pressure has since began to normalize and I am sleeping more soundly than I have in a very long time. I don't know if I'm feeling better emotionally because of these clear ups or if the oil is having that affect too! Finally, I am beginning to feel like the young, 31 year old woman I am and not a chronically ill person with a compromised immunity! I am happy to be alive and even more happy to be ACTIVELY alive!
My cardiologist warned me that my enlarged heart might never be able to repair the damage done by the virus, and night after night of struggling for breath in the hospital emergency room had me wondering if I'd live to see my children grow up. A year earlier, my mother had told me about meeting a woman who had been bed-
ridden with an unknown illness for several years but had been literally cured by taking Oil of Oregano, and I remembered this during my own illness and decided to give it a try. Literally within minutes of my first dose (four drops in a teaspoon of honey), I could breathe clearly and without effort for the first time in weeks! A week later, my blood pressure and heart rate returned to normal, and heart rate stabilized and I was able to make it through a night without sitting up in a chair in order to breathe. Since then, I have taken Oil of Oregano as soon as I've felt the beginnings of a cold or virus, and it's been completely gone within just a few doses, and sometimes after only one.
Oregano oil has proven to me to be a safe and fast working relief from the terrible cold sores I experience. My cold sores often form at those most inopportune times and hold me hostage to feeling insecure and embarrassed at the unsightly bump on my lip. Using oil of oregano has been a saving grace! As soon as I get the tingle of a cold sore I apply a drop onto my lip. I apply it 3-4 times daily. My usual medication, prescribed from a general practitioner, worked over a 5-7 day timeline (so really the virus just runs it's course). With Oil of Oregano my last few cold sores have only been present for days, they have decreased in size and heal without any mark.
I had the symptoms of a cold starting (sore throat, fatigue, some congestion)and had heard about Oil of Oregano from a friend not too long ago. Being a massage therapist I can not afford to be ill. Unlike other people I am unable to work while I have a cold. No one appreciates being coughed or sneezed on when receiving (or giving for that matter)a massage. After one day of treatment I felt almost perfect, after the second day I felt 100 percent normal!
I have Celiac Disease (must not consume wheat, barley, rye and oats)and when I eat something with gluten in it I often experience severe indigestion. This indigestion is so severe that the pain and discomfort is usually debilitating for up 4 hours. I felt this indigestion coming on and was preparing myself mentally to try to work through the pain and discomfort when I remembered that Wild Oil of Oregano is good for indigestion. I figured that I had nothing to loose trying it and everything to gain. After just one drop under my tongue my indigestion was almost immediately gone!! This was amazing because any other product I have tried before this hardly ever helped relieve my indigestion from eating gluten; and certainly never gave me instantaneous results. I was
sitting on the sofa thinking that I would need to be patient for the pain to subside when I realized that the pain was already gone! I am so pleased with Oregano oil.
My mother introduced me to oregano oil a couple of years ago. Since then, many people I talk to have used this amazing remedy. I just recently started using it on my son's warts which were not going away for months. In the last 4 days, they have shrunk significantly and I'm sure will be gone in the next week or two. For myself, I always use it for coughs and colds. Even my husband, who is very skeptical of alternative remedies, now only uses Oil of Oregano for coughs and colds.
I was at my best friends house last year, and all of a sudden my glands started to swell, I knew what was happening....It was the dreaded Strep Throat coming. I have had chronic Strep Throat, and ear infections since I was young, for this I had been on A LOT of antibiotics. I had built a dangerous immunity to the antibiotics over the years, and so nothing worked anymore. I would just have to take the antibiotics and hope that they took some sort of effect, for some kind of relief. I knew that this was wrong, but I hadn't opened my eyes to naturopathic medicine at this time in my life. So, it is in this story that I will tell you the miracle of Oil Of Oregano. My best friend says "Here, open your mouth and lift your tongue", so I did..."Wow that's an interesting taste!!" I exclaim. "It's Oil of Oregano.." my friend tells me, "it really works well, builds the immune system, and fights bacteria!" "Really??!!" I ask... "Do you take it like a vitamin??" She told me you do to boost your immune system, and you can use it topically too! I went straight to the health food store and bought Wild Oil Of Oregano. I have been taking it daily for over a year now, and I haven't had ANY Strep Throat OR Ear Infections AT ALL!!!!! It has positively changed mine and my family's life, and I know now that my immune system is getting better and better all the time. I think it even makes my hair grow faster too!!!
I suffer from IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) and it can get really bad on occasions with not one week passing without symptoms of bloating and/or painful abdominal spasms. I started taking the oil of oregano immediately and after about two weeks my symptoms reduced. I have now had no symptoms for over one and a half months and counting. It is the longest period of time I have gone without any symptoms since the IBS started. I can't tell you exactly how the oil works but I know for sure that it has done something.
I was so desperate to find a medication that would ease my 2yr old's eczema all over his body. He's been given all sorts of cream with steroids and lotions- all to no avail. Oil of oregano was recommended to me by a friend and it works wonders to my son's skin...my husband who is so careful and cautious when it comes to "natural products" was convinced when he witnessed our son sleeping well through the night...no scratching, no sleepless nights crying and scratching, and no more mittens, no more long sleeves!
Thank you for your great product! My daughter is in her early 20's and has suffered from severe IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) for years. The doctors have literally tried everything, but to no avail. This condition has been very disruptive to her life but she has always been a strong person, despite the disruption IBS has caused to her personal life. About a year ago, we were told Oil of Oregano might help a bit. Within just a few short days of taking it (she had attacks almost daily!), she experienced several pain-free days. Eventually, those days turned into weeks and months. It truly has been a miracle! As a matter of fact, she ran out a few days before the Easter long weekend and was unable to get to a bottle. By Monday morning, she was experiencing terrible IBS cramps. She went immediately and some and within an hour, the pain subsided and she felt great. Oil of Oregano is something I would recommend to anyone young or old.
Two years ago, I went to my doctor with chronic migraine symptoms and was diagnosed with hypertension. Apart from migraines, I'd never been sick, I was very active, I was 27 at the time and at 5 foot 7 inches, I weighed 120 pounds! Even my doctor was shocked. They ran a battery of tests and could find nothing wrong. The doctor was reluctant to put me on medication because I was so young. She suggested I change my eating habits and consume more foods rich in potassium, fiber and essential oils. So off I went, with my blood pressure even higher and my migraines even worse because of the constant worry. A few months ago, I was visiting a friend of mine who's a health nut and I had a migraine episode again. She went to her cupboard and took out a bottle of your oregano oil, and put three or four drops of the stuff under my tongue. I screamed at her because the taste was so strong, but within seconds the heat sensation subsided and, miraculously, so did the migraine! Needless to say, I immediately hunted down and secured a bottle for myself. I now take it religiously every day and encourage others to try it. Taking your oil has forced me to live a healthier lifestyle, because it forces me to drink more water and eat healthier meals to get the best effect from the oil. I cut down my sodium intake and use the oil to flavour my meals and soups
instead. One or two drops go a long way. My husband is amazed that I haven't been sick or complained of any aches or pains for ages. Even my mother is shocked, I've been having chronic migraines since I was a child. Now, if I even do get migraine symptoms, instead of reaching for my headache pills, I plop a drop or two or the oil under my tongue, or mix a little bit of it into my skin cream and rub it on my temples. By the way, my blood pressure has dropped a whopping ten points in eight months, WITHOUT MEDICATION, and has remained stable! I'm proud to support Canadian businesses, thanks and keep up the good work!
I had a small growth on my face by my lips. It was getting bigger and so when I read Oil of Oregano helped with warts I decided to try it. I put 1 drop of oregano in a little bit of water and rubbed it on the spot every night for only 4 nights. On the fifth day I noticed the growth had dried up and fell off. It worked great and I didn't have to go to my doctor to have it burnt off.
I have been very interested in boosting my immune system and was very intrigued when I saw an article on Oil of Oregano in a Health magazine. I have been taking it for 3 years now and am very pleased. I don't get colds or the flu anymore. If I am out and about near people with illness, I just wash my hands when I get home and take 3 drops with a tablespoon of applesauce. I was once a person that usually caught everything that was going around and even had relapses. So this is a big weight off my shoulders. I take it twice a day and feel great. As we get older and our bodies change, it is up to us to adjust accordingly. I have also tried rubbing a drop on a mosquito bite and shortly thereafter no more itching.
Last week my husband was sick with flu and cold symptoms feeling stuffed up, bad headache and upset stomach. He was looking for something to take to make him feel better. I don't believe in taking anything that isn't natural, so he couldn't find conventional medicine anywhere in the house. He said., "We never have anything around here to take, that would make me feel better!" I happened to have a bottle of oil of oregano. I mixed up 3 drops in a glass of water he drank that, and then I rubbed some on the soles of his feet. He put socks on and it seemed within minutes he was feeling pretty good. He was able to get a good night sleep. He continued doing this for the next few days. Instead of being sick the normal week, he was feeling good within 3 or 4 days. This incident made a believer out of him. I would never be without oil of oregano in the house.
