    Here's a very good tooth ache remedy:


    2 floz Hydrogen peroxide
    1 tsp iodized salt

    heat the mixture in a warm water bath, one container in another.

    take about 1/2 the mixture into your mouth and keep it there, on and around the tooth ache site until it's done foaming, spit and rinse and then repeat with the other half of the mixture...............do not swallow the mixture!:eusa_whistle:

    Instead of using Afrin to clear nasal congestion, take a cup of warm water, add about a teaspoon of non-iodized table salt and mix it up.

    tilt your head back, and pour the water into one nostril until it starts running out of the other. At that point, snort it in while keeping your head tilted back, and then clear your throat like if you were hocking a loogie, and spit.

    Repeat for other nostril. Works wonders. And it keeps you clear from the nose all the way down to the chest if you do it daily.

    Another one is pure vanilla extract. Rub it directly on. It doesn't take much. Works great for teething.

    Yes that's good for babies.................my remedy should NOT be used for babies they'll swallow it..............it's for adult bad teeth......................here is another for adults.......................brew two cloves of raw broken garlic in 2 floz HP for about 15 minutes for actually killing the infection..................follow previous instruction (use only the liquid and you can reuse the garlic multiple times).................I've personally done both and they work well with no pain medication.


    I did the salt remedy until I was able to get the garlic, HP by itself wasn't as affective, I wasn't close to any grocery stores, I was waaay back in the Adirodacks and had to drive quite a way, at least the salt concoction kept my face from falling off until I found the garlic.:rolleyes: :eusa_whistle:

    For canker sores use powdered Cream of Tartar (spice aisle). It numbs them and dries them up at the same time.

    I don’t know much about herbal medicine beyond taking green tea regularly. I hear that it is good for you.

    For myself I can't be completely angry at the pharmaceuticals. If it wasn't for modern meds I wouldn't be here. 2 of my 5 kids wouldn't be here.

    There has to be a balance. There are other options out there for most things. But things like antibiotics for strep throat, can't be replicated in herbal meds. But they are not needed for most ear infections. Better to use home treatments than jump to the meds.
