Do you have natural health idea’s, tips and helpful information for People and Pets that would benefit others? Idea’s can be in the area of food combinations, supplements, or God-given herbal helps etc. to keep us on the road to health! This would be the place to share what works for you, and/or a place to ask and find answers to natural health questions and various helps from the wealth of what has worked for you.
We can not have any medical advice or claims of healing or it will get us in trouble with the FDA. What you can share is personal testimonies of what such and such product did for you or a friend. Testimonies must be “first hand” reports and none that are 2nd or 3rd hand. So, if you have a preparation or personal “remedy” that has worked for you or a friend or family member that you can testify personally as to its result and or side effects, then by all means share.
I Am the Lord! Besides Me there is no Savior. For there is no other name under Heaven given among men by which we must be saved. For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved!...For in him we live, and move, and have our being!November 6, 2014 at 11:01 am #59039
It would be wonderful if those of you who posted your health posts on the Off Topic Sticky thread, would copy and re-post them here. This Topic is veering off of that thread to separate things out a bit for easier tracking.
Thanks so much and hugs to all of you who have an interest in Health/Natural Health information to share with everyone at Rita Now!

What do you use when you start to get symptoms of the flu like runny nose, scratchy throat, chills and such?
The first thing I use is zinc tablets or liquid. It almost immediately stops the runny nose and clears the sinuses.

Vitamin D and silver solution.Zinc is great!November 7, 2014 at 11:41 am #59150
I had very good results from using the zinc lozenges.

What do you use when you start to get symptoms of the flu like runny nose, scratchy throat, chills and such?
1. Oscillococcinum – by Boiron
2. Airborne – original brand or Equate brand
3. Swab inside of nose with just enough hydrogen peroxide on a Q-tip. The nose is where colds begin – it works!
I don’t recall which of our members posted the information on Oscillococcinum, a natural product, but it was back when one of the first flu’s was spreading fast, and people were looking for answers. It was first hand to her from a doctor and she posted it on RN.
At times, only the Oscillococcinum is needed. At times only the Airborn is needed. But at times both might be needed. In any case, both have worked for me many times.

Trust His TimingParticipant
This is the best….Take 2 Shark Liver oil (a Bells product) every day and you will never get colds or flu!!!
For Arthritis take (again a Bells product) Shark Cartilage. Totally eliminates all signs of even the worst arthritis…I was so crippled up and in pain and now feel like a limber 30 year old!!! I feel like it has been an answer to prayer-that one.
And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart.

I haven’t had a sore throat, cold, flu, sinuses etc in at least 5 years. I prayed for an answer to the horible colds and sinuses I used to get 3 to 4 times a year. Then I saw a commercial about ColdFX it’s made in Canada and I felt this was my answer to prayer. I take it any time I feel cold symptoms coming on and “prasie God” it works for me!!!

If your pet is constipated I found Pumpkin works for my cat. I buy Smiths can just pure pumpkin or you can make your own. I mix a teaspoon in his food every day. And I give him a mix of probiotics and enzines,

My cat became allergic to all chicken – it has been very difficult to find food without anything chicken. When I have found something, often she doesn’t like it! Companies are buying out companies and changing what has been quality food in the past, so this has become a consuming thing to find what will work for her.November 7, 2014 at 6:04 pm #59178
No Other Rock Natural Balance does a kibble green pea and Duck. No chicken and grain free. They also have canned foods without chicken I give it to my cats. Not sure if one of my cats is allergic to chicken or not but she scratches herself and has bald spots from licking her belly to much. I was told it could be chicken or corn etc.. so I am trying the grain free foods and she is not scratching nearly as much.

Thanks Rita May, I searched – again – today and have that one on my list to look at for the dry. I did have her on the canned food of that brand and she loved it, but then it changed. Could not see the pea bits anymore, and it looked as those there are bone shavings or fish scales in the cans now. Coming from change-overs I believe from companies buying out good companies! On top of that she somehow came down with some kind of salmonella where we had to get her to the Vet. I can’t prove that it was the cat food, especially since she had been on it for some time, but I don’t know where else it would have come from. It really has become work to find something right and good for her!November 7, 2014 at 7:28 pm #59185
The second I know hubby or one of my kids might be coming down with a cold or flu, I do the following:
*Start them on Airborne (everyone who’s old enough, anyway – I think the age is 12?)
*Have them gargle with warm salt water, and then clean the inside of each nostril with a Q-tip dipped in warm saltwater as well. Repeat 2 or 3 times per day
*Have them take a Tea Tree Oil shower: Start the bathwater, plug the bathtub, drop in 1 drop of Tea Tree Oil for kids, 2 for adults, then turn on the shower. They breathe it in as the TTO-infused steam helps open up sinuses. Tea Tree Oil is an immunobooster, and has antiviral, anti fungal and antibacterial properties – sometimes, if we catch it early enough, the TTO shower is enough to beat whatever was coming back down. (obviously, don’t do this for anyone who has a sensitivity to TTO). We do this 2-3 times per day if necessary (I just have them do it any time symptoms are really bothering them…so usually in the morning and then again before bed. Sometimes if they’re feeling particularly yucky they’ll do one midday just to relieve symptoms).
Tea Tree Oil is toxic to cats if they ingest it! We have indoor cats whose indoor enclosure is literally right across the hallway from the bathroom, though, and they have NEVER been negatively affected by the steam that comes out of the bathroom after someone has taken a TTO shower. You have to make sure you don’t get any oil directly on a cat, though, via your hands or whatever.
*I’m looking for an alternative to Vick’s VapoRub simply because I don’t want to use any petroleum-based products, but for now – as soon as the sick person is out of the shower, I rub a pea-sized amount of Vick’s on their feet and cover with socks. I don’t know why this works, but I’ve personally watched it beat back the flu in 24 hours even without ANY other remedies mentioned here. I also rub some on their chest just because it’s soothing and helps with stuffiness.
*We use Hylands’s homeopathic cold/flu remedy. I’ve only used the children’s remedy. There have been times it works AMAZING, and times when it just seems to work “OK”.
*If I think there is ANY kind of infection starting to rear its ugly head (ear, tonsils, etc.) I immediately start administering 1 tsp. of Manuka Honey 3x’s per day, 1,000mg of Vitamin C 3x’s per day, and 1,000mg of garlic 2x’s per day (just once for kids). In our experience, this remedy beats back infection much much faster than prescribed antibiotics (usually within 36 hours). Nobody in our home has taken prescribed antibiotics in nearly 20 years – including all of my children (two of them have NEVER taken prescribed antibiotics in their entire lives).
PREVENTION is the best medicine, though! Eating clean, avoiding as much sugar as possible, and making sure your Vitamin D levels are normal can make a person’s body REALLY good at fighting off everything that goes around. In our house, even my kids know to get outside and try to get 15 minutes of sunshine every day even if it’s so cold they don’t want to necessarily stay out for very long (though they usually do).
My oldest child (22) was the kind of kid who NEVER got sick. Then she got Mono as a teen and she was sick for 6 months! After that, it seemed like she caught EVERYTHING that went around – it really was pretty awful. Virus after virus, infection after infection…ugh! During the last 6 months she has been juicing (carrots and green apples), getting enough sunshine, eating gluten-free about 90% of the time, avoiding food colorings, processed foods, and eating a lot less dairy and sugar. She’s been surrounded by sick people for the past couple of months (between her roommates and the family she nannies for…) and hasn’t caught ANYTHING. Finally, her immune system has bounced back – and I’m absolutely convinced her dietary changes had everything to do with it.December 8, 2014 at 12:58 am #61153

We created the Off-Topic Threads for members, but if you don’t find the Off Topic thread’s interesting or useful, they will eventually be deleted for lack of interest.
