Something to think about…
Copied from a friend, and I whole heartedly agree.
The wisest teacher
The greatest temple
The ultimate medicine

Its because they, the doctor’s, are taught and trained by big pharma and it’s all about the dollar. There is no profit in curing, profit is only in treating! There are some doctor’s that still have a good heart, I used to have one…but she left and opened her own practice in Germantown, which is way to far to go especially when sick.
**ashwagandha is often used in formulations prescribed for stress, strain, fatigue, pain, skin diseases, diabetes, gastrointestinal disease, rheumatoid arthritis, and epilepsy .It is also employed as a general tonic to improve energy levels, health, and longevity , and topically as an analgesic (Ashwagandha | Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (mskcc.org) )
I know I’ve stated this before, but I will share again … I’m personally not against meds, and grateful for them in emergencies and when all else fails, but we have strayed so far from our natural state and the health of our nation shows.
I do take over the counter allergy medicines/allergy spray and pain medicine (tylenol) when needed.
Below is a list of alternatives I’ve used/continue to use:
laundry detergent: baking soda/sea salt/vinegar
fabric softener: vinegar/salt (pinch)/lemon juice
nasal spray: sea salt/baking soda/distilled water (boiled and cooled or melted ice are examples of distilled water)
pain medicine: (for headaches) ginger lemonade – boil slices of ginger, let cool…store ginger water in cool, dark place; when needed add a couple of teaspoons to lemonade and ice and sip
*the sun and grass can be used as a bleaching agent: lay freshly washed laundry on the grass in the sun, flipping after a couple hours (doing this in the privacy of your backyard is probably best 🙂 )
*vinegar is a great alternative to bleach when cleaning hard surfaces (considering you don’t need to worry about covid, of course); I have used vinegar/water on my hardwood floors
*mix lemon juice and hydrogen peroxide for a more natural bleach
*wash hair with DAWN dishsoap to help curb dandruff (only once a week)
*Coconut Oil: hair conditioner, SPF, “mouth wash”
*eating healthy, getting plenty of exercise, fresh air and sunshine can be of great importance – oh, and being well rested
I have often said that anti-depressant meds don’t work – you need to be able to change the situation that is depressing you, otherwise you will need more and more and more… My mom was depressed for a while before she passed away. The doctor’s put her on anti-depressants, but it didn’t seem to work, no matter how much they adjusted the prescription. The problem? She felt lonely, left behind, and it was depressing her. She couldn’t drive, many friends were too busy to make time for her…so my dad and I adjusted our schedules. Got her to the YMCA swimming! That by itself helped immensely! She made new friends, reconnected with some old friends, and got out of the house a couple times a week. No more anti-depressants needed!
There is so much more, but I’m going to leave it here for now! I think I have gone on long enough!
hope you have a great day!
thanks for stopping by!!
