Do you have some natural remedies for health and wellness that you swear by? Maybe it’s Apple Cider Vinegar, Vicks VapoRub, or Listerine. Here are the items that I always have on hand. You just never know when you’re gonna need them.
Disclaimer: These are things that I’ve used for myself, my family, and my friends for many years. However, obviously I’m not a doctor and I would recommend checking with yours before trying something new.
Barbara’s (not so) secret health and wellness natural remedies.
1. American Biotech Labs Silver Biotics
Colloidal Silver is a natural antibiotic, antifungal, and antiviral. For this reason, it works to ease symptoms from colds, flu, sinus infections, and allergies.
Liquid Colloidal Silver also helps with bacterial infections including issues with the respiratory system, ears, or pink eye. As a matter of fact, it can be taken internally, sprayed on the skin, dropped into eyes, or used as a nasal spray. (Please be sure to read any precautions on the bottle.)
2. Another great Colloidal Silver natural remedy is American Biotech Labs Silver Biotics Silver Gel.
Just like liquid Colloidal Silver, Silver Gel helps health and wellness as a natural antibiotic, antifungal, and antiviral.
Personally, I have seen it work on pimples, blackheads, rashes, cuts, burns, bug bites, and poison ivy or sumac. Even more, I use it as a primer under makeup to smooth out fine lines. To say nothing of, my teenage grandson uses it for scalp problems. (But, please don’t let him know I told you!)
Colloidal Silver Gel has been known to help with ringworm, Candida, thrush, and other fungal infections by promoting natural healing. It is also said to work with other conditions such as psoriasis, eczema, and rosacea by reducing redness, inflammation, and pain.
And so, I guess you can see why I’m a fan of Silver Gel.
3. Ban Lan Gen Chong Ji
Over the years, I can’t tell you how many of my family, friends, and co-workers have said to me, “I feel like I’m coming down with something. Do you have any of that Chinese natural remedy?“
The Ban Lan Gen Chong Ji product that I use comes in individual packets that mix with hot water. As a result, it’s a warm and tasty combination of Southern Isatis, Dandelion, and Violet. Oh, yeah, maybe the fact that it’s sweetened with cane sugar helps, too. (The package has a warning, “Contains sugar – diabetics use with caution.)
4. Aromatherapy Essential Oil Diffuser
There are endless uses for essential oils. Not only can they be used as all-purpose household cleaners and shoe deodorizers, but you can also put a few drops in the dishwasher for a cleaner rinse.
However, you can’t beat the mood-enhancing power of aromatherapy.
5. Celestial Seasonings Sleepytime Extra Tea Bags
I love a little Sleepytime Extra at night to help me wind down from a day with my young grandson. What’s more, I won’t lie, if something’s got me a little anxious, I’ll have a cup of Sleepytime Extra during the day.
The ceremony of tea drinking is important to me, so I make a thing of it. For example, first I get out my special Sleepytime Extra teacup. Then, I’ll bring a fresh cup of purified water to a boil and pour it over the teabag. Finally, after 6 minutes (time for a quick meditation), I remove the bag and enjoy my drink.
Finally, I’d like to add that what works for me might not work for you. I believe in and expect results when I use these products. Maybe that’s what it takes – belief in the natural remedies that are available to all. I don’t know. What do you think?
