The right plants will do much good

Hello Readers, how are you today ?

I am healing from the dog attack on July 29th 2015 which resulted in 8 stitches on the top of my right hand due to a number of different non-traditional methods I am trying and then sharing with my public.

In addition to the steri-strips in place over the healing tear in the skin, sea salt water soaks, rubber ball exercises, ingestion of more vitamin E per week AND some deeper tissue massage, I am going to try Royal Jelly once the strips have fallen off because of my research and recent discovery that propolis, the resin collected by bees from certain tree bark and plants, is a combination of that resin with what bees have in their saliva, a more natural healing can be accelerated without side effects. My blood type cannot properly metabolize the enzymes and proteins in Aloe, so I have stopped using that holistic plant treatment.

Scabbing and scarring of the integument when torn and traumatized is best dealt with when natural lubricants like Olive oil, Aloe or Royal Jelly is gently massaged into the damaged area, or so I will prove to myself in a week or so. The hand is tight right now although range of motion is seemingly appropriate consider the extent of the damage done to the first two layers of flesh; however I am worried about muscle re-generation, if I will actually be able to play guitar again without some discomfort...

In the mean time does anyone know of any plant cellulose I can ingest more often to create more collagen to repair below the subcutaneous tissue that was ripped into ?

First Aid Kit

I'm looking to put together a first aid kit for both my car and for camping.  I managed to find some ammunition boxes that will do very well for keeping things intact and dry.  I would like to put a few holistic items in there as well.  What would you recommend be good things to put in along with the traditional items?  Lavendar oil will certainly be going in, but other than that, I can't think of much else.

Clogged ears

Hello all.

My situation is-- Yesterday I wanted to clean my ears because there's earwax buildup. I wanted to do a deep cleaning, usually I use Q-tips to sorta clean. So on with yesterday, I used the Debrox cleaning kit. The box came with medicated drops, and a rubber syringe ball that rinses your ear after you put drops in. My problem is I think the kit clogged my ears even more! I think it clogged my ears because 1). I put the drops in (that's wet), 2). It's required we rinse with water using the rubber syringe ball (also wet).

Something like this happend to me 5-6 months ago, and was much worse. Where I took a shower and used a Q-tip afterwards and water got pushed down my ear with earwax I lost COMPLETE hearing in both that time, and cried all night because I was afraid I lost hearing. But eventually my hearing came back from that, naturally. Right now after using Debrox my left ear is the worse one because it's quite muffled. And both ears are feeling stuffy.

I plan to (I hate to do this) but maybe put just two more drops of Debrox in, and then take a steaming hot shower to help it go away. Yesterday I used 5-6 drops.

So does anyone know any home remedies anything--- that can make the ear not feel clogged, to help me resume my entire hearing?????????  I don't want to go to a doctor for this! It's not like I used something so dangerous...I just used the ear kit, and water. It's like maybe this whole thing will be back to normal after a few days.

It's summer now too and it's also been very hot, in a way I feel like the heat is making it worse. Like there's no moisture. It's just DRY CLOGGED EARS. And I've already tried all the weird popping, closing nose, hop one foot solution to unclog ears. Not working.

Next time I plan to be really careful about cleaning ears, no more dropping things in or sticking things in.
Hi guys.

In this times, the collective awareness is changing for the positive form (in some cases), that's why that much entrepreneurs and developers dedicate your minds and strivings in create new technologies and solutions for the environment.

In my country, Chile, an industrial mechanic and entrepreneur (with whom I had the pleasure of working) was dedicated to create electric cars, this cars will go on sale soon.

I post the links of the cars and photos of the models

Summertime armpit chafe

I'm using milk of magnesia for deodorant, and really love how well it's working for me. But last year I had bad chafing on my underarm, which I'd never experienced before. It's now hot enough that I'm starting to chafe again, and I'm looking for something that I can either add to the milk of magnesia to reduce friction, or another product that won't stain, smell (scents bother me, and I don't want to smell like most essential oils), or reduce the effectiveness, that I can use in addition to prevent chafing. It's just at my upper arm, right where the armpit ends and arm starts. Right now I'm putting neosporin on it at night to protect it and help it heal, but I'd like something to prevent it that won't wreck clothes. I prefer not to use stick deodorants at all as anything that touches my skin ends up being a host for bacteria, after just a couple of uses all my stick deodorants end up adding BO instead of taking it away.

Hi Guys and Gals!

I think I like this community as much as the one I just started. its for E.O.'s tho.
Its wonderful trying to get a healthy maintained lifestyle isn't it?

Natural Cold Sore treatment?

Is there a natural product or a DIY for one for treating cold sores? I know they're HSV-1 so you can't cure them, and that reducing stress will reduce outbreaks, but I am thoroughly annoyed the only product I could find at my very large supermarket was a plastic-based gel with the main ingredients of benzocaine and zinc oxide.
