Because sore throats are the devil.

Winter sore throat “tea”. In a jar, combine lemon slices, organic honey and sliced ginger. Close jar and put it in the fridge, it will form into a “jelly”. To serve: Spoon jelly into mug and pour boiling water over it. Store in fridge 2-3 months

Reminder for myself. Trying to intake the most nutritious foods for this month of Ramadan. One meal a day is not always enough to get what my body needs every day but the discipline and willpower I have now is worth the temporary trade. Namaste 💕

Many natural hot springs in Japan and other countries like France such as the Holy Spring of Lourdes, boasts miraculous healing powers. Scores of people sit in these hot springs for hours, not only to relax, but to also benefit from the therapeutic qualities that are now being attributed to the recent discovery of the presence of Germanium in the springs.

We now present to you our valued customers, the healing effect of these famous hot springs in a simple bead that contains 99.99% pure non-organic Germanium. This bead, when adhered to affected areas of the body, is known to diminish pain and improve performance.

Non-organic Germanium can be found in the minerals within the soil of the earth’s crust. A solid substance, it is harvested from the earth much like Titanium is. In nature, non-organic Germanium particles are absorbed into the soil and ground water, creating the healing hot springs and eventually turning into organic Germanium, which is found in plants such as agaricus mushrooms, garlic, ginseng, etc.-plants that are known to have medicinal qualities.

Non-organic Germanium, under specific conditions, is a semiconductor of electricity. Free electrons, vibrating on the surface of Germanium particles, move with the slightest change in temperature and light.

It is a known fact that within the human body there is a balance of positive and negative electrical currents that regulate the various bodily functions. When this balance falls out of sync due to stress, overwork, and /or a lack of sleep, the body begins to ache as a result. These aches and pains, a signal to the body to achieve balance once again, is caused by too many positive ions. The body must now gain negative ions, which is known to improve blood circulation and balance the body’s bio electricity. In turn, the compensation of negative ions increase the body’s natural healing ability.


View down the hallway in the Middletown State Hospital through a seclusion room in the violent ward.  Seclusion rooms were once very prominently used in the asylum system; sometimes, orderlies would stick a straitjacketed patient in one for days - or even weeks - at a time, before drugs such as chlorpromazine (Thorazine) could help to control patients.  As early as the late 1800s, however, superintendents were beginning to realize that they were more harmful than helpful in most cases.  Here is the view a patient would have through a door in an upstate NY asylum; this tiny little 3-inch window was really there so that nurses and orderlies could have a view in.

Over-the-Counter Treatment Options

Fibromyalgia OTC treatments often include analgesics such as acetaminophen and other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). Examples of these are:

  • Tylenol and Panadol, which are acetaminophens
  • Ibuprofen (Advil and Motrin)
  • Naproxen sodium (Aleve)
  • Ketoprofen (Orudis KT)
  • Aspirin

These oral medications reduce pain and inflammation but are less powerful than prescription drugs like narcotics. They work by blocking the production of prostaglandins in the body; these substances cause pain and inflammation as a reaction to injury, infection and stress. Although less potent, they are useful adjuncts to therapy and can be used together with most medications to relieve muscle and joint pains.

Common side effects include gastric irritation, nausea and vomiting, diarrhea, rash, headaches and dizziness. They may also interact with other medications such as lithium, methotrexate, warfarin, antihypertensive drugs and diuretics. Caution must be observed, especially if they are to be taken chronically for fibromyalgia symptoms.

Natural remedies which are available as OTC treatments for fibromyalgia include herbal supplements and other homeopathic remedies. Some examples are:

  • For anti-inflammatory and pain relief – turmeric, devil’s claw root, willow bark, licorice root, dandelion, pine-bark, cayenne
  • For symptoms of fatigue - Siberian ginseng, valerian root
  • For antioxidant and detoxifier effects to boost the immune system - garlic, cayenne, echinacea, goldenseal, astralagus, myrrh, grape seed extract, and chaparral
  • To relieve anxiety, depression and nervousness – gorse, aspen and impatiens, St. John’s Wort

In using herbs and homeopathic remedies, one must be careful not to overdose or take these substances indiscriminately. Although they are considered natural and safe, they can also have potent effects and may have side effects.

I was just assaulted by breast milk

I have an injury on my left hand and Lindy swears that breast milk has powerful healing qualities and to her credit I have seen it heal up some of Ashtyn’s scratches pretty quickly.

But today, when I refused to be medicated by the boob, Lindy leapt on top of me, pinned me to the couch, and squirted breast milk on me until I had no fight left.
