Hi All I hope no one will mind if I repost some good herbal medicine ideas which were posted on the old forum.

OK, for people who don't know about green walnut hulls, walnuts grow on trees. They look like green apples growing on the tree because the walnuts are inside the fruit (hull). In early autumn, the hulls turn black and wrinkly like prunes. Then, when they are black enough, the nuts fall off the trees still inside the hulls. To get at the walnut, you scrape the black hulls off with your fingers.

To get them while they are still green, you must pick them. However, the nuts inside will not be ripe. Only the hulls are useful at that point. Perhaps the best bet for most of you who don't live in hot, arid areas is to find an herbal / health food store that sells green walnut hulls. Ask specifically for those from Black (English) Walnut trees.

From Barb (me, Yowbarb) Originally posted Thursday, July 24, 2008
Just a few stray ideas to share:
The book, "Curing with Cayenne" should be read and the materials stocked up on. Cayenne can just about raise the dead, and it will stop a hemorrhage.

Helpful substances I like

I have used Valerian herb for relaxation and help in sleeping.
I have used Uva Ursi and buchu teas when my kidneys seemed stressed.
Alfalfa and mint tea helped my varicose veins for awhile when p.g. but forgot to keep them up....
Golden seal I soaked my son's thumb in when he had an infected cat bite. He came home after it had been festering for three days. I told him we will try this for two hours if it doesn't help will have to go get you antibiotics. I made a strong batch of golden seal and had him soak his thumb in as hot a tea as he could comfortable stand. Meanwhile he drank a weaker batch, still definitely tasted like medicine.
After three soaks and three cups of the tea spaced out over a couple hours his thumb was just about normal again and required no doctor visit.
Co Q10 anti aging, strengthens all the internal organs
cranberry extract pills most definitely help my kidneys
Some seaweeds, algae, kelp strengthen me
Carrot juice
raw garlic have stopped a really bad throat infection - stopped it so I needed no doc or antibiotic. [/i] Louisiana Hot Sauce -of a smooth filtered variety - I like the Crystal brand made in New Orleans. Cayenne it can stop allergic reactions, asthma, colds, and believe it or not indigestion and/or cardiovascular symptoms. I am not saying it can replace medicines permanently but it definitely is something to keep around.
There are some that seem to have chili added and that's not as easy to actually take a spoonful of. I like Crystal brand Louisiana Hot Sauce from New Orleans.
I use cajun seasoning that has cayenne pepper in it, regularly and consider it a food and a medicine.
I did the Hulda Reghner Clark RN PHD book, the cure for All Cancers remedy -
green hull of the black walnut,
wormwood tincture,
cloves....(Not because I had a diagnosis of cancer, but because it is a good health procedure for all people to do.)
Rascal is a brand of anti parasite herbal concoction. I am not sure what plants it is made of. It is powerful and I have read testimonials on it.
Last but not least a simple substance, pectin such as the powdered apple pectin you can get in little packages in the canning aisle. My mother used to read lots of preventative med articles and she said pectin was known to be able to draw out toxins from the intestines. There have been times when I must have been really toxic and had to do some health programs. One little trick to feeling better really fast was to eat some powdered pectin.

The last tidbit about pectin I just now added.

Thanks for posting that, Barb.  I'll be posting more on this thread as I get more done on my cookbooks.  Not the whole cookbooks, though, because there would be no sense in selling them since all the recipes would be here.  LOL.

Cheers, Janice

Herbal recipes for cough - Peter Hutch wrote it.

Home Made Herbal Recipes for Cough
Posted: Jul 17, 2008
Herbal Syrup Recipes

As a substitute for brown sugar, for every cup of liquid you may can add one or two cups of wholesome, alternative sweeteners,
such as vegetable glycerine, honey, maple syrup or even Karo syrup.
The thicker the syrup is when you add the sweetener - and the sweeter it is - the better the preserving qualities, and the less
you will have to cook it, thereby preserving more nutrients.
Slice onions and place in a
pan (I used an iron skillet). Drizzle lemon juice and honey over onions. Turn oven to lowest heat and place pan inside; cook 45
minute to 1 hour. Pour off juice and discard onions.
Store "syrup" (juice) in a glass bottle and label. Makes about 1 cup cough syrup.
Combine Lemon juice and honey in a bowl. Slowly stir in the water. Store in a covered jar in the refrigerator - take 1-2 tbsp as
needed for cough.

A natural homemade recipe for cough
Mother Nature bestows so many gifts upon us, providing all we could ever need for a long and healthy life; foods to nourish us,
flowers, herbs and essential oils to restore harmony to the body-mind for example.
Little Miss Green developed a cough last week. Luckily we have thyme and sage in the garden for making a soothing and immune
boosting tea.
A couple of sprigs of thyme on top of the wood burner to keep the air free from germs and her cough was soon gone.
Coltsfoot and Horehound are expectorant herbs that should be used with a light hand - not
too much, or it may make you cough too much because of their strong expectorant properties.

To the liquid herb
concentrate add either 1 cup of honey, (for children over 2 years of age) or 1 cup of white grape juice concentrate and warm
the liquid/tea mixture together, stirring well for about 20 minutes over low heat.
Any cough persisting more than a week, accompanied by headache or fever, and any cough which is productive of thick yellow or
green mucous should be evaluated by a physician.

One precaution I have read is regarding the honey:
Do NOT give honey to children under 1 year of age unless it is pasteurized or boiled for five minutes.

Linda and others have posted some good natural medicine info elsewhere on the forum, will find and consolidate (won't delete other posts.) We will get the word out wherever we can.
Very important to have some natural medicines to fall back on in the years ahead.
Please post here anything you have tried, read about or wonder about in the way of natural medicines.
Just some example of a few things I know have worked on myself or other:

Louisiana Hot Sauce (good smooth kind like Crystal brand from New Orleans) helps with allergic bumps on the throat, colds, beginning of what could be an asthma attack (wheezing) extreme congestion.
The main ingredient: Cayenne, a remedy the French brought with them to Louisiana.

Yerba Santa (Holy Herb) from Mexico or Arizona can help an asthma attack not get so bad or sometimes make it go away.

Valerian helps the mind, soothing and relaxing and helping sleep deep restful dreams. It helps to take it in the evening and keep one besides the bed on a table with water. If wake in middle of night pop one, will help go back to sleep faster.
Suggestion: Try it out on weekend or sometime when you are not punching a time clock etc.

Blackstrap mollasses -about a teaspoon a day will help with anemia

Goldenseal herb Infection such as a festering cat bite. Give a cup every half hour about three doses. Meanwhile soaking the bit area in very warm very strong golden seal tea
Just dump the tea leaves in purified water in a lttle pot. There should be signs it is getting better fast. If not go to doc. If rabid animal go to doc anyway but soak the wound in the goldenseal  regardless. First of course rinse it off with water and dump peroxide on it.
Only reason I know about this, my son was at friends for three days and when he came back he had a cat bite on his thumb. Starting to fester. Very unusual because son likes cats and not mean to them. Years later son's friend admitted he "had been teasing his cat and egging him on to go nuts" so he would bite my son. Which happened and I didn't know for 3 days.
Back when son came home with the bite it was starting to fester. I said, well we will try something and if it isn't a lot better in an hour we will go up to the Children's Hospital ER. So I dumped the golden seal into purified water in a pot made about six seven cups. Immediately poured some for my son to sip on. Cooled it down just a bit and had him put the bitten thumb right into the super strong goldenseal tea and soak it. He soaked it for half hour then I would dump that out and have him soak the thumb in a fresh batch of tea. I made him drink three full cups of the moderate-strength goldenseal tea. Not as strong as the soak tea. After about 1 1/2 hours of soaking and drinking he rinsed off the thumb with lukewarm water and looked at it. It was almost back to normal already so we didn't have to go to ER to get it cleaned and some penicillin.

Another time a big pet Monitor Lizard jumped up to the top of the cage and bit his finger. That time we were out of state and I had no goldenseal so we did have to go straight to the ER. (My son in law had a Monitor at the time I was there helping my daughter when she was p.g. )

Mentioning this because random cuts scrapes bites will need attention. There may be something better than goldenseal but I don't know of it. It has worked for our family.

Calcium magnesium fizzy drink powder. I keep it besides the hot water dispenser or teapot.
I hobble in and make a cup of it warm if I have a bad leg cramp. Sorry to be so autobiographical various injuries and arthritis cause some cramps. Most of the time it's fine. But - as a side note muscle aches and cramps could easily happen to a group under stress especially older folks or kids with growing pains. so I recommend having a water heating source and some cal mag and a cup. Better to have some source of pain relief than nothing.

MINT: I think it was Linda who posted mint is a good pain reliever. I never knew that.

I took mint for years for stomach sort of got lazy and took pepto instead.

Alfalfa Tea: Varicose vains during pregnancy: Naturopath told me to stand mid calf in cold water nightly and to drink alfala tea and mint tea so I did and it definitely helped.

Uva Ursi Tea:  Have used it for kidney aches and signs of kidney stress during pregnancy. Worked like a top. Note: Check with obstetrician if P.G. always. If no one there take herbs anyway you have to do something.

Buchu Tea:  Naturopath prescribed it later after I had my baby. I took it for kidneys. Eventually the ache went away I get it sometimes which tells me I need to pay attention.

Chamomile Ancient Egyptians used it as an anti aging herb. I was taking it for a calming herb then read of its anti aging properties. I found I was starting to look better after using it.

Cranberry juice, sauce, capsules do help the kidneys. They also have an antibacterial effect on the digestive system. I met an African American woman once who said if she keeps up the cranberry capsules her Lupus stays in remission. We do whatever we can. A few years ago, I met her on a train and we rapid-fire shared information. I mentioned the cranberry capsules and she told me about the remission, just before she jumped off at her stop.  That was wonderful. Years later I figured out she probably had FMF, but I hadn't heard of it yet. [More explanation later posts.]

Saffron, Colchicine Uses: Gout, FMF (Familial Mediterranian Fever more on that later it is a genetic inflammatory thing.)
Colchicine:  A synthetic form of the crocus flower.[/b] This is a very ancient remedy - the crocus flower goes back to the arthritis and multi symptoms of the Pharaohs. Colchicine is the name of the med and a certain small % of people need to get on it and stay on it.
I would recommend that natural crocus -except it is very expensive. Crocus not to mess with anyway unless expert on it. It is poisonous to a degree and can only be used in small doses. - but -the prized herb saffron is made of crocus! 
[Note:  If anyone is interested in the subject of FMF and colchicine, see the Melungeon Health Network/Nancy Sparks Morrison, etc.  Yahoo groups: FMF Support.

I recommend if someone has multi symptoms and not getting anywhere with doc go to a good rheumatoid specialist and ask for a trial run of a small dose of colchicine. For a possible condition of FMF. Familial Mediterranean Fever. Ease into it really slow. If you tolerate it, consider staying on it. There is a method to get on it, diluted at first. Once on one 0.06 mg tablet stably work up to two if prescribed. If most of the symptoms seem to abate then the person may indeed have FMF.  You can send Nancy a message there. ]
I do recommend a survivaol group having at least a small stash of it. Along with a printout from Nancy Sparks Morrison on how to take it, etc.]

Well I hope this sharing of natural and medical tidbits is helping someone somewhere. Hope not too much. If anyone has questions send me PM I will post to you the references so you can decide for yourself.

Members please share your natural medicine and herbal tips of all kinds here.

- Yowbarb  P.S. I am not angainst traditional medicine. I  just feel we need to be prepared to do without that at times. Herbs can help with so many things maybe not necessary to run to doc all the time anyway.

Barb, love the calcium magnesium drink, I use it all the time. I will add that it helps with constipation as well, especially the magnesium alone drink. Just to clear that up, you can get the fizzy drink in just magnesium, or calcium/magnesium combo. I didn't want it to be confusing.

Great idea on the hot sauce, never heard of that one.

Holy Basil If you have a lot of stress, physical and emotional, try holy basil (tulsi in India). This natural remedy is popular for its anti-inflammatory effects and antioxidant properties, but most well-known for its success in relieving stress. Not only will holy basil reduce your stress level and help to calm those possibly- imploding emotions, this helpful herb will add to your immunity levels and protect you from other serious bodily complications in the future.  This is one I take pretty regular.

Olive Leaf extract. I asked a Naturopath Dr. and herbal specialist, what one herb should I get to fight flu last winter,he told me olive leaf extract. Although I didn't have to use it, I now keep it on hand just in case.
Although olive leaf extract is classed as an alternative herbal remedy, it can be helpful in the treatment of the common cold, flu, cold sores (herpes), ear infections, eye infections, nose and throat infections, impetigo, pink eye, parasites, and a host of bacterial, viral and fungal infections.

Hope these help someone,

Linda :)

Hi Linda - I am finally done editing myself so I saw your post!
Yes true a person can get straight Magnesium drink and also the cal mag.
I don't take it as much as I should.
(Sometimes I have to re-groove in the old good habits.) Glad you take it!

I have heard wonderful things about the olive and also (I think) Basil.
Will try these for my immune and to help others.

I recommend people try what you have posted here.  8)  8)   8)   Yowbarb
