Scurvy is simply a lack of Vitamin C.
Long ago they thought it was a 'disease'.
What if Cancer was a lack of..... ?

Have you ever wondered WHAT truly is a safe insecticide ??
Well, for thousands of years people have used the oil of the Neem tree. Pests hate it.
It is a fantastic ingredient that can be used for almost anything.
Use it in the garden to keep pests away, and have a safe and healthy garden at the same time! Easy to find...easy to apply!
Here are some GREAT online articles on this amazing stuff ! ♥
I love it.
Application Rates for gardens
Mix 1 tsp of neem oil and 1/2 tsp of liquid dish soap to 1 quart of water, or 4 tsp of neem oil and 2 tsp of liquid dish soap to 1 gallon of water. Shake well. (Neem oil mixes easier with warm water.) Spray the diluted solution generously on all leaf surfaces.
What If Everything You Know About Depression Was Wrong?
Depression may not always be a chemical imbalance.
When my children were little and anyone of them had an earache (if ever since they were healthy most of the time) I reached for the good old remedies of Olive Oil and garlic to fix that problem.
I would just mix a tiny bit of fresh garlic juice into some olive oil and then drop a few drops into their infected ears. This worked wonderfully.
Here is a link to a good article about 5 home remedies that work and you should have at home already.
These remedies help with ANY infection...just make sure the garlic is not too strong for tender delicate tissues on your body. Otherwise, these natural ones work wonderfully without having to go get chemically man-made remedies first.
Now this doctor has common sense!

May you have GOOD health, GOOD knowledge... and the wisdom of God to guide you to finding both.
In your search for happiness and success, I believe it is found within you, all along.
Dr.s will tell you this is not true, but I don't take their word for it.
I use common sense and my own experiences to teach me the truth.
Below, I have posted a FANTASTIC Natural Flu Shot recipe that is new to me. At first I didn't know if it worked, or not, but it sounded like a good one! Trust me, it WORKS!
Hopefully you will never have to try it...but if you do....here it is.....
Over the last few days, (against my better judgement about going to the store to pick up very important non-related prescriptions that were very much needed and almost a must), I again picked up another yucky Flu virus from those who I ran into and they were coughing all over me!! Uggggg! (figures)
Yes, the news on TV for weeks have warned people everyday that this year the U.S. is having an epidemic of flu viruses on the rampage which are killing even healthy middle age people and children.
Age groups that are not known normally to die from these dangerous viruses!! Yikes!
I took my chances in public, and why am I not surprised that I caught the Flu again.
This time I was aware of the possibility and prepared of what I was experiencing or what to look for.... and so was much more ready to fight!!
So, this is what happened.
I first felt a bit of a soreness in my sinuses, a day after my day around sick people. So, I immediately used my 'Netti pot' to flush out my sinuses with saline water. That helped.
The next day came a bit of achiness, so I knew that I was brewing something!!
I came back to my own advice online and found several things that appeared to be good recipes to fight the flu. But which one?!?!
One in particular stood out that I had never tried before and so I was willing to give it a 'shot' (play on words) since I was curious if it worked and now was my chance to test it out. THE SOONER THE BETTER!
The Natural Flu Shot! (posted below)
I had all the ingredients at home. (most people do) However, it is also easy to substitute these things for similar stuff. Trust me, as long as you have the main gest of it...it will work. It only take a minute to whip up. (Easy Peasy)
It calls for 3 cups of Pineapple juice. (Make sure it is the REAL stuff...not sugar flavored juice) I had a big can of Pineapple tidbits on hand (without sugar) and I just opened it and poured it in the blender.
It asks for dry ginger. I happen to have a small fresh nub of Ginger root so I threw it in the blender. (I could easily used my ginger in a squeeze bottle that I have)
It asks for garlic.
You can use dry, diced in a jar, or peeled fresh, just don't use garlic salt in your cooking shelve (not quite the same thing). I always powdered and have a jar of diced garlic in the fridge, so it was easy to throw in a small spoonful into the blender.
It calls for 6 lemons juiced. Fresh is always better, but hey just use 3/4 C. of your all ready made lemon juice in a bottle, which should always be in your fridge, anyway. If not, go buy it at the store. No need to buy and juice lemons since they are expensive and time consuming.
(This is a MUST ingredient or juice in a bottle, for any kitchen for home remedies period!!)
The honey and cayenne is self explanatory.
Mix all together.
Turn on the blender for 5 minutes and let it all blend very well.
Because I threw in a can of pineapple, liquid and all, I had to strain this blended recipe once it was done blending.
I just used a metal strainer I had on hand.
I could have easily just drank it just like it was, but, I decided to strained it.
At first I thought this might taste bad, but when I tried it, it was very nice. Easy to drink.
It says take 'a cup of this' 4 times a day but I just take a small juice glass of it, whenever. About every 3-4 hours.
I even add a bit of water to my glass after I pour about 1/2 cup of Natures Flu shots, in my glass. It is watered down, but I am still taking it, right?
I like this, since that way I am making sure to get my plenty of water fluids at the same time.
OK, here comes the kicker!
After an hour of taking this concoction I found that I was feeling MUCH better. NO WAY!! How cool is that?
So, I thought that I would know better throughout the night since night time is when most people (myself) feel much worse when fighting a virus.
Low and Behold!
I felt MUCH better throughout the night! Yes, I have normally have very difficult nights sleeping anyway, due to my chronic back pain, but hey....the flu was NOT effecting me!! Wow!
It was as though the flu was leaving my body and quick!!
Seriously....it was amazing. I did notice that after so many hours after taking these 'Flu shots' I could tell every time that I had to keep up the shots....that it was time to take more...but it is kicking this Flu bug in the BUTT !!!
(and FAST) 😄
I am pleasantly surprised, but really I should not be, since I am a BIG FAN of doing and keeping things as natural as possible.
I am just SUPER grateful that this worked well, (didn't taste bad) and that I was able to catch it fast !
This awesome recipe fights a very NASTY bug that has the potential to kill. 😱
I don't know why I caught a cold, (or is it the Flu?) other than LOTS of people I know are sick this week, so a bug is going around, for sure.
Maybe I am just cleansing? (wishful thinking?) It wouldn't be from all the junk and Christmas goodies I am eating lately? (HA)
(OK people, STOP giving me Christmas brownies, pies, caramel popcorn, chocolates, cheesecakes, cookies, cakes etc.
Sugar is my weakness ...Uuuugggg!)
Anyway, here are some of my favorite tips to help me, and you, get better fast once you have a cold or flu coming on.
Once you realize you're doing a bit of sneezing that day and you feel a sore throat coming on...quickly take 1-2 (500mg) Vitamin C and maybe some garlic capsules (if you have them) right away!!
You can continue to take Vitamin C often throughout the day and days following. This REALLY helps knock it out quick. (I didn't do it quick enough this time...but I started immediately when I remembered)
Then, if you feel any congestion in your head or nose, it is important to flush this out. When I was first married, my husband Bernd knew how to blow his nose REALLY well in the shower...I could NEVER do it.
Then my husband Rudy is REALLY good at washing out his sinuses right at the sink and does it almost daily. I've always been envious of how well he does it and what a wonderful habit to have.
I couldn't do it.
So recently, one day before I realized I was coming down with a cold, my father, (parents are so wonderful) was showing me a 'Neti Pot' he had at his home. I didn't know why he was showing me this. I told him that I had one too at my home, that I had found at the Dollar Tree for one dollar but that I had never used it before. I think it kinda intimidated me.
Then, low and behold, the next day I was feeling miserable and had a very stuffed nose and sinuses. I remembered the Neti Pot my dad talked to me about and the one I had in my bathroom and decided to give it a try. It is best used with clean filtered warm water with Saline solution, or salts, in the water.
My dad gave me a few packages of Saline and I used it in MY Neti pot. In the shower, it cleaned out my sinuses so easily that I was amazed that I had NOT tried this home remedy thus far!
Anyway, over the past few days I have been using it first thing in the morning and it has been a life saver!!
I am still taking my Vitamin C and this is making me feel better FAST.
- Take hot showers to ease congestion.
- Have plenty of SOFT Tissues around the house. For blowing your nose often.
- Use triple antibiotic cream or chap-stick around or under your red, sore nose, to help dry chapping from happening there.
- I love having a Eucalyptus humidifier running in the house around this time. Just clean water with a few drops of natural Eucalyptus essential oil drops in the water.
- Use Tylenol for aches and pains and to help you sleep better at night.
- Stay warm! (especially your chest and neck)
- Drink plenty of WATER!!! (no Orange Juice because of the LOADS of sugar it has in it.) Take vitamin c on its own.
- Having a little cough attack or bit of mucus in the back of your throat or esophagus? Try stirring a tablespoon of Lemon juice (always keep a bottle of it in your fridge for cooking and baking soda mixed antacid mixtures) with a tablespoon of Honey, (not the fake kind from KFC, but real honey) Mix and then take a spoonful to clear the cough. Boil a cup of water, then stir in 2 tbsp. of honey. Squeeze a small amount of lemon juice in the mixture to taste. If you don't have fresh lemon juice, use store-bought lemon juice. Drink the mixture as needed throughout the day to cut mucus and suppress the cough.
- I've heard that Pineapple juice is 500% better than cough medicines in relieving coughs. (haven't tried this one yet but would like to) Just always have a can of pineapple with juice (no sugar added) around the kitchen for such needs.

-I notice that when sick, it is hard to go #2 as often, when this is very necessary to move the toxins out quickly. I sometimes have to take a Cascara Sagrada or herbal laxative to get things moving. Otherwise I will feel sick longer than needed.
- NO Dairy, Sugar or Meat during the duration of your cold or flu, or at least until ALL congestion is OUT of the body!!
** A friend of mine told me of their special go to remedies, how they mix;
1 spoon of garlic
1 spoon of ginger
1 spoon of cayanne pepper
1 spoon of jalapeno
1 spoon of onion
and mix it with a few ounces of water or juice and take one Tablespoon of this whenever they feel something coming on.
They claim it has kept them from being sick for over 20 years!
I tried some of it today and it really is not that bad tasting.
Hope it works!
So that's it for now. I pray that none of you are sick ever, but if you are, please try some of these simple tips or healing tricks to fight it off and get well FAST!
Love, Dr. Mom (p.s. my Dr. just confirmed today that it IS the Flu) 🤒😷🤧
Pretty exciting for Doctors!
They even have found the West Nile Virus as close as 1 1/2 hours from where I live here in Utah....Yikes!
Yes, for the first time in years....I have been well loved by them these past few weeks. Ouchy.
However, I have discovered a nice homemade recipe that works well in repelling them. (BYE BYE nightmare)
3/4c Baby Oil
1/4 Witch Hazel
2TB Vanilla Extract
10 drops Lavender Oil
Mix in spray bottle and shake before use.
Repels Mosquitoes and Ticks!
Easy to make!
Shake it well and put all over your body, and VOILA, no more bites.
Also, the fun little bug zapper light-bulb from Home Depot/Walmart works rather well for killing them BEFORE they eat you, even in your home!
Remember, I've heard it said that large doses of Vitamin C can wipe out viruses?
Click on -Vitamin C
It is super 'easy', 'healthy', and really works! (better than clinical strength, I might add)
Here is a fun video of a girl explaining how she makes some of it herself, with a similar recipe to mine. * Watch below...
1 part coconut oil
1 part baking soda
1 part cornstarch
5-10 drops of yummy smelling essential oils....your choice.
(to date I've tried each of these; rose oil, cedar oil, grapefruit oil, jasmine oil, lemongrass oils etc. etc. ....I even made 'watermelon' scented deodorant! All of which have been great smelling)
Mix all together and cool...adding more cornstarch if needing to thicken it a bit....and Voila !
~Super, fantastic, great working Deodorant !!
(I don't think I will ever use store bought again.)
....for a great body lotion....try this one- whipped body butter
