    Re: Alternative Medicine

    I keep seeing that commercial for the stuff that detoxes your body by applying patches to your feet and the patches then are BLACK when you peel them off. I am strangely fascinated by this product, but also highly skeptical.

    I think I would LIKE to believe there was a miracle wand or cure or water or whatever, but then again we've also discovered that the herbal cures our ancestors used BEFORE prescription meds actually do work some of the time, so who the heck knows.

    Anyway, Miss Kitty, I too know how you feel. I've had health problems for so long and when you feel SO bad you would like ANYTHING to make it all go away and make you feel better. AT least that's how I feel anyway.

    MRD for your FM, mr buglover says to buy calendula flowers and put them in a hot bathtub with chamomile and sit in the bathtub for a bit. He says that will relax your muscles to the point your FM feel a bit better.
    Yup, with donuts!!

    MRD, my daughter told me she wanted to try them but I told her that I had heard they were a scam. (This was after showing her *MY* Ped-egg!)

    Last week on 20/20 they did a segment on them and it turned out that just applying WATER to the patch will make them turn all black like that.

    So, yeah, they do nothing other than take money out of your pockets!

    Avoid them!

    The only thing going on my feet is my ped egg! No gunky patches to detox me. They do look gross though when they peel them off in the commercial.

    I've had worse than usual allergy symptoms this spring. One of my friends told me that if I give up dairy for a while before spring and during spring it will greatly reduce my symptoms. Has anyone else heard of this? I would hate to give up cheese and get no benefit!

    Take a tablespoon of local raw honey everyday and next spring it will greatly reduce your allergy symptoms.
    It has to be honey gathered within 40 miles of where you live to be effective.

    giving up dairy just reduces mucus. Well, milk and yogurt and ice cream do, cheese doesn't.
    I know with my daughter's wicked sinus problems, they've always told us that reducing dairy when she is congested helps reduce the congestion.

    But try the local honey, I've heard tons of people reccomend this and it has worked well for my daughter.

    Thanks for the tip, mrd. That sounds much easier than giving up cheese for months at a time!

    I've been taking the now over the counter Mucinex, and in conjunction with my Neti Pot, am having very, very little trouble now, where 2 weeks ago I was at the ENT specialist wondering if there wasn't something really wrong.
    I have found the Truth and it doesn't make sense.

    How is it that this thread has been hiding from me for so long? I am an alternative medicine junkie, but I like to think that I am nobody's patsy! You Guys Have Been Holding Out On Me!!!

    Re: Alternative Medicine

    Does anyone know of a way to keep a cough away at night? I've been fighting this cold/flu for 3 weeks now and have my voice back, etc. but the coughing is out of hand! I can get to sleep if I'm laying on two pillows propping myself up but wake up several times a night coughing to the point of throwing up. I've done honey, Nyquil, etc and still have only managed 4 hours of broken sleep each night and it's really kicking my butt now! The doctor gave me some bronchial dilator pills which work wonders during the day but keep my amped up so I can't take them at night.
    Yup, with donuts!!
