First Aid

 

First aid doesn't have to be complicated. That said, there are many alternative treatments for the same problem. Don't hesitate to do the research to learn a variety of treatments.

 

Burns- Immediately cool the area by running it under cold water. Follow with ice. Cover with aloe vera,bandage if desired.

 

Scrapes - Wash the area with organic soap, rinse and pat dry. If you feel the need to further cleanse the area, pour on a little hydrogen peroxide. Pat dry. You can use raw honey for a dressing or 1teaspoon coconut oil with 4-8 drops of essential oil (tee tree oil,cinnamon, etc.) or cover with argan oil.

 

Eyes - If you get something in your eye, an eyewash can be very helpful. Make a saline solution with pure water (distilled is best) and salt. Boil the water, even if it is distilled. Add 1 teaspoon of salt to 1 cup of boiling water. Allow the water to cool to lukewarm before using. (Very important! Do not use hot or cold water in your eye!)

 

Use a sterilized eyecup or dropper. If you keep extra solution, sterilize the jar or bottle.

 

If you accidently splash a chemical in your eye, don't wait;flush with tap water immediately - for 20 minutes.

 

Bug bites - Use apple cider vinegar, cinnamon oil, aloe vera, tea tree oil and others. Remember to use a carrier oil with essential oils. (Mix 4-8 drops of essential oil with one teaspoon of coconut or other oil.

 

Infections

 

There are four types of infection: bacterial, viral, fungal, and parasitical.

 

Viral Infection - At the first sign of a viral infection, gargle with pure apple cider vinegar. The more you gargle, the better. This lessens the viral load, killing off those nasty bugs so your immune system doesn't have to battle so many. Gargle enough (every hour!) and you will definitely experience a milder illness or you may just nip it in the bud. Total Tonic (recipe) can also be a great help too.

 

Bacterial Infection - Gargle with apple cider vinegar for a sore throat, too. Yes, it burns like crazy, but afterwards, the pain is usually gone. Spanish black radish is remarkable for bacterial infections of all kinds - bronchitis, pneumonia, strep throat, tooth infection, etc. Garlic is also a time-honored cure.

 

Fungus (Athlete's Foot or other skin infections) - First try straight apple cider vinegar. Just pour it on or use a cotton ball to squeeze it on the effected area. Tea tree oil (4-8 drops with 1 teaspoon of coconut oil) can be applied to skin or fingernails and toenails.

 

When you have a fungal infection, you can bet you have an overgrowth of fungus in your gut. Check out How to Kill Candida and Balance Your Inner Ecosystem.

 

Parasites - No parasites are not limited to third world countries. A truly healthy diet with plenty of raw food (80% at least!) helps the body rid itself of parasites.

 

As you learn more about natural remedies, it might help to keep a notebook. There is much to learn and many homemade recipes you will want to remember. As you do, your natural medicine chest will grow.
