"Home Remedies from a Country Doctor". This has over 200 solutions for those common illnesses. We all know that they are putting capsaican into creams to help with aches and pains. Well that came from a lil known remedy of putting hot pepper into a homemade cream. And Dear Hubby has been belching so much we are thinking he has been eating zombies for lunch. But now I am putting a bit of candied ginger in his lunch box. He is chewing it and not only has sweeter breath but no bad gas either. Even my friends mom told us to cure pain from arthritis by eating 9 gin soaked golden raisins a day. She swore it helped her and I know she could really get moving around the house. So I don't see why I should not also take some tips from the ladies and gents before me. There is a reason those at home remedies are passed around...they work!
"The Secrets of People who Never Get Sick" and I have found that there is a large majority of things that I do like these 25 people tell of their lifestyles. Of course there is more I can do. Mostly I want to figure out how to help my family change their ways and become healthier. You know that old adage of you can lead a horse to water but you can't make him drink.
Master Your Sleep. There are some of the things I can do easily like no exercise 2 hours before bed and to wind down and read before bedtime. That is the easy part. But no caffeine 6 hours before bed is really hard for me. Since I lay down around 9 pm most evenings that means I have to stop coffee or cokes by 3 pm. GOSH! I know that water, milk and juice are great for me but I will say I do love my caffeine. If I prepare for bed at 9 pm and lay down by 9:30 then sleep normally hits at 10 p.m. So if I wake at 6 a.m. (which is a great time for me) then I will have 8 hours of sleep. Perfect. But I need to also learn how to rest when I sleep. The tossing and turning and bad dreams and such really does beat up a body. I do use medications some times. But I want to learn how to rest on my own if possible. So I now am looking at what my bedtime practices are. Am I helping to tell my body it is time to rest and relax, not to just crash. Tracey Marks has many tried and true ways to help you find the rest cycle you need. Just stop in and read her book to find out.
