Medicine Chest In A Bottle

Tea tree oil is steam distilled from the leaves of Melaleuca alternifolia. This indigenous tree is found only in tropical northeastern New South Wales Australia. The name tea tree was given by Captain Cook during his exploration of Australia during the 1700’s. After running out of tea on his voyage, he found a fragrant plant and brewed the leaves into a spicy beverage and named these plants, tea trees.

Tea tree oil is both powerful and safe. It is known for its antibacterial, antiviral, and antifungal properties. The Aboriginal people of New South Wales have used the tea tree plant medicinally for thousands of years. In the early 1900’s, tea tree oil was readily used by dentist and surgeons as a disinfectant and for incisions. Dentist also used tea tree oil for gingivitis, bleeding gums and infection. During World War II, tea tree oil was included in the first aid kits of medics. It was poured on wounds to prevent infection. It was also used very successfully to heal wounds that were already infected. They were amazed to find that this powerful germicide dissolved pus without damaging the surrounding tissue.

The beauty of tea tree oil is that it penetrates deep into the skin tissues. Acne and nail fungus are popular conditions many use tea tree oil for. It is effective and gentle on the skin. There are numerous other conditions that tea tree oil is effective on such as, arthritis, athletes foot, bites and stings, candida albicans, cold sores, dandruff, eczema, head lice, hemorrhoids, muscle aches, psoriasis, rashes, sinus congestion, warts, wounds and more. Don’t forget about your pets. It’s great for removing fleas, ticks, lice and as an antiseptic.

Tea tree oil should only be used externally, unless otherwise directed by your doctor. Make sure to choose high quality tea tree oil that is 100% pure. Tea tree oil can be found in body lotions, foot creams, deodorants, dandruff shampoos, toothpaste, mouthwash, soaps, healing saves and even dental floss.

Many of the articles I have on my site pertain to natural remedies that I use personally . One of the articles is about Emer’gen-C. I don’t think a day goes by that I don’t use this product at least once.

Emer’gen-C is by far the best I have ever found in replenishing electrolytes. It is nutrient rich with 1000 mg’s of Vitamin C, vitamin B1, B2, B3, B6, folic acid, B12, potassium, magnesium, calcium, manganese, chromium and a touch of sodium. The vitamin C is buffered with the minerals so it prevents stomach distress. To read more of this article please visit my site.

Alternative Medicine For ADHD – Is Your Medicine Chest Locked?

Parents were shocked by a recent report which stated that a majority of teenagers engaged in dealing in ADHD drugs (such as Ritalin and Strattera and Vyvense) had gotten their supplies from the family medicine chests ! Parents are now becoming much more aware of alternative medicines for ADHD and know that there are alternatives out there which will not turn their children into drug users and ruin their childhood and adolescence.

Teacher Knows Best?
Many thousands of ADHD children are treated with powerful psychostimulant drugs. I read a recent blog post about a thirteen year old boy whose teacher insisted that he should be put on Ritalin. The parents’ doctor agreed to give him Ritalin but after some time noticed some strange side effects :- he was moody, ate paper and pencils and was generally displaying ‘psychotic episodes’. After a succession of ADHD drugs (including Paxil which has NOT been approved by the FDA for children under 18!), the parents decided to take him off all drugs. The school expelled him as they insisted that he should be on Ritalin. The good news is that the boy is now homeschooled, is off all ADHD drugs and is doing much better.

Behaviour Therapy
Behaviour therapy is sometimes considered for ADHD children. This functions by setting up a rewards/cancelling privileges for good and bad behaviour. Some of these procedures can range from simple checking off lists to software programs which records scores and everything else!

TV Parenting?
Active parenting is another way to approach ADHD. This can range from clear scheduling, setting of chores, listening skills and a whole range of techniques which ensures that the child’s behaviour is monitored and s/he is surrounded by love and attention and is not left alone with a TV or PC.

Cognitive Therapy
Some parents also consider cognitive therapy which is basically ‘how you think is how you feel’. Let me give you an example. If the child is encouraged, he will build his self esteem, improve his self confidence which in turn will lead to optimism. The child’s positive thought patterns are influencing his behaviour which will invariably improve.

How to Create a Personal Literary Medicine Chest for Life’s Ills

The straw that breaks the camel’s back has found its way into your knapsack and now the load has become unbearable. You’ve entered a difficult and challenging period and seek relief of some kind to lessen the stress. There are excellent books, articles and seminars that discuss techniques on how to use past pleasant experiences to mitigate difficult periods of your life and overcome disappointments. But often during those stressful times the mind is so jumbled, confused and fogged with tears it makes it difficult to find, let alone access this psychological medicine chest to get the help you need. It’s easier simply to reach for a bottle of alcohol or bottle of pills.

Here’s a simple way to access that door to psychological refuge. Establish and maintain a specific personal handwritten booklet filled with your signature experiences. Filling this reference booklet should be undertaken only when you feel good. It’s similar to how one should eat right, exercise and get rest so when you catch the inevitable cold, it’s not as severe, lasts a shorter time and you recover faster.

Don’t strive to write a Hemingway classic. There is no particular style. Compose it in a way in which you’ll understand what you mean when you read it later. More importantly make sure that the words powerfully evoke pleasant memories as it should. The memories themselves should be simple, capturing a particular moment with a positive feeling. For example describe how you felt when you saw someone’s slowing developing warm smile with scintillating eyes and a soft laugh in the soft light of dusk and why it was so compelling and special.

The reason why you write it out by hand is that your emotions flow more effectively from your spirit through your arms to the parchment. Because it’s your handwriting it’s uniquely personal and one of a kind. The words form visuals that impact the cerebral cortex immediately sending much needed relief to your psyche. And it’s parchment, not etched in stone, so it’s in a pliable form on which you can deepen those emotions with edits at any time.

A mere paragraph is required for each moment. These moments should be simple and universal wherever you experienced them. It could be at some boisterous party because you were having such a good time or that time you were sitting in an empty cafĂ© listening to the soft murmur of an empty big city purring during a summer holiday weekend, while sipping on your espresso and watching the world go by. Eventually you’ll develop a collection of glorious, diverse experiences which soon will become thicker than what you imagined.

The commonality of this collective is that it’s positive, unique and personal. The reason for the variety, just like a medicine cabinet, is that a particular class of moments will be just the right medicine at just the right time to assuage your anxiety. It’s a reminder that “this too shall pass” and good moments will return because you’ve experienced so many of them already.
