Waiting

, ,

As I sit in my car and wait for my husband to get off I begin to think about my life. I begin to think about all of the things that I haven’t done an all of the things that I still want to do. After all I am still young and in some ways I fear that I am still blind to all of the harsh cruelties of the world I don’t however see this as an entirely bad thing. I do however know that life is not fair I have seen my fair share of bad things happening to good people. I don’t want to look back on my life and have a whole mess of regrets that out shine my accomplishments so today I am turning over a new leaf I will live each day to the fullest no regrets!!!!!

I’m a VEGETARIAN!!!

          ImageImage

In my last post I had mentioned that I had changed well this is just one of the ways that I have. I made the decision to become a vegetarian for health reasons. I got online and did my research and discovered that animal protein really isn’t that great for you. Now I’m not saying that the vegetarian lifestyle is for everyone but for me it was the best option. I do recommend that everyone try it for a little while I do think you like it. If any of you do decide to try it please let me know how it goes for you, you can leave a comment or email me your story. thecrazythingsido@yahoo.com

Being Sick

I don’t know about you all but I hate being sick and unfortunately I’m always the first one to catch everything! The past couple of days I have been so congested that I could barely breath and I hate taking medicine for things like this so I set out to find the best home remedy to cure me. Well as I was looking I was surprised to find that there are home remedies for just about everything so I decided to share a few with you that I found interesting. I will include the websites where I found them so that you can look and see if there are any that I left out that suit you.

 

Allergies Treatment using Nutrients

Certain nutrients have been found beneficial in the prevention and treatment of allergies. Often the intake of vitamin B5 or pantothenic acid brings great relief to the sufferer. This vitamin may be taken in a dose of 100 mg daily for a month. In such cases, liberal amounts of pantothenic acid help even though the recovery takes several weeks. A dose of 400 mg of vitamin E taken daily for four to six weeks is also beneficial as this vitamin possesses effective anti-allergic properties.

 

Allergies Treatment using Lime

Lime is considered an effective remedy for any kind of allergy. Half a lime may be squeezed in a glass of lukewarm water and sweetened with a teaspoon of honey. It can be taken once daily first thing in the morning for several months. This remedy not only flushes the system of toxins but also acts as an antitoxic and antiallergic agent.

 

Allergies Treatment using Vegetable Juices

A quantity of 500 ml carrot juice or a combination of carrot juice with beet and cucumber juices, has been found beneficial in the treatment of allergies. 100 ml each of beet and cucumber juices should be mixed with 300 ml of carrot juice to prepare 500 ml or half a litre of mixed juice. This should be consumed at least once a day

Apple Cider Vinegar for athletes foot

Apple cider vinegar is one of the best athlete’s foot treatment home remedies. Dilute a cup of apple cider vinegar with an equal amount of water. Use this diluted solution to wash the affected skin. Apple cider vinegar is acidic in nature and can easily help kill off the fungal strains that cause the infection.

Cough treatment using Grapes

Grapes are one of the most effective home remedies for the treatment of a cough. Grapes tone up the lungs and act as an expectorant, relieving a simple cold and cough in a couple of days. A cup of grape juice mixed with a teaspoon of honey is advised for cough relief.

Cough treatment using Almonds

Almonds are useful for dry coughs. Seven kernels should be soaked in water overnight and the brown skin removed. They should then be ground well to form a fine paste. A quantity of twenty grams each of butter and sugar should then be added to the paste. This paste should be taken in the morning and evening.

 

Cough treatment using Raisins

A sauce prepared from raisins is also useful in a cough. This sauce is prepared by grinding 100 gm of raisins with water. About 100 gm of sugar should be mixed with it and the mixture heated. When the mixture acquires a sauce-like consistency, it should be preserved. Twenty grams should be taken at bedtime daily.

Dandruff Treatment using Lime

The use of a teaspoon of fresh lime juice for the last rinse, while washing the hair, is another useful remedy. This not only leaves the hair glowing but also removes stickiness and prevents dandruff. Lime juice or lemon juice is an excellent oily dandruff home remedy and can also be used to prevent this scalp condition. You can also apply a paste made out of lemon juice and fuller’s earth to your scalp once a week. This pack is one of the best dandruff home remedies as it is an effective method of deep cleansing your scalp. The lemon juice in this paste will help to break down the excessive sebum that has collected on your scalp while the Fuller’s earth will help to cleanse your scalp of the excess dead skin cells.

Gluten Free

,

I got told at the doctor yesterday that I have to start a gluten-free diet and so I was like “how in the heck does that work” I had no idea what she was talking about. So I came home and did a little research and found out that gluten is a protein that is found in most grains. So I was thinking to myself what in the world am I allowed to eat? Then I read farther into the blog that I had found ( there will be a link to the blog at the end of this post so you can go and read it if you want) that there is going to be a lot more to this than I thought. So for the next few months my readers are going to get to take this journey with me as I settle into what life is going to be like Gluten-Free!!!!! Please leave feedback I love hearing from you all!!
