While in the shower, soap up your body with your favorite soap and before rinsing off use yellow cornmeal as a scrub on your skin ( do not apply cornmeal with a towel/flanel, apply with moistened hands) and when it is rinsed your sking will feel great.

More Arthritis help :

I have found that avoiding red meat, oranges and lemons make a world of difference, and when adding grapefruit to your diet, it will help even more!

To Reduce Fever : Cut a medium sized grapefruit in half and place in a saucepan. Cover with water and bring to a simmer. Simmer for 15-20 minutes, and allow to cool to room temperature. Wring out the grapefruit half into the water, and discard rind. You may add 1 tsp Feverfew herb, or 1tsp Echinacea herb to the water while cooling, to make an infusion. Strain before drinking. The tea will be bitter, so add a little honey to sweeten. Grapefruit rind is a natural source of Quinine. Quinine is used to treat the fevers of Malaria and other infections. Use fresh grated grapefruit rind with plasters and poultices to aid in healing of wounds and rashes also.

One of my clients called about an Eczema problem...she can't believe how fast it is going away, after 15 years of suffering with it. I treated her for candida (yeast) infection. The infection comes from inside the body and is in her bloodstream. I am treating that with anti-yeast herbs and a diet that will acidify the Ph in her gut.

Her saliva and urine were in the acid range when checked with Ph paper, so she had been told she was too acid. Quite the contrary...bad yeast grows best in an alkaline Ph, as do parasites. When she followed my instruction to check the Ph of her feces, thereby the gut, it went into the dark blue! (Alkaline).

I want to tell you that it is important to drink cabbage juice...about 1 ounce per day, mixed with other green juices, if preferred. Also, Magnesium Sulfate (Epsom Salts) is one of the best external treatments I have ever seen for healing eczema and psoriasis (Yeast). You can dissolve about 3 handsfull of Epsom Salts into a bathtub of warm water and soak for 20-30 minutes in it once a day...use the time to relax and meditate, perhaps light a candle and put soft music on. This will also help to grow out healthy nails and will eliminate another side-effect of yeast; thick callouses on the feet!

  1. Burns:

  2.  Beat an egg white and add a teaspoon of olive oil. Apply to burned area until dry and re-apply a few times. It works wonders, takes the burn away and leaves no mark of it.
