Bay Leaf Combats Thrush
When my son was 4 months old he developed thrush in his mouth. Breastfeeding became extremely painful with cracked, bleeding, and raw nipples. I gave him antibiotics and, of course, it came back within 2 weeks. The doctor wanted to put him on another round of antibiotics but by then I had done research and no longer trusted them.
I fixed a strong tea of about 10 Bay Leaves by putting them in a cup measure and covered them with boiling water. When it was cool I strained it and put the liquid in a small spray bottle. After and before every feeding I sprayed his mouth and my nipples and after every diaper change I sprayed his little bottom. They quickly started healing, NO more pain, and within a week all the spots were gone from his
I recommended this to a friend who has no use for herbs but she was desperate with a 1 year old who had a few cycles of antibiotics, and even antibiotic cream. The child had diarrhea and was having a terrible runny mess every half hour, his little bottom actually bled and he just screamed and screamed. She went out that night and bought Bay Leaves. A week later I talked to her and she told me that within hours of applying it after every diaper change his bottom was healing and he was no longer crying.

The daily consumption of Spirulina can improve and restore your energy levels like few other food sources can. This is partly due to its high content of riboflavin. Riboflavin helps release energy from carbohydrates, proteins and fats. So, the more riboflavin you consume, the more energy you'll get out of the foods you eat. Spirulina has more riboflavin than any other food source, making it perfect for those desiring an energy boost without any side effects.
