Mastitis

by Amanda W.

October 2006

I have had 3 cases of mastitis in the past and at the first sign that something wasn't right, I determined that I was not going to the doctor for antibiotics AGAIN! (I've probably had antibiotics 10 times.) So, here's what I did, and it worked!!!!

  • I took 1/2 teaspoon of the Immune Booster every hour for about 11 hours. The idea was to take it until I had no more symptoms.
  • I made some fresh garlic oil (3 cloves diced in 2 tablespoons of olive oil, let set, then strain) and massaged it into my breast.
  • Then, I got out a potato and slice it thin. Placed it in my bra at the spot... It's supposed to draw out the infection. Change the potato frequently.
  • Also, I took 2 cranberry capsules 3 times a day.

    And now I am better!! Hopefully I never have to use antibiotics again, just natural ones!

    From our Mailbox

    I purchased quite a few herbal books recommended by BHS before heading over here and many of them have been very helpful. Many of the Filipinos are fond of using herbs up here on the mountains and even grow some in their gardens. I lent a friend three herbal books- Practical Herbalism, Growing 101 Herbs That Heal and The How-To Herb Book. She was so happy to see pictures of the herbs she has in her own garden and that she can finally label each one and learn of its advantage and hopefully put it to proper use. Mountains of thanks to BHS! In Christ, Grace


    Did You Know?

    Cayenne powder has been used by researchers in Antarctica to help them bear the extremely cold temperatures. The cayenne powder is sprinkled into their boots before putting them on. As the powder slowly comes in contact with the skin through the socks, it will draw blood to the feet, thus bringing much needed warms to the extremities. The one draw back is the red powder stains light colored socks. From our readings, it seems the stained socks were a small price to pay for the great benefit of being able to feel your toes after a little while out in the blistering cold! After trying this on a number of occasions during the winter near Lake Superior, I'm also convinced the stained socks are worth it.
