Stomach Virus

by Dasha N.

January 2006

I have almost all the books you offer and they have helped so much! I am excited to get Herbal Antibiotics. Thanks so much for this website! Now I wanted to share a remedy that I recently learned about.

For a stomach virus that causes vomiting, a cup of Ginger tea will stop it in its tracks. We had to use it recently and I gave it to my whole family. With the little ones (3 and 5), I gave it to them warm in a medicine dropper.

I want to thank you for such an easy and informative site! I've recommended it to friends who are new to herbs as a great place to get your feet wet, as well as to people who've been using herbs for years.

I've suffered from chronic allergies my entire life. I consistently remember being allergic to the months of September, February and April/May. This year, instead of the nasal sprays, allergy shots, and OTC anti-histamines, I've used herbs to support my system. I've researched through the How to Herb Book and Practical Herbalism about allergies and have made my own capsules and natural anti-histamine tea. This is the best I've felt in years!

Thanks again, another happy customer


Did You Know?

Daily sprinkling a little Cayenne powder on the toothpaste on your toothbrush can work miracles in fighting and preventing gum disease. That's right! It will also help deal with other oral ailments that plague many folks these days. After reading about this, we just had to try it. There is a warm sensation in your mouth as you brush your teeth, but it soon disappears after rinsing. As always, whenever using Cayenne powder, you should start with very small amounts to allow the body some time to build up a tolerance. The first few times we used it, we sprinkled so little of the powder on the toothpaste that we didn't feel anything. As the days progressed, we increased the amounts slightly until we felt it was warm enough. After using it for a little while, the nice feeling in your mouth is very satisfying. Be warned, however, that you do not want to overdo this one, so start small.
