Goldsenseal/ehinacea tea bags steeped as if making tea, but make it strong. Using warm tea bags lightly moistened with tea, lay the bags directly over the eyelids; let stay in place until they get cold/cool. I did this every hour for approximately five or six times. My daughter's pink eye was gone by the next morning.

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.
