What about INFECTIONS?

Tamiflu-Renal ImpairmentSo a lot has happened since my journey of healing has begun.  This year I had home birth with baby number 5, began small homesteading projects, and helped the kids begin a small family business, Watts Kids Market, selling mild beneficial goat milk soap and herbal salves that have helped me along this journey.

I had a few complications while pregnant, and postpartum and here is my summary for getting through my infections SAFELY EVEN WHILE PREGNANT…

I had kidney stones at 15 weeks pregnant, after picking apricots, pulling weeds, and transplanting strawberries in July.  And discovered what may have been the trigger, antibiotic use several years ago (see #8 in linked article).  IN MY CASE ANTIBIOTICS AND TAMIFLU.

20181127_152255

HISTORY
Trouble for kidneys seemed to have started after I had the Swine Flu in 2010, I went along with recommended TAMIFLU.  Known side effects being kidney disease…  LUCKY FOR ME…

Then in 2012 I came up with protein in my urine while pregnant and swollen kidneys, then I had unexplained hives just in the mornings during this pregnancy as well.

 

2018 5th PREGNANCY

Some of the testing late in pregnancy is GBS, Group B Strep.  I was advised that I would be given antibiotics during labor to prevent transferring this harmful bacteria to the baby.  Well neither option was okay for me so I began to search for more natural ways to cure it and then retest…  I stumbled upon wellnessmama.com and learned that it could be done by basic everyday foods and easy to do.  I quickly went to work and followed the things that I had on hand and a bit more.

GBS POSITIVE

HERE IS WHAT I DID FOR  GBS FOR 5 DAYS…

  • Eating probiotic foods such as Kefir, Sauerkraut and other fermented foods
  • Taking a probiotic supplement and using it vaginally
  • Consuming raw garlic, cloves SEVERAL TIMES daily.  AND healing honey
  • Consuming Coconut Oil for its naturally antiviral properties.
  • raw apple cider vinegar daily internally and a daily rinse douche.
  • Lemon water with GSE- Grapefruit Seed Extract (use with caution and ask your care provider if pregnant)
  • I bathed in borax and vinegar and essential oils

After 5 days, I went in for retesting and came back GBS negative.  I would still be pressured to use antibiotics during labor if I was transported to a hospital for delivery.   Thankfully, we still have a choice and can refuse any treatments without recourse in this beautiful State of Idaho, many thanks for those who diligently fight to remain FREE, HEALTH FREEDOM IDAHO.

 

I delivered in early January at home to a beautiful and healthy baby boy with no GBS…

 

THE FLU

2 days later, I was full on sick with the flu due to exposure at my daughters birthday party.  I kept my baby close and used my Healing Honey and recovered quickly without my son getting sick at all.  Dr Brus wasn’t surprised as Breastmilk is amazing…

  • I doubled up on my HEALING HONEY
  • I stayed in bed
  • I soaked in a detox bath when I could
  • I finally drank a cup of expressed breastmilk

BEATING TETANUS and INFECTION

In July, I went to milk our goat and had flip flops on.  I hadn’t planned to do any work out there so I thought I was ok to wear them.  Well this sheet of 4 x 8 siding was leaning on the side of the barn and it was in the way of clearing some manure that I was going to shovel up, so I attempted to move this sheet by myself using my foot as a leverage point.  I slid the sheet right over my foot and before I knew it, I had sent a large stick sliver, manure and all, into the side of my foot.  I finished working and hadn’t realized just how big this SLIVER really was.  I filtered the milk and then looked down to check out the damage, by this time i was having trouble walking and sat down to realize this SLIVER was large and 4 inches long.

20180824_150820

The stick went in diagonally from the side and all the way to my big toe.

Having had trouble with the ER, I considered pulling it out myself until I realized just how big it was and that it was woven between foot bones and cartilage and move my bones each time I stepped flat.

I gathered up my kids from the farm and into the van and we drove to the ER.

It only bled what you see in the picture and I waited 30 mins to head to the ER from time of injury, 30-45 minutes of waiting to be roomed at the ER, 20 or so minutes from then for the Dr to come in and look, 20 plus minutes for them to decide what to do next and x-ray (even though you cannot see wood in an x-ray) and then 10 plus minutes to gather needed, meds, tools and supplies to remove the PLANK…

Having understanding of the dangers of antibiotics and kidneystones (point #8 in article)…  I strongly refused antibiotics and the understanding of the ingredients and risk I strongly refused the tetanus shot against Dr recommendations.   I also read up how others have fought off tetanus naturally

So about 2 hrs of time for bacteria to set in well…

20180824_163943

The nice Dr. carefully removed the wood piece and was about to leave, when I asked to see what she had removed.  She showed me the SMALL piece in the photo below.  I had to tell her that I was sure there was more inside and that what she had pulled out was only 1/4 of what was still inside.  She wasn’t so sure, but after my convincing her there was more, she agreed to cut open the other end near the toe and explore some more.  She pulled another 3 inches out the other end and irrigated it and let it bleed a little.

 

A nurse then came in to clean and wrap it and proceeded to contaminate it and cover it tightly with wound dressing against the recommendations to avoid tetanus.

I raced out of there as fast as I could and went home to soak it in a hot detox bath.

Here is what I did..

Soaked my foot several times that day

Took natural infection fighting remedies below.

In a small foot tub I added

  • Hottest water I could get
  • 1/4 c borax
  • 1/4 c epsom salt
  • 1/4 c apple cider vinegar
  • Thyme and Cloves Essential oils

I applied to the foot but not over the wound

Remedies I took internally

  • several spoonfuls of Healing Honey as several times a day
  • GSE – Grapefruit Seed Extract
  • Sovereign Silver
  • Chewing and swallowing raw garlic
  • Lots of water
  • Probiotics
  • Olive Leaf Extract

 

I continued to soak and take internal remedies until signs were completely absent for a few days.  It was still very painful to walk and I may have something still festering out but have not had to return to have it removed.

Oh No, a Fever!

IMG_20160609_210837.jpgIt can be a freighting time when your child is sick.  It is important to know when it’s time to treat at home and what constitutes an emergency.  If action is taken early on many emergency action may be prevented. A quick reference guide to fever shows when to be alarmed.  Otherwise, many home remedies and herbs may be just what is needed to boost the little ones through the other side and speed up recovery.

Here are my favorite go to herbs for child cold, flu, fever and infection.  The idea is to be prepared rather than panicked at the time of need.  Do your research and have on hand many of these for such an occassion.  Infections are common and can be squashed before they take over and those pesky antibiotics are recommended.

Grapefruit seed extract is a safe and healthy alternative to oral or topical antibiotics.  Oregano and thyme oil can also prove effective topically. (A very strong oral antibiotic but just as deadly to your good bacteria that make up your immune system.  -use with caution under supervision of a naturalpath or specialist only)

Translate Symptoms into Healing-Step by Step of my journey- Updated 12/13/18

START YOUR OWN JOURNEY BY FINDING OUT WHAT YOUR BODY IS STRUGGLING IN… I HAVE NOW INCLUDED EASY TO FOLLOW LINKS FOR ALL THE PRODUCTS THAT I USED IN MY JOURNEY.

TAKE A FEW MINUTES TO FILL OUT MY HEALTH EVALUATION

Prevent and heal from disease by tackling what many believe to be the starting point in the body.  The BOWELS.  Its all in the gut.  If you have ever taken a round of antibiotics, been vaccinated, ate Genetically Modified Foods (GMO-corn, soy and more), ate wheat products (high rate of spray with glyphosate-Monsanto’s Roundup), walked barefoot, traveled into other countries, or drink Tap water then you may have trouble in your gut, a compromised immune system, or organs that are working hard to keep you going day to day.  You may feel tired, overwhelmed, overweight, sick often, or feel like you just cannot maintain your stamina.  You may not struggle all the time but seasonal allergies, food allergies, have pain or inflammation, or like me, dry, cracked and bleeding skin and eczema.

What is your symptoms?

I began my journey by eliminating the kidney triggers, since I had kidneys stones and do not ever wish to have them again, such as refined added sugars, reading The 30 Day Faith Detox, (a great start for those who would like a daily devotional, systematically detoxing one organ at a time along with meal planning and recipes) drinking a good greens product and drinking MORE and purified water and eating clean and avoiding environmental toxins and using toxic free hygiene products and household products

As part of the 30 day faith detox, I needed to begin in the gut.  I began to address my lower bowels and take some high quality enzymes and a good probiotic to replenish my gut flora.  My friend suggested bone broth so I made me a batch of this.  I was reminded of the amazing testimonials I had heard from customers while working for Dr Christopher’s Herb in college.  We sold a formula specific to cleaning the bowels and I definitely needed and extra boost and decided to use the ingredients in Dr Christopher’s Lower Bowel Formula. and put together my own tea with herbs I found locally from World Of Nutrition, Nampa’s bulk herb section for half the price.  If making your own formula isn’t for you, here is a great option as well for your colon health.  The Supplement Facts are listed below.  Dr Mario Brus in Nampa Idaho suggests a product called RESTORE PROFESSIONAL, Restore-the gut tight junction closer and S. Boulardii by Jarrow to supplement nutrients needed and improve the gut health as well as doing a bone broth.  Some start gently with chicken broth to begin to heal the gut and restore the microbiome.  There is also a product Biomedic, get $50 off with coupon code BETRUE, that helps block the glyphosate (Roundup sprayed on almost ALL NON ORGANIC wheat and other produce before harvesting) and restore the gut biome.  Please contact me for more info on these as I do not yet have the info.

I made a lot of my own remedies based on these ingredients, I also made bone broth and ate a high fat, veggie and juice diet for the beginning phase of my journey.

I always use caution and research the ingredients for myself, I started on a low dose and ultimately decided what to use and how much by the way I felt inspired to do.

I had to start to interpret my symptoms and translate them into simple ways to start towards my journey to health.  Along the way, I would run into something that would trigger a reaction, some would call allergy, but I began to recognize some of these reactions as part of the HEALING PROCESS as skin is a detox organ and my body was trying to eliminate SOMETHING…  (I would encourage you to look deeper at these reactions, as they may hold a key to eliminating a deeper issue, as we are so keen to avoid THESE ALLERGENS, when in fact, they may be an answer to our problems)

About this same time I was given an answer from God.

I found that the best way to see results is to document symptoms and what steps I took.  You may want to start a journal to take clear notes to know what works for you.  Remember that we are all uniquely created by God and we all have been exposed to different environmental factors as well as unique diets and lifestyles that brought us to TODAY..

Take a few minutes to see what your body needs by answering some basic questions and take control of your health.

My own homemade remedies were basic and modeled by the ingredients of Dr Christopher’s Original Formulas and others listed here.

 

End Each Night With a Detox Bath

Our skin is the largest detox organ of our body.  Once I accepted this, I started taking detox baths every night until my skin cleared up nicely.  I simply used a recommended bath I had heard about online and added some essential oils for fragrance.

My mom has used oils for years for massage therapy, but I had just thought they were used for their scent alone.  I just hadn’t grasped the healing properties they hold until this year.

I was healing from ECZEMA and I found heat helped soothe the itch.  The HOTTER THE WATER, THE BETTER.  I even turned up the temperature on my water heater.  PLEASE USE CAUTION AND DO NOT BURN YOURSELF OR YOUR KIDS!!!

Here’s my nightly detox bath soak

Variation of detox bath soak

During the coarse of my healing, I would soak as much as possible.  Almost nightly, and more frequently when my eczema was flaring.  I would only use a mild soap such as goat milk soap

I followed my bath by drying completely and rubbing a mix of 1/4 cup vodka, 5 drops of thyme and 5 drops of cloves essential oils on any eczema until the itch has settled, along with any dry spots, zits, moles, and skin tags and allowing to air dry then applying a pine salve I had made onto my eczema.  I had tried it before from my mom and loved it so much that I made my own.  My homemade salve was still no match to the real time tested formula, so I ordered my own.

These are some suggestions on detoxing essential oils

More suggestions for detox baths

  • 1/4 cup epsom salt
  • 5-10 drops of essential oils (add to a soap first to disperse)

Other people use different combinations of detox baths

  • Apple cider vinegar
  • 20 Mule Team Borax
  • Epsom salt
  • Baking Soda
  • Sea salt
  • Turpentine (pure natural) Pine Spirits
  • Vodka
  • Added 5-10 drops of essential oils (add to a soap first to disperse)

God showed up in Thyme

During my journey for health I had asked my husband, who is a lead technician for a 24 hour restoration company that deals with mold, to bring me home something that I could use for the surface mold in my basement shower.  He had always bragged about the amazing, safe and natural products he used for work and I had to test it myself.

It took him a few months to finally bring me home the CHEMICAL.  I was so excited to read the ingredients.  Thymol (a component of thyme oil) and lemon.  I had to laugh.  Here, this powerful non toxic product was used by the professionals to treat child care centers, hospitals and molds and fungus.  It is a virucidal, bactericidal, fungicidal, tuberculocidal and even kills HIV on precleaned surfaces.  It is safe to use on food surfaces and no hazard or FDA approval on the bottle.  I used it for the mold and got some on my hands, on my eczema and it tingled and burned like mad.  A bad thing right?

I was wrong.  My eczema turned a page and began to clear up.  I was so excited. Natural, safe and effective at treating my eczema and mold.  I discovered a wonder product by accident.  Actually, God gave me this amazing dicovery because He loves us all and I had been asking for answers and healing.  I was desperate and open to whatever He would show me.

BUT WAIT… If this product “kills” eczema, than there must be a cure for it completely.  After all, this product KILLS HIV and 99.99% of germs

Must be pretty powerful stuff.  Right?  Please dilute your Thyme oil.  Only a little is needed.  After all 0.23 % of this gallon bottle was thymol.  The rest was water and scent…

I use Young Living essential oils to clean my house and bath in as well as for healing.

You can use any oils, herbs, or whatever you would like.  Just be cautious of your source.
