Where can I purchase Fennel?

Question:

I have heard people say that fennel is a home remedy for gas but where do you purchase it from? Would it be in a store like Walmart or a grocery store?

Answer:

It really depends on the type of fennel you want. But, if you’re looking for fennel herb to make tea with - it’s best to get fresh-dried organic - and that’s only going to be available at a specialty natural foods store or online.

For online….

For fennel tea - the spice fennel will work but there’s also ready-made fennel tea bags (which are very good and easy to use)

Teas: http://www.restoringhealth.org.com/remed… - do a search for “happy tummy tea” on that site (You can also get the bulk herb and fennel oil at this site - all organic)

or

Ready-made fennel tea bags: http://www.natural-herbs-remedies.com/he…

My favorite brand of pre-packaged herbal teas is Traditional Medicinals. They are solid herbal formulations and won’t break the bank. You can find them at the last url I gave you - just choose Traditional Medicinals from the brand drop-down box.

I hope this helps!

My son having watery bowels,vomiting for almost 2 weeks

Question:

He has appetite to eat but rather skeptic for he might get stomach pains and throw up again. His doctor said no medicine is required but watch the food intake. So, no dairies etc.. he’s 9 y.o.

You just know when he’s in pain, he cries. He runs to the toilet when he feels he’s about to throw up. Does anybody know how to treat this with home remedy, first aid, mother instinct kind of thing? Meaning the natural way or what not to eat or what to eat or …is yogurt good??? I don’t know…. need help and anwers please….

Answer:

Well, I do believe that you should take him to another doctor - 2 weeks is too long for a child to be losing that much fluid and nutrients via vomiting and diarrhea.

However, if it is some sort of food poisoning and even some viral infections, activated charcoal could be the answer.

Activated charcoal is what emergency rooms use for many poisonings and overdoses. It absorbs many times it’s weight and is simply amazing for food poisoning, many viral infections, nausea and diarrhea. You can get it a your local health food store - and get the powdered form, not the capsules.

I was very constipated, laxative didn’t work so I tried salt water….?

Question:

I drank 16 ounces with 2 tsp of kosher salt. I’ve been having extremely watery diarrhea for the past few hours. When can I expect this to stop?!

Answer:

What you did is basically a salt water flush - which is an oral enema - for lack of a better description. And, as just a point of advice, even though detoxing and cleanses can be very beneficial, it would be prudent to do them under the care of a natural health professional - they can carry risks. It’s a common misconception that just because something is ‘natural’ that it is safe.

Anyway, within 24 hours you SHOULD be over the effects, although you could still experience some nausea, so be careful what you eat - eat light - fruit juices and water are very good during flushes - especially water with a bit of lemon.

In the future, have some aloe capsules on hand. They are a much safer way to deal with constipation - and much much more gentle. Natural Moves is also a very good remedy for constipation.

Hope this helps :)

Here’s a large collection of aromatherapy reference articles:

What’s This With Sea Salt for Making Hair Wavy?

Dear Dr. Dee,

I saw something on TV tonite about giving hair that natural wave with a sea salt mist? do you know whats in it?

Liz

Hi Liz,

Here’s what I’ve found on getting waves in your hair with sea salt:

Long, sexy waves. Perms are out, but the secret fashion trend in the hottest salons is salt spraying. Get the hair damp and use salt water in a spray to bring out the wavy curls. According to the salons, everyone’s hair has some natural waves and patterns and this will bring this out and magnify it. So skip the perm and first try spritzing sea salt on damp hair, scrunching hair & letting air dry. Since most hair has some sort of natural wave, the sea salt will bring it out.

Try making a solution of 1 cup distilled water and 1/4 cup sea salt. Shake well, put in spray bottle, mist on damp hair, scrunch and let air dry.

Dr. Dee
