Rosemary Tincture

May 16th, 2006

This tincture is good to take internally to prevent Colds or to fight infections.

Because of the antibiotic nature of this tincture, it is also good to use to clean cuts and scrapes. It removes bacteria and prevents infections.

Add 4 ounces of Rosemary needles to 1 pint of vodka and allow to sit for 2 weeks.

Strain and use a half a dropperful every 2 hours for a couple of days. Then cut back to 2 times daily for about 2 weeks to treat infections and Colds.

The Garlic Recipe

May 15th, 2006

This recipe, if taken 2 times per day, it will eventually kill all parasites in the body. It will kill bacteria and Viruses too. It makes one feel very good, and clear minded.

You juice approximately 2 fresh Garlic Cloves with a vegetable, like Carrot, cucumber, or tomato.

If you don’t have a juicer, you can grate the Garlic very small with a metal grater, then add yogurt and oat flakes to help hide the burning sensation.

Try 2 Garlic Cloves to one cup of vegetable juice. It depends on your weight and size as to how much “heat” you can take from the juiced Garlic. Some Garlic Cloves are small so use more. You want your nose to run and your head and chest to feel very warm!!!! This “hot” effect is very important. 2 times per day.

You will have severe diarrhea one time within 24 hours. Be near a toilet. You can start on the weekend for this reason. You will see worms (maybe you’ll see flukes too) come out of you after a day on this Recipe. Not all will die at once. They can take a long time to kill.

If you are ill with a Flu virus, take the Recipe every hour if you want to so you feel better. Then go back to 2 times per day. Afternoon and before bedtime are good times. You can take it to work with you.

You will smell like fresh Garlic for a little while, but then it goes away. Eat a mint. I would not want the odor to stop anyone. The benefits of the Garlic in this 2x a day high dose are amazing.

The Garlic Recipe is inexpensive and easy. Garlic tablets or capsules won’t have the same effect.

Onions For Earaches

May 13th, 2006

This one’s a bit strange, but works very well.

Make an onion poultice and apply externally over the infected ear. Cut an onion up, stick it in a hot oven until it starts to turn brown (make sure you set it in a glass pan to catch any juices, remove from oven, wrap in a piece of cotton or muslin, and apply.

You can also use the juice from the onion in your ear in the same way that you would Garlic oil. Works like a charm! The heat feels really good, too.
