    Dad was a farmer with very little cash, but an inventive mind. Machinery would break down, and inevitably he always tried to fix it with duct tape and baling wire. It was his "fix-it-all" remedy. Mom used this philosophy in a different direction. Her do-it-all solution to meals was...
  2. Question and Answer
    Just wondering if anyone has any "tried and true" home remedies for sore throats. I've had a mild sore throat for the past 2 to 3 days off and on, and I'm getting really tired of it. The throat looks red and irritated, and I don't want it to work its way into strep or something. I've been...

    Every sping/summer I contract poison ivy, and I've become quite sensitive to it. I'm careful when I'm outdoors, and suspect that I must be picking it up from our cats/dog. Not petting them/kissing them is not an option! On Thursday I woke up with a patch of it on my chin (very unatrractive)...

    Our new puppy gets horribly carsick. Today, during a twenty minute ride to the Vet, he vomited and defecated. It was so bad in his crate we had to give him a bath immediately after getting home. He had a similar problem on the trip when we got him but that was an hour and a half. Does anyone...

    Ok, so apparently my feet don't know that I am lazy and far from an athlete! I am an anti shoe and sock person. I'd wear sandles year round if the weather permitted. So every year in late fall, early winter, I tend to get athlete's foot (or something similair) when I start wearing shoes and...

  7. Question and Answer
    Can anyone recommend a good home remedy book? I have stopped purchased books lately. I only purchase if it is one that I will read over and over (and sometimes I still purchase cheapos from yard sales). But I would like to get a good reference book about home remedies. I'd like for it to use...

    My kids have been sick with a cough that antibiotics just aren't taking away. And though I don't want to stop giving it to them, I would like to know if you guys know of any home remedies to treat this? I'm going to try some garlic oil on their feet today. I think they have bronchitis. Any and...

    I have puffy eyes in the morning and late at night, anyone have any suggestions for a natural remedy? I have heard of witch hazel, but it must be applied in its natural state, as a tea bag, not in bottled form. Cant find the tea bag form in our health food store, though. Any suggestions...

    I need a natural or homemade shampoo recipe or remedy for dandruff that is gentle enough for kids. Aimee and Damon fight with it all the time and we've used Vinegar on it - they have such thick hair that I think they can't get it clean enough or something. Bruce had some old Denorex which works...
