Swish Away Your Canker Sores?

Here’s a recipe for a mouth wash that is pretty much guaranteed to take your canker sores away. You will have to go to a health food store to buy them:

  • 2 tsp Chinese Red Sage (Salvia officinalis var. rubia; leaves are preferred, but the root will also work (found at most Chinese herb stores); any of the other Salvia’s will also work
  • 2 tsp German Chamomile (Matricaria recutita)

Add the herbs to a mug of hot water and let cool until comfortably warm. Then strain out the herbs (best to use a large tea ball), swish, rinse, and spit out. Repeat daily until you have a happy mouth. The two herbs carry out effective actions that kill bugs, lubricate, calm, and tighten the tissue, reduce inflammation, and speed up healing. It tastes terrible, and it works.

Enjoi!

OMG, Cabbage! Quit Blowing My Mind With VeggieTales!!!

Cabbage is great for reducing swelling around areas of:

  • Bursitis
  • Cysts
  • Superficial ulcerations
  • Mastitis

Simply slice off the spine, and remove some leaves. Steam until soft and once cool, gently squish (a rolling pin works well) to break out the juices. Since the leaves naturally fit around the body they can be apply directly to the affected area, and then secured in place by tying a towel. Keep on for at least 20 minutes; more repeats = more benefits.

Warning: I thought it would be cool to make my girlfriend a cabbage bra. She didn’t have mastitis, but dropped a cup size. Now she won’t speak to me.
