If you’re fine as long as your head is still, and when you move it slowly, but everything spins when you move it rapidly, there is simple technique that can solve the problem. It’s called the Epley Maneuver.
Vinegar Tea, Avoid Dairy, Wheat
A chronic cough comes from post nasal drip, a result of thickened mucous that doesn’t flow along the membranes like it’s supposed to when it’s more viscous. The quick fix is vinegar tea. A small amount in a glass of hot water (with honey for sweetener) thins the mucous pretty quickly.
Blisters on your Feet
Thin linen socks can solve the problem.
Jammed Finger/Sprained Toe
The simple solution is to wrap it to an adjoining digit.
Bright Lights Hurt Your Eyes at Night
It turns out that is the blue spectrum of light that hurts. It’s more of a problem these days, because there are more cars, and the newer ones tend to be equipped with super bright lights that include a lot of blue. The simple fix is yellow sunglasses. They filter out the blue, so the lights aren’t as painful.
Take a hot bath, or put a heating pad where your lower back hurts. Take a muscle relaxant like Tylenol during the day, or Tylenol PM at night, to help you sleep.
Muscle Cramps after Exercise
Muscle cramps after exercise generally point to a magnesium deficiency. People like me who drink a lot of coffee and acidic beverages generally have that problem, as well as a need for more calcium, as both are taken from the bones to neutralize acids. The solution: A Cal-Mag-Zinc supplement.
Poison Ivy / Poison Oak / Poison Sumac– TecNu
I used to go the doctor when I got poison ivy, but there is a much better way to solve the problem.
Swallow a Fistful of Pills
And do it Without Gagging
I have a major gag reflex. Just ask any of the dentists I’ve seen. So it came as a surprise when one of them commented on easily I swallowed the supplements he gave me. (I was having mercury amalgams removed, and the supplements were intended to combat the effects of any mercury that came loose in the process.)
Curing Poison Oak and Poison Ivy
A simple soap is all you need — but it has to be the right soap (tecnu).
