Some Homesteading Medicne

This is the story of an asthmatic woman who is allergic to everything. This is also the story of a woman who's goal is to grow her own food, raise her own chickens, and make her property pretty. Year after year, she would medicate herself with pill after pill like Benadryl and Claritin. This cost roughly $1-2 a DAY! That was roughly 210 bucks a year! That doesn't take into account the emergency inhaler she would also have to carry with her everyday just in case.

There has to be a better way!!!

So last year, this woman read a couple articles. One was about milk allergies and asthma. She stopped drinking milk and guess what- the asthma attacks dropped to basically non-existent. Then she read in several places that eating a tablespoon of honey (preferably comb in honey- or even just the comb) everyday would help alleviate allergies. This made a lot of sense for people who had pollen allergies. I mean, what is honey made out of? So if you can eat honey without a problem, there's a good chance your body might be able to build up a tolerance for pollen and alleviate the symptoms. It seemed to work! She only used Claritin some days, not everyday.

Isn't it amazing how when the Lord said He'd provide, He provides?

By the way, it goes without saying that the FDA didn't approve any of these treatments (not that I bothered to ask them), and you should consult a doctor before trying them, and this website isn't intended to diagnose, treat, or provide medical advice. Did I cover it all?

I'm a firm believer in the healing powers of honey! When a friend of the family went into the hospital to have part of her intestines removed, they treated her incision every day with 100% pure honey...and told her to do the same thing when she got home.

They charged her a LOT of money for the info, of course. Mainstream medecine is finally catching on...

Isn't it funny, *ahem*, that all these natural methods for dealing with health and injuries and illnesses are coming back and proven to work just as well, if not better, than modern medicine! (most of the time)
