Just a word of caution.

When using herbs and roots be very sure you know all their properties and which ones can be ingested.

Also know what can and cannot be used together.

There are some herbs that may prove fatal when mixed with prescription medications.

It is also very hard to properly identify some possibly healing wild plants from a look alike deadly wild plants. It would take much knowledge and study.

Native Americans, I believe were gifted knowledge from the plants and earth itself, along with generations of passed down wisdom. It was part of their religion and ceremony to use such plants.

Just heard from someone recently about peeling the top layer of an onion. You can either slice it or cut in chunks. Place these in small containers throughout your house. They're supposed to absorb all the bacteria and germs. Replace them with fresh ones every 5-7 days or as they begin to dry up and discolor. Suppoosed to be real good for colds and flu.

Also wash hands a lot and use hand sanitizer to keep from spreading germs. Those are my helpful hints for the day. Everybody stay well!

In 1919 when the flu killed 40 million people there was this Doctor that visited the many farmers to see if he could help them combat the flu...
Many of the farmers and their families had contracted it and many died.

The doctor came upon this one farmer and to his surprise, everyone was very healthy. When the doctor asked what the farmer was doing that was different the wife replied that she had placed an unpeeled onion in a dish in the rooms of the home,(probably only two rooms back then). The doctor couldn't believe it and asked if he could have one of the onions and place it under the microscope. She gave him one and when he did this, he did find the flu virus in the onion. It obviously absorbed the bacteria, therefore, keeping the family healthy.

Now, I heard this story from my hairdresser. She said that several years ago, many of her employees were coming down with the flu, and so were many of her customers. The next year she placed several bowls with onions around in her shop. To her surprise, none of her staff got sick. It must work. Try it and see what happens. We did it last year and we never got the flu.

Placing onions around the house works very well. Be SURE to replace them every 4 weeks or so. DO NOT use them for anything else. (Place them in sealed plastic bag before discarding, no sense in spreading the trapped bacteria around) Good luck.

Yes while it's true that marijuana helps with stomach (and other) issues. I believe that if it gives comfort with "end of life" situations, by all means it should be a legal "option". But for recreational purposes the over-all effects are far worse:

Effects on Life

Research clearly demonstrates that marijuana has the potential to cause problems in daily life or make a person's existing problems worse. In fact, heavy marijuana users generally report lower life satisfaction, poorer mental and physical health, relation-ship problems, and less academic and career success compared to their peers who came from similar back-grounds. For example, marijuana use is associated with a higher likelihood of dropping out from school. Several studies also associate workers' marijuana smoking with increased absences, tardiness, accidents, workers' compensation claims, and job turnover.

As stated above I'd NOT recommend the use of it unless absolutely necessary to give comfort and ease to a person who would otherwise face a painful and stressful 'passing'.(MY opinion only)

I've heard my older relatives talk about this. For a cut or sore they would put like pork fat slab of hog jowl) on the cut to heal it. Also put tobacco leaf on a boil to bring it to a head.

People Who Eat Nuts More Than Three Times a Week Have Reduced Risk of Dying from Cancer or Cardiovascular Disease

July 16, 2013 — People who eat nuts, particularly walnuts, are more likely to live longer, finds research in BioMed Central's open access journal BMC Medicine. In a longitudinal study, researchers suggest that those who eat nuts more than three times a week have a reduced risk of dying from cancer or cardiovascular disease than non-nut eaters.

The PREDIMED nutrition trial based in Spain looked at the effect on the primary prevention of cardiovascular disease of over 7000 older people (aged 55 to 90) randomized to a Mediterranean Diet supplemented with extra virgin olive oil or nuts, compared to a control group following a low fat diet. In Mediterranean regions, nut consumption is relatively high compared to other countries. People who ate nuts tended to have a lower BMI and smaller waist. They were also less likely to smoke and were more physically active than those who rarely or never ate nuts. Nut eating was associated with a better diet in general as these people ate more vegetables, fruit and fish.

There were fewer people with type 2 diabetes or people taking medicine for hypertension in the group of people who ate the most nuts. Overall, nut eaters had a 39% lower mortality risk and walnut eaters 45% lower -- meaning that they were less likely to die than the non-nut eaters.

People eating more than 3 servings (1 serving -- 28 g) a week of nuts reduced risk of death due to cardiovascular disease by 55% and cancer by 40%. A similar effect was demonstrated for walnuts.

Prof Jordi Salas-Salvadó, from the Universitat Rovira i Virgili who led this study explained, "Quite how nuts are able prevent premature mortality is not entirely clear, nor why walnut should be better for you than other nuts. Walnuts have particularly high content of alpha-linoleic acid and phytochemicals, especially in their 'skin' both of which, along with fibre and minerals such as calcium, magnesium and potassium, may contribute to their healthy effect."

The association of the influenza virus with the disease was first discovered in 1933.

I feel sorry for anyone who finds this anecdote even slightly convincing.
