Aloe Vera juice is helpful in combating a lot of ailments. It has been known to slow down tumor growth and cancer. Just read an article from a guy in Tuscon,Az telling the benefits of using aloe Vera for a range of problems: kidneys, joints, diabetes. Of course, organic and preservative free is the way to go when purchasing the juice. I might start using the aloe Vera juice because I am beginning early stages of arthritis and I hate pills, stomach bleeding and liver problems I don't need. Thought this might help for those most visited by Arthur.
I have heard good things about aloe vera too.
We have some stuff down here we get at the Mennonite store called "Unker's" Multi-Purpose Medicated Salve (made by O.T.R.). It's pretty dang good for aches and pains. A 7 oz jar is $13.75 but I think it's worth it.

@Nope ...I agree and it seems really dumb to me for them to think that they can't be caught. Duh!

I thank you so very much for your concern and advice. I am blessed to have found kind people in the "dead bird society"
Oglala, I would also pray that every single time your daughter drinks or does her drugs that they will not have any effect on her. Pray that if anything, every time she does it, it makes her SICK! Pray that God will keep her miserable. He can do it and she will break.:)

I've heard of the Rum version. Guess it's all about which prime elixir you prefer, hehe!

I always thought raisins were a really healthy food until I was watching something on t.v. that caught my attention the other day.
(Sorry I can't tell you what show it was because it was just another one of those days where the television was just on for a distraction)..

But it seems that one handful of raisins has more sugar in them than a whole raw apple, a scoop of iced cream, or a hand full of Peanut M&M's! To think that raisins had MORE sugar per serving than iced cream or Peanut M&M.s absolutely astonished me.

I'm a diabetic,(inherited that one too, right along with my other ailments), and I always thought that raisins would have been lower on the chart than they were compared to those other foods! Pretty amazing, huh?

Here you go. My Dad died due to complications of diabetes, so I like to offer anyone that suffers any sort of tips that may benefit their condition, or not worsen it. One of the reasons raisins are high is because most of the moisture is removed shrinking the fruit and increasing "natural" sugar potency to a small bite.

Thank you, JOTL. What a sweet thing to post for those of us who have this disease!!

Personally, I love dried cranberries better than raisins. My chickens and my "green & blue winged wonder bird" get the seedless raisins around here unless they are in an occasional cookie or muffin.. I never was fond of them enough to chow down on a handful on purpose, hehe.

I eventually grew to like prunes simply because I ate them for more iron and potassium. I found a good brand and decided I kind of liked them after all! As long as they're a little bit moist and not try and chewy, they're pretty tasty in my book.

And welcome to the bird thread. I've not seen you here before that I recall.

Love the link you so kindly posted! Thanks again!!!

I like the dry and chewy ones that are somewhat tart as well,, with a cup of coffee.

Arthur likes to mess with my wrists and ankles. I use Watkin's Liniment the same as my granny did many years ago and that works if you can get past the smell (that will take your breath if you get too close) and don't get it in on your lips, eyes, or private areas. It burns just about the same as cutting up raw jalepeno peppers.

I tried other creamy type ointments and most are too greasy to suit me. Thanks for all the suggestions, but I will stick with what works for me.

AW, I used to work with harness race horses many, many years ago and there was this ointment called "Beagle"(sp?) balm or some such..
(Wish I could remember the exact name of it).
But I rubbed it into the horses muscles after I'd taken them for a harnessed work-out run around the tracks and had finished bathing and brushing them down. It made your hands even tingle and feel numb.
There are many times I wish I could find that stuff now...
Interesting I never heard of it. We raced harness horses for quite a few years, mostly in Yonkers, New York, and just before we moved here, at a track that opened in Ma. We got out of the business about 10 years ago...talk about boats having a hole in which you throw money. Let me tell you, race horses are much worse. We won plenty of races, but the upkeep was very expensive. Lots of horsemen used DMSO on their animals, and also used it on themselves. It is a wonder that they didn't poison themselves.

Google 'glycemic index' and it will help you differentiate between the good carbs and the bad carbs (sugar). For instance, everyone thinks that wheat bread is better for you than white bread. However, if you look on the glycemic scale there is not that much of a difference between them in terms of their effect on your blood sugar.

We used Tuttles Liniment on our race horses. We diluted it in water, and then gave them a bath with it after exercise.
That stuff burns like heck, but I admit, I've tried it a few times on my back. It could take your breath away as well. We have a few old horse leg bandages still hanging around, and even after 10 years out of the business, I can still smell the Tuttles.

there are also many natural herbal supplements and home remedies you should try before going to pharmaceuticals and insulin, like cinnamon, fish oil, aloe vera, vanadium, chromium, gynema to name just a few.

Whatever that balm was, it stunk to the high heavens too.. I could hardly wash it off of me, nor get the stink of it out of my nostrils. My hands would tingle for about an hour afterward. Made it hard as heck to smoke a cigarette, I'll tell ya that much, LOL! And God help you if you forgot and scratched your nose after a fly buzzed you.

This was back in the mid 70's down in Florida. So what that muscle balm stuff truly was, God only knows.

My memory isn't what is used to be, but I'm wanting to say that the track was called the "Ben White Raceway" maybe??

Geez, my brain these days.. I swear.

I see the original Batmobile driven in the iconic television series sold for a tiny $4.2 million dollars at auction, Holy high bid, Batman.
