    Thank you so much for the KP remedy. I’ve tried body washes with urea, commercial scrubs, moisturizers, the works, and nothing has worked until now. After three days I can see such an improvement. I almost have smooth arms! Thank you thank you thank you!

    Cod liver oil (more commonly known as fish oil), especially in liquid form is also great for arthritis! It really helps reduce swelling and arthritis pain if taken daily.

    Hi. I’ve had horrible skin issues since I was ten, with big red and scaly patches that rise up like a blister and then just pop off, leaving behind raw skin and often plenty of blood. It’s a rare form of eczema but since I tried a body scrub of sugar and olive oil, they are gone! I got some on the wounds by accident and I felt great after the bath, so I did it again. I’m now completely cured and the doctor agreed to stop my medication!
    Everyone with skin so dry that it patches up should try it :)

    Oh my god!! I was just browsing other articles on this site and when I came to number 7 on this list, I was like…this has a name? Thank you so much!! I always thought I’d have to live with it, I’ve been to one or two dermatologists and they never had an answer to what it was. I’m going to try this today!! :)

  5. need kp to vanish

    Hey betty, i did the acv rinse with the the coconut/sugar scrub last night and my arms and thighs are super smoother! I shaved beforehand and applied lotion after, and usually those things would give me bumps but they didnt! This could be my cure for kp. I have a question though, how many times a week should i do this? I dont think i should do it everynight, but whats your recommendation?

    For cramps I drink one cup of iced raspberry tea on the first day of my menstrual cycle and I don’t feel the cramps again for the entire cycle. I do this every month. I’ve had my sisters and several friends try this out as well and they all said it worked for them. Here’s how I make it:

    * Pour boiling water over two bags of raspberry tea
    * Steep for 10 minutes
    * Allow to cool, then pour over ice and enjoy!

    Raspberry leaves are great for soothing and strengthening the uterus. My sister’s midwife encouraged her to drink raspberry tea several times a day the last couple weeks of her pregnancy to help the delivery go faster. In her book, Making Babies, Shoshanna Easling also suggests raspberry tea throughout pregnancy.

    Dear Betty,
    I’ve been a great fan of your blog since last spring when I found it, and have developed in art of crunchiness ever since: I used to make my own yougurt before but now I also make my own skincare products and clean the house with baking soda, Marseille soap and vinegar solely :D
    The reason I write to you, is because I want you to know how I cured Seborrhoeic ecxema in my chin naturally.
    I have had this condition for 15 years, and it tends to get worse in autumn. My doctor gave me a recipe of antibiotics a couple of years ago, and I happily used them for some time. They DID cure the rash, but since I’ve become more aware of how bad they are in every possible way, I don’t want to use them if I REALLY got no other options.
    A couple of days ago I looked up in the mirror and there it was again, worse than ever. I tried to ease it down with some newly infused calendula oil and chamomile essential oil with poor results. I keep my own blog and was writing a new post about DIY (foot) deodorant (thanks for participating, I used some shea butter in the recipe because you did, too), and I wanted to clear up some facts about clove essential oil, which I used in the recipe.
    I found out most amazing things, i.e. that clove oil is antiviral, antifungal and antibacterial and can cure acne etc.
    So I did something I don’t recommend to anyone: went to the bathroom and applied undiluted clove essential oil with a cotton pad to my chin.
    It did sting quite a bit, but after an hour or so ECZEMA WAS GONE!
    It was 11pm, but I HAD to make my own healing salve IMMEDIATELY, so I melted some beeswax with calendula oil and added generous amount of clove essential oil with smaller amounts of, patchouli, tea tree and peppermint (pathuli has the same healing properties as clove, tea tree is generally good for any rash and peppermint makes a wonderlful cooling effect, but I guess you as my guru already knew these things ;) ).
    I have been using this salve 3-4 times a day, and my chin has been absolutely free of any signs of inflammation, so it really DOES work for me, hooray!!!
    I wish you all the best, (and excuse my English)

    Hi Crunchy Betty,

    I just found your website today while searching for natural ways to reduce blackheads; your tips, combined with your readers’ tips, worked great! The blackheads diminished dramatically and my skin is alot smoother. Your tips also helped a big pimple diminish too!

    Do you, or any of your readers, have any suggestions for spider veins on the face? Particularly, the nose and chin area?

    Thank you SO MUCH for sharing your natural ideas with us and sharing the natural ideas that readers have shared with you!

    Sincerely, Cindy

    In regards to using coconut oil for dandruff… so I’m 3 weeks into my no poo method. I’m using 1 tbsp honey in 1/2 c water and not only am I in the thick of it grease-wise, now I’m noticing dandruff !!! I started an acv rinse, 1 tbsp to 1/2 c water as well in hopes that will help, then I noticed the coconut oil thing. I’m afraid to try it as my hair is already greasy enough. What should I do?? … thank god for head wraps :( …

  11. Nowhere does the Bible say that Satan is in hell or that he has any influence in hell.

    This process provides women and men with a
    low maintenance alternative to shaving and other methods of hair removal.
    Women undergoing breast cancer treatment and their caregivers will
    hold the Texas Flag and the Anthem singer will be Lyle Lovett.

  12. Nevertheless, the baseline explanation includes areas like wrongfully
    administered medical treatment, damages arising from a doctor’s incompetence and resulting loss in
    terms of well-being and money for the patient. This could include compensation
    for lost earnings, medical expenses, travel costs, vehicle
    repair, etc. Compensation can also be sought for psychological injuries as a result of illness,
    false arrests, or malicious prosecution.
