This post will be a hodge-podge of topics likely unrelated to each other, but at least will come up in a search.
People with food poisoning, drug overdoses, excessive gas, dry heaving and vomiting all have a friend in Activated Charcoal (#366-2). This should be on everyone’s shelf at home and certainly packed in your bags when going overseas. Activated Charcoal reduces the amount of poison absorbed into the blood stream from the digestion and it works instantly on contact. At first signs of nausea/diarrhea, take 4 capsules. If vomiting has begun, open 6 capsules into about 1/4 cup water, make a little slurry and begin sipping through a straw AFTER vomiting. (Do not discourage vomiting – it is your intelligent body trying to save your life.) The sooner this treatment begins, the less severe the symptoms will be. AND, when this hits you will NOT feel like going to the store to get some so have it on hand – it doesn’t go bad.
Insect stings or bee stings with swelling also benefit from an Activated Charcoal poultice. Use your saliva to wet the powder and apply to unbroken skin.
If you don’t have activated charcoal, and you know your weeds, you can chew up a washed leaf of plantain and apply it to the bite and secure it there. It is a life saver.
If you find a tick, apply any essential oil to it before trying to dislodge it. The strength of the essence will make the tick go into reverse. Then remove it. Many people have tea tree, or lavender, or other concentrated essence on hand. These have been shown to be antimicrobial, and they stimulate circulation locally.
More to come.
Consider this…..I have learned more from very sick people than I have from double-blind, placebo-controlled, cross-over studies. My sick clients taught me how to get them well - things that even my teachers didn't know. I have such smart clients.

So if the required warnings have not scared you away, then you have a chance. I'm reporting here what kinds of approaches actually helped very sick people get well, AND the kinds of things that actually made them sick (and it usually isn't lack of exercise, weight, menopause or smoking - it is the underlying cause of all those things.)
