Gout is a very painful arthritic-like disease caused when Uric Acid crystals are deposited in tissues and joints of the body, instead of being eliminated from the body through the kidneys.

When Uric Acid accumulates in these areas, the body sends white blood cells to combat and try to remove them, causing inflammation and pain.

The most common place for Gout pain is the big toe, but it can also occur in other places such as the feet, ankles, wrists, fingers and elbows.


For an Acute Attack:  Dissolve 3 pills under tongue, 3-6 times each day to relieve symptoms until symptoms are gone.

For Prevention of Attacks:  Dissolve 3 pills under tongue, weekly until there are no more reoccurrences of Gout.

Colchicum Autumnale (Meadow Saffron) 30C

The history of the use of this remedy for gout, rheumatism, and inflammation dates back to the Eber’s Papers around 1500 BC!)  The prescription drug, Colchicine, prescribed to Gout patients is derived from the Colchicum autumnale plant.

Urtica urens 30C

Urtica urens is claimed since back to the 1800s to dramatically lower blood Uric acid levels.

Natrum Phosphoricum 9-12X or C

Nat Phos maintains equilibrium in the body, specifically the acid-alkaline balance in the cells of the body. It is the prime ‘acid neutralizer’ tissue salt.

It is effective in treating ACID REFLUX, acts as an emulsifier of fatty acids and helps in preventing formation of deposits of uric acid in the blood.


Nettle Root

Nettle Root encourages the excretion of Uric Acid from the kidneys.

Dosage:  250 milligrams capsules three times daily.

Nettle Root Tea

Traditional Medicines has a standardized Nettle Root Tea that has 2000 mg/serving.

Dosage:  Drink a cup 2-3 times daily during active bouts, 1 cup daily as a preventative.

Grape-seed Extract

Grape-seed Extract acts to reduce inflammation, thus easing pain.

Dosage:  50 to 100 milligrams 2-3 times daily.


Turmeric has powerful anti-inflammatory action. It is used in many traditional medicines for gout, arthritis, and other inflammatory conditions.

Dosage:  250 to 500 milligrams three times a day.


Alkalinize your Body

Since Gout is known to be caused by high uric acid levels, alkalinize your body in one of several ways:

Black Strap Molasses

Dosage:  1 Tablespoon/day.  You can mix it in water or eat it straight.  Also, consider adding 1/8 teaspoon of Baking Soda. This combination made the news as a cancer-fighting cure.  Click here for article.

Apple Cider Vinegar

Dosage:  1 teaspoon of ACV in 8 oz of water, twice daily.


Epsom Salts (Magnesium Sulfate)

Soak your aching feet in a bucket of 1 Cup Epsom Salts and hot water.  Or take a hot bath and add 2 Cups Epsom Salts to the bathwater. (Be sure to drink plenty of water while soaking and sweating.)

Castor Oil

Rub Castor Oil onto the aching joint.  If possible, cover joint with plastic wrap, then a hot cloth.  Allow 30 minutes for the therapeutic effects of the oil to absorb.


Many claim that eating 8 ounces of fresh or canned cherries daily is very effective in lowering uric acid levels and preventing attacks of gout.

ANTI-VIRUS (Ebola, Enterovirus D68) PROTOCOL

Dear Friends, Family, and Concerned Public,

In light of the current virus situations that are occurring in the world today (Ebola and Enterovirus D68), I have been doing some research and these are my suggestions for precautions, prevention, and remedies.

First, let me explain about viruses and how they function. A virus is a small infectious agent that replicates (reproduces) only inside the living cells of other organisms.  They can infect all types of life forms-animals, plants, and bacteria. Outside of a host it is just a speck of DNA or RNA, (genetic material which controls the identity and function of living cells), usually surrounded by a protein coat. It cannot move, divide or do anything by itself. It must attach and invade another cell to reproduce itself.

A virus enters your body through a cut, mucous membrane (mouth, nose, etc.), or insect bite and moves with body fluids until it is either discovered by your immune system and destroyed or comes across a type of cell to which it can attach and invade.  Different cells have different receptors which attach to proteins and other substances they need, and the virus coat resembles these proteins.

There are several natural things that have shown promise via laboratory research and studies for killing viruses. (For information on where to purchase the items I suggest, see bottom of page.)


Wash hands, arms and face frequently by washing with soap and water.

Use a Hand Sanitizer: The best hand sanitizer to use is Colloidal Silver Gel because it doesn’t dry out the skin, making cracks that viruses can get into.  Also, you can put some in your nostrils before going into public places to kill viruses entering that way.

2) HOME CARE PRECAUTIONS:  Bleach, White Vinegar, and Sol-U-Guard

Be extra vigilant in sanitizing your home.  Pay special attention to door knobs, light switches and other things people touch frequently.

Bleach:  Bleach kills microbes in 1-2 minutes.  Dilute ½ cup in 1 gallon of water. However, it is very caustic and according to Dr. Hulda Clark can cause depression.

White Vinegar: Mix vinegar 50-50 with water for disinfecting.

Sol-U-Guard Botanicals by Melaleuca (my favorite)

It kills 99.999% of bacteria and viruses on hard, nonporous surfaces, including Staphylococcus aureus, MRSA, Influenza A, Poliovirus Type 1, Rhinovirus type 37, Rotavirus and is completely non-toxic.


Many studies have concluded that Vitamin C and Vitamin D both boost the immune system, so start taking a high quality multi-vitamin/mineral.  The best product that I know of is BeyondTangy Tangerine 2.0 formulated by Dr. Joel Wallach.

Beyond Tangy Tangerine 2.0 is the most advanced multi-vitamin mineral complex on the market with over 8000 ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorption Capacity), certified organic ingredients, and synergizing cofactors to maximize vitamin and mineral uptake. It  provides you with the 90 essential nutrients for optimal health, energy boosting nutrients, PuriGenic™ antioxidant support, PrePro™ prebiotic and probiotic blend, over 500(#)mg of natural amino acids, and increased potencies of most vitamins and minerals for optimal wellness.

4) TAKE A NATURAL ANTI-VIRAL: Colloidal Silver/ Olive Leaf/Oil of Oregano.

 There are many natural herbs/remedies that are considered anti-virals, but I have great confidence in these three based on the research behind them and the testimonies of many people.

Olive Leaf (from aboutoliveleaf)

Researchers at the Upjohn pharmaceutical company reported the following antiviral effects using a salt made from olive leaf ingredients (Calcium elenolate) in laboratory experiments in live tissue. It had antiviral activity against every virus it was tested on and works as follows:

  • Penetrates into host cells and blocks viral replication.
  • Interferes with the virus’ production of the proteins it needs. (Interference with the virus’ hijacking of your cell function).
  • Inactivates the viruses, preventing their migration from infected cells and their connection with cell membranes.
  • Stops a retrovirus’s production of protease and reverse transcriptase – enzymes a retrovirus such as HIV uses to alter the RNA of a healthy cell.
  • Stimulates the human immune system response (to destroy them).

In short, olive leaf extract ingredients block a virus’ life cycle, stop it multiplying then call up immune cells to demolish it. It will likely do this to a greater or lesser degree to any viral infection, and so offers much hope to those who wish to avoid infections or those who need help in combating them.

Dosage:  Prevention: One capsule/day, for Active Infections:  One capsule 3x/day.

 Oil of Oregano (from naturalnews)

Oil of oregano combats pathogenic bacteria without disrupting beneficial bacteria. It is also anti-viral and anti-fungal according to many different university studies and independent research.

This is a rare three-in-one combination. In addition to that, it also rids the body of parasites, even giardia.

The active ingredient in Oregano Oil is carvacrol and you the product you purchase needs to contain a 70% carvacrol content to be effective. Another antibacterial ingredient is terpenes. Oregano’s antifungal properties come from thymol. Other nutrients include the powerful antioxidant rosmarinic, minerals including magnesium, and vitamins E and K.

The “Brazilian Journal of Microbiology” (December 2011) and the “Journal of Applied Microbiology” (May 2014) have both published articles on the anti-viral activity of Oregano Oil and both concluded that carvacrol is effective in inactivating many viruses.

Dosage:  Prevention:  Once capsule/day; for Active Infections: One capsule 3x/day for 10 day.

Colloidal Silver (10 ppm Solution)*

Dosage:  10ppm Solution – One teaspoon/daily for prevention, 3 teaspoons/daily for active cases.

The presence of Colloidal Silver near a virus, fungus, bacterium or any other single celled pathogen disables its oxygen metabolism enzyme, its chemical lung, so to say. Within a few minutes, the pathogen suffocates and dies and is cleared out of the body by the immune, lymphatic and elimination systems.

Taken orally, the silver solution is absorbed from the mouth into the bloodstream then transported quickly to the body cells. Swishing the solution under the tongue briefly before swallowing ensures fast absorption, In three to four days the silver will have accumulated in the tissues sufficiently for benefits to begin. (from familyhealthnews)

(Lately, the FDA has been scrutinizing and bullying manufacturers of Colloidal Silver, but don’t fret – they can’t touch it because Colloidal Silver is grand-fathered in as a pre-1938 healing modality. This makes it exempt from FDA jurisdiction.)

5) Homeopathic Remedies for Ebola

Homeopathy is a system of medicine based on the principles of “like cures like” and the infinitesimal (ie, the smallest amount to get the job done) dose. It was rediscovered by the German physician Dr. Samuel Hahnneman in the late 1700s and has over 200 years of proven success and research.

 The CDC says the symptoms of Ebola Hemorrhagic Fever are: Fever (greater than 38.6°C or 101.5°F), Severe headache, Muscle pain, Weakness, Diarrhea, Vomiting, Abdominal (stomach) pain, Unexplained hemorrhage (bleeding or bruising).

With those principles and symptoms in mind, the best homeopathics for combating Ebola are:

Arsenicum album:  for nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea

China:  for fever, chills, weakness, headache

Crotalus horridus:  hemorrhaging

Influenzinum: flu-like symptoms

Lachesis:  hemorrhaging

Mercurius: diarrhea, tremors, weakness

Naturally Better has this combination Remedy ($12.00 for 2 ounce bottle).

Dosing:  For prevention, once/week.  For active cases, three times/day.

More Detailed Information about Colloidal Silver

(from familyhealthnews):

Silver deficiency is responsible for the improper functioning of the immune system concludes Dr. Robert O. Becker, M.D. who has conducted extensive research into the curative properties of silver for many years at the Upstate Medical Center, Syracuse University, Syracuse, NY.

Dr. Becker’s experiments conclude that silver works on the full spectrum of pathogens without any side effects or damage to the body.

All strains of pathogens resistant to other antibiotics are killed by silver. The March 1978 issue of Science Digest, in an article, “Our Mightiest Germ Fighter,” reported: “Thanks to eye-opening research, silver is emerging as a wonder of modern medicine.

An antibiotic kills perhaps a half-dozen different disease organisms, but silver kills some 650. Resistant strains fail to develop. Moreover, silver is virtually non-toxic.” The article ended with a quote by Dr. Harry Margraf, a biochemist and pioneering silver researcher who worked with the late Carl Moyer, M.D., chairman of Washington University’s Department of Surgery in the 1970s: “Silver is the best all-around germ fighter we have.”

He also states that silver does more than kill disease-causing organisms. Silver causes major growth stimulation of injured tissues. Burn patients and even elderly patients notice more rapid healing. He discovered that cancer cells can change back to normal cells.

How It Works

The presence of Colloidal Silver near a virus, fungus, bacterium or any other single celled pathogen disables its oxygen metabolism enzyme, its chemical lung, so to say. Within a few minutes, the pathogen suffocates and dies and is cleared out of the body by the immune, lymphatic and elimination systems.

Unlike pharmaceutical antibiotics which destroy beneficial enzymes, Colloidal Silver leaves these tissue-cell enzymes intact as they are radically different from the enzymes of primitive single-celled life. Thus Colloidal Silver is absolutely safe for humans, reptiles, plants and all multi-celled living matter.

Colloidal Silver is the result of an electro-magnetic process that pulls microscopic particles from a larger piece of silver into a liquid such as water. These microscopic particles can more easily penetrate and travel throughout the body. Colloidal Silver works as a catalyst, disabling the enzyme that all one celled bacteria fungi and viruses use for their oxygen metabolism. In short, the bad guys suffocate.

Unlike with antibiotics, resistant strains have never been known to develop. In fact, antibiotics are only effective against perhaps a dozen forms of bacteria and fungi, but never viruses. Because no known disease causing organism can live in the presence of even minute traces of the chemical element of metallic silver, colloidal silver is effective against more than 650 different disease causing pathogens.

Since there is not enough room to list all the diseases against which Colloidal Silver has been used successfully, here is a tiny sample; acne, allergies appendicitis, arthritis, blood parasites, bubonic plague, burns – colloidal silver is one of the few treatments that can keep severe burn patients alive, cancer, cholera, conjunctivitis, diabetes, gonorrhea hay fever, herpes, leprosy, leukemia lupus, Lyme disease malaria, meningitis parasitic infections both viral and fungal, pneumonia, rheumatism, ringworm, scarlet fever septic conditions of the eyes, ears, mouth and throat, shingles, skin cancer, staph infections, strep infections, syphilis, toxemia, trench foot, all forms of viruses, warts andstomach ulcer. In addition it also has veterinary uses such as canine parvo virus.


Taken orally, the silver solution is absorbed from the mouth into the bloodstream then transported quickly to the body cells. Swishing the solution under the tongue briefly before swallowing ensures fast absorption. In three to four days the silver will have accumulated in the tissues sufficiently for benefits to begin.

Since Colloidal Silver is eliminated by the kidneys, lymph system and bowel after three weeks, a regular daily intake is recommended as a protection against dangerous pathogens. In cases of minor burns, an accumulation of Colloidal Silver can hasten healing, reducing scar tissue and infection The lives of millions of people susceptible to chronic low-grade infections can be enhanced by this powerful preventative health measure.

Topical Uses

Colloidal Silver is painless on burns, cuts, abrasions, in open wounds, in the nostrils for a stuffy nose, and even in a person’s eyes because unlike antiseptics, it does not destroy tissue cells.

Nor should one have to worry about the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) being put in charge of this home remedy. Colloidal Silver is grandfathered as a pre-1938 healing modality. This makes it exempt from FDA jurisdiction.

A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to School: Education!

A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to School: Education! by Tamera Swedlund (aka Herb Mamasita) is about her journey from homeschooling her children to home-educating them, or rather, allowing them to educate themselves (within certain guidelines) by following their own interests and curiosity.

Most new homeschooling parents set up a schoolroom complete with desks, a chalkboard, and a stack of workbooks to get through each day.  Often this leads to boredom for the children and, more often, to frustration and angst building between a loving parent and their offspring.  The fact of the matter is that children have an innate willingness and desire to learn new things.  Think of all the things children learn between birth and kindergarten; most notably, a language!

This little book gives an honest and humble and funny account of the many mistakes the author made in her first few years of homeschooling. It chronicles the various things that triggered her to set her family free from rote memorization and workbooks to allowing her children to pursue their own interests and, unwittingly, educate themselves in ways she never could have. If you are a homeschooling parent or considering it, this book will encourage you that, yes, you can do it, and yes, you can have fun doing it!  The book is available only via Amazon Kindle at this time for $4.99.  Click here for more information.
