Recipes and Remedies

1Cor6:19-20 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.

This started off as a simple listing of my personal favorite recipes. I added formulations for healing compounds and personal care products that I use. Now I am adding more reference information from my health page, to turn it into more of an overall “wellness guide”. My intention is to post it in HTML, PDF, and EPUB on my site, for all to use.

There are a lot of solutions and options, but because money is tight, and we are heading into troubled times, my intention is to focus on low cost and readily available solutions. But keep that in mind, as other options are available. As an example as to what I mean, I will give you formulations on using Borax as a boron supplement, but you could just buy pills on-line.

“If people let government decide what foods they eat and what medicines they take, their bodies will soon be in as sorry a state as are the souls of those who live under tyranny.” Thomas Jefferson

It comes down to this:

The Weston A. Price Foundation is your source for accurate information on nutrition and health, always aiming to provide the scientific validation of traditional foodways. People seeking health today often condemn certain food groups — such as grains, dairy foods, meat, salt, fat, sauces, sweets and nightshade vegetables — but the Wise Traditions Diet is inclusive, not exclusive.

This is some of my personal favorites. I hail from the deep south, and was raised poor. We are the kind of folk that cook with lard, bacon grease, save bones for stock, etc… It is poor peoples food, and good for you to boot. I would also suggest that you get Nourishing Traditions by Sally Fallon Morell


ACV = Apple Cider Vinegar (Only use one with the mother aka Brags)

All beans (except Lentils and split pea) should soak for 24 hours and cook for 12!

If you want dinner at 6 at night, then at 6 in the morning soak them and the next morning at 6 start to cook them.

Salt should only be Himalayan Sea Salt (pink in color) or Celtic (grey in color).

10 Spices for the Minimalist Kitchen

  1. Basil, use in meatballs, meatloaf, soups and tomato based dishes.
  2. Cayenne, excellent on meat, soups, sauces, chili and Mexican dishes
  3. Chili Powder, marinades, chili, Mexican dishes
  4. Cumin, definitely in chili, also used in marinades, and Mexican dishes.
  5. Garlic Powder, I use garlic in pretty much every savory dish I make!
  6. Onion Powder, use in every savory dish.
  7. Oregano, marinades, tomato based dishes, and a great addition to chili and taco seasoning.
  8. Smoked Paprika, could there be a better spice?! Use on roasts, steak, meatloaf, eggs, in marinades, oh, everything savory.
  9. Cinnamon (Saigon), a sweet spice, and wonderful in breakfast dishes and desserts, but also adds an interesting touch to stir-fries
  10. Ginger Powder, another sweet spice, great in desserts, but a must for stir-fry dishes and marinades.


It is OK to have electric appliances to aide in the making of food, but one should master the lowest common denominator first. These skills will serve you well when things break or are not available.

Bake eggs instead of hard boiling them!

Set the oven to 325F. You can bake up to 4 dozens of eggs for thirty minutes.

Eggs Florentine

  1. Combine everything, except the eggs, in a 9 or 10 inch skillet, heat on medium for about 8 minutes.
  2. Using a spoon, make 4 “wells” and break 1 egg in each “well”.
  3. Turn the heat to low and cover with a lid.
  4. Cook till egg whites are solid, approximately 4 - 5 minutes.

Hootenanny Pancakes

If you use all-purpose flour (wheat), Hootenanny Pancakes turn into huge popovers! So much fun!

  1. Put butter in a large cast iron frying pan (or a metal 9 x 13 pan), place in oven and preheat to 425 degrees F.
  2. Blend eggs, flour and milk together.
  3. When oven is preheated, pour batter into hot buttered pan.
  4. Bake for 25 minutes.
  5. Cut into wedges and serve hot with fruit sauce, jam or syrup.

Beans and Soups

How to make soup - basic guidelines

  1. Choose a type of fat (Like butter, lard, or olive oil)
  2. Choose your base (Chicken, beef, or fish stock? Tomato purée? Cream or milk? Choose one — or two)
  3. Choose your meat (or none)
  4. Choose your veggies
    • Onion is a pretty standard veggie because it imparts so much flavor.
    • Garlic, carrots, and celery are all fairly common too — though not always used.
    • There are also beans, potatoes, spinach, kale, corn, and so on.
    • Use whatever you have, and whatever you like!
  5. Choose your spices
    • Celery seed, marjoram, thyme, parsley, and sage go well with chicken.
    • Marjoram, rosemary and thyme go well with beef.
    • Basil, oregano or fennel can be a nice addition to tomato-based soups.
    • Chiles need chili powder and perhaps cumin.
    • Cream soups might benefit from a dash or parsley or thyme.

Sea salt and black pepper are your two most basic spices, so you will want to include them (well…at least the salt). Here are a few more popular flavor combinations.

Once you’ve decided on what ingredients to use, making soup is very simple:

  1. Heat a large soup pot over medium heat
  2. Sauté your aromatic vegetables (onion, garlic, celery, carrot) in your fat
  3. Cook your meat if necessary (for example, stew beef)
  4. Add your base (except milk or cream), veggies, meat, and spices
  5. Taste and adjust
  6. Allow to simmer for an hour or two
  7. Taste and adjust again
  8. Add any cream or milk just before serving and heat through

Bone Broth (This is a traditional healing remedy as as well as yummy food!)

The health benefits of bone broth have been hailed across cultures and time thanks to its bountiful vitamins and minerals. It’s packed with good stuff, including iron, selenium, calcium and vitamin K. It’s easy to make at home using mostly your kitchen scraps.

  1. Bone Broth Boosts Immunity
    • Amino acids in bone broth, like arginine, glutamine, and cysteine, boost immunity in humans and animals.
  2. Bone Broth Alleviates The Common Cold And Bronchitis
    • Aid in alleviating symptoms of the common cold, by clearing mucus, opening respiratory pathways, and providing easily digested nutrition.
    • In addition, chicken soup naturally contains the amino acid cysteine, which chemically resembles the bronchitis drug acetylcysteine.
  3. Bone Broth Fights Inflammation
    • Many of the amino acids in bone broth (such as cystine, histidine, and glycine) reduce inflammation, and L-glutamine specifically reduces gut inflammation.
  4. Bone Broth Strengthens Bones And Teeth
    • The necessary nutrients for bone-formation requires “an adequate and constant supply of nutrients” as follows: calcium, protein, magnesium, phosphorus, vitamin D, potassium, zinc, manganese, copper, boron, iron, vitamin A, vitamin K, vitamin C, and the B vitamins.
    • Bone broth with vegetables and meat or fish provides a good source of all of these vitamins and minerals.
  5. Bone Broth Promotes Weight Loss
  6. Bone Broth Improves Hydration
    • Bone broth, especially when it’s made from vegetables, adds electrolytes (minerals) and carbohydrates (from vegetables) to the diet.
  7. Restore Exercise Capacity with Bone Broth
    • Liquids with carbohydrates and electrolytes, like a bone broth simmered with vegetables, outperform water alone when it comes to restoring exercise capacity that may be lost from dehydration and electrolyte depletion.
  8. Build Muscle with Bone Broth
    • The amino acids in bone broth can help stimulate muscle protein synthesis. Muscle protein synthesis is essential for the ongoing growth, repair, and maintenance of skeletal muscle groups.
  9. Improve Mood with Bone Broth
    • Your diet influences your gut bacteria, and your gut bacteria influence your brain. The makeup of gut bacteria, called your microbiome, influences how the brain is wired from infancy to adulthood, along with moods, memory, the ability to learn, and how to deal with stress. When the gut microbiome is healthy, it sends happy signals to the brain; when it’s unhealthy, it can send signals of anxiety.

In addition to these benefits of bone broth, the gelatin it contains has an additional 9 bonus side-effects:

Special Note: In real hard times, keeping a stock pot going is a must. You should own a large one, made of stainless steal. As you prep meals, place all vegetable scraps in it, as well as left over bones, skins, and other animal parts. You can mix the type of animal products (checking, pork, beef, etc…). This will give you stock all the time and if you have a cup a day, it will help keep you healthy. You should make sure you add black pepper and sea salt on occasion as well as ACV (and other seasoning, and of course water).

Note: This is for chicken, but the concept is the same for pork, beef, fish, etc…

If you are using a whole chicken, cut off the wings and remove the neck, fat glands and the gizzards from the cavity. By all means, use chicken feet if you can find them—they are full of gelatin. (Jewish folklore considers the addition of chicken feet the secret to successful broth.) Even better, use a whole chicken, with the head on. These may be found in Oriental markets. Farm-raised, free-range chickens give the best results.

  2. Simmer untill bones are tinder (can be broken with ease), normally 3 to 5 days.

In a bowl, mix cabbage with caraway seeds, sea salt and whey. Pound with a wooden pounder or a meat hammer for about 10 minutes to release juices. Place in a quart-sized, wide-mouth mason jar and press down firmly with a pounder or meat hammer until juices come to the top of the cabbage. The top of the cabbage should be at least 1 inch below the top of the jar. Cover tightly and keep at room temperature for about 3 days before transferring to cold storage. The sauerkraut may be eaten immediately, but it improves with age.

Saltine Crackers

Makes about 60 2 x 2 inch crackers but may vary based on how thinly rolled and size cut

  1. In the work bowl of a food processor, pulse the flour and salt to combine.
  2. Add the melted butter and process until a coarse meal – less than a minute.
  3. Add the water and process until a dough is formed – about 1-2 minutes.
  4. Let rest 30-60 minutes to allow the gluten to relax.
  5. Preheat oven to 400°F and line two sheet pans with parchment paper.
  6. Divide the dough into quarters and roll thin. You have two ways to do this, I much prefer the pasta machine method but you can do it by hand.
  7. By hand – lightly flour the work surface and the top of the dough and using a heavy rolling pin, roll as thinly as possible.
  8. Cut into squares – I like about 2” x 2” – brush lightly with water, sprinkle with salt.
  9. Bake 400°F for 8-10 minutes until lightly golden. Keep and eye on them as they brown quickly and rotate the pans halfway through baking.

Stir the oat flour together with whole wheat flour, salt, sugar, and cinnamon in a bowl. Pour in the water and olive oil, and mix to form a soft dough. Place the dough onto the prepared baking sheet, and roll out 1/8-inch thick. Using a knife, partially slice through the dough in desired shapes.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until just barely brown, 10 to 15 minutes. Watch carefully, as they burn easily. Allow to cool completely on baking sheet before breaking along score lines into individual crackers.

NOTE: The cinnamon can easily be replaced with many different seasonings to make different flavors. Some of the different types I’ve tried: garlic Parmesan; regular salt; and garlic pepper.

Horseradish Sauce

  1. In a small bowl whisk together horseradish, vinegar, mustard, mayonnaise, ground red pepper and sour cream.

Some things to remember

  1. Requirements for good health
    • Air: The fresh, God made kind
    • Water: Clean and pure, lacking contamination, with minerals
    • Minerals: God made us from dust and so shall we return
    • Micro-Nutrients: Vitamins
    • Fats: Demonized, they are critical for good health
    • Sunshine: Creates vitamin D, man was meant to be outside
    • Sleep: Rest is very important for recovery
  2. Keep in mind the average human can last
    • 3 minutes without oxygen.
    • 3 hours without shelter in severe weather.
    • 3 days without water
    • 3 weeks without food
    • 3 months without hope
  3. Illness is caused by the following
    • Lacking nutrients: Causes most modern illness
    • Toxic agent: Chemical, Mineral
    • EMF: Radiation, Radio Waves, Light
    • Stress: Emotional well being can have a direct impact on you health.

Minerals are the most overlooked part of health, especially trace minerals.

They are the foundation upon which health is built. Minerals, water, and then all the rest. If you have all the minerals your body needs, it will go a long way to detox you, keep infections in check (bacterial and fungal), and keep inflammation down. A document that you most likely never heard of and should read is Modern_Miracle_Men.

Minerals like Boron, Manganese, Chromium, Iodine, Copper, Zinc, Vanadium, and Magnesium, are never mentioned by your doctor. He/she/it is never trained in the role they play in health. It would put the drug companies out of business. Some like Magnesium, Zinc, and Iodine are pushed in the alternative community, but the others you won’t hear about. Boron, is very key, as it helps regulate the others, as well as hormones (vitamin D, and sex hormones).

If you read about old folk medicine, or animal husbandry, you will know they used to check the teeth. Do you know why? Because your body will take minerals from your teeth first, so bad teeth are a sign of lack of minerals, i.e. bad health. I once met a woman who was locked up for being “crazy”, when really she just had deep religious convictions. During the review to see if she was sane, an older doctor ask to see her teeth. She was released, when she was talking with me about this she said she always wondered why he checked her teeth, I explained that it would show nutritional deficiencies. The mind is just another organ, if you are lacking in nutrients, it will cause mental issues as well as physical. The old doc knew this.

On a related issue, brushing your teeth and using a poison like fluoride, won’t help you one bit. Sweets are bad for the teeth, but it’s because they drain your body of magnesium. Animals don’t go to the dentist and the teeth don’t rot out, as long as they feed on what they are supposed to. The same goes for people. Now you know why they do not want this information getting out.

Germs and Viruses

The only thing mutating is the lies.

Like all the other lies that we have been taught from birth, this is another means of controlling us. It also has the benefit of cutting the population down and keeping the IQ’s down, by poor nutrition and toxins. When you realize the causes of illness (see above), the solutions are not hard or complex. They are also not very expensive.

What has struck me from studying animal husbandry, is that we (man kind), figured out the diet and how to maintain health for our animals for thousands of years, we just can’t do it for humans! Animals, when left to their own devices in a proper and uncontaminated environment, can take care of themselves. They even know what to seek out when they have an issue. But somehow humans still can’t pin it down. Give me a break.

EMF (Electric and Magnetic Fields)

8 Simple ways to reduce your EMF exposure

  1. Get rid of your microwave: It is easy to get rid of this typical kitchen device, and use more healthy ways not only for your food’s nutrition, but for your personal and family’s health. Use a convention oven or re-heat on the stove, or eat more raw.
  2. Power down at night: Connect your WI-FI to a switch so you can turn it off at night and when you do not need it during the day. This helps to lower the exposure in your home environment and get a better night’s sleep.
  3. Change your cell phone to airplane mode: If you use your phone as an alarm clock it is best to turn off the wireless signal so it is not being emitted all night long close to your brain. Also when walking or carrying your phone on you, if you do not need it, just put it on airplane mode.
  4. Keep all wireless devices out of the kitchen and bedroom: Best to keep all these devices out of where you eat and sleep as they are the two most highly used spaces of the home and where you spend much of your time.
  5. Do not carry your phone on your body: Try to identify times in your day when you do not need your phone on you or near you. Having a meal with someone. Spending time in nature. Walking the dog. When you are working on your computer.
  6. Talk on your wireless device using speakerphone: It is best when talking to not be holding your phone up to your head, have it placed at least 3 feet away to decrease your exposure.
  7. Eat these spices and take a magnesium supplement: Spices rich in phenolics, including cinnamon, turmeric, ginger, cloves, and rosemary are showing in research to help protect as well as repair damage from EMF due to their protective capacity against peroxynitrites. Peroxynitrite is a potent cytotoxic chemical that is formed naturally in the body by the interaction of nitric oxide and superoxide radicals (which result from EMF exposure). Also, since magnesium is a natural calcium channel blocker, it helps reduce the effects of EMF on your VGCCs. As a result, optimizing your magnesium level may help decrease damage from EMFs.
  8. Earthing: Vitamin G - G for the ground. Walk on the earth barefoot as much as you can to receive the benefits the Earth’s negative charge.

Going forward it looks like they (evil powers that be) are using our devices against us. Going back to a simpler life is more cost effective, and now seems to be a healthy choice as well. Not to mention the privacy advantages.


Genesis 2:7 And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.

NOTE: I can not make recommendations to others for legal reasons, this is what I have done for the following conditions. I would strongly recommend that you do your homework to determine what is right for you.

Dr. Berg’s Chart of Mental Illness as related to nutrient deficiencies:

(I have thought the connection was obvious. After reading about Niacin and treating my own issues I began to read a lot on this topic. It is sad, that most mental issues are caused be a lack of nutrients and that the “professionals” would rather treat you with chemicals that harm not heal. On a side note, one should fix the diet, cut the sugar out, and supplement, as a starting point. If that did not work, then tweak as needed.)


I purchase Borax from the grocery store in the laundry isle, and baking soda from same. DMSO, MSM, Magnesium Chloride I get from a farm supply company (Tractor Supply). You can also find wound care products and more at farm supply stores. Most other products I get from Swanson or Pure Bulk.


First Aid Kit

I am a big fan of prepping. First aid is something everyone should know and always have the resources to perform if needed. With this in mind I have come up with what I like for basic 1st aid. I have more then one, they are based on size and need. You will have to adjust the contents for your skills and resources available.

I have three:

  1. A small one for my lunch box fr use at work.
  2. Medium size for my truck, covers more and for any play I happen to be.
  3. Full on at home (base camp), full of options for just about anything.

Base Ingredients:

Please note that I use other things that I would not be without (borax, oregano oil, tea tree oil, etc…), but the above list is my base for first aid, not everything I know how to use and stock.

Mix the above ingredients in a glass (do not use plastic) and drink before each meal (breakfast, lunch and dinner).

To help with overall health, weight loss, gut issues, arthritis, and more

Acid Reflux

Dosage: take 1 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar in 8 ounces water before and during your meals.

Aids Weight Loss and Calorie Reduction

Apple cider vinegar is often touted as an effective remedy for weight loss and reducing tummy fat. Studies have shown that apple cider vinegar helps the body feel satiated, leading to a reduction in calories.

The recommended dosage for weight loss is 1 tablespoon of apple cider in 8 ounces of water twice a day.

Clears Sinus Infections and Congestion

Apple cider vinegar can be used for sinus infections and congestion. It can be added to distilled water and used in a Neti pot (1/2 teaspoon vinegar and 6 ounces of water.) Or you can boil a cup or two of water on the stove. Remove the water from heat and add 1-2 Tablespoons of apple cider vinegar. Drape a towel over your head to make a tent and lean over the steaming water. Slowly breathe in the steam, being careful not to burn yourself!

Treats Pink Eye

For eye problems like pink eye (conjunctivitis) or pterygium, 1 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar should be added to 1 cup of distilled water. The resulting solution can then be used as eye drops 2-3 times a day until the condition resolves.

Balances Hair Sebum and pH (hair conditioner)

After shampooing and rinsing your hair, pour a solution of 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar in 1 cup warm water over your hair. If you have dandruff, be sure the solution spends a little time on your scalp. This hair rinse complements any lice treatment and can even prevent lice outbreaks. You can leave this in your hair or rinse it out. The vinegar smell will dissipate as your hair dries.

Reduces High Blood Pressure

Start out with 1 or 2 teaspoons of organic apple cider vinegar with the mother in 8 oz of water per day to lower HBP.


Baking Soda

5 reasons to drink a spoonful of baking soda dissolved in a glass of water:

  1. To improve your digestive system: Trouble with digestion is the type of thing that can derail your day (especially if you are one to get nervous). If you’re prone to tummy woes or just want to boost your general health, dissolving a teaspoon of baking soda in an eight-ounce glass of water every morning “to help maintain a healthy pH balance throughout the digestive system for optimal digestion, minimized acid reflux, and healthy bowel functioning.”
  2. To promote cardiovascular health: A compromised cardiovascular system can lead to things such as decreased energy, and negatively impacted mental functions, digestion, and immunity, adding that “circulatory issues can lead to the possibility of serious health conditions such as heart disease, chronic respiratory disease, and the development of various blood issues.” A teaspoon of baking soda in an eight-ounce glass of water daily is said to improve blood flow by helping to break down blockages.
  3. To reduce bloating: Once you know that you’re dealing with a bloat and not inflammation, try relieving the uncomfortable situation with a teaspoon of baking soda dissolved in four to six ounces of water. That by “returning the pH to neutral levels, the body’s gases can be calmed and the digestive processes, acids, and enzymes can return to their natural state and foods can be broken down normally without issues and disruptions,” which reputedly helps alleviate the issues causing your bloat.
  4. To keep your kidneys healthy: The kidneys are obviously vital to your bodily functions. In a study conducted at the Royal London Hospital, 134 patients with advanced chronic kidney disease who had a daily dose of baking soda were able to, alongside regular treatment, slow the decline of their kidneys by two-thirds as compared to those who didn’t have baking soda.
  5. To combat acid reflux: If you chronically suffer from acid reflux, you might consider adopting certain diet shifts to help lower heartburn as a long-term solution. But when you’re dealing with a bout of it in real time, half a teaspoon of baking soda with half a cup of water can help you find immediate relief against gastric acid symptoms".
Buffered Vitamin C (How to make Sodium Ascorbate)


Note: The ratio of C to baking soda is 2 to 1. You can scale the amount down based on need, and bowl tolerance.


This form of vitamin C is more easily tolerated than others for oral use. I use strait ascorbic acid with taken with water and a little salt (help with absorption) for a first response to a serious condition. You need to read up on how to take Vitamin C (dosage and frequency), and it is a good subject to study. However with that said the basic advice from Andrew Saul is: “Take enough C to be symptom free, whatever the amount might be”. When you get too much it will cause you run to the toilet. Back off a little, and you will be fine.

Use a wooden toothpick or coffee stirrer to mix and place in a small glass jar. This one will take you a little while to ‘dial’ it in for taste/strength.


Magnesium Chloride

Health Benefits of Magnesium
  1. Involved in hundreds of biochemical reactions in your body
    • Magnesium is found throughout your body. In fact, every cell in your body contains this mineral and needs it to function. -About 60% of the magnesium in your body occurs in bone, while the rest is in muscles, soft tissues, and fluids, including blood.
    • One of its main roles is to act as a cofactor — a helper molecule — in the biochemical reactions continuously performed by enzymes. It’s involved in more than 600 reactions in your body.
    • Energy creation: converting food into energy
    • Protein formation: creating new proteins from amino acids
    • Gene maintenance: helping create and repair DNA and RNA
    • Muscle movements: aiding in muscle contraction and relaxation
    • Nervous system regulation: regulating neurotransmitters, which send messages throughout your brain and nervous system
  2. Boost exercise performance
    • During exercise, you need more magnesium than when you’re resting, depending on the activity.
    • Magnesium helps move blood sugar into your muscles and dispose of lactate, which can build up during exercise and cause fatigue.
  3. Combat depression
    • Magnesium plays a critical role in brain function and mood, and low levels are linked to an increased risk of depression.
  4. Support healthy blood sugar levels
    • Studies suggest that about 48% of people with type 2 diabetes have low blood levels of magnesium, which may impair the body’s ability to regulate blood sugar levels effectively.
  5. May promote heart health
    • Magnesium plays an important role in keeping your heart healthy and strong.
  6. Boasts anti-inflammatory benefits
    • Low magnesium intake is linked to increased levels of inflammation, which plays a key role in aging and chronic disease.
  7. May help prevent migraine attacks
    • Migraine headaches can be painful and often cause symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, and sensitivity to light and noise.
  8. May improve PMS symptoms
    • Premenstrual syndrome (PMS) is one of the most common conditions in female-bodied people of childbearing age. It often causes symptoms such as water retention, abdominal cramps, tiredness, and irritability.
  9. May promote bone health
    • Magnesium is crucial for maintaining bone health and protecting against bone loss. In fact, 50–60% of your body’s magnesium is found in your bones.
  10. Support better sleep
    • Magnesium supplements are often used as a natural remedy for sleep issues such as insomnia.
    • This is because magnesium regulates several neurotransmitters involved in sleep, such as gamma aminobutyric acid.
  11. Help reduce anxiety symptoms

Internal Protocol

This is taken from Dr. Thomas Levy’s book “Magnesium: Reversing Disease” (a must read).

The oral approach was as follows (2.5% solution, 25 grams in 1000 cc of water):


Magnesium Oil

Stir until completely devolved, let cool. Place and container for use.

Magnesium Oil Plus

Using vodka instead of distilled water will decrease the “oily” feeling of magnesium oil. Adding MSM reduces the itchy feeling that can be caused by magnesium oil.

Add magnesium flakes to vodka. The vodka does not have to be heated; the magnesium flakes will dissolve easily with a bit of stirring. Stir in MSM crystals. (Usually available at farm stores.)

Bicarbonate Water (for magnesium)

Take chilled soda water, poor out a little and add 3 tbs of MoM. Put cap back on and shake it for 30 seconds. Chill for 2 hours and shake again. Add one tbs of this to a liter of water for a daily supply of magnesium.


Boron from Borax

Helps with:


Earth Clinic’s Ted recommends 1/4 teaspoon (940 mg ~ 1,000 mg) of borax in 1 liter of water for men and 1/8 teaspoon (470 mg ~ 500 mg) of borax in 1 liter of water for women each day. This would give men about 113 mg of boron each day they drink the solution and women about 56 mg of boron each day.


Walter Last recommends dissolving 1 teaspoon of borax in 1 liter of water and then taking one or 2 teaspoons of the borax solution daily


Borax can be added to a tub bath or foot bath to benefit the skin. Add 1 – 4 tablespoons to a tub bath or foot bath. This is especially useful for fungal conditions of the skin.

Borax is also used as a shampoo substitute. It seems to be especially helpful for those with an itchy or infected scalp. Add 1 tablespoon borax to 1 or 2 cups of warm water and use this water to rinse your hair from the scalp to the ends. You can then rinse this water out. For some, this may eventually cause some drying of the hair and scalp. If this is the case, you can try moisturizing your hair with a small amount of coconut oil.


Borax is one of the two ingredients in Ted’s Famous Mange Cure. 2 cups of 3% hydrogen peroxide, 4 cups water and 3 heaping tablespoons of borax are mixed together. The solution is used to bath the affected area, or entire animal several times a day. The solution is allowed to dry on the animal. For more information see this page.

Washing cloths

No soap to get clean, soft, non irritating for skin:
Mix Borax and Super Washing Soda 50/50 as powder. Then to clean clothes, three to four tablespoons in wash.

Side note: Make Washing Soda 1. Pour baking soda into a cookie sheet. Spread it out to form a layer. 2. Bake the soda at 400°F (200°C) for 30 minutes to 1 hour. The time isn’t critical. You can’t ‘overcook’ the soda, but you want to be sure to drive off all the water. Remove the pan from heat, allow the washing soda to cool, and store it in a sealed container to keep it from picking up moisture from the air.


Simple Salve and oil

Simple Salve

In a small double boiler– I use a Pyrex glass bowl atop of a pan– heat all oils, beeswax and butter. (Hints: when selecting your tools, keep in mind beeswax is hard to clean, and this recipe can be stirred with wooden coffee stirrers. They work great!) Remove from heat and add essential oils and vitamin E if using. Pour into containers and let cool on the counter top to harden. (Hint: the hardness of the salve can easily be adjusted. Before pouring your recipe into containers, put a small amount of salve on a teaspoon and put in the freezer for one minute to harden. Remove and check firmness. For a softer salve, add more oils, for a harder salve add more beeswax).

How to make an herb-infused oil

  1. Finely chop or powder your dried herb and add to the mason jar. Cover with the oil, and stir gently to distribute the herb throughout the oil.
  2. Put the cap on the mason jar, and place the jar in a water bath in either a crock pot or a stock pot on the stove (if using the stock pot method, place a mason jar lid ring under the jar with your oil in it so the glass is not directly on the metal of the pot).
  3. Gently heat the water and oil for 3–5 days, trying to keep the oil temperature around 110 degrees. The “warm” setting on a crock pot is ideal.
  4. After 3–5 days, remove the jar and let the oil cool slightly so it’s not too hot to the touch, and then strain your oil through muslin, cheesecloth, or an old and clean t-shirt to remove the dried herbs.
  5. Store your oil in an airtight jar in a dark, cool place. It will last for up to a year.

Pine Tree - An amazing source of food and medicine, worldwide!

How you can use pine medicine:

There are approximately 115 different species of pine worldwide—36 of which grow in North America. These evergreen and resinous coniferous trees (in the family Pinus, and the genus Pinaceae) are native to most of the Northern Hemisphere. But some pine species have flourished in the Southern Hemisphere too – like the cypress or kauri pines in Australia, for example. Find out which types of pine grow near you, and make sure they’re true pines. Provided that you’re not allergic, consider connecting with its healing properties.

Use the pitch. The sticky delicious-smelling sap has powerful antibacterial and antimicrobial properties. My O’odham friend Dennis often uses this as quick wilderness first aid for cuts, slivers, and burns. Try your hand at making your own healing salve below:

Pine Resin Healing Salve



  1. Heat oil in a double-boiler. As oil begins to simmer, add pine resin, and continue heating until the resin melts. Stir occasionally.
  2. Option: Strain mixture through a cheesecloth.
  3. Return mixture to double-boiler over low heat, and slowly stir in beeswax until melted. Pour mixture into jars or tins, and store in cool place.

You can use this salve on aching joints and sore muscles, shallow scrapes, and wounds, or on the chest for an aromatherapeutic agent.

Sacred Pine Needle Tea

Use the needles. Loaded with vitamin C—more than five times that of an orange—along with vitamins A, E, and a host of B vitamins, the needles are a cherished part of the pine. Pine needles have strong antimutagenic, antioxidant, and antiproliferative properties, which help in preventing the growth of cancer cells. Try making your own tea with the following recipe:


  1. Bring water to a boil.
    1. De-stem and remove the brown papery sheaths at the base of the needles.
  2. Chop needles into 1/2 inch pieces, to help release essence.
  3. Place 1 tbsp. of chopped needles into a mug and pour boiling water over top, allowing to steep for 5-10 minutes. Squeeze lemon into tea for flavor, or use as garnish.
Pine Pollen

Pine pollen has been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine for centuries. While P. massoniana is primarily used in China, a good body of evidence suggests we can gain similar benefits from P. sylvestris. Pine pollen is an adaptogen, supporting the body’s ability to navigate stress, balancing hormones, promoting better sleep and supporting the immune system. Pollen is primarily taken internally, but in China, the pollen is also applied to the face as a beauty treatment. Pine is known to be highly anti-inflammatory, so it seems logical that pine pollen is an important anti-aging option.

Pine Bark

Taking a patch of bark off a tree will cause serious damage, so try to harvest bark from branches that you need to prune. Strip off the outer bark and harvest the softer inner bark. This can be used immediately or dried for later use in tea or as a topical poultice. When boiled, the inner bark becomes mucilaginous and can be used internally for constipation or hemorrhoids. Externally, either the tea or the inner bark itself (well soaked and pounded) can be applied to sores, burns or hemorrhoids.


Additional Remedies

Nebulizing H2O2

I use 3% brown bottle H2O2 from the drugstore/walmart/where-ever. It works fine for me.

Dr Mercola Hydrogen Peroxide Nebulizer Protocol

His recipe is as follows:

Either formula will make H2O2 0.1% dilution.

How to use: Nebulize mixture for 5-10 minutes. Repeat every hour if currently sick.

Note: Drugstore brown bottle 3% works.

Nebulizing Baking Soda

If a person has a nebulizer, it can be done very easily. Nebulizer turns liquid medicine into a mist. First mix 100 ml of distilled water and 4.4 grams of baking soda by moderate heating. Then cool the liquid to room temperature. Transfer 10 ml of this liquid to nebulizer. Then turn on the nebulizer and inhale the mist.

This has to be done for 3 times in a day.

This treatment is similar to spraying baking soda solution at pH 8.4 to all cells in the air pathway of the breathing system.




Fungicide Spray

Mix and spray.

Miracle Grow

Mix and give each plant a quart once a month.

Urine Fertilizer

Tip: Use toilet paper roll insert (brown part) for seed starters.
