What's in my first aid kit...

When I first began on this journey of understanding and education I found out that there are some really great NATURAL remedies that can help in everyday life.  I wish I had known of these earlier, and am greatful to share them with you now.  These NATURAL remedies should not replace the times for emergency care and if you feel you need medical attention you should absolutely investigate your options.

1)  Tea Tree Oil -

Tea tree has a long history of traditional use. Australian aboriginals used tea tree leaves for healing skin cuts, burns, and infections by crushing the leaves and applying them to the affected area. 

Tea tree oil contains consituents called terpenoids, which have been found to have antiseptic and antifungal activity. The compound terpinen-4-ol is the most abundant and is thought to be responsible for most of tea tree oil's antimicrobial activity.

People use tea tree oil for the following conditions:
Athlete's foot
Periodontal disease
As an antiseptic
Yeast infection 

Sources of Tea Tree Oil

Tea tree oil is most commonly found as a pure essential oil. It is also an ingredient in creams, ointments, lotions, soaps, and shampoos.

Tea tree oil should not be confused with Chinese tea oil, cajeput oil, kanuka oil, manuka oil, ti tree oil, and niauouli oil.

2) Activated Charcoal

Activated Charcoal is another item no first aid kit should be without. it is wonderful to have on hand for your animals in case they ever get hold of something poison, but also keep it on hand for me.

Healthcare professionals utilize the special properties of activated charcoal to address:
  • Elimination of toxins that can contribute to anemia in cancer patients.
  • Filtering of toxins from blood, in cases of liver or kidney disease.
  • Effective deodorizing and disinfectant for wounds.

Activated Charcoal can also help cut down on the odors some lleostomy and colostomy patients deal with, purify the blood, treat overdoses of aspirin, and treat some forms of dysentery, diarrhea, dyspepsia, etc. as well as to absorb toxic substances such as aconite, amitriptyline hydrochloride, amphetamine, arsenic, barbiturates, Ben-Gay, camphor, chlordane, chlorpromazine, cocaine, darvon, diazepam, digitalis, doxepin, elavil, gasoline, kerosene, penicillin, pesticides, radioactive substances and many, many more toxic substances. Activated charcoal is also excellent for simple indigestion.

Some instances where charcoal might be good to have around, certainly not as a substitute for needed medical attention but as something that could help until you can get to the doctor:
  • food poisoning
  • accidental ingestion of poisons
  • poisonous spider
  • snake or bug bites

3) Colloidal Silver

Colloidal silver has shown in various studies to be able to kill over 650 micro-organisms.  Please be aware, that this does not mean that taking colloidal silver will cure diseases that can be caused by such germs - the human body is a very complex system which works within a number of different environments and systems.

Nonetheless, it has been reported to be effective in fighting against: acne, AIDS, allergies, arthritis, athletes foot, boils, burns, candida, cystitis, diabetes, eczema, hay fever, indigestion, parasitic infections, psoriasis, ringworm, warts and yeast infections.

It can be used either orally or topically. When taken orally you can either place droplets directly under the tongue or it can be put into water and drunk. Silver is often used topically by spraying onto cuts, burns, skin infections or acne.
