I’ve been offline with computer problems–apparently a karmic issue for me. :) And, there’s a bug going around that came alive inside me day before yesterday. I began looking for natural remedies and came across one that said: Chop up a clove of garlic, add it to a tablespoon of honey and partake. (I wasn’t feeling well, so I didn’t care how awful it sounded.) It actually tasted a little like an apple to me AND it did the job. I took another dose today, just in case. Nice find, if I do say so myself.
And, if you have a tooth cavity that hurts, cut a clove of garlic into fourths and put a piece on top of the ailing tooth. Hold it there as long as you can. It doesn’t work instantly, but after an hour or two, the toothache is completely gone! At least, that’s how it worked for me. And it lasted for weeks, which is more than enough time to get to a dentist.
