This is what we have done so far from your excellent inputs. The table is purposely duplicated completely for each entry, so it will stand alone, no matter how I sort it – by condition, remedy, supplier, info source, etc. When we go to press with anything, and any order, the duplication will be eliminated.

The main things left to do are the columns Kit Amounts and Remedy Specs. In Specs, we need the parameters for correct purchase of the oil or other product where the consumer can't easily order from you. For herbs, for instance, it might include: leaf, root, stem, all; dried, fresh, either; and botanical name.

If you'd like to change anything, print, modify, and fax to 1-888-446-5476 24/7. Any questions, please don't hesitate to call 1-888-7-HELP-24 - 99 cents per minute - first 5 minutes free - payable by PayPal.

Alternative: taking 1/2 teaspoon of Cascara segrada tincture and 1/2 teaspoon Fennel tincture in 2 tbsp warm juice or tea is a little more palatable than the tea. Increase bulk fibers and water in your diet.

Cough

A combination for a cough Syrup: Licorice

Plantain

Marshmallow

Sliipery Elm

Thyme

Coltsfoot

Sage

Wild Cherry

Horehound

Coughing can actually be beneficial – it's the body's way of clearing the airways so that you can breathe better. After a while, though, it irritates your throat. Coating your throat by drinking an herbal syrup reduces the irritation that makes you cough and also diminishes the pain. Marshmallow, Slippery Elm and Licorice soothe the throat, preventing inflammation and coughing. Plantain by itself represents a comprehensive cough remedy because it protects the mucous membranes, reduces the urge to cough, dissolves mucus, and inhibits bacterial growth and inflammation. Coltsfoot helps to dissolve and discharge phlegm and protects inflamed bronchials. Wild Cherry helps with a dry hacking cough Horehound acts as an expectorant to help bring up mucus in a wet cough.

This is more effective for the long term than individual herbs. Prepare this formula ahead of time. Simmer the following herbs in 12 ounces of water for 5 minutes and then steep them for 20 minutes longer: 1 tbsp each of Licorice root, Plantain leaf and Marshmallow root, 1 tsp each of Thyme leaves, Coltsfoot leaves and Sage leaves, and 1 tbsp each of Slippery Elm bark, Wild Cherry and Horehound; strain; add 2 ounces of honey and 4 ounces of vegetable glycerin while the tea water is still warm.

The cough syrup will keep for at least 3-4 weeks refrigerated. Adults and children over 2 can take 1 teaspoon to 1 tablespoon as needed. Do not give this syrup to babies (they cannot have honey). Coltsfoot should not be used for longer then two weeks.

Diarrhea

Meadowsweet

Agrimony

Red Raspberry

In most cases, diarrhea sets in when the body has to remove digestive poisons from its system and should not be suppressed. However, it can be useful to control the process and help the system with herbs that tone the lining of the intestine wall and which are mildly astringent.

Make a tea with any or all of herbs Meadowsweet, Agrimony or Red Raspberry leaf; place 3 tsp of dried herbs in 2 cups of boiling water. Steep for 15 minutes, strain and sip a cup every hour or until digestion is normal; sweeten with honey; can add ginger; drink lots of water (herbal teas are good for this). Two tablespoons of carob powder stirred into 1 cup of applesauce (pectin) or potato peel broth will help solidify stools.

Diarrhea in children under three can be serious – children dehydrate consult your healthcare practitioner if diarrhea lasts more than a day.

Notes

Acupressure

  • To find the appropriate point, read the description in the table below and look at the diagram below illustrating the location of the point, and then find the general area on your skin. Gently probe the area until you find that point which gives you a "funny bone" feeling or is sensitive, tender or sore. Then press hard enough to make the point hurt.
  • You can use a steady pressure or a five seconds on and five seconds off rotating pressure for the time you stimulate the point. Usually one minute is sufficient for each treatment session.
  • Regular, systematic treatment usually gets the best results because the effects of Acupressure are cumulative. At first, frequent treatment is recommended. Treatment three times daily for five to ten minutes may be necessary. Or treat more frequent, such as every two hours, until you start feeling relief. You cannot overdose.
  • Some report almost immediate results; others may need a few weeks to get lasting results. Acupressure is safe. Side effects are very rare. Treat while sitting down and do not administer after meals.
  • To find more conditions and points, as well as more information on how to get the best results, visit the Acu-Ki Institute website.
  • For the conditions listed above, you will find points that the experts agree help these conditions and that are easy to find. Sometimes you only need a few points to obtain results. The points follow:

GB 20 – just under the base of the skull in two small muscular grooves at the back of the neck

BG 21 – on top of the shoulder, 2"-3" from the side of the neck

GB 30 – near the "ball-joint" of the hips in the depression formed by squeezing the buttocks (relax before stimulating)

Li 4* – on the back of the hand between the thumb and index finger, in the center of the large bone on your finger – to be probed inward toward the main body of the hand, directly on the bone

Li 11 – on the extreme end of the outer crease of the elbow – bend arm tightly to find point (open arm and relax before stimulating)

SP 6* – on the front of the leg, just behind the shin bone – the width of one hand (three thumbs) above the crown of the inner ankle

St 36* – in the trough or valley just away from the most prominent shin bone, the width of one hand (three thumbs) below the bottom of the kneecap toward outside of leg the width of one thumb.

T 5 – on the forearm two thumb widths above the most prominent crease of the upper wrist, in line with the middle finger

UB 54 – at the rear of the knee, in the center of the crease between the two ligaments

UB 60 – in the hollow or valley behind the crown of the outer ankle

      *Pregnant women should avoid using Li 4, SP 6, and St 36.

      For more background on Acupressure, as well as a diagram showing the location of each of these points, see the full article [www.CompWellness.org/eJournal/archive.htm] in the Wellness eJournal.

Essential Oils
  • The top five essential oils in a first aid kit are:
    Lavender, Tea Tree, Peppermint, Roman Chamomile, and Eucalyptus. IIA
    • The next five essential oils in a first aid kit are:
      Geranium, Rosemary, Thyme, Clary Sage, and Lemon Grass. IIA
    • Essential oils can each be effective individually. IIA
    • For the emotional conditions listed, a weaker concentration is preferable. IIA
    • Use essential oils on Reflexology points as is possible. IIA
    • In buying essential oils, look for the botanical name and country of origin on the bottle. The label should say "100% pure essential oil" as opposed to "fragranced oil." True essential oils are bottled in amber bottles and will vary in price. IIA
    • Blending essential oils for synergism is most effective. (However, any of the single oils in the combinations listed are also effective.) For example in arthritis, use an anti-inflammatory, anti-spasmodic and analgesic essential oil for a well balanced blend. For menstrual cramping, choose an analgesic, anti-spasmodic and anti-inflammatory, and include those that are hormone related, such as Clary Sage and Fennel. IIA
    • Use the benefits of water temperature to heal. For example, ice to a sprain or strain in the first 24-48 hours after an injury to decrease the amount of swelling and provide local analgesia. Thereafter, heat can be used alternately with cold to increase circulation and alleviation of broken blood cells and lactic acid accumulation. Moist heat is best – use hot water bottle with warm moist towel. A cold pack can be an ice/gel pack, or a bag of frozen peas.
    Herbal Remedies
    • One tablespoon (tbs) dried = 3 teaspoons (tsp) = 9-12 grams. SF
    • One teaspoon tincture = 5 milliliter (ml) = 5 dropperfuls = 125 drops. JFH
    • Take all tinctures in a little warm water (about 2 inches in bottom of glass) to help absorption and to dilute the strong medicinal taste. JFH
    • Many common names overlap, so use the Botanical name. JFH
    • Just for Health Tinctures are made in Ethyl alcohol and distilled water. The cough syrup contains brandy. This assures a very concentrated medicinal solution that will not get moldy or go bad for many years at room temperature. If alcohol intake is not desired – it is minimal for each dose – squeeze the dropper dose into a little just- boiled water and let it stand for 20 minutes. Most of the alcohol will evaporate. (You will have less than in mouth wash.) If one may not ingest any alcohol at all, these tinctures should not be taken. Exceptions: The ear oil contains no alcohol. JFH
    • In serious situations, consult the nearest and best-qualified healthcare professional, as available. RMC
    • Herbal remedies can be used when there is acute or chronic illness, as a preventative tonic and a nutritive food supplement. They can be taken at the onset and duration of an illness to support and stimulate the healing process. RMC
    • Regarding the alcohol base. Many herbs are not water soluble and will only give up their medicinal properties to an alcohol base. To dissipate some of the alcohol in an extract, pour a dollop of boiling water over the extract and let sit for five minutes. The herb is stable in water and will not evaporate with the alcohol. RMC

    • Be careful not to touch the inner rim of the bottle or lid with your fingers to prevent contamination of the bottle and to prevent your fingers from absorbing the remedy. SM
    • Do not put pellets back into the remedy bottle if they should fall out onto the floor, your clothing or your fingers. If you think a remedy bottle has been canceled (polluted in this way), replace it. SM
    • The empty bottles should not be used for storage as remedy essence still remains. You may sterilize the bottles and lids in distilled water for 30 minutes, but it is better to recycle and invest in new bottles. SM
    • From observation, the remedies have worked even after allopathic (conventional) drug use, drinking coffee and using mint products. However, it is best to allow the remedies a clear field in which to work uninterrupted. The "lower potency" remedies are less susceptible to cancellations. SM
    • Do not eat or drink anything 15-30 minutes before or after taking a Homeopathic remedy. Drinking water before the remedy is acceptable. SM
    • Repeat a remedy that has worked for your problem in the past. SM
    • Don't leave a remedy that is working. You may need to increase the frequency or go to a higher potency of the same remedy. SM
    • Remedies may be taken dry, though better results are obtained when a remedy is put in distilled water with Everclear alcohol as a preservative (if available) and successed (shaken vigorously) between each dose. SM
    • For long-term storage, boil storage bottles in silver or glass pot with one part Everclear alcohol and three parts distilled water for 20 minutes. SM
    • Keep the remedy out of the sunlight and away from all strong odors. Perfumes, chemical fumes, nail polish, hair spray, tiger balm, aromatic toothpaste, menthol/mint, essential oils and burning agents such as incense, will cancel the remedy in the bottle. The average medicine cabinet is not the ideal storage area for remedies. Do not open the remedy bottle if you can smell any odors. SM
    • Avoid camphor and camphor products, tiger balm or deep heat liniments, mint products and essential oils. Any aromatic fumes – paint, ammonia, hair permanents, nail polish and remover, moth balls, etc. – can alter the remedy. SM
    • Magnetic/electrical fields – TV, X-ray, magnets – could alter the remedy in the bottle. SM
