Don’t Sneeze on Me!!! Cheap College Healthcare

January 15, 2009

Entering college is a fun and exciting rite of passage and new chapter in life. However, my adventurous college experience would be marred if I didn’t have one essential item: a home remedy pack with garlic and 100% tea tree oil. That’s right, some good ole’ home remedies and naturopathic know-how. Your school may bombard you with Sudafed or the very popular NyQuil and DayQuil or other pharmaceuticals to keep you hopped up and going to class day after day, but once you find out the utter uselessness of those man-made products and the expense once you get hooked on them, then you will be glad you know how to support your body into healing itself. Naturopathy has been around for way over a hundred years, its a branch of the medical field where only natural materials and formulas are used to heal or treat patients from the common cold, to anxiety or cancer. For many, college is the first time away from home and the first time living with roommates. Many people will be taking care of themselves for the first time. This is why I encourage ALL college students to take a garlic when they are sick and use tea tree oil for topical dermatological care. Garlic is like bleach for your body, seriously. If you have a bacterial or fungal illness garlic will help. If you have food poisoning, garlic will help. You should take 2 cloves (that a little wedge like segment, not to be confused with a head of garlic, thats the whole bulb) of garlic, diced into pill size, don’t chew them, swallow the diced piece whole with a large cup of orange juice. Do this 3 times a day until you are better for at least 48 hours. If you have a skin condition that is fungal, or acne, or itchiness, or even sensitive skin, tea tree oil can help. It can soothe and disinfect. Its also a good idea to keep hydrogen peroxide on hand, it’s great for gargling with! Don’t just take my word for it, make sure you do some research via internet or your school library to see the use and benefits of this items. You will find they are way more cost effective then visiting the pharmacy all the time and better for your body in the long haul.
