here are a few WONDERFUL natural makeup companies that give a great natural alternative to the normal toxic stuff.

~ Cowgirl Dirt (personal favorite)

oh, something else that is supposed to work well, but I haven't personally tried, is oil pulling. In other words, swishing for 10-20 minutes with an oil, like coconut or sesame oil.

Ok, here's what i do for my teeth - I brush with my favorite toothpaste ( first (after flossing of course), then after rinsing well, with my finger I spread some activated charcoal all over the front of my teeth. I let that sit while I wash my face, etc. before bed. Then rinse well, and brush lightly afterword with baking soda. It works very well!

I would recommend the YouTube channel called "The Makeup Chair". She isn't a christian, but she has many very informative and very basic tutorials. There are quite a few natural look tutorials as well.

I took and old mascara tube, washed it out well, and filled it with a mix of olive oil and vitamin E oil (I used about 2-4 softgel pills). I brush it onto my top and bottom eyelashes every night before bed, and I've seen a GREAT improvement. I've always had good eyelashes, but even so, I've been able to tell a difference.

I am also very interested in information about naturally caring for someone with measles. Perhaps there is a grandmother out there who's own children had them all those years ago?

We stopped vaccinating years ago and are constantly told that our children are "behind in their vaccinations" (military hospitals). Now, with outbreaks on the rise of measles, (weren't these folks vaccinated?) ;^}  anyone have tips on healing from measles besides boosting the immune system?
Thank you
Hormones & Endocrine / Seizures and Thyroid function
« Last post by kylesgirl on January 15, 2015, 09:27:58 AM »
I have been struggling with seizures for the past five years. I am 25 now, married and getting ready to start having children. I have not had a seizure in a whole year, and sadly experienced one this morning.
While talking to a friend, I started thinking about how my thyroid function could be causing these episodes. My diet is extremely strict and I have been a vegan for a couple years now. There are things that make my think my thyroid isn't functioning properly and I haven't really thought about it till now.

I tire very easily, and rarely stay up late. The last time I stayed up past midnight, I wound up almost having a seizure, but thankfully was able to prevent it. I get extremely hungry if I don't eat every few hours, and really grumpy if my meals are delayed. I gain weight easily, even with my incredible diet, which seems odd to me. MY mother also has troubles with her thyroid, so I'm very keen on figuring out if helping this will help my epilepsy problems.

So any suggestions on healing my thyroid, boosting its function, and figuring out if this will help me....would be greatly appreciated!
Colds, Flus & Viruses / 3 Year Old With Pneumonia
« Last post by countrygirl-4ever on December 19, 2014, 05:35:12 PM »
My 3 year old son is battling pneumonia. He had a bad cough for about two days. That has lessened, Thank God. He is still running a bit of fever, diarrhea, and wheezing when he breathes. Tonight I have a Amish Pneumonia Salve on his chest, doterra frankincense and lemon on his back, OnGuard, Breathe and Thyme on his feet, as well as an onion garlic poultice which I'm leaving on all night. I will also run Breathe in the diffuser tonight.

Wondering if any other mothers out there have experienced a child with pneumonia and treated it at home? If so what worked for you? It sure isn't fun seeing a LO feeling a bit low! :'(
