There’s nothing quite like a tooth ache. If you’ve got an infection in the gum around a tooth and bacteria is causing you a great deal of pain, give garlic a try before rushing off to the dentist and incurring a huge dentist bill.
Here’s what you should do:
Take a clove of garlic and crush it up, mixing it into a paste with a pinch of salt. I like to use my mortar and pestle for this. Then, just rub this paste into the gums and around the affected tooth.
Cold sores can be an unwelcome but common occurrence for many people.
Here are some natural home remedies that have been known to either reduce the pain associated with cold sores or help with the healing process.
1) If a cold sore is particularly painful, use a piece of ice to numb the affected area.
2) Aloe Vera gel is also a great way to reduce the pain associated with cold sores.
3) Dab the area with tea tree oil once in the morning and once at night. I always use tea tree when I get a cold sore because of its wonderful antiseptic properties and its ability to promote healing.
4) Pop a used green tea bag in the freezer and use it to ice the affected area. The frozen tea bag obviously has the same numbing affect as ice but the green tea is also a natural antiseptic.
I tried making my own soap, but the ingredients + molds + time turned out to be very costly! So I did lots of research and the best way to save is as follows:
Buy basic bar soap like DIAL = 36 bars can cost as little as $12 from dollar stores
Buy hand soap in 56 oz. refill sizes = should be about $5
First, I can walk there. Second, I can use my computer to get reward credits by logging a walk, a blood pressure reading, a blood sugar reading, and a weigh in. And lastly, I use this site to get maximium savings with the shortest amount of research.
The deadline is March 31st. But you don't have to go into the system!
General Insurance Coverage:
Join a health care sharing ministry. These are voluntary, charitable membership organizations that agree to share medical bills among the membership. Samaritan Ministries, Christian Healthcare Ministries, and Christian Care Ministry. They operate entirely outside of Obamacare’s regulations, and typically offer benefits for about half the cost of similar health insurance. Members are also exempt from having to pay the tax for being uninsured.
Critical Illness Coverage:
Acts like an insurance policy if you have kidney failure, heart attack, stroke, etc. I'd get the highest benefit amount possible.http://www.ehealthinsurance.com/critical-illness-insurance
You should max out your medical and uninsured/underinsured driver coverage amounts
under your auto insurance policy, which can pay medical bills if you are hurt in a car accident.
