be prepared – some more steps

I often think about how I can be better prepared at home

A previous post has some earlier ideas on being prepared

Being prepared means taking responsibility and having simple ingredients on hand that can help treat sickness, injuries and accidents

 These can at least provide first aid relief and at most prevent a situation becoming more complicated

 More important than all is to maintain a balance in all areas of your life, for it is when we are unbalanced that we are prone to illness, accidents and injury

Epsom salts

Epsom salts is an inexpensive yet effective home remedy

Soak in an epsom salt bath for the relief of muscle pain or injury, for tense muscles or simply as a relaxing bath for both adults and children

Epsom salts leeches excess sodium, phosphorous, and nitrogenous wastes from the body through the skin

 It can restore and balance subtle electrical energies in the body and help restore equilibrium

Add two cups per bath

Epsom salts can be purchased at the produce store by the kilo often at a much more reasonable price than the supermarket

Olive leaf extract

Olive leaf is a gentle herb for both adults and children

It is good to have olive leaf on hand so that any infections can be halted before they may become chronic

While olive leaf is a valuable tool it is of vital importance that you are consuming a wholesome diet so that you are receiving all the nutrients required for the maintenance of good health

Olive leaf helps the body fight infections caused by bacteria, viruses, fungi, and parasites making it useful for conditions such as colds, flu, chest infections, thrush, thread worms and fungal infections

Take as directed on the bottle

When preparing a first aid kit at home always have on hand clean, cotton cloth, cotton wool, bandages, scissors, leukopore low allergenic tape, an eye bath, and pins for securing bandages
