This is a little more broadly based than home remedies, but a really good article.

Doing some online research re a stubborn skin spot not responding to tea tree oil, I came across this use of iodine for non-malignant skin things.

Skin Cancer - Natural Treatment Options

I bought a bottle of 2% iodine tincture at the drugstore, applied it numerous times to the spot yesterday, and it is already shrinking today.

I have ordered a bottle of the 7% solution, just to have on hand.

I recall when growing up, my RN mother keeping iodine in the medicine cabinet, and it being the go-to under a bandaid for cuts, scrapes, etc.

It sounds like an effective alternative others may be interested in, and I have learned over the years with my beloved chiropractor/homeopath that not all healing is medically induced.

It seems to be working on my spot, and the 2% solution is also available in clear, for use on the face without the discoloration.

Maggie; brings back memories of my old, old hospital days. The Dr's used a radio active form of Iodine (131) to treat cancers. By old, i mean before all the lawsuits and legalities and when Drs. treated the patient and NOT the government and Insurance companies. You might be on to something.

I think iodine is an ingredient in betadine, too, isn't it....what they swab surgical sites with beforehand?

Generally having common sense....mechanical things notwithstanding ....if the iodine doesn't do it, I will see a dermatologist.

The spot has already, visibly shrunk.

I am a longtime fan of tea tree oil, and keep it in my medicine cabinet at home, as well as in the Interstate.

Good for insect bites and other itchy things, also ringworm spots on grandchildren.

The clear, 2% iodine tincture, in a 2oz bottle at WalMart was about $3.

Altho I have ordered a bottle of the 7% solution, I suspect I will not need it to eradicate this particular spot.

About a week ago, I began treating the stubborn sore on my skin with the 2% iodine tincture, and it is almost completely healed up at this time.

After too long doing basically nothing, it has closed and healed from the inside, as a wound would and should do.

I suspect there will be a small scar, but that I can live with.

I have begun dabbing the iodine on several other little spots that have popped up with age , and they are also fading.

I'm very pleased, and have a new staple in my medicine cabinet.

I'm on a roll....what can I say?

Purchased shoe deodorizers not effective on my Reeboks-with-orthotic-inserts, I can launder the shoes but what to do with the inserts?

Voila! A few tablespoons of baking soda sprinkled liberally with tea tree oil, blended thoroughly with a tiny whisk and stored in an airtight container.

Sprinkle liberally over the (removed) insoles, let set for 24 hours, shake and brush off.

Can do the same thing inside shoes, the tea tree oil kills odor causing bacteria, and both items serve to deodorize.

Odor.... gone.

As a telephone triage nurse for Adolescent Clinic prior to retirement, I would get calls from teens with vague complaints of one thing or another that lasted a minute or so and happened once every few weeks - mostly they wanted to talk to someone I think- Assessment: I told them often it proved they were alive! They accepted that and called to chat when they had other problems- the physician I worked for loved my assessment and I heard her use it as well on several occaisions. Listening can be powerful medicine....

That's a good thing for us all to be reminded of, FG.

Thanks.

Paddledipper been using soap under fitted sheets for a number of years. I get leg cramps in the quads and hamstrings, sometimes the same time and it doubles me over. Since going to soap, only occasionally and then rubbing soap on the spot stops it.

Also, Apple Cider Vinegar after night time meal virtually has eliminated acid reflux. Doc says no way, then he says but if it works don't stop.

Also, my post #75, Chiropractor was right about my herniated discs and fractured back. Fracture is healed, and very little pain from herniated discs - 10 months after injury. Nice part, no operation, just exercises and time.

It's amazing what love can heal. I get a very good vibe from this forum. I've seen people get emotionally healed from the positive support of this forum...very powerful. Were all treated like family....that's a good thing Pets have healing powers that words can't even describe. I like call ourselves pet guardians not owners....we all know they own us.

I hadn't heard about the bar of soap in the bed, but I've found that keeping enough calcium in the diet does wonders for leg cramps. My husband had some bad ones occasionally, and that worked for him.

Sorry this tip doesn't involve rum or bourbon. For a canker sore in your mouth, put a little bit of powdered alum on it (you'll find alum in the spice rack at many grocery stores). It's really bitter but it dries out the canker sore almost overnight. Once it's healed, enjoy a rum and coke. Wow, I was wrong. This tip does involve rum. And, I suppose it would work with bourbon too.

Does anyone have a water ionizer? I've stumbled across this concept in raising your body's PH level to cure cancer, and other ailments. The machine also gives the treated water huge anti-oxidant levels, also bad for cancer. Kinda pricy around 2k, but cheap considering health benefits. I'm looking at the Athena h2 model which is the best performer on the Youtube. Humor me, and check your drinking water PH level. Look into this concept, it may save your life.
