Calf Cramps

For cramps in your calf muscles, stand flat footed, shoeless, facing a wall at arm's length. Lean forward using your arms for support until your face touches the wall (keep those feet flat on the floor). Do this 10 times, and do three sets a week and those calf cramps will disappear in short order.

The reason I went ahead and tried this is I had talked to a girl that's 93 year old grandmother had been using it for pain for over 30 years with no side effects.....hey ...thats a longer test than most meds get before they are released for us to use.

HERE IS THE CLINCHER! I tried it on ear mites and it worked! My little dog got ear mites in one ear from the neighbors kittens on one of her visits.

I felt so bad for her, it was Sunday and the Vet was closed. I thought I would spray some WD40 in her ear and rub it in real well. I did it then cleaned her ear out, sprayed it in again then gave her a bath. Since WD stands for "water displacement" i figured it would keep the water from her ear drum.
Long story longer....about 20 min. after the bath she stopped shaking her head and scratching her ear....It's been over 48 hours and not one ear itch.....
I now call WD...Wax Displacement!

Jellyfish sting _ Use meat tenderizer to neutralize the toxin

Bee/Wasp sting - the aforementioned spit and tobacco (any variety works not just pipe tobacco)

Water trapped in ear - a few drops of rubbing alcohol in the ear will let it drain, also works for other ear problems

Arthritis pain - Sounds crazy I know, but let a bee sting the affected area, it really works

Hangover - Learned this trick while I was in the Army, after a long night of drinking, drink a quart of Gatorade before going to bed and another after waking up. A hangover is simply dehydration from the alcohol.

Mouth ulcers (canker sores) - flush the area with Listerine. Burns like hell, but kills the bacteria in the sore and it will go away much more quickly

Sunburn pain - bath the area in vinegar (Makes you smell funky, but makes the sting go away)
