Title: Natural Remedies for Health Problems and Increased Longevity
Post by: Maxx on January 05, 2015, 08:29:11 AM


I thought we should have a thread on health tips.

My strong recommendation is coconut oil. It has strong anti-bacteriological properties. It is great GREAT! as a deodorant. It keeps you smelling fresh during those long plane and train trips.  ;D  From personal use I give it 5 stars  :party0031: :party0031: :party0031: :party0031: :party0031: Try it. http://wellnessmama.com/5734/101-uses-for-coconut-oil/

DO NOT exceed the stated maximum Viagra dose - a 96 hour erection becomes quite wearing especially due to the Cowper Gland doing it's job and preventing urination whist erect. Nature's way of stopping you weeing in the woman (and/or man and/or anus if so inclined).

The dark pleasures of the tradesman's entrance have never offered succur for me, but I have been reliably informed you are not a real man without having had a bit brown on your sword.....

Got it!  :thumbsup:

ETA: 2 things i am hooked on as of lately:

1. home made kefir

2. bone broth

I take мумиё when i find it, best one, pure from Altay, is in deficit even in Moscow, what they sell in pharmacies is mostly made in India.
It's rumored on men it has similar effect as Viagra, that i wouldn't know, but if dissolved in little water, then mixed into some hydrating cream and applied to skin it's awesome (beside internal use that is.)

The only thing Nadia really misses from home is Ryazhenka, like fermented milk - can't get it here, we found Maslanka in the Polish shop, which has supposed to be the Polish version, that was disgusting, just sour (i.e. off) milk, stank bad and tasted rank. I really don't know how they drink it without vomiting, I was literally heaving.....

Lol, i love it to  ;D

Look, the process is the same as with kefir, but ryazhenka is from so-called baked milk (boiled in oven overnight.)

I could send you kефирный гриб/ kefir grain from here, if you have someone to pick it up at Heathrow  and fetch it to you (mail takes too long) or you could get them from Amazon: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Live-Kefir-Grains-kefir-drink/dp/B00HBWYXY4/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1420477412&sr=8-1&keywords=organic+kefir+grains

It's the best natural antibiotic i know of, among other benefits   :)

I use olive oil for cooking eggs. It is supposed to nullify the negatives of the cholesterol in eggs.

Yesterday I tried coconut oil for the first time as a deodorant. After 24 hours I still didn't stink. I smelled the same as I did after my shower the day before. I've tried regular deodorants and they do not come close to coconut oil in this use. You only need a teaspoon to for the deodorant and as a face and hands skin cream.

I'll make sure I bring a lot of it with me when I move to Georgia.

Definitely! Also, i am not sure of the quality of this one which is sold here, only one health store sells it and only a single brand  :biggrin:

Only supplement I take is, immune booster, must work had 2 short colds last 4 years.
Eat right, I cook most things with olive oil, instead of butter or other items.
Eat little junk, but as always balance, healthy sex life, decent sleep when possible.
And fitness & sports, don't need viagra yet, never tried coconut oil for anything.
At least a couple of hobbies that make you smile often, like sex good for mind, body & soul.

I agree about the virtues of coconut oil. I remember a week with a lovely girl in North Carolina when I applied coconut oil to her golden skin. I've read that professional photographers use it for the glow it provides.

You can get it at any Indian market. Look for it in the big blue plastic bottles.

That would be bleach in ASDA/Walmart Larry - think you should issue one of those hugely long warnings said really quickly with no intonation whatsoever (any infection would possibly render an opinion).

Otherwise Nadia could use bleach instead of coconut oil on my sexy butt and burn the skin off. You wouldn't want that on your conscience would you?

May I ask, how do you make homemade Kefir?

It's really easy! Once have your grains, you place them in a jar, pour milk over them and let them sit from 12-24h (depending on temperature and also of the consistency you want.) If you'd like more details, i can post youtube videos in Russian, from which i learned (will translate them for you, if needed, no probs), but i this one is good to start with:


(Russian ones have excellent tips on how to keep the grains healthy, that i didn't find in English.)

I would not indeed want that on my conscience. Everyone should take care to apply to the skin only healthful coconut oil.

This was one of the items my wife also missed. We finally found a Russian store about 45 minutes away that carries it.

You can get it at any Indian market. Look for it in the big blue plastic bottles.

You can also get it by climbing up a ladder.   :hidechair:
I have about thirty in the front yard waiting to be taken away.

Wife and many of the local FSU women are very much into natural remedies. I won't flood the forum but a few we incorporate into our lives are papayas and red rice yeast. Papayas are one of the healthiest foods out there and having some for breakfast or adding to a shake or smoothie provides these benefits. Red yeast rice lowers cholesterol naturally. I take several per day to keep mine in check.

Red yeast rice is a natural supplement used to lower cholesterol. I take two 600mg pills each day and it has helped reduced my LDL (bad cholesterol) levels. I also take fish oil capsules daily which supposedly helps as well. Some good info on studies can be found on the link below.

Thanks, Sasha! Last check up, my GP said all was good, but "bordering cholesterol"  :hidechair: He recommended me some kind of lower carb/ lower fat diet, but i am anyway on much stricter diet that that (it's those printed materials they hand out, there was like no pork, no white sugar, no white bread... i do not consume any of those anyway  :( )

1. home made kefir

Kefir is supposedly very good for weight loss and your digestive system. As an American it initially took me took a bit of getting used to the thought (and consistency) of drinking spoiled dairy so I would add it to whey protein shakes or purchase a fruit flavored variety.

I love it! AND the home made one has even stronger/ sharper taste than the industrial one, but i am used to it, i love what it does to my taste buds  ;D

What I find beneficial and there is much research to back it up are 2000 to 4000 IU (whatever it takes to get your levels between 40-60 ng) of vitamin D, 200 mcg of vitamin K2 (very low in American diet, keeps the calcium in your bones and not in your arteries), and Astaxanthin, which is a carotanoid similar to beta-carotene, lycopene, etc, from salmon and the algae they eat. Also, eating a high magnesium diet or getting it from spraying magnesium chloride on your skin.
