An Udderly Ridiculous Home Remedy

by Doug Smith

Home Remedies - Facts or Quacks?That’s what I recently asked myself. Myths and legends often have their basis in a grain of truth. So I wondered if home remedies, alternative treatments, and folklore cures might also be based on truth. A little research provided these astounding results!Itching For A CureEdward Jenner is widely credited as the father of the smallpox vaccination. However, twenty years earlier in 1774, a quick-thinking English farmer named Benjamin Jesty saved his family from smallpox using some pretty unorthodox methods.Waiting Until The Cows Come HomeIn 1774 the highly infectious and deadly smallpox disease was epidemic. Farmer Jesty, immune to the disease because he had survived it in childhood, feared for the lives of his pregnant wife and children. Many country folk knew that people who had previously caught the milder disease of cowpox from an infected cow did not catch the normally-fatal smallpox disease.A Desperate PlanFrantic to find a solution before his family caught the disease, Jesty took his family to a nearby farm where cows were infected with cowpox. He injected his family with diseased cowpox cells from the cows. Because vacca is Latin for cow, this procedure later became known as vaccination.This Isn’t BullThe mild cowpox disease came and went in the children. His pregnant wife had complications and required the aid of the local doctor. His family did not catch the deadly smallpox disease, but word leaked out. Poor Jesty was ridiculed by his neighbors, who expected his family to turn into cows, or at least grow horns!Edward Jenner was a tireless crusader in promoting the benefits of smallpox vaccination. However, it was a desperate farmer who used his quick wit and country folklore to save his family 20 years earlier.Regardless of whom history credits, this home remedy definitely rates as a fact rather than a quack!Learn more about home remedies through the resources listed below.

Breast Augmentation With Herbs

by Anna Woodward

There are many different options for ways to make the chest look better. For many, that means going to a surgeon and having them implant silicone or sometimes saline inserts to increase the volume and shape of the chest. Other women purchase special undergarments that pad, lift and shape to improve the bust line. However, there is another option that few ladies try and that is no farther than the local grocery store. There are a number of homeopathic and herbal ways to naturally stimulate the body and increase the size of the chest. In fact three simple spices are used abundantly and have been for hundreds of years to achieve natural breast augmentation
There is strong anecdotal evidence dating back to the ancient Greeks that licorice is able to aid in breast augmentation. It contains a chemical called phytoestrogen that works like a hormone in a woman's body, increases the size of the chest, and stimulates milk production. This does not mean that a person should go out and buy a bunch of black licorice candy. The kind you can find in a store is made from synthetic esters and is not the same. Instead, try buying licorice oil and add it to a cup of tea or in baking. This will give a healthy dose of the phytoestrogen and improve the flavor of foods.
A similar herb called fennel is related to the licorice plant. This Mediterranean herb is used extensively in cooking and also contains the chemical phytoestrogen. Of course the information is purely anecdotal and the FDA has not approved it but many have relied on this herb when they have looked to get a natural and safe breast augmentation.
The final herb used is called fenugreek. It does not work the same way as licorice or fennel but the traditional wisdom about this plant has it being even more effective than the previous two. For natural breast augmentation this herb is used all around the world. It is an incredibly effective homeopathic treatment for increasing milk production in lactating women and is used to great effect. There is one thing that must be mentioned before beginning a regimen of fenugreek. It has the unusual side effect of making the sweat and odor of a person smell like maple syrup. Often the urine will also smell like maple syrup. This effect is increased depending on the amount that a person takes so be sure that if this is the option you choose that you slowly up the dose until you know what the olfactory side effects will be.
All of these can be either taken as a supplement or used in cooking. Fennel is great on chicken and other savory dishes. Licorice oil can be added to drinks or confections and give them a strong herbal flavor. Fenugreek is used in a lot of Indian food and can be used when pickling. It can also be cooked and eaten alone as a sort of bitter herb. Regardless or how it is chosen to be ingested these herbs may be great holistic answers to breast augmentation.
