had a massive verruca on my foot, since 2002. Well, actually two
close together so technically I should say verrucae . ...
year I decided enough was enough. I'd tried the lotions and potions
and nothing was helping and I didn't fancy the cutting out or burning
off.... sounds painful... ouch !!!.
remembered when I was a young girl......that Bazuka used to sell
a little pot of pink cream that used to sort them out within no
time, but the gel they make now proved to be useless. It just made
a hard crust on the top but didn't sink in to kill the thing! Well
that's what it seemed like to me.
I did some research, seems like what kills them is something called
salicylic acid. More research showed me that was basically aspirin.
So I crushed up 10 aspirin into powder and mixed it into some E45
cream in a little pot. I put it on my verrucae every night for about
six weeks. Guess what it worked!!! The whole thing came off and
I just spent another week applying the cream just in case. That
was a few years ago and its never come back.
you have a verruca and want to try it make sure that you only apply
it to the verruca and not to surrounding skin if possible.
Functions of Salt in the Body
1. Salt is most effective in stabilizing irregular heartbeats and,
contrary to the misconception that it causes high blood pressure,
it is actually essential for the regulation of blood pressure -
in conjunction with water. Naturally the proportions are critical.
2. Salt is vital to the extraction
of excess acidity from the cells in the body, particularly the brain
3. Salt is vital for balancing
the sugar levels in the blood; a needed element in diabetics.
4. Salt is vital for the generation
of hydroelectric energy in cells in the body. It is used for local
power generation at the sites of energy need by the cells.
5. Salt is vital to the nerve
cells' communication and information processing all the time that
the brain cells work, from the moment of conception to death.
6. Salt is vital for absorption
of food particles through the intestinal tract.
7. Salt is vital for the clearance
of the lungs of mucus plugs and sticky phlegm, particularly in asthma
and cystic fibrosis.
8. Salt is vital for clearing
up catarrh and congestion of the sinuses.
9. Salt is a strong natural
10. Salt is essential for
the prevention of muscle cramps.
11. Salt is vital to prevent
excess saliva production to the point that it flows out of the mouth
during sleep. Needing to constantly mop up excess saliva indicates
12. Salt is absolutely vital
to making the structure of bones firm. Osteoporosis, in a major
way, is a result of salt and water shortage in the body.
13. Salt is vital for sleep
regulation. It is a natural hypnotic.
14. Salt is a vitally needed
element in the treatment of diabetics.
15. Salt on the tongue will
stop persistent dry coughs.
16. Salt is vital for the
prevention of gout and gouty arthritis.
17. Salt is vital for maintaining
sexuality and libido.
18. Salt is vital for preventing
varicose veins and spider veins on the legs and thighs.
19. Salt is vital to the communication
and information processing nerve cells the entire time that the
brain cells work - from the moment of conception to death.
20. Salt is vital for reducing
a double chin. When the body is short of salt, it means the body
really is short of water. The salivary glands sense the salt shortage
and are obliged to produce more saliva to lubricate the act of chewing
and swallowing and also to supply the stomach with water that it
needs for breaking down foods. Circulation to the salivary glands
increases and the blood vessels become "leaky" in order
to supply the glands with water to manufacture saliva. The "leakiness"
spills beyond the area of the glands themselves, causing increased
bulk under the skin of the chin, the cheeks and into the neck.
21. Sea salt contains about
80 mineral elements that the body needs. Some of these elements
are needed in trace amounts. Unrefined sea salt is a better choice
of salt than other types of salt on the market. Ordinary table salt
that is bought in the super markets has been stripped of its companion
elements and contains additive elements such as aluminum silicate
to keep it powdery and porous. Aluminum is a very toxic element
in our nervous system. It is implicated as one of the primary causes
of Alzheimer's disease.
22. Twenty-seven percent of
the body's salt is in the bones. Osteoporosis results when the body
needs more salt and takes it from the body. Bones are twenty-two
percent water. Is it not obvious what happens to the bones when
we're deficient in salt or water or both.
Some History of Salt
Dr. Langre mentions in his book that, "The Belgian historian
Henri Pirenne observed that during the High Middle ages, the entire
coast of the Atlantic was deserted and the entire continent was
thrown into a Dark Age of human under-development. Historians tell
us that it was caused to a great extent by the lack of salt in the
human diet, the flooding of all salt flats having disabled every
salt farm along the coastlines of the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean
Sea. The whole of Europe, therefore, suffered from a salt famine
that was to last almost 500 years. The daily average ration fell
to less than 2 grams per person and caused many to die from dehydration
and madness. The extent of the salt famine reported by Henri Pirenne
caused human flesh to be sold on the open-air markets and created
an epidemic of crazed people who, to replenish their salt, drank
blood from the neck artery of the person they had just slain. Quick
to exploit this desperate situation for their own gain, the rulers
of Europe grabbed the remnants of the salt stock and exacted exorbitant
salt taxes. Heavily burdened by tariffs and gabelles, common salt
became a luxury but also caused mass population shifts and exodus,
lured invaders and caused wars. Mined salt from the depths of the
earth was substituted, but the lack of live and balanced trace elements
in rock salt lowered the mental equilibrium and intellect level
almost as much as the sheer absence of salt."

decided to seek the wisdom of God when I had a double problem....
I had a peristant rash for a few years that caused my legs to bleed
because of the constant itching. This spread to my stomach and caused
unsightly blotches and a massive rash. My other problem was that
I would have very large severe bruises, appearing for no apparent
reason on other parts of my body. (a sign of hardening of the arteries)...........
started to become concerned about this, so on the basis of God's
promise in James 1.5....If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of
God, that giveth to all men, I got on my face and asked the Father
for a solution that would combat both problems. In my 'knower' I
heard the word "tea" and then "rosehip". Out
of curiosity, I looked up the benefits of rosehip on the internet.
Apparently, rosehips have a substance called rutin and a vast amount
of Vitamin C, much more even than oranges. This is the type of information
research reveals rutin may strengthen veins and arteries and lower
rutin has been used to treat swollen legs, circulation problems
and varicose veins. It works by nourishing and strengthening your
small arteries and veins under the skin (J Mal Vasc 1998;23(3):176-82).
This also reduces the risk of easy bruising, which is a common characteristic
of thin and fragile skin. Rutin works together with vitamin C, and
this combination is believed to be very effective against easy bruising,
thin skin and unsightly veins in the legs or thighs."
after three weeks of drinking rosehip tea my rash had cleared and
the bruising stopped. I drink it now on a regular basis as the very
high dose of vitamin C you obtain from the tea is so much cheaper
than buying vitamin C in tablet form. It also boosts the immune
can only usually buy Rosehip tea (with hibiscus flowers added) from
a Health Food Shop although Sainsburys do sell it. It has a distinctive
pleasant taste, unlike most herbal teas that seem so insipid to
me. Some people like to add sugar, honey or maple syrup.
