00:01 Disease is a word that actually defines itself.
00:05 "Dis and ease".. you put those 2 phrases together and you have
00:10 "disease" or the lack of ease.
00:14 Another way to define disease is an effort of nature
00:19 to rid herself of the conditions that have resulted
00:22 from broken health law.
00:24 We'll be talking about some of these laws...
00:26 and what you can do to help your body to rid itself of these
00:31 conditions during this program.
00:33 We hope you will join us for it.
00:54 Welcome to "Help Yourself to Health"
00:56 with Dr. Agatha Thrash of Uchee Pines Institute
01:00 And now, here's your host, Dr. Thrash
01:04 We don't always know what laws we have broken when we
01:08 have a disease.
01:09 Sometimes, we do but much of the time,
01:12 we just don't know.
01:14 We think we may have broken some law, and as we
01:19 think about our program, we can sometimes pinpoint
01:23 ..."Yes, here is where I've made a mistake"
01:26 and that led to a disease. "
01:29 I know a woman who had a little girl who was probably about
01:34 2 or 2-1/2, and when she was just
01:39 going into the hospital for the birth of her second child,
01:42 the little girl had some swollen gums and they looked
01:46 a little spongy and uncomfortable,
01:49 but she still had a good appetite
01:51 and everything seemed to be all right.
01:53 So, the new baby was born and the mother brought
01:56 the baby home, and looked at her little daughter
01:59 and her gums were now bleeding.
02:03 Not only that, she had some swollen lymph nodes.
02:06 Well, she had heard somewhere back in her ancient past
02:10 that bleeding gums and swollen lymph nodes
02:14 meant leukemia.
02:16 So immediately she thought, "My child has leukemia. "
02:19 So she could hardly get in the house.
02:22 She sent her husband with the little girl
02:25 to the pediatrician's office and the diagnosis was
02:29 brought back... "infectious lymphadenitis"
02:32 Ahh... we can draw a deep breath on that one!
02:35 We didn't have a real serious problem.
02:38 What a joy! What a privilege!
02:40 What a relief that is!
02:42 So in this instance, they checked back to see if
02:47 they could determine what it might be that had caused
02:50 the little girl to have a weakening of her immune system
02:54 that caused the infectious lymphadenitis.
02:56 A few hot baths and some hot packs to her throat
03:00 and the entire neck abolished the infectious lymphadenitis
03:05 and she was perfectly fine.
03:07 But when they checked back in her recent history,
03:10 they remembered that about 3 or 4 days before
03:14 the new baby was born, this older child had gone
03:20 to a little birthday party for another child,
03:24 and she had eaten some things
03:25 that ordinarily, she didn't eat at home...
03:27 And apparently that weakened the immune system
03:29 enough so that she was not able to hold the fences high
03:36 on the problem with infectious lymphadenitis.
03:40 Now sometimes our problems are very small like that,
03:45 but one of the big problems, that for couples
03:48 can be such a serious problem, that both the wife and the
03:53 husband are quite sick at heart about it,
03:57 and that is infertility.
03:59 Infertility can be a problem that both men and women have,
04:05 and with women, the problem is much more difficult to find
04:09 than in men.
04:11 In women, they may have blocked tubes.
04:15 They may have a problem with the cervix.
04:17 It may be a problem with the vagina.
04:19 There may be an inadequate cushion for the implantation of
04:24 the little ovum, or the ovum itself may not be
04:27 of good quality.
04:29 There are many, many reasons why a woman can be infertile.
04:33 And sometimes the treatment for her may not be as easy as
04:38 it is for a man.
04:40 There are certain hormonal problems that a woman can have.
04:43 She can have a thyroid problem,
04:45 and that can cause her to have a serious difficulty
04:50 with conceiving.
04:53 It may be so severe that each month,
04:56 she goes into a depression.
04:57 Just sick at heart because no pregnancy had resulted.
05:02 And the thyroid problem is corrected, and sometimes
05:05 if that were the principal cause of her infertility,
05:10 then she conceives.
05:12 Sometimes, it's an ovarian problem.
05:15 Something wrong with the ovary,
05:16 or something wrong with her cycles.
05:18 There are several ways that the hormones can
05:22 go out of kilter, and can make it so that she cannot conceive.
05:28 Now sometimes, it is not the woman who is the
05:33 problem... it is the man...
05:35 And Dr. Don Miller is going to talk with you some about
05:39 male infertility.
05:41 What can you tell us that will shed some light on this topic.
05:45 Well, whenever I deal with people, and this often happens
05:49 when I'm in places like India, where there is a fertility
05:52 problem... of course it's always the women coming to me
05:54 The men will NEVER come...
05:56 And, of course, the first problem I see in places like
05:59 this is... Here's this woman who I would
06:02 take to be in her late teens, and she is,
06:04 and she's been married for 8-9 years, and she's been unable
06:08 to conceive... I'm just thinking the trauma
06:10 that this poor child has gone
06:12 through has probably had a lot to do with it.
06:14 But I would always tell her AND her spouse...
06:16 This is what I tell them when I go there...
06:19 I say, "Look, what I want you to do, is I want you to go home
06:23 and eat the BEST foods you can find.
06:26 Natural foods... I want you to eat a lot of
06:28 B vitamin-type foods.
06:30 As a matter of fact, I will buy the B vitamins,
06:32 give them multiple vitamins, some complex B vitamins
06:37 Have them eat a lot of fresh fruits and vegetables,
06:40 and have no relations for at least one month...
06:43 And then according to their cycle, when they're at the peak
06:47 of their fertility, I say... then is when you try
06:50 it again, and see what happens.
06:52 But men often get into problems, you're seeing this more and more
06:55 More and more men today are infertile for a couple of
06:58 very common reasons.
07:00 #1. They're taking steroids, trying to build up their bodies
07:05 which is going to lessen their production of sperm
07:07 and, therefore, they're not going to be able to
07:09 enable their wives to conceive.
07:11 And so, if men want to have children, or have their wives
07:15 have children, they need to stay away from the steroids,
07:17 and let the muscles develop naturally.
07:20 But there's another new one... it's not so new,
07:23 but it's been recently discovered...
07:25 Not long ago, I bought a bicycle,
07:28 and I rode that thing, and I was in a lot of pain
07:31 because they have this little thing about the size of a banana
07:34 ...and I don't like sitting on bananas for long periods of time
07:37 especially these hard bananas.
07:38 They find that people who ride bicycles with this
07:41 narrow seat, because of the lack of circulation,
07:46 that this will cause, because this is pushing up into that
07:49 area, will decrease the amount of spermatozoa the body will
07:53 produce and, therefore, reduce a man's fertility himself.
07:56 And so, we need to get those nice big tractor seats
07:59 It may not look very macho.
08:01 It may not make you very aerodynamic...
08:03 but I would recommend you get a smaller seat.
08:05 Also, the overheating of the male organs is not very good.
08:11 So basically, the jockey-type underwear...
08:16 these really tight little bikini-type...
08:19 I see some men... in the stores you see the
08:21 advertisements for bikini-type underwear for men
08:24 Not healthy for the male anatomy.
08:26 And so the best thing for him to do is get the boxer-type
08:30 shorts, and that might help him a lot in staying away
08:33 from the infertility problem with his wife.
08:35 There are other psychological things also in this thing.
08:39 You know, both the husband and the wife have to be at one
08:42 I think sometimes the body says...
08:44 "No, we're not going to let this happen because
08:46 things just aren't right. "
08:47 But then there's another thing we've got to consider...
08:49 Maybe God is saying, "For some, yes, but for you, no"
08:53 But there's another factor in there too...
08:55 that I failed to mention, and we need to mention because
08:57 we're living in a strange time in this earth's history
09:00 We're living in a time just like the time of Sodom and Gomorrah
09:03 And much, much infertility is being caused by
09:07 sexually transmitted diseases that may have transpired
09:10 15, 20, 30 years ago!
09:12 Maybe not 30 years ago, but a long time ago
09:15 which has so damaged the apparatus,
09:17 that conception is impossible.
09:19 And so, it's extremely important to live pure in these days...
09:24 if you want to have a normal and productive life.
09:27 Does that sound like good advice, Dr. Thrash?
09:29 Yes, that's very good advice, and I, of course,
09:32 agree with that fully!
09:33 I got from the internet, on male infertility,
09:37 some things that I thought were worthy of taking note of.
09:42 One is that in 30% of infertile couples,
09:46 the husband, alone, is involved,
09:51 and in another 20%, the husband is partly to blame
09:55 and the wife is partly at fault with that...
09:58 But it's in those cases that a man can be greatly helped.
10:03 And, of course, to make a test for a man to test his
10:10 fertility... very simple, just a laboratory test
10:13 and a count of spermatozoa, and an understanding of
10:19 what percentage of those spermatozoa are in good health
10:23 and are nicely motile...
10:25 that can be very helpful to one to know.
10:28 And then about 20 to 250 million spermatozoa per cc
10:34 that's the expected count
10:36 And if it falls below that, then of course,
10:40 the man may have a serious problem that
10:43 can be dealt with... There may be something
10:47 that's unique to him, that with a very small
10:51 amount of treatment, he can come out of
10:54 that with no problem.
10:55 No more than 60% of the spermatozoa may be active
11:01 and still the man can be fertile.
11:04 But if more than 40% of the spermatozoa are inactive,
11:10 then he may not be fertile.
11:12 In addition to the excessive heat of clothing,
11:16 excessive heat of very hot baths taken daily
11:20 over a prolonged period of time...
11:22 that can also be a cause of infertility.
11:26 With the testes not descended fully into the scrotum
11:31 that can also be another cause of male infertility.
11:35 Or, varicoceles... that's a condition that can be
11:40 readily corrected by a urologist.
11:43 And then, poor nutrition, other disease like diabetes,
11:48 hardening of the arteries, illnesses of those kinds can
11:53 certainly be a problem with causing infertility.
11:57 About 50% of the causes of infertility in men can be
12:02 successfully treated.
12:04 It may be that high in women, but it's more difficult
12:07 to make a full assessment in women, than it is in men.
12:12 Now, I would like for Dr. Miller to talk with you
12:15 some about infantile colic.
12:19 This is a disorder in children, in babies
12:23 that usually is self-limited... that is before the age of 1 year
12:28 usually it's going to go away, but what can you tell us about
12:32 infantile colic... a very distressing problem.
12:36 It is very distressing probably to the point where some
12:38 parents wish they'd been infertile because it can REALLY
12:40 drive you to distraction to have a child with that.
12:43 Basically, this is a very serious problem for a child.
12:46 Excess gas passing up and down through the tract;
12:50 the child will sit there and have bloating...
12:52 They'll sometimes arch their backs,
12:54 or they'll sit there and draw their legs up.
12:56 They'll just cry incessantly and it can be very
12:59 disturbing for the whole family.
13:01 And, I suspect some of you have spent your long nights
13:05 walking the floor, patting the baby and bouncing
13:08 up and down... and so strange that the bouncing
13:09 them up and down seems to do some good,
13:12 and we'll talk about a good way to do that naturally
13:14 that Dr. Thrash told me about some years ago...
13:16 But what causes it in the first place?
13:19 They find that children who are born in countries
13:23 where there are not so many drugs used,
13:25 especially drugs that are used in labor and in delivery
13:29 they have less infantile colic.
13:32 There's something about the medication,
13:34 because if you're doing it during labor and delivery,
13:38 that is going to pass through to the child
13:40 and something is in that child that
13:42 that child's body is going to have to deal with,
13:44 and often, it deals with it in
13:46 a manifestation of a thing like colic.
13:48 It could also be the child's diet.
13:50 Now, we would recommend to everyone,
13:54 as far as humanly possible, that that child be breastfed.
13:58 Breastfeeding the child is the best way to avoid
14:01 many, many of the problems... It strengthens the
14:03 child's immune system for the rest of their life.
14:06 They have shown studies that they have higher IQs
14:08 But just for the fact that they're getting good milk
14:11 but only if the mother's diet is a diet that's going to
14:16 promote her producing good milk.
14:18 The mother cannot be eating things that going to
14:21 pass through her body, into the milk, and into the baby
14:24 that's going to cause a problem.
14:25 And so, let's say the mother is breastfeeding,
14:28 and still the child has lots of colic... Look at the diet!
14:32 Onions in the diet, broccoli, brussel sprouts, cabbages...
14:37 all of these things produce lots of gas when it's passed through
14:41 the milk into the baby, and these things could be
14:43 causing the colic in the child.
14:46 And so, mother, watch the diet.
14:49 Get a very low gas-forming diet,
14:51 and that's the best diet for your child.
14:53 If you have not breastfed, or are not breastfeeding,
14:57 and you're on some type of formula...
14:58 Almost all infant formulas have some type of
15:01 dairy products, and dairy products being
15:03 the #1 food allergen... that could be your problem.
15:05 Trouble is... on the other side of the coin,
15:07 SOY can be an exacerbator of the colic,
15:11 and so soy/dairy, both of these things and almost
15:14 I don't know that there's any baby formulas
15:17 without one of those two things...
15:19 But try one or the other.
15:21 The best thing to do is go away from the dairy
15:23 into a soy-based product.
15:26 If the child has colic, a couple of other things you can do.
15:30 You can make some catnip tea.
15:33 Just some nice, warm catnip tea, put it in a bottle,
15:35 and have the child take some warm catnip tea.
15:39 If the child is not taking it, or you don't think
15:41 they're getting enough, you could also do,
15:43 very gently and very carefully, a catnip tea enema,
15:47 which will also cause some of that to be absorbed
15:50 through the intestinal tract, and that can do
15:52 some good for the child.
15:53 You can also take some charcoal, put it in water,
15:56 stir it up, let it settle until you have just a
16:00 darkened water, and give that to the child,
16:04 in minor amounts... small amounts, they won't take a
16:06 whole lot... but some of that into the body will also
16:09 help to take up some of the gas, and could lessen the colic.
16:13 You could also put warm compresses over the abdomen
16:17 This could be quite good to eliminate the colic events.
16:21 The one that Dr. Thrash recommended some years ago
16:24 when it's something that, you know if you have a child
16:26 in the home, and you have a washing machine,
16:28 you're always going to be doing laundry.
16:29 And so what you do is, you take a child's seat,
16:33 a car seat, or a little bassinette,
16:35 and fix-it to the top of the washing machine
16:37 so it can't jiggle off... You will stay right there
16:40 in the room with her, and do a load of laundry.
16:43 Don't put Clorox in because you don't want her or him
16:46 breathing the Clorox fumes.
16:49 But just do a nice load of laundry, and just that jiggling
16:53 as the machine works back and forth, the agitator,
16:56 the spin cycle, that jiggling will often take away
17:01 the sensation... It will help the child get over that.
17:04 I know a friend of mine, when I lived in Key West, Florida,
17:07 she would always, when the child had colic,
17:09 put the child in a car seat, strap him into the car
17:12 and go for a drive.
17:13 Just that movement, that's why we walk the child
17:15 at 3 o'clock in the morning, patting them...
17:18 that movement itself... will help move the gas
17:20 and will lessen the colic events.
17:22 And so, some simple things you can do that are
17:25 no cost, and very easy to do for yourself and your child
17:30 They may not remember to thank you when they're 20,
17:32 but they will certainly thank you by being quiet,
17:35 and letting all 3 of you have a good night's rest.
17:38 And I think that's what we need to do.
17:40 Yes, very good tips on how to relieve the colic,
17:45 and have everybody get a good night of sleep.
17:47 It's often the mother who needs the help... more almost,
17:51 than the baby because the mother can be
17:54 just about fit-to-be-tied by the end of the day
17:56 she needs a break from hearing the baby cry all day.
17:59 So, you can be a good medical missionary by just
18:02 staying with the baby and let the mother get out of the house
18:05 for a little while.
18:07 For a number of years, I've had a very LARGE garden.
18:10 I've enjoyed that garden a lot.
18:13 I generally plant the entire garden with something...
18:17 not always something that's harvestable.
18:19 But I enjoy planting flowers in my garden,
18:24 in my vegetable garden, and I enjoy planting a wide
18:27 variety of different kinds of vegetables and creeping
18:32 things that come to fruition sometime during the summer.
18:37 I'd like for Dr. Don Miller to tell you some of those
18:41 things that are benefits from an agricultural program
18:46 in your own home.
18:47 Dr. Miller, do you have a garden yourself?
18:49 Well... no.
18:53 My problem with gardens is that...
18:56 and I've had them! I LOVE gardening!
18:57 It's one of my favorite things to do.
18:59 And I'll plant my nice garden, and you get it all hoed up,
19:02 and you get everything planted,
19:03 and things start going up, and then I go to India...
19:05 or I go to Africa, or I go to Russia
19:07 And I come back, and I've got pigweed,
19:09 and I've got all kinds of strange things growing
19:11 in my garden, so I pretty much ... I go up to her garden!
19:15 Whenever I come home, she says, "You can take ANYTHING you want,
19:18 because she DOES have a huge garden!
19:20 And she has a high fence so the deer can't get it,
19:22 and she will have lots of stuff in her garden.
19:26 But when I can, I do plant a garden.
19:29 Years ago, we had a visiting doctor lecturing at
19:31 Uchee Pines, a very well-known physician,
19:34 and he was talking about foods and things like this
19:37 ...And someone raised their hand and said,
19:39 "Well, should we eat all organic food?"
19:41 And he said something that I've never forgotten...
19:44 He said, "Well you know, Americans consume 80% more
19:47 organic food than they produce. "
19:50 And it took us a minute to figure out what he just said.
19:53 But basically what he said was...
19:54 "Just because it says so, it doesn't mean it IS so. "
19:56 And so the best way to guarantee that you have organic food
20:00 is you grow it yourself.
20:01 And you know what it is, what you planted, when you planted it
20:06 You know what you fertilized it with.
20:07 You know IF you sprayed it, or if you did not spray it.
20:10 You know every SINGLE thing about that garden
20:12 because that garden is YOUR garden, and you're growing it.
20:15 I am one who tends to go away from things like hybrids
20:22 and, of course, genetically modified foods.
20:24 And you can guarantee that you don't have them,
20:26 if you're doing the gardening yourself.
20:28 And there's something else about the joy of being
20:31 out into the garden in the early morning hours
20:33 and just working in the dirt.
20:35 I think there's something transferred.
20:36 As a matter of fact, when I've got a good garden going,
20:39 I like to work in my bare feet.
20:40 There's something about the soil in contact with
20:44 the feet that just sort of energizes me.
20:47 There's also other good benefits.
20:49 ...As you're doing your gardening,
20:50 you know, you got to bend down, you got to stand up,
20:52 you got to bend down, and stand up.
20:53 Well that's called exercise.
20:54 It's called stretching.
20:56 We find that people who are really into gardening,
21:00 get plenty of exercise, they get plenty of stretching,
21:03 and plenty of aerobic exercise.
21:04 Have you ever gone up about 50 feet of corn rows
21:09 trying to hoe them out, hoe all the weeds,
21:11 you're getting some good aerobic exercise.
21:13 So that's one of the other benefits, it's just getting
21:15 out there and getting that exercise.
21:18 You got the fresh air, you've got the sunshine.
21:20 You've got that contact with nature which is so
21:23 vitally important when you're out there
21:26 in your particular gardens.
21:27 And, one of my favorite benefits is you can eat things fresh.
21:32 I mean, we're talking about really fresh!
21:35 And we don't realize how important it is to eat things
21:37 fresh... as soon as a plant is plucked from...
21:41 or a fruit, or a vegetable is plucked from its
21:43 plant, it starts to degrade in certain ways.
21:46 But if you can go out there in your garden, pluck your
21:49 fruit, or your vegetable, go back into the house and eat it
21:52 right then, you're getting benefits that you will get
21:55 no other way from your food, than doing it exactly that way.
21:58 So that's one of the other very nice benefits
22:01 of going out there in your garden.
22:03 And gardening is something that you can do year round.
22:07 I like to grow sprouts in the house.
22:09 I like to make some type of little
22:11 hot frames outside my house.
22:13 I just use PVC, and bend it over against my house
22:17 and plant my plants in there.
22:18 I have some black plastic that will absorb the sun's rays.
22:21 It's a little bit easier when you live in a state like Alabama
22:25 You couldn't do that as much up north,
22:27 but up north, you can plant things that grow
22:29 UNDER the ground, like your carrots...
22:30 And then, what you do is, you heavily mulch over there.
22:33 And you can go out there in the middle of the winter,
22:36 move your mulch away, and pull up fresh carrots.
22:39 And so, I'd recommend you do it that way...
22:40 is have something growing fresh year round.
22:43 You've got the benefits of the fresh food,
22:45 you've got the benefits of the exercise,
22:48 you've got the benefits of knowing that you've
22:49 done something good.
22:50 And if you do it right, now this is, I guess this is sort of a
22:54 if you REALLY do it right...
22:56 Normally, it costs more for your food if you garden
22:59 than if you buy it at the store.
23:00 That's only because we don't know what we're doing.
23:02 But if you really get into gardening,
23:04 you're going to save a lot of money too.
23:06 You save money, you save your health,
23:09 and you get ALL the benefits that God has placed
23:11 into His soil and into His good foods.
23:14 And so, that's what I'd recommend you do, Dr. Thrash.
23:16 Yes, and I like to do just as you said,
23:19 when I come home from the office, I stop by the garden
23:22 pick some fresh things, and go right in the house
23:25 and prepare those for lunch, and often in just a matter of
23:28 minutes I can have lunch on the table with things that
23:31 came FRESH from the garden
23:33 And close on the heels of gardening...
23:37 is that of housekeeping.
23:39 I'd like to talk about some of the benefits of good
23:42 housekeeping.
23:43 When a woman, or a man is good at housekeeping,
23:47 the house can be orderly all the time, or almost so.
23:53 When a house is neat, even if you haven't had time to
23:59 dust, or to mop, or vacuum...
24:01 If the house is neat, it will look clean even if those
24:05 other things are not done... which might make you
24:09 label it as "not clean"
24:11 But being NEAT, everything looks good.
24:15 And so I recommend that if you're the kind of person
24:18 who allows clutter just to build up, that there be times
24:22 when you de-clutter your house.
24:24 Just go around, get everything, and I have an apron
24:28 like the apron that carpenters wear,
24:30 that I put things in various pockets.
24:33 This pocket is to go to the bedroom,
24:35 and this pocket is to go to the bathroom,
24:37 and this pocket is to go to the kitchen!
24:38 So wherever I find something that's going to go to
24:41 one of these places, I simply put it in that pocket
24:44 ...then when I'm in that room, I put it in its proper place.
24:48 And often, within a matter of minutes, I can have my
24:52 whole house all freshly tidied up and looking nice.
24:56 There's nothing like the joy of going to bed in a very neat home
25:02 You can make your house a little bit of heaven.
25:06 There should always be sunshine in your home.
25:10 That sunshine of your presence there.
25:12 Now, another benefit of a tidy and orderly and clean home,
25:18 is that it reduces allergies.
25:20 People who have allergies, if the drapes and the curtains
25:27 are dusty, and the carpet has not been vacuumed
25:31 in a month or 2, they're going to have a lot more allergies
25:35 than the person who does not have that kind of environment.
25:39 So, there are a number of benefits besides the
25:43 satisfaction of having a neat and orderly home...
25:46 that can give you good health.
25:50 Now, there are some other health issues that Dr. Don Miller
25:55 will talk with you about.
25:57 I know that Dr. Miller had a bad cough not very long ago,
26:01 so maybe he'll talk with us about that now.
26:04 I thought I was going to die.
26:05 I hate having coughs.
26:07 I did have a very severe cough,
26:09 and there are some things you can do for coughs.
26:11 There are some severe coughs, and there are just some
26:13 normal coughs.
26:14 I would say the #1 cough, and the #1 reason for the cough
26:19 is dehydration, and the best cough medicine is
26:21 just drink some water.
26:22 If you've ever been there, in a service, maybe a church service,
26:27 or a speech, and someone is up there talking...
26:29 pretty soon they start coughing and... cough, cough
26:31 it's one of these things, a little dry cough.
26:33 Immediately, someone goes running out and comes back in
26:36 and sets a glass of water up there...
26:38 And immediately they take a sip,
26:39 and they're perfectly fine for a while.
26:41 So the best thing to do, first of all for a cough,
26:43 is to drink some water.
26:45 There are other things you can do.
26:46 There are some very nice cough medicines you can make.
26:49 Take a lemon, juice a lemon, add some honey to the lemon,
26:54 add a little bit of eucalyptus oil to that...
26:56 And then take small amounts of this...
26:58 It's very soothing to the throat.
27:00 Basically, a cough is a reflex action telling
27:03 the body, "There's something down here, let's get rid of it "
27:06 As we drink our water, we hydrate the lungs,
27:09 allow the mucus to be a little bit less viscous
27:12 so things can move out much better off.
27:15 You can also make sort of a poultice of cayenne pepper.
27:19 Take a quart of water and boil it, add 1/2 teaspoon of cayenne
27:22 pepper, and then dip a cloth in there, wring it out,
27:26 when it's able to be touched, wrap that around the throat.
27:30 That is very nice to help with the cough.
27:34 There are other things you can do...
27:35 cough drops... I like certain ones that are
27:38 nice, but make your own, drink your water
27:41 and you won't have so many problems with the coughs.
27:44 Very good...
27:45 And I hope the next time you have a cough,
27:47 that some of these remedies will help you.
27:49 I just love talking about remedies because people
27:52 feel better when they use a good remedy!
