Natural Remedies

The following statements are my opinions that I have made according to my studies and experiences. I am not a doctor or an “authority” on the subject. I invite you to do your own studying and then you can decide if natural remedies can  help you and your family. 


I think when you consider doing natural therapy, you also have to weigh Expence -vs- Dr. Appt./Co-pay etc. Although it does cost money to buy the herbs/oils etc. It is always more convenient and cost effective for me to stay home and treat myself and family. I know that there won’t be any side effects, and if we are away from home, I don’t have to worry about a doctor. In my book, knowing how to help yourself, is better any day.It gives me peace of mind knowing that I am not tied to my doctor. Yes, there is room in the natural medicine realm for doctors, but I think that it should go both ways. 

These are some of the natural remedies that I will not live without.


Natural Remedies from 

Widmer’s medicine cabinet


  1. The trick to natural medicine is to nip it in the bud before it gets out of hand.
  2. Knowing what to do. What are my options?
  3. If the sickness is aggressive, you have to be just as aggressive/consistent.
  4. Don’t be afraid of natural remedies. Be willing to study and to try it out on your own.



  1. Echinacea- Start taking it when you feel like you are getting sick. Keep taking it until you feel better. (Garlic and Cayenne work just as well.)
  2. Echinacea/Golden Root- Take this if you continue to get worse, or if you catch it too late. (This one acts like an anti-biotic)
  3. Grapefruit Seed Extract- Also acts like an anti-biotic. Take when you are already sick.
  4. Acidolphalis- cleans out the colon, gets rid of any bad growing bacteria etc.
  5. Kefir- like Acidolphalis, keep the colon clean and healthy. Consume double the dose if you feel you are getting sick.
  6. Coloidal Silver- acts as an antibiotic, but is I find it is better for bactrial than viral infections.


Essential Oils: (Young Living Essential Oils only)

  1. Purification: Bacterial infections: Strep, sore throats, sinus infections, bronchitis, mosquito/bee stings etc.
  2. Lemon: Viral infections: colds, flu, etc.
