      Ringworm is a skin condition and has nothing to do with worms, look it up in google, you need a topical skin cream from the vets, be careful as it will spread to humans very easily!!

    How do you get rid of ringworm without going to the doctor?

    • Natural Healer says:

      Hi LindZ

      Here are some ideas to heal the issue.

      Worm infection can occur as a result of digestive enzyme deficiencies, nutrient deficiencies, poor hygiene, improper elimination of human waste, walking barefoot on contaminated soil, and eating improperly cooked meat.


      Natural Cures

      Aromatherapy: Useful essential oils include bergamot, chamomile, camphor, lavender, Melissa, peppermint, tea tree, and thyme.

      Diet: Avoid all processed and refined foods, sugars, soda, alcohol, unhealthy fats, and milk and dairy products. Avoid meats and fish unless you can be sure they are not contaminated.

      Daily Protocol: Throughout the day, chew small amounts of a mixture of pumpkinseeds, papaya seeds, papaya pulp, and unsweetened organic yogurt. Also drink filtered water with two garlic capsules.

      Before each meal, add pepsin and glycerine to hot water and drink immediately. Upon arising and at bedtime, swallow one clove of peeled garlic followed by a glass of hot tea with lemon.

      Fasting: Tapeworms can be dealt with by fasting on raw pineapple for three days (the bromelain in pineapple kills the tapeworms). Be sure to juice the pineapple armor as well as the fleshy fruit. Educate yourself on Cleansing and Detoxification to heal the issue with any worms. Especially colon cleansing.

      Flower Essences: Rescue Remedy® for accompanying stress. Crab Apple and Olive for exhaustion.

      Herbs: Make an infusion of fresh pumpkinseeds, one ounce of crushed seeds to a pint of boiling water. Drink a cup three times a day for six days a week for three weeks. Eat one ounce of pumpkinseeds a day as well. Peppermint, senna, and wormwood tea are also very helpful.

      Nutritional Supplementation: Recommended nutrients include garlic capsules, vitamin A, beta carotene, vitamin C, zinc, acidophilus, and deglycerrhized licorice (two to three times daily on empty stomach). Aloe vera juice or gel can also be helpful.

      Alternative Professional Care
      If your symptoms persist despite the above measures, seek the help of a qualified health professional. The following professional care therapies have all been shown to be useful for treating worms: Acupuncture, Ayurveda, Detoxification Therapy, Magnetic Field Therapy, Naturopathic Medicine, Oxygen Therapy, and Traditional Chinese Medicine.

      Best of health to you

    What can be done for a dog that has stepped on a bee?
    It’s almost midnight Friday,(no vets available) and our dog came in limping and licking his paw. When I tried to check it, a bee flew up from it. We can’t find the stinger,but it still seems to be hurting.

    • T says:

      Remove the stinger with tweezers. Or scrape out the stinger, moving parallel to the skin surface, to reduce the chance of pumping more venom into the dog�s skin.

      * Bathe the stung area with a solution of baking soda and water.

      * Immediately apply ice packs to reduce swelling (lining the pack with cloth or a thin towel). Do this frequently for 5 minutes at a time.

      * One way to treat bee stings is to give the dog Benadryl (diphenhydramine) by mouth. Typical dosages: for cats and dogs under 30 pounds, give 10 mg…dogs 30 to 50 pounds, give 25 mg…dogs over 50 pounds, give 50 mg. Use only the plain Benadryl formula.

      * A swollen muzzle often indicates a bee sting.

      * Stings and bites can cause severe reactions. If there is major swelling, or the animal seems disoriented, sick or has trouble moving or breathing, go to the vet immediately. Even if your pet seems fine, watch him carefully for 24 hours.

      * Dogs with short and thin fur are more prone to spider bites and scorpion stings. The venom can be very dangerous.

      Remedies for Various Skin Ailments:

      * Some ways to soothe insect bites, hot spots, and other skin conditions:

      ** Dab with milk of magnesia to calm irritated skin.

      ** Aloe vera from plants and creams. Apply gel directly on the spot. Or dilute with water, put it in a spray bottle and spray it on the spot.

      ** Dab with organic apple cider vinegar.

      ** Saturate a cotton ball with witch hazel and apply on hot spots for several days.

      ** Apply a mixture of baking soda and water to the affected areas. This also helps soothe itchy human skin in case you, too, have a sting, rash or poison ivy.

      ** Epsom salt: mix 1 teaspoon in 2 cups of warm water for drawing out infection and bathing itchy paws and skin.

      ** Combine 3 capsules of sage, 1/4 teaspoon of Epsom salts and 2 cups of water. Bring to a boil. Cool to room temperature, then strain out the sage. Store in a spray bottle or jar in the refrigerator to keep fresh. Apply to the affected area several times a day.

      ** Emu oil is a natural, soothing substance that helps treat canine skin ailments such as ringworm, flea bites, bee stings, rashes, hot spots and lacerations. Apply on the affected area.

      ** Aveeno. Mix a package of Aveeno oatmeal bath powder with 2 cups of water, wet the dog down with cool water, then apply the Aveeno mix. Leave on for 10 to 15 minutes. Then rinse off with cool water and towel dry.

      ** Petkin Reliefstick, which comes packaged like a stick deodorant. It contains natural ingredients to cool the skin as well as reduce redness and swelling and promote healing — plus a safe licking deterrent.

      ** Petroleum jelly or Bag Balm � use either to seal in moisture. Also excellent for chaffed paw pads.

      ** Brewers yeast: one pill for every 10 pounds of the dog�s weight; just add the pills into the dog�s food.

      Tea tree oil has been proven to be a powerful yet natural antiviral, antibacterial, antifungal medicine (essential oil).

      It is being used as a very effective first aid remedy and against countless skin ailments, infections, cuts, scrapes, burns, insect bites and skin spots etc.

      Tea tree oil is effective against nail fungus, ringworm, athlete’s foot, dandruff, acne, blackheads and many types of infestations including lice, mites, scabies and mosquitoes etc… (For humans and animals alike)

      Tea tree oil is not just soothing and disinfecting, it is capable of penetrating into the lower skin layers with its anti-inflammatory, disinfectant, analgesic (pain-killing) and cicatrizant (wound-healing) qualities.

      It has a diaphoretic effect – It promotes sweating – which enhances the body’s own natural preventative response when threatened by infection.

      Tea tree oil exhibits expectorant and balsamic characteristics, which are especially beneficial in the case of throat or chest infections, having a generally soothing and clearing (mucus-expelling) effect on the entire respiratory tract. It is also effective against head colds.

    My cats have ringworm, How do I get rid of it?
    I don’t wanna try anything other than a natural remedy, maybe something organic…any advice??
    I know I could simply take them to a veterinarian but I don’t know exactly what they will be using on them, I would prefer something all natural.

    • pro_and_contra says:

      Cats with ringworm should always be evaluated for underlying disease(s) that may have made them more at risk for this fungal infection.

      Also, Ringworm is contagious and highly infectious. It can be passed from cat to cat, dog to cat, cat to dog, cat to human, human to cat etc.
      Once your cat has been diagnosed with ringworm you will have to treat both the cat & the environment. If you live in a multiple cat household, all cats in your home will need to be treated. Carefully follow the instructions from your veterinarian when treating your cat. In healthy cats, ringworm will often resolve itself in 2 – 4 months. However, it is recommended you treat your cat for ringworm to speed up the process & prevent infection of humans & other pets.
      DO consult a Vet.
