This could save your life..................

I found this information on Alpha Women today and wanted to pass this along to everyone that reads my blog.

What are you to do if you have a heart attack while you are alone!!

Read This...It could save your life!

Let's say it's 6:15 p.m. and you're driving home (alone of course), after an usually hard day on the job. You're really tired, upset and frustrated. Suddenly you start experiencing severe pain in your chest that starts to radiate out into your arm and up into your jaw. You are only about five miles from the hospital nearest your home.

Unfortunately you don't know if you'll be able to make it that far.

What can you do? You've been trained in CPR but the guy that taught the course, didn't tell you what to do if it happened to yourself.

Without help, the person whose heart is beating improperly and who begins to feel faint, has only about 10 seconds left before losing consciousness.

However, these victims can help themselves by coughing repeatedly and very vigorously. A deep breath should be taken before each cough, and the cough must be deep and prolonged, as when producing sputum from deep inside the chest. A breath and a cough must be repeated about very two seconds without let up until help arrives, or until the heart is felt to be beating normally again

Deep breaths get oxygen into the lungs and coughing movements squeeze the heart and keep the blood circulating. The squeezing pressure on the heart also helps it regain normal rhythm In this way, heart attack victims can get to a hospital.

Thought this was an interesting read... just wanted to share!

Natural Healing Spray for Sun Burns

I remember as a child and as a teenager being out in the sun all day long and crying all night because of sunburned skin. There just wasn't enough information on sunscreen or after sun care when I was growing up. I grew up with suntan lotion, not sunscreen!

Olive oil is excellent to use to heal burns and historically has been used this way for centuries. Extra virgin olive oil is high in vitamins and minerals too. The following is a recipe that you can make at home in a 8 oz or larger spray bottle. The dosage of the recipe is designed for children. Please double the amounts for essential oils for adults.

1/2 cup distilled water
1/4 witch hazel lotion
1/4 cup aloe vera gel or aloe vera juice**
2 drops of Chamomile essential oil
1 drop Geranium essential oil
1 tsp. honey

In your 8 oz spray bottle add the water, witch hazel and aloe. Combine your essential oils and honey, and mix very well with the end of a spoon. Add this mixture to the 8 oz spray bottle. Shake very well to mix. Label your contents. Shake well before applying avoiding the eye area.
