    I recently read you can treat swimmers ear very effectively with garlic infused coconut oil
    Paleo since November 2011 - Carnivore since June 2012

    Early ear infections - equal amounts of garlic and mullein oil - a few drops in affected ear 3 or 4 x a day (that gem fom my son's pediatrician!)

    Athlete's foot, minor funguses, etc - Vitamin E oil (or coconut oil) with a few drops of tea tree oil

    Wasp sting or rashes - paste of sodium bicarbonate

    I second the ginger for tummy upset

    .. Hmm thinking of more....

    I hear that coconut oil can be used for a number of things. Recently, after shaving the old armpits, I had a nasty rash. Lathered it with coconut oil and gone, sting and all.
    What else is it useful for ????

    at the first sign of any kind of sickness, I tend to drink some water + powdered C (do your research on these, all brands are not equal!)

    colds: eat massive quantities of chopped RAW garlic. (not the pre-chopped stuff in a jar - that stuff's better than nothing, but it's usually milder than fresh chopped, potentially has additives/chemicals used in processing, and.. there's just an extra bite to the super-fresh stuff.) It will probably burn, clear your sinuses, possibly make you cry... but it really freakin' works.

    allergies: local raw honey - ingesting the bee-processed pollen helps your reaction to it.

    gum issues: tea tree oil - put a drop on your toothbrush and/or dilute and use as a mouthwash.

    UTIs - 1-2oz unsweetened cranberry juice + 2oz apple cider vinegar, topped with some club soda - I like it over ice - the flavor is intense, but in a cleansing, healthyish kind of way.

    UTIs in cats - add a cap-ful of apple cider vinegar to their food - I have 2 cats that share a dish (ACV isn't harmful to the one that doesn't have a UTI), they get half of the (13.5oz) can per feeding, so I stir in the ACV and some water - they don't seem to mind the taste.

    Yeast infections - prick a garlic clove with a fork, and stick it in the vagina. I've heard all kind of advice about putting the clove in a piece of gauze with a string for easy retrieval and/or warnings NOT to prick it with a fork (it can burn sometimes), but I'm not afraid to "dig" for the clove, and it doesn't usually work as well for ME if I don't prick the clove.
