A Home Remedy for Painful Corns

Homemade Herbal Recipe for Painful Corns

2 ounces fresh ivy leaves.

Soak the leaves in vinegar in a pot or jar that has a lid. The vinegar should just Gover the leaves.

Cover the pot or jar and let the leaves soak for two weeks. However, keep adding more vinegar to the jar/pot to replace vinegar that is absorbed by the leaves.

At the end of two weeks the leaves are ready for use. Bind a leaf on the corn with medicated gauze.

Change the leaf twice a day until the corn is soft enough to be lifted out.

How to Deal with Excess Weight?

Each extra pound of fat you carry represents an over supply of 3500 calories. In order to get rid of these excess calories, you need to get down to work.

Get plenty of rest while trying to lose weight. The body burns half a calorie per pound of body weight per hour in sleep.

Insurance company statistics show that over-plump clients are poorer medical risks than slimmer ones.

However, there is no real merit in a "crash diet".

Whether you plan to lose, to gain or just to maintain your weight, there can be no lasting effect from quickie-programs that you abandon in three weeks' time.

Instead, this is a lifetime process. There should be no rigid rules. What you need is a positive resolution to eat healthy food and develop healthy food habits.

Exercise before meals is relaxing. Once you are relaxed, you will probably eat more slowly than normal, which, in turn, means that you will also eat less I

A well-balanced meal and the basic principles of sensible eating given overleaf, along with exercises, should help you control and maintain your weight effectively.

Want List - Betseyville

I went into a Betsey Johnson store in Toronto for the first time a few days ago. *breathless* It's like a cotton candy paradise! (I referenced cotton candy in the last post too..?) So many puffy crinolined dresses. It is pretty much my dream store. I'm kicking myself for not picking up a Betsey Johnson bag from Winners that they were selling for $25.

Sigh. If only. I'm kind of pining after a really big leather-type bag with lots of zippers and clasps and pockets.

Style Star: Kanye West

I'm not a fan of Kanye's attitude but I am a fan of his style. He knows how to mix the sporty and preppy look- and you can learn a thing or two by going to Kanye Univercity and checking out Kanye's blog. He gives 'lessons' on style, design, and of course, some of todays hottest models.
