NAME_OF_REMEDY: Eye tics or spasms
INGREDIENTS: Calcium tablets (NOT Tums!!!!)
INSTRUCTIONS: If you have an eye tic or spasm (in area around eye, notin eye) this is a symptom of a raging calcium deficiency.You need to immediately go on calcium tablets (Tums will not be absorbed properly because it is an antacid and calcium needs acid to be absorbed by the body), at least 2400 mcg a day(2 tablets in morning, 2 tablets at night)until symptoms go away (about 4-7 days), then you can cut back to 1 tablet am, 1 tablet pm and see if symptoms stay gone. If they come back, go back on a higher dosage of calcium and
stay on it.Do not go off of calcium once on it as your body needs to have it. I am on a high-protien, low carb lifestyle, so I need to be on the higher calcium dosage as red meat will mess up the phophorous to calcium ratio and calcium will be leached out of your bones. If you drink a lot of colas, red meat, or anything else high in phosphorous, then you will need to be on a higher calcium dosage. Your body will use what it needs and discard the rest. Most people need to be on calcium daily as their bodies do not get enough from their diets. I PROMISE you will NEVER have another eye tic or spasm again if you go on calcium and stay on it. If you go off of calcium, you WILL get the eye tics back. Calcium deficiency shows up in this manner.

NAME_OF_REMEDY: chronic blepharitis on eye lids

INGREDIENTS: wash eyes with pure homo milk everyday this completely cured my son after a week.you can stop doing this when
the eyes no longer crust up...

This was a remedy given to me by an Italian woman.
When my son was born, I kept having stys on my eye. When visiting with an Italian lady friend, she said if I still had breast milk, to
wash my hands, eye and breast well. Dry. Then taken some of my breast milk and rub on the sty.
It worked.
Also, another remedy that was told to me that I tried years before the 'milk' was take a copper penny,
rub the edge on a rough fabric cloth (warming the penny) and place the edge directly on the sty. It heats
the sty and the metal copper does it. This also works.
Good Luck,

If you get sand, dirt or an eyelash in the eye, flush with cold milk. My mom and grandmother both had an "eye cup" that you would fill, place over the eye and then blink for a minute to wash the eye. The milk seemed to stop the scratchy feeling.

Dear Susan,
My name is Richard pitter, and I am from the Island ofJamaica.
In 1994, I had a cist under my left eye, and the Ophthalmologist said he would have to do surgery toremove it. A co-worker at shell company where I wasworking at the time, told me about Garlic. She instructed me to cut a clove of garlic, and apply the"juice" from it to the cist 2 to 3 times daily, andthe cist would go away. I did this and the cist went away just as she said.I have seen others with the same problem, and told them of this remedy, theyve tried it, and it worked.
Here's another one to add to your list of home remedies.

Name of Remedy: Styes
Ingredients: Potato
Instructions: Use this before going to bed, so it will work while you sleep. Grate about 1/4 of a potato and place pulp in the toe of a knee-hi nylon stocking. This keeps the potato pulp dirctly off your eye. Make sure pulp is full of the potato's liquid.It is okay for the liquid to get on or in your eye as this is what penetrates the stye's surface and shrinks it. Cut off the end of the stocking, with the pulp, and place under an eye patch you can buy at a pharmacy or even at Wal-Mart. The patch will hold it in place and keep the moisture in as well. You will notice the remarkable differencein the swelling and soreness being relieved and often gone by morning. Use at the first sign of a stye as the remedywill provide relief and healing sooner.

Name of Remedy: Sties on the eyes

Ingredients: One Plain tea bag for each eye
Instructions: Wet the tea bag withhot/warm water and place on affected eye for about half an hour 2-3 times a
day. This will bring your sty to a head (when you're able to see the pus, like a pimple). Using the tea bag will be helpful, a warm rag will also help to open pores where the sty is as well.


Welder's eyes (burnt from being around welding)
Ingredients: one potato, grated or sliced
Instructions: Put on eyes & lay down...leave as long as possible. Works & saves a hospital bill.

this is great and works for a sty in the eye, break one raw egg then remove yellow, using white of the egg only. place white of the raw egg in a white cloth or paper towel. then place on eye 3 times a day for 15 minutes at a time. this really works and draws the sty out of the eye. my grandmother done this for me and my brother, and it was gone in 2 days.
