These are home health remedies that have been emailed to me or that I found on the Internet.  I have not tried them all and do NOT guarantee the effectiveness of them.  If you try one and it works, or if you have one that works for you, please email me.  Thanks!
Bad Breath
  • Boil some cinnamon bark in a cup of water. Store it in a clean bottle in your bathroom. Use it as a mouthwash frequently.
  • Parsley leaves are rich in chlorophyll, nature's own deodorizer. Chew some leaves regularly and your breath will remain fresh.
  • You can chew some cardamom seeds to sweeten your breath.
  • Try a salt water rinse.  Add about a spoonful of salt to a glass of warm water and keep gargling with it until it is all gone.
  • Hydrogen peroxide rinse.  Swish, rinse and gargle with a small amount of hydrogen peroxide.  Caution: Be sure NOT to swallow the peroxide.
Here is today's Healthy Reflection from Spark People.
"If you have one true friend you have more than your share." 
- Thomas Fuller, English clergyman & historian

The value of friendship

We all have a handful of acquaintances--those people with whom we work or see at the store and casually say hello to and move on. But a friend is someone you confide in, bring over for an afternoon cup of coffee, invite to your wedding, or cry with when a loved one passes away. You just feel a sense of safety with a friend. Don't wait until a rainy day to express how much a good friend means to you. Often we are unaware of how much we mean to others until they speak up, and likewise we never know how much another person might truly need to hear such affirmations. An approving, cheerful word of encouragement can thrill a heart. Be sure to always say kind words before you part, show sympathy during hard times and affection during wonderful ones. Life would not be the same without positive friendships. Express your gratitude to someone today who has made a difference in your world!

I consider myself very lucky to be blessed with the wonderful and loving friends that I have in my life.  I love and value them all very much, and thank God for them every day.
