    What Does The Numbers At The End Mean? I found this website but i don’t know what the numbers at the end of the ingredients mean and why some don’t have numbers. is this some kind of recipe

    Juniper: Acts as a diuretic, helps to regulate blood sugar levels, and relieves inflammation and congestion. Helpful in treatment of asthma, ladder infection, fluid retention, gout, kidney problems, obesity and prostate disorders.(2)

    Fennel: Used as an appetite suppressant. Promotes the functioning of the kidneys, liver and spleen and also clears the lungs. Relieves abdominal pain, colon disorders, gas and gastrointestinal tract cramping. Used for acid stomach. Good after chemotherapy and/or radiation treatments for cancer.(2)

    Mugwart: Used in cases of internal bleeding, worms and bad breath. It is an antidote for many poisonous mushrooms. Mugwart has nervine qualities that are excellent for treating uncontrollable shaking, nervousness and insomnia. Externally it has been used as the active substance in liniment for sprains, bruises and lumbago (lower back pain).

    Geranium: In addition to acting as a diuretic, geranium oil also has cicatrisant properties which helps scars and mars on the skin to fade and vanish. It promotes cell health and also encourages recycling of dead cell and regeneration of new cells. It is a tonic, helping body systems and functions to work properly by influencing endocinal glands for regulating the secretion of various hormones, enzymes, acids and bile, etc. It tones the respiratory system, digestive system, circulatory system, nervous system and excretory system. Geranium oil is also a vermifuge, helping to rid the body of intestinal parasites.(5)

    Lavender: Relieves stress and depression and is beneficial for the skin. Good for burns, headaches, psoriasis and skin problems.

    Orange: High in vitamin C and other substances like pectin, minerals and lignans which have specific properties themselves. Vitamin C is an antioxidant that is required for tissue growth and repair, adrenal gland function and healthy gums. It protects against the harmful effects of pollution and aids in the production of anti-stress hormones and interferon and is needed for the metabolism of folic acid, tyrosine and phenylalanine. He3lps to prevent cancer, protects against infection and enhances immunity. Vitamin C increases the absorption of iron. It also may reduce cholesterol levels and high blood pressure and prevent atherosclerosis. Essential in the formation of collagen, which is used to make connective tissue for skin elasticity.

    Peppermint: Enhances digestion by increasing stomach acidity. Slightly anesthetizes mucous membranes and the gastrointestinal tract. It is useful for chills, colic, diarrhea, headache, heart trouble, indigestion, nausea, poor appetite, rheumatism and neurotoxin reactions.

    Capsicum: Promotes perspiration, which anyone who has eaten any “hot” food should know from experience. Capsicum influences the flow of digestive secretions form salivary, gastric and intestinal glands. It improves the ratio of (HDL) cholesterol which decreases heart disease risk. When placed on the spine as an extract it allows other herbs to be absorbed in the body rapidly and this is called an herbal adjustment.

    Jojoba: Natural jojoba oil serves as an excellent moisturizing agent with exceptional spreading and lubrication properties and leaves a rich velvety non-oily feel on the skin while retarding water loss and enhancing the flexibility and suppleness of the skin. It is completely miscible with the natural sebum of the skin, forming a very thin, not greasy lipid layer. This layer is partially porous and provides exceptional trans-epidermal respiration and moisture control. Unlike greasy occlusive materials such as petrolatum, mineral oils and some lanolin products, jojoba oil provides and absolutely non-tacky, non-oily, non-greasy, “dry” softening to the skin.

    Cinnamon: Metabolism booster and natural fat burner. Relieves diarrhea and nausea, counteracts congestion, aids the peripheral circulation of the blood. Warms the body and enhances digestion; especially the metabolism of fats. Also fights fungal infection. It is useful for digestive problems, diabetes, weight loss, yeast infection and uterine hemorrhaging.(4)

    Do I Have Lymphoma, Any Answer Would Be Good? It started 7 months ago. When drinking red wine, port or cheap white wine, i get a pain under my jaw, it feels like it is in the salivary gland. This pain is quite bad pain about 20-30 minutes after drinking a for perhaps 2-3 seconds and then it is gone.

    I have drunk many other types of alcohol including gin and whisky and had no pain at all, well i say that but, i have random pains under my jaw(sort of weak twinges which are not realy pains, i think they are all in my head because they are never the same or in the same place, and i am paranoid about having lymphoma.

    I am 19yo (above the 18 year old drinking age in the UK) have no history of cancer and no swollen lymph nodes anywhere.

    Should i worry.

      Don’t entrust your health to a webiste- go see a doctor, list your symptoms and let HIM tell you the possibilities.

    Could This Be Cancer (seriously)? Well it’s behind my earlobe at the very top of my neck. Apparently it could be an activated Lymph node, Salivary gland or a fatty cyst. It is hard and I can move it around a little bit if i put my fingers around the sides. I hope it’s one of the above but it could be a tumour. I’m gonna go to see the doctor (I’m 14 by the way) and tell my parents. I feel fine, lately I’m more active than ever. No fatigue like the symptom, or pain. It’s been there for probably a couple of years and I’ve never been completely messed up as far as health is concerned. Not without another explanation (I’ve been ill obviously). I just wandered what the odds are of it being Cancer. I’m not a hypochondriac AT ALL! It’s all fine but I just want to completely get rid of the thought, don’t worry though I won’t lose sleep over it… yet.
    By the way, it’s under the skin. It can’t be seen, but felt only. I don’t know what I can compare it to in terms of size. It’s bigger than a pea. It’s about the size of a xbox controller thumbstick :L

    That’s about 1.5 – 2cm across and 1cm deep as far as I can feel. Not too big.

      Sounds like hypochondria. I had it pretty bad in the past, less so now.

      It’s sort of a cycle of “what if I have X” then you start to feel X because that’s all you think about. Some things I would do to help.

      Dr. Google can make it worse. Because a lot of the time you think of the worst possible outcome and find you may have something similar. Thing is there are a ton of other things it could be too. So looking up your symptoms may not be the best.

      Constantly thinking about it. If you feel uneasy about something, make a note and don’t think about it. Easier said than done, I know. But usually the best thing to do is to see if a problem is resolved in 10 days or something then go see a doctor after that.

      As for your salivary glands, poking and feeling them will make them irritated. Use your force of will to ignore them for a week and see if they normalize. If not, maybe ask a doctor.

    Submandibular (under The Tongue) Salivary Stone Self Removal? I don’t have a question any more, but I wanted to post this question because I spent the past month researching this. I had a lump in the salivary gland under my tongue on the right side develop about 5 months ago. It worried me for a while, but didn’t seem to get worse and I noticed I could move it around with my tongue. I figured that cancer probably doesnt move around like that, but still was worried. I kind of just went on with my life and didn’t get it checked because I don’t have good insurance. I also had the right side under my jaw swell up after eating sour/sweet/spicy foods. Basically foods that make you produce a lot of saliva. I started researching it and discovered salivary stones. I knew this was what i had because I saw pictures of others matching mine. It was a small pea sized white stone inside my gland under the tongue.
    So anyway, I couldnt find advice on how to remove it by myself or if that was even possible. Then I read where doctors in some cases can massage it out of the small opening where saliva comes out. I got close to the bathroom mirror and observed where the saliva squirts out under the tongue. I have a small duct almost directly in the middle. It seemed that the stone would get pushed toward the opening when saliva was produced, and I am now assuming that this blockage was causing the swelling the the gland due to too much saliva backed up.
    So I began to try to push it toward the exit point and squeeze it. But it hurt. Felt kinda like a pinch, and I was unsure about the hole’s ability to open up that far.
    So about a week ago, I was up in the middle of the night and just said f – it! Im just gonna try to push this thing out and see how bad it feels.
    I got a pair of fweezers and sterilized them, washed my hands thouroughly, and got some hot sauce to produce saliva to push it forward. Put the hot sauce on my tongue and it worked… pushed it right to the exit point inside in the middle. Then I took the tweezers and put them behind the stone and began to push it toward the exit. It felt weird to pull on it, but I didn’t care anymore and i pushed harder and harder…. and POP!! That little thing came right out of the hole! It was amazing, and it scared the crap out of me when it happened, but it was awesome. I spit it into my hand and washed it and looked at it. It was just a white little stone like thing. Kinda like bone material but not as solid because I squished it with the tweezers after squeezing REAL hard. Anyway, so I did have some pain by the hole that it came out of. It ripped it a little and it was bleeding. I spit out blood for a little bit, but honestly it wasn’t even close to as bad as I thought it might be. It just felt like a pinch. And it is healing up nicely after a week, but has been slightly sore.
    NOW…… all that being said, I do NOT recomend that you do this by yourself without a doctor. If I had the insurance, I would have gone right to an Ear Nose Throat / or neck & Head specialist. Oh and when I called the nurse at my doc’s office and told her about it in the beginning, she had no clue and said she had never heard of swelling after eating. What a great thing to say to a patient, right? “Oh yeah, never heard of that… sounds weird.”
    But my point to writing this is to tell you that it is possible to pop them out yourself if it is your ONLY option. I would however not recomend popping out stones that are any bigger than a small pea or a bb because I’m sure it would rip the hole even more and bleed a lot and hurt worse. But if it’s just a small one, get the saliva flowing and see if you can flush it out and push it out with tweezers.
    Oh and by the way, the swelling in my gland under the jaw has gone down entirely. I still may try to see a specialist and get x-rays or something just to be sure it is clear now in there, but hey… sometimes you gotta handle stuff when you are broke.
    Hope this helps anyone out there dealing with a submandibular stone.
    Does anybody have anything to add?
    Have you ever had a stone or removed it yourself?
    Cool, thanks Tweetie!
    According to her, I messed up the terminology. I guess the salivary ducts under the tongue are called “sublingual”. And it’s good to know that I did the right thing by popping it out on my own. It just seems like there isn’t too much info out there on how to pop one out and if it is safe to try it.

    Please Please Help! Lump Over My Voice Box? I’m 13 years old and will be 14 in a couple of weeks, but recently when I was on the phone, I coughed and my voice box kind of had a lump inside, the past few days my throat has been sort of flemmy and I hate touching my throat. It isn’t too complicated to breathe I still have the ability to. And a few months back I’ve had the same problem, but this had to do with my salivary glands and I was on medicine for a couple of weeks for a calcified stone inside one of my glands underneath the tongue.
    I’m not sure if the issue could again have something to do with the glands or just a sore throat headed my way.
    I caught a cold about four weeks ago and the lump was kind of there right before my throat became sore.
    I’ve been asking my mother to bring me into the ear nose and throat doctor in town all week and so far she hasn’t made me an appointment yet, she promised she would very soon but I would just like to get someones serious opinion on what it could possibly be. My heart sinks when I hear the word tumor or cancer.
    It doesn’t hurt to swallow, cough, sneeze, eat, drink, or talk. Or hurt at all it just feels like there’s something inside my throat that needs to come out. And I don’t feel it there constantly it’s just random times of my day and I don’t understand this..
    I’m very worried, please email me if you need anymore detail.
