Benign cysts on the genitals - a topic featured last time in case you were wondering - are known as Bartholin's gland cysts, and can be removed by cleansing the blood naturopathically. . .
the deadly infection MRSA that is rampaging through our hospitals doesn't seem to occur in hospices, a reader tells us. There they use tea tree oil, which stops it developing. Another reader says a similar effect can be had with Bee Propolis. . .
some confusion last time about the right ratio between omega-3 and omega-6. It should be, as stated, 2:1 in favour of omega-3, so we should consume double the amount of omega-3 to 6 (whereas the modern diet tends to be the other way round). . .
could we please start putting a contents list at the start of each E-news? It would be especially helpful for practitioners, pleads one practitioner. Everyone agree? . . .
no AOB would be complete without some reference to ticks. This time it's from a reader living in a 'tick-infested' area of northern New South Wales in Australia. If it's a grass tick, apply a large blob of Vaseline, leave for 10 minutes, and then rub off. For all other ticks, use tweezers and grasp the tick's head and turn anti-clockwise. But go gentle, and don't separate the body from the head. . .
more Bushisms (for those who can stand it) and this time some supportive noises from our American readers.

Hmmm.
