Snake Bite!

Many of you know that I got bitten by a copperhead snake late last summer, treated it with home remedies for snake bites, and lived to tell the tale.

What you may not know is that this was the second copperhead bite in my family in the last few years.

(Yeah, we have a lot of copperheads here in Central Texas!)

The two experiences could not have been more different.

Last time, it was my husband who got bitten.

When it happened, he chose to head to the hospital. I respected his right to make that choice—and you’d better believe I went with him and stayed by his side as his advocate the entire time!

His whole experience was very painful, very disruptive, and very expensive. But, within about a week, all of the swelling had gone, and he was back to normal.

Contrast that with my own snakebite experience last summer. My husband knows me well enough that, after I got bitten, he didn’t even mention going to the hospital. Instead, he asked, “What do you want to poultice it with?”

I’m not going to lie—there was still a lot of pain involved.

But in every other way, my snakebite experience was completely different from my husband’s.

I was in the comfort of my own home, being treated by my husband and daughter. And, honestly, while that snake venom was working its way out of my system, I had the most amazing spiritual experience I’ve ever had.

It was absolutely life-changing.

You can read more about it on our website—the first part of my blog post is here and the second part is here.

Perhaps most telling of all was my husband’s comment to me when it was all over … .

I tell the rest of the story in my next video chapter of Grow: All True Wealth Comes From the Ground. (above)

In it, you’ll learn:

  • My #1 Favorite Home Remedy
  • 24+ Injuries and Ailments You Can Treat at Home
  • 7 Simple Steps to Mastering Home Remedies

I also reveal the fundamental difference between home and hospital treatments, what home remedies are (and what they’re not!), and why treating illness at home can be such an abundant source of family wealth.

After you watch, I’d love to know:

What are your favorite home remedies?

What’s your most memorable experience with treating illness at home?

I can’t wait to hear from you!

    Today is the first time I have watched one of your videos and loved it. I am more interested in learning all I can about herbs and herbal medicine. Thank you so very much for providing people with all the information to pursue there desire to learn different things.

  • Marjory, I love your videos but this is an awesome one! Thank you!

    I think you are preaching to the choir. If we are watching the video we are already convinced to take the path of home remedies. I am looking for very detailed and specific information. Exactly what was the treatment that cured the snake bite? If I got bit today I would be no closer to knowing how to treat it than before I watched. For me, the only real value of this project will be exact detailed how to treat with exact recipes.

    I appreciate your research and experience greatly. Being already convinced of the value and need for taking responsibility for knowing and using home remedies, I was hoping for details regarding specific needs and effective remedies.

  • I already dont want to waste my time watching this video without specific details

  • I enjoyed listening to your stories! 🙂

    Since you’re writing a book and asked for input about that, I’ll also add that I was a little disappointed that there wasn’t more specific information. The title, “24 Injuries and Ailments You Can Treat With Home Remedies” lead me to believe this would be more details. I think a better title for this video might be something like “The Beauty of Treating Injuries and Ailments at Home.”
