With the increased disease numbers and burdened demand on pharmaceutical medicine, soon, a lot of people would be diving into more alternative routes of healing. If you are one of those people, here are 7 homely remedies to explore instead of pharmaceutical medicine. Number 6 and 7 are sex and water.
Tea is a homely remedy that would never go out of style. It has evolved from its origin over 5000 years ago in China, to become a part of the daily meal routine for some people. Let’s not quickly forget that tea can heal.
Different types of tea brewed nicely serve different purposes. From the calming nerves and sleeping effects of chamomile tea to the body cleansing anti-oxidant ingredients of green tea, the list is extensively unlimited, tailoring to what you need the tea to heal.
Ginger got the ginger power, never underestimate it. Ginger has served as a medicinal therapy for gastrointestinal problems like nausea, vomiting, and diarrhoea. Ginger can be chopped up and cooked with water and brewed into a tea.
Honey is for the cough. If you have a common cold, then honey mixed with lemon, ginger, and garlic, brewed in a hot water can work good magic.
This is a good home remedy ingredient to always have around, you never know when the cough will come calling.
TEA TREE OIL
Itchy skin? Stung by a bee? Mosquito? or other insects? Tea tree oil may be your go-to remedy.
Garlic has anti-hypertensive effects and lowers blood cholesterol. Garlic can be used for cooking, chewed raw, or processed as tea.
Whichever way you choose to use garlic, make sure it’s safe. Do not use it as a replacement for your prescribed medication unless you consult with your health care practitioner.
I will try not to exaggerate. But sex is meant to be enjoyed by adults. Sex is packed with loads of health benefits which include, muscle relaxation, stress relief, sleep inducer. When done well, sex can be a source of good mental relaxation.
We all need water. Water is pure, it’s free, it’s nourishing, it rehydrates, it cleanses. Lack of water could lead to a lot of diseases.
When someone is dehydrated, a headache happens, the body and vital organs are starved. Water is the fountain needed to prevent and heal a lot of diseases.
The water turned into a piece of ice can be used as an ice compress for strained painful parts of the body. A warm water compress can be used to reduce swelling. Think of what a steamed nice bath can do to a weary body.
NB: None of the above remedies should replace a proper medical check-up or a piece of advice from your health care provider. If you are on any medication, ensure you consult with your health care practitioner before using an alternative remedy.
