  • Natural Health Remedies

    It's amazing how many every day products there in our homes that can help with a range of health problems. So instead of rushing off to the Doctors (unless it's really serious of course) check this list of natural health remedies below and see what you can find to do the trick. Not only will you save money, but also you might find that the natural solution is the best.

    Apple Cider Vinegar

    Dilute one part to five parts and use an effective antiseptic wash to heal sores. For bad wounds, soak a gauze bandage in the solution and leave overnight.

    Burnt Toast

    Burnt toast contains charcoal, which is useful to relieving intestinal wind pain.

    Fresh Ginger Root

    For very tired and aching muscles and joints, grate some fresh Ginger root, then place in a clean handkerchief or muslin cloth and squeeze out the juice. Add the same amount of vegetable oil and massage into the sore areas until the skin is warm and pink. Applying before bed will help prevent disturbed sleep.

    Gingernut Biscuits

    Because these contain ginger, they are ideal to munch on before or during a long car or boat trip to help prevent nausea. Also good for dogs that get carsick. If you make your own, add extra Ginger.

    Grated Apple

    This is said to be great for relieving constipation, nausea and diarrhea.

    Potatoes

    Grate up a raw potato and apply the juice to soothe sunburn, cysts, inflammation, and swellings.

    Cabbage Leaves

    To treat sprains and bruises, crush dry cabbage leaves with a rolling pin or bottle. Put them in position over affected area and secure with a bandage. Replace with fresh crushed leaves every two hours and watch the swelling and redness disappear.

    Aloe Vera Plants

    Snap off a piece of an Aloe Vera plant, open up and use the gel inside as an effective cooler and healer of nappy rash. It's also good for helping to heal wounds, cuts, scraps, dry skin, sunburn and acne in teenagers. The older outer leaves are the most potent.

    Baking Soda

    Throw a handful into your a bath regularly to help prevent thrush. Baking Soda in the bath is also helpful to help ease itchy or hot sunburn, insect bites or hives, as well as chicken pox and measles.

    A teaspoon full can be added to a glass of lemonade or warm water and drunk as a quick anti-acid.

    Add a small amount to your shampoo and it will help strip your hair of build-up leaving you with shiny hair.

    For smelly shoes, place a teaspoon full inside their shoes and leave overnight. Next morning, shake it out, and the smell should leave with the baking soda.

    Peppermint Essence

    This is good for reliving itchy bites in children as it smells better than commercial products, doesn't sting and really works.

    Cornflour

    This is useful for more than just making your own gravies. It is a great cure for diaper rash. Just sprinkle some on and you should notice an improvement by the next diaper change.

    Honey

    Spread a small amount of honey on a little piece of bread and put 'honey side down' onto an infected wound, ulcer or a boil. The honey acts as a drawing ointment helping to clean it out.

    Honey is good for your skin (especially your neck area) when it becomes dry. Apply, leave for half an hour, and then rinse off in the shower.

    Tea Tree Oil

    Add a small amount to your bottle of family conditioner, and this is said to prevent head lice being contacted, as the lice are repelled by it.

    White Vinegar

    White Vinegar is another one of those products that has many different uses. One use is helping to heal the pain of a burn. Put some white vinegar liberally on a piece of cotton wool and dab the burnt area. The same can be done for sunburn.

    Some vinegar added to a bath with no other oils or bubble bath added, can be valuable in providing relief from eczema, psoriasis or dermatitis.

    To make your hair soft and shiny, add a glass of vinegar to your final hair rinse.

    SINUSITIS (Sinus Trouble)

    SYMPTOMS—One or more of the following symptoms: facial pain, tenderness on the cheekbones, face and forehead, earache, headache, dry cough, bad breath, fever, dazed feeling in the head, loss of smell, and burning and tearing eyes. Sometimes it results in a swollen face, stuffy nose, and a thick mucous discharge.

    CAUSES—The nasal sinuses are located in the bones surrounding the eyes and nose. They help your voice sound fuller and richer. They also help store overflow phlegm in time of illness.

    Sinusitis is an inflammation of the nasal sinuses that generally occurs together with upper respiratory infection. Colds or bacterial and viral infections spread into the sinuses.

    Sinus problems which have become chronic may be caused by injury of the nasal bones, smoking, small growths in the nose, or irritant fumes and odors.

    Allergenic sinusitis may result from plant pollens (hay fever) or allergies to milk; dairy products; or, less likely, wheat.

    An over-acid condition in the stomach can cause sinus troubles. Poor digestion of starch, sugar, and dairy products can produce a runny nose. When force is used in blowing the nose, phlegm is pushed up into the sinuses.

    Swimming or diving can force phlegm up into the sinuses.

    Allergic rhinitis is a common cause of sinusitis. Avoid substances which might be giving you allergies.

    Decayed teeth, enlarged and infected adenoids, cigarette smoke, perfume, household cleansers, and dusty air can cause irritation to the sinuses.

    So sinus trouble can either be caused by an infection or by other things. If drainage is clear after a week, you probably have no infection; but, if mucous is greenish or yellowish, you do. If drainage is clear and there are no accompanying symptoms of a common cold, you probably have an allergy.

    Few people with sinus trouble have actual sinus infection (sinusitis).

    Beware of swelling around the eyes! If left untreated, this can lead to bronchitis, asthma, throat infection, or pneumonia.

    If you are interested in figuring out which sinuses may be bothering you, here is some helpful data:

    Frontal sinuses produce frontal headaches which are most severe between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m.

    Maxillary sinuses makes pain in the upper teeth and cheek, and sometimes eye pain as well. It generally lasts from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.

    Ethmoid sinuses induce a dull pain behind the eyes, pain in eye movements, tearing, light sensitivity, and occasionally sore throat and nighttime cough.

    TREATMENT—

    • Do not suppress a cold, flu, sore throat, infected tonsils, or other acute disease. Go to bed, take juices and light meals, rest, and get well. When suppressed, the phlegm does not flow out, but hardens in the sinuses and trouble begins.

    • Take a short fast on citrus juices, vegetable juices, and herb teas. Drink lots of water and juices.

    • As soon as you are able, begin eating nourishing food, especially vegetables, fruits, nuts, and beans. Drink fresh carrot juice every day.

    • Eliminate meat, dairy products, white flour foods, and sugar.

    • Do not use nose drops; they aggravate the situation by stopping the drainage and hardening the mucous. Decongestants also increase blood pressure.

    • Hot liquids help the sinuses flow out their contents.

    • Helpful herbs to reduce sinus congestion would include comfrey, slippery elm, fenugreek, mullein, aloe vera, yerba santa, red clover, and white oak bark.

    • Garlic contains a chemical which makes mucous less sticky. Horseradish has it also. Cayenne acts in a somewhat similar manner. Peppermint tea also helps open up the sinus passageways.

    • Add crushed garlic cloves to 4 cups water; remove from the heat after coming to a boil. Cool and gradually drink. This will help clean out the sinuses and lower stuffiness.

    • Heat on the sinuses helps relieve pain. This can be hot wet compresses, a heat lamp, a 60-watt light bulb, or a heating pad.

    • A variation of this is: Twice a day, lean over a pan of hot water with a towel draped over your head (or stand in a hot shower). Inhale the vapors as they waft up toward your nose. If you are at work, order a cup of something hot; and, leaning over, sniff up the moisture.

    • Some prefer cold applications to the sinuses, instead of hot ones. Put crushed ice in a plastic sack, wrap in a moist towel, and place over the sinus which hurts. At the same time, have the feet in hot water. This will help draw blood from the sinus area. However, the hot method is better for draining the sinuses.

    • Mix 1 tsp. of salt with 2 cups warm water. Pour it into a small glass; and, holding back your head, sniff it up into one nostril (as you pinch the other one closed). Repeat for the other side.

    • Rubbing your sore sinuses brings a fresh supply of blood to the area. Press your thumbs firmly on either side of your nose and hold for 15-30 seconds.

    • Sit with your head between your knees. Cough gently as though you were clearing your throat. Then hold your breath for a minute or so, as the mucous slowly drains. Then gently inhale. Be sure you are drinking enough fluids when you do this.

    • Walking helps clear your sinuses.

    • Between meals every day, take six charcoal tablets with water. This will help remove toxins. Only do this during the crisis, or it can cause temporary constipation.

    • It is better to sniffle than to blow your nose. If you must blow, only blow lightly and through one nostril at a time.

    • A humidifier will help keep sinuses moist indoors during the winter months. A humidity of 40-50% will increase sinus comfort.

    • Avoid cold, damp living, working, and sleeping quarters.

                  Nice post Ironic, but have you heard about a book of natural cures called "Alternative Cures" by Bill Gottlieb by any chance? I bought this book recently and I was just wondering if it was similar or the same as the book that you are talking about.

                    No sorry, I haven't heard of it. I'll see if my public library has it.

                        Yeah i know girls who mix honey and olive oil and apply it to their face as a beauty regiment. Its wierd seeing someone with honey and oil on their face walking around.......


                        Everyone should drink green tea, it does wonders for anti-oxidant levels with catechins. Its sad when I see kids drinking pepsi instead.
