5 easy home remedies that have worked for generations
Home remedies have been around for centuries, way before we had any pills to cure simple ailments of the body. Granny definitely knew her kitchen medicine when she brewed some hot tulsi chai for your sore throat! Here are 5 easy home remedies using all natural ingredients at home.
Ginger: To quell nausea, infuse fresh ginger in hot water. Strain and freeze the concoction in ice cube trays. Crush the cubes and suck the icy chips.
Garlic: To get rid of a sore throat, gargle twice daily with a solution of six crushed garlic cloves mixed into a glass of warm water. Research shows that fresh garlic juice has antimicrobial properties that fight pain-causing bacteria.
Lemon juice: Have a glass of lukewarm water mixed with lemon juice and honey post your workout every morning. Lemon is loaded with pectin, a soluble fiber, which holds back the constant cravings for food. This makes you feel fuller for long.
Coriander: Crush about 20g coriander leaves along and use the juice so obtained as nasal drops to stop nose bleeds.
Mint: Struggling with a case of bad breath after an especially spicy meal? Don’t bother with the sugary gum, go natural instead and chew on some fresh mint leaves to cleanse the palette, and freshen the breath.
Stay healthy and happy, the natural way!
