Home Remedies I

I was made aware of some really good home remedies for all kinds of ailments. Many of these remedies can be found in almost every kitchen cabinet or pantry and are a lot cheaper then medications.

You can try treating the following symptoms and conditions with the suggested herbs and other natural options:

- A pinch of cayenne pepper on a small, undeep cut will stop the bleeding real quick and even relieve the pain.

- You can ease the pain and swelling which could occur with a toothache by putting a few drops of clove oil on tooth and/or gums, or biting on a smashed piece of garlic. The latter may cause some unwanted odor, but garlic is a great antiseptic.

- A rash or allergy can be cured by drinking two to three cups of green tea daily. Green tea possesses some antihistamine abilities and doesn't cause the sometimes serious side effects of prescription and over the counter medications.

- Athlete’s Foot can be cured by killing the fungus which causes it. There are several options; soak your feet in deluted white or apple cider vinegar, salty water, or wash them with garlic juice. You will have to do this several times a day, no matter which option you choose, and keep doing it for at least a week even with the fungus gone; otherwise it will come back in no time.

- Washing your face with oatmeal will cleanse it from oil and impurities and it is also a great, but gentle, exfoliant. These properties make oatmeal an excellent remedy for acne and sensitive skin.

- A mild, beginning ear infection can be treated by putting a few drops of garlic oil or white vinegar in the ear. After you put the drops in the ear, lay on the opposite side for a while in order to let it find its way deeper down into the ear canal. Do this several times a day until the infection is gone.

- Arnica cream is an excellent help to relief soreness of muscles, bruises, sprains, and other pains. Apply it on the painful spot and it not only gives instant relief, but speeds up the healing as well.

- Ginger, anise, pepperming, coriander, and dill are great in preventing flatulence. You can incorporate these spices in your meals, or brew a cup of tea with them. Digestive enzymes help too and these can be bought at the health food stores.

Even though I always like the idea of curing something the natural way, I would advice you to see your doctor in case the condition worsens or persists for more then a few days.

In case the condition has already become more serious or severe, it is best not to take matters in your own hands anymore; go to your physician and let him handle it.

Sometimes, when a situation seems to be very complicated and concerning, it is best not to take matters in your own hands. Give it over to God; He knows exactly how to handle it!

Psalm 46:1
God is our refuge and strength, A very present help in trouble.
