3 Natural Remedies That Everyone Should Know

By Genevieve Cunningham

In today’s world, we tend to reach straight for modern medicine when we’re feeling less than our best. Headache? Get the medicine! Sore muscles? Get the medicine! While there is certainly a need and a place for modern medicine, it’s not always necessary for every single ailment. Take a look at these three natural remedies that everyone should know and be able to use in their home.

Soothing a Sore Throat

There are two great options for soothing a sore throat, and both of them stink … literally! The first is to sip on a concoction of hot water, a dash of honey, and a spoonful of apple cider vinegar. It won’t taste great, and the initial swallow might sting, but it will comfort the throat quickly and leave you with some relief. Your second option is to mix some garlic in a glass of water and gargle twice a day. This may relieve your sore throat, and it can also serve as a natural antibiotic, killing germs in your throat at the same time.

Navigating Nausea

There’s nothing worse than a stomach that won’t settle down. To quell this feeling, all you have to do is open your cupboard. Heat some water, steep some peppermint tea, and sip all day long. The peppermint calms the stomach by relaxing the gastrointestinal muscles. In a pinch, you can suck on a peppermint candy, but if you have the chance, a glass of warm peppermint tea will bring the most benefit.

Comforting Chapped Skin and Lips

If the weather has your lips or skin chapped, you can soften and protect your body with a little bit of olive oil. Olive oil is packed full of antioxidants and has anti-inflammatory properties that help your skin and lips heal. You’ll probably feel a little bit better immediately, but it might take a day or two to completely heal. Just keep reapplying to the afflicted area so that your skin doesn’t dry out and crack all over again.

While there are many instances when a trip to the doctor or other professional medical care may be necessary, sometimes it’s as easy as searching through your kitchen. With the right knowledge, you can save your health in a natural way. Everyone should know these tips, use them regularly, and learn all you can about enjoying your natural health just in case you need it.
