A Few Popular Home Remedies

Many years ago and long before our doctors could prescribe medication for practically any type of complaint or disorder, home remedies where used to treat and cure diseases and illnesses.

Over recent years, I'm happy that more and more people are treating their own ailments and illnesses with home remedies rather than contaminating their bodies with prescribed medication from the doctor that often have side effects ranging from mild and minor side effects to some really quite damaging side effects for some people.

Home remedies are usually more effective at treating and curing illnesses than general prescribed medication and home remedies heal naturally with little, or in most cases no side effects.

Most home remedies were created before the world of pharmaceutical and prescription medication was even thought of. For most of the world’s population from many years ago, home remedies and natural healing were the only methods of healing available.

I have outlined below some great home remedies that are still used today.

Onions And Olive Oil For Chest Congestion

This remedy is very old and can start to clear the symptoms almost instantly.

Add some olive oil to a pan and heat. Add chopped onions to the oil and fry the onions for a few minutes or until soft, taking care not to burn the onion. Add ¼ of a teaspoon of curry powder to the pan, stir in well, take off the heat and allow to set.

Eating this mixture will aid chest congestion and mucus build-up and will help you to breathe better. You can do this a few times a day until your chest is congestion free.

Garlic For All Types Of Ailments

Garlic supports the immune system, helping it to function well. Garlic also helps the body to fight off viral and bacterial infections. Garlic also helps to maintain good blood pressure, cholesterol, it protects against heart disease and also assists in the prevention of stomach or colon cancer.

Garlic is great for maintaining good circulation and blood flow because it works as a blood thinner. Incorporating garlic in your meals and/or taking garlic supplements is a major step towards a healthy body.

Licorice For The Common Cold, Coughs And Chest Congestion

Get hold of some licorice root and make it into a cup of tea. Infuse the licorice root in a cup of your favourite herbal tea for around 10 minutes. When the tea mixture has cooled to lukewarm you can drink it for the best results.

You can drink a few cups of this licorice tea to aid a cough or chest congestion. You can also inhale the steam while the tea is cooling which will help to clear your airways and helps to break up the mucus.

In my opinion, the old methods are usually the best and I'm very happy that people are increasingly becoming more interested in natural remedies for health and wellness.
