Natural remedies have worked for thousands of years. While sometimes you need the strong stuff behind the pharmacy counter to get you back to your best quickly, it shouldn’t be your first port of call. Having your kitchen stocked with the best home remedies could help you to fight flu, warts, and more, without breaking the bank. Here are the top four ingredients that we think everyone should have in their home.
Ginger is a powerful root that has been used for many years across many cultures to help health issues. It is proven to relieve sickness and stomach cramps but it is best for the modern flu. Mix some ginger with lemon and honey and have it with hot water. Drink it at the start or end of your day and it will defeat any flu that you are starting to feel.
Saltwater is fantastic for sore throat, gums or teeth. Dissolve half a teaspoon of salt into warm water and gargle three times a day. It will quickly ease whatever is causing you pain.
While you can pay a high price for wart treatments in a pharmacy or get them professionally removed, the solution may already be in your kitchen. A number of studies have shown that vinegar is as successful as other more expensive treatments. Soak some cotton in vinegar and dab the wart. The vinegar is acidic and is toxic to the viral wart cells.
While brown rice is a healthy carb to eat with your meals, we are recommending something different here. If you have been suffering from diarrhea you are likely low in electrolytes. Cook some brown rice in twice the usual amount of water required. Wait for the water to cool, and drink it. The water is high in electrolytes and will ease your issues.
