5 Natural Remedies for 5 Common Ailments You Can Find In Your Kitchen
Copyright©2005 Angie Lewis
Below are just a few of the
natural remedies I have tried on my husband, three sons, friends, family and
myself. They really work! Open your mind to trying the herbs and spices that God
has given us in their natural form. These healing remedies cannot hurt you
because they are not processed into chemicals but are natural and absolutely
safe to use.
Next time your child has an
earache blend up three tablespoons olive oil with one clove of garlic in your
blender until smooth. Have your child lie down with the hurt ear face up. With a
cue tip or a bulb syringe put two or three drops into the ear, letting it drip
down into the canal. Have a wet
washcloth handy incase any of it drips down onto your child’s neck.
Make sure your child stays
lying down while the oil and garlic mixture drains down into the ear canal
completely, about a half hour or so. After about five or ten minutes your child
will tell you that it tickles inside their ear that means it is working. Do this
remedy three times a day or when your child complains of pain.
The oil cleans out the earwax and the garlic heals the infection.
No more earache, no more
doctors! You can now cure the common earache your self! Amazing, isn’t it?
Have a toothache?
This solution is only temporary to ease the excruciating pain of a
toothache. I know how painful a toothache can be and I ran across this old
kitchen remedy years ago when it was too late to rush to the dentist.
Blend up about two
tablespoons whole cloves in the blender until blended into powder form. Mix this
with 1-tablespoon olive oil to make a paste. With your finger, dab directly on
the infective tooth and gum area, wait 5 minutes. You will be so relieved you
tried this natural remedy. Absolutely unbelievable that it really works! The
properties in the clove actually numb your gums!
This remedy only works if
you do it BEFORE you start to feel sick. If there is a stomach virus going
around the school or in your home and you’re thinking that you might be next
to get this awful virus, eat a bunch of raw garlic. Yeah, that’s right. Most
people think I’m crazy when I tell them to do this but I know it works. I do
it myself every time I know there is a stomach virus going around.
Eat two good sized or three
small cloves of garlic every four hours and you will not get the stomach virus.
This will only work by eating the real garlic. Taking the pill form will not
work! You might smell like garlic
for while but this all natural and safe remedy will also ward off any vampires
coming to your home. Your spouse might not kiss you for the day either. But it
sure beats getting terribly ill to your stomach for 24 or 48 hours! Garlic to
This method is an absolute
miracle cure! You will love its properties. Do you have acid in your stomach
after eating? Throw away the Tums and Rolaids because they just make your acid
worse in the long run. Try this. Mix 1-tablespoon powdered ginger with warm
water in an 8 ounce coffee cup. Sip it down slowly. You will see that this
remedy works instantly.
I call this the ginger tea
remedy for acid reflux. Ginger is a safe and natural spice that can’t harm
your system like those other antacids can. You will be astonished that this
really works! You can also buy the whole ginger root and blend the root into a
powder to get the same results. You will be flabbergasted that ginger can get
rid of your acid. It’s safe,
cheap and miraculous!
Senna Leaf Herbal Tea is so
much better for you than those other over the counter medications. Senna leaf is
an all-natural herb and it taste good too.
I was absolutely amazed when this worked so well. Brew it like any other
tea by steeping in hot water for 5 minutes. You can add honey or lemon to the
tea if you like.
There are several different
brands you can buy that have Senna Leaf Herb in it. I have always used “Smooth
Move” available from Wal-Mart or even your local grocery store. No matter what
brand you decide to use, read the ingredients and make sure that Senna Leaf is
the active ingredient. You will be
relieved that you decided to try a more natural approach.
Good luck and great health!
