There are medical home remedies for just about anything you can think of. Now you may just be in the habit of running to the doctor every time something is wrong and some times that is ok but, maybe next time you should stop and try to fix whatever it is on your own. You could save some money and get better relief than having your doctor prescribe something.
Some people swear by medical home remedies while others will not give them the time of day. There are so many things that you can find around your house to treat annoying little things. Let’s start with something simple like back pain. Now assuming your mattress is not the cause of your back pain you can get some relief by doing some simple stretches or even some strengthening exercises to give your back more stability should alleviate some pain.
Swimming is a good idea too. Not only is swimming great exercise you will be taking some strain off of your joints and back just being in the pool. That should make you feel better right off the bat. Ice is great for reducing any inflammation you may be experiencing as well. Inflammation is a terrible cause of pain, get rid of the inflammation, get rid of the pain.
Some of these home remedies may be a big DUH but sometimes we all need reminders of them can so we save a huge doctor bill.
The common cold is a big one that people need reminders for. If you feel a cold coming on then amp up the amount of vitamin C you take or start taking some if you don’t. Echinacea in pill form or as a tea can be a great help in reducing the severity of the common cold. Some would argue the exact opposite but I have had personal experience with this. Especially with the tea.
Remember back when you got sick as a little person and grandma would come over to take care of you? She would bring ginger ale for your upset stomach, right? Ginger in any form is good for an upset tummy. Other ways to treat you tummy are with peppermint and Chamomile tea. You can drink peppermint tea as well but it may just be good enough to eat a peppermint candy to ease your stomach discomfort.
Sore throats can be eased with a mixture of salt and warm water used as a gargle. You can do this once an hour if you need it. Use about a half teaspoon of salt to four ounces warm water. make the water as warm as you can stand it, gargle and hold it on the back of your throat for as long as you can before spitting it out.
What about another common ailment most everyone experiences at one time or another, heartburn? If the ginger ale won’t do anything for the heartburn you can always try drinking a combination of baking soda and water. Make sure the water is not too hot or too cold. Too cold water may make your stomach cramp up and believe me a stomach that is cramping up hurts like the dickens. Also do not drink the mixture if the baking soda is not completely dissolved. Remember these medical home remedies when you need an inexpensive fix to a minor problem.
