Household Remedies...Don't Just Take A Pill

Updated on October 5, 2015

We invest a lot of money in so many things for the sake of a cold or to cure pain. The media has distracted us from the things which matter most and we have unknowingly allowed ourselves to be programed into thinking that they have the answer to what ails us. Commercials flood the TV with their advertisements of new remedies and cure alls. if something ails you just take a pill, and if that's not enough you can always go to hospital and create a bill that you can't afford to pay, especially when there may be something that you could have done at home.That is not to say that doctors are not needed because they are. What I am saying is that there are things that we can do for ourselves just by going into the kitchen to find the remedy to that which ails us. Grand-Mother was right.................

One thing that most homes have in the cabinet is baking soda, it has more uses than most people give credit or know. When I was a kid a lot of people would use it in place of toothpaste or under their arms in place of deodorant.But it's uses don't end there. It can also be used as an antacid to relieve heart burn or indigestion.And let us not forget one of my favorites and that is as a laundry booster for very soiled or stinky clothes.

Brown rice is good for PMS relief. The vitamin B6 contained in the rice is a diuretic which helps relieve the body of the excess water weight and bloating that some women go through. Brown rice also contains pantothenic acid, which can help to relieve stress.

Celery is high in vitamin C and has been shown to help prevent tumor growth, so do include raw celery in your diet; it's not just decoration.Celery has long been used in Chinese medicine as a blood pressure lowering remedy.Because of the high amounts of vitamin C it also acts as an antioxidant which helps reduce the severity of inflammatory conditions such as asthma, osteoarthritis, and rheumatoid arthritis.

Have you ever wanted to relieve arthritis pain, then just rub vinegar on the infected area.Another way to treat the arthritis is to add 2 teaspoons of apple cider vinegar to a glass of water and drink before each meal, it is said that it will take about 3 weeks for you to feel the difference.To remove corns make a poultice from a shredded piece of bread soaked in 1/4 cup vinegar.Let it sit for about 1/2 hour and then apply to corn and tape in place.If corn does not peel off in the morning then reapply another night or until desired effects have been reached.

And let us not forget about baby; all moms know what it's like to have a teething child. The painful tears from baby as their new teeth try to make entry into the world. Just go to the kitchen and get some ground cinnamon, dab a little on your fingers and rub it on baby's gums. It will neutralize the pain and baby will find some relief.

Peanut Butter is not just good because of the fiber and protein that it contains but it is also good for gallstones, women who eat least 1 ounce of nuts, peanuts or peanut butter each week have 25% lower risk of developing gallstones. According to the Journal of Neurology and Psychiatry, the niacin contained in peanuts, when eaten regularly, provides protection against Alzheimer's disease.

We can go on and on about all of the healthy effects of the fruit and vegetables that the powers that be have placed before us, but they do no good unless we make the effort to learn about them and include them in our daily lives. I can tell you that garlic kills bacteria in the body or that mushrooms help to prevent tumors; I can even tell you that grapefruit is good in preventing breast cancer by detoxifying the very compoud that causes breast cancer. But what good will it do if we do not make sure that we include natures cures in our daily lives. If we intend on living healthy lives in our old age than we must take charge now. This list is far from being complete, but with your help we can pass the word on.
