Long before modern medicine people found ways to treat illness. Many of tyhose remedies worked then and still are very effective today.

Natural Home Remedies For Good Health

Have you ever wondered what people did to treat illness and injuries before the advent of what is now modern medicine? Well, they did plenty. Much of it was quite effective and some of it not so much.

Now day's we have a problem of over using medications and treatments that can and in many instances turn out to do more damage then good for us. Take antibiotics for instance. Due to wide spread over use, antibiotics have lost effectiveness and now we have "super Bugs " that have mutated and become very difficult to treat. There is also the problem of drug side effects that at times can be much worse then the condition you are trying to treat. if you pay attention to the pharmaceutical commercials on TV it is amazing that anyone would use the pharmaceuticals being advertised.

I rarely use any medications. that includes over the counter medication as well as prescription drugs. If I become ill or injured, unless it something like a broken bone or If I were to have a major Cardiac event or similar catastrophe I will stick with my Grandmothers old home remedies. They have served me well over my life time and I am much healthier then most folks.

If I develop a respiratory infection, I take crushed Olive Leaf. It generally clears it up in a couple day's. Olive leaf is also great for treating Viruses, retro viruses and a wide range of bacterial infections. I have even used it to to successfully treat an abscessed tooth.

Lemon Balm is an excellent treatment for hypertension it also is used to treat anxiety and ADHD. You just make a mild tea with the leaves and sip it. Lemon Balm can be a soothing sleep aid as well.

Aloe Vera is another natural remedy that Can be used in a variety of ways. It can used topically for cuts, burns, and assorted skin irritations. It can also be taken internally for the benefits of the multiple antioxidants this lovely plant contains.

If you have Gerd or even just a run of the mill upset stomach you will find that ginger root is very effective in calming down the most uncomfortable case of indigestion.

Now Last but not least, I want to talk about Apple Cider Vinegar.This common kitchen staple is wonderful for treating a host of conditions. It can settle an upset stomach by balancing the acid composition of the stomach. Apple cider vinegar is also used to treat persistent dandruff. This handy liquid is also a natural diuretic and is used in weight loss regimes. Another way to use Apple Cider Vinegar is to apply it to area's of skin that are effected by acne. It will help clear up your skin quickly.

There are so many natural home remedies that it would take hours upon hours to go through them all. It is worth the time and effort to research them because many of them are better then the pharmaceutical alternatives and will help you to have a healthy life.

I feel the same as you. I also have many home remedies that I use. I had to smile while I was reading your article because I came across apple cider vinegar. I have some sitting on the counter in the kitchen. I've used it for years. Smiles to you this morning.

@ Carol Roach, For seborrhea you might want to try adeding Tea Tree Oil to you shampoo and also take olive leaf capsules orally. Seborrhea is actually aq yeast and both the afore mentioned remedies are excellent in clearing up yeast.
You can find both at local stores that carry natural health products.

We re using far too many pharmaceuticals today but there is no natural health store where I live. I do have Aloe Vera Juice it can be purchased at Walmart. I remember some of the home remedies that my mother used have nothing written down. I do believe that natural is the best. Excellent share. Blessings.
