There is no telling when your body can give you some major pains and aches. You might wake up with a sore throat all the while getting ready for a major presentation. You might even suffer from indigestion while dressing up for a party. However, there are a few great natural remedies to cure these worries, and in this manner, you would not have to rely on medicinal drugs or the assistance of a doctor. Here are the top five remedies for the following issues:
Take a solution of warm glass of water and six garlic cloves (pressed). Gargle this mixture twice daily for a period of three days. Garlic is a potent antioxidant packed with antimicrobial compounds such as cancer-fighting sulfur and the immune-boosting mineral selenium, which help in fighting bacteria that cause pain. The warm water will help in soothing the inflamed tissue. You should also aim to eat one raw or lightly cooked garlic clove daily.
Researchers have found a compound in dark chocolate called theobromine, which helps in suppressing the persistent cough and is far more effective as compared to codeine. Also, the process has no side effects such as constipation or drowsiness. If you wish to calm down a nagging cough that does not even let you sleep, then you should take about two teaspoons of raw honey mixed with Ester C (500 mg) around 30 minutes before you go to bed. The vitamin C will help in boosting your immune system, especially during the early cough stage.
In case of a fever, you should take sips of linden flower tea. This plays its role in two ways: it helps in stimulating the hypothalamus so that temperature can be controlled in a better manner, and it helps in dilating the blood vessels, which promotes sweating. All you have to do is take one tablespoon of this dried herb in a hot water cup and steep it for about 15 minutes. After this, you can start taking sips of this. Three to four cups should be consumed in a day.
Turmeric has been used to relieve arthritis pain and heartburn, and to reduce inflammation. It’s unclear how turmeric works against pain or inflammation, but its activity may be due to its active ingredient called curcumin, which has anti-inflammatory properties. Use the herb liberally in cooking—it’s a great addition to soups, sauces, stir-fries and vegetables. Turmeric is usually safe to use, but high doses or long-term use may cause indigestion. Also, people with gallbladder disease should avoid using turmeric.
Try this spicy mixture next time your sinuses feel clogged and painful: Combine 1 cup tomato juice, 1 teaspoon chopped fresh garlic, 1/4 teaspoon cayenne powder and 1 teaspoon lemon juice. Warm the mixture and drink slowly.
To cure bad breath, you should take a small cup consisting of acidic lemon juice and gargle with it. This will help in killing bacteria that cause odor. After this, consume a little unsweetened and plain yogurt that consists of lactobacillus bacteria. These bacteria are beneficial or the body as they place the bacteria that cause reeking in the mouth. The combo helps in neutralizing odor and the effect lasts for as long as 12 to even 24 hours.
