There are times when we are not feeling our best, but we are not quite sick enough to go to the doctor. Here are some great tips to help you feel a lot better.
Tip Number 1:
Do you suffer from heart burn or indigestion at night? A great way to rid yourself of these types of pains is to lie on your left side. The reason that this works so well is because acid reflux is the most common form of after dinner indigestion. Because your stomach is on the left side of your abdomen, sleeping on the left side will help to keep the acid where it belongs – in your tummy.
Tip Number 2:
Did you know that you can eat a marshmallow if you have a sore throat? In the days of the Pharaohs, they used the root of the marshmallow plant to treat sore throats and this remedy still works today. It is the gelatinous fibre in marshmallows called mucilage that soothes the mucous membranes and protects the from further inflammation and bacteria.
Tip Number 3:
If you have a really bad hangover when you wake up, eat a slice of toast with honey. The potassium and sodium found in the bread will help you cope with the alcohol’s toxins quicker, and honey has fructose which helps the body to break down the excess alcohol.
Tip Number 4:
If you battle to fall asleep at night, why not try eating carbohydrates prior to going to bed? Eating things like bread, bagels or crackers immediately before bedtime increases the levels of serotonin in your system, which is a brain chemical that will promote sleep.
Tip Number 5:
Do you suffer from plantar’s warts? A great way to get rid of them is to put garlic directly on the wart. Mash a clove of garlic into a pulp and smear directly onto the wart before going to bed. Cover with a small plaster and remove and clean of in the morning. If you do this every night, your wart should disappear in about ten days.
Tip Number 6:
Always keep apple cider vinegar on hand, because it should be the first thing you turn to when you get bitten or stung by an insect. Dab the apple cider vinegar on with some cotton wool and a little water. Wrap it in gauze and tape it closed. The vinegar dries out the affected areas and eradicates the poison.
There is no need to spend loads of money on doctors bills when you have millions of natural remedies at your finger tips.
