Natural Health Remedies - If They've Worked For Centuries For Others, Why Not You?

Aug 2, 2008
Prescription drugs are great for some, but for others they are not so great. The side effects from prescription drugs are not always favorable and let's face it, they are expensive. This is why natural health remedies are quickly becoming a replacement for many commonly prescribed drugs. These natural remedies or alternative health supplements not only heal but they also promote wellness too.

These are not only safe alternatives but they also will promote natural healing. They do this by boosting your metabolism, immune system, energy levels and promote an overall sense of well being. Natural herbal remedies have been used throughout Europe and Asia by many with a lot of success for centuries. It really hasn't been that long since natural health remedies have become popular in the US but it is sure taking off with a fury.

You name it and there is an herb or an herbal concoction just waiting to work on it. Remember, many herbs are supposed to be used for preventative measures too.

Let's say that you have corn or calluses. Well you could go to a podiatrist who will cost some big bucks and could end up being pretty painful. Or you could stay home, clean the area with melaleuca, and then put a paste composed of two parts aloe vera gel and one part turmeric on the corn or callous. Once you've done that, you seal it up with a bandage overnight. The next morning simply clean it and give it a soak in some warm water. Finally, rub some mustard oil on it and soon the callous or corn will fall off.

Before you rush in for cataract surgery try this first, mix one or two drops of yellow onion juice with equal parts of honey and put in the eyes twice per day. Some prefer to put drops of fresh coconut juice into the eye followed by warm compresses. Also, make sure that your diet consists of plenty of beta carotene.

Millions are plagued with arthritis and the drugs that are prescribed for arthritis are not always very user friendly when it comes to the side effects. There are natural ways to ease arthritic pain and alleviate the symptoms. First and most important, eliminate all white sugar and chocolate from your diet and well within a week you will feel the pain begin to go away. Eat plenty of parsley and celery everyday. You can also try mixing 1tbsp of apple cider vinegar and 1 tbsp of honey in a glass of water and drink that three times a day with your meals. This will not only help your arthritis but will also help your digestion as well.

As I've said, for every ailment you can name, there is a natural remedy to help you deal with it. It's safer, more cost effective and just a darn good idea.
