Natural Herbal Remedies

Aug 17, 2007
Herbs have been used for tens of thousands of years to cure all kinds of aches, pains and ailments. Just like people did a long time ago, you can safely treat a wide variety of things with herbs or herbal extracts you can find in your backyard, at health food stores or online. Here is a list of common herbs used to remedy everything from burns to headaches.

Aloe vera
Aloe Vera is perhaps best known for being an excellent sunburn treatment with superb skin revitalizing properties. Some of its lesser-known uses include aiding the digestive system and maintaining energy levels. It is also commonly taken as a vitamin and mineral supplement because it is chock full of great vitamins that you need. Aloe is typical sold in gel form for use on skin and sunburns and in a drinkable form for use as a dietary supplement.

Hawthorn berries
Hawthorn berry is well known for the positive effects it has on the circulatory system and heart. This berry is packed with vitamin C and vitamin B and is typically taken over a lengthy period to reap all of the great benefits it has to offer. Most health food stores offer it in liquid and capsule form though the body much more easily absorbs the liquid form.

Milk thistle
Milk Thistle is a powerful antioxidant that aids the liver and has been proven by many studies to help all liver related problems including alcohol related liver disease. The important compound in milk thistle, silymarin, can be hard for the body to absorb and is most effective when taken in the strongest form available.

Suma
Suma is also known as a form of ginseng from Brazil and has been used traditionally for a variety of reasons including: fighting fatigue, supporting the immune system and helping to stay stress free. Suma is often consumed as a tea, but is also readily available as a supplemental pill.

Ginger
Ginger is an excellent remedy for upset stomachs and has long been used as a remedy for pregnant women experiencing morning sickness or nausea. It is also commonly used to treat inflammation and arthritis pain. Ginger is often consumed as a tea or other beverage to treat nausea. However, it has been used in cuisines around the world as a flavor additive.

Black cohosh
Black cohosh has been the subject of many successful studies proving that it helps menopausal women reduce the severity of their symptoms including reducing the effect of hot flashes. Its healthy chemicals help regulate and balance a woman's hormones so she does not experience the normal intensity of menopausal symptoms. Typically, black cohosh is taken as a supplemental pill that is available at most health food stores.
