Alternative Health Home Remedies

Nov 9, 2007
Common sense may tell you that if you have a small medical problem, you should go to the doctor. Few people realize that there are a host of solution to life's little health problems that they can find around their house! In this article, we'll discuss some alternative health methods of solving simple health problems around the house.

- Are you experiencing unexplained back pain? There are some common problems that cause back pain that you may not realize. For example, wearing high-heeled shoes can cause an arching of the back that can cause back pain. A small amount of non-strenuous exercise can help to get your back's muscles back to working order. Try swimming with a low intensity to help ease your back pain. Putting ice on inflamed back muscles may also ease the tension, as well as ensuring that the mattress that you are sleeping on isn't causing unnecessary stiffness.

- The common cold is something that we've all experienced. While there's no cure, there are some home remedies that can help you to ease your suffering. Vitamin C supplements can cause you to get over your cold in less time than normal. Zinc lozenges have also shown to have some efficiency when it comes to getting over a cold. Also, chicken soup can help to ease cold symptoms, and garlic has some antiviral properties that may assist you in getting over the cold.

- Feeling nauseous? Proponents of home remedies recommend that you prepare a tea with ginger in it, or purchase some ginger in capsule format. If you can't find any ginger, ginger ale may act in the same way. Chamomile and peppermint tea have also been said to help to reduce feelings of nausea.

- Sore throats can be a real pain, especially if you have to communicate a lot in the workplace. Garlic is a recommended supplement when it comes to easing a sore throat. Also, you may benefit from drinking a glass of hot water with honey and the juice of one lemon in it. Gargling with warm salt water is another method commonly used to treat a sore throat in the home.

If you're experiencing serious pains, you may want to go to a doctor. However, if you've just got a small problem, you may find that these alternative home solutions may be of merit to solving the issue on your own.
