“Take Control of Your Health Naturally”

Holistic herbal solutions can also be defined as or simply called natural home remedies.  There are more ways than you can possible think of to help yourself be naturally healthy or healthier.  I am not saying that you should totally dismiss you primary care physician but I am saying that you can possibly visit him MUCH less.  Taking care of yourself naturally is a lifestyle but once you make those changes it will be well worth the efforts as you will wonder why you didn’t do it sooner!  Holistic herbal solutions can be incorporated into you life little by little as you find out what works for you.  Soon your world will be a much calmer, happier, healthier place to be!

  • Try relaxing magnesium (200 to 400 mg) to reduce the muscle tension and spasms.  Make sure the supplement contains at least 200 mg of active elemental magnesium.  This is more a preventative measure so if you know when you usually get headaches you can take this the day before.
  • The 37 g of carbs in a medium potato can ease a tension headache by upping serotonin levels, as long as you keep the fat and protein below 2 g

 

Heartburn

  •  Chamomile Tea: Steep 2 teaspoons of the Chamomile in 10 ounces of very hot water for 20 minutes, covering the cup to keep the essential oils in the water.

Sprains

  • Contrast hydrotherapy – a quick blast of hot, then a quick blast of cold to get the blood pumping through the muscle tissues again.  30 seconds hot, 20 seconds colds. Alternate three times ending with cold.

 

Stained Teeth

  • Crush a few fresh strawberries into mush and mix with a pinch of stain-removing baking soda and enough water to make a paste. Apply the mixture to a soft-bristled toothbrush and polish for a few minutes once every 3 or 4 months.  More than that could remove enamel.
  • Rinse mouth with hydrogen peroxide.  Be careful as to not swallow any.  Your mouth will keep foaming.  Keep spitting it out.  Then brush teeth as usual.  Do this once every 3 to 4 months.  More than that could remove enamel.

 

Stress/Anxiety

  • Eat a banana.  A banana contains 30% of the day’s vitamin b6 which helps the brain produce serotonin.

 

Ulcers

  • Eat Cabbage:  sulforaphane, a powerful compound in cabbage, kills the bacteria that causes gastric and peptic ulcers before it can get to your stomach and may even help inhibit the growth of gastric tumors.

 

Yeast infection

  • Garlic contains essential oils that can inhibit the growth of the fungus which is the culprit in the pain, itch, and vaginal discharge of yeast infections.  Include garlic in sauces, salad dressings, and marinades.
  • Thyme, cloves, and even the essential oils from oranges are also effective fungicides.  Include these in sauces, salads dressings, and marinades.

    Definitely bookmarking your webpage! I have always liked to go for natural remedies compared to all the chemical products offered at the doctor or by the pharmacists. Since ancient days we are born in nature and nature’s product should supplement our constitution most, at least that is how I feel!

    • Angela

    Some really good suggestions there, and many I’d not heard before, and I’m big into natural remedies. Do you think peppermint essential oil would work for increased nail growth too?

    • Angela

      I am sure the oil itself would help with dry cracking skin and nails however, I know that hemp oil is known for its healing properties when it comes to skin, hair and nails. It contains antioxidants that fight against aging as well.

    Yes! I love these remedies and have been compiling some of my own in the past couple of years. Another good one for decongestion is to smell coffee grounds which also works for headaches or if you have a weird smell stuck in your nose. I’ve learned so much from this article and thanks so much for sharing.

      Thanks for the tip!  I did not know that!   I knew coffee cleared the smell from your nose but I didn’t know it worked on congestion or headaches.   I will definitely try it.  I get headaches quite often.  I love getting new tips.  Fabulous!
