4 Transformational Natural Health Remedies For The Body
By : Meghan Belnap
It’s undeniable: the earth has scores of secrets for keeping optimum health. Natural remedies have existed since the beginning of time (naturally) and recent decades have shown a rise in holistic healthcare and herbalism. In fact, chances are you have several effective cures in your kitchen right now. Read on to discover 4 natural health remedies that will transform life as you know it!
1. Ginger has an incredibly long list of perks. Regarded in Traditional Chinese Medicine as a “heaty” herb (meaning it raises internal temperature), ginger is commonly used around the world to treat the common cold, headaches, nausea, and motion sickness, to name only a few. You don’t have to be ill to use ginger, of course; it tastes great as a tea or thrown into stew and holds just as many benefits when you’re healthy as when you’re sick.
2. Aloe Vera. An easy plant to grow, aloe’s juicy leaves and soothing gel are often used to treat burns (from the oven and sun alike), abrasions, and canker sores. Some use it to cool irritated acne, moisturize the skin, or condition the hair. Aloe’s healing properties are anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, and pain reducing. This plant just doesn’t stop!
3. Apple Cider Vinegar (honey optional) has been used since ancient times as a tonic to restore balance in the body as well as treat stomach and joint pain. Nowadays its uses have expanded to maintaining healthy, flawless skin and as a powerful aid for weight loss due to its reputation as an appetite suppressant. Since it has a very potent smell and can irritate sensitive throats, dilute it in hot water with honey to sweeten (especially if you’re trying it for the first time).
4. Agate Geodes are a divine addition to any household, generating both balance and harmony in and outside of the home. In addition to their glimmering beauty, the value of these stunners is priceless and far more than skin deep, even helping to align your chakras and ensure good energy in your space. Each agate geode has a different numeric vibration and is associated with different elements and astrological signs. Browse through the assorted geodes offered on Crystals By Nature and choose the one (or several) that best suits you!
As you can see, natural health is not entirely out of reach. It’s actually all around you. What are some of your favorite remedies from nature?
