Home Remedies & Natural Cures Natural remedies were the primary way to cure disease until medical science progressed and began formulating targeted medications. Many expensive prescription medications are based on common and inexpensive vitamins, minerals, juices, teas and herbs. The remedies listed below have been shown to be useful for various health problems. In fact, niacin and fish oil are available now as a prescription, only in a higher strength than what is available as an over the counter (OTC) medicine. Vinegar: controls appetite and reduces blood sugar. Tea: The tannins in tea are antioxidants and can aid in the prevention of cancer. Fish Oil: beneficial for skin, brain, and heart health. Cinnamon: helps to strengthen the immune system. Ginseng: increases blood flow and energy. Niacin: reduces cholesterol better than some prescription medications. Red Yeast Rice: effective at reducing total cholesterol. Salt: reduces inflammation and kills bacteria. Lemons: potent antioxidant, and full of collagen-forming vitamin C. Herbal Remedies Herbal remedies are also called herbalism, meaning a method to cure illness through the use of plants or plant ingredients. Many herbs have a lengthy background of use as herbal remedies, such as ginger, cranberry, and peppermint. Some examples are below. Aloe vera: useful for the healing of burns. Artichoke: reduces the level of cholesterol in the blood. Calendula: relieves cramps. Cranberry: proven to be effective in treating urinary tract infections (UTI). Echinacea: reduce the duration and severity of the common cold. Ginger: decreases nausea or vomiting. Green tea: slows the development of cancer of the breast. Meadowsweet: anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial uses. Peppermint oil: helpful for irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). Valerian root: calms anxiety and reduces symptoms of insomnia. Willow bark: anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial. Aromatherapy & Essential Oils Aromatherapy uses essential oils to improve your health or well-being. The essential natural oils used in aromatherapy are produced from volatile oils from plants. When selecting oils for aromatherapy, use all-natural, organic oils. Studies have verified the therapeutic qualities associated with pure essential oils, many of which have effective antibacterial and antiviral benefits. Some examples are: Lemon essential oil: helpful for decreasing stress and depression. Lavender essential oil: soothing and good for skincare in general. Tea Tree essential oil: helpful for acne. Lemongrass essential oil: great for cleaning. Use Common Sense...Respect Mother Earth... Never use any product more frequently or in larger quantities as directed. Even water or air can be harmful or even fatal if consumed in excess. Natural cures can interact with prescription medication—or even other home remedies. Make sure that you tell your doctor about all health supplements that you are taking. Home remedies do not and should not substitute for a doctor’s care. Always consult with your Physician on any and all health concerns.

i like to use vinegar in veggies - it says here apple cider vinegar but I've been using a lot of red wine vinegar, I love the benefits of ginger root too, it has more than I first thought. Was reading how the apple cider vinegar and pepper on a brown bag helps the chest for those complaints, these ingredients are hot - the fire in the pepper, the acid in the vinegar, so hot things draw things out of the body then?

A good warning system for heart disease is the presence of high blood cholesterol in the system. To help prevent this is to follow a lifestyle which includes eating a diet high in fruits and vegetables, maintaining your ideal weight, getting enough exercise while avoiding processed foods, junk foods and hydrogenated oils.

Another way is to add fiber to your diet, especially water-soluble fiber - such as the pectin found in apple cider vinegar. Water-soluble fiber soaks up water, which adds bulk, and interacts with your body, and also keeps on working longer than non water-soluble fiber.

Fiber also soaks up fats and cholesterol in the body and then is excreted instead of being reabsorbed.

Non water-soluble fiber soaks up moisture in the body, but cannot interact with the body. The amino acids contained in apple cider vinegar have also shown promise in neutralizing some of the harmful oxidized LDL cholesterol.


It has been found that the pH factor (the acidity factor) of the body becomes a bit more alkaline prior to a cold or flu striking you down. When you take apple cider vinegar it helps to rebalance the acid level of your body.

Another remedy for colds and flu, and said to be specifically beneficial for chest complaints during the winter, is to soak a piece of brown paper with apple cider vinegar, and to place pepper on the one side of the paper. You then tie the paper, pepper side down, on to your chest and leave on for 25 - 30 minutes.
