Healthy Kitchen Remedies

Believe it or not, relief from various ailments doesn’t really necessitate a trip to the emergency room of a hospital. Sometimes, the kitchen can actually hold some quick remedies for the heath challenged. Here are a few:

Sore throat.
Forget the drops and the mints. Instead, get some ginger, boil in hot water and drink. Ginger’s slightly antiseptic qualities will help heal sore throats. If you want more than some gingery-flavor in your ginger tea, add some cinnamon to it or boil the ginger with some bay leaf. Enjoy!

Bruises and fevers.
Break fevers by washing the patient with a mixture of water and vinegar. Although, difficult to explain as to how vinegar works exactly, this is a very old cure that our grandmothers employ. Vinegar is also useful for alleviating bruises, it seems the acidity of vinegar, helps relieve the physical affect of bruising while speeding-up the healing process. Our take: vinegar may have antiseptic properties, while its application to the body maybe similar to touch therapy.

Bum stomach.
Hold the attapulgite just yet. Bum stomachs are just as much a result of stress as anything else. If you feel tired and frazzled because of a bout of what some people call a “Delhi Belly,” just reach for a cool sport drink from the fridge. The sport drink will not only alleviate “deep thirst” but will restore much needed electrolytes as well. The same sports drink (and its variants) can help relieve headaches as well.

My achy, break-y muscles?
Old age aside, some of us experience muscle pain from time to time. To help bring relief to sore muscles, get some olive oil, add mint and massage the affected parts. If you don’t have mint or olive oil, get an empty bottle (with stopper), fill with hot water and roll it on the affected areas. The heat from the warm water will soothe tired and aching muscles.
