Natural Remedies You Might Not Have Thought Of
When I was perusing the internet yesterday I came across an article from IVillage.com that I quite enjoyed. It talked about several different natural remedies for healing and taking care of your health, and some of them were already known to me, others were not.
Here are two that intrigued me, because I already understood the value of them in my own life, but had never really thought of them as a Natural Remedy.
“Heal injuries with music
A review of 14 studies found that patients who listened to one hour of soothing music daily recovered from injuries more quickly. They also required 25 percent fewer painkillers. The reason: Music lowers your production of damaging stress hormones, plus it relaxes arteries, improving the flow of nutrient-rich blood to injured tissues. “Music touches, and heals, almost every cell in the body,” says Mitchell L. Gaynor, M.D., director of Gaynor Integrative Oncology in New York. “It’s my first pick when I’m feeling under the weather.”
Kill viruses with honey
Unpasteurized honey is packed with natural antibiotics and healing enzymes, and nibbling it when you’re ill can cut three days off your sickness, say University of Illinois researchers. It also kills the bugs that cause sinus infections and other cold complications,” says Mark Moyad, M.D., director of preventive medicine at the University of Michigan Medical Center. “I take two teaspoons daily when I’m sick, and it soothes my sore throat, reduces coughing and speeds my recovery — something over-the-counter cold meds never did.”
As a child growing up, my mother and her mother had all types of folk remedies. She used cold potatoes on the forehead to draw out a fever. Honey and lemon in green tea for sore throats. Gargling with warm water, mixed with salt and vinegar was another remedy for killing cold germs. And of course there is that old standby, homemade chicken soup for a bad cold.
Hope this makes you feel better!!
