A fever, flu, or a sore throat doesn’t necessarily mean that you should be going to the doctor every time to have it looked at. It would be safe to say that you will only be wasting your time and money for being diagnosed with a mild fever and given a prescription for an expensive medicine just to get it out of your system. Alternative medicine therapies can be easily found in your very own family kitchen — natural herb remedies that you can easily make in the comforts of your own home.
Alternative Health Medicine Facts
It is a proven fact that natural herb remedies are very safe to use. Doctors approve them for their patients to assist in their recovery. You can either purchase an herbal diet supplement from a food health store in your area or you can make your own kitchen remedy.
Keep in mind, however, that not every herbal nutritional supplement sold in the market place today is safe to use. Due to their popularity, there might be scammers out there that replicate a product with no health value in it whatsoever. Consumers need to check the labels carefully to ensure that it came from a reputable pharmaceutical company or better yet, make their own herbal concoction at home using 100% natural ingredients.
Preparation Is Important
Preparation is very important if you plan to make your own home herbal remedies. Make sure that your ingredients are fresh and clean. Ladles and pans should not be made of metal or stainless steel materials to avoid chemicals being included in the mix. You might also want to check out some tips and tricks on how to properly prepare and process your own home herbal remedies for better results.
Anti-Oxidants – Garlic, Onion, And Pepper
Most of the spices found in the kitchen are anti-oxidants. You may have noticed a lot of diet supplements on the market that offer to get rid of nasty toxins from our systems — they are expensive yes, but they do work. You can get the same diet supplements out of your kitchen cupboard without having to dip into your savings. The best part about home herbal remedies is that you don’t have to worry about side-effects — what you take in is 100% natural.
A kitchen remedy made of spices like garlic, onions, and pepper seeds are the best herbal supplements because they are great anti-oxidants. You can include them in your daily meals or you can concoct a health drink out of it. Clean them thoroughly and chop them up. Cook them up in boiling water and let them stew for a few minutes. Drain the herbs extract with a strainer and you will have an anti-oxidant drink ready for your use. (Of course you may need to add a sweetener….like honey…which is a natural anti-oxidant on it’s own)
The Best Medicine – Herbal Ginseng
