These “recipes for relief” sound like things my grandmother use to do for pain. I seem to remember something about vinegar and its many uses. I have a list of 10 home remedies that work. Most of them seem very familiar!
1. Chili pepper seed:used as a rub, apply directly to skin and/or aching joints.
2. Ginger relieves nausea. Many Asian cultures incorporate it into their diets to aid digestion.
3. A neti pot, a small pot with a long spout, may help reduce sinus inflammation.
4. Sleeplessness may find relief by inhaling lavender fragrance.
5. Plant compounds like soy have estrogen-like effects that may ease hot flashes.
6. A humidifier may help ward off colds by increasing the moisture in the air where you live.
7. Vinegar is said to reduce nail fungus. Soak feet for 15 to 20 minutes in mixture of one part vinegar, two parts warm water. Rinse feet and pat dry when done.
The Mayo Clinic Book of Home Remedies also recommends you keep certain items on hand for general and minor first-aid issues, including the following are items you should keep on hand as references:
8. Bandages of various sizes, gauze, paper or cloth tape, antibacterial ointment and antiseptic solution to deal with cuts.
9. Cold packs, burn spray and antiseptic cream to treat burns.
10. Aids such as thermometer, aspirin (for adults only) and acetaminophen for children to treat aches, pain and fever.
11. Cold packs, elastic wraps and finger splints for sprains, strains and fractures. Remember, however, that serious infuries require treatnebt from a medical professional.
