    Some Simple Home Remedies

    COLD AND FLU:
    A delicious recipe for a cold or flu! Cut up 6 cloves of garlic and saute in oil, being careful not to let them burn. Add a quart of stock (such as beef), and let it come to a boil for just a few moments. Then lower the heat. Separate two eggs and add the whites to the hot liquid, stirring rapidly. Mix the yolks with two Tbls. vinegar and then pour them in. Add salt and pepper if you want and some croutons, if handy.


    CONSTIPATION (IN ADULTS):

    Take a hot glass of water with 1 tsp. honey and juice of 1/2 a lemon first thing in the morning. Drink 1 litre of water first thing in the morning. Consume approximately 250-300 grams of fresh grapes every day. Simply eat a few liquorices sticks. One of its many properties is that it is a natural laxative.


    CONSTIPATION (IN SMALL CHILDREN):

    Soak 6-8 raisins in hot water (depending on the age). When cool, crush well and strain. When given routinely even to little infants, it helps to regulate bowel movement (however care should be taken - so as not to give too much otherwise the child will get loose motions. Bulk forming vegetables like carrots, radish, spinach, or cabbage should be consumed. Instead of juice always opt for eating the fruit.


    COUGHS AND ASTHMA:

    Make a garlic tincture by placing three to four peeled buds in brandy. Steep this in a dark closet for 14 days. Use several drops at a time, several times a day for coughs or asthma. Garlic is an exceptional cleanser for the body and has ant microbial action similar to other antibiotics.


    DEPRESSION:

    3/4 cup of cooked spinach a day is enough to give dramatic relief from depression if you are deficient in B vitamins.

    Re: Some Simple Remedies

    STOMACH ACIDITY:
    Drink coconut water 3-4 times a day. Have a plateful of watermelon and/or cucumber every hour.


    TOOTHACHE & MOUTH PAIN:

    To ease toothache or other mouth pain, make a tea by boiling 5 grams of fresh peppermint in 1 cup water and adding a little salt. Peppermint is an antiseptic and contains menthol, which relieves pain when applied to skin surfaces.


    VARICOSE VEINS:

    For varicose veins, take 2-3 tsp. black strap molasses daily. This also treats all kinds of circulatory ailments.


    VOMITING AND NAUSEA:

    Sucking a piece of ice controls vomiting. Eat 1/2 tsp. ground cumin seeds. Cinnamon and sliced ginger work by interrupting nausea signals sent from the stomach to the brain. If you are a herbal tea drinker, simply sprinkle cinnamon on the tea and drink. To make ginger tea, simmer a few slices of ginger in hot tea water.


    HICCUPS:

    Drink 1/2 glass water, slowly. Keep a tsp. of sugar in your month and suck slowly. Suck 2-3 small pieces of fresh ginger. This helps in hiccups which keep occurring again and again. OR Take a large mouthful of water with out swallowing, plug both ears, and slowly begin to swallow the water. Unplug your ears and you're hiccup free!


    FATIGUE:

    Take a glass of grapefruit and lemon juice in equal parts to dispel fatigue and general tiredness after a day's work.
