From the past few years, a trend of using naturally driven or organic products has been observed. Natural ingredients always help in improving health and skin conditions. That’s why many people try Ayurveda and home remedies to cure sickness.
However, using anything, whether natural or not, without learning about its properties is not wise. Every person has a different body, and it reacts differently to natural ingredients and nutrients too.
Although allergy to natural ingredients is rare, you should take precautions.
Thus, before you use any product or ingredients, it is advisable to consult with your doctor. Especially, if you have any allergies or if you take any medications.
Having said that, let’s look at the natural ingredients that are beneficial for your health!
For hundreds of years, mint has been used as a health remedy. If you have irritable bowel syndrome (a long-term disorder that causes cramps, bloating, gas, diarrhea, and constipation), you can use peppermint oil to treat it. Apart from this, mint can also be used to ease headaches.
Generally, people add peppermint leaves in their food or tea to treat the headache and cold. It is also proven to soothe irritation or itchiness- reducing skin redness.
Nonetheless, mint is not recommended for people having gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), diabetes, and hiatus hernia.
Honey is found in almost every house. This natural sweetener is very effective in treating cough without leaving any drowsy effects. It is especially good for the kids, as they generally don’t like to drink cough syrups.
But not many people know that manuka honey is also beneficial for treating injuries. It has anti-inflammatory properties, which helps in easing pain and inflammation. In fact, due to these benefits, many people have started using medical-grade manuka honey products. These products can be used for first-aid, burn care as well as a skin treatment.
Nonetheless, keep in mind that the honey you get from the market is not the same as medical-grade honey. So, you should be careful when using it to treat injuries or cuts.
The antiseptic properties of turmeric are well known around the world. This spice can also aid numerous health conditions such as joint pain, metabolic syndrome, and inflammation. And surprisingly, there are many preliminary studies to back this up.
A few studies have also proven that consuming a little bit of turmeric every day (in food or in milk) can help prevent colorectal cancer.
In contrast, a high amount of turmeric can induce stomach issues. So, you must keep a check on your consumption.
For thousands of years, ginger has been used in Asian medicine to cure stomach aches, nausea, diarrhea, etc. Moreover, several studies prove its effectiveness in treating nausea and vomiting. It also helps in easing menstruation cramps.
But, ginger might not be suitable for everyone. Some people might experience stomach pain, heartburn, diarrhea, and gas instead. Therefore you must consult your doctor before using it.
Wrapping it up!
All these ingredients are easily found in every house and can help cure the illness. Nonetheless, you do need to take care of the amount being consumed. And, also don’t forget to consult your doctors. As they can diagnose the cause of sickness and provide you better treatment.
