Home Remedies And Cures
There are an incredible amount of natural home remedies available to you, medicines which can be made at home from natural ingredients such as fruits, vegetables and herbs. These medicines have been catching a lot of attention because they are simple, incur no side effects, use no toxic or harsh no chemicals, are cheap and yet can be even more effective than some of the most commonly used (toxic) pharmaceutical drugs on offer. They other benefit of self treatment is the sheer pleasure many people have from being able to cure themselves!
People have been using home remedies for as long as people have been on this earth, so don’t let any doctor tell you that “self treatment is not scientific or evidence based” Nonsense. Do you really value your health? Of course you do, and it is impossible to put a price tag on your and your family’s health. Obviously not, if anything, your health or that of your family is invaluable.
Long gone are the days when families had a book at home on self-treatments, and today the pharmaceutical drug laboratories reign. Conventional medicine relies on synthetic chemicals to “cure” illness, and this kind of treatment is considered the best. Apart from the forbidding cost, the side effects that the body has to deal with cannot be ignored. This realisation has dawned and people today are going back to natural remedies that humans have been using for thousands of years.
Your kitchen is a great place to start for natural home remedies. It is truly amazing how many ailments can be cured with simple remedies made right there in your kitchen at little to no cost, without side-effects. Sounds too good to be true? Well, it is just a little awareness and understanding that you need to make the best out of it. Read-up a bit on natural remedies to equip yourself to treat an earache, diarrhoea, a sore throat or perhaps your toddler who is rather cranky with colic.
Dr. Bernard Jensen’s Home Remedies
Dr. Bernard Jensen was an internationally renowned food scientist, author and doctor of chiropractic medicine. I learned my Iridolody skills from Dr. Jensen’s work in the 1980’s. Iridology has undeservedly received much bad publicity from orthodox medicine, and in particular from the scientific fraternity who are quick to dismiss iridology as “quackery”. The may like to look at their own diagnostic and treatment methods before the ridicule alternative methods. Dr. Jensen was a true inspiration to many natural medicine practitioners and had a particular interest in digestive health with respect to the colon. Here are a few home remedy tips from Dr. Jensen’s book entitled “Vital Foods For Total Health” from the 1970’s.
Feeding a Fever
Eat nothing during a chill or fever. Drink water or grapefruit juice until the fever has subsided, all the pain is gone, and food is desired. Then only eat fruits and vegetables for a few days.
Your tongue is a mirror reflecting the condition of your intestinal tract. When your tongue is coated it shows that the intestinal tract is in a state of acute elimination and is overloaded with toxic materials. A change of diet is required and a change of living habits should be started.
After you have eaten garlic or onions you can free your breath of the odors by chewing vigorously a small amount of fresh, uncooked parsley. Be sure to swallow the chewed parsley after thoroughly chewing. Bad breath has formed the basis of thousands of lines of advertising matter. Its technical name is now a household word, but parsley alone is the safe, satisfactory remedy to be used in an emergency.
Nervous people will find that vegetables are more soothing generally to their nerves than fruits. Drink more vegetable juices than fruit juices until the nerves become more steady. Citrus fruits are the fruit juices however that especially can tend to keep the nerves on edge. However, this should be temporary, as no healing is complete without fruits in the diet.

Home Remedies For Urinary Tract Infection
Home Remedies For Urine Infections
Isn’t it annoying, you need to go to the bathroom yet again? Read more about UTIs here. And when you go, it burns and stings. Within a half an hour you need to go yet again, with the same results. This is what happens with a UTI (Urinary Tract Infection). Bacteria enter the urethra (urine tube) that goes up into the bladder, and start to multiply. My mother was forever getting UTIs, particularly when she got into her 70’s. If the infection travels into the urethra, and sets up shop there then it is called urethritis, but if the bacterial infection spreads and travels further up into the bladder then it is called cystitis, or bladder infection. And unless that bladder infection is treated properly, the infection may travel further afield and into the kidneys where it it is called pyelonephritis.
Although a woman may have a UTI without really knowing about it, it is something which she will commonly have an understanding of, because the signs and symptoms include pain and a burning sensation when urinating, urinating frequently, and passing just tiny amounts of urine painfully which may include a little blood even.
