Home Remedies

Sometimes, there’s an easy solution right at your fingertips and you don’t even know it. The following tips may be hard to believe, but a lot of people have tried them and they really work. No company is paying me to do this and every tip is something that the manufacturer does not advertise, but you can save yourself some time and money, not to mention some discomfort with these homespun remedies:

  • gatoradeHeadache? Drinking two glasses [16-20 ounces] of Gatorade [it doesn’t matter which flavor] can relieve headache pain almost immediately without the unpleasant side effects caused by some traditional pain relievers. Not only that . . .  it is also soothing to the stomach.
  • AltoidsThe next time you have a stuffy nose, try chewing one and then one more “curiously strong” Altoids peppermints before going out to buy a nasal spray or some cold remedy that could make you drowsy. You can feel the stuffiness go and your breath will be sweeter, as well.
  • ColgateMinor burns? Go quickly to the bathroom and dab a little Colgate (or other brand) toothpaste on the burn. It makes an excellent soothing salve. It immediately cools the burning sensation and reduces the chances of a blister. Not only that, but you always know where to find it.
  • olive_oilAchy muscles from the flu or from a workout? Finely chop about 1 tablespoon of horseradish root. Then, mix the horseradish with 1 cup of olive oil, mashing the horseradish with a spoon. Allow the mixture to sit for about 30 minutes. Massage in the mixture on your sore muscles for instant relief.
  • vinegar_honeySore throat? Mix one-fourth cup of vinegar with one-fourth cup of honey. Take 1 tablespoonful of the mixture six times (every 2 hours). The vinegar and the honey both kill bacteria-causing germs that brought on the irritation. The honey makes it more palatable, too. Apple cider vinegar is even better.
  • Alka-SeltzerUrinary tract infections? Dissolve 2 Alka-Seltzer tablets in a glass of water and drink it down at the onset of symptoms for an elimination of the infection within hours. Can you believe it? And you thought it was just for your stomach. Alka-Seltzer has never advertised this amazing use of its product.
  • listerineToenail fungus? No need to go out and buy expensive remedies. Try this . . . Simply soak your toes in Listerine mouthwash for 15 minutes every evening for a few days. Toenails will look healthy again and then you can go back to using your mouthwash for your mouth.
  • honeySkin blemishes, pimples? Before bedtime, cover the blemish with a dab of honey and place a Band-Aid over it. Remove the Band-Aid in the morning and – Viola! The blemish should be gone. You can also do the same thing with toothpaste. See which one works better for you.
  • Formula409If you have bees, wasps, hornets or yellow jackets and you don’t have the right insect killer handy, just reach in the cabinet and hit them with a stream of Formula 409 cleaner. They will drop to the ground instantly, so you can step on them or swat them to finish the job.
  • Elmer'sStubborn splinter or burr in the skin? Put a drop of Elmer’s Glue-All over the area and let it dry for an hour or so. When you peel off the glue, the nasty little intruder should come out stuck to the glue. If it doesn’t come out on the first try, just let it dry longer the second time.
  • vinegarBruise easily? Here is how you can speed up the healing process and actually see the reduced discoloration. Just soak a cotton ball [or several cotton balls if the bruise is larger] in white [clear] vinegar and hold it on the bruised area for an hour. Seeing is definitely believing!
  • OatmealArthritis pain? Mix 2 cups of oatmeal [old-fashioned, not quick or instant] with 1 cup water in a bowl. Heat in microwave for 1 minute. Let stand until oatmeal is warm, not hot. Apply to painful area. Wash off in half an hour for soothing relief. Eating 1/2 cup of oatmeal [the old-fashioned kind] every morning can totally relieve arthritis pain within 6 months.

  1. What a super blog. Well done.

  2. Energy Drinks are huge massive business these days but I don’t quite understand it. All they are is soda pop, with some caffeine and stuff. Why not drink some espresso if you just want caffeine.

  3. I understand this may be a little off topic however definately relevant to the main post. I’m a retired math teacher turned beekeeper.

    The way I see it with the ever changing news its hard to keep up to date on current facts. Most of these commenters arent taking into effect the change of the global economy and how much of a different it has on news technologies / medical growth / economic / political issues. But anyways nice read, defiantly enjoyed your post. Found your blog on google search engines btw… most people always wonder how people are finding them.

    To be honest, to put any kind of foundation over a pimple will risk it getting worse if not infected. Wash your face thoroughly with warm water and soap. When you rinse you face, rinse with COLD water, to close open pores. If you don’t want to try that, I would suggest washing your face with lemon juice, it’s acidity will destroy anything unclean on your face, including pimples. =)

  10. Hi, my dad has been fighting kidney stones for over thirty years. He has one now that is really bothering him. He has been to numerous doctors throughout the years, adapted his diet,and other things, but they stones keep coming back. Cranberry juice and/or pills don’t seem to help. He watches his calcium intake, and has even had the stones sonically blasted apart. He didn’t care for braking up the stones however. He said he’d rather just pass a couple of stones than a bunch of pieces of them. I just would like to help him I live in Dallas if anyone knows of a specialist. Any suggestion is a great suggestion, please tell me what you know about kidney stones and helping with the discomfort from them. I appreciate your time.
