Instead of having a cabinet filled with pills, syrups, and fake vitamins that are so hard on your beautiful body, create a natural medicine cabinet that is filled with life, health, and effective treatment to any sickness or trouble that may suddenly sneak in.
I love natural remedies. One, because they work better and faster than man made chemicals, and two, because they bring life and health to the body without the side effects of over the counter medication. The more these drugs are taken, the more you will need them.
On a brighter note, no drugs are needed for your concerns. There is always a solution that does not involve filling your body with man made nonsense. Our creator purposefully gave different healing properties to different foods and herbs that will heal, nourish, and bring life to your body.
While there are literally hundreds of different natural remedies, below are my top five powerhouses that are effective on multiple levels.
1. Elderberry Syrup: For sore throat and the flu I love elderberry syrup. Elderberry is anti-viral, contains high levels of flavonoids and antioxidants, has cell-protecting components, soothes sore throats, and supports the immune system and respiratory system. The elderberry is effective in fighting viruses, such as the flu, and upper respiratory infections. According to Prescription for Herbal Healing, “a clinical study of elderberry found that it cured 90 percent of flu infections within seventy-two hours. In the same trial, patients receiving a placebo needed six days.” This is also effective as a cough syrup.
2. Activated Charcoal: For food poisoning, intestinal illness, vomiting, diarrhea, or ingestion of toxins, activated charcoal will fix you up. It absorbs most harmful toxins, chemicals and poisons before they can harm the body.
3. Apple Cider Vinegar: Have this on hand at all times. It is cheap, easy to buy, and can detoxify and heal the body fast. All you have to do is add it to water. For cold, flu, or even low energy, I use apple cider vinegar as a fast, easy, and effective treatment. It also helps with digestive troubles, indigestion, and food poisoning. Taken in a dose of 1 teaspoon per 8 ounces of water every hour, it helps shorten the duration of any type of illness.
4. Epsom Salts: Epsom salts are extremely effective for sore muscles, relaxing the nervous system, curing skin problems, soothing back pain and aching limbs, healing cuts, treating cold and congestion, relieving constipation, and drawing toxins from the body. Dissolved in water, it can also be a good soak to help remove splinters.
Studies have shown that magnesium and sulfate are both readily absorbed through the skin, making Epsom salt baths an easy and ideal way to enjoy the amazing health benefits. For a detoxifying bath, at least once weekly add two cups of Epsom Salt to the water in a bathtub and soak for 10 minutes.
5. Master Health Tonic: If you don’t want any of the above and are looking for a ‘one-solution-to-all’ kind of treatment, simply make the master health tonic and kill any illness fast. The creator of this natural solution, Dr. Schultz explains, “This tonic is extremely powerful because all the ingredients are fresh. Its power should not be underestimated. This formula is a modern day plague tonic and when added to an incurable routine it can cure the most chronic conditions and stubborn diseases. It stimulates maximum blood circulation, while putting the best detoxifying herbs into the blood.” Click here to learn more about the master heath tonic.
