What is Herbal Treatment
Herbal treatments at home can give you freedom from common ailments like cough and cold, breathing problems, skin allergies, stomach disorders, and stress-related issues. You can also get relief from psychological disturbances during menstrual cycles, pregnancy, and menopause. I came across such treatments when I visited Asia last month. Many of them are easy to prepare and simple to use. They have absolutely no side effects since the ingredients are natural. Let me share some of my experiences. You don’t need to depend on prescription medicines which may have side effects on your mind and body in the future.
Ginger and cardamom are known for their healing effects for the common cold. You can grind them to make a powder. Store it in a cool place. Add one spoon of powder to warm water and drink when you feel the sensation of irritation in your throat. It can provide soothing effects and eliminate the mucus from your nostrils effectively. You can start breathing normally without any symptoms of blockages.
Alternately, you can also use ginger with garlic to make a paste. Besides healing common cold, it can also remove the mucus within the lungs, throat, and nostrils.
Add one spoon of salt to one cup of warm water and mix well until it dissolves. Gargle your throat and spit out. You have to raise your neck up while gargling. It clears all the contaminants and mucus accumulated in your throat and relieves pain.
The marshmallow root powder is useful for reducing the symptoms of cough to a significant extent. Respiratory tract cleaning is the first benefit you experience. It can also act as a preventive measure for cough during all seasons. If you are a smoker, it removes the nicotine and other contaminants from your lungs to a considerable extent. The remedy is available in the form of capsules and powder.
Mint and basil leaves can provide healing from constipation. You can add a handful of them to a cup of hot water. Wait until the hot water extracts all the ingredients for a few minutes. Then you can drink the water without removing the leaves. Do it twice a day and you can get relief from constipation within 24 hours to 48 hours. You can also prepare a paste and store in a bottle for future use.
Take a handful of fresh Neem leaves in a bowl. Add one spoon of turmeric powder, one spoon of honey, one spoon of lime juice, and one spoon of ginger. Mix well and make a paste. Apply all over your body and let it soak for 15 to 20 minutes. Then you can shower. You don’t need to use any soap or shampoo, as the ingredients have all the cosmetic qualities.
You can eliminate many of the skin allergies like acne, rashes, and pimples, as well as aging disorders. The wrinkles on your skin go away and it gets rejuvenated.
