There are so many home remedies circulation the world wide web, from social media to Pinterest, you can always find something to cure what may be ailing you. However, not all those remedies actually work. Some are just straight BS or otherwise referred as ‘snake oil’.
Here are 8 home remedies that are actually proven to work wonders, time and time again!
1. Ginger, Used For Nausea
Ginger actually helps to break up and release gastrointestinal gasses. Drink some ginger ale, ginger tea, or chew on some candy made with actual ginger.
2. Sex For Migraines
Naturally this is probably the best ‘home remedy’ ever…for various reasons of course! During sex, your body releases endorphins which help to deal with pain. Researchers found that migraines subsided in 43% of people who took part in the study, but the relief only came after “completion.”
3. Duct Tape To Remove Warts
Patrick DeHeer, MD, a podiatrist and board-certified foot surgeon based in Indianapolis says that there is something in the adhesive of duct tape that is toxic to warts but harmless to people. In studies, 85% of warts were successfully removed using this method.
4. Superglue Can Heal Cracked Heels
Superglue was actually created during war times to seal up soldiers wounds during battle. The wounds needed to be healed quickly, so soldiers didn’t bleed out and die. It’s only natural that superglue would heal cracked heels!
Simply soak your feet in water for a few minutes, rub in some moisturizer, and then use small amounts of glue on any remaining cracks.
5. Sage Tea For A Sore Throat
Pour nearly-boiled water over two tablespoons of fresh sage, or one tablespoon of dried leaves before covering it. Let it steep for 10-15 minutes.
6. Lemons For Motion Sickness
Motion sickness tends to make your mouth fill with saliva. When you feel sick or nauseous, you get the urge to throw up and this causes your saliva glands to over produce. Lemon will help dry out your mouth so you can avoid that unpleasant ‘pukey’ feeling.
7. Listening To Nature Sounds Helps Cure Tinnitus.
Tinnitus is that annoying ringing sound in your ears that just appears and never seems to stop. It has been scientifically proven that listening to the sounds of nature and animals can significantly cut down on that annoying ringing sound, and the mental anguish that seems to come with it.
8. Peppermint For Anxiety Relief
