Home remedies and tips for minor ailments

For minor ills, turn to grandma’s home remedies and tips using the stuff from your kitchen and home. They work wonders to relieve annoying medical problems.

Here is a collection of some favorite remedies for common ailments:

Bug bites:

Break out the roll-on anti-perspirant, and dab a bit on itchy, irritated red welts from mosquito bites.

Acne (Zits):

For that annoying zit which props up on your face, apply toothpaste before you go to bed. It should help dry up the pimple by next morning.

Stuffy nose:

Mix a quarter teaspoon of salt in a half cup of water and spray or drop the solution into the nose. The concoction helps clean out nasal mucus, which washes out pollens and virus bugs.

Sore throat:

Push the fluids. Keep the throat moist by having hard candies, which probably do as much good as cough medicines.

Gastrointestinal problems:

During diarrhea, eat lot of starches, bananas, and rice. If constipated, stay away from starches, and eat plenty of fruits and vegetables, high fibre foods and water.

Smelly feet:

Soak feet in strong tea decoction for 20 minutes everyday until smell disappears. To prepare footbath, brew two tea bags in two-and-a-half cups of water for 15 minutes and pour the tea into a basin containing two litres of cool water.

    hold your breath and altering the way you breathe. It clears the nose in 3 or 4 minutes.
    It sounds simple but it does work. The idea is that carbon dioxide is a natural dilator of the smooth muscle tissue in the body and by increasing your CO2 in your system you open up the airways.
