  13. HIGH CHOLESTEROL: “Lecithin, also a fatty food substance and the most abundant of the phospholipids, is beneficial in case of increase in cholesterol level. It has the ability to break up cholesterol into small particles which can be easily handled by the system. With sufficient intake of lecithin, cholesterol cannot build up against the walls of the arteries and veins. Lecithin also increases the production of bile acids made from cholesterol, thereby reducing its amount in the blood, Egg yolk, vegetable oils, wholegrain cereals, soyabeans, and unpasturised milk are rich sources of lecithin. The cells of the body are also capable of synthesizing it as needed, if several of the B vitamins are present.” More on High Cholesterol remedies.
  14. INDIGESTION: Drink either or both mint tea and chamomile tea frequently to ease stomach upset. More on Indigestion remedies.
  15. INSOMNIA: Drink warm milk and honey before bedtime. Massaging some of this milk into the soles of your feet can help too. Also try a warm bath before bedtime. Write down worries on notepad next to your bed so you can “leave them behind” and go to sleep. More Insomnia remedies.
  16. ITCHING: Any of these are known to soothe itching: witch hazel, vick’s vapor rub, aloe vera, and ice. More Itch remedies.
  17. LEG CRAMPS: Drink enough water daily to avoid dehydration which can cause cramps. Also make sure you get enough potassium with foods like bananas, avacadoes, fish, nuts, blackstrap molasses, and carrot juice. More Leg Cramp remedies.
  18. LICE. The best remedy is to lather mayonaise all over the entire scalp and hair. (The mayonaise will suffocate the lice and loosen the eggs from the hair shaft.) Cover with either a shower cap or a plastic grocery bag and tie around the forehead. Leave on for 3 hours. Shampoo hair. There will still be mayo and a greasy feeling to the hair. Ths is ok. Next, carefully and meticulously comb the hair in layers with a nit comb. Then shampoo again to get rid of the remaining greasy mayonaise residue. This treatment will work better than the lice-killing shampoo. Of course you’ll also need to launder everything the child’s head came in contact with. Also vacuum things like couches and car seats. For things that can’t be laundered, such as stuffed animals, you can put them in an airtight ziplock bag and leave for 2 weeks. (Updated July 22, 2007.)
  19. MOSQUITOES: Take one 100 mg B1 tablet every day to repel mosquitoes. Effectiveness begins immediately. The most effective topical remedy is Repel Lemon Eucalyptus Repellent.

  21. NAUSEA: Fresh ginger in tea will ease an upset stomach. More on Nasea remedies.
  22. PRE MENSTRUAL SYNDROME (PMS): Take GLA (Gamma Linolenic Acid) daily. This is obtained from vegetables such as blackcurrant seed and evening primrose. Take a 1000 mg capsule 1-3 times daily. This really helps with lowering PMS symptoms. Highly recommended. More PMS remedies.

  24. WRINKLES: There are many natural things you can do. First is to make sure you have a healthy diet rich in vegetable and fruits. Just as important is proper hydration. Drink at least 8 eight ounce glasses of water or clear liquids daily. Topically you can apply a mask of raw egg whites to your face. Allow to dry and then rinse with room temperature water. Your face will feel very smooth. For problem areas you can massage coconut oil every night before bed. Here are many more Wrinkle remedies.
  25. YEAST INFECTION: The live cultures in yogurt are a known cure for yeast. This works both by ingesting the yogurt or topical application. More on Yeast Infection remedies.
  26. SNORING: Many things can help such as side-sleeping, quitting smoking, losing weight if needed, getting allergies under control, using a humidifier, or these exercizes found at DentalGentleCare: “Tongue and throat exercises, if practiced diligently over a period of time, may be of great benefit in reducing snoring. Repeat each of the following exercises 5 times each, twice daily:
    • 1) Slowly open and close your mouth to its full extent, making sure the lips meet when closing.
      2) Pucker your lips (as if about to kiss). Hold for a count of 10. Relax.
      3) Spread your lips into a big, exaggerated smile. Hold. Relax.
      4) Mix Exercises 2 & 3: Pucker-Hold-Smile-Hold.
      5) Try to pucker with your mouth wide open, without closing your jaws together. Hold & relax.
      6) Close your lips and press them tightly together.
      7)Close your lips firmly, then make a ‘slurping’ noise, as if sipping a drink.
      8) Open your mouth and stick out your tongue. Be sure your tongue comes straight out of your mouth and doesn’t go off the side. Hold, relax and repeat several times. Work toward sticking your tongue out farther each day, but still pointing straight ahead.
      9) Stick out your tongue and move it slowly from corner to corner of your lips. Hold in each corner, relax and repeat several times. Be sure your tongue actually touches each corner each time.
      10) Stick out your tongue and try to reach your chin with the tongue tip. Hold at the farthest extension.
      11) Stick out your tongue and try to touch your nose with the tongue tip. Hold at farthest extension.
      12) Stick out your tongue. Hold a spoon upright against the tip of your extended tongue and try to push it away while your hand holds the spoon in place.
      13) Repeatedly stick your tongue in and out as fast as you can.
      14) Flick your tongue from corner to corner as quickly as you can.
      15) Move tongue all around your lips in a circle as quickly as you can, making sure you stay in constant contact.
      16) Open and close mouth as quickly as you can, making sure your lips close each time. 17) Say ‘Ma-Ma-Ma-Ma’ as quickly as possible, ensuring there’s an ’em’ and an ‘ah’ sound each time.
      18) Repeat with ‘La-La-La-La.’
      19) Repeat with ‘Ka-Ka-Ka-Ka’ as quickly and accurately as you can.
      20) Repeat with ‘Kala-Kala-Kala-Kala.’
      21) Gargle loudly with warm water.
      22) Sing through the vowel sounds (A-E-I-O-U) as loudly as you can (or dare). Songs like ‘Old McDonald Had a Farm’ are also good.”

    Wow what an amazing list. Two things I found really interesting were that Vitamin C helps with the hangover!? and the second tip that egg yolk contains Lecithin which helps break down cholesterol. Generally people think that egg yolk is really bad and raises cholesterol. Well don’t want to get in those details here. Anyways thanks for sharing the list.

    Most of the home remedies for simple and common ailments could be just drinking hot soup, warm water with lemon and ginger or even just lying down and breathing deeply. Some of these alternative treatment may also include herbal recipes with ingredients such as basil, ginger, chamomile, turmeric leaves. These cures are so simple and yet very effective.

    I’m a 3 time cancer survivor and my oncologist suggested I go the natural cures rout, and it’s sure made a big difference. I definitely would recommend that anyone give the natural cures way a try. Plus I have found that going organic has made me feel a great deal better also.

    I’ve already been considering this more and doing a bit of study which has been pretty useful, However I thought anti snoring had been mostly an “overweight” situation.

    I have found a handful of almonds every day good for my blood pressure and I have grown to love them – they are delicious roasted.

    I was on BP tablets, but with some exercise and the almonds I have been able to get of medication. I try and convince myself that I love exercise also but it is a bit like the almonds – after exercise it feels like I have been roasted!

  14. Home remedies for piles June 18, 2012 at 4:13 am #

    Some great tip there. I never knew you could use mayo for lice, so thanks for that.

    My tip would be for anyone suffering from piles to use Aloe Vera gel straight from the plant as a topical relief. It can be very soothing.
