Sometimes, the food that we have in our house is not for consumption only. It can be used as a remedy to treat different conditions.
This is especially the case with some homemade remedies to use whenever we are in pain, weak, or encounter some health issue. Therefore, we will reveal several bizarre solutions that really solve problems:
Baking Soda For Urinary Tract Infection
You should add a sprinkling of baking soda to a glass of water. This will treat the symptoms in no time. Baking soda fights infections and alkalizes the bladder, thus protecting it from harmful bacteria.
Potatoes For Spider Bites
Raw potatoes have potent anti-itching and anti-inflammatory properties, so if a spider bites you, all you need is a raw, sliced potato and a bandage or thin cloth. Rub the area for a couple of minutes and then leave the slice of potato on the bite and cover it with the bandage or cloth.
Raisins For Arthritis
You should soak some golden raisins overnight in a couple of spoonfuls of gin. This way, the vitamins in raisins will combine with the anti-inflammatory effects of the juniper berries used to make gin, and this will relieve the pain and swelling in the case of arthritis.
Celery For Bad Breath
All you need to do to combat bad breath is to put some celery in your mouth and chew it.
Nettles Treat Hair Loss
Nettle leaves are rich in protein, calcium, phosphorus, iron, magnesium, and beta-carotene. What is more, they are abundant in high amounts of the vitamins A, C, D, and B complex’, all of which are beneficial for hair and its growth.
Since our hair is mostly made of proteins, the nettle leaves will maintain its health and make it shiny and strong. You should brew a kettle of boiling water. Then, add 4-6 leaves in a mug, pour the hot water, and enjoy the nettle tea.
Yams For Menopause
Yams have a thicker rougher skin, and are darker than sweet potatoes, so you should not confuse them. They are rich in vitamin A and C, which balance hormones, as well as dietary fiber which reduces cholesterol levels.
Dried Apricots For Indigestion
