Natural Remedies to Try at Home

Natural Remedies to Try at Home

More than 40% of Americans tried home remedies to avoid going to the emergency room or an urgent care center during the pandemic. That’s according to a survey by the health technology company DrFirst.  They turned to Natural Remedies at home instead.
Reducing exposure to infection is now one more reason why home remedies are so popular. Many fans also think they’re convenient, affordable, and help avoid the side effects associated with some medications. On the other hand, just because a treatment is natural, doesn’t guarantee that it’s safe and effective. You also need to let your doctor know what you’re trying, so they can make sure it’s not interfering with the care they’re providing. Some natural remedies can interfere with prescribed medications. And with so many choices available, you may be wondering where to start.

Best Home Remedies that Really Work!

Try this list of home remedies that have an outstanding track record.


When it comes to minor injuries, RICE is a proven formula for reducing pain and swelling but also promotes healing. It stands for Rest, Ice, Compression, and Elevation. Begin as soon as possible and continue for up to 2 days.

Eat Chicken Soup

For common colds, grandmothers and scientists agree on serving chicken soup. It breaks up mucus and fights inflammation. Go easy on the salt to help you stay hydrated. Another cold buster is to bring eucalyptus in the shower to help with opening up your nasal passages!

Gargle with Salt Water

One half teaspoon of salt in a glass of warm water can soothe a sore throat. Repeat every 3 hours and take a hot shower. Breathing in steam will reduce swelling and dryness.

Drink Tea

The antioxidants in tea provide a wide variety of health benefits, including strengthening your immunity and reducing your risk of heart disease. Different kinds of teas may serve different purposes. For example, chamomile tea is often recommended for insomnia, menstrual pain, and muscle spasms.  Read my post on the best teas for anxiety to learn more!

nausea and colds. Drink hot ginger tea or add it to other beverages and food.

Slice a Cucumber

Are your eyes dry and tired from too much screen time? Relieve the strain by lying back with a thin slice of cucumber on each eye for a few minutes.

Effective Home Remedies for Your Mental Wellbeing

Research shows that exercise works as well as medication for some patients with depression. Whe you exercise your body releases endorphins! The happy hormone! If you’re taking antidepressants, follow your doctor’s recommendations and talk with them before making any changes.

Take time to Reflect

Boost your mood and sharpen your concentration with regular reflection. Think about your day, your goals, or things you’re grateful for. Make plans that you can take action on.

Experiment with Essential Oils

Many users will agree that certain essential oils can ease anxiety and enables more restful sleep. You don’t need a prescription, and you can find a variety of products online or in holistic stores.  Check out my post on Essential Oils!

Breathe Deeply

Simple breathing exercises reduce anxiety too. Lie on your back and put one hand on your chest and the other on your abdomen while you slowly inhale and exhale. To learn more techniques, browse the catalog at your local library, or visit an exercise studio.

There is truth to the old saying that laughter is a powerful medicine. Studies show that it relieves stress, along with fighting inflammation and lowering blood pressure. Watch funny videos and joke around with your family and friends. I personally watch comedy movies when I am feeling down.  It is an instant pick me up!

Simple Home Remedies

Do your own research and talk with your doctor to help evaluate the science behind home remedies you want to try. Making informed decisions will help you to choose options that really work. I hope this list of simple home remedies assist in pointing you in the right direction.  I am a firm believer in trying natural remedies first. But everyone needs too what is best for them!
