Home remedies recipes
We all grew up under grandma's watchful eyes! Headache, tiredness, fever or a bad cold… name it and she would have a quick home remedy for it. No side-effects, no fuss, no trip to the pharmacy – just a few minutes in the kitchen, to make your illness vanish.
So we are making an effort to pass on these secrets to you, and all future generations.
Home Remedies, prepared with the vast variety of herbs, spices and other vegetation available in India, not only help to cure diseases but also to prevent them. These remedies usually strengthen the body's mechanisms to fight diseases unlike modern medicines that often weaken the system. This is perhaps the strongest point in favour of home remedies!
If you are now enthusiastic to fight ailments the time-tested way, naturally, then this can be your guide. Here, we present a whole bunch of home remedies , from common ones like Cold, Headache, Sore Throat and Fever to others like Diabetes, Protein Deficiency and Pimples/ Acne.
Although these remedies have been noted from personal experiences, they have been duly verified with data available in medical literature.We use natural ingredients that are easily available in most kitchen shelves. Not only do they heal, but also appeal to your taste buds!
Going beyond the recipes, we also present further information for each ailment, such as foods to be avoided, suggestions to stay healthy and avoid further complications. These remedies, however, are not replacements for medical advice from a general physician. So, try these remedies at first but if the condition does not alleviate, see a physician without delay.
Though the remedies recommended here are effective and delicious, remember that the best medicine is preventive medicine. So, eat right, exercise well and take care of yourself before illness strikes.
