Grandma knows best !

When you have a minor health problem, do you usually go to the doctor, get something from the drugstore, or use a home remedy ?

When people have a cold, a fever, or the flu, they usually go to the doctor for help, or
they get some medicine from the drugstore. But many people also use some home
remedies for common illnesses
Here are some simple home remedies.

Bee stings and insect bites

Wash the sting or bite. Put some meat tenderizer on a handkerchief and then put the handkerchief on the bite for half an hour. To avoid insect bites, it's helpful to eat garlic or take garlic pills.


Put the burn under cold water or put a cold handkerchief on it. Then apply aloe vera gel to the burn. It's important not to put ice on the burn.


Lots of people eat hot chicken soup when they have a cold. They find it clears the head and the nose. Some people rub oil on their chest for a cold. Other people drink a mixture of red pepper, hot water, sugar, lemon juice, and milk or vinegar. 


Drink warm liquids or take some honey.


Apply an ice pack cold cloth to your head, or splash your face with cold water. It's also a good idea to put your hands into hot water and leave them there for several minutes. Also, you shouldn't read or watch TV.


Drink a large glass of warm milk. It's also a good idea to soak in a warm bath.
