“Take two teaspoons twice a day from this bottle, one of these pills once a day after lunch and 1 of these pills every four hours if the pain persist but don’t take more than 4 every 24 hours” – I’m sure you have heard something like that at least once during your lifetime, most people might be used to hearing these prescription instructions from their pharmacists but what do these pills do to your body in the long term? Are you suffering from a disease so severe that it definitively needs to be taken care by prescription drugs?
Unless you are a doctor, a pharmacist or have knowledge of medicine, you don’t know what goes into these drugs; US is the country where several prescription drugs are made and also the country where the most prescription drugs are recalled due to unwanted side effects, taking these facts in consideration you should always try to use as many natural remedies as possible, not only do they not produce nasty side effects, they target your illness and are less expensive than even over-the-counter medicine.
At this point you might be thinking “yeap, another article promoting natural pills” – this is actually not the case, anything that is put in form of a pill has gone through a process where other substances have been added in order to preserve the drug from going bad and for several other reasons, so regardless of how many “all natural” labels the drug may have it still has substances unknown to you.
When using natural home remedies to treat your illnesses it is very important for you to do your own research, don’t take this and that just because a friend told you so; they probably heard this solution from someone who was just speculating or heard it works or they might even have confused the solution with something that sounds similar.
Natural remedies are all about the knowledge of what plants and herbs have the necessary chemicals to treat your ailment, for instance it is general knowledge that fresh lemon juice mixed with a few tablespoons of honey have the ingredients necessary to help you regain your health after suffering from the common cold and did you know that one tablespoon of onion juice mixed with a few drops of honey can keep you from catching a cold? It might not sound that nice but it is an absolutely natural way to prevent the common cold and the after taste can be solved by brushing your teeth and using some mouth wash which is what you should be doing at least 3 times a day anyway.
Natural remedies can be the perfect solution if your ailment is not extremely severe, so while prescription medication should be avoided at all costs if your condition worsens then it is imperative you contact your doctor. Use your common sense and keep yourself healthy!
