home remedies for aches/pains aka The Bean Topic

#1 by pindokhan123 » Thu Mar 09, 2017 10:48

recently i been having alot of pain in my calves,probably due to standing for long lengths of times and i tried medication but did not work,so since yesterday i been putting a hot water bottle under each of my legs when going to sleep and its soothed and relaxed my muscles and really made a difference in the morning.
i would use this method from now on wherever i need a hot treatment for painful aches or joints as it really helps.

anyone else got good tips/homemade natural remedies?

I can't really think of any.

Most people that used home made remedies are those that made them before there was
any thing else. I always assume that is why they are dead now.

Ok I am kidding, sort of.

I can't really think of anything. Household items that one usually has in their kitchen can
be good such as Baking Soda, Garlic, and even Ice. Other products that are normally found
in the restroom such as rubbing alcohol.

Generally, I keep a variety of common household products such as those I mentioned and
various ointments. I think I have an ointment for most everything.

I have back pain 24/7 and rather use to it. The other day I purchased a bottle of Bayer for
back pain. Might of been around $15 for the bottle of 100 or 200. They didn't even phase
the pain. I had a bottle of Equate aspirin, bottle of 500 for $3 and I took two of those and
it really helped relieve the back pain.

both coconut oil and vinegar are versatile, garlic has the same ingredient as aspirin a substance called allicin if im correct,good for joints,common colds and the heart...............a regular intake of a couple of cloves daily will surely improve your health in the long run ,,,,perhaps distance you from your loved one too :D

I am a longtime believer in the healing properties of
Aloe Vera.I have used the jell straight from a leaf on
cuts and bruises with great results and drink the juice
mixed with water that I have cooked beets in.
Avocado and grapefruit are fantastic cholesterol reducers.
There is my pennies worth for today.

Just a reminder though that if you are taking any medications, especially cholesterol tablets (such as Lipitor), then you must make sure that there is no restriction on eating grapefruit, which can cause adverse effects with some medications.

My doctor took me off the cholesterol tablets at the end of last year, so for the first time in a decade I have been able to eat my favorite breakfast marmalade (which contains grapefruit peel).

Quote:Grapefruit–drug interactions - Wikipedia

Grapefruit and grapefruit juice have been found to interact with numerous drugs, in many cases resulting in adverse effects. Some other citrus fruits can have similar effects; one medical review advised patients to avoid all citrus.

You should be able to get an aloe vera plant at any garden nursery that sells house plants.

I don't have any at the moment but I have grown many inside my house and people tend to be
amazed at how well they grow for me.

The key is to not water them but very rarely and leave them in a very warm sunny location.
In addition, use good potting soil that is very rich dark soil.

As babies sprout, you can pull those up and plant them in baby planters.

PS. I have grapefruit cups in the fridge. Companies such as 'Dole' sells fruit cups and I like to
buy their grapefruit cups too. Nice to have those when you don't have a whole grapefruit.

Not a 'home' remedy, but I find that Advil, especially the liqui-gels works very well for me . :) :)

For all who have stinky feet :mrgreen:

Soak feet nightly in 1 part vinegar and 2 parts water to eliminate odoriferous bacteria.

Glucosamin is probably best bid . It is non persription medication , ask at the pharmacy . It works on pain in joints and emproves the manuverabilllety . Be advised the effect will first show after 2 to 4 weeks after starting to take them .

I usually order them online from walmart. I do buy the great value cans of peaches, pears, and
fruit cocktail. I don't normally buy the pineapple great value as I find it tastes different. I order
a lot of the gel cups and fruit cups. I eat those most every day.

Did you know they have a new one?

It is pineapple coconut and boy it is good! If you like coconut, you'll like it. It is pineapple in a
coconut juice or coconut flavor.

Never made a sandwich out of fruit. :lol:

I tried some of the fusion fruit veggie cups and did not see anything so remarkable about those.

Oh I tell you something that is great for your face....

My uncle way back in the 60s came home from Nam with hair problems. Yep, they said the
heat was so severe over there that it resulted in hair loss for him. We lived in Chicago land
so he went into Chicago to a hair/skin specialist. Well turns out he married her.

So me being a kid, my forehead was breaking out. She told me to take a little honey and
warm it in a pan on the stove. This was before microwaves. Then remove the honey from
the stove. Make sure it isn't hot. Just warm. Mix in a raw oats to make a glumpy paste.
Take into bathroom and over the sink, apply the mixture onto my face. After that, leave it
on about ten to fifteen minutes and while it is on, take your fingers and tap all over your
face. The more you tap, the better.

I want you to know, that I still do that today. A best friend and I, we would do that all the
time when we would spend the night at the others house. We got a big kick out of it. Plus
it taste good if you get it in your mouth. :lol:

Then rinse it off with warm water. You will be AMAZED. Yes, your face will look a little
pinkish due to the tapping but your skin will look so clean and bright.

It cleans your pores better than anything you can buy in a jar.

Hello Val, I only make a sandwich with the Pineapple with mayonnaise . The mayo just brings out a yummie flavor. I also like banana sandwiches too. Yes I've tried the pineapple coconut and liked it. Glad I made you laugh.... :lol:
