Modern medicine has the merit of having helped men to fight effectively the various maladies that plague our planet. Today, we have medicines in pharmacies that cure deadly illnesses such as malaria, typhoid fever, measles, chickenpox, tuberculosis, etc… However, more and more, people are turning to nature to solve their health issues. It is even possible that some visitors to this website have resorted to plants or some other natural remedies to fight some illnesses. In the following lines, we will talk about eight natural remedies that can boost health if they are properly used.
Air is a wonderful remedy. It electrifies the whole body. We get oxygen by breathing air. To fully benefit from it, it is wise not to confine ourselves indoors throughout the day. We have to spend several hours outdoors every day. We should learn to breathe deeply. We will then get enough air in the body to purify the lungs and blood. Exercises like walking, running or manual work can increase the ability to breathe deeply.
The main source of vitamin “D” is the sun. Some call it the solar vitamin. This vitamin intervenes in bones, teeth, and other important organs of the body. We have to expose our bodies to sun rays every day. This should be done between 10 and 30 minutes. Beginners can spend 10 minutes on the first days and gradually increase minutes as the days go by until reaching 30 minutes.
When we rest, our bodies have time to recover from tiredness and be useful anew. So, sleep is a powerful remedy for the whole body. It is part of the healing process and physicians know that very well. That is why there are visiting hours in every hospital.
Rest is also pausing after a long time of work; allowing the stomach to rest for at least 3 hours after a meal. It is not good to eat between meals.
Unfortunately, it is when sickness comes that many people understand the importance of rest.
There are many ways to use water to boost body health:
a) Do not drink with meals.
b) Drink at least 30 minutes before or after meals.
c) Drink mouthfuls of water throughout the day. Do not wait until you are thirsty before drinking. Drink enough water to purify the body, that is about 3 liters every day.
d) Take two warm water baths a week.
e) Do not drink ice water or ice-cold drinks. They are harmful to the throat and stomach.
5) Moderation in everything:
Excess in everything is not good for the body. So we should learn to be moderate in everything.
Healthful living includes abstinence from whatever jeopardizes health. There are some things that weaken health like alcoholic beverages, tobacco, insufficient rest, etc… Those who want to reduce the number of their encounters with a physician should abstain from anything damaging to health.
7) Balanced Diet:
A balanced diet promotes good health. Dietitians tell us that alkaline foods are better than acid foods. The alkaline diet includes vegetables, fruits, and nuts. Acid foods are meats, dairy products, etc… We should eat more of what is alkaline.
I have been learning to cure illnesses with plants and it is so wonderful to say that I do not remember the last time I went to a hospital for treatment. For more than two years, I have been using plants to cure my diseases. For example, I learned that paw-paw leaves can be used to do away with malaria.
In sum, we have examined eight natural remedies. I have personally used them and my health is improved. Moreover, I have seen other people find relief through the use of those simple remedies. So, I advise people to learn how to promote physical well-being without drugs.
