Garlic can help to relief coughing. Have you try it yet?

The unbeatable garlic clove is once again on the limelight. It has many healing factors useful to man and one of that is for cough relief.

If you can stand smelling of garlic every time you breath then you are on your way to great health, away from the hazard of commercial medicines.

To prepare, boil a head of garlic, peeled and crushed, in 3 cups water. To sweeten the mixture, add a tablespoon of honey. If you don’t have one, you may use the stevia leaves which acts as natural sweetener. Let it cool and drink like tea.One home practice that my mother use for developing cough and even sore throat is lemonade. But this is interesting because its not simply mixed in water and sugar and to be taken immediately. Its pure squeezed lemon in lukewarm water left overnight outside the house!

I don’t know why it must be left outside but it seems to work for my father. Anyway, lemon in itself is a powerful ingredient to soothe sore throat and irritating cough. When combined with honey, with its bee pollen and propolis, it becomes a potent medicine for cough.

Remember, when it comes to cough, there are a lot of useful medicines in your cupboard or in your backyard. Think twice before going to the pharmacy.

5 natural remedies for heartburn

It’s understandable that most Americans take antacids when bouts of acid reflux occur. It is actually very painful. This happens when the valve in the stomach weakens and the acid reflux back to the esophagus, which can’t tolerate acidity.

Heartburn

Heartburn

When this occurs, a feeling of heart burning sensation occurs like your heart is being clenched. That’s how painful acid reflux could get. And unfortunately, antacids will only make it worst!

Yes, when we thought that people suffering from acid reflux has too much hydrochloric acid in their stomach, they may actually be deficient with it.

You see, acid helps break down the protein in the stomach and when you have less acid content, it interferes with proper digestion, causing nausea, bloating, belching and other symptoms of heartburn. The following are some of the ways to beat acid reflux.

  1. Try taking a supplement   containing hydrochloric acid such as Gas-X Extra strength liquid before  meals. You should get relief right away if your stomach is deficient with HCL.
  1. Just in case you feel a mild burning sensation after taking Gas-X, try mixing a spoon of baking  soda in water, mix thoroughly and drink right away. It is thought to  relieve and reverse the acidity.
  1. A cup of aloe gel could  also do the trick. It helps protect and heal the delicate lining of the  esophagus which is the part of the digestive system that terribly suffers the pain of an acid reflux.
  1. Avoid eating big meals. It makes your body produce a lot more acid. Try eating five or six small meals a day. This should ease down acid production.
  1. The simplest way is to sleep properly. How? Since the stomach is more deviated on the left, avoid lying on your left side or on your back as this will encourage the backflow of the stomach contents. Better still, do not lie down when you are still feeling full.
