Here is a quick and easy ways to soothe the bruise. When we have an injury to the skin, a shade of purple and blue will usually appear on that area. It’s called a bruise-a sign of injury under our skin wherein there are broken blood vessel usually from a bump, a fall or a blow.

But for everyday bruising, there are a lot of alternative natural remedies that will surely keep away those nasty bruises. You can get arnica cream from any CVS Pharmacy. It’s fabulous for bruises with intact skin but never use it with broken skin since its harmful when taken internally.

A few times a day, spread arnica cream to the affected area and it will magically take the pain away, and will stop the bruise from forming.

Bromelain has also been known to be a good remedy for bruising. It will digest fibrin which is a by product of a bruise that usually cause swelling and inflammation.

This protein digesting enzyme is found in pineapples. But sadly though, eating a lot of pineapple won’t remove the bruises. Instead, try to look for bromelain supplements.

Take 250 to 500 milligrams in tablet or capsule form between meals until the bruising and inflammation subsides. Another traditional relief for bruises is the cold and hot water towel trick.

Wring out a towel in a hot water, not too much heat to produce more injury, Just enough warmth. Put on the injured area for 3 minutes. Next put the cold towel over the same for 30 seconds.

How to cure sore throat naturally

Rinsing your throat with saline water may help relief sore throat

Rinsing your throat with saline water may help relief sore throat

Everybody in their lifetime has once in a while suffered from the painful sore in the throat. This sometimes happens when we have cough and colds and there are times that our throats get irritated when we have too much sweets intake.

More commonly, our tonsils get inflamed when we have sore throats. In my early childhood, we were thought to gargle warm water with a pinch of salt every morning before eating or drinking anything.

Salt has been known to alleviate inflammation and with this simple procedure, sure enough, sore throat has slowly diminished. This is for the usual and simple cases when there is no underlying cause.

Oftentimes, when I know that I would soon have sore throat, I avoid drinking cold beverage and avoid eating spicy and sweet foods. Another natural way is to swallow a piece of ginger like a candy.

Ginger has a lot of healing properties that has been known to soothe pain and decrease inflammation. This does not suit me. I would rather drink a cup of hot ginger ale.

This is a powder form of ginger that is available in supermarkets. Serve a teaspoon or two in a cup of hot water and drink like tea. Often times, there is no need to add sugar.

There are a lot of natural remedies out there that will help cure the simple sore throat. But if you notice that despite these natural techniques, your sore throat keeps coming back, better consult a physician.
