How do you feel about Home Remedies? Would you give them a chance before you turn to more conventional medicine? I usually run from taking pills or any kind of medicine as if it were the plague. Can’t help it really, it is a family trait.
It started with my parents. My father seldom complained about anything, never found it useful to consult a doctor or take medicine unless he was almost dying.
As for my mother, whenever a doctor prescribed any kind of drug, she would never follow the instructions to the letter. She always seemed surprised when the treatment didn’t work.
Some of my siblings and I have been following in our parent’s footsteps. I have a sister who will only take natural remedies no matter what. It can take as much as a month to cure a cold but she won’t budge. Moreover, she will tell you she is getting better everyday with all the vitamins, natural teas and herbs although her cough is so bad you think she will soon die!
I like to think I’m more balanced. I will go with any home remedy if it works and if it doesn’t, I will consult a doctor and follow the instructions as much as I feel it is appropriate!
The posts on my Home Remedies page focus on home-made remedies I have been trying to gather here in Mexico and in other countries where I have lived. There will also be others I’ve always used and that you may have heard of. You are welcome to check them out.
