What are Home Remedies?

Do you know which herbal remedies are safe and which aren’t? If not, check out Herbs for Human Health.

What kind of things can home remedies address?

Simple herbal remedies have been used for thousands of years to treat things like poison ivy (not to mention sumac and oak), bee stings, mosquito bites and even the common cold. Barring an allergic reaction, they can still reduce the annoyance of these conditions now.

What do I need to know about herbal remedies?

It’s important to know what is causing the problem that you wish to deal with. Basic First Aid comes in very handy, and most of us have been introduced to it.

Beyond that, you should know if there are any allergies, or medications being used that will change how you address the problem. Some medications can interact dangerously with different herbs and other items used in home remedies.

Using alternative herbal remedies can come in very handy when a problem develops, especially in the middle of the night. Many times, I have used simple items found in my spice rack to care for coughs, sore throats, etc. Many common herbs and spices have uses as an herbal remedy.

Some of the herbs and spices I've used include basil, cayenne, cinnamon, cloves, garlic and mint. Basil and mint can be useful for mild upset stomachs, including morning sickness. cinnamon and cloves can help to ease a sore throat. Mint can help soothe a cough and cayenne is good for some aches and pains. Garlic is useful in many categories.

Green tea is an herb that is readily available and may have many healthful properties. While some applications require the tea be taken in supplement form, a cup or two of green tea may enough for most of us.

Back pain relief may come from herbs, depending on what the problem is. Back pain can be caused by many things, and it's important to discover what causes it. Sometimes it is simple, and sometimes it is extremely complex. Many causes of back pain, however, can benefit from natural herbal remedies.

Even acid reflux symptoms may be eased by some simple home remedies, both foods and herbs. Once diagnosed with acid reflux, also known as GERD, ask your doctor if home remedies such as oats, apple cider vinegar and baking soda will ease the symptoms.

Herbal remedies for gout are available, and may help stop a flareup. There are also a few herbal remedies to avoid. Using cherry juice for gout is a well known remedy. On the other hand, using autumn crocus is a bad idea.

What is some of the history of herbal remedies?

Home remedies are as old as mankind. Trial and error built up the knowledge of plant and mineral remedies even before doctors began to be trained. Some of the remedies are bazaar, such as an old receipt for making “horse dung water.” Others are more valuable and are still used today, such as willow bark. I have grossed out a number of people showing them that particular receipt in an herb book.

As knowledge of herbs and their uses began to develop into modern medicine, two rivaling theories about herbs came up. The first was called the Doctrine of Signatures, and stated that God had signed each plant with a clue to how it should be used. This could be the shape of the leaves or root, colors of the leaves or the type of flower.

The second theory was espoused by Nicolas Culpeper, and was based on astrology. Each plant had a planet and a zodiac sign assigned to it, showing what it would be used for.

While a herbal practitioner at the time could be a doctor, more often, women had a major role in herbal practices. The lady of the manor would have a still room, in which she would make "simples," to take care of her family and the tenants.

In the U.S., women also had a role as herbal practitioner, taking care of the family. This is especially true of the pioneers, who sometimes did not have access to a doctor. In fact, cookbooks as late as 1895 came in two parts. Part one was for food recipes, and part two had home remedies and herbal preparations for many aspects of a housewife's job.
