There is no doubt, we can learn a lot from our grandparents, even though we are doubtful at the beginning. Especially when it comes for some home remedies they offer to us whenever we are in pain, weak, or encounter some health issue.
Yet, we must admit that most of them actually work!
So, here are several ridiculous home remedies that our grandmas come up with, but in the end it solves the problem.
5 Ridiculous Home Remedies Our Grandparents Used:
Raisins for Arthritis
Soak some golden raisins overnight in a couple of spoonfuls of gin. In this way, the vitamins in raisins will combine with the anti-inflammatory effects of the juniper berries used to make gin. This will relieve the pain and swelling in the case of arthritis.
Nettles treat Hair Loss
Actually, the nettle leaves are rich in protein, calcium, phosphorus, iron, magnesium, and beta-carotene. They contain high amounts of the vitamins A, C, D, and B complex’, all of which are beneficial for the hair and its growth.
Our hair is mostly made of proteins, so the nettle leaves maintains its health and make it shiny and strong. According to our grandmas, brew a kettle of boiling water. Add 4-6 leaves in a mug, pour the hot water, and enjoy the nettle tea.
Baking Soda for a Urinary Tract Infection
Add a sprinkling of baking soda to a glass of water. This will treat the symptoms in no time, as the baking soda fights infections and alkalizes the bladder. In this way it is protecting it from harmful bacteria.
Yams for Menopause
They have a thicker rougher skin, and are darker than sweet potatoes, so you should not confuse them. They are rich in vitamin A and C, which balance hormones, as well as dietary fiber which reduces cholesterol levels.
Celery for Bad Breath
You have eaten a garlic. No problem. All you need to do to combat bad breath is to stick a bunch of celery in your mouth and chew it like a gum.
We suggest that you try some of these tricks next time, even though many of them sound crazy, they actually work!
