10 Natural Remedies That Actually Work

I’ve come on this channel and debunked “natural remedies” and “at home treatments” for various health problems more times than I can even remember. Considering how critical I’ve been of these naturopathic treatments, you might be surprised to learn that while most of them a myths, there are a handful of natural treatments that you can actually use to treat some mild health conditions. Honey for a cough, melatonin for sleep, saline nasal sprays to clear your sinuses while you have a cold, sugar for hiccups, oatmeal to treat eczema, aloe vera for sunburns, prunes for constipation, calamine for itches and burns, probiotics, and even duct tape to fight warts. Of course, don’t get me started on soda for fighting an upset stomach! Have you tried any of these? Let me know down in the comments!

I LOVE reading your comments and take your suggestions seriously. If there’s a subject you want me to discuss or something you’d like for me to react to, leave a comment down below. Many of my videos have been born out of suggestions directly from you, so don’t hold back!

My dad wouldn’t let us drink soda when we were kids. Just water and juice. And now, I honestly can’t stand soda. It doesn’t taste good to me and i think that’s because i wasn’t accustomed to drinking it as a kid. The fizz just doesn’t taste natural and it puts me off. especially coca cola and pepsi. I have a theory that if people try not drinking soda for a couple months, they’ll realize how weird it tastes. That’s just a theory tho!

I tried Aloe Vera, it works.. But what black magic happens with MUSTARD!! I got a nasty burn on my hand that was starting to bubble up and remembered my friends dad (that's a chef) telling me about using it all the time for burns in the kitchen. I did NOT expect it to work as well as it did, the burn was gone like if nothing by the next day. A year later!! i burned myself again (not as bad), this time with a little skepticism in my head i only put mustard on half the burn as an experiment. Again.. Amazed that the part which i put mustard on was like no burn ever happened just a few hours after and the other half was dark and very tight. I put mustard on that half but took a whole other day to heal, and that was the lightly burnt side of the burn ;-)

Whenever I got a stomach bug as a kid and would be throwing up I'd drink Sprite. It always seemed to calm my stomach and was easier to keep down than anything else. Sure it wasnt healthy, but it helped. I'd sip some sprite and feel better, and eventually be able to eat or drink something more substantial
flucka Pred 6 dnevi
Sprite and coke have sugar and salt enough to help you feel better when you are nauseous. A solution consistent of water, sugar and salt would do the same but it doesn't taste as good.

Supplements that work: melatonin, vitamin D and magnesium. Vitamin D deficiency is common in the Nordic countries, it is added to milk and it is recommended you take supplements, just like i just did few minutes ago. Just because it is called a supplement means it is hocus pocus. But a lot of supplements are.

Aloe vera is amazing. I have tried multiple Aloe Vera gels and lidocaine sprays, cream etc for burns. They do not work for me at all. Taking a stalk of Aloe Vera, cutting it open and rubbing it on a burn works wonders, it is so soothing and actually makes the burn fade quicker.

When you said honey, I remembered that when I was stung by a bee, father told me to cover the infected area with honey. And I was like, “Okay.”, went to the fridge, grab the bottle of honey, and smeared it all over where the bee stung me. And, a few minutes later, it's gone. Knowledge, my father keeps it in his brain. Whether it's for physical or mental health, my father will give out his wisdom to me and my siblings. Even though I'm the youngest of the family. 7 YEARS apart of my family. So yeah, you could tell that I was the odd one from my family.

that soda thing is interesting. I'm alive thanks to coca cola actually, it literally saved my life as a kid, when i had really big issues with digestive system. anything i ate or drank went straight back out. and after many weeks of being on infusions one doctor said to my parents they should try to give me coca cola. and it stayed inside. and i got better. and here i am 24 years later (i was 5 or 6 at that time, don't really remember that on my own) - and back then, here where I live, small bottle of coca cola was really expensive and salaries were low.
