Our Ancestors Cured A Ton of Diseases With This Homemade Remedies  

Over the years, our grandparents have provided the most bizarre solutions to some of the simplest homemade remedies.

 Let us look at some of these homemade remedies below:
  • Arthritis – Raisins

It may be somewhat hard to believe for many, but it is said that raisins can it help to ease the pains associated with arthritis.  According to the wise words of grandparents, soaking raisins overnight in gin will help ease the pain and reduce swelling.  In addition, there is no need to worry about getting drunk because you won’t.

  • Bad breath – Celery

Grandparents believe that using celery for bad breath is cheap and very effective.  So, in the end, there is no need to buy several packets of gum.  Just munch on a bit of celery every day and bad breath will never be a problem.

  • Ear aches – Lemons

This particular remedy is one of the strangest I’ve seen so far.  It is said that if you squeeze some lemon juice on a cotton swab and clean your ear, you should feel better in a couple of minutes. The natural acids found in lemon juice helps balance the pH levels in the ear, causing the pain to dissipate.

  • Hair loss – Nettles

There is actually a bit of scientific evidence to solidify the theory that the nettle leaf is able to counteract hair loss. The nettle leaf is made up of several proteins and vitamins, some of which can be found in our hair.  All you need to do is put 3 to 5 leaves in a cup, add boiling water, let it sit for 2 minutes, then drink it as a tea.  You should also bear in mind that these leaves have a high silica content, so try not to drink too much nettle tea.

  • Menopause – Yams

Many people tend to confuse yams with sweet potatoes, but they’re actually very different.  Yams have a darker color and rougher skin.  In addition to reducing the symptoms of menopause, it can also help to lower cholesterol and regulate hormone levels in the body.

  • Motion sickness – Olives

Contrary to popular belief, they are facts to support the theory that olives are helpful in dealing with motion sickness.  They also have a high tannin content, which helps to reduce saliva production when you’re about to get sick.

  • Urinary tract infection – Baking soda

Who ever said that grandparents don’t have a solution for everything? By mixing a half spoon of baking soda into a glass of water and drinking it, you are able to relieve UTI symptoms in a matter of minutes.  However, you should bear in mind that if the pain is excruciating, then you may need to visit a doctor.

  • Indigestion – Dried apricots

Strangely enough, I know quite a few people who take this remedy very seriously.  Some of them even said that having a few dried apricots daily will help you digest your food better. Given the high fiber content, it can prevent bloating and keeps you full for a longer time. If you have an upset stomach after eating, try having a few dried apricots and you will definitely feel a lot better.

  • Spider bites – Potatoes

According to this remedy, your grandparents may be wiser than you think. The anti-inflammatory and anti-itch nature of raw potatoes is exactly what you need after getting a spider bite.  Just cut a thin slice of potato, wrap it in a clean cloth and rub it on the bitten area.

So the next time you feel like thinking twice about your grandparents’ remedies, you may want to give them a try first.
