6 Wonderful Ayurvedic Home Remedies

Got a pain or problem? Donít dial the doctor just yet. Give these simple Ayurvedic remedies a chance to work their magic.

Aaah, My tooth Aches

Chew on a clove slowly, letting the juice penetrate the affected area.† Clove has been used since ancient times as a star treatment for dental problems. It contains a healing compound called eugenol that soothes inflamed nerves. But remember: your tooth is hurting because there is an infection somewhere. Clove will bring you relief from the pain, but do see a dentist soon.

Never Can Say Goodnight

Canít sleep? Youíre not alone. Thanks to the modern lifestyle, entire nations are groaning under a Sleep Debt that grows heavier by the night!

Try these two simple remedies:

  • Blend one cup of warm milk with four to five dates and a pinch of cinnamon powder. Sip at bedtime.Dates balance the nervous system, and milk contains a natural compound that promotes sleep.
  • Just before you get into bed, massage your palms and the soles of your feet with a good-quality warm oil, such as sesame oil. Relaxes the nerves and muscles† beautifully.

Ouch, Iím a Sitting Duck!

Piles can be a painful problem. And coupled with constipationÖthe ouch factor can get agonising.

  • Drink buttermilk spiked with freshly crushed black pepper and roasted and powdered cumin seeds.
  • Take two teaspoons of triphala churna or psyllium husk stirred in a glass of lukewarm water at bedtime, for easy bowel movement.

Uh, Uh, Iíve Got A Persistent Cough

Mix a little ginger juice with honey. Take this thrice a day for relief from cough. Ginger stimulates mucus to come out, and honey soothes the throat.

Canít Stand this Muscle Pain

Make a poultice of heated mustard oil and turmeric with a pinch of salt. Apply to the aching or injured area and leave on for about two hours. Turmeric is a natural anti-inflammatory and antiseptic. Mustard oil, with its warming nature, improves circulation and is a natural anti-bacterial agent.

If you have digestive problems or piles powder drinks that contain spirulina and other "greens" and probiotics might help. Greens helps me a lot.

Love the ideas -- do you think the milk remedies would work with RICE milk or ALMOND milk.
