We have all heard of natural and home remedies for many common ailments that plague people every day. Believe it or not, some of them have actually been proven through scientific studies to work! So, whether Grandma tells you about it or you look it up on the internet, I am sure you will find many recommendations for natural remedies. Below I will list a few of the more commonly used herbs, teas, and supplements that are tried and true. Some of these are found in foods that we eat and some are available as supplements that we can purchase at most pharmacies. These natural ways of curing common ailments are more and more appealing to people as we become more aware of what we are putting into our bodies. I found this to be very interesting and will be trying some of them myself! Of course, I would never recommend stopping a medication prescribed from your doctor. Always check with your physician before stopping or starting a new medication or supplement.
