There is no shortage of alternative health remedies out there. Various foods, herbs and supplements are available that claim to cure everything. This article has 5 interesting ones that remedy various ailments. Some are more commonly known and all have been supported with some research.
At home I try to use some natural remedies for general health. I'm not sure if taking one specific thing cures anything but I think if you incorporate healthy choices into your lifestyle then they will all combine for overall good health. Recently I have started making my own teas from lemon balm and peppermint that I have grown in my garden. Combined with some local honey it is a great tea that may help with colds. Either way, I like it and I'm sure it has some positive properties. These are the kinds of simple things that we can all do without spending loads of money in the supplements aisle.
