Quell nausea

Try frozen ginger chips. First, infuse fresh ginger in hot water. Strain, then freeze the concoction in ice cube trays.

Crush the cubes and suck the icy chips throughout the day to provide your tummy with a steady soothing dribble. Ginger’s antinausea properties are particularly effective during pregnancy or after surgery.

Stifle hiccups

Swallow 1 to 2 teaspoons of sugar. The dry granules stimulate and reset the irritated nerve that is causing the spasms of the diaphragm. Any coarse substance, such as salt, can work in a pinch, but sugar tastes best.

Natural remedies do not only work for simple cases. There are other complicated health problems that it can sort as well. One of this is the problem of cholesterol. This is a naturally occurring substance that is required for nerves, hormones and cells to function. For cholesterol to reach where it is needed in the body it has to travel in fatty acids inside the bloodstream. This can bring about a plaque buildup that reduces the size of the artery walls and restricts proper blood flow hence increasing the risk of a stroke or heart attack. This calls for the lowering of cholesterol to ensure such a scenario does not happen.

If you want to lower cholesterol, diet is key.  Here are the top foods and nutrients that can naturally lower cholesterol:

Omega-3 fats – Foods high in omega-3 fats can help increase HDL cholesterol and reduce risk of cardiovascular disease.

Foods high in soluble fiber – Soluble fiber binds cholesterol in the digestive system causing it to be excreted by the body. Include plenty of fruits, vegetables, sprouted nuts and seeds and other fiber rich foods.

Olive oil – Helps raise HDL cholesterol.

Garlic and onions – These two cholesterol reducing foods help lower LDL cholesterol because of their sulfur containing compounds which help cleanse the arteries.

Herbs – Add a variety of spices such as basil, rosemary and turmeric to your food which contain antioxidants that are cardio-protective and help lower cholesterol naturally.

Natural remedies do not just work for physical ailments but they can also work for behavioral complications such as ADHD. Most ADHD patients feel overprescribed and have to endure the side effects that come with their medication. Well there is a natural solution that could help.

1. Forgo food colorings and preservatives
Alternative treatments may help manage some symptoms associated with ADHD, including:

difficulty paying attention
organizational problems
frequently interrupting
The Mayo Clinic notes that certain food colorings and preservatives may increase hyperactive behavior in some children. Avoid foods with these colorings and preservatives:

sodium benzoate, which is commonly found in carbonated beverages, salad dressings, and fruit juice products
FD&C Yellow No. 6 (sunset yellow), which can be found in breadcrumbs, cereal, candy, icing, and soft drinks
D&C Yellow No. 10 (quinoline yellow), which can be found in juices, sorbets, and smoked haddock
FD&C Yellow No. 5 (tartrazine), which can be found in foods like pickles, cereal, granola bars, and yogurt
FD&C Red No. 40 (allura red), which can be found in soft drinks, children’s medications, gelatin desserts, and ice cream
2. Avoid potential allergens
Diets that restrict possible allergens may help improve behavior in some children with ADHD.

It’s best to check with an allergy doctor if you suspect that your child has allergies. But you can experiment by avoiding these foods:

chemical additives/preservatives such as BHT (butylated hydroxytoluene) and BHA (butylated hydroxyanisole), which are often used to keep the oil in a product from going bad and can be found in processed food items such as potato chips, chewing gum, dry cake mixes, cereal, butter, and instant mashed potatoes
milk and eggs
foods containing salicylates, including berries, chili powder, apples and cider, grapes, oranges, peaches, plums, prunes, and tomatoes (salicylates are chemicals occurring naturally in plants and are the major ingredient in many pain medications)
3. Try EEG biofeedback
Electroencephalographic (EEG) biofeedback is a type of neurotherapy that measures brain waves. A 2011 study suggested that EEG training was a promising treatment for ADHD.

A child may play a special video game during a typical session. They’ll be given a task to concentrate on, such as “keep the plane flying.” The plane will start to dive or the screen will go dark if they’re distracted. The game teaches the child new focusing techniques over time. Eventually, the child will begin to identify and correct their symptoms.
