little girl crying because she stubbed her toesDrugstores, supermarkets, and convenience stores have aisles dedicated to products that will attempt to cure all your aches, pains, stained teeth, headaches, diarrhea, cold and flu symptoms, upset stomach...well, you get the point. Every single sick part of our body, it would seem, has a drug remedy attempting to aid in our feeling better in no time.

If you look around your home, you can probably find a cure for your aches and pains in your laundry room, kitchen cabinets, and refrigerator. Prevention has 17 simple solutions for us, using everyday household items to cure our aches and pains, and the remedies are brought to us by Some of the remedies include: Drinking aloe vera gel dissolved in apple juice or water will help to get rid of bad breath; irrigating your nose with contact lens solution to relieve nasal congestion; rubbing liquid laundry detergent on a mosquito bite to help reduce irritation; massaging green tea into your scalp to help eliminate dandruff; using duct tape to get rid of a wart; and the essential 8 supplements that doctors trust to naturally fix us.

Home remedies can work just as effectively as a pill, but I think that the majority of people have turned away from home remedies, simply because it is easier to pop a pill or drink some liquid medicine than it is to actually fix themselves a cup of chamomile tea. I have had much success with acidophilus, chamomile tea, oatmeal, honey, and green tea. The next time you get a headache or a pimple, try the items you have in your home first before you spending your money on products that may not work, because the cure may be in your spice rack.
