The best days I have had with my gran, were the days where she would tell me stories of how things used to be. She would start off every story with the words, ‘You know, when I was about your age…’ Sound familiar?
A lot of the knowledge that I have gained from my gran sounds absolutely absurd, such as her famous “heavy-chest cure” of ginger in boiling water, everyday before you go to bed. My personal favorite is her remedy for dry/dull hair: vinegar!
I used to think maybe her age went to her head as she was so adamant these would work. Now I can say, never be too afraid to try things because, believe it or not, those home remedies do in fact work.
Generally people form a “comfort-zone” which blocks out all the things we’re aren’t used to away and keeps all the things we’re comfortable with close. It’s fine to sometimes stick with what you know is best, but sometimes a simple home remedy, out of your “comfort-zone”, could become your best friend. The one home remedy that stuck out for me was the simple combination of honey and cinnamon.
The Natural, Strange Miracle Working Home Remedy: Honey and Cinnamon
Doctors bills and medical aid bills are always high. A simple trip to the doctor, for something as small as the flu, can put a dent in one’s wallet. The simple yet wonderful tasting combination of honey and cinnamon, in different quantities, have been proven to cure a number of illnesses.
This strange miracle worker, works well together for a number of interesting reasons such as:
- Did you know, cinnamon has been used by the Chinese for medicinal purposes for over 2000 years?
- Honey has a rich curing history dating back to Greek, Roman and Egyptian texts.
- Cinnamon alone has been shown to treat digestive problems, menstrual discomfort and joint pain because of its high content of cinnamaldehyde (which is an anti-inflammatory molecular compound, which gives cinnamon its flavor and smell.)
- Honey also has anti-inflammatory properties and is full of amino acids. Vitamin C, riboflavin, vitamin B6, Niacin, Folate, calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium and Zinc.
