Most people know someone who has passed down their favorite natural or herbal remedy to cure or treat certain ailments, whether that be a grandparent, parent, or your worldly great aunt or uncle, or even family friend. If not, you must have at least heard of a few rumors or what is commonly referred to as an “old wives tale”, right? Memories of mom or grandma mixing up something you would have never before considered digesting or applying to your body are probably popping up in your mind right now. And, the stranger the mixture, the stronger the memory.
And, now more than ever with the world-wide resistance to antibiotics building, we are seeing a resurgence of these old natural remedies and treatments found around the world. But, perhaps you have only heard of 1 or 2 treatments that have been used for centuries. Yet, there are many more to consider that have been generated and used across the globe.
Fortunately, there is a lot of valuable information from our forefathers that we can tap into when it comes to treating ailments such as pain, colds, flu, skin irritations, and more.
One example why this is important is that there is an enormous problem with the current antibiotic resistance to bacteria that we are seeing. Stronger strains of staph infections are becoming a real problem to treat as a result. Suddenly, the need for natural remedies has increased to help support our overall health and well-being.
Picking up a secondary infection at the hospital when being treated for something else is common these days. This is reason enough to listen to our forefathers and take lessons on what they have used or continue to use to treat certain ailments naturally, rather than add to the antibiotic resistance.
