Natural remedies : including but not limited to homeopathy, Ayurvedic remedies, herbal, natural, unconventional, Eastern remedies, tribal remedies, etc.
I’ve been interested in this for decades with my severe medical conditions. Here are some of my favorites:
Pain relief: arnica Montana and hemp. I LOVE this store on Etsy and her arnica & hemp salve works wonder for me! I have cervical spinal damage and other damage from a car accident, and this helps immensely. I can’t take OTC and prescription painkillers due to another medical condition, so this is a godsend. Occasionally I take arnica via pill, usually Hylands, as needed.
Migraine relief: two places on Etsy have a headache relief cream that helps a lot. I apply on the back of my neck. Ingredients in both are mint of some sort. I don’t know if this means that mint tea helps migraines.
Soap: mostly goat milk or otherwise handmade soaps. I use this for shampoo and conditioner. I think it makes my hair healthier, but most importantly it helps me keep certain chemicals out of my life.
** question: menstrual cramps (sorry to all the men out there about being blunt … but if you have women in your life they all know what I’m referring to). . I used to take two ibuprofen a month and that helped, but I can’t take ibuprofen anymore. It’s a quandary. Then my doctor said acetaminophen but I can’t take that either and haven’t bought it for decades due to liver illness. Hm. I just bought a salve for this and also some homeopathic pills from Amazon. Anyone have any other ideas?
I can’t take ibuprofen because I’m being treated for a chronic and possibly terminal stage 4 illness, hence the motivating factor for life changes.
I also bought a book on Ayurvedic remedies so I am diving into that slowly.
I love fennel seeds as natural after dinner bites.
Turmeric is my close friend.
And hot food helps with migraines, sometimes.
