By that I mean they aren’t pills concocted in a laboratory and then shipped to a pharmacy where you have to go pick them up after visiting the doctor’s office for hours on end.

Have you ever had an upset stomach? Has there been a time when you’ve had trouble falling asleep? Maybe your teeth could do for a good whitening up…?
Instead of running to the store, why not just stay in the comfort of your own home and cure yourself of any ailments with these 6 natural home remedies?
1. Strawberries + baking soda
Are your teeth in need of some whitening up? No time for the dentist? No problem!
Try a quick mixture of crushed strawberries, a pinch of baking soda, and water. Simply add this paste to a toothbrush and scrub away for a few minutes ever few months in order to rid your teeth of those coffee or wine stains.
2. Linden flower tea
Next time your start running a fever, think about linden flower tea. This beverage both dilates blood vessels, which induces sweating, and stimulates the hypothalamus, which controls your temperature.
1 tablespoon of dried herb steeped in a cup of hot water for 15 minutes should do the trick.
3. Dark chocolate
Anytime you come against a nagging couch, the cure may simply be chocolate!
Sure, you could opt for codeine and deal with the possibility of negative side effects, like drowsiness. Or you could eat a square or two of dark chocolate and suppress that cough.
4. Garlic cloves
One of my favorite home remedies is garlic cloves pressed and mixed into warm water. Gargling this mixture a couple times a day will help to soothe a soar throat.
One of the absolute worst feelings is nausea. I can’t stand it. That’s why I always rush for the ginger ice chips when necessary. Ginger’s anti-nausea properties can help your stomach feel better throughout the day when you suck on a concoction of ginger-infused water that’s strained and then frozen.
Have you ever experienced insomnia? If you have, you know just how horrible it is. But the cure could be in your home right now…
Instead of popping sleeping pills, eat some cherries. Cherries are packed with melatonin, which the body uses to regulate sleep patterns.
