Some people don’t really believe in home remedies. They think that home remedies are traditional knowledge that is being passed from their grandparents and not relevant to be used for now.
It is true that some of the remedies might not work on some people and in a few conditions. Therefore, scientists have been working on proving that certain remedies can greatly help to cure some of the health issues. So, here are five home remedies that can treat some of your problems.
However, if you have a chronic health condition and on medications, do check with your doctor before trying these remedies.
1. Peppermint oil for headaches
According to a few studies, peppermint essential oil can numb the pain of a tension headache and cool the skin. To use this remedy, add a few drops of olive oil to the peppermint essential oil to prevent skin irritation. Apply the mixture onto your forehead and temples.
2. Sugar for hiccups
Have tried many ways to treat hiccups? Here is another way you can try. Claire Martin, a nutritionist said that grainy sugar crystals force you to swallow harder. Thus, it will reset your diaphragm to stop spasms. Mind to take a spoonful of sugar the next time hiccup hits you.
3. Aloe for burns
Aloe has been our all-time favorite to treat burns. According to Dr. Purvisha Patel, a dermatologist said that aloe can be a very soothing remedy for burns. Make sure you use pure aloe. However, you should still see a doctor for serious burns.
4. Thyme tea for coughs
Studies found that using thyme with primrose or ivy can relieve the frequency and duration of coughs. It is a natural expectorant that soothes the respiratory tract. In a cup of hot water, add two tablespoons of fresh thyme or one tablespoon of dried thyme. Add some honey to taste.
5. Honey for wounds
Apply honey directly to a wound and let it do the magic. The enzyme in pure honey can cause a chemical reaction that will release an antiseptic chemical. Scientists recommend manuka honey which contains an additional compound that can increase its effectiveness in treating wounds.
Woman Shares 12-Month Trial of Spider Bite Turns Into A ‘Crater’
Recently, a woman has shared the effects of a bite from a spider known as the ‘Brown Recluse Spider’ on social media. Injuries from the spider bite have caused the victim’s skin to have holes as a result of the infection.
The effects of the bite started from a red lump and then the woman’s skin had holes with black wounds, this condition occurred after a few weeks of being bitten by the spider.
The scars from the spider bite are still visible even after a year after the bite.
The woman also uploaded a picture of the ‘Brown Recluse Spider’. A friend of the victim shared the story on Reddit.
“He saw a doctor within 45 minutes after being bitten”.
“14 days of antibiotics, three times a day. Daily treatment for the first two weeks and once a week since”.
“The spider that bit him was caught and put in a plastic zip to be shown to the doctor”.
It takes 12 months of medical treatment to treat a bite because the soft tissue damage caused by Brown Recluse spiders can take months to heal. Brown Recluse spiders are usually not known as aggressive. Although bites rarely cause death, they can cause significant “soft tissue destruction” that takes months to heal.
This species is usually found only in South and Central America and usually grows to a length of between 6 and 20 mm (0.2 and 0.8 inches) – but they can grow larger. These spiders are also said to be the second most venomous spider in America.
Maradona Quarantined After Bodyguard Shows Signs Of COVID-19
BUENOS AIRES, Oct. 28 — Football legend Diego Maradona was quarantined on Tuesday at his residence in Argentina after one of his bodyguards came down with symptoms of COVID-19, according to his press agent Sebastian Sanchi.
The bodyguard of the former footballer, and now coach of Argentine football club Gimnasia y Esgrima La Plata, is to undergo a test on Thursday to determine whether he has COVID-19, Sanchi told Xinhua.
“If he tests positive, Maradona will have to be swabbed (for the virus) like it or not,” added Sanchi.
Earlier this month, Maradona, who will turn 60 on Friday, had tested negative for COVID-19.
Melbourne’s Hard-Won Against COVID-19 After A Marathon Lockdown
Melbourne has been on lockdown for a very long time just to flatten the curve of infection for COVID-19. As a result, all the residents have succeeded to be free from COVID-19 infection for a long period of time. Melbourne’s grinding second coronavirus lockdown began in the chill of winter so they could control the number of people outdoor.
At the starting of July, Australia’s cultural capital was confronting the terrifying reality of another deadly wave of infections that is the second wave of Coronavirus. More than 110 days later after the first wave of infection, experts say it is emerging as a world leader in disease suppression but with a higher chance of getting an infection and also more severe symptoms alongside places including Singapore, Vietnam, South Korea, New Zealand, and Hong Kong.
A biosecurity professor at the University of New South Wales’ Kirby Institute that is Raina McIntyre said that Australia’s response towards COVID-19 infection had been “light years ahead” of the US and also the UK. She also added, “It is just thoroughly shocking. When we think of pandemics we don’t think that well-resourced, high-income countries are going to fall apart at the seams, but that is exactly what we have seen”.
To control the dangerous and deadly infection, all of Melbourne’s five million residents will see an end to strict stay-home orders that put an entire city into a type of protective custody for the sake of their own health. When the restrictions are finally lifted, Melburnians will have endured one of the world’s longest and also toughest lockdowns.
It has been such a controversial, calamitous for jobs, and crushingly hard for many, but health specialists believe it has worked to prevent them from getting the Coronavirus infection. There is cautious optimism that with very low case numbers, the worst is over.
Professor Sharon Lewin who is the director of the Doherty Institute in Melbourne said, “I’m pretty proud of what we have achieved here”. He also stated, “The outcome has been extraordinary but not without its pain, though”.
Melbourne has reported no new daily cases for the first time since the month of June. In the early month of August though, it was recording more than 700 daily, and dozens of people were dying. Because of that, Professor Sharon Lewin stated that “Europe and the US are facing enormously high numbers. In Victoria, we had an isolated outbreak pretty much just in Melbourne, and the rest of the country had extremely low, and in many states zero, numbers”. He then added, “We had absolutely no choice but to go into a significant lockdown if we were going to rejoin the rest of the country, and that gave us motivation”.
Face coverings have become absolutely mandatory in Victoria, and a night-time curfew blanketed Melbourne. Life retreated indoors, while on the front-line of an invisible war, a growing number of casualties included health care workers and nursing home residents. The true impact on mental health may never be known.
