We can into this world in the most natural state…yet once we are here, we often forget what that means. If we have a headache we reach for a pill, if we have a cold, we reach for a pill, if we have a pain, we reach for a pill…when really Hippocrates said it best in 400 BC… Let thy food be thy medicine and thy medicine be thy food!
There are a plethora of natural cures for all that ails you. Don’t take my word for it, try them out for yourself!
Got a headache? How about a natural mint-cucumber compress?
2-4 slices of fresh cucumber
2 tsp dried mint
1 cup water
According to herbal lore, the cooling combination of sucumber and mint can be effective in silencing the pain of headaches, especially behind the eyes.
Bring water to boil,
steep the mint for 10-15 mins (covered),
strain and refrigerate for usage
Dip – to dampen – a washcloth in the cold tea
Place 2 cucumber slices over each eye and place compress over your eyes and forehead and rest quietly until pain subsides.
