Here are the few home remedies, few of them are given by my mom and few of them i had come acrossed in a book and tried it out myself....hope its useful to you all too

Home Remedy For Many Ailments

Tulsi Leaves Or Holy Basil
"The Queen of Herbs" OR u can even call it as a wonder herb as it can surely cure many ailments-Holy Basil is a healing balm for body, mind and spirit, and is known to bestow an amazing number of health benefits and its been proved to cure cold,cough, headache,old age weekness, High Blood pressure, acidity, kidney stone....

And if u have any of these there is a sure shot remedy for this
Take 30-35 clean tulsi leaves and crush to a paste and mix 1-2 tbsp of curds(should not be sour) with it and take this medicine on a empty stomach in the morning for 3 months & you can have anything only after one hour, this should be taken once in a day(if curds does not suit you u can replace it with honey)

In case of children 1/4 tsp of tulsi paste should be mixed with little honey(DO NOT MIX CURDS IF YOU ARE GIVING IT TO A CHILD)


In today's world most of them have this problem of eye strain as they work for long hours in front of the computer or can be caused by reading for long hours

So to reduce eye strain take 10 minutes rest in a complete dark room,this surely relieves strain and relaxes your muscles

Another way of resting your eyes is place your palms gently over the closed eyes, ( place it not so lightly or not so tightly) , do it for a few moments during the day and it definitely do try it out yourself...


Especially if you stay in abroad its very difficult to get an appointment with the dentist that easily, u will have to wait for days (this was my personal experience)....but few problems can be solved at home itself esp when your having toothache .....With my personal experience of having toothache i had used this remedy, so i recommend you to try this whenever u face this type of problem

Grind 8-10 tulsi leaves along with 5-7 peppercorns and place the paste between the affected cavity or another remedy is to boil few neem leaves in 2 cups of water and rinse your mouth few times with this water, you will def get relief from the pain

Or buy clove oil and apply with a cotton bud to the effected cavity in the morning and before sleeping
