I am continually amazed and grateful to discover all of the simple, natural ways that God has given us to stay healthy and to deal with sickness, injuries and symptoms when they do occur.
I have personally begun to venture more and more into the vast array of natural remedies and holistics methods of healing over the past 5 years or so. Though I still haven't been able to delve into these studies quite as much as I have with nutrition and natural living in general, even the limited studies I have done have proven so fruitful!
It is a wonderful thing to have the confidence and knowledge to treat your family's (and your own) health challenges in simple, non-toxic ways that enhance the body's ability to heal, rather than covering symptoms with band-aid treatments or running to pharmaceuticals as a first resort.
There is a wealth of information out there on staying healthy and using safe home remedies to deal with sickness, injury, etc. These resources represent only a very small portion of that information, but I hope and pray that they serve as a place to start, to find some helpful solutions from myself and other women, and to be inspired to become more responsible for your family's health as you learn and research more.
These are the all of the remedy and prevention posts from my archives at the moment. As October progresses and new posts are published as part of Natural Home Remedies and Illness Prevention month, I will be adding each of them to make this resource a more complete place. I would suggest bookmarking this post as a place to return to later when you are in need of a remedy or wondering where it was that you read that post on ginger, or gut health, or immune boosts!
