Home remedies are a simple and readily available treatment for common ailments with spice, herbs, vegetables, and others. They can cure, manage, and prevent many problems when taken appropriately and proper guidance.

Ayurveda has given prime importance to self-care. Self-assessment of symptoms and self-care gives you a chance to reconnect with yourself. In today’s busy life, people often forget to take care of themselves and run to the doctor’s clinic for every small problem like acne, cold, cough, etc.

Knowing about Ayurvedic home remedies and practicing them helps rediscover your body’s potential to heal and unlock better health.

Our wise ancient researchers have gifted us with various home remedies. They observed the effects of spices and herbs on the body and bestowed them to us. You must have heard your granny telling you to practice specific home remedies for problems like acne, dull skin, constipation, cough, cold, and whatnot.

Home remedies have come down to us from generation to generation. Most Indian women avoid visiting hospitals for minor complaints like acne, constipation, hair growth, hair fall, and others. In India, we are aware of how wonderfully these home remedies cure problems like acne, acidity, constipation, hair fall, etc.

When I was a kid, my mother never gave me an antibiotic – a trend these days- for throat pain, cold, or cough. Instead, she gave me turmeric milk, steam inhalation, and tulsi kadha (decoction). I have never taken antibiotics for such ailments in my life. I am not saying medicines are harmful, but they should be consumed only when required. Taking antibiotics frequently may cause antibiotic resistance.

I know some people who take antibiotics as soon as they sneeze without even consulting their doctor. Such ailments can be easily managed at home without consulting a doctor. If you can take medicines without consulting a doctor, give your body a chance to heal itself with the home remedies that will support the process of healing and help you to cure quickly.

Ayurveda has been a part of Indian kitchens since ancient times. Indian cooking includes various spices and herbs, which help maintain our health in many ways. It is a well-known fact that turmeric, basil, cumin, cinnamon, and other spices are good for maintaining health, and they even prevent various illnesses and boost our immunity.

Various research studies have proved that these spices have significant health benefits on our body. Some pharmaceutical companies have started preparing pills of these spices. They might have forgotten or ignored the fact that these spices can be adequately absorbed if used while cooking the food or when used with the suitable adjuvant. Be smart enough to choose what is ideal for you. Do not jump on anything that has fancy packaging and unfilling promises.

If you are doubtful, don’t hesitate to consult your Ayurvedic doctor for your concern. If you have any queries regarding herbs and spices, we would love to assist you at ayurvigyanam@gmail.com.

Home remedies can help manage some health problems, but they can not replace the advice or treatment given by a doctor. One should take home remedies only up to the level, which can not harm them.

Most people do not bother to take care of their bodies in the way it demands, and as a result, they start suffering from symptoms like hair fall, dull skin, indigestion, sleeplessness, constipation, and others. Whenever your body is showing some signs, it is alarming you to stop abusing and start caring. Ayurveda grants us various home remedies in our hands that we can use to manage such temporary symptoms.

Home remedies can only help you to cure minor ailments and manage with some chronic diseases as well. For small problems like acne, constipation, hair fall, cough, common cold, sore throat, weak immunity, etc. you can use home remedies given to you by your granny. But, for any significant illness like high cholesterol, heart problems, hypertension, diabetes, etc. it is better always to consult your Ayurvedic doctor. Your doctor will recommend the home remedy according to your body type and stage of your condition.

Sometimes, a simple home remedy may not work for your symptoms, and you may require herbal support and dietary advice along with the home remedies. It is better to consult an Ayurvedic doctor if you have any doubts regarding your symptoms or home remedies.

Never try any random home remedy told by your neighbor who got relief from it. You have different requirements, and your neighbor has separate necessities depending upon the body type. What may be working for him or her may not be useful for you. Consult an Ayurvedic doctor for your symptoms, which you feel are getting worse day by day.

When used correctly, home remedies help treat common ailments and prevent illness and improve overall health and immunity. Unlike synthetic pills, home remedies are the most natural way to vanish away from your symptoms.
