8 Home Remedies That Actually Work


It turns out that there are some home tools that you can use to treat yourself without the need of doctor.

Duct Tape to Remove Warts

A group of scientists compared duct tape’s effectiveness with liquid nitrogen for removing warts. After two months of wearing duct tape and using a pumice stone about once a week to exfoliate the dead skin, 85 percent of patients’ warts were gone, whereas freezing only removed 60 percent.“The question is whether there is something in the chemical adhesive itself, or if the occlusion causes the destruction of the wart, the other thinking is that the duct tape causes irritation, which stimulates our body’s immune cells to attack the wart.”says New York City–based dermatologist, Robin Blum, MD.



Vapor Rub to Cure Nail Fungus

A basic Internet search results in a number of personal testaments to the medicinal ointment’s fungus-killing powers. If used consistently, vapor rub has been shown to get rid of not just the fungus, but the infected toenail, too, which will turn black and eventually fall off.



Oatmeal to Soothe Eczema

In addition to reducing inflammation, oats are thought to have an antihistamine effect. Most experts recommend choosing colloidal oatmeal and soaking the affected area for at least 15 minutes.



Yogurt to Cure Bad Breath

The neutralizing powers of yogurt and other probiotics treat both the stomach and the mouth from which the bad breath comes.



A Spoonful of Sugar to Cure Hiccups

In some research each of the patients was given one teaspoon of white granulated sugar to swallow dry, and for 19 of the 20 hiccup patients, the cure was immediate.





Bite a Pencil to Cure a Headache

By placing a pencil between our teeth—but not biting down—we relax our jaw muscles, which eradicates tension and reduces pain.





Gargle Salt Water for a Sore Throat

Most remedies call for a ratio of 1 tablespoon salt to 8 ounces of water, but it’s always better to opt for more salt rather than less and keep in mind that you are treating the symptoms—not the illness.





Olives for Motion Sickness

Enter olives, which contain tannins that, when released in the mouth, work to dry saliva—first eliminating the symptom and then the body’s instinct to follow suit.
