Home Remedy Or Healthcare?

You have a body? Well, you are susceptible to thousands of diseases then. No matter how protective you are towards your body, diseases have a way of sneaking into it and more often than you would prefer, dig in their heels and refuse to budge. And, if you are forty, brace yourselves for any eventuality.

In such eventuality, what you will do is what everyone else is doing… Go scurrying to a clinic and then graduate on to a visit to a specialist and maybe plunge into a hospital bed.

Government healthcare in the US has a budget of 24% of its GDP. When you find this is more than the nation’s defense budget, you realize that healthcare is a more serious business than North Korea’s missiles. Even a casual visit to get rid of the pain that a pin prick causes to the back of your seat drains a substantial sum from your valet.

Some 41% of the citizens do not have an insurance cover. Are you one of them? If you are and are afflicted with some major disease, you are in for a life-time of misery. All your resources will deplete in front of your eyes in treating the condition that you find yourself in.

Will you believe if someone told you that succor lies in your resorting to home remedies for most of your adverse body conditions? For instance, you have a cold that is colder than the Arctic in winter. What is more, it has sort of taken permanent residence in your chest. You have been going through hell trying not to blow your nose off your face… Weeks have passed and no known medication seems to work at all!

A liberal pinch of powdered black pepper and a spoonful of honey dissolved in hot water will transform your chest into sub-Saharan Africa, devoid of any trace of any cold. You must sip the concoction while it is still hot. Do not expect any miracle though! Be warned it is not instant cure. You will surely feel the difference the next day but will only be completely cured in 5 or 6 days.

Have you been smashing full length mirrors at home and hotel lobbies? Does the man in the mirror disgusts you with his belly protruding out like a giant pumpkin has lodged itself therein? Pay no heed to him. Instead, get busy with the following daily routine to mock at the man in the mirror in a month.

Take a ripe ash gourd, cut it into pieces and put the pieces in a mixer/grinder. Reduce them to a pulp. Drink it up. You are not going to relish it but remember it is not your dinner that you are having. If it turns out that you are just not up to it, add just A LITTLE sugar. And, may be shut your eyes tight, if it helps.

Or, you can take 4 or 5 garlic cloves and roast them without getting them burned. Just pop them into your mouth to chew. It is not repulsive, I can tell you: Roasting takes away the awful smell from the condiment. Or, you can boil them in milk and can swallow the whole thing. This too will reduce the unwanted flab and in time, completely get rid of it.

Either of these measures every morning in empty stomach will see a transformation take shape in your body. A month into the future will take you back years into the past when you had no pumpkin growing out of your stomach.

It all may sound too easy and unbelievable. So were most of the technical advances of today some 30 years ago.

The proof of the pudding is in the eating, isn’t it?
