Natural Remedies are my go-to solutions for common health issues that are not life threatening or that could cause further problems. They are tools in my toolbox to help me care for my family.
As the mom of a large family, being a nurse has come in very handy. My medical training has given me the ability to detect issues that otherwise might be overlooked!
While I know there is an important place for medical attention from doctors and even an emergency room, when appropriate, I try natural solutions first.
When using natural remedies, it is important to remember, that not all will work for everyone. That is why, in some of the articles, I give multiple remedies.
One work for one person, might not another.
We are all different and our bodies may require different things for a solution. So, be patient and don't give up!
Disclaimer: I am not a doctor and this post is not meant to to be a substitute for medical advice. I am sharing what has worked for me and my family. You are responsible for your healthy and the decisions made so seek medical advice. With Dr. Dalton and Dr. O'Connor, the medical team here at Cultured Palate, I want to give options that have worked for us.
Natural Remedies That Work
I have learned about natural remedies through various people. My father was a big believer in doing it the natural way. Friends along the way have enlightened me.
No matter the source, I always welcome adding to my toolbox of natural tools to use!
From remedies for children, to adults, I have found them to work often more quickly than antibiotics. After realizing just how effective they can be, I have looked for natural remedies first, if possible.
Can Natural Remedies Have Side Effects?
In the natural remedies I use, we have not had any significant side effects.
While they are possible, I have not experienced anything but a bit of nausea when drinking the gallbladder cleanse remedy or apple cider vinegar for other ailments.
Please use common sense - if you do, seek medical advice.
Natural Remedy for Pink Eye
My first experience with a natural remedy was with Tea Bags - A Natural Remedy for Pink Eye. It was truly amazing to see the quick results that black tea had on children with pink eye.
I never had to take a child to the doctor again for it!
What type of tea bags work best - plain old black tea like these that are available from my affiliate: tea bags.

Thanks to my father, and a natural solution he had, I learned How to Get Rid of Gallstones Naturally.
And yes, you can dissolve gallstones naturally!
Naturally Get Rid of Breast Infections
Having birthed ten children and breast feeding them all, breast infections were a common place problem for me. While living in Switzerland, a friend in Germany told me of a way to Get Rid of Breast Infections Naturally.
After that, I never needed antibiotics for a breast infection again! Seriously - I did continue to have them but not only did this natural remedy work, it worked faster than antibiotics!
Natural Solution for Bladder Infection
Having been pregnant so much of my life, bladder infections seemed to be part of it all - for me at least!
It was after finding the breast infection remedy that I began to find out just how many things apple cider vinegar is good for.

Getting Rid of Kidney Stones Naturally
I am convinced that the closest a man can come to experiencing the pain of childbirth, is to have kidney stones. They are no laughing matter!
Once again, my father came to the rescue with this recipe for Passing Kidney Stones Naturally. It is very similar to the gallbladder flush except for one key ingredient - lemon juice taken each morning.
Reversing Rheumatoid Arthritis
This could just possibly be my favorite of all the natural remedies because it has been so life changing for me and my family.
You can read all about it - it is called the GAPS Diet. Having rheumatoid arthritis since my teen years, I had suffered especially after the birth of each child with a flare up.
But, with this diet and its focus on gut health and probiotics, I went from not being able to cut my own pancakes or take a walk, to being active and pain free!
And, my blood work is now normal!
Being diagnosed with osteoporosis in my mid 40's, even before menopause, was alarming to say the least!
It was blamed on having so many children. You know, the toll pregnancy and breastfeeding took on my body.
A side benefit of going on the GAPS diet was remineralization of my bones as proven by bone density studies. See Reverse Osteoporosis Naturally.
But, to be honest, I don't need those tests (even though I took them) to tell me that I no longer have osteoporosis.
When you break your arm in two places, hoeing weeds and then afterward take falls landing on the same arm, without any problems, things have gotten better!
Get Rid of Eczema Naturally
After never having problems with my skin, eczema hit like a ton of bricks! I mean, I didn't even have many pimples as a teenager!
Eczema is another autoimmune problem like rheumatoid arthritis. It is also multi-faceted and has different trigger factors for different people.
Hopefully, you will find How to Get Rid of Eczema Naturally helpful in identifying your triggers and find natural solutions that work.
