What we are witnessing around the world is a return to nature.
It’s safe to say that the entire lifestyle choices have changed for the Millenials and Gen Z.
More and more people are now going back to the traditional sources of medicine, food, hygiene etc., compared to the more complicated and sophisticated chemical products of the current age. Many people are turning vegan, choosing yoga postures instead of hitting gyms, and so.
And now, during this phenomenon, rather than depending on medicines or drugs, most are turning back the pages of the grandmothers’ diaries to cure their common ailments with natural remedies.
But before that,
What are Natural Remedies?
Natural remedies are any type of treatment that utilizes natural ingredients, such as fruits and vegetables to cure, alleviate or reduce the symptoms of an illness. Natural remedies can be used instead of taking prescription medications and over-the-counter medicine for a number of ailments and conditions.
Natural remedies should not be confused with alternative medicine or traditional medicine; alternative medicine is practised outside allopathic (or conventional) medical science, while traditional medicines constitute forms of treatment unique to certain cultures and histories – largely those in Africa, Asia, Latin America, North America, Oceania/Australia. In North America alone, there are about 50 000 different types of plants. While many so-called “natural” drugs have been synthesized from plant products or created artificially using herbal processes, natural remedies are mostly prepared from plants or plant materials.
But there is a common misconception that Natural Remedies are used for curing ailments only.
