Home remedies are those treatments that can be done at home, usually with common household items and ingredients to alleviate ailments or improve health. Most have years of history with trial and error behind them, and many have been found to have true benefits in scientific trials. However, the advice in these articles is not intended as a substitute for professional medical care. Also, because some home remedies truly can affect your health, please let your doctor or other health care provider know about any home remedies you have tried for something they are treating. Some foods can affect the way a medicine behaves, so this can be important information. Home remedies may also include activities or other lifestyle changes besides food.
