Over the years, people have developed home remedies to treat almost every common ailment there is. Some may be found truly effective while some may not. There are even some quite bizarre home remedies suggested that turn out to be quite effective. Here are just some of them.
Sugar For Hiccups
It may seem bizarre to think that a teaspoon of sugar swallowed dry can be a remedy for hiccups. But it is actually quite effective. Experts believe that this happens because sugar seems to modify the nerve muscles that would otherwise tell the muscles found in the diaphragm to contract suddenly that would produce the hiccups.
Mouthwash For Blisters
A product that is used to keep your breath fresh can also be a remedy for blisters. Mouthwash that makes the breath feel fresh is also known as a powerful antiseptic. Dabbing a blister with mouthwash thrice a day can dry it out and makes it hurt less in the process.
Yogurt For Bad Breath
Eating yogurt may not just be healthy for you, it might even be able to help you get rid of bad breath. Yogurt contains a culture of live beneficial bacteria that may help suppress the levels of bad breath-causing bacteria in the mouth.
Baking Soda For Urinary Tract Infections
Adding baking soda by mixing 1/4 teaspoon of it in water and drinking it once a day can be a temporary remedy for a urinary tract infection until you visit your doctor to be more effectively treated. The reason why this home remedy works is that baking soda helps create a more alkaline environment in your bladder. This reduces the ability of the bacteria to multiply further.
