An ancient Ayurvedic Proverb says "If the diet is wrong, medicine will be of no use.. If the diet is correct there will be no need for medicine".
To be honest, it is completely true. When we eat extremely processed foods, we aren't nourishing our bodies properly. If we fill ourselves full of antioxidants, it won't be too common that we will get sick!
When you have a cold or a sinus infection, mix honey, peppercorns, thyme, mint, turmeric, and garlic together and cook them down on low. It will clear up the problems in no time! I will eventually post some step by step instructions on how to make homemade drug-free cough syrups.
Many ailments can be easily treated with food and food products. If you are suffering from a headache, drink a glass of lemon water or lemon water with cayenne. If you are having problems with sinus drainage or PNS make yourself the master cleanse drink, 1/4 C Pure Maple Syrup, 1/4 C Organic Lemon Juice, 1 Tsp Cayenne Pepper, and 1 Quart of water. Not only will it boost your metabolism, but it will cut through the mucus. If you are having problems with constipation, make yourself some coconut oil candies, or homemade granola, or juice some apples & carrots, or eat some apples & celery. If you are suffering from vertigo, make yourself the detox water, 1 organic cucumber, 15-20 mint leaves, 1 organic lemon sliced, and 1 inch of ginger and 1 liter of water. If you are suffering from insomnia make yourself a smoothie with tart cherries & coconut milk or you can have some lavender tea.
The list goes on and on! You can also add in supplements to help yourself feel better on a daily basis. Sometimes medical intervention is needed, by that I mean conventional medicine. In cases such as surgery or other emergent things. I will never be the naturopath that tells you that you should never go to a doctor- after all I am friends with doctors and we all can learn from each other. If naturopathic & conventional medicine would work together we could help so many people!!
