For generations, families have been using natural ingredients and common things found in the home to treat a plethora of common medical problems. Providing you’re not suffering from something really serious, there are lots of neat tricks for making yourself feel better by using things that you’ll find at home – whether it’s something in your fridge, pantry or cupboards!

Here are nine of some of the most surprising remedies that you may never have heard of that could help you reduce the effects of earache, headaches and even athlete’s foot.

1. A spoonful of honey…

It makes the medicine go down, but also stops you from needing the medicine in the first place. Did you know that a spoonful of honey is the ultimate home remedy for a cough? No? Well, you do now.

The trick has been pretty well known for generations, but surprisingly, studies have now confirmed that honey is actually even more effective at calming a cough than drugs you can buy over the counter. Honey’s natural thickness, and stickiness, means that it lines the throat and soothes the mucous membranes that become irritated and dry when you’re ill.

Make sure you’re using raw honey and take one spoonful whenever you feel like you need it. You’ll be amazed at how effective it can be.
