Folk remedies treat a variety of diseases: gynecological diseases, diseases of the heart and blood vessels, bronchi and lungs, kidneys, liver, etc. Many skin diseases can be defeated only with the help of decoctions and infusions of medicinal herbs.
Alternative medicine remains as popular today as it was centuries ago. In ancient times, they were treated only with herbs, fruits, vegetables, beekeeping products and other improvised means, because there were no specialized medicines. Today medicine has reached such a level that it would seem that it should long ago and firmly break out to the forefront, but the role of folk remedies in human life remains quite significant. Why? And what do they continue to treat with folk remedies?
It's very simple: homemade remedies for the treatment of diseases help patients get rid of their illness. Moreover, scientists all over the world recognize the effectiveness of many such remedies, and that is why medicinal herbs and their derivatives can be found in many traditional preparations. Most often, folk remedies are used to treat broncho-pulmonary diseases, diseases of the heart and blood vessels, skin, kidneys, digestive tract organs, genitourinary system, etc.
Kidney diseases can be treated with rose hips, calendula, lingonberries and plantains. Oats are indispensable in the treatment of liver diseases, and birch sap has proven itself well in the treatment of urolithiasis. With the help of garlic, lemon and honey, you can cleanse the blood vessels, and the hawthorn fruit tincture is a salvation for “heart patients” and hypertensive patients.
At all times, women have treated gynecological diseases with decoctions of medicinal plants. With inflammation of the genitals, St. John's wort is brewed, and with painful and irregular menstruation, elecampane. Wormwood infusion is capable of killing a large number of pathogenic microorganisms - pathogens of sexually transmitted diseases.
Chamomile infusion is effective for inflammatory reactions of various etiologies. For constipation, buckthorn bark is brewed, and for diarrhea, oak bark is brewed. Stomach ulcers respond well to treatment with sea buckthorn oil. Plantain is indispensable in the treatment of various skin diseases, just like celandine. Many people grow plants such as aloe and golden mustache on their windowsills precisely in order to take advantage of their healing power at the right time. Both of these plants can be used in the treatment of bronchitis, asthma, eczema, etc.
Brewer's yeast copes well with skin diseases, and can also be found in recipes for diabetes. Even such a terrible disease as cancer is successfully treated with medicinal plants and mushrooms containing poisonous substances. These include hemlock, wrestler, fly agaric, etc. Alternative medicine does not bypass the side of the central nervous system. It is customary to treat headaches, stress and depression with valerian root, strawberry juice, sage, mummy, etc.
