Anybody who knows me, knows I hate taking medicine, so I try to find natural ways to cure or relieve certain pains and discomforts.
I would like to share with you, my home remedies that I use to stay healthy and prevent certain health problems.
PLEASE, speak with your physician before trying any of these just in case you’re allergic to any of the ingredients AND get regular check-ups. I’m not saying I don’t go to the doctors. I’m saying I prefer instead of medications for certain type of ailments.
I have acid reflux. So when the heartburn or the acid feeling starts to do the dance in my stomach instead of grabbing the Pepcid or Mylanta I make a “Ginger Banana” Smoothie.
Ginger has long been touted a remedy for queasiness including heartburn, as well as nausea and motion sickness. Today I’m showing you how I team ginger and bananas, which acts as a natural antacid. So before you reach for an over-the-counter product for relief, whip up one of these soothing smoothies–it just may do the trick.
1 banana, sliced
3/4 cup (6 ounces) vanilla yogurt
1 tablespoon honey
1/2 teaspoon freshly grated ginger
In a blender, combine the banana, yogurt, honey, and ginger. Blend until smooth.
