Ayurvedic Home Remedies for General Ailments

To create awareness about some of the useful ayurvedic remedies, this article includes simple home remedies, especially to prevent common health problems at their initial stage itself. Some of these are as follows:

Seasonal cough and cold - Take eight to 10 leaves of tulsi (Ocimum sanctum), a pinch of black pepper and half a teaspoon of ginger powder. Boil this in a glass of water until it becomes half. Take this decoction twice daily.

Bronchial asthma - Take a cup of water and add an equal quantity of milk in it. Now put three to five pieces of pippali (long pepper) in it and boil this until it is reduced to half the volume. Then sieve this decoction and take it in the morning. This remedy is advisable especially to prevent episodic asthmatic attacks during seasonal variations.

Constipation - Take equal quantity of saunf (fennel seeds), rock salt, dried ginger and dried harad (Terminalia chebula) fruit and make a fine powder. Take one teaspoon (5 grams) of this powder at bedtime.

Indigestion - Take ginger and cut it into small pieces. Add some salt and take a few of its pieces 15 to 20 minutes before lunch and dinner.

Raised cholesterol levels - Chew three to five garlic cloves, empty stomach in the morning. It should be avoided by the person suffering from acidity. One teaspoon of Triphala powder twice daily can also help decrease lipid levels.

Joint pain - Joint pain is a very common problem in elderly persons. It is mainly due to degeneration or osteoarthritis of joints like knee, spine, etc. Take 500 ml of sesame oil and add 50 grams of garlic. Boil it for 15 to 20 minutes and then keep this in a bottle after sieving. Use this oil for massage on the affected joint, followed by dry fomentation. It helps in reducing intensity and duration of joint pain.
