5 Top things to stay stocked with
1) Apple cider vinegar
For all over heath, Apple cider takes the cake, but it can also be used for a number of things other than health. First let's go over some things that ACV can be used medicinally as.
stabilize blood sugar,
Reduce swelling caused by diabetes, or due to injury.
Skin irritations (bug bites, sunburns)
stabilize blood pressure
repelling fleas off pets
This is only a few of the benefits of stocking ACV. Using this for everyday health, mix a tablespoon per glass of water morning, noon and night.
When using on hair, mix equal parts with water, shake, and pour through hair.
When using to disinfect, mix half a cup per gallon of water.
2) 100% local raw Honey.
Honey is a powerful antibiotic. You can use honey to help with cold, flu, allergies, sinuses, sore throats, burns, cuts, scrapes, bee stings.. The power of honey is an endless mystery. It can be used to clot blood, for examples a cut. a good smear of raw honey over a cut will make it quit bleeding. a thin layer over a burn will make it quit stinging. In my house, honey is taken every time someone is feeling a bit under the weather. The cold which usually last anywhere from 5 to 6 days, gets cut in half because of the use of honey.
Local honey is your best bet. Not only are you helping a bee farmer out, but local bees very likely have pollinated some of the same plants you are allergic to, and eating their honey will help stamp out a bad allergy season. Find them at your farmers market..
**DO NOT FEED HONEY TO CHILDREN UNDER 2- IT MAY BE USED ON THEIR SKIN, BUT NOT ORALLY INGESTED!**
You can use cinnamon in combination with both ACV and honey. I don't take honey without cinnamon. Taking honey and cinnamon cures up a sore throat in 24 hours.
The benefits of cinnamon include
helps replenish glucose levels in type 2 diabetes
It will improve colon health
fight against heart disease
and cure indigestion..
If you have a green thumb why not try growing the Cassia Cinnamon plant. You can use both bark and flower of the plant for medicine.
4) Baking soda
Baking soda is one of the most useful things to keep stocked up in your house. Baking soda has not only a long list of health benefits but can be used in a number of different ways. You can use it as shampoo, with ACV, or clean your house. Refresh carpets, laundry, the fridge. The list goes on. Let's list some of the health benefits..
