Natural Remedies and Tips

ALOE A Natural Alternative

.

Soothe irritated skin with aloe. Snap off a stem of aloe plant or smooth on an aloe-based cream from your natural foods store to relieve discomfort of any of these skin problems:

> Acne

> Bed Sores

> Chapped Skin

> Cuts and Scrapes

> Dermatitis (inflammation of the skin)

> Eczema

> Poison Oak and Ivy

> Burns

> Ringworm

> Shingles

> Sunburn

Aloe plants are easy to grow, and they are the best possible source of the soothing aloe gel. Aloe products you can buy may lose their healing effects over time. But if you buy an aloe product, choose one with an aloe concentration of at least 70 percent. And avoid aloe vera extracts and reconstituted aloe products.

HANGOVERS Hang that Hangover

.

In the movies, hangover symptoms — headache, fatigue, nausea, vomiting, no appetite, raging thirst, poor vision, depression, giddiness — often seem amusing. But in real life, they are the unfunny and painful result of too much alcohol in the system, causing an unbalanced biochemistry in the body. The feeling of dehydration occurs because alcohol is a diuretic. The first and best was to avoid a hangover is not to drink. The second best way is not to drink to excess. For many people, excess, means when they “get a buzz.”

.

Here are seven others ways to avoid a hangover:

> Set reasonable limits for yourself and learn to say no.

> Drink slowly.

> Dilute your drinks with water or other nonalcoholic beverages.

> Don’t drink by yourself.

> Don’t smoke. Smoking makes the hangover worse.

> Eat a full meal before drinking; fatty foods are good choices because the fat seems to coat the stomach and cit down absorption of alcohol.

> Drink plenty of water

Some drinks are worse than others. Most alcoholic drinks contain added coloring and flavoring substances. Different substances in different combinations combined with alcohol are an almost certain formula for a hangover, say medical experts. The alcoholic beverages with the highest amount of these headache-producing substances are brandy, bourbon, and red wine.

Although there is little evidence that one alcoholic beverage causes less sever hangover symptoms than another, drinking several different kinds of alcoholic beverages at one sitting does seem to produce more sever hangovers.

.

How to deal with the morning after. Should you have a hangover, try:

> Two aspirin or buffered aspirin, or antacid for stomach upset.

> Lots of nonalcoholic beverages, particularly fruit juices loaded with vitamin C.

 > Sweet, bland foods.

There is no evidence that a “hair from the dog that bit you” will do anything but make the situation worse. Obviously, if your hangover is caused by too much alcohol in the bloodstream, having more will not help.

The only “cure” for a hangover is aspirin, (nonalcoholic) liquids, sleep and time.
