We have all experienced some physical accidents in our
kitchen, which need immediate assistance. Sometimes we have to suffer
from them because we have very little self-rescue training ideas that
can prevent injuries from worsening or help them heal faster. The
following are some home remedy secrets I want to share with you.
For minor burns, I suggest applying a few drops of sesame
oil to the affected area, sprinkling some salt on top of the oil. Leave
it on for a few minutes. If you still experience a burning sensation,
re-apply oil and salt mixture to the burn. This mixture stops the
burning pain and helps decrease swelling to prevent blistering from
occurring. For large, severe burns go to the emergency room.
Some food poisoning symptoms include nausea and vomiting.
Mung Beans are very helpful in alleviating these symptoms. Cook 1 cup of
mung beans in 6 cups of water for 30 minutes or grind 1/4 cup of mung
beans and stir into 2-3 cups of distilled water then strain the tea and
drink several times a day. If you have stomach pain or cramps, cook 10
slices of ginger root in 2 cups of water for 5 minutes
then drink it all.
When you are exposed to a very cold environment or feel
chills, to prevent from coming down with a cold, cook 5 slices of ginger
and 2 whole, uncut stalks of green onions in 2 cups of water. Cover the
pot and cook for 5 minutes on a medium flame. Drink tea hot and if
possible, take a nap afterwards. Slight perspiration should be expected
to disperse the cold.
Chronic Diarrhea for Children
Since adults bodies are much more complex than children,
the following remedy is most effective for children. Simply stir fry 1
cup of dry, white rice in a skillet, stirring constantly until golden
brown then add 6 cups of water and simmer for 30-40 minutes on low heat.
Have children eat a small bowl of porridge daily for 2-3 days. For
younger children, feed them the broth portion of this porridge only.
