Parsley that Bloat
Feel your body is keeping water reserves enough to tide you over until next year? Get rid of that bloated feeling with parsley. Since it’s a natural diuretic, it’ll help you flush away excess water in your body.
Curry for Joint Pain
It is a definite sign of aging when our joints creak and squeak. Thus, to alleviate that nasty joint pain, use some curry for your food seasoning and feel young again once those joint pains go away.
Oregano for Menstrual Cramps
Every female who has had menstrual cramps can tell you how it feels like there is a little monster carving pain from within and there’s almost nothing you can do about it but lay helpless and whimper in pain. But a teaspoon or two of oregano in your diet during your menstruation period can help you combat menstrual cramps. Thymol and carvacrol, antimicrobial agents found in oregano, help relax the uterine walls and prevent the painful contractions that give you menstrual cramps.
While pharmaceutical drugs are there to cure us of our pain, eating healthy using the right herbs to target our ailments also greatly help our body in healing faster.
