Are you having a stomach pain, headache, hangover, upset stomach, a little bruise or a minor burn? Don’t panic as it will only cause more chaos and confusion. Instead of rushing to the chemist for first aid or making an appointment with your doctor, take deep breath and calm down. For treating some of the common health problems, you can try some quick and simple remedies.
For these remedies you mostly need ingredients from your refrigerator or kitchen shelf.
Here are some easy health solutions for you:
To relieve hangover: You can use honey to get rid of hangover symptoms. The potassium in the honey helps counteract the effects of the alcohol.

Once you start feeling better, add four teaspoon to a glass of water and sip it slowing along with your first meal.
To soothe mild burns: If you have onion at home, then you can easily treat minor burn. Onion juice has chemicals like sulphur compounds and quercetin that help to stop the burning sensation and also fasten up the healing process. Cut an onion in half and place it on the spot until the pain reduces.
To relieve headache and migraine: For any kind of headache, a cold compress will surely help to deal with it. You can warp a bag of frozen peas or some ice cubes on a thin towel and put it on the pain site for 10 minutes. Wait for twenty minutes and then repeat. The cold compresses blood vessels which eases pain.
To reduce puffy eyes: If you wake up in the worming with puffy eyes, you can easily get it treated with tea bags. Make your regular cup of tea using a tea bag. Place the used tea bag in the refrigerator until chilled. Squeeze out any excess fluid and then place the tea bag over puffy, swollen eyes for around 10 minutes. Apart from removing puffiness, it also reduces dark circles and makes you feel fresh.
