My grandmother swears by “hot toddies” as a cure for colds. What exactly is a hot toddy, and does it really work?
Before hundreds of cold medicines became available at the local drugstore, certain home remedies were probably a lot more fun to take. And if you sipped ‘em enough, you certainly felt better because eventually you couldn’t feel a thing! There are many variations on the hot toddy, but start with juice, honey, or tea, and add the liquor of your choice. Here’s one simple recipe to try as a last-ditch effort to cure a cold: Squeeze the juice from half a lemon into a mug of boiling water, pour in a shot of whiskey, and add honey to taste.
Do you know of any quick remedies for gas that don’t require a whole lot of prep time or effort on my part?
Lemon water jump-starts your stomach into action and helps your digestive system work more efficiently. When you’re having trouble with gas caused by poor digestion, squeeze the juice from a slice of lemon into a glass of water and drink it before and after meals. It’ll take you a minute to prepare, but the benefits will last for hours.
I work all day, and then come home and have very little time before I have to get started on my evening chores. What can I do during my little break to help take the pain out of my feet?
Just sit back, relax, and prop up your feet. Raising your tired old dogs gives them a chance to rest, and allows gravity to drain away some of the swelling that’s contributing to your discomfort. For it to be really effective, though, you must raise your feet higher than your head.
