Lots of people take tablets at the slightest sign of pain. These painkillers usually have a soothing effect, but in the case of ibuprofen, there are often secondary effects that come with it. Some may even be extremely dangerous for your health!
If you want to stop taking medication, you should know that there is a homemade remedy that is both simple and natural for a whole host of minor ailments... Drinking hot water.
A practice that has become very common
According to Praxis Vita, a Swiss magazine, tap water that’s been brought to the boil is just as effective for some pains and illnesses as several treatments and medications!
Anyone who is familiar with Ayurveda (traditional healing from India) will know that hot water is supposed to give the body more energy. But rest assured, the benefits of hot water have also been proven scientifically.
According to the site Plus Magazine, researchers at Erasme (Belgium) have demonstrated that hot water could also help fight against diabetes!
A pain and fat killer
If you drink hot water, there is a good chance that you’ll lose weight. As it turns out, your veins and arteries dilate when the body absorbs this hot drink which makes the blood circulate better and fat burn more easily.
If you suffer from abdominal pains (such as painful periods) or a stuffy nose, you can also drink hot water! The heat has an antispasmodic effect (it allows the body to fight against muscle spasms) and also helps to unblock your nose.
All that’s left to do now is to go drink some hot water! Check out the video above for all the details of this remedy that could do you wonders!
