Some home health remedies are just old wives tales, but that is likely to be due to the fact that how they were originally used is lost. I do think that much can be attributed to home health remedies. That some foods or herbs can help you medically. That some things we do can affect our bodies, and how we feel. For instance if you put something in your body that is not good you drink milk to vomit so you can get rid of it. This is because the milk curdles in your stomach when it is not reacting normally. Drinking tea with lemon, the citrus helps break up congestion, so you can cough up phlegm, which is why you are told to drink tea with lemon when you have a cold. You may not realize but vitamin c is something we need for colds, well vitamin c is part of nature, part of a natural rather than man made remedy.

These are all good suggestions I know to do, but just haven't thought about them as being home remedies before. Now that you said that, it makes good sense.
