Us men don’t often like to take medicine, and when it comes to going to the doctor most of us can be reluctant. And that’s okay, your wife or partner has probably come to accept it. But if you find yourself in need of a quick fix or a natural way to sooth some minor health issues, then check out these 5 home remedies you can drink.



  1. Baking Soda

Yep, that little box that sits in your fridge to absorb all the nasty odors and stuff? That’s baking soda and it has many, many uses. Now, whatever you do, don’t use the box in the fridge. Go buy a new one to keep in the cupboard for less than a dollar.

Baking soda is a great natural remedy for acid reflux and heartburn. Dissolve a spoonful in warm water and drink it. Actually, you may have to chug it because it doesn’t taste the best, but it works! Acid reflex problems be gone!



  1. Cinnamon

Who knew that almost every cupboard in North America holds the key to healthy living? Researchers have concluded that consuming cinnamon on a regular basis has a plethora of health benefits when consumed. Whether you prefer ground, extract, essential oils, or chewing on a piece of raw bark, cinnamon should be taken seriously. It’s an antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-diabetic, anti-microbial, immune-boosting, cancer and heart disease-protecting super spice. Cinnamon is definitely one of the most beneficial spices on Earth, just don’t try and eat a spoonful by itself!



  1. Aloe Vera

This is the gel-like stuff that comes from inside the leaves of Aloe Vera plants. Just tear a peace off a plant and apply. It doesn’t get more natural than that. It’s great to sooth burns and heal wounds. But it’s also awesome as juice! Aloe Vera juice contains tons of fiber to promote good gut health and bowel regularity, but also nutrients to help your skin from the inside out, reducing dandruff and promoting healthy new hair growth by reducing sebum, or oil, on the scalp.



  1. Lemons

Start your day with a cup of warm lemon water. I know, it sounds disgusting but it has soooooo many benefits. After my first week of substituting coffee with fresh cut lemons in hot water, it has become a new morning ritual. It’s chock full of vitamin C, B6, A, E, folate, niacin thiamin, riboflavin, pantothenic acid, copper, calcium, iron, magnesium, potassium, zinc, phosphorus, and protein. *mind blown*



  1. Hops

Yep, the stuff used to make beer. Of course, this would be on this list! The hops plant produces these buds that, when dried out, can be steeped into a tea like other herbs. It tastes kind of like green tea (so, maybe add a bit of honey) and helps aid in digestion, stress relief, bladder control, cleaning your kidney and liver, and even keeping you “regular”.


There you go, gentlemen. 5 things you can find in your house right now (aside from the hops which you can buy at any health food store, farmers market or by clicking right here) that would make great home remedies and awesome alternative medicine beverages.

That’s not to say that you shouldn’t seek medical help if you have a serious issue or something. Definitely, go see your doctor if you are bleeding from an orifice that you shouldn’t be or your acid reflux is so bad you vomit in your sleep. Yes, do go.
