Even if you prefer to avoid running to the doctor or pharmacy for every little cough or sniffle, you’d probably like to get some relief when a minor ailment strikes. These seven home remedies for some common complaints have been around and relied upon for generations for good reason—they work. In fact, they can be so effective that they are even recommended by doctors. When in doubt though, always be sure to consult your own doctor before beginning any treatment.

1. Nausea And Motion Sickness

Remedy: Ginger

Ginger can help slow down the natural movements of your stomach, settling it down. Try fresh ginger, ginger teas, or, when you’re on the go, ginger chews or candies are super convenient.

Remedy: Oatmeal

When you are so sunburned you can feel the heat coming off your skin, you need something to cool things down. Try an oatmeal paste. Just grind up some oats and add a little milk and honey. The oats will act as an anti-inflammatory while the milk and honey soothe the skin. Get the recipe here.
