The DIY Health and Wellness Blog mission is to empower readers with knowledge and tools to strengthen ourselves so we don't get sick (or need doctors) in the first place. And for the times when we do get sick, to provide alternative therapies that seek to strengthen our body's power to heal itself.
We try to give credence to western medicine when due, but also place high regard for oriental and other traditional and ethnic medical practices that view the body holistically, and whose focus is balance and enlivening our body's own intrinsic strength and well-being.
Yours for Health and Wellness!

Hot water

Eating hot soups or drinking hot drinks are well-known for easing discomfort in many places: the stomach, nasal passages, intestines and bowels, even tired or frazzled nerves. Ayurveda promotes drinking plain hot water for all of these ailments (and more), and for promoting physiological balance and well-being.
Try it. And like my mother said about gargling with warm salt water- 'if it helps this much when you're sick, just think what it can do for you when you're not!'
