Cold, earache, sore throat: These home remedies help

Doctors who also apply natural healing in addition to the usual treatment methods, rely on the experience medicine. For them, home remedies are a knowledge that has been passed on for decades, sometimes without the scientific proof – and yet often helps.

There is little data on whether home remedies work. The "Commission E" – an independent panel of experts for herbal medicines – has therefore set itself the task of exploring the effects of medicinal plants in more detail. In fact, it attests efficacy to many of them: sage, lavender, or flaxseed.

Critics of folk medicine complain that many of the studies on natural medicine, the criteria of scientific work not withstand: Sometimes there is no control group, another time, the number of study participants is vanishingly small. For the effect of herbal teas and wrapping, they blame the placebo effect. The mere expectation that they help, therefore, improves the symptoms of a disease. Which is not really bad news. We think: These seven home remedies are worth a try.
