2 More Home Remedies You Need

You may know I recently wrote an e-book on Chinese home remedies, remedies I have collected and used myself over the past 20 or so years.

I am always on the look out for new remedies that I can test and pass on to you. These past few weeks I have tried and tested 2 more.

The first one is Chinese pu erh tea. I've drunk this tea a few times over the years but always preferred green tea. That is until last week when for several days I had an uncomfortable bout of indigestion and bloating.

My wife, who is Chinese, suggested I try pu erh tea as it is well known here in China for improving digestion. An hour after my first pot I felt about 80% better. By the next day, after 2 more pots, I was completely better. I am now drinking pu erh tea daily instead of my usual green tea.

I don't have any further information on pu erh tea at this stage and I don't sell it myself, but there is plenty of online information. Check it out if you have digestive problems or want to prevent them. It is also said to be good for reducing weight and high cholesterol. I cannot confirm this myself though.

The second remedy I tested is not a traditional Chinese one but this hardly matters, particularly as it works...baking soda as an underarm deodorant. In my Chinese home remedies e-book I list lemon juice as an underarm deodorant and it works very well. But I find baking soda is even better.

Make sure you use pure baking soda with no aluminum in it. Put about a teaspoon of it in one hand, mix a tiny bit of water with it to dissolve it then rub it on your armpits. I find it works longer than lemon juice.

I hope these 2 remedies benefit you, as they have me. Any questions, as always, just let me know.
