Mexican Home Remedies My Family Swears By

I am NO DOCTOR but these remedies have worked for my family and I.

If you are really sick, GO TO THE DOCTOR.

Remedies that I Swear by.

  • Lime shot. (Read my grandma’s remedy below.)
  • HYDRATE!!! Drink plenty of Water. But also mix it up a bit and drink some Orange Juice or Apple Juice.
  • Try eating Hot Foods. Like: Caldo de Pollo, Caldo de Res, Sopa de Fideo, Albondigas. (I promise i’ll have the recipe’s up on the blog soon.)

My Grandma swears by this remedy.

A shot of LIME. You heard right. Grab 3 Limes and rinse them underwater, slice them in half, squeeze the juice of all the Lime slices, drink it like a shot. If it burns it means you have an infection but it will go away with this remedy. You can also drink some warm water to help with the sourness.

I’ve done this remedy when I’m feeling that bug, and believe it or not, it has worked for me.
