It’s no secret that a well-balanced diet, regular physical activity and meditation/yoga (or whatever helps you deal with stress) lead to a healthy life. However, sometimes we need a little extra to pick us up. It could be a cold/flu, a toothache or nausea that’s bothering us, but whatever the cause of our current health issues, Nature usually has a remedy.
