The Truth Behind Home Remedies

It's no surprise that everyone has their own home remedy for certain ailments, but did you know that some may be rooted in scientific fact? The Daily Mail looked at a few popular do-it-yourself cures and asked doctors to explain how they could work. Do you stick your fingers in your ears to help a sore throat? According to doctors, it may help because the ears are full of nerves that are linked to the throat. And blowing on your thumb to stop palpitations may be successful because the thumb has its own pulse. Said one doc, "If you can calm that pulse down, you're effectively calming the heart down too." And wearing socks to bed may be doing more than just warming your feet. Some people swear by it as a cure for insomnia and doctors say it could be because warm feet help your body's internal temperature get to the most optimal level for sleep. Click here for more scientific reasons behind your favorite home remedies.
