Raw Potato Remedies
You would never guess it, but a raw potato is a lot more than a simple ingredient featured in many tasty meals. Raw potatoes have an innate ability to heal. Though they look innocent, but they’re quite powerful. Some of the healing powers of potatoes include:
- A Cure for Warts: Rub a piece of freshly cut raw potato on your wart, allowing the juice to cover the wart. Do this daily and watch the wart fade away! The natural acid of the potatoes kill the wart.
- A Soothing Treatment for Burns: The next time you get a superficial burn, including a sunburn, mix some shredded raw potato with a bit of water and make enough paste to cover the burn. Let it set for several minutes and you should feel the pain begin to subside. Potato peels provide moisture and they also have antibacterial properties that help in healing.
- A Headache Reliever: The next time you have a headache, reach for a raw potato instead of a pain relieving drug. Gently rub your temples with the sliced potato until the pain subsides. The alkaline juice of the potato neutralizes pain and improves circulation.
- Easing Tooth Pain: Chill a potato in the refrigerator and then slice it small enough that the pieces will easily fit in your mouth. Place a slice inside your mouth against the area that is causing you pain and feel your toothache ease.
- Ease swelling, inflammation and insect bites: Again, just slice a piece of potato and hold it against the affected area.
- Drawing out Poison or Infection: Apply a paste of raw potato on the area that is affected. The raw potato acts like a drawing salve, pulling out the poison or infection.
- Lowering fever: Put sliced potatoes on the bottom of your children’s feet and put a sock over it to hold it into place. The potatoes slices cool the body and draw out the fever.
- Even drinking raw potato juice can soothe an upset stomach by cleansing your intestines and reducing the amount of acid in the gastrointestinal system.
The potato is one of the best all-round treatments for so many reasons. Keep potatoes on hand and it is like having your own first aid kit inside a vegetable!
