Introduction: Easy Remedies for 6 of Your Day to Day Problems!

Hi friends!

Having a good day ruined by some sickness is very annoying.
As we all suffer from common medical problems Like headache,motion sickness,cold,pains etc.Here in this instructable I am going to tell you some most effective home remedies.For some common causes.
We can find  many solutions around us and sometimes these home remedies  work much better than our expectation.

A home remedy is a treatment to cure a disease or ailment that employs certain spices, vegetables, or other common items. Home remedies may or may not have medicinal properties that treat or cure the disease or ailment in question, as they are typically passed along by laypersons (which has been facilitated in recent years by the Internet). Many are merely used as a result of tradition or habit or because they are effective in inducing the placebo effect.

Tip 6:

Step 6: Teeth Colouring - Smile Please..........

Tip 1:
When one brushes teeth regularly, in the morning and evening, the discoloring effect of certain dietary components are taken care of. Toothpastes use chemicals and mild abrasives to remove surface stains and whiten teeth. One should brush teeth soon after consuming food which potentially stains. Floss teeth, at least once, daily.

Tip 2:
An enzyme, malic acid, present in strawberries is known as a natural whitener. Strawberry pulp or halved strawberries can be rubbed onto teeth and left for a minute before washing. This helps teeth to whiten. The natural fiber of strawberries promotes the whitening process, by removing bacterial growth within the gums of teeth.

Tip 3:
Brushing teeth with a small amount of baking soda helps whiten teeth. Baking soda counters the acidity in teeth and buildup of enamel. It is recommended that teeth be brushed with baking soda at least twice a month, similar to the cleaning performed by the dentist. Toothpaste has baking soda as a component. However, baking soda is unable to whiten artificial teeth.

Tip 4:
These natural foods generate a lot of saliva which neutralizes the acidity within teeth, and retards the discoloration process. Apples, carrots, and celery are rich in vitamin C, and prevent gingivitis and gum disease.

Tip 5:
Brushing your teeth with mango leaves,they make your teeth marble white.

Tip 6:
Chewing sugarless gum generates a lot of saliva, which acts as a natural cleanser for teeth.

Tip 7:
Yogurt and cheese are useful products in maintaining the color and health of teeth. Hard cheese (eg, cheddar) is useful in removing other food particles lodged in the gums. Milk products have lactic acid bacteria, which prevent gum disease and maintain teeth. The vitamin D and calcium in milk products enhances jawbone development and fortifies teeth.

Tip 8:
Oranges, lemons, and pineapples are another source of teeth whiteners. Rubbing lemon juice on teeth helps in teeth whitening. Drinking a mix of equal proportions of lemon juice and water, once or twice a week only, helps in maintaining white teeth. The regimen should not be increased for fear of increasing the acidity within teeth. Oranges and pineapples increase saliva production, which helps in naturally cleaning out the teeth and gums.Use along with salt for best result.
