I've always wondered why there were so many different species and variations of plants in our planet, looking for a reason to tie it all together.

 

While I am still on that journey, significant realizations have been made that I want to share with you.

When analyzing all the different herbs, spices and foods in our world, I realized one particular thing that went overlooked far too long in my mind. That thing is that we're all connected and part of the same planet, eat the same food, breathe the same air.

Should there be something that causes imbalance, there should also be something that causes the opposite effect.

With fire there's water, and for flowers there's bees. If you're lacking in something, it's as easy as looking for the thing in our planet that will fulfil your void.

That is to say, food is our medicine – you just have to find the right one for your need.

Since most diseases and illnesses begin in the gut, what we consume in our diets is the most important thing to look at when trying to analyze our own health.

Without further ado, here are my top 8 natural remedies and herbs that will help with many of life's common ailments.

Top 5 Natural Remedies, Herbs and Vitamins

ProbioticsProbiotics are especially great for promoting good digestion and overall gut health. They help your body digest food, fight off bacteria, and a variety of other things that are beneficial for you.

As stated earlier, most diseases and infections stem from our guts, making maintaining good gut health one of the highest priorities you should have on your lists.

Apple Cider VinegarA staple for any home, apple cider vinegar offers a variety of benefits for many different ailments. Its properties are great for fighting off a variety of bacteria and other viruses.

It's especially useful for skin ailments; rashes, fungi, etc. It has potent anti-bacterial properties that make it an efficient home remedy for a plethora of different things.

KombuchaThis age-old fermented tea contains high levels of vitamins, minerals and enzymes. Its an effective drink that's commonly used for detoxification purposes, as well as treating things like ulcers and digestive problems.

Castor OilWhile it's used in many soaps, cosmetics and massage oils, castor oil provides many medicinal benefits that do wonders for your body internally too.

Since many use castor oil for the hair and skin benefits it provides, they'll be happy to know that it's also an anti-microbial anti-inflammatory oil with potent vitamins and minerals as well.

Argan OilLast but not least, one of the most favorite natural hair and skin remedies that's used by millions worldwide for its potent replenishing properties. While predominantly known for the benefit it provides your hair, it's also a great anti-inflammatory oil as well.

While there are many other notable mentions (such as Black Seed Oil), these 5 have been most effective for me during my years doing CrossFit.

Since most of these solutions have been heard by many people, they also are unknown to many; it's important to keep in mind that there is always a solution for each and every problem we have, we just need to know where to look for the solution.

 

What have you found to be an effective natural remedy for CrossFit?
