Maybe it's because I grew up in Oklahoma that I had a fascination with herbs, spices and everything healing since I was a child. Living on a farm twenty miles from the county seat of Enid my sisters and I explored every leaf, rock, feather and animal that inhabited and surrounded our home. We grew up knowing that Indians, midwives and certain women used herbs in their healing rituals.

Upset stomach:  From seasickness to morning sickness, you can get rid of nausea naturally by chewing on 3 or 4 pieces of candied ginger.

Headache:  A teaspoon of turmeric might ease pain without pills. (Look for tumeric's active ingredient, curcumin, in supplement form.) Other research suggests that butterbur extract can help with migraines.

Colds: Add rosemary or oregano to your chicken soup–the herbs have antiviral and antimicrobial properties to help fight infections. Sip some ginger tea for dessert to reduce mucus production.

Bloating:  Try dandelion extract. This natural diuretic might help you get your flat belly back.

Joint pain:  Again, reach for curcumin and ginger. Both have potent anti-inflammatory effects to help soothe aches and get you back into the swing of things.
