# 1 Folk remedies around the world to heal and nourish the body
Ask as we did and you will certainly start to get a valuable database of folk remedies. Everyone I asked had a home remedy or two; a grandmother’s remedy to cure gout (apple cider vinegar), a sister’s Ayurvedic remedy to stop diarrhea in minutes (turmeric), an old Mexican remedy for a nagging cough (garlic). Delighted to have this treasure trove of recipes to cure acute and chronic ailments, we started posting these remedies on the Earth Clinic as early as 1999. Not long after, our readers began to respond with their own family remedies. If you do not see what you are looking for in this section on home remedies, please see our extended section on ailments.
