We're into the second week of the fortnightly Natural Medicine challenge, where we ask you what's your favourite home remedy - from the simplest food as medicine or a long slow exhalation, to more complicated homemade salves and teas.

This contest is also generously supported by @theinnerblocks, who are supporting concious, self reliant content on the blockchain. Not only will you get upvotes from us here at Natural Medicine, but you also chance being supported by these guys too - check out what they're up to by joining their Discord here.

@nateonsteemit has also offered to give away one of his prized homemade turkeytail tinctures if we get over 25 entries - now that's an awesome incentive! If you're not sure what that is, ask away in the comments below!


Some ideas

  • Document a process or a recipe for a new remedy you're experimenting with.
  • Investigate a remedy for what is bugging you, like an insect repellent (pun intended)
  • Talk about a childhood cure that your grandparents used to use on you - did it work?
  • Was there any merit in it or was it a folk cure with no real medicinal backing?
  • Write about a home remedy you might use on animals or pets or children


The entries thus far - please go check them out and give them some love! I'm a little bit shocked there are only five entries - BUT - that means the odds of you winning some steem or SBI is much more likely, so get your entries in by Friday 17th May for a chance to win.
