I am kind of a nut when it comes to natural remedies and eating right. I Google too much and I am obsessed with looking at the ingredients of things.
I would rather drink raisin tea brewed for one hour (yes I did this when I had a fever) than take Tylenol. So I have found some helpful FREE apps in my travels that have aided me in home remedies, natural health news, and new research on the horizon. I have an iPhone, but most of these are for Androids too. Check out my list!
1. Natural News
Natural News is a free app that gives you up to date news and articles on the latest and greatest in health news. It has everything from "the benefits of using cilantro," to research about memory loss. It steps away from mainstream news, who only gives you short segments about natural health issues.
There are reports and videos and the information changes throughout the day. I have found this app super helpful in simply keeping up with whats going on in the alternative health world.
2. Health Tips
This is a pretty simple app. Not much to it. Each day it gives you a health tip to try and follow. Some of the stuff is pretty basic and some is more in depth.
You can then archive the ones you want to save or ditch them. It also gives you the ability to share them. I like this one because I set an alert and each day around noon it pops up with my health tip.
This app, I really love. It has an exhausted list of conditions or symptoms. You simply choose what you are feeling or dealing with, then the next screen will give you the choice to see the background, treatments and prevention of that specific ailment.
The treatment is always naturally focused. For instance for acne, one of the tips is to increase Vitamin A, zinc, fiber intake...among other things. The remedies are aimed to treat the problem not the symptom. Defiantly recommend this app for quick reference.
This app is decent. It does not get updated a ton so I check it less often. What it does have though is a national directory of health focused businesses. From things like fitness centers to where you can get a colonic.
It also has a section for healthy pets where they talk about healthy diets for animals and preventing certain illnesses in their little bodies. Again this is not my favorite but its free and nice to have to check here and there.
5. Harvard School of Public Health
This app is a bit less "alternative" and more research and international based. Here you will find articles like "South Africa Battles drug resistant TB" and things of that nature.
I like this app though because it will have videos and pieces on new research, new prevention techniques and what is going on health wise around the globe.
