Natural remedies

We all know that herbal remedies can be expensive, and in times of economical difficulty, what are the alternatives?

Recent research suggests that Britain's hedgerow plants are bursting with vitamins and antioxidants and can potentially be used to treat conditions such as headaches and high blood pressure.

We investigate which of the UK's wild plants have been hailed as the new 'wonder drugs' and how they can help ease common ailments.

Rosehips      High in Vitamin C and iron, rosehips are commonly brewed into tea and can help ease discomfort caused during menstruation.  They can also help keep headaches, bladder infections and arthritis at bay.

  Lemon grass         Lemon grass is most commonly used in teas, soups and curries and can offer relief from mild stomach and gut problems, as well as helping to lower cholesterol.

Nettles  Although they are high in nutrients, nettles are necessarily something you'd want to eat.  Sometimes made into soup, this plant has been used since ancient Greek times to treat high cholesterol and arthritis.
