There’s no need to feel conflicted about the choice between natural remedies and over-the-counter prescription medications, because they often complement each other perfectly.

Modern medicine offers advanced diagnostics, lifesaving emergency treatments, and precise surgical and pharmaceutical interventions for conditions that are impossible to treat on your own. It also provides drug-free approaches to healing, such as physical therapy and psychotherapy.

Natural remedies, on the other hand, offer safe, accessible ways to be proactive about your health. You can use them for self-care when you get a cold, during bouts of insomnia, or to ease digestion, without worrying about serious side effects, overdose, or dependence. As long as you heed your doctor’s advice about how to avoid unwanted interactions between natural remedies and any medications you’re taking, an integrative approach to medicine that includes both paradigms is ideal.

Here are a few simple, naturally medicinal drink recipes to help improve your mood, ease stress, and reduce inflammation.
