I’m developing a platform for home remedies and I’d love some help making it the best tool possible

Hey everyone, thanks for dropping in on the discussion. I’m Emile, and I’m majoring in computer science at USC. My friend and I are developing a site where home remedies can be collected, organized, and reviewed by users.

Our primary goal is to make the process of searching for home remedies more efficient and safer for our users. The internet is replete with great home remedies and potentially dangerous remedies. We plan on implementing a rating system where both everyday users and health specialists can rate and discuss the efficacy and safety of submitted home remedies.

While we encourage every user to seek medical care first, not everyone consults a doctor for every minor ailment they experience. So we provide them with a safer platform than what they might find elsewhere on the internet.

We’ve been working day-in day-out to help this project come to fruition and we would like your help.

So far, we’ve been collecting remedies from health specialists, who can promote their practice by posting on our site. Starting now, we want to open the floor to non-specialists who can contribute remedies. We are primarily looking for remedies addressing

- headaches
- acne
- sunburn
- rashes and itching from spring allergies
- nasal congestion from spring allergies

We are also open to any other remedies you may have, but our main priority is to collect remedies dealing with the above five ailments.

In the end, we hope this site can act as a centralized hub that organizes the wide array of home remedies dispersed across the internet and subjects those remedies to critical review for user safety.

I would love to hear what you have to say about the project and it’s potential impact. Would you use it for a nasty headache? Would you submit a remedy or review that has worked for you?

At the moment, our primary task is collecting remedies, so if you have any remedies you’d like to contribute please fill out this form

Your help would go a long way in moving this idea forward.

Thanks everyone, have a great day.
