  • Ginger: recommended dose 1 teaspoon of dried ginger or 2 teaspoons of chopped ginger added to meals daily.

    Garlic: to cure an ear infection place two drops of warm garlic oil into your aching ear twice daily for five days. To make garlic oil gently simmer three cloves of crushed garlic in a half a cup of extra virgin olive oil for two minutes, strain, then refrigerate for up to two weeks.

    Cloves: dab a little clove oil sprinkled on a cotton swab on the aching tooth.

    Peppermint: soak in a warm tub scented with 10 drops of peppermint oil three times a week.

    Grapes: an Ohio University research study shows that 1 cup of grapes eaten daily can bring relief from backache. That’s because grapes contain nutrients that increase blood circulation to the lower back, which in turn alleviates pain.

    Pineapple: the bromelain in pineapple is known to ease bloated tummy and heaviness. It also improves circulation, stopping cramps and inhibiting inflammation. It may help rid the body of inflammatory compounds that contribute to arthritis.

    Tomato juice: sip 10 ounces of potassium-rich tomato juice daily to speed up your recovery, reduce risk of painful cramp flare-ups in as little as 10 days.

    Cherries: anthocyanins, the compounds that give cherries their brilliant red colour, are anti-inflammatories 10 times stronger than ibuprofen and aspirin.

    Beauty and Fitness

  • Health is wealth. By being physically fit, it can make a person look lean both inside and out. 

    There is a lot a person can do such jogging or walking  in the morning, playing basketball or any other sport with friends but if a person wants to have muscles and look lean, the best thing to do will be to sign up and workout in a gym. 

    Just like taking any medicine, one should first consult the doctor before undergoing any form of exercise.

    Physical exercise is beneficial because it helps maintain and improve ones health from a variety of diseases and premature death.  It also makes a person feel happier and increases ones self esteem preventing one from falling into depression or anxiety. It has also shown to make a person with an active lifestyle live longer than a person who doesn’t.

    The best exercise plan should have cardiovascular and weight training exercises. This helps burn calories and increase the muscle to fat ratio that will increase ones metabolism and make one either gain or lose weight. 

    A person who has never worked out before should do it gradually. Doing it too much for the first time can make one pull a muscle or have an injury making it worse. Endurance will never be built in a day and doing it repeatedly will surely be good to the person.

    Focusing on certain portion in the body can help make it improve. A good example is going to the gym and doing a workout more often in a specific area such as the abs can give one a chest pack. 

    But beauty is not only about having muscles which is what people can see. It is also about enhancing the beauty within. 

    Here are some things one can do everyday to stay beautiful and healthy; 

    · Reading books and other reading material more often keeps the mind sharp just like working out keeps the body in shape.

    · Work no matter what kind it is produces stress. One can reduce this by taking the time out to do something special like lying in a hot tub, shopping or watching a movie. Studies have shown it is reliever and helps one from looking haggardly.

    · Pollution is something people cannot control given the size of the problem. When one goes out, it is best to put some form of protection such as beauty products that contain antioxidants that protect the skin from damage. There are also other beauty products available and choosing the right one with the help of a dermatologist can help the person.

    · Another way to stay healthy is to give up some vices. Most people smoke and drink. Smoking has been proven to cause lung cancer and other diseases as well complications for women giving birth. Excessive drinking has also shown to do the same. 

    · For people who don’t smoke, it is best to stay away from people who do since studies have shown that nonsmokers are also at risk of developing cancer due to secondary smoke inhalation.

    · Lastly, it is best to always start the day with a positive outlook. Just as studies have shown that exercise makes a person feel happier, smiling produces the same effect. A smile can do a lot and it is contagious in a positive sense. It brightens the day of not only one but others as well.
