Useful stuff (not usually posted here)


Natural Painkillers
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.
