Food As Medicine

Headache? Eat fish!
Eat plenty of fish - fish oil helps prevent headaches. And so does ginger, which reduces inflammation and pain.

To Prevent Stroke... Drink Tea
Prevent buildup of fatty deposits on artery walls with regular doses of tea (actually, tea suppresses my appetite and keeps the pounds from invading... Green Tea is great for our immune system).

Insomnia.. Can't Sleep? Honey!
Use honey as tranquilizer and sedative.

Hay Fever? Eat Yogurt!
Eat lots of yogurt before pollen season. Also eat honey from your area (local region) daily.

Asthma? Eat onions!
Eating onions help ease constriction of bronchial tubes (when I was young, my mother would make onion packs to place on our chest, helped the respiratory ailments and actually made us breathe better).

Upset Stomach? Banana - Ginger!
Bananas will settle an upset stomach. Ginger will cure morning sickness and nausea.

Arthritis? Eat Fish, Too!
Salmon, tuna, mackerel and sardines actually prevent arthritis. (Fish has omega oils, good for our immune system)

Bone Problem? Eat pineapples!
Bone fractures and osteoporosis can be prevented by the manganese in pineapple.

Bladder Infection? Drink Cranberry Juice!
high acid in cranberry juice controls harmful bacteria.

Premenstrual Syndrome? Eat Cornflakes!
Women can ward off the effects of PMS with cornflakes which help reduce depression anxiety and fatigue.

Memory Problems? Eat Oysters!
Oysters help improve your mental functioning by supplying much-needed zinc.

Colds? Eat Garlic!
Clear up that stuffy head with garlic. (remember, garlic lowers cholesterol, too)

Coughing? Use Red Peppers!
A substance similar to that found in the cough syrups is found in hot red pepper. Use red (cayenne) pepper with caution - it can irritate your tummy.

Breast Cancer? Eat Wheat, Bran and Cabbage
Helps to maintain estrogen at healthy levels.
