Other Health Issues Natural Cures


Other Health Issues and Notes…


·         To cool a hot head from the heat, put a chilled lettuce leaf under your cap.

If you are using a salt substitute to reduce your salt intake, use it sparingly.  Many salt substitutes contain sodium, just smaller amounts. If you shake it too much, you may be getting the same amount of sodium as you would get in salt.  Some salt substitutes also contain potassium chloride which can be harmful in large amounts, particularly if you have kidney problems or if you are taking medication for heart failure or high blood pressure.

To fight aging – Detoxify



Help to correct skin and liver disorders.  It has a laxative effect, and is a valuable aid to digestion and weight loss.


Beet juice

Nourishes the liver. The liver is one of the most important organs of the body, as it has hundreds of different functions.  If our liver is functioning well, most likely everything else in your body is too.



It is excellent for alleviating stomach ailments, especially when combined with comfrey. It's high in vitamin K and cancer-fighting indoles. 


Carrot juice

Is high in antioxidants, including beta-carotene and vitamins A, C, and E.  It is filled with minerals and anti-aging enzymes.  One caveat on carrot juice, since it is high in natural sugar, this juice should be diluted with water, especially if you have a blood sugar imbalance.



Is moderately high in sodium, not the bad-for-you salt shaker kind, but the good, natural kind that promotes good cell chemistry.


Melon juices

Are wonderful kidney cleansers.  The rind provides a wide range of enzymes, minerals, and chlorophyll.  Drink melon juice alone, not in combination with other fruits or vegetables.


Pineapple juice

Contains bromelain, which has an anti-inflammatory effect.  This is especially good for alleviating arthritic symptoms.


Red Grapes

The skins of red grapes reduce plaque in the walls of arteries.





Eat  chocolate and whole wheat bread




Athlete’s Foot


Soak your feet in a basin of warm water with a few crushed garlic cloves and a splash of rubbing alcohol.
