Weekly Health Tips
4.15.19...Burn away your winter cold with a dash of horseradish! The key component here is a volatile oil called sinigrin, a natural antibiotic that's especially powerful when it comes to conquering respiratory problems. Simply add freshly grated horseradish (from the produce department) or the kind that's been preserved in vinegar (usually in the dairy section) to your dips or mashed potatoes for a natural way to clear congestion, thin mucous, fight bacteria and viruses, reduce inflammation, and stimulate the immune system. Your cold medicine has never been so hot! 4.16.19...Ounce for ounce, liver contains more nutrients than any other food. What makes liver such an awesome protein is that it's the most concentrated, naturally-occurring source of vitamin A. Plus, it's full of vitamin B, folate, and one of the most usable and digestible forms of iron and copper. So, stop whining and eat your liver already.
4.17.19... Bees make more than honey. They also make a compound called propolis, which they use in building their hives. Ages ago, it was also used to treat wounds, fight infections, and embalm Egyptian mummies. Today, this sticky substance is a yummy way to fight off a cold because it's high in antioxidants and flavonoids. These flavonoids can inhibit some viruses that cause symptoms of the common cold. 4.18.19...Do you have some licorice in your house that you want to get rid? Then blend it up and mix it with a little bit of petroleum jelly to make a paste that will smooth the calluses on your hands and leave you with softer, more beautiful skin despite all of the hours you spend doing dishes, gardening, and otherwise putting them through the works.
4.19.19...If being on a boat makes you feel queasy, you can soothe your tummy by eating a couple of olives to dry up your saliva and make you feel better almost instantly. Take a can or jar of them with you on your next seaside adventure so that you can enjoy the adventure without worrying about throwing up your lunch.
