Hey Swaggernauts!

I found this super interesting and useful article on pharmacytechniciancertification.net, and I wanted to share some of it with you.  It features 100 healthy remedies that are right in your home.  They have it broken down into categories, and I would like to highlight one from each category:

Cinnamon – Studies show that half a teaspoon of cinnamon a day can lower LDL cholesterol, help with diabetes, arthritis, and even leukemia.

Healthy Remedies To Help You Lose Weight

Healthy Remedies For Beauty

Toothpaste – Toothpaste can be used as a spot treatment for acne.  ”As soon as you feel a growth coming, apply toothpaste to the effected spot. If you feel it tingling, that means its working. Do not use as an overnight treatment.”

Healthy Fruit Remedies

Apples – Apples really can keep the doctor away!  They can help the prevention of cancer, Alzheimer’s, diabetes, and cholesterol management.

Healthy Remedies For The Immune System

Salt Water – This one’s my favorite.  If you have a stuffy nose, WebMD suggests “mixing one quarter teaspoon salt, one quarter teaspoon baking soda, and eight ounces of warm water. Simply flush a few times with a bulb syringe to get results.”

Healthy Remedies In Your Spice Rack

Sea Salt – If you’re having trouble falling asleep, pour a little into a glass of drinking water.  It will help you fall asleep and stay asleep.

Healthy Cancer Remedies

Tomatoes – Finally, my excessive pizza eating will pay off.  Tomatoes contain a high level of lycopene, which helps to reduce the risk of cancer.  To get the most amounts, try a tomato paste or sauce.

Healthy Tea Remedies

Tea Bags – Place warm tea bags over your eyes to help reduce and alleviate pink eye.

Healthy Remedies For Unusual Problems

Bananas – Perfect for a hangover, bananas contain potassium, which a long night of drinking can drain out.  Bananas also help with upset stomachs and nausea.

Lesser Known Healthy Remedies

Vodka – Use vodka to “topically cure oothaches, neutralize jellyfish stings, and even combat swimmer’s ear.”
