Curing Yourself with Food
 

Healing Foods


Healing Foods. A Brief Overview More and more research studies are showing that a variety of foods have the ability to heal the body thanks to the abundance of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants that many of them contain.

Not only that but also many foods are ancient folk cures for a multitude of ailments. For example parsley is believed to be better than mouthwash as a breath freshener while licorice is beneficial for people suffering from colds, coughs and the flu.

Lemonade is said to get rid of hiccups while cucumber can be cut into slices and placed on the eyes to reduce bags under the eyes after a late night. The interior peel of the cucumber can also be used to rub over the face in order to clean the face and make it feel toned and fresh.

Lemon can be mixed with olive oil and drank on a daily basis. All that is required is one organic or unwaxed lemon mixed with one tablespoon of olive oil (preferably extra virgin olive oil) and also a glass to a glass and a half of water whether it be spring water, filtered water or even regular tap water.

This drink is an excellent detoxifier for the gallbladder and lemon and can be consumed one hour before eating, preferably first thing in the morning. This lemon/olive oil drink is particularly beneficial for individuals who suffer from gallstones or who are underweight.

Lemons are also excellent for combating cancer, projecting the circulatory system, controlling blood pressure, as well as smoothing and toning the skin. Back in history lemons help to prevent the disease of scurvy. Olive oil is helpful to health in its own right.

Olive oil helps to protect the heart and it encourages weight loss and helps to combat cancer. Olive oil, like lemons is good for the skin and it is beneficial for those who suffer from diabetes.   

Quick Reflexology Fact

Reflexology can also be used on the face and the ears as well. Because reflexology works to put the body in a state of well-being, it is beneficial to every system in the body. Reflexology has been known to relieve many common pregnancy complaints including headache, nausea, backache, stress and anxiety, sleeplessness, fatigue, constipation, swollen ankles and digestive problems such as acid reflux.

Onions and garlic are the queen and king in the vegetable kingdom respectively and it is no surprise whatsoever as both are extremely beneficial to the functioning of the human body. Onions help to decrease the risk of a person suffering a heart attack and they lower cholesterol and help to combat cancer. Not only that but onions are an antifungal agent and are very beneficial at killing bacteria. Garlic does many of the same things as onions do. Garlic lowers cholesterol levels and it controls blood pressure. Garlic is also an effective defense against cancer and it kills bacteria and fights the development of fungus in the body.

If you enjoy eating grapes then you are in luck because grapes are good for the eyes and help to get rid of kidney stones. Grapes are also cancer fighters and they protect the circulatory system and encourage the proper flow of body throughout the body.

 

The olive oil when cold pressed can act as a protective in the digestive tract and can relive dry skin too. Olive oil is a good oil choice for keeping your heart healthy because it prevents a buildup of cholesterol in your arteries. It can also heal broken or irritated skin.

While we are on olives, the Ancient Greeks used the olive leaf as a wound cleanser. It is also a diuretic and research has shown that the olive leaf can also lower your blood sugar level and your blood pressure. They also have antimicrobial properties for fighting against certain bacteria, some strains of fungi, and viruses.



Grapefruit at breakfast and is an excellent way to start the day. Grapefruit protects a person from suffering a heart attack and it reduces the threat of strokes. Grapefruit also lowers cholesterol, it combats the development of prostrate cancer in men and it is effective for those attempting to drop a few (or many pounds).
