HAVE FEVER

EAT YOGURT

Eat lots of yogurt before pollen season. Also-eat honey from your area (local region) daily.

�

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 a tranquilizer and sedative.

�

ASTHMA

EAT ONIONS

Eating onions helps ease constriction of bronchial tubes.

ARTHRITIS

EAT FISH, TOO

Salmon, tuna, mackerel and sardines actually prevent arthritis. (fish has omega oils, good for our immune system)

UPSET STOMACH

BANANAS - GINGER

Bananas will settle an upset stomach. Ginger will cure morning sickness and nausea.
