Coldwater fish (such as sardines, halibut, tuna, and salmon) reduce the frequency,
duration, and severity of migraine headaches. Rich in Omega-3 fatty acids, these superfoods can ease your pain when they are consumed 2 to 3 times per week.


Cinnamon may lower blood sugars. A study in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that one daily teaspoon can possibly prevent or control diabetes.


Berries alleviate joint pain. In a study, Dr. Muraleedharan Nair, professor of natural 
products and chemistry at Michigan State University, found that tart cherry extract is 10 times more effective than aspirin at relieving inflammation. Dr. Nair later discovered the same anti-pain effect in berries (such as blackberries, raspberries, blueberries, and strawberries).

Peppermint soothes an upset stomach by calming the muscles, and improving the flow of bile. In test tubes, it kills certain types of bacteria, fungus, and viruses. Scientists believe that this suggests that peppermint has antibacterial, antifungal,
and antiviral properties. Several studies also support the use of peppermint for indigestion and irritable bowel syndrome.


Garlic is great for treating athlete’s foot. In fact, a study published by the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology indicated that garlic is more effective at curing athlete’s foot than Lamisil, a popular anti-fungal ointment. Subjects who treated their infection with garlic experienced a 100 percent cure rate. For a quick remedy, soak your feet for 30 minutes in a footbath consisting of water and crushed garlic.



Pure Chocolate (not chocolate cake) is good for your heart and blood pressure, says Dr. Valentine Yanchou Njike, who researched cocoa’s effect on blood vessel function at Yale-Griffin Prevention Research Center.

This yummy healer can be loaded with calories and sugar.


Ginger strengthens the immune system. It dissolves parasites in the body, kills bacteria like salmonella, contains natural antibiotics, eases congestion, and treats cold and flu viruses.

Flaxseed decreases the risk of diabetes, cancer, heart disease, and stroke. The American Nutrition Association stated that flaxseed contains “an excellent source of two fatty acids that are essential for human health – linoleic acid, and alpha- linolenic acid.” In animal studies, alpha- linolenic acid inhibited the occurrence of tumors and the growth of tumors.


Cranberry Juice prevents tooth decay. According to research, the juice contains a chemical that blocks cavity-causing bacteria from sticking to teeth, inhibits acid production, and protects teeth from periodontal disease. However, it’s important to opt for natural juices that don’t contain high amounts of sugar and acid. c
