Five Foods That Can Cure Common Ailments

May 20, 2010 – According to “Prevention” magazine, you don’t always have to hit the medicine cabinet when you’re sick. Here are five common ailments and five FOODS that can cure them…


#1). If you’re in a bad mood, eat a tuna sandwich – The fatty acids in fish are an effective way to help treat depression. And combined with the 800 milligrams of omega-3s that are in one can of tuna, it can actually pick you up if you’re having a bad day.

#2). To cure a headache, eat a potato – The 37 grams of carbs in a potato can ease a tension headache by upping your serotonin levels. But it works best if you don’t use butter or anything else with fat in it. Sounds delicious…

#3). If you have a cough, eat honey – According to a study a few years ago, honey actually works better than over-the-counter cough medicines. But it can’t just be REGULAR honey. It has to be BUCKWHEAT honey, which is darker in colour.

#4). To cure stress or anxiety, eat a banana – It’s only about 100 calories, and it boosts your blood sugar, which can relieve stress. Plus, one banana has 30% of your daily-recommended dose of vitamin B6, which helps your brain produce serotonin and mellow you out.

#5). To combat a yeast infection, eat garlic. It has essential oils that can stop the growth of fungus, which is what causes pain and itching. Recent studies also suggest that thyme, and the oils from oranges do the same thing. (
