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. (

      And pretty proud pal! However, you must understand that insults wont help you win the the presidency at all. I personally dont support people whose only claim on presidential race is just pure tribalism. I come from central region, but I certainly dont approve some  funny pronouncements and actions by guys from there. They have only helped to stir up anti-Kikuyu sentiments. I dont even think brother Hon. Uhuru should be the G7 presidential torch bearer. His short list of achievements hardly qualify him. He has only helped to stir tribal emotions in our guys and thus, became a tribal candidate. His so called numbers is nothing other than tribal. Actually since he was fixed by merchants of deceit, he has retreated to “our big tribe” syndrome and entirely forgotten that other things matter most too. I guess thats why he has been having abit of problem in synchronizing with other guys in G7. He has even shown in words and deeds that he has been overwhelmed by propaganda from merchants of deceit. He cant even believe that his rating in fake opinion polls is a deliberate set up by his opponents. Merchants of deceit clearly know that he cant withstand their tribal propaganda. That his candidancy is merely based on tribal numbers and his father’s famous name is not in doubt. Infact, in terms of performance and brilliant ideas, he pales behind brothers Hon. VP Kalonzo and Hon. William Ruto. Brother Kalonzo has come up with brilliant ideas like 24 hour economy, Shs. 2,000/= payment to our old folks and now televised debate for all presidential candidates. Brother Ruto’s performance in both ministries of agriculture and higher education could easily help him bid for Mcmillan’s most ablest minister. Uhuru like his brother Raila, hardly have anything that can be classified as beneficial to the country. Apart from numberous kinsmen behind them, they truly dont even deserve to be presidential candidates. Brother Raila represents the worst of all. He has only resorted to cooking up things and quickly laying claim on them as his achievements! Even the other day, my luo friend was claiming that Lamu port project was one of his achievements as PM! He even revealed that Raila has instructed his folks not to listen to any stuff thats not pro-Raila!
