Forget pills, capsules, ointments, and creams. There are actually FOODS that can heal.
Give these edible remedies a try... 
LOWER CHOLESTEROL

Pare down your cholesterol with pears.  The sweet and juicy fruit contains a compound called lignin.  Lignin works by attaching itself to the cholesterol in your body, trapping it in your intestines, and removing it, so your body won't absorb it.  Neato!

 

EASE ASTHMA SYMPTOMS

Ah, the onion.  Such a layered vegetable.  One of the surprising things about onions is their ability to soothe asthma symptoms.  The asthma relief occurs because the pungent veggie is a natural anti-inflammatory.  By reducing inflammation in the neck, esophagus and chest regions, the onion helps the asthma sufferer breathe easier.  So, if you have asthma, keep onions on hand. Just remember to keep some Tic Tacs handy as well.

 

REDUCE STROKE RISK

Are you familiar with Beta-Carotene.  If not, we recommend you get VERY well acquainted with the substance, which is found in carrots, red peppers and sweet potatoes.  That's because loading up on B-C lowers your chances of having a stroke.  In fact, eating just one carrot a day can decrease the risk of stroke by as much as 68%.

 

DECREASE BLOOD PRESSURE

Have high blood pressure? Munch on a celery stick.  These crunchy green stalks have been used as a blood pressure reducer for centuries in Asian countries.  And recent studies indicate that celery really is a blood pressure-reducing food.  So how does it work?  Well, celery relaxes the muscles of the arteries, dilates blood vessels and reduces stress hormones in the blood.  All three of these things help to lower blood pressure.

 

PREVENT AND STOP BREAST CANCER

Grapefruit is a great fruit for cancer prevention.  The tart circle of citrus contains liminoids, a food substance that has been found to prevent breast cancer.  And grapefruits also contain a food compound called naringin, which can halt the growth of breast cancer cells that are already present.  Pretty amazing, huh?  So why not add grapefruits into your regular rotation?  (We like the pink ones best!)

 

HALT HEARTBURN

Have heartburn?  Don't stay up all night suffering.  Just chow down on some complex carbs, like slow cooking oatmeal (made with light butter and Splenda, of course), or some whole grain bread.  These hearty, substantive foods soak up excess stomach acids, thus neutralizing the burning sensation.
