Here we go with another round of multiple health tips, instead of a post focusing on just one particular topic. Hope you find something you can use!
# 1 -Here’s a simple-to-use tip I found on Pinterest from faceliftaunatural.com and Tonda Thomas….
Acupressure/Acupuncture Point “Heavenly Appearance” (SI17) – This acupuncture point benefits the ears and throat, reduces swelling, relaxes the face lower muscles and helps flushing out toxins.How to work this point? Turn your head in the opposite direction to find the point. Then, the most convenient way is to use the pad of the middle finger. Press inwards, in the direction of the inside of your mouth. Breathe slowly and deeply for 1 to 2 minutes.
# 2 – From CureJoy.com…..
Baking Soda and Lemon Juice FOR Cancer:
Recent studies have shown that consuming citrus fruits, specifically lemons, has prevented, and in some cases helped cure, cancer. And by adding baking soda you will normalize the pH of the body which does not allow the cancer to continue to spread. Chemotherapy has horrible side effects, the worst being that it destroys healthy cells. A combination of baking soda and lemon, on the other hand, only kills the cancer cells.
Patients should drink two teaspoons of lemon juice with half a teaspoon of baking soda. Consume the drink before breakfast on an empty stomach for better effect, and make sure to use organic lemons. They are 100 times more effective than a lemon grown with chemical fertilizers and sprayed with chemicals. Lemon has already been proven to have strong anti–carcinogenic properties. In addition to this, there are many other useful properties (read this SHH post), including having a strong effect on cysts and tumors.

# 3 – Here’s a video about using white vinegar and alcohol to help remove excess earwax when your ear canal is clogged up…..
# 4 – A simple treatment from www.realfarmacy.com to try for migraines that includes two top self-help health aids, lemon and crystal salt….
Migraines are extremely common and can stem from a variety of causes. They cause pain as real as the pain of injuries, as a really bad migraine can pretty much cripple you and take you down for the rest of your day.
Hence, headache sufferers seek treatment on a near-daily basis. Fortunately, there are several home-remedy treatments that can help alleviate migraine pain, but it seems that the best thing to use in this case is salt. Read on to discover the way salt can relieve a migraine in seconds.
Make sure to use high quality salt such as Himalayan crystal salt, as it is the most complete salt in the world. Himalayan salt contains 84 minerals, electrolytes and elements – a fascinating number considering that there are only 118 elements known to science.
Apart from reducing the severity of migraine headaches, this salt also increases energy levels, balances serotonin levels in the bloodstream, strengthens the immune system, restores the body’s alkaline and electrolyte balance and provides a number of other health benefits.
The salt treatment in case of migraines is quite simple and easy. Take a glass of lemon juice with a high concentration of Himalayan crystal salt and drink it. In most people, the juice from half a lemon and one teaspoon of salt provides the desired results. It works like magic! Give it a try!
# 5 – Another tip from RealFarmacy.com…..this one has to do with re-purposing those silica gel packets found in shoe boxes….
No more foggy car windows
I absolutely adore this one, since foggy car windows cause me a lot of problems, especially in damp weather season. This goes to all you drivers out there; it’s a true lifesaver in the winter. Instead of waiting for your windows to defog, which in older car models can take forever, put a bunch of these silica gel bags under your windshield from the inside immediately. You’ll see that tomorrow your windows won’t be foggy. It’s the fastest way to stop your windows from fogging up and you’ll save yourself the 10 extra minutes needed to clean them up.

# 6 – The rinds, peels, stems, leaves and seeds of many fruits and vegetables can be safely consumed and often contribute valuable nutrition and phytochemicals to your diet. Here are some examples from a post by Dr. Mercola:
- Swiss chard stems are rich in the amino acid glutamine, which is beneficial for your immune system.
- Celery tops contain five times more magnesium and calcium than the stalks.
- Broccoli leaves provide about 90 percent of your daily vitamin A requirement, compared to 3 percent in the florets.
- Outer layers of onion skins (including the papery skin) are thought to be the most nutritious, including concentrating the highest amounts of flavonoids. Try simmering onion skins in soups and stock, then removing before serving.
Watermelon rinds and seeds are another example. Watermelon rind contains more of the amino acid citrulline than the pink flesh. Citrulline is converted to arginine in your kidneys, and this amino acid is important for heart health and maintaining your immune system.Black watermelon seeds are also edible and actually quite healthy. They contain iron, zinc, protein and fiber.
Passion fruit peel provides another example. It contains a novel mixture of bioflavonoids that have been found to reduce wheeze and cough and improve shortness of breath in people with asthma.

# 7 – Several studies have come out recently describing how Manuka honey can help cure gingivitis and periodontal disease. Due to its superior antimicrobial properties, researchers from the School of Dentistry, University of Otago (Dunedin, New Zealand) discovered that chewing or sucking on a Manuka honey product not only caused a 35% decrease in plaque, it led to a 35% reduction in bleeding sites in people suffering from gingivitis!

# 8 – It’s time to start using more thyme :-)……
Thyme is a native to the Mediterranean, and was originally given the name “thyme” in Greece, they still use it in their cooking mixed with olive oil. Oil from the common herb thyme was discovered to kill up to 97% of human lung cancer cells. Recent research has shown that if you mix thyme and olive oil it will enhance the availability of hydroxytyrosol, olive oil’s most potent anti-cancer compound. Could this be the reason why Greeks have about half the rate of cancer compared to the rest of USA and the Europe?

# 9 – Pretty amazing study from an EasyHealthOptions.com post……
Researchers chose 55 patients who had been diagnosed with metabolic syndrome, and using Cardiac Computed Tomography Angiography (CCTA), they measured their total coronary plaque volume as well as dense calcium, non-calcified plaque and low-attenuation plaque.
After that initial evaluation, the patients were given either a placebo or a 2,400 mg dose of aged garlic extract every day for one year. At the end of the year, follow up screening revealed that those who had taken the aged garlic extract had slowed total plaque accumulation by 80 percent! Double wow!

# 10 & 11 – Here’s two ways from The Alternative Daily to give your immune system a boost. I’ve heard of the cold shower routine before, but not the drumming one. Cool!
Take a cold shower
No one wants to take a cold shower, but it may help your immune system to become a powerful disease-fighting machine. According to research, after a cold shower the body increases its metabolic rate while trying to warm up, which gives your immune system an extra boost. In one German study, participants who took cold showers caught fewer winter colds than their warm-shower counterparts.
Personal Note: Of course I recommend having a structured water unit for that shower! 🙂
It may sound unbelievable, but researchers from the Loma Linda University School of Medicine in California tested 111 people to determine if banging on a drum could benefit the immune system. They found when study participants used a drum, their immune systems showed instant improvement. Those who drummed in a group had the biggest immune system boost. So start that drum circle with your friends. It’s healthy!
# 12 – More good news about green tea from Easy Health Options!
When the Bauru School of Dentistry in Sau Paulo did an experiment in which they immersed teeth in cola soft drinks with and without green tea added, they found that supplementing the soft drink with green tea reduced enamel erosion by up to 40 percent.
Green tea is so good for your mouth that they’re using it to enhance healing after dental surgery.
It’s so simple to make. Water and tea leaves and a little bit of heat is all you need. Of course, sweetened green tea would defeat the purpose, so if you want bottled green tea, look for unprocessed and unfiltered versions.
You can now get mouthwashes with green tea in them, too, and they’ve been proven to reduce plaque and gingivitis as well.
