Dr Oz: All-Natural Kitchen Cures
Looking for easy quick fixes for common ailments like dandruff and calluses? On today’s show, Doctor Oz was joined by Dr. Donnica Moore to show you All-Natural Cures that come straight from your kitchen!
Apple Cider Vinegar Spray for Dandruff
Combine ½ C of apple cider vinegar and ½ c of water into a spray bottle. Spritz onto the scalp and wrap head with a towel. Wait 15-minutes and then wash. The acid in the vinegar will break down the bacteria that dandruff thrives on. Do this 3 days in a row and then do for twice a week.
Dr Oz: Pickle Juice Muscle Cramp Remedy
Drink 2.5 oz pickle juice at the onset of a cramp. Dr. Moore stated that there have been no studies to see if this works for menstrual cramps. (Why not try it? At that time of the month, we’ll try anything. Right, ladies?!)
Dr Oz: Licorice Callus Remedy
Licorice contains components that can soften and breakdown the callus. (This is not the candy licorice but the actual licorice stick.)
To do, simply grind 4 licorice sticks and add ½ tsp of sesame oil to make a paste. Rub it onto the callus and then cover callus with a non-absorbent bandage. (Dr. Moore suggested putting on a sock to hold bandage in place.) Do this at night.
Sage Bad Breath Remedy
To prevent bad breath, Dr Oz suggested chewing on sage. Sage contains essential oils with antibacterial properties to eliminate bad breath. Most fresheners will only mask the smell. Sage will treat the cause, plus it’s beneficial for gingivitis.
Lime Juice Bug Bite Remedy
Apply equal parts limejuice to water for bug bites. Dab the mixture with a cotton ball and apply directly to the bite to neutralize the reaction and soothe the itching. The limejuice keeps the wound from becoming infected.
Dr Oz: Raspberry Tea Canker Sore Remedy
Raspberry tea contains flavonoids to reduce inflammation and prevent damage. Raspberry tea is full of an acid that helps to relieve pain and promote healing.
