Dr Oz: Strawberry Baking Soda Teeth Whitener
Patricia, an audience member, joined Dr Oz on stage to discuss Natural Remedies. The issue she had was that she loved coffee and tea and drank both on a regular basis, but it caused stains on her teeth. Dr Oz asked Patricia to flash him a smile so he could check out her teeth. He said they weren’t that bad, but could use a little whitening.
Terri Trespicio, Healthy Living Expert, suggested to combine baking soda and fresh strawberries to make a whitening tooth paste.
The strawberries contain an acid that will help whiten your teeth. Brush your teeth with the mix, let it sit for a few minutes and then wash it out. Patricia tried it and stated it was okay. Caveat: Do not do this every day, once a month should suffice. Dr Oz has spoken about teeth whitening remedies in the past, and you can read more about them at the following two links: Strawberry Teeth Whitener and Lemon Baking Soda Teeth Whitener.
Dr Oz: Bloating Fennel Seed Remedy
An audience member came to the stage and told Dr Oz and Terri that she had terrible gas and bloating, especially after eating. She also had bad bloating one a month.
Terri suggested taking a spoonful of fennel seeds. Chew them up and swallow. Fennel seeds will help to get rid of the trapped gas inside your stomach.
Dr Oz: Body Odor Apple Cider Vinegar Remedy
Brie, an audience member, told Doctor Oz and Terri that she had bad body odor. (Now, that’s brave to come on stage and admit that.) She’s tried different deodorants but they didn’t work.
Terri suggested apple cider vinegar. Splash it under your armpits to lower the Ph of your skin. Dr Oz reassured that you won’t walk around smelling like a salad all day. The vinegar will be absorbed and will take the odor with it. It’s best to do this right after your shower.
Dr Oz: Fenugreek Dandruff Remedy
Cynthia, an audience member, came to the stage and admitted that she had a dry, itchy scalp. She’s tried dandruff shampoos but none seem to work.
Terri suggested 2 Tbsp of fenugreek seed. Mush it up to make a paste. Take the paste and massage into the scalp. Let it sit for an hour and then wash out with dandruff shampoo. Once you’re ready to rinse, use a little bit of lime juice.
Dr Oz: Lemon Balm Cold Sore Remedy
Nancy, an audience member, came to the stage and told Dr Oz that she always got cold sores. Some factors that cause cold sores include sun, stress and sickness.
Terri suggested lemon balm, which is an herb. Find lemon balm base ointments and creams. Just as you get that tingling feeling, alerting you that a cold sore is coming, rub on the ointment. You can also use lemon balm tea. Make the tea and then use a cotton ball to dab it on to the cold sore. You can also drink the tea to help reduce stress.
