1) Heartburn -- Bananas
Acid indigestion could last for a few minutes and in some cases up to several hours. Symptoms usually intensify after meals, especially after consuming spicy or fried foods. Ripe bananas provide a natural antacid effect, coating the stomach from acid while reducing the formation of ulcers. The high content of potassium in bananas raise the pH of the stomach content, reducing the overall acidity and discomfort of heartburn.
2) Constipation -- Lemon Water
Constipation is no fun and can be downright debilitating and occasionally painful. The cause of your sluggish bowels may be caused by; lack of fiber in your diet, insufficient liquid intake, stress and bad bowel habits. Lemon Water helps aid in digestion and makes a powerful antidote for constipation. Water is a natural lubricant that softens stool, and the high acid-content in lemons acts as a stimulant for the digestive system.
3) Premenstrual Syndrome(PMS) -- Chamomile Tea
The female hormones estrogen and progesterone, which regulate the menstrual cycle, normally work together but when one tries to outdo the other, the battle begins. Symptoms of bloating, headaches, cramps and mood shifts are common discomforts of PMS. A simple remedy to reduce these nasty symptoms is a cup of hot, soothing chamomile tea. This unique, flavorful tea provides soothing and relaxing aroma with gentle sedative effects to treat tummy aches, muscle spasms, anxiety, headaches and insomnia.
4) Toothache -- Cloves
Toothaches hurt when you eat or drink, when you smile or frown, even when you move your head in any direction. Until you can see a dentist though, you want to stop the pain now. Cloves contain 80-90% eugenol, a powerful anesthetic used in dental surgery to relieve the pain of tooth extractions, fillings and root canals. For a temporary toothache-relief solution, place a few cloves on or near the painful tooth, moisten with saliva and bite to release their pain-reducing oil. Keep the cloves on your sore tooth, for about 30 minutes, remove them and rinse your mouth.
5) Sore Throat -- Whiskey
Booze won't cure your sore throat but it will help soothe the pain and scratchy sensation. Add honey and 1-2 spoonfuls of whiskey to warm water and gargle; you can slowly swallow the mixture to clear stuffy nose and encourage sleep.
6) Migraines -- Coffee
Noises, crowds, stress, lack of sleep, all familiar factors that could contribute to an acute, throbbing migraine headache. Besides being one of the most famous eye-opening beverages, coffee is also credited for possessing antioxidants and nutrients that can improve your health. Caffeine, an ingredient in many popular pain killers, constricts blood vessels and can effectively lessen the pounding of a migraine.
7) Bloating, Gaseous Stomach -- Pineapple
Abdominal swelling, instestinal gas, frequent belching, all symptoms resulting from gas buildup in the stomach and intestines. In tropical regions, pineapple has a long history use as a traditional remedy to relieve symptoms of indigestion. Pineapple fruit contains 'bromelain', an enzyme that helps in the digestion of proteins, rapidly relieving abdominal pain and discomforts.
8) Joint Pain -- Tart Cherries
Rheumatoid arthritis, injuries, osteoarthritis and gout are some of the conditions that can lead to painful joints. Swelling and inflammation in the joints can affect any part of the body, and have an impact on your quality of life. Researchers suggest that eating cherries, especially tart cherries, shows a remarkable improvement in pain, stiffness and physical activity. Anthocyanins found in cherries have powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties which work as effectively as anti-inflammatory drugs.
9) Sinus Problems -- Cayenne Pepper
Inflammation is the basic cause of sinus problems, generally prompted by allergies and the common cold. Pain in the forehead, achy upper teeth and stuffy nose are all symptoms of a sinus attack. A natural way to help reduce nasal congestion is cayenne pepper. The active component--capsaicin--of these hot chilies naturally clears nasal passages by loosening mucus. Take a pinch of cayenne pepper powder and snort it up each nostril. The pepper can also be diluted in water and swabbed into the nose with a cottom ear swab.
10) Sore Muscles -- Ginger
Whether from intense workouts at the gym or simply sitting in the same position for a long time, can cause muscle pain. Since there is muscle tissue in almost all parts of the body, this type of pain can be felt virtually anywhere. For centuries ginger has been used in folk remedies for both body and brain therapy. Gingerol, the main bioactive compound of ginger, has intense anti-inflammatory agents that relieve muscular discomfort and pain. Make ginger tea by placing a peeled, sliced ginger root in boiling water; let it steep for 15 minutes before drinking.
