Dr Oz: Home Remedies With Coffee
Dr. Oz said there are other ways besides drinking coffee to get the benefits from the drink. He invited viewers to share their best home remedies that involved coffee.
Stop a cut from bleeding – Take the wet grounds from brewed coffee and place about a teaspoon directly on a cut. Hold it there for about two minutes to stop the bleeding. This works because the coffee constricts the blood vessels.
Get rid of a cold – Brew a fresh pot of coffee and use a towel to form a tent and sit over the pot as you inhale the steam. This works because the steam helps loosen the congestion and it leaves you feeling less foggy.
Relieve a headache – Make “Espressicles," or frozen espresso pops. The coffee will restrict the blood vessels and the cold will help relieve the headache as well.
