Dr Oz: Kitchen Remedies
Are you always looking for solutions to the random health problems that pop up out of nowhere? Dr Oz shared some easy kitchen remedies on his show, including the Potato Sunburn Remedy, Beer for Split Ends, and Licorice Paste. Check out these unique solutions to your health and beauty problems. Tell me about whether they work for you.
Dr Oz Remedies: Licorice Paste Treats Calluses
From the audience, a woman told Dr Oz about the hard calluses on her feet. He suggested Licorice Paste as a remedy to heal this issue. He said it may sound weird, but it’s rich in Estrogen, which softens the callus. Just rub it on the callus; then sand it off.
Dr Oz: Olive Oil Treats Brittle Nails
A woman named Michelle said she has weak nails, and wondered whether gelatin would help treat this issue. Dr Oz basically said that was crazy; though it was once believed to be true due to the proteins in gelatin, they’re the wrong proteins your body needs to create healthier nails.
That’s why Dr Oz suggested Olive Oil to keep nails moist and healthy. Soak your nails for 15 minutes at least once a week to keep them soft.
Dr Oz: Coconut Oil Dandruff Treatment
Jess said she is embarrassed by her Dandruff, which is caused by a fungus similar to yeast. She asked if Rosemary Tea was actually useful in fighting dandruff or if it was another old wives’ tale. Dr Oz said this was another crazy theory.
He suggested Coconut Oil Dandruff Remedy, because it’s high in Lauric Acid, which moisturizes the scalp. You can put it on while you’re in the shower, letting the oil soak into your hair for a few minutes before rinsing it out. That sounds easy enough.
Dr Oz: Green Tea for Bad Breath
Dr Oz also shared some natural quick fixes for annoying body issues, including the amazing Potato Sunburn Remedy. Whether coffee, garlic, or another sharp flavor is to blame for your bad breath, there’s one remedy that will clear this up in no time. Green Tea is full of bacteria killing antioxidants.
Dr Oz: Beer Remedy for Split Ends
If your hair is never as silky as you’d like, Dr Oz said you should actually try soaking it in beer. This might sound crazy, but the proteins and B vitamins in beer can seal moisture into the hair. Just massage beer into your hair and let it sit for five minutes before rinsing.
Dr Oz: Potato Sunburn Remedy
Sunburns can be painful and unattractive, but you can treat them. First, slice a potato in half and rub it directly on the sunburn. If that doesn’t work, you can also try blending two potatoes in some water, and rubbing the resulting paste onto the skin before rinsing it off. This remedy works by repairing cells as the starch from the potatoes soothes the skin.
