Smearing red mush all over your teeth to whiten them certainly seems counterintuitive. But strawberries are full of vitamin C, which gets rid of plaque, and astringent, which helps remove stains. Both will leave your smile brighter and your teeth healthier—no gummy strips needed. Simply mash the strawberries (adding baking soda is optional) and use a toothbrush to spread over your soon-to-be pearly whites. Leave on for five minutes once a week.


Taking a garlic capsule once a day can also lower your blood pressure and help keep it under control. You can also eat a little bit of garlic powder in your food to help keep your blood pressure under control. My dad has high blood pressure and he takes a garlic capsule every day and it works fine for him. He takes it with his medications. You can find garlic capsules in your local pharmacy or health food store. They can also be found in the vitamin aisle at your local grocery store.


Like slippery elm, the herb marshmallow (Althaea officinalis) contains mucilage, which is thought to coat and soothe the lining of the esophagus. It is another folk remedy that is used for heartburn. Herbalists often recommend marshmallow root tea. It is usually made by adding one tablespoon of the dried root to a cup (8 oz.) of boiling water, steeping it covered for at least 10 minutes, and then straining. Herbalists usually suggest drinking up to three cups a day.
