Did you ever hear the old wive’s tale of the farmer who cured his ear infection with pig urine? Sometimes it’s the strangest remedies that can actually help heal us. All of the unique cures to common ailments listed here are 100% backed by scientific research, unlike the farmer story.
Here are some common ailments that 70% or more of the population experiences at one time or another and remedies that may not have crossed your mind.
For people suffering from depression, everyday tasks that most of us take for granted can be a struggle. Typical anti-depressants often come with a myriad of side effects and many report that they aren’t 100% effective at treating their depression. According to this website, frequently drinking ice cold water causes a chemical reaction in our brains that makes us happier. Interestingly enough, depression is also side effect of being dehydrated. The next time you have the blues, an ice cold bottle of water may be just the thing to turn your frown upside down.
If you have ever suffered from athlete’s foot, then you know that the unbearable itch can dominate thought in your head until you find a way to relieve it. Some anti-fungal creams can be expensive and many report that they do not work on advanced cases of athlete’s foot. You may be surprised to find that the same anti-fungal cream women use for yeast infections is the most potent remedy for athlete’s foot there is. This method of treating athlete’s foot is actually well-documented, but strangely enough, not so well-known.
On a similar note, some learning and behavioral issues, such as ADHD and Autism have improved dramatically after using Candida yeast support products. Many doctors around the world have written extensively about candida yeast problems being the culprit in many cases of autism. Jenny McCarthy actually spoke frequently about candida yeast support dramatically improving the autism in her son.
Everyone suffers from extreme stress at some point in their life (and if you never have, we want to know your secret!). Stress can come from many different sources, including work, family or relationships, and it is much easier to become over stressed than it is to distress.

The best part about regular meditation is that you don’t need to be a full on Buddha in order to restress. While there are many forms of meditation, many practitioners report that by simply sitting, clearing their minds and focusing on taking deep breaths for about 15 minutes reduced their stress levels significantly.
I’ll leave you with a fun fact: 80% of the world’s top CEOs practice some form of regular meditation.
