    Urinary Tract Infections:




    Downing one cup of blueberries—fresh or frozen daily can cut your risk of a urinary tract infection 60 percent, according to researchers at Rutgers University. Scientists say these blue gems are loaded with special plant compounds that wrap around problematic bacteria to prevent them from latching onto the bladder wall.

    Vertigo:




    When calcium crystals lodge in the inner ear (a problem that can occur if they flake off of the delicate surfaces they’re supposed to be attached to) they can disrupt balance, leading to head spins. To stop dizzy spells and dislodge symptom-causing crystals in three weeks, researchers at Chicago’s Northwestern University suggest this couch exercise: Sit with your head tilted up as if you’re looking at someone standing in front of you. With your neck at that fixed angle, lay down on your left side for 30 seconds, sit up briefly, then lay down on your right for 30 seconds. Continue for 10 minutes, twice daily, until vertigo disappears.

    Wounds:




    Coating cuts, scrapes and burns with aloe vera gel twice daily speeds healing 33 percent, suggest studies at Dallas’ University of Texas. Aloe’s active ingredient--glucomannan--is a powerful anti-inflammatory that kick-starts the growth of healthy new cells and supportive collagen, explains Dr. Balch.

    Xerosis (Super-Dry Skin):




    Nosh on some walnuts. Yale researchers say 80 percent of women can heal super-dry skin in three weeks just by eating one ounce daily. Why? "Walnuts are packed with omega-3 fatty acids, which revitalize the skin’s protective lipid layer, trapping in moisture and keeping skin soft, smooth and supple," explains Nicholas Perricone, M.D., a dermatologist at Michigan State University.

    Yeast Infections:




    Enjoy one cup of cruciferous vegetables (like broccoli or cabbage) daily, and you could speed your recovery from a frustrating yeast infection--and prevent future ones from occurring. Studies at Korea’s Kyungpook National University show that the active ingredient in cruciferous veggies—a compound called indole-3-carbinole (I3C)—naturally damages the cell wall of sickness-causing yeast, stopping their growth and spread.

    Zzzz...:




    Too pooped to party? Pop some pickled peppers! Capsaicin (the plant compound that gives these picks their zing) stimulates a rush of endorphins in the brain, erasing fatigue--and revving up moods--in as little as two minutes, say UCLA researchers. The study-proven dose: Just one slice of a hot pickled pepper (try jalapenos or banana pepper rings) can fend off fatigue.
