Losing 35kg over a few months and not regaining it can be done through drinking apple cider vinegar daily. Dr. Janet McBarron became a weight loss specialist after successfully losing weight with apple cider vinegar after a decade of battling serious weight problems.

As a doctor, she knew the dangers of obesity, including high blood pressure, diabetes, stroke and heart attack.

Her victory is described in “The healing powers of vinegar” by health writer Cal Orey.

The strategy is easy – simply drink a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar in a glass of warm water on an empty stomach every morning and, if you can handle it, in the evening.

Beetroot is “in” as a vegetable for juicing. This is because the juice is particularly rich in natural nitrates, which help to widen arteries, thereby lowering blood pressure.

Daily intake of fresh beet juice increases oxygen availability by up to 14% in muscle cells. This translates into improved stamina, not only for athletes, but for anyone who tires quickly when walking, researchers say.

Beets contain various phytonutrients called betalains (betanin and vulgaxanthin), seen in the purplish-red hue of the vegetable. These are antioxidants and anti-inflammatories, provide detoxification and possibly help reduce tumours.

Turmeric: A spice for Health

Food, herbs and spices are increasingly analysed for hidden medicinal and nutritional benefits. This is an important development as such “medication” can be used cheaply, as part of a daily diet, without the inconvenience and expense of a doctor's appointment.

One such spice is the well-known turmeric or arad, a colourant to make yellow rice. It’s somewhat strong, bitter taste blends wonderfully with curries, but it’s not palatable in raw form, particularly if you need larger amounts for pain relief. There’s an easy alternate – simply buy empty capsules, fill them with turmeric powder and “make” your own supplements. It can be used very effectively for short-term relief from severe chronic or acute painful inflammatory conditions such as arthritis, without nasty side effects.
