There are a lot of quacks out there both in the real-life medical field and the internet that will tell you certain things about your health that aren’t true. Some of the things they may say are, though. Here are five health tips that actually work.

Use a Lime to Ease a Headache

Headaches are one of the most common ailments a human being can endure, and there are a lot of cures out there. A more natural way to go about easing a headache is to use lime. Just rub a slice on your forehead or wherever the pain is.

Use Honey To Relieve Hay Fever

Honey has many health benefits and one of them is reducing the affects of seasonal hay fever. Just by eating local honey you can start to see your symptoms go down or not even have those symptoms at all. This is because you’re desensitizing your body to the pollen that normally would have triggered hay fever symptoms.

Balance Hormones With Spearmint Tea

Mint tea is another delicious entry on this list that helps reduce hormonal imbalances, especially in women. The mint is said to help balance anti-androgen hormones, resulting in less facial hair and acne. Two cups a day is the recommendation to keep away the male sex hormones in women.

Boost Your Immunity With Dirt

Rolling around in the dirt was always awarded punishment as a child but perhaps it’s not so bad after all. Exposing yourself to the good bacteria prevalent in the dirt helps ward off anxiety and depression and helps boost the immune system.

Sugar To Get Rid Of Hiccups

While sugar may not always be the healthiest choice, a spoonful of sugar can alleviate a bout of hiccups. Sugar stimulates what’s known as the vagus nerve which in turn “tells” the brain to focus on the sugar instead of hiccuping.
