How about some more easy cures for things that ail us:

    • ¬†apple cider vinegar mixed with water (can add honey or maple syrup to make a tastier drink) instantly abets acid reflux, and can replace drugs like Nexium (linked with increased risk of dementia);

  • licorice (the real kind, not just the flavoring) can unplug your constipation without an unwelcome and dramatic blowout;
  • best fix for a thumb splitting from dryness? Bag Balm, usually sold at feed stores to heal cow and goat udders. Looks like snot, but works like a charm.
