I’ve just returned from a 31-day trip to Asia (South Korea and Taiwan) and thought I’d share some health tips I found in an article, Forty 5-Minute Health Fixes, in the Asian edition of Reader’s Digest (Nov 2011 issue) and thought were interesting and worth giving a shot.

  1. Take short 10min cooler showers to avoid stripping moisture and natural protective oils from the skin.
  2. Stay up all night to lift depression.
  3. Brush your teeth with sodium bicarbonate, a.k.a. baking soda, once a week to remove stains and whiten your teeth. (This is what I’m currently working on.)
  4. Do breathing exercises if you wake feeling low.
  5. When feeling nervous, tighten and release your abdominal muscles. Repeat several times.
  6. Eat a whole raw onion at the first hint of a cold to stop infections.
  7. Use a couple of drops of olive oil to smooth your skin.

As I mentioned in my previous post, I recently made a visit to South Korea and Taiwan. I had a great time exploring the country, so I thought I’d share some footage with you guys… Hope you like it!
