1. Potato Remedy for Fever : Put Potato slices in your Socks and wear them to Bed. Get up to find the Fever gone! Dr. Oz said there is no evidence this Remedy works.

2. Onion Remedy for Flu : Slice up a Lemon and an Onion and cook in Water till both are tender. Add a splash of Honey and drink. Dr. Oz says it won’t cure the Flu but will relieve some Flu-like symptoms, just like Chicken Soup.

3. Q-Tip Cayenne Pepper Remedy for Uvula : Toni sometimes uses a Q-Tip dipped in Cayenne Pepper to shrink her Uvula. Dr. Oz says it is much safer to add some Cayenne Pepper to a glass of Water and Gargle with it. The Uvula is very sensitive so we must be very careful.
