Why Do We Yawn?
Experts say that yawning is caused by a decrease in the amount of oxygen reaching the brain. When we yawn, we open our mouth and bring more oxygen into our bodies.

Yawn becomes contagious between the ages of 1 and 2. Seeing or even hearing a person yawn often triggers yawns. And as you may be yawning right now, you know that reading about yawning can also make you yawn.

If available, use organic cherries without added sugar. You could either use fresh, frozen or canned cherries.Some people have had good results from eating regular amounts of cherries and drinking one glass of cherry juice a day. Experiment to see how this remedy can work for you.

Natural Laxatives
Flaxseeds - Ground seeds in a coffee grinder. Then in a blender add grounded seeds and mix with oranges, apples, and grapefruit. Take 3 Tbsp of flaxseeds per day with equal amounts of fruits.

Fiber - Add some raw bran to your bowl of cereal. Make sure to gradually incorporate fiber to your diet as your body needs time to adjust to higher levels of fiber.

Sauerkraut juice - It helps with constipation. But take it moderately as it has high amounts of salt.

Spinach, okra, Spanish onions and escarole - Eat spinach and escarole raw in salads. Or you can boil them and drink their juice. Roasted Spanish onions are delicious, try having them before going to bed. Jumbos are a good way to incorporate okra in your diet.

Beets - Have a couple of small fresh beets in the morning. It will help with your digestive tract functioning.

Got Hiccups?

Dealing with a Hangover
Drink plenty of water, as much as you can. Alcohol can easily dehydrate your body which is the cause for a throbbing headache.

You could also try orange juice. The fructose which is a natural sugar in the juice, may help burning off alcohol faster and restore the blood sugar level. Also, orange juice contains a good dose of potassium which is a mineral that is lost during urination. Low potassium levels can make you feel week and shaky.

Dry Hair and Split Ends
Some experts say that mayonnaise makes an excellent hair conditioner. Put a small amount of mayonnaise in the palm of your hand and work it into your hair for at least five minutes before rinsing. Repeat once a week.

You could also try the beer method to improve the looks of your hair. Pour some beer into a spraying bottle then spray it onto your hair after shampooing and towel drying it. Your hair will look healthy and shiny.
