Camomile tea for eye infections: allow the tea to cool then apply to the affected eye with cotton buds or a flannel

Lemon juice is antibacterial and good with honey and warm water for coughs and sniffles. Added garlic and ginger can be good to fight colds

Peppermint steeped in boiling water to make a tea can be good for headaches and indigestion

Oats are good to calm nerves. Eat for breakfast and drink oat water several times a day. Put one teaspoon of oats in a glass of water, stir and leave to soak for 20 minutes. Stir again and strain it through muslin. Drink the liquid. Also helps with diarrhoea and cystitis

Insomnia: don't drink coffee after 2 pm as the body takes time to process caffeine before bedtime. I think coffee has something like 75 mg of caffeine per mug while tea has about 25mg so coffee is powerful stuff and best kept to a limit

Nettle tea can stimulate milk flow for lactating mothers

An organic apple a day is all round awesome for health
