Everyday ailments and what to do about them

Updated on January 30, 2013


Everyday ailments are types of ailments that any person could suffer from, especially when reaching a certain age. What can you do to avoid these ailments, preferably without using medication. More than often a lack of certain vitamins and minerals is the cause.

Note: it is certainly recommended to take supplements (vitamins &minerals) in addition to the products mentioned below.


Difficult weight loss

Especially from a certain age it becomes increasingly difficult to keep a stable weight and also to loose weight. This is mainly due to the lack of essential acids and vitamin A. These deficiencies can be gained back by eating carrots, salmon and flaxseed. Flaxseed is usually eaten in combination with some yoghurt and cottage cheese. Next to this, add some vitamine A supplements to your foods.

Fluid retention

From the age of around 30 years we tend to retain more fluids, which also causes weight gain(as described above). Fluid retention is caused by a poor balance of potassium, sodium and phosphorus. These are found in foods such as olives, coconut water/milk, peaches, plums, figs, almonds, beets and other types of nuts.

Headaches and migraines

Headaches and migraines are more than often the cause of a shortage of potassium and magnesium. This can be overcome by eating bananas, corn, peaches, oranges, tomatoes and drinking enough water. The older you get the more water you need and many people still underestimate the importance of this.

Stomach Problems

These include stomach cramps, bloating, gas, etc. This is due to a shortage of live bacteria. These bacteria make sure that what you eat and drink is digested properly and keeps your stomache inside healthy. Eating yogurt, cottage cheese and special drinks that contain these live bacteria ensure the increase and upkeep of these bacteria.


With amnesia we do not meancomplete amnesia of course, but the type of amnesia where you often forget something, often these are small things but it can be annoying. Drinking soy milk and eating eggs (especially the yolk) is important, and can help you remember these small things again.
