Common Cures with Common Fruits + Veggies – Leverage Ambition


The flu virus season is in full effect and we need to be as healthy as possible.

Even if we do our due diligence however, it always seems like we don’t wash our hands once and all of a sudden a day later we have a cold.

There are many preventative measures we can take like wearing a mask, drinking lots of fluids, taking our vitamins, and being hygienic.

It is no surprise that our common ailments can be prevented or even suppressed with different fruits, herbs, and vegetables. The earth gives us our healthy bounty that feeds all our needs! Amen to that!

I paired the ailments with the common fruits and veggies that help to prevent them below, have at it!


I always get a cold at least twice a year and for some reason it is always around the time the season changes. Mostly from summer to fall and fall to winter to spring is when I get the common cold. This probably has something to do with the allergens that come along with them. Either way, carrots, pineapple, ginger and garlic are all good to consume when you feel a cold coming on.


I am lucky to not suffer headaches often. It may have to do with the huge amount of water I chug daily. I find it easier to drink a ton of water when I drink from a covered cup with a straw, mainly due to the satistaction of finishing it as quickly as possible, lol! Apples, cucumbers, kale , ginger and celery are all great when you feel a headache coming on.


I am lucky to have never experienced an ulcer before however I have some friends tell me that they are as painful as child birth. Sounds really bad!Β  Cabbage, carrots, and celery can ease the pain.

High Blood Pressure

Beet, apple, celery, cucumber and ginger all together in a smoothie sounds delightful. My mother suffers from high blood pressure and stress, so this would be a great idea for her! You’re welcome, Moms!

Kidney Detox

I had an old friend at work who had kidney stones, talk about painful! Sucks to have an unhealthy organ as the rest of your body suffers for it too. Carrots, cucumbers, cilantro and watermelon are all good to help your body detox your kidneys.


Carrots, apple, spinach and beets are all known to boost serotonin levels. They say apple has the same amount of caffeine as a cup of coffee without thebacod reflux.


Carrot, spinach and celery are all known to help those with diabetes. My father has diabetes so hopefully this article will get him to put these veggies in his cart next time he goes to the supermarket.


My sister uses a nebulizer and has wicked asthma. She also has a dog with allergens in it as well and does not brush it daily. I heard you are supposed to brush your dog daily, but let me know if that’s a lie. Carrot, spinach, apple, garlic, and lemon are all recommendations to help relieve symptoms.


Carrot, celery, lemon and pineapples are supposed to lesson arthritic episodes, so head down to the farmers market today!

Kidney Stone

Orange, apple, watermelon and lemon should help prevent kidney stones. Sounds like a great smoothie there!

  2. kinge – Calm and gentleness. These qualities define me, built-in my character and for the past few years, I have been learning to be positive. There is power in kindness and humility, people mistake these for weakness. The qualities help me see life in all its beauty, enable me to rise above situations, be present. I love good food, artful music, sketching, journaling, cycling, calisthenics, and nature; connecting with nature enjoying sunsets, trees, and birds. I am a student of the mind. I read a lot on mind, body, and spirit. I write about the same to the extent of my understanding with a keen interest in personal development. My name is Kinge Kevin.
