Dr. Oz Cabbage Juice to Cure Ulcers
Method: Take raw cabbage and blend in a juice extractor to remove the pulp. Drink the juice while fresh. You can sweeten the taste by adding carrot juice.

Dr. Oz Coffee Grinds Scrub for Cellulite Recipe
Dr. Oz May 24th Home Remedy;
Dr. Oz May 24th Home Remedy: Combine ½ cup coffee grinds with ¼ cup brown sugar. Place olive oil over areas of cellulite and then rub the rub mix into skin in a circular motion. Scrub for 5 minutes to exfoliate.
Caffeine can enhance fat metabolism, especially right beneath the skin. It’s easily absorbed when applied directly on the skin. It’s also a diuretic, so it gets some of the fluid out of the fat beneath your skin so that cellulite is less visible. Olive oil is a moisturizer and an emollient, which softens the skin. The brown sugar works as an exfoliant. Although this is not permanent cellulite fix, it’s an effective temporary solution.
Dr. Oz Aspirin and Lemon Juice for Flawless Skin Recipe
Dr. Oz May 24th Home Remedy;
Take 6-12 non-coated aspirin and crush them up into a powder. Combine with fresh, real lemon juice. Let it dissolve into more of a paste for about 5-10 minutes. Lightly apply to a breakout or blemish. Remove with a cotton ball dipped in a solution of baking soda and water.
Dr Oz says it works as a true beauty remedy: True beauty!
Aspirin contains salicylic acid, a beta-hydroxy acid which acts as a chemical peel to reduce acne and lesions. Lemon juice contains vitamin C, with acts as an antioxidant to nourish your skin if you’ve had some sun exposure. It also acts as an exfoliant because it’s acidic, and baking soda neutralizes that acid.
Dr. Oz Earwax for Pimples
Method: Use a Q-tip to get ear wax from your ear, apply directly to pimples.
Verdict: It does not work. Earwax can trap dirt and debris which can clog your pores. It’s not sanitary. Also, you should never put a Q-tip in your ear; it’s too small and can traumatize the ear canal. Anything smaller than your pinky finger should not go into your ear.
Dr. Oz Milk and Cabbage Gel for Back Pain
Method: Chop up 5-6 large leaves of cabbage into halves or quarters. Add them to 2 cups of milk. Pour the mixture into a saucepan and heat for around 20-35 minutes until it boils and starts to look and feel sticky. Spread the mixture onto your back and leave on for around 20 minutes.
Verdict: It does not work! Although the heat may help to loosen up the muscles and bring relief, there is no science behind milk or cabbage being useful for back pain.
Dr. Oz Curry Rice Drink for an Upset Stomach
Method: Take boiled rice, add around 10 crushed curry leaves, 1 tsp cumin seeds and then fry together. Then add 1 glass of water and bring to a boil. Have the drink on an empty stomach.
Verdict: It works! Rice usually helps an upset stomach. Additionally, there is also some evidence that curry leaves contain a protein that slows down digestion, and could be helpful to treat diarrhea.
Dr. Oz Onion Wrap for Fever Aches & Pains
Method: Peel and slice an onion. Then cut the tops of panty hose and place the slices inside. Wrap around you ankle like a bracelet. Put a sock on over the onion. Wear overnight to reduce your fever.

Method: Swallow a few teaspoons of apple cider vinegar rather than popping antacids to soothe heartburn.
Verdict: It does not work! Apple cider vinegar works for a lot things (like killing germs, weight loss and hair health) but unfortunately, there’s no evidence that supports it can help heartburn. And if it tastes bad, skip it altogether.
Dr. Oz A Warm Drink for PMS Symptoms
Method: This homemade warm, spicy drink contains oregano, rosemary, anise seeds and cloves. Drink before bed to ease the bloating, cramps and back pain that accompany your monthly period.
Verdict: Dr. Oz delivers his first ‘maybe!’ All the ingredients in this warm drink reduce bloating and gastrointestinal cramps, but there’s no research that links those ingredients to PMS symptoms. Here is the recipe for this drink – try it at home and let us know if it works for you!

Dr. Oz Turmeric Powder for Cuts and Scrapes
Method: Take turmeric powder and cover the area that is bleeding. For a deep cut or gash, cover with turmeric and apply pressure to stop bleeding and prevent infection.
Verdict: It works! Turmeric contains a raw material called curcumin, which is an antioxidant and an anti-inflammatory. Curcumin prevents some extra chemicals from being released from injured cells, reducing damage.
Dr. Oz White Rum with Lemon Juice and Water as a Fever Reducer
Method: Mix together rum, lemon juice and water and then use a wash rag to apply to your arms, back and forehead.
Verdict: It Does Not Work! Alcohol works to cool the skin so quickly that you begin to shiver, which works to raise your core body temperature. A 5-10 minute sponge bath with lukewarm water is far more effective. This treatment prevents a sharp decline in temperature by bringing it down gradually.
Dr. Oz Water and Baking Soda for Acid Reflux
Method: Mix together and drink 3 times a day, 5 days a week for 3 weeks.
Verdict: It Works! When you have acid reflux, acid is burning your stomach causing indigestion and discomfort. Chemically, the bicarbonate ion present in the baking soda will react to neutralize this acid, effectively treating acid reflux.
Dr. Oz Glue for Removing Splinters
Method: Put glue over the splinter, let it dry, and peel it off to remove splinter.

Dr. Oz Mayonnaise for a Burn
Method: Apply mayonnaise to a burn immediately after it occurs and leave on for 10 minutes.
Verdict: It Does Not Work! Applying mayonnaise or other types of food can actually breed bacteria and complicate the healing process. After a burn occurs, the most important thing is to cool it down. Direct ice can hurt the skin, but cold running water will work. Aloe is proven to help, and you should cover with sterile gauze to protect the wound.
Dr. Oz Hydrogen Peroxide for Ear Infections
Method: Pour hydrogen peroxide directly into the ear.
Verdict: It Works! Ear Infections are caused by bacteria in the wax that builds up inside your ear. The hydrogen peroxide causes a chemical reaction with the bacteria which results in visible bubbling. The hydrogen peroxide dissolves this bacteria and wax, making it an effective home remedy.
