Today’s fact of life#26


An apple a day keeps the doctor away. We’ve all heard the age old English proverb, but did you know that there’s actually quite a bit of truth to it? There are a large number of health benefits which can be obtained from apples. The acids found in apples help fight against gout and indigestion. These acids also help the fruit become digested faster, as well as assisting in digesting any other food you may eat at the same time. Another form of apple homeopathy is to eat a ripe sour apple just before going to bed to cure constipation. This actually lead to another old saying – To eat an apple going to bed will make the doctor beg his bread! –
