Believe it or not, eating veggies and fruit is truly good. In fact, several studies made by the Philippine Council for Agriculture, Forestry and Natural Resources point to the value of some veggies and fruits as medicine. Here's a list of some of the most useful that can easily grow in most gardens.

Garlic. Has been proven to be good for cough, asthma, hoarseness, neuralgia and earache. It is also considered very good for high-blood pressure. In fact, eating half a clove or garlic a day is said to be good for inducing the body's ability to dissolve blood clots to help prevent heart attacks and strokes.

Malunggay. Otherwise known as the "mustard tree," the leaves of the malunggay is a good source of vitamin A and is an effective cure for scabies.

Tomato. Some people think that drinking tomato juice everyday is better than drinking other juices. The reason? It has lycopene which is known for its cancer-fighting and preventing qualities. Lycopene is also believed to be good for protecting human cells from nitrogen oxide given off by tobacco smoke and diesel fumes.

Banana. Yes, the banana's leaves can be used to treat mild bleeding. Just pound the leaves until soft and apply the juice on the wounds. Also, the fruit is good for alleviating stomach disorders. However, don't eat too much of the fruit as well. The fruit has serotonin which could elevate blood pressure and which might contribute to some heart conditions.

Tsitsirika or Chichirica. This flowering shrub can easily be found in the country as it is a very hardy plant and is said to be good for diabetes. How to use it? Just put some of its leaves in a cup and pour boiling water over it to make tea. Cover for a few minutes to let cool and drink.
