  1. Good listing you did here. May i also add that for peptic/gastric ulcers, cabbage juice have been proved, and i have gotten lots of testimonies, to be a very effective remedy. A cup of the juice for a week would cure it.
    Also, for cardiovascular diseases, avocado seed tea would just be the perfect remedy. I actually wrote extensively on this in my blog.
