Dr Oz’s Secret Power Foods
Dr Oz’s Secret Power Foods turned out to all stem from one type of food – Fennel. Who knew that Fennel came in so many different forms and can heal everything from an itchy scalp to preventing cancer. Doctor Oz spoke about Fennel Seeds, Fennel Tea, and even Fennel Seed Oil. Here is how to use all of these products:
Dr Oz: Fennel Seed Tea
Doctor Oz gave his assistant three clues in order to guess that his Secret Power Food was Fennel. The clues included that it is a Bulb Vegetable, it smells like licorice and it is used to flavor the alcohol called Absinthe. Dr Oz’s assistant guessed anise, which was a good guess, but the right answer was Fennel. If you have never had Fennel before, you can even eat it raw by just removing the woody bits on the top and cutting of the base. Fennel tastes great mixed into salads. Dr Oz said that Fennel is an ancient remedy for healing, and the more we research this today, the more we see that it really does work.
Dr Oz said that Fennel Seed Tea is a great way to turn off signals that activate Cancer Cells. You can either buy Fennel Tea or you can take the actual Fennel Seeds, smash them up with the back of a spoon to release the oils, and then mix about 1.5 tsp of the Fennel Seeds in a cup of warm water. Strain out the seeds and you will have a sweet licorice tasting tea that fights Cancer!
Dr Oz: Fennel Hair Treatment
Another great way to use Fennel is in the form of Fennel Seed Oil, which is an essential oil that helps to soothe an itchy scalp. Mix 5 drops of Fennel Oil with 1/2 mashed avocado. Massage the mixture into your scalp and let it soak in for 30 minutes. Then shampoo and condition your hair like normal and you will notice a less itchy scalp from the Fennel Seed Oil!
