We give you a few tips on how to treat different ailments with the help of salt, pepper, and lemon:

Sore throat

Combine a tablespoon of fresh lemon juice, ½ teaspoon of ground black pepper and one teaspoon of high-quality salt. Stir the mixture in a glass of warm water. Gargle the liquid several times a day to relieve sore throat and severe cough.

Stuffy nose

Combine equal parts of ground black pepper, cinnamon, cumin and cardamom seeds and grind them well into a fine powder. Smell the mixture, and watch how the sneezing will relieve your stuffy nose.

Gallstones

Gallstones are hard deposits of digestive fluids that form in the gallbladder. These block the digestive tract, and cause unbearable pain. Patients usually undergo a surgery to get rid of their gallstones.

But, you can treat the condition with natural remedies. Combine 3 parts of olive oil, 1 part of lemon juice and 1 part of black pepper. Use the remedy to dissolve gallstones.

Canker sores

Stir a tablespoon of Himalayan salt into a cup of warm water. Swish the solution in your mouth after your meals to heal the mucus membranes in your oral cavity. This will help you get rid of bad bacteria and heal the sores a lot faster.

Weight loss

Add a quarter teaspoon of ground black pepper, 2 tablespoons of fresh lemon juice and a tablespoon of raw honey to a glass of water. This elixir will improve your metabolism. Polyphenols in lemons keep you fit and enhance insulin sensitivity, which is essential in the fat-burning process.

Nausea

Soothe your upset stomach with black pepper. The scent of lemons relieves nausea. Combine a tablespoon of lemon juice and 1 teaspoon of black pepper. Stir the mixture in a glass of warm water. Sip your drink slowly until you notice some improvement.

7. Toothache

Combine ½ a teaspoon of ground pepper and ½ teaspoon of clove oil. This mixture will relieve your aching tooth. Floss and carefully brush your teeth twice a day. Cut off sugar and acidic foods.

8. Cold and flu

Juice half a lemon, and add it to a cup of warm water. This drink relieves cold symptoms. You can also leave the pulp and peel of your lemon halve in the water for 10 more minutes. Take them out, and stir in a tablespoon of raw honey. Consume the citrusy remedy until you feel better.

9. Nosebleed

Soak a piece of cotton in some lemon juice, and stick it in your nostril. Bring your head slightly forward, so the blood does not drip in your throat. This will also prevent nausea. The nosebleed will stop almost instantly.

Hungry ? What About The Five-Grand Gourmet Burger

Call it the real whopper.

If you want to taste one of the most gourmet burgers in The World the Fleur Burger 5000 is the meal for you. Chef Hubert Keller (as seen on “Secrets of a Chef” and “Top Chef Masters”) takes the traditional favorite to a new level with some of the world’s most expensive ingredients. He starts with a Kobe beef patty, then moves onto seared foie gras and truffles on a brioche truffle bun. Still doesn’t sound like it’s worth £5,000? Just wait. The restaurant will deliver a bottle of 1995 Chateau Petrus wine (worth about £2,500) and two crystal stemware glasses to the home of anyone who orders the burger. There is no need to order in advance.

What makes it so pricey? Lots of expensive ingredients. Start with a Kobe beef “patty” (more like a mountain of ground primo cow flesh), then top it with foie gras and black truffles. Oh, and don’t forget the “special sauce,” which is made with – no surprise – more truffles.

Do fries come with it? Yes – at least judging from the photo the restaurant supplied us. But no word on the provenance of these spuds.

C’mon, is that worth $5,000? OK, it’s not just about the burger. It’s also about what you pair with it, beverage-wise. At Fleur, the five-grand burger comes with a bottle of Petrus (the 1995 vintage, to be exact, dubbed by Wine Spectator magazine as “a genie in the bottle”). And don’t forget the stemware, either: Diners get a pair of Ichendorf Brunello glasses, imported from Italy (and the glasses are shipped to their home, post-feast).

Once again, is that really worth five grand? Probably not. The Petrus goes for about $2,500 a bottle and Ichendorf glasses can generally be found for about $75 a pair. As for the actual grub, figure a max of about $50 for the Kobe beef (Sam’s Club sells it for even less, $25 for the foie gras and $300 for the winter truffles. (And these are very generous maximums.) That puts our burger at about $3,000 in real “value” – so unless the catsup is made with liquid gold, diners are essentially paying for the gimmickry. Which, of course, is the real point behind most outrageously priced restaurant offerings: Think the headline-grabbing $1,000 “Golden Opulence Sundae” offered by New York’s Serendipity 3.

If anything, restaurants offer such items for the buzz they generate: Keller’s restaurant team anticipates selling only six FleurBugers a year.

What’s the inspiration behind it? It turns out that the Alsace-born Keller is one burger-loving Frenchman. He’s opened a mini-chain of Burger Bar restaurants – in Vegas, San Francisco and St. Louis. Plus, he’s written a “Burger Bar” cookbook. He also offered a similarly expensive burger at a previous restaurant in Vegas.

What’s the competition? Believe it or not, there are plenty of burgers out there with three-digit price tags. Most notably, New York’s Wall Street Burger Shoppe has its $175 “Richard Nouveau Burger,” which is also topped with foie gras and black truffles. On a more “budget-minded” note, Daniel Boulud offers the $32 “Original db Burger,” filled with braised short ribs, at his db Bistro Moderne in New York. But it turns out that Hurbert Keller, may not be able to claim the “world’s most expensive” title for his FleurBurger. The Carl’s Jr. chain has that honor – or at least it did back in 2006, when it introduced its $6,000 “combo meal” burgers, offered on the room-service menu at Vegas’ Palms Casino (the offer is currently not available). The “combo” part? You guessed it: a bottle of Petrus.
