Natural Remedy for Joint Pain~

Natural Remedy for Joint Pain~


Joint pain can be extremely debilitating and tends to create a dangerous domino effect. When joint pain begins, your physical activity stops. In the long run, lack of physical activity weakens muscles which support your joints and actually causes your joints to hurt even more. And the cycle continues. With a few natural remedies you can stop the cycle and reduce your joint pain.

Instructions
Things You'll Need
• Fish oil supplements (omega 3)
• Eucalyptus oil
• Epsom salts
• Olive oil

1 Drink at least eight to 10 glasses of water each day, which is not only necessary for proper bodily function, it also helps to lubricate your joints and flush toxins which cause pain. Additionally, your diet should be as chemical free as possible, as chemicals in food tend to aggravate joint pain. Eat lots of fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains and lean, healthy meats such as poultry and fish.

2 Supplement your healthy diet with 2 to 3 grams of fish oil, which is high in the essential fatty acid Omega 3. Omega 3 has shown to greatly improve cardiovascular health and reduce the rates of heart disease; however, it also has fantastic anti-inflammatory properties. The combined health benefits of fish oil will help to get your body moving while stopping joint pain.

3 Massage painful joints with eucalyptus oil to help reduce swelling and inflammation and stop pain. Eucalyptus oil can be used anytime, but is particularly helpful before and after exercise or before bed when joint stiffness tends to be at it's worst.

4 Treat yourself to hot Epsom salt baths as often as needed to stop joint pain. The magnesium sulfate found in Epsom salts has both anti-arthritic and anti-inflammatory properties and can be absorbed through the skin. Additionally, the hot bath will increase circulation to reduce joint pain. Add about 2 cups of salts to your tub, soak and enjoy.

5 Replace your regular skin lotion with olive oil which not only helps to keep skin young and healthy, it also helps to reduce joint pain. A little olive oil goes a long way, making it an affordable natural remedy. .

Papaya leaves can cure dengue~



Papaya leaves can cure dengue~


Papaya leaves juice are a possible cure for dengue fever, a recent study revealed.

It has been reported that many people consume papaya leaves or pegaga juice to increase their platelet count after they contract dengue fever.

A recent study, conducted by a group of researchers from local and foreign universities, indicated that the powder from papaya leaves has substances responsible for the release and/or production of thrombocytes (platelets).

The study was initiated and led by Dr S. Kathiresan of AIMST University. Dr Kathiresan said the leaves of papaya fruit were high in complex vitamins that might help bone marrow to rapidly increase blood platelet production.

“The dengue virus’ main effect is on platelet production. Nor­mally, a platelet in our body lasts for about five to 10 days and the body replenishes them when required,”

“This virus destroys the body’s capacity to produce new platelets (during the period the virus is effective). The platelet count for a normal person varies from 150,000 to 250,000 per micro litre of blood. On becoming infected, a patient’s platelet count starts falling.

“A platelet count below 100,000 per microlitre is alarming – immediate medical attention is required. A platelet count below 50,000 can be fatal,” he added.

A fall in the platelet count prevents formation of clots and this leads to haemorrhaging, which results in both internal and external bleeding.

How should Take~

Accordingly it is raw papaya leaves, 2pcs just cleaned and pound and squeeze with filter cloth. You will only get one tablespoon per leaf.. So two tablespoon per serving once a day. Do not boil or cook or rinse with hot water, it will loose its strength. Only the leafy part and no stem or sap. It is very bitter and you have to swallow it like that.

I (dr.sharib ) glad to inform you that papaya juice is a natural cure for dengue fever. As dengue fever is rampant now, I think it's good to share this with all.
Please spread the news about this as lately there are many dengue cases. It's great if such natural cure could help to ease the sufferings of dengue patients..!!
