Natural remedies

I'm big on these. I believe a lot of common problems can be treated if only we knew how to eat right. Everything Allah (swt) has created on earth is beneficial in some form or the other. However, when I came across this page on Zee News, I really wondered.

Remedies for baldness
- Scrub the bald area with onions till it becomes red. Follow up by applying honey over patch.
- Rub on the scalp with 1 teaspoon oil in which raw mangoes have been preserved for over one year. Repeat treatment frequently.
Remedies for high BP
- Eat 1 Papaya on an empty stomach daily for a month. Do not eat anything after for about 2 hours.
Remedies for burn treatment
- Chemical burn treatment: Wash thoroughly the burnt area under running tap water for atleast 30 minutes till the burning subsides.
- Electric burn first aid: Switch off the main electric switch.
Remedies for arthritis
- Warm mustard oil, spread it over madar leaf and foment the joint by spreading the leaf over the joint and keeping it there for a few hours for arthritis relief
Remedies for acidity relief
- Eat a cup of vanilla ice cream or drink a glass of cold milk to get heartburn and acidity relief within minutes
Remedies for acne cure
- Clove based face mask or a paste of Fenugreek (Methi ) leaves applied overnight on acne and washed off next morning
Scary!
