Amla Juice – A Powerhouse of Nutrients I believe

I have never heard of this Gooseberry from India before. I recieved this article the other day and found it very interesting. Have got an Indian shop around the corner so will check on them tomorrow to know more about it. This is what they look like

Here are some of the benefits:-

  • Treat cough and flu as well as mouth ulcers.
  • reduce  cholesterol levels
  • Helpful in managing diabetes better as well as respiratory ailments.
  • The alkaline nature of amla helps in clearing the system and strengthening the digestive system.
  • Supports liver function and flushes out toxins
  • Along with Vitamin C, amla is also rich in iron, calcium, phosphorous
  • Amino acids and protein present in amla help in hair growth, tackling hair fall and fortifying the root as well as the shaft,
  • Fight marks, pigmentation and blemishes

All sounds pretty good to me. To read the article in full go to NDTV Food

A Piece Of Useful Information For A Cough


You wonder?

This is a very helpful remedy for coughs……

Now that the cold & flu season is upon us, here’s an e-z remedy that certainly can’t hurt trying.

Vicks vapo-rub

During a lecture on essential oils, they told us how the foot soles can absorb oils.

Their example: put garlic on your feet and within 20 minutes you can ‘taste’ it.

Some of us have used vicks vaporub for years, but i’ve never heard of this. And don’t laugh!

It works 100% of the time, although the scientists who discovered it aren’t sure why.

To stop night time coughing in a child (or adult as we found out personally),

Put vicks vaporub generously on the soles of your feet,

Cover with socks, and the heavy,

Deep coughing will stop in about 5 minutes and stay stopped for many,

Many hours of relief.

Works 100% of the time and is more effective in children than even very strong prescription cough medicines.

In addition, it is extremely soothing and  comforting and they will sleep soundly.

Just happened to tune in a.m. Radio and picked up this guy talking about why cough medicines

In kids often do more harm than good, due to the chemicals in them.

This method of using vicks vaporub on the soles of the feet was found to be more effective

Than prescribed medicines for children at bed time. It also seems to have a soothing and calming effect

On sick children who then went on to sleep soundly.

My wife tried it on herself when she had a very deep constant

And persistent cough a few weeks ago and it worked 100%!

She said that it felt like a warm blanket had enveloped her,

Coughing stopped in a few minutes.

So she went from every few seconds uncontrollable coughing and slept cough-free for hours every night she used it.

If you have grandchildren, pass this on. If you end up sick, try it yourself and you will be amazed at how it works.

Try it the next time you get a bad cold.

The only thing you can lose is your cough.
