Healing Properties of Fruits: Banana

Bananas
Bananas have very cooling thermal nature, they are sweet in flavor. These fruits have the property to lubricate the intestines and lungs, to treat constipation and ulcers. They are beneficial for conditions related to thirst and dryness. For dry lung conditions and dry cough, eat bananas that have been sliced and cooked into a thick soup. Before their completely ripe stage, bananas have an astringent property: use partially ripened steamed bananas for diarrhea, colitis, and hemorrhoids. For hemorrhoids, steam the whole banana until very soft and eat one organic banana with skin twice a day on an empty stomach.

Bananas detoxify the body. In addition, their cold nature and high sugar content are helpful in the treatment of drug addiction (especially alcoholism) marked by heat signs and sugar cravings during withdrawal.

Rich in potassium, bananas are used generally for hypertension. Because they can reduce blood pressure, are easy to digest, and also moisten dryness, bananas are a good food for many old people (blood pressure, dryness, and digestive weakness tend to grow with age). Bananas are commonly given to children and infants, although they should be used carefully with children who are cold, inactive, or frail.

One of the most painful tendon injuries is Achilles. But there are also ways to avoid these injuries. Here are some of them: You’ll feel a burning and piercing in the tendon above your heel and it can even make a crackling sound when you move it. Any higher up your calf and it’s more likely that you’ve strained or pulled a muscle. Rupturing your Achilles tendon is a exceptionally painful experience and you’ll know when you’ve done it.

Restricted blood flow to this area slows repair and pain will worsen if you keep training . Four important factors in healing the Achilles are: rest, ice, compression and elevation. If your tendon is harmed take a break from all weight bearing sport (except swimming) for at least 2 weeks. You can recover from mild injury in a couple of weeks but a severe one can take 5 months.

Diabetes Food Pyramid

This diabetic food pyramid functions in a similar way to the regular food pyramid. One of the main differences is that the diabetic food pyramid focuses on limiting sugar intake . Diabetes is a disease that prohibits people from eating sugar at the same levels that they used to. This does not mean that all diabetics have to avoid sugar like vampires avoid the sun! Some people have mild cases that enable them to eat sugar once in a while. Others have to avoid it at all costs. The diabetic food pyramid is a lifesaver to many people. Just by looking at the pyramid they can tell which foods to eat and which ones not to. It also suggests serving sizes and suggestions for planning whole meals. The diabetic food pyramid has six categories of food groups. At the bottom the main group is grains, starchy vegetables, and beans. The second grouping on the diabetic food pyramid includes vegetables and fruits . The third includes diary products, meats and other sources of protein. At the t

Causes of Easy Bruising: Reasons Why People Bruise Easily

Bruising , a reddish or purple discoloration under the skin, most often results from trauma to the small blood vessels, called capillaries, but can also occur spontaneously. How and Why Bruises Occur Blood leaks out of the capillaries and accumulates under the skin, gradually absorbing over several days. Bruising most often occurs because people run into objects or experience other trauma. Most bruising is easily explained, but frequent bruising that occurs without obvious cause needs prompt investigation, since several serious diseases can cause bruising. In general, women bruise more easily than men. How Aging Increases the Risk of Easy Bruising Bruising increases as people age for several reasons. Skin thins as people age and the capillaries become more fragile. The layer of fat that cushions blood vessels and protects them from injury becomes thinner as well. Older people often take medications and supplements that thin the blood and contribute to easy bruising. Visi
