Benefits of Date

It's Ramadan and in the month of Ramadan Muslims use dates during the time of Iftar and Sehri. There are numerous benefits of using dates. I will be listing the brief yet lasting effects of dates.

1. One of the best benefit of eating a date is that it gives you energy within minutes. If you are low all day and want to get energized then have 1-2 dates, and you will see the positive effect of it.

2. If you have intestinal disorder then eating dates ( How much and how many, I still have to search on this part ) will remove the intestinal disorders.

3. If you have constipation then soak 2-3 dates in water over night. In the morning eat these dates along with water. If you have bowl movement problem then dates will help you in correcting the bowl movement as the dates have high level of soluble fiber.

Use Dates regularly in the month of Ramadan as individual has to fast for whole day so high level of energy is required to sustain throughout the day. Take 3 dates in sehri and 3-4 dates in aftari as means of energy booster.

There are lot's of people who get hemorrhoids or Piles. This is a painful experience which no body wants to experience. If you have Hemorrhoids  ( External or Internal ) then you have reached the right page, keep reading, as you will get to know that you can completely cure it.

If you have Hemorrhoids, you know this for sure that the doctors give only option of Operation to remove it. Yes, it can be removed through operation ( surgery ) but it can come back because piles are created because of different habits which the individual develops through time.

These habits which trigger piles are

1. Sitting for long hours.
2. Eating meat a lot.
3. Drinking less water through out the day.
4. Drinking alcohol a lot.
5. Drinking Soft drinks a lot.
6. Have a bowl syndrome.
7. Having constipation for a long period of time.

First thing first here are some habits which you need to replace immedietely if you have External  or internal piles.

1. Start Drinking a lot of water that is you need to drink at least 3 liters of water through out the day, even if you think you are not thirsty.

2. Stop drinking alcohol and soft drinks

3. If you have bowl syndrome or you have constipation for a long time then you need to use
Ispaghula husk or Ispaghul husk ( Psyllium husk ) . Ask first from doctor if you are using any medications for constipation. This is the most important because constipation and piles are interrelated. If you are able to control constipation then you have recovered 50% from Piles.

Once you have started to work on these 3 steps next you need to cure Piles completely.

Here are the steps to completely cure piles or Hemorrhoids

1. Take small size onion and cut it into 6 pieces. Take three in lunch and three during dinner time. Yes, it will have bitter taste but within 12 hours the swelling and pain of Hemorrhoids will be gone. You have to do this method for 3 days.

2. Drink  one glass of mild hot milk before going to bed. If doctor has allowed you to take Psyllium husk then add one small table spoon of Husk in Mild hot milk and drink it. You will realize that once you have done this your stool starts to pass regularly. Make it a habit of drinking one glass of mild milk each day.

3. If you are muslim then recite Surah Al Ala after every salah and if you recite it more often then it will help you to cure from piles.

I hope this helps to those who have piles. Remember that surgery is not the only option, as if you don't cut the root of problem it will come back.

And don't mix Piles syndrome with any other condition; you need to understand this thing.

How to keep Yourself Healthy In Iftar and sehri

In the month of Ramadan, Muslims from all over the world do fast for 29 to 30 days. Where fasting brings lots of joy and happiness, one must keep oneself in good form and in good health. Unfortunately, no body tells us that we should keep a control on hunger during Aftar and in Sehri. Due this reason millions of people get ill and get bad stomach each month.

Here are the precautions which you can use to avoid stomach ache, pain, nausea and avoid bad health.


First, keep this thing in mind that you are not in a competition or what so ever. There is a psychological effect during the time of Sehri that impacts the individual and makes him/her think that for 12-18 hours I will not be able to eat or drink. This then creates a reaction and one starts to stuff the stomach with lots of food and water.

Please control your thoughts during the time of Sehri, otherwise if you stuff too much then believe me in exactly 1 or 2 hours you will get stomach ache / stomach pain and that my friend you don't want it trust me on this, I have been through this situation.


Second, when the time of Iftar comes near please don't imagine food and chilled water/cold drink because the reason is that if you do this, you will end up eating a lot more than usual and same reaction will start. If you don't believe this, then ask any doctor that should I eat to full in aftari ? You will get your answer.

To start take a date and take some water ( half or less glass ) then go to namaz after that when you come back start little and drink water after 2 hours of eating.


Please don't take cold drink in Iftari as it will hurt you badly because it dehydrates the body. Just go for plain simple water.


Keep the fast for Allah and you will be strong the whole day.

If you keep stuffing your stomach to full during iftari and sehri then trust me you will end up in hospital and same advice will be given to you, that control your hunger and eat light.

Do You Not Feel Hungry In The Morning ?

Do You Not Feel Hungry In The Morning ?

If you don't feel hungry in the morning or you feel that you are full even if your stomach is empty or you feel nausea after seeing morning breakfast, then you are not alone. 

I do get these kinds of symptoms often here is what I am doing to over come it.

1. Take really light dinner.

2. One table spoon of Real Honey after one meal i.e. you can take that one table spoon after breakfast, lunch or dinner.

3. Go to bed early, as I have experienced that if I sleep full 8-9 hours I feel really hungry and I don't any kind of nausea feeling.

Update: I am perfectly feeling healthy after being published this post on 27.6.2014. This is written on 2.7.14, so it took 6 days to recover from bad feeling in stomach to feeling perfectly fine. I mostly experimented with honey and taking light dinner. I am fasting so I have to get up early in the morning so not getting 8-9 hours of sleep in one set.
