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.

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.
