What ever we eat is Mother nature in the form of food .The fruits that we eat are all mother nature and as mother take care of her newborn so do our mother nature take care of us.
So all the fruits ,vegetables, spices, nuts and herbs have some kind of healing capacity in them that help us to stay healthy. Today I will tell about some healing property of some of very common vegetable and fruits that are always available in our kitchen.

Acidity and heart burn is a very common problem .
Eat a few almonds when your experience heartburn symptoms. Drink a glass of cold milk for quick relief of heartburn and acidity .Acquire one piece of clove and suck on it gradually .Drink fresh mint juice gradually after meals. Eat watermelon, banana or cucumber each hour in acute case.
Dark Circle is a problem that many of us face mainly we those who spent hours in front of the computer, excessive strain cause .Some very near neighbor of your kitchen can help you to get those mesmerized look of early 20’s.
Create a 1:1 mixture of fresh potato and cucumber juices. Soak some cotton and put on your eyelids and stay for 20 minutes and then wash your eyes with cold water. Apply a mixture of lemon and tomato juice (equivalent parts) on the dark circles 2 times a day. Make a paste of turmeric powder with pineapple juice and apply it for dark circles under the eyes. Apply compressed mint around the eye .Massage with almond oil under and around eyes at bed time daily for 2 weeks and see the development. Almond helps to get rid of dark circles, and is an excellent "skin food". .
Wrinkles – we spend thousand bucks to keep this fine line away from our face and those who can’t afford those costly treatment live a frustrated life full of stress. But simple day to day home remedies can cure this so called huge problem. Watch out-
Empty the contents of 3 Vitamin E tablets into a small bowl. Add to this 2 tablespoonful simple yogurt, 1/2 tsp honey and 1/2 tsp lemon juice. Apply this mixture on the face with the use of a cotton ball. Remain it on for 10 minutes and wash. Softly massage coconut oil on parts of skin prone to wrinkles each night a bedtime. A paste of turmeric made with sugarcane juice is enormous to avoid wrinkles and slow skin ageing.
Cut a green Thompson seedless grape in half and softly press it on your face on the wrinkles. Stay it for 20 minutes and wash with warm water and let it dry in natural air. Massage the core of pineapple on the face and stay it for 10-15 minutes before rinsing off. This works best on wrinkles. Applying juice of green pineapples and apples on the face every day for 10-15 minutes is fine for wrinkles and broken skin. One can apply egg whites to the skin under eyes to reduce wrinkles. Odor-free castor oil can be applied to the skin beneath the eyes or on that of the throat. Application of pure castor oil frequently avoids wrinkles.

Obesity-In obesity, there is an increase in the size and the number of fat cells all through the body. This causes a buildup of overload body fat. One of the places where this excessive body fat can easily be seen is around the waistline. A waist measurement of 40-45 inches or more in men and 35 inches or more in women is linked to an amplified risk for heart disease and other health problems associated with obesity.

Cabbage is considered to be an outstanding home remedy for obesity. Recent research has exposed that a valuable chemical called tartaric acid is present in this vegetable which inhibits the conversion of sugar and other carbohydrates into fat. Hence, it is of great value in weight decrease. Substituting a food with cabbage salad would be the simplest way to stay slim.
One or two ripe tomatoes taken early morning as a substitute for breakfast, for a couple of months, are measured as a safe method of weight reduction. They also supply the food elements essential to conserve health.

Stress is another major problem of our generation. Yes Mother nature is here also with Her love and care to bring us out from stress.
The leaves of holy basil have been found helpful in the treatment of stress. They are observed as an anti-stress agent. Recent studies have shown that the leaves protect adjacent to stress significantly. It has been suggested that even healthy persons should chew twelve leaves of basil two times in a day, morning and evening, for preventing stress.
It has a deep consequence on adrenal glands and the immune system; a sufficient amount of this vitamin, along with vitamin A, can help prevent many of the modifications caused by stress. Potassium deficiencies are linked with breathlessness, fatigue, insomnia, and low blood sugar. Potassium is necessary for healthy heart muscles. Nuts and whole grains are good basis of this mineral. Calcium is a normal tranquilizer. Deficiencies can cause fatigue, nervousness and stress. Dairy products, eggs, almonds, and soya beans are rich basis of this mineral. Magnesium is known as nature's tranquilliser and is associated with the avoidance of heart attacks. It is establish in many fruits, vegetables, seeds, dates, and prunes

Mother nature is always busy to keep us healthy and see us happy. So is it not our duty to return back the favor by preserving and saving the greens in whatever possible way we can. I will place my humble request that if you can’t join any movement for saving greens then at least you can plant some herbs
in your kitchen window, show the world that you are thankful to Mother nature for all Her unconditional love and gift.
