Health Tip:
The Magic Combination of Honey and Cinnamon.

For centuries, the delicious combination of honey and cinnamon is considered to be truly healing and beneficial. In fact, ancient people believed that it is an elixir of health and youth. It is scientifically proven that it has regenerative effects on the whole organism, in same time enhancing the body resistance to various diseases.
Honey , which is not in vain called “food of the gods”, together with cinnamon, which is one of the most exotic spices in the world, are certainly very useful when combined with other ingredients as well, but they have strongest healing properties when are used together. Here are part of the ways how you can use honey and cinnamon as well as different diseases which can easily be cured with this fantastic combination.

Retaining and helping the body to stay vital

Everyone wants to find the magic potion that will maintain them young, but few of us have guessed that it really exists. Tea from honey and cinnamon has strong regenerative properties that keep the body vital. For this potion, you need 4 tablespoons honey, 1 tablespoon cinnamon and 3 cups of water and they have to be boiled together. It is best first to boil the water and the cinnamon, and when the liquid cools, add honey so it won’t lose its nutritional properties. This liquid should be drunk during the day and certainly needs regular drinking to feel the results.

Strengthens the immunity

Already it is known that honey protects us from bacteria and viruses, but with cinnamon, the effect is even stronger. It has been proved that there is a significant content of vitamins and iron in the honey, so constant use helps in creating white blood cells and also helps in fighting against viruses and bacteria.

Regulating problems with digestion

If you face such problems, it is necessary to take two tablespoons of honey with cinnamon before a meal. In this way it helps the body to digest even the heaviest meals.

Heart problems

You need to mix honey and cinnamon in equal parts, and the final result should be in a form of paste. This mixture can be used instead of a marmalade, which contains too much sugar that is not good for your health, and it should be consumed regularly. In this way you reduce the cholesterol and the body is more protected from a heart – attack and various other heart diseases.

Reducing Cholesterol

This recipe is well known and it helps in fighting the bad cholesterol. You need 4 deciliters tea in which, after cooling, you’ll put 3 teaspoons of cinnamon and 2 tablespoons of honey and mix them well. In this way prepared liquid consume it three times a day. The results are amazing.

Gastric and bone cancer
For people who are struggling with stomach cancer and bone cancer, there is a combination that helps to win the battle with this disease easily. It is necessary to take 1 tablespoon honey, 1 small spoon cinnamon three times a day for a month.


Inflammation of the joints (arthritis)

For this inflammation there are two ways that honey and cinnamon can be used. First, for the direct treatment of painful spots you should mix 1 tablespoon honey with 2 tablespoons warm water, to which is added 1 small spoon cinnamon. It makes a paste that is applied on the infected areas. As a potion against arthritis, use a combination of 1 cup of hot water with 2 tablespoons of honey and a little bit cinnamon. Drink twice a day, in the morning and in the evening before bedtime. Be persistent, because it is more than once proven that this potion really helps patients suffering from arthritis.

Against hair loss

Did you have a long struggle with hair loss, but none of the shampoos or treatments helped? Maybe you should try natural ways to help yourself. In hot olive oil add 1 tablespoon honey and a small spoon cinnamon. The amount of oil varies so that the end result should be a thick paste. Apply this paste on the hair roots with massage and leave to act for15 minutes. Use it regularly and be astonished by your strong and healthy hair.

Acne and pimples

Mix 3 tablespoons of honey and 1 teaspoon of cinnamon, to obtain a paste that is applied on the acnes and the pimples every night before going to bed. The results are visible after only two weeks regular use.

Reducing weight

It is known widely that this magical combination helps in reducing your weight, thereby not allowing fat to be deposited on your body in the same time cleaning it out of toxins. It is necessary to boil 1 cup of water with half teaspoon of cinnamon. When the liquid is cool enough, after approximately half an hour, add 1 tablespoon honey. Drink half of the liquid before going to bed, and the rest in the morning, half an hour before breakfast.

Mr Waseem Both fasting and PP are extremely high, showing uncontrolled diabetes. You should also check HbA1c%, which will give an idea about past three months glucose control. If you are on treatment then the present drugs are not enough, you need additional therapy. Also look at the diet and daily physical activity which will add to better control.

As you all must already know, a good night's sleep is of paramount importance everyday for adequate relaxation of your body and to maintain normal health. Sleep is the time when your body repairs itself and prepares yourself for the next day. Lack of sleep or inadequate sleep for a prolonged period can cause a bunch of health issues such as high blood pressure, anxiety, psychiatric problems and even death. In this fast moving schedule that most of us have, we forget or are even unable to find enough time for a good rest in the form of sleep. Follow these simple steps to ensure a good sleep every night and stay away from sleep disorders and other health problems associated with unhealthy sleep habits: 1) maintain a regular sleep routine go to bed at the same time. Wake up at the same time. Ideally, your schedule will remain the same (+/- 20 minutes) every night of the week. A good sleep hygiene routine promotes healthy sleep and daytime alertness. 2) avoid sleeping during the daytime. It can disturb the normal pattern. 3) avoid caffeine, nicotine, and alcohol near bedtime. While alcohol may speed the onset of sleep, it creates problems in he second half of sleep. 4) exercise can promote good sleep. Exercise should be taken in the morning or late afternoon. Yoga, can be done before bed to help. 5) have a quiet, comfortable bedroom. Set your bedroom thermostat at a comfortable temperature. Generally, a little cooler is better than a little warmer. Turn off the tv and other extraneous noise that may disrupt sleep. Background'white noise' like a fan is ok. If your pets awaken you, keep them outside the bedroom. Your bedroom should be dark. Turn off bright lights. Have a comfortable mattress. 6) avoid heavy meals close to bedtime. 7) ensure adequate exposure to natural light. 8) avoid emotionally upsetting conversations and activities before trying to go to sleep. Do not think of, or bring your problems to bed. 9) stop using all your digital devices and stop looking at digital screens be it mobile phones or televisions at least 1 hour before the time you plan to sleep. Instead try reading a fiction book near bedtime so it makes you help realxed and de-stressed. Sleep well live healthy and live longer.

For now there is no such symptom to worry about, this might happen sometimes because of stress or inadequate diet, hormonal imbalance etc. And corrected by lifestyle and diet measures. Still if you want you can get investigated to rule out any cause.

I am 21years old and my penis is little bit bend downwards and I want that my penis will be straight or facing upwards. So what to do?

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)
Homeopath, Ludhiana
I am 21years old and my penis is little bit bend downwards and I want that my penis will be straight or facing upward...
An absolutely straight penis is unusual. Most have a slight curve when erect. But this should not be more than about 25° from straight. If your penis bends more than this, you might have Peyronie’s disease. Peyronie’s disease most commonly occurs in men aged 50–60, but it can occur in young men and in old age. The cause is thickening of the fibrous tissue in the penis on one side. This means that, during an erection, one side of the penis cannot lengthen, and the penis will bend. The direction of the bend depends on the position of the thickening (which can often be felt as a lump or lumps when the penis is limp).----------------------- If the thickening is on the bottom of the penis, the erection tends to curve downwards as in your case.------------------------------But a correct diagnosis can only be made after a physical examination as I do not think that your penis is bend downwards but it is bend little bit either to left or right--------------

Hi. If the itching is only in centre of chest then it is mostly because of sweat retention in that area. Just use powder 2 to 3 times a day. Avoid sweating as much as possible.
