    Magical Healing and Cleaning BANANA

    Post by vijaybali on Wed Jan 27, 2010 12:37 am

    Hai friends,

    I find material related to banana and it's power so i am going to share it.

    Why bananas are actually one of the greatest medicines in the world

    Great for high blood pressure, depression and even for hangovers and warts

    But did you also know you could use them for polishing wood and leather - and for removing scratches from CD?!

    If you are yet to be completely convinced by the medicinal attributes of the banana then how about this? The banana plant is not actually a tree at all but the world’s largest herb!
    And what a big herb it is! No wonder then that the humble banana is such a good medicine for all kinds of conditions including high blood pressure, anaemia, ulcers, depression and hangovers.

    What I have also been amazed to find out recently is how useful it can be for cleaning around the house and for fertilizing the garden. I have even found instructions for using banana to get rid or scratches on a CD!

    In a second I am going to give you a whole list of medicinal and household uses of a banana. But first, two interesting general banana tips worth noting:

    Why you must always wash a banana before handling it
    First of all, always wash a banana before handling or eating it - preferably with a brush. Why? According to Ann Zander, a food safety expert from Colorado State University, 100 people have probably touched that banana before you. If you touch the skin, you’re likely to spread germs onto the flesh.

    “If you have somebody who hasn’t washed his hands after the bathroom or has the flu, that’s all over it.”

    How to stop bananas from over-ripening before you need them
    Secondly, if you don’t want a bunch of bananas to ripen too quickly then separate them from the bunch when you bring them home. If you leave them connected at the stem, they ripen faster.

    So why exactly is the banana such a powerful medicine?
    It is highly possible that bananas contain active ingredients that science has not yet put a name too. In the meantime, however, there’s plenty going on in that thick yellow mush that we understand already - including vitamin B6 which is great for fatigue and premenstrual symptoms and tryptophan for promoting sleep and easing depression.

    Bananas, it would seem, are a natural soother and nourisher with re-balancing properties. Always worth a try whatever you’re suffering from, in fact!

    So let’s look into a few of it miraculous healing properties in detail, working our way through the conditions or functions it’s good for:

    Allergies: There are believed to be chemicals in bananas that repel allergies. If you believe you may be suffering from any kind of allergy then trying eating one banana each day.
    Anaemia: Because bananas are high in iron, they can stimulate the production of haemoglobin in the blood.

    Blood Pressure: If you’ve been told to stay off the salt then grabbing yourself a banana is a perfect snack for you. Not only are they low in salt, but they’re high in potassium as well. In fact, they’re so positively good for those suffering from high blood pressure that the US Food and Drug Administration has just allowed the banana industry to make official claims for the fruit’s ability to reduce the risk of blood pressure and stroke.
    Brain Power: Thanks again to the high content of potassium, bananas can assist learning by making students more alert. By reducing irritability, it also makes the brain more clear and ready for action.

    Constipation (and diarrhea): Because bananas are high in fibre, they can be useful in helping to restore normal bowel action. As they are also believed to help promote the growth of beneficial bacteria in the intestine, they can be good for any imbalance or problems in bowel function.

    Depression: According to a recent survey undertaken by MIND amongst people suffering from depression, many felt much better after eating a banana. The substance in bananas responsible for this mind-altering effect is a kind of protein called tryptophan that the body converts into serotonin. Also known as the happy hormone, serotonin can make you feel relaxed and happy.
    Hangovers: One of the best ways of treating a hangover is to make a banana milkshake, sweetened with honey. The banana calms the stomach and, with the help of the honey, builds up depleted blood sugar levels. The milk also has a soothing effect and and tackles the dehydration.

    Heartburn: Bananas have a natural antacid effect in the body so if you suffer from heart-burn, try eating a banana for soothing relief.

    Morning Sickness: When I was suffering from morning sickness myself I remember that any advice about what to eat to stop it only made me more nauseous at the thought of it. If you can manage a banana between meals, however, it is supposed to help a lot!

    Mosquito bites: Next time you get an insect bite, try rubbing it with the inside of a banana skin instead of the normal cream. The amazing banana also appears to have anti-inflammatory properties as well.

    Nerves: Bananas are high in B vitamins that help calm the nervous system.

    Ulcers: Because of its soft texture and smoothness, the banana is a valuable food for those suffering from ulcers. It also neutralizes over-acidity and reduces irritation by coating the lining of the stomach.

    Warts: Those keen on natural alternatives swear that, if you want to kill off a wart, take a piece of banana skin and place it on the wart, with the yellow side out. Carefully hold the skin in place with a plaster or surgical tape!

    Uses around the home, garden and in the bathroom!
    Great for boosting the growth of your rose bushes. Bury your banana skins about four inches deep into the ground. Tear them up first so they can get to work quicker.

    Polish your shoes. Simply use the inside of the the peel to apply a cleansing, buffing polish to your shoes. Then wipe clean and buff with a lint-free cloth.

    Polish wood furniture. Got an over-ripe banana sat in the fruit bowl? Then use it to get a great finish on your wood furniture!
    Get scratches off a CD. You remember how we were told that CDs were better than records because they never scratched? What a lie that was. But help is at hand!

    Here’s what to do: Slice a banana length ways down the middle, keeping the skin on so that you can hold onto it. Now hold onto the half of a banana and rub the fruit part all over your CD for about one minute. Be sure that you get it into all of the surfaces on the CD. Do this in a circular motion.

    Next, turn the banana over and rub the peel on the CD in a circular motion for a few seconds. Then use something like a window cleaner and a paper towel to clean the remnants of the fruit off of the CD.

    I’m still to try this myself so this is hearsay only!
    A fruity treat for dry, tired skin
    Bananas are great at moisturizing and nourishing your skin too. You can whip up a simple softening and hydrating face pack with some mashed banana and a spoonful of olive oil (leave on for half an hour).

    Alternatively, for a whole body treatment, add four strawberries and a few tablespoons of sugar to banana and oil to make a revitalizing exfoliator. Mash up the banana and strawberries completely first then mix in the olive oil followed by the sugar.
    Now apply the mixture to your body in the shower and especially elbows, knees and feet. Massage into your skin in a circular motion for 3-5 minutes then let the mixture set for 3-5 additional minutes and rinse away with warm water.

    Also try as a mask for your hair. Great for bounce and preventing split ends

    I have been given hair treatments in the past with banana in them. So why not go one better and just put banana on your hair?! Not only are all the vitamins, potassium and oils it contains great for nourishing the hair shaft, good old tryptophan is also know to be extremely beneficial for hair and skin as well.
    But what if you don’t really LIKE eating bananas?

    Just one more final tip: If you’re the kind of person who rarely feels inclined to pick one out of the fruit bowl, try whizzing them up with some other fruit in the liquidiser and drinking as a smoothie instead.

    It make you and your patient and your family healthy and energatic
