Fenugreek seeds are a natural alternative for several health problems. Especially revered for their ability to aid digestion, they can also treat gastric ulcers, soothe inflammation and skin irritation, improve glycemic control in diabetics, and even improve cholesterol levels in your body. They have special benefits for nursing mothers due to their galactagogue properties. Simply brew up fenugreek tea with the seeds, roast and powder them, or scatter some sprouted seeds over your next meal!
While traveling by road, air or water, if you are feeling dizzy or nauseous, you could be suffering from motion sickness. Sucking on a clove, peppermint or ginger candies, or licorice may help. So can sipping on a cup of chamomile, fennel, or fenugreek tea. Placing some sugar or half a nutmeg under the tongue while traveling is another way to avoid an episode.
Herbal galactagogues like fenugreek, moringa, and garlic will stimulate breast milk production, but fenugreek may cause bloating in some. Ginger will increase breast milk within the first three days of giving birth. Fiber and calcium can also boost breast milk, so consume foods like whole grains, palm dates, and dark leafy greens. To physically stimulate milk production, apply gentle pressure with your hand. Learn how to hand express milk and breastfeed often to get things flowing.
Fenugreek seeds are a handy home remedy that stimulates digestion, gives you plenty of antioxidants, and even helps fight diabetes and cholesterol. But if you’re prone to nausea, indigestion, or stomach upsets, you may want to be cautious about having them. Body odor issues and appetite suppression are other milder side effects. For pregnant women, however, there’s also a possible risk of contractions that can lead to a miscarriage. So be aware of the possible effects of having more than a 100 gm of these seeds and take them in moderation.
Before sleeping, brush your teeth (dip your brush in baking soda), scrub your tongue, and gargle (use baking soda solution or triphala-based decoction). Lemon rind, mint leaves, cloves, fennel, cardamom seeds, and fenugreek tea are natural mouth fresheners. Hydrate well before sleeping. Avoid tobacco, alcohol, onions, garlic, and other fermented foods in your dinner. Eat fiber and zinc-rich foods.
Appearance, smell, and taste of an appetizer, as configured by its ingredients, can pique or stifle your interest in a meal. Ginger stimulates salivation and eliminates gastric problems. Bitter herbs, black pepper, fenugreek, and peppers can work up a screaming appetite. A good starter works best if you balance portion size and health with flavor so it is “just right.”
Type 2 diabetes is characterized by a lack of or under-utilization of the hormone insulin and increase in blood glucose levels. Have bitter gourd, amla, and the seeds of parslane to regenerate insulin. Jambul, black and Bengal gram, fenugreek seeds, and grapefruit can all maintain a healthy blood glucose level by either checking the conversion of starch into glucose or helping the body use glucose better.
