    Papaya – A wonderful digestive aid


    One of the favourite fruits in our household is the tropical papaya or paw paw, as some may call it. This orange fruit is packed with lots of Vitamin A and is a wonderful protein digestant. When eaten after a meal, the enzymes in papain, found in papaya, helps to break down proteins, thus aiding in the digestion process. This fruit is an effective remedy for stomach troubles. You can use the papaya seeds to make a tea out of it.

    To make papaya tea, simply dry some seeds, which contain natural papain. Use a tablespoon of seeds to a cup of hot water. Simmer in hot water for a few minutes if you want to get more papain out of it. That’s it!

    Breathe your way to health

    Where do you yawn? This is usually a sign that you are tired and mentally fatigued. When your nerve supply is depleted, you yawn. Chest breathing is useful to get that oxygen to the brain. You should also make sure that you have sufficient iron to oxygenize the blood.

    Do you know that laughter can help to exercise your chest? Deep breathing; exercise; and dry, warm air are helpful to your lungs too.

    Practise this: Take a hundred deep breaths before and after dinner. When you breathe out, flex those hands. This can stimulate circulation throughout your system.
