These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulations: but be of good cheer: I have overcome the world. – St John 16:32 (KJV).
This quote can be used to explain the existing conscious harmony as I continue to explore this powerful journey with Barbadian silent doctors.
It is a journey I would always cherish. I vividly remember when I was very sick, depressed, had lost my appetite and nuff weight, was faced with insomnia, plagued by high blood pressure and was confused and bewildered.
This season, however, I am more than overwhelmed in reporting that those health challenges which occurred on that journey are healed.
Presently, I am of good cheer and am happy to have fallen in love with “silent doctors”. I declare that I have overcome that world where lack of faith existed. I thank my Creator daily for showing me mercy.
I called that period “the acid/sweet experience”. Since I have experienced those happy healing moments, I use them as teaching tools to assist readers of this column.
Today, we are going to explore silent doctor lime, or Citrus aurantifolia. Limes contain many nutrients, including vitamin C, folate, potassium, magnesium, copper, phosphorus, and thiamin. Numerous studies have been conducted on lime – I implore you to surf the Web and do further research.
Lime juice has been found to be useful with cancer challenges. Scientists at Texas A&M University isolated two bioactive compounds from an ethyl acetate extract of Citrus aurantium. Documented results published in the June 2008 issue of Bioorganic & Medicinal Chemistry revealed that both compounds showed real promise as chemo-preventive and therapeutic agents.
I have used lime, flower fence and thyme as an antibiotic. Research also points to lime as an excellent detoxifier, appetite suppressant, callus treatment, and throat-infection fighter. Lime can also be used as a mouthwash. Washing the face with lime juice can assist with acne, skin tan and discolouration.
 It can fight constipation, settle the stomach, purify the blood and assist with toothache, weight loss, depression, fever, diabetes, urinary disorder, gout, peptic ulcer, arteriosclerosis, arthritis, dandruff, high perspiration, athlete’s foot, rheumatism, respiratory challenges and other health challenges.
A lime a day can prevent or heal. Additionally, plant a lime tree as a gift to the next generation. A relaxing and healing tea consisting of lime, bay leaf and ginger will always make your day. Be of good cheer.
