Members, especially Mr. Chigo.
I must thank Mr. Chigo for reading the question and answer from Ask expert section that helped him to seek the information in detail and raising a very good thread in forum section. I am proud to be recognised through Hernia by Banana stem.
Probably, following is the post that Chigo looked and referred. It was my second day response on 25th Mar 2011 after I had joined ISC on 24th March 2011.
A lady (Harsha)posted:
"My baby boy is 3.5 months old and his lower portion is bit lager then normal, after consulting doctor we were told it could be hernia which will be confimed only when he will be 1 year old and if it is hernia operation is the only solution.Kindly suggest if homeopathy has any cure and when can it be started?"
My(Sun) response was:
Dear sister Harsha, Though I am not a Doctor , I can narrate my experience with Hernia . When I was 30, I suffered from Hernia. The Doctors after examination diagnosed the problem as internal hernia and suggested immediate operation. Fortunately or unfortunately his operation theater was under repairs. My family elders suggested me to take Banana tree stems(the whitest part inside the stem) made as curry and taken along with meals and also to take it in the form of juice extracted from it. I had it for a week and I have no hernia problem till todate. I am quite Healthy, Hale and Hearty. The Banana stem has high fibre content and dissolves the materials caused to form Hernia . Since your child is just 3 months old the problem may be different and simple medicines may be available I am posting this for information on the subject "Hernia" for the viewers "
To extract juice: Cut the banana tree stem(only the whitest internal stem)of 6 inch length into small pieces. Put it inside a Mixie. Add very little water. Grind it. Filter the juice. Add very little salt to taste as the original taste is sour. Drink it. I suggest to have this juice for at least one week.
To make Banana Stem fry: It has a peculiar technique of cutting the stem. Firstly, try to cut the stem into small round pieces of 5mm thickness. While cutting it, we will find plenty of the stem threads(like the white sewing theads). They are to be pulled out from both the side of the cut pieces and thrown away. Then cut the round pieces into very small tiny pieces of 5mm x 5mm x 5mm size. Just wash them with fresh water. Have your frying oven ready. Pour little cooking oil. When heated up add little mustard(1/4 spoon),urd dal(1/4 spoon), onion pieces (One standard onion) and fry it.(We call it as thadka) Then pour the Banana stem pieces and fry it. While frying add Jeera(1/4 spoon) Garlic 10 pieces,Mirchi and salt as required for taste. You can also add little coconut paste to taste. When satisfied, switch off the burner and have the dish ready for serving.
To make Banana Stem curry: Have boiled dal ready and mix it with the above fry with all essential incredients.
If the members can include this Banana stem fry or Banana stem curry in their daily meal, at least once in a week, we can get away with Hernia problems.
To have the real effect of the dishes, we should avoid adding ingredients. Just a little taste without much ingredients will give the magical medicinal effect.
Members, I am not a good cook. I have explained in the cooking terms as per my knowledge and understanding. I took the assistance of my wife who is an expert. Members who have experience in cooking such Banana stem, may please give their view or suggestion or alteration to my preparation.
I hope Mr. Chigo is convinced with the preparation of banana stem to get away from Hernia. Members can discuss here if they desire.
