Learning from the seniors for our betterment - benefits of betel leafI am suffering from the bones degeneration and spondilysis. By hearing this a friend of my wife suggested to use betal leaves daily to enhance the calcium level indirectly. With that suggestion that friend offered a plant of betal also to have in the house. Accordingly we stated to use the betal leaves daily. But on the other day another person advised me not to use the betal leaves as the practice leads to mouth ulcer or cancer. Since then we stopped using the betal leaf. But to the contrary on next fews an aged lady (my mother's elder sister)from village came to our house and astonished by seeing the plant of betal leaves. But shocked on hearing from us about the stoppage and she nearly ordered me to continue with the following explanation. Using betal leaves after breakfast the supari should be more as it prevents the body heat in the daytime. Using the betal after lunch with slightly excess of lime as it control the gas in the body. Using betal leaves with excess leaves in the night after dinner prevents the flum assemble in chest.
On hearing this I learned that there are some valuable reasons on every practice of our elders.
