THE HEALTH BENEFIT OF BITTER LEAF
It is known by everybody, it grows every where and it is a homely plant. The igbo calls it onugbo, the Yoruba calls it ewuro and the hausa calls it shiwaka. Bitterleaf mostly is esed mostly as a vegetable in igbo land while the Yoruba use it more as a medicine. The fact is that bitter herbs are good for the body. Bitter herbs helps to tone the vital organs of the body, especially the largest organ of the body. Bitter leaves should always be taken fresh. Nigerians eat a lot of bitterleaf, but they often squeeze out the bitterness from the leaves before eating it. What is left then, is mere chaff, with little or no medicinal value. The following are some of the uses of bitter leaf.
1. STOMACH ACHE
Chew the tender stem of the plant like chewing stick and swallow the bitterness. This is a well known remedy for stomachaches. In some cases, the ache stops within a few minutes. An alternative is to pound the fresh leaves in a mortar and press out the juice. Add a pinch of salt to three tablespoons of the undiluted juice and drink. This brings immediate relief.
2. SKIN INFECTION
For skin infections such as ringworm, itching, rashes and eczema, the pure, undiluted extract of bitter leaf is excellent. Simply apply it to the affected part daily.
3. DIABETES
4. LOSS OF MEMORY
5. PROSTATE CANCER
6. GENERAL WEAKNESS
7. STROKE
8. PNEUMONIA
9. INSOMIA
10. ARTHRITIS
To mention a few. If you want directions as to how to use bitter leaf for treatment of the diseases mentioned above, please don’t hesitate to send me a mail to this address:- goodhealthforall@yahoo.com.thanks

Bitter leaf can also be used for diabetes. Diabetics should listen carefully to this good news. No need to despair or lose hope. God has not abandoned them. God has given bitter leaves as a sign of love and care of God.
