Using the Banana Stem
August 21, 2010 11:10pm CST
Do you use Banana stem in your cooking? It is an excellent medicine for Kidney Stone. We use it in the form of raitha, curry and just cut it into pieces and add water and run the mixie and strain and drink it directly adding rice soup, or buttermilk with little salt.It is tasty and healthy too. We can cure kidney stones without any surgery. But for that we must consume it daily for some time.

Hello Maygodblessu Ji It feels great seeing you after several days. Since our childhood we use to consume banana stem and prepare several types of dishes and they are tasty and for health too. We even use sissa quadrangularis, in hindi it is called HADJOD, for making chutney, papads, wafers etc. which is a natural bone setter

Yes Crazydaisy All our medicines are in our kitchen shelves itself. If we use it in our daily diet,we need not go to any Doctor at all, unless for any unavoidable emergency. We will apply aloe vera gel and turmeric powder for any type of injuries and burns and take ginger juice and honey for indigestion, and curd for colic, cumin concoction for urine infection and asafoetida with salt and buttermilk for gastric problems, it will be cured the next day

My neighbour's son had kidney stones and severe stomach pain due to that. Everyone advised her to give banana stem to her son. She was giving curry, juice and yoghurt salad made out of banana stem and that boy was feeling better withing one week. It is a natural medicine for kidney stones. If one does not know how to cook, at least juice they can drink.

no we here in the US toss that in the garbage as its just hard stalk without any nutrition in it that I can see,. just fibers which mighthelp for constipation but for kidney stones? I would have to see that to believe it.There is nothing in the stem but fiber.

In India, it is available in the market Hatley. It is a regular diet for the kidney stone patients and even the doctors advice them to take it. Ofcourse it has lots of fibres. But there is a trick to cut them into pieces and cook. It is very good for the health. In India too several people do not know that it is edible. But we must select the tender one to cook and matured one for medicinal values. We cook it regularly and all our neighbours simply relish it
