HENNA, A CURE FOR HOT FLUSHES???

When you are going through days, weeks and months of not sleeping properly because of having hot flushes that are so strong that they wake you up every 1-2 hours, you will try almost anything to get good nights sleep.
HERBS THAT HELP

henna-menopause
I have been taking Black Cohosh, St John’s Wort, Vervain tablet form. Camomile, nettle, lady’s mantle and red clover as tea. After 2 weeks I got a better night sleep last night, Alhamdulillah praise God.
Hot flushes however need dealing as they come day and night.
The liver is connected with hot flushes. As heavy metals and toxins have built up in our body over the years the liver becomes congested. The liver is the main organ that deals with all the chemical metabolic functions.
If the liver is congested it will cause heat in the body and contribute to hot flushes, so what’s the solution.
I am currently researching Foods mentioned in the Quran, the Holy Book of Muslims and I came across camphor in Arabic kafir or kafur,
In Surat/ chapter 76 Al Insan/The Man, ayat/verse 5:
“Indeed, the righteous will drink from a cup [of wine] whose mixture is of Kafur,” This verse is referring to Paradise, the next life.
Now there is a difference of opinion whether kafur is camphor or henna.
Dr. M.I.H. Farooqi (Dr. Mohammed Iqtedar Husain Farooqi), in India, puts forward a very good argument that kafur is actually henna.
It is by divine guidance that I am able to join the dots and my firm belief that foods, herbs, drinks, mentioned in the Quran are sacred, that moves me forward.
I thought to research henna as a drink. I know henna takes heat out of the body when applied external; I used to be a professional henna artist for wedding and in museums.
Alhamdulillah I found that Henna can be taken internally.
According to Web MD
“Henna is a plant. The leaf is used to make medicine.

Don’t confuse henna with henna root (Alkanna tinctoria), also referred to as alkanna root.

Historically, henna has been used for severe diarrhea caused by a parasite (amoebic dysentery), cancer, enlarged spleen, headache, jaundice, and skin conditions. These days, people take henna for stomach and intestinal ulcers.

Henna is sometimes applied directly to the affected area for dandruff, eczema, scabies, fungal infections, and wounds.

In manufacturing, henna is used in cosmetics, hair dyes, and hair care products; and as a dye for nails, hands, and clothing.

People also use henna on the skin as temporary “tattoos.”
How does it work?
Henna contains substances that might help fight certain infections. There is also some information that henna might decrease the growth of tumors, prevent or reduce spasms, decrease inflammation, and relieve pain.”

There is a connection between the liver and hot flushes.

According to Prophetic Medicine BlogSpot

“Henna water is an excellent detoxifier. It can remove impurities and heavy metals which have built up in the body for many years. Therefore drinking it on an empty stomach is very beneficial for cleaning the liver and kidneys of diabetic patients, those with IBS, ulcers, kidney stones etc.

To make Henna water, take 5-7 grams of whole dried leaves and soak them overnight in 2 glasses of water. Filter and drink the water in the morning after Fajr on an empty stomach. This process can be repeated daily for 7-10 days.

Very dark urine will be expelled over this period and this is the proof that impurities are being expelled from the body. Henna Water has a slightly grassy taste and if you find this unpalatable you can mix a little bit of honey with it before drinking in sha’Allah.

One of the established Sunnah as recorded by Al Bukhari suggests that an infusion of water and Henna leaves was something which was used during the time of the Holy Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) but this Hadith does not specifically mention it as being drunk. [Vol 7, Book 71, Hadith 661]

Foods of the Quran, Sweet Smelling Plants Basil Mint Lemon Balm

 

Alhamdulilah,praise The Creator, I have to say.On this journey of studying and sharing Islamic Medicine, guided by Allah, the mysteries that are revealed to me are amazing.

I do not speak Arabic very well but I know my prayers, the most important Arabic is the Quranic prayers.

I thought that “rayhan” mentioned in the following chapter of the Quran was confined to the herb basil, that I love , but I was wrong.

ar-rayhan-sweet-plants-text
It encompasses all sweet smelling plants of the “lamiaceae” family.

This is what The Quran says.

Surat Ar-Rahman,The Beneficient, chapter 10-12,

“And the earth He laid [out] for the creatures.

Therein is fruit and palm trees having sheaths [of dates]

And grain having husks and scented plants.”

Sweet smelling plants, in Quranic Arabic ar-rayhan are botanically known as the Lamiaceae or Labiatae family.

Many of the plants are aromatic in all parts and include widely used culinary herbs, such as basil, mint, rosemary, sage, savory, marjoram, oregano, hyssop, thyme, lavender, and perilla. Some species are shrubs, trees (such as teak), or, rarely, vines.

Quranic Foods, Basil, Tricolore Salada

Basil Salada Tricolore……..

Basil

Reyhan (Arabic)

Tulsi (Hindi)

Basil is the fragrant herb that flavours this salad.This amazing superfood has so many healthful benefits.

HEALTH

 Basil contains a unique combination of chemicals generally known as flavonoids.

 The flavanoids in basil are called  Orientin and vicenin are two water-soluble flavonoids that have been of particular interest in basil, and in studies on human white blood cells; these components of basil protect cell structures as well as chromosomes from radiation and oxygen-based damage.

 They protect the cells of the body from radiation damage and oxidation, which includes anti-aging.

We have to remember in these salad herbs  they contain essential volatile oils and these essential oils can break into thousands of small molecules that get distributed around the body even at cellular level.

 The essential oils contained in basil are anti-bacterial.

These oils are so powerful that they are able to combat bacteria that have become resistant to anti-biotics maasha’Allah.

The essential oils in basil are also an anti-inflammatory.

This is traditionally an Italian salad, however this could easily be disputed by Middle Eastern and Asian nations. The delicate balance of cheese, fruit and herbs plus bread is as ancient as time it’s self.
Please choose your quantities according to your guests.

Ingredients.
• Tomato,
• Cucumber,
• Avocado
• Mozzarella cheese,
• Olive oil
• Black pepper
• Sea salt/kosher salt
• Basil herb fresh and dry

Islamically soft white unsalty cheese is the best to eat according to Islamic medicine classical scholar Ibn Jawziyyah. The scholar Ibn al-Qayyim in his Prophetic medicine said regarding cheese:
“The moist unsalted cheese is good for the stomach and passes easily into the organs; it increases the flesh and softens the belly in a moderate way. Salted cheese is less nutritious; it is bad for the stomach and harmful to the intestines. Old cheese restricts the belly, as does grilled cheese, and is good for ulcers and prevents diarrhea.”

Method
• Mix black pepper, salt and dry basil with equal parts of olive oil and apple cider vinegar.You could add fresh garlic and fresh green chilli to taste.
• Leave this vinaigrette to give the herbs the time to infuse into the dressing while you prepare the rest of the salad
• Remove mozzarella cheese from the water it comes with and slice into smaller pieces
• Wash and slice the tomatoes
• Wash and cut in half long ways the avocado, remove the stone and scoop out flesh from both sides using a large spoon and cut into slices about 1/2cm thick ideally.
• Wash and dry the herbs, you can be as generous as you like with the fresh basil as it has so many healthful benefits, Alhamdulillah, praise The Creator Allah.
• shredded the fresh basil leaves.
• Arrange the cheese, tomatoes and avocado however you wish
• Spoon over the vinaigrette
• Sprinkle with herbs
• Enjoy alone, with another salad or wholegrain bread.

BASIL….sacred super food…..antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, good for heart health, combats stress,fever reducer,immune booster, diabetes preventer.
