Okra can be seen everywhere. Both in the US and in Deeper Asia, it is called Okra. Some call it Ladies’ Finger or Gumbo. It is said to have originated from Southeast Asia. Some say from Ethiopia or West Africa. Here in Deeper Asia, it is commonly seen in wet markets and some grocery stores. We love it grilled or mixed with other veggies in meat or fish soups. It’s been traditionally seen as a good source of fibers, but that was before my friend discovered its medicinal use.
The okra treatment my friend discovered uses raw okra. Well, when cooked, okra can give us the following nutrition benefits: Protein, niacin, riboflavin, phosphorus, zinc, copper,potassium, Vitamins A, B6, C, and K, thiamine, magnesium, folate, calcium, and manganese.
In addition, some studies say it is proven to be helpful in normalizing cholesterol and blood sugar levels, healing asthma due to the special Vitamin C in it (which is an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory), removing atherosclerosis, and healing some cancers. If you’re worried about eye cataracts or acne and pimples, try okra–eat lots of it.
Raw okra is more powerful than boiled or steamed okra. The secret was to get two fresh and nice looking okra pieces, wash thoroughly, nip both ends, pierce with a fork on two sides, and soak in clean water in a glass overnight.
That’s it? That’s it.
Well, of course, you drink the water with the okra sap in the morning, and you do that religiously everyday. And that’s what Toots did after a month or so. Then he checked his blood sugar and it dramatically stayed on normal levels. Amazing. He’s been sharing the good news to friends since.
