yes ,you may but then you have to be careful that you do not eat anything that may put up blood sugar ,associate it with fenugreek seed to lower the sugar effect ,you can just stick to a very small piece .

You know so much! I love the choices of remedies you have here. One question, how does one make the onion juice and how much exactly? I don't have a juicer. Thanks!

The fix,either pound it and squeeze it or grate it and squeeze it ,if nothing is possible just have one onion that will help equally

How about gall bladder flush at least once a month until nothing more comes out? Since you can flush 1000 to 2000 bile stones per theraphy? Wouldn't lower your cholesterol? Since all these are by products from the bile made of salt and fat deposits? Yoru hub is very informative keep spreading the natural way to heal the body from deficiency and toxicity.

Bamboo,if you want to flush gall bladder you need to have papaya root powder for 21 days ,it has the ability to clean every bit of your bladder and have plenty of water .

second therapy is to have carrot juice for 2 to 3 days ,taking no other diet this too helps to clean gall bladder and also remove stones .

all the problem are related to each other so keeping our system health should be our first concern.
