      Is it ok to put some winter melon in the barley water? My child doesn't like the taste of barley and I'm worried that winter melon will have an effect to her.

      Barley is reputed to cure all sorts of diseases including cancer, so I wouldn't be surprised if you also recommend this to anyone with UTI. This gives a great hope for those who are suffering from it. So can you drink this anytime of the day, or there is a limit to that (like a medicine which you take it with the prescribed dosage)?

      Voted up and useful.
