      Hi Swati, another useful article. Any aayurvaid will appreciate your article as there is indeed a method to consume fruits as you have clearly used. The right time and the body benefits, the wrong time and you can do more harm than good. I did not know that oranges are helpful for people with kidney stone related problems. Good to know. Thank you.
