Raju Guides: Claimed cure for diabetes

leave a comment »

A woman (65) was diabetic for the last 20+ years and was taking insulin twice a day. She used this homemade medicine for a fortnight and now she is absolutely free of diabetes and is taking all her food as normal including sweets. The doctors have advised her to stop insulin and any other blood sugar controlling drugs.
Wheat 100 gm
Gum (of tree) (Gondh) 100 gm
Barley 100 gm
Black Seeds (Kalunji) 100 gm
Method of Preparation : Put all the ingredients in 5 cups of water. Boil it for 10 minutes and put off the fire. Allow it to cool down by itself. When it has become cold, filter out the seeds and preserve water in a glass jug or bottle.
How to use it? Take one small cup of this water every day early morning when your stomach is empty. Continue this for 7 days. The next week repeat the same but on alternate days. With these 2 weeks of treatment the patient will become normal and can eat normal food without any problem.

Waiting and waiting

leave a comment »

Mrs Ghosh, 67, is garrulous but friendly and helpful and hence has a large circle of friends.
Her husband, 75, is the opposite, a man of very few words, reserved to the point of being unsocial, and only seen in public going to and from the vegetable seller. He is the antithesis of your typical, chatterboxer Bong male.
Here’s a conversation between the two:
Mrs Ghosh: I have read somewhere – and my friends also tell me – that most men regret getting married. What do you have to say?
Mr Ghosh: (Long silence).
Mrs Ghosh: I am waiting for your answer.
Mr Ghosh: (Very long silence).
Mrs Ghosh: Six months later I am still waiting for his answer.
