If we turn to history, we will see many statements by famous people about the healing properties of camel grass. It was often used in Ancient Egypt to facilitate labor in women, and also as an effective antipyretic agent.

The Prophet Muhammad mentioned fenugreek in his advice to Muslims, advising everyone to heal themselves with the help of this plant.

A famous English scientist named Kleber believed that camel’s herb for its medicinal properties is equivalent to all other medicines in the world.

Hippocrates also paid due attention to shamballa, describing her remarkable qualities.

I can assure you that fenugreek is so beautiful, it has such a huge quantity of valuable qualities that it is impossible to disassemble in detail all its merits that benefit the human body.

Different peoples have their own customs of using medicinal shamballa. For example, in India, it is popular among women in childbirth. It helps to recover from childbirth, strengthen the body, and also promotes lactation.

In Europe, the plant is used by women who suffer from painful menstruation, relieving spasms and giving strength to a weakened body.

A real treasure trove for tourists around the world is the famous “yellow tea”, cooked from hilba. Perhaps you’ve heard of such widespread trouble as “traveler’s diarrhea”. This disorder of the intestines, which is caused by a sharp change in climate, eating during long trips, lack of immunity in visitors to some microorganisms, completely safe for the local population. So, healing tea removes symptoms of the disorder and normalizes digestive processes.

There is also good news for lovers of healthy and healthy food – raw vegetables and fruits, as well as legumes, which, of course, supplement the body with a mass of vitamins and trace elements, but as a side effect cause flatulence due to high fiber content. Healing tea perfectly copes with bloating, eliminating discomfort in the digestive organs.

If you want to learn how to properly prepare and consume such tea, I’m happy to be ready to share a recipe with you.

Tea recipe

So, for this, of course, you will need a camel thorn itself, namely its seeds, which, fortunately, can be bought at a pharmacy at a very affordable price. Two teaspoons dried and roasted seeds without oil, pour a glass of boiling water, then put on a weak fire and cook for about ten minutes.

After that, pour the drink into a cup and drink like a regular tea. Seeds, as an option, can be grinded on a coffee grinder, and, no longer boiling, pour a teaspoon of the resulting powder into a cup, let it settle for a couple of minutes.

It should be noted that tea is not only extremely useful, but also has a wonderful taste.

I also advise you to read my previous articles about water with honey, ginger for weight loss and basil.


Now, dear readers, let’s consider what danger can entail self-treatment helboy, and who better to abandon the use of this plant.

It is commonly believed that there is only one serious contraindication – this is pregnancy in the early stages.

Although many believe that fenugreek has a number of harmful properties. For example, a high estrogen content in a plant can adversely affect the health of women suffering from diseases of the reproductive system, such as tumors, fibroids, endometriosis.

Often the use of camel grass leads to the progression of these diseases. In addition, the same phytoestrogen, which is so much in fenugreek, can adversely affect the sexual life of men, disrupting the balance of male and female hormones.

In general, I should note that any self-treatment is not good. Even if you are sure of choosing a folk remedy that helps with this or that disease, do not be lazy after all to visit a doctor and consult with him about the use of such a remedy.
