Assalaamu Aleykum Warahmatulallah Wabarakatuhu!
I just found out how the black seeds affect our immune system and its just amazing, subhan Allah! This is an excerpt from an article. To read it all please click here.
"The majority of our health problems have the same causes- infection by micro-organisms such as bacteria, viruses, parasites and fungi. When using clinical (allopathic medicines) each symptom is treated individually and usually with synthetic chemically manufactured medicines that contain alcohol and other harmful ingredients. Black seed is effective at treating the body as a whole and fights the actual cause of the symptoms. Black seed regulates too weak or too strong reactions of the immune system, is excellent for treating chronic, allergic and hormonal diseases, black seed support metabolism, improve digestion, helps to lowers blood sugar levels. It is used to dispel worms and parasites from intestinal track. It is useful in soothing bronchitis and coughs, increase body tone, stimulates menstrual periods, increases the flow of breast milk, provides quick energy, increases sperm count, calms the nervous system, encourages hair growth and retards hair fall out, and prevents skin wrinkling."
A study has shown that taking only a gram of black seeds twice a day will improve your immune system. I therefore have decided to take black seeds daily. I have not felt lately and I feel my immune system has gotten weaker. I shall take the seeds twice a day (total of approx 6 grams) in powdered or whole form with honey mixed in i glass with warm water on an empty stomach each morning (this is said to also clean the liver and kidneys) and also mixed with honey after dinner. I will continue doing so for 2 months and will report how I feel during the process. Insha Allah!
