Mangosteen

I bought Mangosteen tea  from Life Essentials Herbal Store  in the Portmore Mall  876- 988-8668 OR 876- 988-3199.  I found out that this tea has many exciting benefits.
 This amazing tropical fruit, also known as “Queen of Fruits” is native to Cambodia, China, Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam.

Apparently Mangosteen fights the effects of aging, combats infection, relieves depression and anxiety, may improve eye health , also helps to fight allergies ( it acts as an antihistamine).  It apparently also helps and improve skin ailments .So try it , I am taking it for allergies so I will keep you posted on how well its working for me .Image

Jacqueline Hill’s Kidney Transplant support site

I am sharing this story of a young woman named Jackie who is suffering from Renal failure. She is only 32 years old and she lives in the parish of Portland. My sister died from renal failure so I can only imagine what Jackie and her family must be going through.  This is her story .

 

The cost for doing a kidney transplant is expensive and no operation of this nature has been recently done in Jamaica my local specialist has advised me to do it abroad. Having researched the cost and efficiency in different countries, the most suitable country for operation seems to be America. The cost is $us110 000 ($J10, 067,000 ten million and sixty seven thousand dollars), this covers the operation, hospitalization and medication for both donor and patient while in the hospital.

I am therefore seeking your support to obtain this vital and life saving treatment. You can donate to this cause through Scotia Bank account #813632 or using Paypal through my email hjacqueline27@yahoo.com. Please supply me with your email or fax number so I can provide receipts for the procedures done and the cost. Your help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

HERBS FOR CARPAL TUNNEL SYNDROME.

What is carpal tunnel syndrome exactly? It is a condition that causes pain, numbness, and tingling in the fingers or hands, particularly the thumb, index, middle, or ring fingers. Loss of sensation in the fingers and weakness in the hands can also occur.

Carpal tunnel syndrome is caused by repetitive finger and hand use (especially with improper positioning). A nerve called the median nerve becomes compressed as it passes through the carpal tunnel, the narrow passageway of bones and ligaments on the underside of the wrist.
