Asparagus is full of healthy nutrients. Everyone except leukemia suffers can enjoy this delectable vegetable and best of all it does no harm. For those whose experience with asparagus has been limited to the mush sold in cans, or in most restaurants; try preparing this treat from the fresh at home.
Select young thin spears instead of the larger more mature stems; bring some water to a boil while snapping off any woody ends from the spears; then place the stems in rapidly boiling water. It is most important not to over cook asparagus! Watch carefully and within a minute they will begin to change colour into a vibrant bright green. When this colour change is apparent; remove the asparagus from the water immediately and serve immediately.
The spears will be lightly cooked and full of important nutrients and cancer fighting agents; they will also still have a light satisfying crunch. Make asparagus a regular part of a healthy diet.
Maybe apostle Malm should really look into Ayurvedic medicine some more. It has some areas of medicinal practice that apostle Malm could benefit from. Perhaps it could help with his diabetes problems and poor eyesight. Maybe the apostle might want to work with the treatment for mental diseases brought on by demonic influence. Just sayin......since it seems mental issues are a big problem in the COG lately with all of these prophets, apostles and two witnesses floating around.Asparagus benefits the body in many other ways. Ayurvedic healing refers to asparagus as “shatavari” which means “women with a thousand husbands.” Ayurvedic experts have used shatavari for centuries to treat the symptoms of menopause as well as infertility and loss of libido.
In classical Sanskrit literature, Ayurveda was called "the science of eight components" (Sanskrit aṣṭāṅga अष्टांग), a classification that became canonical for ayurveda. They are:
- Kāya-chikitsā: "cure of diseases affecting the skin" (Dermatology)
- Kaumāra-bhṛtya "treatment of children" (paediatrics)
- Śhalya-chikitsā Surgery, "removal of any substance which has entered the body (as extraction of darts, of splinters, etc.)"
- Śālākya-tantra "cure of diseases of the eye or ear etc. by sharp instruments" (Ophthalmology[dubious ])
- Bhūta-vidyā "treatment of mental diseases supposed to be produced by demoniacal influence" (demonology / exorcism/psychiatry[dubious ])
- Agada-tantra "doctrine of antidotes" (toxicology)
- Rasayana-tantra "doctrine of elixirs"
- Vājīkaraṇa tantra "doctrine of aphrodisiacs"
