ORANGES FOR HEALTH
When my children were small around 2 to 3 years they often caught cold easily or ended up with fever. Whenever I fed them milk or food, they would vomit because of phlegm problems and they would cry a lot because they could not express themselves well. Most of the time I ended up with clothes and linen full with vomits. I must say at that time, I was not happy and I have to bring them twice a month to their pediatrician. Then I got a hint from my mom to give my children orange and intuitively I started.
I am happy to say that these past 12 years, oranges form part of my daily life. I just can’t live without this fruit. My children also love them a lot. Every week I find myself buying 20 to 25 oranges. I personally value its importance in my family. I try to make it a habit to have a glass of fresh orange juice everyday but it may happen I miss a day depending on the circumstances. We also love to consume it cut into quarter or sometimes in fruit salads.
Any infection, flu or cold may come in my family but we are more resistant and they must flee away thanks to oranges!
I have also noticed that my children no longer have problems of constipation ( when they were toddlers they got it often)
Tips: When cut into quarter put a small pinch of salt especially when we are recovering from flu.
These orange trees are awesome and they are a gift from God. We must use them abundantly for their numerous benefits.
