How we use it

In bronchitis and hiccough—Make a decoction of the leaves and drink an ounce twice a day with honey to expectorate phlegm, clear airways and reduce irritability.

In heart ailments—Drink half an ounce of decoction made of the wood apple leaves with milk everyday to tone your heart.

In diarrhoea and dysentery—Wood apple is constipating in nature and is used with great benefits in an upset stomach. Soak the fruit in water for an hour and mash the fruit in the same water before drinking. This quickly arrests diarrhoea and restores digestion.

In bleeding conditions—The ripe wood apple is a rich source of Vitamin 'C' and can be given as such in bleeding gums or any excessive bleeding condition. It can also be fried in ghee.

In dysuria—Soak the ripe wood apple in water and drink the water after a couple of hours with some sugar. This relieves burning sensation and pain accompanying urination. This preparation also quenches long standing thirsts.
