Ripe—sweet, sour, refrigerant, aromatic, anodyne, constipating, aphrodisiac, cardiotonic, antiscorbutic, expectorant, stomachic

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.

In piles
—Make an infusion of bael and wood apple and drink it everyday to relieve piles.

In vomiting—Juice the tender leaves of wood apple, add pepper powder and honey and lick this preparation from time to time to suppress nausea and vomiting.

In tastelessness—Eat the pulp of a ripe wood apple with honey and saunph seeds to remove distaste and improve taste sensation.

In white discharge—Juice the leaves of wood apple and bamboo or powder the dried leaves and take them with honey.

In hiccough—Crushing tender leaves of wood apple in the palm and sniffing it up the nostrils arrests hiccough immediately.
