This is a Noni fruit and blossom that is growing in our friend’s yard. We were taught, here in Panama, that if you take some of the Noni fruit, put them in a big jar, close the lid, and leave them in there for about three months, the fermented juice is FULL of amazing healing properties. We did try this a while back, and it worked! It is not the most pleasant-tasting drink, that’s for sure!
In doing a little homework on Noni juice, I have discovered it can be used to treat cancer, diabetes, heart disease, cholesterol problems, high blood pressure, HIV, rheumatism, psoriasis, allergies, infection, and inflammation. Some people also believe that the fruit can relieve sinus infections, menstrual cramps, arthritis, ulcers, sprains, injuries, depression, senility, poor digestion, atherosclerosis, addiction, colds, flu, and headaches! All of these benefits packed into one, nasty-tasting little fruit! I wonder how many people get past that initial taste?
