When Chicken Soup Doesn't Cure You...eggs Will

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

So Okay I caught a nasty flu three days ago. Some of was due because I had family members who were already sick, and the other part was my fault....I would never zip my jacket and like to wear V-necks...because the weather was starting to get nice....But as it is Chicago the weather is crazy. Now It's actually snowing...Anyway Chicken soup does not work for me. I honestly feel getting more sick from it....I don't know why..... When I get sick I become very alert and I try to destroy the flu virus in two days tops...I seriously go wild. and start thinking of how I'm going to conquer the virus army as they are intruding MY kingdom...What you need to do is start building your immune system. I almost NEVER take medicine until it is the very last resort. But What I DO is this:

1.) Boil Eggs until very hot but don't let them harden... Break them into a cup and drink them...and any of the whites left in the shell s c rape it out with your spoon and eat that too.

2.) Eat bread with honey and vinegar...Just put vinegar and some honey into two seperate small arabic coffee cups and start putting it on with some bread. Extra Virgin Olive Oil Is great too

3.) Drink alot of water and tea ( the good kind that doesn't come from bags but loose) with honey in it.

4.) Take a Multi-Vitamin pill..

5.) Also Always put listerine on your tooth brush each time you are using it....so it kills the germs after each use....

6.) Walk or do a light physical activity in your home...if you just stay in bed all day it will get worse...

7.) Eating garlic and onions....this I havent tried yet as I'm not going to jeopardize my reputation at university....but I will be doing it when I come back home....

8.) Always be Positive and Laugh it up....because you will get the last laugh when the virus melt.....and scream in agony ....Serves them right for trespassing my Kingdom....yeah

Secret Tip: Enjoy a piece of crystal sugar.....it is very good...for the throat

I just wanna mention on the point you said about not taking medicine except as a last resort.

I remember hearing in a lecture that Imam as-Sadiq (as) said to not take medicine unless you need to take it i.e. as a last resort

and these days we see most (or maybe all) medicine say have some sort of side affects, so it's a good thing you aren't taking medicine except as a last resort :)

(just though I would mention it for others who see this thread and think avoiding medicine except as a last resort might be a bad thing)

A couple of years ago I used to be close friends with a Pakistani Pharmacist before he moved to Canada. One day he was coughing very badly in the pharmacy area and I told him " Take medicine! your cough is bad! What are you even doing at work....you work at a pharmacy you should know what to take!" I was stunned when he responded with, " Let me tell you a secret. Synthetic medicine weakens your immune system. It makes you more dependant on it. Pharmacy is a multi-billion dollar industry...some of the problems people have can be treated naturally...but they have become dependant on pharmacuiticals." Then he said, " I would never take medicine until it is the very, very, VERY last resort and you should do the same too." And I have kept his words with me ever since...He is very right Mashallah Edited by LebanesePrincess

    • @eThErEaL Surely the Arabs possessed some virtues before the advent of Prophethood, but we shouldn't fool ourselves into believing that these virtues outstripped their many sins and vices. As Ja'far ibn Abu Talib capably summarized in his address to the King of Abyssinia,  “We were a people of Jahiliyyah, worshipping idols, eating the flesh of dead animals, committing abominations, neglecting our relatives, doing evil to our neighbours and the strong among us would oppress the weak…” Their actions are repudiated time and time again by the Qur'an. "And remember the favor of Allah upon you - when you were enemies and He brought your hearts together and you became, by His favor, brothers. And you were on the edge of a pit of the Fire, and He saved you from it." [3:103] “And when the news of a female (child) is brought to any of them, his face becomes dark, and he is filled with inward grief! He hides himself from the people because of the evil of that whereof he has been informed. Shall he keep her with dishonour or bury her in the earth? Certainly, evil is their decision” [al-Nahl 16:58]   Now I don't mean to be racist towards the Arab race, and nor are the practices of the people of jahiliyyah reflective of most Arabs today. But it seems to me that it took the best of the 124,000 prophets to bring the Arabs of that time into line for a handful of years- before they rebelled against his teachings once more as soon as he passed away, all for the greed of power and authority.
    • As a historical source I think it is fair to use. We may not have rijal information on all of the chains; that's partly because our rijal books are mostly focused on hadith narrators of the second hijri century - companions of the mid to late Imams. Abu Mikhnaf himself was not close to the Imams, he was a descendant of a companion of Amir al-Mu'mineen (as), but he is relied upon by Waqidi, Tabari, Shaykh al-Mufid, and other Sunni and Shia historians. It's one of the earliest accounts of the event. He died (d. 157 AH) in the early part of Musa al-Kadhim's Imamate, and his chains to the event are very short. Since his text is about a public event, and Najashi called him a scholar of Kufa in his time, and since he was not criticized until much later Sunni scholars like Dhahabi, I feel that it is a good source. There are some discrepancies, and so it's not holy scripture, but I found it to be very useful when I first converted. Here is a good post on the topic: http://www.shiachat.com/forum/topic/235023655-why-is-abu-mikhnaf-reliable/?do=findComment&comment=2716964
    • I don't quite understand this.  Hypothetically, let's say one's father is against you getting married, so if you attempt to change your wali to a grandfather or an uncle who says yes to the marriage, will it still be illegitimate?  And there are some fathers who won't let them get married no matter what the reason. What then?
