I have been drinking barley all my life, not knowing the other hidden benefits and real facts. Again, my wifey had studied the Chinese Medicine from the Beijing's professors in earlier years and pointed out to me that Barley is more than just a mere cooling drink for our body. It has medicinal properties that could even treat various lesser known ailments.
My recently widowed father is suffering from prostate cancer which seems to be showing signs of recovery. Other than this, he is healthy with good appetite. He has swollen feet which is better known as Edema or the feet that contains water retention. This Edema has slowed down his walking as he feels unstable with his soles which wobbles like plastic bags full of water!
The doctor in the hospital could not offer me the right prescriptions to treat his feet. My wife was quick to share with me that the big & small grained barley is the right supplementary drink to get rid of Edema. I went to the largest Chinese Medicine Store inside One-Utama to buy several packets.
The above left bigger grain is suitable to cool or treat the lower bottom of our human bodies. The right smaller grain is suitable to cool or treat the upper part of our bodies. The above package costs RM2.20 and comes in a combination of both big and smaller grains which will nourish the whole entire body at one go.
Take a closer look on the extra bottle I bought. It clearly says "Reduces water retention and cures edema". I believe that it would help to drain away all the trapped water around your face, tummy and legs!
