Rebung


Rebung
Rebung merupakan salah satu bahan makanan yang cukup populer di masyarakat. Rebung biasanya dibuang kelopaknya, diris-iris, kemudian diolah dengan cara dikukus atau direbus. Rebung yang sering dikenal dengan nama bung (bahasa Jawa), oleh masyarakat pedesaan sudah sejak zaman dahulu dimanfaatkan sebagai bahan masakan.


Tunas Bambu

Rebung merupakan tunas muda tanaman bambu yang muncul di permukaan dasar rumpun. Tunas bambu muda tersebut enak dimakan, sehingga digolongkan ke dalam sayuran. Dalam bahasa Inggris, rebung dikenal dengan sebutan bamboo shoot. Rebung tumbuh di bagian pangkal rumpun bambu dan biasanya dipenuhi oleh glugut (rambut bambu) yang gatal. Morfologi rebung berbentuk kerucut, setiap ujung glugut memiliki bagian seperti ujung daun bambu, tetapi warnanya cokelat.

Menurut klasifikasi botani, tanaman bambu termasuk kelas Monocotyle doneae, ordo Graminales, subfamili Dendrocalamae, genus Dendrocalamus, spesies Dendrocalamus asper Panen rebung dapat dilakukan sepanjang tahun. Panen raya rebung terjadi pada musim hujan, yaitu antara bulan Desember-Februari. Biasanya rebung dipanen saat tingginya telah mencapai 20 cm dari permukaan tanah, dengan diameter batang sekitar 7 cm.

Apabila terlambat dipanen, dalam 2-4 bulan saja rebung sudah menjadi tanaman bambu lengkap. Biasanya rebung yang diambil adalah rebung yang tidak bisa tumbuh dewasa. Tidak semua rebung yang tumbuh dapat hidup menjadi bambu dewasa. Pada kalanya rebung yang telah berumur beberapa minggu, berhenti tumbuh dan akhirnya mati. Masyarakat pedesaan sudah paham jenis rebung yang tidak bisa tumbuh dewasa, sehingga harus dipanen ketika muda. Namun, bila tidak ada, rebung yang mana pun dapat diambil untuk sayuran.

Untuk mengambil rebung dari rumpun bambu tidaklah sulit Dengan menggunakan pisau besar, sabit, atau alat lain, rebung dapat dipotong pada bagian pangkalnya. Setelah itu, rebung dikupas untuk dibuang glugutnya. Setelah bersih, rebung kemudian dipotong-potong kecil sesuai selera. Di pasaran, rebung dijual dalam dua bentuk, yaitu bentuk utuh dan bentuk irisan-irisan tipis.


Jenis Bambu
Bambu banyak ditanam di daerah tropis Asia. Tanaman ini dapat tumbuh di dataran rendah sampai di tempat dengan ketinggian 2.000 meter di atas permukaan laut. Tidak semua jenis bambu memiliki rebung yang enak dimakan. Beberapa jenis bambu memiliki rebung yang rasanya pahit Rebung yang biasa dibuat masakan, merupakan rebung pilihan.

Tidak semua rebung dapat diolah menjadi masakan. Bambu jenis apus (ping apus dalam bahasa Jawa) merupakan salah satu janis bambu yang tidak dapat diolah menjadi masakan, karena rasanya pahit. Jenis rebung yang memiliki cita rasa enak adalah rebung kuning, rampal / suling, ori, dan ater. Rebung dari bambu betung memiliki rasa paling enak. Rebung betung berwarna merah cokelat dan subang (ujung kelopak) pada ujung rebung berwarna ungu. Rebung dilindungi oleh kelopak-kelopak kuat yang berbulu halus.


Kaya Kalium
Senyawa utama didalam rebung mentah adalah air, yaitu sekitar 91 persen. Disamping itu, rebung mengandung protein, karbohidrat, lemak, vitamin A, thiamin, riboflavin, vitamin C, serta mineral lain seperti kalsium, fosfor, besi, dan kalium. Bila dibandingkan dengan sayuran lainnya, kandungan protein, lemak, dan karbohidrat pada rebung, tidak berbeda jauh.

Rebung mempunyai kandungan kalium cukup tinggi. Kadar kalium per 100 gram rebung adalah 533 mg. Makanan yang sarat kalium, yaitu minimal 400 mg, dapat mengurangi risiko stroke. Peran kalium mirip dengan natrium, yaitu bersama-sama dengan klorida, membantu menjaga tekanan osmotik dan keseimbangan asam basa. Kalium menjaga tekanan osmotik dalam cairan intra seluler, dan sebagian terikat dengan Protein. Kalium juga membantu mengaktivasi reaksi enzim. Gejala kekurangan kalium biasanya berupa pelunakan otot.

Kaya Serat
Kandungan serat pangan pada rebung juga cukup baik. Kandungan serat pangan pada rebung adalah 2,56 persen, lebih tinggi dibandingkan jenis sayuran tropis lainnya, seperti kecambah kedelai (1,27 persen), pecay (1,58 persen), ketimun (0,61 persen), dan sawi (1,01 persen). Serat pangan (dietary fiber) sempat cukup lama dabaikan sebagai faktor penting dalam gizi manusia karena tidak menghasilkan energi. Selain itu, kekurangan serat tidak menimbufkan gejala spesifik, seperti halnya yang terjadi pada kekurangan zat-zat gizi tertentu.

Akhir-akhir ini, melalui penelitian epidemiologis telah dibuktikan peran fisiologis serat pangan terhadap usus. Kurangnya konsumsi serat dapat menyebabkan timbulnya penyakit ala masyarakat Barat, seperti aterosklorosis (penyumbatan pembuluh darah), koroner, diabetes melitus (kencing manis), hiperkolesterolemia (kelebihan kolesterol), hipertensi, hiperlipidemia (kelebihan lemak), dan kanker kolon (usus besar).

Serat pangan adalah senyawa berbentuk karbohidrat kompleks yang banyak tedapat pada dinding sel tanaman pangan. Serat pangan tidak dapat dicerna dan diserap oleh saluran pencernaan manusia, tetapi memiliki fungsi yang sangat panting bagi pemeliharaan kesehatan, pencegahan penyakit, dan sebagai komponen penting dalam terapi gizi. Rata-rata konsumsi serat pangan penduduk Indonesia adalah 10,5 gram per hari. Angka ini menunjukkan bahwa penduduk Indonesia baru memenuhi kebutuhan serat sekitar sepertiga dan kebutuhan ideal sebesar 30 gram setiap hari.


Jadi Acar, Asinan, Tepung, Cuka, Keripik

Meskipun belum memiliki bukti ilmiah sebagian masyarakat percaya bahwa rebung mempunyai khasiat yang sangat bermanfaat bagi tubuh. Pada pengobatan tradisional, rebung kuning diyakini dapat digunakan untuk mengobati penyakit sirosis hati. Rebung juga telah digunakan untuk mengobati penyakit batuk berdahak dan demam.

Rebung dapat dimakan sebagai sayuran tunggal atau digunakan sebagai bahan pencampur sayuran dalam masakan lainnya. Banyak masakan eksotik yang diolah dari rebung, seperti: lumpia semarang, oseng-oseng khas Probolinggo, sayur ketupat bojonegoro, serta gulai santan. Rebung juga sering dibuat menjadi asinan maupun dibuat acar, yang sangat enak untuk dijadikan kudapan.

Saat ini rebung sudah dapat diolah untuk berbagai bahan makanan awetan. Dengan kemajuan teknologi, rebung telah dapat diolah menjadi tepung rebung yang memiliki kadar pati tinggi. Tepung jenis ini baik untuk dibuat bahan kue. Rebung juga dapat diolah menjadi cuka, yang sangat baik untuk digunakan sebagai cuka makan. Produk olahan rebung lainnya yang memiliki prospek cerah adalah: keripik rebung yang rasa dan teksturnya tidak kalah dengan potato chip dan rebung beku sebagai bahan untuk sayuran.

Bamboo shoots is one food that is quite popular in the community. Petals usually discarded bamboo shoots, sliced, slices, then processed by steamed or boiled. Shoots are often known by the name pal (Javanese), by rural communities since ancient times been used as a cooking ingredient.

Bamboo shoots
Bamboo shoots are the young shoots of bamboo plants that appear on the surface of base clusters. Young bamboo shoots are good to eat, so be classified into vegetables. In English, known as bamboo shoot bamboo shoot. Shoots grow at the base of the bamboo grove and is usually filled by glugut (bamboo hair) that itch. The morphology of the cone-shaped bamboo shoots, each end glugut has a section like the tip of a bamboo leaf, but the color is brown.

According to botanical classification, bamboo plants including doneae Monocotyle classes, orders Graminales, subfamily Dendrocalamae, Dendrocallamus genus, species Dendrocallamus Harvest asper bamboo shoots can be done throughout the year. Bamboo shoot harvest occurs during the rainy season, ie between the months of December to February. Usually bamboo shoots are harvested when the high reached 20 cm from the soil surface, with approximately 7 cm in diameter.

If harvested too late, in 2-4 months only bamboo shoots have become complete. Usually bamboo shoot bamboo shoot taken were not able to grow up. Not all bamboo shoots growing bamboo can live into adulthood. At times when bamboo shoots that have been outstanding for several weeks, stop growing and eventually die. Rural communities have understood that kind of shoots can not grow up, so must be harvested when young. However, if no, any shoots that can be taken to the vegetables.

To take a bamboo shoot of bamboo is not difficult by using a large knife, sickle, or other device, bamboo shoots can be cut at the base. After that, bamboo shoots glugutnya peeled for disposal. Once clean, bamboo shoots and then a small cut as desired. In the market, bamboo shoots are sold in two forms, namely the form of intact and forms a thin slices.


Types of Bamboo

Bamboo planted in many tropical regions of Asia. This plant can grow in the lowlands up in a place with a height of 2000 meters above sea level. Not all species of bamboo has edible bamboo shoots are delicious. Some species of bamboo shoots that have a bitter taste used to make cooking bamboo shoots, bamboo shoots is a choice.

Not all bamboo shoots can be processed into food. Bamboo type of smear (in Javanese language lear ping) is one of Janis bamboo that can not be processed into food, because it was bitter. Kind of shoots that taste delicious is yellow bamboo shoots, Rampal / flute, ori, and the ATER. Betung bamboo shoots have the most delicious flavor. Betung bamboo shoots and red brown corms (calyx end) at the end of the bamboo shoots are purple. Bamboo shoots are protected by the petals of a fluffy solid.


Potassium-rich

The main compounds in the crude bamboo shoot is water, which is about 91 percent. In addition, bamboo shoots contain protein, carbohydrates, fat, vitamin A, thiamin, riboflavin, vitamin C, as well as other minerals such as calcium, phosphorus, iron and potassium. When compared with other vegetables, proteins, fats and carbohydrates in the shoots, not much different.

Shoots have a high potassium content. Levels of potassium per 100 grams of bamboo shoots was 533 mg. Foods that are full of potassium, ie at least 400 mg, may reduce the risk of stroke. Role of potassium similar to sodium, which together with chloride, helps maintain osmotic pressure and acid-base balance. Potassium maintain osmotic pressure in intra-cellular fluids, and partially bound with the protein. Potassium also helps to activate the enzyme reaction. Symptoms of potassium deficiency is usually a softening of the muscle.


Fiber Rich

Dietary fiber content of bamboo shoots are also quite good at. Dietary fiber content in shoots was 2.56 percent, higher than other tropical crops such as soy bean sprouts (1.27 percent), pecay (1.58 percent), cucumbers (0.61 percent), and mustard greens (1, 01 per cent). Dietary fiber (dietary fiber) had long enough dabaikan as an important factor in human nutrition because it does not produce energy. In addition, the lack of fiber menimbufkan no specific symptoms, as was the case on the lack of certain nutrients.

Lately, through epidemiological studies have demonstrated the physiological role of dietary fiber against colon. Lack of fiber can cause disease in the style of Western societies, such as aterosklorosis (blood vessel blockage), coronary, diabetes mellitus (diabetes), hypercholesterolemia (excess cholesterol), hypertension, hyperlipidemia (excess fat), and cancers of the colon (large intestine).

Dietary fiber is a form of complex carbohydrate compounds tedapat on the cell wall of many food crops. Dietary fiber not digested and absorbed by the human digestive tract, but it has a function that is very important for health maintenance, disease prevention, and as an important component of nutrition therapy. Average consumption of dietary fiber Indonesian population is 10.5 grams per day. This figure shows that the population of Indonesia has only about a third fiber needs and the needs of the ideal of 30 grams each day.


So pickles, pickle, Flour, Vinegar, Chips

Although not yet have scientific proof most people believe that bamboo shoots have very useful properties for the body. In traditional medicine, believed the yellow bamboo shoots can be used to treat liver cirrhosis. Bamboo shoots have also been used to cure cough up phlegm and fever.

Bamboo shoots can be eaten as a vegetable alone or used as material mixing vegetables in other dishes. Many exotic cuisine prepared from bamboo shoots, such as: lumpia semarang, oseng-typical oseng Probolinggo, diamond Bojonegoro vegetable and coconut curry. Bamboo shoots are also commonly made into pickles or pickle made, which is very nice to be a snack.

Currently it can be processed bamboo shoots are for various curing ingredients. With technological advances, bamboo shoots can be processed into flour has shoots that have a high starch content. This type of flour for a cake made material. Bamboo shoots can also be processed into vinegar, which is very good for eating vinegar. Products processed bamboo shoots that have a bright future is: bamboo shoot chips that taste and texture is not lost with potato chips and frozen bamboo shoots as a material for vegetables.

Symptoms of Aneurysms

Symptoms of Aneurysms often not recognized,  The brain aneurysm that has not been broken in general symptoms are difficult to identify. In fact, the introduction of early symptoms is very important so that early treatment and not fatal.

The remark was made by Prof. Dr. Dr. Eka Julianta Wahjoepramono Sp BS, Saturday (17 / 4), the day was confirmed as a Professor of Neurosurgery in the field of Science Faculty of Medicine, University of Pelita Harapan. On that occasion, Prof. Eka read scientific papers "Neurosurgery: from the five senses to the sense of Maya, from the Brain Stem to Operation Giant Aneurysms."

Inaugural speech that explains the journey that previously relied neurosurgical senses merely to show a variety of sophisticated tools that make neurosurgery more developed. The event was attended by Prof. Peter Black's inauguration as President of the World Federation Neurosurgical Societies, the Harvard Medical School.

In his oration by Prof. Eka explained, is to inflate the artery aneurysms of the brain that can occur in any artery in the brain, especially on the branches and most occur in areas of existing willisi sirkulus arteriosus at the base of the skull. Inflate the blood brain that occurs because of muscle layers are not formed in the brain blood vessels so the walls become thin to be bloated due to boost blood flow in a long time. If the aneurysm ruptured, there was bleeding in the brain.

In a small patient symptoms can arise due to the pressure on the giant aneurysm, which is on neural structures in the vicinity. As many as 15-30 percent of patients with giant aneurysms rupture in his brain structure had early warning of some blood seepage from a brain aneurysm. The symptoms include severe headache accompanied by stiff neck.

Aneurysms that are not recognizable symptoms is very dangerous because it could happen again broke out. Broke the second time always result in more fatal and so on. Eka disclose, recognize signs of a mild outbreak of aneurysms while still very important to get the patient immediately on diagnosis and there is immediate action to prevent re-rupture. It is the duty of doctors to educate the neurosurgical community to recognize the signs and symptoms of a brain aneurysm rupture before so fatal.

Therapy to deal with a brain aneurysm usually by clipping or embolization procedures. Micro surgical clipping is aneurysm by clipping the neck so that the aneurysm was no longer teraliri blood from the parent blood vessel. Clamping level reaches 80-90 percent successful. While embolization is penyumpalan, or blockage of aneurysms. These procedures are done by doctors in Indonesia.

He said the handling of aneurysms is still very expensive, especially if patients present with severe conditions should be in the intensive care unit. "We, the doctors, attempt to provide assistance, such as freeing the patient is not capable of physician fees. However, if you've used the room in a hospital intensive care is very expensive because it can reach millions of rupiah per day, "he said. Availability of neurological surgeons also very limited.

Prof Black said, ideally with a neurosurgical physician ratio is the 1:250.000 population. However, in Indonesia, the ratio is still 1:2.000.000. (Ine)

Aspartame

Or the artificial sweetener aspartame, sweetener commonly found as an ingredient in some foods and drinks all around us. But many people did not know about negative side effects of aspartame that can not be underestimated with foods that contain formaldehyde.

Effective rid Insects

Try you purchased products or buy a famous snack of sweet drinks at the super market, continue to check the label, aspartame name will be listed there. In addition, health professionals also recommend aspartame as a safe sugar for diabetics. However, did you know that aspartame was effectively used as an ant poison.

Never happen, someone has a problem pest ants in the bathroom. Conscious of the effect of aspartame as a toxic chemical, one day she sprinkled aspartame in every corner of her bathroom. Apparently it worked. He did not see the ants in the bathroom again.

Aspartame is also effective to get rid of the red ant problem (usually does not work with a variety of toxins). It is no wonder if aspartame works like a poisonous insect, because the acid contained in asparctic toxic products have been proven to be exitotoxin that causes brain cells to die quickly, just as happened with the case had ants.


Destructive Effects on Humans Not Lose with Formalin

If this is an example of the negative effects of aspartame on the ants, the following is a discussion of experts about the negative effects of aspartame for humans is quite appalling and does not fail with the dangers of formaldehyde.

"Aspartame (NutraSweet), damage gradually and imperceptibly for the body and that is the reason why we should avoid it. Will be required one year, five, 10 or 40 years, but in the long term will show the changes that cause mild or severe disease. Aspartame has a profound effect on the mood of a person, anxiety, dizziness, panic, nausea, irritability, impaired concentration and ingatn. "Ralph Walton, MD

"I have been observing the problems of intellectual heavy damages in connection with the use of aspartame products. Usually manifest in difficulty reading and writing, difficulty remembering, often forget the time, place and even another person he had ever known. Many of the effects of aspartame is so serious, including seizures and death. Other effects are: headaches / migraines, dizziness, joint pain, nausea, numbness, muscle cramps, obesity, itching, depression, fatigue, irritability, tachycardia, insomnia, blindness, deafness, heart palpitations, shortness of breath, anxiety , impaired speaking, loss of sense of taste, ears buzzing, vertigo, and forgotten memories. "H. J. Roberts, M.D.

Aspartame

Aspartame atau pemanis buatan, biasa ditemukan sebagai bahan pemanis dalam beberapa makanan dan minuman di sekitar kita. Namun banyak orang belum mengetahui efek samping negatif dari aspartame yang tidak bisa disepelekan sama dengan makanan yang mengandung formalin.

Efektif Mengenyahkan Serangga

Coba Anda membeli produk makanan ringan terkenal atau membeli minuman yang manis rasanya di super market, terus perhatikan labelnya, akan tercantum nama aspartame di sana. Selain itu, para profesional kesehatan juga menganjurkan aspartame sebagai gula yang aman bagi penderita diabetes. Namun, tahukah Anda bahwa aspartame ternyata efektif digunakan sebagai racun semut.

Pernah terjadi, seseorang memiliki masalah hama semut di kamar mandinya. Sadar akan pengaruh aspartame sebagai bahan kimia yang beracun, suatu hari dia menaburkan aspartame di tiap pojok kamar mandinya. Ternyata usahanya berhasil. Dia tidak melihat semut-semut ada di kamar mandinya lagi.

Aspartame juga efektif untuk mengenyahkan masalah semut merah (biasanya tidak mempan dengan berbagai racun). Tidaklah heran jika aspartame bekerja bak racun serangga, karena asam asparctic yang terkandung dalam produk beracun telah terbukti bersifat exitotoxin yang menyebabkan sel-sel otak menjadi cepat mati, sama seperti yang terjadi dengan kasus semut-semut tadi.


Efek Merusak pada Manusia Tak Kalah dengan Formalin

Jika tadi adalah contoh efek negatif aspartame terhadap semut, berikut adalah penuturan para ahli mengenai efek negative aspartame bagi manusia yang cukup mengerikan dan tak kalah dengan bahayanya formalin.

Aspartame (NutraSweet) merusak secara pelan-pelan dan tak terasa bagi tubuh dan itulah alasan mengapa kita harus menghindarinya. Akan diperlukan satu tahun, lima, 10 atau 40 tahun, tapi dalam jangka panjang akan nampak perubahan yang menyebabkan penyakit ringan maupun berat. Aspartame punya efek yang mendalam pada mood seseorang, kecemasan, pusing, kepanikan, mual, iritabilitas, gangguan ingatn dan konsentrasi.” Ralph Walton, M.D

“Saya telah mengamati adanya masalah kerusakan intelektual yang berat sehubungan dengan penggunaan produk-produk aspartame. Biasanya bermanifestasi dalam susah membaca dan menulis, susah mengingat, sering lupa waktu, tempat bahkan orang lain yang pernah dia kenal. Banyak efek dari aspartame begitu serius termasuk kejang-kejang dan kematian. Efek lainnya yaitu: sakit kepala/migraine, pusing, sakit persendian, mual, mati rasa, kejang otot, kegemukan, gatal-gatal, depresi, kelelahan, lekas marah, tachycardia, insomnia, kebutaan, ketulian, jantung berdebar, sesak nafas, kecemasan, gangguan berbicara, kehilangan indra pengecap, telinga berdengung, vertigo, dan lupa ingatan.” H. J. Roberts, M.D.

Usefulness of coconut water

Get out of bed was not capable of Pure Irawati. Week 34 year old woman was huddled under a blanket because of the hot-cold, dizziness, nausea and eventually vomiting. Laboratory results showed, thrombocyte Pure Irawati just left 25.000/mm, away from the normal threshold of achieving 400.000/mm. He was positively diagnosed dengue fever (DHF).

Pure Irawati originally suspected he had a cold. 'Symptoms are exactly the people into the wind,' he said. Therefore, he swallowed the anti-cold tablets that many on the market. Unfortunately, health problems would not go as well. 7 September 1973-born women were even more dizziness and nausea. Pure pushed himself to the midwife at the house. Results of diagnosis, Pure typhoid symptoms that also marked a high fever. Any drug used to treat typhoid fever consumes 3 times daily.

Unfortunately, until a week later there was no significant change. Mother of one boy's condition even worse. 'I could not eat for every meal and then throw up,' he said. It makes the female body weight as high as 160 cm 20 kg was dropped a week just in time. Only 50 kg of body weight. Seeing his condition is alarming, Rudolf Ocean Pure Halomoan Hutagalung checked into the hospital in Srengseng Son Village, South Jakarta. Hospital doctors are also diagnosing typhoid Pure.

Since his condition did not improve, 3 days ago Pure returned to the hospital. At that time red spots appeared on his arm. Fine condition when it was weak and helpless. Blood tests showed that levels of platelet count only 47.000/mm. The doctor says positive Pure dengue fever. To receive intensive care, Pure was rushed to the Hospital Center of the Army (Army Hospital) Gatot Subroto, Central Jakarta. In that hospital room Pure lay together another dengue patient. At that moment, in July 2006 - was the middle of an epidemic of dengue virus.

Platelet Damage

Pure thrombocyte back sag, 25.000/mm, so the nurses gave intravenous fluids. According to dengue experts from Airlangga University Prof Dr H Soegeng Soegijanto, SpA (K), DTM & H, dengue virus into the human body against monocyte-one type of white blood cells that play a role to build the immune system. Viruses that are transmitted through the bite of Aedes aegypti was developed and released toxic substances that damage the capillary endothelial cells of blood vessels.

As a result of high vascular permeability, easy to leak, and fluid in the blood vessels easily exit into the surrounding connective tissue. Finally, dehydrate blood vessels so weak and dizzy patients. In addition to damaging endothelial cells, the virus also attacks the spinal cord. Platelet production function constrained its impact. Fair if the numbers continue to sag like Pure experience. The virus also directly damage the blood thrombocyte.

Supermini-sized platelet diameter of 4 milimikron-function in the process of blood clotting. If the thrombocyte concentration decreases, easy bleeding and even death. Provision of Ringer's lactate intravenous fluids to prevent fluid deficiency patients. Please understand, the blood of DHF patients lack many liquids. Electrolyte-rich fluids both to strengthen the cell so that the organs of the body is stronger and able to perform its function normally.

Increased Platelet levels in patients with DHF occurs through the formation of thrombocyte physiology natural methodology. That is, naturally make their own marrow Platelet if levels in the body is less. For patients with DHF usually on the day-to-6 antibody began to improve so that the thrombocyte concentration began to increase. The liquid electrolyte helps the circulation of blood and fluids that add cells and antibodies can function properly.

Coconut water

A week in hospital, condition improving Pure endless. He is always throwing up every time after eating. In-law who works as a nurse, Mery Silabuan, worrying about the Pure to Hartono Chong-herbalist in Jakarta. Hartono recommends that consume Pure coconut water to help cure dengue fever. Mery Hartono's advice.

'One day my purchase of 10 coconut water for Pure, "says Mery. In one day Pure drinking 10 glasses of coconut water. Every feeling thirsty, she drank water it Cocos nucifera. The results were encouraging because Platelet Pure continues to increase until 100.000/mm on day 4. Blood sampling performed every 8 hours. Three days after consumption of coconut water, Pure looks fitter. He was able to walk so the doctor let Pure home.

After arriving home, Pure still drinking coconut water with the same dose. Three days later, her blood checked again in accordance Pure doctor's advice. Pure Platelet normal result. According to Chong Hartono electrolyte-rich fluids for both cells and facilitate blood flow, thus reducing the risk of blood clots. Coconut water is also rich electrolyte materials. Addition of coconut water molecule is also more easily absorbed by the body. According to Revelation Suprapto herbalist from Malang, electrolytes and minerals, coconut water serves as a substitute for body fluid and improve immunity. Addition of coconut water as well as neutralizing poisons, so the condition of the body intact.

According to Prof. Dr. dr. H. Soegeng Soegijanto coconut water consumption should be added salt (NaCl). Because, coconut water contains a lot of potassium which relaxes the muscle including the heart muscle so that sufferers faint. With the addition of salt, potassium chloride binding. 'For a glass of coconut water should be added one-third teaspoon of salt alone,' DBD suggestions chairman of the Research Team's Airlangga University. Coconut water consumption is 1-1.5 l for patients with children; adults, 2 l per day.

Andi Nur Alam Shah, STP, MT Center researchers Pascapanen Agricultural Research and Development, reveals coconut milk contains protein, carbohydrate, amino acids and essential minerals for the body. Mineral components such as potassium, calcium, sodium, manganese, iron, and phosphorus. Twenty amino acids are also contained in them. Mineral composition of coconut water makes it uniquely suited as a natural isotonic drinks because the sugar composition of minerals and very perfect.

No wonder if the juice Palmae family member that functions as a substitute for the lost body fluids and thin the blood so that the flow is smooth. With the current flow caused by the rupture of blood vessels which thickens the blood can be prevented. That's what happened at the Pure. Initially doctors predict, Pure blood vessels would rupture if the conditions are increasingly saggy body. However, thanks to the coconut water consumption prediction did not happen.

Khasiat Air Kelapa.
Beranjak dari tempat tidur pun Murni Irawati tak mampu. Sepekan lamanya perempuan 34 tahun itu meringkuk di bawah selimut lantaran panas-dingin, pening, mual, dan akhirnya muntah. Hasil laboratorium menunjukkan, trombosit Murni Irawati cuma tersisa 25.000/mm, jauh dari ambang normal yang mencapai 400.000/mm. Ia positif mengidap demam berdarah dengue (DBD).

Semula Murni Irawati menduga ia masuk angin. 'Gejalanya persis orang masuk angin,' katanya. Oleh karena itu ia menelan tablet anti masuk angin yang banyak beredar di pasaran. Sayang, gangguan kesehatan itu tak juga pergi. Perempuan kelahiran 7 September 1973 itu malah kian pusing dan mual. Itu mendorong Murni memeriksakan diri ke bidan di dekat rumah. Hasil diagnosis, Murni mengalami gejala tifus yang juga ditandai demam tinggi. Obat untuk mengatasi tifus pun dikonsumsinya 3 kali sehari.

Sayang, hingga sepekan kemudian tak ada perubahan berarti. Kondisi ibu satu anak itu malah kian parah. 'Saya tidak bisa makan karena setiap makan lalu muntah,' katanya. Itu membuat bobot tubuh perempuan setinggi 160 cm itu anjlok 20 kg cuma dalam waktu sepekan. Bobot tubuhnya hanya 50 kg. Melihat kondisi istrinya yang mengkhawatirkan, Rudolf Samudra Halomoan Hutagalung memeriksakan Murni ke rumah sakit Desa Putra di Srengseng, Jakarta Selatan. Dokter rumah sakit itu juga mendiagnosis Murni tifus.

Karena kondisinya tak membaik, 3 hari berselang Murni kembali ke rumah sakit. Saat itu bintik merah muncul di lengannya. Kondisi Murni saat itu lemas dan tak berdaya. Hasil tes darah menunjukkan, kadar trombositnya hanya 47.000/mm. Dokter mengatakan Murni positif demam berdarah. Untuk mendapat perawatan intensif, Murni dilarikan ke Rumahsakit Pusat Angkatan Darat (RSPAD) Gatot Subroto, Jakarta Pusat. Di ruangan rumah sakit itu Murni berbaring bersama penderita demam berdarah lain. Saat itu -Juli 2006- virus dengue memang tengah mewabah.

Rusak trombosit

Trombosit Murni kembali melorot, 25.000/mm, sehingga perawat memberikan cairan infus. Menurut ahli DBD dari Universitas Airlangga Prof Dr dr H Soegeng Soegijanto, SpA(K), DTM & H, virus dengue yang masuk ke tubuh manusia menyerang monosit-salah satu tipe sel darah putih yang berperan membangun sistem kekebalan tubuh. Virus yang ditularkan melalui gigitan nyamuk Aedes aegypti itu berkembang dan mengeluarkan zat racun yang merusak sel endotel-sel kapiler pembuluh darah.

Akibatnya permeabilitas pembuluh darah tinggi, mudah bocor, dan cairan dalam pembuluh darah mudah keluar ke jaringan ikat di sekitarnya. Akhirnya, pembuluh darah kekurangan cairan sehingga penderita lemas dan pusing. Selain merusak sel endotel, virus juga menyerang sumsum tulang belakang. Dampaknya fungsi produksi trombosit terhambat. Wajar jika jumlahnya terus melorot seperti dialami Murni. Virus juga merusak langsung trombosit darah.

Trombosit yang berukuran supermini-diameter 4 milimikron-berfungsi dalam proses pembekuan darah. Jika kadar trombosit berkurang, mudah terjadi pendarahan, bahkan kematian. Pemberian cairan ringer laktat melalui infus untuk mencegah pasien kekurangan cairan. Harap mafhum, darah penderita DBD banyak kekurangan cairan. Cairan kaya elektrolit baik untuk memperkuat sel sehingga organ-organ tubuh lebih kuat dan bisa menjalankan fungsinya secara normal.

Peningkatan kadar trombosit pada pasien DBD terjadi melalui metodologi alami fisiologi pembentukan trombosit. Artinya, sumsum secara alami membuat sendiri trombosit jika kadar dalam tubuh kurang. Bagi penderita DBD biasanya pada hari ke-6 antibodi mulai membaik sehingga kadar trombosit pun mulai meningkat. Cairan elektrolit membantu memperlancar peredaran darah dan menambah cairan sehingga sel dan antibodi dapat berfungsi baik.

Air kelapa

Sepekan dirawat di rumah sakit, kondisi Murni tak kunjung membaik. Ia selalu muntah setiap kali habis makan. Mertuanya yang berprofesi sebagai perawat, Mery Silabuan, mencemaskan Murni kepada Hartono Chong -herbalis di Jakata. Hartono menyarankan agar Murni mengkonsumsi air kelapa untuk membantu penyembuhan demam berdarah. Mery menuruti saran Hartono.

'Sehari saya beli air dari 10 kelapa untuk Murni,' kata Mery. Dalam sehari Murni minum 10 gelas air kelapa muda. Setiap merasa haus, ia meneguk air Cocos nucifera itu. Hasilnya sungguh menggembirakan lantaran trombosit Murni terus meningkat hingga 100.000/mm pada hari ke-4. Pengambilan contoh darah dilakukan setiap 8 jam. Tiga hari pasca konsumsi air kelapa, Murni tampak bugar. Ia mampu berjalan sehingga dokter mengizinkan Murni pulang.

Setelah tiba di rumah, Murni tetap minum air kelapa dengan dosis sama. Tiga hari kemudian, Murni kembali memeriksakan darahnya sesuai saran dokter. Hasilnya trombosit Murni normal. Menurut Hartono Chong cairan kaya elektrolit baik untuk sel dan memperlancar aliran darah, sehingga mengurangi risiko penggumpalan darah. Air kelapa juga kaya bahan elektrolit. Selain itu molekul air kelapa juga lebih mudah diserap tubuh. Menurut Wahyu Suprapto herbalis dari Malang, elektrolit dan mineral air kelapa berfungsi sebagai pengganti cairan tubuh dan meningkatkan kekebalan tubuh. Selain itu air kelapa juga sebagai penetralisir racun sehingga kondisi tubuh terjaga.

Menurut Prof. Dr. dr. H. Soegeng Soegijanto konsumsi air kelapa sebaiknya ditambah garam (NaCl). Sebab, air kelapa banyak mengandung kalium yang melemaskan otot termasuk otot jantung sehingga penderita lemas. Dengan penambahan garam, kalium berikatan dengan klorida. 'Untuk segelas air kelapa sebaiknya ditambahkan garam sepertiga sendok teh saja,' saran ketua Tim Peneliti DBD Universitas Airlangga itu. Konsumsi air kelapa cukup 1-1,5 l untuk pasien anak-anak; dewasa, 2 l per hari.

Andi Nur Alam Syah, STP, MT peneliti Balai Besar Penelitian dan Pengembangan Pascapanen Pertanian, mengungkapkan air kelapa mengandung protein, karbohidrat, asam amino dan mineral penting untuk tubuh. Komponen mineralnya antara lain kalium, kalsium, natrium, mangan, zat besi, dan fosfor. Dua puluh asam amino juga terkandung di dalamnya. Komposisi mineral air kelapa yang unik membuatnya cocok sebagai minuman isotonik alami lantaran komposisi mineral dan gulanya amat sempurna.

Pantas bila air buah anggota famili Palmae itu berfungsi sebagai pengganti cairan tubuh yang hilang dan mengencerkan darah sehingga alirannya lancar. Dengan aliran lancar maka pecahnya pembuluh darah akibat darah yang mengental dapat dicegah. Itulah yang terjadi pada Murni. Semula dokter memprediksi, pembuluh darah Murni bakal pecah jika kondisi tubuh kian melorot. Namun, berkat konsumsi air kelapa prediksi itu tak terjadi.

Women who take a multivitamin each day has the potential breast cancer. According to a study conducted more than ten years to 35 thousand women by the research team Karolinska Institute, Sweden, published in the journal The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.

The discovery shook the Australian health industry continues to insist that a multivitamin consumers not to panic. In that study, the researchers found that those who regularly mengononsumsi multivitamin pill increases the risk of tumor growth up to 19 percent.

Results of this study, as quoted from page news.com.au, Sunday, April 18th, 2010, extremely worrying and requires further investigation. Many women actually consume multivitamin supplements in the belief it could prevent chronic diseases such as cancer.

Biologically, these opinions can be explained thus. Vitamin and mineral supplements significantly increase the density or the density of breast tissue which is a high risk factor for breast cancer triggers. Folic acid, which is often contained in multivitamins in solid form, is also able to enhance tumor growth.

The discovery of these Swedish researchers welcomed the Australian health experts with interest and alertness. Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women in Australia idap. More than 12 thousand women in Australia diagnosed malignant tumor that killed more than 2,700 women each year. One in nine women in the "Land Kangaroo" will be in the diagnosis of this deadly disease at the age of 85 years.

"Results from this prospective study revealed that use of multivitamins may increase the risk of breast cancer," said research team leader, Susanna Larrson.

Multivitamins including big business in Australia. The leading manufacturer of multivitamins, Blackmores, even made a profit of A $ 30.6 million before taxes for the fiscal year last year. A number of nutrition and diet experts have asserted that the supplement is not necessary because the human body more easily absorb nutrients from food than from supplements.

Garlic and a variety of properties


Bawang Putih dan berbagai Khasiatnya
Dalam masyarakat modern bawang putih (Allium sativum) dipercaya dapat mencegah serangan jantung, penggumpalan darah, menurunkan kadar kolesterol, tekanan darah, kadar gula darah, mengurangi tukak lambung, penawar racun, pembunuh bakteri/jamur/parasit, pengikat radikal bebas, dan banyak lagi yang lain. Benarkah bumbu masakan sehari-hari ini dapat menyembuhkan kanker juga?

Berbagai studi memang menunjukkan kemampuan bawang putih dalam mencegah dan mengobati kanker, terutama yang disebabkan oleh bahan-bahan kimia berbahaya, seperti kanker prostat, perut, kolorektal (usus dan dubur), payudara, liver, kulit, dan paru-paru.


Bawang Putih Melawan Kanker
Zat-zat aktif dalam bawang putih antara lain vitamin A, B, C, kalsium, potasium, besi, karoten, dan selenium. Yang paling dominan dalam memerangi kanker adalah komponen allyl sulfur seperti diallyl sulfide, diallyl disulfide, diallyl trisulfide, S-allyl cysteine, S-allylmercaptocysteine, allicin, dan ajoene. Zat-zat tersebut mencegah pembentukan dan pengaktifan nitrosamin di dalam tubuh, juga memblokir aflatoxin, azoxymethane, benzo(a)pyrene, dan lain-lain, yang kesemuanya merupakan zat karsinogen (pemicu kanker).
Pada tahap berikutnya komponen-komponen tersebut dapat mencegah mutasi gen, menghambat proliferasi (pertumbuhan/pembelahan) sel-sel kanker, memperbaiki struktur DNA yang rusak, bahkan merangsang sel kanker untuk bunuh diri (apoptosis).

Di sisi lain bawang putih juga berperan sebagai antioksidan, mengeluarkan racun dari dalam tubuh, dan membunuh kuman Helicobacter pylori yang dapat memicu berbagai macam kanker perut.


Cara Mengkonsumsi
Sudah tentu kerja zat-zat aktif bawang putih itu tergantung pada banyak hal, misalnya tanah di mana bawang putih itu tumbuh (berpengaruh pada kadar zat-zat aktif bawang putih), komposisi zat makanan lain yang dikonsumsi bersamaan dengannya, juga cara mempersiapkan dan mengkonsumsi bawang putih itu sendiri. Kombinasi dengan selenium, asam lemak tertentu (misal asam linoleat), dan vitamin A, dapat meningkatkan kemampuan bawang putih untuk menghambat proliferasi dan meningkatkan apoptosis.

Tetapi perlu disadari bahwa proses pengolahan bawang putih dapat mematikan daya kerja zat-zat antikanker itu. Satu menit saja diproses dalam microwave, hilanglah khasiat bawang putih sebagai antikanker. Begitu juga kalau dipanaskan dalam proses pemasakan lain. Jadi bagaimana? Haruskah bawang putih itu ditelan mentah-mentah?

Ternyata sederhana saja. Hancurkan bawang putih (digeprak, diiris tipis, atau diuleg) kemudian biarkan selama 15 menit sebelum dimasak (digunakan sebagai bumbu masak). Dalam waktu 15 menit itu terjadi reaksi kimia yang mengaktifkan zat-zat antikanker golongan allyl sulfur di atas, yang tidak rusak walau dimasak. Tetapi kalau setelah dihancurkan langsung dimasak, reaksi kimia itu tidak terjadi, otomatis khasiat antikankernya hilang.

Kalau mau, bawang putih juga boleh dikonsumsi mentah. Tapi tetap saja harus dihancurkan dulu dan dibiarkan selama 15 menit. Lalu bagaimana kalau bawang akan disajikan utuh, misalnya dalam acar? Cukup kupas kemudian potong sedikit ujung-ujungnya. Lumayan, masih memiliki khasiat antikanker walau tidak sebagus kalau dihancurkan.


Potensi Bahaya
Mudah sekali bukan, menggunakan bawang putih untuk pencegahan dan pengobatan kanker? Harganya murah dan mudah didapat pula. Tetapi waspadalah, bukan berarti bawang putih boleh dikonsumsi sembarangan. Jangan mengira bahwa semakin banyak mengkonsumsi bawang putih semakin baik hasilnya.

Dosis yang disarankan untuk konsumsi bawang putih adalah 4-5 gram bawang putih segar/hari (kira-kira 1-2 siung). Kalau terlalu banyak, selain menimbulkan bau tidak sedap pada nafas dan kulit, kadang menimbulkan alergi, gangguan pencernaan (muntah, diare, iritasi, produksi gas berlebihan), asma bronkial, dermatitis, mengurangi kadar protein dan kalsium dalam darah, juga mengurangi produksi sperma.

Terlalu banyak bawang putih meningkatkan resiko perdarahan karena kemampuannya dalam mencegah pembekuan darah. Karena itu pada penderita yang hendak atau baru saja menjalani pembedahan, konsumsi bawang putih sebaiknya dibatasi.

Bawang putih juga meningkatkan kerja enzim-enzim dalam hati untuk membuang racun dari dalam tubuh. Pada orang sehat kemampuan ini sangat bermanfaat, tetapi hati-hatilah, dia juga bisa membuang obat-obat yang Anda telan dan obat-obat kemoterapi . Pengobatan Anda menjadi sia-sia, bukan? Karena itu, kalau Anda ingin menambah konsumsi bawang putih atau menggunakan produk suplemennya, konsultasilah dulu dengan dokter.

Preventing and Overcoming naturally Gall Stones ( Batu Empedu)


Gallbladder is a small pear-shaped organ located in right abdomen, and hidden beneath the liver. Gall bladder stores bile produced by the liver. During the meal, bladder bile will be contracted (shrunk) so spend a little liquid brownish-green bile into the small intestine. Bile useful in the absorption of fat and some vitamins, like vitamin A, D, E and K. Bile is a mixture of bile acids, proteins, calcium salts, pigments and substances called fatty cholesterol. Some of bile entering the small intestine and is passed excreted in feces.

The main disorders that can arise in the gallbladder is the formation of stone. This can also occur in the bile ducts. Gallstone caused by chemical changes in the bile someone. Stone Bile is formed from the deposition of cholesterol, bilirubin pigments and salts calcium that hardens, but most of the gall-bladder stones formed
of cholesterol. Incidence of gallstones would be a problem when entering to one of the channels leading to the small intestine. Sometimes stones can form in the bile duct itself, for example, because the former
stitches in an operation.

In the gallbladder, the stones can cause inflammation, which is called kolestitis acute, it is because of the broken stones in the bile bile ducts that causes pain. Stones through can be related to the gallbladder in the liver and bile ducts, thus stopping the flow of bile into the digestive tract. In Besides, there are other factors that start the process gallstone formation. These elements can be contained protein liquid formed at the gall bladder mucus in small quantities. Case This allows cholesterol, bilirubin, and calcium salts to form particles such as crystalline solid. Forms from a variety of gallstones, ie rock formed from cholesterol and shiny yellow
such as oil, which consists of stone can be colored pigment bilirubin but black or dark brown hard but brittle. The size is also varies from small pebbles up to registration, but average diameter of 1 to 2 cm.

Although gallbladder disease show no symptoms, the circumstances worsening of symptoms is usually caused by an attack at mealtimes food containing high fat, if a person already suffering from the rock
bile. This occurs because fat triggers the hormone stimulates gall bladder to contract forcing the stored bile into the duodenum which is the way out to the small intestine, if the stone inhibit bile flow will occur with acute symptoms such as pain at the upper right abdomen and towards the back, between shoulder and
to the front chest. Other symptoms of colic, belching, flatulence, indigestion, sweating, nausea, vomiting, chills, body temperature somewhat high, jaundice (when gallstones block the channel bile), and feces are brown.

Gallbladder stone disease and usually attacks the bile ducts people aged between 20 - 50 years. The disease is 6 times more often occurs in women until age 50 years. On top of that age same for both sexes. In addition, women who experience more than 2 times of pregnancy, the risk of getting gallstones more
high. Obesity / overweight has more risk of suffering from gallstones high compared with those not obese. Several efforts preventing the formation of gallstones that can be achieved among other things keep your weight in order to stay normal, lowers cholesterol, and consume foods that contain lots of fiber. But on the other hand, hard diet to lose weight quickly can stimulate liver to remove cholesterol in large quantities into the liquid bile, which can cause gallstones.

To find out if our bodies have used a gallstone gallstones detector, called ultrasound, namely by uses sound waves that can not hear the ear. Wave This sound is directed to the body and reflected waves then processed computers that will indicate the presence or absence of gallstones. Moreover gallstones can be detected through X-rays and blood tests in the laboratory.

For patients with gallstones, the main principle of treatment is resting gallbladder. Avoid fatty foods because fat stimulates the gallbladder to work hard. Protein content in adequate diet from 1 to 1 ½ grams per body weight per day. Calories should also limited, because most patients with gallstones are also patients
obesity. Raw foods can also cause indigestion should be avoided.

Natural way that can be used to overcome the gallstones are:

30 grams of fresh leaves nasty shard + 30 grams + 60 grams of fresh bitter
boiled corn with the remaining 600 cc to 300 cc of water, the water
filtered, drunk warm.

60 grams of fresh herbs cat's whiskers + 30 grams + 30 grams of corn cob leaves
meniran fresh boiled with water until the remaining 600 cc 300 cc, water
filtered, drunk warm.

30 grams of fresh leaf spoon + 30 grams of fresh leaves of four o'clock flowers + 100
gram grass roots boiled with water until the remaining 700 ccc 300 cc,
filtered water, drunk warm.

Drink as much as 4 cups of apple juice every day for 5 days. On the day
6th do fasting, and at the breaking of the fast white water + 30
English grams of salt, at 20:00 o'clock drink ½ cup lemon juice + ½ cup
olive oil, stir then drink.
Note: you can use either the traditional way on top, do regularly 2 times a day. In doing boiling use enamel pan or pot soil. Fixed a doctor.
