Today numerous laboratory tests and a number of clinical trials support its use by demonstrating that hawthorn leaves, flowers, and fruits contain chemical compounds that increase blood flow to the heart muscle, as well as positively affect other aspects of cardiovascular health. Hawthorn has been used successfully for angina pectoris, functional heart disease, arrhythmia, early manifestations of circulatory insufficiency, and as a heart tonic to regulate circulation. Hawthorn is safe for long-term use and needs to be taken over a period of several months to achieve results.
Hawthorn should not be given to children. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, do not use hawthorn.

As we become truly satisfied with what Allah has made lawful for us, most of our problems cease to exist. Petty jealousies are eliminated, and we lose the desire to covet things which are not ours. We gain peace in our lives. Satisfaction with whatever we are blessed with keeps us from living outside our means. Contentment encourages one to embody humility and modesty, two essential traits of a Muslim. The above plea to be pleased with the straight path is particularly pertinent to the subject matter of this blog because it offers protection from the desire to follow the ignorant trends we see being aggressively pushed in the “natural health” community. It reminds us to be comfortable and secure, understanding that How to Eat to Live is sufficient. In fact, it is superior to any innovations that popular "gurus" have to offer us. This prayer develops a pristine desire to submit to our dietary law in a perfect manner, or as closely as we possibly can.
