The hard walnut shell is actually well known for its healing properties especially helpful as side care for duodenal and gastric ulcer, cough, and to clear cysts and tumors and other tumor formations.
Here's a simple recipe or how to use the walnuts' hard shells:
- Clip 6 Walnuts and remove the thin inner parts, which separate the nuts under the cap
- Fill only them with half a liter of boiling water
- Leave the container for a while until the water removes the beneficial substances from the non-corrosive internal parts of the walnuts
- Once completely cooled, strain and add 100 ml of milk
Drink three sips of the prepared mixture before going to sleep. Drink this amount half an hour before every meal every day, until the prepared amount is gone. People, who admitted for 14 days from the opening, claim that they have cured their stomach ulcers.
The hard walnut shells are also used in treatment of cysts:
- Wash and crush 14 walnuts
- Separate the nuts from the shells and crush the shells up to a flour textured mix
- Mix the fine crushed shells flour with half a liter of vodka (for countries like Bulgaria, most commonly the alcohol used for this recipe is Raki or Grappa)
- Leave for 21 days in a dark dry place in a closed glass container
Take one tablespoon ten minutes before sleeping, or in the morning half an hour before your first meal which will clear the malignant formations in your body – this is an old recipe that passed the test of time thru generations.
