For myself The most interesting thing about the medicinal properties of bananas is It is used as a medicine for gastric ulcer and colic distension.
Thai herbal texts indicate that Kluai Nam Wa can be used to make medicine, both raw and ripe, especially raw bananas contain tannins, astringent substances that can inhibit the growth of bacteria very well. Thus helping to protect the stomach and intestinal wall from germs and spicy food such as chili to destroy the intestinal tissue wall. It helps to cure diarrhea as well.

How to eat bananas as a real medicine to treat the symptoms of gastritis is a difficult process. Beginning with sliced raw bananas, they are dried in the hot sun or dried at 50 degrees Celsius.
Never use higher heat. Because if using high heat Substances in bananas that have therapeutic effects of gastritis are lost. Or suddenly lose power
I have been suffering from gastroenteritis. Would not be damaged to take himself as a drug test rodent So I arranged to make herbal medicine, mashed banana powder and eat by myself.
Let’s start by going to find a bunch of raw bananas that are very old, peeled, cut off the glasses, sun-dried.
The tricky process is cutting some glasses. Because raw bananas have sticky rubber on the hand, stuck to the knife Quite difficult to do It takes a really high patience.
Cut bananas if they are not the same size, they will have problems when exposed to the sun. Is that it will not dry the same When crushed or pounded, the fineness will be uneven. There are both thin and sticky parts.
I made banana powder on a very sunny day. Because I don’t want to bake bananas at all Fear of losing the medicinal properties and vitamins. Go with the heat Even with only 50 degrees Celsius, it wasted a lot of time cutting a whole banana comb. I remember it was over for hours.
After that, they are placed in a tray. Not allowing each piece to overlap In order to be exposed to the full sun It takes a few hours to dry. Around noon until three o’clock in the afternoon, it is completely dry.
When looking at the banana plate Saw that it was dry, then took it and pounded it with a stone mortar.
You, this time, it is very suffering to grind bananas into fine powder, have to pound, sift, and then remove the remaining pulp and pound again. Over and over again Many times, many times to finally get the powder out.
And only learned later that Among many well-known traditional herbal producers He has made ready-made banana powder packaged in sachets and sold widely.
Manufacturing process when it is an industry It should be mainly used in baking and ground into powder with a grinder. Not the traditional pounding of mortars like I do.
The finished raw banana powder, as seen, is sold for drinking, 20 sachets per box, 10 grams per box, about 95 baht per box, sold in herbal drug stores. Including those sold through online stores on various websites.
How to use is not complicated. Just dissolve the banana powder with hot water. Or you can add honey as well. Eat 3 times a day before meals.
I have to admit that the homemade banana powder pill really works according to its properties. Although it does not cure stomach disease symptoms completely But it helped alleviate the symptoms by more than half Making us not have to rely too much on prescription drugs.
