In his medical practice, Avicenna widely applied the lemon to reduce toxicosis in pregnant women. He believed that lemon is a powerful means that reduces sexual arousal in the woman (lemon reduces passion and “returns from hell” – he wrote.) Based on lemon juice, Avicenna made a recipe for a cure for treating gonorrhea. If you don’t want to get pregnant, Avicenna advised, you should put small fleshy pieces of lemon in the vagina, and this should not be applied for a long time (more than 2 – 3 weeks). Then another contraceptive should be selected.
Another plant that is useful for women is the potato. The diverse composition of vitamins, many mineral compounds, a wide range of proteins, carbohydrates, and ferments, proves that mankind is only now beginning to draw on the healing possibilities of potatoes. The potato has gone through a rich school for people’s use before becoming a diet food product and a means of preventing a whole range of diseases.
