Tiny limes are my go-to remedy these days

in esteem •  10 months ago  (edited)

Here are some tiny and very sour and pungent limes that are very cheap in Malaysia. I get them for maybe $1.50 USD per kilo. That's a lot of limes, but I will have no trouble going through them before they go bad.


Limes are my Vitamin C source while in Malaysia. I pour the juice on almost every thing I eat.

Today I am making lime and ginger tea to try to break this edema that is not wanting to leave my body.

I cut all of the limes in half and will squeeze them by hand. They are extremely soft, so I can do this trick without hurting my arthritic hands.

The plate is propped up by my laptop and I painstakingly picked out all the seeds.

It's hard to tell, but that is a lot of juice. I will get maybe 6 tablespoons out of it.


You can see the ginger I have cut, the many seeds and the waste from the limes. I really should dry the rind and eat it in some way, as the vitamins there are very strong.


I'll boil water, put the ginger in a cup with it and then let that sit until the water is cool. Then I will add a LOT of lime juice and sometimes raw honey.

This is supposed to get me to pee shortly, but sadly has not been working. I'm drinking two to three cups a day now and less than one cup comes out.

My friend @iamjadeline contacted the local clinic right outside my condo gate today. It turns out a consultation will be 30 RM - $7.50 USD.

Yes, I said seven dollars and fifty cents to see a doctor within walking distance of here.

I will go tomorrow. My natural methods have been tried for weeks and I am barely improved. A few diuretics is a next step I hope. The prescription for them will be inexpensive too.

I really need this illness to end so I can get back on track 20 hours a day in bed, exercise, elevating my feet, tight clothing, and lots of liquids have not worked, so hopefully this nice Malaysian doctor will.

I used my HMNOTE 1LTE mobile phone for these photos.
