  2. Hi Priya ... Really appreciate..... Just a little comment.... As all the leaves mostly put together ... All seems same... Maybe displaying just one leave or maybe a stalk .. would be helpful.... As I don't recognize most of the leaves.... But I would love to learn...

    1. Thanks a lot, can u pls click on the image for larger view. I will surely take your suggestion and update soon.

  3. I love you darling,This is the first time saying this.if you mention the benefits then it would be very useful.

    I want to add one thing..I am suffering by Ulcer and extreme breathe issue.

    After taking the pasialai keerai kolambu with inji,sombu,poondu,siru vengayam and kothamalli thalai,karuveppilai now the problem is resolved within one day.

    It's almost cured.i feel now very good and the problem of breath issue reduced from 90% to 2%.

    I hope if i eat the same keerai agaik for next one week all the issues will go out.

    Planned to take daily one keerai in two times morning and noon timings.

    I suggest everyone to do the same and live healthy.

    Now I realised lot money ia not life ,live healthier is life.

    Thanks for reading this.
