Grow plants that are good for you on your balcony. Our bodies and health are in danger when we work long hours, eat poorly, don’t get enough sleep, or are under a lot of stress. Diabetes, being overweight, thyroid problems, arthritis, and heart disease are all linked and can only be stopped by eating healthy food. Greens, vegetables, fruits, and nuts are all great ways to get the vitamins, minerals, fiber, and water your body needs. Green herbs, in particular, can help with a lot of health problems and protect you from health problems that are about to happen. You can easily grow these medicinal plants on your balcony instead of going out to buy them. There are many good reasons to grow and eat them every day.
One of the easiest things you can do is to grow methi in a pot. Find a sunny spot, plant the seeds in a pot, and give it water. Methi seeds sprout in a few days, and 10 to 15 days after that, the leaves grow and the pods are ready to pick. If the weather is too cold, methi might not be able to grow.
All people with diabetes eat methi leaves or fenugreek seeds to keep their blood sugar levels from going up and down. A naturally soluble fiber called galactomannan is very important for controlling diabetes because it slows down the rate at which sugar is absorbed into the bloodstream. If you eat methi leaves and seeds regularly, you can fix chronic digestive problems, acid reflux, heartburn, dandruff, and hair loss.
Bitter gourd (Karela):
Another miracle vegetable with a taste that is very different from other vegetables. Karela is an easy plant to grow if you can set up a small trellis on your balcony. This is because it grows like a vine. It grows best in warm weather, but it can also grow in the mild cold. Soak the seeds in warm water for a few hours before planting them. This process helps seeds sprout faster and makes them stronger.
Many people don’t like bitter gourd because it tastes bitter, but the good things it has are hard to explain. Bitter gourd can help you lose weight and keep your blood sugar in check. Regular use can also improve your vision, clean your liver and kidneys, and make your immune system stronger. But keep in mind that too much can make you sick to your stomach and throw off your hormones.
Dhaniya pattha (coriander):
Pick up a few dhania seeds from your kitchen, split them in half, sow them in a container, and put them in a sunny spot on your balcony. Your coriander crop will be ready in a week! It really is as simple as this. The only thing coriander plants need to grow is a lot of sunlight. If your balcony gets a lot of it, then go for it.
Coriander leaves fight bad cholesterol and raise good cholesterol levels, which is good for your health. Coriander can help people with diabetes keep their blood sugar levels in check by eating it regularly. The leaves and seeds are full of iron, which makes the bone marrow work better and helps women with anemia.
This herb can treat a wide range of health problems and can be found in almost every Indian home. The best way to grow basil is to plant seeds right in a pot. Always keep the soil moist by giving the seedlings water on a regular basis. It is an annual crop that keeps making leaves all year long.
