?Excess Safra (yellow bile):

? How to cure:
? reducing Safra type of foods (warm and dry, such as spicy foods).
? Hijamah in the third week of the lunar month
? if it is chronic and severe pain, then the following combination should be used for 40 to 80 nights before sleeping:
1 cup of fresh milk + 2 tablespoons of Senjed (Farsi name) + 2 tablespoons of honey
?This formula has the power to reform such joint pain

? Excess Balqam (mucus):
This type is very common among women and those who have excess balqam.
The reason is due to accumulation of balqam in the joints, though it mostly settles in the knees. The knees may be swollen and cause severe pain.
