    When there is a problem like dysentery in kids betal leaves are washed and crushed to get the juice without adding more water.Then this juice is mixed with equal amount of honey and the mixture should be given atleast four or five times a day.It stops diarrhea without any side effects in kids.Betal leaves along with betal nuts are really good for health.But when it is consumed with tobacco, it loses all its properties and starts affecting the body.
