Cumin – I’m In – Finally

Cumin smells like human male underarm perspiration to me. Makes me wonder why.

Does that mean it has testosteronic properties?

Or did I make that connection between sweat and cumin by being around people from India who eat a lot of cumin? And the odor comes out their sweat glands.

I said a while back I was going to try a teaspoon a day of ground cumin for weight loss, but then forgot about it during the chaos of the COVID 19 pandemic. Now I’ve been reacquainted with it, this time for a bunch of symptoms related to long COVID mainly the severe fatigue associated from vasculitis caused by the supercharged fourth booster by Pfizer Biopharmaceuticals. I’m also in withdrawal from the steroids I was given to treat the vasculitis that most call COVID rash. Today is my first day taking it. 

  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin seed with 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper mixed in a very small bullet (metal ramekin).

While researching cumin I picked up some bits of interesting benefits:

Weight loss
