Isaiah 38:21  Then Isaiah said, “Bring a poultice of figs and apply it to the boil for his recovery." Although traditionally used to treat boils, this sweet fruit from the mulberry family of the ficus tree -- one of the world's oldest trees -- is full of vitamins, minerals, and soluble fiber. Figs are considered great for healthy digestion, as a natural laxative, and for staving off hunger. Thanks to its high calcium count it's also beneficial for healthy bones.
