Aloha Authentic: Meaning, History of Nioi Place


THERE AS EXCELLENT OR ABOVE AVERAGE. HAVE YOU EVER DRIVEN ON A ROAD THROUGHOUT HAWAI’I AND WONDERED, HOW DID THAT STREET GET ITS NAMING IN THAT’S WHY WE HAVE EVERY THURSDAY, OUR ALOHA THAT QUESTION AND SHARE STORIES BEHIND OUR ISLAND STREET NAPLESS. THIS MONTH WE’LL VISIT STREET HIGHLIGHTING PLANTS WITHIN OUR MEDICINE. THIS WEEK WE VISIT A STREET NAMED AFTER THE BELOVED CHILI PEPPER. ON THE SOUTHERN PORTION OF OAHU IN PA PALOLO STANDS A STREET GROSS A PLANT. NIO REFERS TO CHILI PEPPER. NIO PLACE SHARES LOTS OF INFORMATION. THE NIO HOLDS MEDICINAL I LEARNED FROM, THE HEAT CHEAPS TO INCREASE THE OXYGEN FLOW WITHIN THE BODY AND CANCER CELLS HAVE A HARD TIME GROWING. TO HELP COMBAT AILMENTS SUCH AS CANCER, NIO IS USED MOST FREQUENT. OTHER THINGS NIO IS USED FOR INCLUDES BLOOD CIRCULATION, DEPRESSION, FATIGUE, BLEEDING, HEADACHES, EYE PROBLEMS, HEART ATTACKS, STROKES, MENSTRUAL CRAMPS ALLERGIES HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE TO NAME A FEW. DID YOU KNOW? NOW YOU DO. Kristine: I DID KNOW. I’M KIDDING. I DIDN’T KNOW. BUT VERY INTERESTING. WHAT IS THE HOTTEST PART OF THE CHILI PEPPER? HOTTEST PART IS THE INSIDE SURROUNDING THE SEEDS. Kristine: YOU TALKED ABOUT ALL THESE DIFFERENT AILMENTS. YOU MENTIONED SOMETHING ABOUT THE EYE. EYE PROBLEMS. PUTTING THIS OUT THERE. MAKE SURE YOU SEEK ADVICE OR RECOMMENDATIONS FROM SOMEBODY ELSE. ONE THING I’VE DONE IS TO HELP WITH NEARSIGHTEDNESS AND FAR SIGHT EDNESS, WE MAKE AN EYE DROVE. HALF A CHILI PEPPER AND KUKAIPUAA, ITCHY CRABGRASS I THINK IS WHAT IT’S CALLED. WE GRAB THAT, MIX IT, BLEND IT, STRAIN IT AND PUT IT IN AN IT HELPS TO FLUSH THE TOXINS OUT OF YOUR EYE AND YOU WAKE UP WITH CONSTRUCTIONY THINGS OVER YOUR EYE. AND THAT PROVES HOW IT FLUSHES EVERYTHING TO HELP IT BRING BACK THE VIBRANCY. YOU’RE TOLD NOT TO RUB YOUR EYE AFTER YOU TOUCH CHILI PEPPER. MY PARENTS ARE FREAKING OUT. BUT ON A PERSONAL EXPERIENCES, IT DOES HELP A LOT WITH THE VIBRANCY OF YOUR SIGHT. Kristine: NIO, THERE’S THE LINE OVER THE FIRST I. THAT LINE IS KNOWN AS A KHKAKOU. THAT PROLONGS THE SOUND IT’S LINE GOES OVER. THAT CAN CHANGE THE MEANING OF THE WORLD. BUT THERE’S ALSO THE OTHER CHARACTER KNOWN AS THE OKINA, A BACKWARDS APOSTROPHE. THAT COULD CHANGE THE MEANING OF THE WORD. Kristine: THAT’S WHY YOU PRONOUNCE IT NIO. MORE ABOUT THIS TYPE OF HAWAIIAN MEDICINE, WHERE CAN WE GET MORE INFO? UNIVERSITY OF HAWAI’I. THAT’S WHERE I ATTENDED CLASSES. I ALSO ATTENDED AT WINDWARD COMMUNITY COLLEGE. IT’S THROUGHOUT THE SYSTEM. I’M NOT SURE WHAT CAMPUSES. CHECK OUT THE UNIVERSITY OF HAWAI’I WEBSITE. LAST WEEK BUT I HEARD YOU LAUNCHED A NEW SERVICE. THAT ARE PUTTING OUT COMMERCIALS, ADVERTISEMENTS, AAUTHENTIC URGES TO SAY THE APPROPRIATE AND RIGHT PRONUNCIATION OF HAWAIIAN WORDS AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE.
