Understanding Allergies in Ayurveda

What does Ayurveda say about Allergies?

Written and Researched by Dr V.D Singh

The immune system is the defence mechanism of your body against certain bacteria, viruses etc. which may harm you. But sometimes when this defense mechanism starts fighting with the substances with which it shouldn’t, the condition is called Allergy. Such substances, found in dust mites, animal dander, pollen, insects, ticks, moulds, foods, some medicines etc., are called allergens and are completely harmless for most people.

An allergic reaction begins when an allergen (for example pollen) enters the body of a person, who is allergic to that particular allergen and triggers the release of antibodies. These antibodies attach themselves to special cells, called mast cells. When this allergen (pollen) comes into contact with the antibodies, the mast cells respond by releasing histamine and other chemicals.

Allergy may be atopic (inherited) or acquired. The allergens may hit your eyes, nose, sinus, skin, stomach, bowels, lungs etc and may cause conjunctivitis, allergic rhinitis, urticaria (hives), eczema, allergic asthma, etc and sometimes may result into anaphylaxis – a serious situation which may put your body into shock.

Antihistamines, intranasal corticosteroid nasal sprays etc may provide the symptomatic relief but the episodes may recur once you get exposed to that particular allergen again.

Allergy and Ayurveda

In Ayurveda, Allergy is described as Asatmya. Asatmya literally means Intolerance or Incompatibility or Unsuitability.

In other words, Asatmya is that “which doesn’t suit the self” and ‘self’ here includes mind, body and soul. Pathophysiologically, Allergy is a condition in which either of the doshas ( Vata, Pitta & Kapha), individually or in unison, refuses to accept and adjust with some specific change in diet or environment and as a result, react against the causative factor.

Apart from doshas, misbalanced Agni (Digestive Fire) and hence produced ama (toxins) play a pivotal role in allergic reactions.

The Ayurvedic treatment puts emphasis on clinical observations of signs and symptoms of Allergy. The first line of treatment being  Nidan Parivarjanam ­ – to avoid the cause.

The causative factors may include any of the substances discussed above. However it is not always possible to evade the cause and sometimes even the patient himself is not aware of the allergen; hence, an all-inclusive Ayurvedic treatment is required.

It includes Shamana Chikitsa (Palliative treatment), and once the acute symptoms subside, Shodhana Chikitsa (Detoxification program or Panchakarma) is done to avoid the recurrence.

By and large Ashwagandha, Shatawari and Yashtimadhu are good herbal antihistamines for Vata, Pitta and Kapha  type of Allergy respectively but Ayurveda believes in individualized approach towards a patient and disease.

 Seasons and Allergy

There are certain seasonal allergies which are described as per Ayurveda those are further connected to the state or changes in the season regimen of the earth at that time, means according to the rituachrya.

Ayurveda further states that season trigger allergies due to ‘doshas’ that are involved. To find a treatment, it is important to determine the aggravated ‘dosha’.

Vata types of allergies are caused due to dryness. Symptoms includes dry cough with dry phlegm, insomnia and anxiety. It gets worse in dry or windy environments and also during autumn.

Pitta type allergies cause excessive heating such as burning eyes, rashes and loose stools. The condition usually worsens during summers.

Kapha allergies develop due to moist, humid conditions and worsen during spring time as the weather warms up. It shows up as cloudy or clear mucus production and slow digestion. You should follow a liquid diet of liquefied fruits and vegetables once a week.

For curing allergies with Ayurveda, we must focus on cleansing the body off the toxins and boosting the immune system. If the allergies last all year long, it is advisable to visit an ayurvedic practitioner for proper guidance and diet plan.

How to Cure Allergies with Ayurveda

  • We must avoid heavy foods such as dairy, meats and nuts.
  • We should do hearty lunch and opt for a very light dinner.
  • Drinking plenty of warm water would be much relaxing.
  • Exercising daily.
  • Yoga breathing exercise would be good for relaxing the mind and body.
  • Allergies are worsened with intense stress. Stress causes disturbance in sleep which in turn aggravates the allergy. One must get adequate sleep to avoid allergies.
  • Applying Herbal oil massage enhances blood circulation in the body. This leads to the removal of chemical toxins which might be causing the allergy.

Conclusion

Hence Ayurveda can better deal with the Allergies and we must adhere it according to seasonal regimen, food and taste and for better results one must consult an Ayurveda consultant for complete relief from Allergy.

Happy Monsoon and the Lifestyle according to Ayurveda

 

Written and Edited by Dr Vikram Singh (Md, Ayur)
Founder of Ayurcare

Monsoon is a season of romance. The cool breeze and damp smell of the earth after a long roasting summer turn the mind ecstatic. Jumping in the puddles, dancing in the rain, going for a long drive etc add to the pleasure. However, it continues to remains so until an individual holds good health as rainy season brings a plethora of diseases along with. It has been observed that there is an increased occurrence of air and water-borne diseases in the rainy season.

Ayurveda lays emphasis on prevention of diseases rather than to cure them. Based on the analytical reasoning, Ayurveda recommends different regimens of diet and lifestyle for different seasons to ward off the imbalances in the body and thereby helps in boosting immunity and maintaining good health. This concept of following a specific diet and lifestyle modification in a specific season to prevent various diseases is described as Ritucharya.
Ritucharya is derived from two words –


1. Ritu (Season) and
2. Charya (Regimen or routine to be followed).


Monsoon season is categorized as Varsha Ritu in Ayurvedic texts. It ranges from the month of Shravana toBhadrapada (Mid July to Mid September) and denotes the onset of Visarga Kala or Dakshinayana or Southern Solstice. During this season, the sky is covered by clouds and rains occur without the thunderstorm. The ponds, rivers, etc are filled with water.

Ayurveda describes the aggravation of Vata and accumulation of Pitta in Varsha Ritu. Constant raining, moisture in the atmosphere and cold weather results in aggravation of Vata which was accumulated during the dry and dehydrating heat of the summer; while Pitta accumulates following the conducive acidic conditions of the atmosphere as the predominant Rasa is Amla (sour) and Prithvi and Agni are predominant Mahabhutas in the rainy season.

According to Ayurveda, Agni is responsible for the digestive & metabolic activities of the body. During monsoon, the digestive fire or Agni weakens, leaving digestive system most vulnerable to various ailments. Diet thus followed during this season should balance the vitiated doshas and stimulate Agni to perform proper digestion.

Monsoon is the time when body’s immunity drops, thus proper care should be taken to prevent possible illnesses like general debility, blood and skin related problems, pain and swelling of joints, ringworm, fever, malaria, dysentery etc. In addition, other virus and bacteria related diseases may also emerge.

Here are few simple guidelines recommended by Ayurveda that should be followed during the monsoon season. By following these dos and don’ts, you’ll be able to celebrate the monsoons without fearing its adverse impact –

DIETARY REGIMEN 
 
ü One of the foremost rules in monsoon in Ayurveda is to eat according to the ability of one’s digestion. One must use spices such as pepper, ginger, asafoetida (Hing), garlic, cumin powder, coriander and turmeric for enhancing digestive capability. A small piece of ginger with rock salt before every meal is highly recommended. These help in improving immunity too.
ü Consume warm, light and fresh foods prepared from barley, rice, wheat, gram flour, corn or oats. Brown rice and bread are the best food items to go with during monsoons.
ü Avoidance of curds, red meat and any foodstuff, which takes longer time to digest, is good during the monsoon. One may have buttermilk instead of curds. Include cow’s ghee in daily diet to kindle the digestive fire.
ü Consumption of uncooked / raw leafy vegetables and salads should be avoided. You may consume their sour and salted soups instead. However, if you want to have them raw, they should be washed thoroughlyto ensure removal of bacteria and dirt before eating. The leafy vegetables contain larvae too and you need to be very careful in finding them while washing. The vegetables recommended in this season include yam (Suran), snake gourd (Turi), pointed gourd (Parwal), bitter gourd (Karela), cluster beans (Gavaar), apple gourd (Tinda), pumpkin, brinjal, bottle gourd and garlic etc.
ü Drinking boiled water with a dash of honey, or sipping on hot and herbal tea is ideal for this season. Drink small portions of lukewarm water throughout the day for good digestion. Pure water should be taken. If the water is taken from well, pond or river, then alum should be applied before using it. Water should be consumed within 24 hours of boiling. Avoid drinking excess fluids at this time as this further slows down the metabolism.
ü Among fruits, stick to pomegranates, mangoes, bananas, apples, lychees and cherries. Stick to seasonal fruits during monsoons as the unseasonal ones can easily get infected with microbes and worms during the monsoons.
ü Avoid non-vegetarian foods in monsoon. The possibility of germ content is highest in non-vegetarian foods.Those who can’t should go for lighter meat preparations like soups and stews rather than heavy curries.
ü Increased intake of sweet, sour and salty food is recommended while excessive pungent, bitter and astringent tastes should be avoided. Food, which contains acid, salt and greasiness, should be taken.
ü Although it is difficult to resist snacks in the cool weather, your diet should mostly consist of cereals and vegetables cooked in minimum of oil. If you want to snack, there is no dearth of healthy options. In rainy season, prefer grilled items such as bhutta (corn), chana (black gram), etc as humidity is very high and these food items are relaxing to the system and will not lead to accumulation of doshas. Having oily food would create problems in digestion.
ü Eat food cooked at home always. Excellent road side temptations like pani puri and bhel puri are not prepared hygienically and thus may cause stomach aches. So it would be better to control yourself till the end of the season so as to keep yourself healthy and fit to enjoy the monsoons to the fullest.
Avoid eatingchaats, fried items such as pakoras, pre-cut fruits and juices from roadside vendors
Avoid foods such as pasta, soups, and other such foods which are meant to be good host for the growth of bacteria. Avoid fermented foods which include idli, dosa, uttapam, etc. People tend to eat a lot of junk and fried food during the rainy season. This can lead to weight gain and lethargy.
ü Excessively spicy foods such as tamarind and pickles should be avoided. They add taste to your food but can be very heavy in the monsoon.
ü Don’t consume food which is stored in cold storage or a refrigerator.
ü Fasting is especially recommended in the monsoon season, particularly for people fond of erratic eating. You can gain a lot of health benefits simply by observing a weekly or fortnightly fast during monsoon. It helps to improve your digestive fire.
 LIFESTYLE MODIFICATIONS
Consumption of healthy diet only may not provide desired results unless supported by lifestyle modifications. Following are the tips for important changes in lifestyle of rainy season –
ü Avoiding daytime sleep is good as it hampers digestion and slows down the metabolism. Similarly, waking during night too is a bad thing to do as it further vitiates an already aggravated Vata.
ü Over exertion or over work will lower your metabolic rate and hence must be avoided. Perform only moderate exercises such as light walks and simple yogasanas. Do not tire yourself.
ü Keep the surrounding dry and clean and do not allow water to stagnate at places near you as it offers mosquito, flies and many microorganisms which may cause many diseases like malaria, typhoid, common cold, conjunctivitis, cholera and a variety of skin diseases.
ü Avoid getting wet in the rains. Always carry an umbrella. However, if it happens, it is better to take a bath with clean water and change into dry clothes as soon as possible in order to avoid exposure from infections as immunity is naturally low during monsoon. Keep body warm, to protect any attack from viruses as and when body temperature goes down.
ü Dampness breeds fungal and bacterial infections. Hence home as well as workplace should be damp free.
ü Oil massage followed by a warm water bath regularly is recommended.
ü Fumigation with likes of loban and dry neem leaves for drying cloths and killing insects / bacteria is recommended.
ü Use of Perfumes is advocated in this season.

PANCHAKARMA

Varsha Ritu or Monsoon season is considered as the best to go through Ayurvedic treatments since the moist climate opens up the pores in the skin, making it more receptive to all the medications and treatments. Ayurvedic treatments are highly recommended during this season in order to prevent any kind of disorders and to boost immunity.
Here are few key benefits of Ayurveda during the Monsoon season 

 

Balances the vitiated doshas
Increases immunity
Cleanses & detoxifies the body
Rejuvenates body & mind 
Prevents lifestyle disorders like diabetes, blood pressure & stress
Conclusion
In this season, more especially, people of vataja prakriti and likewise people suffering from vataja disorders like arthritis (rheumatoid as well as osteoarthritis), backache, lumbar and cervical spondylosis, insomnia, swelling in joints, sciatica, body aches etc are major sufferers. They must consult an Ayurvedic consultant so as to avoid a Vata imbalance.
If the above-mentioned diet and lifestyle is followed during the Monsoon, one can do their best to balance the body and mind.

Ritucharya: An Overview of Seasonal Regimen in Ayurveda by Dr Vikram

Ritucharya: Ayurvedic Seasonal Regimen for Healthy Living

Written and Compiled by Dr Vikram Jasrotia (Ayr, MD)

Founder of Ayurcare

PREFACE


Ayurveda is the ‘Science of life’. Its fundamental and foremost principle is to maintain the health of a healthy individual by following proper diet and lifestyle regimen rather than to treat or cure an ailment. To achieve this goal, Ayurveda explains various protocols as per the need and necessity of an individual. These protocols vary from person to person as Ayurveda doesn’t accept ‘one-size-fits-all’ as true. As per Ayurveda no two persons are exactly alike in the given time. Hence the treatment is recommended keeping a variety of aspects of ailment and ailing individual in mind.
Apart from age, sex, constitution etc of the sick, various other external factors too are taken into consideration while treating a person, which may intermingle with the wellness of that individual. For example, the environmental factors including temperature, humidity, wind, rain, clouds, the nature of the land, water of the given place etc are kept in mind while designing a treatment protocol. To be more precise, the treatment plan for an individual dwelling in the mountainous terrain of Kashmir will be different from a person residing in tropical Punjab. Likewise choice of drugs varies from season to season.
TRIDOSHA
 
This whole Universe is composed of five basic elements called Panchamahabhuta or Panchatatva viz., Ether (Akash), Air (Vayu), Fire (Agni), Water (Jala) and Earth (Prithvi); and man being the microcosm of this Universe, too is made up of these five basic elements. These five elements interact in specific patterns constituting Vata, Pitta & Kapha collectively called as Tridosha.
Tridosha are basic humors or bio-entity of the body. However, they can’t be seen being a non-physical entity, yet are evident through their bodily functions and typical symptoms. The balanced state of Tridoshas symbolizes health and imbalance of the same is considered as illness.

RITUCHARYA 
 
Ayurveda advocates that our body is affected by seasonal changes. As stated above, man is microcosm of the Universe. Vata, Pitta &Kapha govern all bodily activities of human as Air, Sun and Water do in the ecosystem of earth. As we see various changes in ecosystem such as scorching heat in summers, biting cold in winters etc, man being a part of the same ecology, his body is also influenced by such alterations in external environment. With the change in season, the change is evident in the environment we live in. If body refuses to adopt the stressors arose because of the changes in specific traits of seasons, it may lead to imbalance of Tridosha, which in turn may render the body highly susceptible to one or other kinds of disorders. To avoid this imbalance of Tridosha, Ritucharya (seasonal regimen) has been mentioned in the classics of Ayurveda.
Lifestyle diseases are a result of an inappropriate relationship of people with their environment. Ayurveda has depicted various rules and regimens regarding diet and behavior to acclimatize seasonal alterations and thus prevents the derangement of homeostasis which may cause various diseases such as obesity, diabetes, hypertension, cancer etc. Ritucharya is a mode of living one’s life in context of the seasons. It is an ancient Ayurvedic practice literally meaning ‘seasonal regimen’. It recommends different diets and lifestyle schedules in each season which help in retaining the health. This could range from obvious choices such as wearing warmer clothes during the winter to seasonal eating habits. The importance of Ritucharya in Ayurveda is that the principles from it can be applied daily to benefit one’s body.

SEASONS
 
 
Ayurveda describes six seasons, each of two months duration, namely Shishira, Vasanta, Grishma, Varsha, Sharada and Hemanta in a year. A year (Samvatsara) is further divided into two semesters (Ayana), consisting of six months with three seasons each.
(1) Uttarayana or Northern Solstice – It indicates the ascent of the Sun or when the Sun appears to move northward. It comprises ofShishira, Vasanta & Grishma seasons. It is Agneya (Fire-like property) in nature.
(2) Dakshinayana or Southern Solstice – Dakshinayana indicates the descent of the sun or when the Sun appears to move southward. It comprises of Varsha, Sharad and Hemant seasons.
Uttarayana or Adana Kala or Northern Solstice 
 

 

Uttarayana is also called Adana Kala. Adana means ‘to take away’. In Indian subcontinent this period may range from mid – January to mid – July when warmness and dryness in atmosphere increases and reaches its peak. The Sun and the wind become extremely powerful during this half of the year. The scorching heat of the Sun takes away the moisture and cooling quality of Earth leaving it dry and rough. Likewise energy and strength of the creatures also dries up leaving them debilitated. Adana Kala brings increase in the Tikta (bitter),Kashaya (astringent), and Katu (pungent) rasa (taste) respectively, in the successive ritus, which brings about dryness in the body and reduces the Bala (strength).
According to modern science this can be compared with the movement of Earth around the Sun to the position in which the rays of the Sun fall perpendicularly at 30 degree meridian of the North Pole on June 21st every year, called as summer solstice.


Dakshinayana or Visarga Kala or Southern Solstice 

 
Dakshinayana, also known as Visarga Kala is for giving of strength and vigour in all living beings. During this period, Moon dominates the Sun and anabolic activity dominates over the catabolic activity in the environment. The Sun releases the strength to the people while Earth is cooled down due to the clouds, rain and cold wind. Unctuousness sets in the atmosphere and Amla (sour), Lavana (salty), and Madhura(sweet) Rasa are predominant, so the strength of person enhances during this period. This period ranges from mid – July to mid – January in the Indian subcontinent.
According to modern science, this can be compared with the movement of the earth around the sun to the position in which the rays of the sun fall over 30 degree meridian of the South Pole perpendicularly on December 21st every year, called as winter solstice.


CLASSIFICATION OF SEASONS

TRIDOSHA STATUS IN DIFFERENT SEASONS

Vata dosha accumulates during the dry or dehydrating heat of the summer. In rainy season, due to constant raining, the moisture and cold weather aggravates Vata. The apetite (Agni) becomes low and causes indigestion.

Pitta accumulates during the rainy season due to the acidic conditions of the atmosphere and a weakened digestion. It is aggravated during autumn when the heat returns .This occurs after the cooling spell of the rainy season.
Kapha accumulates during the cold season due to the cold and dampness caused by the winds, clouds and rain. It gets aggravated during the spring when the warm weather liquefies the accumulating Kapha.
SEASONAL VARIATION IN HUMAN STRENGTH 
In the beginning of Visarga Kala and ending of Adana kala, i.e., during Varsha and Grishma, strength gets weak and debility occurs. In the middle of the solstices, that is, during Sharata and Vasanta, strength remains in moderate grade and during the end of Visarga Kala and in the beginning of Adana Kala, that is, during Hemanta and Shishira, maximum strength is seen.
SEASONAL VARIATION IN POTENCY OF TASTES 
 

The following table summarizes the tastes which are more powerful and hence can be included in the diet in each of the six seasons.

Conclusion:
As adaptations according to the changes, is the key for survival, the knowledge of Ritucharya (regimen for various seasons) is thus important.

Understanding Heart Issue fatality – Child death Heart attack/stroke and astrological connection

Understanding Heart Issue fatality

Article Written by Jatinder Sandhu

The circulation of the human body is based on three zodiac signs Leo the heart and pump, Sagittarius the arterial system and Aquarius the venous system, Sign Aquarius has been named Hridya roga in Brihat jatak , roughly translated it means a heart disease.

Planet moon signified blood and heart, sun heart and circulation, as per Greek astrology Leo/Aquarius axis has been defined as Circulatory axis.

Image result for Heart attack

In this chart moon is in 12th ,its said planets whose lords go to 6,8 or 12 suffer. So here as lord of 3rd the secondary longevity house it suffers.

Venus is the lord of ascendant and 6th under aspect from ketu . There is an exchange between 3rd and 12th kords moon and mars.

The initial two months Maha dasha of ketu – mercury is in operation ,mercury is lord of 2nd the marak here.

 

 

 

64th navamsa lord Mars 22nd drekana Sun, 3rd house , mars and sun are in Sarpa drekana ( dangerous for health).

Transits and dasha on Feb 2018 the time of death Venus – Venus its lord of ascendant or self/physical body and the 6th the trigger of diseases.

Transits Saturn Sagittarius the natal 8th house ,Rahu over sun and mars in 3rd house of natal horoscope ,ketu in 9th of natal horoscope ,mars in Scorpio the 7th house over natal Saturn,Sun ,mercury and Venus in Aquarius over natal ketu.

So in the horoscope Mars in transit connects with natal ascendant/ 6th lord Venus so 7th lord the marak in transit connecting with Dasha lord made it tough for the baby. 

Coupled with circulatory axis going bad , moon in an adverse position, Saturn also connects with dasha lord the 7th aspect.

Saturn in transit connects with natal mars ( inflammation creator) Jupiter the signification of cholesterol and arterial system , Saturn signifies blockage and it is known for all kind of blockages like stones in human body , so Saturn+Jupiter +mars when they connect they represent blockage of heart or formation of clot , that may turn fatal.

BPHS says that sometimes the lord of kendras( angular houses) or trikonas (trines) can bring death in their dasha, further it also says that dasha of planet in 2,7,6,8,12 from atam karka can kill since sun is the atam karka planet in 12th from it is Venus so the dasha of Venus was fatal.

Medical Astrology: A Short Overview on How to see Surgical Operations from Astrological Methods as explained by Late Dr Raman


(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Usually, It has been widely seen that Mars (tools) and Ketu (Sharp edge micro Tools) are major two planets responsible for Surgical operations in astrology and 8th house/lord is seen for secretive, hidden diseases and long chronical diseases, whereas 6th house and its lord has seen for day to day diseases and surgeries connected with them.

Normally we see Surgeries of secret body parts based on the placement of a planet in 8th house and Sign involves in 8th, as it usually gives us clue for afflicted body parts or Deep inside damaged tissues or cells.


(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Any malefic planet influence on the 8th house usually causes serious surgeries or operation wrt to the exact body part ruled by the Sign for e.g Aries – head, Taurus – nose or eyes, Gemini – Vocals, neck etc.

The general rule is, if Lagna lord is weak, 6th and 8th Lord is also afflicted with added influence of Mars and Nodes (South Node Ketu) on 6th, 8th Lord then we can easily say that Native might undergo Surgery once in his lifetime.

Survival chances of the Native from the Serious surgeries depending on Strength of the Lagna lord in D1 and D9 chart.

But the study of the 8th house and its lord is very much important for understanding long chronical diseases which can take shape into serious troubles in the body into ” Ulcers, Cancers or Hidden Secret diseases like Aids “.

As 8th house is deep hidden house and surgery is also a deep hidden secret process where doctors need to find out damaged tissues via tracing it with different technologies and pieces of equipment for an exact location of body tissues which is under the malefic influence.

By simply assuming that 8th house is afflicted by the malefic planet placement and it can give diseases or native can undergo any surgery or operation, it would be a wrong practice in the medical astrological analysis to approach on any conclusion.

As per Late Dr Raman understanding, If any house is under heavy affliction by the malefic planet, native can go under severe surgery or operations.

For eg if we take example of Aq Lagna – ” If Lagna lord Saturn is in 8th house and if it is heavily afflicted by Mars (which is lord of 3rd House- the House dealing with nasal, shoulder etc ) or aspects by Mars and if Sat also aspects the 6th lord than native will definitely undergo operation specially in “ Area of Nasal or May be Sinus issue can be Seen “.

Take an Another E.g if native has Rahu in its 12th house aspects by Mars and if 12th Sign be Aries native may undergo operation of “Ulcer in the Foot” as Rahu is Spoiling the 12th house which is House of Foot and aspect of Mars who is also lord of 12th by mutual aspect to Rahu giving “Ulcer in the Foot “.

So, We need to see every factor when we are dealing with surgeries and operations in Medical Astrology.

Only we have to see the exact house of affliction either By Mars or by Ketu for any Surgical Operations than we can conclude that native may undergo operations or not.

Event on Surgeries on Body parts depends on transits of Rah, Mars, and Sat and Particularly Depends on the Malefic Antardasha and Pratyantrantar dasha period.

Rakesh

Naturopathic.in Solution for Cancer: The Amazing Budwig’s Protocol for treatment of Cancer (Diet plan for Cancer)

Written by Alok Jagawat

A RAW DIET FOR CANCER CURE AND OVERALL HEALTH.

Yesterday I was waiting in the office of an Ophthalmologist (A person who can look directly in your eyes, without a tint of emotions. Joking), and I came across this amazing recipe related to natural diet. This recipe is also known as Budwig’s protocol.


(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

My Son’s eyes needed a new pair of spectacles and we have nothing to do but to wait. I took a magazine (Health-related) from the shelf and started reading it. I came across an article by Lothar Hirneise (President and Founder of People against Cancer [Menschen gegen Krebs] Germany) [1] who referred to Dr.Johanna Budwig’s [2]treatment as the best alternative treatment for Cancer in the world.


Here is the Exact quote for Reader’s reference:

“Of all the alternative Cancer treatment that I have investigated, Dr.Johanna Budwig’s is definitely number one…Nowhere in the world, I found such fantastic cases as with Dr.Budwig. It’s phenomenal”


I was curious and googled it. Cutting the long story short, here is Brief of Dr.Budwig’s Protocol:

Budwig Protocol in Brief

Sauerkraut is rich in vitamins including C. enzymes and helps develop the health promoting gut flora. lt is alkaline and cleansing. (I found the same diet plan with Karnataka Farmers. There are many farmers, cross 90 years of age who are still very healthy. Their diet plan usually starts with the same.)

8:00 AM Breakfast A cup of green tea or herbal tea, sweetened with real honey. Take such tea before every meal.

10:00 AM Fresh-pressed juices Can-or juice, radish juice, beets etc. with lemon.

11:15 PM Salad plate (tomato. cucumber. lettuce. radish, cabbage, broccoli, and pepper) with cottage
cheese and flax oil mayo dressing (Prepared by mixing together a Tbsp Flax Oil. 2 Tbsp milk. 2 Tbsp cottage cheese and 2 Tbsp Lemon juice. Add a variety of herbs making the plate most appealing.

2:30 PM Main Course Vegetables cooked in water. then flavored with Oleolux (it is a healthy alternative to butter developed by Ludwig) and herbs possibly with oatmeal. curry etc. Vegetable soups flavored with a little Ole out and yeast flakes. as a side dish for buckwheat, brown rice, millet or potatoes.

Ancient secrets of Vedic Astrological glimpse on Gems based on ancient treaties – How Gems work in enhancing fruits of efforts

Astrology
and gems are associated from times immemorial. Astrologers often recommend gems
and associate them to planets. While the association is clear in so many
classics, the wearing of gems for particular planet is not mentioned in classics.

Associations are clear in Phaldeepika and Jatakparijat:

“Manikayam Tarne Sudharya mamalam Muktaphalam
Sheetgo,

Maheyasya cha Vidrumam Markatam Saumyasya Garutmatsm,

Devedyasya cha PushparagamSuramatyasya Vajram Shane,

Neerlam NirmalManyayochashya Gadite GomedjhVaiduryake” 

(Grahbehdadhyay, Sloka 29,Phaldeepika)

Vrihadjataka, Vrhat Samhita, Yukti
Kalpataru, Rajvallabha, Shushrut Samhita , Garud Purana refers to use of gems
in certain conditions and they associate gems to powerful magical properties. 

Dharnat tachh papalaxmi Vinashnam”
(Rajvallabha)

“Pavitra Dharnayach Paya Laxmimalapaha” (Shushrut Shanita)

“Te te Yathapurvamatiprashasta Saubhagyasampatividhandayaka” (Yukti Kalpataru)






Please
note that ‘Gems’ refers to ‘Ratna’ and every stone is not gemstone. Classics
define “Ratna” according to following basis:

1.
Gems taken out or mined on inauspicious Muhurta have ill affects despite of
being good in luster and appearance. 

In “Ratnajati” chapter of Manimala, Sloka six reads




“Stones originating on
inauspicious days and at unlucky moments are not only void of any beneficial
quality but are positively harmful”(
Ratnajati
Adhyaya, Sloka 6, Manimala
)



(Most of gems do not fulfill this criteria. This is because as a Gemologist and
gem buyer, I have come across several gemstones and they are mined at
commercial level and not on the basis of some auspicious Muhurta )..




Same thing is mentioned in Chapter 68 of Garudpuranam. (Please forgive me I
have a translated version of Garudpuranam and Sloka numbers are not mentioned)





2. Gems should be free of inclusions, spots, internal cracks and should
carry proper color. (90% of the gems sold by astrologers do not fit this
description). In “Ratnaparikshadhyay” of Vraht Shanita,  it is clearly mentioned:

“Ratnen Shubhen Shubham
Bhavati Nripanaamanishthamshubhen,
Yasmadatah Parikshayam Devam Ratnashritam Tajagye”



Good, clean and gems of top quality bring good luck to emperors and those which
are of bad quality bring bad luck. Hence an astrologer should first check the
gem for quality and only then he should provide it to others. Gems are carriers
of fate.
3.
Gems are worn after certain propitiation and rituals like removal of negative
influences through proper mantras.




Point 3 is my own view. I believe that only ‘Ratnas’ defined in classics should carry “Swapranavastha” (Self invoked state) and rest of the gemstones are just stones. To energize them one needs proper mantras to invoke their powers which are positioned in dormant condition. This is the same as Idols of Deities need to be “Pranpratishtith” before they are worshipped. But Shalagrams and Dakshinavarti Shankas have their own powers and they are never invoked through Mantras.


4. A gem which is powerful and fulfills above criteria gets devoid of its power
when the inheritor is an impure person. Please refer to the epic related to
Syamantak mani. 

Prasena was the brother of Satrajita. Once Satrajita took up his abode in the seacoast for the purpose of spending his time in worshipping Sun. After he prayed long and intently, Surya dev appeared before him. On being accosted, the divine Sun took out the gem Syamantaka from his neck and laid it out. Sun gave this Priceless jewel to Satrajita. It is said that on wearing the gem he appeared refulgent like Sun and entered Dwarka. Satrajita later transferred it to his brother Prasena. When own by a clean man Syamantak produced gold, but to an unclean person it indubitably proved fatal. Prasena decked this gem and rode hunting into the forest. He killed innocent animals on account of which the gem altered his destiny. His impure heart bought his untimely fatal death when a lion slew both the horse and the horseman.

When
we look at above criteria, it is very clear and evident that an average man,
who is bound by restrictions of average income cannot possess above kind of
“Ratnas”. Gems will come to you if you own a powerful horoscope and
trust me they will fit above definitions. Considering the authenticity of
wearing gems, certain classics do not mention them as remedies. Rather, they
are mentioned as powerful Talismans related to certain planets.

Remedies include Mantra, tantra and Yantra for propitiation of planets. It is a fact that your deeds can never be altered. Nothing can entirely mitigate your deeds. But you can lower the intensity of mishaps in your life if you can read what planets signify. A wise astrologer can tell you about some prayer, a stone or a ‘yantra’ that will help you bear the fruits of your deeds. Your soul may never escape the clutches of your ‘karmas’ but with remedies or Parihar you will get strengthened enough to bear that.While remedies are meant for removal of harmful effects of planets, talismans are entirely different things. They are meant for either providing one with special supernormal powers or for some definitive purpose. For instance gems can be recommended as remedies to a person when a particular planet is weak but benefic. Through a gem one can increase the intensity of its beneficence. But when a Mukta like the “Shankhamukta” is worn, it will give you all round power, devoid of its relation with any planet. This is because “Shakhamukta” is a Devmani which carries special powers and charm.

In those times gems were not available
easily. One cannot acquire them because of the low grade methods of mining. Now
with the advance facilities of mining and lapidary, gems are within the reach
of certain class of people. Still they may or may not fulfill particular
criteria and may not affect people as been mentioned in classics.

For
example in the “Ratnaparikshadyaya” sloka 14, 
Varahmihira defines the qualities of a blessed diamond:
“SarvadravyaBhedya  laghvambhasi tarati rashmivat Snighdham,
Tadidanlashaktrachapopamam cha Vajram Hitayoktam”



A diamond  which cannot be cut through
any device (This means that a diamond should be hard), which appears heavier
while held in hand, appears light when seen. 

“Tarati Rashmivat” means which
appears as if it is not touching the bottom when kept in water and then it should
radiate light, and should shine with sparks and appears like fire and rainbow
colors, then it  is considered the best
of all.



Now match this criterion with presently available diamonds in stores, you will hardly find any diamond which will match this description. The effects defined in classics may stand true but gemstones should match their definitions for the same.

I have stressed this idea in many of my write ups, that it is not so easy to change your destiny. Gems can off course change your destiny, but again that can only take place after supernormal intervention.

I can narrate an incident which is related to my life only. A person from Iceland came to visit me for astrological consultation. He became a good friend of mine and asked me to explain certain mantras and their process. He was devoted to lord Shiva and so, while he was leaving the country, I gifted him a beautiful Crystal Shivlingam. He was so happy with the above thing that he gave me a blue sapphire piece just as a token of appreciation. This sapphire was deep blue in color and fulfilled every criteria mentioned in the Shastras. Moreover it had a blue sheen like a peacock’s blue shine on its long neck. I got it embedded in Gold and performed the rituals mention in the classics. I wore it and the experience I got, is unparalleled. Unlike whatever is been mentioned in classics, I had a totally different experience. I constantly felt a cold sensation near my solar plexus and my back. This sensation moved towards my head and my head remained cold most of time. I felt as if somebody had kept ice on my head. I also felt that a golden hew surrounded everybody I used to talk to. As if this was not enough, there were times when I felt that I am not inside my body. I know, most of this would be taken as a joke, but what I have mentioned is true, word to word.

Later
on I also understood the astrological combination which resulted into this kind
of experience. I was born on 3rd March 1977 at 14:34:40 Hours at
Neemuch, (MP)
Saturn
is a benefic over here as it is the lord of the ninth house and placed in the
Nakshatra of ascendant lord. Mars aspects it as exalted planet. Moon +Saturn
often cause “Pravjaya” like situation when it is aspected by Mars. Saturn and
Moon both occupy the Dhanur Navmansha which is Jupiter’s sign. Saturn occupied
Meena in Vimshamsha and hence it created that state of liberation. 

Please note that gems have particular powers and when God needs you to be out
of troubles, he can definitely show you his powers.

Remedies
affect a person only in certain cases when the mantra is properly invoked and
then denailed. Most of the sadhus initiate people with wrong mantras. The
utkeelan process of a mantra could only be achieved through a proper Guru who
understands and lives with a mantra. 

Mantras were nailed by lord Shiva when demons started using them for gaining power and affluence. Their pronunciation was altered (Keelit) so that nobody can use them without proper knowledge and path. Every mantra has its own nail and bears an Utkeelan as well. The methods of Utkeelan are only shared through Guru Shishya Parampara and every mantra carries its own process. One is considered fortunate if he/she can obtain the utkeelan bejaas for their respective mantra. Please note that a prayer is like “Avahan” of a deity. Your mantras act as “Bhog” for Deities. But mantras without proper utkeelan do not reach out for Devatas. They act as “Bhog” for negative souls. Hence one should be very careful with mantras. Keelit mantras can bring mental illusion for its bearer and follower.

Same is the case with Yantras. Yantras have supernormal powers once they are
charged. But they lose their power when the “Karta” or the owner
becomes impure. The devatas which reside in a yantra leave it when impurity
enters a “Sadhak’s ” mind.

Gems
have the same criteria. They need to be washed with proper herbs and the person
wearing it needs to maintain a high level of purity. It is better to wear them
around neck then in fingers. Every gem should be purified before wearing. The
purification can be performed by keeping gems in their respective herbs for a
period of twenty four hours. Gems associated to planets which are malefic in a
horoscope, should never be worn.

Donations of gems are indicated in Shastras as remedies. One who cannot procure
high quality gems can donate their substitutes as remedies. Gems could be worn
or affect a person if they fulfill the above mentioned criteria. Gems are often
attracted towards people who have very strong Venus and who are undergoing a
Venus major period. One can collect gems during such periods.
Gems
which are not mined and are formed in animals, shells and other organisms are
called devmanis and they bear supernormal powers.  These manis and muktas are mentioned in
Chapter sixty-nine of Garudpuranam and “Mukta Laxnadhyaya” of Vrhat Shanita. They
are very rare and cannot be obtained without luck. Please note that gemstones
have nothing to do with money. Even if you have got too much money, you will
not be able to procure a proper gem. There is a very simple reason behind it.
You cannot change your destiny so easily.
