  2. QUESTION:
    what are the home treatments for kidney stone?
    I am suffering from two kidney stones of size 5*4 and 5*5 which were diagnosed about a year ago. Please suggest me some home remedy and Ayurvedic treatment and eatable foods in such problem.

    • ANSWER:
      Get the herb known as Chanca Piedra aka Stone Breaker.

      I had two 8mm kidney stones and took this herb for 9 days and passed the stones with no pain - only a burning sensation as they exited my body. I retrieved one of the stones but am certain that I passed both because I experienced the burning sensation twice in the same day while urinating. After the first one I went into a cup and then poured it through a coffee filter. The stone measured 7mm x3 mm when it came out. I have had many kidney stones over the years that were much smaller and extremely painful to the point that even morphine did not eliminate all pain. Chanca Piedra is said to be 3 times better than morphine for pain. It relaxes the smooth muscle of the urinary track and expels the stones. Mine were in my kidneys and detected with sonograms. They were only causing mild and occasional pain but I was passing blood and thus suspected I had stones.

      While the label instructions for 500mg Chanca Piedra capsules say to take one capsule a day or 3 capsules twice a day [depending on the brand, I found instructions online that said to take 2 to 3 grams twice a day so that is what I took - four to six capsules twice a day. Nine days on the capsules and I passed the stones. I will continue to take 3 capsules twice a day for at least a month to be sure I am done with them or maybe for longer. I am also expelling phlegm from my lungs due to additional benefits of this herb being good for bronchitis which I have been prone to getting for years.

      I bought mine for less than 5 dollars for a bottle of 60 capsules from Swanson. You can find the link here: http://shopping.yahoo.com/search;_ylt=ApVLaVYnMdnBcfKA_rQtnvoEgFoB?p=chanca+piedra&did=0 Get at least two bottles to be sure - but if it was me I would get more.

      I believe for June 2012 the coupon code SWANBRAND will save you an additional 10% at Swanson and you get free shipping on 50 dollar orders.

      PLEASE NOTE THAT NOT EVERYONE CAN OR SHOULD TAKE THIS PRODUCT:

      Contraindications:
      Chanca piedra has demonstrated hypotensive effects in animals and humans. People with a heart condition and/or taking prescription heart medications should consult their doctor before taking this plant. It may be contraindicated for some individuals with heart conditions and/or heart medications may need monitoring and adjusting.

      Chanca piedra has been considered in herbal medicine to be abortive (at high dosages) as well as a menstrual promoter. While not studied specifically in humans or animals, animal studies do indicate it has uterine relaxant effects. It should therefore be considered contraindicated during pregnancy.

      Chanca piedra has been documented with female antifertility effects in one mouse study (the effect was reversed 45 days after cessation of dosing). While this effect has not been documented in humans, the use of the plant is probably contraindicated in women seeking pregnancy or taking fertility drugs. This effect has not been substantiated sufficiently to be used as a contraceptive, however, and should not be relied on for such.

      Chanca piedra has demonstrated hypoglycemic effects in animals and humans. It is contraindicated for people with hypoglycemia. Diabetics should consult their doctor before taking this plant as insulin medications may need monitoring and adjusting.

      Chanca Piedra has been documented in human and animal studies with diuretic effects. Chronic and acute use of this plant may be contraindicated in various other medical conditions where diuretics are not advised. Chronic long-term use of any diuretic can cause electrolyte and mineral imbalances; however, human studies with chanca piedra (for up to three months of chronic use) has not reported any side effects. Consult your doctor if you choose to use this plant chronically for longer than three months concerning possible side effects of long term diuretic use.

  7. QUESTION:
    what treatment can be done for oily skin so that it becomes brighter,removes patches etc?
    My skin is oily, patches due to pimples, dark spots. I want you to suggest me with the right type of home remedies to be done so that it becomes smooth and glowing skin

    • ANSWER:
      Here are some of the ayurvedic ways and home remedies to treat your body to reduce oil secretion and make it look good longer:
      a) Crab apple- Make a paste. Apply all over the face and neck. Leave for 20 minutes. Wash with lukewarm water. It is a rich source of alpha hydroxy acids (AHA) which tone, soften and moisturize dull oily skin.
      b) Sandalwood powder- Add a few drops of water to half a tablespoon of the powder. Apply the paste all over the face, neck (in upward and outward direction) and hands. Avoid eye area. Let dry. Wash with tepid water. This reduces wrinkles and fine lines while fighting acne and blemishes.
      c) Lemon juice, flour, turmeric powder- Make a paste. (Use all purpose flour) Plain yogurt can be used in place of lemon juice. Apply all over the face except the eye area. Let dry. Rinse. The acids in the lemon juice treat dark spots on the face clearing the complexion. Turmeric brightens the look. (Lemon juice might cause a tingling sensation). Feel the fresh and oil-free skin afterwards.
      d) Wheat germ oil- Massage your face with the oil. Leave it on for 1 hour before washing with tepid water. Natural vitamin E, a powerful anti-oxidant, in this oil prevents skin damage caused by UV rays and environmental pollution. It is great for softening the skin.
      e) Milk- It is particularly necessary for individuals with oily skin to keep their skin clear otherwise it has a tendency to form acne lesions making the skin patchy, discolored and rough. Presence of oil makes the skin sticky thus attracting dirt from the environment clogging the pores. Clogged pores mean increased oil secretion. Milk is an excellent oil free cleanser and it doesn’t dry out the skin. Oily skin has open and enlarged pores. Wash your face several times throughout the day with milk so that the pores are not clogged with sebum/oil. It is very important to wash your face before you go to bed at night. Make-up residues can be the worst enemies of the skin. Mix 2-3 drops of sandalwood or lavender oil with 2 tablespoon of milk and massage gently all over the face cleaning up the dirt, grime and makeup. Pay special attention to the eye area. Do not stretch or over-pull the delicate skin around the eyes while removing eye make-up. Gentle massage improves blood circulation and gives your face a healthy glow. If you have broken skin, avoid stretching in that area to prevent spread of infection.
      e) Honey- Moisturizing the skin is essential as we quickly lose the skin’s natural moistures making it rough and irritated. Dry skin needs a lot of moisturizing but oily skin needs moisturizing too. A skin that is regularly moisturized has fewer fine lines, a smooth texture, less surface flaking and radiates a healthy glow. Honey is an excellent natural moisturizer. Apply a thin layer of honey all over the face. Wash it off with tepid water after 15 minutes. Avoid moisturizing in humid weather. Judge the amount of oil in your skin and moisturize accordingly.
      f) Rice powder and corn flour- It is absolutely necessary to exfoliate with a gentle scrub about 3-4 times per week to balance the skin’s moisture. Rice powder is an excellent natural exfoliating agent. It gives the over-stressed oily skin a new vitality and a healthy radiance.
      Make a paste with 1 tablespoon rice powder, 1 tablespoon corn flour and a few drops of lemon juice. Add water if necessary. Apply all over the face and gently massage in upward and outward direction in a circular motion. The rice powder removes the dead cells that accumulate in the upper layer of the skin thus cleaning up the pores. The sharp, citrus smell of the lemon refreshes and stimulates the nerves while the chemicals in the juice has a bleaching property that treats dark spots left by the various outbreaks of the oily skin.
      g) Potato and cucumber slices- Close your eyes and put 2 slices on top of the eyelids. The natural juices remove dark circles around the eyes.
      h) Almond meal and lemon rind- Make a facial scrub with 2 tablespoon almond meal, 1 tablespoon ground lemon rind and 3-4 tablespoon milk. Gently scrub your face and get rid of the excess oil.

    • ANSWER:
      Hi Ameena

      Here are some ideas to heal the issue.

      Quick Action Plan for SKin Issues

      1. Massage your skin, where needed, with bergamot, camphor, geranium, juniper, lavender, or neroli essential oils.

      2. Ayurvedic practitioners recommend making a paste of ½ tsp each of turmeric and sandalwood paste with enough water, and applying to pimples. Also, drink half a cup of aloe vera juice twice daily until skin clears.

      3. Eat an organic whole foods diet, with plenty of organic cooked and raw vegetables, and whole fruits. Reduce animal fats and stressor foods such as caffeine, refined sugars, and alcohol, as well as colas, candies, and frozen and processed foods. Include more high fiber foods.

      4. Drink eight glasses of pure, filtered water daily. Also, daily have two glasses of raw juice, combining carrot, beet, and celery juice, or, carrot, cucumber, and lettuce (not iceberg), and spinach, with carrot predominating.

      5. Add 3-5 drops of crab apple flower essence to pure water and drink during the day. Rescue Remedy® is good for stress.

      6. Combine the tinctures of herbs such as sarsaparilla, burdock, and cleavers in equal parts, taking ½ tsp three times a day. Drink an infusion of nettle several times a day and apply tea tree oil topically. An infusion of calendula mixed with equal parts of distilled witch hazel can be used as a cleansing wash. Steam sauna your face with red clover, lavender, and strawberry leaves.

      7. Useful homeopathy remedies are Pulsatilla, Silicea, Berberis, Ledum, Sulfur, Arsen alb., Belladonna, and/or Carbo veg.

      8. Enjoy full body immersion hydrotherapy treatments such as steam baths, saunas, sitz baths, colonic irrigation, hot and/or cold compresses, and steam sauna your face with red clover, lavender, and strawberry leaves.

      9. Useful supplements are vitamin A, beta carotene, vitamin B complex, vitamin B6, vitamin C, vitamin E, and zinc. Also include omega-3 fatty acids, brewer's yeast, chlorophyll, and pancreatic enzymes with meals.

      10. Expose your face to sun and air at least 30 minutes a day, and exercise daily. Keep your skin clean by washing your face three times a day with soap made from the herb calendula officinalis, or using other alternatives to soap. Rinse with warm water and pat dry. Keep the skin free of oil and use water-based products. Get sufficient sleep.

      11. Make facial masks from natural products; leave on overnight to help dry the skin if the issue is caused by excess oil.

      12. For long term relief and health be sure to do a colon cleanse. This clears out the toxins in the blood and excess waste in the body. Colon cleansing will healp clear up a lot of issue, expecially skin issues.

      Cause
      Skin Issues may be worsened at adolescence, during the pre-menstrual and/or mid-menstrual cycle due to hormonal action, and when under stress, on contraceptives, eating a poor diet that causes an over acidic system, or taking prescription and non-prescription drugs.

      Skin Issues may suggest the need for better hygiene, or magnesium and vitamin A. Also some skin issues are suggesting vitamin B1 deficiency or absorption problems. Consistent raised spots on the outside of the arms and sometimes even the thighs, resembling "chicken skin," may suggest need for magnesium, vitamin A, or essential fatty acids or the need to avoid foods that inhibit the absorption of these nutrients, such as trans-fatty acids found in margarine and hydrogenated oils, such as cottonseed oil and palm kernel oil.

      Food allergies, allergies to facial creams, soaps, shampoos, makeup, and excess intake of refined sugars, can all cause or contribute to skin issues. Certain foods can also aggravate skin conditions because of their high-acid forming effects on the body, especially fried foods, trans fats, iodized salt, alcohol, hot and spicy foods, all processed foods, chocolate, fruit juices, carbonated beverages, caffeinated beverages, and dairy products. Excessive long-term intake of seafood or other high iodine foods may also cause issues in some people.

      Coexisting gum problems suggest the need for folic acid. A separate skin condition may occur in women 30-40 years old due to physical exercising or working all day with face makeup, lowered resistance due to stress, or hyper-response to bacteria or hormone problems. Another skin problem, acne rosacea (reddish spots in a pattern over nose and cheeks), may be a sign of low B vitamins or low hydrochloric acid in the stomach.

      Best of health to you

The specific treatment approach used will depend on the type of depression, its severity, and personal preferences. In general, most depressive disorders are treated with psychotherapy or counseling, medication, or some combination of the two.

      Home Remedies for Depression

      Depression home remedies and natural cures, Questions and answers
      Depression treatment using Apple

      Apple is one of the most valuable remedies for mental depression. The various chemical substances present in this fruit such as vitamin B, phosphorus, and potassium help the synthesis of glutamic acid, which controls the wear and tear of nerve cells. The fruit should be taken with milk and honey. This remedy will act as a very effective nerve tonic and recharge the nerves with new energy and life.
      Depression treatment using Cashewnut

      The cashewnut is another valuable remedy for general depression and nervous weakness. It is rich in vitamins of the B group, especially thiamine, and is therefore useful in stimulating the appetite and the nervous system. It is also rich in riboflavin which keeps the body active, cheerful, and energetic.
      Depression treatment using Asparagus

      The root of asparagus has been found beneficial in the treatment of depression. It is highly nutritious and is used as a herbal medicine for mental disorders. It is a good tonic for the brain and nerves. One or two grams of the powder of the dry root of the plant can be taken once daily.
      Depression treatment using Cardamom

      The use of cardamom has proved valuable in depression. Powdered seeds should be boiled in water and tea prepared in the usual way. A very pleasing aroma is added to the tea, which can be used as a medicine in the treatment of this condition.
      Depression treatment using Lemon Balm

      The herb lemon balm has been used successfully in the treatment of mental depression. It alleviates brain fatigue, lifts the heart from depression, and raises the spirits. A cold infusion of the balm taken freely is reputed to be excellent for its calming influence on the nerves. About thirty grams of the herb should be placed in half a litre of cold water and allowed to stand for twelve hours. The infusion should then be strained and taken in small doses throughout the day.
      Depression treatment using Rose

      An infusion of rose petals should be prepared by mixing 15 gm of rose petals in 250 ml of boiling water. If drunk occasionally, instead of the usual tea and coffee, it is beneficial for treating this condition.
      Depression treatment using Vitamin B

      Diet has a profound effect on the mental health of a person. Even a single nutritional deficiency can cause depression in susceptible people. Nutritional therapy builds up brain chemicals, such as serotonin and norepinephrine, that affect the mood and are often lacking in depressed people. Eating foods rich in vitamin B, such as wholegrains, green vegetables, eggs, and fish helps restore vitality and cheer in an individual.

      Diet for Depression

      Depression : Home Remedies suggested by users
      Exclude tea, coffee, alcohol, strong condiments

      The diet of a person suffering from depression should completely exclude tea, coffee, alcohol, chocolate, colas, all white flour products, sugar, food colorings, chemical additives, white rice, and strong condiments.
      Take three meals a day

      The diet should be restricted to three meals. Fruits can be taken in the morning for breakfast with milk and a handful of nuts or seeds. Lunch may consist of steamed vegetables, wholewheat wheat tortilla and a glass of buttermilk. For dinner, green vegetable salad and all the available sprouts such as alfalfa seeds, green gram beans, cottage cheese, or a glass of buttermilk would be ideal.

      Other Depression treatments

      Become more active, diverting attention into other things

      A person suffering from depression can overcome it by being more active, turning away from himself, and diverting his attention towards other people and things. The pleasure of achieving something overcomes distress or misery.
      Exercise

      Exercise also plays an important role in the treatment of depression. It not only keeps the body physically and mentally fit, but also provides recreation and mental relaxation. It is nature's best tranquilliser. Exercise also tones up the body, provides a feeling of accomplishment, and reduces the sense of helplessness.
      Relaxation and Meditation

      The patient must also learn the art of relaxation and meditation which will go a long way in curing depression. He must gain control over his nervous system and channelise his mental and emotional energies into restful activities. This can be achieved by ensuring sufficient rest and sleep under quiet conditions. Meditation will help create a balance in the nervous system. This will enable the hormonal glands to return to a correct state of hormonal balance and thereby overcome the feeling of depression.

  13. QUESTION:
    What are some natural remedies to cope with anxiety?
    what are some at home tips or exercises I can do for my panic attacks and anxiety attacks?

    • ANSWER:
      Start with lifestyle changes - a healthy, anti-anxiety diet includes plenty of fresh vegetables and fruit, as well as good quality protein. Protein in our diet provides amino acids, which help optimize levels of important neurotransmitters in the brain. You should also include healthy fats such as olive oil and coconut oil. A very important natural treatment for anxiety attacks and panic attacks is to eliminate caffeine from your diet, because caffeine (from coffee or chocolate) over stimulates the adrenal glands, which causes stress. Also try to cut down on sugar and processed foods.

      Getting plenty of exercise is another important part of a healthy lifestyle. Exercise has a calming effect on the mind as it helps to release the “feel good” hormones in the brain. It also promotes overall health and well-being and reduces stress.

      One of the simplest, yet most effective natural remedies to cope with anxiety is to learn relaxation techniques. These techniques help to reduce the stress that contributes to anxiety and panic attacks. Breathing exercises and progressive relaxation both help to calm the mind.

      Effective natural remedies for anxiety include herbal, homeopathic and Ayurvedic remedies. Some of the best herbal supplements for anxiety include valerian, passionflower, lemon balm and skullcap, which have a calming effect on the brain.

      Natural treatment for anxiety and panic disorder can also come in the form of nutritional supplements. Some nutrients and vitamins are especially beneficial for those experiencing anxiety and panic attacks. These include omega 3 fatty acids, certain amino acids such as L-theanine, GABA and L-tryptophan, minerals like magnesium and calcium, and vitamins B and C, which help the body deal with stress.

      Another way of coping with anxiety is to learning meditation. Meditation is scientifically proven to elicit a “relaxation response” by lowering blood pressure and heart rate, reducing the level of stress hormones in the body, slowing the breathing rate, and increasing the intensity of alpha waves in the brain, which produce a calm and relaxed yet alert state.

  14. QUESTION:
    Do you believe alternative medicine is better than synthetic medicine?
    alternative medicine like home remedies, Ayurvedic medine, and just herbs that can treat your symptoms. Synthetic Medicine being stuff doctors are told you you should take from pharamacuetical companies who want to profit from sick people.

    • ANSWER:
      Yes but only in the long term. Let's say if you have high blood pressure, I do believe that you can reverse that over time the natural way (if you have that kind of time).....but something immediate like a stroke or heart attack, no.

    How to cure diabetes in a young mother?
    A young mother of 24 yrs is having diabetes and she has to take insulin daily. What is the best ayurvedic, dietary or natural remedy for her? As she has to care for her baby all through the day, she is unable to do any exercise.

    • ANSWER:
      Diabetes canNOT be cured. it can only be CONTROLLED.

      Since she is taking insulin, we are not clear if she is a Type 1 or Type 2 Diabetic. Treatment will be based on what type of diabetic she is.

      Type 1 Diabetes is characterized by a complete failure of the pancreas. This most often happens in children uner the age of 18, but it is not uncommon for young adults as old as 30 to get it. Type 2 Diabetes can also turn into Type1, after many years of poor treatment.

      Type 2 Diabetes is caused by being overweight. This is most common in adults over 40, but with society's ways of eating wrong foods and failing to get exercise, Type 2 Diabetes is now showing up in children as young as 9 years old!

      And Type 2 Diabetes is VERY common if the mother had Gestational Diabetes while pregnant. In fact, a woman who has Gestational Diabetes is more than twice as likely to develop Type 2 Diabetes later in life.

      There is only ONE treatment for Type 1 Diabetes -- insulin shots. Since the body produces NO insulin, the shots are necessary, or she will die. The ONLY alternative is a risky, painful, and expensive pancreas transplant.

      Type 2 diabetes can often be controlled through diet and exercise.

      The Type 2 Diabetes MUST COMPLETELY ELIMINATE sugar from their diet. They can have NO sugar. That means no colas, sports drinks, energy drinks, canned fruit juices, candies, cakes, ice cream, pudding, doughnuts, cookies -- ANYTHING with sugar MUST be ELIMINATED from the diet.

      The patient MUST reduce the amounts of starches they eat. Eat fewer breads, crackers, pastas, rice, corn, and potatoes. It really help to get a Diabetic Cookbook, and learn what foods are starchy and what food are healthy.

      And the patient MUST get more exercise. "She has to care for her baby" is just an excuse. if she does not get more exercise she is going to be hospitalized, limtied to a wheelchair or nursing home, or die -- any of the three will leave her baby with NO care, and dying will leave the baby without a mother.

      You could do her a great service by getting off the internet and volunteering to take care of the baby while she exercises!

      THERE IS NO CURE FOR DIABETES. IF she can develop the self-discipline to change her eating habits and lifestyle, then the diabetes can be CONTROLLED, and she will live as long and as happy as a healthy perseon.

      But for the rest of her life, the diabetes will still be inside her, just waiting for her to change her diet or forget to exercise. then, the diabetes will come back, and usually stronger and more viscious than before. the results can be heart attacks, strokes, blindness, amputation, kidney failure and dialysis -- even death!

The dermatologist will numb your face and then remove layers. The recovery time takes about a couple of weeks. Your skin will scab. Once the scab falls, you will get fresh and glowing skin.

Your doctor may also apply a topical ointment for speeding up the recovery process.

      c) Augmentation
      Here, the dermatologist injects fillers usually collagen under the skin. This smoothens acne scarred area. The doctor may take fat from other places in your body and inject instead of collagen. The recovery period is fast.

      But my friend Always consult a dermatologist prior to deciding on a treatment for acne.

  22. QUESTION:
    Who is baba ramdev ? is there any proof that there is animal human bones in his medicines?
    which city is he based out of . is he an ayurvedic doctor? any body cured by his treatment . does he likes rich people ?

    • ANSWER:
      Swami Ramdev (Hindi: स्वामी रामदेव 1953 - ), also known as Baba Ramdev, is an Indian, Hindu swami. He is particularly well-known for his efforts in popularizing Yoga. His yoga (pronounced as Yog in Hindi/Sanskrit)camps are attended by a large number of people. People follow his yoga camps through TV channels and video. His yog teaching sessions are for the masses and free for all. His stated principle in life is to be of help to all and as such the sessions are conducted free of charge. He is also one of the founders of the Divya Yoga Mandir Trust that aims to popularize Yoga and offer Ayurvedic treatments.
      Swami Ramdev (Baba Ramdev) was born as Ramkishan Yadav in 1953, in Said Alipur in the Mahendragarh district of Indian state of Haryana. He attended school till the eighth grade in Shahjadpur. He then joined a aarshgurukul in Khanpur village to study Sanskrit and Yoga ("YOG" "योग" - Ramdev encourages it to be called YOG). Eventually, he entered into Sanyas (monastic living) - taking his present name.

      He then went to Jind district and joined the aarsh gurukul Kalva and offered free Yoga training to villagers across Haryana.Swami Ramdev is an active member of the Indian Nationalist RSS group and regularly deliveres speeches at RSS Rallies.

      As a child he suffered from paralysis and has stated on air that it was through Yog that he was able to regain the full functionality of his body again.

      Across various parts of India and other countries, there have been reports of thousands of people who have been cured. People who have been following his session over the television and practicing at home form the major constituent of this crowd.

      To prove the veracity of the claims, Baba Ramdev insists on old medical records taken on a periodic basis to be submitted to the trust. These reports are conducted independently and are open to the public for scrutiny.

      Use of bones in medicines

      In January 2006, the Indian Member of Parliament Brinda Karat accused the Divya Yog Mandir Trust Pharmacy, owned by Ramdev, of using human and animal bones in their medicines. She based her accusations on a report produced an Indian health ministry laboratory. She also claimed that a sample of the medicine (Kuliya Bhasm and Yauvanamrit Bati, purchased from Brahmakalp Chikitsalay, which is the Trust's hospital at Haridwar) was tested at government labs which later confirmed the presence of animal materials in the sample. She exhibited the prescription and cash receipt obtained from the medicine counter in support of her claim].

      Four samples sent to the government-recognized research center (Shriram Institute of Industrial Research, Delhi) were reported as indicating that the medicines contained no objectionable ingredients and were purely herbal. Swami Ramdev was subsequently cleared of these charges.

      Interestingly, subsequent to these allegations - sales of the Trust's ayurvedic medicines have soared.

      Guru Ramdev has planned a Rs 100-crore dream project, Patanjali Yog Peeth, at Bahadrabad, about 20km from Haridwar. According to him, "It will catapult Yoga and Ayurveda to its zenith, and lead to mental, spiritual and physical development of people". To be completed in three years, it is an ambitious project with a Yoga university, a naturopathy department which can handle 1,000 patients at a time, a residential complex for patients, a hall for 5,000 people to practise Yoga and the world’s largest hospital ward to treat 5,000 patients a day.

      KITT University, a well-respected teaching and research institute for Science and Technology, awarded Swami Ramdev with an Honorary Doctorate degree in recognition of his efforts at popularising the Vedic science of Yoga. The degree was presented to him in January 2007 during a ceremony presided over by the respected scientist and Nobel laureate Richard Ernst.

      Swamiji believes that "yog se yeh Aaryavrat desh punah Vishva guru ke garimamay pad par pratishthit hoga" ( India will again become world leader through Yoga ). He dreams of a "rog mukt Bharat Varsh aur Vishva" ( Disease free India and World ).

    what are the test to find pure shilajit?
    According to Ayurveda shilajit is a good treatment for many diseases. as you know that there are so many duplicate medicine in the market. therefore i want to know the testing of shilajit that can be done at home so that i can take pure shilajit. is there any site that give such kind of information.

    • ANSWER:
      BE VERY CAREFUL.

      Precautions
      Talbert noted in the conclusion of his monograph that "examining the list of modern indications for shilajit, one can hardly believe that it could have such a wide and varied effect on the human body." He emphasizes that no published clinical trials of shilajit have involved human subjects, so the compound's effect on people's health has not been established.
      Another concern is that most shilajit products are imported from India and not assessed for content or purity before being sold. This issue was highlighted in 2005, when Health Canada blocked the sale of shilajit capsules produced by Dabur India Ltd. because the capsules contained unhealthy amounts of heavy metals. In a July 20, 2005, press release, the Canadian health agency warned consumers that arsenic, lead and mercury are often mixed with herbs in ayurvedic medicines because the heavy metals are believed to have therapeutic properties.

    • ANSWER:
      Supplements
      Increase your intake of omega-3 fatty acids. In a 2002 review of 20 years' worth of available medical literature, titled "Omega-3 fatty acids in inflammation and autoimmune diseases," the Center for Genetics, Nutrition and Health concluded that "many of the placebo-controlled trials of fish oil in chronic inflammatory diseases reveal significant benefit, including decreased disease activity and a lowered use of anti-inflammatory drugs." The mechanism behind this is primarily the inhibition of inflammatory mediators collectively known as cytokines.

      Supplement with S-adenosylmethionine (SAM-e), a form of the amino acid methionine, which is naturally produced by the body to stimulate production of proteoglycans, proteins that form the building blocks of cartilage. Argentinean researchers who conducted a double-blind clinical trial involving 45 subjects found not only that supplementation with SAM-e was as effective as piroxicam in reducing inflammation and pain, but that relief was longer-lasting. (See Reference 2.)

      Suppress the production of excess inflammatory mediators even further by taking stinging nettle leaf extract. German researchers have found that nettle blocks the release of leukotrienes by 50% and prostaglandins by 100% within 24 hours of supplementation.

      try these remedies:
      - Two teaspoons of lemon juice and a teaspoon of honey mixed in a cup of warm water, is taken twice a day for curing arthritis.
      - Take chondroitin sulfate 700 mg. a day for strong joints and ligaments. Take it with the advice of your physician.
      - Half a teaspoon of turmeric powder with warm water should be taken twice a day.
      - One raw clove of garlic every day for 3 months is very beneficial.
      - Vitamin E protects joints and improves mobility.

  29. QUESTION:
    what are some natural home remedies for having too much gas?
    sometimes gas is painful because it does not expel from the body. how to help this problem in a natural way?

    • ANSWER:
      Avoid Foods that may cause gas which include:
      › beans
      › vegetables, such as broccoli, cabbage, brussels sprouts, onions, artichokes, and asparagus
      › fruits, such as pears, apples, and peaches
      › whole grains, such as whole wheat and bran
      › soft drinks and fruit drinks
      › milk and milk products, such as cheese and ice cream, and packaged foods prepared with lactose, such as bread,
      cereal, and salad dressing
      › foods containing sorbitol, such as dietetic foods and sugar-free candies and gums

      Treatment of dyspepsia & flatulence depends on whether it may be associated with an underlying digestion problem such as a gastric ulcer, peptic ulcer disease, or gallbladder disease. Most often, the medications prescribed can relieve symptoms.

      Medications include antacids, acid-blocking medication such as H2-receptor blocks and antibiotics if you have an H.pylori infection. If your symptoms are mild or not related to a specific disorder, your doctor may recommend changes to your diet – eating small amounts of soft foods or liquids, avoiding greasy and spicy foods and eliminating all dairy products if you are lactose intolerant.

      Natural Remedies

      Natural herbs have been used for thousands of years to treat and prevent digestive irritation and discomfort. A combination of herbal ingredients are a therapeutic measure to cure indigestion and support liver and gallbladder functioning. Not only are they safe and gentle to use on the body, but also a far more suitable substitute to antacids.

      Zingiber officinale (Ginger) is a wonderful herb, traditionally used in Chinese and Ayurvedic (Indian) medicine and is highly effective in relieving the symptoms of nausea, vomiting, indigestion, flatulence and dizziness.

      Two well known herbs known as Foeniculum vulgare (fennel) and Mentha piperita (mint) have anti-inflammatory and anti-spasmodic that calms and soothes the digestive system. In addition, Pelargonium graveolens (stomach pain bush) is also an effective calmative and anti-spasmodic herb, reducing stomach cramps and pain.

      Dental care & mouth care.

      After every meal, chew a little salt and gargle with water. Soft brush can be used to clean the particles caught between the teeth and the gums. Make it habit to clean the teeth every morning and before retiring to bed. In India, people use thin twig of a Babul, Banyan or a Neem tree (known as Datoon) as a brush. First it is to be crushed to make it soft and then use it like a brush. It is advisable to us a Datoon of Babul, Banyan or Neem tree at least once a day.

      It is reported by experienced dentists that tooth pastes available in the marked are not much effective. Instead, the following tooth powder or paste which can be easily made at home has been found quite useful for the care of gums and teeth :

      1. Tooth Powder : Mixture of finely ground alum powder 40% and rock salt or regular salt powder 60%. For better results, a few drops of lemon may be added. In case of dental problems, adding a little of 'Sudarshan' (a bitter Ayrvedic powder is also recommended.

      2. Tooth-paste : For dental problems like bleeding, pyorrhoea, toothache,gingivitis, etc. make a paste of

      50% alum powder
      10% rock salt or table salt powder
      10% Sudarshan powder (an Ayurvedic preparation)
      15% edible oil (unrefined)
      10% glycerine tanic acid
      5% camphor.

      The paste made of this mixture can be massaged on the teeth and gums in the morning and evening with fingers. It ca be packed in collapsible tubes/jars and used, as tooth-paste.

      3. Even massaging the gums with a mixture of 70% unrefined edible oil (seasame or groundnut or coconut), 15% glycerine tanic acid and 15% fine powder of rock salt or table salt is useful for good, healthy teeth and gums. Make it a daily habit. Please not that healthy gums are more useful than sparkling white teeth.

      4. Mouth Freshener : Gargling with a lemon juice mixed with lukewarm water, freshens the mouth. Take a quarter of a lemon, massage it on teeth and gums and then gargle with water. Even chewing of mango, tulsi or betel leaves after meals is good, and so it is advised in India.

      5. Exercises for teeth : Keep the lips closed. Pound the upper teeth on lower teeth for 30 to 40 times twice a day. Then massage the saliva on gums with the tongue. That will ensure proper blood circulation in teeth and increase the life of healthy teeth and gums.

  31. QUESTION:
    What exactly is a cleanser when dealing with acne?
    I was told to use a cleanser for my ance. What is it? Is it the same thing as a astringent?

    • ANSWER:
      A face wash or an astringent; Witchazel and unfiltered apple cider are actually the best to use.

      Stress levels, hormones & genetics can all contribute to acne development, so often times it takes more than a magic potion to get rid of it. Here are some natural remedies you can do at home that worked for me:

      STOP eating and drinking foods with refined or artificial sugars, like high fructose corn syrup, crystalline fructose or aspartame/phenylalanine. Up your vitamins C, E, K & A; Omega-3's, antioxidants; Flax seed & extra-virgin olive & coconut oils: swallow a spoonful a day. Do some exercise like dancing or yoga. Get a little sun everyday, no more than 10 minutes if you have a light complexion. Drink more water. Try using witchazel as a toner during the day, and unfiltered apple cider vinegar at night.

      A raw potato is cheap and brilliant acne natural cure, especially for whiteheads. The vitamin C makes your skin glow, and alkaline in the potato kills the bacteria on your face. The potato also has an exfoliating effect helping you to get rid of dead skin cells. Papaya fruit produces similar effect; you should also use it raw. (Make sure the potato isn't genetically modified!)

      A wash of milk with lime is a great treatment for blackheads. First bring a glass of milk to a gentle boil, and then add juice from half a lime. When the milk cools down it makes a great face wash. You can store it in the fridge for a couple days. (Make sure the milk doesn't come from cattle that have been treated with rBGH)

  32. QUESTION:
    What's the best thing to do if your child is having constant nosebleeds when the weather is hot?
    Is there a cure for this? Is there anyone out there with medical knowledge that can give me a serious answer to this important question as I am obviously worried about my child? I'm particularly interested in getting actual solutions rather than "go the doctor" type answers. At the moment, my child has been on iron supplements for four years as he loses a lot of blood thru' the nose.

    • ANSWER:
      I am sorry about your son's sufferings. Your son seems to be a grown up kid now and I am sure he will understand and follow some simple advises from you. Please make your son to understand that whenever he gets to know that he is bleeding, ask him to simply lie down flat facing the sky in order to stop the flow of blood. He should wipe out the blood and keep the nose clean. Please provide him with some extra clothing if he has to attend school. Put few drops of lemon leaves juice into his nostrils and if the leaves are not available, keep a bottle of almond oil at home and put few drops in his nostrils daily. Apply almond oil on his head and massage daily and apply sandal wood paste on his forehead daily. Aloe Vera juice or gel will help to a great extent. Please give him few dried raisins to eat daily to get more iron. If your son drinks milk, add little turmeric powder before boiling. During summer, ask your son to go for frequent showers and stay indoors. There are some good and effective Ayurvedic medicines available for this kind of ailment namely, Bol Baddh Ras tablets and Usheerasav (By Baidyanath) but the doses will be explained later because I am not aware of his age. If you trust my words, please do write to me on close2health@yahoo.com giving detailed history of your son's sickness, his age, location (Your country) and eating habits, so that I can prescribe best treatment for him. Take care of your child and let the mother and child be in good health.

  33. QUESTION:
    How to treat razor burn on legs?
    So I forgot to shave my legs before showering yesterday, and I made a dumb decision to shave without applying any lotion, water, or shaving cream! Super bad call, I know. I'm never doing that again.

    Anyways, what are some things I can do to help my leg heal? I have razor burn and minor cuts on the side of my leg. Thanks for helping!

    • ANSWER:
      If the skin on your legs are covered in small, red bumps every time you shave, you may have razor bumps. Razor bumps, also known as ingrown hairs, shaving bumps or razor burn, can occur anywhere you shave or wax. By switching up your shaving routine and applying products to soothe the skin, you may be able to reduce the appearance of shaving bumps on the skin. If your skin is severely infected or painful, your condition may require a doctor's care.
      Step 1
      Stop shaving, recommends the Mayo Clinic in the article "Ingrown Hair: Treatments and Drugs." Leaving the bumps alone will allow your irritated skin to heal and any ingrown hairs to emerge.

      Step 2
      Apply a moisturizing lotion after shaving to soothe the skin and prevent razor bumps from getting worse. If you must continue shaving, applying a moisturizing lotion immediately after you shave may soothe the skin to prevent any further damage.
      Step 3
      Treat the legs with an over-the-counter 2.5 or 5 percent benzoyl peroxide acne medication once a day, suggests Dr. Evelyn Placek, a dermatologist and doctor of internal medicine in private practice in Scarsdale, New York, in the book "The Doctors Book of Home Remedies for Women." Consult your dermatologist to determine where and how often you should apply the medication to treat your particular condition. The medication may both minimize existing razor bumps and preventing new ones from returning.
      Step 4
      Use a prescription retinoid cream to exfoliate the skin and allow ingrown hairs to emerge from the skin. Use retinoid cream exactly as instructed by your dermatologist.
      Step 5
      Get electrolysis if shaving bumps are so severe you are unable to get rid of them. Electrolysis removes the hair follicle, preventing the hair from growing. Electrolysis may help individuals with persistent ingrown hairs.

  34. QUESTION:
    My father is suffering from hemiplegia. what is the treatment?He sleeps around 18hrs a day. what does it mean?
    its already a month now. He hasn't started moving his left limbs at all. Please let me know the physiotherapy that can be applicable to my father in such condition. will ayurvedic treatment be helpful for this?

    • ANSWER:
      The problem in hemiplegia is that one part of the brain is affected. Usually the cause is poor or no blood flow to a major part of the brain. The side of the brain affected is the one opposite the side of the body manifesting symptoms usually.
      While I can understand your concern, there isn't much that I can offer to you other than general principles of care.
      The most important problems are of infection, nutrition and overall deterioration in physical condition.
      Nutrition:
      If he is able to swallow without difficulty then you should encourage oral feeds.
      If he coughs when he attempts to eat anything, he will probably need to be fed through a nasogastric(NG) tube. These may be kept for 2-3 weeks, though most physicians recommend changing it more frequently.
      The body loses a lot of protein when it is not physically active. Therefore he will require protein supplementation on a daily basis.
      Infection:
      The bane of stroke patients is infection.
      The commonest infections are Urinary Tract Infections(UTIs), Respiratory Tract Infections(RTIs) and infection of bed sores.
      Patients suffer much more due to the infections rather than the paralysis per se.
      For patients with an indwelling Foley's catheter, it should be changed at least fortnightly.
      Those on an external/ condom catheter:
      Ensure that the condom is affixed properly and is secure. However, if it is too tight it will cause decrease in the blood supply to the penis by acting like a tourniquet. Moreover, when it is removed the skin is likely to peel off with the adhesive, creating an ulcer and increased risk of infection.
      If it is too loose urine will leak , wetting the bed. This increases the chances of developing a bed/pressure sore.
      The key is to ensure that any such problem is addressed at the initial stage itself.
      Patients with hemiplegia are often unable to breathe deeply.
      Further, they remain in the same position for extended periods of time. This causes pooling of lung secretions at the bottom of the lungs. This is fertile breeding ground for many different types of organisms. Net result- pneumonia. This could potentially be life threatening.
      Solution? Regular vigorous chest physiotherapy. This is easy to perform at home without formal training or risk of complications. The secretions should not be allowed to accumulate inside. They should be brought out by coughing.
      Pressure sores:
      These develop when the body is placed in the same position for extended periods of time. The blood supply to the weight bearing parts of the body- back of the head, back of the elbows and shoulders, buttocks, back of the heels (pressure points) gradually decreases to the extent that the tissue there starts to die. The first sign is redness over the affected area.
      Solution?
      Frequent change of position (every 2 hours is usually adequate).
      For existing small sized sores, daily dressing and non weight bearing- distribute the pressure over a larger area by using a water bed or cushions- should work well.
      Large sores may require skin grafting also, and once infected , may lead to sepsis.
      A water bed is a cheap alternative to an alpha bed, and may be available for Rs.1000/- as compared to Rs.4000/- for the latter.
      General physical condition:
      Most stroke patients tend to sleep a lot. This is because of the damage to the brain. With recovery the duration of sleep will slowly return to normal. However, sudden excessive sleepiness in a previously awake patient may indicate hyponatremia- low serum sodium.
      Recovery is generally very slow( may take anywhere from 6 months to upwards of 1 year) and may never be complete.
      However, one can aid recovery by doing the following things:
      Passive movements of the affected limbs.This means that you hold any one limb in your hands and duplicate the normal movements possible at that joint- bending and straightening, for example. Do this for all limbs 2-3 times a day for 5 minutes per limb. This will prevent the joints from becoming stiff. It may also help reduce protein loss due to disuse atrophy.
      Encourage him to try and move his limbs by himself.
      While he is sleeping you may play soft soothing music to him by placing ear plugs or head phones over his ears. A radio also would work just fine. Alternately, the family could take turns to talk to him.
      Ayurvedic treatment in the form of massages might help. However, I don't know enough about Ayurveda to comment on it.
      I suggest that you take your Doctor into confidence before taking any decisions in this regard.

  36. QUESTION:
    Decent homemade hairmasks for curly hair?
    I am interested in natural hair-masks and I enjoy making them but wondered if there are any decent recipies for curly hair to stop hair going weak and drying out? :-) Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      While you can't cure split ends or breakage, you can treat and moisturize dry or damaged hair. Expensive deep conditioning treatments at home or the salon are one option, but you can also make your own hair masks with ingredients commonly found in your refrigerator. Natural hair masks for dry or damaged hair can restore shine and softness to your hair by providing protein and moisture.
      Procedure
      Mix up the mask you prefer, then apply. Natural hair masks can be used on dry or damp hair. Apply masks with a hair dye applicator brush, available at beauty supply shops, and then wrap in a plastic wrap or a towel. Allow the mask to sit on the hair for at least 20 to 30 minutes. Make natural hair masks right before you use them, and discard any excess. Most masks will need to be shampooed out of your hair. Follow with your normal conditioner.
      Honey
      Honey is a popular ingredient in many natural hair conditioners and treatments. Honey's natural moisturizing properties make it ideal for the scalp, particularly if you suffer from a flaky or irritated scalp. To make a honey mask to give shine to your hair, combine 3 to 6 tbsp. of honey with 1 to 2 tbsp. of jojoba oil. Apply to your entire head, then rinse in warm water. Honey may be added to other natural hair masks, including oil- or fruit-based treatments, to help with scalp health.
      Eggs
      Eggs are a good choice if you have damaged hair. Hair is built of protein, so adding protein can improve the softness and shine. Beat two whole eggs and add 5 tsp. of olive oil. Work this mixture through the hair. Or defrizz your hair by combining mayonnaise and beaten egg. Always rinse egg-based masks using cool or lukewarm water to avoid cooking the egg in your hair.
      Oil
      Olive oil or coconut oil is good especially if you have dry or curly hair. Combine oil with lemon juice, honey or yogurt for a moisturizing hair mask. A honey and oil mask can soothe an irritated scalp, while equal parts lemon juice and olive oil is a traditional ayurvedic hair treatment. You can also use oil alone to create a homemade hot oil treatment. Oil-based masks work best if you apply heat, either by wrapping your head in plastic wrap or sitting under a hood dryer.
      Fruit
      Fruits, including bananas, strawberries and avocado, are all good for the hair. Combine mashed avocado with a bit of olive oil and honey to help condition your hair and keep your scalp healthy. Combine strawberries with egg and olive oil in your food processor for a good all-around natural hair mask.

I experience exterme rapid heart rate with any exertion

    • ANSWER:
      Hi There

      Not sure on the different stages, but here are some ideas on how to plan on getting healthier.

      Natural Cures

      Note: While all of the following therapies and self-care approaches can significantly relieve emphysema symptoms over time, they will be of little avail if you continue to smoke and/or be exposed to secondhand smoke.

      Aromatherapy: Inhaling the steamed vapors of the essential oils of eucalyptus and pine can help relieve symptoms of emphysema, as can massaging the essential oils of cedarwood, eucalyptus, or peppermint into the chest once or twice each day.

      Ayurvedic Medicine: To help ease emphysema symptoms, Ayurvedic physicians recommend boiling two to three cloves of raw, organic garlic in water. Once the cloves become tender, crush them, add to the water and drink the entire mixture in order to relief chest pain and ease breathing.

      Diet: If you suffer from emphysema, you need to be screened for food allergies and sensitivities, and then avoid eating those foods you are allergic or sensitive to. In addition, avoid all sugar and sugar products, wheat and wheat byproducts, soy products, soft drinks, commercially processed foods, and all foods containing artificial ingredients, such as additives, colorings, flavorings, and preservatives (BHA, BHT, sodium nitrite, sulfites, saccharin, aspartame, and cyclamates, to name a few). Also minimize your intake of milk and dairy products, and coffee and other caffeine products, as well as red meat, salt, refined carbohydrates (white breads, pastries, commercial pastas), corn, chocolate, and unhealthy fats (hydrogenated or trans fats).

      Drink plenty of pure, filtered water; at least eight ounces every two hours. For best results, add fresh squeezed lemon juice and a dash of cayenne pepper, making sure to brush your teeth afterwards so the acid from the citrus is not allowed to sit on the teeth. In addition, enjoy freshly made organic vegetable juices throughout the day, as well as hot broths and soups. Diluted organic pear juice can loosen up lung congestion. As part of your daily diet, emphasize organic, whole foods, especially plenty of fresh, raw organic fruits and vegetables, preferably soaked nuts and seeds, organic, free-range meats and poultry, and wild-caught fish. Garlic, cayenne pepper, chili peppers, horseradish, mustard, and onions should be eaten regularly, due to their powerful health benefits for the lungs and overall respiratory system. Organic, extra virgin olive oil should be used liberally. Organic grapes and fresh grape juice can be effective, as well.

      Herbs: Useful herbs for managing emphysema symptoms include coltsfoot tea and thyme, both of which can help reduce the buildup of mucus and sputum in the lungs and respiratory tract. Peppermint tea can also be used for this purpose. Anise oil mixed with honey can be helpful when taken before each meal. Ephedra can help reduce coughing and bronchial spasms, while mullein can aid in eliminating fluid buildup in the lungs and fighting and preventing associated infection. Other useful herbs include comfrey, fennel seed, fenugreek, licorice root, red poppy flowers, rosehips, rosemary, slippery elm, violet, and white horehound.

      Homeopathy: The homoepathic remedies Aspidosperma and Carbo vegetabilis can help to ease symptoms of emphysema.

      Hydrotherapy: Hydrotherapy is the application of water, ice, steam and hot and cold temperatures to maintain and restore health. Treatments include full body immersion, steam baths, saunas, sitz baths, colonic irrigation and the application of hot and/or cold compresses. Hydrotherapy is effective for treating a wide range of conditions and can easily be used in the home as part of a self-care program. Many Naturopathic Physicians, Physical Therapists and Day Spas use Hydrotherapy as part of treatment. I suggest several at-home hydrotherapy treatments.

      *Purified water is essential for any hydrotherapy treatment. The section Remedies for Treating Chlorinated Bath Water offers clear instructions and recommendations.

      Juice Therapy: The following juice combinations can be helpful for relieving symptoms: Carrot, celery, potatoes, spinach, wheatgrass, watercress, and one clove of garlic; barley juice with a clove of squeezed garlic; and the combined juices of grape, orange, lemon, and black currant.

      Improving Indoor Air Quality: Improving the quality of your indoor air, both at home and at work, is an essential self-care step for helping to treat and prevent respiratory conditions, including bronchitis. Healthy air is warm, free of pollutants and odors, has a relative humidity of between 35 to 60 percent, and is high in oxygen and negative ions (3,000 to 6,000 negative ions per cubic centimeter). Today’s technology makes it easy to ensure that your indoor air meets the above criteria. A negative ion generator can not only increase the oxygen and negative ion content of indoor air, but can also cleanse it of harmful animal dander, bacteria, dust, mold, pollen, and viruses. Moreover, negative ions help to soothe and repair damaged mucosa of the nasal, lung, and bronchial pathways. For best results, choose a self-regulating negative ion generator that emits at least one trillion negative ions per second.

      You should also use a humidifier to keep your indoor air moist, especially during winter months, when air tends to be drier. Choose a warm mist unit. Adding plants to your home and work environments can also help keep air moist. Certain plants, such as chrysanthemums, philodendron, and spider plants, can also help to keep your air free of circulating dust and microorganisms, since they act as natural air filters.

      Also be sure that your home and work environments are properly ventilated, and avoid the use of synthetic materials in your home and workplace, including plastics.

      Lifestyle: Avoid exposure to secondhand smoke and excessively cold or dry air. Also make it a point to get plenty of good sleep each night, sleeping in an environment that is free of dust and contains warm, moist air.

      Nutritional Supplements: Useful nutrients for emphysema include vitamin C, vitamin B6, vitamin B12, vitamin C, vitamin E, chlorophyll, coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10), folic acid, lecithin, and the amino acids L-cysteine, L-methionine, and L-glutathione, and

      Stop Smoking: If you smoke, seek help in order to quit. (See Addictions for more information.)

      Alternative Professional Care
      The following therapies can also help to prevent and relieve emphysema: Acupressure, Acupuncture, Biofeedback Training and Neurotherapy, Bodywork (Reflexology, Rofling, Shiatsu), Chelation Therapy, Energy Medicine, Guided Imagery, Magnet Therapy, Mind/Body Medicine, Naturopathic Medicine, Osteopathic Medicine, Qigong, Tai Chi, Traditional Chinese Medicine, and Yoga.

      Best of health to you

      Cheers

      Eliminate polyunsaturated vegetable oils, margarine, vegetable shortening, all partially hydrogenated oils that might contain trans-fatty acids, all foods that might contain trans-fatty acids (such as deep-fried foods).
      Use extra-virgin olive oil as your main fat.
      Increase intake of omega-3 fatty acids.
      Always drink plenty of water to keep your respiratory tract secretions more fluid.
      Experiment with eliminating (one at a time) wheat, corn, soy and sugar for six to eight weeks to see if the condition improves.
      Eat ginger and turmeric regularly for their anti-inflammatory effects.
      Have some manipulative work done on the chest to break up restrictive patterns in nerves and muscles that develop in chronic asthma. The best systems I know for this are osteopathic manipulation, especially from a practitioner of cranial therapy, and Rolfing, a form of deep-tissue massage.
      Minimize contact with respiratory irritants, such as smoke, dust, molds, and volatile chemicals. Remove sources of offending materials from your home, install a good air filtration system, or consider moving if the air is generally bad where you live. Experiment with living in other locations: in high mountains, the desert, or near the seacoast. Asthma may improve greatly with a change of climate.
      In adults, GERD (acid reflux disease) may be an underlying cause of asthma. In such cases, successful treatment of the digestive problem will often clear up the asthma.
      Experiment with traditional Chinese medicine and Ayurvedic medicine (the traditional healing system of India). These systems are sometimes able to offer significant help through more specific dietary adjustments and herbal treatments.
      Here are some specific recommendations for exercise-induced asthma:

      Warm up very slowly to the point where you almost feel the "tightness" associated with exercise-induced asthma. Then stop and stretch or, if you're exercising vigorously, slow down. By taking this break, you often can block the development of asthmatic symptoms. You can then go back to your normal pace. This may take some getting used to, but can sometimes eliminate the need for medication.
      Try breath work. The most effective approaches are pranayama techniques (breath control exercises taught in some yoga classes). You can do these after the initial warm-up when symptoms are almost felt. For beginners, start with "The Relaxing Breath," a technique I describe in my books and on this Web site.
      Find a form of physical activity that minimizes your exercise-induced symptoms. Sports or activities that have intermittent rest periods (such as tennis, softball, and golf) can allow you to regain control of your breathing. Swimming may be better than running outdoors in cold weather, but no type of exercise is off-limits with proper treatment. In fact, some of the world's top athletes have exercise-induced asthma, and they're still able to compete successfully in Olympic-level events.
      Good luck and God bless you

  47. QUESTION:
    How to get rid of bad acne?
    I have really bad acne and I've tried a bunch of stuff how do I get rid of it?

    • ANSWER:
      STOP eating and drinking foods with refined or artificial sugars, like high fructose corn syrup, crystalline fructose or aspartame/phenylalanine. Up your vitamins C, E, K & A; Omega-3's, antioxidants; Flax seed & extra-virgin olive & coconut oils: swallow a spoonful a day. Do some exercise like dancing or yoga. Get a little sun everyday, no more than 10 minutes if you have a light complexion. Drink more water. Try using witchazel as a toner during the day, and unfiltered apple cider vinegar at night.

      A raw potato is cheap and brilliant acne natural cure, especially for whiteheads. The vitamin C makes your skin glow, and alkaline in the potato kills the bacteria on your face. The potato also has an exfoliating effect helping you to get rid of dead skin cells. Papaya fruit produces similar effect; you should also use it raw. (Make sure the potato isn't genetically modified!)

      A wash of milk with lime is a great treatment for blackheads. First bring a glass of milk to a gentle boil, and then add juice from half a lime. When the milk cools down it makes a great face wash. You can store it in the fridge for a couple days. (Make sure the milk doesn't come from cattle that have been treated with rBGH)

  48. QUESTION:
    name the successful medicine of fissure and fistulla?
    I feel irritation in my anus while i pass stool and seen that there is some injury occured in anal like fissure and fistulla. But there is no bleeding . Pl. suggest me some successful medicine.

    • ANSWER:
      Piles
      Piles are either dry or bleeding and often caused by chronic constipation, hard and knotty slots, intake of spices, wines, meats and also by poor or absent physical activity. Dry piles are more painful, while bleeding piles render a person weaker. Pregnant ladies, elderly persons, sedentary persons who eat enormously and quite often but do no exercise, or the person taking above-mentioned dietary items, are more prone to piles. Persistent complaint may cause other complications also, such as fissures, cancerous growths, pain, swelling, smarting etc.
      Types of Piles
      Dry piles - In dry piles there is inflammation of the external piles, continuous pain and become unbearable while voiding the bowels.
      Bleeding piles - In bleeding piles, the internal piles start bleeding and there may be excessive bleeding which lead to anaemia and consequent emaciation.
      Causes
      A person suffers from piles when the anal region veins become varicose. The prime causes of piles are:
      Constipation
      Sedentary way of life
      Lack of exercise
      Some morbid conditions of the liver.
      Ayurvedic Home Remedies
      Use oil of Cypress or Juniper in the bath or using some drops of either to a bowl of cold water for improving circulation. Abdomen should be massaged with a 2% oil dilution, to any vegetable oil used as a base oil of Rosemary or Marjoram.
      Apply locally commercial creams processed from the extracts of -
      (i) Morse chestmt (Aescutus hippocastanum)
      (ii) Pilecort (Ranunculus ficaria) or Marigold (Calendula officinalis).
      Tincture of distilled witch Hazel (Hamamelis Virginiana) is astringent and can be safely used as a compress. It will also provide relief in prolonged bleeding which can also be prevented by using tea prepared from Nettle (Urtica Deocca).
      All the ointments or cream are available from homeopath pharmacists retailers. Remember, frequent and profuse bleeding is liable to cause general weakness and anaemia also, hence don't let it prolong.
      Use of caster oil with milk or 1 TSP with a warm cup of tea or, still better, Isabghole Husk (1 TSP) with warm milk will help in softening stool and thus, cause easy and almost painless passage thereof.
      Alternative is to take a tea spoon of Triphala with water at bed-time. It shows its effects.
      Precaution
      The patient should be advised not to use a hard seat or ride horses during the course of treatment. He should not indulge in too much sex, nor suppress the urge to void the stools for fear of pain which accompanies dry piles.

  49. QUESTION:
    What are the differences between a facial, bleach and face massage? Which one is best for a guy?

    • ANSWER:
      In facial they steam your face, massage it, scrub it and then apply a face pack. This is done to get rid of blackheads n make the skin glow. This glow lasts for 1 week till my experience shows.

      Bleach is done to make the facial or any body hair to look lighter as black ones look bad. It also removes a bit of face tan n makes u look just a bit fairer.

      Face massage is just like simple massage- a massage cream or at ayurvedic places, some oils are used and your face is massaged in a scientific way. This improves the blood circulation of face n hence if done regularly it can make your skin glowy n flawless.

      I would say massage is enough not just for u but for everyone. Bleach- if u dont wanna get a shade fairer then i dont think u need it. Instead of facial just apply some home mask once a week,if u like. I never go for saloon treatments or even spend money on anythng cosmetic except a suncreen n a facewash.
      Hope this helps. Good luck handsome ;)

  50. QUESTION:
    Is it ok to put on home remedies externally while on accutane?

    • ANSWER:
      Hi Slkfj

      Here are some of those ideas to heal the issue. You shouldnt need the drug, if you can follow most of these steps.

      Here are some ideas to heal the issue.

      Quick Action Plan for Acne

      1. Massage your skin, where needed, with bergamot, camphor, geranium, juniper, lavender, or neroli essential oils.

      2. Ayurvedic practitioners recommend making a paste of ½ tsp each of turmeric and sandalwood paste with enough water, and applying to pimples. Also, drink half a cup of aloe vera juice twice daily until acne clears.

      3. Eat an organic whole foods diet, with plenty of organic cooked and raw vegetables, and whole fruits. Reduce animal fats and stressor foods such as caffeine, refined sugars, and alcohol, as well as colas, candies, and frozen and processed foods. Include more high fiber foods.

      4. Drink eight glasses of pure, filtered water daily. Also, daily have two glasses of raw juice, combining carrot, beet, and celery juice, or, carrot, cucumber, and lettuce (not iceberg), and spinach, with carrot predominating.

      5. Add 3-5 drops of crab apple flower essence to pure water and drink during the day. Rescue Remedy® is good for stress.

      6. Combine the tinctures of herbs such as sarsaparilla, burdock, and cleavers in equal parts, taking ½ tsp three times a day. Drink an infusion of nettle several times a day and apply tea tree oil topically. An infusion of calendula mixed with equal parts of distilled witch hazel can be used as a cleansing wash. Steam sauna your face with red clover, lavender, and strawberry leaves.

      7. Useful homeopathy remedies are Pulsatilla, Silicea, Berberis, Ledum, Sulfur, Arsen alb., Belladonna, and/or Carbo veg.

      8. Enjoy full body immersion hydrotherapy treatments such as steam baths, saunas, sitz baths, colonic irrigation, hot and/or cold compresses, and steam sauna your face with red clover, lavender, and strawberry leaves.

      9. Useful supplements are vitamin A, beta carotene, vitamin B complex, vitamin B6, vitamin C, vitamin E, and zinc. Also include omega-3 fatty acids, brewer's yeast, chlorophyll, and pancreatic enzymes with meals.

      10. Expose your face to sun and air at least 30 minutes a day, and exercise daily. Keep your skin clean by washing your face three times a day with soap made from the herb calendula officinalis, or using other alternatives to soap. Rinse with warm water and pat dry. Squeezing pimples or whiteheads may cause infection. Keep the skin free of oil and use water-based products. Get sufficient sleep.

      11. Make facial masks from natural products; leave on overnight to help dry the skin if acne is caused by excess oil.

      12. For long term relief and health be sure to do a colon cleanse. This clears out the toxins in the blood and excess waste in the body. Colon cleansing will healp clear up a lot of issue, expecially acne.

      Cause
      Acne may be worsened at adolescence, during the pre-menstrual and/or mid-menstrual cycle due to hormonal action, and when under stress, on contraceptives, eating a poor diet that causes an over acidic system, or taking prescription and non-prescription drugs.

      Blackheads can form when the oil combines with skin pigments and gets trapped. Blackheads may suggest the need for better hygiene, or magnesium and vitamin A. Chronic, numerous whiteheads can also form during acne outbreaks, suggesting vitamin B1 deficiency or absorption problems. Consistent raised spots on the outside of the arms and sometimes even the thighs, resembling "chicken skin," may suggest need for magnesium, vitamin A, or essential fatty acids or the need to avoid foods that inhibit the absorption of these nutrients, such as trans-fatty acids found in margarine and hydrogenated oils, such as cottonseed oil and palm kernel oil.

      Food allergies, allergies to facial creams, soaps, shampoos, makeup, and excess intake of refined sugars, can all cause or contribute to acne. Certain foods can also aggravate acne conditions because of their high-acid forming effects on the body, especially fried foods, trans fats, iodized salt, alcohol, hot and spicy foods, all processed foods, chocolate, fruit juices, carbonated beverages, caffeinated beverages, and dairy products. Excessive long-term intake of seafood or other high iodine foods may also cause acne in some people.

      Coexisting gum problems suggest the need for folic acid. A separate acne condition may occur in women 30-40 years old due to physical exercising or working all day with face makeup, lowered resistance due to stress, or hyper-response to bacteria or hormone problems. Another acne problem, acne rosacea (reddish spots in a pattern over nose and cheeks), may be a sign of low B vitamins or low hydrochloric acid in the stomach.

      Best of health to you
