Toothache

We all experienced toothache at least once in our lifetime.Toothache can be felt and it can hurt every part of your body.  I have had quite a few when I was a teenager and it was so bad that they made me sick. I had two of my grinders removed due to tooth decay and the cavity was large and deep. Since then I never had a severe toothache but had few small ones now and then. Toothache can irritate a person, can distract a person from what they are doing, and also can cause sleeplessness.

Prevention is always is better. To avoid toothache, it is always take few preventive steps. Cleaning the teeth after food is one of the best thing to do. Brushing the teeth before bedtime is another important thing to do to prevent tooth decay. Having clean, healthy teeth and strong gum is always an asset.

When I was young we used to crush the rock salt and clean our teeth with our fingers. I have also used herbal tooth powder like “Gopal Tooth Power” which is still available in the market and people are still using them.

Gopal Tooth Powder

Gopal Tooth Powder

Gopal Tooth Powder packet contains dried herbs that are formulated from Siddha medicine. The ancient formula in Gopal Tooth Powder contains mild but effective herbal abrasives which will gently remove stubborn stains.

Remedy for toothache:

There few things my mother gave us to get rid of the toothache. She taught us to goggle salt water couple of times and do one of the following. Add one table spoon of salt to a glass of water to make a strong cleaner. 

1. Chewing cloves and parking it where the rotten tooth can relieve the pain immediately.

2. Chewing fresh garlic will work wonders. Though you may have a bad breathe, you tooth ache will vanish temporarily.

3. Chewing fresh ginger can temporarily relieve the pain.

4. Years ago we could buy tooth tincture. Keeping the cotton dipped in tooth tincture can relieve the pain.

5. Applying crushed aspirin directly on the affected tooth will also reduce the pain.

6. Applying cotton soaked in clove oil to the affected tooth reduce the pain.

7. The last but not the least is orajel, it is a must for every household first aid box.

These are some of the remedies that I have collected from my mother over the years. My mother also said that these remedies are temporary and we should find out the root cause of the toothache and eliminate them. She always urged us to go the healthcare professionals to get medical help.

Nowadays there are very good toothpastes available in the market that is good for the teeth, plenty of varieties to choose from. Most of these toothpastes contain fluoride, a toxin and the effect of fluoride may be disputed. Study so far states that the benefit of fluoride far outweighs its danger. Some health conscious people are ditching toothpaste containing fluoride in favour of fluoride free brands. The choice is yours to choose, our ultimate aim is to have strong healthy teeth and gums.

Remedy for Constipation

Constipation is a condition that may lead to many severe health issues. We intake a lot of food and other items into our body and the waste is removed from our body by urine and bowel moment. If the urine is yellow, it is a sign that our body is dehydrated and needs liquid. Once we drink water the colour of the urine is normal and problem is solved. It is necessary to have 9 to 13 classes of water a day. It is not like that in bowel movement. If the solid waste is not removed from our system, it can do a lot of harm to our body.

These wastes can definitely a cause to build bad bacteria in our body and may cause cancer. Simply put imagine what happens to your garbage bin if you don’t empty it for weeks! I am not a medical professional and most of these are what my mother used to practice on us and taught us over the years. My mother used to say that we should have a bowel movement at least once a day.

constipationCauses of constipation:

There are many other reasons for constipation, there is a whole list that can cause constipation.

Remedies for constipation:

  • Must have enough fiber intake in your daily diet. Nuts, oats, fruits, vegetables whole wheat are rich in fiber. Apples and oranges are good source.
  • Drink a lot of water daily. Coffee, cola are drinks but they dehydrate so avoid them when possible and drink a lot of water for a change.
  • Castor oil consumption is good for bowel movement. Can also be used as laxative.
  • Try to have enough exercise daily. Being active will help reduce constipation.
  • Add ginger and garlic to your daily diet.
  • Have ginger tea very frequently.

Most of the above are my mother’s treatments. When we were small my mother used to give us two black pills that she made out of herbs that I don’t know. She normally gave this to us on Friday nights so that we will be home for a good run to the washroom the next day. I wish I know what was in those pills! I vividly remember taking two to three spoonful of castor oil. That can make you run to the wash room too. Take a little in the beginning to see whether you are okay with castor oil before you take three spoonful at a time. In this modern age it is very difficult to live without technology in our hand but for your own good health leave all the technology on the dresser when you are returning the nature’s call.  

There are many things that my mother taught us over the years to treat small ailments and live a healthy, happy life. I will be writing more as I remember them.

Shower

Why Daily Shower is Important

In this modern developed world, our body is bombarded with lots of foreign material in and out of our system. These can add and accumulate heavy toxins in our body. Foreign materials such as smoke from smokers, smoke from automobiles, chemicals in our vegetables, chemical compounds in the form of preservatives in our food in the day today lifestyles and chemicals from these foods and radioactive material in the air can cause quite a lot of health problems. It is very difficult, should I say impossible for us to change the world but we can change ourselves to live a healthy life. We can add few things or modify our lifestyle that will make a great impact on our health resulting in healthy living. One of the modification should be having a daily shower.

Why daily shower is important:

Showering daily is important for healthy living. The benefit of showering is mainly to remove all the toxic materials that were pushed out of our body by way of sweating. Some other benefits of showering are to clean our body from dirt and odors and clear off all the dead skin cells.  Simply put, people shower to feel clean from dirt, smell fresh from sweat, and re-energized or relaxed.

Shower

Shower

‘A vigorous daily shower would disturb the natural bug flora of the skin as well as skin oils,’ revealed John Oxford, Professor of Virology at Queen Mary’s School of Medicine and Dentistry. So when you have daily shower you need to be careful not to rub vigorously and never to use strong soap or chemical rich shampoos. It is okay to have a shower without any soap too if you wish.

My mother always said cold or tepid water shower is always the best. She also taught us the “art” of shower. Yes showering is an art in itself. It is very definitely not a cultural issue or personnel preference. It is a must daily routine. You must shower daily, twice if you can and if you are living in a hot humid place. Once in the morning before leaving for whatever you are doing and another before bedtime. There is an old saying “an apple a day will keep the doctors away”. Same way a shower a day too will keep the doctors away.

Benefit of shower:

Showering cleans our body of foreign materials, showering keeps the body and the perspiration odor away and showering maintains our body temperature. Few more benefits of showering are:

  • Stimulate the immune system.
  • Keep the skin healthy.
  • Improve the blood circulation.
  • When you are stressed out, go and have a shower. You will feel calm, so shower helps reduce the daily stress.
  • Shower regulates body temperature and there are many many many more advantages of shower ……….

Cold water shower in the morning is good and refreshing. It is best to keep you alert and refreshing. You can start off with hot water just to enter the shower and once you are comfortable you can reduce the heat to near cold water and finish the shower. This is the morning shower. If you have a habit of having shower in the night before bed hot water shower is the best. Start your shower with bearable temperature and once you are comfortable in the shower increase the heat to bearable temperature and finish your shower. This does something to the body that I don’t know and calm the system and you will have a very comfortable, sound sleep.

My mother thought us few shower therapies:

Start your shower with warm water and then reduce to cold water and bring down to as cold as possible. Keep it that way for a while and increase to hot water shower. Keep it that way for a while and reduce it to cold water. Repeat this few times and finally end with cold water. She insisted that we end with cold water. She said it is good to follow this way and asked us to do it at least once a month.

My mother used to soak our head with coconut oil or castor oil and massage it. We have to wait for an hour like that in oily head before heading for shower. My mother enforced this rule even in post teen years. This is daily shower.

Once a week we are supposed to have an oil bath or shower. Massage the whole body with oil and have a complete shower using shikakai powder. This cools the body completely and you can feel that you are in a different body.

We were told to use mild soap or shikakai to clean the body. We were taught to never to use shampoo. Shampoo and some soaps have strong chemicals that wipe out the oil from our skin completely and we were told that is not good for the skin.

It is always good to have a shower or two daily for a healthy living.

Health Benefit Of Onions

During my child wood days my mother used to add lots of onions to our diets. My mother kept telling all the health benefit of onions. My mother is not a scientist but we all trusted what her mother taught her. She always kept saying eating onions, garlic and ginger everyday keep you away from fever, headaches, and joint pains. She also said onions strengthen the hair and helps hair growth. I have seen her keeping cut onions all around the house, when asked she said, keeping cut onions around the house absorbs all that circulate fever and infections. She believed that cut onions around the house chase all that planning to harm the house.

We trusted my mother because she was a healthy woman, active all the time. We have seen my mother getting up very early in the morning worked through the day in the kitchen and maintaining the house. None of us ever seen her getting sick or feeling tired. Taking care of seven children and a husband is not an easy task but she did all that happily. We all respected and believed in her. when she gave us the benefit of onions we took all what she said for granted. 

All About Onions:

We have onion rings with lemon juice and salt and pepper on it for breakfast. We have half fried onions with lunch and some form of onion for dinner. My mother always kept a plate full of sliced onions on the table all the time so that we can make use of it. All the left over onions from the table she keeps it around the house for couple of hours before throwing it in the garbage. For those who hate onion, try this. Cut thin slices of onions, squeeze lime juice on it. Then sprinkle salt and pepper to it. Fried onions tastes better but has less medicinal values. Try adding onion in some form to your diet and you will learn to like onions.

Benefit Of Onions:

According to my mother adding onions to the diet has the following benefits:

  • Onions purifies the blood stream and this improves the body immunity system.
  • Adding onions to the diet keep you away from all the infectious diseases.
  • Consuming onions prevent gastric troubles, helps digestive system and improve bowl movements.
  • I have seen my mother using onions on open wounds to stop the bleeding.
  • My mother used to place sliced onions on the temples to get rid of headaches and fever.
  • Onions can keep you heart healthy.
  • Onion juice can be used for insect bites and also protect the skin.
  • Adding onion to the diet gives a good night sleep.

My mother did not know a lot of scientific things but always talked about the benefit of onions. Lately I found out that onions are good to reduce cholesterol and good for controlling blood sugar. There are lots of studies going on around the world on onions to find the benefits of onion that have been proved by our forefathers.

Onions – The Myth:

There is a myth that if you keep cut onions and uses them few days later you may end of getting food poisoning. In a way it is true. It is not the onion that is bad. I have mentioned earlier that my mother used to keep cut onion around the house. What the onion does it it absorbs also bacteria and other bad viruses from the air and keep the air clean. When you cut and keep the onion that is what happens and once you use the bacteria infected onion that in turn results in food poisoning.

According to a study at the University of Bern in Switzerland showed that consuming of one gram dry onion per day for about four weeks increased bone mineral content in rats by more than 17% and mineral density by more than 13% compared to animals fed a control diet. This data suggests onion consumption has the potential to decrease the incidences of osteoporosis. 

The world today is spending millions of dollars in the study the benefits of onions, ginger, garlic and other bitter herbs. As you know that there are different varieties in onions – red onion white onion and small onions and the scientist community is seeing different chemicals and medical benefits in each one of them. But our forefathers centuries ago had taught us and even the Bible talks about adding bitter herbs to the diet.

God has given us a finest machine, our body, why not take care of it. If you have spent $40000 to buy a car, don’t you take care of it by cleaning it every day and changing oil on time, fill gas when it is time? No one can fix a price tag on our body because it is priceless, and yet we stuff garbage down our throat and make it vulnerable to all the diseases. We fill gas to our car but don’t drink enough water to keep our body functioning. Finally we blame it on something and ask God to take away the sickness. Why not prevent it from happening? You decide.

As I always said in my previous posts anything that is tastier for the 2 ½ inch tongue is not good for the body. Whatever is bitter for the tongue is good for the body. The body does not get the taste once the food goes past the tongue. So why not take care of the body and live a healthy life.

water1

Why Drink Water?

Why drinking water is important to our survival. We lose water by way of urination, sweating and respiration. We also lose more water from our body when we are active. When the body has less water when we urinate we get a strong odor, and the urine is yellow (amber). This means our body is running out of water. The reason for the colour is that the urine takes out part of our body vitamins that is not good for the body. Beware, sometimes if you are on strong medication the colour of urine may change, that is not due to lack of water in the body.

Importance of Water:

Water is one of the important components of our body. Water takes about 65% of body weight. It acts as a transporter in our body to transport all kind of nutrients to all the tissues and organs of the system and at the same time flushes out the entire toxic component from our organs to kidney. We all know the consequences if we shut down our transport system, same goes to our body, less water shuts down the supply of important nutrients to all part of our body. Apart from that water regulates our body temperature. Dehydration sets in if our body has less water.

Less Water symptoms:

The symptoms of dehydration is tiredness, thirsty, headaches, constipation, back pain, pains in the joints and kidney problems. You may also get dry skin due to lack of water. Lack of water may also cause irregular blood pressure. There are lots more common symptoms for dehydration but tiredness, thirst and the colour of urine are the most important ones.

Benefits of water:

These are the benefits of drinking 9 to 13 cups of water a day:

  1. It is a natural remedy for most of the illness.
  2. Helps to concentrate and alert.
  3. Water helps constipation and digestion system.
  4. Healthy skin, and happy, healthier lifestyle.
  5. Water lubricates the joints and thus eliminate joint pains.
  6. Since drinking lots of water clears our body of all the toxic substances, it may reduce the risk of cancer and other serious sickness.
  7. Drinking more water and less coffee tea and milk may reduce the chances of getting an heart attack.

On the whole, water plays a strong fundamental role in strengthening our immune system. Water do not add calorie. Water is free. So it is important to consume 9 to 13 cups of water a day. Men are advised to take more water than the women. Another important no…. no is taking all the 13 cups in one sitting.

Take a break from your work now, and take a walk to the kitchen and drink a glass of water and repeat this process 10 to 13 times a day. Do this if you want to have a happy and healthy life.

Neem Tree – No. 1 Natural medicine

Neem Tree is a tropical evergreen tree that grows mostly in the Indian sub-continent and it is the no.1 natural medicine for most illness. Out of all the trees that are proved to be useful for humanity, Neem tree is one of the most important ones found in the tropical regions of the world. From its roots to its top, the tree contains some of the important compounds that are useful for animals, people and plants. Neem tree’s virtues are, to a large extent, attributable to its chemical constituents. Because of its incredible healing properties, in the early days it was called the village pharmacy.

If you travel around the villages in India you will notice plenty of neem trees and may come across people relaxing under them. Since it is evergreen and need little or no water and needs lot of sun, it is relaxing area on hot summer day. It is believed that if you breathe under the neem tree it is good for the lungs and cleans some of the impurities.     

Neem Tree:

Neem tree was part of my mother’s life and she used them for all kind of illnesses. She always said neem tree is a wonder plant. Every part of neem tree is bitter and mother had tough time convincing my brothers, sisters and me to use them. We were told to use need branch sticks to brush our teeth. We were asked to eat neem leaves and ask to use neem oil. Neem products are very bitter and difficult to swallow. During my childhood I tried to avoid taking neem but during my teen years I made it a point to use them regularly.

neem12

Eating neem leaves is one of the best antidotes for the body. The new leaves normally look brownish and are the best part of the neem tree. Whenever I see them I used to eat them. According to my mother they are good to prevent all kinds of diseases. These leaves are good to treat infections, viral diseases, poisonous bites, gastric troubles many other form of diseases. Neem leaves stimulates the immune system, detoxifies the blood and improves liver function. It generally promotes a healthy circulation, respiratory and digestive system.

Benefits of Neem Tree:

I have seen people use neem for the following diseases and disorders and many more:

  1. Neem leaves paste is used to treat chickenpox.
  2. Neem leaves are given to control any kind of fever.
  3. Neem stick is used to clean teeth and for gum related problems.
  4. Neem bark extract is said to be good for warts and dandruff.
  5. Drinking neem leaves soaked water is good for stomach disorders.
  6. I have seen people placing neem leaves around the bed of the person suffering from chickenpox.
  7. Burning neem bark gets rid of mosquitoes.
  8. Neem bark is good for cough, loss of appetite, stomach worms, eczema, psoriasis, ulcers and other skin problems.
  9. It is famous for treating malaria and for diabetes.

There is lot more to neem leaves that we do not know. Scientists are still agreed that neem tree has some value and are still trying to find out how neem can be used to treat cancer and other illnesses.

neem14

We can’t get fresh leaves in Canada but we can get neem products through Amazon and or your local Indian Grocery store. IT may not be as good as the real neem but for those who can get the natural product this is one way to get little benefit.

I miss my neem,………..

shi3

Shikakai – Best herbal Hair Shampoo and Conditioner

When we were young Sunday was the day for oil bath. Though the week day daily shower takes only few minutes before going to school, the Sunday bath may take up to 4 hours. My parents massage us with castor oil and we have to stay oily for 3 to 4 hours before showering. Sad for my sisters, they had long hair and my mother put a lot of castor oil and they too stay oily like us. When my sisters complained my mother assured them that they will appreciate when they grow up.

We never got soap or shampoo those days, even though we can get them my mother always said shikakai is the best hair shampoo and conditioner that can protect the hair. After the shower it felt good and cooling and the hair felt good, smooth and clean. I have seen my sister’s hair over the years smooth and shiny and they looked good. My sisters too like the idea of using the shikakai instead of shampoo after all these years without my mother forcing them as they have seen it practically.

Understanding what she said then, now I tell my children to use shikakai instead of shampoo and conditioner. And I suggest you too use shikakai to have a velvety smooth hair. By using shikakai you will have thick hair and your head probably will be without dandruff. Shikakai has all the ingredients of a good shampoo or a conditioner to keep the hair healthy.

How to use shikakai:

By the way, the traditional hair washing routine in India goes roughly like this. In a bowl add Shikakai powder and water to make shikakai paste. First wet your hair, apply this paste into the scalp and massage it thoroughly. Make sure it doesn’t get in to your eyes as it burns. That is it. Massage the head thoroughly, wait for 15 to 20 minutes and rinse with cold or lukewarm water. Finish your shower and dry the air.

Shikakai

Shikakai

I know that it is a time consuming process, messy. I know that it is difficult to rinse out. But the benefit of all this is rewarding and beautiful especially for women. Shikakai doesn’t really lather well, since it is a mild but very effective cleanser. Recently I learnt that lots of bubbles don’t always mean good, but it is hard to break the lather habit.

Thing to add to shikakai:

For my sister’s hair my mother add lots of other powders and pastes like fenugreek powder, mung bean powder, hibiscus flowers, amla, neem, bringradi and rose water. I have no clue as to the proportion but I think you can work it out trial and error basis to get the best combination that suits your hair. I have also seen my mother adding a pinch of ginger powder. you may not get a perfect result in one treatment. It might take couple of weeks for you to see a good result as they are all mild products.

drying hair

drying hair

In some parts of India, women dry their hair with incense smoke. It dries the long hair faster and gives good smell. Sambrani smoke is one of the well known incense used. This is a time consuming job and normally women with long hair dry their hair with extra help, usually from mother. 

One thing you must watch while purchasing shikakai. There are many brands of shikakai powder available in the market that is not pure shikakai. Often they are mixed with different additives including SLS, so make sure to check the back of the box for ingredients. And if there are no ingredients listed, then don’t buy that brand. Best method is to make your own powder and keep it. You can buy shikakai and other products online in Amazon. Remember for the best results use only the natural products which is not adulterated with chemicals and or some kind of additives.

What is shikakai:

Shikakai

Shikakai

According to Wikipedia the chemical name for shikakai is “Acacia concinna”. Wikipedia further states, “In order to prepare it the fruit pods, leaves and bark of the plant are dried, ground into a powder, then made into a paste. While this traditional shampoo does not produce the normal amount of lather that a sulfate-containing shampoo would, it is considered a good cleanser. It is mild, having a naturally low pH, and doesn’t strip hair of natural oils”.

It is your hair and your body. It is up to you to take care of your hair to look beautiful thick hair. you might have seen young people loosing their hair or balding. It is mainly because of the shampoos with lots of chemicals that are not good for the hair. When you wash with shampoos they may give you a temporary smoothness and good smell but it is only short lived. In the long run it is not good for your hair. Hair need certain amount of oil to have a healthy root, using shikakai help the hair to retain the oil.

12 people dead and a monster killed

America——-Do you need this? Are you happy the way that you’re getting news like this……..gunman in the mall shooting or

A AR15 shooting at the children….or gunman shot and killed and the police found short gun, pistol, AR15 and a bag full of ammunition. The recent one being a guy who did not get paid for the work that he is done from the company….. took a shot gun and some other guns and shot and killed 12 people, injured many and disrupted a day and made the taxpayers spend millions of dollars to fold and clear what he unfolded. Is it a reason to kill 12 people?

navy-yard-shooting-washington

navy-yard-shooting-washington

Is this the America that you are proud of? We are all proud of … America… the first one to land man on the moon….. America the super power….. America the country that helps and protects the world when there is a need…… There are millions of good things that can be said about this United States of America. Is this America forefront in gun violence? It is a shame to think that no one can do anything about this.

sandy-hook-victims

sandy-hook-victims

Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting stirred up a lot of publicity and media coverage was so much that everybody thought that there will be a change in the gun law. Shamefully nothing was done. The bill for universal background was defeated in the senate. Since then there were few more shootings and still nothing is done. Why?

Now that is one aspect. But there is a bigger picture that we do not know. According to statistics……61% of the firearm related violent death in the United States is gun suicide. Even though these suicides were gone unnoticed, Harvard study shows that majority these people that kill themselves get the gun from their own house and quite a few these gun suicides were committed within days or weeks after purchasing the firearm.

Here are some more statistics

American gun related death is 19.5% higher than that of any industrialized country.
2007 statistics ….. There were 9 guns for every 10 people. And 2012 Gallup poll states, “43 percent of those surveyed reported having a gun in the home.”
Handguns are used on more than 87% of the violent incidents.
These are few of the statistics and read the links for more detailed data.

We now know the statistics….we know that it is happening quite frequently in America… we know after each of these violent incidents in the recent past the media went on for couple of days with how….. why …. Where……what….. and as usual interview former FBI officers, CIA officers, psychiatrists, psychologists, and of course doctor Drew too. In CNN and other news media they discuss and debate for few days and the news dies down till the next incident unfolds.

Why nothing has been done:

President Obama was trying to have control gun sale ever since he was a senator but could do it why?

1. SECOND AMENDMENT:

I was checking Wikipedia and that states “The Second Amendment (Amendment II) to the United States Constitution protects the right of the people to keep and bear arms from infringement. It was adopted on December 15, 1791”.

1791???? Yes in 1791 when there were few people in the whole of America and they needed the guns to protect themselves from the animals. Now remember, it was in 1791 and there were no magazines to load the guns, no high power guns that discharges – I don’t know how many – 20, 30, 50 rounds a minute… this second amendment was adopted probably at a time after the shot the shooter sits and hammer gunpowder into his barrel and that might have taken few minutes I suppose.

The second amendment, mind you, was written during a time when there was no national military and the revolutionary war was won by a bunch of farmers. So the idea that everyone has the right to a weapon was to protect the country in case of another British incursion.

Do we in this modern world need to follow the second amendment of 1791? If we change the laws to restrict people from carrying a heavy weapon that can shoot 30+ rounds a minute, will affect the rights of people? In fact, does anyone need to carry a gun at all?

2. NRA – The National Rifle Association of America:

The National Rifle Association was founded in 1871. They are the one and only body that is quashing any effort taken by the government to restrict gun in this country. How can NRA do that you may ask? They have the money power. They have your representative to the congress in their pocket. You need to see this statistics, you will be appalled…..

Click the following link to see how many Democrats and Republicans you voted receive funds from NRA and how much money each received for their campaign: http://www.opensecrets.org/orgs/toprecips.php?id=D000000082&cycle=2012.

How the NRA exerts influence over Congress:

The National Rifle Association uses campaign expenditures and a rating system based on members’ voting histories to exert influence over members of Congress.

261 candidates received donations in 2012
Democrats……….…….25 candidates
Republicans……………236 candidates
Totaling about $650,000………… 90% of this went to the Republicans.
Democrats received $74,000 and the Republicans received $583,646.

They are your chosen people.

Over 80 percent of the candidates funded by the NRA won their House or Senate races. Winners…. 2012 election results received a whopping $524,946….. and the Losers received $132,700

213 members of the 113th Congress received NRA dollars in 2012
In the recent election in 2012
Democrats in the Senate received $4500
Republicans in the Senate received $32,408
Democrats in the House received $45,050
Republicans in the House received $442,988

This is the same people that you have elected to represent you. Are they taking a bribe… I don’t know you decide. These numbers are very scary in 1990…in all the Republicans collected over $3 million.

The NRA functions as a lobbyist for gun manufacturers. Their main objective appears to be to frighten everyone so they will want to purchase a weapon.

NRA is a big giant with over $ 200 million in revenues and the support from the gun manufacturers to lobby against the anti-gun law. They have the support from politicians, your representatives.

Has this country gone completely asleep? Are you waiting for another incident to come and go and turn the other side? Are you going to allow every lobbyist in Washington to dictate our politicians and our government to do what they want?

Didn’t  your representatives voted against the bill for background check? Isn’t it the bill the president put forth for the benefit of the American people? Do you want guns in your country? Do you want to see these acts go on in your America? Can anything done in the Democratic America or the dictators own your America?

As I was writing this there is another shooting in Chicago 5 dead 13 injured including a 3 year old and it is going over and over for the past 20 hrs.…… Okay here we go again another gun shooting in Kenya in a mall ………

WAKE UP AMERICA!!!!!…..WAKE UP.

What you do:

You are living in a democratic and a greatest land in the world…… America, be proud of it. And go after your representative and do the right thing…. Don’t wait and get no for an answer. If your representative is a NRA puppet change it or change him right away…. Make him or her resign… you choose them and you can take them out. You definitely don’t want gun on the streets and you can eliminate it… don’t let this post go like any other regular and go in vain.

Don’t let NRA run the country that you’re proud of …. only you should run this country through your chosen people…. Let that be that way……you may be a Republican or a Democrat but this is your America and be united to keep it that way.

Drug-resistant bacteria are common killers

Drug-resistant bacteria are common killers

I recently read an article in the media saying that there is a Drug-resistant bacteria that is killing a lot of people in the US. We don’t have the statistic about how many killed around the world. Click the link to read the ABC news http://goo.gl/c8fWyd.

In a new report, they said that there are 17 most worrisome drug-resistant bacteria. Because of this Drug-resistant bacteriaaccording to the report each year, more than 2 million people develop serious infections and at least 23,000 die. Click on the following link to get more information  about this Drug-resistant bacteria that is haunting the researchers ……….  http://news.yahoo.com/report-drug-resistant-bacteria-common-killers-170739329.html

This is a troublesome news. They are trying to find an alternate antibiotic to fight this Drug-resistant bacteria and spend millions of dollars for this research. It may take few years before they find a cure and may cost millions of dollars for the research. By the time they  find a cure few hundred lives may be lost.

The reason for all this is, we all know the body’s immunity level is very low. Our God given body is not fighting back this Drug-resistant bacteria. God made our body to fight any kind of bacteria and virus or any kind of sicknesses but we destroy the immunity system. How are we destroying the body’s immunity system? Good question. To my knowledge it is because of the junk food that we eat – whatever goes in our body causes this and also whatever not going in our body causes this too. The fatty, tastier, high calorie with no medical value food destroys, in fact, lowers our immunity system, thus allowing all kinds of bacteria to get in our body.  What are our options?

Drug-resistant bacteria – The Remedy
garlic

As I have stated all the time I am a firm believer in the power of garlic, ginger and other bitter herbs.  My mother learnt from her mother and we believe in them. The best remedy is to consume about 8 to 10 pods of garlic, raw garlic every night. Continue doing this for the rest of the life……this will very definitely increase the body’s immunity level and by doing that all the bacteria from our body will be eliminated. It is a slow process and you might not get a result in a day or two but it will very definitely help.

If these patients continue taking the garlic, I believe that they will have few more happy years to enjoy in this world. I have no medical proof to prove this concept but it is natural remedy and even the researchers believe that the herbs increase the body’s immunity level. Some people may say, okay I will take garlic pills, garlic pills are artificial and I have no clue as to the benefit from these pills. Raw garlic is always good, roasting the garlic looses its value to an extend. Some people may want to use the garlic or ginger pills they can buy from Amazon. I definitely don’t approve pills as it does not have the value of natural product. You can use them but the results are very very slow and may take longer for the remedy.

In all my posts I have been insisting every one take garlic and ginger with the diet. It is always better to teach our young children to these herbs with their diet. It is easy to form this habit in children when they are young and as they grow older they will appreciate the value of these herbs and will continue to take them through their life time and teach their children to do so. I urge everyone to help our generation to understand the importance of bitter herbs.
