The gel also provides an air proof moisturizing barrier so that wounds do not dry out.Aloe Vera's pulp increases shukra due to its oily,sticky and cold qualities. Since its bitter taste causes shukra tissue fire stimulation it acts as aphrodisiac also.

#BetelLeaf #Ayurveda #Science

According to Ayurveda, betel leaves contain certain elements which can help to cure diseases caused by air and bile. According to the Vaidyas in Sanskrit, betel leaf juice was often prescribed as a remedy for infected ears and pus formation.....
and can cure a headache by applying it on the forehead.
 
A betel leaf contains vitamin C, iron, carotene, fibre, potassium, iodine and thiamine and hence is used widely in Aryuvedic medicines to prevent bad teeth, treat ulcers and acne.

#ScientificApproach
It help in relieving coughing and even to cure respiratory disorders like bronchitis.

#Hindu #Rituals #Marriage #Love

According to the traditions in many South-East Asian countries, a combination of Betel leaf and Areca nuts is inseparable as they symbolize loyalty in love...

What is the the IDEAL DIET?

I've spent the last few years experimenting and reading about a bunch of diets and I feel pretty certain about some Ayurvedic principles that work to improve the health of EVERYONE.

Sharing insights 👇👇👇
According to Ayurveda there's no such thing as an IDEAL DIET for EVERYONE, because Ayurveda believea bio-individuality.

Thus one man's poison is another man's nectar, HOWEVER there are certain health principles which are universal. Discussing that below. Simple stuff for all.
1) Sugar is pure poison - No exaggeration at all. Sugar has addictive properties that work very similar to the way cocaine works on our brain. Just google "sugar cocaine addiction". In rats sugar is 8 TIMES MORE ADDICTIVE THAN COCAINE. Use jaggery (brown, unprocessed) not the

Ancient India was not purely religious. If You see main Hindu Scriptures like Vedas, Upnishad, and Samhita they are collection of philosophies, scientific data and facts. They worshipped nature and were experts in Science, astronomy, mathematics.
#Thread #IndicHistory
Just because the language is Sanskrit, Leftists reject it to be unscientific and religiously motivated.
In recent time ie last few hundred years, many distortion n misinterpretation has been done too and readers who don't know Sanskrit tend to believe it.
Let's dive in brief
#RigVeda: It's full of the geographical data about India. Research on Rig Veda have proven and can be further verified that Our Civilization was River based and most important one was Saraswati. We worshipped nature. eg Agni, Varun, Indra.

T1: Thread on data analysis & representation emerging from cognitive bias associated with research studies involving serious malpractice in #altmed #naturopathy #ayurveda #AYUSH research, i.e. no placebo controlled, no blinding, incorrect statistics, no error bars on mean data.
T2: From the recent article published at @AltNews Science on dengue and papaya extract pill called Caripill altnews.in/is-caripill-th… we evaluated the two clinical trial studies in India given by pubmed
T3: The first study had serious misrepresentation of data : while there is no way to find out the raw data & conduct statistical analysis, I replotted the figure using Mean +_ standard error of mean given in the results section. ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/m/pubmed/27739…

A classic case how #Ayurveda is being defamed deliberately and how rumours are spread intentionally.
@DrShrinidh @ViIlageldiot
@DrSamarthk

How an Ayurvedic tonic caused severe liver disease in a farmer who never drank alcohol.
scroll.in/pulse/886955/h… via @scroll_in
First of all; Dashamoolaristam (the accused medicine in the write-up) isn't used as 'digestive' in #Ayurveda It is primely used in Vata diseases. It contains self generated alcohol which is different than the distilled one.
Here mentioned farmer is said to be taking 4-5 ounces (approx 148 ml) four times a day which makes it around 592 ml a day!

Theraputic dose of the same is 10-20 ml twice a day.

So in this case; it was consumed in around 15 times more quantity than the expected!

You must have heard the word "quantum mechanics" before, and most of you may have probably heard the phrase in the popular @CBS show @bigbangtheory.

What does it mean?

Quantum Physics describes nature at the smallest scales of energy levels of atoms and subatomic particles.
In simple words, as opposed to 'Classical Physics', the Quantum Theory suggests that everything in the universe has both particle and wave nature, at the same time.

Confused?

Simply put, matter consists of "invisible energy fields" that can pass through solid things, at random!

#Thread : #diabetes & rice

Study conducted by the International Rice Research Institute (IRRI) and the University of Queensland says, #Diabetic patients may consume Indian varieties of rice like Swarna, Mahsuri as they have low GI.

#DiabetesMonth
#SwasthaBharat
Rice variety like brown rice could be consumed by #Diabetic patients as well. This is customary in many parts of southern India.

#DiabetesMonth
#SwasthaBharat
Traditionally Indians consume aged rice; which has low GI as compared to the new one. If you consuming new rice grain; just roast it a bit before cooking. It makes it easy to digest says #Ayurveda. The process also helps reducing the GI.

The second image shared by you clearly says 'न शीलयेत्।' which means DON'T CONSUME beef. So you actually proved my point sharing it!!
