Basil: The leaves and seeds of the plant possess excellent curative properties. The leaves are a nerve tonic; they sharpen memory and promote phlegm removal from the lungs. They also strengthen the stomach lining and help expel excess wind. The seeds are nourishing and cooling; they soothe the skin and mucus membranes, also aiding in the secretion and discharge of urine.
Basil today reigns supreme as it can cure most diseases. Ayurveda considers it as a destroyer of tridosha (gas, acid and cough)
It is helpful in case of fever, respiratory disorders, digestive disorders, bladder infections, constipation, sinus issues, stress, skin diseases, dental problems, headache, earache, body odour, vomiting and malaria.
Application: Basil juice to be taken every morning with water.
AMLA: The richest source of vitamin C. This fruit has twenty times the vitamin C of grapefruit and fifteen times that of a lemon. Amla has a cooling effect on the system and keeps one feeling rejuvenated.
Green amla reduces body heat and thirst; it also destroys phlegm and bile. It is used as an aphrodisiac and increases the production of semen. It helps in all urinary and gynaecological problems, improves stamina and reduces fatigue. It also reduces body fat and is excellent for hair and eyes. Chewing amla cures dental issues.
Honey: Honey is predigested by the bees. It contains four enzymes and numerous minerals such as potassium, calcium, sodium, magnesium and silicate and vitamins A, B and C in all the correct proportions as required by the human body. Dark honey has more iron, copper and manganese than the lighter varieties. Honey kills bacteria more effectively than some antibiotics. It also has certain types of potassium salts, which possess phenomenal moisture absorbing qualities. Hence, when honey comes into contact with germs or bacteria, all their moisture is instantly withdrawn, and they die. It works as an excellent disinfectant.
Regular intake of honey makes the body strong, energetic, fresh and disease resistant. It strengthens the respiratory system and removes weakness of the nervous and digestive system. It purifies the blood and acts as an expectorant. Honey and lemon juice removes tiredness. Honey also has a calming effect and aids sleep. It is also very beneficial in arthritis, as it reduces uric acid in the body.
A face pack of honey with rose water and gram flour applied to the face helps brighten the skin. Pure honey applied to the eyes helps cure many eye problems.
Two teaspoons of honey should be part of your daily diet; it could make old age less difficult with its multiple benefits.
Coconut water: Coconut water is naturally sterilized and full of essential minerals. It nullifies the side effects of many medicines and helps indigestion.
It contains chlorine and potassium in the right proportions, which aids in most kidney ailments, stone formation, Toxaemia in pregnancy, measles and typhoid.
Washing the face with coconut water removes dark blemishes, black spots, acne and makes the face glow.
