Human body is as resilient as steel, and, as fragile as an eggshell.   Balance is the essence.  When the Immune system defaults, a  disease attacks.  It attacks that part of the body which is weakest at that time.  If all is well, it will affect the Metabolism.  Acute observation will reveal its direction.  Judicious, simple, action will restore health.  Ignorance, bad habits, mental inertia and physical lethargy preclude early detection.  The camouflaged disease, advances, overpowers the Metabolism and enters an Organ System.  It manifests itself with well defined symptoms.  Now, the metabolism is sick.  One or more Organ Systems is/are also sick. 
A complicated, multipronged action is required to regain lost ground.  The disease reigns supreme.  If you still ignore to take remedial action, one or more Organs will be affected.  This is the normal route of progression of a disease.  But the converse is also true.  If all the Organs of your body are in top gear and functioning well, the Organ Systems will be healthy and consequently the Metabolism will be in perfect harmony. 
Therefore, whether you are healthy or sick, you need to take care of your Organs.  They are intuitively self protective.  Still.  A little help from your side will go a long way.  A simple yet detailed guide has been compiled for you.  It explains the functions of each Organ.  Then it gives you the Herbs most suited to that Organ.  No complicated diagnosis is required.  You do not need to know whether they are sick or healthy.  Either way the Herbs will tone the Organs.  All you need to do, is to consume them.  The five most vital Organs have been covered.  Be smart.  Prevent disease.  Act.  Do not react.

Organs covered on this page are:
Pancreas
Kidneys
Liver
Heart
Spleen
Brain

Pancreas
The Pancreas is a gland. It produces Hormones and Digestive juices.  Hormones: Glucagon, Insulin, Pancreatic Polypeptide and Somatostatin.  Digestive juices: Pancreatic juice.
Mechanism.
First, it extracts energy from food.  It permits the entry of sugar into the body cells. When it malfunctions, digestion becomes sluggish and the sugar meant for the cells remains in the Blood stream. This excess sugar in the blood is either stored in the Liver or filtered by the Kidneys.  So, anything going wrong with the Pancreas, even a minor kink, will throw the entire system off track.  Affecting, first the Liver, then Kidney, Heart and finally the Brain.
Punarnava :  The very name when translated into English means rejuvination. Punarnava affects most of the organs. Punarnava lowers blood sugar. The herb is a diuretic. It prevents formation of kidney stones and gravel. When kidney function deteriorates it will re juvinate the kidnsys. It lowers creatinine. It optimises the liver functions. Therefore we should start taking Punarnava during the care of the Pancreas and contune its use right through all the organs.
Gymnema Sylvertre ( Gurmar )  :  It restores the functioning of Pancreas. Controls the level of sugar in the blood.  The Herb is a magic wand for Diabetics.  Take 10 drops of the mother tincture before every major meal.  Keep a note of your sugar levels. Try this for 7 days. If the Herb suits you, continue this for a month.
Land Caltrops ( Gokharu ) :  It revitalizes beta cells which help pancreas to produce Insulin. Gokharu rejuvenates and promotes an over all health of Pancreas. Try this herb for a week, if it suits you, continue for a month., otherwise - STOP.
Korean Ginseng  :  This Herb reduces the chances of  Pancreatic Cancer.  Make a powder of Korean Ginseng roots. Boil one pinch of this powder in a glass of water. drink it thrice a week. If it suits you, continue for a month. It is an adaptogen. It will optimize the functioning of the entire body. If it does not suit you, STOP.

In the event of a malfunction of the Pancreas, excess sugar is released into the Blood stream. Poor Liver!! It has to overwork. This over exertion may lead to Liver Disorders. Logically, we should take care of the Liver next. But, Kidneys being the more important organ seem to be the organ of choice that must be taken care of before the Liver.  Another reason for treating the kidneys before the Liver is the fact that as the kidneys improve, they automatically help the Liver to function better.  Besides, some herbs are common for all the organs mentioned on this page.

Kidneys.
They are the keys to the mystery of health.  Kidneys are small intricate reprocessing machines.  They remove waste products and excess fluids from the body.  To study the multitude of functions,  Click on -  Kidney Diseases  ( On this page, scroll down and look for  Kidney functions  in the description section ).

Dear Ninja,
Please answer a few questions:
Do you suffer weak eyesight?
Have you been ever diagnosed with Migraine?
Do you have pain at any particular time of day? Like is it more when you are out in the sun or when you are stressed?

Meanwhile, you can start taking Mint water. It will give you relief from Headache. Put some mint leaves in a bottle of water. Drink this water in the day. Keep refilling the bottle.

Greetings,
I’ve been diagnosed with Lymphedema in my Left Leg. How can it be Cured / Reversed??
Also, dealing with Improper Blood Flow in the Left Leg. I’m not sure if the Valves aren’t working properly OR if it’s an issue within the Arteries/Blood Vessels/Veins. What would you Suggest or Recommend. By the way, the Lower Left Leg has Discoloration too.
I’d Greatly Appreciate hearing from you. Thank you so very much in advance.
