Dear Prudhvi You can drink the boiled basil water daily by boiling 5-10 leaves of Basil in 200 ml of water for 10 minutes. Strain and drink it.
OR : Massage the affected limbs with the Basil Oil.
The best remedy for paralysis is Sida Cordifolia ( Bala ) and Withania Somnifera ( Ashwagandha ) Oil. Infuse the Oils in equal proportion and massage with it daily over the affected area.

Jagan. The indigestion and bloating are the indicators that you are not able to metabolize the food properly.. The underlying cause in most of the cases is the malfunctioning of Liver. We advise you to take the following Herbs, these will take care of your Liver, stomach and all other body systems.
1. Milk Thistle- Take milk thistle capsule everyday, for a month. One capsule daily.
2. Pippli- Take a cup of warm water. Add a pinch of pippli powder to it. Drink it everyday for 15 days, if it suits you only then. 3. Punarnavarishta - This will boost up your immune system and will provide you relief from indigestion as well as bloating. Drink 15 ml in a glass of water once in a day ( for 30 days )

Try these herbs for 7 days,l if they suit you , only then continue the intake. Another suggestion : Visit the page METABOLISM in the portal Vibrant Health on this website. Vibrant health is just next to the Home button at the top. For any queries, you can always write back to us.

Tulsi enters US lab to fight cancer

Washington: The ubiquitous tulsi in your backyard may be a potent weapon against all kinds of cancer, so believes a team of researchers led by an Indian-origin scientist.

Tulsi or basil has eugenol that helps fight cancer. Now the research team is genetically modifying tulsi in the lab to produce the anti-cancerous compound in abundance.

"When you grind basil leaves, a compound called eugenol comes out. If I could make it produce eugenol in higher amounts, that basil plant would serve as a storehouse of that anti-cancerous compound," said Chandrakanth Emani, assistant professor of plant molecular biology at Western Kentucky University-Owensboro (WKU-O) in the US.

In his lab at the Owensboro facility, Emani and his students are genetically engineering the basil to produce more eugenol, a compound in basil that, in his words, "has a very great pharmaceutical value because it's shown to control breast cancer".
Natraj ( India/Tamilnadu )
22 Sep 2016
-----"Eugenol, when they put it on a plate where there are tumour cells, it stopped growth of the tumour cells. That was a proof of concept experiment which was done a long time back," said Emani, in a press release issued by the university.

The next phase in the research project would be to test the compound as an effective cancer treatment.

"We want to deal with treating cancer in a holistic way. We want to find one treatment that takes care of many cancers," Emani added.

Tulsi's therapeutic properties have been discussed at great length in ancient ayurveda texts in India.

Emani, who earned his bachelor's, master's and doctoral degrees in India, has been at WKU-Owensboro since 2010.

Also tulsi leaves soaked in tap water & stored in copper vessel left overnight has an amazing effect . Drinking tulsi water stored in copper, is believed to have anti-microbial, antioxidant, anti-carcinogenic and anti-inflammatory properties. It’s an essential mineral for our body and medical studies have proved the benefits of drinking water stored in copper jugs. According to a 2012 study, storing contaminated water in copper pots for up to 16 hours at room temperature considerably reduced the presence of harmful microbes so much so that. The researchers inferred “Copper holds promise as a point-of-use solution for microbial purification of drinking-water, especially in developing countries.” Another study found that copper surfaces killed 97% of hospital ICU bacteria that can cause infections, resulting in 40% decrease in the infection rates. Also When water is stored in a copper vessel, the copper gently leaches into the water and lends it all its positive properties. The best part about this water is that it never becomes stale and can be stored this way for long periods of time.
Surabhi ( India )

Thank you so much for this information. But will you please tell if we consume..5-6 tulsi fresh leaves in morning ( empty stomach) and then drink warm water with honey and lemon in it, will this cause any problem? If not what are its advantages
05 Oct 2016
Surabhi Please do not chew fresh tulsi leaves for a prolonged period, as it may be harmful for your teeth ( teeth may fall off ). So, if you wish to take it for prolonged period, squeeze out the juice and take it with water. Or take it in a way so that you do not need to chew the leaves.
The reason is the presence of raw mercury in it.

She should prepare Jaggery tea. Add 2 cups of water in a pan. Add jaggery to it, according to taste, boil it ,until the water remains one cup. Drink one cup daily, 3 days prior to menses and on first and second day of menses. This should help her. She must take a healthy diet. Avoid cold drinks or juices during her periods.

Rupal Shergill ( Punjab )
06 Apr 2017
Tehui. We hope that you are aware of the fact that PID occurs when sexually transmitted bacteria enters the vagina and then spreads to the uterus, ovaries fallopian tubes. Garlic, Turmeric and Baking Soda are the cure of this disease.
Eat 2 cloves of Garlic daily.
One glass of Turmeric boiled in milk can be taken daily for 20 days, Do not forget to add a pinch of black pepper to it. The hot bath will help relax the pelvic muscles, the cold bath will help reduce the pain. I have to share an effective method here----- Fill two large bathtubs– one with warm water and the other with cold water. Add a few drops of lavender essential oil to each.Mix well. First of all, sit in the tub with hot water up to your navel or waist for 5 minutes. Then, sit in the tub of cold water for a minute. Repeat a few times. End the session with cold water.

24 Apr 2017
All cells of the body need sugar. In diabetes, the sugar does not reach the cells but remains in the blood stream. Cells create a craving for sugar. Sugarcane has glucose of low Glycemic Index. If you are diabetic, you are bound to be low on energy. You may sip a little sugarcane juice at a time to give you that energy without the Blood Sugar rising.
