Natural vs. Chemical – The Eternal Conflict in Medicine

Disease & remedies

Through time, human beings are increasingly susceptible to various ailments. Some of them are due to the natural process of ageing, some because of hereditary reasons, some due to communicable diseases and increasingly, many are due to the degradation of the environment. More recently, the stress and strain of living in an increasingly more populated, polluted and disease-ridden world are taking a toll on younger people as well. These are lifestyle ailments.

Modern medication has evolved over time, with the use of chemical-based formulae to counteract physiological malfunctions, etc. Most of the world has adapted to this form of medication. But increasingly today, a back-to-nature movement has seen a shift towards more holistic treatment of illnesses. The virtues of age-old medical practices are now being realized. ‘Alternative’ Medicinal schools like Sidha, Ayurveda, Homeopathy and others are getting more currency. Awareness of positive factors like anti-oxidants, chlorophyll, etc. is increasing. The best way of delivering this to the body is through ayurvedic or herbal means. This leads to nil or minimal side-effects and can be used for as long as necessary without fear of long-term damage to the body (which chemical-based medicines as in Allopathy, almost invariably deliver).

Ayurvedic remedies to rescue you from the most chronic diseases abound in the world around us. Epics like the Ramayana talk about the mythical Sanjivani Herb that was reputed to bring Ram’s brother Lakshman back to life, from a near-death experience. This was obviously based on known herbal remedies at the time the epic was written. Back to the present.

An array of lifestyle conditions like Stress, Sleeplessness, Chronic pain, Cancer, Tuberculosis, Heart Disease, High Cholesterol, High Blood Pressure, Kidney problem, Diabetes, Digestion, Arthritis, Asthma, Depression, Obesity, Menstruation, and even Stroke are a fact of today’s life.

Common plants and herbs have been used as home remedies by our grandmothers and mothers at home. Let’s look at just a few examples.

For example, Ginger has an extremely high level of phytochemicals, plant substances with a healing effect. In addition to it’s beneficial effects on the heart and it’s anti-cancer activity are it’s anti-inflammatory effects and its high content of anti-oxidants. The healing ingredients are a variety of volatile essential oils, vitamin B6 and C, and the minerals calcium, magnesium, sulphur, phosphorus and potassium. Ginger stimulates body heat. It speeds up the blood circulation and sweating. Ginger will stimulate fever in people who need to sweat out diseases like colds and flues, Lyme disease and more. It works as an anti-inflammatory, and in combination with the heat-stimulating characteristics it is a powerful tool in fighting arthritis. If you are suffering from any of these ailments, treat yourself to regular doses of for its powerful healing properties.

Garlic has been used since the days of the Egyptians to treat wounds, infections, tumors, and intestinal parasites. Garlic’s reputation as a powerful medical herb dates back over 5,000 years. It is good for virtually any disease or infection. It prevents and heals arthritis, asthma, circulatory problems, colds and flu, digestive disorders, insomnia, liver disease, sinusitis, and ulcers. It Garlic is one of nature’s most broad spectrum, antibacterial agents. People are now becoming aware of the potency of garlic against cancer, heart disease and more. Garlic has the ability to combat plaque formation in the arteries. It’s ability to lower serum cholesterol in the blood can in turn reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease. Garlic lowers cholesterol, and triglycerides.  A simple solution such as fresh garlic and a natural healthy diet is what people need.

Let us look at an example of an Ayurvedic Herbal Product that Natural Mantra provides.

It is 100% herbal, 100% natural, hygienically processed and has no harmful side-effects.

Brahmi is perhaps the most important nervine herb used in Ayurvedic medicine. It is now available at Natural Mantra in the form of an organic powder. It revitalizes the brain cells, removing toxins and blockages within the nervous system, while at the same time delivering a nurturing effect.

It improves memory and aids concentration. When consumed daily, it helps to rejuvenate the mind. It helps awaken the crown chakra and balance the right and left hemispheres of the brain.

Facts You Must Know About Sanitary Napkins

Gynecologists say that up to a third of patients who come with problems such as vaginal itching may be experiencing symptoms of Allergic feminine Irritation (AFI). One in six gynaecologists say that women notice these symptoms to have worsened around the time of their monthly period, suggesting that their choice of sanitary protection may be a cause or aggravating factor.

Facts about commercial Sanitary napkins you cannot afford to ignore

  1. Commercial sanitary pads and panty liners contain a high degree of synthetic materials that impact our health directly.
  2. They are made up of ingredients that include polypropylene, polyacrylates, surfactants, plastic and chlorine-bleached wood pulp or even recycled paper which has to go through a lot of chemical processess. With so many synthetic materials, there is a lot of scope for allergic reactions.
  3. The synthetics and plastics create a humid microclimate in this warm damp area not allowing aeration hence leading to germs and fungal infections.
  4. Women suffering from skin allergies, irritation, soreness and itching find their symptoms are worse during their menstrual cycle due to contact with synthetic and plastic ingredients in most sanitary products.
  5. Considering that they aren’t made of cotton they need to be chlorine bleached to make them appear extremely white. This releases toxic dioxins, it is linked with various disorders and complications such as cancer, endometriosis, immune system suppression amongst others.
  6. Lastly the adhesive used is industrial quality which leave stains on the underwear this passing over.

At Natural Mantra our vision and goal is to find an alternative to these chemical laden products that cause more harm to us. We were thrilled when one of our customers introduced us to this marvelous product.

GIVE YOUR HAIR A SHADE OF HAPPINESS!

Image

 

New years, birthdays, anniversaries, weddings and break-ups are the times when women go for a drastic look change. More often than not, they choose to give themselves this change with a new hair-do or hair color. http://bit.ly/18L8CNl

Now there is no denying that we’ve all had home hair dyeing horror stories that are so bad that a shaved head seems like the only solution. So before you take this colorful leap, think!

Here are a few things that you would like to consider before going through that make-over:

Start with a semi-permanent dye. They are like summer romance and will wear away after about 10 washes. If you are happy with the shade you get, go ahead and make a long-term commitment!

Once you have established your favorite shade, you can go for a permanent color that you would want a happily ever after with.

For the most natural effect of your hair color, stay within three shades of your natural color. 

Deep-condition your hair regularly for a week before using a hair color. If your hair is damaged, the pigment won’t adhere well to your strands and it will end up looking streaky. http://bit.ly/ 15OmAC9

Don’t shampoo for a day or two before you color. Your hair’s natural oils will protect your scalp and prevent irritation.

Dab the roots of your hair with water before applying color. Since the tips of your hair tend to be dry and damaged, they can soak up too much color

After dying, hold off on shampooing for three days. This will give the cuticles–which open during the coloring process–time to close and seal in the color molecules.

Always wash off the color with cold water as hot water can cause cuticles to expand and open, allowing some of the color to escape. Use a color-protect shampoo for your hair color to stay longer. http://bit.ly/1dY3jQP

And while you are on a change in hair color quest, choosing the right type of hair color is even more important than choosing the shade http://bit.ly/18L8CNl Commercial hair colors and dyes contain harmful chemicals that only deteriorate your hair quality. As per a study by Manipal University, India, about 5% of the total hair dye users suffer from allergies due to harmful chemicals in hair dyeing products. One of the primary allergens used in these dyes is para-Phenylene di amine (pPD).

So what is the alternative, you ask. We are glad to answer that. There are two alternatives to these chemical based hair dyes: Henna and Hair-dyes made from natural extracts of plants. http://bit.ly/18L8CNl

Natural Mantra has a whole range of hair color products, including henna and natural hair-dyes. Our natural hair dyes are 100% ayurvedic preparations, therefore they don’t give you an immediate effect like chemical based hair dyes do. That said, they have a whole range of other benefits that more than make up for the slight delay.

It helps controls dandruff and increases hair growth. 

The proteins in it provide nourishment to your hair and scalp.

It gives UV Protection and helps maintain luster of the hair shafts.

It does not increase white hair.

It conditions and protects your hair.

The hair that gets damaged by chemical hair color can regain their shine and softness by regular use of our natural hair color! http://bit.ly/18L8CNl

So what sits on your crown, a head full of beautiful and lustrous hair or an itchy scalp – the choice is yours. In your pursuit to be different, don’t head on for a disaster! Give your hair a shade of joy with natural colors!

Bid an eco-farewell to Lord Ganesha this year

Image

Say ‘Ganpati Bappa Morya,

Ya Varshi Eco-Visarjan Ghya!’

Many of us welcome Lord Ganesha in our homes every year. For the days that He stays with us, we observe strict rules and make sure that our revered guest gets all our attention, best of food and a pure and clean environment.

Then comes the day of Visarjan! Every small bit of detail that we take care of and every way we protect the Ganesha idol…all of it just disappears in the noise and water pollution that we cause.

When we chant – Ganpati Bappa Morya, Pudhchya Varshi Lavkar Ya, do you think Lord Ganesha would really want to come back to a world so polluted and a visarjan so chaotic?

That is the bad part. The good part is that we can change it, starting from this year.

The first step in this direction would be to choose an eco-friendly Ganesha idol. . The idols made from clay, stone, metal or bio-degradable materials like coconut can be immersed in a bucket of water at home. This way, we don’t pollute the water or create traffic, thus restricting noise and air pollution. You can buy it from Natural Mantra http://bit.ly/15opE1v

Even when you want to give Ganesha a traditional farewell, idols made of clay dissolve in water soon after immersion; but idols made of non-biodegradable POP don’t dissolve. This leaves parts of our revered deity strewn on the shores or floating in the water.

That is not all; here are a few more reasons:

TOP REASONS FOR YOU TO BUY AN ECO-FRIENDLY GANESH IDOL: 

 

-Regular Ganesha idols in the market are made from Plaster of Paris which takes several months to dissolve. In the process, it poisons the water bodies that the idols are immersed in.
-The chemical paints used to decorate the Ganesh idol contain mercury, lead, cadmium and carbon. This increases the acidity and heavy metal content in water.
-The Ganesha Idols that are carelessly dumped in water bodies block the natural flow of water which results in stagnation and breeding of harmful pests and mosquitoes.
-The polluted water causes skin diseases to people who come in contact with it.
-It also kills the marine life and damages the eco-system.
-The same polluted water often finds its way to your tap without being treated.

Be a responsible citizen and an ardent devotee by choosing an eco-friendly Ganesha Idol from Natural Mantra for an eco-friendly visarjan! This way, we don’t pollute the water or create traffic, thus restricting noise and air pollution.

 

HOW TO GIVE GANESHA AN ECO-FRIENDLY VISARJAN:  
-Do not immerse any plastic waste along with your Ganesha Idol made from clay and natural colors.

-Opt for a symbolic immersion.

-Avoid using thermocol and plastic decorations.
-Alternatively sprinkle water on the Ganesha Idol instead of immersing it in the main water bodies of the city.
-You can also immerse the Ganesha Idol in a bucket of water and then use it to water the plants.
-If you want a cost-effective as well as eco-friendly option, get yourself a Ganesha Idol made from stone or metal which you can re-use every year.
Take the first step by ordering an eco-friendly Ganesha Idol from Natural Mantra! http://bit.ly/15opE1v

 

DISPOSAL OF NIRMALYA:

 

Along with the idol, there are several accessories used during the worship which are collectively referred to as ‘nirmalya’. These include flowers, fruits, coconuts, cloth, incense, camphor etc. Further, many people create elaborate temples out of thermocol to houwe their idols. Until some years ago, all these were also immersed along with the idols. 

In Pune, the municipal corporation has successfully convinced people not to immerse the ‘nirmalya’ into the water. Instead, they have installed large bins shaped as traditional pots or ‘kalashes’ to receive this nirmalya. While this is a good first step, the appropriate management of the nirmalya is still crucial considering the volumes that are collected every year.

Create a world where Lord Ganesha will be pleased to visit over and over again. Lets strive together to celebrate an eco-friendly Ganesh Utsav this year. Ganpati Bappa Morya!
