05. UTTARENI TOOTH POWDER :
Uttareni ( in Telugu language) is known as :Prickly flower in English, Katalati in Malayalam, Apang,chirchira,chirchita in Hindi, and Apang, apamarga in Bengali.
Make powder of 100 gm Uttareni seeds and sieve. Add 10 gm salt powder and store in a bottle. If one brushes his teeth with this powder teeth will strengthen and also whitens. Worms in the teeth will die and decayed teeth get set right.
It is said that our teeth will be strong, white and clean without any dental problems, if we daily clean our teeth using Uttareni twigs. It is my personal experience that by crushing one or two small pieces of Uttareni twigs( or even leaves) into fine paste and by keeping it in your mouth for a sufficient period, it will make your teeth very strong and germ free. Believe me that the uttareni juice is more powerful than many powerful antibiotics which are used to combat toothaches.
Try this daily - First brush your teeth with normal tooth paste before you go to sleep. Next, take 2 -3 small pieces of uttareni twings or leaves ( fresh or dried) and crush then into a fine paste. Allow the paste to remain in your mouth throughout the night. If you feel uneasy with the paste in your mouth, you may swallow it or spit it out. But do not wash your mouth now at this stage so that the Uttareni juice that remains in your mouth will continue to do its job of killing germs overnight. If you can do this daily, I am sure that you will retain all your 32 teeth intact even in your old age.
How to keep Uttareni fresh for a long time ?
Pluck out a fresh uttareni plant along with its roots and cut off the roots. Wash the stems and leaves with fresh water to remove the dirt and dust. Now pluck the leaves and keep them in a separately in a tray. Now, cut the stems into small pieces of about one inch length approximately. Put all these uttareni pieces also on another side of the same tray. Allow them to get dry but they should remain fresh. There should not be any water sticking to leaves and stem pieces. Keep the stems and leaves in separate polythin bags along with small pieces of dry newspaper or any other paper which can obsorbe the moisture released by leaves and stems. Keep these bags in refrigirator. These leaves and stem pices of uttareni can remain fresh from 15 - 30 days. Every day take 2-3 pieces of uttareni stems and 1-2 uttareni leaves and crush them well into fine paste before you sleep.

Its digestive properties are well brought out by those beverages that accompany large meals – roasted jeera is a staple in buttermilk or 'jaljeera', or even the 'aam ka panna' juice made with raw mangoes in the beginning of summer.

Traditional cumin decoctions were used against hookworm infections.
Digestion :Our forefathers knew the importance of 'jeera' as a powerful aid to digestion. Cumin is extremely good for digestion and related problems. Research has shown that cumin may stimulate the secretion of pancreatic enzymes, compounds necessary for proper digestion, break down foods and nutrient assimilation. It also helps in the cure of digestion related problems. Cumin seeds possess an aromatic chemical organic compound known as Cuminaldehyde, which is an integral constituent of its essential oil that is responsible for its healing properties. This volatile oil in cumin seeds helps in activating the salivary glands and facilitates the digestion of food.Another equally important compound in cumin seeds is known as thymol that is responsible for aiding in the secretion of acids, bile and enzymes thus further stimulating the digestion of food. The essential oils present in cumin seeds is what gives the herb its potency in relieving stomach disorders and promoting digestion. The cumin seeds are also rich in dietary fiber and are believed to be an effective remedy against piles.

08. REISHI MUSHROOM :
Hailed in ancient Eastern medicine as the "mushroom of immortality" and the "medicine of kings," you would expect reishi to offer us some pretty astounding health benefits. This prized fungus may be able to boost your immune system, fight cancer, ward off heart disease, calm your nerves and relieve both allergies and inflammation. Reishi contains more than 100 oxygenated lanostane triterpenes, many of which are known for their ability to support our immune defenses.
Reishi also called and known as :- The God's herb. The king of herbs. The herb of kings. The precious herb. The miraculous herb. The master of herbs. The herb of masters. The king of adaptogen. The miracle mushroom. The herb of deathlessness. The miracle herb to attain immortality. The symbol of divinity, longevity and good fortune. The highly ranked herb in herbal pharmacopoeia. The legendary wizard of all superior medicinal herbs.
It is helpful for people with AIDS, leaky-gut syndrome, Epstein-Barr, chronic bronchitis and other infectious diseases. It is used as an aid to sleep, as a diuretic, as a laxative and to lower cholesterol.
Whatever the threat, reishi helps the body maintain its defense against these threats to its equilibrium, helping the body to maintain balance. In this sense, diseases like heart disease and cancer mean that the body is out of balance, which is why an equilibrium-enhancing remedy such as reishi can help so many diverse ailments.
Studies show the Reishi mushroom spores can stunt bacteria growth, reverse heart disease, fight cancer cells and reduce the growth of tumors, lower blood pressure, help allergies, boost and staplize the immune system and protect the liver from toxins in the body. It has also been proven that Reishi mushroom spores lower cholesterol and calm the central nervous system.
Reishi works as a Cardiotonic
For centuries, Reishi has been known as a cardiotonic herb. It was prescribed routinely to those with a "knotted and tight chest" symptoms consistent with both stress and/or coronary artery disease-related angina. Researchers in China found that Reishi improved the blood flow and lowered oxygen consumption in the heart muscle. Similar results were also found by Japanese scientists. They found that Reishi contains ganoderic acids (which belong to a group of natural substances called "triterpenes") which lower high blood pressure, lower cholesterol, and inhibit platelet aggregation (the clumping together of blood cells), which can lead to heart attacks and other circulation problems. In fact, Reishi's triterpenes are so important that in Japan they are used to determine Reishi's quality and authenticity.
Recently, Russian scientists have taken an interest in Reishi. They found that in addition to all the cardiovascular benefits mentioned above, Reishi showed a significant preventive and therapeutic action against plaque build-up ("plaque" is a fatty goo which is comprised of a combination of oxidized cholesterol, calcium, and degenerated white blood cells. It is deposited on the walls of arteries which restricts blood flow by narrowing the passage within arteries resulting in atherosclerosis).
The protection reishi offers against heart disease and stroke is truly remarkable because it helps prevent so many different risk factors, due to its high content of heart-saving substances like sterols, ganoderic acids, coumarin, mannitol and polysaccharides. Experts believe that the ganoderic acids in particular lower triglyceride levels, remove excess cholesterol from the blood, lower blood pressure, reduce platelet stickiness and even help correct arrhythmia. In fact, for 54 people with hypertension unresponsive to medication, taking reishi extract three times a day for four weeks was enough to significantly lower blood pressure.
Reishi can be used to both lower high blood pressure and raise low blood pressure. Reishi is used to eliminate blood stagnation or oketsu in Japan and to inhibit platelet aggregation. Reishi lowered the LDL level in blood and improved the health of those with heart disease in general.
Reishi Mushroom, also known as Ling-Zhi (Chinese), has shown in recent studies to be helpful for heart health, including normal cholesterol, blood pressure, and circulatory system support. Reishi Mushroom is used as a tonic and a sedative. According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, reishi was thought to "mend the heart." Reishi is a cardio tonic that supports normal blood and oxygen flow to the heart.
For centuries, Reishi has been known as a cardiotonic herb. It was prescribed routinely to those with a "knotted and tight chest" symptoms consistent with both stress and/or coronary artery disease-related angina. Researchers in China found that Reishi improved the blood flow and lowered oxygen consumption in the heart muscle.
Reishi is revered for its effect on the heart and respiratory tract because it relieves tightness in the chest. Reishi also affects the circulatory system by lowering blood pressure, blood cholesterol, while balancing LDL/HDL ratios and reducing other blood lipids. Reishi is also specific for asthma, allergies, bronchitis along with many other respiratory problems. This herb is considered a longevity tonic because of its antioxidant effect.It may also be used for Anxiety, nervousness, or a feeling of inner unrest, sometimes accompanied by a feeling of tightness in the chest and heart area.
Reishi in the treatment of Cancer
Research shows that the polysaccharide beta-1,3-D-glucan in reishi boosts the immune system by raising the amount of macrophages T-cells, which has major implications for people suffering from AIDS and other immune system disorders. Quality of life and post cancer survival rates were also seen to increase with reishi treatment.
This immune-boosting action also works wonders in the prevention and treatment of cancer, as the T-cells are then able to fight cancer cells more effectively. However, reishi may help the body defeat cancer in not just one, but four ways. In addition to boosting the immune system, the glucan in reishi helps immune cells bind to tumor cells. Another substance in reishi, called canthaxanthin, slows down the growth of tumors, according to "Prescription for Dietary Wellness" author Phyllis A. Balch and other experts. As a result of these amazing anti-cancer abilities, laboratory research and traditional medicinal usage of reishi to fight cancer is so positive that the Japanese government officially recognizes it as a cancer treatment.
A Mushroom for the Nerves
Reishi mushrooms have been traditionally recommended by Chinese and Japanese herbalists for insomnia due to their "sleep-promoting factor". Long-term use causes a significant promotion of slow wave sleep. Reishi mushrooms are prescribed in China for a number of psychiatric and neurological afflictions, including diseases involving the muscles, anorexia, and debility following lengthy illnesses. In Japan, the dried "mycelium" of Reishi the root-like body that produces mushrooms has been found to be highly effective in the treatment of neuroses caused by "environmental stress". In addition, in an eight-month study of Alzheimer's disease, patients taking a Reishi mycelium product demonstrated significant improvement.
In China, Reishi is used for its muscle relaxing and analgesic (pain-inhibiting) effects. In one study, Reishi alleviated anxiety in 18 of 20 patients after four months' use. It was concluded that the mushroom has an essentially "calmative function", but is neither a narcotic nor a hypnotic.
Normalizes nerves. Some studies show that Reishi preparations can normalize the system of nerves that controls digestion, heartbeat, and the contraction of smooth muscles, called the parasympathetic nervous system. The result often has a calming effect, reducing abnormal fight-or-fight reactions in this system.
Reishi is a superb anti-stress herb. Throughout history it has been used to bring balance into the lives of people who needed help in this department, and that means most everyone. Deep in antiquity, it was routinely used by mountain hermits, monks, Taoist adepts and spiritual seekers throughout Asia because it was believed to help calm the mind, ease tension, strengthen the nerves, strengthen memory, sharpen concentration, improve focus, build will power and, as a result, help build wisdom Reishi is indeed calming and centering. Everyone who takes Reishi notices the peacefulness that seems to accompany its use. Many people are able to stop using chemical drugs. And Reishi seems to be cumulative, gradually strengthening the nerves and actually changing how we perceive life..
Anti-Allergic /Anti-Inflammatory Actions
Studies showed that Reishi extract significantly inhibited all four types of allergic reactions, including positive effects against asthma and contact dermatitis. Reishi could be effectively used in treating stiff necks, stiff shoulders, conjunctivitis (inflammation of the fine membrane lining the eye and eyelids), bronchitis, rheumatism, and improving "competence" of the immune system without any significant side-effects.
Part of the anti-inflammatory effect of Reishi may be due to its free radical scavenging effect. Reishi extract significantly elevates the free radical scavenging ability of the blood, especially against the particularly harmful hydroxyl radicals. The hydroxyl radical scavenging effect of Reishi is so strong that even after the Reishi extract was absorbed and metabolized the scavenging action still continued.
Healing the Liver
Reishi is commonly prescribed in China for the treatment of chronic hepatitis. In treatments lasting 2 to 15 weeks, the overall rate of efficiency was 70.7 to 98.0%. In Japan, Reishi extract has been reported to be effective in treating patients with liver failure. In animal studies of mice with carbon tetrachloride-induced hepatitis, the extent of liver damage was significantly inhibited by continuous dosing with Reishi tincture, and the regeneration of the liver was promoted.
There are 112 types of Triterpenopids present in Reishi/Ganoderma Lucidum mushroom. Those are builder of Cells. Activate the inactive cells, improves digestive functions, strengthen the muscles specially of Heart and Liver Cells. Excellent in preventing a wide range of allergies. Improve natural healing ability of the body. Ganoderic Essence. (GE) That is a combination of various vegetables essences present in Reishi. It takes care of Skin health internally, acts like Beta Carotenes and other Anti-Oxidant, prevents Cell degeneration. It is an anti-aging so retain youthfulness for long period. Strengthen Immune System and keep full alert against infection
How does Ganoderma works in you
Ganoderma is the only herb that can address the two reasons of why people get sick (toxins and imbalance of the body function). First, Ganoderma will scan your body and cleans the toxins that have accumulated in your body. Second, it will then balance the function of your body.
Third, it will nourish every cell in your body. Fourth, most important of all (forget the 3 but never forget the fourth action); Ganoderma has the raw materials needed in the creation /formation of new cells. As we grow in age, our cell wall hardens making it hard for the nutrients to go inside and for toxins to go out. If your cells are weak, their replications are not the best cells you want. Since RG/GL capsules have the raw materials needed in the creation of new cells, the new cells reproduced are young, healthy and strong cells. This is what you really want. Replication of cells is faster coming from those new born cells replacing the old, unhealthy and weak cells with young, healthy, strong cells. That is why it is you will become young looking and healthy. Secondly, your soldier cells (protecting you from viruses, bacteria, etc) will dramatically increase in numbers allowing you to fight back on enemy viruses and bacteria. That is why it is common to find people using ganoderma to be healthy, away from disease and looking younger everyday. It is also common among unhealthy people to get colds and fever easily when they are near people who carry viruses, bacteria and the likes. The emperors who quarrel just to get hold of this miraculous herb have indeed a relevant reason for doing so. Your immunity increases. Your body is now functioning at its optimum level and there is no better doctor than your own body. Our body is the best doctor! !!!!!GANODERMA DOES NOT CURE THE DISEASE!!!!! It cures your body so that your body can cure disease.
The Reishi mushroom not only works like a miraculaous medicine for many incurable diseases but it also works like an expert doctor / physician in detecting the body diseases before it starts curing the same. The effects of Ganoderma on the body have to go through five (5) stages:
1. Scanning (1-30 days) - Ganoderma helps to detect hidden disease and toxins in the body and proceed to regulate the body functions. During the process, the body will show symptoms- known as 'ailment reflection". This reaction is not a side effect, but to help us identify the ailing area. This is the scanning effect of Ganoderma.
2. Cleansing-Detoxification (1-30 weeks) - Ganoderma is known as "King of toxin removers" for its power to remove excessive uric acid, lactic acid, excess cholesterol, fat deposits, dead tissue and toxins accumulated in the body. Toxins are discharged through the circulation system - (kidney and liver) by urination and stool, through perspiration, boils, rashes, phlegm and mucus.
3. Regulation (1-12 months) - During the restoring process, many reactions can be observed. Do not be alarmed, this is the sign of the body healing itself. If the reaction is too strong, reduce the dosage.
4. Building-Recovery (6-24 months) - Ganoderma will continue to repair the affected body parts, and strengthen the immune system to be more resistant to diseases. It also supplies the essential elements and vitamins for speedy recovery.
5. Rejuvenation (1-3 years) - The ultimate aim of consuming Ganoderma is to maintain the body functions at its optimum and restore youthfulness.
