Natural Remedies


The information and statements made in this article are for educational purposes only and are not intended to replace the advice of your treating doctor. This website does not dispense medical advice, prescribe treatments, or diagnose illness. This information is based on review of assorted research data and should not be interpreted as specific medical advice.

Natural Remedies

While on a trip to a local store recently, I came across an older gentleman who struck up a conversation with me about health and wellness. What he told me was not really new, for I had heard some of this information before, but it was very intriguing to hear him elaborate on this subject. I decided to look further into what he was touting as the best cure and prevention for many illnesses.

Apple Cider Vinegar

Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) has been used throughout history, and for many years as a home remedy. Hippocrates, the "Father of Medicine," used it for its natural cleansing, healing and amazing energizing qualities.

ACV is fermented juice from crushed apples and, like apple juice, it contains pectin, Vitamins B1, B2, and B6; Biotin; Folic Acid; Niacin; Pantothenic Acid; and Vitamin C. Once the apples are crushed, they are then allowed to mature naturally in wooden barrels, as wood seems to boost the natural fermentation process.

Acetic acid is what gives vinegar its tart and sour taste. Acetic is the Latin word for vinegar. It is said that ACV helps with many illnesses and diseases, such as stomach viruses, high cholesterol, sore throats, joint pain, sinus infections and Diabetes, just to name a few.

ACV is also referred to as a remedy for conditions like obesity. While some individuals report that it may cause a feeling of fullness or curb hunger cravings, there is no conclusive evidence as to its effectiveness in preventing obesity, but there are many books, testimonials and information in reference to its benefits. Proper amounts of ACV, taken daily, can help to re-establish healthy pH in the body. When the pH levels in the body are balanced, it is hard for many diseases to develop.

It is rich in natural enzymes, full of zesty natural goodness and contains the amazing 'mother' of vinegar which occurs naturally, as connected strand-like chains of protein enzyme molecules. The natural enzymes can regulate the presence of candida in the body and helps encourage the growth of healthy bacteria, which in turn minimizes the overgrowth of candida and other strains of bad bacteria.

The quality and pureness of the ACV makes all the difference in its efficacy. The health benefits of organic ACV far exceed the cheaper, filtered varieties commonly sold in grocery stores. Commercial varieties found in supermarkets are de-natured, over processed and have been distilled or filtered to make the vinegar look clear so that it appeals to the general public. Raw ACV is rich in potency, has some sediment, and is one of mother nature's most perfect foods. You should purchase only natural, unpasteurized, organic ACV, with an ideal acidity (pH) level of 5 to 7.

ACV is rich in potassium, pectins and phosphorous. Potassium helps relieve muscle cramping, fatigue and heart arrhythmia. It keeps our tissues (internal and external) soft and supple. Potassium serves to regulate growth, hydrates cells, balances sodium levels and promotes optimal performance of the nervous system. The pectin in ACV promotes elimination and healthy bowels. Phosphorus prevents the formation of putrefactive bacteria. Potassium also promotes the growth of cells and tissues and it is believed that the unique combination of potassium and other nutrients found in ACV can lead to the relief of arthritic pain.

Nature's Beautifier

ACV is good for so many things that it would take a book to list them, but here are just a few of its benefits:

As a beauty aid for the hair, the ingredients of ACV will remove build up from styling products and conditioners, strengthen the hair shaft and leave your hair soft and glimmering. As a hair rinse, it will balance hair's pH level, kill bacteria and is a great cure for dandruff;

It is an excellent natural skin tonic and an alternative to expensive products. It will tone and brighten the skin. Be sure to moisturize afterward to keep skin free from dryness;

Animal lovers should ask their veterinarian about using ACV. It has many uses for dogs, such as a remedy for fleas and a fly repellent for horses. It may not be safe to use for all animals, so be sure to get your vet's approval.

The following section on the Gayatri Mantra is always in this newsletter so that you can enjoy the magnificent version by Deva Premal and Miten. Click on the link in the last paragraph to hear this beautiful mantra.

“Om bhur bhuvah svah
Tat savitur varenyam
Bhargo devasya dhimahi
Dhiyo yo nah prachodayat”

In India, one of the most sacred and oldest available Divine hymns is the Gayatri Mantra. In the ancient Vedic literature, this mantra is dedicated to the deity Lord Sun. In our life, the sun represents life-giving energy.

The Gayatri Mantra is considered to be the most important mantra written out in Gayatri meter. Gayatri is personified as a goddess, the consort of Brahma (Sarasvati), and mother of the Vedas.

The Gayatri Mantra should not be chanted for the purpose of material gain, physical or otherwise. This Mantra appeals to pure Consciousness to illumine our hearts and minds. It is a prayer to the Supreme Self to unveil itself and manifest as brilliant wisdom in our life. By repeating the Gayatri Mantra with the right understanding of its sacred meaning, the ordinary negative tendencies in the human mind can be erased to a large extent. This Mantra also is believed to alleviate many fears and will help with the start and successful outcome of any important work.

It begins with the letter AUM (OM). AUM being the sound symbol of Parmatman (Supreme Reality), it is considered to be the first vibration of sound emanating at the beginning of creation. Chanting the Gayatri Mantra is said to have healing, life-giving qualities and elevates the purest, highest consciousness in us; the inner center of our being around which matter functions with mathematical precision. Just as the entire solar system revolves around the sun, without Atman (the light that is our consciousness), bodily matter becomes inert and dead. Without the sun, life would have been impossible.

Learn and chant the Gayatri Mantra for true spiritual connection and blessings! This version of the Gayatri Mantra, is especially beautiful. Listen to it, learn it, and become mesmerized as you become immersed in the meditative sound of the Gayatri Mantra.
