Healing through the Magical Water

Today, there is no guarantee that the food, medicine, or even water that you drink is healthy enough. But we see that children happily survive in slums, whereas some die with strange, inexplicable phenomena like sudden infant death syndrome. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sudden_infant_death_syndrome 

Ayurveda and all ancient medical sciences believe that the mind plays a huge role in health. A balanced mind can maintain a perpetual state of perfect health. Similarly, the mind can change or improve the effectiveness of the food we eat or the water we drink. 

In ancient India, rishis or sages used to keep just a camandal or a unique jug to carry water. It is believed that they had the power to infuse magical qualities in water and survive only on that. 

Ancient Chinese monks practiced the art of bigu. Bigu is a state of complete abstinence from food and water. It is a state of perfect physical sustenance without any gross energy supplement from outside. Imagine a person who does not need to eat or drink anything! But they also achieved the final state of bigu through the use of some herbs and unique magical water. I believe that they prepared this magical water through the power of meditation. https://sites.google.com/site/delawareteasociety/yoked-to-earth-a-treatise-on-corpse-demons-and-bigu

I believe that magic water heals the higher layers of existence and therefore, its effect is immediate and magical. If done properly, it might cure the most impossible disorders immediately.

Daiv vyapashraya

Ayurveda has 3 branches of healing. The most effective and yet the least known is Daiv vyapashraya. The word Daiv means divinity and vyapashraya signifies “to take shelter in” or to apply. The magic water treatment is a past of Daiv vrapashraya chikitsa.

Ayurveda believes that the divine energy that runs our body can be directly contacted. And we can resolve our physical problems through ensuring an unhindered flow of this energy.

According to Charak Samhita, following methods are prescribed for Daiv vyapashraya.

  • 1. Mantra (Hymns)
  • 2. Aushadha (Amulets, Talisman)
  • 3. Mani (Wearing of gems)
  • 4. Mangala (Auspicious ceremony)
  • 5. Bali (Offering to god)
  • 6. Upahara (Gift)
  • 7. Homa(Oblations)
  • 8. Niyamana (Observance of scriptural rules)
  • 9. Prayascita (Atonement)
  • 10. Upavasa (Fasting)
  • 11. Svastyayana (Chanting of auspicious, Hymns)
  • 12. Pranipata (Observance to the god)
  • 13. Gamana (Going to pilgrimage)

The modern field of energy medicine is a part of this vast science. And it is growing very rapidly

Ancient civilizations like Inka, Mayans, Polynasian tribes extensively and effectively practiced mantra healing. We can still find mantra healers in African tribes. Shamanism practiced in native American Tribes is a form of Daiv vyapashraya.

Science Behind The Magic Water

And all this appears real instantly when we look at two mind-boggling scientific experiments – 

Water Memory Experiment

This experiment slows that water exposed to different forms of music and environment.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Water_memory. Besides, this experiment has been repeated many times by different people with consistent results! So water remembers what happens. Probably, the belief that rivers like Ganga, Yamuna, or Narmada are scared is not a myth after all. Testing of Ganga water done in 1856 by a British scientist led to surprising results – https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3225782/

A list of other experiments on Ganga water can be found here – https://www.facebook.com/scientific.vedas/posts/323655977821455. The bottom line is that water can retain the effects of meditation, prayer, and environmental vibrations. 

Moong Sprouts Experiment

In Moong sprouts experiments conducted by heartfulness meditation center, the moong seeds were sprouted in two different conditions – the researchers placed some soaked seed in the meditation room and others in a room with TV and wifi radiations. After a few days, the moong sprouts exposed to Bluetooth, Tv, and wifi turned yellow and died. Whereas, the moong sprouts grown in the meditation room multiplied rapidly and were lush green.

You can also try this experiment at your own home and see the difference!

Double Slit Experiment

this experiment is utterly amazing in the sense that it reflects that the matter might also possess a mind of its own and that we can influence the particle behavior with our mind!

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Double-slit_experiment

So, matter works as the mind directs, consciously, or unconsciously. The great law of attraction also points towards the same thing. Here are some interesting reads regarding the relation of Ayurveda with the law of attraction.

Healing through Magical Water

I learned the method of making healing water through Heartfulness meditation. The book “the heartfulness way” And the procedure is really simple. 

  • Fill a bowl with water. 
  • Close your eyes and meditate on it for 30 minutes with the feeling that this water should heal anyone who consumes it. 
  • Give it to the person concerned. 

This remedy helps in the case of physical and mental disorders equally. And it is completely worth trying. The priceless things in the world are free – whether it is air or water, even food. Nature doesn’t charge for anything. Similarly, if you have faith, medical treatment is also free!

Hope that this information reaches everyone in need!

Wound Healing and swelling removal through half-baked roti (Kachchi Pakki roti)

Tribals (majority Gond tribe) in Baster (Madhya Pradesh) have unique healing techniques. And their efficacy is more astounding than their simplicity. Here, I would like to share one such method of emergency treatment for wounds (esp. with excessive swelling)

I heard this method from a senior Ayurveda doctor posted in Madhya Pradesh tribal zone when I was still a student. Unfortunately, I do not recollect her name as we met very briefly and only once in a meditation center. However, years later, her story encouraged me to try wound healing experiments with sattu. I am incredibly grateful to her and wish her the best!.

Baster is a relatively backward area of Madhya Pradesh, blessed with beautiful forests and abundant wildlife. But other resources like proper medical care, education, infrastructure, etc. are not up to the mark. And therefore, tribals turn to nature for all their requirements. As my devoted senior went to stay and work in the rural areas, she learned to work with abundant natural resources. She had an excellent opportunity to learn the natural healing techniques first-hand from the tribal healers in Baster.

In our brief meeting, she described how she learned a non-invasive folk medicine method from the tribal healer who extracted a splinter from a leg based abscess. Interestingly, the tribal patient himself did not know that there was any foreign object inside the wound. He came with a complaint of a non-healing abscess. By that time, the injury was already 2-3 months old and badly festered.

Kachchi Pakki Roti

Roti is an Indian flatbread. It is heated on both sides equally to ensure proper cooking. However, if the roti is roasted only on one side, one side becomes slightly hard and dry, and the other unbaked part remains soft and doughy.

How to make Kachchi Pakki Roti

Make a regular wheat dough using boiled water.
Make a small roti (flatbread), large enough to cover the wound.
The ideal thickness should be around 3-6 mm. Increase roti’s thickness if the wound is deep and wide. Also, make sure that it is uniformly thick.
Heat the roti on tava for 1-2 min(depending on the thickness) to make one side roasted and slightly dry.
Make sure that the other side of the roti is slightly soft and raw.
The dry part also should not be too hard.

Where to use Kachchi-Pakki roti

In Charak Samhita (Chikitsa Sthana: Ch. 20), the use of roasted flour (rice, channa,jowar, etc.) is indicated to promote healing in the secondary stage of wound-healing.
In line with the above classical text, it is best to use Kachchi Pakki roti in case of edema of any origin. It helps to absorb the excess liquid and prevents fluid stagnation around the injury.
It can be used for extracting foreign objects from an abscess or as a poultice to heal normal wounds.

I would suggest this method in a wound where the basic blood mesh is already formed. It might work wonders for old wounds with a lot of swelling, redness, and inflammation.

I want to try Kachchi Pakki roti in the non-healing wounds of diabetic patients. I was detected with the pre-diabetic state, and my wounds would take an abnormally long time to heal. However, the use of sattu poultice (link) helped to cure my injury without the use of antibiotics. (link) Now, fortunately, with diet and lifestyle change, I am completely healthy.
The bottom line is that if sattu poultice can work for small wounds in a pre-diabetic state, Kachchi Pakki roti also can have a significant effect.

Note:
It is not advisable to use Kachchi Pakki Roti in deep wounds with excess blood flow. It can be used in a secondary stage when the initial blood flow has subsided.

How to use Kachchi-Pakki Roti

  • Make a fresh warm roti immediately before use. The warmth of roti helps to boost blood circulation in the swollen area.
  • Wipe away all moisture, sweat, or pus from the wound.
  • To ensure complete dryness, sprinkle dry turmeric powder on the wound and let it sit there for a few seconds. It will absorb all moisture.
  • Remove the wet layer of turmeric powder and sprinkle fresh powder.
  • Repeat the process till all the moisture is completely removed.
  • If possible, do a little massage around the swollen wound and apply hot, dry fomentation. You can use a heated cloth pad for it.
  • If the wound has a thick layer of dead skin, try to it scrap away as much as convenient. This step will help the wound to heal faster and reduce the rate of decay.
  • Sprinkle a fine layer of dry turmeric powder.
  • Cover the injured area with the unbaked side of roti so that the dough sticks to the injured part.
  • Tie roti with a bandage to keep it in the proper place.
  • Reduce movement in the injured part to ensure that roti stays in place.
  • Change the roti twice a day in a cold/normal climate. You can change it thrice in hot and humid weather.

I understand that this half baked (Kachchi-raw, Pakki-baked) roti resembles the skin in some manner – hard and dry externally, soft and meshy on the inside. And it can serve as an extra layer where the skin can safely deposit its debris without exposure to the harsh external environment or pathogens. Typically, abnormal protrusions like boils, warts, pimples, etc. also serve the same functions in the skin.

Happy Ending!!!

Let’s continue with the tribal story. With the application of this Kachchi Pakki(half baked) roti continuously for a few weeks, she could see the tip of a wooden chip emerging from the abscess. Even the patient had no clue that about the splinter(a sharp piece of wood) inside his calf. But his abscess failed to heal in any other way, which was an indication of something stuck inside.

After a few weeks (I do not have the full details), the fragment came out completely. It was stuck to the roti and was gently pulled out. In fact, the body needed a safe medium to open the abscess and expel the foreign object. Besides, this method also produced excellent results in swelling elimination as well.

This experiment is no more than a tale that I heard from a senior. The final proof in Ayurveda is pratyaksha praman(visible and replicable evidence). I am sharing this information so that if anyone has the facility to experiment on this method with animals/humans safely should try it. I have an intuition that it might work. And if it does, so many complicated things will become more straightforward, and with more such information, emergency healthcare will be so much cheaper, esp. in the rural areas.

Let’s hope that this information multiplies and. I have not used this method personally, and therefore, if you want to experiment with this treatment, try it on a tiny cut/wound. As soon as I get my next cut, I will make sure that I try it and share my experiences with all of you.

Healing wounds with Sattu (Roasted Jowar-chana Flour)

Photo by Pixabay on Pexels.com


A few years back, my health was in a state of complete deterioration. I had multiple disorders – breathing difficulty, vitiligo, and by the end of 2016, I on the stage of pre-diabetes. But in the past three years, I have cured all my problems just by changing my diet and lifestyle. Here I want to share a story about magical wound healing with a traditional Ayurvedic home remedy.

Stress kills!


I had a deficient immunity due to extreme stress. I would get up in the morning and start sneezing. I would also catch cough and cold at the drop of a hat. Besides, I was cooking and working with water all the time because of my baby daughter.


Throughout my life, I had a reasonably good immunity. My wounds would heal, usually. But I believe that my immunity went drastically low. Even small cuts of knives would not get cured. Instead, they would swell and putrefy. And it almost always happens with stress. Stress kills your immunity and makes you more susceptible to all kinds of health problems.

In my case, I loved traveling. I had a well-paying touring job and all of a sudden, I became a stay at home mom. I personally believe that we must have some training for the new moms to help them settle down in their new routine. I hope to start something on these lines.

My daughter was not eating well and according to modern standards, she was underweight. Besides, it took my almost whole day to feed her. So, I felt that I am not earning and neither being a good mom!!! the bottom line was that I was totally stressed. In fact, now I understand better that I was suffering from minor post-partum depression.

Antibiotics are not the last option

Once I ignored a small cut on the outer side of my middle finger, and it swelled and got complicated. I took antibiotics for three days, but there was no improvement. I extended the course of antibiotics for five days, and then the hurt was cured. However, after a few months, I got another cut on my middle finger again, and this time the wound did not heal even after taking a course of 250 mg amyloxine for five days. I went to an allopathic doctor who prescribed 1000 mg amyloxine for seven days. And finally, a small cut on the finger was healed. This incident happened in 2016. But I could notice that my immunity was getting worse with time.

In 2017, I got another cut, and this time I did not want to go through the messy exercise of antibiotics. Every time I took antibiotics earlier, I always felt weaker than before. I felt that at this rate, there will be nothing left in my system except antibiotics. I sincerely believe that Ayurveda is the ultimate medicine, but ironically I never tested classical methods because I was never sure how they would turn out to be, or whether I would be able to implement them properly. I guess most of us don’t intend to explore unless pushed to.

So this time I decided that no matter what, I would try to find some other way to cure the wounds.

Do or Die with Ayurveda

With this cut, I immediately changed my food.

  • started drinking turmeric milk (100 ml milk diluted with 100 ml water, boiled with 10 gm turmeric for 10 min.) twice a day,
  • stopped eating oily food, grains, and vegetables.
  • survived on fruits and turmeric milk for dinner for close to 5-6 days. I think this helped to cleanse my system from the inside.
  • followed all the Ayurvedic rules for great digestion

However, the main break-through was the experiment with sattu or Sakth.


Sattu

Sattu can be made from any kind of roasted grains. Roasted and powdered grains like rice, jowar(sorghum), chana (chickpea) form different types of sattu. The most commonly available sattu is made from roasted channa only . But ideally sattu should contain a combination of chana and jowar (1:4). Therefore, for this experiment, I have used this variety.

https://amzn.to/2NS9tcq

According to Bhava Prakash Ayurvedic Materia media, jowar sattu is especially a wound-healing agent. It helps to balance kapha(swelling) and pitta(inflammation). It is dry and lekhan( has a scraping action). Therefore, it can help to remove extra moisture, to dry the wound faster and remove the dead skin cell as well. It is also particularly mentioned to be very helpful in daha(inflammation).

Chana sattu also helps to control heat and inflammation.
One interesting sattu which usually is not available is rice sattu. It is mentioned in all classical Ayurvedic texts.
Rice sattu is cool, grahi(can help to control bleeding), and light. I have not tried this sattu for wound healing yet. Poha is roasted rice. So, if you choose to experiment with rice sattu, you can grind poha(rice flakes) and use it as a sattu.

Sattu Poultice for the fresh-cut/swollen wound

(based on Charak Samhita – Dvivraniyachikitsadhyaya 25/50)

This classical method can be used for mild bruises, small cuts. I have no record of usage for bigger wounds. However, I would like to try it.

  • When you have a fresh cut wound, wash it properly, and dry it.
  • Apply some dry turmeric powder on it to absorb any remains of water.
  • Wipe off and apply turmeric powder again to cover the wound.
  • Slightly warm chana-jowar sattu in little fat (preferably sesame oil/ghee/combination of both ghee and oil(1:1)) for 20-25 sec on a slow flame.
  • Mix all the ingredients well. Also, sattu should not get burnt. (I used 1 tsp chana-jowar sattu roasted in 1 tsp regular ghee available in the market.)
  • Make a small ball of this oil/ghee mixed sattu and apply it on the wound in the form of a poultice.
  • Secure the poultice with a bandage.
  • Change the poultice minimum twice a day. Make sure that the wound does not get wet with water or sweat.

I followed the above procedure, and clicked the pics of my figure everyday. However, it was 2018 and now I cannot find them anywhere in my drive or my mobile. Sincere apologies for that.

However, I observed the wound healed by itself over a week. And this time, I took no anti-biotics or applied any antiseptic to the injury. Also, I did not use turmeric powder after the first day as the swelling went down immediately.

However, I was really concerned about the wound getting bad all the time. So, I kept checking its status and religiously changed the poultice twice a day. I decided that even if it does go bad, it is only a small cut in the finger, and I can immediately take anti-biotics and apply some antiseptic cream. I had already tried allopathy so many times. And even at a cost, it does bring relief eventually.


But the way wound healed was really miraculous, and that too without taking any other Ayurvedic and allopathic medicine orally. However, I would advise everyone to take 1 tsp Haridra Khand with 100-200 ml warm milk (preferably A2 desi cow milk) twice a day, if you have a bigger or deeper wound. If you don’t like milk, take it with a tsp of ghee or honey (don’t mix ghee and honey).


I am confident that these results are replicable and verifiable. Anyone who experiments with this healing method will witness the same improvements.
Many thanks to Acharya Charak!!! This method is an excellent discovery for me because I am allergic to allopathic medicines, and they always bring more damage to me than good. I hope that it helps you too. If you also happen to experiment with sattu wound healing, first try it on a tiny cut or swelling. Also, please share your success story with me.


In a truly humane society, food and medicine should be free. Through Ayurveda, we can discover the magic of natural cure and curb the menace of reckless greed in the healthcare sector.

The Ayurveda Channel

Here is another method that I have not tried yet but heard it from another Ayurvedic doctor working in the tribal area. She described how she had used half-baked roti for healing wounds. In tribal regions, modern medical resources and medicines usually are not available. But tribals have developed their own extremely effective methods to cure themselves.

Will share soon Wound Healing and swelling removal through half-baked roti (Kachchi Pakki roti)
