Jaggery For Its Health Benefits


Many people will be surprised to know that sugar is actually a Chinese product.No one used sugar in India as late as the 19th century. That is why sugar is called ‘chini’ in Hindi/Tamil which roughly translated to ‘Chinese origin’or China . But if we didn’t use sugar, then what did we use to sweeten our foods and beverages?

Indian Made Jaggery

Indians use jaggery/gur/Vellam which is a complex form of sugar.

Jaggery has innumerable health benefits. Jaggery is usually made with sugarcane juice. It has rough texture and does not dissolve easily. But the healthy benefits of jaggery are undeniable. In a comparison of sugar versus jaggery, the Jaggery Wins.

Here are some health benefits of jaggery that might motivate you to use this complex sugar as an alternative sweetener.

Cools Your Stomach: Jaggery is made from sugarcane juice. When you soak it in water and drink it, jaggery helps to cool your stomach. This is a standard way to keep the body cool in hot Indian summer.

Relaxes You: Jaggery has selenium in very high amounts. Thus having this complex sugar relaxes your nerves. That is why jaggery is often had with rotis at night to have a sound sleep.

Less Calories: When you compare the calories of sugar versus jaggery, the latter has much less calories. Sugar is the simplest form of glucose available to us. But jaggery is solid and tougher to digest. That is why, jaggery is more like a healthy carbohydrate than a form of glucose.

Rich In Iron: Jaggery has iron and that is why women need it. The rich deposits of iron in jaggery can help Indian women who have tendency to be anaemic.

Breathing Therapy For Everyone


breathing therapy

The nose has a left and a right side; we use both to inhale and exhale.

Actually they are different; you would be able to feel the difference. The right side represents the sun, left side represents the moon. During a headache, try to close your right nose and use your left nose to breathe. In about 5 mins, your headache will go? If you feel tired, just reverse, close your left nose and breathe through your right nose.

After a while, you will feel your mind is refreshed. Right side belongs to ‘hot’, so it gets heated up easily, left side belongs to ‘cold’. Most females breathe with their left noses, so they get “cooled off” faster. Most of the guys breathe with their right noses, they get worked up.

Do you notice the moment we wake up, which side breathes faster? Left or right? ?

If left is faster, you will feel tired.
So, close your left nose and use your right nose for breathing, you will get refreshed quickly.

This can be taught to kids, but it is more effective when practiced by adults.

My friend used to have bad headaches and was always visiting the doctor.

There was this period when he suffered headache literally every night, unable to study.

He took painkillers, did not work.

He decided to try out the breathing therapy here: closed his right nose and breathed through his left nose.

In less than a week, his headaches were gone! He continued the exercise for one month.

This alternative natural therapy without medication is something that he has experienced.

So, why not give it a try?
