Doshas or Fundamental Energies

As per Ayurveda, the three doshas (fundamental energies) are Vata (Wind), Pitta (Fire), and Kapha (Earth) and they each govern activity within a region of the body.
Doshas or Fundamental Energies

Doshas or Fundamental Energies


The main seat of Vata is lower abdomen below the umbilicus. It is responsible for all movements in the body.

Vata is responsible for enthusiasm, breathing(inspiration and expiration), all movements and actions (talking, walking and body movements, activities of the sense organs). Vata circulates throughout the body, and helps in transportation of its supporting Dhatus (elements) such as the rasa (fluids), rakta (blood), etc. Vata creates normal vibration of natural urges like, excretion of urine, faeces, hunger, thirst, flatus, sneeze, sleep, yawn, belch, etc.


Pitta is situated mainly in the upper abdomen, above the umbilicus and below the thorax. It is responsible for digestion and metabolism.

Pitta gives vision(as opposed to perception which is due to vata), hunger, thirst, taste perception, digestion, heat-production, softness and suppleness of the body, luster, cheerfulness and intelligence.


Kapha’s Main seat is chest region (thorax). Kapha is responsible for strength, stability, tolerance and immunity.

Kapha maintains integrity and smoothness of joints, general stability of the body and build, potency and strength, forbearance, courage and lack of greed.

The Foods that Cheer You Up!


Natural anti-depressants: the food that cheers you up!

Depression can completely destroy your well-being. In my estimation, it can bring about significant negative outcomes than all the improper food that you are exposed to.

Doctors normally prescribe antidepressants as the conventional mode of treatment. However, it’s imperative to comprehend that these therapies do nothing to address your fundamental issue. As a rule they will essentially not work; in others, they may exacerbate the condition.

The Anti-Depressant Illusion

If you are taking customary remedies, they just don’t work and can really bring about numerous individuals to commit suicide and have various other untoward reactions. Antidepressants are very powerful and past studies have demonstrated that they can produce many side effects such as:

  • Increase the risk to diabetes
  • Can harm your immune system adversely
  • Increase risk of suicidal tendency

When you’re confronting life’s “average” good and bad times, recollect that there’s nothing wrong with feeling blue from time to time. Truth be told, controlling your sentiments, whatever they may be, is one of the reasons why the Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) lives up to its expectations so well.

However, in the event that you have been feeling down for two weeks or more, and have lost enthusiasm for everything, I’d urge you to consider the following alternatives for recuperating, and not utilize possibly risky medications as your first choice.

The best way to Heal Depression

Physical exercise is a standout amongst the most effective antidepressants. Various studies demonstrate that exercise can enhance your inclination and is a gentle method to deal with depression and stress.

Address your anxiety – Depression is an intense condition and not a sickness in any case. Rather, it’s a sign that your body and your life are not in equilibrium.

This is so critical to recollect, in light of the fact that when you begin to view depression as an ailment, you think you have to take a medication to deal with it. As a general rule, you should do nothing more than try and bring stability back your life.

Foods effect your mood and well-being

Foods produce a great effect on your mood and general well being. Eating whole foods and avoiding sugar and grains will help balance your insulin and leptin levels, which is another capable device in coping with depression.

It is also recommended to add omega-3 fatty acids to fight with sadness and depression.

Sufficient exposure to sunlight helps your body get adequate vitamin D and it is additionally an important element in dealing with depression naturally or keeping it under control.

Incorporating these four essential things – working out, managing anxiety, eating right, and getting enough sun exposure will make you feel energized, and on top of the world. Whether you need to overcome despondency or simply need to stay active, these small changes to your life will get you through any difficult situation.

Raising Healthy Kids : Part Two – Vaccine Side Effects


Vaccine Side Effects

At Biogetica we choose the middle road and want to present the facts as is. Our Doctors have prepared these posts for the most common and pressing questions that parents face today when deciding how to raise healthy children. This follow-up to the post on Immunity is by Dr. Gauri Mane on Vaccine Side Effects.

Are Vaccine Side Effects a Part of the Vaccination Program?

Most of us are plagued by this niggling thought every time we set out to give ourselves or our kids a vaccination shot. Vaccines are continually monitored for safety, however like any other medication, vaccine can cause side effects. It’s tricky, but a decision not to immunize your child is risky and could put your child and others who come into contact with him or her at risk of contracting a potentially deadly disease.

Whilst all vaccines have the potential to cause side effects in some people, the reality is that most tend to be mild and don’t last long. If you are skeptical about an illness or suspect any untoward side effect, please consult your doctor.

Common side effects include:

  1. Inflammation at the injection site, like pain, swelling, redness.
  2. Mild fever
  3. Shivering
  4. Muscle pain
  5. Generalised weakness and fatigue
  6. Headache

Rare Side Effects of the Vaccine

A far less common but serious vaccine side effect is an allergic reaction, also known as an anaphylactic reaction. Though they occur very rarely, are dramatic and potentially life threatening. They are completely reversible if treated promptly and accurately by any healthcare person.

Few Tips to do if Your Child is Unwell After Vaccination

Most common side effects in babies and young children are at the site of injection. They are:

  • Swelling
  • Redness
  • A small hard lump or nodule.

These symptoms usually pass away within a couple of days and you don’t even need to do anything about it. Children may develop a fever; try to keep your child cool at such times. Give them plenty of liquids and make sure they are not wearing too many layered clothes. Avoid giving them a bath, instead sponge them or put a fan on them. You can also give them a dose of paracetamol or ibuprofen liquid after consulting your pediatrician.

The Time for Fruit


How to Eat Fruit

A lot has been written on when we should ideally eat our portion of fruit. There are several myths doing the rounds as everyone seems to have a different theory on it.

So eating fruits is a whole new ball game now. It’s no longer as simple as buying them from the market, cutting and popping them in the mouth. There are timings, nature of fruit and different combinations that should be considered if you intend to derive maximum benefit from them.

Before we dwell on the right time of eating fruits and should they be consumed before or after meals, let’s get some facts straight.

How does the Stomach process Fruit?

Some Nutritionists swear that fruits should be eaten alone or with other fruits only, before a meal, on an empty stomach, because fruits have high carbohydrate and water content and easily pass from the stomach to the small intestine and this process can be hindered resulting in the fruits fermenting and rotting if they are combined with other foods.

In reality, the stomach performs three tasks. First, the stomach stores the swallowed food and liquid. Next, it mixes up the food, liquid, and the digestive juice resulting in the mixture chyme. Lastly, the stomach empties its contents slowly into the small intestine.

Yes, Carbohydrates are easily digested; however fruits are technically made up of carbohydrates, vitamins, minerals, water, and fiber. Higher the amount of fiber, slower will be your digestion. Moreover, fermentation occurs in the presence of bacteria, but the stomach PH is highly acidic due to high concentrations of hydrochloric acid, and so the bacteria are killed before they are able to reproduce, thus debunking the fruit rotting myth.

Enzymes digest proteins, fats and carbohydrates concurrently

You may have also heard that the body can’t digest the carbohydrates present in fruit when combined with other foods.

Factually, the body produces different digestive enzymes for proteins, fats and carbohydrates and these nutrients are broken down and absorbed at different stages of the digestive process. If the above claim was substantial, then we would not have digested even a single meal since most foods are a combination of nutrients.

Proper food combinations provide synergistic effects  

Now that we’ve established that fruits can be eaten before or after meals. It is important to note that proper food combinations can aid the digestion process and optimize nutrient absorption. According to Ayurvedic principles, every food has three characteristics – taste, heating or cooling energy, and a post-digestive effect. So, if you combine foods that have opposite effects, you may experience indigestion, fermentation, putrefaction and gas formation.

e.g- Iron is absorbed better when consumed with  Vitamin C rich foods and vegetables, and  eating bananas with milk may produce phlegm, and cause congestion, sinus and allergies.

Although, this is a general guideline and food combination effects also depend on a host of other factors like your individual metabolism, food allergies, the adapting power of your digestive system etc. It is therefore important that you consult your doctor or a registered dietitian for specific guidance on incorporating a fruit in combination with your food in case you have a doubt.

Overall, fruits are undoubtedly one of the most delicious and healthy edibles provided by nature and the question should not be whether you eat them before or after a meal or in combination with some other food, rather you should want to know how to incorporate this health boosting food as much as possible in your diet.


Raising Healthy Kids : Part One – Immunity


Your Child’s Immunity

This is a series on the questions that parents are asking themselves on what is the best way to raise their children ‘naturally’. At Biogetica we choose the middle road and want to present the facts as is. Our Doctors have prepared these posts for the most common and pressing questions that parents face today when deciding how to raise healthy children. Our first post is by Dr. Gauri Mane on Immunity and Misconceptions around Vaccines.

Immunisation is surrounded by myths and misconceptions. Every parent wants to get the best immunity developed in their child. Many misconceptions about vaccines have persisted for decades because of a poor understanding of how vaccination works.

speak to a Biogetica Doctor today raise Healthy Kids the natural way

Raise Healthy Kids the Natural Way

Combination Vaccines

The most common myth is that that a child’s immune system can be “overloaded” if the child receives multiple vaccines at once. This concern first began to appear as the recommended childhood immunization schedule expanded to include more vaccines, and as some vaccines were combined into a single shot. However, studies have repeatedly demonstrated that the recommended vaccines are no more likely to cause adverse effects when given in combination than when they are administered separately.

Statistical Effectiveness

When there’s an outbreak of a disease that’s rare for a given area, such as measles, unvaccinated people aren’t the only ones at risk. Because no vaccination is 100% effective, some vaccinated individuals will get the disease as well. In fact, during an outbreak, the number of vaccinated individuals who get sick will often outnumber the unvaccinated people who get sick. This, however, is not because vaccines are ineffective, but because there are so few people who avoid vaccination in the first place.

Chickenpox as an Example

Improved hygiene and nutrition, among other factors, can certainly lower the incidence of some diseases. Perhaps the best evidence that vaccines, and not hygiene and nutrition, are responsible for the sharp drop in disease and death rates is chickenpox. If hygiene and nutrition alone were enough to prevent infectious diseases, chickenpox rates would have dropped long before the introduction of the varicella vaccine, which was not available until the mid-1990s.

Need for Caution

It is also said that do not give a live vaccine if your child’s immunity is weakened. Live vaccines are ones that contain the virus or bacteria they’re supposed to protect against, albeit in a weakened, inactivated or dead form.

It’s a fact that your child shouldn’t have live vaccines, such as BCG (tuberculosis vaccination) or MMR, if:

  1. your child is taking high-dose steroid tablets, or is taking lower doses either alongside other drugs or over a long time.
  2. your child is being treated for cancer with chemotherapy or radiotherapy, or has had these treatments within the last six months
  3. your child has had an organ transplant and is on immunosuppressant drugs
  4. your child has had a bone marrow transplant and finished all immunosuppressive therapy within the last 12 months

Natural Cures for Allergies


Natural Cures for Allergies

Allergies are adverse immune system reactions to a substance that would normally be considered harmless.

Causes of Allergies

Allergic reactions are caused by exposure to allergens. An allergen is a protein that the body judges to be foreign and dangerous. Possible allergens include specific foods, environmental toxins, pollens, molds, mites, animal dander and a host of other irritants. Once exposed to an allergen, the immune system releases specific antibodies to destroy the enemy allergen, setting in motion a complex series of events involving many biochemicals. These chemicals then produce inflammation or other symptoms of an allergy response. Allergic responses can range from mild to severe, where prompt professional medical advice may be required.

Allergic Reaction Symptoms

Common symptoms of a typical allergic reaction include breathing congestion, inflamed, bloodshot, or scratchy eyes, watery eye, tears, sneezing, coughing, itching, nosebleeds, puffy face, flushing of the cheeks, dark circles under the eyes, runny nose, swelling, hives, vomiting, stomachache, and intestinal irritation or swelling. More severe reactions include constriction of the bronchial tubes (asthma) and difficulty breathing or even anaphylactic shock, which can be fatal if not treated in time.

Allergies can also result in digestive stress, gas, and indigestion. Sensitive people may feel irritation on their tongue or mouth.

Living with Allergies

Overall, the underlying causes of allergy and sensitivity are dietary and lifestyle factors specifically titled as imbalanced immune function, barrier function default (such as “leaky gut” syndrome), and toxic overload. Each of these are, in varying degrees, responsible for the development and continuation of allergy and sensitivity.

We have posted on diet and home remedies for allergies in the past. Additionally, there are natural cures for allergies that do not involve the use of pharmaceutical drugs. The Natural Cures website will show you how you can treat your allergies naturally, and well as to show you how you can make lifestyle changes that will improve your general health.



You Are What You Eat


Eat Your Way to Health

Nutrition is essential not only for life, but also for a healthy living. This is an old saying and it still holds true. Nutritious food is the key to good health but people take their diet for granted.

The connection between what you eat and how you feel

We need food not just to sustain, but to Feel better. Consuming a wide variety of healthy foods is the only way our body can get enough nutrients.

The World Health Organization’s (WHO) Food Pyramid and food recommendations were established after extensive research and are updated regularly. The goal is to make sure that people understand all the different nutrients required by our body to stay healthy.

“Good nutrition – an adequate, well balanced diet combined with regular physical activity – is a cornerstone of good health. Poor nutrition can lead to reduced immunity, increased susceptibility to disease, impaired physical and mental development, and reduced productivity.” – WHO on Nutritition

Food Pyramid

Protein-energy malnutrition (PEM) is a form of malnutrition where there is inadequate calorie or protein intake. PEM is fairly common worldwide in both children and adults. Adequate protein and calcium intake is required especially in our growing years.

Heart Disease, High BP, Cholesterol

Research shows that the right nutrition optimizes health and consuming adequate vitamins and minerals can also lower disease risk. Studies suggest, a diet rich in whole grains, fruits and vegetables but low in saturated fats can help protect against the development of Heart diseases, High Blood Pressure and Cholesterol.

You are what you Eat

Consuming a well-rounded, balanced  and varied diet will go a long way towards making sure a person has the nutrients they need to stay healthy. Our body uses everything we put into it, and what we give it determines how it’s used — for good health, or for bad.

The second part of eating your way to good health is understanding and optimizing how well your body is absorbing the nutrients in your diet. In further posts we will discuss this.


Removing Sodium Benzoate from the Supply Chain


Natural Health free from Preservatives

Two or three years ago at Biogetica we dumped certain manufacturers and brands for using sodium benzoate. I also mentioned how Sodium benzoate mixed with Vitamin C was a possible carcinogen.

Manufacturers and brands thought we were being excessive and said its completely legal globally and the data against Sodium Benzoate is questionable. I said sorry, questionable isn’t good enough for Biogetica and we moved over to a patented encapsulation process that was preservative-free and still had a 2 year shelf life.

Today, the FSSAI in India has finally banned Sodium Benzoate and it ain’t just Maggi, I’m glad to see that someone in India is leading us back to purity.

It will take some time to kick-in though and the gripe water you may buy for your baby meanwhile is still full of Sodium Benzoate and 3 other “questionable preservatives”…If you want info on truly pure alternatives…holler at me!

Trigeminal Neuralgia

Posted in Trigeminal Neuralgia

Trigeminal Neuralgia is a disease characterized by paroxysmal occurrence of pain within one or more divisions of the trigeminal nerve. The Trigeminal nerve has its branches all over the face, from the jaws to the forehead. Affections of this nerve cause short-lived episodes of agonising pain mainly on one side of the face. Even a mild sensation like a gentle breeze or a splash of water is sufficient to trigger an attack. It is one of the most painful afflictions of the human body. It mostly affects middle-aged and geriatric individuals and is more rampant in women.

An allopathic treatment for Trigeminal Neuralgia includes anti-inflammatory, pain killers and multivitamins. However these allopathic treatments do not cure Trigeminal Neuralgia. They only help in subsiding the symptoms.

Biogetica aims at providing holistic solutions and its multi disciplinary kits that combine the virtues of Ayurvedic herbs, resonance homeopathic remedies and potentized bio-energetic remedies have helped many individuals regain normalcy in face of the debilitating pain.

We, at Biogetica, are firm believers of the fact that nature is the only one stop store for addressing all ailments and handicaps. Nature is the only resource to achieve balance on the road from disease to ease.

Possible Reasons for Baldness in Men

post on 6:30 am
Posted in Alopecia, Hair Loss

A healthy crop of hair signifies health, vitality and vigour. Hair loss is a major concern both in men and women alike. However, men are at a higher risk of going complete bald compared to women because of their constitutional makeup.

As per the American Hair Loss Association, two –thirds of men experience hair loss by the time they turn 35 and by age 50, around 85% of men report significantly thinner hair.
There are several factors that contribute to men losing their mane. Albeit, some of them are temporary whereas others irreversible.

  1. Genetic Disposition.

    You can blame your tendency to lose hair on the genes you’ve inherited from one or both of your parents, as this is the most common reason for hair loss. This condition is called androgenetic alopecia. This refers to the commonly heard male pattern baldness, which is thinning of hair in an M shaped pattern. The genes make the hair follicles susceptible to androgens including testosterone and this leads to them shrinking gradually, producing thinner hair eventually resulting in no growth.

  2. Physical Trauma.

    Any episode of shock; physical, emotional, or psychological puts tremendous pressure on the body. This results in a surge of hormones and metabolites in the body, and often also triggers a hair loss condition called Telogen effluvium. Hair has a pre-mediated life cycle; a growth,rest, and shedding phase. Studies indicate that when the body is in a state of shock, the hair’s growth cycle is also disrupted, resulting in more hair being pushed in the shedding phase. The effects are visible three to six months after the traumatic incident. However, this is a temporary situation and hair starts growing back after the body has recovered.

  3. Hormonal Changes.

    Men suffering from conditions like hypothyroidism have less hormones being produced in their body and this could also lead to hair loss. Once the medical condition is treated, hair growth is restored.

  4. Auto-immune disorders.

    This condition is called alopecia areata. It happens when the body’s immune system starts attacking the hair follicles, resulting in patches of hair loss on the scalp. The hair loss can be reversible or irreversible depending on the type and severity of the condition.

  5. Infections.

    Ringworm is a fungal infection that affects the scalp and hair leading to scaly patches and loss of hair. This condition mostly arises due to poor hygiene and is commonly found in children, although adults are equally at risk.

  6. Medical treatments.

    One of the most common side effects of chemotherapy is the gradual loss of hair. Even drugs like anticoagulants, anti-thyroid medications, anti-convulsants, and beta-blockers among others cause hair loss amongst the patients. Hair normally grows back once the patient has recuperated.

  7. Nutritional Deficiency.

    A poor diet, malnutrition, biological defects or deficiencies can cause hair loss. Lack of protein and iron majorly contribute to this condition. Vitamin B12 deficiency is also believed to lead to hair loss.

  8. Trichotillomania.

    This is an obsessive compulsive disorder in which the person repeatedly pulls hair out of the scalp, eyelashes or eyebrows. Hair regrows if the habit is stopped; otherwise it could lead to permanent scarring if continued for a long period of time.

  9. Aging.

    This is a natural process, as one grows older, hair tends to become brittle and breaks off more easily and the hair follicles too don’t grow as much hair.

  10. Hair Styling and other Treatments.

    Hair loss can also occur due to pulling and tying your hair back tightly, excessive hairstyling, hot oil treatments, use of chemicals and dyes. Hair often grows back,  when these things are avoided.

Is hair loss curable?

As mentioned, hair loss can be due to a host of reasons. Many a times,if the underlying condition is treated hair starts growing again. However, in some cases treatment is essential to augment hair growth. Conventional treatment for hair loss include steroidal injections, creams,  shampoos, surgery, laser therapies and wigs. Medications like min ox idyl, finasteride, squaric acid dibutyl ester (SADBE) and diphenylcyclopropenone (DPCP) are also prescribed for alopecia. However, these allopathic drugs do not cure alopecia. They only suppress the symptoms for a short period of time before they reoccur again and also cause an array of side effects in the body.

Biogetica aims at holistic healing, and its multi disciplinary kits comprise ayurvedic formulations, homeopathic herbal extracts as well as natural supplements. All these have a cumulative and a synergistic effect on the body thereby promoting hair growth by addressing the root cause.

This kit consists of three complementary therapies for hair loss.

Keeping abreast with the latest research in hair transplant and hair replacement, Biogetica also provides Anagrow or Anagain-an advanced plant stem cell solution which is believed to provide the building blocks for hair to regrow.

Losing hair is a distressing factor, but with the right information, diagnosis, treatment, and care, you are in a better position to retain your crowning glory.


Do Dietary supplements actually help?


Do Dietary supplements actually help?

The Dietary Supplement industry is thriving rather booming with the adage that these supplements complement to a healthy living. They are available in all forms and shapes, ranging from powders, pills, capsules, soft-gels, nutrition bars to fluids.

These supplements encompass

  • Minerals
  • Vitamins
  • Herbs/Botanicals
  • Amino Acids (the primary building blocks of protein)
  • Enzymes
  • Natural Sources (fish oil)
  • Glandulars (nutritional supplements made from various organs and tissues of mammals)

They are widely available in supermarkets, health food stores, grocery markets, pharmacies and online too.

Do Supplements add value?

There is an ongoing war on whether supplements are necessary or not? Supplements can be essential. We all need these nutrient building blocks and may not be getting them from our daily diet.

At times we may eat a healthy diet, however still be nutrition deficient as our body is incapable of absorbing the nutrients optimally. Studies have shown that most of the time absorption is the reason for the deficiency. This is where Homeopathy and Ayurveda may prove beneficial.

There are various types of dietary/nutritional supplements. Vitamin and mineral supplements contain micronutrients that are supposed to help a healthy body function efficiently. Herbal (or botanical) supplements are nutritional supplements that have medicinal properties. These herbal supplements generally support a localized area of the body such as the hair, eyes, heart, bones, liver or skin.


FDA Norms

The FDA does not regulate Dietary supplements as stringently as it regulates drugs. Being highly unregulated, these supplements can have detrimental effects or may also interact with the other medications when used concomitantly. Therefore, it is highly advisable to consult a Health care practitioner before consuming any supplement especially if you are:

  • Pregnant
  • Nursing a baby,
  • Suffer a chronic medical condition like diabetes, hypertension, or heart disease.

How does one judiciously use supplements?

Although the efficacies of some dietary supplements are documented, the claims of others have yet to be established. Thus, it’s vital to make smart choices. Moreover, it is important to discern whether the supplement is chemically synthesized or obtained from natural sources.

LIFE isn’t just molecules and laboratory synthesized vitamins won’t have the photon and electron spins of those derived from natural food. Biogetica products are all derived from natural food sources and are scientifically formulated to ensure optimum potency, safety and efficacy.

For the supplements to be absorbed and assimilated, it is necessary to adjust and optimize the terrain of the body. Biogetica uses herbs and advanced resonance homeopathy to this effect. Herbs balance the 5 elements in the body and hence balance its energies and terrain. Homeopathics give the body specific information, reminding it of what is to be done.

We, at Biogetica strive to improve lives, through holistic healing, natural remedies and bio-energetic therapies. All our products go through a stringent quality check and are formulated from the highest quality ingredients to ensure we meet all of our standards.


Are the mangoes that you’ll eat safe???


What’s the first thing that comes to your mind, when you hear the word ‘Mango’? For me, it’s a vivid image of a scrumptious, delectable, mouthwatering entity that I can devour in no time. Let’s face it mangoes have always ruled the roost and have earned the mantle of being called the King of fruits not only because of its enticing flavor but also due its nutritional reserves.

Indian summers are replete with mangoes being served in every possible edible form to suit one’s taste buds. However, consuming them may lead to detrimental effects on one’s body.


Many farmers and traders in a bid to elude a possible glut that cut into their profits, resort to methods of synthetically harvesting the fruit. Although some chemicals are approved for artificial ripening like ethylene gas, farmers opt for hazardous ones like calcium carbide that gives the fruit a deceptive full grown healthy demeanor at a cheaper rate.

What is Calcium Carbide?

It’s a chemical compound that is composed of calcium and carbide and is used industrially to produce acetylene, a flammable gas. Calcium Carbide is also used in industries to manufacture several chemical substances, in carbide lamps and to manufacture steel and plastic.

Hazardous effects of Calcium Carbide

This chemical has been pulled up for both its short and long- term debilitating effects. It contains lethal agents like arsenic and phosphorous that cause several anomalies in the human body:

  • Headache
  • Mood disturbances
  • Sleepiness
  • Dizziness
  • Memory loss
  • Mental confusion
  • Cerebral edema

The free radicals from carbide play a major role as a precursor of cancer, heart ailments, stroke, arthritis and possible allergies too.

If an expectant woman consumes these synthetically ripened fruits, it can lead to an involuntary abortion and/or developmental complications if the child is born.

The other peril that calcium carbide poses is the volatility of its reaction when mixed with water. It produces acetylene (a combustible gas) and lime. The heat of this reaction is so high that it can at times exceed  the  ignition point for acetylene(305 degrees Celsius)  causing an explosion.

How does one discern a naturally ripe Mango from a chemically ripened one?

Parameters Naturally ripened Mango Chemically ripened by Calcium Carbide
Texture Ordinary looking, not uniformly colored Deceivingly Ripe, uniformly colored
Aroma Good Faint Odor
Taste Sweet and succulent Hard and non-juicy
Shelf life Longer Short, black patches appear on the skin within 2 to 3 days


It is advisable that before consumption, one should soak the fruits in water for some time and thereafter wash it thoroughly so that the chemicals are washed away. Refrain from buying fruits that are non- seasonal, as they are likely to be synthetically treated. The actual mango season starts towards the end of April, try resisting the temptation until then.

Thus, look out for the tell tale signs, be judicious, make healthy choices and enjoy a lip smacking mango season ahead.




One SIZE does not Fit ALL


One SIZE does not Fit ALL when it comes to natural medicine!

The Pendulum has finally swung and the entire world is moving back towards nature and her medicines.

This is great news for people like me who have dedicated their life’s work to giving natural medicine the respect it deserves on the planet today. This switch in mindset is also most likely to help rid the planet of many chronic ailments that are exacerbated by the short sightedness of chemical medicines that merely suppress symptoms.

To me, the argument for natural medicine is fairly simple.  When a car bumper made of metal breaks, we fix it with metal. When a desk made of wood breaks we fix it with wood.  Hence when a body made of nature begins to malfunction why should we use chemicals to fix it? Isn’t nature the only thing that can bring life into balance?

Allopathic medicine has an outlook which is primarily if not entirely, molecular.  Life and its numerous functions are broken down into their molecular components and interfered with in terms of molecular interactions. Yet, few point to the obvious fact that molecular interactions cannot create life and that there is much more to life than molecules alone. Even identical molecules will act very differently depending on whether they were derived from naturally occurring food or synthesised in a lab.  The synthesised molecule will never demonstrate the electron and photon spins that one can clearly see in food that comes from nature.

The 5 Element Theory

What worries me now is that most nutritionists and Doctors from western traditions that have adopted herbology and natural medicine are still thinking in terms of molecules and not the entire spectrum of molecules, energies and information that constitute life and consciousness.  They are also doing so without truly understanding the tenets of individual constitution and the basics of 5 element theory which lie at the root of all ancient herbal systems such as traditional Chinese medicine and Ayurveda. This is quickly leading to a situation where many looking for natural solutions are being misinformed and misled into trying something that may do more harm than good.

from the kitchen to medicine the many uses of Garlic

Garlic Cloves

I will use Garlic as an example to further illustrate my aforementioned point.  The medical properties of Garlic have been expounded with numerous recent articles by extremely popular Doctors who have taken to nature’s medicines, and gained popularity for doing so.

These articles lead one to believe that Garlic is a potent Anti-viral with numerous health benefits for all, regardless of one’s personal constitution.  An Ayurvedic or Chinese Doctor however would immediately disagree as they know that Garlic is to be used only for certain constitutions exhibiting certain symptoms. Garlic when studied in terms of 5 element theory is generally considered hot, fiery and a plant that can increase the fire in the body.  Garlic is great for a person who is generally low on fire but not good for someone with a Pitta constitution that is already too hot.  Yet these articles do not even touch upon this important and life altering distinction and blindly prescribe it to all without realising that it can further imbalance upto 40% of the worlds population that is considered to be of a Pitta constitution!

Many such articles mention the immune boosting properties of Garlic and call it an Anti-Viral without distinguishing between the 5 element nature of the Viruses at hand. If someone has a cold or flu which are regarded as COLD viruses, garlic will increase the heat in the body and help it get rid of them.  However if someone has a HOT virus such as herpes and then starts to take Garlic their condition will decline rapidly and they will eventually be led into a situation where they once again start distrusting natures medicines. Hence I am led to believe that these articles are actually doing more harm than good buy misleading people.

One Size Does Not Fit All

I hope that this article serves as a wake up call to Doctors prescribing natural products so that they may look deeper into the ancient sciences of herbology and learn that when it comes to natural medicine “One SIZE does not fit all”.

I also hope that this article serves as reminder to people everywhere that there is a lot more complexity to natural medicine than most people pushing their hype tend to know currently.

Herbs that do one body good can do another body harm, and therefore one must be extremely careful when it comes to herbal supplements and medicine.

We at Biogetica formulate each and every product based on deep understandings of Ayurveda and Traditional Chinese Medicine. Seldom do we sell a single herb as we know well the herbs that will support its desired effect within the body! Even the cellular transports we use within our formulations are chosen based on a deep understanding of their nature with respect to the five elements.

If you are already taking supplements or herbs we suggest you speak with one of Doctors for free on so that they can truly evaluate the supplements in light of your individual constitution.


Garlic: A Wonder Herb (Who should eat and who should not!)


Garlic A Wonder Herb

from the kitchen to medicine the many uses of Garlic

Garlic Cloves


Garlic, a common house hold vegetable / herb used for centuries, has emerged as a centre of attraction to medical scientists all over the world.

Many scientific studies have revealed its magical medicinal and nutritional properties and its (could be!) potential role in restoring Cardiovascular health, as an Anti cancer food supplement, as a potent Anti-bacterial, Anti-viral and Anti-fungal agent, as a very good digestive aid, as an Anti inflammatory and anti obesity food, as an excellent Anti oxidant and Nutritional supplement for a few trace elements like Manganese, Selenium, Vitamin B 6, Vitamin B1, Vitamin C etc. This has certainly increased the interest of the common people to know more about these wonderful health benefits of Garlic and the best way to consume it.

Interestingly enough, Ayurveda, which is regarded as the first ever documented Medical Literature of mankind, has described the unique health-boosting (and medicinal properties) of Garlic thousands of years ago. And to our surprise, we find that the same old genius Rhushis and Saints (who have written literature of Ayurved), had described the wonderful qualities of Garlic to which the modern scientists are confirming today by various experiments and clinical trials etc. Let me explain this. In Ayurved, the medicinal properties of Garlic (which is known as “Rasona”) are described in detail. Ayurvedic literature is written in Sanskrit language and the medicinal properties are described on the basis of Ayuredic philosophy.

The following table is an illustration of comparison of the ancient description of uses of Garlic and the modern claims through research.

Ayurvedic properties of Garlic Modern claims of Garlic benefits
1 Deepan Pachan Best Digestive aid
2 Vrishya As an aphrodisiac and to enhance Libido
3 Hrudya As cardio-protective, as anti-atherosclerotic, to reduce hypertension (owing to its contents like alliin, Allicin, which act as vasodilator, reducing the levels of homocysteine,  antioxidant reducing the oxidative stress and as anti-platelet agglutination agent which helps to increase blood circulation to heart and reduce formation of clots)
4 Balya and Rasayan To increase the utilization of stored Iron, as a health tonic
5 Krimighna As Anti-bacterial, Anti-viral and Anti-fungal
6 Shwasahara In bronchitis, Cough, Cold, Flu etc
7 Asthi sandhankar To enhance healing of fractured bones
8 Kushthaghna In skin diseases owing to its sulfur rich constituents.
9 Amavatahar A highly effective remedy for Rheumatism (Anti inflammatory properties of Garlic)
10 Kanthya Beneficial for soreness of throat , viral flu

We can see that, the medicinal and health boosting properties of Garlic as confirmed by various research and experiments, match exactly with those mentioned in Ayurved, documented thousands of years ago. Aren’t you curious to know the complete information about Garlic as given in Ayurved?

The Philosophy of Ayurveda in relationship to Garlic

The basic philosophy of Ayurveda, depicts that every substance (including medicinal plants) in this universe is made up of five basic elements, known as Panchamahabhutas. They are Prithvi (earth); Aap (Water), Teja (Fire), Vayu (Air) and Akash (Space or ether). Each substance has different combination of the above five elements which determines its properties. Although there are hundreds of thousands of living and non-living things on our planet (including herbs), yet their basic building structure is made of these five basic elements. And the composition of the five elements determines their properties.

Ayurveda has enlisted various properties of herbs on different parameters. These parameters help us to understand the usefulness of a particular herb. According to Ayurveda, each herb has Rasa, Veerya, Vipaka, Prabhava and Guna. Rasa is the taste of the herb; Veerya is its potency (or nature?). Vipaka is the taste of the herb after its cellular digestion and prabhava is the unique pharmaco-dynamic property of that herb. Guna means special properties of the medicinal herb.

Accordingly, Garlic has five rasas (tastes) namely Pungent, Bitter, Salty, Astringent and Sweet. It lacks only one taste which is sour. The Vipaka of Garlic is pungent and its Veerya is Hot. Different parts of Garlic have different tastes as Roots- Katu (Pungent); Leaves- Tikta (Bitter); Stem-Kashaya (Astringent); Tip of stem – Lavana (Salty); Seeds- Madhura (Sweet).

Also Garlic has following properties. Guna (Characteristics): Snigdha (Unctuous); Teekshna (Sharp); Pichchhila (Slimy); Guru (Heavy); Sara (Mobile). Knowing these properties, we can logically correlate its medicinal uses and effects on various doshas (body humors). Garlic pacifies vitiated Vata and Kapha and vitiates Pitta. Garlic is therefore useful in diseases where Vata and kapha humor is aggravated. Garlic vitiates Pitta dosha and also can vitiate Rakta (blood). Consumption of Garlic helps to increase pitta (digestive fire). Also its other properties (like sara and snigdha) renders it as an carminative and mild laxative. Due to hot potency and pungent taste, Garlic can vitiate Pitta dosha which can cause heart-burn and hyperacidity.  Also, vitiated pitta dosha can affect Rakta dhatu, which causes bleeding and increases clotting time and bleeding time. This unique property of Garlic is also confirmed by modern science. Numerous experiments have proved Garlic to act as an anti-platelet agglutination agent. This property of garlic has earned reputation of being useful for cardiovascular health.

Garlic, when consumed in moderate / optimum quantity can serve as a complete remedy for Atherosclerotic Heart disease and hypertension. Also, Garlic is used as a potent Anti bacterial, anti-fungal and anti viral agent. Garlic oil is used topically for a few fungal infections like Athlete’s foot etc. Garlic oil is also used to sooth ear ache. Garlic is also hailed as a potent anti-cancer agent especially for colorectal and renal cancer. Garlic, is an obvious potent digestive and carminative, used since ages. Newer evidence also suggests Garlic to be a novel agent to control Obesity! The study suggests that Garlic, by releasing a compound (1,2,-vinyldithiin, or 1,2-DT) stops the progression of Fat cells from a preliminary stage called “preadipocytes” to a final stage called “adipocytes.” One of the sulfur compounds in garlic (1,2,-vinyldithiin, or 1,2-DT) appears  to lessen this conversion of preadipocytes into adipocytes.

Ways of Consuming Garlic

After knowing the various benefits of Garlic, we may jump on to the conclusion that Garlic, being a wonder herb, can be consumed by everyone and also can be consumed in large quantity so as to reap its many health benefits. Wouldn’t we want to consume something daily that can prevent cardiovascular disease, hypertension, cancer, infections, and inflammations besides providing us vital trace nutrients, anti-oxidants etc? You aren’t wrong!

Wait! The modern research has raised a few concerns regarding consumption of Garlic. Garlic may be allergic to a few people who are also allergic to vegetables of allium species. Garlic causes Bad breath and Halitosis. Garlic consumption can also result in excessive sweating with offensive odor. Garlic can interfere with a metabolism of few of medicines likeIsoniazid (INH, Nydrazid), Medications used for HIV/AIDS, Birth control pills, Cyclosporine,  heart medications called calcium channel blockers (diltiazem, nicardipine, verapamil), cancer drugs (etoposide, paclitaxel, vinblastine, vincristine, vindesine), fungus-fighting drugs (ketoconazole, itraconazole), glucocorticoids, medications that slow blood clotting (Anticoagulant / Antiplatelet drugs). Garlic should not be consumed in large quantity by pregnant and lactating women and also by young children.

Well, well, well… looks like a long scary list and may raise thousands of doubts in your mind. The possibility of such interference or restriction to consuming Garlic should be consulted with your treating physician before arriving to any conclusion.

In Ayurveda, it is clearly mentioned to whom Garlic will benefit and to whom it will not. Also, Ayurveda gives you various ways to consume Garlic so as to avoid a few unwanted effects. Ayurveda has clearly mentioned various dosages and combinations of medicines for different age groups and disease conditions.  According to Ayurveda, the dosage of herbal medicine depends upon age, sex, disease condition (chronic Vs Acute, mild Vs Moderate etc), the timing of the medication, it’s association with food, the body constitution (or prakriti) of the person, the seasonal variation in atmosphere etc.

Accordingly Garlic should be mixed with Honey if the disease is caused by Kapha. It should be taken with Ghee (clarified butter) if disease is caused by Vata and along with sugar if the disease is caused by pitta.  Also Garlic consumption must be reduced in hot summer season and people with Pitta disorders. People with bleeding disorder and GERD should avoid consumption of Garlic or should take Garlic in lowest possible quantity. According to Ayurved, Garlic should be triturated or suspended in buttermilk and purified before being used as a single medicine or with other herbs. Garlic when used as a flavoring agent or as food can be consumed in low quantity of around 4 gm/ serving (one to two cloves). If it is used as a medicine then its quantity would change accordingly.

To reap the most medicinal and nutritional values of Garlic, it should be crushed or chopped and kept for 5 to 10 minutes. By this time the alliin will be converted into allicin which is the most active component. If Garlic is cooked at high temperature its majority of medicinal properties are destroyed. So Garlic should be added just 5 to 10 minutes before the cooking process is finished. Also Garlic must be consumed fresh to extract most of its medicinal properties. Unfortunately, processed Garlic or its extracts may lose most of its active component Alliicin and hence its health benefit would be far below than expected. Also the storage of Garlic plays an important role in preserving its potency.

Before we conclude, we can definitely confirm following truth regarding Garlic consumption;

1)  Garlic is best when it is used fresh, one or two Garlic cloves when chopped or crushed and consumed after 5 to 10 minutes give us maximum benefits.

2)  Garlic should be avoided by people who have Pitta constitution and suffer from Hyperacidity or heartburn, peptic ulcer, bleeding disorders etc.

3)  Garlic may to allergic to a very few people, so they need to avoid Garlic consumption.

4)  Garlic is best avoided by pregnant and lactating women and small children. But it can be safely consumed in culinary quantities (one clove or 4 gms) by pregnant women, around 3 times a week.

5)  Garlic is a very good remedy for Vata and Kapha disorders. As a culinary use Garlic can be added to a hot soup to fight common cold, Flu, cough and chest congestion. Garlic should be purified according to the Ayurvedic principles, before it can be used as medicine.

6)  To most people, Garlic is safe if consumed in optimum quantity. Excess consumption of garlic is not encouraged unless confirmed by the Healthcare provider.  Garlic supplements or its extracts must be used as prescribed by the treating doctor.

Hope this information clarifies the doubts about the use of this wonderful herb. Detailed scientific research on medicinal properties of Garlic as described in Ayurveda would highlight the hidden benefits of Garlic and would equally justify its use over thousands of years by many generations.

Guggulu: The Magical Herb of the Millennium


Guggulu: The Magical Herb of the Millennium

Guggulu or Commiphora mukul, has grabbed the attention of Medical Scientists and researchers all over the world. Guggulu has been used extensively in Ayurveda for thousands of years.

Guggulu the magical herb berries and resin

Guggulu berries and resin

Guggulu, in Sanskrit means “One that protects us from Disease”. The Guggulu tree is about 1.5 to 2 meters tall and grows in the wild dry lands of Gujrat, Rajasthan, Mysore, Bengal in India along with some parts of Arabia and Africa. The Gum that oozes from the bark of the tree (especially in summer which dries up in winter) is the part used in Medicine.

In Ayurveda, five different types (or species) of Guggulu are described. The Gum which is bright Golden yellow in color is considered the Best Guggulu to be used as medicine. The Guggulu gum is soft; soluble in water and burns in fire giving a sweet fragrance. The freshly collected Guggulu gum has different medicinal properties than the one which is older.

Guggulu can be used as a single drug or with combination of other herbs. The Guggulu gum has active ingredients like resins (like Z-guggulusterone etc.); gugulipid etc. Research on these active ingredients has shown promising results in treating many diseases like Hyperlipidemia, Osteoarthritis, Rheumatoid arthritis, etc.

Ayurveda has described properties of Guggulu. The Guggulu gum is bitter, pungent, sweet, and astringent in taste, hot in potency, light and unctuous. Guggulu is Tridoshahara, which means it acts on all the three (Vata, Pitta, Kapha) doshas. Guggulu is used as an external application as well as internal medication.

Owing to its unctuous and anti-microbial properties, gum Guggulu is used for cleaning of wounds, on skin ulcers, on cervical lymphadenitis, on Abscess, hemorrhoids etc. It reduces the foul smell (pus) and swelling. It can be used as an external application in rheumatoid arthritis and fractured bones. Gum Guggulu has the magnificent property of uniting the broken bones and it is used both externally and internally in fractures. It reduces the swelling and the pain and hastens the reunion of fractured bones. The vapors from the burnt Guggulu gum are used as disinfectant and deodorant. Guggulu can be used for gargling in pyorrhea and dental disorders.

Arthritis: Guggulu is used extensively in many types of Arthitis (Osteo-arthritis, Rheumatoid arthritis, Gouty arthritis, Psoriatic arthritis, skeletal deformities, Spondylosis, Prolapse of Inter-vertebral disc etc). Guggulu acts as a potent anti-inflammatory agent and reduces the swelling and pain in arthritis. It also has Anti-oxidant and chondro-protective property. It slows down the process of cartilage damage and hence improves the quality of life in arthritis patients. Due to its unctuous property, guggulu is an ideal binding agent to prepare tablets and pills. It is extensively used with other herbs and ingredients to prepare hundreds of formulations. Guggulu also increases the effectiveness of the other herbs and increases their bio-availability rendering the combination more potent and effective.

Osteoporosis: Gum Guggulu is one of the Best medicines for Osteopenia, Osteoporosis and fractures. It is used externally as well as internally to treat these ailments. It promotes the bone growth and bone mineralization and substantially reduces the fracture healing time.

Hyperlipidemia (High cholesterol) : Guggulu is mainly famous for its lipid-lowering properties. The resin (Z-guggulusterone) acts on the liver cells and increases the metabolism of fat and bile acids. It reduces the LDL (bad cholesterol) and increases the HDL (good cholesterol). It is also very effective in reducing the atherosclerosis and blockages of coronary arteries. In Ayurveda, Guggulu is described as “Medopachak” meaning “one that digests lipid (fat)”. Modern science has endorsed this therapeutic effect through scientific research.

Thyroid disorders: Gum Guggulu, is also a potent medicine for Hypothyroidism. Research has proved that Guggulu protects the thyroid hormone secreting cells from the oxidative damage and autoimmunity. It improves the function of Thyroid glands and is a potent medicine for Hypothyroidism.

Obesity: As an excellent lipid lowering agent, Guggulu is also an important medicine for Obesity. It increases the catabolism of lipids and thus increases their excretion from the body. Guggulu is also very useful in Obesity due to diabetes mellitus, hypothyroidism etc.

Circulatory system: Guggulu as being a lipid lowering agent is very effective in improving the blood supply of the concerned organs. Gum Guggulu is also an effective anti-platelet agent and useful in dissolving the blood clots. It also helps to improve the blood supply of heart by reducing the atherosclerosis of coronary arteries.

Kidney stones: Guggulu is also very effective in urolithiasis (Kidney stones). When mixed with the other herbs like Gokhura (Tribullus terestris), Punarnava (Boerhavia diffusa) Guggulu is effective in dissolving and breaking down the kidney stones and facilitates their expulsion.

Skin diseases: Guggulu, being a very effective anti-microbial agent is very effective in many skin diseases. Along with the other herbs, it is effective in treatment of Eczema, Acne, Abscess, Varicose ulcers, Peri-anal abscesses.

Gynecological disorders: Guggulu is effective in many gynecological disorders like Dysmenorrhea, Leucorrhea, and Infertility etc. Fresh Guggulu can also be used as Aphrodisiac and to increase sperm count.

Rejuvenation: – Fresh Guggulu, is also a potent Rasayana (Rejuvenating) medicine. It acts on all the tissues and improves their metabolism. It can be used in the emaciation, Loss of body weight, chronic illnesses like Tuberculosis, HIV, and Diabetes etc.

To conclude, Guggulu, as stated in Ayurveda is literally the “Protector” as can cure many diseases. Being herbal in origin, Guggulu is very safe for consumption within therapeutic doses. Guggulu needs to be purified (as described in Ayurveda) by a specific process if it is to be used as a medicine.

Modern science has endorsed the therapeutic claims of Gum Guggulu as stated in Ayurveda. More scientific research on Guggulu will reveal its mode of action and it is no wonder that in the coming years Guggulu will be one of the wonder drugs on the planet.

We must thank Mother Nature, for gifting us Guggulu, as an effective remedy on many human diseases. Certainly, Guggulu deserves to be called as the “Magical Herb of the Millennium”

Natural ways to treat Vitiligo

post on 10:52 am
Posted in Vitiligo

Vitiligo is a skin condition in which white patches appear on different parts of the body. This occurs because the Melanocyte cells that are responsible for skin coloration are destroyed. White patches may start appearing sporadically and increase in size as Melanocyte destruction spreads. Patches usually appear on hands and feet. These physical manifestations of Vitiligo may also lead some patients to suffer from mood disorders as well as depression, which may heavily affect their personality.

Conventional treatments for Vitiligo include:

• Corticosteroid cream for local application.
• Vitamin D derivative – calcipotriene (Dovonex)
• Topical Psoralen plus ultraviolet A (PUVA) therapy
• Surgical treatment: skin grafts from the normal skin to the affected one.

These allopathic vitiligo treatments only address Vitiligo on a superficial level and do precious little to correct the imbalances which are at the root cause of it. None of these conventional treatments cure vitiligo.

Advanced Natural therapies like Resonance homeopathy, ayurvedic herbs and Modern Bio-energetics are traditionally believed to enhance the body’s melanocyte production cycle and support the restoration of normal skin color. Clinical research on various ayurvedic herbs including Bakuchi( Psoralea corylifolia )
Kalmegh (Andrographis paniculata) ,Bhringaraj (Eclipta alba) ,Guduchi (Tinospora cordifolia),
Kakmachi (Solanum nigrum) , Katuki (Picorrhiza kurroa), Nimba (Melia azadirachta),
Punarnava (Boerhaavia diffusa), Rohitak (Amoora rohituka), Sharapunkha (Tephrosia purpurea),
Madayantika paan (Lawsonia alba) has evaluated the efficacy of these herbs in vitiligo.

With summer round the bend, the desire to get fit and get lean is higher, as everyone is getting ready to fit into that beach body with flatter abs and lean legs. Exercise and a balanced diet go a long way, but for some, it still stops short. That’s where Dietary Supplements, Fat Burners, etc. step into the game to give you that extra edge, to help you meet your fitness goals.

The summer winds also bring us our Tropical Fruits, such as Lychees, Jackfruit, Mangoseteen and of course, Mangoes!! However, did you know that Mangoes, besides being deliciously juicy also contain plenty of anti-oxidants and vitamins, which not only help boost metabolism, but also help reverse the ageing process.

Weight Loss

African Mangoes (Irvinga gabogensis) are exceptionally high in anti-oxidants and have recently gained popularity in weight loss diets and supplements. This rare fruit originates from Cameroon in Africa and has been used as an appetite suppressant for nearly hundreds of years. They fruit is locally known as “Dikka Nuts”. Aside from its weight loss properties, this fruit also has many other medicinal benefits.

African mango seed extract helps by increasing the body’s metabolism. Toxins present in our body decreases the body’s capacity to metabolize fat causing an accumulation of fat which results in increased body weight.

This extract also helps lower cholesterol and has been touted as quite a potent multi vitamin. Studies have shown significant reduction in body weight, body fat and LDL cholesterol which is responsible for blockages in blood vessels. It also helps regulate blood glucose.

Nature truly is man’s best friend in our road to good health. This fruit has only now been ‘discovered’ for its weight loss properties, but have been cultivated and used for both its taste and its beneficial properties for centuries.

Posted in GERD

Do you experience heartburn twice a week or more? If yes, then you most probably are suffering from GERD or Acid reflux.

It is a common condition which affects 10% of Americans.

GERD occurs when acid from the stomach seeps into the esophagus causing pain and damage to the tissue. There is no single cause to it but is common in smokers and people who are obese.

Heartburn is the most common symptom. It can also lead to a sour taste in the mouth and chest pain while lying down. Constant irritation of the esophageal lining can also cause a sore throat and cough.

Many a people suffering from GERD do not seek treatment as they think their symptoms are normal. However, we need to understand that it is a chronic condition and can have life long repercussions.

The goal for managing GERD is to keep stomach contents within the confines of the stomach. This can be done by changing eating habits and lifestyle changes.

Avoid large meals, have smaller and frequent meals instead.

Do not wear elastic waists, tight jeans, belts etc. These squeeze the stomach and increase the gastric pressure causing acid reflux.

Avoid lying down until the stomach is empty, which is usually 2-3 hours.

Natural products help in strengthening the esophageal sphincter muscles.

These herbal remedies soothe the spasms and reduce regurgitation of stomach contents into the esophagus.

We all need to adopt a holistic approach in tackling GERD and that day would not be far when heartburn will be history for all of us.

Let us all share our experiences and help each other in conquering GERD.
