Kidney stones or Nephrolithiasis means the formation of a hard, crystal mineral substance in the kidneys or the urinary tract. It is estimated that one in every 20 individual will suffer from kidney stones at some point in their life. Inadequate hydration is one of the major reasons for aggravating signs and symptoms of kidney stones.

Common Signs and Symptoms of kidney stones:

  • Radiating pain below abdomen and around the groin areas

  • Immense pain while passing urine

  • Red or brown coloured urine (Blood in urine)

  • Decrease in amount of urine passage and foul smelling urine

  • Nausea or vomiting

  • Fever and lower body pain

  • Feel the need to urinate again and again

  • Different types of Kidney Stones are formed depending on the biochemical composition and the chemical imbalance within the urine. Commonly there are 5 different types of kidney stones namely- Cystine, calcium, uric acid, and struvite.

The yogic way of living helps prevent kidney stones and if suffering from the condition helps to relieve the symptoms of kidney stones.

Yogic Lifestyle Choices & Dietary Discipline TIPS

  • Healthy routines of early to bed and eating on correct time helps. (Avoid late night parties and junk food.)

  • Eat your food slowly and chew your food properly.

  • A brisk walk in nature early morning and evening for 20 to 30 minutes is a must. Early morning sunlight is good. Soak some sunlight onto your back as well.

  • Avoid eating animal-based proteins. Opt for Satvik diet and organic foods. Eat a balanced diet. Fruits and vegetables help to decrease the urine acidity and this reduces the chances of kidney stone formation.

  • Hydrate your system well. Consume 12 glasses of liquid every day. Have water half hour before meals and after 1 hour of meal. Example- Early morning drink herbal tea, Lunch -butter milk and dinner cup of soup.

  • Get into a healthy routine of regular yoga exercise.

  • If you have a calcium-containing kidney stone, eat less salt and salty food and try not to get more than the recommended daily amount of calcium.

  • Individuals with oxalate kidney stones should limit intake of foods that are rich in oxalate So avoid chocolate, dark green veggies (i.e. spinach, Swiss chard, greens), Mixed nuts and peanuts, Tahini and sesame seeds. Exercise moderation (5 peanuts per day is enough)

  • Lemon juice is helpful mainly because it contains citrate. It can bind with calcium in the urine and help in reducing the amount of calcium available to form calcium-oxalate kidney stones.

There has been recent significant evidence that cranberry juice actually helps in the fight against tooth decay. A compound in the fruit blocks bacteria from sticking to the teeth, which inhibits the growth and build up of plaque.

Castor Oil

Castor oil is one of the best natural home remedy that is available at many medicine shop or grocery shops. Castor oil has anti inflammatory and antibacterial properties and can be used in various other problems too. For using castor oil in fracture, dip a clean cotton cloth in castor oil and wrap it around that particular bone, cover the cloth with duct tape and leave for one or two nights. It will strengthen your bones and help to remove fracture.

Kalonji Or Black Caraway Seed

Kalonji can do wonders in fractures. Its high medicinal properties and contents make it very useful in almost all of minor health problems including fracture of bones. Kalonji contains zinc, iron, phosphorus and many compounds along with antibiotic qualities. For using kalonji for fracture, take kalonji or black caraway seeds oil and massage that particular area of bones two times a day for 10-12 days. You will feel better after using it.


Turmeric is another wonderful gift of nature to the mankind that can be extensively useful in various problems like skin infections, in injuries, various mouth related problem and in fracture too. It has various wonderful medicinal qualities like anti oxidant, antiseptic and anti inflammatory. For using turmeric in fractures, drink turmeric with milk at least twice a day to recover quickly. Another old method is make paste of turmeric and onion, make a poultice of this paste and put it on the affected part. You can also tie it with some plastic wraps for 1-2 days.

Tying With Wooden Piece

This is one of the methods that I myself have experienced. This looks simple but it is very effective, the only limitation is you can’t use it on every bones, it can only be applied on leg or hand. For using take a small wooden piece and tie it with cotton cloth or plastic on the affected bone area for 10- 12 hours.

Ice Pack

This method is also worth a try for bone fractures. It is very simple to use and can be very effective. For using put some eyes on a cotton cloth and apply slowly around the affected part for 5-10 mints, repeat this 4-5 times a day to see its effect

Everything You Need To Know About Healing From A C-Section!

After those nine months, the long waiting period gets over and the most exciting transition from a mommy-to-be, to a mommy finally begins. But then, things are not always as smooth as we expect, especially if you undergo a C-section to deliver your baby. It is indeed an overwhelming experience to hold your little one in your arms but you need to understand that a C-section surgery is a major abdominal surgery and you need to take precautions to recover from the surgery. The recovery period for the C-section delivery is much higher than the recovery period for the normal delivery.

Let us look at some ways for speedy recovery from C-section delivery:

  1. Relax: Taking proper rest will give your body the energy to recover from the surgery that you had undergone. Healing of the scar takes time and your post-partum body requires rest. But, taking proper rest is not as easy as it sounds when you have a new born baby to take care of, who needs a lot of attention and care. From feeding your baby at regular intervals to changing their nappies/diapers and making them sleep, all of it requires you to be on your toes. Make sure you always take some time out to rest and do not hesitate to take help from your spouse and family.
  2. Don’t put strain your body: Your body has just given birth to a baby and has undergone a major surgery; therefore, it is important that you give it time to heal. You should try not to get up too often, do not lift anything heavier than your baby, avoid sex until six weeks from the birth of your baby, hold your abdomen when you have to sneeze or cough to protect the incision site. Don’t start working out without your doctors’ green signal and don’t drive and take stairs, which might put a strain on your body.
  3. Take a good diet: Take plenty of healthy and nutritious food as your body still requires such a diet. Breastfeeding mothers need to understand that the sole source of nutrition for your baby is you. Include different vegetables and variety of healthy food to pass on nutrition to your little one. Take plenty of fluids, especially water as the fluid intake is necessary to increase breast milk supply. Including fibre rich diet will keep you away from issues, such as constipation, which is one of the most common issues that women face after having a baby.
  4. Medicines: Your doctor may prescribe you the medicines that you can take to reduce the pain and recover faster. The medicines prescribed would vary if you are breastfeeding and if you are not breastfeeding your baby, so taking up such issues become even more important for you and your baby.
  5. Take care of the Incision: Take proper care of the incision by keeping the wound clean and undisturbed for a faster recovery.

Don’t compare your recovery to someone else’s because the speed of recovery depends from person to person. Motherhood is an exciting phase of your life, so take care of yourself to have a speedy recovery and enjoy every moment of it.  Make memories and stay happy!

Crystal Sound Bowl Therapy - An Overview!

One of the most powerful tools that one can add to his or her restorative arsenal is the Vibrational Therapy. Stress is practically present in all walks of life in the modern world and each one of us can take a little help when it is about promoting relaxation whenever we are feeling tense.

Crystal Singing Bowl Therapy is one such natural way to bring forth a reduction in the level of stress and thus foster inner peace.

Details about the Bowls
The details include:

  1. The frosted crystal bowls are manufactured from 99.99% pure quartz crystal.
  2. Alchemy bowls are made up with a combination of quartz along with sacred metals, gemstones, and minerals. All possess their unique character as well as tone.

How Does Crystal Sound Bowl Therapy Take Effect?
Let us see, exactly how does this therapy take effect:

  1. One important component of a session involving Crystal Sound Bowl Therapy is to create a sense of affirmation from within, which will not only get activated but also magnified by the sounds of the crystal bowls.
  2. Each and every cell and atom present in an individual has their unique resonance through which it vibrates. As and when a stronger sense of vibration comes close to a weaker one, often it gets drawn into it.
  3. Thus the weaker level of frequency starts to vibrate at the stronger rate of vibration. The tissues that remain connected to the nervous system are made up of a crystalline kind of substance and thus it is an excellent medium which is able to conduct the vibration easily.
  4. It is at this level that the Crystal Sound Ball Therapy has its greatest effect. When, through entrainment, a stronger sense of vibration gets drawn into the weaker one, the net effect that comes up is a profound statement when one is relaxed.
  5. The relaxed state of mind comes in through the transformation brought about by this therapy, as different patterns of vibration get synchronized, hence promoting a true sense of inner balance along with intense relaxation.
  6. This state even helps people to easily meditate or even release negative emotions that contribute to one’s stress.

For How Long Does One Play?

  1. The duration of the session goes on somewhere between 40 and 60 minutes.
  2. Just when the session is about to get over, the therapist conducting this particular therapy would take the client through a particular grounding breath technique and then allow some time for complete silence.

Other Techniques Which Therapists Use Along with the Bowls:

Some other techniques include:

  1. Crystal Sound Therapy can get integrated quite with other energetic forms of healing.
  2. Some other forms are:
  3. Shiatsu
  4. Kinesiology
  5. Acupuncture
  6. Massage Aromatherapy

Healing Spices in our Kitchen

Our immune system does a great job of keeping us healthy and preventing infections. However, we need to support it with the right foods so it works better and in turn helps us in the process.

Garlic – This grandmother’s ally has immense infection fighting ability. Being a natural detoxicant, unlike with antibiotics there are no side effects. It protects our body against bacterial and viral infections. The three powerful compounds (allicin, ajoene and thiosulfinates) contained in it helps the body prevent and fight infections.

Ginger – Spicing up your meals with ginger is a great way for boosting your immune system naturally. It helps to cleanse the lymphatic system and prevent the accumulation of toxins in our body organs. The quickest way to incorporate ginger in your diet is to add finely chopped ginger to boiled water, let it steep for 2-3 minutes. Strain out ginger and sip good health. Sprinkle dried ginger into any salad dressing or add finely chopped pieces to soups.

Rosmarinic acid, which is a strong antioxidant found in oregano supports immune system health. It also has compounds that inhibits inflammation. Studies have shown it to be beneficial for conditions including osteoporosis and arteriosclerosis. You can garnish your omelettes with oregano. Oregano also goes great with sautéed mushrooms and onions too.

Depression - Healing the Blues

Depression - Healing the Blues

We all go through the ups and downs of our everyday lives. There are times when we feel we can achieve a lot, do wonders, make the most of our potential, and then there are days when we consider ourselves complete failures, feel down in the dumps, and nothing seems to be going our way. Such is life, and this variety and unpredictability is its beauty. Having a low mood, feeling sad or even “depressed” is actually different from clinical depression

According  to  the  ICD-10  Classification  of  Mental  and  Behavioural  Disorders,  clinical  depression  is marked  by  the following three cardinal symptoms lasting for a period of at least 2 weeks:-

  1.  Depressed mood
  2.   Loss of interest and enjoyment
  3.  Reduced energy leading to easy fatigability and diminished activity. 

In addition to this, other common symptoms could be  –  reduced concentration and attention, reduced confidence and self-esteem, ideas of guilt and unworthiness, bleak and pessimistic views of the future, disturbed sleep and appetite, and ideas of self-harm or suicide. 

Just like any other psychological illness, depression also could be due to a combination of bio-psycho-social factors. It is  a  very  common  illness  and  affects  1  in  every  3  persons  in  India  once  in  their  lifetime. Although  it  can  have  a recurring course, it is definitely treatable with anti -depressant medication, psychotherapy,  certain lifestyle changes  and Homoeopathy also . 

There are some things that you can do too to manage your mood.


  • Maintain a routine. A structured day keeps the uncertainties and stress to the minimal. Moreover, it makes sure efficient use of your time. 
  • Go for a walk or exercise. Physical activity releases endorphins, often called “happy hormones” which work as natural anti-depressants. 
  • Engage more often in your favourite activities, hobbies or things that give you happiness even if it seems futile. The general rule of thumb that works in depression is-  THE MORE YOU DO, THE MORE YOU FEEL LIKE DOING. So, don't wait for your mood to get better before you do things that you enjoy. 
  • Share your feelings and thoughts with people you are comfortable with. They might not be able to suggest a solution to your problem but you would feel much better. 
  • Feel free to consult a mental health professional like a Clinical Psychologist who understands the condition well and has acquired professional training in dealing with such problems. Psychotherapy is very effective in treating depression and can help you deal better with the situation.

Wounds On The Feet, Not Healing? Know Why Is It The Case!

Wounds On The Feet, Not Healing? Know Why Is It The Case!

An injury runs its course of a few days to weeks depending on the size and heals and closes. There could be scarring or mobility issues in some though. However, this does not happen in all cases, and a wound that has not healed for more than 6 weeks is termed as chronic. They are most common in the hands and feet. In those who have mobility issues, hips, buttocks, and thighs are also common areas.

Read on to know more about why this happens and how they can be treated.

Reasons: Though there could health conditions aggravating the healing, most wounds heal late due to 3 reasons:

  1. Poor circulation: A healing wound requires nutrition for the cells to repair, and if there is improper circulation, then healing is definitely delayed. This can happen due to diabetes, malnutrition, reduced mobility, vascular disease, etc. In many unsuspecting people, nonhealing wounds have led to diabetes being diagnosed. Diabetes also affects nerve supply, so delayed healing may go unnoticed too. Post injury, it is also important to completely stop movement, as circulation needs to be maintained for proper, quick healing.
  2. Infection: By preventing tissue regeneration and interfering with blood clotting, they can prolong bleeding and cause chronic inflammation. This leads to delayed healing and in most cases, worsening of the current situation.
  3. Fluid accumulation/edema: Any injury causes leakage of cellular fluid into the surrounding tissues. This causes edema and the surrounding tissue is often swollen. This leads to poor circulation also, which is another cause for delayed healing. Edema also reduces tissue repair difficult, not allowing skin to form over the wound.

Symptoms: While the wound per se is an indication, there are also other symptoms which indicate a non-healing wound.

  1. Pain, which has not subsided
  2. Swelling, discharge, odor, and skin color changes due to the ongoing infection. A thin discharge is not worrisome, but a thicker or foul-smelling discharge is definitely a cause for concern
  3. Open wound: Most wounds heal within the 30-day period. If the wound is open beyond that, it is always advisable to seek medical support.

Management: This would include generic and local treatment.

Generic treatment would include a nutritious diet, good sleep and rest, adequate exercise and rehab program to ensure adequate mobility, and frequent monitoring. In addition, conditions like diabetes have to be monitored and brought under control.

Local treatment options would be:

  1. Wound debridement and skin or tissue grafting
  2. Medications to improve wound healing
  3. Hyperbaric oxygen to provide more oxygen to the wound in particular
  4. Vascular repair to improve circulation.

Delayed healing of wounds should not be ignored; timely medical help can avoid complications.

What Is Abhyanga and How It Can Help In Healing?

While medicine is making advances at a rapid pace, it makes some good sense to pay attention to ancient medicine, especially when it can not only relax a person who is stressed, but also has the potential to heal.

The form of medicine which is being spoken about here is Ayurveda, which has its origins in India and has been practiced for about 5,000 years. According to Ayurveda, over time, stress and toxins accumulate in the body and the way to get rid of them is by having a daily massage, which is known as abhyanga.

In this kind of massage, there is no need for a masseur or masseuse. You can massage yourself with oil. The important thing about abhyanga is that it should be comprehensive and must cover the full body. When it comes to the choice of oil, cured sesame oil works wonders, as do herbal massage oils and aroma massage oils. A good aroma oil is usually a blend of coconut and lavender.

Benefits of Abhyanga Healing-
By practising abhyanga, the lustre of the skin is greatly improved. Once you make abhyanga a part of your daily routine, your skin is bound to attain increased radiance over time.

Apart from giving you a fresh skin, abhyanga also helps in reducing your fatigue levels and as a result of the same, you stamina levels seem to be much higher. All this goes a long way in improving the quality of sleep one has, which yields more productivity during the time you spend working. In short, not only does abhyanga possess the potential to improve one’s health, but also indirectly helps an individual manage his work front better.

Many people are of the opinion that only physically tough exercises can result in an improvement of the muscle tone of the body. However, this is not necessarily true as is proved by abhyanga, which is a great relaxing way to go about improving the tone of the muscles. The nervous system is also done a big favour as a side effect of practising abhyanga. It has a very calming effect on the nerves.

Moreover, there is good news for people who have issues with joints and bones – abhyanga helps improve lubrication in the joints. So, with the power of abhyanga, one can delay the knee replacement, or not even need it, at all!

Last but not the least, abhyanga helps in detoxification of the body as the warm oil massage leads to the removal of toxins from the system.
