Some people are prone to body heat. There is no fever, but the body heats up. For such people, my Mom’s holistic treatment is as follows:
- Soak ½ teaspoon chia seeds (sabj ka dana) in water overnight. Have these seeds with a glass of room temperature water in the morning. These seeds are effective in all kinds of piles, including bleeding piles.
- Apply henna on palms and feet. Already powdered henna or cone, available in the market, can be applied. However, home ground henna leaves are more effective.
- Coconut oil can be heated on slow fire and mix fresh Aloe vera pulp. Fry well in slow fire and switch off the stove. When the mixture comes to room temperature, it can be massaged on the scalp for 10 minutes. Leave it for 10 minutes more and wash off.
- Mix castor oil and Aloe vera pulp and turmeric powder on a kadhai. Heat well and switch off the stove. Mix ½ teaspoon of neem oil in it. Massage the resultant oil all over the body and bathe.
- If eyes have a burning sensation, splash cold water on them. Pour a few drops of rose water inside the eyes.
- Washing eyes with Triphala water, keeps eyesight sharp and it will have a cooling effect on them.
- Triphala powder or tablet can be had after food. This keeps the digestive fire cooled, since bowels are cleaned due to it. As mentioned before, it is good for the eyes and it is also good for overall health.
- Soak fenugreek seeds in water overnight. Next day, grind a fistful of coriander leaves and the soaked fenugreek seeds together. Prepare thin butter milk. Mix the ground paste and salt to taste with the butter milk. Add 1 pinch of asafoetida to the mixture and drink.
- Drinking tender coconut water is also cooling.
Contra-Indication: People having sinusitis, asthma, wheezing, lung issues, Sarcoidosis and frequent cold and cough should avoid this treatment.
