In today busy life, we fail to practise our forefather’s tradition of proper eating and way of living. If we were to practise their teachings, we will be free from major sickness and diseases and will lead a happy, healthy and long life.
Siddha of yester years and our forefathers have taught us
a) To have oil bath once a week. Men should have their oil bath every Saturday or Wednesday. Women should have their oil bath every Friday or Tuesday. By having oil bath, it will not only remove hair dirt but also helps maintain our beauty, internally and externally and also promotes good health.
b) To consume 1 tablespoon of castor oil every month. Children who drink castor oil at their young age are normally healthy when they enter adulthood. However they are not able to practise this habit on their children due to lack of time and unawareness of the importance of our forefathers way of live.
Parents should teach their children to eat dried ginger, cumin, coriander and fenugreek seeds as these herbs help build immune system and produces good digestion system. When children starts to age, their stomach will start to bloat up and develop tummy. When this happens, internal body organs will start to fail. Therefore if you are suffering from stomach bloatness, you should immediately seek treatment to cure the problem. It is best to take holistic treatment, i.e. ayurvedic, siddha or unani as it will treat both your mind and body at the same time.
