Alternate hydrotherapy is a very effective method to get immediate relief from pain. You have to take two buckets. Fill one bucket with hot water and fill the second bucket with ice-cold water. Now take two small towels for each bucket. Dip both towels in their respective buckets. Then pick up the hot water towel and place it over the area which has pain. Keep it for some time, then remove the hot towel and place the cold towel over it. This completes one set. Repeat this set three times.
Now, keep in mind that if the weather is hot then end the above set with a cold pack. And if the weather is cold end the set with a hot water towel. This may look very simple but trust me this simple method will help you get rid of any type of pain however old it may be. All joint pain, bone fractures, and cervical pain will be gone within minutes. Make sure you don’t do this process just after eating meals. At least keep two hours gap between meals and this procedure.

What happens when your body is low on calcium?
If your body is giving you signs from point 9 to 13 that is. If you are having tooth decay, white patches on the face, low sperm count then it is telling you that your body is having low calcium. Some more signs of low calcium include weird food cravings, such as an urge to eat chalk or rice or sometimes even mud. Then this indicates that your body is has a calcium deficiency. Low sperm count is also one of the signs of low calcium. You might have seen someone eating chalks and frowned on the person. Well, next time tell them to go through this article so that they may know what to do.
First of all, don’t depend on synthetic tablets for calcium. Because it is difficult to absorb calcium from them and hence it poses the risk of stone formation in the body. Instead use Lotus seeds, cow milk products, and peanut butter. You can also use one very old and effective household remedy practiced in India. Take edible calcium carbonate from your local vendors. In India, it is widely known as Chuna. Once you have procured edible chuna, mix it with curd and take it 30 minutes before breakfast. This is a very rich source of calcium and will replenish your body with calcium naturally without any side effects.
What do vitamins D do for the body? | What happens if your vitamin D is low?
After doing all these steps, if your body still shows signs of calcium deficiency. Then it is highly imperative that your body is low on Vitamin D. To absorb calcium your body requires Vitamin D. Without this important vitamin your body can not absorb calcium, whatever you do. If your body has less vitamin d then calcium levels automatically drop.
Everyone knows that the best source to fulfill our need for Vitamin D naturally is the sun. But if you sit outside in the sunlight with full clothing on, it will not help much. To properly absorb Vitamin D fast you have to make sure that you expose your naval for 5 minutes and expose your back for the same time. the best time for taking sunbath is in the morning during sunrise and in the evening during sunset. It is also OK to take sunbathe from sunrise to 12 noon and from 3 pm to sunset. But you should avoid taking sunbathe from noon to 3 pm.
If you have sensitive skin consider drinking a glass of water before taking a sunbath. Drinking a glass of water will prevent headaches, skin rashes, and will prevent skin tanning.
What Causes Mouth Ulcers and How to Treat Them?
One more sign that your body gives is mouth ulcers. According to Ayurveda mouth ulcers are a sign of heat and dryness. So avoid eating dry fruits without soaking them first. Reduce your intake of tea and coffee. Also, increase the quantity of ghee in your diet. At least use two to three spoons of cow ghee in your diet. Ghee has the natural property of lubricating. If you are suffering from ulcers don’t even think about spicy foods, This will aggravate your situation.
Understand this, and instead of spicy foods include cucumbers, bananas, and all other seasonal fruits in your diet. Also, make a habit of drinking warm water in place of cold water. For instant relief from mouth ulcers, scriptures mention Kattha. Kattha is easily available in India at any local pan shop. I will give a link for you to purchase the same. Simply take a small amount of kattha and mix water in it. Use this paste to apply to the ulcers. Keep it in your mouth for 3 to 5 minutes and then rinse your mouth. Repeat this process three times a day to get relief.

The body requires Vitamin C for the body to absorb iron easily. So if your body does not have enough iron even after the above steps it is imperative that you have Vitamin C deficiency.
To absorb iron properly your body requires Vitamin C. One of the best sources of Vitamin C is Indian gooseberry or Amla as called in India. The Vitamin C in one amla is equivalent to almost 20 oranges. It is an excellent source of Vitamin c and is the best source to fulfill your vitamin c requirement. Just add amla to your diet. Amla is not available the whole year, for that reason I will give the link from where you can buy AMALAKI RASAYANA. It contains all the nutrients present in amla in powder form.

What is pitta dosha?
If your body is showing signs from 23 to 31 then that shows that your body is having pitta dosha or pitta imbalance. Pitta imbalance occurs because of excess heat inside your body. This happens when you eat very spicy foods, or if you wake up very late in the morning. This also happens if you sit in front of pcs and laptops for long hours. To balance your pitta levels you have to limit the intake of foods that have the tendency towards heat. At the same time increase the intake of food which has a cooling effect on your body. Practice tandulodaka to get over these issues.
If your body is showing signs from 32 to 37 then that also shows that your body is having pitta dosha or pitta imbalance. But the main reason for this is the excess formation of acid in the gut. There is an excellent solution for these problems. You have to do Kunjal kriya to treat these problems.

Kunjal kriya if practiced correctly and as described here will solve issues (32 to 37). Sit down on the floor like you are squatting. Now take little warm salty water and drink as much you can in one go. Now stand up and press your throat a little. This will make you vomit. If not then put two fingers down your throat and press the back of your tongue. Try to press as far as possible. When you will press the tongue you will feel the urge to vomit. This is called the ‘gag reflex’ in medical terms. Water will come out of your mouth in a quick series of gushes. Continue the process until your stomach is empty.
You will feel very light after you have done the above steps correctly. After doing this lie down for some time. Kunjal kriya should be done early morning without eating anything. Do not eat anything for an hour after doing this kriya. You may feel a bit awkward when doing this, but once you realize how beneficial this process is you won’t leave this. Also, don’t take pills for acidity as they disturb the ph level of your stomach. Do this once a week and it should be sufficient.

Put two drops of cow ghee in each nostril before sleeping. If you don’t have cow ghee you can use almond oil. Repeat this daily for 3 months. This will also relieve you from snoring. Use the same oil or ghee to massage your forehead and temple especially near your ears. Take one spoonful of Brahmarasayana before breakfast. Brahmarasatana is mentioned in Charak Sanhita and it comprises 50 powerful herbs. It is a very powerful brain tonic and has no side effects.

This can happen if you eat excessive sugary items, or eat cold foods at night. The first change you need to make is to change your diet.

Take steam regularly, I will attach a piece of good steam equipment for your daily use. Or, you can simply boil some water in a pan, now cover your face with a towel and take steam slowly.
Keep Amrit Dhara with you. It is an excellent concoction that is made up of 6 herbs. It has a very strong and effective Kapha balancing formula.
