  1. VJKK VJKF My dad has psoriasis and I wanted to know if there are any herbal DIY remedies or if there are any herbal creams that are good for (possibly) getting rid of psoriasis? @superdupersingh and @jkvlondon have a lot of knowledge about issues like this so I was wondering if you could help me.

  2. Supermarket milk/dairy is full of hormones, pesticides (e.g. glyphosate), antibiotics, synthetic 'vitamins' (toxic), flavourings, additives, colours and is completely devoid of nutrients. 1. Pasteurisation causes milk proteins to breakdown and form carcinogenic degradation products including free glutamic acid/monosodium glutamate (msg); an excitotoxin with a wide range of adverse physical and psychiatric effects. This processing renders milk pro-inflammatory and allergenic. Beneficial nutrients, enzymes (lactase for the assimilation of lactose; galactase for the assimilation of galactose; phosphatase for the assimilation of calcium) and bacteria are destroyed. Thus, milk is harder to digest which can lead to over-stress of the pancreas ultimately resulting in diabetes. 2. Homogenisation breaks down the fat globules in milk into smaller particles. This means that the harmful chemicals within processed milk (above) can easily bypass digestion and be delivered intact directly into the bloodstream, where they can exert systemic effects. E.g. high levels of IGF-1 in milk of growth hormone treated cows can pass into the blood promoting cancers. Processed milk may lead to chronic inflammation, changes in the arterial walls and ultimately athelorsclerosis-->heart disease. Solution: Raw milk. Buy it from a local Farm, Market or online. http://rawmilk.simkin.co.uk/index.html People that are ' lactose intolerant' normally tolerate raw milk well since it contains important enzymes, bacteria, improves immunity and is hypo-allergenic. Raw milk is full of vitamins and minerals which your body can use. It's great for making dahi, makhan, desi ghee too. It is more expensive, but you get what you pay for. The semi-skimmed and skimmed milk sold is shops is just a collection of the liquid at the end of industrial butter production which they would otherwise have discarded. They sell it on for profit. It is devoid of butterfat, fat soluble vitamins and is basically low quality buttermilk with additives. Ironically, having all this low-fat and fat-free dairy will actually promote diabetes and obesity! Finally, don't be fooled by organic dairy it is still processed (pasteurised/homo) and so has negative effects on your health. Get the RAW stuff.
  3. Tea contains an array of toxic ingredients which promote disease. It contains chemicals (e.g.tannins, phytates) which inhibit iron absorption, reduce iron bio-availability leading to iron deficiency anaemia. Vegetarians and pregnant mothers should therefore avoid tea for their own health and that of their children. Tea contains fluoride, heavy metals (inc Al, Pb), carcinogens, pesticides, caffeine, nicotine to name a few. As you can see some of these chemicals are highly addictive causing dependence, tolerance and withdrawal symptoms, which is why it can be hard to kick the habit. People suffering from indigestion, acid reflux, bloating should also avoid tea as the caffeine can aggravate these symptoms. To make matters worse, the tea bag material itself contains chemicals which leach out into the brew. For example plastics (e.g. thermoplastic, PVC, polypropylene) which breakdown and release carcinogens into your mug. Paper tea bags are commonly treated with epichlorophydrin which, on contact with water, hydrolyses to 3-MCPD --> a carcinogen implicated in suppressed immunity and infertility. Basically the additives which help to keep the tea bag's integrity and prevent it from disintegrating into the water, are responsible for leaching harmful, carcinogenic compounds into the tea and ultimately into your bodies. Taking this all into account, I think it's too risky on so many levels to even contemplate drinking another cup of tea. Solution: -Drink raw milk instead. -Boil water with herbs e.g. fennel, cardamom, cinnamon, cloves. -For chronic tea users, I would advice you to slowly taper down tea consumption to limit the withdrawal symptoms and not to quit 'cold turkey'.
  4. The wheat we eat today is not the same wheat our grandparents ate. The modern wheat varieties are actually genetic hybrids that contain a much greater number of chromosomes and therefore more proteins that are not present in naturally-occuring ancient varieties of wheat. This is partly why modern wheat is pro-inflammatory, causes allergies, contains more gluten, and is full of anti-nutrients that strip the body of vitamins and minerals. The second reason is that conventional wheat is sprayed with pesticides including the notorious glyphosate before harvesting which means that residues remain and are ingested. Glyphosate is carcinogenic, immunomodulatory, damages gut flora, causes chronic diseases like coeliacs/leaky gut, nutritional deficiencies. The ancient wheat varieties I have seen are organically grown so therefore are not exposed to Glyphosate. Many people with so called 'gluten-intolerance' are able to eat ancient wheat (which contains gluten) without any problems. Much like how people with so called 'lactose intolerance' can drink raw milk (which contains lactose) without any issues. These are false labels as they are misidentifying the culprit. Another problem with modern atta is the fact that in the UK (maybe other countries too) only 'wholemeal' flour is exempt from additives such as synthetic 'vitamins and minerals' (which are actually toxic drugs with different chemical properties and effects compared to what is found in nature). So every type of flour bar wholemeal contains artificial additives by law. The solution: Buy an ancient variety of wholemeal flour i.e. Einkorn, If unavailable then buy Khorasan flour.....they make delicious, easily digestible rotis. You can buy them online (in UK its Dove Farm Organics) or in supermarkets like Waitrose. You can't put a price on your health. Since roti is a staple of our diet, this one change could make a lot of difference to our health. This is what I do and thought i'd share it with you.
  5. HAUMAI

    The word "ਹਉਮੈ" (Haumai) consists of two words: ਹਉ (Hau) + ਮੈ (Mai). "ਹਉ" (Hau) essentially means "I, ਮੈ", etc. And, " ਮੈ" (Mai) means the same, that is, "I, ਮੈ", etc. So, when both terms are combined (i.e., ਹਉਮੈ-Haumai), it simply indicates the sense of "ਮੈ ਮੈ", "I, I" or "I-ness", "mine, mine", "mineness", "I, me, mine", ਆਪਾ-ਭਾਵ, etc
