Natural Tinnitus Cure

 It is important to understand that though Tinnitus feels like the disease, it is merely a symptom.

Tinnitus is a symptom that something is dysfunctional in the auditory system. This system includes the ear, the auditory nerve that connects the inner ear to the brain, and the parts of the brain that process sound. Note that this problem may also cause other symptoms such as vertigo.

Tinnitus is often regarded as the first sign of hearing loss in elder people. It can also be a result of the side effects of past medications. Usually, prolonged exposure to loud sound causes tinnitus. This includes people working on construction sites, in traffic, in the army etc.

Tinnitus is not a serious health problem as a standalone. However, tinnitus over a period of time can cause other psychological problems such as anxiety, depression, fatigue, loss of focus and even some memory problems.

According to Ayurveda, the underlying cause of tinnitus is inner ear cell damage.

ASHWAGANDHA holds an efficient anti-Covid-19 property

 Ashwagandha (Withania Somnifera), commonly known as Indian winter cherry, is used in Ayurveda as a Rasayana—any preparation that improves general health by stimulating the body’s immunity. The literal meaning of Ashwagandha is “smell of horse”: The fresh roots of the herb emit the smell of a horse; also, there is a common belief that consuming extracts of the herb may help humans develop strength and vitality similar to that of a horse. The herb contains a range of constituents like withanolides and sitoindosides that protect the cells from oxidative damage and disease.

Ashwagandha has been appreciated in many cultures. There is a legend in Greek mythology in which Apollo finds this herb and gifts it to his son Asclepius—the god of medicine. There are also accounts suggesting that Alexander the Great and his army used to drink wine containing Ashwagandha to boost their energy.

The research by the IIT-D and AIST found that “natural compounds from Ashwagandha and propolis [bee glue used by bees to assemble the hive] have the potential to be effective anti-Covid-19 drug candidates”.

As part of the research, the team targeted the main protease (Mpro) of the SARS-CoV-2 virus. Mpro is a key enzyme of the Covid-19 virus, which plays a major role in mediating viral replication. They observed that Withanone, a natural compound derived from Ashwagandha have the potential to inhibit the activity of Mpro, thereby blocking replication of the virus. The study has been published in the Journal of Biomolecular Structure and Dynamics.

While publishing the findings, the researchers mentioned that the drug development for Covid-19 may take a while, and in the current scenario, easily available and affordable natural resources like Ashwagandha “may offer some preventive or even therapeutic value”.

Electric shocks to the tongue can quiet Tinnitus (chronic ringing in ears)

 Tinnitus—a constant ringing or buzzing in the ears that affect about 15% of people—is difficult to understand and even harder to treat. Now, scientists have shown shocking the tongue—combined with a carefully designed sound program—can reduce symptoms of the disorder, not just while patients are being treated, but up to 1 year later.

Hubert Lim, a biomedical engineer at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities, hit on the role of the tongue in tinnitus by accident. A few years ago, he experimented with using a technique called deep brain stimulation to restore his patients’ hearing. When he inserted a pencil-sized rod covered in electrodes directly into the brains of five patients, some of those electrodes landed slightly outside the target zone—a common problem with deep brain stimulation, Lim says. Later, when he started up the device to map out its effects on the brain, a patient who had been bothered by ringing ears for many years, said, “Oh, my tinnitus! I can’t hear my tinnitus,” Lim recalls.

With certain kinds of tinnitus, people hear real sounds. For instance, there might be repeated muscular contractions in the ear, Lim says. But for many people, it’s the brain that’s to blame, perceiving sounds that aren’t there. One potential explanation for the effect is that hearing loss causes the brain to overcompensate for the frequencies it can no longer hear.

Further testing in guinea pigs revealed the best body parts to stimulate to shut off tinnitus, Lim says. He and colleagues tested the ears, neck, limbs, and “you know … other places,” he says, eventually concluding the tongue was the best target.

Then Lim turned to humans. In the team’s experiment, 326 people with tinnitus sat for up to 1 hour at a time with a small plastic paddle on their tongue. Tiny electrodes in the paddle delivered an electrical current designed to broadly excite the brain, getting activity going through a number of interconnected regions. The electrical stimulation feels a little like pop rocks candy fizzing in your mouth, Lim says.

Subjects also wore headphones that delivered a more targeted hit to the brain’s auditory system. Each person heard a rapidly changing series of pure tones at different frequencies, against a background noise that sounds “kind of like electronic music,” Lim says. The goal of the two together was to distract the brain by heightening its sensitivity, forcing it to suppress the activity that causes tinnitus. “The brain can only pay attention to so many things,” Lim says.

Over the 12 weeks of treatment, the patients’ tinnitus symptoms improved dramatically. More than 80% of those who complied with the prescribed regimen saw an improvement. And they saw an average drop of about 14 points on a tinnitus severity score of one to 100, the researchers report today in Science Translational Medicine. When the team followed up after 12 months, 80% of the participants still had lower tinnitus scores, with average drops of 12.7 and 14.5 points.

The results are “quite impressive,” Cederroth says. The reduction in symptoms is larger than other studies have found for bimodal stimulation, he says, and it’s the first evidence of such long-term effects. A 2018 paper that stimulated the skin on the neck and cheek over a shorter time improved patients’ tinnitus, but there was a smaller dip in severity scores, he notes, of only about seven points. And cognitive behavioural therapy, a kind of talk therapy that is currently the only clinically validated tinnitus therapy, improves severity scores by about 10 points on average.

Still, University of Oxford neuroscientist Victoria Bajo notes there was no control group in the trial. Without that, she says, it’s impossible to know how much patients would have improved on their own or with a placebo. The work is good, she says, “but this is the beginning."

Traditional Ayurvedic Foods That Can Boost Immunity

 Building strong immunity is not something that requires rocket science but a little discipline in life. With a good diet, regular exercise and proper sleep, one can have a healthy and strong immune system to defeat an infection that enters the human body. 

The struggle begins with what comes under a good diet because all the nutritious foods can’t be consumed at the same time. For instance, according to Ayurveda, the best time to eat fruit is in the morning. So having fruits like bananas, peaches or pears (fruits which can be consumed empty stomach) at some other time of the day would not be that beneficial for the body as compared to having them in the morning. 

Here are few easily available Ayurvedic Foods that could make your immunity healthier and stronger: 

1. Amla (Indian Gooseberry)

It is considered as a storehouse of Vitamin C. Amla has a very important and frequent role in various formulations and treatments in Ayurveda. This is not only a source of Vitamin C but Calcium, Potassium, Iron and Vitamin B-Complex. The antioxidants present in it help in fighting free radicals; Vitamin C keeps the hair colour black and it acts as a shield against all the infections. 

2.Dates ( Khajoor )

Khajoor carries some beneficial nutrients and immunity-boosting properties. It is a rich source of Iron, Magnesium, Selenium, Copper, Zinc and Vitamins A & B. Due to the abundance of iron in it; people with anaemia are often recommended having dates. They are easy to add to your diet as dessert.

3. Moong Beans (Moong Dal)

Ayurveda suggests moong daal for such conditions like lethargy, tiredness, or irregular bowel movements, because of its rich fibre content along with other essential vitamins, proteins and minerals. The best way to get its maximum health benefit is by having moong dal khichdi. 

4. Ghee 

In Ayurveda, ghee is used for both medicinal and cooking purposes. Rather than just healing or shielding from one particular disease, ghee helps in balancing your complete body function. It has optimum levels of OMEGA 3 & OMEGA 6 fatty-acids which help in making the brain, heart, nervous system and eyes healthier, and boosts immune function naturally from within.

5. Turmeric

Turmeric is suggested because of its immunity-boosting power and immense healing properties. It also protects us from heart diseases and improves blood circulation in the body.

Urgent Need For Fighting Corona Virus with Music and Melodies For Mental Health of Scared Public

THE SAME NATURE which has thrown open the deadly infectious diseases like Corona has also thrown open a treasure house of rhythms and melodies in and around us, but we seem to be mostly unaware of them due to our preoccupation with the modern-day money-making indulgence!

 Our body and mind are blessed with healthy resonance and rhythms, without which we would have long been dead and gone, the disharmony in them is the major cause for all our ailments – both physiological and psychological. Being consciously aware of this harmony should go a long way in enjoying good health. Musicians are aware - though unconsciously – of the bodily rhythms when they sign or when they evolve a beat-pattern. Music thus connects us to our own rhythms and also with the world around, which follow the same patterns. The body recognizes and responds to the pulses of the music in no time.

A therapy system has been developed in recent years to medically address certain conditions such as arthritis, rheumatism, back pain, post-operative healing, sports injuries, bone fracture and muscular injuries. Besides pain reduction, these attempts are reports to help in improving one’s mobility.

Music has tremendous potential as a powerful tool to open up new possibilities for those who have suppressed emotions that cause great harm to the human personalities leading to severe behavioural problems. As emotions represent the ‘outgoing’ feelings, when music is combined, there is every chance of its outward moment, thus clearing the congestion and inhibition that block one’s emotional well-being, Music ranges from the subtle varieties to violent ones. It is also established beyond doubt that music imparts certain healthy mental and emotional patterns to its listeners, which stems from its own organization and pattern.

What Ayurveda Can Offer in fight against Corona virus

As people rush to keep themselves protected from coronavirus, Ayurveda experts have stressed that medicinal herbs such as Amla, Giloy, Shilajit and Neem are helpful in strengthening the immune system which is key to fighting this deadly virus.

* Strong immunity is necessary to fight any kind of foreign body or disease. Coronavirus primarily affects the lungs and the respiratory system. Eating a tablespoonful of Chywanprash daily enhances the immunity, specifically that of lungs and the respiratory system. Amalaki (Emblica Officinalis), Guduchi/glioy (Tinospora Cordifolia), Neem (Azadirachta Indica), Kutki (Picrorhiza Kurroa), Tulsi (basil) are some of the Ayurvedic herbs that are helpful in building the immunity and preventing the infection.

* In Ayurveda, good digestion or strong digestive fire plays a very important role in fighting diseases. Eat a piece of fresh ginger or drink ginger tea. Mint tea, cinnamon tea, and fennel tea to kindle your digestive power

* Putting two-three drops of sesame oil in each nostril and sniffing it in will not only lubricate the nasal passage and throat but also strengthen the inner mucus membrane to keep away foreign bodies. ‘Nasya’, a therapeutic treatment for the nose, throat, sinuses and head, can be done with medicated oils like Anu Taila and Shadabindu oil.

* To fight Covid-19, giloy and Tulasi can be helpful. If someone has symptoms of coronavirus, consuming ‘kadha’ (decoction) of giloy and Tulasi with black pepper, turmeric and ginger will boost immunity and kill all kinds of viruses.

* Swami Ramdev has suggested that people should do pranayama — deep breathing, kapalabhati and anulom vilom to increase immunity.

* You should eat only well-cooked food, avoid spitting in public, and avoid close contact.WHO has said that it is important for people to seek medical care at the earliest if they become sick.

Don’t listen to these crackpot coronavirus myths

The deadly coronavirus may have come from animals, but many of its purported remedies are from total quacks.

This week, the World Health Organization admitted it underestimated the virus’ death toll, which has climbed to over 3,100 since the first case was reported in December. And the fact that public health officials can’t seem to deliver accurate details has driven people to seek answers through more dubious sources, including religious leaders, conspiracy theorists and, of course, random people on social media.

The keys to halting the spread of coronavirus are good hygiene and preventative habits. Given what we do (and don’t) know about the infection, its best advice is similar to what it’s recommended during flu season: to wash hands several times daily, avoid touching the mouth and face and limit contact with sick individuals.

Garlic water, peppercorns or sesame oil

Garlic is delicious, but it’s not a coronavirus drug or vaccine.
Some proponents of traditional medicine have recommended a few strange (and arguably delicious) tools to combat COVID-19, including a sesame oil scrub or drinking water boiled with garlic., the South China Morning Post reported, as well as peppercorns — exactly seven under the tongue. It’s true that all three contain anti-oxidants, which indeed give the immune system a boost.

Garlic is a healthy food that may have some antimicrobial properties. However, there is no evidence from the current outbreak that eating garlic has protected people from 2019-nCoV
Sesame oil is delicious but it does not kill 2019-nCoV,

If your gut is healthy, you don’t have to worry about the corona

It’s true that some 80 per cent of all antibody-producing immune cells are situated in your gut but it’s not the whole story. Since there is no vaccine for coronavirus, the best way to prevent transmission is to be vigilant about personal hygiene. And, as we already know, even seemingly healthy individuals could become ill and die from the mysterious virus.

Vitamin megadoses

Although there is a China-based clinical trial in the works to test the antiviral impact of vitamin C,  gobbling vitamin supplements won’t be the key to keeping coronavirus at bay.


Considered a fundamental of Ayurvedic medicine, yoga is certainly good for the body. But there’s nothing out there to prove that deep breathing or the sun salutation pose will protect you from coronavirus.

World Cancer Day: Trials to develop Ayurveda & Yoga as alternative to cancer treatment

Every year, one million new cancer cases are registered in India, with 7.8 lakh deaths occurring annually. The number of cancer patients in the country is on the rise, with oral cancer accounting for 40 per cent of these cases. World Cancer Day is marked on February 4 to encourage its prevention, detection and treatment.

To develop alternative treatment options for cancer patients, Tata Memorial Hospital will soon start using Ayurveda and yoga. The hospital has tied up with the Ministry of Ayush to conduct two trials on ayurvedic medicine for the treatment of ovarian cancer.

The first study will look at whether the use of ayurvedic medicines can reduce the relapse rate of ovarian cancer. The second trial will monitor whether ayurvedic medicines can reduce the side-effects of neuropathy (nerve damage) caused by existing allopathic medicines in ovarian cancer patients.

The hospital is also conducting a clinical trial to assess whether yoga, done alongside conventional treatment, can help improve a patient’s health.
The latest clinical trial on yoga covers 850 breast cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy or radiotherapy in the Parel-based hospital.
Started five years ago, the hospital is in the process of collating final data on whether yoga has improved quality of life, affected mortality of patients, and improved rate of success of treatment. Preliminary data shows those who do yoga while undergoing treatment had better tolerance levels to chemotherapy.
