Are you sick & tired of being sick & tired? Reading this could literally save your life. Get well & stay well the eastern way!
You can apply these rules to pretty much every disease & sickness but for arguments sake, let’s start with acid in the throat. More irritating than serious and common in the West where we tend to eat on the go. Acid occurs with the accumulation of too much PITTA dosha or fire in the system. Don’t worry if you haven’t heard of Dosha I’ll explain in more detail later. Eastern healthcare or Ayurveda accepts there are 3 main Dosha, which keep us functioning on all levels as human beings. If these are neglected, they also contribute to 6 stages of disease progression or ‘SAMPRAPTI’
Symptom: Throat acid & the 6 stages of Disease Progression.
STAGE 1 : Accumulation Because we don’t give much thought to how throat acid manifests, we don’t do much about it. So it doesn’t take long to enter STAGE 2-
When ordering online from a trusty Ayurvedic pharmacy in Rishikesh, I should’ve known it wouldn’t be straightforward.
Whilst living in India, this little place had been a hidden gem, away from the hustle & bustle of the busy Rishikesh markets – so back home in the UK, I thought I’d try ordering from their website. If anything, the entertainment value has been fantastic, but the quality of the oils I actually got is a whole other matter. So this is how it goes 😂 Only in India! Purchasing pure Rose oil can be an expensive venture in the UK at around £30 for a small bottle – so to get it in India for around £6 is a massive bonus. Anyway I accessed the website and ordered 1 bottle of rosé oil, 1 bottle of frankincense at £4 & 1 bottle of lime oil at £2 and waited. Exactly 1 month later, my parcel arrived in traditional Indian style – bound in cotton and hand stitched. The excitement was killing me, especially knowing I was getting such a top quality product. That’s why I was so unprepared for what was inside. The rose oil was there in its perfect little bottle. The frankincense was half full & the lime oil bottle looked 100 years old & completely empty. Inside was a note which read:
I only charge you half price because it’s half full and I don’t charge you for lime because it’s empty.
