Once upon a time three sons were engaged in merchantile business under the supervision of their father. They were very rich. Each son was proficient in his own department.

If one was good in sales, the other one was competent in purchases and similarly the third one in finance.

Unluckily, one day the father got bed ridden and the sons decided to divide the business under the fallacy that each of them were experts in their own way and can handle their individual business solely.

The father was glum and grumpy with their decision but was helpless and unfortunately the separation took place.

As a result three of them became each other's competitors. With the passage of time, they started having huge losses in their respective businesses. They tried all possible ways to succeed but the situation became worse.

Then they came to their father for a piece of advice. The father said "when you all were doing the business jointly, the business ran successfully.

But it was not any one of you responsible for the success of the business rather traits of all three of you put together made the business successful".

The sons realized their mistake & got reunited. So we conclude that disunity always ruins.

The Far Eastern concept of Yin and Yang has long been used as a foundation for good health and balance in the lives of millions through the ages. According to Chinese tradition, all things have Yin (passive) and Yang (active) attributes, and achieving balance between the two opposing conditions is the key to harmonious existence.

Ginseng is an ancient stable of traditional Chinese and herbal medicine, and is a cornerstone in the Yin-Yang concept. Though the actual science of Yin and Yang is quite complex, generally speaking one can balance lack of energy or motivation (a Yin condition) by consuming a substance of Yang nature like ginseng. Sometimes too much tension and activity, consumption of a Yang substance, like ginseng, is helpful and restorative to the inner balance.

In general plant researchers agree that ginseng is a powerful adaptogen. An adaptogen is a nontoxic substance that helps to increase resistance against stressful influences of a physical, chemical, or biological nature; and in general, it has a normalizing effect. These attributes are believed to be achieved through ginseng’s ability to stimulate functions that regulate the central nervous system, the cardiovascular system, and endocrine glands.

~Counteracts effects of physical and emotional stress
~Enhances memory
~Stimulates the immune system
~Spurs production of body's own virus-fighting chemicals
~Helps reduce cholesterol levels in blood
~Has anti-clotting effects, reducing the risk of arterial blood clots
~Helps control diabetes by reducing sugar levels
~Antioxidant, preventing cumulative cell damage believed to culminate in cancer
~Protects the liver from effects of drugs, alcohol and toxins
~Minimizes cell damage from radiation
~Counteract fatigue without caffeine and improves stamina
~Increases intestinal absorption of nutrients

Energizing Studies Over the past 50 years, scientific studies have concentrated on the chemistry, pharmacology, and clinical aspects of ginseng use. It is the most researched medicinal herb on the face of the earth. The Russian pharmacologist, Dr. I. Brekhman, was the first to show proven clinical results for humans taking ginseng. In 1948, 100 soldiers ran a three-kilometer race in Vladivostok. Half of the group received ginseng extract, and the other half received a flavored placebo. The ginseng group averaged 53 seconds faster than the placebo group (Zen-Shen, Leningrad, State Publishing House of Medical Literature, 1957).

Studies, which were done with wireless operators and telegraphers for mental concentration and coordination, showed that individuals taking ginseng made fewer mistakes and were able to transmit text significantly faster than those given a placebo (Papers on the Study of Ginseng and Other Medicinal Plants of the Far East, Vladivostok, 1963).

In England, a double-blind, placebo-controlled, crossover study was performed on nurses undergoing shift work. Dr. Stephen Fulder and his colleagues studied British nurses in a London hospital during regular periods of night duty. Korean white ginseng (1200 mg.) or a placebo in capsule form was given under double blind conditions to 12 nurses of both sexes on three consecutive days before night duty. The nurses who took ginseng felt more alert and tranquil during their work and performed better during a test of speed and coordination (Proceedings of the International Ginseng Symp., Ginseng Research Institute, 1974: 81 - 85).

Topic: Ginseng and cold tolerance
Source: Dr. Larry Wang, University of Alberta, Department of Zoology, 1994

Interested in the possibility of using ginseng to minimize cold stress, Dr. Wang and his Traditional Medicine Research program undertook to isolate Ginsenosides and their selected individual components RB1 and Rg1 from North American Panax quinquefolius, using modern chromatographic techniques developed by the TMRP team.

Laboratory rats were exposed to cold for two hours, their metabolic rates, as measured by oxygen consumption and carbon dioxide production were continuously monitored. Change of rectal temperature before and after the exposure was also recorded. Metabolic and thermoregulatory performances of the rats was compared between experimental (Ginsenoside) and control (distilled water) treatments. Results indicated that feeding rats with a single dose of Ginsenosides at 100mg/kg was able to significantly improve their cold tolerance, the rats were able to generate heat at a greater rate, sustain it more effectively, and keep themselves much warmer.

Dr. Wangs studies on rats provide insight that Ginsenosides enhance cold tolerance. It is felt that the warming effects of Ginsenosides are equally applicable to humans. In china, the elderly have traditionally used ginseng root to keep warm in the winter.

Instead of caffeine or amphetamines for tiredness and exhaustion (i.e. from overwork, insomnia, "hang-over'), long distance driving, stage performance, athletic performance and strenuous physical work.

A long term restorative benefiting health from gradual and continuous use. Helps in the convalescence from disease and helps overcome tiredness.

Mental benefits
Improves mental states in elderly. Recommended for depression, insomnia, and is said to improve one's spirit's and improve outlook on life. Other general effects include assisting memory loss, concentration, alertness, and improving learning ability.

Helps to resist long-term effects of stress damage to one's blood system and digestion.

Regulating Blood Pressure
Clinical test with elderly patients having high blood pressure showed that ginseng produced a small reduction in blood pressure. Ginseng is safely taken by those with cardiovascular disorders and can be taken in addition to prescribed drugs without risk of incompatibility.

Sexual function
Reputation as an aphrodisiac because it increases general vitality. Ginseng may have an effects on the sexual glands as a part of its overall effect on the hormones of the body.

Reduces and prevents side effects of menopause. Increases the regulation of hormones and may be taken by women at an early age in order to increase their resistance capacity and to prevent possible menopausal disorder.

One of the most common and characteristic symptoms of acute overdose of Panax ginseng is bleeding. Symptoms of mild overdose with Panax ginseng may include dry mouth and lips, excitation, fidgeting, irritability, tremor, palpitations, blurred vision, headache, insomnia, increased body temperature, increased blood pressure, edema, decreased appetite, increased sexual desire, dizziness, itching, eczema, early morning diarrhea, bleeding, and fatigue.

Symptoms of gross overdose with Panax ginseng may include nausea, vomiting, irritability, restlessness, urinary and bowel incontinence, fever, increased blood pressure, increased respiration, decreased sensitivity and reaction to light, decreased heart rate, cyanotic (blue) facial complexion, red facial complexion, seizures, convulsions, and delirium.

Patients experiencing any of the above symptoms are advised to discontinue the herbs and seek any necessary symptomatic treatment.

There are two distinct types of ginseng grown in the world.
 1)American ginseng (white or yellow in color)
 2)Asiatic ginseng (red color).

 They claim that American ginseng has a cooling quality on the body versus a heating quality for Asiatic ginseng. The traditional Ying and Yang if you will.

American Ginseng (Panax quinquefolium L.)

American ginseng seems to be the most common name. Panax quinquefolium is native to Eastern North America from Southern Ontario to Georgia and as far west as Wisconsin. Panax quinquefolium is now also grown in China. Panax quinquefolium is believed to give a cooling effect to the body.This cooling, energy giving, endurance enhancing factor is believed to be the most beneficial for our fast paced, stressful world.

Asiatic Ginseng (Panax Ginseng)

Asian, Korean, or Chinese ginseng (all common names) refers to a plant native to North Korea and China but Red Ginseng is a processed product and is made from steaming Korean grown Panax white ginseng for 8 - 10 hours then drying; often it is processed further into tea, capsules or slices. Panax ginseng is used to warm the body.

Siberian Ginseng (Eleutherococcus senticosis)

Siberian ginseng, is a commonly found product given the common name of ginseng. It is not a true ginseng or it would have the genus Panax. It is though, related to the ginseng group as they both are in the Araliaceae family of plants, a very large grouping, including devil's club and sarsasparilla. Siberian ginseng does not have the chemicals called ginsenocides in its root but are said to have chemicals that do similar thing s. It is grown in Russia and China mainly and is native to East Russia and down to the Japanese Island of Hokkaido. The common name ginseng is so attached to this plant we will probably never get rid of it but customers should know it is not a true ginseng.

Ginseng plant introduction,brief history of ginseng,quote about ginseng plant,ginseng plant history,history of ginseng plant.

Today one of the most selling plant in all the western country is Ginseng.
What is Ginseng?
Ginseng is a short, perennial plant of the Araliaceae botanical family. It grows naturally on the slopes of ravines and shady, well drained mountainous hardwood forests. It bears five compound leaves on a single stalk at maturity.Ginseng is found only in the Northern Hemisphere, in North America and in eastern Asia (mostly Korea, northern China (Manchuria), and eastern Siberia), typically in cooler climates.  An insignificant gray flower blooms each spring and by late summer has turned into a cluster of crimson fruit from which the ginseng seed is obtained.

The plant grows between 7 to 21 inches in height when wild. The root is creamy yellow or white resembling a parsnip with rootlets that branch off, sometimes taking the shape of a human body. The root is the part that is consumed.

Ginseng is the most widely used herb in the Orient.

The History of Ginseng: 
The Chinese have been using ginseng for over 5000 years. They composed the name ginseng from two words meaning "Man Plant" from its frequent likeness to the human form. It was later given the botanical name Panax derived from the Greek for All Healing or Cure All and related to the word Panacea. It comes as a surprise to most North Americans that the variety of ginseng native to this continent, known as Panax quinquefolium L., has been used by our native peoples in a similar fashion as their Asian cousins who use panax ginseng. Ginseng and all of its products are made from 100% pure whole root.

Ginseng has been the most highly respected herb since ancient times by both Chinese and Native American herbalists. As known by these ancient healers, this herb seems to help the mind and body to be in balance.

A Quote about Ginseng from the Nutrition Almanac:
"Ginseng strengthens the heart and nervous system. It builds general mental and physical vitality and resistance to disease by strengthening and stimulating the endocrine glands that control all basic physiological processes including the metabolism of vitamins and minerals. Soviet researchers report that ginseng normalizes the level of arterial pressure and is effective in the treatment of both hypertension and hypotension."

About Ginseng:
Ginseng is one of nature's greatest gifts. It is used to increase physical and mental endurance, boost energy, normalize body functions, reduce cholesterol, and prevent cancer. Traditionally, ginseng has been used to enhance sexual desire, by promoting sex hormone production. Ginseng supports the natural balance of your body to combat fatigue and strengthens and protects your nervous system.

Now modern research has demonstrated that over 28 therapeutic elements (ginsenosides) are in this vitamin rich plant. Recent research shows that regular use of Ginseng is helpful in the treatment of memory loss (Alzheimer's), balance of blood sugar levels (Diabetes), slowing down the aging process, helping the immune system, etc.

Once upon a time there lived a cloth merchant in a village with his wife and two children. They were indeed quite well-off. They had a beautiful hen which laid an egg everyday.

It was not an ordinary egg, rather, a golden egg. But the man was not satisfied with what he used to get daily. He was a get rich-trice kind of a person.

The man wanted to get all the golden eggs from his hen at one single go. So, one day he thought hard and at last clicked upon a plan. He decided to kill the hen and get all the eggs together.

So, the next day when the hen laid a golden egg, the man caught hold of it, took a sharp knife, chopped off its neck and cut its body open.

There was nothing but blood all around & no trace of any egg at all. He was highly grieved because now he would not get even one single egg.

His life was going on smoothly with one egg a day but now, he himself made his life miserable. The outcome of his greed was that he started becoming poorer & poorer day by day and ultimately became a pauper. How jinxed and how much foolish he was.

So, the moral of the story is- one who desires more, looses all. One should remain satisfied with what one gets.

The Sweet Mangoes(INSPIRING STORY1)

Posted by GUILBERT RAJ P Wednesday, May 23, 2012 0 comments
Once there was a man who liked to eat mangoes. One day he decided to get the sweetest mango available, from the very top of the tree. Mangoes which are exposed to the sun the most are the sweetest.

So he climbed up to the top, where the branches were thin. He managed to pick up a few sweet reddish fruits, but, in an attempt to climb down, he slipped and started falling towards the ground. Fortunately, he caught the branch as he was falling and remained helplessly hanging on the tree. Then he started to call nearby villagers for help. They immediately came with a ladder and sticks, but could do little to help him.

Then after some time one calm and thoughtful person arrived – a well-known sage who lived in a simple hut nearby. People were very curious to see what he would do, as he was famous in solving many people’s problems in the area and sometimes very complicated ones. He was silent for a minute and then picked up a stone and threw it at the hanging man.

Everybody was surprised. The hanging mango lover started to shout:
“What are you doing?! Are you crazy? Do you want me to break my neck?” The sage was silent. Then he took another stone and threw it at the man. The man was furious: “If I could just come down, I would show you.! ”

That’s what everybody wanted. That he came down. But how? Now everybody was tense, as to what would happen next! Some wanted to chastise the sage, but they didn’t. The sage picked another stone and threw it again at the man, even more forcefully. Now the man on the tree was enraged and developed a great determination to come down and take revenge.

He then used all his skill and strength and somehow reached the branches which were safe to start going down. And he made it! Everybody was amazed.

“Where is the sage?!” – exclaimed the rescued man. “Oh, he is a wise man. So he didn’t wait for you to beat him,”- said the villagers. “I will really smash him completely!” “Hey, wait a minute. He is the only one who helped you. He is the one who provoked you, who induced you to help yourself.”

The mango freak stopped for a second, thought for a moment and admitted: “Yes, all your good intentions and compassion didn’t help me. But he expertly induced me to give my best and save myself. I should be thankful and not angry.”

 Remember the '3' steps, STR . Read and Learn!
Sometimes symptoms of a stroke are difficult to identify. Unfortunately, the lack of awareness spells disaster.
The stroke victim may suffer severe brain damage when people nearby fail to recognize the symptoms of a stroke.

Now doctors say a bystander can recognize a stroke by asking three simple questions :

S * Ask the individual to SMILE ..
T * = TALK. Ask the person to SPEAK A SIMPLE SENTENCE (Coherently) (eg 'It is sunny out today').
R * Ask him or her to RAISE BOTH ARMS .

If he or she has trouble with ANY ONE of these tasks, call the ambulance and describe the symptoms to the dispatcher.

NOTE : Another 'sign' of a stroke is
1. Ask the person to 'stick' out their tongue.
2. If the tongue is 'crooked', if it goes to one side or the other that is also an indication of a stroke.

A prominent cardiologist says if everyone who gets this status shares it; you can bet that at least one life will be saved

Cough and Cold Natural Treatments via Ayurvedic Cure

Posted by GUILBERT RAJ P Wednesday, May 16, 2012 0 comments
According to ayurvedic thought, the causes for cough and cold include irritation of the kapha by consuming cold or fried items. Kapha is one of the three humors of the body in ayurveda and is similar to the concept of phlegm in Western thought on the humors. The other two humors in ayurvedic medicine are called vata and pitta. It is when there is an imbalance in these humors that various diseases and conditions develop. It is also possible for cough and cold to be the result of the changing seasons.
Here are some things that, according to ayurvedic thought, should be avoided while you have a cough and cold as they are thought to aggravate the condition:

  • Cold: food, drinks, showers, air conditioning
  • Sweets: juices, pastries, candies
  • Milk Products: like cheese and yogurt
  • Meat Products
  • Breads and Nuts
  • Sleeping during the day
