Medicinal properties of Kheri ka Panna:
Keri ka pana is light and easily digestible. It quenches thirst, cools the body, and gives instant energy, especially in the summer. It is good for hyperacidity, anti emetic, carmminativeand heat-induced headache.

Dosha Analysis:
Mint leaves are warming in nature and raw mango is cooling in nature. Thus, it is a balanced recipe. Raw mango is boiled and this process also changes the properties of the mango. Keri ka panna pacifies Pitta, Vata and Kapha doshas if taken in proper quantity. In excessive quantity it increases all three doshas. Skin of raw mango has to be removed else it is astringent in taste hence it can reverse a few attributes of the preparation.

5 Ways To Fight Off Post Holidays Weight Gain (Without Dieting)

Few people just never get fat (even if they eat 10x more than you.) But for you, weight management is quite difficult. And this difficulty increases even more during holiday’s season because you are continuously tempted by your favorite foods. Besides this, you start thinking what difference one Puri will make anyway; It’s only one Gulabjamun.

Here are the five best of my tips to fight off post holiday weight gain:-

No wonder you end up gaining few more pounds. Okay let it be, now the question is: How do you get rid of this excess weight quickly?

1. Melt Your Pounds With Meditation
Thinking what meditation has to do with weight? Well, a lot. Because when you are stressed “Cortisol” increases which in turn increases your cravings for sugary and fatty foods. So meditation is your best tool to fight stress. But you might be stressed now how do I start it? Don’t panic, here’s a step-by-step procedure to guide you:-
1-  Get yourself in a comfortable sitting position.
2-  Let your thoughts come and go.
3-  You can do it up to 10 minutes, but if you start feeling tired then stop it.
Tip : Do not try to control your thoughts, let them come and go on their own.

 

2. Slim Your Waistline By Synchronizing Your Alarm With Sun Rise
Waking up with sun decreases Tamas. The less Tamas you’ve, the less fat you have.
1 – Put an alarm for 5 A.M in the morning, and wake up when it starts buzzing.
2 – Sounds difficult? Okay, then wake up an hour before you are used to.







3. Keep Your Waistline In Control By Keeping Your Schedule In Control
Ayurveda has laid out strict routines to follow that changes from season to season.
1 – Sleep at same time every day.
2 – Wake up same time every day.
3 – Eat, play and watch TV at same time.
These steps might sound simple, but they makes a huge difference.
Tip : Consult an Ayurvedic doctor for more advice on routine as per your location and season.




4. Torture Your Fat With Exercise
Ayurveda advises different constitution of people needs different kind of exercise. But in general you can follow the following steps : –
1 – Walk for 10 minutes either in the morning or in the evening.
2 – Engage in your favorite sports twice a week.






Sleep5. Be Light On Weight Scale By Sleeping Heavily
At times, you must compromise your sleep.
But you should not compromise on it unless it’s absolutely necessary. I mean to say that your chatting buddy or late night movie can wait, but don’t trade your sleep for them. Why? Because researchers say sleep deprivation triggers a chemical reaction that increases people’s hunger levels and desire for salty and sweet snacks.
1 – Sleep at the same time every day (Preferably by 10.30 pm). Remember that sleeping is the best gift that you can give yourself.
2 – Sounds difficult? Then give yourself a 1 hour window i.e you sleep daily between 10.30 to 11.30 pm. This is a must for weekdays, but you might take the weekend off if desired.
Remember, you don’t have to do every item on this list. Pick whichever ones stand out – and knock them off the list. Start small. Start with one. You have the time… it’s up to you do it.

Lucky for you, I’ve already written 17 awesome tips to reduce your fat.

Benefits of rice mentioned in Ayurveda texts

Ayurvedic Properties of Rice

Rasa (Taste): Sweet

Virya (Potency): Cooling

Vipaka (Post digestive effective): Sweet

Guna (Qualities): Unctuous, nourishing and Strength promoting. Brown rice is light to digest and white polished rice is slightly heavy to digest

Actions on the doshas: Balances Vata and Pitta and increases Kapha. But old rice does not increase Kapha.

“Old rice” (one year maturity after harvest) versus new rice  (Freshly harvested rice)

Freshly harvested rice is hard to digest, whereas 1-year-old rice is “lighter” and two-year old rice is even more “excellent in quality”. Also Ayurveda texts explain that old rice is wholesome in diabetes and obesity. Ayurveda recommends storage of rice in moist free airtight containers.

Now – a – days we are eating newer and newer rice which is becoming harder and harder for us to digest.

With respect to the preparation of rice, the Ayurvedic texts explain that dry roasting (i.e. drying over heat) certain varieties of rice can make them “light” to digest and hence beneficial when the digestive fire is low. In addition, there are references to the digestive benefits of soaking rice prior to cooking it. Soaking the rice for at least 1 hour prior to cooking them will make it lighter for digestion.

Some benefits of rice mentioned in Ayurveda texts –

•  From Ayurvedic point of view, rice provides the basis of wide range of healing gruels. Rice was prepared as a thin stew with specific spices to treat different illnesses.

•  Kichari made of old rice and mung is beneficial to a person suffering from fever or stomach disorder.

•  Rice gruel mixed with ghee or butter is advised throughout pregnancy. As rice, ghee and butter are cooling and anabolic, they nourish the mother – to be as well as help in proper growth of the fetus.

•  Old rice is beneficial in diabetes and obesity.

•  Indications of rice wash water (Tandulodaka) are also mentioned in many disorders like bleeding disorders, leucorrhoea, etc.
