H.H. Aba Upadhye to overcome physical illnesses

Disease Remedy
1. Cold and cough (due to increased kapha) Boil pieces of 1 small onion in one glass of water for 10 minutes. Add a teaspoon of jaggery and drink. This decreases the cough.
2. Chronic cold Remove the stalk of a betel leaf. Add ½ teaspoon of honey to it and eat after lunch and dinner for 21 days.
3. Asthma Remove the stalk of a betel leaf. Add ½ teaspoon of honey to it and eat with 2 pinches of ginger powder.
4. Kidney stones Boil 2 teaspoons of celosia (kurdu) seeds in 1 liter of water for 10 minutes and drink that water when thirsty, throughout the day.
5. Diphtheria Make a powder of calabash (kamandal) tree fruits and the middle part of the screwpine (kewda) flower and mix the two powders. Roll a sheet of paper to make a bidi. Fill it with the powder, light and hold it in the mouth and inhale the smoke. Do not exhale through the nostrils. If the diseased is a child then an adult should take the smoke and release it into the mouth of the child through a straw.
6. Plague Rub ice cubes on a plague node for 2 minutes.
7. 72 diseases including stomach disorders Roots of combed nail plant (kombadnakhi) are useful in 72 diseases (available in Ayurvedic shops in Bhimashankar/Tulsibag in Pune). Levigate with milk or water and consume a teaspoon before lunch and dinner.
8. Ascites (accumulation of fluid in abdominal cavity) Apply oil to a calotropis gigantean (rui) leaf and warm on a pan. Foment the abdomen with it and keep it tied to the abdomen all night.
