The Mayo Clinic describes gallstones like this:
Gallstones are hardened deposits of digestive fluid that can form in your gallbladder. Your gallbladder is a small, pear-shaped organ on the right side of your abdomen, just beneath your liver. The gallbladder holds a digestive fluid called bile that’s released into your small intestine. Gallstones range in size from as small as a grain of sand to as large as a golf ball. Some people develop just one gallstone, while others develop many gallstones at the same time. People who experience symptoms from their gallstones usually require gallbladder removal surgery. Gallstones that don’t cause any signs and symptoms typically don’t need treatment.
- What it means is that there is now ample proof that Haritaki has remarkable effects on brain. The third eye is part of the human brain, and as it increases in performance so does the rest of the brain.
- Body scanning reveals the effects of Haritaki on the body. Just about all body scanners were able to see the strong cleansing effects of Haritaki on the digestive system vs any other normal digestion. They reported to me that it is almost like two different beings, one regular without Haritaki, and two cleansed and healthy and vibrant, with regular Haritaki.

Research indicates that a normal dosage of Haritaki powder is about 500mg
Haritaki powder is made from the dried fruit of the tree Terminalia chebula, also known as Kadukkai Podi in Tamil, and Harad in Hindi.
The powder is excellent for extending life and creating great health. One of the main ways that it does this is to cleanse the intestinal walls. In Sanskrit this is known as Anulomana, or purging, “putting to the right”
When taken regularly haritaki cleanses the intestinal walls of the debris that can build up there and stop effective absorbing of the food nutrients.
Many people that I know that are taking Haritaki are reporting that the bowel movement aspect leaves them feeling very clear and free. One friend was visiting last night and reported that he can feel a huge difference when taking haritaki in comparison to not taking it. He feels that the cleansing action of the haritaki on the bowels leaves him feeling lighter and cleansed. When he does not take haritaki he feels that he spends longer at the bathroom attempting to expel.
Haritaki and cleansing reactions
Haritaki can trigger a cleansing reaction in some people. This shows up as high volume bowel movements in succession. This can be part of a cleansing of the whole intestinal tract. I recommend that you view this as a necessary part of cleansing. If it persists reduce the amount of the dosage of Haritaki.
I recommend that you play with the dosage amount you take. I recommend that you start with small amounts, 1/2 teaspoon taken at night, and then increase until you can take a large teaspoon each night. If you react strongly to the haritaki, reduce the amount taken until you reach an amount that works for you.
Anti aging skin care products
Are you looking for anti aging skin care products? Have you thought of buying one?
Anti aging skin care products remind me of the song ’18 till I die’. Indeed, anti aging skin care products are very popular today; and why not, who doesn’t want to look young for ever?
Talking of anti aging skin care products, the first thing that comes to mind is vitamin C based anti aging skin care products. These products work by enabling the synthesis of collagen (a structural protein that is found in skin). This category of anti aging skin care products is related to anti-oxidants. Anti aging skin care products that are based on vitamin C are, however, posed with the danger of getting oxidised themselves (as they come into contact with air during their usage). So some anti aging skin care products are based on the derivatives of vitamin C, which are more stable and less expensive. However, the effectiveness of such anti aging skin care is not as much as it is for vitamin C based ant aging skin care products.
Besides vitamin C, vitamin E and lipoic acid are anti-oxidants too.
Vitamin E is a fat-soluble anti-oxidant that is found in human blood and helps in building resistance against infection. Vitamin E is also known to inhibit cancer. Liponic acid is known to combat the signs of aging very effectively by reversing the skin damage caused by the aging process.
Phytochemicals form the other category of anti aging skin care products. Phytochemical are special chemicals that are extracted from plants. There are a variety of phytochemicals that are in use today. Phytochemicals prevent occurrence of cancer of certain types; these include prostate cancer, breast cancer and colon cancer. That is why they find their place in anti aging skin care products.
Some B-vitamins like B5, B6 and B12 are also in use for anti aging skin care products.
The field of anti aging skin care products is vast and needs a lot of research. Though the currently available products are effective, they still have challenges to combat. Hopefully, these challenges will get resolved in due course and help get better and cheaper anti aging skin care products.
However, anti aging skin care products should be used only as a supplement to the natural ways of skin and body care. So, drinking a lot of water, getting a good night sleep, exercising regularly, maintaining healthy eating habits and keeping stress at bay are essential means of delaying the aging process. No anti aging skin care product can replace them really.
Haritaki is proving itself to be very helpful for skincare.
it contains anti fungal properties that have healed fungal issues. Haritaki also has be helpful in reducing the effects of cuts to the skin.
Now that you know everything about skin care products, it would be easier to choose which one is the best for you.
Haritaki heals Mouth Sores and ulcers
Haritaki is proven to heal mouth sores in both testimonials and also in clinical studies. A very strong testimonial comes from Louanne Tung who lives in the Livermore area of California. She is a strong proponent of Haritaki having had so many great results in a variety of health issues. She reports that she has helped a number of people with mouth sores and ulcers. The best way to use Haritaki to help with sores is to take the Haritaki as a powder and wet it in your mouth and then with your tongue apply it to the area with the sores or ulcers. Hold the Haritaki in that area for some minutes, typically 5 minutes and then you can swallow the Haritaki powder.
Mouth sores defined
A mouth ulcer (also termed an oral ulcer, or a mucosal ulcer) is an ulcer that occurs on the mucous membrane of the oral cavity. Mouth ulcers are very common, occurring in association with many diseases and by many different mechanisms, but usually there is no serious underlying cause.
The two most common causes of oral ulceration are local trauma (e.g. rubbing from a sharp edge on a broken filling) andaphthous stomatitis (“canker sores”), a condition characterized by recurrent formation of oral ulcers for largely unknown reasons. Mouth ulcers often cause pain and discomfort, and may alter the person’s choice of food while healing occurs (e.g. avoiding acidic or spicy foods and beverages).
They may form individually or multiple ulcers may appear at the same time (a “crop” of ulcers). Once formed, the ulcer may be maintained by inflammation and/or secondary infection. Rarely, a mouth ulcer that does not heal may be a sign of oral cancer.
The of study Haritaki, Terminalia chebula and mouth sores is listed here:
Use of an aqueous extract of Terminalia chebula as an anticaries agent: a clinical study.
Division of Conservative, Dentistry and Endodontics, Rajah Muthiah Dental College and Hospital, Annamalai University, Chidambaram, Tamilnadu – 608 002, India.
Plant-derived medicines have been a part of our traditional health care system, and the antimicrobial properties of plant-derived compounds are well documented. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effect of an aqueous extract of Terminalia chebula (a medicinal plant) on salivary samples and its potential for use as an anticaries agent in the form of mouthwash. A concentrated aqueous extract was prepared from the fruit of T. chebula . A mouth rinse of 10% concentration was prepared by diluting the extract in sterile distilled water. The efficacy of the mouth rinse was assessed by testing on 50 salivary samples. Salivary samples were collected from subjects assessed to be at high risk for caries. Salivary pH, buffering capacity, and microbial activity were assessed before rinsing, immediately after, and 10 min, 30 min, and 1 h after rinsing. There was an increase in the pH and buffering capacity and decrease in microbial count. An aqueous extract of T. chebula used as a mouth rinse seems to be an effective anticaries agent.

Add more joy to your Yoga!
The whole purpose of yoga is to create “Union”, oneness with all. In this union we often find that our oneness is full of joy, bliss and love.
Is your yoga full of joy bliss and love?
If not, why not?
Sure, at the end of the yoga class you are almost certainly experiencing some aspect of oneness. Sometimes it may be that “out of it” feeling, other times intense peace, other times a feeling of dissolving into everything. There is a myriad of experiences available at the end of the practice.
But how about during the practice? Is your mind chattering about the pain, the to do list, desire to be even better? Are you caught in comparison with the next student who is doing yoga better than you?
Here are 2 techniques that bring “Union” into your yoga practice earlier than waiting for the Shivasana posture that heralds the end of the class.
- Keep bringing your focus back to the breath.
As you move your body into, through, and out of the poses, constantly bring your focus to the breath. This gives the mind something organic to place its attention on. The breath is changing constantly, a challenge that aids the mind in staying focused and out of boredom.
- Create Bliss in your Muscle Memory
Muscle memory is a fact! If you burn your a finger, that finger will remember the experience and protect itself by from heat in the future.
If you are thinking constantly about a stressful situation at work while doing yoga, this will get imprinted into your muscle memory and you will move away from yoga, like your finger moves away from heat.
You can use muscle memory to your advantage. This technique was taught to me by the famous Indian yogi, Paramahamsa Nithyananda. He recommends that we consciously plan on breathing in bliss and breathing out bliss with every movement and yoga pose. He emphasizes that bliss is our very essence. By moving our body while invoking the experience of bliss, this becomes embedded into our muscle memory and the ultimate goal of yoga is achieved in each moment. Here is an example of how to do this:
- Breathe in bliss. As you breathe in, bring the awareness to the breath and breathe in bliss. Feel the bliss flowing through your whole body. Allow your whole body to resonate with that feeling and experience.
- Breathe out Bliss. On the out breath, visualize that you are breathing out bliss. Your breath is nothing but bliss.
- Each breath is bliss. With each breath and each movement, keep the focus totally in the in-and-out breathing of bliss.
- Increase the Bliss. As you develop this feeling in your body, allow it to become stronger and stronger.
- Feel the bliss throughout your body. Now begin to feel that bliss flowing throughout your body.
- Increase that feeling. Your body will now be alive with joy and ecstasy in a very fiery way.
- Take that Bliss into your day. Now remember that feeling consciously at different times during the day.
Enjoy these techniques regularly and feel the union with “oneness” increasing and enveloping you more and more! Let me know what your experience is.
I am at the Kumbh Mela in Ujain India, with about 30 million other pilgrimage makers!
It is a totally wild scene here. I am at the program being run by Paramahamsa Nithyananda. The program is about developing the ability to increase intuition and there are some remarkable events showing up. For instance, the other day about 90% of over 2000 participants shared that they had intuitively recognized various objects using their third eye.
Nithyananda recommends that we all take Haritaki daily as part of our regime to increase consciousness.
The children here are frequently and casually displaying remarkable intuitive skills. For instance, one friend had lost a sacred jewel from his bed area. He had searched three times for it. He went to one of the children. They closed their eyes and scanned and told him that the sacred jewel was inside his suitcase on one corner of it. He went and looked and, lo and behold there it was. This sort of story is quite common the kids are the automatic go to when an article is lost, and their success is almost 100%
Many people here are also reporting great success with Haritaki.
Ian, a professional musician feels that it gives him much more energy. He was developing a sore in his mouth, so asked me for help and took some capsules, crunched on them and reported that he immediately felt some relief, and reported later that the issue was cleared.
One of the highlights the time here is seeing the rapid improvement in third eye reading by the adults and children. Each day more and more people show skills. Today a friend, Sylvia from Vancouver, came to me and told me that she was asked to read with her third eye what another person was thinking. She said that she scanned for about 2 minutes and then saw me. She said,” Dheera?” She was correct, the other person, another friend of mine had decided to visualize me. Sylvia was really happy to have that image appear for her and have it confirmed.
For myself I too have had some breakthroughs. One day we were asked to identify a color that the team lead was thinking of. As soon as the question was asked I sensed the word blue from my internal intuition. This was correct. The next question about what the team lead was thinking was also correct.
Many people here are used to taking Haritaki, they are confirmed long term takers, who feel that the product is helping them a lot. Many of them are able to take it by the spoonful.
