Himalaya is one of the most popular brands of health and beauty products in India. Around 200 million Himalaya products are distributed around the world each year.
Himalaya started in 1930 with one man, Mr M Manal and his hand-operated tablet making press. Since then it has grown to a huge company with numerous products and stores.
Himalaya’s herbal Ayurvedic tablets and medicines cater for over sixty different ailments from heartburn to osteoporosis. My family and I have tried many of these remedies with great success.
Himalaya also have a wonderful beauty range with cleansers, soaps, shampoos and many other products. They are extremely well priced and are made from all natural ingredients such as saffron, neem, pomegranate and walnut. Recently they launched a range of Ayurvedic products for pets so now the whole family is covered.
It is very easy to find Himalaya products in India as they are sold at most small pharmacies and supermarkets. They also have Himalaya specialty shops in many towns and cities. I visited the store in Mysore last trip and it had an amazing range.
We always joke with my husband Rahul about his “magnetic personality”. He has a profound knack of attracting people to him just like the most powerful magnet without even trying. However yesterday that magnetic force needed a little boost.
Rahul came home from work last night with a big booming headache. I know it is easy to hit a headache with paracetamol tablets but Rahul and I are very keen on the “alternative or complimentary therapies” so we tried a different method.
A few years ago in India I bought some low powered magnets and a wonderful book called “Be your own doctor with magnet therapy” by Dr D. R. Gala. Since then I have successfully used the magnets for innumerable ailments. Magnets work by restoring the natural vibratory frequency to the body. The electromagnetic waves provided by magnets are capable of deep penetration in the body. When magnets are placed on the body the regeneration process immediately begins on that part of the body.
How to get rid of a headache with magnets…
- Place the south pole of a weak magnet on the forehead for 15 minutes or longer if required. Usually one treatment will rid you of your headache however the treatment may be repeated after and hour or so.
So back to Rahul…he laid on the lounge and after a few minutes with the magnet on his forehead the pounding had ceased and after twenty minutes his headache had completely subsided. A full recovery without any tablets or cost. Yay…Rahul was back to his normal cheeky self and magnets saved the day again.
More magnet treatments to follow.
MAY THE MAGNETIC FORCE BE WITH YOU…
I just adore mudras. The Vaayu mudra is a very easy mudra to master. To complete this mudra you place the tip of the index finger on the base of the thumb. Then apply gentle pressure with the thumb on the index finger. Hold the mudra for 15 minutes.
It is a great mudra for calming the mind and our nervous system. It can help with sleeplessness, irritability and restlessness. It is especially helpful in getting rid of hiccups…just try it next time…
