20 Herbs from Tribal Domain for Remedying Acidity

20 Herbs from Tribal Domain for Remedying Acidity

The traditional storage of ethnobotanical knowledge in memory and practices has a long history and must go back to the beginning of human existence. Likewise, ethnobotany is of great age in India, where it has been described in several ancient literatures. One of the most important sources is the Rig Veda (1200-900 BC), which has been useful in the attempt to identify the source of the traditional medicine system, also known as 'Ayurveda'. Application of such herbal remedies has also been mentioned in the Atharva Veda (around 3,000 to 2,000 BC). It was in the 19th century when scientists started focusing on the active components found in herbs that gave a way to the research on molecular level. Herbs like Caraway, Cardamom, Turmeric, Aniseed, Clove, Cumin seeds, Basil, Ginger etc. are a few among the gigantic range of culinary herbs (Acharya 2004, 2012; Acharya and Shrivastava, 2008).

Acidity is something that we have all suffered with. Acidity is basically the result of excess secretion of acids from the gastro-glands of stomach. Heartburn is a main symptom of this problem. Interestingly, major dominance of this problem is seen in fast-paced cities where human body has become like a machine. The imbalance of biological clock and routine has disturbed the internal equation of the body. Disorders like indigestion, acidity, gastric troubles and many others have become very common ailments we face everyday. The side effects of synthetic antacids are known to the world and this is high time to understand the role of herbs in the treatment of disorders like acidity.

Tribesmen in India have been using herbs for remedying their day to day health disorders from the ages (Acharya & Sancheti, 2005; Acharya & Acharya, 2007; Acharya and Shrivastava, 2011). Patalkot in Madhya Pradesh and Dangs in Gujarat are two remote pockets where I have been working for more than 15 years and documenting their indigenous knowledge about herbs. In this article, I am trying mention herbal formulations pertaining to 20 important medicinal plants for the cure of acidity.

5 Therapeutic Herbs for Sciatica

5 Promising Therapeutic Herbs for Sciatica5 Wonder Therapeutic Herbs for Sciatica

The human population in the Patalkot valley is purely tribal. Due to constant association with forest environment, the tribals have accrued considerable knowledge of plants and their utility for medicinal purposes. The uses of many of the medicinal plants employed by tribals are, however, not known outside their restricted community (Acharya and Shrivastava, 2008, 2011). Several plant species inhabiting the region are recognized for their medicinal potential. The age-old herbal healers employ several formulations for resolving a range of human health disorders (Acharya, 2012).

The fast paced urban life has resulted series of disorders, and sciatica is one among many of those. People with job of prolonged sitting and sedentary lifestyle are more prone to develop sciatica than those who are active and living with a set biological clock. Sciatica is a pain in the buttock and leg, caused by pressure on nerves in the lower back. The pain is mainly felt on one side of the body, which is usually aggravated by a prolonged exposure to cold weather. Herbal healers known as Bhumka employ certain herbs for curing sciatica. Let me discuss formulations pertaining to 5 wonder herbs considered by the indigenous tribesmen for taking care of sciatica.

9 Herbs and Spices With Proven Health Benefits

9 Herbs and Spices With Proven Health Benefits

Even when our food choices aren't the best, herbs and spices do more than just improve taste.  They give any meal a nutrition boost.  And according to a new study they may even reverse the damage from an unhealthy meal. 

Researchers from Penn State University cooked up coconut chicken, cheese bread and a dessert biscuit for six men. The subjects were aged 30 to 65 and overweight but otherwise healthy.  On one day the meal was served plain.  On another day researchers added two tablespoons of a blend of nine herbs and spices to the meal. 

After each meal the researchers drew blood from the subjects every 30 minutes for four hours.  They found that antioxidant activity in the blood increased 13% after the spicy meal compared to the plain meal.

A New Way to Treat Arthritis

A New Way to Treat Arthritis

"Itis" means inflammation, thus any disease with an "itis" at the end, has an inflammatory component. "Autoimmune disorder" essentially means that the body begins to attack itself. As far as arthritis is concerned, rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, and others have been designated as autoimmune, where osteoarthritis has been recognized as general wear and tear, void of an autoimmune component. It is becoming more apparent that all inflammatory arthritis conditions have some sort of immune element related to it, including osteoarthritis.

The immune system reaction is a perception; it perceives what it believes to be a foreign object and attacks it by sending pro-inflammatory components as well as toxic chemicals to destroy. Such "foreign objects" can include foods, proteins, pathogens, and the body's own tissue "perceived" as foreign.

Arthritis conditions are cascading, they might begin small, but continually grow, and here you will see why using the breakdown of cartilage as an example.

Cartilage lines joints, provides protection, lubricates, cushions and preserves joints. Collagen is the protein that is in cartilage and reduces friction from movement and keeps joints healthy and mobile.

Whether due to injury, or general wear and tear, collagen can be exposed through breakdown of the cartilage and the synovial lining. When this happens, the body perceives it as foreign, and then mobilizes what are known as Killer T Cells to attack the "foreign invader." Cytokines are also released which are pro-inflammatory. This creates the cycle of inflammation > more attack > oxidative stress > and accelerated joint breakdown. Over time the cartilage and local tissue is further eroded and destroyed.

Conventional anti-inflammatories help with palliative support (although come with digestive issues, nutrient depletions, and immune challenges.) Immune suppressers such as corticosteroids can provide tremendous relief, although over the long term can lead to weight gain, further immune suppression, gastric ulcers, elevated blood pressure and blood sugar, and an increased risk of bone fractures.

In lab animal studies, when researchers want to induce inflammation or arthritis, they inject collage into the blood stream; the collagen is recognized as foreign, which then incites inflammatory chemicals such as killer T Cells and cytokines to mobilize. Thus when collagen is in the blood it leads to and triggers autoimmune attack.

The exposed collagen is then believed to be the chief cause of the inflammation, leading to the immune cells to mistakenly identify it as an invasive, foreign molecule.

So this leads to the question?

"Is there a way to change the body's response to exposed collagen, thus putting a damper on the auto-immune attack, while providing complementary support for the health of the tissue, cartilage and joints?

Yes!

In steps induced oral tolerance and desensitization of the immune system. Let me explain what this is about.

Back in 2000, the University of Nebraska noticed in a study that people with osteoarthritis, who consumed chicken soup, experienced a decrease in the mobilization of immune cells to the inflammatory sites. It turns out that the collagen from the chicken bones was responsible for this anti-inflammatory effect.

This led to researchers to begin working with what is known as un-denatured collagen, also known as UC-II. Regular collagen that is found in many hair, skin and nail products, is denatured, does not have the same 3-D structure, and does not provide the desensitization of the immune system that the un-denatured collagen does.

UC-II has been found to activate a pathway known as "induced oral tolerance", which trains the immune system to correctly recognize exposed cartilage proteins as its own tissue, not a foreign body, thus this is how it helps regulate the immune system in auto-immune inflammatory disorders, such as arthritis.

UC-II is believed to "work its magic" in the lower end of the small intestine in the Peyer's Patches. Peyer's Patches are forms of immune tissue, which act as training centers for the Killer T Cells. This is believed to influence and desensitize the immune system to develop a natural tolerance to new foods, and proteins (i.e. - collagen) with the end result being that Killer T Cells are not mobilized.

There have been numerous studies on animals and people which have shown benefits of utilizing UC-II including; a significant decrease in number of swollen and painful joints in patients with osteoarthritis and juvenile arthritis, significant enhancement of daily activity and quality of life, a significant reduction in measurable pain in horses, and moderately arthritic dogs are able to place more weight on sore limbs and use limbs more naturally.
