Copper (Tamba) Vessel Health Benefits

Water is the most essential element to sustain life on this planet. 70 per cent of human body is made up of water. You may have not known this but in ancient times, our ancestors and even our grandmothers followed the practice of storing water in containers made of copper. Their aim was probably to safeguard drinking water but there’s more to the story. In today’s modern world where we have UV filters and RO purifiers to purify water, the storage of water in metal containers may sound old-fashioned and not needed.

However, this age-old practice referenced in ancient texts of Ayurveda is now supported by several scientific studies.

Storing water in a copper vessel creates a natural purification process. It can kill all the microorganisms, molds, fungi, algae and bacteria, present in the water that could be harmful to the body and make the water perfectly fit for drinking. In addition, water stored in a copper vessel, preferably overnight or at least for four hours, acquires a certain quality from the copper. Copper is an essential trace mineral that is vital to human health. It has antimicrobial, antioxidant, anti-carcinogenic and anti-inflammatory properties. It also helps neutralize toxins.

Unlike some nutritional elements, the body cannot synthesize copper, so you need to get it from dietary sources. The best dietary sources of copper include seafood, organ meats, whole grains, lentils, nuts, seeds, chocolate, cereals, potatoes, peas and some dark green leafy vegetables. Drinking 2 to 3 glasses of water that has been stored in a copper vessel is another easy way to supply your body with enough copper.

According to Ayurveda, drinking copper-enriched water first thing in the morning on an empty stomach helps balance all three doshas (Kapha, Vata and Pitta). This also ensures proper functioning of different organs and several metabolic processes. In addition to that, here are 12 reasons why drinking water from a copper vessel is beneficial for you:

1. Helps the digestive system perform better

Copper has properties that help kill harmful bacteria and reduce inflammation within the stomach, making it a great remedy for ulcers, indigestion and infections. Copper also helps cleanse and detox your stomach, regulates the working of your liver and kidneys, and proper elimination of waste and ensures the absorption of nutrients from food.

“When water is stored in a copper container, the mineral gets leached into it. This copper leached in the water helps in breaking down of food particles in our and improves our digestion,” suggests Bangalore-based Nutritionist, Dr Anju Sood.

2.Aids weight loss

To lose weight quicker, try drinking water stored in a copper vessel regularly. Apart from fine tuning your digestive system to perform better, copper also helps your body break down fat and eliminates it more efficiently, thereby, helping your body keep only what it will use and throw out the rest.

3. Helps heal wounds faster

Known for its immense anti-bacterial, anti-viral and anti-inflammatory properties, copper is a great tool for healing wounds quickly. Apart from that, copper is also known to strengthen your immune system and aid in the production of new cells. But its healing properties don’t cease with helping the body externally; copper is also known to help wounds heal within the body, especially in the stomach

4.Slows down ageing

If you are worried about the appearance of fine lines on your face, copper is your natural remedy. Packed with very strong anti-oxidant and cell forming properties, copper fights off free radicals, one of the main reasons for the formation of fine lines.

5.Helps maintain heart health and beats hypertension

Heart disease is one of the most common ailments and copper helps minimize your risk of developing the disease. According to the American Cancer Society, copper has been found to help regulate blood pressure, heart rate and lower one’s bad cholesterol and triglyceride levels

6.Mitigates the risk of cancer

Another disease that is quickly becoming extremely common, cancer, can be debilitating for both the patient and their family. How does copper help? Well, copper has very strong antioxidant properties that helps fight off free radicals and negate their ill effects – one of the main reasons for the development of cancer

7.Protects you from infections

Copper is known to be oligodynamic in nature (the sterilizing effect of metals on bacteria), and can destroy bacteria very effectively. It is especially effective against E.coli and S.aureus, two bacteria that are commonly found in our environment and known to cause severe illnesses in the human body

8.Regulates the working of the thyroid gland

Health experts believethat one commonality among people with thyroid diseases is that they usually have low levels of copper in their body. While this is most commonly seen in people with hyperthyroidism (excessive thyroid hormone), those with hypothyroidism (low levels of thyroid hormone) may also suffer from this deficiency

9.Beats arthritis and inflamed joints

Copper has very potent anti-inflammatory properties. This asset is especially great to relieve aches and pains caused due to inflamed joints – like in the case of arthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Apart from that, copper also has bone and immune system strengthening properties, making it the perfect remedy for arthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.

10.Boosts skin health and melanin production

Copper is the main component in the production of melanin (a pigment that mitigates the color of your eyes, hair and skin) in our bodies. Apart from that copper also aids in the production of new cells that help replenish the top most layers of your skin leaving you with smooth and supple skin.

11.Beats anemia

Iron in our body plays a key role in fighting anemia and copper aids the absorption of iron. If you are suffering from anemia, eating iron rich foods and drinking copper-infused water will help your body’s entire process of absorbing and using the iron.

The most amazing fact about copper is that it is required in most processes that occur in our body. Right from cell formation to aiding in the absorption of iron, copper is an essential mineral for the functioning of your body.

Methi dana or Fenugreek Seeds for Diabetes

Fenugreek is an aromatic plant that has many uses, fenugreek is a key ingredient of Indian recipes and ayurvedic medicines.

How does it affect diabetes?

Fenugreek seeds (trigonella foenum graecum) are high in soluble fibre, which helps lower blood sugar levels by slowing down digestion and absorption of carbohydrates. This suggests they may be effective in treating people with diabetes.

Multiple studies have been carried out to investigate the potential anti-diabetic benefits of fenugreek.

Of these, several clinical trials showed that fenugreek seeds can improve most metabolic symptoms associated with both type 1 and type 2 diabetes in humans by lowering blood glucose levels and improving glucose tolerance.

In one study, researchers in India found that adding 100 grams of defatted fenugreek seed powder to the daily diet of patients with insulin-dependent (type 1) diabetes significantly reduced their gasting blood glucose levels improved glucose tolerance and also lowered total cholesterol, LDL or ‘bad’ cholesterol and triglycerides.

In another controlled trial, incorporating 15 grams of powdered fenugreek seed into a meal eaten by people with type 2 diabetes reduced the rise in post-meal blood glucose, while a separate study found that taking 2.5 grams of fenugreek twice a day for three months lowered blood sugar levels in people with mild, but not severe, type 2 diabetes.

Also fenugreek seeds are a rich source of vitamin and minerals and antioxidants, which help protect the body’s cells from damage caused by unstable molecules known as free radicals.

For centuries they have been (and are still) used by nursing mothers to help stimulate the production of breast milk during pregnancy and following childbirth. Due to their powerful antiviral properties, they are also commonly used as an herbal remedy for colds and sore throats.

How to take or start with?

1.Soak 1 tbsp of methi seeds in half cup water overnight and drink this water in morning. You can chew a few seeds too and use the rest in cooking meals. Don’t keep it for long.

2. Include methi seeds in your everyday cooking.

3. Use methi leaves to prepare saag , sabzi curry .

Please note the following precautions..

Before using fenugreek to treat your diabetes, consult your GP and diabetes healthcare team to ensure it is safe. As with other blood sugar-reducing herbs, there is the risk that fenugreek may cause your blood sugars to go too low ( hypoglycemia) when taken alongside prescribed diabetes drugs.

As a result, the dose of your anti-diabetic medication might need to be changed.

GERD GASTROINTESTINAL REFLUX DISORDER

I have suffered the GERD problem for a year and nothing could help much. The doctors had advised and prescribed Asthama medicines and inhaler pump since the situation was out of control.

For a year almost every night, soon after lying down, I had a terrible cough attack and it did not go away unless I vomited everything I had in dinner.

I took a few medicines but never took the asthama medicines. And kept searching for a cure in ayurveda and homeopathy.

Ayurveda remedies like eating as per vata, kapha or pitta helped and also fasting and eating early and having no water after a meal helped a lot.

But the problem did not go away completely and after my research on homeopathy I found the medicine that suited me completely and I was cured of GERD.

The name of the homeopathic medicine I will not put here, but if you’re interested to know, you can comment below or send me a personal message.
