Listen to the audio: Check this out on Chirbit Q. I have tonsillitis, there is pus formation in my throat. Which technique will help me? Dr. J: I think in the beginning you should have an Allopathy doctor to give you a check-up and simple measures may help like gargling with salt water or even sometimes medicine, but it should be just for a few days. Smt. H: If there is pus formation, then naturally there is a strong infection and that has to be killed by a proper strong medicine, so Allopathy in the beginning. But then come to right lifestyle, as we say in yoga, gargling, Jalneti, use of hot water bag on the throat, drinking little warm water after eating food, to help wash the throat, if it is dry then keeping lozenges in the mouth as a lubricant, so in all such ways tonsillitis would go away. '-Itis' means inflammation which is due to infection. When the infection goes, the inflammation goes. In the future, make sure you do some friction on the throat region and around the ears with the hands, to keep the region warm. This will help make you aware at the beginning of such conditions and you can take precautions. Ayurveda gives some remedies such as boiling ginger or Holy Basil (Tulsi) in water and drinking it, that works wonders. Q. How long after a meal should we drink water?

Listen to the Audio: Check this out on Chirbit "Let's understand our role in any situation, how we can help ourselves maintain a balanced state of mind. While we perform our work, others too perform their own work. Everything has its own place, everything has its own need, that’s why it's there. So we should carry on. And carry on happily, carry on with joy, with enthusiasm. Be very creative, find out (for yourself) in the same very situation, what can you do, so that you may still enjoy it more and so on. Maintaining a balanced state of mind should be our primary goal, that no matter what happens, I should not lose my balance. This means that I have to practice self-discipline; like a watchman who does not allow bad elements to enter, similarly I have to watch myself and not allow any thoughts that may make me lose my balance. But for that, I have to attend to many areas.

Listen to the audio: Check this out on Chirbit Q. During illness, the mind tends to lose stability and tends towards negativity. How can this be avoided? Dr. J: Well, remember the name of God as often as you can, try to recollect certain good sentiments. Little, little tips like that can help. Smt. H: Remember that this illness is also temporary, this shall also pass and after every illness, body and mind become stronger. I have seen that even children, after an illness, look more grown-up. Illness doesn’t harm, to come out of it, we develop more strength. So take illness positively, not negatively; the mind should not get disturbed. Q. Why is it that sacrifice and control is only for the woman; like Sati, divorce, woman touching man’s feet, woman going to husband’s house after marriage? Man can marry several times, is it because man is physically stronger and generally financially strong?

Listen to the Audio: Check this out on Chirbit “When we talk of difficulties, understand that life is nothing but a struggle. Difficulties come at every level… at the physical level, we may have a fall or fracture, at the mental level, we may lack understanding and clarity of what we are required to do. It is very important to be clear of what we should do and why. The purpose should be understood. We should keep aside some time to bring in this understanding. Bring in clarity on the plan and the means to execute the plan. Thinking and action should be parallel to each other. We cannot only think all the time and do no work, or work without thinking; both have to done simultaneously. There is a story of devils who came together for a meeting to discuss how to make the smart humans weak. Brainstorming lead to suggestions to incorporating anger, lust, etc in humans but these suggestions were shot down. Finally they decided to add “thinking” as a weakness for humans which would lead to inaction. The point is, there is no end to thinking.

Listen to the Audio: Check this out on Chirbit “Today’s topic is Positive Thinking/Rituals. There are many negative rituals which are harmful and in the process positive rituals are also lost. In the old days the tradition of Sati was there where if the husband died, the wife also had to die. Her hair would be removed, her bangles broken, etc. These rituals were filled with violence and negativity. A person’s perspective of another would change with a change in the situation. There were many such wrong rituals such as, if a lady having her period touched someone, it was considered bad, if a Shudra (untouchable) touched a Brahmin (higher caste) by mistake, the Brahmin would take a bath. These rituals we will not be able to accept. However, if there are positive rituals by which we gain mental peace and faith, by which fear, tension and anxiety are removed, then they are necessary for us. These are small things which do not take up much of our time. However there should not be rigidity in rituals. If you can’t do some of the externalized rituals such as going to the temple or Masjid, etc. at least you can close your eyes and experience the same peace as you feel there.

Check this out on Chirbit Q. Why does the human mind tend towards negative thoughts more than positive thoughts? Dr. J: The teachings from childhood are responsible for this. Smt. H: We are made in such a way, our structure is such that our mind keeps running here and there. From childhood, if we do not learn to train our mind to think positively, it will keep holding on to negative thoughts. Training the mind is necessary. Q. Does positive attitude lead to positive happenings in life?
