Yakrit Plihantak Churna - Wonderful Herbal Remedy For All Liver Disorders

liver, wonderful, herbal remedy for all liver disorders

Liver is a large, meaty organ that sits on the right side of the belly. It is a beautiful half moon shaped organ and in Ayurveda it is compared to Lord Shiv who has half-moon over his head.

An interesting statement in Yajurveda Reveals, "Yatha pinde tatha brahmande, yatha brahmande tatha pinde".

That is ---As is the human body, so is the Cosmic body (Universe), as is the cosmic body so is the human body"----- OUR HUMAN BODY IS MINI COSMOS

So keeping these statements valid--we can say with strong conviction that liver is one organ that is so much like Shiva in Universe, As Shiva consumed toxic Poison to save the Deva and Universe, It is believed that when Lord Shiva consumed Halahala, the toxic poison, his body temperature started rising. Because the moon is cold in its demeanor, Lord Shiva placed the moon on his head to lower his body temperature.

In the similar manner we have liver --moon shaped organ in our body that is important sit of PITTA--- Pitta is primarily composed of the fire and water elements. It is the source of all heat in the body. Not surprisingly, the liver and the gallbladder are both considered important sites of pitta.

Liver is one important organ that works day in and day out to keep our body healthy, Everyone believes that Heart is what keep our clock ticking but the fact remains that we can keep human body alive today on ventilators but if liver -kidney fail, everything fails you.

As in Hindu literature --- The crescent moon is shown on the side of the Lord's head as an ornament. The waxing and waning phenomenon of the moon symbolizes the time cycle through which creation evolves from the beginning to the end.

Similarly Liver is the Shiva inside human body that symbolizes the time cycle inside---metabolism going inside, it hold the complete mechanism inside, the enzymes produced and the nutrition passed on to all the cells of body , be it heart or brain. They all rely on Liver for all nourishment sent to them.

These days we see that people are relying too much on packed food and artificial flavors. The custom of consuming junk food is increasing day by day and making our future sad and diseased especially our future generations.

Fresh fruit and juices have been replaced by preservative diet and color, young generation rely too much on colorful attractive packing of junk food and snacks. The INSTANT culture--of Maggi and similar tastes are ruling the campus of universities all over.

Be it any occasion people prefer to eat out --- they enjoy special time with family like birthday party, marriage anniversary, etc. eating JUNK. They easily become used to taking soft drinks, wafers, chips, noodles, burgers, pizza, french-fries, Chinese dishes, and other varieties of fast food available in the market. But this JUNK is harmful and is a slow poison that we are giving to our body.

If we look at the dictionary meaning of JUNK it means old and discarded stuff but people fail to realize that we are polluting the beautiful gift of GOD, our BODY with waste and unwanted items.

When these waste or toxic items are bombarded on our LIVER----THIS humble organ takes all the chemical reaction on itself and tries to squeeze out the nutrient value even from waste.

But Alas---slowly the saturation point of LIVER is reached and it is unable to feed itself on toxic stuff and starts giving signs of---IT IS ENOUGH, I CAN"T take it more.

That is the stage when----our Ultrasound reports come out with diagnosis like-- Fatty liver, Liver cirrhosis, NASH, Jaundice and the list seems endless with interesting titles of disease and google is flooded with information about them.

But the cause is simple---We need to just water the Moon shaped organ with cooling stuff---as its original nature is cooling.

We need to give the balanced diet of coconut water, fresh fruits, salads, green leaves and right herbs like Punarnava, Bhrigraj, Gokshru, Ghrit kumari, Kasni, Kalmegh.
