    Paatti / Kai Vaidhyam

    Acne-Grated cucumber applied over the face ,eyes and neck for fifteen minutes are very much beneficial for acne and blackheads.

    Asthma-Take a teaspoon of fresh ginger juice mixed with a cup of fenugreek decoction and honey to taste. This mixture acts as an excellent treatment of asthma.
    Or
    if you don’t like this you can take a cup of hot coffee.

    Backache- Garlic is the most important home remedy for backache. Oil prepared form garlic and rubbed on the back will give a good result in backache.
    Or
    if you can you can hear the dusk of wheat in a kadai and put it in a cloth and ask somebody to give you ‘othadam’ by that. That is ask them to tie the cloth; keep it on the back where you have more pain in equal intervals. This will give you a good relief.
    Or
    otherwise use a hot water bag and lay down on the bed and keep the bag on your back.

    Bad Breath-Wash your mouth with lime juice mixed with water. This will prevent bad breath.

    Bleeding external-Apply ice cube.

    Boils-Betel leaves are a valuable remedy for boils. Just show a leaf on flame and apply a coate of castor oil on that. Just place the leaf on the affected area.

    Burns-Add coconut oil to the paste of fresh gel of ‘aloe vera’ (In Tamil we used to say ‘Kattrazhi’) blended with a pinch of turmeric Powder and apply.

    Gas- Bake ‘vasambu’ on the flame and cover it with a big vessel. Remove and powder it. It looks like ‘black powder/kari powder’ . Have ½ spoon of it with sugar and drink with warm water. ‘Gas problem pooya poochu’ But be careful while baking the vasambu on the flame. It must become red hot after that only you can remove it from the flame. If is ‘raw’ you cannot powder it and also it will give Sevier stomach pain.

    Gums (bleeding)-Massage the gums lightly with coconut oil.
    Squeeze a half lemon into a cup of water and drink.

    Headache -Dilute a paste of ginger powder (half teaspoon) with water & apply to the Forehead. You may feel burning sensation but it's not harmful.

    Lack of Sleep -Gently massage the soles of the feet with sesame oil. Rub oil into the scalp.

    Or
    Drink a cup of piping hot cow milk with rock candy or honey.
    Or
    Keep your feet in a tub filled with warm water and salt. It will give you freshness. Even you can try this when your legs are paining.

    Swelling-Drink barley water


    Toothache-Apply 3 drops of clove oil to the affected teeth.

    Hi Abha,
    Thank you very much.

    Hi Rekha,

    Yes it is a 'hard candy' . In Tamil we call it as 'kalkandu' in Hindi 'Misry'.

    Hi Krishnamma

    I have a boy who is 3 months old. I gave him Sutta Vasambu podi in milk. I think it went beyond a pinch of powder. What will happen?? Is it poisonous or has severe side effects?? I am afraid... Can you reply and ease my anxiety???

    A very useful thread Krishnamma, i've been searching for one such thread...

    I am a expecting mom and would like to know what are the Kashayams that are given to Pregnant ladies in the third trimester to ease labour and discomforts during delivery. Would be great and thankful if you can give the methods for preparing them. My patti had been telling about Jeera kashayam and fenugreek (Vendaya) kashayam, But i heard there are other varieties of kashayams that ease labour..

    Sri
