Water Holds Memory

Ancient knowledge confirmed by modern science

Copper, the ideal water storage. Note it must be well cleaned regularly

Most of us tend to think as water as a convenience and something to nourish our bodies. In fact we can’t live more than about three days without water which makes it a necessity for life.

Within ancient yogic and Hindu understanding, water was highly respected and even venerated because there was the knowledge that our bodies were approximately 70% water. So while water had all its practical applications, the perception of water was that as an entity it has memory.

Memory of water is subtle and yet powerful, if you mistreat the water it will not nurture and support life.

Ayurveda and Cancer

A holistic view

By Dr. Satish Kulkarni

Cancer is not a single specific disease according to ayurved. It is a group of chronic disorders related to long term unattended disturbance affecting various dhatu (body tissues) and dosha (basic body constituents). Cancer could manifest as a tumor or as a non healing ulcer. The ayurvedic synonym for tumour is arbuda or granthi and that for a non healing ulcer is dushta vrana.

Along with these manifestations, we can see additional symptoms such as weight loss, weakness, chronic fever and a few other disturbances in dhatu which ayurved describes as thetiryak gati of dosha.

Do you want to live and be happy?

Were it not for our technology, the knowledge of the world at War and all the atrocities that go on would be a distant rumour that would have taken months to circle the globe. But last week when a naive and excited young girl went on a date with a Muslim man she thought charming and safe, images of her dismembered corpse appeared in the world media the next day.
