Aromatherapy is the therapeutic use of essential oils. The volatile extracts of the plants are described as essential oils, they are a complex mixture of organic chemicals. By nature all essential oils are antiseptic and anti bacterial some essential oils are having anti viral, hormone regulating, diuretic, anti inflammatory properties. Besides these properties all the essential oils have a certain aroma which affects us at mental and emotional level, that’s what is responsible for psychological benefits of essential oils. When Bubonic plague broke out in Europe, the only protection used was burning of herbs and use of essential oils, that is the need of the hour today. Today we have Aroma oils vaporizers to vaporize essential oils in the sick rooms and common areas.

For prevention and treatment of Corona virus oil of Eucalyptus globulus, will work very well, it is supposed to be anti viral besides being a good decongestant. In Clinical trials it has been observed that antiviral properties can be enhanced in combination of limonene, which is the active ingredient of Lemon oil. The penetration of this combination can be enhanced with the addition of Peppermint oil. At Aromatantra we had developed a blend called PROTECT, which can be used under the nose, chest and throat besides vaporizing the oil in the room or sick room. This oil blend can also be used in steam inhalation in cases of sinus and respiratory congestion.

Besides ingestion of certain essential oils like Tulsi (ocimum sanctum) is very beneficial. Tulsi, as a herb has been used in Ayurveda for more than 5000 years for respiratory disorders, cough and chest congestion. The ingestion of Tulsi oil combined with Frankincense and lemon oil will also help to fight the virus in the lungs and respiratory tracts. At Aromatantra we have developed a blend of all these oils and more, this blend can be used as drops to be added to drinking water, 5 drops in 1/2 ltr. water and to be sipped slowly throughout the day. It will help clear the viral infection in the throat and lungs.

I have heard from many of the clients that they cannot handle smells or perfumes. Now essential oils are not chemical based perfumes to irritate the nose and lungs of the people, instead they are helpful when inhaled in small doses. In fact essential oil of Peppermint is supposed to be the best treatment for respiratory disorders like asthma and bronchitis.

Besides aforesaid essential oils, the essential oils can be used for lymphatic clearing massage. Most of the diseases in the body are the result of congested or blocked lymph nodes. Basically our lymphatic system –
* Removes excess fluid and waste products from the interstitial spaces between the cells.
* It aids the immune system in removing and destroying waste, debris, dead blood cells, pathogens, toxins, and cancer cells.
*It absorbs fats and fat-soluble vitamins from the digestive system and delivers these nutrients to the cells of the body where they are used by the cells.
In the thoracic cavity, these nodes occur between the lungs and along the windpipe and bronchi, and receive lymph from this area and from the internal wall of the thorax.

There are many health problems that may result from congested and stagnant lymph drainage. Here is partial list of conditions that may improve with increased lymph flow:

Breast Cancer
Chronic Fatigue
Prostate Enlargement
Ringing in Ears
Sagging chin
Sinus problems
Stomach troubles
Sluggishness Obesity
Ovarian & Uterine Cysts
Painful & enlarged breasts
Congested Lungs
Congestive Heart Failure
Crows Feet
Dizziness – Vertigo
Enlargement of Heart
Excessive tiredness
Frequent Colds & Flu
Toxin Accumulation Headaches
IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome)
Kidney problems
Memory Loss – brain fog
Neck & shoulder stiffness
Skin disorders
Eye diseases & poor vision

There are certain oils which are very helpful in moving lymph like Juniper berry oil which is the best diuretic essential oil, besides being a good bactericidal and antiseptic. Besides the oils of Rosemary stimulates circulation and moves the lymph. Grape fruit oil is also very effective in moving fluids in the body besides Black pepper and Ginger are oil are also good in increasing circulation. A blend of these oils can be used in a moisturizing base oil mix for self massage focusing on the lymphatic nodes especially the inguinal and axillary lymph nodes. If you want to fight Corona virus it is advisable to add Eucalyptus oil to the blend and massage the chest towards the axillary nodes in the under arm area.
I truly believe essential oils are the way to go during this tough time of Corona virus when nothing else is working, they safe, easy to use with no known side effect.

Low Cost Cure and Prevention of Cancer with APRICOT KERNELS


Apricot kernels (seeds) are the source for a natural substance that can kill cancer cells without destroying the cancer victim’s health and wealth?

This essential ingredient has been called laetrile or vitamin B 17.

What is B17, or Laetrile Anyway?

In 1952, a biochemist named Dr. Ernst Krebb, Jr. in San Francisco decided that cancer was a metabolic reaction to a poor diet, and a missing nutrient from modern man’s diet could be the key to overcoming cancer. Vitamin B17 appears in abundance in untamed nature. Because B17 is bitter to the taste, in man’s attempt to improve tastes and flavors for his own pleasure, he has eliminated bitter substances like B17 by selection and cross-breeding. His research led to a compound found in over 1200 edible plants throughout nature. That compound is amagdylin.
Amagdylin is a nitriloside. Nitrilosides are difficult to categorize since they are in foods but not foods themselves. As a nitriloside, amagdylin resembled the B complex structures.  Dr. Krebb called it B17 since by that time 16 types of B vitamins had been isolated. Amagdylin is found with the highest concentration and necessary enzymes in apricot seed kernels. The hard seeds need to be broken to get into the soft kernels. No person eating a high nitriloside (Vitamin B 17) in diet (Hunzas, Eskimos, Hopi Indians) or voluntarily taking a high intake of nitriloside containing foods has ever developed cancer. Diseases caused by deficiency of Vitamins scurvy (Vitamin C) and pellagra (Vitamin B3 Niacin) have been great mysteries to conventional medicine long after the cure for the disease was well documented. Cancer appears to be a similar mystery. There was no incidence of cancer with them at all, ever. And they had long, healthy life spans. Laetrile was created by simply extracting amagdylin from the soft apricot kernels, purifying it and putting it into a concentrated form.

Dr. Krebb injected himself with laetrile to ensure there would be no toxic side effects. He conducted further lab animal and culture experiments to conclude that laetrile would be effective in the treatment of cancer. The FDA standard for drug safety is known as LD 50, LD stands for lethal dose, and the 50 is the percentage threshold of lab animals poisoned to death by the drug tested. As long as the percentage killed is under 50%, FDA will approve it!

Since laetrile is derived directly from a food substance in nature and not chemically developed in a laboratory, it is impossible to patent. And of course it’s not toxic. In other words, just as with all natural healing substances, Big Pharma and the AMA can’t make a fortune from the substance and from the remedies for the long term side effects. There have been several testimonies from cancer victims who cured themselves by chewing large quantities of the apricot seeds alone.


So How Does It Work?

Amagdylin contains four substances. Two are glucose; one is benzaldehyde, and one is cyanide. Yes, cyanide and benzaldehyde are poisons if they are released or freed as pure molecules and not bound within other molecular formations. Many foods containing cyanide are safe because the cyanide remains bound and locked as part of another molecule and therefore cannot cause harm.

There is even an enzyme in normal cells to catch any free cyanide molecules and to render them harmless by combining them with sulfur. That enzyme is rhodanese, which catalyzes the reaction and binds any free cyanide to sulfur. By binding the cyanide to sulfur, it is converted to a cyanate which is a neutral substance. Then it is easily passed through the urine with no harm to the normal cells.

But cancer cells are not normal. They contain an enzyme that other cells do not share, beta-glucosidase. This enzyme, virtually exclusive to cancer cells, is considered the “unlocking enzyme” for amagdylin molecules. It releases both the benzaldyhide and the cyanide, creating a toxic synergy beyond their uncombined sum. This is what the cancer cell’s beta-glucosidase enzyme does to self destruct cancer cells.

Amagdylin or laetrile in conjunction with the protective enzymes in healthy cells and the unlocking enzymes in cancer cells is thus able to destroy cancer cells without jeopardizing healthy cells. Chemotherapy, on the other hand, kills a lot of other cells and diminishes one’s immune system while killing an undetermined amount of cancer cells.

Those cancer cells tend to return elsewhere because the patient’s general health was reduced from the pervasive chemo toxins. The cancer industry has declared the bench mark for curing cancer as being cancer free for 5 years. It’s estimated that of those who undergo the AMA big three for curing cancer, surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy, no more than 3% make the 5 year cancer free mark. Besides the treatments’ debilitating effects, they are much more expensive!

But for someone with cancer, it takes a considerable amount of daily B17 consumption to enable the amagdylin to reach the cancer cells with beta-glucosidase. That’s because some of the amagdylin molecules will be neutralized by the normal cells containing rhodanese.

Many practitioners who use laetrile have an 85% cure rate among cancer victims who did not undergo much of the standard cut, burn, and poison that is main-stream – while the cure rate for those who come to laetrile therapy as a last resort after all that conventional medicine could only have a 15% recovery rate. There is a clinic in Mexico that claims a 100 percent cure rate!






There are many success stories from people using just laetrile or apricot pit kernels. The usual recommendation for prevention is around 5 to 7 over the course of a day. For actual cancer cases use 2 to 3 times that. Some say one kernel for every 10 lbs of body weight. For maintenance after a cure, go back to 5 to 7 per day.

There are reports of better results in persons trying Apricot Kernels or laetrile therapy as the first recourse for treatment of cancer since chemotherapy and radiation damages immune system.

Some laetrile therapists have patients use vitamin B15 tablets and digestive enzymes such as papaya’s papain and pineapple’s bromalene. Too many apricot pit kernels can create nausea or dizziness. There are no recorded deaths or disabilities from the apricot seeds or laetrile, however. Although some success has been recorded with patients undergoing conventional therapy and using laetrile, it’s not recommended.

Please do your own research also, there are many practitioners and writers who recommend you combine other alternative cancer therapies while taking laetrile or using the apricot pits – especially if you go for it alone at home A fundamental lifestyle – (physical, nutriotional , mental and emotional) change has to be a part of any permanent cancer cure.

Health Management with Lymph Draiange


Our circulatory system processes an average of 20 litres of blood per day through capillary filtration which removes plasma while leaving the blood cells. Roughly 17 litres of the filtered plasma get reabsorbed directly into the blood vessels, while the remaining 3 litres are left behind in the interstitial fluid. Which is Lymph, it is similar to blood plasma but contains lymphocytes and other white blood cells. It also contains waste products and debris of cells together with bacteria and proteins.
Our lymphatic system is unique, it is a one-way system that returns lymph fluid via vessels to the cardiovascular system for eventual elimination of toxic byproducts by end organs, such as the kidney, liver, colon, skin, and lungs.
It is an integral part of the Cardiovascular system of our body, comprising a network of lymphatic vessels that carry a clear fluid called lymph, directionally towards the heart. THE LYMPHATIC SYSTEM consists –
(1) of complex capillary networks which collect the lymph in the various organs and tissues;
(2) of an elaborate system of collecting vessels which conduct the lymph from the capillaries to the large veins of the neck at the junction of the internal jugular and sub clavian veins, where the lymph is poured into the blood stream; and
(3) lymph glands or nodes which are interspaced in the pathways of the collecting vessels filtering the lymph as it passes through them. Lymph nodes have the concentration of lymphocytes, which are responsible for our immune system.
While in our body, blood is circulated by the pumping action of our heart, lymph moves in the body due to muscles suction. People with sedentary life styles have more health problems due to sluggish circulation of lymph or lymph blockages.
Another reason for lymphatic blockages is emotional blockages. Major lymphatic nodes in our body are in our groin area called inguinal nodes. Which is very close to our Swadhisthan (Sacral/Sexual) Chakra, this chakra is responsible for our emotional balance and sexuality. When we experience emotional stress or emotional blockages they affect the energy in this area causing blockages of these lymph nodes. The blockages of inguinal nodes disturbs the functioning of our organs and glands in that area and may lead to-Fluid retention (edema), Cellulite, Skin Problems, Lower back pain, disturbed menstrual cycle, problems of ovaries, uterus, fertility etc.
Other major lymphatic nodes are in our under arms called axillary nodes (20 to 30 in number) drain lymph from the lateral quadrants of the breast, the superficial lymph vessels from the walls of the chest and the abdomen above the level of the navel, and the vessels from the upper parts of the body. Blockage of these lymph nodes may lead to problems of breast, like breast pain, fibrocystic breast conditions, upper back, neck and shoulder pain etc.
Besides aforesaid conditions Lymphedema, fibromyalgia, varicose veins etc are other common conditions arising out of lymphatic blockages.
These conditions can easily be corrected with Manual Lymphatic Drainage using Aromatherapy massage oils. At / you can get more information about this modality.

Which is your dominant breathing nostril

Most of us do not breathe consciously. it happens automatically. your breathing pattern represents your personality type, as one of my Guru’s used to say that entire world population can be divided into two categories, one dominant in right nostril and another dominant in the left. To check your breathing nostril, block one and observe your breath, then block the other one and observe again. You’ll find one is easy to breathe from that’s the active nostril at that point. According to Swar yoga, your breathing nostrils alternate every 45 minutes, but its not a perfect cycle and some people breathe more from left or right that’s your dominant nostril.

Your left nostril is associated with the energy of moon, connects with the right brain, which is creative. However moon energy affects your Swadhisthan or Sacral Chakra, which besides our sexuality regulates our emotional balance and water element. Hence the people dominant in their left nostril are sensual, creative but more emotional by nature, they may also be prone to depressions, low blood pressure, lower back discomfort, water retention etc.

Our right nostril is associated with the energy of Sun, so the people who are right nostrils dominant connect with the left brain more, they are action oriented. Sun energy activates their Solar plexus or Manipura chakra. These right nostril dominant people are ambitious in life, they are go getters, chasing success in the form of money, power or authority. And these are prone to heated liver resulting in higher body temperature, imbalanced digestion,acid reflux, high cholestrol, hypertension (high BP), diabetes, frequent headaches and migraines.

Thats why ancient yogic wisdom stresses so much on correct breathing, just by regulating your breath you can regulate a lot of health issues. Simple alternate nostrils breathing done every morning evening can help you regulate your energy level, your sleeping pattern, blood pressure, digestion headache migraines and so many other health issues.


We are the sum total of our thought pattern, which reflects as our attitude towards life and people.
What we hold inside, affects our vibrations and our vibrations affect our health, relationships as well as career.
Healthy human beings energy has been measured between 62 to 74 Mega Hertz, this energy is affected by our emotions and  thought process; as per the law of attraction, what we throw around comes back to us. Feelings of anger, resentment bring our vibrations down, cause toxicity affecting us physical, physiological and mental level. Once below 58 Mega hertz we start inviting disease in the physical body.On the other hand feelings of Joy, ecstasy and enthusiasm raise our vibrations substantially.

Among the healing tools I use,  my favourite is AROMATHERAPY oils, since their vibrations range is from 30 to 360 MHZ thats why they have the ability to heal us at Physical, Physiological, Psychological and subtle level. I was surprised when somebody told me yesterday that she doesn’t believe in Aromatherapy but was willing to try Chakra healing. Fact is that I use essential oils (basis of aromatherapy) for Chakra healing along with lymphatic drainage, emotional release work and crystals. In the month of April while I was doing an expo in New Jersey USA, I received the best feed back on Chakra oils when a fellow exhibitor shared that she bought Chakra oils 3 years back and used for regulating her thyroid instead of Synthroid, prescribed to her and with in six months, to the surprise of her doctor, her thyroid was regulated completely without any medication. I have so many amazing healing feed backs and stories to share.
