Eat the millet – Or bite the bullet
40 to 50 years ago Pancharathna Siridhanya (precious millets) such as Foxtail, Barnyard, Kodo, Brown top and Little millet were commonly consumed. These have now been replaced predominantly by grains such as rice and wheat.
When these millets were commonly consumed, diseases such as diabetes, high blood pressure, digestive problems, cancer, etc., were virtually unheard of. Off late these diseases have become common, even amongst the young.
When the fiber content in rice & wheat is compared with that of millets, in 100 grams of rice and wheat the fiber contained is 0.2 & 1.2 grams respectively, while 100 grams of pancharathna siridhanya, manually processed using traditional methods, contain 8 to 12.5 grams of fiber.
Higher fiber content will result in slower release of glucose into the blood stream. As a result of which diseases such as blood pressure, arthritis, diabetes, and other cardiovascular diseases will be cured. But for this to happen, bakery products, sugar, rice, wheat and meat should not be consumed.
To harvest 1 kg of rice 8,000 liters of water and to harvest wheat 9,000 liters of water is required. To produce1 kg of sugar 28,000 liters of water is required. By the time 1 kg of meat is produced, at least 50,000 liters of water will be consumed.
Also huge quantities of pesticides and fertilizers are being used, subjecting the earth to torture. Foods produced in this manner bring disease and pain to the human body.
Whereas to grow 1 kg of Pancharathna Siridhanaya, 300 liters of water is required and harvesting the same does not require pesticides or fertilizers.
These Pancharathna Siridhanya have a place in history for over 1,000 years in India, China, Iraq, Iran, Japan, Italy, Turkey, South Africa, Ethiopia, Greece, etc.,
The special properties contained in Pancharathna Siridhanya:
Arka – Kodo Millet: This is “Adi beeja” (Original seed) named after the Sun. Light red color in appearance, this millet plays a major role in cleansing the blood. When diagnosed with diseases like Dengue, Malaria, chronic cold and fever this is a suitable food to help cure the same. It helps in regenerating the cells in the bone marrow also.
Navane – Foxtail Millet: Light yellow color in appearance, apart from rejuvenating the nervous and vascular systems, it helps in curing epilepsy. During pregnancy women should consume this millet. Subsequently if the newborn gets fever, it will not develop into epilepsy. Great sages and poets have praised this phenomenal property of the Foxtail millet. Note: Women in post pregnancy stage should not consume Foxtail millet for a period of one year after delivery.
Saame – Little Millet: Dull white color in appearance, this is a complete solution for issues related to reproductive systems. While it repairs ovary related issues in women, it improves the reproductive strengths in men.
Oodalu – Barnyard Millet: White color in appearance, its fiber helps in increasing the efficiency of ductless glands such as pancreas, thyroid etc., and also helps in cleansing of liver & kidney. It is the appropriate food for curing liver related diseases. For example, Jaundice.
Korle – Browntop Millet: Light greenish/greyish color in appearance, it helps in improving the efficiency of the digestive system and in cleansing the body from metabolic waste. As early as the 18th century, this millet was consumed widely in the Americas.
A few diseases, concerns, cures, solutions and tips:
Diabetes has reached 25% of the population in India. An increase of about 3% in any disease should be a cause for great concern.
Diabetes and High blood pressure can be completely cured by consuming these Pancharathna Siridhanya, subject to completely stopping consumption of rice, wheat, bakery products, meat and sugar. Also since impurities in the body go out through sweat, walking for one and a half hour is essential every day. This will cleanse the 5-6 liters of blood contained in the human body.
Although 75% of the earth’s surface consists of water, only 3% of the same is available for drinking purpose. Water supplied to urban areas is treated with chlorine.
A good method to purify and drink water is to store it in a copper vessel, with 2 drumstick seeds for 8-10 hours. Copper kills micro organisms. The drumstick seeds will absorb these dead organisms. Remove these seeds and drink the water. Clean the copper vessel with tamarind water periodically. Drinking water from plastic containers is dangerous to health
Peanut shell (light pink color) reduces aging, swelling in body and prevents cancer. The peanut should be consumed along with its pink shell which contains resveratrol.
Seven juices into seven days = 49 days in a row, will keep away any infection that can affect you – for years – including scary ones such as H1N1, Bird flu etc., to common cold, fever and so on.Take one kind of leaf at a time, crush a few tender ones, boil for a minute or so and drink up the juice. Once a day for seven days in a row for each leaf. They really do not have any strong taste or oder, making it easy to drink up.
The names are in Kannada language
-Honge-special extra property is to get alcohol craving out of the human body
-Bilpatre-please make an exception of the seven day rule for people with serious diabetic condition and let them have it for 21 days continuously
-Gareke hullu (natural grass)
Triglyceride – Ref Dr. Robert Lustig, Pediatric Endocrinologist, University of California, Sugar the bitter truth – YouTube.
Triglyceride level is the more serious issue behind Diabetes, regardless of Type 1 or Type 2.
Also Dr. Khadar, Phd Steroids, has shown that differentiating between Type 1 and 2 is a myth about 15 years ago itself. A few tender leaves of Bilpatre juice ( we use it during worshiping Lord Shiva on Shivaratri ) will have a great positive impact on the pancreas.
What is so special about these leaves?
Their trees/plants/grass have been around for thousands of years on the face of the earth. They have witnessed all sorts of happenings including famine, draught etc., and survived it all due to developing very strong resistance. Consuming their juice will strengthen the immunity of our body in the bone marrow.
Fibre – Most body parts don’t get a chance to function to their full potential only because the food we consume lack sufficient fibre due to which it skips the hundred plus hydraulic steps and become glucose within minutes. The human body requires about 30 grams of fiber per day. Most people believe that fruits, vegetables, greens will do the job, especially when consumed in salad form. Take carrot for example. 85% of it is water. Maybe 10% of the balance 15% is fibre. The math is simple from there…
Organic & Millets – While all millets are organic by nature and by virtue of how they grow naturally, all other millets except Barnyard, Browntop, Little, Foxtail and Kodo can be categorized as neutral food. Reason is that they contain a maximum of 3.5% fibre.
The five millets I have mentioned above contain between 8 to 12.5% fibre, hence categorized as positive foods by Dr. Khadar.
Consumption of these 5 millets without consuming the present day strain of rice, wheat, sugar, processed foods, fish, meat and eggs, continuously for 3 months is an extreme for most people. But it is required because the damage the human body has suffered during the past few decades needs to be undone.
Now once we consume the requisite amount of fibre everyday and all body parts, including the pancreas, are functioning well, will diabetes and ‘lifestyle diseases’ not be cured?
Coconut milk – milk from coconut everyday is a strongly recommended for people with dire diabetic conditions.
Fermentation – Any food that undergoes fermentation is good. The fermentation process has the ability to neutralize most ill effects contained in the food before fermentation. Examples are curds/buttermilk/idly/dosa…
