As I said in the earlier post here , Brahmi leaf provides great benefits to Health in multiple ways. Consuming the Brahmi leaf daily may be a difficult task for many of us. It is not necessary to take only Brahmi as leaf. Below are the various form to in take the Brahmi leaf.
Soak Brahmi leaves in water overnight. Grind into a paste with a few ground almonds, sugar-candy and milk. This tonic gives strength and cools the system, tones the liver and eliminates all worms in the bowels. This drink fights nervous debility and invigorates the brain.
Paste and Juice:
Paste of the leaves applied to a child's navel cures dysentery and diarrhea. It also helps in elephantiasis, swelling of the testicles, rheumatic swelling, boils and contusion. Juice of the leaves mixed with cow's milk, cures skin diseases, impure blood in children, syphilis and stomach troubles in adults.
Make pea-sized pills using five parts of Brahmi whole plant powder, four parts kushtam (costus root) powder and six parts honey. Take one pill daily for nervous debility caused by diseases of the lower abdomen.
Brahmi Leaves Powder:
Five grains of powder in 750 ml milk twice daily increases memory power. This powder is also useful in leprosy. Spread fresh leaves on a clean mat in the shade. Freely expose them to air, but not to sun. Do not use heat as this destroys all its virtues. When the leaves are fully dried, powder them finely and keep in a well-corked bottle. Take three to five grains three times daily.
Brahmi is also used for protein deficiencies and increases red blood corpuscles. It cools the brain and calms the heart and helps to guard against heart attacks. It purifies the entire system and eliminates poisons and toxic substances from the kidneys and liver. Taken with tulsi/ basil and a little black pepper, Brahmi is good for all kinds of fevers.
