Ashoka & Ashwagandha: Safe & Instant Relief from Anxiety & Emotional Stress; – your SV Ayurveda Newsletter March 19, 2020 – #10, Vol 10

Stuff happens! Real bad stuff… And this is when we are called to be the best version of ourselves. But sometimes things are so bad we can’t even muster the mental energy, or the emotional stamina. No matter how hard we try. Does this mean we should we give up? That’s never the answer as we know. But anyways, how do you develop resilience? How do you get more “heart power” so that you don’t give up? There’s as many answers to that question as there are people on earth – all equally great! But perhaps the best answer right now is Ayurveda’s timeless wisdom. Sometimes, all you need is the mental clarity that only an ancient divine herb such as Ashwagandha can bestow; the heart-opening powerful boost from a mythical yet ever so real Ashoka plant. It’s what you know you can trust.
4 herbs for instant Stress Relief
Ashwagandha: settles the mind and nervous system so we don’t overreact to high stress
Mandook Parni (Gotu Kola): nourishes and grounds the mind by regulating the activites of “dhi, dritti, smritti”
Aindi (Bacopa Monnieri): nurtures and supports the mind by cooling things down and grounding mental activity;
Jatamansi (Nardostachys): reputed antidote for mental stress.
3 squirts for transmucosal instant delivery. Silence the anxious mental chatter by supporting your nervous system with these 4 time-tested ingredients. These herbs also support more alertness and sharpness of mind. As Vaidya Mishra always said: learn how to surf the big waves, don’t dread them.

Now more than ever is the time to bring out our SV ayurvedic tool kits. Supplementing with transdermal or transmucosal herbs is safe and effective. You get the benefits without the side-effects. Ashwagandha, for example, is a wonderful tonic for the nervouse system, however, it is too heating for pitta types. And right now we are all pitta-ed out! How do you get the benefit without enduring the side-effects? That’s Vaidya Mishra’s gift to us. Specially with the transmucosal nectar drops, you get the herb’s energetic intelligence delivered within instants to your whole system. When our body chemistry is boosted by the intelligence of these herbs, we can take decisions with more clarity and confidence. Try out our best-selling roll-ons and nectar drops
AND remember to stay on top of your routine to maximize immunity and emotional strenght: eat and sleep on time – don’t skip or delay meals. Don’t stay up after 9:45pm. Cook fresh meals and avoid left-overs. Practice “surrender:” when you are feeling down and out, sad and anxious, about the future, about the world, about anything. And: don’t try to figure it out or control it; instead, let it go, take a deep breathe, and with your exhale surrender all your worries and fears to that “knowingness” within you, that awaits your call and beckon show you the way.

Did you miss our free session on SVA Immunity ?
Support & Boost Immunity
1. Vaidya Mishra’s Tridoshic Nasal Oil, which nourishes and lubricates the nasal cavity. With over 15 herbs in a synergistic blend it detoxes and supports the immunity of the nasal passages, enhancing the intelligence of the physical and vibrational channels. Since COVID-19 or any other virus or airborne pathogen enter through the nose by breathing in or touch, this oil provides a barrier.
What’s in it? All the good antiviral and antibacterial herbs, plus calms the mind! Here’s the list: Black Pepper, Cumin, Turmeric, Sunthi, Cinnamon, Cardamom, Large Cardamom, Tulsi, Boswelia, Greater galangal, Bacopa, Lodhra, Guduchi, Kantakari, Manjishta, Saffron, Jatamansi, Clove leaf and Sweet basil in a blend of Sesame and Jojoba oil base

2. I love his Sinus Cough ‘n Cold Inhaler which not only unblocks the nasal cavity and lung channels, but supports the resistance to infection. This inhaler will also support the chest area when there is a mild cough. Contains Organic Camphor, Peppermint, Ajwain, and Holy Basil (Tulsi) - see below for more details.
Protect, Unblock, Support Sinus and Lungs with
SVA Sinus Cough’n Cold Inhaler 
This inhaler contains natural essential oil that are known for millenia in Ayurveda to help unblock the nasal cavity and support the lung channels. The aromatic molecules instantly travel through the sinus pathways without irritating them, and support the nasal cavity to resist bacterial infection and contamination. This inhaler will also support the chest area when there is a mild cough. Carry this inhaler with you in flu season, or any time, for a quick and easy way to unblock, protect, and refresh your sinus pathways. Whether carried in your purse or pocket, this inhaler is your sinuses’ best friend. Ayurveda has for millennia used aromatherapy with an array of delivery systems – incense, perfumes, balms, etc. Vaidya Mishra has introduced this new delivery system with his convenient to carry nasal inhalers. These nasal inhalers are based on Sugandha Vigyan - the Ayurvedic wisdom of how scents and aromas enter into and affect the mind and body. The aromatic molecules of the SVA inhalers readily travel to the nervous system through the nostrils – directly yet gently. Vaidya Mishra’s nasal inhalers are easy to carry with no spill or stain risks. They contain all organic essential oils where available and contain absolutely no synthetic or artificial ingredients or fixatives.  
What’s in your Inhaler?
Ingredients and their ayurvedic properties: Organic Camphor, Holy Basil or Tulsi, Ajwain, and Peppermint.
Camphor is an FDA-approved topical antitussive (anti-cough), Camphor has anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory properties; Holy Basil or Tulsi, in Ayurveda, is known to relieve symptoms of asthma, bronchitis, colds, congestion, coughs, flu, sinusitis, sore throat, and similar ailments. To clear your sinuses, inhale the steam from a fresh cup of tea before you drink it, or just use Vaidya’s Cough’n Cold inhaler;
Ajwain: helps clear nasal blockage by discharging the mucus easily; Peppermint: helps reducing the harmful bacterial growth in the mouth, is a great decongestant when inhaled; is used for treatment for cough and cold or throat irritation.

3. Sneh Gandush for oil pulling, which is a procedure to hold and swish 1-2 teaspoonfuls of herbalized oil in your mouth for 5-10 minutes. Medical News Todays list the following benefits: 
Killing harmful bacteria in the mouth. The mouth contains hundreds of bacteria, some of which are harmful and may lead to tooth decay, bad breath, and gum disease. …
Reducing bad breath. …
Preventing cavities. …
Reducing inflammation and improving gum health. 
Vaidya Mishra’s formulation accomplishes lipid oral detox with a mixture of sesame and coconut oils into which different herbs have been synergistically infused to address the different needs of the oral cavity. By killing harmful bacteria in the mouth oil pulling encouraging the growth on beneficial bacteria keeping the oral cavity healthy and preventing airborne pathogens from penetrating and invading.

4.Zinc Bhasma glyceride drops.
Another way to stop the COVID-19 in its tracks is by using Zinc. If you google the benefits of Zinc one of the first things that comes up is that is modulates the immune system. You will find many scholarly articles on Zinc and its antiviral properties. 
Journal of Virology (American Association of Microbiology) states “the requirement for zinc ions for the antiviral activity is further substantiated. Therefore, an increase in intracellular zinc levels provides the basis for a new antipicornavirus mechanism.”
An easy to assimilate Zinc products are the “bhasmas”

Anti-bacterial Immuno-supporting Uses of Tribindu
  1. Sinus Support: discourages bacterial growth and support your sinus cavity when inhaled. Spray it on a scarf and gently inhale. Keep away from your eyes. 
  2. Sanitize and prevent infection: apply on your toe and finger nails after clipping them to ward off the chance of infections;
  3. Anti-bacterial air-freshener: spray it in your room – on your couch, pillows, carpet, desk, or just in the air. All the ingredients in this formula help remove bad odors through their “krimigni” or anti-bacterial properties. You can also use with it with an essential oil diffuser.
  4. Uplift and pacify the mind: Tribindu pacifies Vata dosha through its thermogenic properties and support kapha dosha by improving circulation – it’s your best friend in the winter time and in cold weather; and when you are feeling vata-ed out or stuck and stiff!
  5. Ward off mold and fungus: through its potent bactericidal properties this formula can be used in area where there is mold and fungus growth. Spray on directly (carpets, upholstery; drawers; nooks and crannies!) – 2-3 times a day.
CAUTION: if you inadvertently get the spray in your eyes, rinse with cool/cold water and it will wash off easily and immediately. 

As the situation worsens with more cases detected nationwide, we need not panic. There are many things you can do to prevent infection. Did you know that pathologists who have been studying Corona viruses for decades say that these viruses can be killed by zinc?
In SV Ayurveda, we use zinc bhasmas which are meticulously prepared metallic zinc processed through various calcinations, as depicted in this article, into a nanoparticle. This resultant nanoparticle is an extremely small particle which can enter the cell much easier than its unprocessed large heavy metallic zinc.

Known as “Yasad Bhasma” this zinc nanoparticle has been shown to be highly effective in treating the various forms of Corona viruses.
We have two strengths, and are in the process of stockpiling them for the expected epidemic coming our way.
Add 5 drops to a glass of room temperature spring water and stir. For added potency, add 5 drops of Boswellia Nectar Drops. Stir well and either sip on it slowly throughout the day or drink it down immediately.
We use the zinc primarily in adults but may use it in some children who have weak immune systems but in different dosage.
Read the article HERE which shows all the steps involved in processing the zinc so it is more biologically available and thus more active in your cells.
