Using Raw green mangoes

Take few raw mangoes which are green skinned and peel the skin off.
put the mangoes in pressure cooker along with some water and boil then for few minutes.

Add some sugar or jaggery and some salt to balance te sourness of raw mangoes.
After cooling down, remove the seed and squeeze off the thick juice into a vessel.

Store it in refrigirator and daily twice add half glass of this juice to half glass cold water and drink it

Advantages :

Its refreshing.
Quences thirst immediately.
removes excess heat from body and cools you in few minutes
Wanting to learn vast ranged Astrology only to predict few sport events is like Marrying only for Sex !

The greatest mistake you can make in life is to be continually fearing you will make one !

Barley Water

This water mixture is for someone who has low agni (digestion). It is very easy to assimilate and nurturing for fat tissue which in turn makes good quality bone tissue.

    * 2 Tbsp cracked barley or barley flour
    * 2 pinch salt
    * 4 cups water

Combine above ingredients and cook for about 15 minutes so that it is some what overcooked. Use a filter or strainer to obtain barley water. If you use cracked barley instead of barley flour, you will need to place the mixture in a blender for a few minutes prior to straining.

    * For Vata body type: add 1/8 tsp whole cumin to barley mixture while cooking.
    * For Pitta body type: add 1/8 tsp fennel to barley mixture while cooking.
    * For Kapha body type: add 2 thin slices fresh ginger to barley mixture while cooking.
