Wjkk, Wjkf sangat ji, 

My siblings and I sat our parents down for a serious conversation about their health. They’re getting older & they need to be eating healthier. 

My dad said that his body isn’t healthy if his food has ਬੈਅ. My question is.. 

** WHAT IS ਬੈਅ?  Pronunciation: B with short A sound [ back without the ck ] 

It would be great if someone could let me know what this translates to in English, please. That way, we can do better when we prepare our parents meal plans. As of right now, my parents & other uncles/aunties have given vague explanations of the word ਬੈਅ. 

(I’m told Fauja Singh said he doesn’t eat things with ਬੈਅ) 

Thank you, 

Wjjk, Wjkf

I think it’s prounced as ‘Bi’ in punjabi. The word means inflammation. I.e foods/drinks which cause inflammation in body.

Yeah, I've heard "Bi" before not really ਬੈਅ.

Prepare anti-inflammatory foods for the elderly.  Actually we should all be having some ginger soup or sund as it is called regularly. It just means roasting a little ginger powder in a little butter and adding water and boiling until it turns souplike. 

Some people add onions, potatoes or other desired stuff. My mum used to add maize flour to reduce the strong ginger taste.

I think that means 'Baa', Ive written a post about it before, Ill quote it here:

"vaheguru ji ka khalsa vaheguru ji ki fateh I dont know what baa is called in english, but in doabi bhasha its called baa.. Its side effects are: numb arms+legs/balance problems/head pain/drool/breathing problems/& more.. The way to 'fix' it is to eat a spoon of kali mirch, and the way you know you have baa is if the kali mirch doesnt taste spicy.. I think I heard this sickness starts if we eat too many sweet things, and not enough hot things (hot as in it causes heat, garam like coconuts, kali mirch, ginger, grapes).. So maybe when we eat the kali mirch it burns away the bad element. Be careful when eating the kali mirch though! Make sure to not get it into the lungs. Please forgive me for any mistakes vaheguru ji ka khalsa vaheguru ji ki fateh"

Bai things are harder to digest , they take more bodily effort to break down then they also can create extra gas/inflammation in the system e.g. gobi,yoghurt . Because of the overuse of antibiotics/steroids, increase in processed foods  the digestive tract is low on beneficial bacteria so you get younger people getting problems with bai than you would traditionally see. Garam masala is added to our foods to keep the digestion ticking along nicely as well as ginger . Yoghurt is one of those things that people add black pepper to because of bai

Bai or baee or vaee/vai 

You should google.it for.ayurvedic info. Thats where it comes from

Alternatively, u can just ask ur parents which foods they dialike and cant handle or which foods have bai.

Then dont cook.those foods for them.

or get them on pro and pre biotics and digestive enzymes (vegan of course) and see them bounce back health wise

I forgot to mention that my parents are amritdhari ∴ vegetarian, & consume only home-made food other than some decaf coffee.

I still don’t know if bai/baa is starch or something else. Thank you for all the responses. 

Wjkk, Wjkf

Yeh, she's got it.

For Bai, you need to take garam foods.  Haldee and black peppercorns, as well as ginger mentioned above.

As for pro-biotics,... I'm still trying to suss them out. I'm inclined to believe that home-made dhayeen has sufficient amount of pro-biotics that we need.

Agree, that antibiotics, which apnay take willy nilly for the occasional sniffle, ..do you more harm than good. Use alternative anti bacterials/anti fungals like oregano oil.

or just make adrak cha  or if flu ajwain pani based hot drinks will knock any virus scatty in half the normal time it takes regular meds ...it's funny how doctor's meds for cold last 7 days the same prodrome phase of your average cold ...makes you wonder if there's a point . I would sweeten adrak juice with raw honey and use that for throat infections .

You could boost the beneficial in your jag for home yoghurt by adding probiotic powder with billions of other good strains...much better than anything in the shops

It's flatulence/rheumatism.

Remember reading about Fauja Singh eating foods with ginger at least once a week....

Home-made pickles can help e.g. mango or carrots with something else for vitamins a & k2.

I thankful for the responses. Rheumatism sounds accurate. Fauja Singh is definitely someone to look up to when it comes to health. I pray that parents within our community become healthier. Within the Punjabi community, I’m sure the diet of many baby boomers would’ve disappointed their parents lol.

Sweets & oily foods a plenty at gurdwaras; Where are the fruits& veggies? I’m gonna start bringing those into gurudwaras, starting with Sikh summer camps! 

Wish me luck 😄 

Wjkk, Wjkf 🙏🏼
