Desi Dawaiye (medicine)


Recommended Posts


As we all get ill, I thought it would be good to have a thread of desi medicines we can all share. I feel Western medicine as good as it is, in some cases doesn't want you to get 100% better but just enough for you needing to go back for me ( this discussion is probably left to separate thread).

So if we could write all the desi remedies we have learnt so we can share with the sangat, and also if the sangat does have issues they need a remedy for, this would be a good place to add!

To start off with 



I have been having couscous every morning a teaspoon with water for this. Seems to have work slowly but not sneezing as much.

Aches and pains

Haldi-milk. Sure everyone has heard of this before, and western world is catching up on this one too but great for aches and pains and many other things  


Please add more on the thread so we can share!

Dried powdered moringa leaves (Also called drumstick plant leaves) are essentially a natural multivitamin. Bring it into your diet (but don't have everyday to avoid an excess build up of nutrients). 

You can crush a handful into any curry you make. 

Double like on moringa.

The nutrient profile on the dried leaves seem too good to be true. Also, it's interesting to note that drying the leaf seems to increase the concentration of many of the nutrients. 

I buy mine as a bunch of branches with fresh leaves, in a pack, from a local Sri Lankan supermarket, and then remove the leaves with my hands (a laborious and sometimes messy process!)  and put them in one of those net type bags (so air/moisture/heat can escape and penetrate), and hang them outside on the washing line for a few days when its not raining.

    • https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-63072113 Russia's Vladimir Putin will hold a signing ceremony on Friday to annex four more areas of Ukraine after self-styled referendums condemned by Ukraine and the West as a sham. Russian-backed officials had earlier claimed the five-day exercise secured almost total popular support. So-called votes were held in Luhansk and Donetsk in the east, and in Zaporizhzhia and Kherson in the south. The Russian president will make a major speech at the Kremlin. A stage has already been set up in Moscow's Red Square, with billboards proclaiming the four regions as part of Russia and a concert planned for the evening.  The event echoes Russia's annexation of Crimea in 2014, which also followed a discredited referendum and was heralded by a Kremlin signing followed by a presidential victory speech in parliament. That initial annexation has never been recognised by the vast majority of the international community, and nor will this.  Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said the "pseudo-referendums" were worthless and did not change reality. "The territorial integrity of Ukraine will be restored. And our reaction to recognition of the results by Russia will be very harsh."  No independent monitoring of the Russian process took place and election officials were pictured going from door to door escorted by armed soldiers. "Tomorrow at 15:00 (12:00 GMT) in the St George Hall of the Grand Kremlin Palace a signing ceremony will be held on incorporating the new territories into Russia," said spokesman Dmitry Peskov. Separate agreements will be signed with the two Russian-backed separatist leaders from the east and the two Russian-appointed officials from the south. As with Crimea, Russia's two houses of parliament will formally ratify the annexation treaties next week. The Russian president is expected to address to the upper house of parliament on 4 October, three days before his 70th birthday.  The US has said it will impose sanctions on Russia because of the staged referendums, while EU member states are considering an eighth round of measures, including sanctions on anyone involved in the votes.

    • You really are full of nonsense. The reason the Gujaratis came to Britain after being expelled from Africa was because they had British citizenship, no other reason. Many of them had to live in detention camps when they arrived! They did not uplift the image of Indians by selling saris and owning corner shops, something that Punjabis were doing where they were a majority anyway. 
    • Because Naamdharis are absolute masters at kirtan. Simple. On the topic of Akal Takht, it doesn't really hold the same authority as it did in the past. Just look at the people running it and you'll get what I mean. Most the panth, outside of stuff like Tankhaya, don't care about anything they have to say.
