What is Diabetes?

The main source of energy for our body is blood glucose, which we get from the food we eat. This glucose is transported to all the cells of the body through a hormone called insulin, which is produced by the pancreas. When pancreas fails to produce enough insulin or the body is unable to use insulin efficiently, sugar levels increase in blood causing diabetes.

There are 3 types of diabetes:

  1. Type 1 diabetes occurs when cells of pancreas (islets of Langerhans) stop producing insulin, due to autoimmune disorder.
  2. Type 2 diabetes accounts for 90% of all diabetes. It occurs when insulin becomes insufficient or the body becomes resistant to insulin.
  3. Gestational diabetes occurs during pregnancy due to hormonal changes.

Type 2 diabetes most occurs in middle-aged and older people because of the unhealthy lifestyle and wrong eating habits.

Diabetes insipidus is not related to diabetes mellitus. It is a rare condition in which the kidneys are unable to retain water. This results in excess urination and excessive thirst, which are also the symptoms of diabetes mellitus.

Common symptoms of diabetes

  • Tingling or numbness in hands and feet
  • Frequent urination
  • Feeling tired
  • Excess thirst and hunger
  • Unexplained weight loss
  • Slow healing wounds
  • Skin dryness and itching
  • Blurred vision

Risk factors of diabetes

  • Obesity – according to research studies obesity is a major risk factor for prediabetes and type 2 diabetes. The more the fatty tissue in body, the more resistant cells become to insulin
  • Sedentary lifestyle – regular physical activity helps us maintain weight, use up glucose as energy and makes cells more sensitive to insulin
  • Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) – common condition in which women suffer from irregular periods, obesity, excess hair growth and obesity
  • Gestational diabetes
  • Age
  • Family history
  • High triglyceride levels
  • Unhealthy eating habits

Complications of diabetes

Over a period of time, high blood sugar levels damage the blood vessels and nerves, leading to serious complications which can be of two types:

  • Microvascular complications is due to damage of small blood vessels resulting in retinopathy (eye damage leading to blindness), nephropathy (kidney damage leading to renal failure), neuropathy (nerve damage) and diabetic foot disorders.
  • Macrovascular complications is due to damage of big blood vessels which leads to atherosclerosis which is narrowing of arteries. This results in decreased blood flow to heart muscles causing heart attack, or to brain causing stroke or to extremities leading to numbness, burning sensation and acute pain.

Dry Cough: Causes, Treatments, and Soothing Relief

Is your coughing keeping you up the whole night? You are not alone! Chronic dry cough is reported in 10-20% of the general population worldwide. Chronic cough which persists for more than 8 weeks can lead to considerable disturbance of sleep, urinary stress incontinence, exhaustion and work absenteeism. It can also be a warning sign of underlying respiratory and non-respiratory health issues.

What is dry cough?

Cough is a natural defense mechanism of the respiratory tract. It is the body’s way to clear lungs and the airways of irritants. A dry cough is known as unproductive cough because it doesn’t clear up phlegm or open up the lungs or airways. It essentially coughs up air.

Symptoms of chronic dry cough

  • Chest tightness and pain
  • Scratchy itchy feeling at the back of throat
  • Coughing is sometimes more at night because we produce less saliva during sleep making throat drier. The dry throat becomes more sensitive to irritants that triggers coughing

Common causes of chronic dry cough

  • Allergies like flu, cold, covid
  • Stuffy nose
  • Chronic lung disease like COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder), asthma, pneumonia, bronchitis
  • GERD is chronic acid reflux that can trigger cough
  • Smoking
  • Postnasal drip happens while lying down, when mucus drips from nasal passageways down the throat
  • Environmental irritants like pollution, smoke, dust, mold, pollen, chemicals like sulfur dioxide or nitric oxide
  • Clean dry or cold air can also cause dry cough

Monisha’s Mantra formula

  • Effective treatment is gargling with turmeric and salt warm water, 4 times daily. Salt and turmeric both have anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial properties
  • Drink the immuno-herbal lemongrass tea twice daily (Check the link)
  • Drink at least 10-12 glasses of warm water daily to keep throat moist
  • At bedtime do steam inhalation which helps in moisturizing the dry and irritated lining of nasal passages and throat (Breathe in through nose, breathe out through mouth, alternately breathe in through mouth and breathe out through nose)
  • Use humidifier which adds moisture to the air
  • Avoid dairy, cold drinks, pickles, refined sweets. Eat light simple food at night
  • Quit smoking and avoid secondary smoking
  • Sujok therapy:
    • Apply ginger juice on the palm area inside life line and inner side of thumb corresponding to the respiratory system, twice daily.
    • Apply blue colour band on the joint of big toe and then a line of whole moong seeds as shown in picture.
    • Find the painful point with a probe in the area just below the thumb joint and make 3 dots with dark blue color there. Then, we have to apply three dried peas on these blue colored points as shown in picture.
    • To manage acid reflux, apply carom seeds (ajwain) band on the inner side of any finger, below middle joint daily at night.
    • Along with seed therapy, you can also do magnet therapy. You have to apply the bar magnet on the index finger and little finger in this way for two hours.
    • Turmeric is very beneficial for cough and infections. So, apply a slice of turmeric on the finger as shown in picture.

At Monisha’s Mantra, we have managed to treat many cases of chronic cough without medicine using the self-healing power of the individual.

Combat Chronic Kidney Disease Naturally

Natural Remedies for Chronic Kidney Disease

Recent survey study shows that approximately more than 850 million people are affected globally by chronic kidney disease (CKD). The epidemic of CKD is on the rise in India with 10% of the total population suffering from this kidney disease.

Monisha’s Mantra has been spreading the awareness of CKD to the masses for prevention, early detection as well as controlling the chronic kidney disease  epidemic, naturally without medicine. We have regular health self-care programs, workshops and treatments to help everyone stay healthy and smiling.

What is chronic kidney disease?

We have two kidneys about the size of fist placed below the rib cage on either side of lumbar spine. The kidneys play a very important role in keeping the body clean, well-fuelled and function optimally. Chronic kidney disease is the progressive loss of kidney function over a period of time. In the early stages there are no symptoms and if left untreated it can finally lead to kidney failure.

Functions of kidneys

  • Remove excess water and waste products from the blood, after it has circulated through the body.
  • Maintain balance of minerals (sodium, potassium, calcium) in blood.
  • Produce hormones that help in regulating blood pressure and producing red blood cells.
  • Produce an active form of vitamin D, needed for bone health and other functions.
  • Filter the whole blood every 30 minutes.
  • Maintain acid-alkaline (pH) balance in blood.

Symptoms of CKD

  • Nausea and vomiting.
  • Weakness.
  • Frequent urination especially at night.
  • Foamy urine.
  • Blood in urine.
  • Itchy dry skin.
  • High blood pressure.
  • Weight loss.
  • Loss of appetite.
  • Shortness of breath.
  • Swelling in legs, ankles, feet or face.
  • Puffy eyes.
  • Muscle cramps.
  • Sleep problem.
  • Concentration issues.
  • Hyperkalemia is excess potassium levels in blood.
CKD stages

Stages of CKD

The stage of kidney disease is determined by the glomerular filtration rate (GFR), which is the measure of kidney function. As the chronic kidney disease progresses GFR decreases.

  1. GFR is 90 and above indicates kidneys are functioning well.
  2. GFR is 60 – 89 indicates kidneys are functioning moderately with no signs.
  3. GFR is 45 – 59 indicates mild damage to kidneys with noticeable symptoms.
  4. GFR is 30 – 44 indicates moderate damage. If detected and treated at this stage, the progress of further kidney damage can be stopped.
  5. GFR is 15 – 29 indicates poor kidney function and damage is severe.
  6. GFR is less than 15 indicates that kidneys are very close to failing and dialysis or kidney transplant needed.

Risk factors of CKD

  • Diabetes and hypertension are the main causes of CKD.
  • Heart disease.
  • Obesity.
  • Polycystic kidney disease is genetic disorder which causes cysts to grow in kidneys.
  • Lupus nephritis an autoimmune disease in which our immune system attacks kidneys.
  • Interstitial nephritis is side effect of medicine that limits kidney’s ability to filter the waste in blood.
  • Glomerulonephritis is glomerular disease in which kidney filters called glomeruli are damaged thus limiting kidney function of filtration.
  • Chronic viral illnesses like hepatitis B, C, HIV and AIDS.
  • Excess alcohol, tobacco intake.

Menopause – Mood Swings

It is important to keep in mind that menopause is not a disease but an important phase of a woman's life cycle.

During the transition phase of perimenopause to menopause, a woman’s reproductive hormonal levels of estrogen and progesterone start fluctuating and gradually decline. These hormonal changes can also affect serotonin and norepinephrine levels, which are brain chemicals responsible for promoting feelings of well-being and happiness. This condition triggers a number of symptoms which are physical as well as psychological. Many of these changes have a direct connection to menopausal mood swings.


● Anger and irritability
● High Anxiety
● Forgetfulness
● loss of confidence
● Feelings of sadness and depression

Pruritus is a dry itchy skin condition which affects many women in their menopausal stage. The good news is there are lots of natural choices to take care of the beautiful skin.

Menopause and Itchy Dry Skin – The Hormone connection

The female reproductive hormone, estrogen is responsible for triggering the body’s production of collagen and body’s oils, that keeps the skin moist and supple. During the perimenopause and menopause stage there is reduction in the estrogen levels. This results in reduction of collagen and oils which leads to dry itchy skin.

At our `Monisha’s Mantra`, we have helped women overcome their dry itchy skin condition Treating without Medicine and without any Side-effect; in the following manner:
