Understanding Tulsi Leaves and Seeds' Mysterious Healing Powers


Tulsi, usually called holy basil, is a frequently used herb in Ayurvedic treatment. This plant has been used for generations and is revered in India for its numerous health advantages. Tulsi is a strong herb that supports both physical and mental well-being, making it an intriguing topic for research.


The following are some astounding and fascinating tulsi health advantages:


Immunity Booster: Tulsi has potent immunomodulatory effects that support the immune system. It has anti-oxidants and essential oils that protect the body from harm from toxins in the environment and free radicals.


Reduces Stress: Tulsi, well-known for its adaptogenic characteristics, helps the body deal with stress. It has been found to increase feelings of relaxation and lower the body's stress chemicals like cortisol levels.

Tulsi's antibacterial properties are useful against many bacterial, viral, and fungal illnesses. Also, it helps treat respiratory illnesses like bronchitis, asthma, and colds.


Promotes Digestion: Tulsi leaves' carminative qualities help to relieve gastrointestinal issues like bloating, flatulence, and constipation. It also encourages healthy digestion and supports healthy gut flora.

Tulsi is a very effective plant for supporting cardiovascular health because it has been shown to lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels. Moreover, it improves blood flow and reduces blood clots.


Improves Oral Health: Tulsi's natural anti-inflammatory and antibacterial qualities aid in reducing inflammation and preventing mouth infections. Gum disease can be treated with it, and it lessens bad breath.


Understanding the Mysteries of Using Tulsi Leaves


There are several ways to consume tulsi leaves. Making tea with tulsi is one of the most popular consumption methods. Add a few tulsi leaves to boiling water and let them steep for a few minutes to produce tulsi tea. To improve the flavor of the tea, you can also add honey or lemon.


Moreover, tulsi leaves can be included in curries, soups, and stews. They can also create a paste administered directly to the skin to treat skin infections and expedite wound healing.


Safety Measures to Take


Even though tulsi is generally safe to consume, you should still exercise caution if you are expecting, nursing, or on any medications. Tulsi should not be consumed in big doses because it may have negative consequences.


In conclusion, tulsi, often known as holy basil, is a mysterious and potent herb with several health advantages. It is a great herb for supporting both physical and mental health, and you can eat it in various ways, such as tea, soup, and curries. However, before ingesting tulsi, you must exercise prudence and speak with a medical expert. Tulasi's amazing and inspiring health effects clarify why Ayurvedic practitioners consider it a sacred herb.

  • I have been struggling with IBS-C related gut issues for over 10 years, have been eating low fodmap for many years with no resolutions to my gut function. Recently I’ve been seeing Gurnam Saini (Ayurvedic Doctor) and in only one month of treatment with natural therapies I’ve seen outstanding results. Previously I was unable to digest foods properly/unable to have regular or efficient bowel movements (feeling very unwell due to this), back pain related to abdominal pain, having trouble sleeping and low energy. I’m currently one month into treatment and I never thought I’d be able to restore regular gut function, but I’m properly digesting foods, my sleep is phenomenal and I have a surge in energy, most importantly my mind feels clear and focused with no brain fog and I feel like myself again after years living with the stress of IBS. I’m going to start re-introducing foods in 6 months and have great faith in the knowledge and professionalism shown by Gurnam Saini and the team at Pure Herbal Ayurved Clinic.

  • I saw Dr Saini in July 2019 for “acid reflux” after suffering of months. I tried different medicines but didn’t work. There was a time I started believing that there was no permanent cure to this disease. Dr Saini is an authentic Ayurvedic doctor. He can do miracles for you. I honestly believe he’s a blessing for the city of Melbourne otherwise it would have been very hard to physically see an Ayurvedic doctor like him. My heart burn got worst with the time & became just unbearable. I couldn’t eat anything or sleep at all. Finally, I found him via google and peoples reviews convinced me to give him a call. He’s an angel & listens everything. He gave me a three month’s plan which I completed happily. But unbelievably my acid reflux reduced 80% within three days & completely gone in five days & it never came back since then. I’m so happy & enjoying my life like I used to. God bless Dr Saini & God bless those who wrote reviews which convinced me to give him a call first time.

  • I was suffering from ibs from a long time urgency to go to toilet and mucus in stool . Even I ordered medicine from India but it wasn’t work and proper guidelines there, they just there for sale the medicine only . Dr shani only one months medicine improved 80% of my gut problem . If anyone suffering from symptoms like ibs or gut issue I will definitely recommend to visit dr shani clinic .

  • I decided to take my 10 yr old daughter to Dr Saini after 9.5 yrs of struggling with eczema and food intolerances, and no solutions found but topical, long term use of cortisone creams. After only one month, we saw massive improvements in her skin, finally clearing up the majority of her eczema. This was done with herbal capsules and without needing to remove various foods from her diet. That improvement allowed us to tackle other health concerns like her consistent disturbed sleep. Now 4 months on, her skin is perfect, and her sleep is mostly uninterrupted. Any sporadic nighttime waking is for a very short period of time. And even better, now we can focus on her digestion which is my last concern for her. I can’t recommend Ayurvedic medicine enough to gently and naturally heal and balance out your body. l had done lots of reading on Ayurveda before we tried it, and all my expectations have been met and I’m sure will be exceeded in the near future. Thank you Dr Saini, for your kind and gentle consultations, and genuine interest in better health outcomes for your patients.

  • I would highly recommend Dr Saini for the treatment of Arthritis.I had pain,stiffness and numbness in my fingers and joints.Its been a year now and I have noticed 80% improvement in my condition.Thank you Dr Saini.

  • I cannot recommend highly enough. This has been my first experience with Ayurvedic medicine and the Panchakarma cleanse and I can finally say that after years of striving for better health and wellbeing, I finally understand what is going to work for me moving forward. Having experience a traumatic event and subsequent PTSD 5 years ago, my gut and my body became increasingly compromised. In this time I have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia, complex regional pain syndrome and various ailments of the gut. I came to see Dr Saini and Pooja at a time that I felt frustrated with my years of work to see some more obvious progress with my healing. Having completed the Panchakarma cleanse, I am feeling fully renewed. Awake. Settled. I no longer struggle to wake each morning and get through each day. My appetite feels steady and all cravings have completely ceased. I now have some tools under my belt to fall back on when I know my digestive system needs a break. This cleanse has been a complete game changer. Thankyou Dr Saini and Pooja for you incredible guidance and support. Liz

  • Meeting Dr, Saini has been a blessing here in Melbourne. I've always believed in holistic health and I was looking for a practitioner who could not only treat some deficiencies but bring my health up to speed. Dr, Saini is an esteemed Doctor with years of experience in holistic healing globally. I had been in poor health this year however through Pachkarma and Pure herbal Ayurveda Clinic's treatments, there has been a transformation in my overall health, energy and spirit. Highly recommended if you want to transform your health holistically and want to get out of the rut of medications.
