Love your honey lemon tea much??
Time to rethink!
During my university days, after classes, me with my bunch of girl friends would stop at @fillicafe to chitchat and have our favorite zaafran teas with milk, sugar, and their secret zafran recipe with saffron, cardamom etc (#drooling 😋)
While all of us ordered zaafran tea, one of my friends would order lemon tea with honey and mint. I used to tell her the same “dont drink this poison” and she never ordered it again.
During my 5.5 years of university doing BAMS( Bachelor of Ayurvedic Medicine & Surgery- yes it IS a helluuva long course) we were taught a million ( yes, a million) times about the goodness of pure honey and its various benefits if used both externally and internally.
Externally, warmed honey is used in #vasti - an Ayurvedic detox treatment for cleansing the gut, to alleviate many diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, disc bulge, for pain and inflammation etc.
But internally, Ayurveda warns the use of honey in any heated form - directly or mixed with warm milk, warm water, warm lemon water or with tea, etc
Ayurveda explains that warm honey causes “ama” in the body and its properties turn to that of a poison once inside the body. Ama is a condition where the mucous and toxicity of the body increases leading to many diseases.
How to take honey? All honey available in supermarkets are heated to extreme temperatures and packaged. Don’t buy honey from stores. Buy honey from people who sell natural honey directly from the bees. Have it raw, not heated!
So think of me before you sip that hot lemon tea with honey next time!
I have seen dietitians recommending warm water with honey to lose weight. Next time, tell them Dr Rekha told me don’t have it. 😂🙏🏻
TAG your FRIEND who LOVES lemon tea with honey!!🍯
Не знаю как веточки выдерживают эти огромные плоды!!! Джекфрут (или индийское хлебное дерево) ни снаружи ни внутри ничем не напоминает хлеб!!!! А названо так потому что даёт хороший урожай, очень питательно и часто является основной пищей для местных жителей!!!
Rendering of Taurus Zentrum Mall #Trivandrum .
#TaurusZentrum marks an opportunity to set a new benchmark for #retail lead development in the region. Combining shopping, leisure, commercial, hospitality and serviced residential space in a carefully integrated masterplan, the project will capitalise on the synergies of different user groups and offer a true downtown experience.
The masterplan is organised around a central lake with dining opportunities embracing the cascading water pools. The taller commercial, hotel and serviced residential buildings are placed around the retail development enjoying views across the landscaped roof garden towards the lake. Link bridges connect the individual components and the wider #Technopark community ensuring a continuously active and sustainable development.
The mall is configured as retail circuit anchored by department stores and fashion outlets with an impressive line-up of vanilla stores animating the 4 levels of day-lit galleries. A large event space occupies the heart of the retail space and allows glimpses up to the multiplex cinema and dining opportunities. The food court is a remarkable space from where it is possible to take in the lakeside views or enjoy the roof top garden and external dining terraces.
The architecture employs a rich palette of warm, natural materials reflecting the unique location of the project between coast and lush vegetation. Whilst the lake creates a stunning external setting, water is also a key theme employed within the interior spaces. Carefully designed openings allows daylight to flood all gallery levels and carefully curated lighting will create a more subtle in ambience in the evening hours. Externally the project appears as a sophisticated collection of retail pavilions, each employing facades with distinct geometries and patterning to create an animated and unique lakeside setting.
Indian One Horned Rhinoceros (IUCN: Vulnerable)/(Trivandrum Zoo)
The greater one-horned rhinoceros, is native to the Indian subcontinent. It is listed as Vulnerable on the IUCN Red List, as populations are fragmented and restricted to less than 20,000 km2 (7,700 sq mi). Moreover, the extent and quality of the rhino's most important habitat, alluvial grassland and riverine forest, is considered to be in decline due to human and livestock encroachment. As of 2008, a total of 2,575 mature individuals were estimated to live in the wild.
Binomial name: Rhinoceros unicornis
Ancestral rhinoceroses first diverged from other perissodactyls in the Early Eocene. Mitochondrial DNA comparison suggests the ancestors of modern rhinos split from the ancestors of Equidae around 50 million years ago.The extant family, the Rhinocerotidae, first appeared in the Late Eocene in Eurasia, and the ancestors of the extant rhino species dispersed from Asia beginning in the Miocene.
Fossils of R. unicornis appear in the Middle Pleistocene. In the Pleistocene, the genus Rhinoceros ranged throughout South and Southeast Asia, with specimens located on Sri Lanka.
The thick skin does not protect against bloodsucking Tabanus flies, leeches and ticks. The thick skin does not protect against bloodsucking Tabanus flies, leeches and ticks. Adult male Indian rhinos are usually solitary. Groups consist of females with calves, or of up to six subadults. Dominant males tolerate males passing through their territories except when they are in mating season, when dangerous fights break out. In captivity, four rhinos are known to have lived over 40 years, the oldest living to be 47.
