 Chameli and Neem leaves can cure Gangrene
 Curative power of Chameli and Neem leaves when coupled with Ayurvedic medicated bandage, surgical procedures and modern antibiotics can cure Fournier's Gangrene, a festering bacterial infection that turns fatal in 40 per cent of cases.

Department of Shalya Tantra at Faculty of Ayurveda, IMS-BHU has successfully used a mix of Ayurveda and Modern Medicine to cure 300-plus critical patients of Fourniers Gangrene, a bacterial infection of skin, which affects genitals and perineum. The disease caused by anaerobic bacteria, which survive without oxygen, if not managed properly, can turn deadly within a few hours, causing death due to septicemia complications, including acute renal failure.

Over 300 critical cases of Fournier's Gangrene have till date been cured cent per cent using a prudent combo of modern antibiotics and Ayurvedic herbs along with Ayurvedic Surgery, reveals Department of Shalya Tantra, IMS-BHU. Among those whose life has been saved through this medication, include a youth whose wife abandoned him due to the festering wound, which had put his life in danger.

The surgical and chemical cleaning of the dead tissue from the infectious wound paves the passage for application of decocted solution of Neem leaves to naturally clean the festering wound. Once cleaned naturally, the infectious wound formulation prepared from Chameli leaves is administered either with Ghee or in oil form to naturally heal the wound totally.

Experts at Department of Shalya Tantra have successfully used Ayurvedic wound management practices to save cases of Diabetic Foot from amputation, with assistance of IMS-BHU's Endocrinologists, who help in controlling diabetes during the Ayurvedic management of the Diabetic Foot.

 Hardening of blood vessels can be prevented by Bil
 Bilberry extracts can prevent the build up of plaques in the arteries, thereby preventing hardening of blood vessels and boosting overall heart health reveals a new study in France.

In the study, the fermented bilberry extract, out-performed the standard extract, prompting the French researchers to suggest that yeast fermentation produces new bioactive compounds with heart health effects.

Researchers performed the study on mice, segregating them into three groups. All groups were fed with standard control diet, but two of the groups received one of two bilberry extracts. One rich in anthocyanin extracted from untreated bilberries, and the other extracted from yeast-fermented bilberries.

Bilberry was recommended for diabetics, as the constituents in berries help in improving the strength and integrity of blood vessels and reduces damage to the vessels associated with diabetes and other diseases, such as atherosclerosis. The berries contain flavonoids, the compounds found in the pigment of several plants. The flavonoid anthocyanin protects body tissues, particularly the blood vessels from oxidizing agents in the blood.

Bilberry preparations are also useful in treating eye conditions, such as diabetic retinopathy, cataracts, degeneration, night blindness, and degeneration of macula.

 Grape Juice proves to be good for heart
 The grape juice has proven effective in preventing heart attacks, angina and strokes, a research has revealed. Drinking purple grape juice boosted the nightly dip in blood pressure, offering the heart and veins vital rest, revealed reports of 64 adults in the study.

Such a conclusion has been arrived at because, there already exists evidence that "non-dippers" who do not experience it, are more prone to developing cardiovascular problem.

An earlier study had revealed that drinking eight to ten ounces of red grape juice a day has potent effect on blood cells called platelets, reducing the tendency to form clots, as clots can lead to heart attacks.

This study also revealed that red grape juice may be even more potent than aspirin, and is widely recommended as a way to prevent heart attacks. Even when one is actually suffering from a heart attack, grape juice treatment tones up the heart and is effective in cardiac pain and heart palpitation.

The researchers also compared the results of grape juice with orange and grapefruit juice, but arrived at the conclusion that grape juice is the best heart tonic. Grapes also have several other health benefits, unknown to many. The rich content of glucose in grapes makes it the most valuable fruit. Glucose is pre-digested food, absorbed in the body soon after consumption. It supplies heat and energy to the body within short time and is thus considered a magic fruit for re-energizing the body.

Grapes are rich in Iron, Copper, Manganese and Potassium, but low in sodium. Although grapes are high in acids, they have an alkaline effect on our body. The high potassium and low sodium chloride content makes it good for all kidney problems. Grapes act on the Kidneys and Liver and promote elimination of waste and toxin matters from the system. Moreover, the high iron content helps in improving anaemia too.

The excess alkalinity of grapes and raisins helps by dissolving uric acid and is considered good for arthritis and gout. It is also beneficial in cases of Asthma, Cancer and migraine, wherein the patient is put only on grape juice diet for days.

 Tequila Plant helps to treat diabetes, osteoporosi
 Researchers opine that the agave plant, the key ingredient in Mexico's famous tequila, could help treat diabetes and osteoporosis.

Experiments on rats suggested that a diet rich in fructans from the plant could both help improve the formation of bone tissue and stimulate the production of the GLP-1 hormone which promotes insulin release. Drinking tequila would not give the same health benefits, however, since fructans lose their effect during the fermentation process.

Scientists at the research center of the National Polytechnic Institute in the western state of Guanajuato were to carry out a second stage of research on rodents before testing their results on humans.

 Cherries can use as anti-inflammatory
 Cherry-rich diets are indeed anti-inflammatory, new study confirms. The diets not only reduced overall body inflammation, but also reduced inflammation at key sites. Such inflammations cause heart disease in obese, at-risk rats.

At-risk obese rats were fed a cherry-enriched "Western Diet," characterized by high fat and moderate carbohydrate for 90 days. Cherry-enriched diets, which consisted of whole tart cherry powder as 1 percent of the diet, reduced risk factors for heart disease including cholesterol, body weight, fat mass and known markers of inflammation. While inflammation is a normal process, the body uses to fight off infection or injury, according to recent science, a chronic state of inflammation increases the risk for diseases.

Chronic inflammation is a whole body condition that can affect overall health, especially when it comes to the heart. The study offers further promise that foods rich in antioxidants, such as cherries, could potentially reduce inflammation and have the potential to lower disease risk.

A second pilot study found similar results in humans. Ten overweight or obese adults drank eight ounces of tart cherry juice daily for four weeks. At the end of the trial, there were significant reductions in several markers of inflammation, in addition to lower levels of triglycerides, another key risk factors for heart disease.
