Introduction
Basil has long been known as a valuable herb through the ages, when it was used to flavor foods. But this herb has also been a valuable an integral part of ancient alternative medicine. More than 4000 years ago, one of the greatest of ancient doctors Charaka wrote in his compendium that the juice from the leaves of the sacred basil mixed with honey taken three times a day could cure patients suffering from whooping cough and chest ailments.
That was the time when people relied on natural cures, and their own inmate good health to keep healthy and live long. I am proud to present this book to you, about one of the most useful herbs available to mankind today, of which the significant benefits have been written in ancient books of the East.

Oscimum sanctum is the scientific name given to the sacred basil. What is the difference between cooking basil and sacred basil? Well, to tell you very frankly, most of the cooks in the East prefer to use the plant, which has purplish colored leaves, in their food, just before serving. They call that the cooking basil. On the other hand, the sacred basil has smaller and greener leaves, more pungent in odor and in taste.
One rule passed down from the ancients is that milk and Basil do not mix. So when you are getting rid of a cough and cold, you make up a mixture of one teaspoonful each of honey and dried ginger, eight black peppercorns, and 5 to 10 basil leaves and boil them in water. Drink them down twice a day, and there goes your cold. But if you are boiling these ingredients in milk, leave the basil leaves out.
Sacred basil has a religious and mythological significance coming down the ages, both in the East and in the West. The Greek Eastern Orthodox church used basil in traditional rituals and the women of the house used to sprinkle sacred basil on the threshold of their houses on St. Basil’s day celebrated on 1 January in order to usher in a new and fruitful prosperous new year.

Introduction
Cardamoms are considered to be one of the most expensive and precious spices in the world today, taking their place along with saffron, cinnamon, cloves and vanilla.
So what is the magic about this fruit, which has made it the cause for sailors and soldiers going out to conquer lands where this plant was a native and grown extensively? Historians say that this plant is native to the Indian subcontinent, and that is why the tropical climate made this plant flourish all over Nepal, Bhutan, India, and surrounding areas.
You may find cardamom in the market, packaged in green seed pods, which have to be removed so that you can find aromatic green seeds inside. The shell is papery and is equally aromatic as are the seeds. Guatemala is a top producing country for cardamoms, which are either black or green in color. Both of them belong to the same family, but are two different species.
The green cardamoms which you enjoy sprinkling on your desserts , or just enjoy chewing on the seeds to freshen your breath are Elettaria, [this name has been taken from the traditional ancient name for cardamoms –elaichi- taken from the original Sanskrit ellaka] while the dark brown larger pods are Amomum. [This word has been derived from the Greek word amonos Or One without Reproach.]
Many researchers believe that this is the spice referred to in the New Testament, – a large portion of which was originally written in Greek – and called amomon. In the same way, a priceless spice tablet going back more than 3000 years, and found in recent excavations in Mycenae in ancient palatial archives, talks about this precious spice-amomon.
The great Greek botanist Theophrastus described this spice in 450 BCE, but he was not very certain about whether it originally came from Persia or from India. All he knew that it came from the mysterious lands of spices.
Surprisingly enough, this family belongs to the same family as the well-known herb- ginger. The family is Gingiferaceae , with different genus and species making up the members of this family. Read more…

Introduction
Why is it to that the word “Chillies” does not conjure up a vista of something really hot, in the Eastern mind, but does so, in the Western mind? That is because few Easterners are particularly fascinated by the heat of chillies, because as they say, Familiarity Breeds Contempt. They are so used to having chillies as a part of the daily cuisine, and in their natural remedies, that it has never been an exotic spice or a herb to them.
An Easterner knows that chillies are hot. He knows that he can alleviate the burning sensation by taking a spoonful of yogurt, or a spoonful of sugar. In fact, in 1902, an American pharmacist William Scoville did some research on how many drops of sugar water were needed to alleviate the burning sensation of a hot chili pepper! But in the East, the chillies are just not restricted to their heat content – they are used to give the deep red color to gravies, especially hot red curries and gravies like Goan Vindaloos and Rogan Josh. Eastern sauces and pickles are given their piquancy with a handful of chillies.
Some of the milder chillies are stuffed with a mixture of spices and mashed potatoes, and served as a vegetable. Capsicum is a good example of that particular chillie family.
Chillies are just not an integral part of Indian cuisine; they are also very popular among the Chinese, the Thais and other oriental and Eastern cuisine, excepting the Japanese. The Japanese, have kept away from the Chillie Revolution, and that is why their food, though delicious and nutritious is comparatively bland in heat content.
Thai cuisine is a mixture of heat and herbs and spices. Chillies are just sprinkle on the top of the Thai dishes, to lend color, and flavor. They are also sprinkle on Thai salads in powdered form, to give the salads the touch of hot piquancy. Read more…

Introduction
I remember my father recounting a traditional and ancient Persian poem to me, which he had learned when his grandmother was busy cooking in the kitchen. She was just following ancient traditions, when women from the Mogul times – 14th-century – sang this song for fun in the kitchen, while cooking and amusing their kids at the same time.
The translation from the vernacular goes something like this –
Clove and cardamom – good pals they
Went for a forbidden swim for kicks.
And soon we heard Clove yelling.
“Golly, cardamom has gone for a six ”.
¬ and so on, in more hilarious verses, about how clove would and could not bother to drag the drowning cardamom out of the water, because he would get wet, catch a cold, his momma had told him not to go swimming, and so on! Until cardamom came out of the water and both went home.
Home, meaning the tummy of a gourmet who would appreciate the presence of cloves and cardamom in his delicately seasoned dish.
The Association of cloves and cardamoms have been a part of the lives of spices in the East. Where you put in a couple of ground cloves, you may be asked whether you want to add some more cardamoms in, too. Most often, you say yes, because after all that is going to increase the taste quotient. Cloves also go well with cinnamon, star anise, basil and pepper.

Nevertheless, this book is going to tell you all about the magic of cloves, which has been considered to be one of the most precious spices treasured down the centuries by the West. Wars were fought for cardamoms, cinnamon, pepper and cloves. Trade routes to the Indies, and to the East were jealously guarded by adventurous traders in the West.
Cloves first originated in Indonesia from where traders took them all over the world, in ancient times. In fact, 3000 years ago, a Chinese emperor asked his courtiers to chew ding xiang in order to keep their breath fresh, when they came into his presence.
Apart from its use in medicine, it was, and is also used extensively to add taste, sweetness, and warmth to a dish.
Archaeologists have found traces of cloves in archaeological excavations going back to 1721 BC in Syria. So this shows how long this great and precious spice has been associated with mankind. Read more…

Introduction
The moment you hear the word “nut” you visualize a small, well, nut with a hard shell, which needs to be removed. So how did the coconut get to be called a nut, when it is definitely not a nut, but a drupe?
Whether drupe or nut, the name Coco was given to this native of South America, by Spanish explorers, because they thought that it resembled the face of a monkey [Coco.] In fact, the eyes as well as the hairy appearance of the enough, made them think of a monkey, but in ancient eastern mythology, it was considered to be the face of Lord Shiva the destroyer in Hindu mythology who had three eyes
For generations, the coconut has been considered to be the tree of life, because it has provided people down the ages, with everything they wished. Oil, juice, food to eat in the shape of coconut meat, coconut milk and everything nourishing, which you can get from the coconut is readily available at hand. All you have to do is climb the tree like a Coco and gather coconuts.
Did you know that more than one third of the world subsists on coconuts for survival? Many Countries have based their economies on coconut products. And that is why, in many parts of the East, cutting down the coconut tree is taboo, because of its spiritual, emotional, and traditional associated bond with human beings.
Coconuts are extremely rich in minerals, vitamins and in fiber. Doctors in coastal areas know that they do not have to worry about any harm coming to victims of typhoons and epidemics, as long as they are coconuts around.
Asian, Eastern and Pacific cultures have long use the products of coconut, for healing and curing, especially in alternative medicines. Coconut oil is considered to be the best moisturizer as well as healing base for medical preparations since ancient times. So everything from massaging to conditioning your hair and making beauty cosmetics from coconut have been a part of Eastern, Pacific and Asian culture for millenniums.
The West has finally woken up to the medical and healing potential of the coconut and its products. Thanks to extensive research being done in the UK and in the USA, people have got to know all about the healing power of the coconut. However, it was only when Jennifer Aniston was seen in the supermarket with lots of coconuts, that it began to become really popular in America as a healthy food item. Until then, it was just used as a hair conditioner or a skin moisturizer and in other natural beauty preparations.
Nobody can suffer from malnutrition or dehydration, if you have a coconut tree around.
It is surprising how recently modern research has found out that coconuts are both antiviral and antibacterial. In ancient Eastern medicine, people knew how to cure throat infections, mouth infections, bladder and urinary infections, kidney related diseases, influenza, pneumonia and other diseases caused by bacteria, viruses and fungi for millenniums. In fact, if you had a tree of life in your garden, you would live almost as long as did the tree.
That is because you were eating itself the fruit, which would keep you healthy and with a strong autoimmune system throughout your life. Read more..

Preface
There are dozens of plants out there that nature has gifted with endless bounties.

Known scientifically as origanum vulgare, it belongs to the mint family and belongs originally to the warm to moderate regions of Eurasia and the Mediterranean. Having a height ranging from twenty to eighty centimeters, it is characterized by opposite leaves and flowers that are purple and spike shaped.
Oregano has found uses in kitchens all over the world because of the scented, warm and somewhat bitter flavor of its leaves. The strength of this flavor is variable between the various types of oregano. Its most common use in modern day cooking can be seen in Italian-American foods which was popularized by the way it easily combines with spicy dishes, native to the south of Italy. It also has diverse uses in the cuisines of many other countries. Aside from this, oregano is rich in health imparting compounds that can boost your wellbeing both mentally and physically. Its health benefits were acknowledged by the Greeks and Austrians.
This books will acquaint you with the various health benefits of this amazing herb, whose leaves are as important for medicine as they are for tasty cooking. It will describe all the best ways to utilize oregano and include it in your routine diet. Since it can be grown easily in backyard gardens, this book will also teach you the basics of that.

Introduction
There is a beautiful mythological story of a God in Eastern legend. It seems he was a bit bored with his heavenly abode and decided to go exploring on the earth. Moreover, he kept staying on here, much to the dismay and surprise of all his friends, who missed him when they had feasts of nectar of immortality, and other heavenly delicacies. Therefore, they came hunting for him.
And what did they find? He was sitting in the Hermitage of a saint and dining off fresh milk, butter and buttermilk. Moreover, just like Oliver, he wanted more. So the rest of the gods began to think that there was something here, rather special on this earth, which enticed a God away from Celestial spheres.
Naturally, they demanded the rest of the members of the Hermitage to feed them exactly what that God was having. Yes, that one sitting over there with his hand in the clay earthenware pot, scooping out something white. In an attitude of contemplative and euphoric bliss. Well, yes, he is a God. You did not recognize him? Look at his feet. They do not touch the ground. Oh yes, ours do not touch the ground either. But then we are hungry for what he is eating.
And so the gods discovered butter, and buttermilk, which they decided were the foods of the gods. However, they had to come to earth to eat it. That was because cows, buffaloes, goats and other milk bearing animals did not flourish so much in their lands. But they did on Mother Earth.
Well, we are very lucky in one matter. Being thoroughly earthbound, we can indulge ourselves in butter, butter, milk, milk, and other milk products like cheese, cream cheese, and anything else of which you can think, to our hearts content. And if we have the pure stuff, that is going to help keep us healthy, and fighting fit.
Did you know that Abraham said that it was butter and buttermilk, which gave him his longevity. Also, it was the reason why his tribe members were so fecund, when compared to other tribes. This belief is still held in the East, that a diet of homemade butter, and buttermilk drunk regularly every day keeps you healthy,virile and also potent. Read more…

Introduction – Knowing More about Onions
Is there really Magic in onions, you may say, because according to you, onions are those sharp and pungent smelling, vegetables, which you normally do not allow within smelling distance of your nose and kitchen?
It is possible that you have been brought up with a feeling that onion and garlic – those odoriferous pungent smelling herbs are not acceptable in select circles. Did you know that the United States is the third-largest producer of onions in the world – after China and India, and followed by Egypt, Iran and Turkey.
But then there was a time when onions grew – and still grow – wild all over the lands of the USA and Canada. The Native Americans enjoyed wild onions and the Pilgrim fathers planted the onion plant first and foremost, before corn, on American soil in 1658. That was because they knew a freshly pulled out onion from their garden added this bit of piquancy to their meals.
The onions eaten by men more than 5000 years ago, according to archaeological findings may have been wild onions, but 3000 years ago, Egyptians were writing about cultivated onions and the important part this healing herb played in their food.

Egyptian workers building Khufu’s pyramids ate these onions along with horse radishes in copious quantities 3000 years ago. [Incidentally, they were not slaves. They were free Egyptians. A majority of them were farmers who were asked by Khufu and afterwards Ramses, Soser and other pharaohs to help build pyramids, during the seasons when the Nile was not in flood to help cultivate their fields. So instead of sitting idly in their fields, they glorified in taking part in the building of monuments, which would magnify the pride of Egypt, and their Pharaohs throughout the world.
There were no slave drivers with whips and lashes to make them sweat, whatever Mr. Cecil DeMille may want us to think. The diet of these farmers /pyramid workers was onions with herbs and horse radishes, bread made up of freshly ground corn and beer. They did not mind spending a part of their year building pyramids for their Kings who appreciated their hard work by allowing them grain from the nation’s granaries.]
These Egyptians knew all about the value of onions, and worshiped them as a symbol of eternal life in many circles. Ancient Egyptians had onions placed on their eyes, before embalming or mummifying and burial, so that they could enter the circle of eternal life.
With daily portions of Onions, salt and herbs Roman soldiers were happy!
Roman soldiers also included onions in their diet, especially in the evenings, when they ate onions with red cayenne peppers and the salt they got as salary for the day’s work.
In medieval times, onions were held to be so precious in many parts of the world, that landlords demanded onions as rent in lieu of coin from their tenants. Read more..add-to-cart-click-here

Introduction
Each of us is growing older with every passing moment, and most of us subconsciously have a nagging worry about who is going to take care of us, when we get old or when we are sick. Women, far more than men dread the idea of growing old. That is because they subconsciously have the fear that there will be nobody to take care of them, then they grow comparatively old and helpless. The first adjustment to this idea comes in middle age, with its foreshadowing of old age. This is when middle-aged people begin to think about the next stage of life.

If a woman has devoted her life to being the center of her family, she may look ahead fearfully to the days to come, when her children will be adults and will have flown the nest. If she has a happy married life, she knows that she has her partner, who is going to grow old with her. But unfortunately sometimes it just happens that homes break up and many people find themselves approaching middle age, and future old age, in loneliness. That is when they begin to take good care of their finances so that they have enough of money, which they can utilize when they are old.
Among all the impermanent and threatening shadows of the days to come, a woman may have before her the example of some cantankerous old lady who has become an unloved, and unwelcome burden to her children demanding and less attention from some already hard-pressed daughter-in-law or daughter.
And this condition worsens, if that person is ill. In the East, where the idea of sending parents to an old-age home, is still something of which one thinks of with loathing and abhorrence, nursing of the eldest generation is done at home. Affluent families keep home nurses who are professional. Other not so affluent families take care of the elders, not because it is their duty, but because it is part of the Eastern and Oriental social fabric, coming down the ages.
However, this idea is slowly being eroded in many cities, because the children are more bothered about making money, instead of giving proper care to their elders. The elders also try their best to keep away from under the children’s feet and make sure that they are financially secure. The day of the joint family is slowly and steadily disappearing, when the younger generations used to take care of the older generations.
It is often said by Easterners, that in many countries in the West, they have lost the sense of filial duty, which still exists in so many Latin and Eastern countries. This is where old people are respected and taken into their children’s homes. Westerners are often accused of heartlessness, because so often they send their parents away to live the rest of their lives in an old peoples home. This may be right, but one cannot generalize.
