Burning Loban/Benzoin As An Anti-Depressant :

‘Depression’ is a term that too many people are familiar with. Irrespective of gender and age, it can affect anyone. But, what makes it interesting that it is not an external disease that can be treated quickly with application of medicines or antiseptics. Being a mental problem, it requires a lot more care and attention.

In today’s life, when no time is available, people often seek short-term relief measures in the form of allopathy, which is conventional means of consuming drugs that incite symptoms opposite to those of the disorder or disease. Even though these pills are quick and effective, they cause a lot of side effects and after effects which are highly undesirable. Moreover, the body develops resistance against these pills, and with time, it is required to increase dosage, which again, directly correlates to harsher side effects.

Burning Loban/Benzoin as a Medicine:

Ayurvedic and homeopathic medicines are slow to act, but they do not cause any form of side effects. For example, burning of Loban/Benzoin or Frankincense, does wonders in the long run.

According to The Speaking Tree, ‘Loban’ or “Benzoin” is actually extracted from the resin out of the Boswellia tree, which is then further churned into creating oils and incense. As we inhale the incense of Loban/Benzoin, it directly affects the TRPV3 protein in our brain, producing warm sensations on the skin.

Effect Of Loban:

When one comes in contact with the ‘loban’ incense or Benzoin, an anxiolytic effect (to reduce anxiety suffering) is experienced, and the individual feels relaxed and stress-free, with a clear mind. This is the power of burning Loban/Benzoin.

Myrrh oil has similar benefits. Myrrh is a sap-like substance (resin) that comes out of cuts in the bark of trees that are members of the Commiphora species. It should be kept away from sunlight since it becomes unstable under its influence.

Health Benefits of Loban Dhoop:

We do not know but most of the diseases are caused because of insects and other germs in the air. A few insects in the air cannot be seen but they can cause major health problems. The key benefit of Loban Dhoop is that it keeps every germ in the air away from your house whether it is an insect bite or food poisoning. For better effect burn it twice a day.

How To Check, If Your Loban is Pure Or Nor:

The perfect way to check whether the Loban Dhoop is genuine or not is its smell. When you open the box it should give the vanilla aroma. If you smell the same then it is pure.

Currently, when users set up WhatsApp Pay in India, the service only verifies the phone number linked to your bank account to enable UPI-based transactions

Facebook-owned WhatsApp may soon ask users to verify their identity to make payments on the platform. According to XDA Developers, new strings spotted in the latest WhatsApp beta release suggest that the messenger will require users to upload verification documents to continue using payments on WhatsApp. Currently, when users set up WhatsApp Pay in India, the service only verifies the phone number linked to your bank account to enable UPI-based transactions. In Brazil, the messenger uses Facebook Pay to validate users' credit or debit cards to facilitate payments.

At the moment, the service doesn't require users to submit any identity verification documents to make payments. However, that might change soon, the report said. WhatsApp v2.21.22.6 beta includes a few new strings which suggest that users might have to submit identity verification documents to continue using payments.

The identity verification might be limited to those who use WhatsApp Pay to receive payments for their businesses. UPI-based apps, like Google Pay, PhonePe and even WhatsApp Pay don't require users to submit any documents to transfer or receive money. However, wallet apps like PayTM do ask for KYC verification as per RBI guidelines.

WhatsApp is yet to make an official announcement regarding this change. Since the new strings have just made their way to the beta version, it might be a while before the company reveals any details, the report said. (IANS/ MBI)

Practising good nail hygiene involves following a systematic process to ensure the longevity of our nail health.

By Rajesh U. Pandya

Although the world is recovering from coronavirus pandemic, we must not lower our guards and stay alert when it comes to hand hygiene to curb the spread of the deadly virus. But are we paying sufficient attention to our nail hygiene? Our nails are the index of well-being for our entire body. The manifestations of several critical diseases were first detected within the dirty nails.

The ignorance towards our nails becomes the breeding ground of harmful bacteria. These germs enter our body through our hands because in India we eat through our bare hands. Therefore, nail hygiene is crucial and without it hand hygiene is incomplete.

Practising good nail hygiene involves following a systematic process to ensure the longevity of our nail health. It includes ensuring that food particles, dirt and dust are not sticking to our nails and there is no build-up of nail bacteria. Thankfully, contrary to popular belief, it is not that difficult to maintain good nail hygiene. A little diligence, awareness and attention are sufficient to keep our nails healthy.

Avoiding nail hygiene makes you prone to viral infections
Due to constant negligence towards the cleanliness of the nails, many serious issues like bacterial and viral infections arise. Often these lead to serious health problems. Our hand hygiene is not perfect till the time we clean the undersides of our nails besides washing hands regularly. Most people don't mind sharing nail clippers with others. This is however an extremely unhygienic practice. When we don't share any of our personal hygiene products then why do we share our nail clippers? Nails harbour abundant germs, bacteria and viruses and sharing nail clippers is equivalent to exchanging those microorganisms.
