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.

Types of Loban Dhoop

There are different Loban Dhoop Products in the market;

  • Amber Loban used in the spiritual ceremonies.
  • Loban Dhoop used in spiritual ceremonies keeps insects away and used in medical applications as well.
  • Loban Agarbathi used in spiritual ceremonies.
  • Loban powder, burn it in the place of Loban Dhoop and it has the same effect.

    This will be of great help to all depression patients as taking allopathic medicines also had some side effects. This is free from all side effects.

  • Vrushali Mahajan

    Using such anti-depressant techniques make a person healthy from within too without any kind of side effects. Such methods should be promoted and used often by psychiatrists and people who deal with patients needing anti-depressants

  • Dorkus Maximus

    Depression is a serious medical condition that needs serious discussion. As someone who takes care of a depressed person, I can say this article is non-sense.

  • According to the researchers, the stress changes the father’s sperm which can then alter the brain development of the child
  • Research found that the father’s sperm showed changes in a genetic material known as microRNA

Fathers, take note! Taking too much stress may affect the brain development of your kids, a new study has claimed.

According to the researchers, the stress changes the father’s sperm which can then alter the brain development of the child.

This new research provides a much better understanding of the key role that fathers play in the brain development of their kids, the researchers said.

Previously, the researchers including Tracy Bale at the University of Maryland School found that adult male mice, experiencing chronic periods of mild stress, have offspring with a reduced response to stress; changes in stress reactivity have been linked to some neuropsychiatric disorders, including depression and PTSD.

They isolated the mechanism of the reduced response; they found that the father’s sperm showed changes in a genetic material known as microRNA.

MicroRNA are important because they play a key role in which genes become functional proteins.

Now, the researchers have unravelled new details about these microRNA changes.

In the male reproductive tract, the caput epididymis, the structure where sperm matures, releases tiny vesicles packed with microRNA that can fuse with sperm to change its cargo delivered to the egg, they said.

The caput epididymis responded to the father’s stress by altering the content of these vesicles, the researchers added.

The result of the study, presented at AAAS 2018 annual meeting in Austin, suggests that even mild environmental challenges can have a significant impact on the development and potentially the health of future offspring.
