Product Description

Laksha has been used in Shaka Vansya Ayurveda since ancient times as a means to help heal the nerves and to bind deep toxins in the body.

Laksha is not an herb, but is a resin created when the laccifer lacca (lac beetle) attaches itself to certain trees and sucks the sap. The substance that this insect excretes is called laksha, or lac.  It is also known as the raw material for shellac.

The value of this dravya (ayurvedic substance) lies in is its ability to penetrate into the deep tissues of the body (tuvera) and its ability to bind toxins (snigdha). Laksha is also described by Bhava Prakash, one of Ayurveda's Sanskrit source texts, to be cooling (himavalya), or at least anushna (not heating), which is helpful when removing highly acidic toxins that come from the bone marrow and nerve tissues.

The Advantage Of Laksha In Herbal Memory Nectar Form

If you are familiar with Vaidya Mishra's Herbal Memory Nectar formulations, you know that they contain only the sukshma bhag (subtlest fraction) of the herb along with its prabhavas (special vibrational properties). This is especially useful in the case of laksha because it allows for thevibration to very quickly reach the deep tissues of the body.

Whenever you use a physical herb, like lakshaya powder, it must go through the digestive and metabolic processes, which takes time. When the sukshma bhag (subtlest fraction) of the herb is used instead, as in Lakshaya Herbal Memory Nectar, it does not need to be digested. The vibration and micro-molecules of the herb go directly to the places in the body where they are needed without involving the digestive or metabolic systems.

This can be a powerful shortcut when dealing with deep tissue toxins, especially if the digestion and metabolism are sluggish. In fact, it is quite probable that chronic slow digestion (low agni) is associated with deep tissue toxins and, in many cases, it may actually be the root cause of those toxins.

When agni is compromised, as is the case for most people living a modern lifestyle, the effectiveness of herbs like laksha is increased when taken in Herbal Memory Nectar form, as compared to the raw herb.

Laksha Helps Address The Root Cause of Herpes According to Ayurveda

There are many forms and causes of herpes (visarpa in Sanskrit) but, according to Ayurveda, the most common cause is deep toxins coming out of the majja dhatu (bone marrow). These old toxins (amavisha or garavisha) are highly acidic and reactive.

When they come out of the bone marrow they cause a lot of damage to the tissues and nerves, and cause a lot of pain in the process. According to Ayurveda, this sets the stage for a secondary infection by the herpes virus.

According to Ayurveda, killing the virus is not enough. The toxins must also be removed if the symptoms are to be prevented from reoccurring. Lakshaya Herbal Memory Nectar reaches quickly to the bone marrow toxins and begins to pacify and bind the toxins right away.

This is not a substitute for conventional treatment, as the viral infection must also be addressed, but this ancient Ayurvedic herb may be helpful for removing the underlying cause of the symptoms.

Laksha Is Also Helpful For Repairing Damaged Nerves According The Ancient Texts

Bhava Prakash as well as India's great epic, The Mahabharata, report the use of laksha for healing wounds (vranorakshatapaha). It was used for external battle wounds, and is used for internal wounds caused by amavisha (reactive toxins). It is especially good for wounds to the nerves (snayu).

Using Lakshaya Herbal Memory Nectar to heal wounds to the myelin sheath has been effective in some cases by Dr. Marianne Teitelbaum.

In multiple sclerosis, autoimmune toxins (amavisha) damage the myelin sheaths of the nerves. According to Ayurveda, laksha is able to bind those specific toxins and facilitate the healing process of the nerves.
