Smoking! What! I am talking of Ayurvedic Smoking, i.e. we inhale the smoke from Ayurvedic Herbs, only through our Nose (Gaumay Dhoop would do the trick!). This will prevent any onset of diseases for the body parts above shoulder, due Vitiation of Kapha & Vata. The inhaling also cures the diseases which have already arisen! Again. This may be Mild (For Vata), Medium (For Vata & Kapha together), and Strong (For Kapha).
The inhaled smoke should be exhaled only through the mouth, if done so through nose, it results in loss of vision.
