A lot have been heard about the medical properties of Rudraksha beads. One of the uses in Ayurvedic healing is in the treatment of high blood pressure. This is how it is done. We need a good quality 5 facets Rudraksha beads. Good quality means the bead must look and feel solid when we handle it. The vertical grooves on the seed must be well defined and the ridges on both side of the line should be well formed. There must be no sign of insect attack and the bigger seed is preferred over the smaller beads for this purpose. I have seen one the size of the ping pong ball and the ownner has zealously shown me and kept it in a nice wooden box. Put the bead in a glass of water and leave it over night. The next morning take out the seed dry and keep it in a box. The water is ready for consumption. Western medication should be continued as usual.
