Haridwar (Uttarakhand): Ailments like piles, skin disease, problems related to the eyes, uterus, leprosy, bleedings and gynaecological problems can be cured through the allopathic route, but did you know that something as natural and simple as Bermuda grass offers equal if not better relief.

"For thousands of years, the medicinal and clinical properties rinsed out of Bermuda grass have been used in Ayurveda and Sidha Medicine," said Acharya Balkrishan of the Haridwar-based Patanjali Ayurvedic.

Sacred to Lord Ganesha, widely revered in the Hindu pantheon of gods and goddesses as the remover of obstacles, the patron of arts and sciences, Lord of intellect and wisdom, Bermuda grass also goes by the name of Durva, Kusha, Doob in Hindi. It is grown in Hindu households where Lord Ganesh or Ganapathi is the worshipped deity.

Acharya Balkrishan has listed the following ways to treat various ailments:

. Piles: Make a paste of the Panchang of the grass and take it with curd. Make paste of leaves and apply on anus. It will be useful for treatment of piles.
