Rudraksha – Its use and benefits
The brick-red coloured dried berry of the Rudraksha tree (Elaeocarpus GanitrusRoxb) has played a dominant role on the Indian arena for a long time now. Rudra(terrible) aksha (eye), the name connotes the effect of the seed on evil and itsconcomitants. According to Hindu mythology, Lord Shiva used a fire weapon calledAaghor to kill Tripura Sur, the troublesome demon.

Places on earth where theteardrops fell sprouted Rudraksha trees.It is been proved beyond doubt that Rudraksha cures many illnesses including thoserelated to blood pressure and heart. So powerful are the Rudraksha's protectivepowers that it can actually protect the wearer from untimely death. Ancient sagesmaintained that Rudraksha provides peace and tranquility.

Necessary precautions before wearing Rudraksha:
Duplicate Rudrakshas made from cardboard are flooding the market and hence it iscrucial to ensure that one wears a genuine Rudraksha. It would be ideal if one couldpurchase the Rudraksha from a known source. Here are a few tests to detect forfalse beads that could be passed off as genuine:
• A fake Rudraksha will float in water. A real one on the other hand will settle at thebottom.
• Do not wear a Rudraksha that has been eaten by insects and pests.
Scientific evidence of Rudraksha's benefits
Wearing a Rudraksha is known to cure ailments like blood pressure, stress, anxiety, depression, palpitations, lack of concentration, etc. The bead enhances the powers of concentration, orients the mind towards attaining prosperity, boost confidence and energy levels, and is also known to increase the ability of speculative thinking.
While some may contend that what is mentioned in ancient texts need not be a source of authentic knowledge, there is scientific evidence to validate Rudraksha's beneficial powers. The Rudraksha has strong electrical and magnetic properties. Besides storing electrical energy, a Rudraksha can send out subtle electrical impulses and induce vibrations.
To understand the functioning of the Rudraksha, one must understand the working of the human body the central nervous system, organ systems etc that form a part of the bio electronic circuit. Sense organs respond to impulses like touch, smell, noise, sight and taste as a result of bioelectricity. Bioelectricity transmits information from the brain to various parts of the body and vice versa. The bioelectric current is generated because of the different energy levels that exist at various levels in the body.
So long as the bioelectricity flow between the body, mind and brain is smooth, bodily functions are `normal'. The moment there is stress in this flow of energy the body starts malfunctioning.
It is here that Rudraksha beads come to play a dominant role - that of a stabilizing anchor.
Rudraksha beads have a strong influence on our well being, and affect areas mentioned below:
Specific Rudraksha beads resist the flow of bio-electrical impulses that cross the desired ampere requirement (leading to an imbalance in the brain-body-mind circuit). The beads act in tandem with the heart, streamlining it and sending out specific impulses to the brain. The impulses in return generate positive brain chemicals that induce us with a sense of confidence and energy.
Electric energy can be stored in Rudraksha beads making them a safe stabilizing agent. This property of the Rudraksha makes it useful for controlling hyperactivity, palpitation, etc. The excess energy is stored in the bead thereby normalizing the bio-electric flow.
Rudraksha beads contain magnetic properties and hence send out inductive vibrations. This is the reason why people report of feeling better after wearing the bead (even if the bead does not touch them).
Rudraksha beads have dynamic polarity (i.e. the ability to change polarity). The flow of blood that is blocked or reduced results in various illnesses and ailments. The cells in the blood as also arteries and veins have positive and negative poles. When magnets are pressed into action to restore the imbalance the opposite poles of the magnet and that of the cells are attracted and open up contracted passages. Once blood flow is streamlined most illness are automatically cured. However magnets have a limited use, in the sense that they have fixed polarity, Rudraksha beads on the other hand have dynamic polarity and guarantee total cure for a problem. Not only do Rudrakshas possess dynamic polarity they are also endowed with a quality called diamagnetism, ie. the ability to acquire temporary magnetic field in the presence of an external magnetic field. Depending on the polarity of the induced magnetic field, Rudraksha beads acquire a polarity opposite to the induced field. This results in the opening up of arteries and veins leading to a better health.
