adıyla bilinen renk tedavisi eski Mısır'da Çin'de ve Hindistan'da çok
eskiden beri biliniyordu. Bu tedavi yöntemi insanda bazı renklere ait
merkezler olduğu teorisinden yola çıkmaktadır. Chakra adı verilen bu
merkezler belirli organları yönetir. Bunlar belirli renklerle de uyum
halindedir. Organik veya psikolojik nedenlerden dolayı bu merkezler
görevlerini yapamaz duruma gelince hem idare ettikleri organlarda bazı
hastalık belirtileri görülmeye başlanır hem de uyum halinde bulundukları
renk titreşimleri azalarak bu renge olan ihtiyaçları artar. Kromoterapi
de bu duruma gelen hastaya aksayan chakranın rengiyle ilgili tedavi
uygulanır. Ayrıca bu merkezin uyum hali içinde bulunduğu renkle ilgili
besinler tavsiye edilir. Bazen bu renk merkezi ile ilgili metaller
taşınması da önerilebilir. Tedavi esnasındaki süre kromoterapi uzmanının
tavsiyesine göre yapılır.

Color Therapy - Chromotherapy It
has been known for eons of time that color plays a major role in
setting up a particular mood or state of mind. Color does affect one's
feelings, moods, and emotions. Colors are certain wavelengths of
electro-magnetic energy seen through our eyes. The color we see is the
part of the visible spectrum that is reflected back by a certain
object. We know that when all colors join the result is white
light. Therefore working with White Light brings about completeness,
oneness, union of all complementary parts. Colors affect us in different ways:
Color is one of the languages of the soul, just look at inspired or meditative paintings.
They influence our mood and emotions.
They have their impact on our sense of well-being or un-easiness.
Using and avoiding certain colors is a way of self-expression; it sheds light on our personality.
affect our way of perception (light colors make a space look big, a
high ceiling looks less high when painted in a dark color, etc.)
have a symbolic meaning which is immediately recognized by our
subconsciousness. It must be said that not all colors mean the same to
all persons and all cultures.
They influence the flow and amount of energy in our bodies.
Colors tell something about biological attraction and sexual availability.
examining color and its healing implications, we must address a very
important concept: that of cause and effect. True healing comes about
when the cause of the condition or illness is addressed and
transformed. If healing goes no further than a mere relief or masking
of the symptoms, then, eventually, that which brought about the need
for healing, in the first place, will resurface and manifest itself
within the body in one form or another. Body is an outward
expression of that which is taking place within the mind, the soul
(subconscious) , and the spirit (superconscious) of the individual.
Thus, any healing technique which deals only with the physical body and
the energy field of the individual tends to accomplish one thing: it
jump starts the individual, so to speak, and gives him or her an added
boost of energy. That energy boost then allows that person's own
internal healing mechanism to become mobilized into greater activity. Keeping
this in mind, let us look at how color can help jump-start the tired
or diseased body. Color healing, known as Chromotherapy, can be
implemented in a number of ways. The ancients built great halls of
color healing, where individuals entered and were bathed in light that
was filtered through various colored glass panels or windows. Energy
(spiritual) healers often supplement their healing work with color
healing. As they lay their hands on the patient, they mentally direct
specific color rays into the patient's aura and body. Oftentimes, the
color used is inspired by the superconscious. In healing colors
act as balancers: we administer the color(s) someone needs more of, or
we give the opposite of the color someone has too much of. Color Chart A preference for certain colors can point at two things:
self-expression (you choose the colors which match your personality; for instance green for a lover of harmony and nature)
(you choose the colors you need more of; for instance an active,
passionate person chooses blue colors to cool down his nature).
An aversion against certain colors gives information as well. Possible explanations are given in the chart.

SİZ YA DA HAYATINIZDAKİ KADIN HANGİ KATEGORİYE DAHİL?
The purpose of life ONE
GREAT QUESTION underlies our experience, whether we think about it
consciously or not: What is the purpose of life? I have considered this
question and would like to share my thoughts in the hope that they may
be of direct, practical benefit to those who read them.
believe that the purpose of life is to be happy. From the moment of
birth, every human being wants happiness and does not want suffering.
Neither social conditioning nor education nor ideology affect this.
From the very core of our being, we simply desire contentment. I don't
know whether the universe, with its countless galaxies, stars and
planets, has a deeper meaning or not, but at the very least, it is clear
that we humans who live on this earth face the task of making a happy
life for ourselves. Therefore, it is important to discover what will
bring about the greatest degree of happiness.
How to achieve happiness For
a start, it is possible to divide every kind of happiness and
suffering into two main categories: mental and physical. Of the two, it
is the mind that exerts the greatest influence on most of us. Unless
we are either gravely ill or deprived of basic necessities, our
physical condition plays a secondary role in life. If the body is
content, we virtually ignore it. The mind, however, registers every
event, no matter how small. Hence we should devote our most serious
efforts to bringing about mental peace.
From my own
limited experience I have found that the greatest degree of inner
tranquility comes from the development of love and compassion.
more we care for the happiness of others, the greater our own sense of
well-being becomes. Cultivating a close, warm-hearted feeling for
others automatically puts the mind at ease. This helps remove whatever
fears or insecurities we may have and gives us the strength to cope with
any obstacles we encounter. It is the ultimate source of success in
As long as we live in this world we are bound to
encounter problems. If, at such times, we lose hope and become
discouraged, we diminish our ability to face difficulties. If, on the
other hand, we remember that it is not just ourselves but every one who
has to undergo suffering, this more realistic perspective will
increase our determination and capacity to overcome troubles. Indeed,
with this attitude, each new obstacle can be seen as yet another
valuable opportunity to improve our mind!
Thus we can
strive gradually to become more compassionate, that is we can develop
both genuine sympathy for others' suffering and the will to help remove
their pain. As a result, our own serenity and inner strength will
Our need for love Ultimately,
the reason why love and compassion bring the greatest happiness is
simply that our nature cherishes them above all else. The need for love
lies at the very foundation of human existence. It results from the
profound interdependence we all share with one another. However capable
and skillful an individual may be, left alone, he or she will not
survive. However vigorous and independent one may feel during the most
prosperous periods of life, when one is sick or very young or very old,
one must depend on the support of others.
of course, is a fundamental law of nature. Not only higher forms of
life but also many of the smallest insects are social beings who,
without any religion, law or education, survive by mutual cooperation
based on an innate recognition of their interconnectedness. The most
subtle level of material phenomena is also governed by interdependence.
All phenomena from the planet we inhabit to the oceans, clouds,
forests and flowers that surround us, arise in dependence upon subtle
patterns of energy. Without their proper interaction, they dissolve and
It is because our own human existence is so
dependent on the help of others that our need for love lies at the very
foundation of our existence. Therefore we need a genuine sense of
responsibility and a sincere concern for the welfare of others.
have to consider what we human beings really are. We are not like
machine-made objects. If we are merely mechanical entities, then
machines themselves could alleviate all of our sufferings and fulfill
However, since we are not solely material
creatures, it is a mistake to place all our hopes for happiness on
external development alone. Instead, we should consider our origins and
nature to discover what we require.
Leaving aside the
complex question of the creation and evolution of our universe, we can
at least agree that each of us is the product of our own parents. In
general, our conception took place not just in the context of sexual
desire but from our parents' decision to have a child. Such decisions
are founded on responsibility and altruism - the parents compassionate
commitment to care of their child until it is able to take care of
itself. Thus, from the very moment of our conception, our parents' love
is directly in our creation.
Moreover, we are completely
dependent upon our mothers' care from the earliest stages of our
growth. According to some scientists, a pregnant woman's mental state,
be it calm or agitated, has a direct physical effect on her unborn
The expression of love is also very important at
the time of birth. Since the very first thing we do is suck milk from
our mothers' breast, we naturally feel close to her, and she must feel
love for us in order to feed us properly; if she feels anger or
resentment her milk may not flow freely.
Then there is
the critical period of brain development from the time of birth up to
at least the age of three or four, during which time loving physical
contact is the single most important factor for the normal growth of
the child. If the child is not held, hugged, cuddled, or loved, its
development will be impaired and its brain will not mature properly.
a child cannot survive without the care of others, love is its most
important nourishment. The happiness of childhood, the allaying of the
child's many fears and the healthy development of its self-confidence
all depend directly upon love.
Nowadays, many children
grow up in unhappy homes. If they do not receive proper affection, in
later life they will rarely love their parents and, not infrequently,
will find it hard to love others. This is very sad.
children grow older and enter school, their need for support must be
met by their teachers. If a teacher not only imparts academic education
but also assumes responsibility for preparing students for life, his or
her pupils will feel trust and respect and what has been taught will
leave an indelible impression on their minds. On the other hand,
subjects taught by a teacher who does not show true concern for his or
her students' overall well-being will be regarded as temporary and not
retained for long.
Similarly, if one is sick and being
treated in hospital by a doctor who evinces a warm human feeling, one
feels at ease and the doctors' desire to give the best possible care is
itself curative, irrespective of the degree of his or her technical
skill. On the other hand, if one's doctor lacks human feeling and
displays an unfriendly expression, impatience or casual disregard, one
will feel anxious, even if he or she is the most highly qualified
doctor and the disease has been correctly diagnosed and the right
medication prescribed. Inevitably, patients' feelings make a difference
to the quality and completeness of their recovery.
when we engage in ordinary conversation in everyday life, if someone
speaks with human feeling we enjoy listening, and respond accordingly;
the whole conversation becomes interesting, however unimportant the
topic may be. On the other hand, if a person speaks coldly or harshly,
we feel uneasy and wish for a quick end to the interaction. From the
least to the most important event, the affection and respect of others
are vital for our happiness.
Recently I met a group of
scientists in America who said that the rate of mental illness in their
country was quite high-around twelve percent of the population. It
became clear during our discussion that the main cause of depression
was not a lack of material necessities but a deprivation of the
affection of the others.
So, as you can see from
everything I have written so far, one thing seems clear to me: whether
or not we are consciously aware of it, from the day we are born, the
need for human affection is in our very blood. Even if the affection
comes from an animal or someone we would normally consider an enemy,
both children and adults will naturally gravitate towards it.
believe that no one is born free from the need for love. And this
demonstrates that, although some modern schools of thought seek to do
so, human beings cannot be defined as solely physical. No material
object, however beautiful or valuable, can make us feel loved, because
our deeper identity and true character lie in the subjective nature of
Developing compassion Some
of my friends have told me that, while love and compassion are
marvelous and good, they are not really very relevant. Our world, they
say, is not a place where such beliefs have much influence or power.
They claim that anger and hatred are so much a part of human nature that
humanity will always be dominated by them. I do not agree.
humans have existed in our present form for about a hundred-thousand
years. I believe that if during this time the human mind had been
primarily controlled by anger and hatred, our overall population would
have decreased. But today, despite all our wars, we find that the human
population is greater than ever. This clearly indicates to me that love
and compassion predominate in the world. And this is why unpleasant
events are news, compassionate activities are so much part of daily life
that they are taken for granted and, therefore, largely ignored.
far I have been discussing mainly the mental benefits of compassion,
but it contributes to good physical health as well, According to my
personal experience, mental stability and physical well-being are
directly related. Without question, anger and agitation make us more
susceptible to illness. On the other hand, if the mind is tranquil and
occupied with positive thoughts, the body will not easily fall prey to
But of course it is also true that we all have an
innate self-centeredness that inhibits our love for others. So, since
we desire the true happiness that is brought about by only a calm mind,
and since such peace of mind is brought about by only a compassionate
attitude, how can we develop this? Obviously, it is not enough for us
simply to think about how nice compassion is! We need to make a
concerted effort to develop it; we must use all the events of our daily
life to transform our thoughts and behavior.
all, we must be clear about what we mean by compassion. Many forms of
compassionate feeling are mixed with desire and attachment. For
instance, the love parents feel of their child is often strongly
associated with their own emotional needs, so it is not fully
compassionate. Again, in marriage, the love between husband and wife -
particularly at the beginning, when each partner still may not know the
other's deeper character very well - depends more on attachment than
genuine love. Our desire can be so strong that the person to whom we are
attached appears to be good, when in fact he or she is very negative.
In addition, we have a tendency to exaggerate small positive qualities.
Thus when one partner's attitude changes, the other partner is often
disappointed and his or her attitude changes too. This is an indication
that love has been motivated more by personal need than by genuine care
for the other individual.
True compassion is not just an
emotional response but a firm commitment founded on reason. Therefore,
a truly compassionate attitude towards others does not change even if
they behave negatively.
Of course, developing this kind of compassion is not at all easy! As a start, let us consider the following facts: Whether
people are beautiful and friendly or unattractive and disruptive,
ultimately they are human beings, just like oneself. Like oneself, they
want happiness and do not want suffering. Furthermore, their right to
overcome suffering and be happy is equal to one's own. Now, when you
recognize that all beings are equal in both their desire for happiness
and their right to obtain it, you automatically feel empathy and
closeness for them. Through accustoming your mind to this sense of
universal altruism, you develop a feeling of responsibility for others:
the wish to help them actively overcome their problems. Nor is this
wish selective; it applies equally to all. As long as they are human
beings experiencing pleasure and pain just as you do, there is no
logical basis to discriminate between them or to alter your concern for
them if they behave negatively.
Let me emphasize that it
is within your power, given patience and time, to develop this kind of
compassion. Of course, our self-centeredness, our distinctive
attachment to the feeling of an independent, self-existent ï¿½Iï¿½,
works fundamentally to inhibit our compassion. Indeed, true compassion
can be experienced only when this type of self- grasping is eliminated.
But this does not mean that we cannot start and make progress now.
How can we start We
should begin by removing the greatest hindrances to compassion: anger
and hatred. As we all know, these are extremely powerful emotions and
they can overwhelm our entire mind. Nevertheless, they can be
controlled. If, however, they are not, these negative emotions will
plague us - with no extra effort on their part! - and impede our quest
for the happiness of a loving mind.
So as a start, it is
useful to investigate whether or not anger is of value. Sometimes, when
we are discouraged by a difficult situation, anger does seem helpful,
appearing to bring with it more energy, confidence and determination.
though, we must examine our mental state carefully. While itis true
that anger brings extra energy, if we explore the nature of this
energy, we discover that it is blind: we cannot be sure whether its
result will be positive or negative. This is because anger eclipses the
best part of our brain: its rationality. So the energy of anger is
almost always unreliable. It can cause an immense amount of destructive,
unfortunate behavior. Moreover, if anger increases to the extreme, one
becomes like a mad person, acting in ways that are as damaging to
oneself as they are to others.
It is possible, however, to
develop an equally forceful but far more controlled energy with which
to handle difficult situations.
This controlled energy
comes not only from a compassionate attitude, but also from reason and
patience. These are the most powerful antidotes to anger.
Unfortunately, many people misjudge these qualities as signs of
weakness. I believe the opposite to be true: that they are the true
signs of inner strength. Compassion is by nature gentle, peaceful and
soft, but it is very powerful. It is those who easily lose their
patience who are insecure and unstable. Thus, to me, the arousal of
anger is a direct sign of weakness.
So, when a problem
first arises, try to remain humble and maintain a sincere attitude and
be concerned that the outcome is fair. Of course, others may try to
take advantage of you, and if your remaining detached only encourages
unjust aggression, adopt a strong stand, This, however, should be done
with compassion, and if it is necessary to express your views and take
strong countermeasures, do so without anger or ill-intent. You
should realize that even though your opponents appear to be harming
you, in the end, their destructive activity will damage only themselves.
In order to check your own selfish impulse to retaliate, you should
recall your desire to practice compassion and assume responsibility for
helping prevent the other person from suffering the consequences of his
or her acts.
Thus, because the measures you employ have
been calmly chosen, they will be more effective, more accurate and more
forceful. Retaliation based on the blind energy of anger seldom hits
Friends and enemies I
must emphasize again that merely thinking that compassion and reason
and patience are good will not be enough to develop them. We must wait
for difficulties to arise and then attempt to practice them.
who creates such opportunities? Not our friends, of course, but our
enemies. They are the ones who give us the most trouble, So if we truly
wish to learn, we should consider enemies to be our best teacher!
a person who cherishes compassion and love, the practice of tolerance
is essential, and for that, an enemy is indispensable. So we should
feel grateful to our enemies, for it is they who can best help us
develop a tranquil mind! Also, itis often the case in both personal and
public life, that with a change in circumstances, enemies become
So anger and hatred are always harmful, and
unless we train our minds and work to reduce their negative force, they
will continue to disturb us and disrupt our attempts to develop a calm
mind. Anger and hatred are our real enemies. These are the forces we
most need to confront and defeat, not the temporary enemies who appear
intermittently throughout life.
Of course, it is natural
and right that we all want friends. I often joke that if you really
want to be selfish, you should be very altruistic! You should take good
care of others, be concerned for their welfare, help them, serve them,
make more friends, make more smiles, The result? When you yourself
need help, you find plenty of helpers! If, on the other hand, you
neglect the happiness of others, in the long term you will be the
loser. And is friendship produced through quarrels and anger, jealousy
and intense competitiveness? I do not think so. Only affection brings
us genuine close friends.
In today's materialistic
society, if you have money and power, you seem to have many friends.
But they are not friends of yours; they are the friends of your money
and power. When you lose your wealth and influence, you will find it
very difficult to track these people down.
The trouble is
that when things in the world go well for us, we become confident that
we can manage by ourselves and feel we do not need friends, but as our
status and health decline, we quickly realize how wrong we were. That
is the moment when we learn who is really helpful and who is completely
useless. So to prepare for that moment, to make genuine friends who
will help us when the need arises, we ourselves must cultivate
altruism! Though sometimes people laugh when I say it, I myself
always want more friends. I love smiles. Because of this I have the
problem of knowing how to make more friends and how to get more smiles,
in particular, genuine smiles. For there are many kinds of smile, such
as sarcastic, artificial or diplomatic smiles. Many smiles produce no
feeling of satisfaction, and sometimes they can even create suspicion
or fear, can't they? But a genuine smile really gives us a feeling of
freshness and is, I believe, unique to human beings. If these are the
smiles we want, then we ourselves must create the reasons for them to
Compassion and the world In
conclusion, I would like briefly to expand my thoughts beyond the
topic of this short piece and make a wider point: individual happiness
can contribute in a profound and effective way to the overall
improvement of our entire human community.
Because we all
share an identical need for love, it is possible to feel that anybody
we meet, in whatever circumstances, is a brother or sister. No matter
how new the face or how different the dress and behavior, there is no
significant division between us and other people. It is foolish to
dwell on external differences, because our basic natures are the same.
humanity is one and this small planet is our only home, If we are to
protect this home of ours, each of us needs to experience a vivid sense
of universal altruism. It is only this feeling that can remove the
self-centered motives that cause people to deceive and misuse one
If you have a sincere and open heart, you
naturally feel self- worth and confidence, and there is no need to be
fearful of others.
I believe that at every level of
society - familial, tribal, national and international - the key to a
happier and more successful world is the growth of compassion. We do
not need to become religious, nor do we need to believe in an ideology.
All that is necessary is for each of us to develop our good human
I try to treat whoever I meet as an old friend. This gives me a genuine feeling of happiness. It is the practice of compassion.
Health Benefits of Cumin The
health benefits of cumin include digestion, piles, insomnia,
respiratory disorders, asthma, bronchitis, common cold, lactation,
anemia, skin disorders, boils, immunity, and cancer.
of you might remember having hated those curries and soups which had
roasted or friedcumin seeds in them, when you were kids, because they
looked like small black insects. However, you liked the taste. So your
Moms would sort them out before she served you. Cumin,
scientifically known as Cuminum Cyminum, belongs to family Apiaceae and
is extensively used in culinary in Indian Subcontinent and some other
Asian, African and Latin American countries, as a condiment or spice.
Those who are of the opinion that spices are bad for health should note
that cumin can be beneficial for some of their most dreaded diseases,
beyond their expectations. Let’s see how. The health benefits of cumin include the following:
is extremely good for digestion and related problems. The very smell
(aroma) of it, which comes from an aromaticorganic compound called
Cuminaldehyde, the main component of its essential oil, activates our
salivary glands in our mouth (the mouth watering flavor), facilitating
the primary digestion of the food. Next is Thymol, a compound present in
cumin, which does same to the glands which secrete acids, bile and
enzymes responsible for complete digestion of the foodin the stomach and
the intestines, due to its Stimulating properties. Cumin is also
Carminative i.e. relieves from you from gastroubles and thereby improves
digestion and appetite. Due to its essential
oils, magnesium andsodium content, it promotes digestion and also gives
relief in stomach-ache when taken with hot water(like aqua ptycotis
Piles: The main reason behind piles
is constipation added with infections in the wound in the anal tract,
which again is caused by constipation. Cumin, because of its
dietary fiber content and carminative, stimulating, anti fungal and anti
microbial properties due to the presence of essential oils comprising
mainly of Cuminaldehyde and certain pyrazines, acts as a natural
laxative in powdered form, helps healing up of infections or wounds in
the digestive & excretory system and speeds up digestion too. What
else a patient of piles would want?
is a very peculiar property of cumin. It is a stimulant as well as a
relaxant at the same time. This property cannot be attributed to a
single component alone, just as causes of insomnia cannot be attributed
to a single cause. But studies show that a proper intake of vitamins
(particularly B-complex) and a good digestion help induce a sound sleep.
Cumin helps both of these. Some of the components of the essential
oil are hypnotic in nature and have tranquilizing effects.
Respiratory Disorders, Asthma, Bronchitis etc. Presence
of caffeine (the stimulating agent), the richly aromatic essential oils
(the disinfectants) make cumin an ideal anti congestive combination for
those suffering from respiratory disorders such as Asthma, Bronchitis
Common Cold: Common Cold is a viral
infection which affects our body frequently when our immune system goes
weak. Again, the essential oils present in cumin act as disinfectants
and help fight viral infections which cause common cold. Cumin also does
not let cough formation in the respiratory system as it is supposed to
be hot and dries up the excess mucus. Cumin is rich in iron and has
considerable amount of vitamin-C, which are essential for a good
immunity and keeps infections away.
is rich in iron and thus very good for lactating mothers as well as
women who are undergoing menses or who are pregnant, since they are more
in need of iron than others. Moreover, cumin is said to help ease and
increase secretion of milk in lactating women due to presence of Thymol,
which tends to increase secretions from glands, including milk which is
a secretion from mammary glands. It is more beneficial if taken
with honey. Cumin has remarkable amount of calcium (above 900 mg per 100
grams) which accounts to over 90% of our daily requirement of calcium.
This calcium is an important constituent of milk and hence cumin is very
good for lactating mothers.
Anemia: As stated
above, cumin is very rich in iron (above 66 mg. in each 100 grams) which
is more than 5 times the daily requirement of iron for an adult. This
iron is the main constituent of haemoglobin in the red blood corpuscles
of blood. It is haemoglobin which transfers oxygen (as oxide of iron) to
the body-cells and whose deficiency causes anemia. So, cumin can be a
nutritious additive to daily diet for anemic people.
Skin Disorders: Almost
all of us know that vitamin-E is good for skin. It keeps the skin young
and glowing. This vitamin is also present in abundance in cumin. The
essential oils present in this have disinfectant and anti fungal
properties. This prevents any microbial and fungal infection from
affecting the skin.
Boils: Boils are just
outlets for removal of toxic substances and foreign matters such as
microbes etc. from the body. So, they are rather symptoms which show
that a lot of toxic substances have accumulated in the body. Here cumin
can help you a great deal. Those who regularly use cumin in food have
been seen keeping free from boils, rashes, pimples etc. Components such
as Cuminaldehyde, Thymol, phosphorus etc. are good de-toxicants which
help in the regular removal of toxins from body, through excretory
system of course, and not through boils.
discussed above, abundance of iron, presence of essential oils and
vitamin-C & vitamin-A in cumin boosts up our immune system.
itself has detoxifying and chemo-preventive properties and accelerates
secretion of detoxifying and anti-carcinogenic enzymes from the glands,
as it does to other secretions. As well as, it has nice anti oxidants
like vitamin-C and vitamin-A in it, in addition to those essential oils,
which, besides having countless other benefits, have anti carcinogenic
properties too. It is particularly good forcancer of colon.
Other benefits: More
gifts! Cumin is also beneficial in treating renal coli, weak memory or
lack of concentration, insect bites and sting etc. So, check it out!
LATİNCE İSMİ: Pimpinella anisum YÖRESEL İSİMLRİ: Enison, nanahan TANIMI:Maydanozgillerden
bin bitkinin küçük tohumlarıdır.Yurdumuzda Akdeniz bölgesinde,Rusya’da
ve Akdeniz ülkelerinde çok yetişir.Anasonun tohumları çok
küçük,yeşilimtrak tatlı ve baharatlıdır. BİTKİ ÖZELLİKLERİ: Küçük beyaz çiçekli, 30-60cm yükseklikte, tüylü, bir yıllık bir kültür bitkisidir. Doğada aramamak gerekir. KULLANILDIĞI
YERLER:Bazı tatlı ve tuzlu hamur işlerinin üzerine ekilerek
kullanılır.Tıpta da,sindirim bozukluklarına ve barsak gazının
giderilmesinde kullanılır.Koku vermek ve çeşniyi arttırmak amacıyla
yiyecek ve içeceklere ilave edilir.Hamur işlerine pişmeden önce
serpilir.İçeceklerin hazırlanması sırasında kullanılır.. BİLEŞİMİ:
Herkesin tanıdığı, hoş, aromatik bir kokusu vardır. Genelde %2-4
oranında değişen uçucu yağdan kaynaklanır bu koku. Anethol, uçucu yağın
ana maddesidir. Ayrıca şeker ve albümin de içerir. TOPLANMASI ve HAZIRLANMASI: Bir kültür bitkisi olan anasonun doğada aranmasına gerek yoktur. Baharatçılardan satın alınabilir. KULLANIM
ŞEKİLLERİ: Anason öncelikle gaz söktürücü, mideyi güçlendirici ve
öksürüğü yatıştırıcı olarak kullanılmalıdır. Sürekli hıçkırıklarda bir
bardak anason çayı denenebilir. İştah açıcı, mideyi rahatlatıcı,
yatıştırıcı ve sindirimi kolaylaştırıcı olarak kullanılabilir.
Uykusuzluğa karşı da denenebilir. Bebeklere ve küçük çocuklara gaz
sıkıntılarında ve öksürüklerde anason çayı içirilmelidir. Tadı ve kokusu
hoş olmayan bitki çaylarına veya bitkisel kaynaklı ilaçlara aroma
katkısı olarak da kullanılabilir. Anason çayı, yeterli olmayan anne

yararlarından söz edilmişti. Evet, anason bu alanda oldukça
rahatlatıcıdır, ama frenk kimyonu ondan da etkilidir. Öksürük
tedavisinde de, anasondan önce rezene gelir. Belki anason etkinlik
açısından bu iki bitkinin gerisinde kalabilir, ama onun öne çıkan
özelliği de, tadının çok iyi olmasıdır. Bu nedenle, yetişkinler ve
çocuklar için mide şişkinliği ve gazına karşı hazırlanacak çaylarda, bu
üç bitkinin eşit oranda karıştırılarak kullanılması çok daha yararlı
olacaktır. Anason çayı: Havanda hafifçe ezilmiş 1-2 çay kaşığı
dolusu anason, 1 bardak kaynar suyla haşlanır ve demlenmesi için 8-10
dakika beklendikten sonra süzülür. Öksürüğe karşı, günde 2-4 bardak çay,
bal ile tatlandırılarak içilir. Mide şişkinliğine karşı yine günde 2-3
bardak çay, tatlandırılmadan içilmelidir. Anasonun havanda hafifçe ezme
işlemi, her çay demlenmesinde taze olarak yapılmalıdır. ANASONUN
