How eating millets can boost your immunity

Let’s begin with a small quiz.

Do you know what was the staple grain of India a few decades back?

You would be surprised to know it was the humble millets. One-third of the world’s population consumes millets regularly, but not many are aware of the many health benefits of this grain/

The Green Revolution in the 1960s changed the course of dietary preferences as people moved away from traditional food grains. Millets were seen to be primitive foods, which only the poor ate.

But the small, humble grains are finally getting their due as super food and power house of immunity.

Millets are now on the verge of becoming superstars of nutrition. Millets are a rich source of a wide variety of micro-nutrients such as calcium, thiamin and magnesium. It is the presence of these micro-nutrients that support the immune system in these times of the Coronavirus pandemic that is shaking the whole world.

Millets are a good source of protein, high dietary fibre, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and micronutrients.

In addition to their curative properties in reversing diabetes, PCOD, thyroid, obesity, constipation, migraine and several other ailments, millets does a world of good in boosting your immunity.

Millets have been around for centuries but we’ve ditched them for the less nutrient and cancer-causing polished rice and wheat.

Bangalore based independent scientist Dr Khader Valli, who has done extensive research on millets, dispels the lie of the food industry in pushing rice and wheat as wholesome grains.

Dr Valli and several experts in the field of nutrition have exposed the truth behind the food grains that we’ve adopted since Green Revolution. Rice and wheat are the root cause of major ailments in the modern times. Even children are not spared from these deadly diseases.

Ever wondered why there were not so many cancer patients or people suffering from obesity or other lifestyle diseases so prevalent a few decades back?

We’ve been eating carb-loaded food grains. Studies have shown that when millets were our staple grain, people were healthy and lifestyle diseases were unheard of.

So where do millets score over rice and wheat?

The gluten-free millets are loaded with fibre and less carbs unlike rice, wheat, corn, maize and whole lot of other food grains that we’ve got used to eating.

Many people across the globe have realised the benefits of millets and switched to this super food and have been cured of a host of diseases

You would be surprised to know millets comprised about 40 per cent of all cultivated grains in India before the Green Revolution robbed them of their profile.

But due to efforts by nutritionists in India and around the world, millets are gaining prominence as healthy food grain. It is no more considered as ‘poor man’s food grain’.

The demand for millets has grown tremendously and the farmers are trying their best to meet the demand. Efforts are being made to educate farmers about better millet growing techniques.

These crops can be grown even in a barren patch of land as they require very little water and no fertilisers or pesticides.

What are the benefits of millets?

Thanks to our changing lifestyle and stress, these days even young people around the world are suffering from hypertension.

Studies have shown that magnesium and potassium in a variety of millets lower blood pressure.

Millets also contain phosphorous, Vitamin E and B complex, iron and copper, which promote the production of blood cells.

“We have proved that thousands of people have got rid of their HIV, cancer and other diseases by eating millets,” says Dr Valli. “Several thousands of cases of diabetes, cholesterol, lupus, arthritis, rheumatism, psoriasis and all these so-called auto immune diseases have been cured with our procedure within a matter of six months to one year. There are no conditions which cannot be cured when you stop eating rice and wheat and switch to millets.”

Nutritionists have realised regulation of glucose is the root of all diseases and figured out only millets have the capacity to regulate it. Millets release glucose slowly and steadily into blood.

Research has shown that thousands of people have got rid of their HIV, cancer and other diseases by eating millets.

Several thousands of cases of diabetes, cholesterol, lupus, arthritis, rheumatism, psoriasis and auto immune diseases have also been cured in a matter of six months to one year after switching to millets.
