Scientific reason why non-vegetarian food not eat during Shravan month?

Shravana is very devine month because this is when Dakshinayanam (Sun travels towards south), when Adiyogi started walking towards south and became Dakshinamurthy and also he enlightened Saptarshis with fundamentals of yogic science.

But scientifically this is the when Sun rises towards south-east, from this months Sun rays are not strong means bacteria & virus thrive more than in Uttarayana where sun is strong. Our digestion strength slows down and the weather gets cooler & wet which might cause lot of health problems. Non-veg takes 3 times more to digest than vegeterian food so it is stated to avoid non-veg or reduce significantly to avoid any health issues because from animals we get many viral fevers, allergies and other kind of health issues

वैषम्य : Distress

🤔 How it works ⁉

How Antacids such as *ENO works to neutralize acidity.

Acidity is a set of symptoms caused by excess production of acid by the gastric glands of the stomach. Your stomach naturally produces gastric or hydrochloric acid (HCl) to help digest and break down food. Acidity issues arise when there is excess production of this acid due to triggers such as acidic foods, alcohol, dehydration and stress.

When acidity occurs, the excess acid may move up from your stomach to your esophagus. The lining of your stomach with a pH of 1 to 3 is designed as such to withstand a high acidic environment. Your esophagus on the other hand with a pH close to 7 is not, and you may experience symptoms such as a burning sensation in the chest when this pH drops below 4. Other uncomfortable symptoms may include sour taste in the mouth, heaviness and burning sensation in the stomach or throat. Antacids such as ENO work to bring up the pH in your Esophagus to above 3.5 relieving you from acidity.

ENO is made with sodium carbonate, sodium bicarbonate, and citric acid. Its ingredients dissolve quickly to create an effervescent solution which neutralizes stomach acid on contact. And it’s also gentle on the stomach.

Gajendra Moksha : According to the Bhāgavata Purāṇa

It is one of the famous exploits of the god Vishnu. In this episode, Vishnu came down to earth to protect Gajendra, the elephant, from the clutches of a Crocodile, alternatively known as Makara or Huhu, and with Vishnu’s help, Gajendra achieved moksha, or liberation from cycle of birth and death.

There was once an elephant named Gajendra who lived in a garden called Ṛtumat which was created by Varuna. This garden was located on Mount Trikuta, the “Three-Peaked Mountain.” Gajendra ruled over all the other elephants in the herd. One day as usual he went to the lake near by to pick lotus flowers to offer prayer to Lord Vishnu. Suddenly, a crocodile living in the lake attacked Gajendra and caught him by the leg. Gajendra tried for a long time to escape from the crocodile’s clutches. All his family members, relatives and friends gathered around to help him, but in vain. The crocodile simply would not let go. When they realised that ‘death’ had come close to Gajendra, they left him alone. He trumpeted in pain and helplessness until he was hoarse. As the struggle was seemingly endless and when he had spent his last drop of energy, Gajendra called to the god Vishnu to save him, holding a lotus up in the air as an offering.

Hearing his devotee’s call and prayer, Vishnu rushed to the scene. As Gajendra sighted the god coming, he lifted a lotus with his trunk. Seeing this, Vishnu was pleased and with his Sudharshana Chakra, he decapitated the crocodile. Gajendra prostrated himself before the god. Vishnu informed Gajendra that he, in one of his previous births, had been the celebrated King Indradyumna, a devotee of Vishnu, but due to his disrespect to the great Sage Agastya, he had been cursed to be reborn as an elephant. The prayer made by Gajendra on this occasion became a famous hymn in praise of Vishnu called the Gajendra Stuti .

शुक्लांबरधरं विष्णुं शशि वर्णं चतुर्भुजं ।
प्रसन्न वदनं ध्यायेत सर्व विघ्नोपशान्तये॥
