A. Mother’s breast milk helps build immunity which is so important for a child’s health, so we do not recommend weaning a baby. Instead, Immunity Booster remedy can be given to the mother to protect both the mother and the child. Based on studies and tests, WHO encourages breastfeeding by COVID positive mothers; in most of the cases they did not find viral load in breast milk.

Q2. As advised in vol 7 #2, I have been washing fruits and vegetables in freshwater after soaking them in salt and vinegar solution for 20 minutes. Kindly advise in the present extraordinary situation of COVID-19, if I should take any extra precautions to handle fruits, vegetables, and other groceries?
A. COVID-19 spreads through person to person contact or inhalation of droplets emanating from an infected person or by touching a contaminated surface. Outside the human body, virus disintegrates in a matter of a few hours to a couple of days, depending on the surface type. If you had fresh produce or groceries delivered recently, leave them aside for several hours. In any case, wash your hands with soap after handling groceries delivered/purchased. It has been established that the virus degrades rapidly outside the body. Regardless of surface type half of the viral particles die within hours, not days. Also, take note that cooking kills the virus on the food. For more details, see https://medical.mit.edu/covid-19-updates/2020/06/can-i-get-virus-grocery-delivery
Q3. What is the importance of prayer in treating a disease?
A. The importance of prayer lies in invoking God’s grace in the process of healing. Swami says God’s grace is like rain which is showered on everyone equally. If our vessels are turned upside down, we cannot receive any rain. Prayer is like turning the vessel to catch the rain. A patient, due to mental agitation caused by disease, may not be in a position to focus on praying. In this situation, a practitioner’s prayer done with firm faith and pure love for the patient becomes a powerful tool in healing. A triangle is formed where the practitioner receives grace from God and it is passed on to the patient. The patient should be advised to pray at least when taking the remedy.
“Do not consider prayer and meditation as the pastime of ‘freaks, geeks, and cracks’. Hold fast to them, for they alone can save you from ruin”…Sri Sathya Sai Baba - Divine Discourse, 25 Nov 1964.
Q4. I used to practice Magnet therapy before I joined vibrionics. Is it okay to store the magnets in the same cupboard as I keep the 108CC Box?
A. Do not keep the two together. Though all remedies in the 108CC box are protected from electromagnetic radiation by the addition of NM45 Atomic Radiation + SR324 X-Ray, it is highly recommended to protect them from long-term exposure to radiation coming from powerful magnets, electric motors (as in electric fans, they use powerful electromagnets), SRHVP machine, TVs, microwaves, computers, and cell phones. Also, refer to vol 7 #1 and vol 8 #4.
Q5. Can a nosode* made from fruits, vegetables and vitamins be taken as a substitute for the physical food, since some foods being promoted for good health are quite un-affordable?
A. Fruits and vegetables potentised in the SRHVP can be used either to make the nutrients contained therein more bioavailable or to remove food allergies. A potentised version of a food item carries its energetic signature and not the actual nutrients needed by the body. While an imbalance in the energetic body can be corrected, the physical body needs nutrients for the organs to function. It is important to have a balanced diet but it is not necessary to eat exotic fruits and vegetables being promoted. God provides the necessary nutrients in locally grown seasonal fruits and vegetables.
*Incidentally this is not the correct usage of the word Nosode. A nosode is a remedy made by potentising a diseased human or animal tissue or bodily discharge.
Q6. In vol 11 #2, it is advised to wear gloves while handling morbid matter. Should we do the same when potentising food items?
A. As a general rule, we should advise the patient to bring the sample (be it a food item, an allergen or a medicine) in a clean/sterile vial small enough to fit inside the well of the SRHVP. Then the question of direct handling of the substance does not arise; this avoids any cross-contamination of the practitioner's energy. The vial should be covered with a plastic wrap such as cling film, before placing it in the Sample well. In this situation, wearing of gloves is not necessary.
