The State of Kerala is located on the Southern Tip of India along the Arabian Sea.
It is also the home of Ayurveda, an ancient Indian System of Medicine that uses the natural healing properties of Plants.
The Heart Leaved Creeper seen in the picture has the most incredible and near divine healing properties. The extremely strong but slender aerial roots were used in Ayurveda as sutures. Not only did these natural sutures heal they also held the wound together.
Several Healing Creepers wind themselves over the Indian Gooseberry tree making it hard to discern one from another.
Initially I assumed the Round Ball Like Fruits were Gooseberries ( a natural storehouse of Vitamin C and antioxidants) , then I realized they were the fruits of a creeper planted in a Herbal Garden.
My confusion is further confounded as the fruits are not of the Heart Leaved Moonseed ( English Name) Creeper, Giloy or Gurach ( Hindi Name) ,Tinospora cordifolia ( Scientific Name) either as the leaves and fruits you see in the picture below are entirely different.
The Ayurvedic Giloy Herbs are used to cure Cancer and Heart Diseases ( remember they have heart shaped leaves ) besides many other ailments.
While you are enchanted with the pictures and the natural Terracotta Roofs ( a hallmark of homes in Kerala) I must get to work and discern the third member of the Trinity of these Natural Healers.
