Five Star Hospitals and Infection Risk

0

FiveStarHospitals

AS far as probability of succumbing to resistant bacteria, Five star hospitals where sun rays cannot penetrate and antibiotics usage is rampant, are same as factory like animals farms. Deadly. Picnic place for pathogens.

Nursing homes, day care centers, homeless shelters, prisons, inner cities, animal hospitals and factory farming and hospitals – They are defense schools for bacterial armies. These are the places where they subscribe and rapidly learn new ways of combat. Wherever antibacterial use is high, bacterial armies’ rate of learning is high too. Heavy antibiotics presence in hospitals, water bodies, farms, causes immediate bacterial congregation, rapid learning and subsequent cascade of resistance information exchange.

To avoid this, we need to redesign our hospital setups. No more large establishments. Small is beautiful. No bombardments of antibiotics. Re-introduce copper and gobar (Desi cow dung) in hospitals.

Pranayam : Mandatory eligibility for marriage

Groom

Ever wondered why certain rituals exist in local culture? Try to find roots and you will find amazing purpose behind them. I always find them behind eternal rituals.

There is a marriage ritual in this part of the India. I am sure, similar ritual might exist in other local cultures of the India. It is called वरपोंखणा (વરપોંખણા) in Gujarati. Although it is now transformed into fun event, I came to know interesting reason behind it (from one elder scholar of the family)

In real sense, would-be mother-in-law, when she tries to grab the groom’s nose, she is actually asking him that does he really know the art and science of Pranayama (प्राणायाम) ( प्राणायामका ज्ञान है?) ? She actually tries to measure his breathing habit.

Why bride’s mother ask this question?

Because her daughter is going to spend entire life with this man. If this man does not even know how to breathe, how can he have healthy life? If he lacks health, how can he take care of her daughter? જેને પ્રાણાયામ અને નાડી શાસ્ત્ર ન આવડતું હોય તે દીર્ઘાયુ, રોગમુક્ત કેવી રીતે જીવન જીવી શકે? અને જો પોતેજ રોગીષ્ઠ અને અજ્ઞાની હોય તો તે લગ્ન કરીને વધુને(એમની દીકરી અને તેની સંતાનને) શું સાચવી શકે?

जिसको प्राणायाम नहीं आता ..वह स्वस्थ नहीं हो सकता…बीमार & रोगी cannot perform their duties towards children, parents, family, society and nation. So…in short..avg married life and no significant achievements. As per the ritual, groom tries to save his nose. It is nothing but hiding from inability Interesting, right? Are our youngsters healthy and ready at marriage age? We must act and develop healthy youth. All probabilities of strong and healthy India. प्राणायाम is mandatory pre-condition for successful प्रणय Or otherwise, this force generated by प्रणय is so intense that..not many can handle it for entire Grihasth life (Age 25 to age 50 ) Take care Pics from Google search. They are just to represent the ritual. I will delete them if there is any dispute.

स यथा शकुनि: सूत्रेण प्रबद्धो दिशं दिशं पतित्वा अन्यत्रायतनमलब्ध्वा बन्धनमेवोपश्रयते, एवमेव खलु सोम्य! तन्मनो दिशं दिशं पतित्वाऽन्यत्रायतन्मलब्ध्वा प्राणमेवोपश्रयते, प्राणबन्धनं हि सोम्य! मन इति।

-हे प्राण! जैसे धागे से बँधा हुआ पक्षी हर दिशा की ओर जाकर और अन्यत्र आश्रय न पाकर बन्धन का अवलम्ब लेता है; इसी प्रकार से है प्राण! यह मन विभिन्न दिशाओं में भटकने के बाद वहाँ, आश्रय न पाकर इस प्राण का अवलम्बन ग्रहण करता है। हे प्राण! मन का बन्धन प्राण है।

Do we care to breathe? Do we care minding? मन का बन्धन प्राण है। इसीलिए प्राणायाम आवश्यक है |

We need to work on societal psyche.

On grounds, let there be realization among us that mountains are not just another picnic spots where one can go and consume resources mindlessly.

On mountain, let there be realization among us that there is difference between life in mountain and on grounds. We don’t need to join moronic urban race. As a citizen of mountains, it is my job to protect mother nature. We don’t need oil-guzzlers vehicles here. We don’t need AC hotels here. We don’t need dams.

Over-quantifying illness is not progress

1) Can the material medicine cure migraine caused by nearby Mobile tower radiation, once and for all?
2) Can the material medicine supplement Prana Shakti lost in processing food?
3) Can the diagnosis test show why and how blood sugar increased?

Certain illnesses depend upon environmental and humane factors. Certain illnesses have roots in Prana (Energy field of the body in plain terms) or Mind (mindset of the patient). Machines drive physicians away from these factors.

Machines relentlessly direct the attention of both doctor and patient to the measurable aspects of illness, but away from the humane factors & environmental factors.

Over-quantifying illness is not progress but digress.

“So, without realizing what has happened, the physician in the last two centuries has gradually relinquished his unsatisfactory attachment to subjective evidence—what the patient says—only to substitute a devotion to technological evidence—what the machine says. He has thus exchanged one partial view of disease for another. As the physician makes greater use of the technology of diagnosis, he perceives his patient more and more indirectly through a screen of machines and specialists; he also relinquishes control over more and more of the diagnostic process. These circumstances tend to estrange him from his patient and from his own judgment.”

I know, it is not that easy but the realization should start at least.

इड़ा, पिंगला, सुषुम्ना meet @ त्रिवेणी संगम. They meet at third eye. Bathing @ त्रिवेणी संगम means focusing on the third eye while performing homa and/or japa.

One can also imagine self as a speck in the flow of electric current, flowing and concentrating at third eye. Just the way, pilgrimage bath at real त्रिवेणी संगम.

Next time when you visit त्रिवेणी संगम, don’t forget to take a bath by realizing three river flows as इड़ा, पिंगला, सुषुम्ना

Lack of Ghee(Fatty acids), Teenage and Anxiety disorder in Adult age

TeensFood

You ignore your teen boy/girl’s diet now, deprive them of vital omega fatty acids during brain growth period and you gift them anxiety and entire gamut of neurological disorders in adult life!!

And don’t feel sad for increasing cases of suicide! We as a society failed our future generation!

The structure and function of the brain continue to change throughout adolescence, at the same time that teenagers gain increasing independence and begin to make their own food choices. Since high-calorie, low-quality diets tend to be more affordable than healthy ones, teenagers may opt for foods that lack key nutrients important for brain health such as omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (n-3 PUFAs), which cannot be produced by the human body and must be obtained from foods such as Ghee, fish and vegetables.

Amplification of mGlu5-endocannabinoid signaling rescues behavioral and synaptic deficits in a mouse model of adolescent and adult dietary polyunsaturated fatty acids imbalance

Energy-dense, yet nutritionally-poor food is a high-risk factor for mental health disorders. This is of particular concern during adolescence, a period often associated with increased consumption of low nutritional content food and higher prevalence of mental health disorders. Indeed, there is an urgent need to understand the mechanisms linking unhealthy diet and mental disorders. Deficiency in n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acid (PUFAs) is a hallmark of poor nutrition and mood disorders. Here, we developed a mouse model of n-3 PUFAs deficiency lasting from adolescence into adulthood. Starting nutritional deficits in dietary n-3 PUFAs during adolescence decreased n-3 PUFAs in both medial prefrontal cortex (mPFC) and nucleus accumbens, increased anxiety-like behavior and decreased cognitive function in adulthood. Importantly, we discovered that endocannabinoid/mGlu5-mediated long-term depression in the mPFC and accumbens was abolished in adult n-3-deficient mice. Additionally, mPFC NMDAR-dependent long-term potentiation was also lacking in the n-3-deficient group. Pharmacological enhancement of the mGlu5/eCB signaling complex, by positive allosteric modulation of mGlu5 or inhibition of endocannabinoid 2-arachidonylglycerol (2-AG) degradation, fully restored synaptic plasticity and normalized emotional and cognitive behaviors in malnourished adult mice. Our data support a model where nutrition is a key environmental factor influencing the working synaptic range into adulthood, long after the end of the perinatal period. These findings have important implications for the identification of nutritional risk factors for disease and design of new treatments for the behavioral deficits associated with nutritional n-3 PUFAs’ deficiency.

Drone Parenting (Modern Psychology) vs (Sutra) Chanakya’s Child Psychology

Who decides what level documentation one should do?

अल्पाक्षरमसंदिग्धं सारवद्विश्वतो मुखम् ।
अस्तोभमनवद्यं च सूत्रं सूत्रविदो विदुः ॥

अल्पाक्षरता, असंदिग्धता, साररुप, सामान्य सिद्धांत, निरर्थक शब्द का अभाव, और दोषरहितत्व – ये छे ‘सूत्र’ के लक्षण कहे गये हैं ।

We believe in सूत्र level of documentation. If I really want my student to आत्मसात the subject, I will set him free by giving सूत्र | The real वीर will walk on the guided path (सूत्र) and derive his/her own conclusions based on स्थल, देश, काल!

so for parenting, very powerful sutra is given.

लालयेत् पंच वर्षाणि दश वर्षाणि ताडयेत्।
प्राप्ते तु षोडशे वर्षे पुत्रे मित्रवदाचरेत्।।

अर्थात- पाँच वर्ष की अवस्था तक पुत्र को लाड़ करना चाहिए, दस वर्ष की अवस्था तक (उसी की भलाई के लिए) उसे ताड़ना देना चाहिए और उसके सोलह वर्ष की अवस्था प्राप्त कर लेने पर उससे मित्रवत व्यवहार करना चाहिए।

We don’t care about the cultural legacy given as free gift and then run after half-baked western psychology. Take for example this concept of helicopter parenting!

It is not that easy to make 2 years set free. And at the same time, it is foolish to continuously observe 12 years old like a drone!

Helicopter Parenting May Negatively Affect Children’s Emotional Well-Being, Behavior

It’s natural for parents to do whatever they can to keep their children safe and healthy, but children need space to learn and grow on their own, without Mom or Dad hovering over them, according to new research published by the American Psychological Association. The study, published in the journal Developmental Psychology®, found that overcontrolling parenting can negatively affect a child’s ability to manage his or her emotions and behavior.

“Our research showed that children with helicopter parents may be less able to deal with the challenging demands of growing up, especially with navigating the complex school environment,” said Nicole B. Perry, PhD, from the University of Minnesota, and lead author of the study. “Children who cannot regulate their emotions and behavior effectively are more likely to act out in the classroom, to have a harder time making friends and to struggle in school.”

Gadget Meal – New style of parenting

EAtingwithGadget

If you have formed this habit of forcing kid to demand screen while eating, STOP it now! Find alternative. This is example of careless and lazy parenting.

1) Kids already have short attention spans. Having TV along with meal further divides it. Lesser focus on meal -> Indigestion
2) Kids learn unwanted human habits from advertisements. You shape their consumer habit.
3) They pick up unnecessary products targeted to them
4) Visuals limit imagination instead enhancing it.

Stop it. If at all needed, you sing a song or enact a scene! Don’t take shortcuts and ruin your kid’s future.

Parenting does not start at birth of a child but actually when you have very first thought of having a child. Since then, as a responsible parents, we must start taking care of the child that is still in mind-space.

Nurture their (future kids’) parental legacy (your body) by your life routine.

One small but important change needed is to reduce plastic usage. BPA stands for bisphenol A. BPA is an industrial chemical that has been used to make certain plastics and resins since the 1960s.

BPA is found in polycarbonate plastics and epoxy resins. Polycarbonate plastics are often used in containers that store food and beverages, such as water bottles. They may also be used in other consumer goods.

Epoxy resins are used to coat the inside of metal products, such as food cans, bottle tops and water supply lines. Some dental sealants and composites also may contain BPA.

BPA can induce multigenerational effects on ability to communicate

Past studies have shown that biparental care of offspring can be affected negatively when females and males are exposed to bisphenol A (BPA); however, previous studies have not characterized how long-term effects of BPA exposure in grandmothers and grandfathers might affect offspring communication ability. In a study published today in the journal PLOS One, researchers at the University of Missouri found that mice pups whose grandparents had been exposed to BPA, had different vocalization patterns. This, in turn, could also affect the amount of parental care they received. Scientists believe results could have important relevance to humans.

“Rodent pups use vocalizations to communicate with one or both parents, as in the case of biparental species, such as California mice,” said Cheryl Rosenfeld, professor of biomedical sciences in the College of Veterinary Medicine, investigator in the Bond Life Sciences Center, and research faculty member for the Thompson Center for Autism and Neurobehavioral Disorders at MU. “There are potential concerns that developmental exposure to BPA might increase an infant’s risk for autism spectrum disorder. Crying is the infant’s earliest communication form and changes in crying vocalization patterns might provide the earliest diagnostic tool for autism spectrum disorders (ASD). Thus, it is important to determine whether multigenerational exposure to BPA can alter pup vocalization patterns.”

Fetal BPA exposure in mice linked to estrogen-related diseases after adolescence

New research in The FASEB Journal suggests that fetal BPA exposure alters the estrogen response in more than 1,000 genes in the uterine epigenome and affects the subsequent estrogen response after puberty

Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology

https://www.eurekalert.org/pub_releases/2016-06/foas-fbe061716.php

“Our study demonstrates that fetal exposure to BPA leads to a detrimental change in the adult uterine response to estrogens,” said Hugh S. Taylor, M.D., a senior researcher involved in the work and Chief of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Yale-New Haven Children’s Hospital at the Yale School of Medicine in New Haven, Connecticut. “Our study confirms that BPA is an active compound and can negatively impact fetal development and confirms that steps should be taken to reduce maternal consumption of BPA during gestation.”

=============
Now you know why female children are becoming adult early and so many male children act like female. BPA led estrogen disruption! 🙁

Fundamental duty of being married is to take care of two pillars of the society.

1) Children 2) Parents

For children, there is still scope as there is selfish expectation of future that they will take care.

But for parents?

Do not break this beautiful cycle by disrespecting your parents. You exist because of them. You are whatever you are because of them. And this relation does not stop when they die. Even after death, parents remain with you, your kids forever. Never miss a golden opportunity to revere them.
Old video but thought to share as I see many examples around in society where old age homes are increasing and grown up adults do not want to take care of parents.
