Madness for dead food
————————-

deadfood

There is new obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) developed in modern Indians, under the influence of mass-communication mediums. We all are in search of more refined, more polished, better processed food sources. We want white polished rice. We want refined sugar. We want refined salt. We try refined oils of various types.

Like us, food too carry energy signature (Prana shakti/Pranic sharir) associated with it. With each process cycle to satisfy our OCD for polish, shining, whiteness, refinedness, filter , significant energy get busted in frictions with machines/hands.

Due to low at energy (Prana), food is deemed for staleness. So we add preservatives. By the time, food packets reach to market, it is almost dead. It takes monumental efforts by digestive system to digest dead food. Plus, there is no refilling of body’s prana. Accumulation of dead fat.

This is just pranic destruction. Destructions of sharir # 3,4,5 are beyond our comprehension at this moment.
Isn’t it worrisome when Govt promotes food processing industries (http://www.mofpi.nic.in/Index1.aspx)?

Go for fresh food. Unprocessed food. Unpolished food. Save yourself from OCD related to processed and packaged food.

Our body is not just physical form. It has its own intelligent energy layer. We call it प्राणमय कोष (Pranic Body). This प्राणमय layer takes all cellular decisions and act upon physical body. Eliminating toxins is one such task. It is being performed at cellular level, organ level and body level. Everything managed by प्राणमय layer .

प्राणमय layer is a pure subtly energy. As much we use it, it is being consumed. Low at प्राण means weakness to sickness. Gradually.
So too much work of elimination means weak प्राणमय layer. Especial अपान (Apana) . अपान (Apana) resides in GUT. 80% of immunity is managed in GUT. So if you demand heavy work from अपान (Apana) for purging toxins, it will never be able do other jobs i.e. immunity. And hence sicknesses. This is the reason, post-delivery (heavy work of elimination from body), exercise is must. To stabilize the अपान (Apana) again.

Vegetarian Diet And मुनि Dharma
—————————————–

MuniDharma

Reading Ramayana and Mahabharata clears many Grihasthi doubts. Try to read the original source and भाषांतर/टिका in मातृभाषा . Lot to learn.

Your diet changes with your terrain and end-goal. Here is something suggested by Lord Rama.

Book II : Ayodhya Kanda – Book Of Ayodhya

Chapter[Sarga] 20

Rama approaches his mother Kausalya to inform her of the calamity. Kausalya on hearing the news, faints. On recovering, she laments in the most grevious tones to Rama.

चतुर्दश हि वर्षाणि वत्स्यामि विजने वने |
मधु मूल फलैः जीवन् हित्वा मुनिवद् आमिषम् || २-२०-२९

“I shall live in a solitary forest like a sage for fourteen years, leaving off meat and living with roots, fruits and honey”.

Please note:

– Living like a sage
– leaving off meat
– living with roots,fruits and honey

Instead of wasting time in Veg vs Non-veg debates, strive food suitable for your innate prakriti, available locally, helping you to achieve end-goal (dharma).

Word मुनि is important. It is related to immunity. In highly dynamic environment of Jungle, middle of ample kills available, Bhagwan prefers vegetarian diet. Why? 🙂

The Medical Blame Game Criminals: Allergens, Carcinogens and Mosquito

carcinogens
Blaming Allergens for Allergy?
 
Blaming Carcinogens for Cancer?
Blaming Mosquito for Dengue?
 
😀
 
I challenge*, even in non-urban area, try to showcase environment without allergens, carcinogens and mosquito.
 
Possible? No.
 
It is like blaming trigger for Bomb Blast but not the real cause i.e. security lapse.
 
Presence of triggering events does not mean you will be sick for sure.
 
Carcinogens mere pre-pone the destined event (Cancerous state – which is destiny of all cells. They either die or become cancerous).
A CANCEROGEN DOES NOT CAUSE CANCER; IT MERELY CAUSES TEMPORAL ADVANCEMENT OF AN EVENT THAT WOULD HAVE OCCURRED, ON ITS OWN, OTHERWISE. ITS CORRECT NAME IS CANCER-PREPONER. [Reference : The Nature of Cancer by Dr M L Kothari]
 
You cannot avoid carcinogens all the time but you can certainly have control over cancerous nature of the cell!
 
Same is the case of Allergens. They don’t cause allergy but faulty immune system catches up with the triggering events. You cannot find perfectly sterile environment without any allergens. But you can always correct the immune responses.

For challenge,find out a place without following carcinogens. 😉 😛

Unless you are pharmacist or doctor yourself, will you give medicines to your child mindlessly?

Then why early life gadget exposure? Research after research, report after report recommends ZERO EXPOSURE to screen devices for infants and kids below 2 years!

Why can’t parents understand this simple thing?
Why do schools teach on screens?

I have shared in past. Here is one more study.

Too much time using digital media in the wrong way is linked to children’s quality of sleep, child development and physical health, the statement notes. (Heavy media use in preschool is associated with small but significant increases in body mass index.)

The guidelines recommend banning digital media use an hour before bed, turning off devices when not in use and keeping bedrooms, mealtimes and parent-child playtime screen free.


Research Study


Children and Adolescents and Digital Media

http://pediatrics.aappublications.org/content/early/2016/10/19/peds.2016-2593

Conclusions

New digital and social media facilitate and promote social interactions as well as participation and engagement that involve both viewing and creating content. The effects of media use, however, are multifactorial and depend on the type of media, the type of use, the amount and extent of use, and the characteristics of the individual child or adolescent using the media. Children today are growing up in an era of highly personalized media use experiences; therefore, parents should be encouraged to develop personalized Family Media Use Plans for their families that attend to each child’s age, health, temperament, and developmental stage and ensure that each child can practice and benefit from the essentials for healthy growth and development, such as a healthy diet, good sleep hygiene, adequate physical activity, and positive social interactions.

Parents should recognize and understand their own roles in modeling appropriate media use and balance between media time and other activities. Pediatricians can help families identify and adopt a healthy Family Media Use Plan, minimize unhealthy habits and behaviors, and recognize and address issues that occur related to the use of traditional and new media that can negatively affect health, wellness, social and personal development, and academic performance and success.

Role of Vastu: Sunlight, Household dust and bacteria

DAYLIGHTVASTU

We really don’t need such researches to to guide and us alter life style. This was natural and common sense in our society until we started ignoring वास्तु शास्त्र guidelines and building homes thoughtlessly in urban area. Now, even villages follow the same.

Allowing sunlight in through windows can kill bacteria that live in dust, according to a study published in the open access journal Microbiome.

Take for example: Kitchen. Kitchen is a place where maximum प्राणिक प्रवृत्ति(s) happen for the day. This is the place where food and water is handled. Maximum microbial communities exist here, after toilet/bathroom. This place is very critical for the sustenance of the family.

As per Vastu Sastra, Kitchen is prescribed in South-East direction with window in south.

Look at the picture. This is the ideal place where food and water gets exposure to daily sunlight. Sunlight = Prana = life

Daylight exposure modulates bacterial communities associated with household dust

Background

Microbial communities associated with indoor dust abound in the built environment. The transmission of sunlight through windows is a key building design consideration, but the effects of light exposure on dust communities remain unclear. We report results of an experiment and computational models designed to assess the effects of light exposure and wavelengths on the structure of the dust microbiome. Specifically, we placed household dust in replicate model “rooms” with windows that transmitted visible, ultraviolet, or no light and measured taxonomic compositions, absolute abundances, and viabilities of the resulting bacterial communities.

Results

Light exposure per se led to lower abundances of viable bacteria and communities that were compositionally distinct from dark rooms, suggesting preferential inactivation of some microbes over others under daylighting conditions. Differences between communities experiencing visible and ultraviolet light wavelengths were relatively minor, manifesting primarily in abundances of dead human-derived taxa. Daylighting was associated with the loss of a few numerically dominant groups of related microorganisms and apparent increases in the abundances of some rare groups, suggesting that a small number of microorganisms may have exhibited modest population growth under lighting conditions. Although biological processes like population growth on dust could have generated these patterns, we also present an alternate statistical explanation using sampling models from ecology; simulations indicate that artefactual, apparent increases in the abundances of very rare taxa may be a null expectation following the selective inactivation of dominant microorganisms in a community.

Conclusions

Our experimental and simulation-based results indicate that dust contains living bacterial taxa that can be inactivated following changes in local abiotic conditions and suggest that the bactericidal potential of ordinary window-filtered sunlight may be similar to ultraviolet wavelengths across dosages that are relevant to real buildings.

Depleted Prana, Dehydration and infection

0
dehydration
High fever supported viral infection is common in growing children. This leads to dehydration. Dehydration means lack of water. In Ayurvedic terms, it means lack of प्राण.
 
Exhausted प्राण is an ideal condition for bacterial breeding. So the next step comes is bacteria infection. Because it often converts into different victim organ sites i.e. Urinary tract infection, sinuses, respiratory infection etc.
 
And that is what we must avoid. That can be avoided by keeping body hydrated during fever. Let fever do its job of cleaning while keep body cool by external application of water (and we use Gau mutra added) massage and fluid intake (Water + watery fruits + honey + ghee) . This is the most effective treatment worked for me and many friends. Keep fever untouched if it is in the range of 100 – 100.5 to avoid organ level damage by heat ( I personally prefer up to 101. But not advised for everyone. 🙂 )
 
And for organ healing : Turmeric + Milk + Ghee and/or Turmeric + Honey
 
By this way, we can avoid bacteria infection and all associated modern medicine treatment.
 
In summary: Avoid dehydration. As much as possible. Water is life. Water prevents sicknesses. Drink enough fluid during summer and October heat spells
 
PS: This is all based on my personal experience. Follow your intuition and consult doctor as per self-guidance (Y). I shared it here because I found a link between dehydration and infection in this paper.

Mild dehydration: a risk factor of urinary tract infection?

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/14681714
Bacterial growth in the urinary tract is usually prevented by host factors including bacterial eradication by urinary and mucus flow, urothelial bactericidal activity, urinary secretory IgA, and blood group antigens in secretions which interfere with bacterial adherence. Bacterial eradication from the urinary tract is partially dependent on urine flow and voiding frequency. Therefore, it seems logical to postulate a connection between fluid intake and the risk of urinary tract infections (UTIs). However, experimental and clinical data on this subject are conflicting. Experimental studies concerning the effect of water intake on susceptibility and course of UTIs were predominantly performed in the 60s and 70s. Despite many open questions, there has been no continuous research in this field. Only few clinical studies producing contradictory results are available on the influence of fluid intake concerning the risk of UTI. One explanation for the inconsistency between the data might be the uncertainty about the exact amounts of fluid intake, which was mostly recorded in questionnaires. So far, there is no definitive evidence that the susceptibility for UTI is dependent on fluid intake. Nevertheless, adequate hydration is important and may improve the results of antimicrobial therapy in UTI. Results of experimental and clinical studies concerning urinary hydrodynamics are the basis for advice given by expert committees to patients with UTI to drink large volumes of fluid, void frequently, and completely empty the bladder. The combination of the behaviourally determined aspects of host defence and not simply increasing fluid intake is important in therapy and prophylaxis of UTI.

Vacation? How about Food-Tourism?

Our grand-children will remember our generations (Born in 20th and 21st century) as generation of fools, who grew/raised food by poisons.

Be wise now and earn respect from grand-children in future for saving their lives 🙂. Strive for food grown in chemical-free farms.

Let me introduce new concept here to take care of your holiday fun:)

Every season end, go in search of healthy food. A kind of

Food tourism. From village to village, in search of organic food. Nothing like that. I am doing for last couple of years. No Vacation can beat the fun we as a family is having in food search travel.

I firmly believe that , it is not farmer’s job to sell. In case of food, it is win-win situation when the hungry (We the consumers) puts efforts in searching the source.

Decentralized and yet community network for food.

Farmer has more critical duties to perform towards mother nature, then worrying about sell.

Impact of Environment on meal, Meal as Ritual, Offering Food to Deva

FoodEnv

In all native cultures where modernity has not touched, having meal is considered sacred ritual. Place where people eat, family eat is considered and maintained like a temple.

There is specific serving method. Food needs to be observed before eating it.

For practicing Hindu, food is very sacred part of life. From growing food to consuming it to offering it to Deva. Subtly rich ways to consume food. We pay highest attention to not only food, how we eat, where we eat, who serve the food and all!

Before we eat, we offer food to Deva. नैवेद्य निवेदित!

Following is very common practice:
कर्मकांड के स्तर की पद्धति : बाएं हाथ का अंगूठा बाईं आंखपर व बाएं हाथ की अनामिका दाईं आंखपर रखकर आंखें मूंद लें और ‘ॐ प्राणाय स्वाहा । ॐ अपानाय स्वाहा । ॐ व्यानाय स्वाहा । ॐ उदानाय स्वाहा । ॐ समानाय स्वाहा । ॐ ब्रह्मणे स्वाहा ।।’, पंचप्राणों से संबंधित इस मंत्र का उच्चारण करते हुए नैवेद्य की सुगंध को दाहिने हाथ की पांचों उंगलियों के सिरों से देवता की ओर दिशा दें ।
उसके उपरांत ‘नैवेद्यमध्येपानीयं समर्पयामि ।’ बोलते हुए दाहिने हाथ से ताम्रपात्र में थोडा जल छोडें व पुन: ‘ॐ प्राणाय…’, पंचप्राणों से संबंधित इस मंत्र का उच्चारण करें । उसके उपरांत ‘नैवेद्यम् समर्पयामि, उत्तरापोशनम् समर्पयामि, हस्तप्रक्षालनम् समर्पयामि, मुखप्रक्षालनम् समर्पयामि’ बोलते हुए दाहिने हाथ से ताम्रपात्र में जल छोडें ।

*Modern Research: Eating with your eyes: Virtual reality can alter taste. “When we eat, we perceive not only just the taste and aroma of foods, we get sensory input from our surroundings – our eyes, ears, even our memories about surroundings,”*

Food’s taste is enhanced by virtual reality! We offer food to deva (senses) first! Don’t we?

“When we eat, we perceive not only just the taste and aroma of foods, we get sensory input from our surroundings – our eyes, ears, even our memories about surroundings,” said Robin Dando, associate professor of food science and senior author of the study.

Eating is very sensitive interaction among our bodies, environment and food. Seduction by foreign food and drinks is biggest insult to healthy cultural legacy of ancestors and serious apathy towards environment. We are what our ancestors ate, and also what they had to regurgitate (vomit) i.e. what to eat and what not to eat. If seduced for foreign food and drinks, life will be pathetic. Not only yours, but of all upcoming confused generations who will not pay attention to environment and cultural food legacy.

Food nourishes life, refilling the prana. Eating was also considered meditation for Sanatani hindu. It was no ordinary time of the day.The loftier aspect of meditation is the principle of Vaishvanara Vidya.

The food that we take every day is a holy oblation to the All-pervading Vital Fire. This meditation is Prana-agnihotra. Agnihotra is the consecrated offering into the sacred Fire.

Result? Diabetes, blood pressure, cancer and many unimagined life style diseases.

Read this research to realize the wrong with our modern ways of eating food.

Before we read research, read this excerpt from the book वैश्वानर विद्या

Eating,Ritualistically or exoterically conceived, this means the daily performance of the yajna, or sacrifice, by a householder. The Upanishad makes out that this agnihotra is perpetually taking place in our own bodies, of which we have to be conscious in our meditation. The external sacrifice ceases to be external any more. Viewing everything from the point of view of the All-inclusive Vaishvanara, the externality of an action ceases forever. There is no such thing as external action, because everything that we regard as external is internal to the Vaishvanara.

The food that we eat is digested by the action of the pranas. We have five pranas, and so, when taking food, religious people utter mantras saying, “This is to the prana, this is to the apana,” etc. This is not merely a ritual unconsciously performed as a routine, but a religious worship. It is a meditation, and we are supposed to be conscious of what we are doing when we consume food. The process of Pranaagnihotra mentioned here is the act of introducing a universal significance into what are apparently individual functions. The three fires are inside the Universal Being, Vaishvanara. And, again, to repeat, this threefold fire is in us as inseparable from the Vaishvanara. So, when we take a morsel of food what are we to contemplate?

Rituals have subtly effect. Now, when you read below research, you will realize the value sacred meal rituals followed in Hindu families and how it helps them grow spiritually while maintaining healthy body and mind.

 


Eating with your eyes: Virtual reality can alter taste

http://news.cornell.edu/stories/2018/09/eating-your-eyes-virtual-reality-can-alter-taste


Eating is a multimodal experience. When we eat, we perceive not just the taste and aroma of foods, but also their visual, auditory, and tactile properties, as well as sensory input from our surroundings. Foods are commonly tested within a sensory booth, designed specifically to limit such input. Foods are not commonly experienced in such isolation, but alongside this context, which can alter how a food is perceived. In this study, we show that the sensory properties of food can be altered by changing the environment it is consumed in, using virtual reality (VR) to provide an immersive, dynamic context to the eating experience. The purpose of this project was to develop an affordable and easy‐to‐implement methodology for adapting VR technology to sensory evaluation, without prohibitive amounts of expensive equipment or specialized programming knowledge. Virtual environments were formed by processing custom‐recorded 360 degree videos and overlaying audio, text, sensory scales, and images to simulate a typical sensory evaluation ballot within the VR headset. In a pilot test, participants were asked to taste 3 identical blue cheese samples in 3 virtual contexts–a sensory booth, a park bench, and a cow barn. Respondents rated their liking of the sample, as well as its saltiness, and pungency, attributes either reflective of one context (pungency in the barn), or presumably unrelated (saltiness). Panelists duly rated the sample’s flavor as being more pungent when consumed in the barn context. These results provide proof of concept for VR in applied sensory studies, providing an immersive context to a sensory test while remaining in place.

Practical application

We consume foods in environments that can “spill over” into our perceptions of the food. Thus, we consider some foods “unsuitable” for certain settings, with others deemed more suitable for this locale. This has been studied for many years as sensory “context,” with written descriptions, pictures, or videos of such contexts. We present a method generating virtual reality contexts without any specist programming knowledge, for a few hundred dollars. In an accompanying pilot test, perception of a sample was significantly influenced by the VR context in which it was delivered.

Mother is not milk machine

Many Gujarati(s) feel pride when they read news items that Gir cows in Brazil yield 80 ltr per day! Minimum 50 ltr per day!

First of all, we must get rid of this consumerist attitude and look mother as milk machine! Mother gives milk as per local terrain, food offered to her, season and care-taker’s love and care for her. Quality matters and not quantity!

Now, read these research and new items to realize why milk yield is higher!


Boost for dairy & poultry industries: Fish and beer waste are food for cattle, poultry

Most fish turned into fish-meal for LIVESTOCK

https://www.sciencenews.org/blog/wild-things/most-fish-turned-fishmeal-are-species-we-could-be-eating?mode=blog&context=116


Research


Effects of feeding fish meal to cows on digestibility, milk production, and milk composition.

Holstein cows in early lactation, producing about 30 kg/d of milk, were fed high energy diets containing 5% Megalac. Three protein treatments, soybean meal diet (16% CP), fish meal diet (16% CP), and soybean meal-fish meal diet (20% CP) were compared in a change-over design. Digestibilities of DM, gross energy, CP, and ADF were not affected significantly by protein treatments. The fish meal diet decreased DMI but increased milk and SCM production compared with the soybean meal diet. Daily production of milk, SCM, and milk components (fat, protein, and lactose) were highest and BW gain lowest for the high protein soybean meal-fish meal diet. The fish meal and soybean meal-fish meal diets increased fat percentage but decreased lactose percentage of milk compared with soybean meal diet. This suggests that, for each diet, the energy supply was adequate, and the observed changes were the effects of protein (i.e., AA) supply to the cows. Thus, there seems to be good reason to feed a good quality undegradable protein like fish meal to cows producing more than 30 kg/d of milk.

Shri Krishna’s way: Neither being Militant Vegan nor being Gullible Dairy consumer

cow

In one seminar, the doctor told his audience that Milk also causes Cancer.

This is called ‘Half truth’ due to ‘Bookish information’. Doctor was right but he should have mentioned correct factors. Gau seva and Gau Prasad (milk, dahi, ghee, mutra, gobar) are ageless rituals of this land (in gau-friendly terrain). Cancer was not prevalent in society until foreign breed were introduced to farmers by NDDB. So being a doctor, he should have done research and gave right information.

1) Milk from A1 cows has potential to cause cancer due to genetically markers that releases BCM7 in milk
2) Milk from A1 or A2 cows, treated inhumanly **, can cause sickness since stress given to cows disturbs their prana and vata.

****treated inhumanly means:

1) When processed food is fed,
2) When meat and flesh is fed to increase milk yield
3) When hormone injections are given
4) When artificial pregnancy is forced
5) When her calves are not given their share of milk
6) When she is not allowed to graze in the field
7) When she is not given fresh water to drink
8) When she is treated like a slave or machine
9) When the milk is sold (Milk is the only source of income)
10) when the milk is processed at high temperature (Dairy)

In short, mental and physical stress (A2 cows) or physical limitation(A1 cows) is root cause of cancer caused by milk.

श्री कृष्ण suggests in Gita to walk on middle path. युक्त is the prefix used. Sensible decisions.

Relying on modern dairy is extreme end.
Being militant Vegan is another extreme.

We must find the middle path. युक्त path. Sensible way of living that promoted environmental and societal stability.

And when you cannot find middle path by own, seek guidance from last generation, scriptures. Research and find out local traditions.

In my limited understanding, this is about middle path:

When you buy milk from dairy, in sachets, you get information about nutritional content.

Do you get following information?

1) What food is given to cow?
2) Are there any hormone injection given?
3) Were they kept in clean place?
4) Were calves of cow given milk before milking for sell?

These factors too play role in our health or sickness (Just like Chemical farming vs Organic farming). If we say, we are educated and modern, why do we ignore these facts? Selectively wise? 😀 Self-denial? Helpless ? Slaves?

Good morning. Think about this. Take care. We must no rely on fancy brand names for our daily food. It is critical to establish link with our food i.e.

Grow your own food

or

Get connected with farmer and gau shala.

This is early suggestion from future. Sooner or later, society will have to move in this direction. Disconnect from food source is one of the major causes of our chaos.

Otherwise, extreme ways will lead us to collapse
