Vata Prakop : Cracked heels

PS: Young married couple: If you see any of Vata symptom in each other, treat it before you plan for progeny. This is to unnecessary avoid Vata as birth Prakruti.

Vayu Prakop - Normal in middle age
Vayu Prakop – Normal in middle age

Cracked heels (Benign Vipadika) is a symptom of Vata Prakop. Vipadika is a common disorder of skin which affects the people irrespective of age and sex. It is not limited to any particular class in the society. Its signs and symptoms according to charaka are pani pada sphutana and teevra vedana.

This used to be middle age symptom indicating gradual increase of Vata with aging. But now a days, I see college going youth suffering from this – Clear indication of untimely and early onset of aggravated Vata.

When it becomes prolonged or spread in entire body, we call it कुष्ठ / Leprosy.

Solution:

1) Apply warm sesame oil or ghee cooked with turmeric and hareettaki.
2) Soak the feet in warm salt water daily for 5-10 mins
3) Apply mixture of castor oil and turmeric on cracks
4) Apply mixture of castor oil and turmeric + Triphala on cracks

Laborers/Villagers/Generation before Toilet seat don’t get fat stomach. Officer-goers, armchair-intellectual do get. One strikingly different habit? Squatting.

====================
Seven Advantages of Squatting
====================

[1] Makes elimination faster, easier and more complete. This helps prevent “fecal stagnation,” a prime factor in colon cancer, appendicitis and inflammatory bowel disease.
[2] Protects the nerves that control the prostate, bladder and uterus from becoming stretched and damaged.
[3] Securely seals the ileocecal valve, between the colon and the small intestine. In the conventional sitting position, this valve is unsupported and often leaks during evacuation, contaminating the small intestine.
[4] Relaxes the puborectalis muscle which normally chokes the rectum in order to maintain continence.
[5] Uses the thighs to support the colon and prevent straining. Chronic straining on the toilet can cause hernias, diverticulosis, and pelvic organ prolapse.
[6] A highly effective, non-invasive treatment for hemorrhoids, as shown by published clinical research.
[7] For pregnant women, squatting avoids pressure on the uterus when using the toilet. Daily squatting helps prepare one for a more natural delivery.

Anti-Bharat Hate of Indian National Congress And Ayurveda

2

Ever wondered why every other Indian around us, groomed  under colonial legacy education system setup by 1947 Independence custodians i.e. Indian National Congress, hate local culture or have very ostrich view about their roots?

It is because Indian National Congress was rooted in Anti-Sanatana Culture.

Let me share pain of renowned Ayurvedacharya Dr Bhudeb Mukerjee’s book Rasa Jala Nidhi published in 1938.

For everyone’s surprice, M K Gandhi is known to entire world as follower of naturopathy, makes comment against Ayurveda! 🙂

PS: Mind you – Naturopathy is not Ayurveda! Former is whims and fancies of few based on local benefits while Ayurveda is pure principles led  science!

Read it to realize why modern Indians around us don’t trust Ayurveda and make fun of it. Read it why we failed to produce real Ayurvedic doctor (due to lack of trust on scriptures and blind pattern of modern education followed in modern Ayurvedic colleges)

This was about Dr. Bhudeb Mukerjee’s pain about then INC political leaders western love and hate for local science and culture.

Here is what Mr. Nehru said once:

Nehru’s views on village society:

“A village, normally speaking, is backward intellectually and culturally and no progress can be made from a backward environment.” [1]

[1] pg 9, http://el.doccentre.info/eldoc1/dsc/DSC1_B1004.pdf

With such biased views against local culture and civilization, no wonder Congress led govt promoted cow slaughter after 1947.

———————————————————————
Roots of cow slaughter in India
1954 Expert Committee on the Prevention of Slaughter of Cattle in India
———————————————————————

In 1954, the Government of India (Ministry of Food and Agriculture) appointed an “Expert Committee on the Prevention of Slaughter of Cattle in India”, which gave its report in January 1955.

Do you want to know committee’s startling conclusion?

Hold your breadth! 😀

In the very middle of the report, the Committee began to say that as we do not have enough fodder we cannot maintain more than 40% of our cattle. According to it, 60% of the rest had to be culled from the Indian Cattle stock, whenever possible.

Can you imagine the reason? There is no fodder so kill! 😀 Insane, illogical and fabricated!

Points to ponder upon:

1) It was Congress govt led by Nehru
2) Nehru was a meat-eater, specially beef-eater, a regular wine-drinker
3) He regularly took guidance from British Govt and queen even after 1947. It is documented fact that Kashmir mess was due to he asked Mountbatten to take decisions.

Connect the dots. Britishers did not want India to prosper so they promoted cow slaughter. Independent India’s slave rulers followed the same on master’s call.

Last but not the least,

Mr. Nehru believed that Vedas were written by Aryans who invaded India! lol !

For him, Sanskrit scriptures were mere mythology of primitive minds, and it was unfortunate for him that many Indians believes in Vedas as holy scriptures. For him, Vedic Hymns were mere poetic testaments of a people’s collective reaction to the wonder of Nature. For him, only words of Christ and Buddha are relevant to Indians.

Why mid-life obesity?

3

Online friend asked this query recently. Why fat increases after marriage?

Old note on same topic.

Obesity : Mid-life crisis img src: http://goo.gl/zEQAE0
Obesity : Mid-life crisis
img src: http://goo.gl/zEQAE0

1) Why do pregnant mothers increase fat in last trimester with the help of changing patterns of healthy bacteria in mother’s intestine ( ‪#‎marutMicrobes‬)?

2) Why OBESITY is prominent in our times?

“यन्मांसां स्वागि्ना पक्वं तन्मेद इति कथ्यते॥
तदतीव गुरु स्निग्धं बलकार्यतिबृंहणम्॥”

Meda or Fat is a perfectly ripe; mature flesh (मांस). (One of 7 dhatus). It is ripen by the Fire of the body. It is full of fire. It is in fact, fuel. Raw fuel. Besides satisfying energy needs of the body, it provides stability/firmness to body. Shock absorption.

In last trimester of pregnancy, baby has fragile bones and organs. It needs protection from unforeseen external accidents. During this time, brain is under development and demands super flow of energy.

Fat मेद gain by mother.

OBESITY

Rasa dhatu (Lymph) => Rakta dhatu (Blood) => Mamsa dhatu (Muscles) => Medha dhatu (Fat) => Asthi dhatu (Bone) => Majja dhatu (marrow (bone and spinal)) => Shukra dhatu (Semen)

Now when we see abnormal increase in Fat, it is Vata disorder. There is a temporary PAUSE at conversion from Meda (FAT) to Asthi(Bones).

Result => Excessive FAT.

Mother Nature is very kind. If you are suffering from Vata disorder, your probably have fragile bones. So to protect your bones, she increases FAT.

Solution?

Correct Vata disorder and weight due to FAT will reduce.

Side note: Generally, when a young boy gets married, he starts developing FAT.

Do you know reason? Because wife cooks well? 😀 No. Wife cannot cook as good as mother 😉. It is because, he is now regularly indulged in sex. Excessive sex deranges Vata => FAT

What happened due to abnormally early FAT ?

FAT => Compromised bones, compromised marrow, compromized shukra. Obesity impairs reproductive outcome significantly.

Any doubt why obese suffer from infertility?

Some supporting research papers for obesity and reproduction links.

Obesity and infertility.

Fertility can be negatively affected by obesity. In women, early onset of obesity favours the development of menses irregularities, chronic oligo-anovulation and infertility in the adult age. Obesity in women can also increase risk of miscarriages and impair the outcomes of assisted reproductive technologies and pregnancy, when the body mass index exceeds 30 kg/m. The main factors implicated in the association may be insulin excess and insulin resistance. These adverse effects of obesity are specifically evident in polycystic ovary syndrome. In men, obesity is associated with low testosterone levels. In massively obese individuals, reduced spermatogenesis associated with severe hypotestosteronemia may favour infertility. Moreover, the frequency of erectile dysfunction increases with increasing body mass index.

The adverse effects of obesity on conception and implantation

  1. Christopher J Brewer and
  2. Adam H Balen

Whilst many multiparous women are obese (body mass index >30 kg/m2), obesity has been associated with impaired fecundity; however, the mechanism which links obesity to reduced fertility remains to be fully elucidated. Obese women, particularly those with central obesity, are less likely to conceive per cycle. Obese women suffer perturbations to the hypothalamic–pituitary–ovarian axis, menstrual cycle disturbance and are up to three times more likely to suffer oligo-/anovulation. A fine hormonal balance regulates follicular development and oocyte maturation, and it has been observed that obesity can alter the hormonal milieu. Leptin, a hormone produced by adipocytes, is elevated in obese women, and raised leptin has been associated with impaired fecundity. Obesity impairs ovulation but has also been observed to detrimentally affect endometrial development and implantation. The expression of polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is regulated, in part, by weight, and so obese women with PCOS often have a more severe phenotype and experience more subfertility. Obesity also impairs the response of women to assisted conception treatments. Weight loss through lifestyle modification or bariatric surgery has been demonstrated to restore menstrual cyclicity and ovulation and improve the likelihood of conception. In this article, we will discuss the effect of obesity upon key reproductive mechanisms and its relation to fertility treatments.

What is solution for mid-life early Vata disorder?

There are many solutions. Some of them are listed here:

1) Surya Namaskar every morning.
2) Worship Hanuman ji
3) Abhyang – Tel malish daily before taking bath (45 mins before) – Sesame oil AND Head malish after taking last meal of the day, before sleeping.
4) Fasting on Saturday
5) Turmeric and Ginger – include as medicine. Esp. during monsoon.

Bacterial Ecosystems Divide People Into 3 Groups, Scientists Say

Bacterial Ecosystems in Guts => your ability to digest food nutrients => Your nature or Prakruti

So, basically world of science is moving towards already known facts in Indian culture i.e. त्रिगुण (Satva,Rajas,Tamas), त्रिदोष (Vata, Pitta, Kapha)

The data, on the bacteriomes of Europeans, Japanese and Americans indicates that human bacteriomes fall into 3 ‘robust clusters’, independent of ethnicity, nation or continent. The paper suggests that enterotypes originate in preferred colonization of the gut of newly born infants.

And hoes does newborn’s sterile gut is colonized?

Mother’s milk i.e mother’s prakriti, Father’s prakruti, grand-parents prakriti and place where newborn is raised.

Bacterial Ecosystems Divide People Into 3 Groups, Scientists Say

Three types of microbes
Three types of microbes

http://www.nature.com/nature/journal/vaop/ncurrent/full/nature09944.html

In the early 1900s, scientists discovered that each person belonged to one of four blood types. Now they have discovered a new way to classify humanity: by bacteria. Each human being is host to thousands of different species of microbes. Yet a group of scientists now report just three distinct ecosystems in the guts of people they have studied.

Nor could they find a connection to sex, weight, health or age. They are now exploring other explanations. One possibility is that the guts, or intestines, of infants are randomly colonized by different pioneering species of microbes.

The microbes alter the gut so that only certain species can follow them.

Whatever the cause of the different enterotypes, they may end up having discrete effects on people’s health. Gut microbes aid in food digestion and synthesize vitamins, using enzymes our own cells cannot make.

Dr. Bork and his colleagues have found that each of the types makes a unique balance of these enzymes. Enterotype 1 produces more enzymes for making vitamin B7 (also known as biotin), for example, and Enterotype 2 more enzymes for vitamin B1 (thiamine).

Please Note:

  • त्रिगुण (Satva,Rajas,Tamas), त्रिदोष (Vata, Pitta, Kapha) – they are also not having dependency on sex, weight, health and age but in reality controls all aspects of life! And this part of truth is not yet realized by modern science.

 

 

Modern Ayurveda vs Prescribed Ayurveda

==========================
Modern Ayurveda and Prescribed Ayurveda
==========================

Ayurveda Prescription

Sanskrit Name: Vatsnabh
Hindi Name: MeethaVish
English Name: Monks hood
Latin Name: Aconitum ferox

A deciduous perennial that grows to 1.0 meters (3.3 feet) high by 0.5 meters (1.65 feet) wide and prefers many types of soil with a pH ranging from acid to alkaline and partial to full sun with moderate moisture. This plant has hermaphrodite flowers and is hardy to zone 6 and is pollinated by bees. Habitat: E. Asia – Himalayas. Shrubberies and forest clearings, 2100 – 3600 meters from C. Nepal to Bhutan. This plant might do well located along a dappled edge or in a woodland garden.

Pacifies Vata and Kapha. It is a very famous medication in Ayurveda for fever and all inflammatory conditions. It has a diuretic action, causes bradycardia and reduces sweating. On local application in the form of a paste made out of root powder it reduces swelling and pain and is thus used frequently in Arthritis.

I have given this example to discuss one important point.

I always wondered, despite having such vast knowledge as cultural legacy, why Ayurvedic treatment is not showing results as expected in all cases?

There are several reasons. Two reasons that come to my memory immediately are
1) Lack of lifestyle alternations. Ayurvedic prescribes lifestyle alteration along with medication and we the modern men, don’t like to alter our life for betterment.
2) Lack of authentic Ayurvedic doctors. Those doctors who perform Ayurveda in modern ways (mass production of medicines, lack of purification as per prescription, long shelf life preservation) are not authentic in my view. For example:

Shiv Sharma was great Ayurvedacharya of 19th Century Bharat. He was son of Chief Medical officer of Patiala state. In his book preface (Book: Hindi Translation of Rasratna Samuccaya), he mentioned following incident:

Shiv Sharma mentioned incident of administration of Vatsnabh. Vatsnabh based medicine was purified and prepared by two methods 1) Ayurvedic way 2) Modern way and was injected separately to persons and found that person injected with the one purified by modern methods showing poisonous effects, whereas the one prepared by Ayurvedic method showed no such poisonous effects, thus proving the superiority of the Ayurvedic ways. According to Shiv Sharma, in Ayurvedic way, purification of Vatsnabh should be done by boiling it in the urine of cow which is impure for so called modern men’s chemical sense! From this, it becomes clear that procedures peculiar to Veda, though look crude to our impaired intellect, must not be compromised.[1]

Why home-based fermented food? Link to Acidity

The Pink Acidity Medicine Src: http://goo.gl/ycnG8x
The Pink Acidity Medicine

In last post, I talked about importance of bacteria in controlling our mood/mental state.

This[1] interesting article supports the hypothesis I presented about eating ONLY home-made dahi/butter milk/yogurt (to avoid alien bacteria of alien environment i.e. shop/factory where dahi is prepared in mass). It also suggests another hypothesis of having Panchmrit prepared from all unrefined, unprocessed raw milk, jaggery, sugar and honey.

More processed food you eat, more alien food you eat (Food prepared in alien environment i.e. restaurants), frequent travelling you do (so eating outside food frequently) and more acidity you suffer from.

The researchers found that scavengers, or species that eat food at high risk of microbial contamination, have more acidic stomachs. This acidity allows the stomach to act as a filter, effectively controlling which microbes can pass through the stomach to the gut.

Passing stomach acidity is very essential for probiotic food. Most probiotic food available in market fail here. It only helps in increasing acidity of the stomach.

An analysis of data on stomach acidity and diet in birds and mammals suggests that high levels of stomach acidity developed not to help animals break down food, but to defend animals against food poisoning. The work raises interesting questions about the evolution of stomach acidity in humans, and how modern life may be affecting both our stomach acidity and the microbial communities that live in our guts.

Antacids is not a solution. It is actually counter-health solution. Right solution is to avoid eating at unknown food-joints, at unknown places. Avoid highly processed food full of chemicals.

Pathology-Low-Acid-Level-Diseases
Pathology-Low-Acid-Level-Diseases

1) If you start cooking for self, you will never need acidity regulators!acidity regulators are against the innate nature of stomach! Never take them! They worsen the stomach working.
2) Take good care of selecting and preparing probiotic food.
3) Avoid outside food and travelling as much as possible
4) Avoid non-veg diet if you are living in terrain where plant based diet is available.

Take care. Never seek easy short-sighted solutions.

The Evolutionary Link Between Diet and Stomach Acidity

[1] Reference: https://news.ncsu.edu/2015/07/beasley-acid-2015/

Diet and Stomach Acidity
Diet and Stomach Acidity

Gastric acidity is likely a key factor shaping the diversity and composition of microbial communities found in the vertebrate gut. We conducted a systematic review to test the hypothesis that a key role of the vertebrate stomach is to maintain the gut microbial community by filtering out novel microbial taxa before they pass into the intestines. We propose that species feeding either on carrion or on organisms that are close phylogenetic relatives should require the most restrictive filter (measured as high stomach acidity) as protection from foreign microbes. Conversely, species feeding on a lower trophic level or on food that is distantly related to them (e.g. herbivores) should require the least restrictive filter, as the risk of pathogen exposure is lower. Comparisons of stomach acidity across trophic groups in mammal and bird taxa show that scavengers and carnivores have significantly higher stomach acidities compared to herbivores or carnivores feeding on phylogenetically distant prey such as insects or fish. In addition, we find when stomach acidity varies within species either naturally (with age) or in treatments such as bariatric surgery, the effects on gut bacterial pathogens and communities are in line with our hypothesis that the stomach acts as an ecological filter. Together these results highlight the importance of including measurements of gastric pH when investigating gut microbial dynamics within and across species

Grabbing Ayurvedic Formulas : New low from Pharma-cartel

BattleTurmericThis is alarming.

Since ayurveda is able to cure ailments for which modern medicine has not been able to offer solutions, pharma giants are buying up rights for “traditional practices”, said P. Murali Krishna, professor, Sri Venkateswara Ayurvedic College and Hospital.

He said a U.S.-based pharma giant had purchased rights for a traditional ayurvedic practice for 15 years. More such transactions were on the cards, he said.

Two points

1) This should be eye opener for my allopath friends who still live in denial mode and not ready to accept power of Ayurveda

2) Does not matter much if they buy rights of procedures. With reductionist attitude, it is not possible to receive wholesome benefits of Ayurvedic procedures.


Pharma giants buying up rights for Ayurvedic practices: expert


Since ayurveda is able to cure ailments for which modern medicine has not been able to offer solutions, pharma giants are buying up rights for “traditional practices”, said P. Murali Krishna, professor, Sri Venkateswara Ayurvedic College and Hospital.

Dr. Krishna delivered the keynote address on “Management of skin disorders” at a national-level seminar organised by Kerala-based Vaidyaratnam Oushadha Sala here on Thursday.

He said a U.S.-based pharma giant had purchased rights for a traditional ayurvedic practice for 15 years. More such transactions were on the cards, he said.

Dr Krishna said several ailments, particularly skin, for which modern medicine offered no sustainable remedies, had cures in ayurveda.

The three-pronged approach of ayurveda — diet, drugs and life style — had a cure for chronic skin aliments like psoriasis and eczema which were suppressed only temporarily by antibiotics and steroids.

Ayurveda vs Modern Medicine

modernvsayurveda

Which branch of Health science is Nature friendly and Human friendly?

1) Ayurveda :

Foundation principles of this branch prescribes prevention by in-depth elaboration of life style for place, terrain, age and season.

In case if you still get the sickness after following preventive steps, you don’t suppress the symptoms but boost body for self-healing. There is no intervention in hiding symptoms.

And for self-healing, take help from Mother Nature. Plants, Animals and minerals. Only when needed. There is not consumerism. There is no supplement-mania.

Absolutely ZERO pollution and environmental hazard.

2) Modern Medicine

Prevention is hardly communicated. And when communicated, hardly there is changes suggested by terrain, age and season.

Individual’s Prakriti is not considered. Random trials on all – that is the base of the proof. With plenty of side-effects.

Suppressing symptoms is a major selling point. Patients are treated as consumers and selling medicine is a profit so business interests have higher priority in research.

Medicine production = Environmental hazards

Medicine waste = Environmental hazards

Yes, there are some merits in emergency care. But I don’t consider them as sole reasons for saving lives. And they can be integrated with Ayurveda if needed.

Death is trans-technique event. So if someone claims that modern technology-led medical science saves life, it is delusion.
