Pregnant Mother’s wish : Never ignore

FetalCells

Elders in family always tell that never ever disrespect pregnant mother and her wishes. Fulfill all of them unless you see them contraindicated (harmful and not good for specific month).

Here is a wonderful research showing how fetus in the womb drives mother’s health, moods and emotions. Child in womb in fact take care of mother’s health!! Protects her!!

Dramatic research has shown that during pregnancy, cells of the fetus often migrate through the placenta, taking up residence in many areas of the mother’s body, where their influence may benefit or undermine maternal health.

The presence of fetal cells in maternal tissue is known as fetal microchimerism. The term alludes to the chimeras of ancient Greek myth–composite creatures built from different animal parts, like the goat-lion-serpent depicted in an Etruscan bronze sculpture.

“Fetal cells can act as stem cells and develop into epithelial cells, specialized heart cells, liver cells and so forth. This shows that they are very dynamic and play a huge role in the maternal body. They can even migrate to the brain and differentiate into neurons,” Boddy says “We are all chimeras.”

Fetal cells may do more than simply migrate to maternal tissues. The authors suggest they can act as a sort of placenta outside the womb, redirecting essential assets from the maternal body to the developing fetus. Cells derived from the fetus–which can persist in maternal tissues for decades after a child is born–have been associated with both protection and increased susceptibility to a range of afflictions, including cancer and autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis.

Take care all would-be parents!! And never life under delusion that you actually have control over your life! We all, all lifeforms are connected and we are here to help each other!!

The alien within: Fetal cells influence maternal health during pregnancy (and long after)

Mother’s little helpers?

While fetal microchimerism is a common occurrence across placental mammals, (including humans), the effects of such cells on maternal health remain a topic of fierce debate in the biological community.

In research appearing in the advanced online edition of the journal Bioessays, Boddy and her colleagues review the available literature on fetal microchimerism and human health, applying an evolutionary framework to predict when fetal cells are inclined to act cooperatively to enhance maternal health and when their behavior is likely to be competitive, occasionally leading to adverse effects on the mother.

Birth Season and Diseases Risk : Role of Marriage Muhurt

Marriage dates

For Sanatana dharma followers, marriage is a sacred relation. It is not just for mutual enjoyment of husband and wife but to pass on torch from one generation to another so that future generations don’t live in misery.

We as a parents do so much future planning so that our kids don’t face financial troubles in life. To me, this is not needed at all as such protection will only make them weaker by each generation.

What is need of the hour then?

Better family planning. Not lust-driven accidental births but planned healthy birth. In our culture, marriages are often planned based on muhurt. Muhurt is decided based on Kundali of bride and groom. And best day from favorable season, possibly from हेमंत, शिशिर & वसंत season is decided. That day is day of celebration for family. It is actually a family planning day! But we ignore it and delay planning for few years!

Point here is: Muhurt and favorable season play critical role in health of upcoming generation. If you are planning for child, select proper day and season. If you are near tropical, हेमंत, शिशिर & वसंत are fine for you. As you move away from tropical region, towards north or south pole, adjust few months to summer and fall. But never lust-driven accidental planning.

Not only conception planning, it affects  mother-child duo all 9 months.

Here is the interesting research supporting role of season and possible disease risks.

Uncovering exposures responsible for birth season – disease effects: a global study

https://academic.oup.com/jamia/article/doi/10.1093/jamia/ocx105/4265709/Uncovering-exposures-responsible-for-birth-season

It has becoming increasingly clear that prenatal and early childhood environmental exposures can affect one’s health in adulthood. However, studying these links poses special problems. “A conventional prospective study would be lengthy, costly, and above all else, unethical,” said study leader Nicholas Tatonetti, PhD, an assistant professor of biomedical informatics at Columbia University Medical Center (CUMC) and in Columbia’s Data Science Institute, and a co-author of the paper. “But we can address these questions by analyzing health records, looking for connections between birth month — as a proxy for environmental exposures — and actual health outcomes.”

The study also demonstrated that the strongest factor in determining whether a child would later be diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) was not birth season. Rather, children who were younger than their peers at the time they were enrolled in school had a higher risk of ADHD, with an 18 percent difference in risk between the youngest and oldest children. While the findings of this study are similar to those of single-country studies, this is the first to investigate relative age and disease in multiple countries with four different school enrollment cutoff dates.

“Overall, our findings demonstrate the importance of environmental factors, including socio-environmental factors such as relative age, on the development of childhood diseases,” said Dr. Boland.

Season Driven Pregnancy Planning

This is very critical note.

In sane dharma driven society, all activities are planned based on ऋत| All stages of life , all stages of year – they were respected while planning any new step in life.

मुहूर्त for Marriage is not mere some auspicious day but a perfect date to plan गृहस्थी! Based on innate nature of the male and female planning to marry, which is being reflected in their Kundali(s), perfect date is planned. A date that respects stages of would-be पति-पत्नी. A date that respects season of the year. A date that can help them to planned best progeny. Now this date is only used for Honeymoon planning! And sadly, most births happen by accident, without मुहूर्त, without desire to invite soul in best physical body!

The best way to reduce a child’s chances of developing asthma might be making sure Mom had enough vitamin D during the second trimester, a new study from the University of Kansas shows.

Solution? Go back to roots. Respect seasons. Identify वसंत’s love from वर्षा’s lust.

In this research, it is shown how sunlight exposure in specific trimester affects immunity of the child.

This is very easy to observe. Most pregnant mothers in higher middle class and elite class, spend their time in controlled AC home/office during pregnancy with MINIMAL exposure to the sun. In slums, it is forced non-exposure to the sun.

Auto-immune disorders are inevitable in such situations. 🙁

In short, The Sun, our प्राण-powerhouse, our father, is taking care of Mother Earth’s womb. And we must get exposure to it, to replenish our daily प्राण requirements. For pregnant mothers, it becomes critical because they are shaping one more universe in their womb.

If you don’t have asthma, maybe it’s because Mom experienced a sunny second trimester, health economist finds

http://news.ku.edu/2016/03/30/if-you-don%E2%80%99t-have-asthma-maybe-it%E2%80%99s-because-mom-experienced-sunny-second-trimester-health

The best way to reduce a child’s chances of developing asthma might be making sure Mom had enough vitamin D during the second trimester, a new study from the University of Kansas shows.

The most cost-effective way to get Mom more vitamin D could be as simple as health recommendations that consider the benefits of soaking up a little more sun, a practical and cost-effective way to get a dose of D.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 1 in 12 of us in the U.S. suffers from asthma.

“Our health system spends billions and billions treating asthma, and there’s lots and lots of opportunity costs,” said David Slusky, assistant professor of economics. “Pain and suffering, loss of productivity and premature death — asthma has all of those.”

When resources are being used inefficiently, that’s when Slusky and his fellow economists like to step in.

They knew about a recent medical hypothesis by Scott Weiss and Augusto Litonjua, both of whom are physicians with Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston and professors at Harvard Medical School. Weiss and Litonjua hypothesize that vitamin D levels in the second trimester of pregnancy influence the probability that a fetus will develop asthma later in life.

Slusky and colleagues Nils Wernerfelt of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Richard Zeckhauser of Harvard’s Kennedy School put the medical hypothesis to the test using an economist’s tools, such as survey and health data.

“This is the golden age in the way that data about hospital discharges, insurance claims, birth certificates and death certificates are more and more available and more and more set up for researchers,” Slusky said. “And that allows economists to get really large sample sizes with not a lot of cost.”

Using data from hospital discharges in two states and from a national survey, Slusky and his colleagues looked at where and when asthmatics were born.

Then the economists looked at the measurements of sunlight in the birth locations when the asthmatics’ mothers would have been in their second trimesters.  Sunlight is where Americans get more than 90 percent of our vitamin D.
