Autochthonous means Originating where it is found. Of rocks, deposits, etc.; found where they and their constituents were formed. No difference when we talk about humans. Or Human-Gau relation. Or Human-Horse relation. Or Human-Dog relation.
The ideal and smooth relation is Autochthonous.
This is the reason I am firm believer and follower of localization of knowledge and skills. Esp when it is related to health as health decides how we act for our dharma. It is one of the laws of nature that wherever we find a disease, in its very neighbourhood we do find cure for the same disease; that is to say, for the diseases prevailing in India, we need not go beyond India to procure medicines to efficiently cure the disease, for there is in India itself plenty of medicines to counteract the prevailing diseases.
On same note, some real tips:
1) Tea not needed in hot and humid India.
2) Sunflower oil, olive oil, canola oil – not needed in hot and humid
In a study performed by Dr. Sharon Rabinovitz Shenkar, head of the school of criminology department’s addiction program, it was found that taking omega-3 capsules significantly reduces nicotine craving and the number of cigarettes that people smoke a day
Taking omega-3 supplements reduces craving for nicotine and even reduces the number of cigarettes that people smoke a day, according to a new study conducted at the University of Haifa. “The substances and medications used currently to help people reduce and quit smoking are not very effective and cause adverse effects that are not easy to cope with. The findings of this study indicated that omega-3, an inexpensive and easily available dietary supplement with almost no side effects, reduces smoking significantly,” said Dr. Sharon Rabinovitz Shenkar, head of the addictions program at the University of Haifa’s school of criminology department and of the psychopharmacology laboratory at Bar-Ilan, who conducted this study.
Chronic exposure to smoke-derived toxicants is the primary cause of progressive pulmonary and immune dysfunctions, as well as carcinogenesis Cigarette smoking is connected not only to cardiovascular dysfunction, immune system dysfunction and cancer, it also reduces the levels of essential fatty acids in the brain, especially that of omega-3. A deficiency in omega-3 damages the cellular structure of nerve cells and interrupts neurotransmission in areas of the brain involved with feeling pleasure and satisfaction. These areas are essential in reward and decision-making, and are very important in the process of the development, maintenance and relapseof the addiction and to the inability to stop smoking. In simpler terms, omega-3 deficiency makes it harder for the smoker’s body to deal with its craving for another cigarette. “Earlier studies have proven that an imbalance in omega-3 is also related to mental health, depression and the ability to cope with pressure and stress. Pressure and stress, in turn, are associated with the urge to smoke. It is also known that stress and tension levels rise among people who quit smoking. Despite all this, the connection between all these factors had not been studied until now,” Dr. Rabinovitz Shenkar said.
People with bipolar disorder have lower levels of certain omega-3 fatty acids that cross the blood-brain barrier than people who do not, according to researchers from Penn State College of Medicine and the National Institutes of Health. The finding could have implications for dietary interventions for the disorder.
Fatty acids are a major area of interest in bipolar disorder and depression because of their biological importance in the brain. Studies have shown that fatty acid supplementation may be useful for unipolar depression, but the data has been more mixed for bipolar disorder.
The researchers, led by Erika Saunders, associate professor and chair of psychiatry, Penn State College of Medicine, compared fatty acids in 27 people with symptomatic bipolar disorder and 31 healthy control subjects. The group measured levels of different forms of the polyunsaturated fatty acids omega-3 and omega-6. They also collected self-reported information on fatty acid consumption and bipolar medication use. Their results were published in the journal Bipolar Disorders.
Free fatty acids are able to cross the blood-brain barrier, while fatty acids bound to proteins are not. In study subjects with bipolar disorder, the ratio of a free-circulating omega-3 fatty acid called EPA to bound EPA was lower than in other people.
“This means that the availability of omega-3 in the body is lower in bipolar subjects,” Saunders said.
Omega-3 fatty acids are a large component of brain-cell membranes and are important for cell-to-cell communication in the brain. In the study, the ratio of free to bound EPA correlated with clinical bipolar symptoms, specifically mania and tendency towards suicide.
Fatty acids also play an important role in the immune system and the inflammatory system.
“Omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids can shift the balance of inflammation, which we think is important in bipolar disorder,” Saunders said.
Shocking right? 🙂 We deserve it for our sheer incompetence to respect mother nature and blind race for greed!
And can you imagine the impact? Whole plethora of mental disorders! Zombies everywhere!! Psychopaths and rapists! I am not trying to fear-monger! This will be harsh reality of near future! (And so be prepared! More than books, educate your kids for strength building! ) In fact, it is happening all around! Have you not seen increasing number of such psychopath(s) hijacking society?
Who will help?
Of course, गौ माता! (Desi cows with hump. Scientific name: Bos Indicus) 
गौ माता has Surya-Ketu Nadi in hump. It is this special feature that makes her different from other breeds. It is this नाड़ी that transforms प्राणशक्ति from प्राण दाता सूर्य भगवान् ! Vitamin D3, the gross and raw form of biological solar power is bonus!
Milk of Gau mata is full of DHA!
As per this research , DHA with D3 controls Brain Serotonin, Affecting Behavior and Psychiatric Disorders!
Here  , I already shared that serotonin in blood makes mother’s milk more nutritious!
Can you connect the dots?
Desi Gau ghee is full of DHA Docosahexaenoic acid. No other source can compete with the ghee produced by churning method from desi Gau mata’s ethically procured A2 milk. One more condition is that ghee has to be prepared during Sunrise (Vitamin D3). All this is not possible in dairy from where we get your ghee :).
We see increasing number of kids in hyper active mode. ADHD and ASD. Many clinical disorders, such as autism spectrum disorder (ASD), attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, and depression share as a unifying attribute low brain serotonin.
Serotonin production and function is linked to vitamin D and omega-3 fatty acids, suggesting one way these important micronutrients help the brain function and affect the way we behave.
If anyone in your circle is suffering from insomnia (can’t sleep), migraine, headache, you can try this experiment of Desi Gau ghee nasal drops. Make ghee lukeworm and apply 1-2 drops in both nasal passages before sleeping. Do it for 90 days.
PS: Before you try ghee from any gau shala, make sure that calf is given enough milk and milk is taken once calf is satiated for that session. There are no hormone used to increase production of milk. Place should be neat and clean. Cows must graze in open land for 3-4 hrs daily. Cows must get clean drinking water.
It is not advisable for:
1) Pregnant lady or during menses cycle
2) After bath, exercise, meal and intercourse.
I personally prefer before sleeping.
It Is bos indicus who will bless this land again with abundance of digested Prana (her prasad in form of dung, urine and milk). Not some reductionist D#, K, Ca etc but wholesome Prana! Prana that replenish the sick and timid!
Free pasture land for grazing is must for quality prasad! More she graze under sun-light, better would be her prasad (including D3!)
It is important and more cost-effective to imbibe digested Prana (Raw Prana passing through digestive track of mother cow. Churned Prana). When ghee is prepared, potency of digested prana increases manifold! Far far better than Vitamin D3 injections which are difficult to digest for body!
Freely grazing cows => Serotonin + Sun rays + DHA from grass => Quality milk, dung and urine!
Serotonin regulates a wide variety of brain functions and behaviors. Here, we synthesize previous findings that serotonin regulates executive function, sensory gating, and social behavior and that attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, and impulsive behavior all share in common defects in these functions. It has remained unclear why supplementation with omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin D improve cognitive function and behavior in these brain disorders. Here, we propose mechanisms by which serotonin synthesis, release, and function in the brain are modulated by vitamin D and the 2 marine omega-3 fatty acids, eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). Brain serotonin is synthesized from tryptophan by tryptophan hydroxylase 2, which is transcriptionally activated by vitamin D hormone. Inadequate levels of vitamin D (∼70% of the population) and omega-3 fatty acids are common, suggesting that brain serotonin synthesis is not optimal. We propose mechanisms by which EPA increases serotonin release from presynaptic neurons by reducing E2 series prostaglandins and DHA influences serotonin receptor action by increasing cell membrane fluidity in postsynaptic neurons. We propose a model whereby insufficient levels of vitamin D, EPA, or DHA, in combination with genetic factors and at key periods during development, would lead to dysfunctional serotonin activation and function and may be one underlying mechanism that contributes to neuropsychiatric disorders and depression. This model suggests that optimizing vitamin D and marine omega-3 fatty acid intake may help prevent and modulate the severity of brain dysfunction.—Patrick, R. P., Ames, B. N. Vitamin D and the omega-3 fatty acids control serotonin synthesis and action, part 2: relevance for ADHD, bipolar, schizophrenia, and impulsive behavior.
Consumption of non–cow’s milk beverages and serum vitamin D levels in early childhood
“Among children who drank both types of milk, each additional cup of non–cow’s milk beverage consumed was associated with a 5% decrease in 25-hydroxyvitamin D level,” the researchers write. The estimated was adjusted for clinically relevant variables, the authors note.
Interpretation: Consumption of non–cow’s milk beverages was associated with decreased serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D levels in early childhood. This association was modified by cow’s milk consumption, which suggests a trade-off between consumption of cow’s milk fortified with higher levels of vitamin D and non–cow’s milk with lower vitamin D content.
There was intense marketing of Soybean during last 35 years. From doctors to dietitians to Govt of India. Everyone praised it and promoted it. We ate it bindas! We grow it mindlessly! Even in regions where Soya was never sown! 🙂
At the cost of what?
Our traditional oils. Groundnut, sesame (til), coconut. Blaming them unhealthy.
Read this research. In one diet the researchers used coconut oil, which consists primarily of saturated fat. In the second diet about half of the coconut oil was replaced with soybean oil, which contains primarily polyunsaturated fats and is a main ingredient in vegetable oil. That diet corresponded with roughly the amount of soybean oil Americans currently consume.Compared to mice on the high coconut oil diet, mice on the high soybean oil diet showed increased weight gain, larger fat deposits, a fatty liver with signs of injury, diabetes and insulin resistance, all of which are part of the Metabolic Syndrome.
So called healthy Soya is even more risky than fructose we eat in processed food.
This Soya oil is now part of most if not all fast food, including chocolates and biscuits.
Many Soya defenders argue that Chinese are eating Soya for 1000s of years but they are not fat. 🙂 Well, as I discussed many times, all food sources are valid in their local environments. Chinese have proper environment to help digest Soya. We don’t have! And we don’t even cook soya the way Chinese or Japanese or anyone in cold region cooks.
And what we eat as Soybean is way different than what Chinese and Japanese used to eat. Our Soybean is 95% genetically modified!
Local traditions is solution. Eat what your grandmother cooks or eat. Eat what people of your region generally eat. Do not get trapped under the illusion of fancy ads and adopt exotic food.
Same is the case of Sunflower oil. It is for Europeans. Not for us.
Replace your oil intake with more local options. Unrefined oils.
The study also includes extensive analysis of changes in gene expression and metabolite levels in the livers of mice fed these diets. The most striking results were those showing that soybean oil significantly affects the expression of many genes that metabolize drugs and other foreign compounds that enter the body, suggesting that a soybean oil-enriched diet could affect one’s response to drugs and environmental toxicants, if humans show the same response as mice.
The obesity epidemic in the U.S. has led to extensive research into potential contributing dietary factors, especially fat and fructose. Recently, increased consumption of soybean oil, which is rich in polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs), has been proposed to play a causal role in the epidemic. Here, we designed a series of four isocaloric diets (HFD, SO-HFD, F-HFD, F-SO-HFD) to investigate the effects of saturated versus unsaturated fat, as well as fructose, on obesity and diabetes. C57/BL6 male mice fed a diet moderately high in fat from coconut oil and soybean oil (SO-HFD, 40% kcal total fat) showed statistically significant increases in weight gain, adiposity, diabetes, glucose intolerance and insulin resistance compared to mice on a diet consisting primarily of coconut oil (HFD). They also had fatty livers with hepatocyte ballooning and very large lipid droplets as well as shorter colonic crypt length. While the high fructose diet (F-HFD) did not cause as much obesity or diabetes as SO-HFD, it did cause rectal prolapse and a very fatty liver, but no balloon injury. The coconut oil diet (with or without fructose) increased spleen weight while fructose in the presence of soybean oil increased kidney weight. Metabolomics analysis of the liver showed an increased accumulation of PUFAs and their metabolites as well as γ-tocopherol, but a decrease in cholesterol in SO-HFD. Liver transcriptomics analysis revealed a global dysregulation of cytochrome P450 (Cyp) genes in SO-HFD versus HFD livers, most notably in the Cyp3a and Cyp2c families. Other genes involved in obesity (e.g., Cidec, Cd36), diabetes (Igfbp1), inflammation (Cd63), mitochondrial function (Pdk4) and cancer (H19) were also upregulated by the soybean oil diet. Taken together, our results indicate that in mice a diet high in soybean oil is more detrimental to metabolic health than a diet high in fructose or coconut oil.
Imagine if we expose kids to such infinite loops! Their majority growth period will be occupied in solving forced confusion and chaos due to chemically induced loops of craving
About infinite craving loops
Food sold in bazaar also change with time. What you ate in 80s is drastically altered in 2015.
Original ingredients are replaced with chemicals. Not ordinary chemicals but the one that can generated infinite craving loops. You love the food once and become permanent customer 🙂
More than that, you lose interest in home cooked normal food. 🙂
“A diet of junk food not only makes rats fat, but also reduces their appetite for novel foods, a preference that normally drives them to seek a balanced diet, reports a study.”
“The interesting thing about this finding is that if the same thing happens in humans, eating junk food may change our responses to signals associated with food rewards,” says UNSW Professor Morris. “It’s like you’ve just had ice cream for lunch, yet you still go and eat more when you hear the ice cream van come by.”
Imagine if we expose kids to such infinite loops! Their majority growth period will be occupied in solving forced confusion and chaos due to chemically induced loops of craving.
Junk food makes rats lose appetite for balanced diet
A diet of junk food not only makes rats fat, but also reduces their appetite for novel foods, a preference that normally drives them to seek a balanced diet, reports a study published in the open-access journal Frontiers in Psychology.
The study helps to explain how excessive consumption of junk food can change behavior, weaken self-control and lead to overeating and obesity.
The team of researchers, led by Professor Margaret Morris, Head of Pharmacology from the School of Medical Sciences, UNSW Australia, taught young male rats to associate each of two different sound cues with a particular flavor of sugar water – cherry and grape.
Healthy rats, raised on a healthy diet, stopped responding to cues linked to a flavor in which they have recently overindulged. This inborn mechanism, widespread in animals, protects against overeating and promotes a healthy, balanced diet.
But after 2 weeks on a diet that included daily access to cafeteria foods, including pie, dumplings, cookies, and cake – with 150% more calories – the rats’ weight increased by 10% and their behavior changed dramatically. They became indifferent in their food choices and no longer avoided the sound advertising the overfamiliar taste. This indicated that they had lost their natural preference for novelty. The change even lasted for some time after the rats returned to a healthy diet.
Cafeteria diet impairs expression of sensory-specific satiety and stimulus-outcome learning
A range of animal and human data demonstrates that excessive consumption of palatable food leads to neuroadaptive responses in brain circuits underlying reward. Unrestrained consumption of palatable food has been shown to increase the reinforcing value of food and weaken inhibitory control; however, whether it impacts upon the sensory representations of palatable solutions has not been formally tested. These experiments sought to determine whether exposure to a cafeteria diet consisting of palatable high fat foods impacts upon the ability of rats to learn about food-associated cues and the sensory properties of ingested foods. We found that rats fed a cafeteria diet for 2 weeks were impaired in the control of Pavlovian responding in accordance to the incentive value of palatable outcomes associated with auditory cues following devaluation by sensory-specific satiety. Sensory-specific satiety is one mechanism by which a diet containing different foods increases ingestion relative to one lacking variety. Hence, choosing to consume greater quantities of a range of foods may contribute to the current prevalence of obesity. We observed that rats fed a cafeteria diet for 2 weeks showed impaired sensory-specific satiety following consumption of a high calorie solution. The deficit in expression of sensory-specific satiety was also present 1 week following the withdrawal of cafeteria foods. Thus, exposure to obesogenic diets may impact upon neurocircuitry involved in motivated control of behavior.
Our culture has highest morals set as long as food management is concerned. Because we consider food as sacred as our God. Without food, there is no life. Without food, there is no civilization. This land was known as land of abundance. We used to serve food to entire world.
ऋग्वेद के इस मंत्र में तो यहां तक कहा गया है कि धन-सम्पदा का अकेले भोग करने वाला व्यक्ति पाप का ही भोग करता है। अकेले भोग करने वाला व्यक्ति तो व्यर्थ ही अन्न, धन आदि सामग्रियों को प्राप्त करता है क्योंकि ऐसे व्यक्ति के लिए उसकी अपनी सम्पत्तियां ही मृत्यु का कारण बन जाती हैं। ऐसे व्यक्तियों का धन न तो सत्यवादी विद्वानों का पोषण करता है और न ही उसके आपत्तिग्रस्त सम्बन्धियों का। वैदिक काल से इस मंत्र का उच्चारण सामूहिक भोज के बाद किया जाता रहा है।
(English Summary: Your wealth is useless trash if you earn just for own sake. All your such wealth becomes reason for your premature death. Such wealth never helps the society in despair and hence useless. We chant this mantra after serving free food to needy)
Before planning for own meal, we plan for cow’s food, dog’s food, birds’ food. We arrange food for them before we eat.
Now, cows eat leftover food from dustbins. Street dogs also fight for sanitary napkins in trash. Birds still get it because someone told our selfish junta that if you feed the birds, you get good fortune! 🙂 You know…greedy give and take! 🙂. No ulterior motive!
We have hoarders who sale staple food at unimaginable prices! Our milk comes from torture cycle setup by dairy.
Society was never in such food mess before as we are currently. God bless our kids. (Y)
In Sanatana dharma, one God has several forms described in scriptures. As per worshipper’s need, different form is prescribed for worship.
As per scriptures, देह-मध्य is where मूलाधार or abode of गणेश is. For humans, it is near GUT. For animals, in heart. For birds, in stomach. For trees, it is roots. For all living and non-living beings, देह-मध्य varies and so place of गणपति. Based on the place or the host, गणपति’s name, form, color, vehicle and decoration changes. So there are infinite forms of गणपति based on variations in प्राण combinations of each object (living or dead) has.
First and foremost thing we can do to Ganesh Pooja in human form is to maintain proper posture. 🙂 Right posture means stability of प्राण in देह-मध्य.
Second, we can keep our GUT clean. Modak made from Desi Cow ghee helps here in this season. 🙂
देह-मध्य शुचिता (cleansing of center of the body) is important.
Some of us worship Vinayaka, some worship Lambodara, some worship महागणपति.
महागणपति is depicted with pomegranate in hand. Like Modak, it is indicating vital food of the season.
There are three harvesting seasons for pomegranate in India.
1) November-March (Mrig bahar)
2) February-May (Hasta bahar)
3) June – August (Ambe Bahar – flowering happens along with Mango flowering)
In Maharashtra, farmers follow third harvest season. So when this time of the year they celebrate Ganesh Festival, pomegranate is vital part of food and life in all households.महागणपति form prescribes us to eat pomegranate in this season. It is no wonder that Maharashtra celebrates Ganesha with pomegranate.
All Sanatana Dharma symbols give hints related to three worlds 1) Physical body (आधि-भौतिक) 2) Internal working of body (आधि-दैविक) 3) Mental world (आध्यात्मिक)
It will take time understand meaning of pomegranate on आधि-दैविक and आध्यात्मिक plane but it is easy to understand its importance on आधि-भौतिक plane.
“१ अनार १०० बीमार” – “1 pomegranate for 100 diseases.”
This season is known for epidemics. pomegranate can help you keep Nation of trillion+ body cells healthy.
Google and search benefits of pomegranate.
As a part of our worship, we should study these symbols, decipher meanings and live life as per prescriptions.
Sugarcane is also part of महागणपति. It tropical region, this period is either planting or harvesting time for sugarcane.
Eating jaggery in this season is also important for health.
Dr Olumayokun Olajide’s research will now look to produce compound derivatives of punicalagin for a drug that would treat neuro-inflammation
THE onset of Alzheimer’s disease can be slowed and some of its symptoms curbed by a natural compound that is found in pomegranate. Also, the painful inflammation that accompanies illnesses such as rheumatoid arthritis and Parkinson’s disease could be reduced, according to the findings of a two-year project headed by University of Huddersfield scientist Dr Olumayokun Olajide, who specialises in the anti-inflammatory properties of natural products.
Research underway to create pomegranate drug to stem Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.
Modern medicine is re-inventing wheel invented by Ayurveda.
Those who have studied भावप्रकाश निघंटु, knows this very well.
In fact, it is common sense in local culture: “१ अनार १०० बीमार” – “1 pomegranate for 100 diseases.”
PS 1: Observe the trend. Modern chemical based pharma is losing ability to cure sickness using fancy chemical compounds. They are now researching on plant based medicines. If you are wise, embrace your local traditions! Or pay high price later by buying nice fancy pomegranate based medicines 😀
PS 2: Your kids are under going schooling which alieanted them far away from local culture. So they will hardly know all these things 🙂. Solution? De-school them daily 🙂. Spend more time with them. Spend more time in mother nature. She loves all of us and gives potent hints
They are partly right as what is sold in name of ghee in market is indeed not eatable. But by generalizing this to ghee, they stop you having real life substance.
Problem of cholesterol is not because of ghee but due to प्राणविहीन घी & मंदाग्नि
Gau -> Authentic Milk (Without forcing gau a pregnancy, without giving them hormone injections, without compromising calf’s diet, without confining them in jail like abode, allowing them to freely graze, only excessive surplus milk) -> manual churning -> ghee = life
If you love your life, play a treasure hunt game and find out real ghee source. Have it regularly!
