Having meal used to consider sacred activity in local culture. It used to be considered critical so people used to eat by sitting on the floor and enjoying food fully.

So when someone is eating, there used to be helping hands to serve them. At special days like marriage, family members take care of all guests (Atithi(s)) and serve them food with love. They feel pride in contributing sacred meals of near and dear ones.

Now?

Now we arrange buffet and guests have to arrange queue like criminals do in jail. No respect for guests. It is different thing that guests also have no respect for host in most cases 😀

Guests eat standing and get engaged in talks. Eating happens as background process as neglected task. No self-respect.

Side effects
• Due to lack of attention to food, enough secretion of stomach acids and enzymes does not occur -> lead to indigestion -> sickness in near future
• Due to standing position, Apana Vayu (The downward force described in Ayurveda) is deranged. -> lead to indigestion-> sickness in near future

Solution?
• Always be seated while eating.
• Give complete focus to food. Talks can wait. Gossips can wait. Cell phone can wait. Food cannot wait.

Desi Cow Ghee, Omega-3 and Cancer protection

Ghee to fight cancer
Ghee to fight cancer

If I say “Omega-3 Fatty Acids cures cancer”, our so called rational and educated mind will appreciate feat of the modern science and start googling about ‘Source for Omega-3″ 😀.

But if I say that “Ghee Prepared using manual churning method from the ethically procured milk of Desi Gau mata” can cure any disease, same arrogant educated mind will either make fun of the fact or ignore it as bigoted view! 😀

Tumors are called ‘Arbuda’ in Ayurveda. Desi Gau mata’s milk, ghee, mutra and gobar is primary treatment for any form of ‘Arbuda’. We don’t really need complex “Omega-3 Fatty Acids” complex science. Mother helps to cure is a common sense for those who live in the laps of the nature.

Take that! Respect your roots! Invest time and wealth in protecting Desi Gau. Have her prasad as medicine, be healthy forever (Y).

Thanks to Modern Medicine for fear mongering about ghee and modern dairy for looting wealth from villages, society’s intake of ghee is reduced drastically in past 30 years. This is the same period, cancer and heart cases have increased.


How exactly it works?

Gobar represents and is full of Apana Prana. It helps body to eliminate toxic waste/junk DNAs and cleanse Prana-flows.

Urine/Mutra is Ganga Jal. It has quality to balance tridosha. So further damage is paused.

Ghee is full of omega-3. As per below research, it improves quality and treatment of cancer patients. It actually helps in rejuvenation.

Omega-3 Fatty Acids May Help Improve Treatment and Quality of Life in Cancer Patients

http://www.nutritioncare.org/Press_Room/2015/Omega-3_Fatty_Acids_May_Help_Improve_Treatment_and_Quality_of_Life_in_Cancer_Patients/

Adding omega-3 fatty acids to anti-tumor medications may improve treatment response and quality of life for cancer patients according to a new study by researchers at the University Hospitals of Leicester in the United Kingdom.

The study, published today in the OnlineFirst version of the Journal of Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition (JPEN), the research journal of the American Society for Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition (A.S.P.E.N.), examined 50 patients with advanced pancreatic cancer.

Patients were given 1,000 mg of gemcitabine weekly followed by up to 100 g of omega-3 rich lipid emulsion for three weeks followed by a rest week. This was continued for up to six cycles, progression, unacceptable toxicity, patient request, or death.

The study found evidence of activity in response and disease stabilization rates, reduction in liver metastasis volume, and improved quality of life scores in this group of patients.

While this is the first study to use omega-3 fatty acids with a chemotherapy agent in a cancer setting, the researchers believe the results are encouraging enough to warrant further investigation in a randomized phase III trial.

Docosahexaenoic acid content is significantly higher in ghrita prepared by traditional Ayurvedic method

Background:

Ghee (clarified butter) also known as ghrita, has been utilized for thousands of years in Ayurveda. Ghee is mostly prepared by traditional method in Indian households or by direct cream method at industry level. Ayurvedic classics mention that ghrita made from cow milk is superior. However, there is no scientific comparison available on preparation methods and essential fatty acids content of ghrita.

Objective:

To investigate fatty acid composition of ghrita prepared by traditional/Ayurvedic method and commercial method (direct cream method).

Materials and Methods:

Fatty Acid Methyl Esters (FAME) extracted from ghrita samples were analysed on Gas Chromatography (GC) Shimadzu B using capillary column BPX70 (0.32 mm*60 m, ID of 0.25 mm). The fatty acids in the samples were identified by comparing peaks with the external standard 68A (Nu-Chek-Prep, Inc.USA). Significant differences between the experimental groups were assessed by analysis of variance.

Results:

Distribution of fatty acids was compared in ghrita samples prepared by traditional method and direct cream method which is commercially used. Saturated fatty acids were predominant in both the groups. Mono unsaturated fatty acids and poly unsaturated fatty acids were in the range of 17-18% and 3-6% respectively. DHA content was significantly higher in ghee prepared by traditional method using curd starter fermentation.

Conclusion:

The findings suggested that ghrita prepared by traditional ayurvedic methods contains higher amount of DHA; Omega-3 long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids, which is a major component of retinal and brain tissues and remains important in prevention of various diseases.

त्रय उपस्तम्भा: आहार: स्वप्नो ब्रह्मचर्यमिति (चरक संहिता सूत्र. 11/35)

threepillars
अर्थात् शरीर और स्वास्थ्य को स्थिर, सुदृढ़ और उत्तम बनाये रखने के लिए आहार, स्वप्न (निद्रा) और ब्रह्मचर्य – ये तीन उपस्तम्भ हैं। ‘उप’ यानी सहायक और ‘स्तम्भ’ यानी खम्भा। इन तीनों उप स्तम्भों का यथा विधि सेवन करने से ही शरीर और स्वास्थ्य की रक्षा होती है।

Are we not living terribly anti-life routine? Do you love your life? your family? If yes, act.

Isn’t it a heinous crime to waste human life? Yes, it is terrible crime. It is called प्रज्ञापराध.

धी धृति स्मृति विभ्रष्ट: कर्मयत् कुरुतऽशुभम्।
प्रज्ञापराधं तं विद्यातं सर्वदोष प्रकोपणम्।। — (चरक संहिता; शरीर. 1/102)

अर्थात् धी (बुद्धि), धृति (धैर्य) और स्मृति (स्मरण शक्ति) के भ्रष्ट हो जाने पर मनुष्य जब अशुभ कर्म करता है तब सभी शारीरिक और मानसिक दोष प्रकुपित हो जाते हैं। इन अशुभ कर्मों को प्रज्ञापराध कहा जाता है। जो प्रज्ञापराध करेगा उसके शरीर और स्वास्थ्य की हानि होगी और वह रोगग्रस्त हो ही जाएगा।

If there is sickness, man would jump between sleep and food, try to correct them, but will hardly pay attention to Brahmcharya :). Such is the shoddy state of our modern living. Think about it.

Processed Bananas : Avoid

banana-ripening

I was planning to reply my friend @vir sumit about his query on incompatible food items (Banana and milk). But before coming to the point, I thought to write separate note on Banana and market practices.

Bananna bunches are harvested when they are 70% to 80% ripen. Rest of the ripening process happen on ground. As per my personal experience, untreated banana takes little more than a week to become fully ripen. Till then, they remain shriveled and green. This is natural method. Ideal and healthy.

What market follows?

8 days, 9 days, 10 days – these are too long durations to wait for our generations of vendors. They cannot wait so long. To meet the regular domestic requirement, green banana bunches are artificially ripened.
Smoke treatment is one of the most common methods adopted to induce ripening. In this method, banana bunches are exposed to smoke generated by burning kerosene stove inside the airtight chambers for 24 h. As a result, we get artificially ripen yellow bananas, treated with carbon monoxide.

Another method is that bananas are artificially ripened in local markets by the use of banned chemical calcium carbide.

Both are ugly and hazardous methods. So don’t expect banana benefits when you have no choice but artificially ripen bananas.

Buy half ripen bunches and let them get ripen naturally at home. Or else, face the consequences of Carbon monoxide and calcium carbide.

Priceless essence : Ghee

Ghee
Desi Gau mata’s milk is nectar. Ghee prepared from it is priceless essence. For umpteen times, I wrote in favor Gau mata’s prasad (Ghee, Milk, Gobar, Butter milk, urine.).
 
Desi Gau’s Ghee prepared by churning is priceless. I have paid 2500 for 1 kg. And it turned out worth. Ghee is full of Prana (Due to Churning, inherent Prana of Maa’s milk gets multiplied manifold). Yes, we call it Prana. Not Oxygen or Nitric Oxide. They are mere physical manifestations of Prana. Like Microbes are. Like we all are.
 
Other churning outcome we use is Honey. Same – full of prana.
 
In modern science, they denotes NO. Nitric Oxide. Full of Nitric Oxide.
 
Nitric Oxide (NO), gaseous, free radical was considered by modern science as danger for body. But now they are finding utility :).
 
Scientific dogma has the respiration process involving only two elements — oxygen and carbon dioxide. Specifically, the delivery of oxygen from lungs to tissues, and the removal of the waste product, carbon dioxide, through exhaling.
 
Recently published online in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS), Stamler and colleagues demonstrate that nitric oxide is essential for the delivery of oxygen to the cells and tissues that need it. [1]
 
Lo! NO (nitric oxide) is critical for respiration. Any wonder why Honey and Ghee are base medicines for all Ayurvedic treatments?
 
In this old post, I also shared why NO is critical for brain. (https://www.facebook.com/marut.mitra.5/posts/364920823632832)
 
Now read this Hindi note I received on whatsapp. Without any unnecessary lab experiments, it was easy to identify importance of Ghee and Honey. But we make fun of those who are critical about saving Gau mata. We make fun of those who do regular Homam using Gau gobar and ghee.
 
गोघृत का चिकित्सा में उपयोग
 
आयुर्वेद के मतानुसार देशी गाय का घी अमृत के समान स्वास्थ्य-कारक, रसायन, अग्निप्रदीपक, शक्ति, बल, वृध्दि, कांति, लावण्य, तेज, आयुष्यवर्ध्दक है। यह स्निग्ध, सुगंधित, रुचिकर, मेधा एवं स्मरण शक्ति को बढ़ाने वाला, शुक्रवर्ध्दक, विषनाशक, त्रिदोष नाशक, श्रम निवारक और स्वर को मधुरता प्रदान करता है। गाय का घी हमेशा दूध को जमाकर, दही बनाकर उसे मथकर मक्खन निकालना चाहिए और उसे गरम करके घी बनाना चाहिए। क्रीम से बनाया हुआ घी अपेक्षाकृत कम उपयोगी होता है। गाय के घी से माइग्रेन, रक्तविकार, पाण्डु, कामला, उदावर्त, फोड़े-फुंसी, जोड़ों के दर्द, चोट, सूजन, सफेद दाग एवं कुष्ट रोग की चिकित्सा होती है। अनेक आयुर्वेदिक शास्त्रीय योगों में गाय के घी का उपयोग किया जाता है। कई आयुर्वेदिक फार्मेसियां घृत बनाकर बेचती भी हैं। जैसे अर्जुन घृत-हृदय रोग, महापंचागव्य घृत-मिर्गी, अनिद्रा, स्मृति क्षीण आदि, मृत्युश्चश्रेदी घृत-सांप, विषैले कीट एवं चूहों का विष नाशक, फल घृत-वंध्या दोष नाशक, महागौर्याद्य घृत-नासूर, जख्म एवं घाव, पंचकोलादि घृत या षज्ञपटल घृत-गुल्म, ज्वर, उगर रोग, ग्रहणी, मंदाग्नि, श्वास, कांस, शोथ एवं ऊर्ध्व वायु नाशक। चर्म रोग एवं फोड़ों पर लगाने के लिये गाय के घी को बार-बार पानी में धोकर प्रयोग करना चाहिए। पानी से धोया हुआ घी खाने में प्रयोग करना चाहिए। ज्वर, हैजा, अरुचि, मंदाग्नि आदि रोगों में घी का उपयोग नहीं करना चाहिए।
 
पुराना घृत : गाय का घी जितना पुराना होता जाता है, उतना ही गुणवर्ध्दक होता जाता है। पुराना घी तीक्ष्ण, खट्टा, तीखा, उष्ण, श्रवण शक्ति को बढ़ाने वाला घाव को मिटाने वाला, योनि रोग, मस्तक रोग, नेत्र रोग, कर्ण रोग, मूच्छा, ज्वर, श्वांस, खांसी, संग्रहणी, उन्माद, कृमि, विष आदि दोषों को नष्ट करता है। दर वर्ष पुराने घी को कोंच, ग्यारह वर्ष पुराने घी को महाघृत कहते हैं।
गो घृत के प्रयोग : यज्ञ में देशी गाय के घी की आहुतियां देने से पर्यावरण शुध्द होता है। गाय के घी में चावल मिलाकर यज्ञ में आहुतियां देने से इथिलीन आक्साइड और फाममोल्डिहाइड नामक यौगिक गैस के रूप में उत्पन्न होते हैं। इससे प्राण वायु शुध्द होती है। ये दोनों यौगिक जीवाणरोधक होते हैं। इनका प्रयोग आपरेशन थियेटर को कीटाणु रहित बनाने में आज भी किया जाता है। प्रातः सूर्योदय के समय एवं सायंकाल सूर्यास्त के समय गाय का घी और चावल मिलाकर दो-दो आहूतियां निम्नलिखित मंत्र से देने पर आसपास का वातावरण कीटाणुरहित हो जाता है। अग्नि में घी और चावल की आहुतियां निम्नलिखित मंत्र बोलकर देनी चाहिए-
सूर्योदय के समय : प्रजापतये स्वाहा।
प्रजापतये इदं न मम।
सूर्याय स्वाहा, सूर्याय इदं न मम।
सूर्यास्त के समय : प्रजापतये स्वाहा।
प्रजापतये इदं न मम।
अग्नये स्वाहा, अग्नये इदं न मम।
 
गाय क घी से आहुतियां देने पर यह देखा गया है कि जितनी दूर तक यज्ञ के धुएं का प्रभाव फैलता है, उतनी ही दूर तक वायुमंडल में किसी प्रकार के कीटाणु नहीं रहते। वह क्षेत्र पूरी तरह से कीटाणुओं से मुक्त हो जाता है। कृत्रिम वर्षा कराने के लिए वैज्ञानिक, प्रोपलीन आक्साइड गैस का प्रयोग करते हैं। गाय के घी से आहुति देने पर यह गैस प्राप्त होती है। प्राचीन काल में भू-जल का उपयोग कृषि में सिंचाई के लिए नहीं किया जाता था। यज्ञ होते रहने से समय-समय पर वर्षा होती रहती थी।
गो घृत का औषधीय उपयोग : स्मरण शक्ति बढ़ाने के लिए प्रतिदिन रात्रि को सोते समय गो-दो बूंद देशी गाय का गुनगुना घी दोनों नाक के छेदों में डालें। यह घी रात भर मस्तिष्क को प्राणवायु पहुंचाता रहता है और विद्युत तरंगों से मस्तिष्क को चार्ज करता रहता है। इससे मस्तिष्क की शक्ति बहुत बढ़ जाती है। यदि यह क्रिया प्रातः, अपराह्न और रात को सोते समध कई माह तक की जाती रहे तो श्वास के प्रवाह में आने वाली बाधाएं दूर हो जाती हैं और अनेक पुराने रोग ठीक हो जाते हैं। शुष्कता, सूजन, रक्तस्राव, सर्दी, सायनस संक्रमण, नासिका गिल्टी आदि ठीक हो जाते हैं और वायु मार्ग खुल जाने से श्वास की बाधा दूर हो जाती है। नाक में घी डालने के साथ-साथ दो बूंद घी नाभि में डालें और फिर अंगुली से दोनों ओर थोड़ी देर घुमाएं। गाय का घी अपने हाथ से पांव के तलवों पर मालिश करें, इससे बहुत अच्छी नींद आती है, शांति और आनन्द प्राप्त होता है
 
Do not waste time in futile proof search. Mata is the answer for all our modern issues. Save her. Worship her. Use her prasad and remain healthy forever!

Molecular and Functional Basis Established for Nitric Oxide Joining Oxygen and Carbon Dioxide in Respiratory Cycle

Discovery could lead to treatment focus on red blood cell dysfunction in cardiovascular diseases and blood disorders

Scientific dogma has the respiration process involving only two elements — oxygen and carbon dioxide. Specifically, the delivery of oxygen from lungs to tissues, and the removal of the waste product, carbon dioxide, through exhaling.

Recently published online in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS), Stamler and colleagues demonstrate that nitric oxide is essential for the delivery of oxygen to the cells and tissues that need it.

Stamler, MD, a Professor of Medicine at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine and Cardiologist at University Hospitals Case Medical Center, led a team that showed that nitric oxide must accompany hemoglobin to enable blood vessels to open and then supply oxygen to tissues.

Doctors have long known that a major disconnect exists between the amount of oxygen carried in the blood and the amount of oxygen delivered to the tissues. Until now, they had no way to explain the discrepancy. The new findings show that nitric oxide within the red blood cell itself is the gatekeeper to the respiratory cycle – nitric oxide makes the cycle run.

“The bottom line is that we have discovered the molecular basis of blood flow control in the respiratory cycle loop,” Stamler said. “It’s in the hemoglobin protein itself, which has the ability to deliver the nitric oxide together with oxygen. The simplified textbook view of two gases carried by hemoglobin is missing an essential element – nitric oxide – because blood flow to tissues is actually more important in most circumstances than how much oxygen is carried by hemoglobin. So the respiratory cycle is actually a three-gas system.”

Cow Milk and Prebiotic Medium

Everyone is talking about probiotic food nowadays. Sadly, this awareness is mostly limited to two jargon 1) Probiotic 2) Prebiotic

Let us try to understand, what they are!

Probiotics are live microorganisms that live in gastrointestinal (GI) tract and are beneficial for their hosts and prevent certain diseases.

Prebiotics are non‐digestible food ingredients that beneficially affect the host by selectively stimulating the growth and activity of probiotic bacteria in the colon. All dietary prebiotics and/or dietary fiber provide the physiological and beneficial effects and, therefore, are considered as essential nutrients.

In post antibiotic obsession era, everyone is now praising microbes. But no one is talking about microbes sustenance medium. Healthy bacteria survives when their environment is potent to provide them continuous nutrition.

Prebiotic – this is where desi zebu cattle milk plays wonder. It is potent prebiotic.

गौर्धयति मरुतां शरवस्युर्माता मघोनाम |
युक्ता वह्नी रथानाम || (ऋगवेद ८-९४-१)

गौ माता दूध पिलाती है, उस दूधसे संतृप्त हो मरुत वीर रथसंचालक (वेगवान) बनते है|

As you read translation, only desi Gau mata’s A2 milk is potent enough to provide them driving force ( रथसंचालक). If such potent medium is not provided (like many Vegan friends find alternative solution in Vegan Dahi made up using coconut or badam or any other nuts) to them, health bacteria may die soon, before reaching to their destination i.e. GUT. Dead probiotic means more danger for digestive track! More efforts to clean the track! Acidity! Ulcer!

Probiotics promote gut health through stimulation, rather than suppression, of the innate immune system. Our first lines of defense are digestive chemistry and innate immunity.

For a probiotic to work it must arrive alive in the colon. They arrive alive only when they have enough food while travelling and are acid proof (Protected from gastric acids). It has been recommended that food containing probiotic bacteria should contain at least 10^6 live micro organisms per g or mL at the time of consumption to have protective effects such as maintenance of normal intestinal micro flora, enhancement of the immune system, reduction of lactose intolerance and anti-cancer activity.
Along with that probiotics should resist the natural barrier of high acidity and bile content in the gastrointestinal tract (GIT) and show their survivability and activity in the colon.

Only Desi Gau milk based fermentation has both powers. (Do your experiments if you have doubts).

Which Desi Gau milk?

या शर्धाय मारुताय सवभानवे शरवो.अम्र्त्यु धुक्षत |
या मर्ळीके मरुतां तुराणां या सुम्नैरेवयावरी || Rugved – Book 6 – Hymn 48 – Verse 12

Translation
Gau who provides immortal nectar milk for powerful self-illuminating Marut(s); the one who provides happiness/comfort to swift-footed(quick runner) Marut(s), that divine Gau comes to your home only by glorious efforts and actions.

Gau mata can give such nectar milk only when she is worshiped by brave men doing selfless glorious acts for society. Gau seva for selfish motives is not desirable. So if you purchase milk from professional gau shala, you will still will not avail full benefits of nectar. You first need to worship Gau mata whose milk you want to avail. Without worship, you cannot connect with her. Without connecting with her, it is not possible to receive her blessings.

Omega-3 fatty acid = Desi cow ghee = Disorders free mind and brain.

This is how गौ माता keeps her children sane and healthy.

The Moment her prasad is out of regular food, disorders are expected to arrive at door-step. If not you, your next generation.

For other terrains, there are alternatives like nuts and fish but for us, living on grassland plains, ghee plays critical role as it is the only and critical source of fatty acids.

Lower availability of omega-3 fatty acids associated with bipolar disorder

http://news.psu.edu/story/382628/2015/11/25/research/lower-availability-omega-3-fatty-acids-associated-bipolar-disorder

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.

 

Science of Hindu(Sanatana) Social/Community Meal rules

Science of Social Meal rules
Science of Social Meal rules
30 years back, this was norm across Bharat. You go to anyone’s home, attend any marriage, stay at dharma-shala, meal was always served in a row and food was consumed as Prasad, slowly, gradually and with silence.
 
Serving meal was considered sacred duty. No social status comes into the picture. Everyone serves each other one by one.
 
Sitting in a row for meal is called पंगत or पंक्ति. Everyone sits together and stand up together. This was unwritten custom. Even if you are done with your meal, you sit until everyone completes.
 
If we go 100 years back, there were much stricter rules. For example, you only eat with someone from your वर्ण / जाति / वर्ग / age.
 
And this was considered as discrimination. Right? What a biased and bigoted society India was. These all Hindus! 😀
———————–
Spoiling dharma, all under the shadow of utter ignorance.
 
These rules were never designed to discriminate but to support healthy life. All rituals were designed for मानव कल्याण.
 
Let me give you one example to build the base.
 
“The handshake represents a deeply established social custom. In recent years, however, there has been increasing recognition of the importance of hands as vectors for infection, leading to formal recommendations and policies regarding hand hygiene in hospitals and other health care facilities,”
University of California, Los Angeles is a well-known university and respected name in medical science research. Physicians here suggested to ban handshake in hospitals. They found that despite handwash, handshakes transmit diseases. This is coming from the culture where handshake is deeply ingrained culture. I appreciate scientific temper.
When we handshake, we exchange प्राण. And when the incompatible प्राण is exchanged, we fall sick. We become carrier of sickness (physical and mental).
 
Eating food is highly energy-exchange activity. Lot of different type प्राण is consumed and emitted. When you sit with someone having typical प्राणिक footprint similar to yours, chances of exchanging incompatible प्राण are minimal.
Our results confirm that an occupied space is microbially distinct from an unoccupied one, and demonstrate for the first time that individuals release their own personalized microbial cloud.
 
And since everyone sits together and stand up together, there is a rhythm created, a larger organism, virtual entity, sum total of all compatible प्राणमय शरीर (s). This helps to combat any unforeseen दूषण of food and all प्राणिक impurities associated with it. You see, there was hardly any event of food poisoning. 😉
 
[Hint: Read this paper. We all have unique microbial cloud. https://peerj.com/articles/1258/]
 
This is just a first step to understand eating ritual. Need to spend more time in contemplation for finer conclusion in future. 🙂 (y)
 
Unfortunately, all modern spiritual guru(s) too don’t follow this anymore. Only place I observed this is Kumbh, among SAdhus. 🙂
 
Do not forget, सनातन धर्म is for मानव कल्याण. Keep aside all your rational doubts and act. See the difference. Then we really don’t need all these futile rational analysis. 😉

Humans differ in their personal microbial cloud

https://peerj.com/articles/1258/

Dispersal of microbes between humans and the built environment can occur through direct contact with surfaces or through airborne release; the latter mechanism remains poorly understood. Humans emit upwards of 106biological particles per hour, and have long been known to transmit pathogens to other individuals and to indoor surfaces. However it has not previously been demonstrated that humans emit a detectible microbial cloud into surrounding indoor air, nor whether such clouds are sufficiently differentiated to allow the identification of individual occupants. We used high-throughput sequencing of 16S rRNA genes to characterize the airborne bacterial contribution of a single person sitting in a sanitized custom experimental climate chamber. We compared that to air sampled in an adjacent, identical, unoccupied chamber, as well as to supply and exhaust air sources. Additionally, we assessed microbial communities in settled particles surrounding each occupant, to investigate the potential long-term fate of airborne microbial emissions. Most occupants could be clearly detected by their airborne bacterial emissions, as well as their contribution to settled particles, within 1.5–4 h. Bacterial clouds from the occupants were statistically distinct, allowing the identification of some individual occupants. Our results confirm that an occupied space is microbially distinct from an unoccupied one, and demonstrate for the first time that individuals release their own personalized microbial cloud.

Banning The Handshake From Health Care Settings: Doctors Say Social Custom Spreads Disease Regardless Of Handwashing

http://www.medicaldaily.com/banning-handshake-health-care-settings-doctors-say-social-custom-spreads-disease-regardless-290122

The Western social practice of handshaking has only grown more popular in recent decades with variations up high and down low now often accompanied by the ubiquitous “bro hug.” However, some doctors are pushing to “ban the handshake” in hospitals and doctor’s offices across the country to prevent the spread of communicable disease.

Physicians from the University of California, Los Angeles, argue in an editorial published Thursday in JAMA that handshaking thwarts the practice of handwashing to limit the spread of dangerous pathogens. Soon, health care workers and patients may see the following advisory: “Handshake-free zone: To protect your health and the health of those around you, please refrain from shaking hands while on the premises.”

Although research has long associated handwashing with decreases in bacterial colonization and hospital-acquired infections, only 40 percent of clinicians and other health care workers comply with such mandatory hygiene policies. Among patients and visitors, handwashing hygiene is even lower. And alcohol-based rubs, the most touted solution to hospital hygiene problems, remain ineffective against such dangerous pathogens as Clostridium difficile.

Food chain correction is CRITICAL

MentalDisorders

Apart from external environmental factors affecting mind space, it is our polluted food and water sources, that play major role in weakening our psyche and slip ourselves in the mode societal corruption.

When people talk about neurological disorders, they consider only those disorders which exhibit visible symptoms (Autism, Phobias etc). For me, lack of integrity or moral perversion is also a neurological disorder, albeit silent one. It is getting diagnosed, only during harvesting time of past deeds of individual. And in most cases, it is never diagnosed during life time. 

Corruption in society is resultant of polluted food origins. While working on correcting political system, it is equally important to see that majority of us, get nutritional food, both physical and mental. 

Mental food by disinfecting Education system, physical food by disinfecting agriculture.

If you think you are sane citizen, contribute, in your capacity possible, for politics, education and agriculture.

With corrupted and weak psyche and body of majority in us, it is difficult to penetrate sane reformative ideas in our minds.

You go and explain, ideal democracy but if the other person is devoid of pure food and water, it is difficult for him being receptive and understand sane ideas necessary to change the Nation’s destiny from current shoddy state. Even if he/she understands, he/she won’t do much in action due to weak body and mind. For survival, compromises happen and saga of personal involvement in corruption continues.

Food -> Education -> Political awareness -> Critical Mass for change -> Revolution

Any upheaval, out of reaction, would remain temporary since roots are corrupt and in hibernation. With favorable environment to flourish, weakness will sprout again and reforms will topple again towards nadir.

If roots are replaces by food and education, it is difficult for any external force to break strong National fabric.

Political awareness minus Food and Education -> Revolution minus prolonged stability.

Strive for prolonged happiness.

Case Study 1
==============
During recent talk with my family, one shocking thing was discussed about fast food habit.

Some of my nephew’s friends are migrants. Well-to-do migrants from other states. Settling down in our city. So these families often eat outside. Almost everyday, something comes from outside. Junk or almost junk.

These kids don’t really like home cooked food now. Addicted to the taste of junk.

One couple working in IT in pune I know.1 Gas cylinder works for almost 1 year for them. You can imagine their usage.

==========================
Why are we so addicted to junk food?

Our gut microbes dictate what we eat. If you have a healthy gut, the microbes will direct you to foods that are required by your body for fitness. However if your gut microbes are disturbed they may start cravings for food that destroys your health. Parents of autistic children noticed food cravings in their children which aggravated their conditions. They then devised diets that controlled this and led to improved behavior. Many of them blamed the vaccines and the consequent use of antibiotics for vaccine after effects for this. They have been traditionally ridiculed for their ‘strange theories’ that don’t fit the industrial model of medicine. However researchers are now confirming what these ‘unscientific’ parents discovered.

=============================

Now my dear doctor friends debate with me that it is safer to give antibiotics to avoid risks. What risks? Why are we so fearful and fear mongering? Why can’t doctor sense right condition and avoid unnecessary antibiotics and by that protect GUT microbes?

Or at least, think and prefer pause on your eating cravings. Even toxins rich food cooked at home is worth compare to junk/restaurant food.

Reason? When cooked at home, it is full of microbes suited to you and family. So relatively safe. Outside food?

All random, chaotic microbes with your food. You never know when they will alter your eating habits and control you like slave. 🙂

Is eating behavior manipulated by the gastrointestinal microbiota? Evolutionary pressures and potential mechanisms

MicrobesFoodHabit

Like microscopic puppetmasters, microbes may control the eating behavior of hosts through a number of potential mechanisms including microbial manipulation of reward pathways, production of toxins that alter mood (shown in pink, diffusing from a microbe), changes to receptors including taste receptors, and hijacking of neurotransmission via the vagus nerve (gray), which is the main neural axis between the gut and the brain.

 

Abstract

Microbes in the gastrointestinal tract are under selective pressure to manipulate host eating behavior to increase their fitness, sometimes at the expense of host fitness. Microbes may do this through two potential strategies: (i) generating cravings for foods that they specialize on or foods that suppress their competitors, or (ii) inducing dysphoria until we eat foods that enhance their fitness. We review several potential mechanisms for microbial control over eating behavior including microbial influence on reward and satiety pathways, production of toxins that alter mood, changes to receptors including taste receptors, and hijacking of the vagus nerve, the neural axis between the gut and the brain. We also review the evidence for alternative explanations for cravings and unhealthy eating behavior. Because microbiota are easily manipulatable by prebiotics, probiotics, antibiotics, fecal transplants, and dietary changes, altering our microbiota offers a tractable approach to otherwise intractable problems of obesity and unhealthy eating.
