Toxic urban life style is killing our future 🙁

When you ask newly wedded couples to take care of these things, they often show their arrogance of foolishness and say: “I don’t care. My life, my style!”

🙁

For last decade, I suggest all married young couple to take care of life before it is conceptualized. From diet, sleep to utilities, married life demands critical care. But hardly anyone listen. 🙁

Everyone is in cloud 9 of modernity. 🙁

Expectant mothers in their first trimester should avoid certain cosmetics, cleaning agents and medicines, to protect the developing fetal brain from chemicals that can trigger autism, York U health researchers have found.

The list is long: cleaning solvents, pesticides, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs such as acetylsalicylic acid; misoprostol (a drug used for inducing labor); polychlorinated bisphenyls used as industrial lubricants; polybrominated diphenyl ethers found in wood and textiles; phthalates in PVC flooring, children’s toys, and cosmetics and lotions.

Use it or Lose it: Study Shows Stopping Exercise Decreases Brain Blood Flow

We all know that we can quickly lose cardiovascular endurance if we stop exercising for a few weeks, but what impact does the cessation of exercise have on our brains? New research led by University of Maryland School of Public Health researchers examined cerebral blood flow in healthy, physically fit older adults (ages 50-80 years) before and after a 10-day period during which they stopped all exercise. Using MRI brain imaging techniques, they found a significant decrease in blood flow to several brain regions, including the hippocampus, after they stopped their exercise routines.

“We know that the hippocampus plays an important role in learning and memory and is one of the first brain regions to shrink in people with Alzheimer’s disease,” says Dr. J. Carson Smith, associate professor of kinesiology and lead author of the study, which is published in Frontiers in Aging Neuroscience in August 2016. “In rodents, the hippocampus responds to exercise training by increasing the growth of new blood vessels and new neurons, and in older people, exercise can help protect the hippocampus from shrinking. So, it is significant that people who stopped exercising for only 10 days showed a decrease in blood flow to brain regions that are important for maintaining cognitive health.”

Hippocampal and Cerebral Blood Flow after Exercise Cessation in Master Athletes

While endurance exercise training improves cerebrovascular health and has neurotrophic effects within the hippocampus, the effects of stopping this exercise on the brain remain unclear. Our aim was to measure the effects of 10 days of detraining on resting cerebral blood flow (rCBF) in gray matter and the hippocampus in healthy and physically fit older adults. We hypothesized that rCBF would decrease in the hippocampus after a 10-day cessation of exercise training. Twelve master athletes, defined as older adults (age ≥ 50 years) with long-term endurance training histories (≥15 years), were recruited from local running clubs. After screening, eligible participants were asked to cease all training and vigorous physical activity for 10 consecutive days. Before and immediately after the exercise cessation period, rCBF was measured with perfusion-weighted MRI. A voxel-wise analysis was used in gray matter, and the hippocampus was selected a priori as a structurally defined region of interest (ROI), to detect rCBF changes over time. Resting CBF significantly decreased in eight gray matter brain regions. These regions included: (L) inferior temporal gyrus, fusiform gyrus, inferior parietal lobule, (R) cerebellar tonsil, lingual gyrus, precuneus, and bilateral cerebellum (FWE p < 0.05). Additionally, rCBF within the left and right hippocampus significantly decreased after 10 days of no exercise training. These findings suggest that the cerebrovascular system, including the regulation of resting hippocampal blood flow, is responsive to short-term decreases in exercise training among master athletes. Cessation of exercise training among physically fit individuals may provide a novel method to assess the effects of acute exercise and exercise training on brain function in older adults.

 

When you eat matters, not just what you eat

Life routine of Sanatani/ following Ayurveda, is highly specialized / individualized.

Timinings are fixed. Sleeping time, wake up time, meal time, pooja time, exercise time, break time – all fixed.

Not following means stress for cellular processes, organ processes and body processes. Chaos. Mleccha. 🙂

Observe youth and teens around. You can easily forecast their biological future. Chaos and rapid aging. Mleccha 🙂

“Every organ has a clock,” That means there are times that our livers, intestines, muscles, and other organs will work at peak efficiency and other times when they are–more or less–sleeping.

Those metabolic cycles are critical for processes from cholesterol breakdown to glucose production, and they should be primed to turn on when we eat and back off when we don’t, or vice versa.

“When we eat randomly, those genes aren’t on completely or off completely,” Panda said. The principle is just like it is with sleep and waking, he explained. If we don’t sleep well at night, we aren’t completely awake during the day, and we work less efficiently as a consequence.

First thing first:
Have fixed meal timings.
Have proper gaps between two meals.
Don’t eat 8-10 times a day as modern dietitians suggest.
Last meal and sleep : 4 hrs gap.
Exercise and meal : 45 mins gap.
Bath and meal : 30 mins gap.
No breakfast but full meal to begin the day.

Time-Restricted Feeding without Reducing Caloric Intake Prevents Metabolic Diseases in Mice Fed a High-Fat Diet

untitled

While diet-induced obesity has been exclusively attributed to increased caloric intake from fat, animals fed a high-fat diet (HFD) ad libitum (ad lib) eat frequently throughout day and night, disrupting the normal feeding cycle. To test whether obesity and metabolic diseases result from HFD or disruption of metabolic cycles, we subjected mice to either ad lib or time-restricted feeding (tRF) of a HFD for 8 hr per day. Mice under tRF consume equivalent calories from HFD as those with ad lib access yet are protected against obesity, hyperinsulinemia, hepatic steatosis, and inflammation and have improved motor coordination. The tRF regimen improved CREB, mTOR, and AMPK pathway function and oscillations of the circadian clock and their target genes’ expression. These changes in catabolic and anabolic pathways altered liver metabolome and improved nutrient utilization and energy expenditure. We demonstrate in mice that tRF regimen is a nonpharmacological strategy against obesity and associated diseases.

When you eat matters, not just what you eat

When it comes to weight gain, when you eat might be at least as important as what you eat. That’s the conclusion of a study reported in the Cell Press journal Cell Metabolism published early online on May 17th.

When mice on a high-fat diet are restricted to eating for eight hours per day, they eat just as much as those who can eat around the clock, yet they are protected against obesity and other metabolic ills, the new study shows. The discovery suggests that the health consequences of a poor diet might result in part from a mismatch between our body clocks and our eating schedules.

“Every organ has a clock,” said lead author of the study Satchidananda Panda of the Salk Institute for Biological Studies. That means there are times that our livers, intestines, muscles, and other organs will work at peak efficiency and other times when they are–more or less–sleeping.

Those metabolic cycles are critical for processes from cholesterol breakdown to glucose production, and they should be primed to turn on when we eat and back off when we don’t, or vice versa. When mice or people eat frequently throughout the day and night, it can throw off those normal metabolic cycles.

“When we eat randomly, those genes aren’t on completely or off completely,” Panda said. The principle is just like it is with sleep and waking, he explained. If we don’t sleep well at night, we aren’t completely awake during the day, and we work less efficiently as a consequence.

To find out whether restricted feeding alone–without a change in calorie intake–could prevent metabolic disease, Panda’s team fed mice either a standard or high-fat diet with one of two types of food access: ad lib feeding or restricted access.

The time-restricted mice on a high-fat diet were protected from the adverse effects of a high-fat diet and showed improvements in their metabolic and physiological rhythms. They gained less weight and suffered less liver damage. The mice also had lower levels of inflammation, among other benefits.

Panda says there is reason to think our eating patterns have changed in recent years, as many people have greater access to food and reasons to stay up into the night, even if just to watch TV. And when people are awake, they tend to snack.

The findings suggest that restricted meal times might be an underappreciated lifestyle change to help people keep off the pounds. At the very least, the new evidence suggests that this is a factor in the obesity epidemic that should be given more careful consideration.

“The focus has been on what people eat,” Panda said. “We don’t collect data on when people eat.”

Chemically grown Wheat, celiac and gluten intolerance

1

Reason why I now grow my own wheat and all other staple food.

10625108_364697323655182_1443860780535628365_n

The chart below is from a December 2013 study published in the Journal Interdisciplinary Toxicology examining glyphosate pathways to modern diseases such as celiac and gluten intolerance. [1][2]

Using Roundup on wheat crops throughout the entire growing season and even as a desiccant just prior to harvest may save the farmer money and increase profits, but it is devastating to the health of the consumer who ultimately consumes the glyphosate residue laden wheat kernels.

Pesticides and herbicides are making their ways to our dinner tables since 1980s. Just because Roundup doesn’t kill you immediately doesn’t make it nontoxic. In fact, the active ingredient in Roundup lethally disrupts the all important shikimate pathway found in beneficial gut microbes which is responsible for synthesis of critical amino acids. After 30 years, effectsare on surface. We are now in the dark zone. What follows from here is painful.

untitled

And this is not just wheat story. Same model is now replicated in other crops too. 🙁

Better we inspire our farmer brothers to get rid of such moron farming and bring mother (Gau mata) home back. They may experience reduction in profit but nothing better than disengaging from horrible karma of serving poison to all consumers 🙁.

It is not mere coincidence that Punjab is having highest number of cancer cases post green revolution euphoria. Karma. 🙁

Medical Examination : Progress or Regress?

0
untitled
There was a time when doctor can diagnose disease by mere observing patient’s eyes. No more extra inquiry.Then we upgraded our knowledge (!) and doctor had to observe patient’s Nadi to diagnose disease. Further, we progressed (??) further, doctor could not sense Nadi and so we invented stethoscope. Thereafter, our knowledge and skills increased manifold (or decreased??) and we started examining stool. Urine, blood etc. We also started taking X-Rays ( Which we later realized harmful for us).

Not only this. After observing all theses tastes, doctor has divine right to tell you that you have nothing to worry even if you are having severe pain! lol !

🙂 Specialized skills or limited knowledge? What kind of progress is this?

Like their counterparts, medical science of our age is in form of reductionism; cornering one gene causing disease, generalizing symptoms, and finding solutions in chemicals.

All organisms are spatial units in which the various parts interact to form an integrated whole. Our ability to breath depends on the interplay between our nervous system, muscles, skeleton, and lungs. The function of our lungs depends on the composition of the mucus that lines its walls. The composition of the mucus depends on the proteins that transport negatively charged chloride ions. Changes in just one element of this integrated system can have disastrous consequences. Least we talk about other layers of consciousness (We talked about it several times).

So, when you treat one symptom with same standard operating procedure, chances are that you will fail more often. If you succeed, you never can foresee future consequences of actions taken with limited worldview.

True science can treat patients on individual basis. My root cause of viral fever is different from yours. Mr. XYZ’s cancer is his exclusive life journey. We must not generalize, instead we should use general pathways to find exact root cause. Imagine, if root is in mental plane and you treat it at physical level. Diseases will resurface, again and again.

And to diagnose patient individually is not mere science. It is art. It is nature’s blessing. It is specialized skill. Without Sadhana, it is difficult to get blessed.

Mandatory Sports, Making of Citizen Warriors and National Security

If you don’t teach war-simulation games to toddlers, by not giving them toy-weapons, by keeping them away from games like Kabbadi, kho-kho, kusti, you help them in becoming weak and dependent citizens.

Instead of avoiding war-simulations altogether, teach them right usage! Impart correct value system!

Insects don’t have values, can’t protect self and get crushed first in giant and powerful wave.

Here is the interesting conversation from Arya Chanakya.

Chanakya’s way of creating a non-salaried army:

C = Chanakya S= Shivanath

S: A large army would inflate the defense budget. How can the state support it? To what extent we can increase the taxes before the public revolts?

C: We should build an army that doesn’t require salaries.

S: How is that possible? Who will work as a solider without salary? You are talking strange. The size of the army is dependent on defense budget.

C: Yes. The public will revolt if one has to raise a huge army for a war that comes once in life time. Public gets dissatisfied with the govt if the taxes go beyond the tolerable threshold. When the public develop apathy towards their rulers/govt, enemy doesn’t have to indulge in a war to win the kingdom. That is why I suggest we build an nonsalaried army.

When we develop patriotism in the citizens and offer them military training, they become nonsalaried army in the time of need. We also need to instill dharmic-fervor in them. Religious rituals are part of every individual’s life. So we need to develop patriotism intertwined with their religious/dharmic lifestyle. One cannot have patriotism unless one’s belief system is rooted in the lands they live in {KEY POINT}. That is why the need of the hour is to intertwine hindu dharma with these land. Land without religion is like a palace without foundation. Religion is the concept that uplifts animism into humanism and humanism into God-consciousness.

Bring together every citizen between ages 16 and 40 of every village into one place on a regular basis. Give them military training. Make it a sportive event. Instill discipline while training them in military skills. Make them sing patriotic songs. Identify suitable instructors in each village. This should not appear as an activity done for the state. It should appear as a sportive event for the benefit and entertainment of public. The king must establish indirect control on these village committees and encourage them as necessary.

Such activities instill unity and friendship among villagers. In times of need the villages will not only become self-protective but also offer trained army to king’s battles. This is an army without salary or state-budget. It has unlimited capacity (numbers).

In addition to this a salaried army will always be in the control of the king for unforeseen situations. The people’s army will act as an addendum to the regular army.
S: What a wonderful concept.

Rest In Peace : Silent Western Universalism

283247_192502150874701_681557732_n

RIP, in Indian social media, it is now common trend to use it when some famous personality dies. In fact, it is not mere trend but blind mimicry due to powerful influence of western universalism. It is nonsense adaptation. I say it is nonsense because “rest in peace” or its Latin original “requiescat in pace,” implies a belief in the concept that at death, the body is separated from the soul, and so the body is buried while the soul rests elsewhere until the final day of judgment when some “god” unites the body with the soul and then assigns some to “heaven” and others to “hell.”

I find the whole notion of heaven and hell, and its necessary correlate of a judgmental “god” who hands out eternal rewards and punishments, utterly insane and repulsive. It’s all very fine for people who profess the Abrahamic faiths to wish their co-religionists RIP but others would do well to respect people of different faiths and not wish them RIP.

For me, for billion Hindus, who slowly are adapting catholic culture (RIP is just one expression. Cutting cake on Birthday, eating junk pizza on all festivals etc are other such expressions showing Church influence on ordinary Hindu’s life style), Atma continues to descend on material plane until moksha is attained. So, RIP expression is nonsense.

It is shocking state where average Hindu read, write, consume non-dharmik traditions very easily. Of course, it doesn’t matter much as far as daily chores go. However, slowly vanishing dharmik imprints from Hindu mind, is dangerous.
Do not rest in peace, welcome back!

Interstellar, Mono-culture Farming and Gau Mata

0

untitled

Blight refers to a specific symptom affecting plants in response to infection by a pathogenic organism.

In movie interstellar, this was mentioned as crop epidemic. One by one, each crop was failing in future.

What is solution for this?

Being a farmer, I know the answer for it.

There is no pathogenic (Able to cause disease) organism on Earth. Each one of us doing our job. Some of these bacteria are given clean up job. When Mother Nature sees no sign of life, she arranges bacterias to do clean up job.

Since advent of last century, world has adopted monoculture farming (and nuclear family living) with heavy use of pesticides and chemical fertilizers. This has lead to depletion of vital elements in the soil. Crops suck whatsoever available nutrients but they are not sufficient to survive on them. Hence, from birth, plants are living almost dead life. And so blight the rapid decaying process. Premature decay.

Solution is multi-crop gau based farming. Her dung and urine has all 128 necessary elements (In picture, you see 33 elemental devata(s) shown in her body). Along with it, they are full of Prana shakti ( This is beyong modern science to understand 🙂). But for her to provide us such precious wealth, we need forests for her to graze.

When plants are full of prana and nutrients, there will be no trace of blight.

A common sense solution without mambo jumbo of Popular science 😉 🙂

Afforestation + Protection of Bos Indicus + diversity or polucrops -> Solution for world food crisis

Water is disappearing, do we care?

Many organisms invaded and occupied terrestrial and aerial niches, but none gained true independence from water.
Water connects the dots.
Water is life line.
Water is God!

Water is truly a crucial determinant of the fitness of the environment. In a very real sense, organisms are aqueous systems in a watery world.
And we thought, its coffee(or cola or other beverages) that makes our day! lol !
Do you enjoy drinking water? Or your senses are weakened enough and need special ingredients coffee, tea and cola!

True! Need of the hour! Where is purest water resource?? One more area where focus should shift soon, immediately! Pure do cure!

Imagine the world with no ground water. Look at the map. It is already happening. No water, no life.

Our modern life is designed to create isolated silos. We are disconnected from our basic necessity sources. The technology-progress arrogance is so high that we really don’t care about being part of the natural cycle.

In luxury bath, you will waste plenty of water because for you, supply is unlimited!

I see new generation apartments and homes using guzzling amount of water from bore-well with absolutely no activity related to water re-charge.

And when we talk to them, selfish scums will reply: “Who cares? We pay for the water bill. We must get our share! You go to hell!”

Teach your kids importance of natural resources. Don’t raise them in urban silos. Expose them to harsh realities of this planet.

May be, we (our kids) will need yet another Bhagirath (भागीरथ – extreme) efforts to welcome Maa Ganga again. Our generation is foolish enough to waste water.


Water is disappearing. Use it moderately. Train kids to use water frugally.

In many parts of the world, in particular in the dry, mid-latitudes, far more water is used than is available on an annual, renewable basis. Precipitation, snowmelt, and streamflow are no longer enough to supply the multiple, competing demands for society’s water needs. Because the gap between supply and demand is routinely bridged with non-renewable groundwater, even more so during drought, groundwater supplies in some major aquifers will be depleted in a matter of decades. The myth of limitless water and the free-for-all mentality that has pervaded groundwater use must now come to an end.

Major Fallacy : Outsourcing Svadharma

0

untitled

You cannot plant trees? Pay Green tax.
You cannot clean the street? Pay Clean cess.
You cannot participate in societal education? Pay education cess.
Pay water tax and use unlimited ground water!

Once you equate your critical Karma towards society and mother nature with money, you reduce its importance to zero.

“Everything can be taken care by money” is Ravan’s Lanka attitude. Ponzi schemes to hide societal inability to do duties, laziness and apathy. More opportunities for corruption.

Money cannot replace your efforts. Mercenary (Paid) soldiers may win battles but they always fail in long term wars.

Cess, Tax, Fine – they can be supporting karma but they cannot replace your necessary duties.
