नाडीज्ञानतरंगिणी, त्रिदोष एवं काल

0

नाडीज्ञानतरंगिणी is an ancient text on diagnosis of sick humans. One of the chapter talks about different time of universal cycles when Pitta, Kapha and Vayu dominates.

Here is the table based on the book.
NadiWhen we realize dominance of dosha during time of the day or season of the year, we definitely get important hints about living life.

Take for example: We are in the start of the Kaliyuga. Pitta will be predominant. Inflammation will kill most of us. Fire worship helps in establishing synergy with fire element.

First Sandhya of the day is done in standing position when the Vayu is predominant.

Fertilizers consume Prana and kills Microbes

Post world war-2, there was question of managing unused raw material planned for bombs. How to use it? Typical profit devil. Sell it to third world slave countries as fertilizers! Make them believe that their land can’t produce enough to feed the population and then on based on this false narrative, sell them fertilizers! And since it became profitable model, more and more money was invested in wrong direction of science.

We don’t consider (We as in Sanatana dharma followers, popularly known as Hindus) mother earth dead or mere a component in a cycle. She is alive. She breathes. She has prana. Her prana is something that decides specific part’s fertility. It is job of her son to maintain the prana of her body. We used to do it with the help of cow-dung and urine. Enough. We mastered the ecology. Just one weak point : Gullible mass and selfish leaders. We lost to market forces and ruined out golden land! 🙁

“When we change the nutrient environment that plants are in, we are fundamentally altering the plant-microbiome interaction and also, importantly, the microbiome-mediated protection of natural plant/microbe interactions,” said senior author Britt Koskella, a UC Berkeley assistant professor of integrative biology.

The fertilizer effect was not the only surprise from the study, Koskella said. She and co-author Maureen Berg, a graduate student, were investigating how the density of the microbial community on the leaves affected the plants’ resistance to disease and discovered that a lower dose of beneficial microbes sprayed on the leaves was often more effective in protecting the plants from infection than higher doses. Berg sprayed leaves with an artificial microbial community composed of 12 species of bacteria taken from the natural microbiome of healthy tomatoes.

“We found that the most protective community was the most dilute, the least concentrated, the lowest dose,” she said. “This was completely nonintuitive. A medium dose gave medium protection and the highest dose was the least protective.”

“The fact that we saw this lower-dose/higher-protection effect suggests it is not as simple as just throwing on more microbes,” Koskella said. “There is a lot of work to be done understanding how to apply a plant probiotic.”

She and Berg will report their findings in the Aug. 6 print edition of the journal Current Biology; the article will be posted online July 26.

Koskella focuses on plants’ above-ground microbiomes, or the phyllosphere, a poorly understood community compared to the well-studied below-ground microbiome associated with plant roots, the rhizosphere. Researchers are finding unsuspected activity within phyllosphere microbes, including that some of the bacteria fix nitrogen from the air like root-associated bacteria. Many studies have demonstrated that microbial communities in the roots can promote plants’ nutrient uptake, growth and resistance to disease, and Koskella is investigating whether this also holds true for the above-ground microbiome.

Cholesterol is found in every cell of your body. It is especially abundant in the membranes of these cells, where it helps maintain the integrity of these membranes, and plays a role in facilitating cell signaling– meaning the ability of your cells to communicate with each other so you function as a human, rather than a pile of cells.

 

Most Dangerous Ads : By children, for children

Flipkart ads

Any Ad that exploit children is sick and eunuch effort to sell products. TATA Sky’s new Ad series is such example. It is instigating children against parents (मम्मी कहतीहै टीवी मत देखो…see how fool my mom is)

What TV can teach, you can easily demonstrate. Benefit of you replacing TV is: You interact with child for more time. More time your spend with your kid, better brain growth happens. This is biological truth. If you do not agree with this, all the best 🙂.

In some homes, Kids love TV more than spending time with parents. I can sense the reason behind it: Parents are disinterested spending time with kids and are more interested in their own entertainment. Before this repeat with your family, take care. If you see loss of affection for you from kids, you have difficult old age 🙂 😉. And you deserve difficult old age! 😛

 

Parenting Ignorance : Fruits and Fruit Juice

juice

Nothing worse than buying food labelled as ‘Healthy food’ by continuous bombardment of advertisements  during prime TV time. It is parental laziness who present processed fruit juice to kids as healthy food.

You are not helping your child bus killing his/her future! Read what American Association of pediatrics suggest about fruit juice intake in kids.

We have warned readers 5 years back about this habit:

https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10152818388784762&set=a.476649199761.254188.501739761&type=3&permPage=1

Our habits reflects our collective intelligences as a society, as a family and as an individual.

Since cancer-colas are continuously losing their popularity in last decade, new trend is emerging in our society and that is to drink juice. In juice, more artificial juice than a natural one.

Good that youth is ignoring colas but it is not yet best choice as alternative.

What do we lose when you drink juice and not eat fruits?

Fiber. The high fiber content of a whole orange helps the body properly process the high fructose content of the juice. The fiber actually blocks some of the sugar from being absorbed, which makes the orange more nutritious for the amount of calories it contains. The fiber also makes a whole orange much more filling than the juice (it’s far easier to consume several glasses of high sugar orange juice than several whole oranges). If you eat a whole orange you’ll also be more satisfied and less hungry for calorie-dense, nutritionally-deficient food later on.

In addition to the benefits of the extra fiber in the pulp, a whole orange contains numerous health promoting micro-nutrients that aren’t found in the juice alone. One of the most researched is a flavanoid called hesperidin, which is concentrated in the pulp and inside of the peel. Hesperidin shows promise as an anti-inflammatory, in lowering blood pressure, and in promoting healthy cholesterol. One animal study also found that a diet rich in orange pulp increased bone density!

Another mindless habit?

Fruits are already having less nutrients due to chemical farming, chemical processing. Why do you want to make them more deprived of benefits by drinking juice?

Artificial juice – NEVER EVER. Natural Juice – only to avoid dehydration during summers.

Always prefer fruits over juice.

We also wrote extra sugar havoc :

Fruit juices and ice creams during all illnesses – this is not always desired.

This may increase chances of infections.

Hint: High intake sugar vs weak digestive fire

No genuine ayurvedic doctor prescribes it. Superficial allopathy doctors do. And self-proclaimed doctor relatives of patient do it always as for them, fruits mean vitamin C 😉 And ice-cream is medicine for acidity

Fruit Juice in Infants, Children, and Adolescents: Current Recommendations

Historically, fruit juice was recommended by pediatricians as a source of vitamin C and as an extra source of water for healthy infants and young children as their diets expanded to include solid foods with higher renal solute load. It was also sometimes recommended for children with constipation. Fruit juice is marketed as a healthy, natural source of vitamins and, in some instances, calcium. Because juice tastes good, children readily accept it. Although juice consumption has some benefits, it also has potential detrimental effects. High sugar content in juice contributes to increased calorie consumption and the risk of dental caries. In addition, the lack of protein and fiber in juice can predispose to inappropriate weight gain (too much or too little). Pediatricians need to be knowledgeable about juice to inform parents and patients on its appropriate uses.

Conclusions

  1. Fruit juice offers no nutritional benefits for infants younger than 1 year.

  2. Fruit juice offers no nutritional benefits over whole fruit for infants and children and has no essential role in healthy, balanced diets of children.

  3. One hundred percent fresh or reconstituted fruit juice can be a healthy part of the diet of children older than 1 year when consumed as part of a well-balanced diet. Fruit drinks, however, are not nutritionally equivalent to fruit juice.

  4. Juice is not appropriate in the treatment of dehydration or the management of diarrhea.

  5. Excessive juice consumption may be associated with malnutrition (overnutrition and undernutrition).

  6. Excessive juice consumption is associated with diarrhea, flatulence, abdominal distention, and tooth decay.

  7. Unpasteurized juice products may contain pathogens that can cause serious illnesses and should be given to children cautiously, if at all.

  8. A variety of fruit juices, provided in appropriate amounts for a child’s age, are not likely to cause any significant clinical symptoms.

  9. Calcium-fortified juices provide a bioavailable source of calcium and often vitamin D but lack other nutrients present in human milk, infant formula, or cow milk.

Guru

In decentralized society, Education is Teacher-Guru centered. Guru and his institution decides whether you are in or not. You need to prove yourself.

In centralized society, it is govt controlled. If you fail the test or someone else have access to system by power/money influence, you are doomed! Or you have reservation.

I wish, we as a society move away from slave-master based centralized society. May Guru bless us all!

Remember, information networks cannot replace real Guru. Never! 🙂 If that is your illusion, break it.

 Then who is Guru?

Who is Guru?

वाचस्पति,वसोस्पति,असो:पति. – अथर्ववेद

पति – Expert/Protector

Expert in वाक – Communication expert
Expert in वसो – Material science expert
expert in असो – प्राण विषय – Life science expert

*Communication doesn’t mean gross conversations but expert in all sort of communications, including Economics & wealth management.
==============================
Majority teachers in our society will fail this test. Almost all religious Gurus will also fail. If there are no genuine Gurus, there is no genuine education, and such society is nothing but barbaric representation of humanity.

Worried about Food Security?Ditch Meat and Organized Dairy intake!

MeatDairy

Young generation is waking up about environmental disasters around. But we must realize that, there won’t be much impact until we alter our habits. We must ditch our mimicry of west and their consumerism attitude. Do it and see the impact! Go local!

Get rid of selfishness injected in your mind by your education and media! you don’t live for self! Sole purpose of life is to live for others!

When I said ditch dairy, I don’t mean ditching Gau-seva! We deserve milk only in raw form when we are able to connect self with local gau-shala, visit it at least weakly, participate in sustaining it! Dairy kills this sacredness and consume environment heavily!

We can feed the world if we change our ways

If society continues on a ‘business-as-usual’ dietary trajectory, a 119% increase in edible crops grown will be required by 2050.

Current crop yields could provide nutritious food for the projected 2050 global population, but only if we make radical changes to our dietary choices, a new study shows.

Researchers from Lancaster University have analysed global and regional food supplies to reveal the flows of calories, protein and vital micro-nutrients from production through to human consumption, in a study published in Elementa, Science of the Anthropocene.

Combining data from the UN Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) with food nutrient data, and information on animal grazing and on human nutritional need, they explore whether we could feed a growing population with the food we already produce.

They conclude that, even without improvements in crop yield, current crop production is sufficient to provide enough healthy food for the predicted 9.7 billion world population in 2050, although this will require radical shifts in behaviour.

Most importantly they say there need to be fundamental changes to human diets, replacing most meat and dairy with plant-based alternatives, and a greater willingness to eat crops such as maize which are currently fed to animals.

“Our analysis finds no nutritional case for feeding human-edible crops to animals, which reduces calorie and protein supplies. If society continues on a ‘business-as-usual’ dietary trajectory, a 119% increase in edible crops grown will be required by 2050”, said Professor Nick Hewitt, of the Lancaster Environment Centre.

The researchers acknowledge that meat and dairy, particularly that are produced from grass, pasture and cereal crop residues, may be important to people who do not have access to diverse food types and who cannot access dietary supplements.

“However”, they conclude, “Overall, industrialised meat and dairy production, which currently relies on feeding 34% of human-edible crop calories to animals globally, is highly inefficient in terms of the provision of human nutrition.”

Reducing waste and excess consumption is also important, but quantitively less significant, the study shows. There is also a need for very significant changes to the socio-economic conditions of many people, to ensure that everyone gets access to a healthy, balanced diet.

“As well as following the flow of all human-edible and non-human-edible food calories, we track protein, vitamin A, iron and zinc, because shortages of these have been identified as the major causes of ‘hidden hunger’,” Professor Hewitt explained.

The analysis shows little scope for biofuel production, according to Professor Mike Berners-Lee, of the University’s Institute for Social Futures, and director of Small World Consulting, which is based within the Lancaster Environment Centre.

He said: “Currently, 16% of crops available for eating are diverted to non-food uses, mainly biofuel. Increasing market pressures for biofuels could further stress the global food system.”

The research does not take account of crop yield changes such as those that may result from new technologies, land use or demographic changes, farming practices or climate change, but simply keeps crop yields at 2013 levels.

Professor Berners-Lee added: “There is currently widespread emphasis on increasing crop yields and reducing waste as the main mechanisms for ensuring global food security. But the potential nutritional benefits of increased crop yields would be entirely lost if the additional crop production was diverted to biofuels and largely lost if diverted to animals.

“Achieving global food security while reducing negative environmental impacts is one of the greatest challenges facing humanity.”

Why not Gym? Why more time outdoor? Brain acts differently indoor vs outdoor

Gym

Art of planning and constructing building is known as Vastu in Bharat. We excelled it. We took care of subtlest aspect of living. We stressed more focus on Prana movements within building and its exchange with body since it is prana’s reflection that will manifest body in different states, health or sickness.

Alas! We don’t count it! All buildings are built with purpose. If we build room, each room has purpose. Certain rooms are built for human habitat while others are built to store either grains or weapons.

We no more follow it. We build toilet next to bedroom and store grains in kitchen only! We exercise in gym! व्यायाम is such activity which demands open sky or at least semi-open space. Ground or Akhada. It can never be done in closed doors. Never in AC!

Exercise demands more and more prana exchange! (Prana is not oxygen!). Too many people doing it closed door, is not good. Besides, during such heavy prana exchange, you not only exchange prana with indoor environment but also with fellow exercise doers! Over the period of time, dominant prana will make all normalize. Zombies. There will be so much of thought pollution and दूषित प्राण signatures.

  • Now our professions force us indoor for 8+ hours daily! Imagine how it alters the way our brain processes information. Compare with ancient professions. Even doctors used to practice in semi-open premises. Never closed doors! School in forest!
  • Compare kid watching TV, playing only indoor vs kid playing on ground
  • Senior citizens living indoors with a fear of infection or slip while senior citizens always on foot, performing social duties outdoors!

This is your brain. This is your brain outdoors.

Neuroscientists find differences in brain activity depending whether people are outdoors or in a lab.

The brain acts much differently when we’re outdoors compared to when we’re inside the lab, a new study has found.

“It happens when we’re doing normal, everyday activities, like riding a bike,” explained Kyle Mathewson, a neuroscientist in UAlberta’s Department of Psychology.

Mathewson and his research team put EEG equipment into backpacks and had subjects perform a standard neuroscience task while riding a bike outside. The task involved identifying changes in an otherwise consistent set of stimuli, such as a higher pitch in a series of beep sounds. They had previously performed the same experiment on stationary bikes inside their lab but in the but in the new study, the scientists were able to record laboratory quality measurements of brain activity outdoors, using portable equipment.

“Something about being outdoors changes brain activity,” said Joanna Scanlon, graduate student and lead author on the study. “In addition to dividing attention between the task and riding a bike, we noticed that brain activity associated with sensing and perceiving information was different when outdoors, which may indicate that the brain is compensating for environmental distractions.”

The study showed that our brains process stimuli, like sounds and sights, differently when we perform the same task outdoors compared to inside a lab.

“If we can understand how and what humans are paying attention to in the real world, we can learn more about how our minds work,” said Scanlon. “We can use that information to make places more safe, like roadways.”

“If we want to apply these findings to solve issues in our society, we need to ensure that we understand how the brain works out in the world where humans actually live, work, and play,” said Mathewson, who added that almost everything we know about the human brain is learned from studies in very tightly controlled environments.

Woven Into Visuals : Catch22 of Agri Chemicals, Fruits and Vegetables

Maximum pesticides are used to grow fruits and vegetables 😉 Catch 22.

Why Catch22?

catch-22 is a paradoxical situation from which an individual cannot escape because of contradictory rules.

Since fruits and vegetables are  prescribed by doctors as antioxidants but you cannot have it because of loaded with chemicals! Catch-22!

pest1

Agro chemicals have tendency to act as magnet of minerals. Esp. Glyphosate . They suck minerals from soil and food. Bind and suck metals.

Reason why your food is now critical poor in minerals. Even supplements won’t work if you are eating pesticides loaded food.

Glufosinate is as dangerous as glyphosate for our biology – not just because of its toxicity, or because of whatever else they put into the herbicide package, but also because glufosinate, like glyphosate, is an analog of (mimic of) one of the canonical twenty amino acids that are the basic building blocks of all life, from bacteria onwards to humans. Glufosinate is an analog of glutamic acid, while glyphosate is analog of glycine. Both Glycine and glutamic acids are two out of twenty amino acids that all life is made of.

Criminal free society or Crime free society?

crimefree

In India, come election season and media will find lawlessness everywhere! Are weak laws responsible for rising crimes in society? Will we be secure when laws are amended and made like communist laws of China or Shariya laws of middle eastern countries?

1) Criminal free society 2) Crime free society

What do we want? First or second?

Strict laws will eliminate criminals but cannot eliminate crimes.
Our lifestyle can eliminate crimes.

Ideal society seek solutions in self and not man-made laws.

There is no surprise that our society seek solution for sexual crimes in strict laws. Some of them compare our laws with other countries like Arabs and demand strict laws.

Are laws sole and full proof solution?
No.

Let me share one scenario to understand this better:

There is a lake in the village. Fisherman community depends upon lake for the livelihood. Lake and her fish communities play critical role in this village economy.

Suddenly, there was an outbreak of disease and one by one fishes were
dying.

At this moment, Govt fishery dept can do two things

1) Give medicine to fishes
2) Investigate problems in environment which causes such outbreak

Task 2 is critical than saving already dying fishes. This does not mean task 1 is not needed at all. But task 2 is more critical to avoid future outbreaks.

Moral of the story is: It is environment that plays a role of breeding ground for healthy or unhealthy society, be it fishes or humans.

Strict laws are like task 1 in the story. US has best laws and judiciary but highest rape crimes happen in US. Do you know why? They don’t care about task 2. Do we know how these perverted humans are breeding?

Well, it is our perverted entertainment indulgence. But since it is our daily dosage of peace, we want to play blind and only focus on task 1 (Give medicines to fishes i.e. strict laws).

Ideal society takes care of their environment. We do not so we deserve crimes. We are right now shun the disease society. We should be prevent the disease society 🙁. Medicines cannot prevent physiological disease. Laws cannot prevent societal disease. We must work on environment to stop further outbreak.
