Woven Into Visuals : Gurukul, Gau and Immunity

For all friends who often make fun of their roots, especially due to their inherent bias for political party, they oppose cow-based economy too!

I have discussed this point in past that cow-milk can be a great immunity booster (provided it is is raw milk procured from ethical gau shala who takes care of cow as mother!) Not only that, when you child is exposed to cow herd, while they are grazing, he or she is exposed to billions of benign bio-markers, building immunity strong in childhood!

Some quotes based on it:

Modern Education is trojan horse.

Child Development in City invites future mental disorders

children

I have hypothesis or say interpretation about Sita’s Agni Pariksha followed by transfer to Vashishtha Rishi’s ashram. To me, this was well-planned decision. Sita living in hermitage, in forest, giving birth to Luv and Kush, is perfect plan to me.

Child development in forest, with all sort of mother nature’s immune and intellect boosters.

Similarly, birth of Shri Krishna was in highly urbanized Mathura and grooming of Avtar is not possible in urban place. So? Arrangements were made so that Krishna can be groomed in natural environment, in vicinity of cows. Nanda’s home was perfect for it.

Key takeaways
  • Adult men who had grown up in the country with pets had a healthier immune response to stress than those who grew up pet-free in the city, a new study shows.
  • The study is the first in humans to suggest the ‘hygiene hypothesis’ applies to mental health too.
  • Exposure to beneficial microorganisms in childhood may lead to better mental health in adulthood.

No ancient Gurukul(s) were established in cities. All of them in jungle. We are known as अरण्य संस्कृति. I have written in past that Gau-shala was inseparable part of gurukul institution. All students had primary responsibility to offer seva at Gurukul’s gau shala.

In short, from birth to end of Brahmcharya (Age 0 to age 25), it was essential for child to live in natural forest like environment with constant touch with animals and trees.

Now, read this research. They talk about pets. Dogs and cats. But cats and dogs have their own issues (and diseases). The perfect synergy is with cows.

How growing up with pets, dust may boost mental health

Children raised in a rural environment, surrounded by animals and bacteria-laden dust, grow up to have more stress-resilient immune systems and might be at lower risk of mental illness than pet-free city dwellers, according to new research published this week in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS).

The study, co-authored by researchers from the University of Ulm in Germany and CU Boulder, adds to mounting evidence supporting the “hygiene hypothesis,” which posits that overly sterile environments can breed health problems.

Key takeaways
  • Adult men who had grown up in the country with pets had a healthier immune response to stress than those who grew up pet-free in the city, a new study shows.
  • The study is the first in humans to suggest the ‘hygiene hypothesis’ applies to mental health too.
  • Exposure to beneficial microorganisms in childhood may lead to better mental health in adulthood.

The research also suggests that raising kids around pets might be good for mental health—for reasons people might not expect.
