Your Health at your fingertips

The readership has crossed 400 mark


Mudras means holding your fingers in different configurations. They are generally combined with Pranayama, Padmasana etc. They are also displayed during Indian classical dances such as Bhatanatyam. Some people say they actuate some hyper sensitive nerve points in the palm of our hand, that stimulates our brain and has an effect on various organs and metabolisms of the body. It is similar to accupressure. It is in line with the theory proposed by some people that our palm represents the entire body, from head to toes and you can feel or heal the body from your palm.
It is not scientific in the modern way of thinking, but a lot of people have faith in such therapies.

 Fingers Magic

Practice these Mudras atleast 3 to 5 Min every day for lifetime Diseases free.
Note: For Illustration, we put both hands closer, but in practice no need to put your hands closer. They can be separately placed.

The surprising benefits of lemon!


This article is heavily loaded against chemotherapy and drug industry. Hence, its authenticity is suspect. I certainly do bot agree with its criticism about the existing practices.

However, lemon is a good citrus fruit and helps our body in many ways, it may help in preventing Cancer also, in a smaller way.

Read carefully & you be the judge.
Lemon (Citrus) is a miraculous product to kill cancer cells. It is 10,000 times stronger than chemotherapy.

Why do we not know about that? Because there are laboratories interested in making a synthetic version that will bring them huge profits. You can now help a friend in need by letting him/her know that lemon juice is beneficial in preventing the disease. Its taste is pleasant and it does not produce the horrific effects of chemotherapy. How many people will die while this closely guarded secret is kept, so as not to jeopardize the beneficial multimillionaires large corporations?

As you know, the lemon tree is known for its varieties of lemons and limes. You can eat the fruit in different ways: you can eat the pulp, juice press, prepare drinks, sorbets, pastries, etc... It is credited with many virtues, but the most interesting is the effect it produces on cysts and tumors. This plant is a proven remedy against cancers of all types. Some say it is very useful in all variants of cancer. It is considered also as an anti microbial spectrum against bacterial infections and fungi, effective against internal parasites and worms, it regulates blood pressure which is too high and an antidepressant, combats stress and nervous disorders.

The source of this information is fascinating: it comes from one of the largest drug manufacturers in the world, says that after more than 20 laboratory tests since 1970, the extracts revealed that: It destroys the malignant cells in 12 cancers, including colon, breast, prostate, lung and pancreas ... The compounds of this tree showed 10,000 times better than the product Adriamycin, a drug normally used chemotherapeutic in the world, slowing the growth of cancer cells. And what is even more astonishing: this type of therapy with lemon extract only destroys malignant cancer cells and it does not affect healthy cells.

Eat onions .... but freshly cut


Even if the the following tale is true, I am not sure whether cut onions will attract all the germs and bacteria from air ( and also from the body of the patient who is already infected!), absrb them and purify the air. On the other hand, we observe that the cut onion spreads its odour in the air. However, I agree that the cut onions, potatoes and also tomatoes, cucumbers etc are prone to get infected and carry the bacteria in to your stomach. I generally avoid eating them unless they are freshly cut. just before serving.
So eat onions, but freshly cut or after boiling or frying them. You may keep the cut onions for some time (to attract bacteria, in the same way as fly catchers) but distroy them.


In 1919 when the flu killed 40 million people, there was a Doctor who visited many farmers to see if he could help them combat the flu. Many of the farmers and their family had contracted it, and many died.

The doctor came upon one farmer, and to his surprise, everyone in the household was very healthy. When the doctor asked what the farmer was doing that was different, the wife replied that she had placed an unpeeled onion in a dish in the rooms of the home (probably only two rooms back then). The doctor couldn't believe it and asked if he could have one of the onions and place it under the microscope. She gave him one, and when he did this, he did find the flu virus in the onion. It obviously absorbed the bacteria, therefore, keeping the family healthy.

Now, I heard this story from my hairdresser in AZ. She said that several years ago many of her employees were coming down with the flu and so were many of her customers. The next year she placed several bowls with onions around in her shop. To her surprise, none of her staff got sick. It must work... (And no, she is not in the onion business.)

The moral of the story is, buy some onions and place them in bowls around your home. If you work at a desk, place one or two in your office or under your desk or even on top somewhere. Try it and see what happens. We did it last year, and we never got the flu.

If this helps you and your loved ones from getting sick, all the better. If you do get the flu, it just might be a mild case...Whatever, what have you to lose? Just a few bucks on onions!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Now there is a P.S. To this, for I sent it to a friend in Oregon who regularly contributes material to me on health issues. She replied with this most interesting experience about onions:

Thanks for the reminder. I don't know about the farmer's story...but I do know that I contracted pneumonia, and needless to say I was very ill...I came across an article that said to cut both ends off an onion. Put one end on a fork, and then place the forked end into an empty jar...placing the jar next to the sick patient at night. It said the onion would be black in the morning from the germs. Sure enough, it happened just like that...the onion was a mess, and I began to feel better.

Another thing I read in the article was that onions and garlic placed around the room saved many from the black plague years ago. They have powerful antibacterial, antiseptic properties.

This is the other note:

I have used an onion which has been left in the fridge. Sometimes I don't use a whole one at one time, so I save the other half for later. Now with this info, I have changed my mind. I will buy smaller onions in the future. I had the wonderful privilege of touring Mullins Food Products, makers of mayonnaise. Mullins is huge, and is owned by 11 brothers and sisters in the Mullins family. My friend, Jeanne, is the CEO.

Questions about food poisoning came up, and I wanted to share what I learned from a chemist.

The guy who gave us our tour is named Ed. He's one of the brothers. Ed is a chemistry expert and is involved in developing most of the sauce formula. He's even developed sauce formula for McDonald's.

Keep in mind that Ed is a food chemistry whiz. During the tour, someone asked if we really needed to worry about mayonnaise. People are always worried that mayonnaise will spoil. Ed's answer will surprise you. Ed said that all commercially-made Mayo is completely safe.

"It doesn't even have to be refrigerated. No harm in refrigerating it, but it's not really necessary." He explained that the pH in mayonnaise is set at a point that bacteria could not survive in that environment. He then talked about the quintessential picnic, with the bowl of potato salad sitting on the table and how everyone blames the mayonnaise when someone gets sick.

Ed says that when food poisoning is reported, the first thing the officials look for is when the 'victim' last ate ONIONS and where those onions came from (in the potato salad?). Ed says it's not the mayonnaise (as long as it's not homemade Mayo) that spoils in the outdoors. It's probably the onions, and if not the onions, it's the POTATOES.

He explained, onions are a huge magnet for bacteria, especially uncooked onions. You should never plan to keep a portion of a sliced onion. He says it's not even safe if you put it in a zip-lock bag and put it in your refrigerator.

It's already contaminated enough just by being cut open and out for a bit, that it can be a danger to you (and doubly watch out for those onions you put in your hotdogs at the baseball park!)

Ed says if you take the leftover onion and cook it like crazy you'll probably be okay, but if you slice that leftover onion and put it on your sandwich, you're asking for trouble. Both the onions and the moist potato in a potato salad will attract and grow bacteria faster than any commercial mayonnaise will even begin to break down.

So, how's that for news? Take it for what you will. I (the author) am going to be very careful about my onions from now on. For some reason, I see a lot of credibility coming from a chemist and a company that produces millions of pounds of mayonnaise every year.
Also, dogs should never eat onions. Their stomachs cannot metabolize onions.

Please remember it is dangerous to cut onions and try to use it to cook the next day. I t becomes highly poisonous for even a single night and creates toxic bacteria which may cause adverse stomach infections because of excess bile secretions and even food poisoning.

Cancer and Plastic


This e mail forward  is five years old and is still circulating.  There are some reports saying all what is written below is not correct, it is probably hoax, but some points may be correct.  So, I am passing on the confusion in my mind to the readers. I have no idea whether there is a John Hopkins Hospital for Cancer and whether they publish any updates. So the confusion starts from the beginning.  I am also skeptical about the propaganda blitz against use of plastics. In my opinion, it is highly exaggerated, even if it contains an element of truth. Still the following article is worth reading once.

Disclaimer : All the postings of mine in this Blog are only my  collection. MY ALL EFFORT IS COPY PASTE ONLY. Most of them are received in my email inbox, Some are downloaded from internet posted by some one else. I am just saving some time of readers to get them readily available. So none of these are my own creation. I believe I am not violating any copy rights law or taking any illegal action am not supposed to do.If anything is objectionable, please notify so that they can be removed.


Cancer Update (supposed to be from)  John Hopkins  -

Every person has cancer cells in the body. These cancer cells do not show up in the standard tests until they have multiplied to a few billion. When doctors tell cancer patients that there are no more cancer cells in their bodies after treatment, it just means the tests are unable to detect the cancer cells because they have not reached the detectable size.

Cancer cells occur between 6 to more than 10 times in a person's lifetime.
When the person's immune system is strong the cancer cells will be destroyed and prevented from multiplying and forming tumors.
When a person has cancer it indicates the person has multiple nutritional deficiencies. These could be due to genetic, environmental, food, and lifestyle factors.
To overcome the multiple nutritional deficiencies, changing diet and including supplements will strengthen the immune system.
Chemotherapy involves poisoning the rapidly-growing cancer cells and also destroys rapidly-growing healthy cells in the bone marrow, gastrointestinal tract, and can cause organ damage, like liver, kidneys, heart, lungs, etc.
Radiation while destroying cancer cells also burns, scars and damages healthy cells, tissues and organs.
Initial treatment with chemotherapy and radiation will often reduce tumor size. However, prolonged use of chemotherapy and radiation do not result in more tumor destruction.
When the body has too much toxic burden from chemotherapy and radiation the immune system is either compromised or destroyed, hence the person can succumb to various kinds of infections and complications.
Chemotherapy and radiation can cause cancer cells to mutate and become resistant and difficult to destroy. Surgery can also cause cancer cells to spread to other sites.
An effective way to battle cancer is to starve the cancer cells by not feeding it with the foods it needs to multiply.

Sugar is a cancer-feeder.  By cutting off sugar it cuts off one important food supply to the cancer cells. Sugar substitutes like NutraSweet, Equal, Spoonful, etc are made with Aspartame and it is harmful. A better natural substitute would be Manuka honey or molasses but only in very small amounts.
Table salt has a chemical added to make it white in color, try sea salt instead; and, a better alternative is 'Bragg's Aminos'.
Milk causes the body to produce mucus, especially in the gastrointestinal tract. Cancer feeds on mucus. By cutting off milk and substituting with unsweetened soy milk cancer cells are being starved.
Cancer cells thrive in an acid environment.
A meat-based diet is acidic and it is best to eat fish and a little chicken rather than beef or pork. Meat also contains livestock antibiotics, growth hormones, and parasites; and, all are  especially harmful to people with cancer.
A diet made of 80% fresh vegetables and juice, whole grains, seeds, nuts and a little fruits help put the body into an alkaline environment. About 20% can be from cooked food including beans. Fresh vegetable juices provide live enzymes that are easily absorbed and reach down to cellular levels within 15 minutes to nourish and enhance growth of healthy cells.. To obtain live enzymes for building healthy cells try and drink fresh vegetable juice (most vegetables including bean sprouts) and eat some raw vegetables 2 or 3 times a day.  Enzymes are destroyed at 104 degrees F (40 degrees C).

AVOID coffee, tea, and chocolate, which have high caffeine.  Green tea is a better alternative and has cancer-fighting properties.
WATER - best to drink purified or filtered water to avoid known toxins and heavy metals in tap water.  Distilled water is acidic so avoid it altogether.
MEAT - protein is difficult to digest and requires a lot of digestive enzymes.  Undigested meat remaining in the intestines become putrefied and leads to more toxic buildup.  Cancer cell walls have a tough protein covering.  By refraining from or eating less meat it frees more enzymes to attack the protein walls of cancer cells and allows the body's killer cells to destroy the cancer cells.
Some supplements build up the immune system (IP6, Flor-essence, Essiac, antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, EFA's, etc.) to enable the body's own killer cells to destroy cancer cells. Other supplements like vitamin E are known to cause apoptosis, or programmed cell death, the body's normal method of disposing of damaged, unwanted, or unneeded cells.

Cancer is a disease of the MIND, BODY, and SPIRIT.  A proactive and positive spirit will help the cancer warrior be a survivor.  Anger, un-forgiveness, and bitterness put the body into a stressful and acidic environment.  Learn to have a loving and forgiving spirit.  Learn to relax and enjoy life.
Cancer cells cannot thrive in an oxygenated environment.  Exercising daily, and deep breathing help to get more oxygen down to the cellular level.  Oxygen therapy is another means employed to destroy cancer cells.

1. No plastic containers in micro.
2. No water bottles in freezer.
3. No plastic wrap in microwave.

Johns Hopkins has recently sent this out in its newsletters. This information is being circulated at Walter Reed Army Medical Center as well. 

Dioxin chemicals causes cancer, especially breast cancer.  Dioxins are highly poisonous to the cells of our bodies.  Don't freeze your plastic bottles with water in them as this releases dioxins from the plastic.

Recently, Dr.. Edward Fujimoto, Wellness Program Manager at Castle Hospital , was on a TV program to explain this health hazard. He talked about dioxins and how bad they are for us. He said that we should not be heating our food in the microwave using plastic containers.  This especially applies to foods that contain fat. He said that the combination of fat, high heat, and plastics releases dioxin into the food and ultimately into the cells of the body. Instead, he recommends using glass, such as Corning Ware, Pyrex or ceramic containers for heating food. You get the same results, only without the dioxin. So such things as TV dinners, instant Ramen Noodles, and soups, etc., should be removed from the container and heated in something else.  Paper isn't bad but you don't know what is in the paper. It's just safer to use tempered glass, Corning Ware, etc. He reminded us that a while ago some of the fast food restaurants moved away from the foam containers to paper . The dioxin problem is one of the reasons.

 Also, he pointed out that plastic wrap, such as Saran, is just as dangerous when placed over foods to be cooked in the microwave. As the food is nuked, the high heat causes poisonous toxins to actually melt out of the plastic wrap and drip into the food. Cover food with a paper towel instead.

How smart your right foot is?


We can lift left hand with right foot while parading, hold the handle of a bicycle and use feet for peddling  or use our hands for steering of a car and feet for pressing accelerator or brakes at the same time. So we think we can move them independently. But it is not so. Well, I have tried what is given below and can say that it is true for me at least.

Meat, Wine, fried foods and ..... Chocolates are Good!


This is what I usually write about other articles. In case of this article, I DO NOT endorse the advice. Though I do not agree with it, I follow it once in a while and enjoy!!!

I love this Doctor! He is answering my questions.

Q: I've heard that cardiovascular exercise can prolong life; is this true?
A: Your heart is only good for so many beats, and that's it... don't waste them on exercise. Everything wears out eventually. Speeding up your heart will not make you live longer; that's like saying you can extend the life of your car by driving it faster. Want to live longer? Take a nap.

Q: Should I cut down on meat and eat more fruits and vegetables?
A: You must grasp logistical efficiencies. What does a cow eat? Hay and corn. And what are these? Vegetables. So a steak is nothing more than an efficient mechanism of delivering vegetables to your system. Need grain? Eat chicken. Beef is also a good source of field grass (green leafy vegetable). And a pork chop can give you 100% of your recommended daily allowance of vegetable products.

Q: Should I reduce my alcohol intake?
A: No, not at all. Wine is made from fruit. Brandy is distilled wine, that means they take the water out of the fruity bit so you get even more of the goodness that way. Beer is also made out of grain. Bottoms up!

Q: How can I calculate my body/fat ratio?
A: Well, if you have a body and you have fat, your ratio is one to one. If you have two bodies, your ratio is two to one, etc.

Q: What are some of the advantages of participating in a regular exercise program?
A: Can't think of a single one, sorry. My philosophy is: No Pain...Good!

Q: Aren't fried foods bad for you?
A: YOU'RE NOT LISTENING!!! .... Foods are fried these days in vegetable oil. In fact, they're permeated in it. How could getting more vegetables be bad for you?

Q: Will sit-ups help prevent me from getting a little soft around the middle?
A: Definitely not! When you exercise a muscle, it gets bigger. You should only be doing sit-ups if you want a bigger stomach.

Q: Is chocolate bad for me?
A: Are you crazy? HELLO Cocoa beans! Another vegetable!!! It's the best feel-good food around!

Q: Is swimming good for your figure?
'If swimming is good for your figure, explain whales to me.

Q: Is getting in-shape important for my lifestyle?
A: Hey! 'Round' is a shape!

Well, I hope this has cleared up any misconceptions you may have had about food and diets.
And remember: 'Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways - Chardonnay in one hand - chocolate in the other - body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming 'WOO HOO, What a Ride'
AND...... For those of you who watch what you eat, here's the final word on nutrition and health. It's a relief to know the truth after all those conflicting nutritional studies.

1. The Japanese eat very little fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.
2. The Mexicans eat a lot of fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans..
3. The Chinese drink very little red wine and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.
4. The Italians drink a lot of red wine and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.
5. The Germans drink a lot of beers and eat lots of sausages and fats and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.

Eat and drink what you like. Speaking English is apparently what kills you because you tend to read more mails on topics like ‘7 steps to living healthy’!!!

प्राणायाम- रहस्य - विज्ञान

इस लेखमे जो विचार व्यक्त किये गये है, उनसे मै ना तो पूरी तरहसे सहमत हूँ, न ही उनका विरोध करता हूँ। मै इन्हे बस आपके सुपूर्द करता हूँ।

प्राणायाम- रहस्य - विज्ञान

प्राणायाम का अर्थ मात्र ब्रीदिंग exercise या व्यवस्थित रूप से साँस लेना और छोड़ना मात्र ही नहीं है, अगर ऐसा होता तो इसका नाम वायु आयाम या श्वासायाम होता।

प्राण क्या है ?

प्राण एक चैतन्य ऊर्जा है जो जड़ और चेतन दोनों में व्याप्त है। चैतन्य वस्तुओं में प्राण सक्रीय या क्रियाशील दिखाई देती है और जड़ वस्तुओं में यह निष्क्रिय या सुप्त अवस्था में दिखाई देती है। प्राण सूक्ष्मतम मूलभूत तत्व है जो सृष्टि के समस्त बल, शक्तियों और क्रिया का आधार है।
मनुष्य जीवित रहने के लिए प्राण शक्ति को वायु, जल, सूर्य-प्रकाश, भोजन , विचारों , गहरी नींद , संतुष्ट मनःस्थिति और परिवेश से निरंतर ग्रहण करता रहता है। प्राण तत्व वायु के oxygen में प्रचुर रूप से व्यप्त है इसलिए वायु को प्राण-वायु भी कहा जाता है। लेकिन प्राण की सत्ता वायु से भिन्न है । मृत व्यक्ति को oxygen - cylinder लगा देने से भी , उसका जीवन वापिस नहीं लाया जा सकता है।

प्राणायाम क्या है ?

प्राणायाम यानि प्राण का आयाम या विस्तार . अर्थात सर्वव्यापक प्राण को निश्चित विधि द्वारा धारण कर उसका विस्तार करना। वायु में प्राण प्रचुर मात्र में पाया जाता है जिसे हम सहज में ग्रहण कर सकते हैं। श्वास -क्रिया द्वारा विश्व में व्याप्त प्राण तत्व को पर्याप्त मात्र में खींच कर शरीर में उसका उचित भण्डारण कर, शारीरिक और मानसिक स्वास्थ्य वृद्धि करने के अलावा अनेक अतीन्द्रिय शक्तियों का स्वामी बना जा सकता है। श्वास -प्रश्वास की लयबद्ध , तालबद्ध और क्रमबद्ध व्यवस्थित प्रक्रिया ही प्राणायाम है।
प्राणायाम साँस की गति को तेज़ करना नहीं वरन ताल-बद्ध और क्रम-बद्ध करना है। इस ताल- लय और क्रम में हेर फेर के आधार पर अनेक प्रकार के प्राणायाम बने हैं , जिनके विभिन्न प्रकार के प्रयोजनों की पूर्ति के लिए विविध प्रकार के उपयोग होते हैं।

प्राणायाम की आवश्यकता

शरीर की प्रत्येक कोशिका का जीवित रहने के लिए तीन तत्वों की परम आवश्यकता पड़ती है---रक्त, वायु और विद्युत। इन तीनों की पूर्ति जितनी अच्छी होगी उसी अनुपात में वह कोशिका सजीव, स्वस्थ और सुदृढ़ होगी। इन तीनो में एक की भी कमी से वह कोशिका दुर्बल, निस्तेज और रुग्ण हो जाएगी। अतः स्वस्थ रहने के लिए निरंतर रूप से इन तीनों तत्वों की सप्लाई होती रहनी आवश्यक है ।

प्राणायाम-शुद्ध वायु

सामान्यता हम उथली, आधी-अधूरी और अस्त-व्यस्त तरीके से साँस लेते हैं इससे हमारे फेफड़े का केवल 1/6 भाग ही प्रभावित हो पता है शेष भाग निष्क्रिय अवस्था में पड़ा रहता है। फेफड़ों द्वारा प्राचुर मात्र में वायु ग्रहण न करने के कारण अधिकांश एयर-सेल्स में oxygen परिवर्तन की प्रक्रिया नहीं हो पाती है। अल्प oxygen , रक्त के संचरण से दूषित कार्बनिक एसिड शरीर को बाहर नहीं निकल पता है , यह दूषित विकार रक्त के साथ पुनः ह्रदय से फेफड़ों में भेज दिया जाता है वहां फिर उसे पर्याप्त वायु न मिलाने से वही अशुद्ध रक्त पुनः धमनियों से पूरे शरीर में फ़ैल जाता है । इस प्रकार बीमारी, रोग और दुर्बलता का एक कुचक्र बन जाता है और अंतत व्यक्ति विशेष को अपने स्वाथ्य से वंचित हो जाना पड़ता है।
स्वास्थ्य रक्षा हेतु रक्त का शुद्ध और सशक्त रहना आवश्यक है। रक्त के शुद्ध रहने का मुख्य आधार oxygen है। शुद्ध रक्त का 1/4 भाग oxygen होता है। रक्त और oxygen मिल कर ही oxy -hemoglobin बनाते हैं जिसकी प्रचुरता टूटे-फूटे कोशिकाओं और दूषित और विषेले तत्वों को बाहर निकल कर शरीर को स्वाथ्य, उत्साह और सक्रियता प्रदान करना होता है।

प्राणायाम - जीव विद्युत

हमारे शरीर में लगभग 72,000 अति सूक्ष्म नाड़ियाँ हैं. यह नाड़ियाँ मस्तिष्क या रीढ़ की हड्डी से निकल कर बिजली की तारों की भांति समस्त शरीर में फ़ैल जाती है। शारीरिक संस्थान में गड़बड़ी होनेने से रक्त संचार में बाधा पहुंचती है। शरीर के विभिन्न अंगों को समुचित मात्र में रक्त न मिलाने के कारण विजातीय या विषेले तत्वों का निष्काशन नहीं हो पता है। इससे शरीर में विषाक्तता बढती है विभिन्न रोगों का आक्रमण होता हैं और मानव दुर्बल और रुग्ण हो जाता है।
ऑटोनोमस नर्वस सिस्टम या स्वयं संचालित श्वास - प्रश्वास क्रिया वेगस नर्व द्वारा गतिशील होती है। दायें -बाएं नासिका स्वरों के चलने से इडा-पिंगला नाड़ियों में लयबद्ध घर्षण होता है जिससे जीव -विद्युत का उत्पादन होता है और वेगस नर्व प्रभावित होती है।
वेगस नर्व का सीधा सम्बन्ध अचेतन मस्तिष्क से होता है जो शरीर में हार्मोन, नर्वस सिस्टम, माँस -पेशियों के अन्कुचन- प्रंकुचन , विभिन्न ग्लैंड्स , कोशिकाओं और अवयवों के कार्य-पद्धतियों को निश्चित रूप से प्रभावित करता है।
प्राणायाम करने से नाड़ियों का शोधन होता है. जिससे शारीरिक और मानसिक परिशोधन होता है।

प्राणायाम - स्टेम सेल्स

स्टेम सेल्स मूलभूत कोशिकाएं होती हैं जो हमारे शरीर में 200 प्रकार की कोशिकयों का निर्माण करते हैं, यही आगे जा कर शरीर के अलग-अलग अंगों की बनावट और कार्य-प्रणाली के लिए उत्तरदायी होते हैं।
जो स्टेम सेल्स 9 महीने में पूरे एक शरीर का निर्माण करने में सक्षम हैं , प्राणायाम के द्वारा हमारे ब़ोन - मैरो , मस्तिष्क , रीढ़, त्वचा, pancreas और रक्त नलिकाओं में प्रचुरता की मात्र में स्थित स्टेम सेल्स हमारे शरीर में बिना चीड़-फाड़ के उस जगह जा कर प्रत्यारोपित हो जाते हैं जहाँ इनकी जरुरत होती है।
इस प्रकार वे वहां के रोगी कोशिका ,अवयव और अंग की मरम्मत कर उसे नवजीवन प्रदान करतें हैं। अतः प्राणायाम द्वारा हमारे शरीर के आधारभूत स्टेम सेल्स अपनी संख्या बढा कर, स्ट्रोंग होकर और oxygen से युक्त होकर क्षतिग्रस्त अंग या कोशिका को दुरुस्त करते हैं और हमें नवजीवन और स्वास्थ्य प्रदान करते हैं।

प्राणायाम के लाभ


शरीर विज्ञान में मानव शरीर के अन्दर काम करने वाली भिन्न-भिन्न प्रणालियाँ हैं। इनमें प्रमुख हैं- तंत्रिका तंत्र, ग्रंथि तंत्र, श्वास तंत्र, रक्त परिसंचरण तंत्र एवं पाचन तंत्र . इन सभी पर प्राणायाम का गहरा प्रभाव पड़ता है। प्राणायाम से देह के विभिन्न हिस्सों और अवयवों पर दबाव पड़ता है। इस दबाव से उस क्षेत्र का रक्तसंचार बढ जाता है. रक्त के दौरे सुव्यव्स्तित ही जाने से उस अंग के स्वस्थता प्रभावित होती है।


प्राणायाम द्वारा हमारे स्नायु - मंडल, ज्ञान तंतु और मस्तिष्क पर पूर्ण प्रभाव पड़ता है। हमरी चेतना और बुद्धि विकसित होने लग जाती है, बुद्धि की ग्राह्यता बढ जाती है। अति सूक्ष्म विषयों को समझने की शक्ति आ जाती है। clairvoyance [अतीन्द्रिय ज्ञान ], telepathy [ विचार सम्प्रेषण ] , extra sensory perception [अतीन्द्रिय क्षमता] , pre- recognition [ पूर्वाभास], psychokinesis [ जड़ और चेतन को प्रभावित करना], पुनर्जनम,अध्यात्म रहस्यवाद की परतों को समझाने की क्षमता विकसित होने लग जाती है।


यथोचित शारीरक और मानसिक सुधार आने से आध्यत्मिक उत्थान आरंभ हो जाता है। रजोगुण और तमोगुण का नाश होता है, सतोगुण का अविर्भाव होता है।
मस्तिष्क की कल्पना, धारणा, इच्छा , निर्णय, नियंत्रण, स्मृति, प्रज्ञा आदि शक्तियों का उत्पादन, विकास और परिमार्गन होता है। प्राणायाम के नियमित अभ्यास से कई प्रकार की रिद्धियों-सिद्धियों की प्राप्ति सहित कुण्डलिनी-शक्ति का जागरण भी संभव हो पाता है।
20 मिनट प्रतिदिन प्राणायाम करने से मात्र 3 महीनों में हमारा औरा [Aura] जो साधारणतया 2 से 8 इंच तक फैला होता हैं वह 6 फीट तक विस्तार पा लेता है। प्राणायाम एक हानिरहित योगाभ्यास है। शारीरिक , मानसिक और आध्यात्मिक स्वास्थ्य और विकास के लिए हमें नियमित प्राणायाम करना चाहिये।

Natural remedies for Diabetes


These remedies are commonly tried and are found to be effective and helpful to some extent by a number of people, perhaps because they are good for improving general health of the body. However, they may not completely eliminate need for taking medicines.

Natural remedies for Diabetes

Diabetes is among the most debilitating of lifestyle diseases, often the precursor to many other types of health disorders such as obesity, cardiovascular diseases and chronic illnesses of the eye. Most diabetics tend to depend upon taking medications, many of which include hormone supplementation injections and drugs for controlling the sugar levels. Though these aids are often critical for managing cases where diabetes seems to have turned into an incurable condition, it is always better to seek natural cures. These natural remedies don’t put forth the kind of side-effects associated with stronger medications .

Drink water

Water tends to mobilize the high sugar content in blood and thereby helps in preventing aggravation. Drinking 2.5 litres of water, on a daily basis, will not only regulate physical functions but will also lower chances of cardiovascular and diabetic ailments.

Green Tea

Green tea is nothing less than a miracle cure for ailments. Consuming a cup of unsweetened green tea regularly will rid the body of free radicals and let the antioxidants, contained within, normalize the blood sugar levels. This will aid in reducing diabetes and help keep the chances at bay.

Fresh Fruits

Natural fruit sugars are the best options, as dietary supplements, since they provide all the necessary vitamins and minerals required. Studies have shown that an adequate intake of Vitamin A and C maintains blood and bone health. Include fresh citrus fruits like oranges, apples, pineapples, grapes and lemons in your diet. Consume bananas in moderation, since their sugar structure is more complex than that of citrus fruits.

Fresh Vegetables

Fresh vegetables are rich sources of iron, zinc, potassium, calcium and other essential nutrients. These nutrients restore the balance and aid in overall cardiovascular and nervous health. This prompts the body to assimilate proteins and produce insulin in an optimum level.

Cinnamon Powder

Powdered cinnamon, apart from spicing up your foods, has the ability to lower blood sugar levels, as well. Take a pinch of cinnamon with warm water every day and kiss diabetes goodbye.


Studies have shown that moderate exposure to sunlight boosts the physical synthesis of vitamin D, which is essential for doing away with insulin resistance in the body. Lack of Vitamin D results in low insulin production. While soaking up the sun might sound like an excellent yet easy remedy, to reduce diabetes levels, one must pay attention not to overexpose themselves to avoid risks of skin cancer.

Using Methi Seeds:

 Fenugreek or Methi seeds are considered the most effective of natural cures that can help alleviate typical symptoms of diabetes. Methi seeds should be soaked in water overnight. The water concentrated with the seeds’ juices should be consumed early in the morning on an empty stomach.

Camphor - The effective & healthy mosquito repellent


I think the remedy suggested below would be harmless, whether effective or not. The important point to be noted is DO NOT Burn the camphor. Let it just evaporate and spread in air. After burning it will vanish and may cause pollution. 
Malaria and Dengue are on a steep rise. We all must be using liquid or the old blue tablet type of mosquito repellents sold under various names. Despite their use, it is common to see mosquitoes hovering around with the best of repellents in action. Secondly, we cannot use these mosquito repellents whole day,  they being of any brand. Thirdly, many people land up with allergies due to them.

In the past, man would light diyas and burn camphor on a regular basis as a part of daily puja. These helped to purify the air and keep harmful bacteria, viruses, and mosquitoes away! We can definitely have a better and healthy environment with the use of camphor.

Camphor or Kapur is a waxy, white, or transparent substance extracted from the wood of the Camphor Laurel tree found in Asia. Camphor has many known medicinal uses-

It relieves nasal congestion and cough when rubbed on the chest as an oil. Camphor is used as an ingredient in throat lozenges and cough syrups and in Vicks. Camphor is also used in some anti-itch ointments, creams and cooling gels because it is can be absorbed through skin and is effective at treating pain locally. It has an analgesic effect which makes it a favorite oil to be used in pain relieving massage blends for sore muscles and arthritic pain. Camphor is known to improve the quality of air making it a better for our lungs and heart.

Many people are not aware of the Mosquito repellent power of Camphor - a simple solution without side effects and very cost effective. CAMPHOR IS A NATURAL MOSQUITO REPELLENT With effect round the clock! You do not need to burn it for that. There are three easier ways to do it -

1. Put 2 tablets of commercially available camphor on any warm surface- the device shown in the picture serves the purpose well. Plug it for an hour and see the results! You can do it twice a day- morning and in the night as well!
2. Place 2 tablets of camphor on different corners of the room or at places where mosquitoes seem to love to stay! Leave them there and they will evaporate in a day or so keeping the air purer and mosquito free.
3. Take a wide opened cup or plate with water. Drop 2 tablets of Camphor into the water. Keep the cup with water and camphor in your sleeping room.. The quantity of water and camphor may differ from room size. Water evaporates at normal temperature. Camphor slowly started dissolving in water. The water evaporates with Camphor smell. Adding little bit hot water gives instant action.
You will be amazed at the results! Do experience it and help spread these healthy tips!

Great Brain power

We always stress on correctness of spelling. In some cases a wrong spelling may mean use of a wrong word and change the meaning altogether, but it is exceptional case. In case of most normal spelling mistakes, our smart brain takes care of it and we get the correct meaning. In the following example each and every word is mis-spelt, even some numbers are mixed up with letters. You can still read them.  Just as you have understood what Klostrol and Choklet means!

        Wow!  Good example of a Brain Study: If you can read this OUT LOUD you have a strong mind. And better than that: Alzheimer's is a long, long, way down the road before it ever gets anywhere near you.

I could not beleive that I could actually understand what I was reading. The phenominal power of the human mind, according to  a research at Cembridge University, it does not maater in what order the letters in a word are, the only important thing is that the first and the last letter be in the right place.The rest can be in a total mess and you can still read it without a problem. This is because the human mind does not read every letter by itself, but the word as a whole. Amazing huh? Yeah and I always thought spelling was important!

The View count of this blog has now crossed 300.

Since I am already above 60 and approaching 70 I failed in the first test itself. However, younger people can try and practice.

The essence of the exercise is that your "Eyes Must be Closed" when you are doing this exercise. You must practice the "Jin Ji Du Li" exercise with the eyes closed. This exercise was so simple and amazing that I thought I had to share it here.
Here is the exercise:
  Stand on one leg while your eyes are closed. That is all. Just try it right now, stop reading and stand up, close your eyes and try standing on one foot.
  If you are not able to stand for less than 10 seconds, it means that your body has degenerated to 60 to 70 years old level in other words, you may be only 40 years old, but your body has aged a lot faster.
  I myself & my wife tried this exercise when I read the mail. I thought "No big deal, I’m sure we all can do this easily". I was fooling myself,
I’m glad I tried it because I discovered much to my surprise that while both of us could stand easily on one foot with our eyes open, trying the same thing with our eyes closed was another story! We just couldn’t keep our balance for more than two to three seconds before we started wobbling and hopping around.
  You do not need to lift your leg high, if your internal organs are out of synch, even lifting your leg this bit will make you wobble.
These Chinese are really very advanced in their knowledge of the human body. It was very heartening to know that frequent and regular practice can help you recover your sense of balance. In fact Chinese specialists suggest daily practice of Jin Ji Du Li for 1 minute, this helps prevent dementia/ FORGETFULLNESS
  You can try slightly closing both eyes while practicing Jin Ji Du Li, instead of completely closing them; in fact this is what the health specialist Zhong Li Ba Ren recommends.
 Daily practice of Jin Ji Du Li, can help in healing many illnesses or diseases like
    * Hypertension,
    * High Blood Sugar or diabetes,
    * Neck and Spinal diseases,
    * it can also prevent you from getting dementia.
 Zhong Li Ba Ren has written a book titled "Self Help is Better than Seeking Doctors' Help", which is a bestselling book that has been the best seller health book in China since it was first published last year. Its success can be measured by the fact that it has been reprinted 12 times within 6 months, with more than 1 million copies sold. The book is a hot seller because is it teaches many simple practical health tips.

It is said that according to the understanding of Chinese physicians, diseases appear in the body because the co-ordination between the various internal organs encounter problems and that causes the body to lose its balance.  Jin Ji Du Li can readjust this inter-relationship of the organs and how they function with each other.  Zhong Li Ba Ren stated that many people can't stand on one foot with their eyes closed for even 5 seconds, but later on as they practice it daily, are able to stand for more than 2 minutes.
 As you gain ability to stand for longer time, the feeling of "head heavy, light feet disappears. As benefits or practicing Jin Ji Du Li, you will experience that the quality of sleep improves, the mind clears up and memory improves significantly.
Most importantly if you can practice Jin Ji Du Li with your eyes closed for 1 minute every day, you will not get dementia.

The actions listed below, except probably bathing, are very commonly taken by many people after having a meal, .  In my opinion they are just as good or bad as taken at any other time. There may be some truth about their effect on digestion of food, but our body has got sufficient extra margins to take care of that small disturbance, if any, caused by these actions.  Actually, I thought this was a humorous piece! So enjoy!


*     Don't smoke- Experiment from experts proves that smoking a cigarette after meal is comparable to smoking 10 cigarettes (chances of   cancer  higher).

*     Don't eat fruits immediately - Immediately eating fruits after meals will cause stomach to be bloated with air. Therefore take fruit 1-2 hr after meal or 1hr before meal.

*  Don't drink tea -Because tea leaves contain a high content of acid. This substance will cause the Protein content in the food we consume to be hardened thus difficult to digest.

*    Don't loosen your belt - Loosening the belt after a meal will easily cause the intestine to be twisted & blocked.

* Don't bathe - Bathing after meal will cause the increase of blood flow to the hands, legs & body thus the amount of blood around the stomach will therefore decrease.  This will weaken the digestive system in our stomach.

  *   Don't walk about - People always say that after a meal walk a hundred steps and you will live till 99. In actual fact this is not true. Walking will cause the digestive system to be unable to absorb the nutrition from the food we intake.

*    Don't sleep immediately - The food we intake will not be able to digest properly. Thus will lead to gastric & infection in our intestine.

Micro waved water


There has been a lot of propaganda against use of Micro wave ovens, some of it was later on found to be hoax. I do not know whether this is part of it. Still it would be safer to be cautious.  There is no need to boil water in microwave oven.

A 26-year old decided to have a cup of coffee. He took a cup of water and put it in the microwave to heat it up (something that he had done numerous times before). I am not sure how long he set the timer for, but he told me he wanted to bring the water to a boil. When the timer shut the oven off, he removed the cup from the oven. As he looked into the cup, he noted that the water was not boiling, but instantly the water in the cup "blew up" into his face. The cup remained intact until he threw it out of his hand but all the water had flown out into his face due to the build up of energy. His whole face is blistered and he has 1st and 2nd degree burns to his face, which may leave scarring. He also may have lost partial sight in his left eye. While at the hospital, the doctor who was attending to him stated that this is fairly common occurrence and water (alone) should never be heated in a microwave oven. If water is heated in this manner, something should be placed in the cup to diffuse the energy such as: a wooden stir stick, tea bag, etc. It is however a much safer choice to boil the water in a teakettle.

General Electric's (GE) response:

Thanks for contacting us. I will be happy to assist you. The e-mail that you received is correct. Microwaved water and other liquids do not always bubble when they reach the boiling point. They can actually get superheated and not bubble at all. The superheated liquid will bubble up out of the cup when it is moved or when something like a spoon or tea-bag is put into it. To prevent this from happening and causing injury, do not heat any liquid for more than two minutes per cup. After heating, let the cup stand in the microwave for thirty seconds before moving it or adding anything into it.

Free Blood Cancer Medicine ~ is a Hoax??


We receive a number of emails from our friends asking us to circulate them further. They have sent them in good faith and we also think of forwarding them further, in good faith, because it costs us nothing. However, if such mails crowd the internet, we may lose valuable really good messages.

mitinef Mercilet  Free Blood Cancer Medicine ~ is a Hoax

Many of you might have a received mails similar to the one below.
Subject: Free Medicine for Blood Cancer!!!! Please don’t delete this without forwarding

Dear all,
I have forwarded it to the maximum I can.
Let it reach the 110 crores Indians and the remaining if any.
Put yourself, if you or your brother or sister or your mom and dad or any x, y, z near you, got affected, then how u would have reacted, think it, Forward it.
‘Imitinef Mercilet’ is a medicine which cures blood cancer. Its available free of cost at “Adyar Cancer Institute in Chennai”. Create Awareness. It might help someone.
Forward to as many as u can, kindness cost nothing.

This seems to be a hoax, as it is in most such mails. Quoting this report from
According to this message, India’s Adyar Cancer Institute is distributing, free of charge, a medicine named ‘Imitinef Mercilet’ that cures blood cancer. The message is circulating rapidly via email and is also making its way around the Internet via blogs, forums and social networking websites.
The Adyar Cancer Institute is a real health facility located in the city of Chennai, India and, as its name implies, it indeed specializes in cancer treatment and research. The Adyar Cancer Institute has achieved great results in the treatment and research of cancer since its establishment in 1954.
I contacted a spokesperson at the Adyar Cancer Institute to ask about the veracity of the message. He sent me the following reply:
Only the Part of this message is true. The medicine Imitinef is available free for only qualified persons and not for all. It is free for those who have admitted in the hospital for treatment.
‘Imitinef Mercilet’ is apparently an alternative spelling of the drug Imatinib mesylate which is used in the treatment of some forms of leukemia along with other types of cancer. Imatinib, often referred to a “Gleevec”, has proved to be an effective treatment for some forms of cancers. However, “blood cancer” is a generalized term for cancers that affect the blood, lymphatic system or bone marrow. The three types of blood cancer are listed as leukemia, lymphoma, and multiple myeloma. These three malignancies require quite different kinds of treatments. While drugs (including Imatinib), along with other treatments such as radiation can help to slow or even stop the progress of these cancers, there is currently no single drug treatment that can be said to actually cure all such cancers.
Moreover, it should be noted that Imatinib is available for cancer patients in many different health facilities around the world, not just the Adyar Cancer Institute.
Thus, although there are some elements of truth to this message, its is also potentially misleading and contains inaccurate information.
