    DO NOT GET SCARED OF H1N1medias are creating lot of panic in the society, and getting the sms stating that there is a prevention in the homeopathy and influnzinum is the medicine for preventtion of H1N1, it is not the fact, homeopathy treat's the person not the disease,and there is the concept of Genus Epidemicus IN HOMOEOPATHY,we have to take the current disease picture and have decide on the medicineplease do not get panic,What Is Swine Flu?Swine flu, also known as the H1N1 virus, made headlines in 2009 when it was declared a pandemic (Dandagi & Byahatti, 2011). Pandemics are contagious diseases affecting people throughout the world or on multiple continents at the same time. H1N1 has already been seen in 74 countries across the globe. (Dandagi & Byahatti, 2011).H1N1 is highly contagious, allowing it to spread quickly from person to person. A simple sneeze may cause thousands of germs to spread through the air. The virus can linger on tables and surface areas like door knobs, waiting to be picked up.The swine flu causes many symptoms similar to regular influenza. Diagnosis can be made by testing a swab of mucus from the nose or throatRisk Factors for Swine FluSwine flu is unusual because it does not target the same age group as the rhino virus (typical flu). The disease focuses on young adults. This is unusual because most flu viruses attack those who are elderly or very young. Some form of immunity to swine flu may exist in the elderly due to previous flu exposures.Other risk factors for swine flu include:• compromised immune system (from a disease such as AIDS)• pregnancy• past history of infectionsCause of Swine FluThe swine flu is caused by a strain of influenza virus that usually only infects pigs. Unlike typhus, which can be transmitted by lice or ticks, the main transmission is not from pigs to people, but rather from person to person.Swine flu is very contagious. The disease is spread through saliva and mucus particles. People may spread them by:• sneezing• coughing• touching a germ-covered surface and then touching their eyes or noseSymptoms of Swine FluThe symptoms of swine flu are very much like those of regular influenza. They include:• chills• fever• coughing• sore throatDiagnosing Swine FluA diagnosis is made by sampling fluid from those with swine flu. To take a sample, a doctor or nurse may take a swab of the nose or throat.The swab will be analyzed using various genetic and laboratory techniques to identify the specific type of virus.Treating Swine FluAs of 2009, the CDC has recommended healthcare workers in contact with swine flu or suspected swine flu patients should take precautions. Precautions against infection include:• wearing gloves and/or gowns• using eye protection• wearing face masksIn known cases of swine flu, patients should be isolated to prevent the spread of H1N1.Outlook for Swine FluSevere cases of swine flu can be fatal. Most fatal cases are in those with underlying conditions, such as HIV/AIDS. The majority of people with swine flu recover and can anticipate a normal life expectancy.Preventing Swine FluEasy ways to prevent swine flu (in addition to being vaccinated) include:• washing hands frequently with soap or hand sanitizer• not touching your nose, mouth, or eyes because the virus can survive on telephones, tabletops, etc.• staying home from work or school if you are ill to keep others healthy• Avoiding large gatherings when swine flu is in season. Flu season shifts a little bit from year to year,

    Ritu Charya
    Ritu in Sanskrit means season. As mentioned earlier that ayurveda believes in maintaing health and prevention from disease. India is a land of diversity of seasons. In India there are 6 types of seasons. These are1. Shishir (winter season)

    1. Shishir (winter season)
    2. Basant (spring)
    3. Gresham (summers)
    4. Varsha (rainy)
    5. Sharad (autumn)
    6. Hemant (early winters)
    Such a diversity of seasons only occurs in Indian subcontinent. But it can also lead to various troubles if life style is not maintained according to seasons.
    First we will discuss the impact of sun on earth and on our body as the basic energy on earth is derived from sun. Sun has the direct impact on the vegetation and every living being. Rays of sun have different impacts on human body and vegetation as the intensity of rays and heat vary from season ro season.
    First we will talk about the intensity and effect of sun on our health i.e. when sun rays fall on northern hemisphere (utrayan kaal) and when rays fall on the southern hemisphere it is called dakshiayan kaal.
    As the sun rays fall directly on the northern hemisphere, this part of the globe experiences summers and this time there is winters in southern hemisphere and vice versa.

    • Uttrayan kaal (Northern solstice)
    • Dakshiayan kaal (southern solstice
    • Hemant Ritu and shishir Ritu
    • Basant Ritu
    • Grisham Ritu
    • Varsha Ritu
    • Sharad Ritu
    • Ritu viparyaya (perverted season)

    Ritu satmyam
    Utrayan kaal (northern solstice)
    It is the phase of the earth when sun rays are falling directly on northern hemisphere. The countries above the equator faces summers. In Indian context it is the phase that progress to wards the summer season which falls during the months of January to June. This phase is also known as aadan kaal and is agneye i.e. extremely hot in nature.This phase faces intense rays and heat of the sun. Due to its property rays from the sun makes the air dry and heated and takes away all the coolness present in air. This character of air makes all the moisture in air to dry and air becomes rough. This makes all the animals and plants gain the ruksh (dry) and filled with katu (pungent), tickt (bitter) and kashaya (astringent) rasa (taste). These factors diminishes strength of an individual. More over environment around him also contributes to this factor. His food is also influenced by these factors. You might have noticed that people get tired during summers easily and also loses their weight. There energy levels also decreases and the stamina fades away. According to ayurveda it includes three ritus (seasons) these are shishir, basant and hemant.
    Dakshiayan kaal (southern solstice)
    This the phase when sun rays fall directly on the southern hemisphere therefore has great heating effects on that phase but in northern hemisphere rays of the sun falls in slanting way. This phase comes between July to December. In this phase northern hemisphere approaches winters as the rays of the sun are falls slanting. During this phase there is good moisture in air and vegetation is also juicy and pulpy. This phase represent growth of body. In this phase there is good amount of growth. Energy levels in individual are high and stamina is at its peak. This phase is also known as visarg kaal. Due to increase in madhur (swet), amal (sour) and lavan (salt) rasa. Body is provided with good nourishment and is important for good growth in the body. In this phase there is also increase in strength in the body. Dryness also disappears from body and the enviornment. According to ayurveda it included three ritus. These are varsha, sharad and hemant.
    Hemant Ritu and Shishir Ritu
    Referred to as the season that is the beginning of winters. Indian calendar months are magha-phagun-chaitra-vaishakha According to ayurveda in this season, there is quite dusty environment.

According to modern calendar it falls in month of November and December as of hemant Ritu and January and February as of shishir Ritu.
    Effect of Hemant Ritu and Shishir Rituon body
    Jatharagni (digestive fire) get ignited and appetite increases. Due to this capacity body easily digest guru aahar (heavy food). As this lies in dakshiayan phase hence body grows due to increased appetite. Heavy food is not consumed accordingly then this increased metabolism of the body start consuming bodies dhatus therefore leading to weaknesses body.

    • One should avoid heavy foods, curd, oils and alcohol
    • Ritu sandhi and its regimen
    It is very obvious thing that a ritu (season) would not change suddenly. In between two ritus there is a transitional period which is called ritu sandhi kaalam. In this phase there is a combined effect of both the ritus i.e. one previous one and other which have to come. It is of 14 days duration and consists of last week of the outgoing season and first week of in coming season. In this phase the seasonal regimen of previous season should be gradually omitted and regimen of the forthcoming season gradually introduced. If one does not follow this regimen properly then one can get affected by asatmya janaya roga.

    Ritu Viparyaya (perverted season)
    When we get the unnatural and unexpected seasonal symptoms, i.e. different symptoms in a season, it is called ritu viparyaya, e.g. in the month on May-June (grisham ritu), we are expecting clear sky with a sharp rays of sun and hot temperature or in the month or January and February (shishir ritu) we get the hot climate. But if we experience, cloudy sky and rains in that month then this is perverted season
    Ritu viparyaya is one of the cause in which bodies doshas gets imbalanced thus leads to cause of disease. More over due environmental changes it cause huge damage to human resources like agriculture etc thus ultimately plays part in disturbing human body physiology.

    Ritu satmyam
    Man is epitome of the universe. Environmental changes always affect the human being. But man responds to the seasonal changes in variety of ways. As an example few people sweat profusely, as of pitta prakruti, in summers then in other people.
    Hence it becomes essential to understand that of what prakruti a person is and what effect it has on his health.

    Ugadi marks the beginning of the New Year. It also brings happiness with the onset of Vasanth Ruthu (spring). It is the most important festival for Hindus, which falls on Chaitra Shuddha Prathipade (Padya). According to Hindu myths, Lord Brahma created the earth and set days, nights, dates, weeks, fortnights, months, seasons, and years to count the time. During Ramayana period, the New Year was being celebrated on the first day of Uttharayana. So, Chaitra was the 12th month. Varahamihira, a saint who lived in sixth century, started a new method of celebrating New Year on Chaitra Shuddha Prathipade. His calculation was based on the onset of spring.

    Followers of Chandramana system (Shalivahana Shaka), mostly living in southern states including Marharashtra, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Andra Pradesh and Kerala, celebrate Ugadi as New Year on Chaitra Shuddha Padya. But those who follow Vikrama Shaka system and also the devotees of Goddess Shakthi celebrate New Year on Karthika Shuddha Padya.

    Ugadi name has been changed from Yuga Aadi (Yuga + Aadi means beginning of New age). It is believed that the creator of the Hindu pantheon Lord Brahma started creation on this day - Chaithra Shuddha Prathipade or the Ugadi day.

    Ugadi heralds the beginning of the New Year, new month and new day. It also marks a beginning of new life with plants acquiring new life, shoots and leaves. Chaithra Masa (month) ends the shivering winter season. We see budding tender leaves, flowers and fruits; listen to chanting of birds and smell fragrance of flowers from distance. We find happiness booming everywhere. So, the earth will appear in a special delight. Naturally, it is the happiest day of the year. The vibrancy of life and verdant fields and meadows full of colorful blossoms signifies growth, prosperity and well-being.

    Preparations for the festival begin a week ahead. Houses are given a thorough wash. Shopping for new clothes and buying other items that go with the requirements of the festival are done with a lot of excitement. People wake up before the break of dawn, apply coconut oil on their skin and take a head bath after which they decorate the entrance of their houses with fresh mango leaves. Wearing new clothes, they offer Pooja for the God, invoking his blessings before they start off with the New Year. They pray for their health, wealth and prosperity and success in business too. Ugadi is the most auspicious time to start new ventures.

    People consume Bevu (neem) and Bella (jaggery). The neem, though tastes bitter for the tongue, it is good for health. It is also used in cosmetics, toothpaste, soaps, cow fodder, manure, oil and others products due to its high medicinal contents. It is also useful for patients having diabetes and skin diseases.

    Jaggery increases haemoglobin in blood and provides additional energy for the body. Sugarcane, the raw material for producing jaggery, helps in having strong teeth and health gems. Its juice fights against jaundice.

    The inner significance of this is to indicate that life is a mixture of good and bad, joy and sorrow, success and disappointment, and all of them have to be treated alike. All experiences have to be treated with equanimity. Every one should resolve to face calmly whatever happens in this year, accepting it with good grace. Consider everything is for one’s own good. Men should rise above sorrow and happiness, success and failure. Auspicious days like Ugadi should be used for making resolutions to change our way of life and to purify our behaviour by giving up all bad qualities. Ugadi is a festival that teaches lessons in selfless service.

    People listen to Panchanga (Panchanga Shravana-listening to the yearly calendar) on Ugadi. Experts will open the new Panchanga on the day and explain the forecast of rain, crop, storms, crop prices and other relevant things. Prediction of the whole year and make people prepared to face any situation. People also watch the moon (Chandra Darshana) as it an eventful day.

    Ugadi marks the beginning of a new Hindu lunar calendar with a change in the moon's orbit. This festival is celebrated with fervour in Maharashtra, Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh. Known as Ugadi in AP and Karnataka, it is known as Gudipadava in Maharashtra. People prepare for the occasion by spring-cleaning their houses and buying new clothes and other items. Houses are decorated with fresh mango leaves. There are also typical dishes associated with Ugadi.

    It is the beginning of the Telugu New Year. Spring is the first season of the year, Chaithra is the most vital month and the bright fortnight (Shukla Paksha) is the better part of the month. The first day of the lunar month is auspicious. As all these important elements are present, it has special significance as marking the commencement of a New Year, described as Ugadi.

    Swami Vivekananda on HOMOEOPATHY

    An allopath comes and treats cholera patients and gives them his medicines. The Homeopath comes and gives his medicines and cures perhaps more than the allopath does because the Homoeopath does not disturb the patients but allows the nature to deal with them.

    Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel
    (October 31, 1875 - December 15, 1950)
    Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel the iron-man of India was born on 31st October, 1875, in a small village in Nadiad. His father Jhaverbhai Patel was a simple farmer and mother Laad Bai was a simple lady. From his childhood itself, Patel was a very hard-working individual. He used to help his father in farming and studied in a school at N. K. High school, Petlad. He passed his high-school examination in 1896. Throughout school he was a very wise and intelligent student. In spite of poor financial conditions his father decided to send him to college but Vallabhbhai refused. Around three years he stayed at home, worked hard and prepared for the District Leader's examination, hence passing with very good percentage.
    Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel is a historical figure who moves you to tears. Mostly these are tears of joy, for he achieved a thrilling Indian unity. Yet some are tears of pity, for the Sardar suffered and sacrificed much.Sardar Patel hated to work for anyone especially the Britishers. He was a person of independent nature. He started his own practice of law in a place called Godhara. Soon the practice flourished. He saved money, made financial arrangement for the entire family. He got married to Jhaberaba. In 1904, he got a baby daughter Maniben, and in 1905 his son Dahya was born. He sent his elder brother to England for higher studies in law. In 1908, Vitthabhai returned as barrister and started practising in Bombay. In 1909 his wife became seriously ill and was taken to Bombay for treatment Vallabhbhai had to go for the hearing of an urgent case and his wife died. He was stunned. He admitted his children in St. Mary's school Bombay, and he left for England. He became a barrister and retuned to India in 1913.
    He started his practice in Ahmedabad and soon he became aware of the local life, activities and people's problems. He became an extremely popular person and he got elected in the Municipal Corportaion in 1917. Around 1915, he came across Mahatma Gandhi. The Swadeshi Movement was at its peak. Gandhiji gave a lecture at a place in Ahmedabad where Patel heard him and was very impressed and started actively participating in the freedom movement. The British government's atrocities were increasing. The government declared to confiscate all the lands of farmers. He forced the British government to amend the rules. He brought together the farmers and encouraged them and hence got the title of 'Sardar' and thus became famous.
    The British government considered him as a threat and his lectures were considered anti-government and he was imprisoned several times. In 1942, he took part in the Quit India Movement under the leadership of Mahatma Gandhi. He was arrested along with other leaders and was sent to Ahmednagar jail. Inspite of the British Rule, rulers of the small kingdoms were spending a lot of public money, and were having a nice time. Sardar Vallabh Bhai opposed this.
    With great wisdom and political foresight, he consolidated the small kingdoms. The public was with him. He tackled the Nizam of Hyderabad and the Nawab of Junagarh who initially did not want to join India. There were a lot of problems connected with the reunion of the numerous states into India. Sardar Patel's untiring efforts towards the unity of the country brought success. Due to the achievement of this massive task, Sardar Patel got the title of 'Iron Man'. ‘He is one of the prestigious leaders of the world who became immmortal by uniting a scattered nation without any bloodshed. His enthusiasm to work for the independent nation got a big jolt when Gandhiji was murdered. Patel was very attached to Gandhiji and considered him, his elder brother and teacher. He was encouraged by Mahatma Gandhi in all his work. Gandhiji's death left him broken. On 15th December, 1950 he died of a cardiac arrest. The news of his death spread all over the world. The entire nation plunged into deep sorrow; everyday life came to a standstill. A grateful nation paid a tearful homage to it's beloved leader. In 1991 the grateful nation conferred upon him the honor of Bharat Ratna.

    Devanahalli Venkataramanaiah Gundappa (Padmabhushan Dr. D V Gundappa) (Kannada: ದೇವನಹಳ್ಳಿ ವೆಂಕಟರಮಣಯ್ಯ ಗುಂಡಪ್ಪ, ಡಿ.ವಿ.ಗುಂಡಪ್ಪ), popularly known as DVG, was a prominent Kannada writer and a philosopher. He is renowned for Manku Thimmana Kagga, a collection of verses.

    Early Life

    DVG was born in the year 1887 in Mulbagal/Mulabagilu taluk of Kolar district in the Indian state of Karnataka. DVG completed his primary school education in Kannada in the year 1898. He also attained basic education in English apart from learning Sanskrit on own interest. Later he continued his education in Mysore from the Maharaja high school. Even though DVG did not pass matriculation exam (10th Standard), he had discontinued formal education after matriculation, his essays were selected as chapters for Graduation text books and PhD thesis. He had vast knowledge in these areas:

    Veda, Vedanta, BrahmaSutra, DharmaSutra
    Sanskrit, Kannada, and other Indian languages.
    Political situation of Karnataka
    Ramayana and Mahabharata
    Engineering (was assistant of Sir. M. Vishveshwaraiah, who engineered the K.R.S Dam, which was the largest Dam in Asia at that time)
    Freedom fighters (Had been associated with Mahatma Gandhi and Lokamanya Tilak)
    Western Literature (has translated several Shakespeare plays and other Greek plays to Kannada)
    Islamic literature (Umarana osage, a translation of poems of Omar Khayyam in Kannada)

    His Mankuthimmana Kagga is considered a Nobel prize winning material, if it had been written in English. The greatness of this work is that—it makes the reader see himself through the poems, to interpret the thoughts of the poet in his own way. The philosophy hidden in these short 4 liners is suited for any section of the society regardless of their religion, status, qualification etc. Basically it is for the entire humanity, such is the vastness and depth of DVG’s most of the literary works. He was closely associated with the Gokale institute of Public Affairs, Bangalore. Sri Nittoor Srinivasa Rao, The then Chief Justice of Karnataka, Sri Masti Venkatesa Iyengar, Literary Genius, Prof.V.T.Srinivasan, The then Principal of Vijaya College, Bangalore were some of his close associates.

    DVG died on 7 October 1975. Chief Minister and several minsters of the state of Karnataka came to pay their last respects at his residence in Nagasandra road (now called DVG Road) in Basavanagudi.

    Why Choose Homeopathy

    Homeopathy hasn't a long history. It was discovered only 200 years ago, but still received a raputable position in medical streams. The reason of its success and why one should choose homeopathy as his first choice are as follows :

    Homeopathy :: A complete science
    Homeopathy is a complete science in itself, it helps not only to cure diseases but also to groom whole personality. A homeopath treats the patint and not the disease. It deals with the root causes which are affecting his vital force and personality. After complete treatment the patient feels the difference in his nature and disease adaptability.

    Homeopathy do not remove the disease, it cures...
    Like other medical systems, homeopathy doesn't work, where only the disease is treated and when patient says now he is ok, doctor discontinues his medicine. Homeopathy works on the root cause so there will be no chance that patient has same disease with same reasons again in his life. This is the unique mechanism, which no other medical stream have.

    One doctor for all problems
    Homeopathy is a science which believes that diseases are only a mirror image to represent that our body's healing power is not sufficient to cure them, so homeopathic medicines work on that healing power or vital force. That's why homeopathy specialist can cure any sort of disease, whether it has concern with dermatology, cardiology, opthalmo & ENT or with hairfall, mental diseases or orthopedic cases. So we have a physician who gives a single medicine for all the complaints we have. All with one doctor... one medicine and on one place.

    No side effects
    Constitutional system of medicine deals with a single disease at a time, also it avoids the root cause, so it actually not cures, but tries to control the disease and due to that external pressure patient feels that his disease cured, but soon after he start suffering from the same disease or another, which comes in front due to that pressure. For a general example we all know what pain killers do. It only stops the pain stimulations for some time to reach our nervous system and actual disease remains as it is. It not only a type of ignorance towards disease but also it is harmful for our natural nervous system which results in new diseases.

    Homeopathy actually cures the whole body and not the single organ or disease. Its medicines are based on the principle of 'like cure like', so these homeopathic medicines are prepared according to patient's personality and patient's body feels no extra pressure so it does not react abruptly and hence, they have no side effects.

    Fast Action
    Normally it is a myth that homeopathy works slowly, but in actual patient finds that he feels relieved within an hour of taking medicine. Homeopathy is not a pain killer, so patient feels the pain but the intensity of pain is reduced. And next time patient feels very much relaxed and then the disease cured forever. In case of normal viral or cough patient feels relaxed just in an hour. But it is a common notion that homeopathy is the choice for treating chronic cases or those patients who are not relieved or do not go well along with traditional drugs. So generally homeopaths receive cases which have both disease and previous medication side effects. So it is normal that homeopathy take some time to show its measurable results.

    Privilege in some diseases
    Homeopathy has its monopoly in some special sort of cases, which cannot be treated as fast and as better by other medical systems as homeopathy do. Like Mental Cases. Where constitutional system of medicine have no particular treatment for mental cases, it only reduces patient's reactional energy and soon after patient become silent, he stops his misbehave, talking, eating and everything which he did with happyness, homeopathy moves into its core issues and finds out the reasons responsible for his misbehave and after treatment he lives like a normal human being.

    Cost Effective
    Homeopathy is said to be 'the pathy of the common man'. Homeopathic medicines are cost effective and within the reach of common people.

    Easy to take
    Homeopathy medicines are available in ready to use format, just like constitutional medical system. Even most of the medicines are given in sugar globule media, so one just need to put it on tongue. Constitutional medicines must be taken after having some food or with milk, but homeopathy medicines need empty stomach, without milk and mostly without water. Where ayurvedic medicines needs a lot of efforts to make it usable and not easy enough to carry, homeopathic medicines need no extra care in carrying and while taking.

    Scientifically prepared Medicine
    Homeopathy medicines are prepared totally with scientific and hygienic manner. Every drop / particle of raw medicine is diluted with alcohol or distilled water and then physician takes only a drop from that mixture and dilute it again with alcohol or distilled water. This process continues untill physician receives the exact potency. After every dilution the physician put some rhythmatic strokes to energize the medicine. It is taken care that the medicine or diluted mixture's quantity, not exceed. Nowadays use of machines make this whole process more accurate and hygienic.

    Hygienic & easy to carry Packing
    Homeopathic bottles are sometimes of glass or of plastic. In both the cases the material used is, according to medical norms. A physician never uses the used bottles. Sugar globules are also prepared with all hygienic care. Nowadays from manufacturing to packaging, all work is done by machines. A small dram bottle may contain more than 20 homeopathic sugar globules of big size. It is easy to carry anywhere. Now we can have blister pack homeopathic pills and tablets too.

    First choice of children
    Children generally hesitate in taking medicine due to its bitter taste, that's why homeopathy sweet medicines are children's first choice. These medicines have no side effects so parents also prefer homeopathy for their children.

    Natural while good for nature...
    Homeopathic medicines are prepared mainly with natural abstracts, but the amount which needed for medicine is too minute that it does not harm nature and natural resources can be available for a long time.

    No Refrainisation
    Most of the medicines in homeopathy have no instructions to avoid some particular type of food etc. In most of the cases there is only one thing to remember that one must not drink water before and after 10 minutes of taking medicines. Some medicines show better result when we take them early in the morning, so physician sometimes tells us to take medicine with empty stomach. Also anything which have strong smell or taste like garlic should be taken before or after half an hour.

    Infants 'unable to use toy building blocks' due to iPod addiction
    The Association of Teachers and Lecturers warn that rising numbers of children are unable to perform simple tasks such as using building blocks because of overexposure to iPod and smart phones
    Rising numbers of infants lack the motor skills needed to play with building blocks because of an “addiction” to tablet computers and smartphones, according to teachers.
    Many children aged just three or four can “swipe a screen” but have little or no dexterity in their fingers after spending hours glued to iPads, it was claimed.
    Members of the Association of Teachers and Lecturers also warned how some older children were unable to complete traditional pen and paper exams because their memory had been eroded by overexposure to screen-based technology.
    They called on parents to crackdown on tablet computer use and even turn off wi-fi at night to address the problem.

    Why Kids Are Such Cold Magnets
    On average, kids under age 3 catch six to eight colds a year. "We think that since most children are encountering viruses for the first time, their immune systems aren't able to kill them as quickly as when they encounter them again. What's more, because kids aren't overly concerned about having a runny nose, the virus tends to end up on their hands, clothing, and toys--where it can live for 30 minutes. When another child touches an infected toy and then rubs her nose or eyes, she can catch the cold.

    However, having lots of sniffles early in life may protect kids later on. Researchers have found that children who develop frequent colds in preschool catch fewer colds during their school years--presumably because their immune systems have learned to recognize and fight off the bugs. And a German study has found that babies who have more than one cold before their first birthday are less likely to develop asthma by age 7.

    The Great Cholesterol Myth
    One of my top missions has been is to educate people on the true cause of heart disease, and it’s not cholesterol. Most doctors and cardiologists are still testing their patients’ cholesterol numbers and wearing out their prescription pads with orders for prescription-lowering statin drugs. Meanwhile the true cause of heart disease, inflammation, is still largely ignored

    The hypothetical link between high levels of total cholesterol and heart disease has NEVER been proven. It’s a diagnosis conjured up to serve drug companies who want to sell cholesterol-lowering statin drugs.

    Cholesterol levels are a poor predictor of heart attacks. Only about 50% of heart attack victims have high cholesterol levels, and 50% of people who have high cholesterol do not have heart disease.

    Recent studies suggest statin drugs are associated with a higher risk of diabetes, which is a major risk factor for heart disease.

    Parents of children with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) know the "Would you please just settle down!" phrase well, and likely use it on a regular basis.

    There are a number of tips to help parents settle their child with ADHD down. These quick tips and relaxation techniques take the same amount of time as yelling and scolding but produce incredibly different results in children with ADHD.

    Quick Calming Tips:
    Try quick tips to calm a hyperactive child down during temper outbursts or unusually rowdy days. These calming tips are not novel to adults by any stretch. How many times have you heard "Take a deep breath and count to 10" or "Calgon, take me away." What works for big people works for little people as well. Deep breathing is one of the simplest ways to calm the body. Teach your children to take deep breaths (in through the nose, out through the mouth) when they begin to feel frustrated and out of control. Parents, you do this too!

    Draw a warm salt bath or bubble bath to wash away the child's stresses of the day.

    Take your child for a walk or send them around the block on their own if they are old enough. Not only does walking burn off excess energy, the repetitive thump, thump, thump of feet hitting pavement brings the mind back into focus.

    Give your child a mini-massage. Touch is very important to Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder children. Massaging their temples, giving a shoulder rub or lightly running your fingers through their hair can calm children quickly.

    Put together a "Boredom Box" that provides creative outlets for your hyperactive child. Fill this box or plastic storage bin with paint sets, coloring books, crossword puzzles, modeling clay, jewelry making kits and other artistic areas of interest. Children with ADHD bore easily and their fast spinning minds need extra stimulation. In the absence of nothing better to do, children with ADHD will lean on their own devises and you don't want them doing that. Better that they draw than set the cat on fire...

    The quick-fix calming techniques work to sooth the child with ADHD after they already became too stressed or active. There are also techniques that parents can teach their child with ADHD to help them get the "stuff" out before it builds up and explodes.

    Create a calming home environment:
    Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder children have difficulty remaining calm in a hectic environment. Clearing the clutter and taking a "less is more" approach to decorating can reduce the sensory overload on the ADHD child.

    The Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder child's bedroom especially should be free of clutter. Use plastic bins to organize and store all those precious little plastic treasures (that we adults commonly refer to as "junk") and small toys. Open the curtains to provide natural lighting. Keep posters and wall hangings to a minimum. Paint the child's bedroom in calming muted colors instead of bright primary colors.

    If you play music in the house, opt for soft "elevator music" or classical music instead of rock. Try to avoid loud clatters and noises when your Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder child is at home.

    Follow a Routine:
    All children thrive in homes that provide routines, consistency and structure. Children with ADHD especially need structure and schedules to feel secure in their surroundings. For these children, a more "military" approach to routines works better. Waking up, eating meals, doing homework, and bed times should all occur at about the same time every day, with few surprises to upset the Attention Deficit or hyperactive child.

    A Place to Relax:
    If at all possible, find a space in the house to designate as a relaxation space. It does not have to be a large space but it does need to be away from high activity areas. This little corner (or even a portion of a walk-in closet) can have a beanbag chair and a few books, coloring books or other quiet time activities.

    Encourage your child to go to this space when they become angry or out of control, but never make this a place of punishment. This special spot in the house is a positive place where they can go to settle down, sort things out or just hang out when they need to be alone.

    For the child who is old enough to write, journaling is an excellent way to untangle frazzled minds and get things off their chest. This technique allows children with ADHD to spill their internal stresses outside themselves and onto paper.

    Develop a daily habit of having your child write a page or two, depending on their age, about anything that comes to mind. They can write "I hate school, the dog just drooled, the baby's crying is driving me crazy..." - whatever comes to mind. Eventually, they will get to the guts of what is going on inside them. Then rumple or tear the paper up and throw it away.

    These private internal thoughts are not for you or anyone else to read, ever. Please respect their privacy and let them know they can write anything down without fear of reprimand.

    Taking a mini-vacation with Guided Imagery:
    Guided imagery is a powerful relaxation tool for children with ADHD that pulls their focus to positive thoughts, all the while encouraging creativity in your child. You can check out books on this technique at your local library if you want further information on the subject.

    Last, but certainly not least, diet:
    Some parents find that reducing or eliminating sugar from the diet goes a long way in calming the hyperactive child. If your child is a finicky eater, you will need to supplement the diet to make sure your Attention Deficit or hyperactive child has the fuels needed for his body to function well.

    Starting the day out with a healthy breakfast balanced with proteins, fats and carbs is important. An egg sandwich, peanut butter toast and fresh fruit, protein shakes and fresh fruit smoothies are great ways to start the day for children with ADHD.

    Sugar cereals are quick and convenient but should not be used as a breakfast mainstay. Fruit juices are high in calories and sugar and not recommended for children, especially those with Attention Deficit or hyperactivity. Instead of juice or sodas, get in the habit of offering plain old H2O. With plenty of bottled waters that offer fruit flavors and vitamin enhancements, getting your children hydrated is easier now than ever before.

    Kids who regularly indulge in junk food may be at increased risk for health complications like obesity and depression.

    Junk food can be appealing for a variety of reasons, including convenience, price and taste. For children, who do not always understand the health consequences of their eating habits, junk food may appear especially appetizing. However, regularly consuming fattening junk food can be addictive for children and lead to complications like obesity, chronic illness, low self-esteem and even depression, as well as affecting how they perform in school and extracurricular activities.

    According to research published in October in the journal Electromagnetic Biology and Medicine, children absorb significantly more cell phone radiation than previously thought.
    This is because children have smaller heads and thinner skulls than adults, which means their bone marrow can absorb up to 10 times the radiation that an adult's might.
    While this doesn't tell us if phones are more dangerous for children, it does suggest that there's a need for caution with children regarding phone usage until more research is done.
