Hi My wife is pregnant for 13weeks, and she has severe headache what medicine to be taken, we for got to ask Dr. from last appointment.
You study one night before the exam but you manage an all nighter, thus you manage to pass. You study for a week for your sat exams but you manage a score little over 1800. You sit down for a few hours and you manage to finish the work your boss asked for a week ago. You push yourself and get the desired results. These results keep you happy, get the work done (in a long term successful manner) and turn out to be fast as well as effective! but, can you say the same in relation to starving to lose weight? yes it's fast, but is it effective? yes you might look thin, but internally are you happy when you're hungry? yes it's got the job done but will it be a long term success? the answer is no. Starving yourself to lose weight isn't the solution. Why, you ask? well here's a piece of my mind.
Metabolism vs metabolism:
Well the first ones an example of how slow your metabolic rate will be when you starve! since glucose and insulin play a major role in your metabolism levels, insufficient consumption of food will lead to a fall in their levels, eventually causing a decline in your metabolic rate. Then comes the second kind, that fast paced metabolism that's because regular meals keep your digestive system running which in turn paces up your metabolic rates.
No water vs no water weight:
When you decide to starve yourself, you say no to almost any item going into your mouth. You cant live on a peanut for lunch and one fruit for dinner! instead you need to trim the excess weight by getting rid of the water weight by cutting your carbs! for every gram of carb that you consume, your body retains 4 grams of water. No carbs, no retention. No water weight? that's right! say no to carbs, yes to healthy food and bye bye to water weight.
Malnutrition vs nutrition:
After a few months of starvation, there is a major cut in your staple food which leads to insufficient nutrients, vitamin and minerals. Without all the essentials for a balanced diet your body cannot function properly which could lead to serious illnesses and problems. On the other hand, if you eat right your body improves its immunity and keeps even the smallest cough away.
To sleep or not to sleep:
Those who starve themselves tend to get hungry (well, duh) during the odd hours of the night. This either keeps them up late at night or keeps waking them up every few hours. Or, even worse you binge eat at like 3 am. Carbs, fat and dessert! whereas those who eat a well balanced healthy meal end up getting a good night's rest since their body isn't short of food aka energy deprived!
Lethargic lump vs energizer bunny:
After you skip some meals, your body is really low on energy so it uses stored fat as a replacement ie muscles. You'll notice your muscles slowly start to fade away to compensate for the lack of energy in your body. Eventually you won't have the energy to do anything, not even eat (not as good as it sounds!). Actually no energy and no muscle might just make you fat and lazy. If you decide to get off your lazy lump and cook breakfast, you will actually help kick start your body into fat burning mode! also you'll have the energy to exercise which definitely provides better results than starving.

What is nadi pariksha (ayurvedic pulse
This is the most powerful diagnostic tool for
Understanding the cause of any ailment or
Disease in the human body. It is a part of our
Vedic lineage and is passed on from guru to the
Disciple depending on the spiritual evolution of the
How is the diagnosis done
In the normal course of our visit to a doctor, we
Specify the ailments we feel we are suffering
From. Based on this preliminary information, the
Doctor checks us up and if necessary,
Recommends us to undergo further tests to
Collaborate his understanding with what we have
Told him. He thus forms an understanding of the
On the contrary, during the nadi pariksha, a
Person need not have to specify his/her problems
In advance. The nadi vidwan is not supposed to
Know the details in advance as he should not get
Influenced by the patient's symptoms. Though
The symptoms reveal the disease process, it is
The cause of the prevailing or persisting
Symptoms that are more important. Each cell in
Our body possesses its own intelligence. It is the
Communication of this intelligence in the form of
Vibrations that is studied in nadi pariksha. Nadi
Pariksha understands the vibratory frequency of
The pulse at various levels on the radial artery.
Subtle vibrations are read at seven different levels
Vertically downward that help in ascertaining
Various functions in the body. The pulse, when
Examined, reveals both physical and mental
Characteristics of the pulse. This is interpreted in
The form of symptoms along with their prognosis
Which helps in understanding the cause. Thus,
Nadi pariksha forms the basis for addressing any
Ailment in an individual.
The accuracy of the pulse reading depends on the
Intuitive awareness of the individual and also the
Ability to understand and interpret the subtlety of
Vibrations. This sensitive awareness determines
The success of nadi pariksha.
The 5 elements or the 'panchamahabhutas' are
Ether, air, fire, water and earth. The 3 doshas or
Humors of vata, pitta, and kapha come as a
Combination of these 5 elements.
Ether + air = vata (mobility)
Fire +water = pitta (heat)
Water + earth = kapha (viscosity)
Any imbalance in the doshas will bring forth an
Ailment that will subsequently lead to a disease
Process. Each of these doshas have their
Physical, mental, emotional and physiological
What is revealed during the nadi
Every aspect of the human organism, the body,
Mind etc. Is understood during the pulse
Apart from understanding the cause of the
Current ailments, the diagnosis tracks the disease
Back to its origin. Even subtler levels of causal
Factors like emotional issues or specific thought
Patterns of the individual, that manifest into
Physical ailments subsequently are understood.
Nadi pariksha is undertaken to understand the
Following aspects in an individual:
Helps to ascertain one's original constitution at
The time of conception (prakruti). This forms the
Basis of deciding the basis and structure of the
Individualized healing process.
Helps to understand one's current constitution
As against the original constitution (vikruti).
The diagnosis ascertains the deviation that the
Body and mind have taken as compared to its
Original constitution. Also, it enables one to
Understand the prognosis of ailments that have
Arisen during this transition from prakruti to
Nadi pariksha successfully tracks down the
Altered state of the mind. This is very important
As the science of ayurveda believes that a major
Part of human ailments are psychosomatic in
Nature. This is so because the only way the mind
Can express itself is through the body. Therefore,
The body works to a very large
Extent according to the dictates of the mind.
The analysis at the doshas, the subtle entities of
The psycho and physiological body. Any alteration in
The doshas can lead to understanding of the
Disease process. The doshas like vata, pitta
Kapha and their sub units help in understanding:
The movement of energies and the working of the
Nervous system, circulation as defined by the
Pulsation of the heart, and the movement of
Nutrition to various tissues in the body.
The metabolic process and the process of bio-
Transformation in the body, which governs the
Activities of digestion, absorption and assimilation
The assimilating and binding functions through
The help of bodily fluids which includes the
Proper and healthy formation of muscles, bones,
Ligaments and tendons etc.
The study of the health of various types of tissues
In the body like plasma, blood, muscle, marrow,
Bone, nerve, and reproduction.
The health of the chakras or the subtle energy
Wheels in the body that corresponds to the glands
In the physical body is ascertained. Chakras
Relate to and control certain physiological
Processes in the body.
Subsequent to doing the nadi pariksha, other
Forms of examination are taken up. This is done
To cross-examine the correctness of the pulse
Diagnosis. These various methods are highlighted
Nails - the shape and size of nails reveal the
Type of constitution a person belongs to. For
Example, small size nails with serrated edges
(basically bitten by a person due to anxiety or
Nervousness signifies a vata nail. Pitta nails are
Slightly larger in size with a slight curvature in the
Middle that resembles a semi 'c' shape. These
Nails, when pressed at the top, will reveal a slight
Yellow tinge in the center. A kapha nail is usually
Large in size. These nails normally will be whitish
In colour. The surface of the nail is usually large.
Indications: vata nails have vertical lines that
Look like deep serrations or ridges. Pitta nails,
Apart from having vertical ridges (not always
Necessary) can also have reddish lines along
These ridges starting from the bottom of the nail
Running towards the top. Kapha nails may have a
Larger curvature in the center owing to the larger
Tongue - the tongue reveals all the organs of
The body and particularly reveals the aspects of
Digestion and assimilation of food. It reveals the
Kind of digestive disorders and which of the 3
Doshas were responsible or are in a state of
Imbalance. The type of ailment is also revealed.
Indications: vata when aggravated shows a
Cracked and rough tongue. Pitta when aggravated

Physiological problems present in other parts of
The body but this is a very lengthy subject and
Cannot be discussed in detail here.

Nature of the person's original constitution. Also
On examination, the eyes reveal what is the

Also reveals the nature of symptoms present in
The body and the cause.
