    Depression~~~

    The dictionary describes depression as a condition of general emotional dejection and withdrawal, sadness greater and more prolonged than that warranted by any objective reason.

    Life is full of twists and turns, some pleasant others not so pleasant or at times dreadful. No one is devoid of problems in their lives. Everyone has their own personal set of problems.

    Even the people who have a smile constantly on their face have problems. The only difference is they know how to tackle the problems of their life and smile about the fact that they can overcome those problems, similar to Mother Nature.

    Some one compared the changes in Mother Nature with depression so aptly. He said each year nature sheds all its charm and the vibrant colors but then again it blooms to its optimum capacity to smile and teach us the most valuable lesson of life.

    Seasonal changes are the main reason for depression in nature. Change is inevitable, be it in nature or in our life, but what are the changes is subjective. They may differ person to person, and so will the approach towards them.

    Getting into depression is a normal phenomenon, but letting it over take us completely is not the best thing. There are no specific rules or a concepts to deal with it, whatever way one feels is the best way, one should adopt to tackle it.

    Here are some really easy ways to tackle problem~~~


    1~Lead your life on the basis of fundamental values of what is right and what's wrong.


    2~Avoid hurting others and yourself too.


    3~It's easier to change and adapt ourselves to new circumstances, than to expect vice a versa.


    4~Don't make any decisions when angry or sad.


    5~Fight it. If you can't, then get help.


    6~Enjoy nature; it's free.


    7~Spend time with our own self to introspect and retrospect daily.


    8~Yell, scream or punch the bag if you feel like doing it.


    9~Be joyful genuinely, and not just put up the mask of happiness.


    10~Last, but not the least, do not underestimate the power of Prayers.

    MP3 players cause hearing loss at an early age~~~

    Loud music and long periods of listening wear the hearing down at an early age. A test showed that 45 out of 358 students at a prep school in the United States had significant hearing loss. The common denominator was that they all listened to MP3 players.

    Students at Harvest Preparatory Academy in Ohio probably consider turning the volume down after a test revealed that 12.5 percent of the entire student body had significant hearing loss.

    "This is terrible. This means that there is speech these kids are unable to discern, that they're probably having a hard time listening in class", said Lin Hamill, a health care educator of Audibility Hearing Care, who conducted the test.

    Youngsters being unable to hear teachers in a classroom is obviously a major problem. Additionally, straining to hear can cause fatigue and headaches, making it harder to concentrate.

    These are serious consequences and as the youngsters grow older their hearing will only worsen due to the normal decay of sensory hair cells in the inner ear over time.

    More and more sound~~~

    Hearing professionals and medical advisers have been warning against headphones and earbuds for years, but parents and kids have largely ignored the problem.

    "The issue," pointed out Wayne Chiavacci, a local paediatrician, "is more urgent than ever as manufacturers keep coming out with new things for kids to stick in their ears."

    Examples include hands-free solutions for telephones and the merger of phone and MP3player. Many young ears are loaded with sound most of the time.

    THANKS Fatima Ji....

    Womens Health Tips~~~

    Daily calcium~~
    To get the recommended 1,000-1,200 mg of calcium per day, women should consume three servings of milk products (1portion=1 cup/250 mL of milk, 6 oz/175 g of yogurt or 1 oz/45 g of cheese). If you don’t like milk products, you can replace each of the three portions with a 300 mg calcium supplement and try other sources of calcium.

    Sleep stealers~~
    Beware of factors that rob you of a good night’s sleep: Arguments before bedtime, caffeine, sugar, vitamin C and intense exercise.To relax, take a hot bath, drink a cup of herbal tea or a glass of milk and read. A drop of lavender or orange oil on your sheets can also help bring sweet slumber.

    Growing bones~~
    Gardening is a great exercise for building bone density because of all the bending and lifting. Taking care of your flowers just once a week can reduce the risk of osteoporosis.

    Calcium intake and age~~
    A woman in her 20s needs about 1,000 mg of calcium a day. By her 30's a woman’s bones stop growing, so it’s wise to build a reserve of bone and calcium that’ll be needed in the future. Exercise can help. Women in their 40's can start to lose bone density. Dairy foods, leafy green vegetables, fish, and even non-dairy products that are fortified with calcium help to boost calcium-intake.

    Cut the caffeine~~
    Your chances of developing an irritated bladder can double if you’re drinking more than four cups of caffeinated coffee each day. Caffeine in tea, chocolate and cola are also irritants.

    "TIPS TO KEEP TEETH WHITE, NATURALLY"~~~

    There are many effective methods of teeth whitening available, but
    some come with heavy price tags. Here are some steps you can take at home to whiten teeth naturally without breaking the bank.


    Things You Need~~

    ~Straw
    ~Toothbrush
    ~Lemon Juice
    ~Salt
    ~Baking soda
    ~Hydrogen peroxide
    ~Strawberries

    Step 1~~

    Limit your consumption of drinks that stain tooth enamel. A few of these include coffee, tea and red wine. If you simply can't cut back on these beverages, consider drinking them though a straw to limit the amount of liquid that actually comes in contact with teeth.

    Step 2~~

    Brush your teeth immediately after eating, especially if eating foods that stain easily, such as berries.

    Step 3~~

    Rub raw strawberries on your teeth, preferably pureed. There is an enzyme in strawberries that acts as a whitening agent. You'll want to brush and rinse after applying the strawberries to remove the natural sugars and acids they may leave behind.

    Step 4~~

    Eat crunchy foods that require a lot of chewing such as carrots, celery, broccoli and apples. These foods are abrasive and will remove built up plaque, which dulls the appearance of teeth.

    Step 5~~

    Dip your toothbrush directly into baking soda and brush. The results are worth the lousy taste.

    Step 6~~

    Combine lemon juice and one teaspoon of salt to make a paste-like substance. Brush your teeth and rinse. Again, not so pleasant on the palate, but your teeth will thank you.

    Step 7~~

    Use hydrogen peroxide to brush your teeth. Dip your toothbrush into a small capful of the peroxide and brush as you would with regular toothpaste, being careful not to swallow. Rinse with water.


    ~~Tips~~

    ~~Consider using one of the several whitening toothpastes on the market that have all-natural ingredients.
    ~~Brushing after every meal and flossing regularly are the first steps  in maintaining a healthy smile.

    For a healthy body and mind take a walk~~~

    Research done by the University of Illinois states that walking not just provides good physical health but also improves your mind and boosts your brain power. A study conducted on people said that those who walked regularly at least three times a week for six months performed better than those who did stretching or toning exercises.

    In rural India, walking is not at all a problem as short distances are mostly covered on foot and the spacing out of houses insures some amount of walking, but the cities of India and the flat system curb any form of walking. But take heart! Just because you live in a flat in the city does not mean you can not find ways to take regular walks to the nearest park. One can start making a habit of walking down short distances rather than taking out the vehicle. With ingenuity, there can be no limits to ways to walk that bit to keep oneself fit.

    Summer's and Ur Skin~~~

    Your skin is your shield against the environment. When excessive temperatures threaten to overheat your body, your skin protects the delicate inner organs and maintains a steady body temperature. However, in the process it bears the brunt of the heat and gets sunburned, tanned, wrinkled, blemished or damaged. Learning to protect your skin in summer is thus very important!

    ~ Hygiene~~

    Half of summer-related skin infections would not occur if people maintained proper hygiene. Shower at least twice a day to prevent build-up of dried salts and sweat-induced bacterial growth. Do not over-use anti-perspirants as they not only clog pores but inhibit sweating, which is necessary to cool the body and eliminate toxins. Instead, use loose talc to absorb excess secreted sweat. Never spray deos on broken, irritated or sunburned skin. If you see a ringworm infection (circular red patches on the body that itch intensely), yeast infections (whitish macerated itchy skin, especially in boldily folds like the groin) or athlete's foot, consult your dermatologist immediately.

    ~ Sun protection~~

    Second to moisturiser, sunscreens are the most ubiquitously used skincare product -- and also the most incorrectly used! Each brand contains different ingredients -- some are UBA-blocking agents, some for UVB, some are chemical sunblocks and others (like zinc oxide or titanium dioxide) are physical sunblocks ie they form an opaque barrier against the penetration of UV rays.

    Take help from a qualified skin specialist to choose the right sunscreen for you. Apply at least 10 to 15 minutes before sun exposure and always use generously. Being stingy with your sunscreen can drop its effectiveness by half! A 5-rupee coin sized blob is enough for your face; double that quantity for each arm. Re-apply every 2-3 hours. For swimming or the beach, use a waterproof sunblock and reapply each time you towel yourself dry. Sunscreens can protect from sunburns, blemishes and skin aging due to UV exposure, but do not completely prevent a tan. Physically blocking the sun with an umbrella, a wide-rimmed hat and sunglasses will prevent tanning.

    ~ Antioxidants (the internal sun protectors)~~

    Oxidative damage by ultraviolet radiation can be mitigated by adequate intake of antioxidants. You can take them naturally in fresh salads and brightly-coloured fruit. Mangoes in this season and papayas are rich in carotene, sweet limes and lemons are packed with Vitamin C and iced tea is rich in flavonoids -- all excellent sources of antioxidants. If 'rabbit food' is not your thing, ask your doctor to prescribe some antioxidant capsules for you.

    ~ Moisturisers~~

    Sweating makes us forget just how much we need moisturisers. Heat saps moisture from the skin, leaving it dry and rough. You must use light, water-based moisturisers instead of oily ones each time you wash your face. Drink two-three litres of water daily to stay well-hydrated.

    ~ Makeup rules for summer~~

    Keep it light! Layered foundation not only drips with sweat and looks patchy, but clogs the pores and aggravates pimples. Go for sheer loose powders and powder bronzers instead.

    ~ Emergency solutions~~

    Apply icepacks and a layer of chilled calamine lotion (Markal, Calosoft etc) for an acute sunburn. If really painful, you can also mix in some Fluticasone cream (Flutivate cream). For heat rashes (prickly heat) again calamine lotion works well. Take some Vitamin C as well -- a 500 mg tablet daily for 10 days or so -- and wear loose clothing. If the conditions persist, consult a dermatologist. Tan removing treatments are also available nowadays. Mild tans can, however, be remedied at home with cucumber slices or tomato pulp applied for 10 minutes daily. Never try to bleach a sunburned area of the skin or you'll end up causing irritation.

    Follow these simple rules and your skin will remain your best asset this summer!

    Eat Right~~Stay Young~~

    Eat Right~~Stay Young  Put away the creams, lotions… and the other magic potions. Make way for a healthy, natural, and simple way to staying as young as possible.

    Anti-ageing Foods ~~~
    The pungent ginger aids the digestive and circulatory systems. It tightens body tissue and helps get rid of rheumatic aches and pains.

    Ginger also eases motion sickness while ginger tea helps soothe coughs.

    A clove of garlic a day prevents cancer, heart disease and high blood pressure. It also lowers cholesterol and prevents the formation of blood clots. Garlic has an antibacterial affect that fights off infection.

    Watermelon is a good source of vitamins A, B and a high source of Vitamin C. Its seeds contain Vitamin E, zinc and essential fats. It also provides potassium and fibre. All of this protects and preserves the skin and fights ageing.

    Watermelon enhances heart health, protects against prostrate cancer and keeps weight in check because of its high water content.

    Strawberries contain iron, calcium and vitamin A. These are traditionally used to soothe sunburns and moisturise the skin. They also help kill cancer cells. Strawberries are also used in creams, face masks and feet masks.

    Papaya contains Vitamins A, C and E. The enzymes in papaya also have rejuvenation qualities and delays aging. It also helps in easing digestion. The enzymes in papaya soften and polish skin naturally and are often used in face packs too.

    DRINK WATER ON EMPTY STOMACH~~~


    It is popular in Japan today to drink water immediately after waking up
    every morning. Furthermore, scientific tests have proven a its value. We
    publish below a description of use of water for our readers. For old and
    serious diseases as well as modern illnesses the water treatment had been
    found successful by a Japanese medical society as a 100% cure for the
    following diseases:

    Headache, body ache, heart system, arthritis, fast heart beat, epilepsy,
    excess fatness, bronchitis asthma, TB, meningitis, kidney and urine
    diseases, vomiting, gastritis, diarrhea, piles, diabetes, constipation, all
    eye diseases, womb, cancer and menstrual disorders, ear nose and throat
    diseases.



    METHOD OF TREATMENT~~~

    1. As you wake up in the morning before brushing teeth, drink 4 x 160ml
    glasses of water
    2. Brush and clean the mouth but do not eat or drink anything for 45
    minutes
    3. After 45 minutes you may eat and drink as normal.
    4. After 15 minutes of breakfast, lunch and dinner do not eat or drink
    anything for 2 hours
    5. Those who are old or sick and are unable to drink 4 glasses of water at
    the beginning may commence by taking little water and gradually increase it
    to 4 glasses per day.
    6. The above method of treatment will cure diseases of the sick and others
    can enjoy a healthy life.

    The following list gives the number of days of treatment required to
    cure/control/reduce main diseases:

    1. High Blood Pressure - 30 days

    2. Gastric - 10 days

    3. Diabetes - 30 days

    4. Constipation - 10 days

    5. Cancer - 180 days

    6. TB - 90 days

    7. Arthritis patients should follow the above treatment only for 3 days in
      the 1st week, and from 2nd week onwards - daily.

    This treatment method has no side effects, however at the commencement of
    treatment you may have to urinate a few times. It is better if we continue
    this and make this procedure as a routine work in our life. Drink Water and
    Stay healthy and Active. This makes sense.... The Chinese and Japanese
    drink hot tea with their meals .not cold water. maybe it is time we adopt
    their drinking habit while eating!!! Nothing to lose, everything to gain...
    For those who like to drink cold water, this article is applicable to you.

    It is nice to have a cup of cold drink after a meal. However, the cold
    water will solidify the oily stuff that you have just consumed. It will
    slow down the digestion.
    Once this "sludge" reacts with the acid, it will break down and be absorbed
    by the intestine faster than the solid food. It will line the intestine.
    Very soon, this will turn into fats and lead to cancer. It is best to drink
    hot soup or warm water after a meal. A serious note about heart attacks:
    Women should know that not every heart
    attack symptom is going to be the left arm hurting. Be aware of intense
    pain in the jaw line. You may never have the first chest pain during the
    course of a heart
    attack. Nausea and intense sweating are also common symptoms. 60% of people
    who have a heart attack while they are asleep do not wake up. Pain in the
    jaw can wake you from a sound sleep. Let's be careful and be aware. The
    more we know, the better chance we could survive...

    Jai Sai Ram~~~

    10 Steps for Improving Your Brain Health~~

    "There is a lot we can do to keep our brains healthy and potentially prevent or lessen the cognitive decline that often comes with aging," Daniel Perry, executive director of the nonprofit Alliance for Aging Research, said in a prepared statement. "We are encouraging people to take steps to improve brain health as part of their overall fitness regimen for the New Year."

    The Alliance for Aging Research recommends these 10 steps for improving your brain health.

    ~~Eat a Brain-Healthy Diet. A diet rich in omega-3 fatty acids (commonly found in fish), protein, antioxidants, fruits and vegetables and vitamin B; low in trans fats; and with an appropriate level of carbohydrates will help keep your brain healthy.

    ~~Stay Mentally Active. Activities such as learning a new skill or language, working on crossword puzzles, taking classes, and learning how to dance can help challenge and maintain your mental functioning.

    ~~Exercise Regularly. Exercising often can increase circulation, improve coordination, and help prevent conditions that increase the risk of dementia such as heart disease, stroke and diabetes.

    ~~Stay Social. Spending time with friends, volunteering, and traveling can keep your mind active and healthy.

    ~~Get Plenty of Sleep. Not getting enough sleep can have a negative impact on brain health.

    ~~Manage Stress. Participating in yoga, spending time with friends, or doing other stress-relieving activities can help preserve your ability to remember and learn.

    ~~Prevent Brain Injury. Wearing protective head gear and seat belts can help you avoid head injury, which has been associated with an increased risk of dementia.

    ~~Control Other Health Conditions. Maintaining a healthy weight, exercising, eating a well-balanced and nutritious diet, and controlling stress can help reduce your risk of diseases that affect your brain, including diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure and hypertension.

    ~~Avoid Unhealthy Habits. Smoking, heavy drinking and use of recreational drugs can increase the risk of dementia and cognitive decline.

    ~~Consider Your Genes. If your family history puts you at risk for developing dementia, work with your doctor to find ways to maintain your brain health to help avoid or slow the progression of cognitive decline.

    Jai Sai Ram~~~

    What is Heartburn??

    Despite its name, heartburn doesn't affect the heart. Heartburn is a burning feeling in the lower chest, along with a sour or bitter taste in the throat and mouth. It usually occurs after eating a big meal or while lying down. The feeling can last for a few minutes or a few hours.

    What causes heartburn??

    When you eat, food passes from your mouth down a tube (about 10 inches long in most people) called the esophagus. To enter the stomach, the food must pass through an opening between the esophagus and stomach. This opening acts like a gate to allow food to pass into the stomach.

    Usually, this opening closes as soon as food passes through. But if it doesn't close all the way, acid from your stomach can get through the opening and into your esophagus. This is called reflux. Stomach acid can irritate the esophagus and cause heartburn.

    Tips on preventing heartburn~~~

    ~ Place 6- to 9-inch blocks under the legs at the head of your bed to raise it.

    ~ Lose weight if you're overweight.
    ~ Don't overeat.
    ~ Eat high-protein, low-fat meals.
    ~ Avoid tight clothes and tight belts.
    ~ Avoid foods and other things that give you heartburn

    Call your doctor if~~

    ~ You have trouble swallowing or pain when swallowing.
    ~ You're vomiting blood.
    ~ Your stools are bloody or black.
    ~ You're short of breath.
    ~ You're dizzy or lightheaded.
    ~ You have pain going into your neck and shoulder.
    ~ You break out in a sweat when you have pain in your chest.
    ~ You have heartburn often (more than 3 times a week) for more than 2 weeks.

    Be Your Fragrant Best This Summer~~~

    Summer is here bringing with it a host of sweaty problems. Our expert reveals a few secrets that will leave you cool, fresh and fragrant.

    Hot humid summers make you long for something cool and fragrant. During this time, one is always searching for some magic solution to the perennial problem of looking, feeling and smelling fresh.

    Perspiration: The double-edged sword~~

    Perspiration is the main menace during summer. It saps our energy, detracts the cool feeling and, worst of all, it leads to body odour. But perspiration is also the body's natural way of cooling. Each one of us have sweat glands, distributed all over the body. When these glands excrete sweat, it mixes with surface bacteria, decomposes and emits body odour.

    Take a cold shower~~

    Bath-time is a real pleasure during summer. It helps to keep away germs, dirt and body odour besides soothing and relaxing us. It not only refreshes but also revives us.

    All parts of the body must be washed well, specially the neck, armpits, genital area and feet. These are the areas where germs accumulate. Adding cologne, which has a cooling effect, to the bath water leaves the body fragrant.

    Deos and perfumes are the order of the day~~

    Deodorants, anti-perspirants, talcum powder and perfumes give temporary relief from body odour. Most deodorants are also anti-perspirants. A spray, rather than the roll-on deodorants may be more suitable in summer, but this is a matter of personal choice. However, be sure to choose a mild deodorant, as strong anti-perspirants can cause skin irritation. It is always better to try them out on a small skin area first. If the skin tingles or burns for more than a minute, you should not use it. Perspiration is a natural process and should not be blocked with strong anti-perspirants. Some people find the use of talcum powders quite adequate.

    A whiff of romance~~

    Fragrances are very much a part of grooming. They evoke romance and sensuality and are the most luxurious of aids we use for grooming. Perfumes put the finishing touch to grooming and help to add that extra something - whether it is femininity, sensuality or individuality. In fact, the market for perfumes is not only vast, but also very expensive.

    Nature has bestowed upon us the most wonderful fragrances. Imagine what a rose or jasmine would be like without their delightful fragrance. In fact, nature's perfumes are all distinct and different from each other. The fragrance of a rose can be identified even with closed eyes.

    A nostalgic journey~~

    During ancient times, aromas of plant products were actually used to treat psychosomatic and psychological problems, due to their effect on the nerves. Many of these were said to have a calming and soothing effect on the mind. Their sedative properties had none of the side effect of modern day drugs.
