Dangers Of Google Search Health Conditions

In Health on November 24, 2014 at 11:41

Recently I came across two instances where Google search becomes dangerous.

 

In one instance, a Girl of about, settled in the US, was eating Dumpling in a Restaurant with her colleagues.

 

The dish was quite hot.

TMJ condition

 

While engaged in conversation with her friends, shed did not notice it was hot and popped it her mouth.

 

It was so hot that as a reflex action swallowed it instead of spitting it out.

 

The piece got stuck in her throat, she could not speak,swallow, her face turned bluish and she could not breathe.

 

People around her did not notice it, but some one near by noticed it and gave her a slap in her back and she swallowed it.

 

Otherwise she would have choked herself to death.

 

Air Marshall Mukherjee of Indian Air force died this way aboard an aircraft this way.

 

But this post is not about the dangers of eating with out some basic precautions, while engaged in conversation.

 

( Hinduism forbids speech/conversion while eating).

 

The girl being educated a web addict searched Google for her condition, symptoms.

 

She found a lot of cases where the writers have expressed their problems of not being able to touch food for months because of Fear.

 

The girl got scared and abstained from eating for a week, when some one told her harshly to eat and ate normally.

 

In another instance, a girl searched Google for pain in the cheek, Jaws and got landed with people writing about symptoms of TMJ, where some one has written that  she has the condition for twenty years, in incurable pain and had been under Streiod(?) medication , which has complicated the issues by adding Insomnia to the list.

 

And this girl has started doing the rounds with the doctors , starting from Dentist,ENT specialist, Neurologist,Neurosurgeon and took FBC ( Full Blood Count) Test,urine Culture, Sputum and Stools.

 

All the parameters were normal.

 

The girl started imagining she has some disease hat would stay with her for Life and she would lose her sanity!

 

She did not sleep for two days, not more than 5 Hours a day.

 

She now imagines she has Insomnia and wanted to meet with a Psychiatric Counselor.

 

Having studied Psychology and known what this is about I forbid her.

 

I scolded her very rudely , counseled her and she is alright now.

 

Lessons.

 

1.Medicine is an evolving Science, if not exact.

 

Doctors proceed from Symptoms to disease and not the other way around.

 

One symptom may be indicative of any disease, some of them serious, some worth ignoring.

 

By trial and error or experience or both, Doctors diagnose.

 

It is foolish to replace a Doctor with Internet search.

 

Still worse is to reading fro among the first twenty or so results in Google search.

 

I find people normally taking the first two or three results of Google search as Gospel.

 

Nothing can be more wrong.

 

Authentic information need not appear in the first results.

 

The first page search results are determined not by so much by the  correctness of the information  but by keywords, the search term used, and then the number of times the article has been read.

 

If the initial query has been incorrect, the site has used the correct key words though wrong information, the results will appear in the first twenty results.

 

Therefore the first results in Google search need not be correct.

 

Again unless you know the fundamentals of medicine do not read internet, whatever the site says it is.

 

And remember our Body is the best system in the world to rectify itself.

 

Do not brood over illnesses, consult a Doctor , have faith in him and follow his advice.

 

Take tie in finding out a general physician who does not prescribe you medicine at the drop of a hat, or who sends you for a lot of tests even for a small thing.

 

And stick with him.

 

Such a doctor need not be expensive.

 

I go to a doctor who is at least 50 years old, who checks me up physically, allows my body to heal without resorting to heavy dosage and one who is cal and not in a hurry.

 

 

 

 

 

Cold Fever Stomach Illness in Children Safe Sure Remedies

In Health on November 23, 2014 at 07:55

I have four grand children from 90 days to six years .

 

I have found that even for a slight indisposition of the children, they tend to rush immediately to Pediatrician  and the funniest part is that the child has to get an appointment, some time after seven or eight hours of the illness being reported,

 

The problem with infants , children is that some times the child,infant can not be left unattended for illness for such long periods, especially if they have high fever or diarrhea.

 

Child with Cold.jpg

Child with Cold.

 

Immediate action has to be taken.

 

The Allopathy system treats symptoms and most of the medicines, including the anti biotics have guaranteed side effects, while the cure is not assured.

 

For cough, medicine is prescribed to  suppress cough and anti biotics which are heavy are prescribed.

 

While the former gives one feeling of the illness is cured, the latter leaves problems, at least in respect of bowel movements.

 

Sere the Siddha medicine solves the problem.

 

These medicines do not have any side effects , they  are natural foods and are available at  Indian Homes.

 

For Colic(Stomach ache), Constipation.

 

Give a cup of warm milk before bedtime with one teaspoon of ghee added to it.

Provide a natural laxative foods such as soaked raisins or dates, honey, bran, sesame seeds, mango, papaya, grapes, and fresh figs.

Inculcate proper eating habits and food combining when possible, sufficient water intake, high quality oils, and providing plenty of high fiber foods can be helpful in the prevention of constipation.

In the case of infants, the mother can apply a small amount of castor oil to her nipple before breastfeeding.

For babies with intestinal colic, mix equal parts of Cumin, Fennel, and Coriander powder and add 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of this mixture to a cup of hot water, let it steep for 15 to 20 minutes, then strain well.

The mother can also drink it to reduce the qualities of vata in her breast milk.

In the case of infants, it is useful to administer the tea with a baby medicine dropper, available in most baby supply sections, and dilute it a little, if needed, to make it more palatable

 

For Colds, Fever.

Cold.

Yashtimadhu (Licorice root) and a little raw honey it helps liquefy and expectorate phlegm.

 

Make a Paste of the root, about half a teaspoon, ix it with Honey and give the child, till the cough subsides.

 

Or take a Nutmeg, Jathikkai, make a paste, small quantity of paste, by rubbing it out with a little quantity of water.apply this mixture on both the sides of the nose.

 

Running nose will stop immediately.

 

For chest congestion or restricted breathing.

Warm  sesame oil, or ghee with a pinch of rock or black salt, can be massaged onto the chest followed by a eucalyptus steam inhalation. Tulsi (Holy basil) works wonders for soothing coughs, decongesting the lungs and sinuses, as well as lowering a fever by promoting sweating. Tulsi tea can be prepared by adding1 teaspoon of Tulsi powder to 1 cup of hot water. This can also be given before bedtime to break a fever when nothing else works.

 

Fever.

A remarkable home remedy for lowering fever consists in rubbing fresh onion juice to the child’s navel region while applying a cool cloth to the forehead to protect the brain.

 

One can apply a paste made of turmeric powder and war gingelly oil on the forehead.

 

For Rashes,including Diaper rashes.

 

One of the best remedies for this is to add 1 to 2 teaspoons of Kumari (Aloe vera) juice into the baby’s drinking water.

 

For Deworming and clearing Parasites.

 

A simple household remedy for worms like thread, pin, and round worms, is to take 3 to 5 drops of fresh onion juice diluted in one teaspoon of water 3 times daily.

 

Two or three tender leaves of Neem tree may be made and given to the child, either directly or with warm water.

Surya is worshiped for eye care.

There is another Mantra from the Vedas, the Chakshuopanishad to improve eyesight and to get relief from eye related ailments.

Chakshushopanishad is from the Krishna Yajur Veda.

Meaning.

1. Ahirbughnya is Rushi of this Chaakshushi Vidya. Gayatri is Chanda, and God Surya is devata of this Chaakshushi Vidya. I am reciting this vidya for removing my eye disease.
2 Om! O! God Surya let your luster, light be settled in my eyes. Please protect me. Protect me. Please remove my eye disease immediately. Remove my eye disease immediately.
3 Please show me your gold like luster. Please show me light which shows your power. Please make something and see that I will not become blind. Please think about my welfare. Bestow welfare to me.
4 I had committed sins in my previous births which are resulting in my eye disease. Please make me free from this bad effect of my sins and remove all my sins of my earlier births also.
5 Om! I bow God Bhaskara (surya) since you are the cause of creating light, luster in my (everybody’s) eyes. Om! Very kind God Surya, you are nectar (Amrut). Hence I bow to you. I bow to god Surya.
6 Om! I bow to him (God Surya) who is Luster of my eyes. I bow to him (God Surya) who is always sporting (travelling) in the sky. I bow to him (God Surya) who is behind everybody’s inspiration of (Rajo guna) doing something useful. I bow to him (God Surya) who has given shelter to darkness (tamo guna).
7 O! God Surya, please lead me to the truth from non truth. O! God Surya, please raise me to light from darkness. O! God Surya, please make me immortal from mortal.
8 God Surya is representing heat and He is very pious and pure. His luster and light is very powerful and beyond comparison. There is nobody as lustrous as God Surya. Anybody reciting this chakshushopanishad every day becomes free from eye diseases. He will never be a victim of eye disease. Not only has that but nobody from his family become blind. Anybody who teaches (donates) this chakshushi vidya to eight Brahmins, and then this vidya becomes very powerful to him.
Thus here completes this Krishna Yajurvediya chakshushopanishad.

Hinduism Toilet Rules And Rituals Manusmriti

In Hinduism on October 20, 2014 at 07:29

The Mansusmriti,Hinduism, one of the Books on Code of Conduct covers a wide range of subjects, from Naminf the individual to even Toilet practices.

 

Toilet Rules, Manusmriti.

 

 

A Brahmana who desires energy must not look at a woman who applies collyrium to her eyes, has anointed or uncovered herself or brings forth a child.

Let him not eat, dressed with one garment only; let him not bathe naked; let him not void urine on a road, on ashes, or in a cow-pen.

Nor on ploughed land, in water, on an altar of bricks, on a mountain, on the ruins of a temple, nor ever on an ant-hill.

Nor in holes inhabited by living creatures, nor while he walks or stands, nor on reaching the bank of a river, nor on the top of a mountain.

Let him never void faeces or urine, facing the wind, or a fire, or looking towards a Brahmana, the sun, water, or cows.

He may ease himself, having covered the ground with sticks, clods, leaves, grass, and the like, restraining his speech, keeping himself pure, wrapping up his body, and covering his head.

Let him void faeces and urine, in the daytime turning to the north, at night turning towards the south, during the two twilights in the same position as by day.

In the shade or in darkness a Brahmana may, both by day and night, do it, assuming any position he pleases; likewise when his life is in danger.

The intellect of a man who voids urine against a fire, the sun, the moon, in water, against a Brahmana, a cow, or the wind, perishes.

Let him not blow a fire with his mouth; let him not look at a naked woman; let him not throw any impure substance into the fire, and let him not warm his feet at it.

Let him not place fire under a bed or the like; nor step over it, nor place it when he sleeps at the foot-end of his bed; let him not torment living creatures.

Let him not eat, nor travel, nor sleep during the twilight; let him not scratch the ground; let him not take off his garland.

Let him not throw urine or faeces into the water, nor saliva, nor clothes defiled by impure substances, nor any other impurity, nor blood, nor poisonous things.

Manusmṛti Chapter 4, verses 44-56

 

Far from his dwelling let him remove urine and ordure, far let him remove the water used for washing his feet, and far the remnants of food and the water from his bath.

Early in the morning only let him void faeces, decorate his body, bathe, clean his teeth, apply collyrium to his eyes, and worship the gods.

Manusmṛti Chapter 4, verses 151-152.

 

All those cavities of the body which lie above the navel are pure, but those which are below the navel are impure, as well as excretions that fall from the body.

Flies, drops of water, a shadow, a cow, a horse, the rays of the sun, dust, earth, the wind, and fire one must know to be pure to the touch.

In order to clean the organs by which urine and faeces are ejected, earth and water must be used, as they may be required, likewise in removing the remaining ones among twelve impurities of the body.

Oily exudation, semen, blood, the fatty substance of the brain, urine, faeces, the mucus of the nose, ear-wax, phlegm, tears, the rheum of the eyes, and sweat are the twelve impurities of human bodies.

He who desires to be pure must clean the penis by one application of earth and then water, the anus by applying earth and then water three times, the left hand alone by applying it ten times, and both hands by applying it seven times.

Such is the purification ordained for householders; it shall be double for students, treble for hermits, but quadruple for ascetics.

When he has voided urine or faeces, let him, after sipping water, sprinkle the cavities, likewise when he is going to recite the Veda, and always before he takes food.

Manusmṛti Chapter 4, verses 132-138
