DUODENAL SWITCH (A PUNCH AGAINST OBESITY)
Duodenal switch, one of the most complicated weight loss surgeries, is also known as vertical gastrectomy with duodenal switch, gastric reduction with duodenal switch, biliopancreatic diversion with duodenal switch, DS or BPD-DS. Duodenal switch packs a one -two punch against obesity.It does so, by combining two surgical techniques: restrictive and malabsorptive.The restrictive component involves reducing the size of the stomach.Your bariatric surgeon would divide the stomach vertically and remove more than 85% of it. The stomach that remains is shaped like a banana and can accomodate about 100 to 150 mls or 6 ounces.
Duodenal switch is a variation of another procedure, called biliopancreatic diversion.But the duodenal switch leaves a larger portion of the stomach intact including the pyloric valve, which regulates the release of stomach contents into the small intestine.As the name suggests, duodenal switch also keeps small part of the duodenum in the digestive system.Food mixes with stomach acids, then moves down to the duodenum, where they mix with bile from the gall bladder and digestive juices from the pancreas. Malabsorptive surgeries restrict the amount of calories and nutrients that the body absorbs.The malabsorptive component of duodenal switch surgery involves rearranging the small intestine to seperate the flow of food from the flow of bile and pancreatic juice.The food and the digestive juices interact only in the last 18 to 24 inches of the intestine, allowing malabsorption. Unlike the restrictive part of the surgery, the intestinal bypass part of the duodenal switch, is partially reversible, if the patient experiences malabsorptive complications.With the duodenal switch, you consume less food than normal, but it is still more than with other weight loss surgeries.Even this amount of food cannot be digested normally, so a large portion of the food passes undigested through the shortened intestine, thereby causing weight loss in the morbidly obese.This surgery is also done laparoscopically.

माता-पिता की परवरिश का बच्चों की सेहत पर असर
नई स्टडी से पता चला है कि माता-पिता की परवरिश का बच्चों की सेहत पर खास प्रभाव पड़ता हैं। माता-पिता का कठोर व्यवहार बच्चों के आलस्य का कारण बनता है।

हाल ही में 0 से 11 वर्ष तक के कैनेडियन बच्चों पर हुई रिसर्च से यह बात सामने आई है कि जो माता-पिता अपने बच्चो से प्यार से बात करके कोई भी फैसला लेते हैं, उनके बच्चे ज्यादा स्वस्थ और फुर्तीले होते हैं। जबकि जो माता-पिता अपने फैसले बिना किसी सलाह के अपने बच्चों पर थोपते हैं वे बच्चे काफी अकेलेपन महसूस करने लगते हैं और इसका नतीजा बच्चों में आलस्य और मोटापे के रूप में सामने आता है।

लीसा काकीनामी जो कि मैकगिल यूनिवर्सिटी की पोस्ट डॉक्टोरल एपिडेमियोलॉजिस्ट हैं, उनका कहना है कि अधिकतर माता-पिता सही परवरिश की ओर ध्यान नहीं देते हैं और वे इस बात को ज्यादा महत्व भी नहीं देते हैं। अगर बच्चो को संतुलित परवरिश दी जाए तो उन्हें मोटापे और आलस्य जैसी बीमरियों से बचाया जा सकता है।

इस शोध में एक सर्वे में कुछ माता-पिता से बात की और अलग-अलग परवरिश के तरीकों की लिस्ट बनाई और फिर बच्चों के बॉडी मास इंडेक्स (बीएमआई) प्रतिशत से इसका विश्लेषण किया। काकीनामी का कहना है कि घर के माहौल से भी बच्चों की सेहत एवं आदतों को आकार मिलता है।

फूड पॉइजनिंग-
क्या है फूड पॉइजनिंग-
शादी या किसी समारोह में या फिर बाहर ठेलों पर बिकने वाली कोई चीज खाने पर बच्चों में उल्टी, बुखार, कंपकंपी या लूज मोशन जैसा कोई लक्षण नजर आए, तो इसे फूड पॉइजनिंग कहते हैं। फर्क इतना है कि अपनी-अपनी रोग प्रतिरोधक क्षमता के अनुसार किसी में लक्षण अधिक तो किसी में कम नजर आते हैं।

क्या सावधानी बरतें -
अगर किसी डिब्बाबंद खाद्य पदार्थ का ढक्कन उभरा हुआ है, तो उसे ना खाएं। ढक्कन के उभरे होने का मतलब है कि उसमें गैस भर गई है और वह खराब हो गया है।

* फूले हुए टेट्रा पैक का जूस न पिएं। इसके फूलने से पता चलता है कि इसमें गैस भर गई है, भले ही इसकी एक्सपायरी डेट बाद की हो, पर इसे इस्तेमाल में न लाएं।

* शादी-ब्याह में जा रहे हैं, तो वहां सलाद जैसी चीजें खाने से परहेज करें। सलाद में इस्तेमाल में लाई जा रही सब्जियों का सही तरीके से साफ होना और फिर काटने वाले व्यक्ति के हाथों का धुला-साफ होना जरूरी है। इस तरह की कच्ची चीजें खाने से परहेज करें।
* दही और दूध की बनी हुई कोई भी चीज, जो उबली ना हो, न खाएं। खासतौर से ऐसी चीजें बच्चों को ना दें।

* दाल-सब्जी आदि जैसी चीजें, जो उबालकर बनाई जाती हैं, उन्हें खा सकते हैं।

* फूड पॉइजनिंग होने पर बच्चे को अस्पताल ले जाएं।

ट्रीटमेंट : वहां बच्चे को आईवी फ्लूइड्सल दिए जाते हैं।

SOME HOME REMEDIES
आंखों के नीचे काले धब्बे ( black spots below the eyes ) :-

आंखों के नीचे काले धब्बे होना आम समस्या है कम सोने, अधिक थकान होने, कमजोरी अथवा किसी बीमारी के कारण होते है । प्राय: नींद न आने की बीमारी के कारण होते हैं और उनकी आंखों पर काले धब्बे पड़ जाते है । नींद लेना स्वास्थ्य के लिये आवश्यक है । यदि आपको नींद नही आती, आप को थकावट रहती है तो रोज सुबह घर में ही एक्ससाइज करनी चाहिये ।

आंखों की चारों तरफ की त्वचा बड़ी नाजुक होती है । इसलिये सौन्दर्य प्रसाधन लगाते समय बड़ी सावधानी बरतनी चाहिये । सोने से पहले त्वचा को नमी देने वाली क्रीम या लोशन इस्तेमाल करनी चाहिये । रूई के फोहे को आंखों के इर्द-गिर्द लगाएं । आंखों के लिये बादाम क्रीम सबसे उपयुक्त होती है । इससे रंग भी साफ होता है और साथ ही त्वचा का पोषण होता है। कोई भी सौन्दर्य-प्रसाधन तत्व आंखों वाले क्षेत्र पर ज्यादा देर नहीं लगाना चाहिये । चेहरे पर लगाया जाने वाला लेप आंखों के आसपास नहीं लगाना चाहिये । आंखों पर खीरे का रस,आलू का रस तथा गुलाबजल को रूई के फोहे में भिगोकर आंखों पर रखना चाहिये ।

मुँहासों के सफेद व काले दाग का प्रभाव :-

सफेद मुहांसे से भी काले मुँहासों की तरह त्वचा में चिकनाई जम जाने के कारण होते है । इन काले और सफेद मुँहासों में अंतर यह है कि जहां की त्वचा मुलायम और चिकनी होती है वहां रोम छिद्रों में चिकनाई बाहर नहीं निकल पाती इसलिये अंदर ही अंदर वह पस के रूप में बाहर की तरफ उभर आती है । जो ऊपर की तरफ से सफेद तथा नीचे से काले मुँहासों की तरह दिखाई देती है । अधिक चिकनी त्वचा के लिये यह अधिक परेशानी पैदा करती है । इन्हें समाप्त करने के लिये बाजार में उपलब्ध सौन्दर्य प्रसाधन व कुछ घरेलू नुसख़े काम में लाये जा सकते है।
चेहरे को पानी से अच्छी तरह धोकर साफ तौलिये से पोंछ लें और फिर सल्फर लोशन लगाएं । इसके बाद गर्म पानी में तौलिया भिगोकर चेहरे को भाप दें। इस उपाय को करने से त्वचा के बंद छिद्र खुल जायेंगे तथा इसके साथ-साथ आप विटामिन बी. सी की गोलियों का सेवन भी करते रहें ।

AYURVEDIC MEDICINE AMRITADI KWATHA ALONG WITH PRANAYAMA FOUND USEFUL IN THE MANAGEMENT OF BRONCHIAL ASTHMA
Modern medicine is rapidly developing medications that provide instant relief from symptoms, but the hazards of beta agonists and complications of corticosteroids prompt the search for alternative modalities in the management of bronchial asthma.

The present research study evaluated easily available, inexpensive and non-controversial herbal drugs as well as

Pranayama in the management of bronchial asthma.
For this clinical study 60 patients have been divided into 3 groups. 1st Group was treated with trial drug and 2nd Group with standard drug. The 3rd Group was treated with trial drug and Pranayama. All the groups have equal number of patients -i.e. 20 each.

The short-listed patients were diagnosed on the basis of a detailed questionnaire including the history, clinical examination as well as laboratory investigations. The diagnosis was further confirmed using spirometer.

Diagnosis has been made according to bronchial reversibility test i.e. 15% increase in FEV1 after 15 minutes of two puffs of a adrenergic agonist. Subjective as well as objective parameters were adopted for assessing the response of trial drugs graded in to 0, 1, 2, and 3. Patients were advised to practice the anulom vilom pranayama BD, 10m.

After the study results were analysed and Group I & III showed significant improvement in clinical symptoms whereas Group III patients also showed marked improvement in PULMONARY FUNCTION TESTS (FEV1, FVC, PEFR).

It was observed that anulom vilom pranayama has a definite additive effect with standard drug therapy in the treatment of Tamak swasa (bronchial asthma) as shown by the subjective and objective assessment.

This research study was conducted by researchers of A & U Tibbia College, Karol Bagh, N. Delhi, India

In a brief conversation, a man asked a woman he was pursuing the question: “What kind of man are you looking for?”
She sat quietly for a moment before looking him in the eye & asking, ‘Do you really want to know?’ Reluctantly, he said,”Yes.”
She began to expound…
“As a woman in this day & age, I am in a position to ask a man what can you do for me that I can’t do for myself? I pay my own bills. I take care of my household without the help of any man…or woman for that matter. I am in the position to ask, ‘What can you bring to the table?’”
The man looked at her. Clearly he thought that she was referring to money.
She quickly corrected his thought & stated, “I am not referring to money. I need something more. I need a man who is striving for excellence in every aspect of life.” He sat back in his chair, folded his arms, & asked her to explain.
She said, “I need someone who is striving for excellence mentally because I need conversation & mental stimulation. I don’t need a simple-minded man.
I need someone who is striving for excellence spiritually because I don’t need to be unequally yoked…believers mixed with unbelievers is a recipe for disaster.
I need a man who is striving for excellence financially because I don’t need a financial burden.
I need someone who is sensitive enough to understand what I go through as a woman, but strong enough to keep me grounded.
I need someone who has integrity in dealing with relationships. Lies and game-playing are not my idea of a strong man.
I need a man who is family-oriented. One who can be the leader and provider to the lives entrusted to him by God.
I need someone whom I can respect. In order to be submissive, I must respect him.
I cannot be submissive to a man who isn’t taking care of his business. I have no problem being submissive…he just has to be worthy.
And by the way, I am not looking for him…He will find me. He will recognize himself in me. Hey may not be able to explain the connection, but he will always be drawn to me. God made woman to be a help-mate for man. I can’t help a man if he can’t help himself.”
When she finished her spill, she looked at him.
He sat there with a puzzled look on his face. He said,”You are asking a lot.”
She replied, “I’m worth a lot”.

WE should try our best to educate every hiv/aids persons if living in family that they should take all precutions themselves that this doisease doesnot reach their life parner(using condom during sex,sex is not a bar with negative partner but condom is a must even when viral load is minimum except 1-2 times sex allowed without condom for pregnancy under strict medical guide ) use all method of avoiding contamination of their blood,semen,body fluid like saliva,spits urine ,stool leakage of fluid from brain,cut injury from any where,sputum but not tears and sweat to mix with negative meber at home particularly children and family members or person at office or working place and health staff giving them service,never hide your disease,there is no shame no stigma,it is a disease it happened to you and can happen to me or any body .
Second if 1-2 child born then they should undergo vasectomy or tubectomy permannantly to avoid further pregnancy.if not interested in permannant one then woman can use pills or IUCD insersation .simple sex during non ovulation period or sperm ejaculation out side or spermicide or vaginal spermicide jelly is not that protective one.
Sex with condom is amust as if two hiv positive persons meet their genotype of virus may be different and a new virus genotype in one person and vice versa.so avoid sex without condom even with life partner what to talk of sex with stanger where condom is a must.
never transfuse blood to any person,never share needle,never donate blood or any other organ.

TRUE SELF AND NAMASMARAN: DR. SHRINIWAS KASHALIKAR
TRUE SELF AND NAMASMARAN: DR. SHRINIWAS KASHALIKAR

Student:
Sir! What is true self?
Teacher:
When we refer to self; it usually embodies and connotes a mixture of instincts, feelings, thoughts and vision, associated with the metabolic reactions, hormonal interactions and effects of neurotransmitters. All these interact continuously with the environment (The environment may be internal or external. Further; it may be; physical, chemical, biological, psychological, social, cultural or political. When it is characterized by people in the process of realizing true self; it is called spiritual environment). Thus; self with specific characteristics is recognized as a person; and said to be born and dead; distinguishing it from the body. The biographies do not describe merely the body; of an individual; but describe in details all above!
An object with three dimensions has a beginning, an end, a form and an identity. The space, which occupies; the inside and outside of that object; has a beginning and end. It has a form and an identity related to the object which it occupies from within and from outside.

Further; the time, which occupies a beginning, existence and end of an object; has also the identity of that object! For example; the time characterizes a house; as a 50 year old house! The period has an identity. The time that occupies the birth, life and death of an individual also has an identity. We call it the life of an individual.

Further; an individual human consciousness is associated the matter, the interactions, the energies, and the space and time; occupying all these! with
Self is associated with all above and it has a distinct identity.

True self is beyond all that has been referred to above! It is inside as well as outside. Our final destination is this true self. At one time or another; every one inevitably gets dissolved in the true self. Here the separate identity is dissolved in the cosmic consciousness and we lose separate and shackling existence. This is God; described with either no attributes or infinite attributes!
Student:
How to identify this true self?
Teacher:
The true self is the final and supreme controller. Since it has no form, no characteristics and no attributes, by which we can identify Him! However; He has descended in the consciousness of few; as NAMA and enthralled them with His attraction (ARTA, JIJNYASU, ARTHARTHEE, and JNANEE), remembrance (NAMASMARAN), orientation (ANUSANDHAN) and merger (MOKSHA)! Following them is the way of identifying and merging with true self!

AYURVEDIC THERAPIES ŚHODHANA AND BASTI KARMA PROVED USEFUL IN HEALING VARICOSE ULCERS
Venous ulcers (stasis ulcers, varicose ulcers) are the wounds occurring due to inappropriate functioning of venous valves, usually of the legs. It is one of the most serious chronic venous insufficiency complications.

When a venous valve gets damaged, it prevents the backflow of blood, which causes pressure in the veins that leads to hypertension and, in turn, venous ulcers. Without cleaning and regular dressings, the ulcers usually spread quickly. Venous ulcers can be very painful and may limit mobility and quality of life.

The longer the duration of the venous ulcer, the more is the damage to skin and greater the difficulty in healing. Treating varicose ulcer is a difficult task to the physician and a nightmare for the suffering patient, though different types of treatment modalities are practiced in allied sciences.

In a recent research study ; patients with above conditions provided with Processed castor oil with Neem and Guduchi - 50 ml orally used for Nityavirecana with 50 ml Śunthikashāyam for 3 days. Nityavirecana is the specific therapy in Ayurveda in which the medicine may be processed in oil or as decoction is administered orally for cleansing the bowel and liver system.

This improves the Agni metabolism of the individual. This is the first and necessary step in any enema therapy.On day 4 of management, ManjisthādiBasti karma was started with BalagudūcyādiAnuvāsanaBasti (60 ml) in kālabasti pattern.

Noticeable improvement in the symptoms was seen, it was upto 60% in edematous swelling, burning sensation was reduced up to 40%, and pricking sensation was reduced up to 30% after Nityavirecana. Moreover, Basti karma, edematous swelling was reduced to 95%, Burning sensation to 70%, and pricking sensation was reduced to 80%. Healing of the ulcerous wound started with the proliferative stage by the 3 rd day of the Basti course and the wound got healed up to 90% after the whole course of Basti karma with no adverse event during the entire course of treatment.

Possible action of these therapies-Nityavirecana (bowel and liver system cleansing therapy) Basti karma (medicated drug enema):-
In Ayurveda, this condition is considered as dustavrana and better managed with specific śodhana therapy (Purification therapy).This can be treated successfully with śodhana (purification) and śamana (pacification) therapy. So, the fore mentioned benefits of Nityavirecana (liver and bowel cleansing therapy) and Manjishthābasti (decoction enema therapy) were assessed in alleviating the symptoms and in the healing process of varicose ulcer in the patient.

Digestive and assimilation capacity and enzymatic functions through the liver system was improved by the Nityavirecana. By the laxative actions it created osmotic effects in the gut to suck the extra fluid retained anywhere in the body and is ultimately helpful in the wound healing process. Three days of treatment with Nityavirechana resulted in good appetite, reduction in the edematous swelling around the foot, and starting of granulation tissue formation in the ulcerative wound.

This research concluded that AYURVEDIC THERAPEUTIC PROCEDURES, ŚODHANA (PURIFICATION THERAPY), LIKE NITYA VIRECANA (bowel and liver system cleansing therapy) AND BASTI KARMA (medicated drug enema)ACT ON NON-HEALING ULCERS AND HELP THEM HEAL.
