Worried about Hypertension?
Keep a tab on your Lifestyle Today!

Most people in today’s generation have been raised without a basic education of how the body functions or what is beneficial and detrimental for it – both physically and mentally. As a result, we do not know how to keep diseases at bay to attain happiness in our lives. This simply means, we have a body, but have no idea of how to take care of it.

It is like buying a brand new car and jumping behind the steering wheel to take a ride before actually reading the manual or understanding the instructions. Without knowledge of the car’s functioning, you will not be able to sustain its performance for long. Sooner or later, it will begin to show signs of wear and tear, externally or internally. The car’s benefits can no longer be enjoyed unless you spend a lot of money on its repair. It eventually becomes like a sick body that cannot enjoy the advantages offered by life. The human body is a far more complex and valuable vehicle than a car. You can choose to just dump a car when it becomes a liability and buy a new one, but a body is irreplaceable. Unfortunately, many of us are more bothered about the cleaning and maintenance of our cars, instead of looking after our own health.

Hypertension Worldwide – Alarming Numbers Everywhere
The WHO estimates that 600 million people with high blood pressure (HBP) are at risk of heart attack, stroke and cardiac failure.
Worldwide, HBP is estimated to cause 7.1 million deaths, about 13 percent of the total global fatality.
Across WHO regions, research indicates that about 62 percent of strokes and 49 percent of heart attacks are caused by HBP.
•. Hypertension causes 5 million premature deaths a year worldwide.
A study stated that the prevalence of HBP will soar to 1.56 billion by the year 2025.
During the last decade, the number of Americans with high blood pressure has increased by 30%. More than 73 million Americans aged 20 years and older (1 in 3 adults) now have HBP.
In Asia, a steep increase in stroke mortality has accompanied a rapid rise in the prevalence of hypertension. Projections suggest that in China, hypertension will increase from 18.6 percent to 25 percent between 1995 and 2025. In India, the equivalent figures are 16.3 percent to 19.4 percent.

Ignorance is not always bliss. By comfortably ignoring our bodies, we are doing nothing more than inviting problems at all levels – physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. The World Health Organization has recently warned that more than 270 million people are susceptible of falling victim to diseases linked to unhealthy lifestyles. This is because we are leading lives that are far removed from the nature. Instead of being in harmony with Earth, we have adopted artificial practices that disturb the equilibrium of the mind and body. We don’t have time to prepare breakfast, eat a fast food lunch at our desk and a pre-prepared dinner in front of the television. We cannot do without air-conditioning (artificial, unhealthy air) in our homes, cars, offices, and even on public transport! Gadgets are ruling our lives – so much so that we prefer interacting with our dear ones through emails or SMSes, instead of spending time with them in person.

This over-dependence on technology, coupled with deteriorating relationships, has left our lives dry and depressed. As a result, despite all the luxuries of modern times, most people today are stressed and unhappy. This imbalance in our lives has manifested in addiction, disease and death much sooner than our anticipated lifespan.

It is not surprising then to find problems of diabetes, obesity, hypertension, heart disorders, cancer, liver cirrhosis, stroke and stress, etc. ruling over our generation. Even though modern medicine has made huge strides in controlling these diseases, it is only able to suppress their symptoms, not cure them. Moreover, the continued use of strong medicines has left most patients dependent on chemicals, thereby weakening their immunity even further. This has compelled people to seek alternative treatments that can provide long-term relief from their problems. The solution to these problems lies in Ayurveda, the ancient science of healing that has addressed itself to the fundamental principles of good health, happiness and longevity.

Through this article, we wish to turn your focus to Hypertension – the ‘Silent Killer Disease’ that affects about 15-37 percent of the global adult population. The problem of Hypertension or High Blood Pressure is extremely alarming because, if not diagnosed and treated in time, it can ‘silently’ lead to graver complications in the form of hypertensive heart disease, stroke, kidney failure and obesity.

What is Hypertension?
Hypertension (known as Rakta Gata Vata in Ayurveda) is elevated pressure of the blood in the arteries. The increase in blood pressure depends upon a person’s age, sex, physical and mental activities, family history, and diet. Normal blood pressure of a healthy adult individual is 120 mmHg systolic and 80 mmHg diastolic. This condition results from two major factors that can either exist independently or together:

  • Narrowing of the body's smaller blood vessels (arterioles), which results in the blood exerting more pressure against the vessels' walls

  • The heart pumping blood with excessive force

Hypertension rarely shows any symptoms; BP levels should be checked at regular intervals to ensure that the problem is diagnosed in time. Some of the symptoms that might be present are pain at the back of the neck (occipital headache), fatigue, palpitations and dizziness. Read More

Hypertension – A Jiva Case Study

Mrs. Seema Puri (name changed), a 42-year-old married, working woman from Ludhiana, India, had been suffering from high blood pressure for the last ten years. To keep her problem in control, she had been taking a daily dose of allopathic medicines. Her extremely busy schedule meant she never got the time to delve deeply into her problem and find a long-term solution to it. In February 2010, she started feeling extreme side-effects from her daily medication in the form of weakness, fatigue and random bouts of insomnia. It was then that she felt the need to tackle the problem severely. She called the Jiva TeleMedicine Center to seek Ayurvedic consultation for her condition.

The Problem
When Mrs. Puri contacted Jiva Ayurveda, one of our doctors studied her medical history comprehensively, including her complete physical and mind test. It was discovered that she had been suffering from severe digestive disorder since ten years of age. She had chronic problems of elimination – she passed motion 2-3 times with a lot of difficulty. Gas, flatulence and acidity had been a permanent part of her life for many years. In addition to all this, she had been overweight for quite some time.

Her condition was diagnosed to be a result of liver dysfunction. The chronic problem of digestion had led to ama (toxins) formation in her body; these toxins had blocked her arteries and caused blockage in the circulatory system. In addition, acidic gases were putting unnecessary strain on her blood vessels, leading to increase in blood pressure.

The Treatment
Because we realize that chemicals create complications in the body – sooner or later, our main objective in this case was to help the patient come out of her habit of taking daily medicines. Jiva’s line of treatment was focused on:

  • Ama Pachan or elimination of toxins present inside the arteries and circulatory system through the use of herbal medicines.

  • Strengthening the liver through a regulated diet plan that contained foods that were cool and non-acidic in nature.

  • Pacification of the Vata and Pitta Doshas (Ayurvedic humors representing Air and Fire respectively) that were blocking the heart’s channels through Vata-Pitta Shamak Chikitsa.

Jiva did not prescribe a single medicine for controlling her blood pressure, as it was obvious that the root cause of her problem lied elsewhere.

“After discussing my case with Jiva Ayurveda, I realized
I had been unnecessarily taking daily tablets for my
BP problem. Jiva helped me discover that the real cause
 of my high pressure was my faulty digestion. Through their
herbal medicines and simple diet plan, I was able to get my
condition under control in just seven months. Now, I
recommend Ayurvedic treatment to everyone I know. “

The Result
After seven months of taking Jiva’s medicines and following our customized diet plan, Mrs. Puri felt a remarkable improvement in her digestion. She could now pass motion comfortably and the problem of gas was almost non-existent now. Resultantly, her blood pressure levels also came back within the normal range and she felt no need to take her daily dose of BP tablets.


Humor is infectious. The sound of roaring laughter is far more contagious than any cough, sniffle or sneeze. When laughter is shared, it binds people together and increases happiness and intimacy. Laughter also triggers healthy physical changes in the body. It strengthens the immune system, boosts energy, diminishes pain, and protects us from the damaging effects of stress. Best of all, this priceless medicine is fun, free and easy to use.


Meet a Dedicated Ayurveda Enthusiast

Lilliana Flores Banavides of Mexico is one of the most ardent followers of Ayurveda, someone who swears by this natural way of life. Her dedication to Ayurveda is the reason why she keeps coming back to Jiva (she’s already been here three times). During her visits, Lilliana always makes it a point to bring in people from her country, with the intention of enlightening them on the benefits of the ancient science of healing. During a freewheeling chat, she speaks to us about her love for Ayurveda, Jiva and India.

What is the response to Ayurveda in Mexico?
Right now, Ayurvedic knowledge is not very massive there. It is only followed by a select group of people. However, we are witnessing a huge amount of interest in different kinds of alternative treatments, including Ayurveda. I am sure, with the right kind of promotional activities, we will be able to present the benefits of this science to a larger section of the Mexican society.

Have you adopted Ayurveda in your own life?
Ayurveda is a highly beneficial and interesting ancient knowledge system that should be adapted in our lives. It is not just effective in healing physical disorders, but also helps us in creating a better world. Personally, I am a huge Ayurveda lover and have adopted its principles in my life. I promote this science in my school and make efforts to bring students to Jiva. In fact, I have plans to invite Dr. Chauhan for a lecture in Mexico.

This is the third time you have brought a group of students to Jiva. What attracts you to this organization?
Dr. Partap Chauhan is the biggest reason why I come back again and again. He is not only an extraordinary doctor, but also a great human being. This is a rarely-found combination in our world today. Moreover, I have always enjoyed my stay at Jiva because of the love and affection that I get from people here. I would love to come here every year.

How have your fellow Mexicans found the experience of being at Jiva and India?
Initially, they were in a state of shock, which is quite natural because they witness an entirely different culture in this country. However, day by day, they begin to appreciate life here. About their stay at Jiva, I am sure they will take back very fond memories of the learning experience as well as the hospitality.

Jiva organizes Campus
Recruitment Sessions in Bangalore & Patiala

As a step to further its mission of ‘taking Ayurveda to every home’, Jiva Ayurveda recently organized campus interviews in the cities of Bangalore and Patiala. The events were organized to bring on board fresh and experienced Ayurvedic doctors for the Jiva TeleMedicine Center (TMC).

As part of our initiative of training doctors from various parts of the country, we organized a campus interview program at the Sri Sri College of Ayurvedic Sciences & Research Campus, Bangalore, on March 12, 2011. Ayush Director, Government of Karnataka, Mr. G.N. Sri Kantaya, and Director and Trustee of Sri Sri College of Ayurvedic Sciences & Research Campus, Mr. Ravindra Prasad, were chief guests at the event.

About 20 colleges affiliated to the Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences participated in the event, with over 300 BAMS students (interns and alumni) rooting for jobs with Jiva. The highlight of the event was a session by Jiva Ayurveda Director, Dr. Partap Chauhan, where he personally interacted with students on how they can utilize the principles of Ayurveda to establish a healthy and happy society in India.

Dr. M. Chandra Shekhar, Deputy Registrar at the Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences, expressed his contentment at the success of the event. “This is the first time the university has organized campus recruitment for Ayurvedic doctors. We are very happy with the response from students. It’s good to have companies like Jiva come forward to carve careers of young doctors,” he said.

In Patiala, the campus recruitment session was held at Government Ayurvedic College on February 17, 2011. An event of this kind was organized in the college for the first time, and invited participation from about 100 students – both fresh graduates and alumni. The event generated a lot of excitement among students, who were keen to headstart their careers with an organization of repute. In fact, after a round of technical tests and interviews, a few doctors from the Patiala group have already joined the TMC.

Dr. Pardeep Kapil, Principal of Government Ayurvedic College, was quite upbeat about the event. “We were quite pleased to host the Jiva team, who helped our students find lucrative career opportunities in the field of Ayurveda. We intend to organize this kind of a session every year,” he said.

Don’t Suppress Migraine; Treat It!

You are having a great day at work; an important deal that you have worked so hard on is about to be finalized and the boss is very happy with you. Suddenly, that terrible Migraine headache strikes during a crucial meeting. You have to excuse yourself as the pain needs to be taken care of. You take your second painkiller of the day, grab a big mug of coffee and get back to the meeting room. However, before the medicine can show its effect, the pain has become unbearable, making it impossible for you to continue with the meeting. At such a crucial juncture, you end up asking for the remaining day off. The boss is not happy anymore, because this has become a regular habit with you. After today’s scene, with the deal in trouble, your job too seems to be in serious trouble.

Anyone who’s ever had Migraine knows that it is a nightmare. It comes with debilitating pain and nausea that can often keep you confined to a dark room with pillows over your head for hours on end. As a result, most Migraine sufferers are unable to work or take care of their family while experiencing the pain.

With Migraine comes the "where did the day go" effect, primarily caused by the persistent use of strong painkillers. Even as these medicines manage to suppress the pains, they are not successful in providing long-term relief to the patient. Additionally, their continued use further weakens the body and makes it dependant on these chemicals. With suppression of pains being the only treatment option available in modern medicine, what can Migraine patients do to ensure their complete wellbeing? The solution lies in Ayurveda, the world’s oldest system of medicine, which provides holistic healing in the severest of Migraine cases.

The Underdiagnosed Disease
Migraine, known as Ardhavbhedak (meaning ‘half region of the head’) in Ayurveda, is widely regarded as one of the most underdiagnosed, misdiagnosed and undertreated diseases. According to researchers, most migraines are misdiagnosed as sinus or tension-type headaches. Additionally, less than half of all cases are diagnosed and receive treatment. Sadly, there is no test to confirm the diagnosis of migraines. The only way you can do so is by clearly explaining your situation (esp. the type of pain you are experiencing) to a doctor.

What is Migraine
A common neurological syndrome, Migraine is characterized by altered bodily perceptions, severe pounding headaches, nausea and irritability. This pounding or pain usually begins in the forehead, the side of the head or around the eyes and gradually gets worse. Bright lights or loud noises can worsen the condition. The headache can last for two hours or even up to two or three days.

Common Triggers
According to online research, 85% of people suffering from Migraine could report something that triggers the attack. These include weather (up to 50%), missing a meal (40%), stress (about 50%), alcohol (50%) and certain types of food items (45%). About 50% of women reported menstrual periods as a significant trigger. Additionally, allergic reactions, exposure to loud noises or certain odors, smoking, or long exposures to computer screens/televisions could lead to Migraine attacks.

The Ayurvedic View
The traditional science of Ayurveda does not regard Migraine as a case of prolonged headaches. On the contrary, it considers this condition to be caused by deep-rooted problems, including a sensitive nervous system and impaired digestion.

Improper diet and lifestyle causes aggravation of Pitta (Ayurvedic humor representing Fire) in the body. In an aggravated state, Pitta impairs digestion, leading to production of digestive impurities (known as ama). This ama gets stored in the manovahi strotas (mind channels), thereby becoming the cause for pains in migraine.

A sensitive nervous system lowers the ojas (energy) in the body. Ojas is the essence of all body tissues and provides strength to the nervous system and body. If you have a strong nervous system, you are able to fight against problems and carry on with your work with a healthy mind. Lowering of ojas causes migraine-like problems.

How does Ayurveda treat Migraine
Ayurveda does not propagate short-term pain relief for Migraine patients. Rather, it believes in cleaning the body from within and eradicating the disease from its roots. Ayurvedic treatment of Migraine therefore is centered on the pacification of Pitta Dosha, and restoration of digestive function in the body. Nervine tonics are also recommended to enhance the ojas, relax the mind and give strength to the nervous system. Patients are given herbal medicines as well as customized diet and lifestyle plans in accordance with their body constitution and the root cause of disease. When the body’s digestion is enhanced, ama production gets controlled, leading to cleansing of manovahi strotas. As a result, patients can get long-term relief from the most chronic of pains.

Recommended Diet & Lifestyle

  • Avoid hot, spicy foods, fermented foods, white sugar, white flour products, and sour or citrus fruits, because they aggravate the Pitta in your body.

  • Drink more water and eat more fiber, fruits and vegetables, and whole grains

  • Avoid excessive sugar or salt, refined foods, animal products (meats and dairy), caffeine, tea, and alcohol, as these items will further lead to aggravation of Pitta.

  • Avoid direct exposure to the sun, as migraine headaches are predominantly a Pitta disorder and can be triggered by the hot sun.

  • Head massage with Bhringraj Oil is also beneficial. This massage gives a calming effect to your nervous system.

  • Headaches caused due to tension and worry can be alleviated through deep breathing and relaxation, especially in a lying down position in a quiet place. Inverted postures, or those where the head is lowered briefly, increase oxygen to the brain and can reduce headache-causing strain.

Home Remedies

  • If there is a burning sensation, apply a paste of ground clay or sandalwood powder mixed with rose water.

  • When the headache is due to inflamed sinuses, inhale steam with vinegar added to the water.

  • Mix ¼ teaspoon of clove powder with 1 teaspoon of cinnamon oil. Apply this paste on the affected area for 20-30 minutes.

Ayurvedic treatment therapies, known as Panchakarma, are also effective in treating Migraine pains. Nasya (administration of herbal oils into the nostrils) and Shriodhara (head massage) are especially highly recommended to such patients. Both procedures are aimed at removing the cause of the headache and the pain.

Migraine – A Jiva Case Study

Mrs. Kulvinder Kaur (name changed) is a 35-year-old housewife from Bhopal, India. For the last 15 years of her life, she has been suffering from severe, persistent headaches, characterized by a feeling of pulsation in the temporal region. She had tried all kinds of treatment – Allopathic, Homeopathic and Ayurvedic – but to no avail. Many a time, she ended up taking injections to pacify the intense pains. The one relief she had was that, unlike most cases of Migraine, change of weather or tension did not have any effect on her condition.

Repeated bouts of constipation and severe lack of appetite were other conditions that she was suffering from. Expectedly, these apparently minor problems got sidelined in her pursuit of treatment for Migraine.

Even though she was highly anxious about initiating another new line of treatment, Mrs. Kaur called the Jiva TeleMedicine Center after watching Dr. Partap Chauhan’s TV show. One of Jiva’s doctors analyzed her case in detail after taking her complete medical history and symptomatic information. The analysis indicated that she had a history of severe digestive problems, which had led to production of ama (toxins) in her body. These toxins had accumulated in her mind’s channels, causing pains of Migraine. In this case, problems of constipation and lack of appetite were the other clear indications of ama accumulation.

What did Jiva suggest?
Ayurveda considers ama to be the mother of all diseases. Even though toxins may not show any immediate impact on the body, over time, they accumulate in the body’s channels and lead to graver problems. The same applied to Mrs. Kaur’s case as well.

Jiva created a customized line of treatment for her, which started with herbal medicines for pacification of Pitta Dosha (Ayurvedic humor representing Fire), which was aggravated in her case. Secondly, the treatment focused on elimination of toxins present inside her mind channels, so that her pains could subside. For this, she was recommended a strict anti-Pitta diet that contained fresh fruits and vegetables and whole grains. All kinds of spicy and fermented foods were strictly prohibited. Additionally, she was recommended simple breathing exercises to increase oxygen supply to the brain and relieve headaches.

The Result
Within two months of treatment, Mrs. Kaur felt about 20% improvement in her condition. She has been taking medicines for six months now and there has been no more complaint of pain. Nonetheless, she is continuing with the medication to keep her digestion in balance.

“Before I came to Jiva, I had lost faith that my condition could be treated. I was quite surprised to discover that digestive problems were the root cause of Migraine pains. With Jiva’s Ayurvedic medicines and tailor-made diet plan, I have not only managed to get the pains in control, but have also started feeling better overall.”


Listening to soft music, use of desired aromas and a gentle head massage is nice way to relax after the daylong hard work. Our hectic schedules during the day lead to an aggravation of Vata (Ayurvedic humor representing Air), which causes stress and anxiety. Relaxation techniques such as soft music, aromas, etc., pacify Vata and refresh the mind for the next day.


News and Events
Dr. Chauhan guides prospective
Managers about Living a Balanced Work Life

On the occasion of World Health Day, Jiva Ayurveda recently organized an interactive chat session on ‘Ayurveda for Managers’ for students and faculty of the Indian Institute of Planning & Management, New Delhi. Conducted by Jiva Ayurveda Director, Dr. Partap Chauhan, the session focused on helping prospective managers understand work-life balance and the need for a healthy wholesome lifestyle in order to build a sustainable career.

During the session, Dr. Chauhan addressed the critical issue of growing stress-related and lifestyle disorders faced by the youth as they step into the competitive and high pressure world of business. “India’s future will be secure only when the youth is happy and healthy. Unfortunately, in today’s world, there’s tremendous competition, which leads to problems of stress and strained relationships. Through this session, I want to urge the youth to adapt Ayurvedic principles of living in order to strike the right balance between their personal and professional lives,” Dr. Chauhan said during the event. He then went on to guide students on how to adapt Ayurvedic principles into their lifestyle in order to be able to survive the corporate grind that awaits them.

Dr. Partap Chauhan interacts with students and faculty members of IIPM, New Delhi, during
his chat session on the occasion of World Health Day.

About 150 students and faculty members of IIPM attended the session, and were deeply impressed by the Ayurvedic way of life, as propagated by Jiva. At the end of the event, many students participated in a question-answer session with Dr. Chauhan, seeking solutions to the common problems that impact their lives.

India’s leading radio station, 92.7 Big FM, broadcast the event on their channel on World Health Day, April 7, 2011.

Jiva takes the Ayurvedic recruitment bandwagon to Amritsar

Having tasted success with campus recruitments in Bangalore and Patiala, Jiva took the Ayurveda bandwagon to Amritsar. The campus recruitment session, organized at the Shree Lakshmi Narayan Ayurvedic College, saw about 100 students (both freshers and alumni) participate in the event.

Students of the college were quite thrilled to be a part of the session and gave their best to get a place in the Jiva family. The event was widely covered in the local media, with many hailing Jiva for its unique efforts.

Dr. Narendra Kumar Chawla, Principal, Shree Lakshmi Narayan Ayurvedic College, was pleased with the entire event and the response it generated. “It’s the first campus recruitment session for my students and they are obviously excited. I wish more and more Ayurvedic companies follow Jiva’s example and help in spreading Ayurveda across the world by nurturing fresh talent,” he said.

Is Obesity weighing you down?
Get the Perfect Solution with Ayurveda

Why do so many people fail at losing weight? Is it because they are addicted to food? No. Is it because they are lazy? No. Is it because they aren’t good at exercising? No. Failure at weight loss stems primarily from ignorance – about the risks of being overweight and the reasons we actually gain weight.

The condition of being overweight, known as Obesity in medical parlance, is soon becoming an epidemic. With more than 500 million clinically obese people worldwide, incidences of diabetes, heart disease, stroke, hypertension, and high cholesterol associated with Obesity are also on a constant rise. According to global estimates, Obesity is the reason for about 80% of type 2 diabetes, about 70% of cardiovascular diseases, and 42% of breast and colon cancers.

What is Obesity?
Obesity or being overweight is a condition characterized by excessive storage of fat in the body. When the body’s calorie intake exceeds the amount of calories burned, it leads to the storage of excess calories in the form of body fat. Some of the common symptoms of this disease include increased body fat, breathlessness on exertion, lethargy, excessive sweating with bad odor, and fatigue.

The Overhyped Solutions
Due to the expanse of the media, there is so much misinformation on fitness and weight loss that it becomes hard for a person to cut through all the junk and find out what really works. Also, what works for one person might not work for another, since everyone's body and lifestyle is different.

Frustrated because of their inability to lose weight, most people end up opting for the overhyped solutions – slimming programs, crash diet courses, weight loss instruments, surgical operations, etc. that ‘assure’ you will lose a certain number of kilos in a certain number of days. These programs have been designed to help you lose weight fast. However, in the long-term, they cause health complications such as weakening of the immune system, heart palpitations and cardiac stress, overexertion, loss of heart muscles, and damage to blood vessels, among other problems. These unhealthy ways of losing weight are short-term solutions that ultimately end up weakening the body from inside.

So, what do you do? Where do you turn for help? Well… Ayurveda presents the perfect solution to your problem.

The Ayurvedic View
In Ayurveda, Obesity is known as Medorog, a disease caused by the aggravation of Kapha. Kapha is an Ayurvedic humor representing Water and Earth; it is dense, heavy, slow, sticky, wet and cold in nature. It governs all structure and lubrication in the mind and body apart from controlling weight and formation of all the seven tissues - nutritive fluids, blood, fat, muscles, bones, marrow and reproductive tissues.

In a balanced state, Kapha gives nourishment to these tissues through various micro channels. However, when it is aggravated, Kapha leads to production of toxins in the body. These toxins are heavy and dense in nature and accumulate in weaker channels of the body, causing their blockage. In the case of an obese person, toxins accumulate in Medovahi Srotas (fat channels), thereby leading to an increase in the production of fat tissue (Medo Dhatu). When the body produces more fat tissues, it leads to an increase in weight.

According to Ayurveda, the treatment of Obesity cannot be generalized for every patient. The identification of the root cause of disease is paramount to providing a long-term solution.

Know your Obesity Better – Prakriti or Vikriti
Ayurveda says, Obesity can be the result of Prakriti (your nature) or Vikriti (an imbalance). Once you understand the real cause behind your problem, you will be in a better position to deal with it.

There are two distinct, yet inter-related, classifications of a person in Ayurveda. The first relates to the body, and the second to the mind. Your nature is determined by this combination of body and mind types, and is known as your Prakriti. Knowing your Prakriti helps you to tailor a personal diet and lifestyle that can prevent disease and physical disorders, and obtain peace of mind. It provides you with an understanding of your basic physical and psychological nature, and how to keep it in balance with your surroundings. This is the key to maintaining health.

Every human has varying degrees of the three doshas or Ayurvedic humors – Vata (air), Pitta (fire) and Kapha (water). People with a predominant Kapha Dosha tend to have a heavy or large build. They are often overweight, gain weight easily and have high muscle development (a plump and round structure). These people have a tendency to put on weight easily; in fact, they can put on weight simply by drinking excess water! People of the Kapha type can never be skinny, as opposed to Vata people, who are lean and fit by nature. Even if a Vata person eats six meals in a day, he will not put on too much weight.

Before you jump onto conclusions about your excess weight gain, it is important for you to know your predominant dosha. You can do so simply by taking the VPK Test. Once you know you have Kapha prakriti, you can be sure that Obesity is not a disease for you. Never forget that it is not possible for you to change your elemental nature, and so there is no point of being so worried about your weight. People with a Kapha body type can easily keep their weight under control by taking care of their diet (eating more of fresh food items, fruits and vegetables, etc.) and exercising regularly. Read more about dietary guidelines for Kapha.

In this case, Obesity is caused due to Vikriti or an imbalance in the body. A common myth amongst people is that this disease is the result of excessive consumption of heavy foods or sweets. In reality, a balanced intake of heavy or sweet foods is absolutely acceptable to the body when your digestion is healthy. On the contrary, if your digestive power is weak, your body will not be able to digest even light foods. These undigested food particles lead to creation of ama (toxins) in the body. Accumulation of these toxins in the fat carrying channels finally results in Obesity. In patients suffering from this disease, any food that is consumed eventually converts into fat, aggravating the problem even further.

At the Mind Level
According to Ayurveda, in certain individuals, Obesity can also be the result of disturbances at the mind level. Depression, anxiety, emotional trauma and stress often prompt people to eat more than they need (referred to as ‘comfort eating’). Eating more leads to indigestion and formation of ama. It also increases Tamas (ignorance) in the mind, making the person lazy, sleepy and inactive, and reducing the ability to think clearly and take intelligent decisions.

The Perfect Solution
Ayurveda provides the perfect solution to the problem of Obesity. The treatment starts with cleansing of fat accumulated in the body’s channels using herbal medicines. It then focuses on maintaining the body’s digestive fire. Regular exercises are recommended to keep the body fit and mobile. Ayurvedic treatment therapies, known as Panchakarma, can also be quite effective in eliminating toxins from the body. At the mind level, the solution to this problem lies in enhancing Sattva (purity) by eating fresh foods and thinking positive. Additionally, the patient should try to remove the cause of depression by having a personal counseling session with a doctor.

Certain Ayurvedic products, such as the Jiva Sattva Obesity Healthcare Pack, have been specifically created for Obesity patients. The pack contains herbal powders, tablets and teas that not only clean the fat carrying channels, but also work at the mind level to provide long-term relief to the patient.

Diet & Lifestyle Advice

  • Avoid high carbohydrates like polished rice and potato.

  • Avoid oily and fried foods, processed foods, fatty foods like butter, cheese, whole-milk yogurt, cream, chocolate, etc.

  • Have more bitter vegetables like bitter gourd and the bitter variety of drumsticks

  • Replace refined flour with whole-wheat flour and rice with brown rice or parboiled rice

  • Increase intake of fruits, salads and vegetables.

  • It is very important to engage in daily exercise in the form of walking, jogging, swimming or any other physical activity that is not competitive.

  • Try to take a walk in the morning and again in the early evening, working up to 30 minutes or more each time. Increase physical activity by doing more physical chores during the day.

Some Home Remedies

  • Take 1 cup of warm water with 1 teaspoon each of lime juice and honey and a pinch of black pepper. Have this on an empty stomach twice a day.

  • Mix powdered long pepper, black pepper and dried ginger root in equal quantities. Have ½ teaspoon of this twice a day with lukewarm water.

  • Boil 7-8 mint leaves in 1 cup of water for five minutes, and let it cool. Add 1 teaspoon honey and a pinch of black pepper to the cooled mint water and drink it. You can have this preparation 2-3 times a day.

Obesity – A Jiva Case Study

The Jiva TeleMedicine Center has successfully treated hundreds of Obesity cases, offering long-term solutions to several patients. One such interesting case is that of Mr. Kishan Chawla (name changed), a 35-year-old Obesity patient from Jodhpur, India.

At a height of 5 foot 5 inches, Mr. Chawla weighed 92 kilos – a Body Mass Index that indicated he was overweight. He had been obese for 10 years, but had not found success with any of the treatments he had tried. He had also enrolled into one of the crash dieting programs, but the result lasted only for about six months and he started acquiring weight again. He also had off and on problems of constipation, gas formation, a feeling of lethargy, and memory loss. And, to top it all, he was diagnosed with Hypothyroidism three years back.

Mr. Chawla’s weight had become a constant source of embarrassment for him and when he called the Jiva TMC, he was all set to go under the knife for a liposuction surgery.

Jiva’s Analysis
One of Jiva’s doctors analyzed his case in detail after taking his complete medical history and symptomatic information. The doctor also helped him understand the difference between losing weight naturally and the unhealthy techniques of crash dieting, etc.

Mr. Chawla’s analysis indicated that his problem was caused by the aggravation of Kapha Dosha (Ayurvedic humor representing Water). The aggravated Kapha had led to the production of ama (toxins), which was heavy and dense in nature. Accumulation of these heavy toxins in the fat carrying channels had resulted in excessive production of fat tissues, which was the primary cause of weight gain in his case. Additionally, his digestive power was also weak, and this was the reason for constipation and gas formation in his body.

The Treatment
Ayurveda works on the root cause of disease by personalizing treatment according to the patient’s body type. In Mr. Chawla’s case, the root cause was aggravated Kapha. So, the treatment focused on pacification of Kapha through customized herbal medicines, dietary guidelines and lifestyle recommendations. Secondly, the treatment worked on cleansing the fat carrying channels by eliminating accumulated toxins. Because the patient had a weak digestion, he was also administered Deepan and Pachan treatment aimed at enhancing his digestive fire. In addition to this, he was given nervine tonics for relaxation of mind.

The Result
Within two months of treatment, Mr. Chawla lost eight kilos of weight. His problem of constipation and gas formation was cured completely. He also started feeling active and confident about himself. He is continuing with the medication to lower his weight further and keep it under control.

“I was ready for a liposuction surgery to cut down my excess fat when someone recommended Jiva to me. The best part about my Ayurvedic treatment was that it was personalized to my specific needs. The medicines, diet and lifestyle recommended to me helped in losing eight kilos in just two months. Today, I can confidently recommend Ayurveda to all Obesity patients.”


Attachment to material things and mundane desires causes psychic disorders. Too much focus on self often leads to attachment, which comes in the form of craving - wanting things one does not have - and ignorance - craving without knowing the futility of the wanting. Remember, the art of living well requires you to find out what you need, and not what you want.

OCARINA - Roses for Joang Ling-- Cómo germinan los fríjoles? Desarrollo: Selecciona un frasco de vidrio con boca ancha; puede ser en el que viene la mermelada, la mayonesa o el café. Le viertes agua y luego tomas una pequeña cantidad, no muy gruesa, de algódón y la colocas de tapa. El algodón debe apenas tocar el agua, debe mantenerse en contacto pero sin que se humedezca mucho. Tomas un fríjol, lo lavas y lo colocas encima del algodón. El fríjol poco a poco comienza a germinar; además de ser emocionante ver cada uno de sus pasos, los puedes ir pintando. Si colocas varios frascos con fríjoles, será maravilloso seguir la carrera del que crezca más rápido. Para variar el juego esto mismo lo puedes hacer con arvejas, lentejas o garbanzos. También, coloca una papa dentro de un frasco de vidrio con agua y verás cómo con el transcurrir de los días comienza a germinar y a echar raíces. De la misma manera, puedes conseguirte un manojo de zanahorias con sus hojas, córtalas dejando tan sólo dos o tres centímetros de zanahoria y colócalas en un platón plano con agua. Al cabo de unos días tendrás un bosque de zanahorias. Fuente: Arango M., Infante E., López, M. (2000). Juguemos con los niños - Actividades para estimular el desarrollo entre 1 y 7 años. Tomo 3.

NUECES Se trata del fruto seco más estudiado por los científicos que han llegado a la conclusión de que su consumo moderado ayuda a proteger al organismo de enfermedades coronarias ya que reduce los níveles de colesterol total. Las nueces son ricas sobre todo en grasas poliinsaturadas de tipo omega 3, mientras que el ácido oleico (grasa monoinsaturada) sólo representa alrededor del 15%. Además, gracias a su contenido en vitaminas del grupo B, están indicadas para aliviar la fatiga, el estrés o el síndrome premenstrual. Las avellanas y las nueces son los frutos secos que muestran un mayor contenido en ácido fólico, seguidos de los piñones, los pistachos y las almendras; conviene recordar que los requerimientos diarios de ácido fólico, para una persona adulta, son del orden de los 400 µg. Otra pecualiaridad, las nueces son el segundo alimento más rico en antioxidantes de todos los alimentos vegetales analizados en un estudio dirigido por Halvorsen, un investigador noruego, en el 2002. • Calorías: 688 • Proteínas: 14 gr • Grasas: 59 gr • Hidratos de carbono: 4 gr • Fibra: 5 gr • Vitamina E: 2.92 mg • Fitoesteroles: 72.0 mg • Calcio: 94 mg • Colesterol: 0 mg

9 RAZONES PARA TOMAR AGUA Más del 60% de nuestro cuerpo está formado por agua. Este líquido es de vital importancia en la mayoría de las funciones que desempeña nuestro cuerpo. Diariamente el cuerpo humano elimina un promedio de 2 litros de agua. Lo justo es que devolvamos esta cantidad para mantener el equilibrio. Consumir la cantidad recomendada de agua ofrece las siguiente ventajas: 1. Pérdida peso. Consumir agua natural en lugar de refrescos hará que consumamos una menor cantidad de calorías. Además el agua da la sensación de estar llenos, lo que evitará que consumamos alimentos con poco valor nutritivo entre comidas (papas fritas, galletas, dulces). 2. Mejoramiento de la salud de corazón. Estudios realizados por la American Journal of Epidemiology demuestran que quien toma más de cinco vasos de agua al día tiene 41% menos posibilidades de sufrir un ataque cardiaco. 3. Aumento de energía. Estar deshidratado produce fatiga, debilidad muscular, vértigo, entre otros síntomas. 4. Menos dolores de cabeza. La deshidratación es la causa principal de los dolores de cabeza. 5. Una piel saludable. Con el adecuado consumo de vitamita E y de agua nuestra piel se mantiene en óptimas condiciones. 6. Soluciona problemas digestivos. El consumo de agua reduce la acidez estomacal. Si además se consume una buena cantidad de fibra, la salud de nuestro aparato digestivo mejorará notablemente. 7. Limpia nuestro cuerpo. El agua ayuda a que se liberen toxinas o productos de desecho que están en los tejidos y la sangre. 8. Reduce la probabilidad de cáncer. Consumir agua suficiente reduce hasta un 45% la probabilidad de tener cáncer de colon y un 50% el cáncer de vejiga. 9. Mejora el rendimiento físico. Al hacer ejercicio el cuerpo pierde gran cantidad de agua. Por lo que es necesario reponerla para garantizar el óptimo desempeño. La cantidad de agua que consumiremos dependerá de nuestras necesidades específicas. Dos litros son sólo una cantidad promedio. Para algunas personas será suficiente un litro y otras necesitarán de tres. Lo importante es que "escuchemos" a nuestro cuerpo y consumamos la cantidad que nos hace sentir mejor. Recordemos que algunas frutas y verduras están conformados por un alto porcentaje de agua. Así que si no quieres consumirla directamente todo el tiempo tienes una alternativa saludable en este tipo de alimentos. Por último, se recomienda que el consumo sea constante. Cada quien establece los intervalos que mejor se adapten a su ritmo de vida.

Alimentos que combaten el envejecimiento A continuación reproducimos la dieta antienvejecimiento definitiva publicada esta semana por el periódico británico Daily Mirror. Tomar pescado azul: varias actrices de Hoolywood lo toman por recomendación del Dr. Nicholas Perricone, quien recomienda a sus pacientes tomar gran cantidad de este pescado debido a que las grasas esenciales que contienen proporcionan unos antioxidantes buenos para la piel y eliminan los radicales libres que causan las arrugas y el envejecimiento prematuro de la piel. Las mejores fuentes de estos ácidos grasos esenciales son el salmón, la caballa, los filetes de atún fresco y las sardinas. El elevado contenido en proteínas de estos pescados también ayuda mantener la piel firme y, además, te mantienen delgado. Beber agua: el principal agente antienvejecimiento es el agua. Se dice a menudo, pero es que el agua es realmente fundamental para mantener una buena salud y un buen aspecto. Recuerda que el alcohol deshidrata la piel, dándole un aspecto gris, seco y arrugado. Beber agua produce el efecto contrario, reafirma la piel y elimina las toxinas que dan lugar a un cutis sin apagado y con arrugas. El agua del tiempo es lo mejor, pero hay otros líquidos rejuvenecedores como la leche de soja, que según las investigaciones ayuda a acelerar la producción de colágeno. Tomar fruta rejuvenecedora: si quieres parecer más joven, toma mucha fruta. En primer lugar está el kiwi, una de las fuentes más ricas de de vitamina C. Esta vitamina es fantástica para la piel porque ayuda a fabricar colágeno y elimina las toxinas ue producen el envejecimiento. Los aguacates también son fundamentales, ya que contienen vitamina A y E, muy eficaces para combatir las arrugas. Trocea uno en una ensalada o sándwich. Tienen bastantes calorías y grasa pero es un tipo de grasa saludable (insaturada) que, en realidad, acelera el metabolismo. Toma una ración de bayas todos los días. Los arándanos, las moras y las grosellas protegen el cuerpo del envejecimiento debido a su elevado contenido de unos antioxidantes denominados fitoquímicos. Por último, toma también algunas ciruelas y uvas pasas. Hidratos de carbono rejuvenecedores: los cereales de avena son un buen modo de empezar el día y parecer más jóvenes. Además de proporcionarte energía para toda la mañana, los estudios indican que los cereales de avena contienen unos niveles elevados de un mineral llamado ácido silícico que reafirma las células de la piel; también ralentizan a aparición de arrugas. El pan también es bueno para la piel, pero no cualquier pan, toma el de multicereales en lugar del blanco. Está lleno de selenio, que combate el proceso de envejecimiento conservando la elasticidad de la piel. Superalimentos rejuvenecedores:

(1) Almendras: llenas de ácidos grasos omega-3 y proteínas, que ayudan ala reparación de la piel. Además, son una buena fuente de vitamina E, que previene las arrugas. Consejo: toma un puñado todas las tardes.

(2) Aceite de oliva: un estudio reciente, publicado en la revista Journal of the American College of Nutrition, observó la relación existente entre el aceite de oliva y las arrugas. Consejo: cambia el aceite vegetal por el de oliva y utilízalo para aderezar las ensaladas.

(3) Judías adzuki: son una gran fuente de zinc, un mineral que ayuda a la reparación de la piel; el zinc es bueno también para el acné. Consejo: cómpralas en lata en el supermercado y añádelas a ensaladas y revueltos.

(4) Albaricoques: están llenos de luteina, un antioxidante que, según científicos de la Universidad de Harvard combate el envejecimiento de la piel por el sol. Consejo: toma unos cuentos como aperitivo entre comidas, o frescos troceados en los cereales.

(5) espinacas: también son una buena fuente de luteina, que protege la piel del daño del sol y las manchas solares. Consejo: añade unas cuantas a un revuelto o úsalas como sustituto de la lechuga en ensaladas.

(6) Tomates: su ingrediente mágico es la licopena, un potente antioxidante. Además de reducir el riesgo de ciertos cánceres, la licopena protege la piel de los efectos del sol y hace que se mantenga joven. Consejo: tómalos en rodajas en los sándwiches o añádelos a la ensalada.

(7) Brécol: es ideal para luchar contra los radicales libres, sustancias dañinas que se encuentran en el ambiente y nos envejecen, como la polución. Consejo: añádelo troceado a revueltos, platos de curry e incluso a la lasaña. (8) Vino tinto: impulsa la circulación hacia la piel, además de estar lleno de antioxidantes. Consejo: toma una copa de vino tinto unas cuantas noches a la semana.

LAS MARAVILLAS DE LA UVA EL VINO UN BRINDIS A LA SALUD Un grupo de amigos celebra el encuentro. Tazas de vino son levantadas en un gesto festivo y voces animadas repiten juntas el viejo brindis: " Salud!" Los saludos nunca fueron tan verdaderos! Pues es eso lo que médicos e investigadores están descubriendo. Una copa de vino esconde más que sabor y placer, es una fuente de salud! Las uvas salen de las parras y van derecho a las bancadas de los laboratorios, consultorios y hospitales y se transforman en receta médica! El vino ayuda, pero en la dosis correcta! Es el llamado consumo moderado: una copa de 100ml para las mujeres y dos para los hombres. Los médicos firman abajo! Para entender ese misterio, es necesario conocer dos elementos de nombres extraños, contenidos en el vino tinto: el resveratrol y los flavonóides . El resveratrol, elimina las plaquetas que provocan coágulos y tapan las arterias. Los flavonóides son antioxidantes, inhiben la formación de los radicales libres, que provocan el envejecimiento de las células y por consecuencia, dejan el organismo más vulnerable a enfermedades. La conclusión a que se llega es que, lo que hay de más importante en el vino tinto,no es el alcohol, y sí los flavonóides , explica el cardiólogo de la INCOR. Pero, si el vino hace tanto bien para la salud, y lo que importa en él es la uva y no el alcohol, ¿por qué no adoptar, tambien, el jugo de uva? JUGO DE UVA Y VINO TRAEN LOS MISMOS BENEFÍCIOS PARA EL CORAZON, DICE USP La tesis de doctorado de la cardióloga y médica asistente del INCOR (Instituto del Corazón de la FM-USP), Silmara Regina Coimbra, comprobó que tanto el vino tinto cuanto el jugo de uva, provocan el mismo efecto sobre el endotélio (tejido que forra internamente los vasos sanguineos), aumentando su dilatación, frente a un estímulo. Según la cardióloga Silmara Coimbra, la principal conclusión de este trabajo, es que el jugo de uva puede proteger el indivíduo contra la enfermedad arterial coronaria sin los riesgos asociados al consumo de alcohol. BENEFICIOS DEL JUGO DE UVA La tradición atribuye al jugo de uva las más elogiosas expresiones como: sangre vegetal, leche vegetal y seiva viva . El jugo de uva contiene más calorias que la leche, una cierta analogia que puede ser llevada más lejos: la composición del jugo de uva muestra sorprendentes semejanzas con la de la leche materna. Es, pues, un alimento privilegiado para los períodos de "reconstrucción de la fatiga, De la anemia, de la convalescencia". El azúcar del jugo de uva está compuesto por glucosa e frutosa, es directamente asimilable, no exige ningún esfuerzo a los órganos digestivos, y es por tal razón aconsejable para la alimentación de los enfermos atacados por la fiebre. Del punto de vista terapeutico, se trata de uno de los más preciosos jugos. El jugo de uva es estimulador de las funciones hepáticas, constituyendo la base de remedios farmaceuticos para el hígado (esta función es desempeñada no solo por el jugo de uva, sino también por la uva y hojas de la parra). Para mantener las arterias jóvenes, tome jugo de uva diariamente. Investigaciones realizadas en la Universidad de Florida revelan que las sustancias químicas encontradas en las uvas ayudan a dilatar las arterias y en consecuencia, pueden reducir la presión sanguinea. El secreto de las uvas y del jugo de uva en el combate al envejecimiento es simple y poderoso: las uvas contienen 20 antioxidantes conocidos, que funcionan en conjunto para combatir los radicales libres que promueven las enfermedades y el envejecimiento de acuerdo con investigadores de la Universidad de Califórnia, en Davis. Los antioxidantes se encuentran en las cáscaras y semillas y cuanto más vibrante es el color de la cáscara, mayor su poder antioxidante, lo que significa que las uvas rojas y rosadas y sus jugos serian los mas poderosos. La uva roja posee alto contenido del antioxidante quercetina. La cáscara de uva contiene resveratrol, que comprobadamente inhibe el agrupamento y aumenta el colesterol HDL (colesterol bueno). Los antioxidantes presentes en los jugos de uva tienen actividades anticoagulantes, inhiben la oxidación del colesterol HDL y dilatan los vasos sanguineos.

El plátano es una fruta de agradable sabor que gusta a todos. Debido a su contenido de azúcares naturales, en combinación con su fibra, conforma una gran fuente de energía. Está comprobado que la ingesta de dos plátanos es suficiente para realizar un arduo trabajo durante una hora y media, es por ello que el plátano es la fruta por excelencia de los mejores atletas a nivel mundial. Además, debemos reconocer que esta maravillosa fruta cuenta también con otras propiedades, las cuales traen grandes beneficios para nuestra salud, por lo cual es indispensable incluirla en nuestra alimentación diaria.Por ejemplo: Alivia los síntomas pre-menstruales: Al contener vitamina B6, el plátano estabiliza los niveles de glucosa en la sangre, que pueden afectar dichos síntomas. Al consumir uno o dos plátanos durante ese periódo de tiempo no será necesario recurrir al uso de las píldoras. Ayuda a combatir la anemia: El plátano estimula la producción de hemoglobina de la sangre debido a su alto contenido de hierro. Evita el estreñimiento: Para ayudar a restablecer el normal funcionamiento intestinal se debe incluir en nuestra alimentación diaria el consumo de plátanos, además de otras frutas que contengan fibra. Regula el sistema nervioso: Por su gran contenido de vitamina B el plátano actúa positivamente sobre los nervios. Contra la picadura de mosquitos: Para aliviar la inflamación e hinchazón producida por esta picadura, es recomendable frotarnos la zona afectada con la parte interna de la cáscara de plátano. El resultado es extraordinario. Para reducir las verrugas: Los especialistas en medicina alternativa aconsejan para estos casos aplicar, sobre el área a tratar, la parte interior de la cáscara de plátano y sujetarla cuidadosamente con una venda o esparadrapo. Para aquellas personas que sufren de depresión: El plátano contiene triptofano, una proteína que el organismo convierte en serotonina, sustancia química conocida por sus efectos relajantes y que influye positivamente en el estado anímico.

LA MENOPAUSIA La Menopausia o la "Segunda Adolescencia" es la época de mayor crecimiento espiritual en la mujer y nos ayuda a entender que la felicidad depende de nosotras mismas. Es el momento de encontrarnos con nuestro YO, de aprender a conocer lo que realmente nos gusta como por ejemplo, cursos de literatura, pintura, o música, yoga, reuniones con las amigas para "filosofar sobre la vida" o solo para tejer, clases de baile o montar en bicicleta, escribir un libro de cocina o una novela secreta, en fin, es momento de hacer eso que siempre soñaste.

INFARTO FEMENINO Paso, entonces a resumirles algunos puntos:

1. Tengan en cuenta que sus síntomas probablemente no se parecerán en nada a los que padecen los hombres. Yo, por ejemplo, sentí el dolor en el esternón y la quijada. Se dice que muchas más mujeres que hombres mueren en su primer (y último) ataque cardíaco porque no identifican los síntomas y/o los confunden con los de una indigestión. Entonces, toman un digestivo y luego se van a la cama esperando que la molestia desaparezca durante la noche. También, porque -por razones culturales- las mujeres estamos acostumbradas a tolerar el dolor y la incomodidad más que los hombres. Queridas amigas: Quizá sus síntomas no sean iguales a los míos, pero, por favor, no pierdan el tiempo. LLAMEN a la AMBULANCIA, si sienten que su cuerpo experimenta algo 'extraño'. Cada quien conoce el estado natural (normal) de su cuerpo. Más vale una 'falsa emergencia' a no atreverse a llamar y perder la vida...

2. Noten que dije 'llamen a los Paramédicos/Ambulanc ia'. AMIGAS, el tiempo es importante, no traten de manejar ustedes ni dejen que sus esposos o familiares las lleven al hospital.Ademá s de que nadie está en condiciones de manejar sin que los nervios lo traicionen, sus síntomas pueden agravarse camino al hospital y complicar las cosas. Tampoco es recomendable Llamar AL DOCTOR para que venga a la casa. Además de perder minutos preciosos, pocos médicos llevan en su carro el equipo 'salvavidas' necesario en estos casos; la ambulancia, sí está totalmente equipada. Principalmente, tienen el oxígeno que necesitarás de inmediato. En todo caso, el hospital notificará a tu doctor después.

3. No crean que no pueden padecer un ataque cardíaco porque su colesterol es normal o 'nunca han tenido problemas cardíacos'. Se ha descubierto que el colesterol por sí solo (a menos que sea excesivo) raramente es la causa de un ataque cardíaco. Los ataques al corazón son el resultado de un stress prolongado que hace que nuestro sistema segregue toda clase de hormonas dañinas que inflaman las arterias y tejido cardíaco. Por otro lado, las mujeres que están entrando en la menopausia o ya la pasaron, pierden la protección que les brindaban los estrógenos, por lo que corren igual riesgo de padecer problemas cardíacos que los hombres.

ESPARRAGOS PARA EL CANCER Segun el descubrimiento de Richard R.Vensal, D.D.S. dice que los espárragos pueden curar el cáncer. El estudio "Los elementos de material médica", editado en 1854 por un profesor de la Universidad de Pensilvania declara que los espárragos se utilizaban como un remedio popular para los cálculos del riñón. Este profesor en 1739 se refirió a experimentos en el poder de los espárragos para disolver cálculos. Hay muchos otros casos pero el establecimiento medico interfiere en que obtengamos los registros. Por lo tanto hago un llamado a los lectores para divulgar estas buenas noticias y ayudarnos a coleccionar un gran número de casos que abrumen a los médicos escépticos sobre este remedio natural e increíblemente sencillo. Para el tratamiento los espárragos se deben cocinar antes de consumir, y de ahí que los espárragos enlatados son tan Buenos como los frescos. Me escribo con dos enlatadotas de espárragos, Giant Giant y Stokely, y estoy satisfecho que estas marcas no contienen pesticidas ni conservantes. "Pongan los espárragos cocidos en una licuadora y logren un pure, almacénelos en el refrigerador. Dele al paciente 4 cucharadas llenas al día, de mañana y de noche. Generalmente en 2 a 4 semanas los pacientes tendrán reacciones positivas. Se puede diluir en agua y tomarlo como una bebida fría o caliente. La dosis sugerida se basa en experiencia pasada, pero ciertamente dosis mayores no causarán daño y en algunos casos pueden ser necesarias." "Aquello que cura puede también prevenir". "Hay muchos informes de recuperación tanto por consumir espárragos crudos como cocidos. Houston escribió que "el jugo crudo o licuado" puede ser una forma más efectiva" (citado en Hess, 1999, Pág. 138)Si yo tuviera cáncer comería tantos espárragos como pudiera, cocinados (preferiblemente al vapor) o crudos, sólidos o líquidos." Los espárragos están repletos de nutrientes y bajos en calorías, sodio y colesterol. Es una fuente excelente de ácido fólico y de vitamina C, tiamina, y vitamina B6. Los espárragos no contienen grasa ni colesterol. Es una fuente importante de potasio y muchos micronutrientes. De acuerdo al Instituto Nacional de cáncer, los espárragos son el alimento más elevado en glutathione, uno de los enemigos más potentes contra el cáncer citado como "el más potente anticancerígeno y antioxidante") Además los espárragos contienen rutín en grado elevado, que fortalece los vasos sanguíneos.
