2)Don't eat fruits immediately - Immediately eating fruits after meals will cause stomach to be bloated with air. Therefore take fruit 1-2 hr after meal or 1 hr before meal.

3)Don't drink tea - Because tea leaves contain a high content of acid. This substance will cause the Protein content in the food we consume to be hardened thus difficult to digest.

4)Don't loosen your belt - Loosening the belt after a meal will easily cause the intestine to be twisted &blocked.

5)Don't bathe - Bathing will cause the increase of blood flow to the hands, legs & body thus the amount of blood around the stomach will therefore decrease. This will weaken the digestive system in our stomach.

6)Don't walk about - People always say that after a meal walk a hundred steps and you will live till 99. In actual fact this is not true. Walking will cause the digestive system to be unable to absorb the nutrition from the food we intake.

7)Don't sleep immediately - The food we intake will not be able to digest properly. Thus will lead to gastric & infection in our intestine.

Hair vinyasas

Posted by GUILBERT RAJ P Friday, January 15, 2010 0 comments

My new hairdo: I want to have my hair in a way that I don't have to do "hair vinyasas" how B called it after so many poses. Hair must be bound in a way that allows it to lie on the back and to stand on the head, the top of the head and the back must be free of hair knots or barrettes......I hope my braid remains for one practice so that I do not have to adjust my hair from time to time anymore.....
An Ashtanga practice becomes easier
- in a warm room
- in the evening
- when the breath is used as a guide
- when I practice slowly
- when I don't go to my limits
- when I take some extra breaks, i.e. when in downward facing dog
- when practicing not correctly, i.e. not using the bandhas, not engaging the legs
- when I omit asanas and vinyasas
- when I am relaxed
- with music
- in a group of committed yogis and yoginis
- when well-rested
- with an empty stomach
- and usually a few kilos lighter
- with an opitimistic attitude
- visualization helps
- not to forget the supporting teachers
- a daily routine makes it easier to step on the mat
- after many years of practicing it

This was a brainstorming. Some points are surely a recommendation on days I feel weak, others not. There are endless ways to modify a practice.

I practiced slowly today (Mysore class). My back opens, it is an amazing feeling. I had focus and I engaged my muscles. The breath helped me......yeah, I feel good.

Antiphospholipid (AN-te-fos-fo-LIP-id) antibody syndrome (APS) is an autoimmune disorder. Autoimmune disorders occur when the immune system makes antibodies that attack and damage the body’s tissues or cells by mistake. Antibodies are a type of protein that the immune system usually makes to defend against infection.

In APS, the body mistakenly makes antibodies that attack phospholipids—a type of fat. Phospholipids are found in all living cells and cell membranes, including blood cells and the lining of blood vessels.

When antibodies attack phospholipids, they damage cells. This causes unwanted blood clots to form in the body’s arteries and veins. (These are the vessels that carry blood to your heart and body.)

Usually, blood clotting is a normal bodily process. Blood clots help seal small cuts or breaks and prevent you from losing too much blood. In APS, however, too much blood clotting can block blood flow and damage the body’s organs.


Some people have APS antibodies, but don’t ever have signs or symptoms of the disorder. The presence of APS antibodies, by itself, doesn’t mean that you have APS. To be diagnosed with APS, you must have APS antibodies and a history of health problems related to the disorder.

APS can lead to a number of health problems, such as stroke, heart attack, kidney damage, deep vein thrombosis (throm-BO-sis), pulmonary embolism (PULL-mun-ary EM-bo-lizm), or pregnancy-related problems.

Pregnancy-related problems may include multiple miscarriages, a miscarriage late in pregnancy, or a premature birth due to eclampsia. (Eclampsia, which follows preeclampsia, is a serious condition that causes seizures in pregnant women.)

Very rarely, some people who have APS develop many blood clots within weeks or months. This condition is called catastrophic antiphospholipid syndrome (CAPS).

People who have APS also are at higher risk for thrombocytopenia (THROM-bo-si-to-PE-ne-ah). This is a condition in which your blood has a low number of blood cells called platelets (PLATE-lets). This can lead to mild to serious bleeding.

In APS, thrombocytopenia occurs because the platelets are used up by the clotting process or because antibodies destroy them.

In some cases, APS can be fatal. This may occur due to large blood clots or blood clots in the heart, lungs, or brain.


APS can affect people of any age. However, it’s more common in women and people who have other autoimmune or rheumatic disorders, such as lupus. ("Rheumatic" refers to disorders that affect the joints, bones, or muscles.)

APS has no cure, but medicines can help prevent its complications. Medicines are used to stop blood clots from forming and keep existing clots from getting larger. Treatment for the disorder is long term.

If you have APS and another autoimmune disorder, it’s important to control that condition as well. When the other condition is controlled, APS may cause fewer problems.

coconut oil

Posted by GUILBERT RAJ P 1 comments
What is Virgin coconut oil ?

Virgin coconut oil is derived from fresh coconuts (rather than dried, as in copra). Most oils marketed as "virgin" are produced one of three ways:
1. Quick drying of fresh coconut meat which is then used to press out the oil.
2. Wet-milling (coconut milk). With this method the oil is extracted from fresh coconut meat without drying first. "Coconut milk" is expressed first by pressing. The oil is then further separated from the water. Methods which can be used to separate the oil from the water include boiling, fermentation, refrigeration, enzymes and mechanical centrifuge.
3. Wet-milling (direct micro expelling). In this process, the oil is extracted from fresh coconut meat after the adjustment of the water content, then the pressing of the coconut flesh results in the direct extraction of free-flowing oil.

Benefits of Virgin coconut oil
1 The oil promotes weight loss as well as weight maintenance
2 It provides a source of antimicrobial lipid
3 The oil does not interfere with functioning of the thyroid
4 It protects against heart disease
5 It helps prevent cancer
6 It is easy on the digestion system
7 It empowers the immune system
8 The oil does not contain cholesterol, thereby not increasing the cholesterol
level in the blood
9 Does not cause the stickiness of platelets that causes the formation of blood
10 The oil helps prevent bacterial, viral and fungal infections.
11 Coconut helps to prevent osteoporosis.
12 It helps in keeping diabetes under control
13 It is known to keep the skin soft when used externally

Here is what you should see for an Extra Virgin Coconut Oil :

  • Colorless and crystal clear.
  • Light, fresh coconut aroma
  • Natural Coconut taste
  • Quick absorption
  • No oily feel
  • Very light viscosity

Advantages :
  1. High purity: without refining.
  2. Used as food oil as well as in high-end formulations.
  3. Excellent in body care.
  4. Long shelf life.

TO lose weight
Do you consume virgin coconut oil but still don’t lose weight? So what could be the problem?
Many studies and facts have shown that virgin coconut oil is effective in helping to reduce body weight. It contains fewer calories than other fats and also has a group of fats known as Medium-Chain Triglycerides (MCT) that are used by the body as an instant source of energy.

MCTs are easily digested by the body and they don’t produce body fat. Hence, numerous studies and experiences in the past have led us to a conclusion that ifvirgin coconut oil is added consistently to a balanced diet, it shall show incredible results in weight loss. But, why there are still some people who complain that they just couldn’t lose weight after consumingvirgin coconut oil? Well, I say we have several possibilities here. There are some factors that could influence the weight loss results in this case:

1. How long have you consumed virgin coconut oil?
2. How old are you?
3. How are you, really?

The answers to these questions do influence the effectiveness and the performance of virgin coconut oil in your weight loss program. Many people don’t comprehend this fact and they give up consuming virgin coconut oil in a short time, because they don’t see a significant loss in their weights. I say this is a mistake.

The first thing you should consider if you want to see great results with virgin coconut oil is the period of time you have spent consuming this oil. For most people, it takes 3-4 months to lose weight significantly by taking 3 tablespoons of virgin coconut oil daily. For elderly people, it could take longer to gain the same effects as youngsters. That is because as you grow older, your body is used to a certain routine that it refuses any instant change. So, don’t expect a great loss in weight by consumingvirgin coconut oil in a term of weeks! It takes longer than that, so be patient…

The problem for most people (including you, perhaps!) is they don't like the taste of the oil. This of course, makes it hard to regularly add the oil to your diet. Actually, if you know some simple virgin coconut oil recipes, it's easy to overcome this problem

OK, back to the factors that influence your weight loss results. The third factor is your condition. Your health condition and the medicines you take could also slow down the effects of virgin coconut oil to your body. Try taking your body temp… is it low? If it is, then there could be a metabolism problem. But, if you continue combiningvirgin coconut oil with a reasonable eating plan, this metabolism problem shall disappear in time. But, this means it will take longer time for youto lose weight.
That’s why you have to be consistent and patient with virgin coconut oil to see incredible results in weight los

It is known to everyone that cigarette smoking is harmful and
addictive. But very few know the risks of cigarette addiction.
Smoking inflicts body with many irreversible damages and reduces the
human life span by 25 years.

Effects of Smoking on Body:

Heart : Smoking is the biggest risk factor for all heart diseases.
It accelerates the process of fat deposition in the inner walls of
arteries (atherosclerosis). It increases blood pressure and heart
rate. Not only these, smoking increases tendency for the blood to
clot. It reduces the capacity of a person to exercise. (Exercises
always keep heart healthy).

Lungs : Smoking destroys small hairs present in upper parts of
airways. In normal persons these hairs protect lungs from germs,
dust and other harmful particles. When this natural cleaning system
is damaged germs, dust, smoke and other harmful chemicals enter
lungs causing infection, cough and lung cancer. The air sacs of
lungs (alveoli) get permanently damaged causing difficulty in

Digestive system: Smoking causes heart burn ,delays healing of
peptic ulcers, increases risk of crohn's disease and formation of
gall stones. It affects liver and increases chances of stomach

Legs: Smoking affects blood vessels of legs causing chronic pain in
legs. This may further progress to cause gangrene of toes or feet.

Eyes: The sensitive blood vessels of eye are easily damaged by
smoking. This causes blood shot appearance of eyes and itching. In
heavy smokers it may lead to degeneration and loss of eyesight.
Smokers are at an increased risk of cataracts.

Skin : Due to smoking the skin is deprived of oxygen and it loses
its texture. An average smoker looks 5 years older than his healthy
non smoking counterparts. The skin loses its healthy glow and takes
on a yellowish-gray cast. The more cigarettes smoked, the worse skin
will look. Wrinkles start appearing very quickly as smoking affects
elastic tissues of skin.

Bones: It accelerates the process of osteoporosis

Cancer: Smoking causes cancer of lungs, larynx, oral cavity,
pharynx, oesophagus and bladder. Tobacco smoke contains more than 60
substances which cause cancer. 87% lung cancer death occurs due to

Reproductive system: Smoking reduces fertility in both men and women.

In women: Smoking imbalances estrogen hormone in women. It causes
dryness of vagina and reduces blood flow to genital organs. Women
who smoke can get diseases of fallopian tubes and their egg
production is affected. Smoking can cause abortion. It accelerates
aging process and can cause early menopause.

The growth of baby retards when mother smokes in pregnancy. It
affects the brain development of baby and reduces IQ. This happens
even when mother is a passive smoker. The chances of miscarriage,
premature birth and fetal death increase.

In men: Smoking impairs erections and can become a reason for
erectile dysfunction. It affects semen and also reduces sperm count
and impairs sperm motility. But these are reversed after stopping

Hence quit smoking. Quitting smoking has immediate as well as long-
term benefits for you and your loved ones
