Secrets of healthy living in a hostile world

We need to bring about the beneficial remedies in modern medicine into medical care that is inexpensive, safe and effective. But vested interests in modern medicine are scuttling every effort with an old but effective whip “there is no evidence base”

“The greatest truths are the simplest, and so are the greatest men”— JC & AW Hare

When one ponders over the multitude of risk factors in and around us in this hostile world, one wonders as to how we are alive at all. Medical claptrap informs us day in and day out about the multitude of potions—chemical drugs, surgeries, special foods, tonics, etc to keep us alive. The truth is that most, if not all, of those heavily advertised items damage the system further than helping us. The truth is that there is a very complicated, yet simple system inside each of the one hundred thousand billion cells inside the human body to compute all the internal and external inputs through multiple sources to eventually put in place two fascinating energy systems, a low energy and high energy systems, to keep us going.  

Let us first examine this nature’s computer inside every cell which existed for nearly a billion and half years before the first nerves ever appeared in a jellyfish. It took another half a billion years for cranial nerves and brain to appear in organisms including man. The myth that the brain and the nervous systems alone keep us going has to give place to a more holistic view that there are many other important systems that help keep man alive. Then we will progress further in our understanding of human physiology and pathology. Life is a complicated system of individual cell functions in the body in an interdependent manner to keep us alive and healthy. If the ten thousand odd proteins that are present inside each one of the trillions of cells in our bodies do not work well we will have disease states. For recovery from any illness, body cells will have to function normally again.  

Our approach in the “so-called” evidence based modern medicine is to try and correct those changes (not knowing what they are) in disease states using chemicals or surgery. As a quick-fix, apparently, they help some people some times but all of them damage some part of the human system almost always, sometimes as late as five years after the event. One good example is a painkiller trasylol which is now known to kill the recipient as late as five years after he/she had it! What happened to another pain killer wyoxx is now common knowledge. These measures have now resulted in considerable misery for mankind. To quote the most authentic scientific body of the USA: “The National Academy’s data attributes 100,000 deaths per year to physicians’ errors, added to well over 100,000 deaths due to severe drug interactions and another 100,000 fatalities from hospital-based-infections. (For a detailed analysis, see Death By Medicine, by Gary S Null, et a)”. This is from a country with less than one-third the population of India. Thank God, we do not have statistics like this for India. 

What is the remedy? We must get to know the true physiology of cell function and try and see how we could restore that in the unlikely event of disease in a more natural way rather than inflicting chemical and surgical damage to the cells where possible. The fruitless research of modern medicine is based on statistical science and not true hard science. The “failure of millions of dollars spent on AIDS vaccine, failure of interferon as a wonder drug for cancer management with the latter still eluding a cure despite billions being wasted on cancer research and cancer screening (the latter has been shown to be useless and dangerous), and the ravages caused by drugs like Thalidomide and Thorazine,” are there for all of us to see. Reports are pouring in now to show that Thalidomide was used in pregnant women in New Zealand those days as guinea pigs for testing the drug, resulting in many monsters being born there.

We need to arrange an urgent marriage between the beneficial remedies in modern medicine “like the excellent emergency care methods, brilliant surgical successes, time tested and harmless pharmaceuticals as also the newer life style changes” with the best and scientifically authenticated multitude of methods in many other systems of medicine into a judicious integrated system of medical care that is inexpensive, safe and effective under all circumstances. Unfortunately, the vested interests in modern medicine are scuttling every effort in this field by hitting those efforts with an old but, effective whip “there is no evidence base” in other systems of medical care. This is the biggest lie in the world.  

Let us examine how we can use natural methods to get the damaged cells back to normalcy. The ten thousand odd proteins in each cell are functionally better than our supercomputers. They have two energy systems—the Low energy system and the High energy system. Initially, the proteins process all the information they collect from the body as also the outside world into a low energy information system which primes the other proteins to a high energy functional system that could power the body as a whole. In this milieu there are certain specific proteins that do the directing or chaperoning job very effectively. One such chaperone protein is the Heat Shock Protein, HSP 70. It is otherwise called Stress Responsive Protein (SRP 70) as it responds to every kind of stress in the cells.

The HSP 70 protein is supervised by the HSP 70 gene. HSP 70 protein could be re-primed by heating the cell to 47 degree centigrade but, that can never be done in the human body. The other method is to use some kind of natural energy to do the job. In health the cell uses the energy coming from the main source, sunlight, as also the magnetic energy generated by lightening throwing a halo of Schuman energy field around the earth. (Schumann effect) Since all proteins are but carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen and oxygen as in the DNA along with amino-acids that come from food. The electromagnetic energy used by the cell proteins which is then transduced to fire the mitochondria inside every cell to produce energy needed for life. 

Glen Gordon was one of NIH’s brilliant young scientists, 4th in hierarchy at one stage. He was a pioneer in this field of trying to regenerate the damaged (ischaemic) cells back to normal. This made the American Medical Association to file a law suit against him, which did not materialize at the end. He lost his entire grant support, though. He would not relent. He has come up with a small Pulsed Electro-Magnetic Field (PEMF) generator powered by a battery to stimulate and up-regulate the depressed HSP 70 protein and thereby regenerate the cells again. My own initial enthusiasm with this toy of his is exciting. This is not the right forum to disclose such serious research data as it has to be done through a recognized scientific publication. Nonetheless, the results are an opening for us to look more deeply into many such natural methods of making the sick cells (individuals) to regain their strength and health without any long-term detriment to the owner in the bargain. 

The marriage between the best in both worlds, as suggested above, is our only solution in this dangerous state in which modern medical claptrap and statistical science have landed us. We need a holistic approach to human, nay, all problems of this world.

The great doctor's idea of bringing about the marriage between the best is both is the "lovliest thing" to use his last quote. His quotes are really apt!
Having audited statutory as well as Pharmaceutical Price Contol Order costs certification audits of major MNC Pharma majors as well as domestic cos, I can confirm that Dr. Hegde is bang on.
The GOI has an Ayush - Ayurveda, Unani and Homeopathy - policy at the Union Health ministry, but none of their treatment is accepted by the IRDA for Mediclaim. This lacuna needs to be plugged, it can bring down medical treatment costs considerably.

ED notice against Baba Ramdev's aid Balkrishna for violating forex rules

Balkrishna, who has been charged by the CBI for alleged violations of the Passport Act, is also facing the ED's heat with regard to money laundering charges on account of travels and investments made abroad

New Delhi: The Enforcement Directorate (ED) has slapped a show cause notice against a firm related to Yoga guru Baba Ramdev's close aide Balkrishna for alleged violations of forex rules, reports PTI.
Balkrishna, who has been booked under the criminal provisions of money laundering recently by the agency, is a co-director in a food firm which has been alleged to have contravened the Foreign Exchange Management Act (FEMA).
"The agency has issued a FEMA notice involving an amount of Rs4.36 crore and a reply has been sought from the firm and office bearers," agency sources said.
The notice has asked the firm, Balkrishna and others to reply to the agency in a fortnight's time about the alleged irregularities.
Balkrishna, who has been charged by the CBI for alleged violations of the Passport Act, is also facing the ED's heat with regard to money laundering charges on account of travels and investments made abroad using the passport which the CBI alleges is forged.
The ED registered the case under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) acting on the CBI FIR which had charged Balkrishna with violations of the Passport Act.
The agency suspects that Balkrishna, who has been looking after various trusts run by Ramdev, could have parked the alleged laundered money abroad using the forged passport as claimed by CBI.
The ED may also move to arrest Balkrishna, who walked out of jail on bail on 17th August. He was sent to jail last month after he was arrested by CBI for allegedly submitting fake documents for obtaining Indian passport.
The CBI had registered a case of cheating and criminal conspiracy against Balkrishna on 23rd July last year for allegedly procuring fake degree and violating Section 12 of Indian Passport Act by furnishing fake and forged High School and graduation certificates to the passport authorities for obtaining the document.


In US, 1994 Honda Accord is car thieves' favourite heist

Consumer Affairs, a US-based consumer news and advocacy site says the annual list of most-stolen vehicles is dominated by models from the 1990s

If you are worried that car thieves are coveting your shiny new luxury car perhaps you should be more concerned about the other car in your garage, if it happens to be a 1994 Honda Accord. It turns out that's the car thieves really want.
Each year the National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB) picks its “Hot Wheels,” its list of the 10 most-stolen vehicles in the United States for the previous year. The report examines vehicle theft data submitted by law enforcement to the National Crime Information Center (NCIC) and determines the vehicle make, model and model year most reported stolen in 2011.
The remarkable thing about the list is most of the cars are 1990s vintage. The newest model is a 2006 Ford pickup, which is the third most desirable vehicle in the eyes of a thief. Why isn't your 2010 Toyota Prius or 2011 Volkswagen Passat on the list?
It's not that they aren't nice vehicles, but the reason a thief takes a car is usually to strip it down and sell the parts. Older vehicles are more valuable because there are more vehicles like them on the road that need parts. An increasing number of stolen cars are being resold -- intact -- overseas.
The top 10 “hot cars” were evenly split in 2011 with five belonging to foreign brands and five to U.S. automakers. Most popular models among the domestic brands were Ford, Dodge and Chevrolet pickup trucks each holding one spot with the Dodge Caravan and Ford Explorer rounding out the domestic models.
Here's the complete list:
1. 1994 Honda Accord
2. 1998 Honda Civic
3. 2006 Ford Pickup (Full Size)
4. 1991 Toyota Camry
5. 2000 Dodge Caravan
6. 1994 Acura Integra
7. 1999 Chevrolet Pickup (Full Size)
8. 2004 Dodge Pickup (Full Size)
9. 2002 Ford Explorer
10. 1994 Nissan Sentra
Car thefts have declined in recent years and NICB says 2011 appears to uphold that trend. Preliminary 2011 FBI crime statistics indicate a 3.3 percent reduction from the 737,142 thefts recorded in 2010. Vehicle thefts have not been this low since 1967. And while older models tend to dominate the list of most stolen vehicles, that doesn't mean your late model car is safe.
“While overall thefts continue to decline, we are seeing a trend toward increases in the thefts of late model vehicles -- ones that are theoretically harder to steal due to sophisticated key code technology,” said NICB President and CEO Joe Wehrle. “Today’s vehicle thieves are typically professional criminals who have figured out how to get the key code for a specific vehicle, have a replacement key made, and steal the vehicle within a matter of days.”
NICB says it is aware of nearly 300 thefts that took place in the first three months of this year in which thieves possessed replacement keys using illegally obtained key codes. The group says many thefts can be prevented by simply locking your car and taking your keys. More sophisticated and expensive deterrents include a warning system, an immobilizing device and a tracking device.
