  • Story with a moral

    The teacher gave an assignment to her fifth grade class : Get their parents to tell them a story with a moral at the end of it. The next day, the kids came back and, one by one, began to tell their stories. There were all the regular types of stuff: spilled milk and pennies saved. But then the teacher realized that only Janie was left.

    “Janie, do you have a story to share?’

  • The Blood Sugar Solution

     The Day is Coming When Doctors Finally Admit…

    “Sorry, Drugs and Insulin Won’t Solve
    Your Blood Sugar Problems After All.”

    It’s time you knew the real truth: managing blood sugar with drugs or insulin is like
    mopping up a flooded floor while the faucet’s still overflowing.

    Meds don’t fix the core problem. Studies now show they can make it worse!

    Blood sugar drugs work great to keep drug company profits healthy, but as for your
    health — well, that’s a different story altogether.

    No matter how many meds you take to control it, the complications from high blood
    sugar can kill you. Diabetics still die six years earlier than non-diabetics on average, and
    they may be the most medicated people on earth!

    Here’s Something Else You May Not Know–
    It’s Not Just Diabetics Who Should Worry

    Today, 1 in 2 Americans suffer the hidden effects of a blood sugar disorder that
    carries with it potentially devastating health consequences.

    And if you’re overweight or have even slightly elevated blood sugar, I hate to break it to
    you: you’re probably one of them.

    This metabolic condition, called diabesity, begins with the first signs of insulin
    resistance. Ignore it at your peril, because when left untreated it’s the #1 cause of
    obesity, Type 2 diabetes, heart disease, cancer, stroke, dementia, and premature death
    in America.

    Incredibly, most doctors still take a wait-and-see approach when your blood sugar starts
    to inch up.

    That’s their first mistake….

    Then they make a bigger mistake by treating your blood sugar with drugs that don’t cure anything and often make your problems worse.

    There’s A Better Way to Restore Your Health and I’m Thrilled to Share it With You…

    Now there’s an easy, natural way to reverse high blood sugar — even Type 2 diabetes itself — and actually eliminate the root causes behind your weight gain, fatigue, mental fog, depression, low resistance to colds and flu. No drugs needed. None!

    Pounds melt away even if you’ve been overweight for years. Energy soars. It feels like a cloud is lifted from your life.

    More importantly, you will finally cut down to size the leading cause of diabetes, heart disease, Alzheimer’s and premature death today, in ways no prescription drug can ever match.

    Click Here and you can learn all about this natural healing miracle from my good friend and colleague Dr. Mark Hyman, Founder of the famed UltraWellness Center in Lenox, Massachusetts and the world’s leading Functional Medicine pioneer. It’s called:

    THE BLOOD SUGAR SOLUTION
    The UltraHealthy Program for Losing Weight, Preventing Disease and FeelingGreat Now!

    The Blood Sugar Solution is based on some of the most cutting-edge research of our time, but Dr. Hyman makes it simple.

    He begins with a series of self-quizzes that let you “look under the hood” and determine which imbalances in your body are causing your blood sugar problems.

    The quizzes follow the same proven approach Dr. Hyman uses in his own practice. They’re based on decades of clinical experience with over 10,000 patients. Using them is practically like consulting with the doctor himself.

    Your answers then steer you to a personalized set of dietary, lifestyle, and supplementation recommendations that you implement, one at a time, over the course of the 8-week program.

    This process roots out and eliminates the hidden causes behind your blood sugar problems. By the time you’re done, you’ll have rebalanced the core systems in your body that will bring about normal blood sugar, ideal weight, and true vitality for life — a state of health Dr. Hyman calls “UltraWellness.”

    You don’t just mask symptoms. You create health. Illness, disease and fat go away, practically as a side effect!

    If That Sounds Simple, There’s A Good Reason Why: It Is!

    One more thing: you can forget everything you’ve been told about “inheriting” your weight problems or high blood sugar. Truth is, you’re not stuck with it.

    New genetic research shows that insulin resistance is almost 100% preventable and
    curable — even if diabetes has run in your family for generations.

    So with The Blood Sugar Solution, you really can…

    *  Pass every blood sugar test with flying colors, naturally

    *  Melt away the extra fat and end junk food cravings forever

    *  Feel years younger with energy that surges through your veins

    *  Lift your spirits and get off the emotional “roller coaster” for good

    *  Take a huge step in preventing diabetes, heart disease, Alzheimer’s, and cancer

    *  And even eliminate the need for blood sugar, cholesterol, and blood pressure
    meds altogether

    Just  Click Here to be fast-forwarded to the future of
    healthy weight loss and perfect blood sugar for life!

    * You’ll get the proof of how you can restore healthy blood sugar, reverse diabesity and
    even cure Type 2 diabetes without drugs — and without turning your life upside down…

    * You’ll learn how you can root out the real causes of your weight gain and disrupted
    blood sugar metabolism — and eliminate them at their source…

    * You’ll discover the surprisingly few “ingredients” you’ll need to grow healthy — and how
    they’ll leave you brimming with health in ways medication can never match.

    Frankly, it could be years before the medical establishment catches up with Dr. Hyman’s
    breakthrough approach to blood sugar problems, and who can afford to wait?

     The Day is Coming When Doctors Finally Admit… “Sorry, Drugs and Insulin Won’t Solve Your Blood Sugar Problems After All.” It’s time you knew the real truth: managing blood sugar with drugs or insulin is like mopping up a flooded floor while the faucet’s still overflowing.

  • The Good old days

    WHY OUR GREAT GRANDPARENTS WERE SO  MUCH HAPPIER THAN WE ARE –
    Have you ever wondered why our great  grandparents had such fond memories of their  youth?What they  did must’ve been okay because even the pope was  involved (see below). Nevertheless, I’m  surprised they remembered anything at all !!!Forget  Tums & Tylenol – Forget Aleve & Benedryl  -Just take a look at the cool stuff  they had  then!
    A bottle of Bayer’s  ‘Heroin’.
    Between 1890 and 1910 heroin was sold  as a non-addictive substitute for morphine.
    It was also used to treat children  suffering with a strong cough.

    Coca Wine, anyone?
    Metcalf’s Coca Wine was one of a huge variety of wines with cocaine on the market. Everybody used to say that it would make you happy and it would also work as a medicinal treatment.
    Mariani Wine.
    Mariani wine (1875) was the  most  famous Coca wine of it’s time.  Pope Leo XIII used to carry one bottle  with him all the time. He awarded Angelo Mariani  (the producer) with a Vatican gold  medal.
    Maltine.
    Produced by the Maltine Manufacturing  Company of New York . It was suggested that you  should take a full glass with or after every  meal. Children should only take half a  glass.
    A paperweight:
    A paperweight promoting C.F.  Boehringer & Soehne ( Mannheim , Germany ).  They were proud of being the biggest producers  in the world of products containing Quinine and  Cocaine.
    Opium for   Asthma:
    At 40% alcohol plus 3 grams of opium  per tablet. It didn’t  cure you… but you didn’t care!

    Cocaine  Tablets  (1900).
    All stage  actors, singers, teachers and preachers had to  have them for a maximum performance.  Great to ‘smooth’ the  voice.
    Cocaine drops for  toothache.
    Very popular for children in 1885.  Not only did they relieve the pain, they made  the children very happy!
    Opium for newborns.
    I’m sure this would make them sleep  well.  (not only the Opium, but also the  46% alcohol)
    It’s no wonder they  called, “The  Good Old Days”.

  • Kedarnath Temple

    Kedarnath Mandir (Hindi: केदारनाथ मंदिर, Kēdārnāth Maṃdir) is one of the holiest Hindu temples dedicated to Lord Shiva and is located atop the Garhwal Himalayan range near the Mandakini river in Kedarnath, Uttarakhand in India. Due to extreme weather conditions, the temple is open only between the end of April to Kartik Purnima (the autumn full moon). During the winters, the murtis (idols) from Kedarnath temple are brought to Ukhimath and worshipped there for six months.

    In this region Lord Shiva is worshipped as Kedarnath, the ‘Lord of Kedar Khand’, the historical name of the region. This temple is a Paadal Petra Sthalam (the 275 Holy Abodes of Shiva on the continent), praised by the Tamil Nayanars saints in the 6th-9th century CE.

    The temple is not directly accessible by road and has to be reached by a 14 km uphill trek from Gaurikund . The temple is believed to have been built by Adi Sankaracharya  and is one of the twelve Jyotirlingas, the holiest Hindu shrines of Shiva. The older temple existed from the times of Mahabharata, when the Pandavas are supposed to have pleased Shiva by doing penance in Kedarnath. The temple is also one of the four major sites in India’s Chota Char Dham pilgrimage of Northern Himalayas.

    Temple and significance

    Statue of Adi Shankara at his Samādhi Mandir in Kedarnath

    The actual temple is an impressive stone edifice of unknown date. During the war between the Kauravas and Pandavas, the kith and kin of the Pandavas were killed; in order to absolve themselves of this sin, the Pandavas undertook a pilgrimage. But Lord Vishweshwara was away in Kailasa in the Himalayas. On learning this, the Pandavas left Kashi. They reached the Himalayas via Hardwar. They saw Lord Shankar from a distance. But Lord Shankara hid from them. Then Dharmaraj said: “Oh, Lord, You have hidden yourself from our sight because we have sinned. But, we will seek You out somehow. Only after we take your Darshan would our sins be washed away. This place, where You have hidden Yourself will be known as Guptkashi and become a famous shrine.”

    From Guptakashi (Rudraprayag), the Pandavas went ahead till they reached Gaurikund in the Himalayas valleys. They wandered there in search of Lord Shankara. While doing so Nakul and Sahadev found a he-buffalo. It was unique to look at.

    Then! Bheema went after the buffalo with his mace. The buffalo was clever and Bheema could not catch it. But Bheema managed to hit the buffalo with his mace. The buffalo had its face hidden in a crevice-in the earth. Bheema started to pull it by its tail. In this tug-of war, the face of the buffalo went straight to Nepal, leaving its hind part in Kedar. The face of the buffalo is known as Pashupatinath in Nepal.

    On this hind part of Mahesha, a glorious JyotirLinga appeared. Lord Shankara appeared from this great light. He appeared before the pandavas. By getting a Darshan of Lord Shankar, the pandavas were absolved of their sins. The Lord told the Pandavas, “From now on, I will remain here as a triangular shaped JyotirLinga. By taking a Darshan of Kedarnath, devotees would attain piety”. Near Kedarnath, there are many symbols of the Pandavas Raja Pandu died here, when he tried to make love to Madri. This place is famous as Pandukeshwar. The tribals here perform a dance called “Pandav Nritya”. The mountain top where the Pandavas went to Swarga, is known as “Swargarohini”. When Darmaraja was leaving for Swarga, one of his fingers fell on the earth. At that place, Dharmaraj installed a Shiva Linga, which is the size of the thumb.

    To gain Mashisharupa, Shankara and Bheema fought with maces. Bheema was struck with remorse. He started to massage Lord Shankara’s body with ghee. In memory of this event, even today, this triangular Shiva JyotirLinga is massaged with ghee. Shankara is worshipped here in this manner. Water and Bel leaves are used for worship.

    When Nar-nrayan went to Badrika village and started the worship of Parthiva, Shiva appeared before them. A few days later, a pleased Shiva granted them some boons. Nar-narayan wished that for the welfare of the humanity, Shiva should remain there in his original form. Granting their wish, in the snow-clad Himalayas, in a place called Kedar, Mahesha himself stayed there as a Jyoti. Here, He is known as Kedareshwara.

    By visiting Kedareshwar, sorrows do not come even in dreams. By worshipping Shambara (Kedareshwar) Pandavas were rid of all their sorrows. Badri-Keshwar’s darshan rids one of the material ties. Whoever gives Dan (alms) at Kedareshwar, just gets assimilated into Shivaroopa.

    Srimat Shankaracharya praised Lord Shiva thus:

    Oh Lord, who resides in the great heights of Himalayas, oh Lord, thou, who art worshipped forever by saints, Hermits, Demons, Gods, Yakshas and Maha Nag (giant snakes), I bow and offer millions of Pranams. As a matter of fact, as one enters the main temple, the first hall contains statues of the five Pandava brothers, Lord Krishna, Nandi, the vehicle of Shiva and Virabhadra, one of the greatest guards of Shiva. An unusual feature of the temple is the head of a man carved in the triangular stone fascia of the temple. Such a head is seen carved in another temple nearby constructed on the site where the marriage of Shiva and Parvati was held. No specific family of pujaris supervise rituals at Kedarnath, where the focus is on veneration of the stone lingam that rests in the inner sanctum of the temple.

    Behind the temple is the samādhi mandir of Adi Sankara.

    Tamil saints Nayanars of 1st century like Sundarar and Sambanthar praised the deity in their hymns famous by the name of Tevaram.
