Imagine the Stress on our Mother Earth !

By |2019-09-08T16:12:41+05:30September 16th, 2010|Uncategorized|

and the stress imposed on our mother earth!
The concentrated impluse and the thrust we impose through high-rised buildings are creating the inner turmoil in the tender layers of earth!
Not only buildings..the more we crave for material comforts, we byproduce a lot more wastages and toxins on this planet. The result would be the powdered sand dunes and the life-less deserts soon!!

Advise shall be like a salt in the food!!

By |2019-09-08T16:12:41+05:30September 16th, 2010|Advise-not, Be good parent|

Once upon a time there was a town where no salt was invented yet!
When it came to market for the first time, the price was too high and equivalent to Gold!!
A royal cook found it was good and started putting it a little in the food.
When the King found it was tasty and knew the secret, they started buying hills of salt rose up like mountains!! When the cook started pouring rathals of salt in to everyone’s meal, there was only salt and salt and was no meal in to it!! When it became the habit and fashion of the Town for decades, the Health Ministry found there were all temper and ravages among people which lead to undue fights and untimely cardio- vascular deaths!!
Yes! Salt is Salt and should be a pinch in to your bunch!!
Dear Parents!
Advise is like a salt in the food!!
Put it a little!
Do not ever put it too much in to the food of your children !!
1.  They will vomit all your food.
2.  If at all consumed, it is going to arouse their Blood pressure and other dis-eases in the near future.
3.  They, in turn would do it to their children and will continue spreading the Dis-ease to the next and next generations!!!!
Just read and know the words of  Kahlil Gibran,

On Children
Your children are not your children.
They are the sons and daughters of Life’s longing for itself.
They come through you but not from you,
And though they are with you yet they belong not to you.
You may give them your love but not your thoughts,
For they have their own thoughts.
You may house their bodies but not their souls,
For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow,
which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
You may strive to be like them,
but seek not to make them like you.
For life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday.
You are the bows from which your children
as living arrows are sent forth.
The archer sees the mark upon the path of the infinite,
and He bends you with His might
that His arrows may go swift and far.
Let your bending in the archer’s hand be for gladness;
For even as He loves the arrow that flies,
so He loves also the bow that is stable.

         ( How sweet he says in his golden words….wow…great)

What is mind? What is its role in our Life?
Mind is the master of our Life!
If our Mind is not strong and positive, life would never be happy and successful !
The Mind only brings fame, money and prestige to every human being, not the physical body!
Are we living our life worthy?
If one is affected psychologically Life would be utterly meaningless though he/she acquires wealth, health, status etc.
Most of us are living our life just for the sake of living it. We do not know the real meaning and real Happiness of Life!
Our inner mind is constantly craving for recognition and appreciation from others for temporary happiness.
This craving starts from our childhood and grows till our last breathe.
Atlast we feel this life as a boring one and then get totally immersed into a kind of depressions and anxieties for ever.
At one stage we hate everyone at home, in friendship, in the office etc, and finally hated by all.
Some times we feel more fearful, confused and low-esteemed for some invisible root and causes hidden in our “Inner-Mind”.
That is why we could not involve fully in to education / career / business and bound to fail in all our efforts.
What is mind? What is its role in our Life?
Mind is the master of our Life!
If our Mind is not strong and positive, life would never be happy and successful !
The Mind only brings fame, money and prestige to every human being, not the physical body!

Patients come from all religious backgrounds and from all parts of our country and from many states for the past 15 years.

Control Stress!

By |2019-09-08T16:12:41+05:30June 16th, 2010|anxiety, psychology, stress management|

Controlling your stress is important to your mental and physical health. 
Unrelenting stress can turn to distress.
Stress is the body’s reaction to any change that requires a physical, mental, or emotional adjustment or response.
Stress is a normal part of life.
Many events that happen to you and around you — and many things that you do to yourself — put stress on your body.
Some stress can be good. It keeps us alert, motivated, and ready to avoid danger. But too much stress can make us sick.

How Does Stress Affect Your Health?

The body’s autonomic nervous system has a built-in stress response
that causes physiological changes to allow the body to combat stressful situations.
This stress response, also known as the “fight or flight response,”
is activated in case of an emergency.
However, this response can become chronically activated during
prolonged periods of stress, which can cause wear and tear on the body —
both physical and emotional.
Stress that continues without relief can lead to a condition called distress — a negative stress reaction. Distress can disturb the body’s internal balance or equilibrium,
leading to physical symptoms such as headaches, an upset stomach,
elevated blood pressure, chest pain, sexual dysfunction, and problems
sleeping. Emotional problems can also result from distress.
These issues included depression, panic attacks or other forms of anxiety and worry.
Research suggests that stress also can bring on or worsen certain symptoms or diseases. Stress is linked to six of the leading causes of death: heart disease, cancer, lung ailments, accidents, cirrhosis of the liver, and suicide.
Stress also becomes harmful when people engage in the compulsive
use of substances or behaviors to try to relieve their stress.
These substances or behaviors may include food,
alcohol, tobacco, drugs, gambling, sex, shopping, and the Internet.
Rather than relieving the stress and returning the body to a relaxed state,
these substances and compulsive behaviors tend to keep the body in a
stressed state causing more problems. The distressed person becomes
trapped in a vicious circle.

How do you find out the signs of Your Stress?

Chronic stress can wear down the body’s natural defenses,
leading to a variety of physical symptoms, including:
  • Dizziness or a general feeling of “being out of it”
  • General aches and pains
  • Grinding teeth, clenched jaw
  • Headaches
  • Indigestion or acid reflux symptoms
  • Increase in or loss of appetite
  • Muscle tension in neck, face or shoulders
  • Problems sleeping
  • Racing heart
  • Cold and sweaty palms
  • Tiredness, exhaustion
  • Trembling/shaking
  • Weight gain or loss
  • Upset stomach, diarrhea
  • Sexual difficulties

Tips to reduce Your Stress:

People can learn to manage stress and lead happier, healthier lives.
Here are some tips to help you keep stress at bay.
  • Keep a positive attitude.
  • Accept that there are events that you cannot control.
  • Be assertive instead of aggressive. Assert your feelings, opinions, or beliefs instead of becoming angry, defensive, or passive.
  • Learn and practice relaxation techniques; try meditation, yoga, or tai-chi.
  • Exercise regularly. Your body can fight stress better when it is fit.
  • Eat healthy, well-balanced meals.
  • Learn to manage your time more effectively.
  • Set limits appropriately and say no to requests that would create excessive stress in your life.
  • Make time for hobbies and interests.
  • Get enough rest and sleep. Your body needs time to recover from stressful events.
  • Don’t rely on alcohol, drugs, or compulsive behaviors to reduce stress.
  • Seek out social support. Spend enough time with those you love.
  • Seek treatment with a psychologist or other mental health professional trained in stress management or biofeedback techniques to learn more healthy ways of dealing with the stress in your life.

Uri Geller – A Living Legend !

By |2019-09-08T16:12:41+05:30April 8th, 2010|Uncategorized|

 Uri Geller (born 20 December 1946) is an Israeli paranormalist living in England; he is well known for his trademark television performances of spoon bending and other supposed physical effects. Throughout the years, Geller has claimed that he achieves these effects through psychokinesis and telepathy, though critics say they are easily replicated magic tricks.
The debate over the veracity of Geller’s performance has gone on since he first rose to international attention in the 1970s. Geller’s career as an entertainer has spanned almost four decades, with television shows and appearances in many countries. Geller used to call his abilities “psychic,” but now prefers to refer to himself as a “mystifier” and entertainer.

moves to Stein Am Rhein, three miles upriver. Mileva then moves
to Hungary to give birth to their baby at her parent’s home.
Albert moves to Bern.
1902: In January, Mileva gives birth to their daughter, Lieserl,
whom they eventually put up for adoption. She reportedly
becomes ill and then all record of her disappears. Albert takes a
job at the Swiss Patent Office. Hermann Einstein becomes ill and
1903: Albert and Mileva marry in January
1904: Mileva gives birth to their first son, Hans Albert.
1905: “Annus Mirabilis” — Einstein’s “Miracle Year”: his Special
Theory of Relativity is born. June 30th, Einstein, submits his
paper, “On the Electrodynamics of Moving Bodies” to the leading
German physics journal. At age 26, he applies his theory to mass
and energy and formulates the equation e=mc2.
1906: Still living in Bern, Einstein continues as an Examiner at
the Swiss Patent Office.
1907: Einstein begins applying the laws of gravity to his Special
Theory of Relativity.
1910: Son Eduard is born.
1911: The Einsteins move to Prague where Albert is given a full
professorship at the German University there. Albert is the
youngest to attend the invitation-only Solvay Conference in
Brussels, the first world physics conference.
1912: The Einsteins move to Zurich where Albert is given a
position as a professor of Theoretical Physics at the ETH.
1913: Einstein works on his new Theory of Gravity.
1914: Einstein becomes director of the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute
in Berlin and professor of theoretical physics at the University of
Berlin. The family moves there in April, but Mileva and the sons
return to Zurich after 3 months. The divorce prodeedings begin.
In August, World War I begins.
1915: Einstein completes the General Theory of Relativity.
1917: Einstein collapses and, near death, falls seriously ill. He is
nursed back to health by his cousin, Elsa. He publishes his first
paper on cosmology.
1919: Albert marries Elsa. May 29, a solar eclipse proves
Einstein’s General Theory of Relativity works.
1922: Is awarded the Nobel Prize in physics for 1921.
1927: Attends fifth Solvay Conference and begins developing the
foundation of quantum mechanics with Bohr.
1928: Einstein begins pursing his idea of a unified field theory.
1932: Einstein is 53 and at the height of his fame. Identified as a
Jew, he begins to feel the heat of Nazi Germany.
1933: Albert and Elsa set sail for the United States. They settle in
Princeton, New Jersey where he assumes a post at the Institute for
Advanced Study.
1936: Elsa dies after a brief illness.
1939: World War II begins. Einstein writes a famous letter to
President Franklin D. Roosevelt warning of the possibility of
Germany’s building an atomic bomb and urging nuclear research.
1940: Einstein becomes an American citizen; retains Swiss
1949: Mileva dies.
1955: Einstein dies of heart failure on April 16.
