Under the influence of alcohol, you may lose your power of judgment. I recall one of my friends who shot himself under the influence of alcohol after his wife refused to cook food for him and his friends at 11 pm. When he said, “mujhe khana do nahin to mein khood ko shoot kar lunga”, to which she said, “shoot kar lo” and he shot himself.

Under the influence of alcohol, your crime becomes less severe. In the present gang rape case, all the accused persons were under the influence of alcohol but they were not caught at the same time. If they were caught with alcohol in their blood, their crime would have become less severe than what it would have been if alcohol was not found.

If alcohol is the major culprit than the person who invites people to drink alcohol should be punished as he was very well aware that he was inviting others to drink alcohol and after drinking alcohol, when they lose their judgment power and they may misbehave with others and indulge in violence.

If you invite people at home for alcohol party, it is your duty:

i. Not to serve more than 80 ml of alcohol

ii. Not to serve alcohol to people who have come without drivers and are going to drive back

iii. Or take their keys in your possession and get they dropped after the party

iv. Never serve alcohol to drivers and other peoples who are going to drive.

Drunken man is like a snake or an injured lion. Never heart ego of a person who is under the influence of alcohol. He may hurt you. In Ayurveda, there are three types of people Vata Pitta and Kapha. People with Vata personality can get drunk with limited amount of alcohol and people with Kapha personality can be sober even after a large drink of alcohol.

Under the influence of alcohol a person usually does not speak a lie and hence starts speaking truth which can provoke others if it does not go well with them.

However, if a drunken man commits a crime or is confronted with a powerful muscular man or a policeman, he often comes back to his senses.

People can die of hypothermia in this season. Imagine a situation when you come across two people lying in a JJ cluster area with no clothes early in the morning. One of them is shivering and the other one is not. The one who is shivering indicates that his body is trying to compensate with the low body co-temperature.

The other one, who is not shivering, may be dead, dying or normal.

Recall your naturopathy teaching “Sar Thanda, Pet Naram and Paon Garam”. If the sole of the feet and the feet are cold and the person is not shivering, this is a medical emergency. On the contrary, if the person is not shivering and the feet are warm, it is not medical emergency.

Therefore, hypothermia with no shivering and hyperthermia with no sweating are bad signs.

Indian government is envisaging compulsory treatment of some sex offenders with antiandrogenic drugs, commonly referred to as chemical castration.

Laws in several American states allow compulsory medical treatment of offenders who have committed serious sex offences. Chemical, as well as physical, castration of sex offenders takes place in psychiatric hospitals in theCzechRepublicunder the legal framework of “protective treatment.” Meanwhile, inEnglandthe Department of Health is supporting an initiative to facilitate the prescription of drugs on a voluntary basis for sex offenders in the criminal justice system.

Demand for the prescription of antiandrogens or physical castration for sex offenders is a common reaction by lawmakers and politicians when a high profile sexual crime is committed.

Whether medical or surgical, the procedure requires the participation of doctors. It also shifts the doctor’s focus from the best interests of the patient to one of public safety.

Antiandrogenic drugs and physical castration undoubtedly reduce sexual interest (libido) and sexual performance, and they reduce sexual reoffending.

Physical castration of sex offenders was carried out in several European countries in the first part of the 20th century.

Nowadays drugs are usually used alongside psychological treatment).

The main drugs used are cyproterone acetate (in the United Kingdom, Europe, and Canada); medroxyprogesterone (in the United States); and increasingly the more expensive but possibly more potent gonadotrophin releasing hormone agonists such as leuprolide, goserelin, and tryptorelin.

Although these drugs act in different ways, they all reduce serum testosterone concentrations in men to prepubertal values.

Castration, however—whether chemical or physical—is associated with serious side effects, including osteoporosis, cardiovascular disease, metabolic abnormalities, and gynaecomastia. Physical castration is mutilating and irreversible, and it carries the potential for serious psychological disturbance, although some offenders request it nonetheless.

Is there a clear medical rather than social reason for prescribing powerful drugs.

When the intensity or ability to control sexual arousal is the presenting feature—whether it manifests as frequent rumination and fantasy or strong and recurrent urges—then treatment directed towards the biological drive makes sense.

Treatment protocols can then be based on the medical indication (remembering that drugs other than the antiandrogens, such as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors, can also be effective, particularly when sexual rumination is the presenting problem) rather than on risk.

When drugs work the clinical effect is often dramatic, with offenders reporting great benefit from no longer being preoccupied by sexual thoughts or dominated by sexual drive. These drugs can also allow offenders to participate in psychological treatment programmes where previously they may have been too distracted to take part. Given the transparency of benefits and risks, there is no obvious reason why an offender should not be able to make an informed choice about drugs. [Source BMJ, 2010]

Man vachan kaya are the three fundamental principles used to define non-violence (ahimsa) and truthfullness (satya). Being truthful means whatever you are thinking, speaking and doing, it is the same.

You should be one in whatever you think, do or speak. Ahimsa is the fundamental principle of Jainism which means you should be non-violent not only in your actions but also in your speech and thoughts. Being truthful makes you Satyugi.

 Only in certain circumstances, you may differ in your thinking, speech and actions. For example, you cannot tell a patient he is going to die in the next week. Here your mind may be saying something, your speech and actions will be something else.

Any discordance in Man Vachan and Kaya ends up with guilt and suppress emotions which later on can cause blood pressure, diabetes and heart disease.

How to Eat Less And Stay Healthy?

Filed Under Wellness | Tagged With: , , , , | | Comments Off

Vedic science, Ayurveda, Homeopathy, Naturopathy, Allopathy all talk about eating less to stay healthy. Following are the ways to eat less:

1.The brain gets a signal that you have eaten only after 20 minutes, therefore, chew every bite of food at least 15 times. It not only provides enough hormones for enzymes but also sends signals to the brain. Therefore, the time spent per meal should be 20 minutes.

2. The taste buds are only on the tip and side of the tongue. If you gulp food, the brain will not get signals. Eating small pieces and chewing them properly also sends the signals through the taste buds.

3. The size of the fullness of the stomach also decides how much one can eat. The brain gets signal only when the stomach is 100% full. Therefore, one should not overeat and full the stomach to its size. Also if you eat less and over a period of time the size of the stomach will get shrunken.

Dharma Artha Kama and Moksha are the four fundamental principles of our very existence which means earning righteously with a desire to fulfill the inner happiness.

Righteous earning is called ‘Artha’ and mistakenly it is linked to materialistic money. In mythology Artha is synonymous with Lakshmi, Saraswati and Kali where Lakshmi represents righteously earned materialistic wealth, Saraswati represents wealth of knowledge and Kali represents wealth of wisdom to fight the bad in you and in the society.

In any country, it is the wealth of knowledge which is more important. India was ruled initially by warriors (Kali), later by money (Lakshmi) and in future will be ruled by knowledge (Saraswati).

It is the human resources which today decide the growth of a company and the amount of money invested. If you have good human resources, your company is going to succeed.

When we gain weight, we must acquire more strength and when we lose weight, we must lose the strength. This is a fundamental medical principle.

If we gain weight and feel week, it is a disease and when we lose weight and gain strength, we are recovering from the disease. One is not supposed to gain more than 5kg of weight after the age of 20 years. Any weight gain after that will only be due to accumulation of fat which leads to insulin resistance.

Insulin resistance does not allow food to convert into energy. In the state of insulin resistance, whatever you eat, it is converted into fat. As it is not converted into energy and you feel week. When you reduce insulin resistance by drugs or walking the metabolism becomes normal and whatever you eat gets converted into energy and you start gaining strength.
