  • Low functioning thyroid is a new epidemic of the society affecting more than 3% of people. If thyroid function is low, it causes weight gain, loss of energy, cold intolerance and menstrual irregularities in women.
  • All people who are aged 50 and above should have their thyroid profile (TSH test) done to look for thyroid deficiency.
  • In younger people, or in cases of infertility, menstrual irregularity, pregnancy, weight gain, one should check for thyroid deficiency.
  • Iodized salt should be used to prevent thyroid deficiency.
  • Non–iodized salt is only used in two conditions: firstly in patient with thyroid inflammation and secondly, while doing Jalneti in naturopathy, a yoga–related nasal wash technique.
  • In pregnancy, even mild thyroid deficiency can affect the growth of fetus hence dose requirement of thyroid medicine is much higher in pregnancy than in non–pregnancy.
  • In the elderly, the dose of thyroid medicine to be started is always low as compared to one in the adults.
  • If thyroid deficiency is untreated, osteoporosis (thickening of bone) and/or atrial fibrillation (irregular and fast heart rate) may result. Osteoporosis can cause recurrent fractures and atrial fibrillation may cause brain paralysis.
  • In Allopathic medicine, thyroid deficiency is treated by synthetic T4 hormone replacement. In TFSP, thyroid extracts are available, which contain both T4 and T3 potential drugs.
  • In Ayurveda, thyroid stimulant drugs are available but they are effective only if some amount of thyroid gland is available.
  • As per Ayurveda, eating soya and drinking water from copper vessel is good for thyroid.

  • Hanging is the simplest and yet highly effective method used by people who commit suicide.
  • It is the most common cause of suicide next to poisoning in women and gunshot injury in men.
  • Hanging accounts for 53% of suicides in males and 39% in females.
  • It has a high mortality rate up to 70%.
  • The materials required are easily available and of wide range and therefore it is difficult to prevent.
  • Hanging can be suspension hanging or drop hanging.
  • Suspension hanging is hanging of the body by the neck and drop hanging involves calculated drop to break the neck.
  • In suspension hanging, a person takes 10 to 20 minutes to die resulting into a painful death. Materials used are rope, bed sheet, shoe laces, telephone extension cables, and threads of the chairs/mattresses.
  • Suspension hanging causes compression of carotid artery, jugular veins and the airway.
  • In suspension hanging, 5 kg of pressure is required to compress the carotid artery; 2 kg of pressure is required to compress the jugular veins and 15 kg of pressure is required to compress the airway. Unconsciousness occurs in 5 to13 seconds.
  • Full suspension is not necessary. A person can die even with partial suspension.
  • Near hanging is the term used for those who survive.

Hindu scriptures have talked about three types of Hrin (debts) – Dev Hrin, Pitra Hrin and Rishi Hrin.

God or the devtas gave us the consciousness, parents gave us our body and teachers gave us the knowledge or intellect.

In Vedic language, our body is a mix of mind, body and soul which can be equated to three Hrins of mind (teachers), body (parents) and soul (Rishi & Gods). In computer language, it can be equated to operational software (God), application software (teachers) and computer hardware (parents).
