In the USA 16,500 people die every year from drugs prescribed
for Arthritic pain and inflammation. In Britain the number is around
2000 deaths every year. These NSAIDs, (non-steroidal,
anti-inflammatory drugs), which include ibuprofen and aspirin,
kill pain effectively, but irritate the stomach lining in some patients,
causing ulcers and bleeding. Severe cases may lead to death.

DO NOT BECOME A STATISTIC. Check out a treatment
that stops Arthritic pain and repairs cartilage, even as it
acts on the cause of the disease.

FROM THE HEART: A note from Jay & Roshmi

Hello ,

I'm feeling absolutely hedonistic .... we took a week off to prepare for Roshmi's return to India after a 6 month sabbatical. So now you will be getting briefs from two continents; two time zones separated by 10 hours.

Technology is wonderful isn't it? Yet, there is some old knowledge that remains true and beyond explanation or question even today! The Tibetan technique is one of such knowledge.

Looks like the Autumnal weather has finally arrived here in Toronto. Brisk winds and very cool temperatures; people bustling about in parkas, hoods and boots digesting their Thanks Giving turkey (October 14 in Canada).

Jay discovered a little known and fascinating fact the other day from the CBC weather-lady.

We had always assumed it was the change in temperature in Autumn that triggered the beautiful death dance of the leaves as they swirled to the ground, resplendent in their glorious farewell colours. But it turns out that it has nothing to do with the temperature! The trees start to prepare for winter, shedding their leaves, signalled by the slant of the sun in its new position. Remember learning about the Summer Solstice and the Winter Solstice in Geography class?

Food & Mood: We want to inform you of some important aspects of our diet. British research studies indicate a strong link between your mental well-being and the food you consume, as reported by HSI.

Foods were divided into two groups: Stressors and Supporters.

Stressors include sugar, caffeine, alcohol, chocolate, dairy products, saturated fats and foods containing wheat, in that order of importance.

Supporters include water, vegetables, fruits, oil-rich fish, nuts and seeds, fiber, protein, organic foods and whole grain foods.

Foods that cause negative moods, such as anxiety and depression, are contained in the stressors group. However, if you are allergic to any foods, they can also cause unfavorable mood changes.

The supporter group contains the mood enhancing foods.

So experiment with them to find which ones trigger your best moods. Try and find the best balance between the two groups to ensure you are both happy and well-fed! And don't skip breakfast. Remember, that is what it is: breaking a long night's fast.

Be well (and eat well),

Jay & Roshmi

PS: Waiting at airports can be boring beyond endurance! But, Roshmi found that her mood was considerably enhanced when she opted for a sandwich lunch of smoked salmon on rye from Harrods, at London's Heathrow Airport. This is a tip for anyone who plans to transit Heathrow in the near future.


There may be other reasons for being overweight, that you are possibly unaware of, such as over processed food, food sensitivity or a clogged liver.

FEATURE ARTICLE: by Andrew Cullen (from 'The Independent', UK)



[It's an uncomfortable condition that affects most men at some
time in their lives. Here, Andrew Cullen recalls his occasionally
alarming experiences as a prostatitis sufferer in search of a cure.]

Prostatitis isn't deadly, but it can be debilitating. An off-hand doctor can give you the impression that it is no big deal. Yet in a survey of men with prostatitis, 63 % reported some minor depression as a result of the condition, 10 % major depression, and 5 per cent thoughts of suicide. The symptoms are persistent and troubling without being spectacular. They wear you down rather than strike you down. Sufferers commonly report extreme fatigue; a frequent need to urinate; pain during urination and ejaculation; pain in the penis, groin, testicles or scrotum or around the perineum or anus. And there is the sensation of having a golf ball stuck up your backside. Some days, it is a hot golf ball.

"..IQ is one measure that actually improves with age.."
provided you keep working and challenging your brain!

One way to challenge the brain is to try new things !
Even better is to challenge yourself in a way that will
give you pleasure and relaxation while you tweak those
grey cells ! This game, recommended by Dr Deepak Chopra,
will give your brain a vigorous work-out .

The mattress for one's bed is a crucial purchase! For living! For loving!

And, it's equally important for one's health and well-being. A proper night's sleep as well as a correctly aligned spine can depend on your choice of mattress. It should not be too hard, nor too soft. Look for support without discomfort or sag.

To ensure that it is of the right degree of firmness conduct this test before
you decide on a mattress.

Lie down on the mattress and slide your hand flat under the hollow of your back. If it goes all the way under, the mattress is too firm. If it doesn't budge,
it's too soft. If the fingers slide under, but not your whole hand, it's just right.

To be comfortable at night and prolong the life of your mattress, use it evenly. Turn the mattress 180 every 15 days and flip it over every month.

There is more information on sleep on our web site.

Another aid to sound sleep is the Sedona Method.

It has been validated by a Harvard Medical School study,
and successful results from more than 40,000 people throughout
the world over the past 27 years, including top executives and
their staffs from large corporations like Exxon, AT&T,
Merrill Lynch, TWA, JC Penney, Marriott Hotels, the FAA,
Bristol Myers, Chemical Bank, Chase Manhattan Bank,
Lever Brothers, Monsanto and more!

PRODUCT/SERVICE REVIEW: The Aviation Health Institute


Waiting at Heathrow Airport, London, UK, for her onward flight to India,
Roshmi met Brenda Wilson of The Aviation Health Institute, U.K, and discovered the work they were doing to create public awareness of some conditions that could turn life-threatening.

The world's first independent medical research charity, started in 1996, promotes the health and well-being of air travellers worldwide. Objectives
are research and education of the public regarding aviation related health conditions.

They have campaigned tirelessly to educate the public regarding health conditions such as DVT (Deep Vein Thrombosis), and the importance of
leg room/ seat pitch.

For information on these and other conditions, take a look at their website at:


ARTICLE: by Roshmi Raychaudhuri



My childhood impressions of treatment of illnesses were of thermometers, vile-tasting tonics and unending rest! Mother had appendicitis; bed-rest intoned the doctor (after surgery had taken place). When Dad developed a heart problem he was forbidden all movement and exercise. At the hint of any illness, the doctor would poke and prod, look sombre, prescribe medication, and most important, consign the patient to 'bed-rest'.

The therapeutic value of exercise, was, however, always known to all practitioners of yoga, the Tibetan Technique and other holistic healing therapies. And they lived their lives accordingly.

Today, exercise is recommended, by all streams of healing, as the fastest route to recovery ( and prevention) of a diverse number of ailments. From minor aches and pains to serious illnesses such as diabetes, heart disease - even cancer, exercise can have a beneficial effect on many conditions.

Ailment: Age-related loss of balance and flexibility.
Suggested exercise: Yogic stretches and some of the postures in the Tibetan Technique are ideally suited for development of balance and flexibility in a slow, steady and sustained manner.

Ailment: Asthma
Suggested exercise: Yoga
It's true that exercise can trigger asthma attacks. But it can also cut the risk and frequency of asthmatic attacks by opening the airways and strengthening the lungs. Finding the routine that is right for you is important. Yoga's mind control and breathing aspects are particularly beneficial as Asthma attacks are known to be directly related to stress.However over-exertion should be avoided. Unsuitable activities, for asthmatics, are outdoor winter sports such as skiing and skating, or hiking in areas infested with allergy-inducing agents.

Ailment: Arthritis
Suggested exercise: Swimming or walking.
Activity induces the body to produce endorphins, which assist in the pain-healing process. In addition, exercise serves to strengthen the muscles around injured joints. An added bonus, exercise usually leads to weight loss which helps to fight osteoarthritis.

Ailment: Depression
Suggested exercise: Any aerobic activity.
There's no better mood-bolstering routine than a good workout. Experts recommend exercising at least three times a week. Even short bouts of aerobic activity such as cycling, repetitive exercises such as the Tibetan technique, or swimming can combat stress. Virtually any activity stimulates the release of those "feel good" endorphin hormones and can enhance mood and lift one out of depression.

Ailment: Epileptic Seizures
Suggested exercise: Gentle, relaxation-inducing routines.
A new study has determined that practice of yogic asanas and stretches are effective in the containing of frequency and duration of seizures, which are often precipitated by stress.

Ailment: Heart disease and stroke
Suggested exercise: Walking.
Lack of activity ranks as one of the leading risk factors for heart disease, the number one killer. Combined with proper diet, exercise lowers high blood pressure (which protects against stroke), besides controlling such risk factors as high cholesterol, stress and obesity. Just 30 minutes a day of moderate aerobic activity, is required. The American Heart Association also recommends weight training and practice of proven stress-busters such as meditation, yoga and tai chi, which are being increasingly used in cardiac rehabilitation.

Ailment: Menopause
Suggested exercise: Yoga and the Tibetan technique.
Hot flashes, high cholesterol, mood swings, weight gain, insomnia and bone loss can all be tackled through exercise. The Tibetan technique, also acts on the endocrine glands which are responsible for hormone levels.

Ailment: Osteoporosis
Suggested exercises: Walking, running or repetitive resistance exercises. Exercise not only helps prevent injuries from falls, but reduces age-related bone loss.
Don't leave this preventative measure till you reach a point beyond repair and your skeleton becomes too brittle to build bone mass.
The hip and thigh bones benefit greatly from walking. And lifting weights creates stronger muscles that put constant pressure on bones, which also strengthens them.
If you're not into weights, you can bone up using the Tibetan technique which incorporates some resistance exercises similar to push-ups and lunges, and stimulate bone formation.

Ailment: Obesity
Suggested exercises: Walking, dancing (standing or sitting), swimming,
and bicycling (regular or exercise bike).
The more activity you incorporate into your regimen, the faster you will lose weight. It's a simple math formula; energy burnt (through activity) must be more than energy consumed (through food).

It won't happen overnight. Be determined, set fitness goals, start slowly, & enjoy the routine & you WILL make it.

The first rule is to find an exercise you love to do. If you thrive on challenge, you may want to take up tennis or golf. If you are the reflective sort, you can try early morning walks, tai chi or any form of yoga (the Tibetan technique, too, is a form of yoga).

You'll have to listen to your body when making the choice. Whatever activity you choose, try to maintain your target heart rate for at least 30 minutes several times each week. (Doing so once every day would be most beneficial). Try meditative exercises, yogic stretches or gardening, or rhythmic exercises such as swimming, dancing, the Tibetan technique or running. These are all healing activities for mind, body and spirit.

Make sure you check with your doctor before starting any exercise program, and ask what heart rates you should target while exercising.

And, when you incorporate this all-purpose therapy into your daily routine you will see and feel the benefit almost immediately. You'll look fantastic, and feel fantastic!

Better skin, better shape, better self-esteem! Better start practicing how to handle the compliments!

Studies have found the effects of low-intensity activities to be
very favourable, although no one kind of exercise can claim
to be the best. The Tibetan technique uses weight-bearing principles,
and is an amalgam of rhythmic exercise, yoga and breath control.
We consider it very effective in addressing most of the ailments
mentioned above. It is the exercise regimen of choice for ourselves

From our Readers:


"Jay, I didn't notice any difference in the first month
of practicing the Tibetan exercises, and was getting
a bit impatient, but I stayed with it.

Now I'm really into it. My energy level has shot up,
and I am working muscles I didn't know I had.

Thank you. I'm just so impressed...................Rita"

GUEST Column : by Myriam Maytorena


"I am learning all the time.
The tombstone will be my diploma."
--Eartha Kitt


When you stop learning and fight change, you stop living. You might as well be dead because your mind has gone into a vegetative state of status quo hibernation.

My mother-in-law is getting ready to go on sabbatical. One of her projects will be to write a book based upon her research. Like she said, "If you don't use it, you lose it"

There is no other sector of our lives where this is more important than in the process of day to day learning. Making learning a habit is one of the greatest anti-aging strategies that one can adopt.

When I was at University, my focus was on development and change over the life-span with a particular emphasis on how adults and seniors cope with change. One of the most important factors that emerged was the need for a lifelong process of learning. If learning stops when we hang up our cap and gown, our intelligence will slowly start to diminish. However, if we continue to engage in challenging learning activities, IQ is one measure that actually improves with age.

Since 1900, nearly 30 years have been added to the life expectancy of individuals born in the United States, and, in the past 35 years, the number of individuals age 65 and over has expanded from 8 to 12 percent as a proportion of the total U.S. population (Lamdin and Fugate 1997). A number of factors, such as the eradication of childhood diseases, advances in medical care, and a decline in fertility rates following the postwar baby boom, have converged to create the statistical aging of the population (Manheimer, Snodgrass, and Moskow-McKenzie 1995). Furthermore, the trend of increasing numbers of older adults as a proportion of the total population is expected to continue: by 2030 a total of 20 percent of the United States' population will be age 65 or over (Lamdin and Fugate 1997). Greater numbers of older adults have stimulated discussions about how the graying of America will affect future economic and social conditions, including education.

For many years scientists believed humans were born with a certain number of brain cells that die off as we age. But recent studies have brought forth a growing body of evidence that new brain cells will form at any age if the brain is challenged and exercised and as stated above we not only grow older we can grow smarter.

When we see and hear so much about disabilities in the elderly, it would be wise to keep in mind that statistics show the vast majority of older people are in good shape, better than ever before in human history. Decline is not inevitable.

The amount and kind of learning in which older adults engage is a trend of interest to educators. A study (Lamdin and Fugate 1997) that examined all types of older adult learning "revealed that older people are learning in numbers and amounts of time expended at a rate far exceeding even [the researchers'] expectations" (p. 85). Respondents in this study spent an average of 27.86 hours per month in informal (nonclassroom-based or self-directed) learning, and 17.75 hours per month in formal (classrooms or other organized settings). A review of studies of participation in formal or organized adult education programs revealed that, although the "actual number and percentage of participants [of older adults] is still rather modest," it is expected to grow (Manheimer, Snodgrass, and Moskow-McKenzie, 1995, pp. 15-16). Currently, the largest percentage of individuals age 55 and over is in noncredit, continuing education.

The plethora of information available over the Internet both about and for older adults is a third trend related to older adults with implications for educators. Many older adults are defying the stereotype that computers are for the young and are actively engaged in using the Internet as both consumers and producers of information (e.g., Dixon 1997; Lawhon, Ennis, and Lawhon 1996). In addition, information about many aspects of aging can be found on the Internet (Post 1997). The use of the Internet by older adults is consistent with the kind of education in which they tend to engage--informal or noncredit--and educators need to consider how they can use it to support and/or deliver educational programming for older adults.

Psychologically many of us are programmed to think that when one retires from a profession that life is over. However, as my Father stated, "Retirement is getting four new tires and starting over again." The metaphor for aging is changing and many adults over the ages of 50, 60, 70 and beyond are taking on the challenge of maintaining a life of enrichment and learning pleasure.

While there are some biological events that occur that can create difficulties such as more difficulty with language acquisition, vision changes, short-term memory barriers, and reaction time, there are ways to compensate for these events. We can go on to offer to the world a new era of the "The Wise Man and The Wise Woman."

Following are a few tips to improve memory and cognition over the life span. There are also ways to improve brain function and complexity.

1. Breathe. Learning to breathe correctly increases the oxygen content to the brain and makes it more vital and healthy.

2. Exercise. Walking and other aerobic exercises increase oxygen content and circulation and improve cognition.

3. Mediation: Meditation decreases tension and relaxes the body and creates a greater self-awareness of the true condition and potential of the body. Plus it makes one less stressed and focused. Focus is an important part of short-term memory.

4. Herbal Supplements: There are decreases in certain mineral and vitamin potential in the aging body. The addition of sensible supplements will increase mental and physical acuity. (I for one could not function with out Ginko Biloba to help my short-term memory or without Melatonin to improve and regulate my sleep cycle.)

5. Taking Charge. Not giving up one's power and decision-making in one's life is the most important factor in the psychology of aging. Many folks will find that their kids try to change rolls with them. Well say NO. I may be 50, 60, 70 or, even, 100 but I am still the Mom or the Dad. Retain your sense of being in control in your life.

6. Be responsible for something beside yourself. A plant, animals, grandchildren -- responsibility for any other living organism outside of self promotes longevity and improves cognition.

7. Read something that you disagree with at least once a week and think through why you might be right or might be wrong in your assumptions.

8. Challenge people when they treat you with that veiled respect that is really solicitous ageism.

9. Volunteer. Be involved outside yourself in mentoring and helping others.

10. Be a friend and develop a strong core of friendships. Don't count on your family to be your only support system.

11. Celebrate reaching a time when you can be like a child in that your focus on world can return to the center of self rather than the center of society! You now have grown them babies and received that gold retirement watch and you can explore self you never had time to do before.

12. Create a new mission or concept about your life. I like this one. "Every day in every way I am better and better and better."

In a series of studies involving adults of various ages, psychologists found that people are least open to changing their views during their middle adult years. The studies by Penny S. Visser, PhD, of Princeton University, and Jon Krosnick, PhD, of Ohio State University, are featured in the December issue of the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology (Vol. 75, No. 6, p. 13891410).

The results indicate that the rising number of elderly in this country could create a large population of people who easily shift their viewpoints on various issues, the researchers speculate. That could create volatility in public opinion, especially in times of great public debate such as elections, they say.

As we move into our golden years and prepare for our diamond years and our platinum years and our whatever years think in a forward direction. Recognize the power that we as a population of wise older persons have over our own destiny and over the policies of our country.

Most important, at any age, is to have a dream. My mother is 97 years old. She has osteoporosis and is in pain. Her mind is like a razor. She has a plan to be on television on her 100th birthday, which will fall on Mother's Day. At 80 something she built a more comfortable home for her old age. She continues to plan for the future. Plans and goals make dreams reality. It is the reality of knowing that dreams can still come true that improves our potential to become the "Sage of our Society."

"Be who you are and say what you feel, because those
who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind."
------Dr. Seuss

******HEART TIP*****
Eggplant is a member of the healthful solanaceae family, along with
tomatoes and peppers. All three contain terpenes,which are
phytonutrients that may help deactivate tumor-causing hormones
and may prevent free radicals from damaging healthy cells.

Eggplant also appears to help reduce plaque buildup in the arteries,
which can lead to atherosclerosis and heart disease. The
potassium in eggplant also protects the heart by regulating
blood pressure and heartbeat.

'Bharta' is an Indian salad that can combine these three ingredients
(there are other combinations too). It looks like mush, but tastes
wonderful, and is very simple to prepare.
