FROM THE HEART: A note from Jay & Roshmi
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hello,

Well, in this editorial, we could reflect the general mood of doom
and gloom what with the recent suicide bombings in London, Iraq,
Egypt and wherever else terrorists chose to wreak their havoc on
innocent civilians. But we shall not! Our mood will not be
controlled by them, although that is their aim.

Our thoughts mould us and make us who and what we are. We can
think happy thoughts and immediately feel a lightening of our mood.
Or black thoughts that can speedily transport one into despair. We
can choose whether to be happy or depressed at any given moment,
such is the power of our thoughts!

Dwell briefly on that sentence for it is both important and true.

So, it is imperative that we each choose how we react mentally to
a situation, or to what someone says to us. No matter how negative
the circumstances, ensure that you put a positive slant to it. YOU
are responsible for how you are going to feel because, ultimately,
only you control your thoughts.

And is it not better to feel happy and in control?

On to lighter matters. In Toronto, I live a one minute stroll from the
shores of Lake Ontario on Queen’s Quay. From my drawing-room
window, I can see the lake expanse, filled with visiting boats, colourful
and relaxing. This is a very popular tourist area in Summer, and I see
interesting visitors from all over the world when I go on my daily
hour-long evening walk. But what I really want to mention, being
interested in natural health, is the jogging phenomenon in this locality.
The neighborhood is mixed, with exclusive waterfront condominiums
towards the East on Queen’s Quay, and more modest apartments
towards the West. And I notice that a lot of the affluent people are
into jogging. I can tell they are affluent by their jog-togs and expensive
running shoes.

And here’s the unfortunate thing. I have read extensively on the
subject and the experts all seem to agree that brisk walking is a much
healthier alternative to jogging. Pounding the concrete pavements
while jogging is hard on your feet and knees. Extremely hard! Your
feet just can’t cushion the jarring shock waves that travel up your
body, no matter how expensive your jogging shoes. If you must jog,
jog on grass in the park!

Interestingly, I recently read an article by some fitness trainers
who say it is much better for one’s heart if one runs in short
speedy sprints. Jogging for long distances, especially marathons,
can actually cause heart damage in the long run (no pun intended).

So, as I am interested in helping you stay healthy naturally,
I leave you to ponder on that subject on your next brisk walk.

Be well and happy,

Jay

FEATURE ARTICLE: Exercise Without Moving A Muscle

by : Jay Chatterjee & Roshmi Raychaudhuri
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A new research study we read about recently, published in the
'Cerebral Cortex', has set our minds abuzzing!

Researchers at the University College London (UCL) found that
the part of the brain that controls motor skills, i.e. our movements,
responds differently to the movements we have learned and
practiced consciously. To quote UCL's Patrick Haggard, "Our
findings suggest that once the brain has learned a skill, it may
simulate the skill without even moving, through simple observation.
An injured dancer might be able to maintain his skill despite being
temporarily unable to move, simply by watching others dance."

Consider the implications of these findings for those who have lost
their power of movement or motor control due to paralysis or stroke.
If one can actually maintain one's skill without consistent practice,
consider the impact of these findings on people who are unable to
practice the movements, due to disability, injury - or even sheer
laziness. They can continue to train and assimilate the benefits
of exercise without moving a muscle (provided, of course, that
they had mastered the skill prior to the circumstances that
caused them to stop).

The UCL study featured male dancers from London's Royal Ballet
and male practitioners of Capoeira, a Brazilian martial arts form.
These athletes’ brains were monitored under an MRI scanner while
they viewed short videos of either ballet or capoeira. A control group
of non-dancers also participated in the study. The researchers found
that the "mirror neuron system", the name by which the motor control
areas of the brain is collectively known, showed more activity when
a dancer saw movements he had been trained to perform than when
he saw movements he had not been trained in. The mirror system in
the non-dancers showed much less activity while watching the videos
than either of the dancers'/athletes' mirror systems. The non-athletes'
responses - very insignificant - were the same for ballet and Capoeira.

Earlier studies had already established that these mirror neurons were
activated when the body performs an action. The element that is new,
and which has changed the ramifications for the future, is the finding
that the same cells can be fired by only SEEING the action being
performed. The new study also took a long stride forward to show
that the mirror neurons responses depend on what the viewer is
physically expert at doing.

What this means, is that if you have once acquired a certain degree
of skill in any physical activity, the part of your brain that controls
movements will enable you to train by just watching the movements
you had earlier mastered and are familiar with. For instance, one can
learn the Tibetan yoga rejuvenation technique demonstrated in the
video/DVD, "Restore Your Health and Vitality", and attain familiarity
and mastery of the movements. This will allow you, if the premise is
correct, to later get the same benefits by merely watching the video/
DVD of the familiar movements being performed on screen.

We’re especially excited as the applications for the “Restore Your
Health and Vitality” video/DVD could increase multi-fold over what
we had envisioned when we first released it.

RECIPE FOR HEALTH : Bharta

-------------------------------------------------------------------

Here’s a vegetarian recipe we had published earlier, for which
there have been a number of requests: 'Bharta', an Indian
egg-plant salad loaded with phytonutrients:

A bharta can be prepared from almost any vegetable, with the
texture and tempering varying according to the base vegetable
used. The medley here is one of the most-loved combinations.

Eggplant, Green Pepper and Tomato Bharta

Ingredients:
1 kg eggplant (the round, deep purple variety)
2 large green peppers
2 large onions, finely chopped
A quarter kg tomatoes, finely chopped
1 tablespoon chopped cilantro/green coriander
2 chilies, finely chopped (omit if you cannot tolerate ‘heat’)
A half teaspoon caraway seeds
1 teaspoon allspice powder
1 teaspoon red chili powder (omit if you cannot tolerate ‘heat’)
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
Salt to taste

Method:
Coat the eggplants and peppers with a trace of olive oil, and roast
in the oven at 350F, till done. The vegetables should not char or burn.

Peel off the skins of the roasted vegetables. They should peel off
easily, but the best way is to first pop the vegetables into a bowl
of water direct from the oven, and skin them while in the water.

(When we are in a hurry, we steam the vegetables instead of
roasting. But choose to sacrifice the smoky flavour of the roasted
vegetables only if you must!)

Mash the roasted / steamed eggplant to a smooth pulp; dice the
peppers and keep aside.

Heat the olive oil in a pan/wok (take care that the oil does not burn,
as olive oil loses its therapeutic properties under high temperatures).

Add the caraway seeds, and when they splutter, add the chopped onions.
Saute till onions are a pale brown, and then add the chopped tomatoes,
salt and chilies (if using). Cook for 2/3 minutes, placing a cover over
the pan (this will help the tomatoes release their water). Add the
eggplant pulp, chopped peppers, allspice and cilantro/coriander leaves.
Remove pan cover and continue cooking till the mixture thickens to
your desired consistency.

‘Bharta’ tastes wonderful eaten with Middle-Eastern whole wheat
breads, pitta or naan, and makes an interesting accompaniment to
any main dish.

And it’s loaded with phytonutrients!

If you can't get around to cooking nutrition-packed meals for
yourself, look after yourself by ensuring that you get the
same anti-oxidants from supplements:

STARK FACTS: Fake Sex
------------------------------------------------------------------
Cockerels have discovered the secret to keeping their mates
happy, faithful, and disinterested in ...umm... other cocks.

They simply mount the hens without transferring semen.

And all parties seem satisfied - and none the worse for wear,
according to research conducted at the University of Oxford.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

LITTLE ACTIONS THAT PRODUCE BIG RESULTS:
Drink Water to Lose Weight
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Scientists at Berlin's Charite University may have stumbled
on the secret to easily shedding pounds-by drinking more water!
Professor Michael Boschmann's team found that drinking the
recommended 2 litres of water per day burnt off an average
150 calories extra each day, as a result of an increase in the
metabolic rate. Water intake was seen to stimulate the
sympathetic nerve system that regulates metabolism.
These findings have been reported in the Journal of Clinical
Endocrinology and Metabolism and quoted in the German
Men's Health magazine.

Carbonated water or other drinks had a negative results; only
still water produced the slimming effect.

So what else is effective in reducing weight?

REVIEW OF PRODUCTS: Rejuvenation Yoga DVD

---------------------------------------------------------------
Your stomach muscles determine your shape, by moulding
and holding your frame in the same way as does a corset.
Being made up of four different muscle groups, there's no
single exercise that's best for all, but the set of exercises
that makes up the Tibetan rejuvenation yoga technique is,
perhaps, among the most beneficial.

Not only do the yoga exercises strengthen your stomach
muscles, they also improve your posture, boost your energy
level and enhance your breathing. Workouts can also
strengthen your heart, bolster your immune system, lower
your blood pressure, and reduce your risk of diabetes.
In addition, the exercises will also improves your mood
and reduces your stress level.

Usually, in order to work your abs, you'd have to find
several exercises to work each of the muscle groups.
But with this DVD, learning the moves is a breeze!
You just watch the movements, and try to replicate
them at your own pace and at your own time, without
pressure. Get trim and slim. Check it out at:

GUEST COLUMN: by Anonymous

THE JAR OF LIFE
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

[A philosophy professor stood before his class and had some items in
front of him. When the class began, wordlessly he picked up a very
large and empty mayonnaise jar and proceeded to fill it with rocks
about 2" in diameter.

He then asked the students if the jar was full. They agreed that it
was. So the professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured
them into the jar. He shook the jar lightly. The pebbles, of course,
rolled into the open areas between the rocks.

He then asked the students again if the jar was full. They agreed it
was.

The professor picked up a box of sand and poured it into the jar. Of
course, the sand filled up everything else. He then asked once more
if the jar was full.

The students responded with a unanimous - yes.

The professor then produced two cans of beer from under the table
and proceeded to pour their entire contents into the jar, which the
the sand effectively soaked up. The students laughed.

"Now," said the professor, as the laughter subsided, "I want you
to recognize that this jar represents your life. The rocks are the
important things - your family, your partner, your health, your
children - things that if everything else was lost and only they
remained, your life would still be full. The pebbles are the other
things that matter like your job, your house, your car. The sand
is everything else - the small stuff.

"If you put the sand into the jar first," he continued, there is no
room for the pebbles or the rocks. The same goes for your life.
If you spend all your time and energy on the small stuff, you will
never have room for the things that are important to you. Pay
attention to the things that are critical to your happiness. Play with
your children. Take time to get medical checkups. Take your wife/
partner out dancing.

"There will always be time to go to work, give a dinner party and
fix the disposal. Take care of the rocks first - the things that really
matter. Set your priorities. The rest is just sand."

One of the students raised her hand and inquired what the beer
represented. The professor smiled. "I'm glad you asked. It just
shows you that no matter how full your life may seem, there's
always room for a couple of beers.
