Being very interested in alternative medicine forms like Ayurveda and being taught yoga as a part of our Academic curriculum, in our student days, I soon began to understand why the ancients in the East considered yoga to be an integral part of their lives. This book is going to introduce you to some of the more common ancient natural healing traditions practiced in the Indian subcontinent since ancient times.
I was talking to an American audience about alternative Indian medicine, when I spoke about Ayurveda and yoga. A friend immediately said, “But that is religious, and is based on Hindu practices.” 
I would like to clear up this point once and for all. These practices are definitely not based to people belonging to one religion. Besides, the people who wrote these exercises and rules for right and proper living, and practiced them millenniums ago were Aryans and they gave this knowledge in their religious and spiritual books to the people of India who were practicing Hinduism.
Practicing Hinduism? What do I mean by that?
Consider Hinduism at that time to be a way of life, practicing nonviolence and following the wise teachings of the ancient ones. It is now a full-fledged religion, incorporating those same beliefs, traditions, and way of life in their manner of living and being. The ancient knowledge of those wise ones are now being practiced, as set down in the Vedas and the Puranas.
I am definitely not a Hindu, but since childhood, I and my Hindu, Christian, Mussalman, Buddhist, Sikh and Jain Friends did all these yogic exercises every morning, during school assembly, and we never believed them to be part of a religious tradition belonging exclusively to the Hindus. 
Our teachers were sensible enough not to let even an inkling of this controversial idea blossom in our infantile, suspicious and susceptible minds, because that would mean that 17% of the students would immediately have their parents yelling “keep religion out of academics. This is unacceptable. ” 
This is an extremely touchy subject in the East.
And because we considered these exercises to be part of PT, 15 minutes of this healthy workout kept us healthy and happy throughout our childhoods and youth. We never knew that they were yogic exercises!
According to us, we were keeping healthy, in a natural manner. We definitely did not chant Hindu hymns while doing these exercises. 
That in itself would be anathema Maranatha to anybody not a Hindu, including I.
So the idea that this universal healing tradition is limited to just one peoples, is definitely wrong, and it has been started by some lazy minded people, who would rather find excuses not to do a thing rather than work out. 
So here am I –not a Hindu!- telling all my friends all over the globe how they can keep healthy, through different natural remedy practices, which have been in vogue for centuries in the Indian subcontinent.
These practices are going to include oil pulling, which is getting to be extremely popular in the West today, and also water therapy.
All this information was taken by me from an experienced Ayurvedic doctor, so that all the information that is being given to you has been time tested and has been recommended by him. But before that, you would want to know a little bit more about the terms, which I am going to be using in this book.

Chapter # 1: Intro
Thyme itself is not a plant or an herb; it is a collective name given to any one of the many flowering shrubs of the Thymus genus. Thyme is a member of the mint family and is a bushy, wood-based shrub with small yet highly fragranced, grayish green leaves followed by bands of pink or purple colored flowers in the early summers; it grows 15 – 30 cm tall and can be 40 cm wide. There are more than 350 different varieties of thyme all over the world, with French thyme or thymus vulgaris and lemon thyme being the most popular ones; further varieties are stated in the next chapters. Although there are a great many numbers of varieties, the general characteristics of each thyme are usually the same and it is only the color and dimensions that varies.In the medical community, the different species of thymes are distinguished by the composition of their essential oils.
Thyme is incredibly versatile and blends seamlessly with almost all kinds of foods, especially in combination with basil, lemon and garlic.Generally, thyme enlightens and brings up the flavor of any dish. This is the reason as to why many of the Italian and French recipes incorporate thyme in their ingredient list. In addition to its culinary benefits, thyme is also used in aromatherapy. 
The essential oils of thyme are used in many traditional as well as clinical medicines due to their anti-viral, anti-septic, anti-parasitic, anti-rheumatic and anti-fungal properties. To delve a little deeper, thyme is a very strong detoxifying agent making it an ingredient in many of the detox food items. The herb is an excellent immunity booster, encourages white blood formation and resistance to harmful organisms. Thyme is also very effective against infections, digestive and respiratory to highlight a few. It can be taken as a cure to diarrhea and infections in the vagina (including thrush) & fallopian tubes. Its power as an anti-septic can be understood from the fact that as less as 1% thyme oil can be used to make a solution to treat gum and mouth infections. In addition, thyme is also a used as relaxant due to its soothing effect on the bronchi muscles; it helps to relieve recurring cough, asthma, dry coughs, laryngitis and bronchitis. Last but not the least, thyme being a digestive herb enhances appetite, digestion and stimulation of the liver. This is the extent of the medical properties the introduction will go to; detailed accounts on the medicinal properties of thyme will be given in subsequent sections.
Thyme is considered native to Asia and southern Europe, i.e. Mediterranean basin; it has also been cultivated in Northern America and is known to thrive there as well.
According to the Georgetown University Medical Center, the prevalence of thyme as a medically viable herb can be traced as back as 460 BC when Hippocrates, also known as the father of Western Medicine recognized it and documented its benefits in his work, Hippocratic Corpus. This is why most of the civilizations on the banks of the Mediterranean were prosperous and long-lasting. Some of these include:
The Ancient Egyptians had found use of it and were mummifying the corpses of their pharaohs with it.
The Ancient Greeks used it to burn incense in their temples and in their baths; they believed of it as a source of courage.
Romans used it to purify their rooms and to give aromatic flavoring to alcoholic beverage and cheese.

If you are familiar with my magic series, you may have noticed that many of these books concentrate on just one magic herb or a magic spice, which is going to cure you. Naturally, the spices and herbs have been used since ancient times to help keep people healthy, beautiful, and also youthful.
Remember that not everybody in grandma’s time or even in the time of our ancestors could afford to go to the doctor. In fact, physicians were only restricted to people who could pay their exorbitant fees. The rest of the common crowd made do with the knowledge that had been passed down to them, by their ancestors, and also from the knowledge gained through experimenting on their own.
This is how so many natural remedies came into vogue, and so many of them proved to be successful. Many of them were quack remedies, but this was because many of the ingredients which were used here were rather astonishing, when seen by a 21st century perspective. Nevertheless, there was some particular reason, why these quack remedies proved to be successful, because they had some material in them, which was able to cure people.
Now let us take for example, the use of goose grease, for rubbing on the scalp to make the hair grow faster. Goose grease is nothing but fatty oil. It moisturized the scalp. You could get the same results by rubbing in sheep fat.
So if our ancestors did not have one thing, they made do with something approximating that item, in their opinion. So one had to use goose grease and passed on this knowledge to his descendants, the coming generations began to believe that yes, this was the product, which would make your hair grow long, lustrous, and healthy. It would also keep your scalp dandruff free.
Now, what was the reason why so many people in ancient times kept healthy, even though they lived in unhygienic surroundings? Firstly, they had a strong constitution, and did not coddle themselves. They knew the value of the sun and the fresh air, and they stayed out as much as they could. They just came home to rest, eat, and possibly recuperate, if they suffered from some ailment or from injuries.
Also, they were very particular about their diet. They enjoyed plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables. They also drank fresh milk in large quantities whenever they could, as well as ate milk products like butter, butter, milk, cheese, and cottage cheese as often as they could, and when they could afford it.
The wealth of a tribe depended on that the amount of cows and goats they had. Other livestock was also very precious, but these came paramount. Whenever people of one tribe were attacked by people of other tribes, the cry went up “cows, pigs, horses, goats and sheep first, children second.” The young children along with the animals were hidden away with the elders, who led the adults of the tribe do the fighting. This fighting was done, sometimes to the death, by the men and women of the tribe. The elders, who were unable to fight, were considered to be the people who would help the children survive, with knowledge about their ancient heritage.
This was the time when herbal lore was passed down to the generations from the elders of the tribe to the young next-generation and the youngest generation.

Facts About Horses

Are you already fond of horses at an early age? If you do, you will definitely enjoy the facts that you will learn about the strongest animal we know. 

How Horses Are Born

Just before giving birth, a young pregnant horse gets into the right position. During its delivery, you will immediately see the first front foot coming out, followed by the second foot, then its nose. After the head is seen, the shoulders and the head are next, and this is known to be the most difficult part. After this challenging part, the hind legs and hips will come out easily until the baby horse, which is called colt (boy) and filly (girl) is completely out.

Popular Terms for Horses

Horse lovers often use terms which only them can understand. For someone, who is interested about horses, here are some common terms that you need to learn:

1. Aged - this is what you call a horse that is more than nine years old already

2. Backyard horse - this is a kind of horse that does not live in a barn. Instead, it lives with its owner or master.

3. Colt - this refers to a young horse that is less than four years old and has not been castrated yet.

4. Dam - this is what you call the mother of the horse

5. Filly- this refers to a young female horse that is below four years old

6. Foal- this is a baby pony or horse that is still under its mother's care

7. Mare - this is what you call a female horse that is already more than four years old

8. Stallion - this refers to a male horse that hasn't been castrated and already more than four years old

How Old Does a Horse or Pony Get?

Unlike people, horses only have short lifespans. Normally, a horse reaches 30 years, but it can still extend up to 40 years old. To determine its age, veterinarians examine and check the incisors (teeth) of the upper and lower jaws. 

It is very normal to talk about a horse' speed. The slowest speed is called walk and a bit faster than this is called trot. If you see a little faster than a trot, it is called canter and the fastest speed is called gallop.

One of the most popular traditional creative art forms, apart from weaving, knitting, or knotted work is crochet. In Victorian times, women used to spend hours making crochet covers to cover every visible surface, including furniture, and furnishings. This is of course apart from the dresses, scarfs, shoes, doilies, purses, pillow covers and anything else of which you could think, made by just one hook and some sturdy, colorful thread. 

Well, these women did not have much else with which to occupy their time, and they were just practicing an art which has been around for millenniums. Nobody really knows where crochet originated, although people in the East have been practicing it to make delicate patterned items for millenniums. That is why this book is going to tell you about Tunisian crochet. 

Crochet came to the West, especially to Europe in around the 16th century, when the demand for delicate lace like items made women switch to this technique. But I have a feeling, that this technique was brought to Europe, much before this, by the Crusaders, coming back from the East, and it was only in the 16th century that the nuns of France, Spain and Italy began to concentrate more on this technique to produce things of beauty. 

Lace crochet is still very popular today, and the art is applied to making handkerchiefs and table linen. Even more popular today is crochet using heavy and soft and fine wool to make articles of clothing and even things for your living room. I would call them dust catchers, but they last and last. 

So is it a surprise that time and again, old lace patterns serve to stimulate ideas for producing beautiful items, which have been inspired by some creative person who decided to pick up a crochet hook and some thread and found a magical new creative technique. 

Tunisian crochet and adapting it for making beautiful creations with one knitting needle made into a hook is my contribution to this age-old technique which was going out of vogue. So you can consider this book to be a salute to Tunisian crochet, which is going to be a boon for all those people who just hate knitting, but want to knit sweaters, scarves and other items, without the botheration of two needles. 

Tunisian crochet is also known as Afghan crochet and is considered to be a mixture of crochet and knitting. Ladies normally made a number of shapes on their hooks and when they had made 50 or so squares of the same size, they stitched them together to make huge shawls and wraparounds. These are the so popular Afghans which you wear today. 

So if you are crocheting squares with a crochet needle, intending to join the strips together with cross stitches to make an afghan, try making it in Tunisian crochet.

The New York Times bestselling author of Complications examines, in riveting accounts of medical failure and triumph, how success is achieved in a complex and risk-filled profession

The struggle to perform well is universal: each one of us faces fatigue, limited resources, and imperfect abilities in whatever we do. But nowhere is this drive to do better more important than in medicine, where lives are on the line with every decision. In his new book, Atul Gawande explores how doctors strive to close the gap between best intentions and best performance in the face of obstacles that sometimes seem insurmountable.

Gawande's gripping stories of diligence, ingenuity, and what it means to do right by people take us to battlefield surgical tents in Iraq, to labor and delivery rooms in Boston, to a polio outbreak in India, and to malpractice courtrooms around the country. He discusses the ethical dilemmas of doctors' participation in lethal injections, examines the influence of money on modern medicine, and recounts the astoundingly contentious history of hand washing. And as in all his writing, Gawande gives us an inside look at his own life as a practicing surgeon, offering a searingly honest firsthand account of work in a field where mistakes are both unavoidable and unthinkable.

At once unflinching and compassionate, Better is an exhilarating journey narrated by "arguably the best nonfiction doctor-writer around" (Salon). Gawande's investigation into medical professionals and how they progress from merely good to great provides rare insight into the elements of success, illuminating every area of human endeavor.

The revolutionary, New York Times bestselling guide to the powerful lifestyle changes that fight and prevent cancer—an integrative approach based on the latest scientific research
“A common-sense blueprint for healthy living.” —Chicago Tribune
“Resonating with cancer support communities and recommended nationwide.” —Los Angeles Times
“Life affirming . . . filled with practical advice.” —The Seattle Times
David Servan-Schreiber was a rising neuroscientist with his own brain imaging laboratory when, in the middle of an equipment test, he discovered a tumor the size of a walnut in his own brain. Forced to confront what medicine knows about cancer, and all that we still do not know, Servan-Schreiber marshaled his will to live and set out to understand the complex inner workings of the body’s natural cancer-fighting capabilities. He soon found himself on a decades-long journey from disease and relapse into scientific exploration and, finally, a new view of health.
Anticancer is at once the moving story of one doctor’s inner and outer search for wellness and a radical exposition of the roles that lifestyle, environment, and trauma play in our health. Drawing on the latest research in integrative medicine that blends conventional and alternative approaches, Servan-Schreiber concisely explains what makes cancer cells thrive, what inhibits them, and how we can empower ourselves to prevent their growth. His advice details how to develop a science-based anticancer diet (and the small changes that can make a big difference); how to reap the benefits of exercise, yoga, and meditation; which toxic, unsafe products to replace in your home; and how to stave off the effects of helplessness and unhealed wounds to regain balance.
Anticancer’s synthesis of science and personal experience marks a transformation in the way we understand and confront cancer. A long-running bestseller that has changed the lives of millions around the world, Anticancer remains a pioneering and peerless resource, an inspirational and revolutionary guide to “a new way of life.”
