We started using homeopathy seven or eight years ago," says Zoo vet officer Paneer Selvam. When conventional medicine fails we have trurned successfully to alternative medicine particularly Homeopathy which proved particularly helpful in two cases where Asiatic Lions had hind-quarter paralysis. A Himalayan black bear that was afflicted with the same condition a year ago was also cured with homeopathy"

Additionally the Delhi zoo has used Homeopathy successfully in the past with bears treated for bladder stones. Lets hope the injured hippo gets a little Arnica and that the use of homeopathy extends to their breeding programme - Homeopathy is much safer in this sphere than the  other drugs being used.

Can Rainy Weather
Impact Mental & Physical Health?
 

 

Rainy weather has the ability to impact on so many things and as evolved as humans are, we remain at its mercy.

Mental Health Issues

DEPRESSION: The most well known example cold wet weather has on people is depression. Rain can make the outdoors damp, cold, empty and at times unpleasant; particularly when it occurs for long periods of time. Not wanting to go outside can then lead to feeling isolated, segregated and dejected. Once a person with a mental health condition begins to experience this they can at times then escalate to feelings of claustrophobia, agoraphobia, frustration and/or anxiety.


Physical Health Issues
WEIGHT GAIN: A team from Aberdeen University found miserable weather made it harder for dieters to shed weight. Apparently reduced vitamin D levels (due to less sunshine) adversely influences the functioning of leptin which in turn controls stomach fill less efficiently

 

E.COLI: Heavy rain, particularly in rural areas, raises the risk of catching this potentially fatal bug. The concern is that farmers' slurry containing E.coli can get washed down into the water supply


ACHING SCARS: Many people with old injuries maintain that their scars ache when the weather is threatening. At such times outside pressure drops causing normal tissue to expand and contract. However since scar tissue is inelastic it is unable to adapt to pressure changes resulting in a pulling sensation that may lead to pain.

 

PREMATURE LABOUR: Low pressure can trigger complications for pregnant women.

such as high blood pressure which can influence the onset of labour. .

 

JOINT PAIN: Damp weather does seem to make joint pain and osteoarthritis worse.

This is due to the level of joint fluid fluctuating in response to atmospheric pressure changes thus triggering pain.

 

The Solution

If you suffer from any of the above conditions or are affected adversely in any way by climate try Homeopathy the natural and holistic way to cope with lifes challenges.

The most Polluted Produce
is Apples

(and onions are the most pesticide-free)

Apples


Apples are the most pesticide laden fruit or vegetable we buy, and celery and peppers are not far behind.  The ‘cleanest’ are onions, sweetcorn and pineapples, according to the Environmental Working Group (EWG), which has just published its latest survey of pesticides in non-organic foods.

The EWG researchers say they discovered detectable pesticide residues in 68 per cent of the food they sampled, including chemicals that are banned for agricultural use. Residues were also discovered in baby foods, including organophosphates that can cause neurodevelopment problems.

 

The EWG’s Shopper’s Guide to Pesticides in Produce again lists its ‘Dirty Dozen’, but also includes a list of the least contaminated foods and vegetables, which it calls its ‘Clean 15’.

Topping the list of the most contaminated were apples, followed by celery, peppers. Peaches, strawberries, nectarines, grapes, spinach, lettuce and cucumber, while the ‘cleanest’ were onions, sweet corn, pineapple, avocado, cabbage, sweet pea, asparagus, mango, aubergine (eggplant), and kiwi fruit.

Green beans, kale and collard greens had residues that placed them outside the Dirty Dozen, but organophosphate insecticides were found.

Why organic fruits and vegetables
are better for you

Organic fruit and vegetables are much better for you – and scientists have finally been able to explain why.  Organic produce are not grown with nitrogenous fertilizers, and so have to activate their own defence system, which, in turn, increases their levels of antioxidants.

For example, tomatoes that are organically grown have higher levels of phenolic compounds – antioxidants that protect against cardiovascular diseases, degenerative diseases and some cancers - than conventionally-grown ones.

Even tomato juice and ketchup processed from organic tomatoes have higher phenol levels than the more popular brands, say researchers at the University of Barcelona.

In all, the researchers found 34 different phenolic compounds in the organic tomatoes they analysed. They reckon that the greater the stress a plant experiences – by protecting itself against pests and disease – the more the polyphenols they produce.  Plants protected by insecticides don’t suffer the same stress levels – and so don’t produce the health-giving antioxidants.
