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

Can Rainy Weather
Impact Mental & Physical
Rainy weather has the ability to impact on so many things and
as evolved as humans are, we remain at its mercy.

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

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
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
such as high blood pressure which can influence the onset of
JOINT PAIN: Damp weather does seem to make joint pain and
This is due to the level of joint fluid fluctuating in
response to atmospheric pressure changes thus triggering pain.

are affected adversely in any way by climate try Homeopathy the
natural and holistic way to cope with lifes challenges.

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
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
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
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
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.
