Are you in the habit of reading a newspaper while sipping the morning coffee? If so, can you remember some news stories that appeared recently? The murder of a high-profile politician, an accident that killed hundreds, mutiny in a foreign country or the famine that hit thousands in an African country – you may come up with many. In a hurry to read through all these disturbing news stories, did you fail to notice a streak of hope, a report on a positive development in an environmental issue?
We are talking about the UN Report released recently, which speaks about the fall in deforestation. The report says that deforestation in India and China fell dramatically. While more than 8 million hectares of forests were destroyed in 1990s, this decade (2000-2010), experienced the deforestation only in 5.2 million hectares.
Though it is a piece of good news, we have to work a great deal again towards our aim of preserving forests and maintaining a balance in nature. Deforestation may lead to many serious environmental issues such as global warming, drastic changes in climate, an instability in the whole biosphere etc. With large scale deforestation, many herbal plants with medicinal properties have been disappeared from the earth and it poses threat to the very existence of alternative healthcare system based on herbal medicines such as Ayurveda. Such an issue will cast a shadow on the future of Ayurveda health centres too – be it an ayurvedic health resort , a hospital or a spa. Hence we have to preserve the forest for its herbal plants, rain forests, wildlife and for everything that it harbours.

Peter Mwaura Mutiti : Teaching old blood cells new tricks:
When you hear someone mention circulation you probably think of the heart and major arteries—and for good reason. Circulatory disorders such as hypertension (high blood pressure) and atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries) are major risk factors for heart disease, heart attacks, and stroke.

But there’s more to it than that. With all the attention on the heart and arteries, it’s easy to overlook serious health problems affecting the smallest components of the circulatory system—microscopic blood vessels called microcapillaries, where the critical exchange of oxygen and nutrients actually takes place. If blood isn’t flowing through this web properly, it can trigger all sorts of health problems, many of which may not seem related to circulation at all.

A number of factors contribute to poor circulation as we age. Arteries and veins become stiff and congested as cholesterol and calcium plaques accumulate and restrict blood flow. Spasms in the smooth muscles surrounding the circulatory arteries and veins can also choke off circulation. These same processes also occur in our microcapillaries, reducing microcirculation and impairing the critical exchange of nutrients and gases in tissues and major organs.

This problem only gets worse as we get older because of changes in the composition and structure of blood cells. As you reach middle age, the blood starts to thicken and congeal as platelets and blood proteins make cells sticky. Plus, the spleen—the organ that removes old, damaged blood cells from circulation—begins to slow down with age, which means new, healthy blood cells are replaced at a sharply reduced rate. And to make matters even worse, as blood cells age, they become stiff and no longer appear round and evenly shaped. This makes it harder for them to pass smoothly through the capillaries. In fact, the angular, jagged shape of the old cells can damage the fragile microcapillaries even further.

Eventually, these age-related changes take their toll on the microcapillaries, reducing circulation to the tissues and blocking the flow of nutrients and oxygen. Removal of carbon dioxide and other metabolic waste products is also hindered. This leads to a slow buildup of metabolic garbage that can gradually bury the cells in their own waste products. In time, the cells, poisoned by their own metabolic byproducts, begin to waste away and ultimately cease to function altogether.

The combined effect of poor circulation and old blood contributes to a host of symptoms, including deep fatigue, fuzzy thinking, frequent infections, and lowered sex drive—all conditions usually considered just “normal parts of aging.”

If circulation doesn’t improve, it can lead to more serious conditions, such as high blood pressure, heart attack, stroke, diabetes, and arthritis. But giving your body a fresh supply of healthy blood may target all of these problems and more.
